What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

WWE is obviously still king, and despite running just 1 show, hard to say AEW isn't #2 right now. So which do you guys think is #3 right now in North America? Despite falling on hard times, I'd have to say ROH.

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

this is tough, Id have to go with Impact though, they do have a pretty solid talent roster, and I like a lot of the innovative stuff they do like the twitch gig to cut corners and production costs.

RoH for me. Product isn't great, but it is rather consistent. Main reason why I don't watch Impact anymore is that every few months someone is going to leave, sometimes even major players.

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

there isn't a number 3 right now

everyone else is neck and neck, just above water, in their own territory

Despite what you may have heard about so-called "smark marks" and the "IWC" some of us are actually here to help. All you have to do is ask.

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

It's hard to say, but I would have to go with Impact. But an argument could be made for ROH too. I would rank it this way:

1. WWE
2. AEW
3. Everyone else

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

I mean, it's ROH. It has to be doesn't it.

Impact, while rebuilding itself nicely over the last couple years basically has zero touring and tapes TV once a month with a big show every few months. Not to mention being on destitute network. And MLW, while certainly growing, is kind of the same way at least in touring.

ROH is still a touring brand (though of course not as much as WWE), has the history, has the NJPW connection, etc.

As far as Iím concerned...

1) WWE
2) AEW
3) ROH when you consider the NJPW connection

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

last time I checked Mexico is in North America so in terms of popularity CMLL and AAA blow ROH, Impact and MLW out of the water.

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

I'd still go with Impact, considering they're still well more known, and the deals they have internationally in terms of TV channels. Alongside that, they have a talented roster, as well as pretty good storylines right now it seems.

Re: What's the #3 North American Wrestling Promotion Right Now?

Aaa with the slight edge over cmll because AAA at least try to be diverse.
