I don't think so. It seems The Bucks have some type of part-time (sound familiar? ) gig with ROH and even if they were forced to choose between ROH & PWG, I think The Bucks would choose PWG over ROH due to:

1) connection and history they have there in Reseda
2) past rocky relationship with ROH
3) good money (according to them) made in NJPW.

No one is picking PWG over ROH . That would be bad business . The Bucks have stated on the Kevin Steen show that their bookings for NJPW come first . Then the Bucks call ROH and let them know when they are available . Then the Bucks fill in with indy dates. PWG is an indy , ROH is not. ROH is running 46 dates this year , ROH owns over 100 tv stations , has PPV , has a relationship with NJPW and can pay a lot more than PWG . At the end of the day PWG is a couple of guys running out of an American Legion hall , while ROH is part of a multi- billion dollar publicly traded corporation . That just reality .

The Bucks have a good relationship with ROH . These men have families and bills to pay . No one is turning down ROH because they are friends with Super Dragon.

PWG bought this on themselves . They were told not to job out ROH talent , yet did so anyway . Now PWG will have to create their roster with their own money if they want to survive .

My keyword was if.

Thanks for clearing things up though.

Re: Official PWG Thread

As I stated on the previous page, there is plenty of talent that PWG can get to replace the ROH guys. Besides its not like ROH has an eye for talent anymore so I wouldn't worry about ROH grabbing the best free agents.

Favorite in WWE:Daniel Bryan. Antonio Cesaro. Shield. Dolph Ziggler. Cody Rhodes. Wyatt Family. Bad News Barrett. Rob Van Dam. Brock Lesnar. The Usos. Goldust

Favorite in NXT:Sami Zayne. Adrian Neville. Fergal Devitt. Kenta. Solomon Crowe. Kalistro. Kevin Steen. Enzo Amore. Colin Cassady. Tyson Kidd. Justin Gabriel

Favorite in TNA:The Wolves.Samoa Joe.Kurt Angle. Bobby Roode.Austin Aries.Low Ki.Jeff Hardy. Manik.James Storm

Favorite Indy:Adam Cole. Inner City Machine Guns. Briscoes. Matt Sydal. Trevor Lee. AJ Styles. Michael Elgin. Johnny Gargano. AR Fox. Young Bucks. Andrew Everett. Redragon.

Favorite in JapanKota Ibushi.Shinsuke Nakamura. Kazuchika Okada. Hiroshi Tanahashi. Kenny Omega. Time Splitters. BXB Hulk. Yamato. CIMA. Shingo. Naomichi Marufji. Zach Sabre Jr

Re: Official PWG Thread

I have mixed reactions on the whole ROH guys not competing in PWG thing. Imo, I only really started liking this promotion once the ROH and other big indy names started coming in on a regular basis. I really don't want to see the likes of Peter Avalon and Ray Rosas main eventing a show. On the other hand though, a lot of matches are recycled to the point where it feels like ROH-lite. Maybe it will give PWG an opportunity to develop the next best damn thing indy wrestling. I'm talking about Trevor Lee of course.

Re: Official PWG Thread

No Elgin? Awesome news actually.

The Bucks are successfully freelancing and obviously aren't going to sign ROH's shitty contracts.

Re: Official PWG Thread

would definitly be a big hit for PWG, but they would survive and still put on solid shows. But would definitly hurt.

Young Bucks, Busick, Gulak, Uhaa, Ryan, LaRae, Lee, Cage, Hero, Taylor, Gargano.

I'd watch that indy.

Just to clarify the poster you were responding to didn't mean that ROH itself is a billion dollar company, he was referring to the fact that ROH is now owned not just by "some guy" or group of guys like a real indy company, they are owned by Sinclair Broadcasting which is a huge media conglomerate that owns a shit load of TV stations and is worth a lot of money. ROH apparently is nicely profitable and I'd safely say they're probably worth a few million but definitely nowhere near a billion, hell WWE is barely even a billion dollar company.
