I wonder what the chances are that Cole shows up for the G1 in Cali this year, if he hasn't already signed with the E.

Maybe the Omega match that we all want?

so here's my review of the Ring of Honor/NJPW "War of the Worlds" show in Toronto tonight.

Ring of Honor/New Japan Pro Wrestling “War of the Worlds”
Date: Sunday May 7th, 2017
Venue: the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto, Ontario
T-shirt worn: Kenny Omega “Final Fantasy VIII ‘G1’”
Commentators (not that I could hear them): Ian Riccaboni, Kevin Kelly and Colt Cabana

The Rebellion vs. the Motor City Machine Guns
This was a decent opener. Caprice Coleman has become one of my favourite “unsung heroes” of the under-card and it was nice to see him not only get in some good offence but also actually win a match. Shane Taylor came out on behalf of the Rebellion but he didn’t do too much. He probably interfered and helped them win but I can’t remember.
Winners: the Rebellion
After the match Shane Taylor got on the microphone and said he wanted his match RIGHT NOW. For whatever reason the other members of the Rebellion left.

Shane Taylor vs. Hirooki Goto
This match had potential but fell mostly on deaf ears. It was actually a really good match. When it was hot it was HOT but there were quite a few moments of “pin drop silence”. The finale got the crowd going.
Winner: Hiroki Goto

Chaos (Trent Beretta, Rocky Romero & Gedo) vs. Dalton Castle & the Boys
This was the first match that got the crowd off of their hands for a good portion of its time. Mainly due to Dalton Castle. The Boys both took vicious beatings at different times in the match. I kinda wish I was sitting on the other side of the arena as I was sitting right in Dalton and the Boys corner. Trent is a pretty funny guy and I’d have rather heard his banter when he wasn’t in the ring. This was a good, fun match.
Winners: Dalton Castle & the Boys

Punishment Martinez vs. “Hangman” Adam Page vs. Bully Ray
This was another fun match. Most of it was playing off of Bully Rays past with either Page or Martinez filling the role of D-Von Dudley, sometimes double crossing Bully though.
Winner: Bully Ray

Will Ospreay vs. Cody
I’m not a fan of either of these guys for various reasons (I don’t like Ospreays overly choreographed matches and don’t get “it” with Cody) but they both won me over with this match. Cody played a good heel and got in some great offence that I’d never seen him use in his time with the WWE and Ospreay was still jumpy-flippy but not to the ridiculous levels as he did with Ricochet.
Winner: Cody

[intermission]

The Kingdom vs. los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito and Bushi)
This match wasn’t very good. The Kingdom just doesn’t do anything for me and Naito just seemed to not really be into it tonight. Bushi was fucking useless. As a tag team partner are you not supposed to stand on the apron? Well he stood on the floor for most of the match. I wasn’t impressed with this match.
Winners: los Ingobernables de Japon

Silas Young & the Beer City Bruiser vs. los Ingobernables de Japon (EVIL and Sanada) vs. the Briscoes
This was a really good match but it was pretty much all the Briscoes and Silas and the Bruiser doing all the work. I’m sorry to any of their fans reading this but EVIL and Sanada were fucking useless. They have cool masks during their entrances. That’s all I got out of this team. The rare times they were in the ring during this match showed me a bit of cool offence but they may as well have not been there. Mark Briscoe got his ass destroyed during this match and the person who had the best showing was actually the Bruiser. I threw a green streamer during the Briscoes entrances and I’m not sure but it may have hit Jay, possibly in the face. I didn’t watch. I was too busy cowering in fear and pointing at my wife.
Winners: the Briscoes

Kushida vs. Jay Lethal
This match got really good towards the end but it had the unenviable spot of following up a good match and going on before Kenny Omega. The whole feeling was “okay, do your thing and get out of the way so Kenny Omega can come out”. I felt bad for them because they put on a really good match and it did get the crowd hot towards the end. But they got the “womens match at a Wrestlemania” spot on the card and reaction. Until the end. The last five minutes were really good.
Winner: Kushida

