Getting rid of Davey Richards can only be a good thing for the entire independent scene. The man's style has been a massive negative influence on up & coming wrestlers for the last 4-5 years & I'm not sure the damage will ever be undone. Meanwhile, WWE developmental has one hell of a reprogramming job on its hands.

There are still Roddy, Cole, Elgin, Steen, Kyle, Fish, ACH, M. Hardy, Corino, Jacobs and Ciampa. Plus the freelancers liek London and Kendrick maybe. It's not much, but it's a decent base. They also better beg Cabana to come back. Indy scene is always loaded with great talent, you just gotta find it, and then fucking use it properly. There's always a Bryan Danielson working in obscurity somewhere, waiting to get noticed.

ROH's problem is not the lack of talent, it's the lack of brains in booking department (lolCornette, lolDelirious), and the lack of fucks given by SBG.

Their biggest problem is they have no identity right now. What is ROH? Who is ROH? Who's THE guy in ROH right now? Just look at the names they've been annoucning for their title tournament. Half of the them aren't even current ROH names.

As long as SBG is seeing a profit off of ROH I doubt that they'll care much; the past two years is probably the first time ROH as a promotion has ever been profitable and they still do good numbers. The plug will be pulled on ROH when SBG wants to, no one else.

There is still plenty of talent in the indies though not to mention they still have a strong roster, Delirious just sucks at building/cultivating new talent and has to make up for that by bringing in outsiders.

Default Re: ROH losing alot of their stars?

It would be a negative impact, but if they came back from losing CM Punk, Brian Danielson, Samoa Joe, Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, AJ Styles, Chris Hero, Claudio Castignoli, Tyler Black, Jay Lethal the first time, Delirious and Nigel McGuiness not wrestling, then I think losing Generico, Briscoes wouldn't be THAT big a deal.

Rhett Titus wouldn't be missed. Davey & Eddie would be, but they have Fish & O'Reilly who I see becoming carbon copies of them anyway. Bennett is an interesting one, he's good to go but whether he does, who knows? He has faltered as of late anyway.

What I mean is that no way is the loss of anyone at the moment as effective of who they've lost in the past. They managed to make Indy stars of the stars they had on their undercard at that time, so they can do it again.

HOWEVER, in contrary, so many current ROH stars are interchangable as it is, so they can make a change but whether they make it positively then who knows? Except for Steen, if they lose these these guys then there aren't many viable champions on their roster which is why they're bringing in former talent/new talent for the tournament they're having now.

I'm sorry, but Matt Hardy in 2013 isn't a world champion in a wrestling company that has young up and coming stars. It would be like... Billy Gunn becoming ROH champ in 2006.

It's survivable if they lost all of them definitely, a working relationship with NJPW is a good start.

And more than half aren't even quality enough to hold a promotion as champion. The issue isn't in them losing stars, the issue is in building credible new talent.

That's been the issue ever since 2008 really.

Like Yoda said in the end the only thing that matters to SBG is having a show that fills time that gets decent ratings in the slots they put it in so if it does that and the quality suffers, they don't care. As for the booking, all you have to do is look at the tag title (reDRagon have beaten every team so they have to build the Wolves back up and bring in The Forever Hooligans to fill out shows), the tv title (going from Adam Cole and good matches to a guy who's female manager is far more over and talented then him) and the SCUM angles to see why ROH feels like it's in a downturn.

Davey says he is leaving or retiring every year. I doubt the WWE are signing the Briscoes either. I guess TNA could pick them up, but I wonder if they'd even pay them much more than ROH does at this point. TNA seems to get all of their talent on the cheap. Aries probs wouldn't have even ended up there if he hadn't burned all his bridges elsewhere.

idk about Eddie Edwards. I'd rather see him in WWE than Davey Richards though.

the fact that WWE didn't take Cole or Bennett tells me they aren't taking Davey or Eddie though. I could be totally wrong on that and Bennett seems to be screwed for life b/c Maria has beef with the Bella Twins.
