If Meltzer didn't outright deny it there's probably atleast some talks going on.

Could be anything, maybe even ROH streaming on the network.

I was talking about a singles run for bully ray. Sydal should be rehired and placed in cw division. But it's cool that you have a Chris Kanyon quote under your avatar.

re: WWE in talks to buyout ROH - Mainly for the Library

I hate this. When you were living it ROH was just a very Awesome indy. Looking back it was the beacon of Pro-Wrestling in America. Especially those 2004 to 2009 years. Just beautiful stuff during those years for a fan of Pro-Wrestling.

A Wrestling company inspired by Japanese Wrestling. I almost think it would be huge now if those same guys, at those ages, with those matches, would have been doing it NOW.

and as always, any company selling out or going out of business is never good for the business as a whole. Might be good for IMPACT though if guys can get out of their contracts.

Im gonna wait to hear what Meltzer has to say before I decide who's right or wrong.

No one is forcing you to watch anything.

I personally would love it if WWE bought out ROH. Would love to have that ROH library on the network to see all the old stuff between Bryan, Punk, Joe etc....

Cant stop the machine

Talent leaving left and right?
Rumors of a WWE purchase?

Not too long ago that was TNA; now it's ROH? If it happens, then this is bad news for wrestling.

Closing time. Every new beginning comes from some other beginning's end.

The machine has made wrestling in America the most irrelevant it's ever been from a mainstream and pop culture aspect. No one cares but us. Everyone else has abandoned them. Their dirt-cheap Network that is available worldwide can't even hit a poultry 2 million subs even with the vault they have. Sad.

This the same way TNA and ROH popped up in WCWs demise is how something will pop up if ROH went away

TNA & ROH popped up after a major boom period for the industry. Who's gonna pop up when wrestling is so irrelevant now in the US?

Anyways I hope this isn't true, as this would be awful news for the industry. ROH has had some major faults in the last few years but they're an alternative to WWE in the US, & wrestling doesn't need to lose any of its alternatives.

I dont give a shit who has abandoned ship. As long as I like what I see thats all i care about. You can say sad all day long. WWE is not going anywhere for a long long time and you know that.

re: WWE in talks to buyout ROH - Mainly for the Library

Right and truly how successful have TNA or ROH been? With this story both of them have now has buyout speculation in the last few months.

TNA came the closest in 2010 and they didn't even come anywhere close. This isn't just about survival, it's about someone thriving to the point where wrestling becomes exciting and relevant again.

No one should be excited about this story.