Hiroshi Tanahashi, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian vs. the Elite
The whole card had built up to this match. I felt really bad for Hiroshi Tanahashi, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. One is a legend, the other the reining Ring of Honor Champion (as well as a legend) and the last a travelled journeyman who deserves more recognition than he gets. Tanahashi came out to a decent pop but the other two came out to apathetic crickets. The Young Bucks came out to a huge pop but the crowd went nuclear for Kenny Omega. So the roles of “face” and “heel” were reversed for this match. And what a match it was. Again, Tanahashi, Daniels and Kaz were “served” for most of the match. They still got all their big spots in and even more, but if this match was thirty minutes (which I think it was) it was twenty-five minutes in favour of the Elite. The Bucks were “the Bucks” and Omega was “Omega” but it was turned up to twelve tonight. It was far from a technical masterpiece. There may have been a submission hold or two (I honestly can’t remember) but it was basically just a spotfest with a dose of comedy and Omega hitting all of it (most notably some vicious Dragon Suplexes and the One-Winged Angel), but turned up. It was probably the most fun I’ve ever had watching a match live. I didn’t want it to end.
Winners: the Elite
After the match Omega got on the microphone and thanked the crowd for coming out and promised to come back again. Then him and the Bucks hocked their merchandise and YouTube channel.

Honestly, this was the Kenny Omega show tonight. Everything was built around him. The line-up for photos and autographs was (I’d imagine) mostly for him, half the t-shirts in the crowd were some variations of his or his various groups (hey, I was guilty too) and his pop eclipsed everyone else on the cards combined. The rest of the card had some very good very fun moments and matches. The three-way match with Page, Martinez and Bully Ray was fun to watch. The Cody verses Will Ospreay match was very good, as was Lethal verses Kushida. And the three-way tag team match was a good tag team match (since los Ingobernables de Japon were fucking useless). But the main event made up for anywhere the card may have faltered or fallen a bit flat and made going worth going just on its own.

Dark Match:
The Fraternity w/Alicia vs. Will Ferrara & Cheeseburger
This was a dark match and was fine. I think it was there more to tell people to get to their seats because the line up for autographs was still pretty long when it started.
Winners: Will Ferrara & Cheeseburger

My seats were good. I was in the front row left of the entrance ramp. In WWE language “hard camera side”. One thing that pissed me off was I bought the tickets via select a seat and purposely picked seats that were (if the stage could be considered twelve o’clock) at seven o’clock and they moved the seat numbering so I was sitting at ten o’clock. That sounds weird but if the seats were numbered 1-25 north to south when I bought my tickets I purposely bought seats 20 and 21. Well when I got there they had changed it to the seat numbering going 1-25 south to north. So a lot of the action of guys doing spots jumping out of the ring or throwing each other into the barricades was out of my line of site, when I purposely bought tickets to have it right in my line of site. There were spotlights in my eyes and everything was hard to see all night, but that would have happened regardless of if they moved the numbering around. Still, I was front row so I can’t complain.

The place was packed and I believe the show was sold out. But it was all because of the NJPW guys and specifically Kenny Omega. I’ll definitely go to a Ring of Honor show again with or without them being there. But they won’t get this crowd without them. The undercard was a solid card but the main event made it.

After all the ballyhoo surrounding him I didn’t even notice that Adam Cole wasn’t there.

Holy shit!!!! What a fucking night. The main event was crazy!

I went with no tickets, then when I got there a worker told me that they're selling tickets for $40 CAD, bought 2 and went straight to the front (after I met Kenny & took a pic with him of course, very humble & sweet guy), I had to stand up the whole time but I was front row so it was worth it.

After the show was over, I saw Kushida sitting at the table, I went up to him and asked him if I can get a picture, he said "tindorars" or something, I was like "What does that mean?" (I thought he was speaking Japanese for a sec), then he pointed at the sign that said "$30", then I realized he said Ten Dollars lol. I was like nah see ya! But he's a very nice guy.

I'll probably post some pictures & a review tomorrow. Just wanna sleep now. Left home at 2:30pm & came back at 2am. Gotta wake up at 7am.

Wow, KUSHIDA beats Lethal when he was a week out from a World Title shot. Didn't expect that.

Sinclair is buying Tribune Media Company for approximately $3.9 Billion

BALTIMORE and CHICAGO, May 8, 2017 -- Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (SBGI) ("Sinclair") and Tribune Media Company (TRCO) (NYSE: TRCO) ("Tribune") today announced that they have entered into a definitive agreement under which Sinclair will acquire 100% of the issued and outstanding shares of Tribune for $43.50 per share, for an aggregate purchase price of approximately $3.9 billion, plus the assumption of approximately $2.7 billion in net debt.

Under the terms of the agreement, Tribune stockholders will receive $35.00 in cash and 0.23 shares of Sinclair Class A common stock for each share of Tribune Class A common stock and Class B common stock they own. The total $43.50 per share consideration represents a premium of approximately 26% over Tribune's unaffected closing share price on February 28, 2017, the day prior to media speculation regarding a possible transaction; approximately 14% over Tribune's 30-day volume weighted average closing stock price; and approximately 8% over Tribune's closing share price on May 5, 2017, the last trading day prior to today's announcement.

Tribune owns or operates 42 television stations in 33 markets, cable network WGN America, digital multicast network Antenna TV, minority stakes in the TV Food Network and CareerBuilder, and a variety of real estate assets. Tribune's stations, a list of which is available in Tribune's most recent Form 10-K filed on March 1, 2017, consist of 14 FOX, 12 CW, 6 CBS, 3 ABC, 2 NBC, 3 MyNetworkTV affiliates and 2 independent stations. The group includes stations in the top three DMAs in the country, seven in the top 10 and 34 in the top 50 DMAs.1

"This is a transformational acquisition for Sinclair that will open up a myriad of opportunities for the company," commented Chris Ripley, President and CEO of Sinclair. "The Tribune stations are highly complementary to Sinclair's existing footprint and will create a leading nationwide media platform that includes our country's largest markets. The acquisition will enable Sinclair to build ATSC 3.0 (Next Generation Broadcast Platform) advanced services, scale emerging networks and national sales, and integrate content verticals. The acquisition will also create substantial synergistic value through operating efficiencies, revenue streams, programming strategies and digital platforms."

"This will be the largest acquisition in our company's history, and I want to thank everyone from the Sinclair team, as well as our advisors and bankers who made this possible," commented David Smith, Executive Chairman of Sinclair. "Television broadcasting is even more relevant today, especially when it comes to serving our local communities. Tribune's stations allow Sinclair to strengthen our commitment to serving local communities and to advance the Next Generation Broadcast Platform. This acquisition will be a turning point for Sinclair, allowing us to better serve our viewers and advertisers while creating value for our shareholders."

"Today's announcement is the culmination of an extensive strategic review, which has delivered significant value to our stockholders," said Peter Kern, Tribune's Chief Executive Officer. "Since we announced the strategic review 15 months ago, we have streamlined the business, monetized non-core assets, strengthened our balance sheet and returned more than $800 million to stockholders -- all of which has resulted in a 50% increase in stockholder value. We are extremely proud to join Sinclair, and we're excited that Tribune stockholders and employees will have the opportunity to participate in the long-term growth of the combined company."

The transaction has been unanimously approved by the Boards of Directors of both companies and is anticipated to close and fund in the fourth quarter of 2017. Completion of the transaction is subject to approval by Tribune's stockholders, as well as customary closing conditions, including approval by the Federal Communications Commission ("FCC"), and antitrust clearance.

Sinclair expects to fund the purchase price at closing through a combination of cash on hand, fully committed debt financing to be provided by JPMorgan Chase Bank, N.A., Royal Bank of Canada, Deutsche Bank AG New York Branch and Deutsche Bank Securities Inc. and by accessing the capital markets.

In order to comply with FCC ownership requirements and antitrust regulations, Sinclair may sell certain stations in markets where it currently owns stations. Such divestitures will be determined through the regulatory approval process.

Including the Tribune acquisition (before any related divestitures), all previously announced pending transactions, and pro forma for expected synergies, Sinclair's 2015 and 2016 media revenues would have been $4.070 billion and $4.603 billion, respectively. The $6.6 billion enterprise value represents an average pro forma EBITDA multiple of less than 7.0x on the core television and entertainment business and is expected to add over 40% pro forma 2016/2017 free cash flow per share accretion2.

Huh, wonder if these means the show will be seen in more homes now? Tribune owns WGN America which is a recognizable channel on Direct TV and DISH (I recognized the name at least :p).

ROH "War of the Worlds" NYC - Preview

Four Corners Survival Match
KUSHIDA vs. Dalton Castle vs. Bobby Fish vs. Silas Young




Love KUSHIDA, I think everyone is in agreeance that he could've been used much better than this. However this should be a really fun match. It seems like Dalton always finds himself in these Four Corner matches and of course there's a strong chance that he wins here. Another option is Silas Young who came off of a great 2016 but he is in a semi-feud with the final comabatant in this match who is one Bobby Fish. No chance that Fish wins seeing as he is a free agent and this could be one of his last shows.

Prediction: Dalton Castle

Frankie Kazarian v. Hangman Page



This match stems from Frankie betraying Bullet Club by costing Adam Cole his world title against Christopher Daniels at 15th Anniversary. Something that did not sit well with the Hangman. Since then Hangman cost Frankie his TV Title shot against Marty Scrull. This is a match that can go either way as Frankie could extract revenge or the Hangman could gain more momentum.

Prediction: Hangman Page

Triple Threat – Non Title
IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions War Machine vs. Los Ingoberbales de Japon (EVIL & Sanada) vs. Search and Destroy (Jonathan Gresham & Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley)




This could be a really fun match. A great mesh of physicality and technical presence. The non-title stip makes the outcome a lot more up in the air. I expect some stiff work from War Machine & LIJ.

Prediction: EVIL & Sanada

Will Ospreay vs. Jay White




This should be an excellent exhibition from two of the brightest young stars in ROH. Problem is, both of the guys kind of need the win here. Jay White has cooled down a lot since he lost his 9 month undefeated streak & Ospreay hasn't done much since dropping the TV Title. The plus though is they have kept the work rate high, they had some fun exchanges in a tag match and they've been putting out the good singles matches almost every time such as Ospreay v. Dragon Lee & White v. Adam Cole. This should be an incredible 11 minute match.

Prediction: Jay White

ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championship Match
Chaos (Goto & Roppongi Vice) vs. Bully Ray & The Briscoes (c)




The Briscoes/Bully Ray have actually put out some fun work since winning the six man tag titles, so I expect this to be no different. I think the X-factor is obviously Goto, can't wait to see him mix it up with Jay boy that'll be physical. A title change isn't very likely here though.

Prediction: Briscoes/Bully Ray

ROH World Tag Team Championship Match
The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Johnson) (c) vs. Los Ingobernables De Japon (NAITO & BUSHI)




This'll be interesting for two reasons. The first being getting to see interactions between Naito & The Bucks, how can that not be incredible? The other reason is because BUSHI has been extremely vocal about his dislike of The Bucks in NJPW's junior tag division. Comments have already been spewed by The Bucks on twitter. Should be awesome though.

Prediction: The Young Bucks

ROH World Television Championship
Marty Scurll (c) vs. Matt Sydal




Similar to a lot of Marty's defense, not a huge story there just an interesting name. Yeah there's been something on TV but not much and with Sydal appearing on Impact who knows if he's even gonna stay on ROH. I would love an actual feud for the TV Title but who knows if that's gonna happen. But we all know this is gonna be awesome, Marty has had a solid run of TV champ his best title defense happening against Cole at SCOH a good match against Sonjay, good match against Dijak etc. So I expect this to be awesome, slim chance of any title change.

Prediction: Marty Scrull

"The Ace of NJPW" Hiroshi Tanahash v. "The Face of ROH" Adam Cole



The most decorated world champion in New Japan v. The most decorated world champion in ROH. Adam Cole has been saying for years that his dream match was Hiroshi Tanahashi and he's finally getting. You have to expect that were gonna see quite possibly the best Adam Cole we've ever seen, he's on a great run in his final ROH matches and with him getting his dream match he's gonna work harder than ever. Tanahashi is obviously one of the more popular NJPW stars to appear in ROH so that means the Ballroom is gonna be electric. If you were going to bet money on a match that was gonna steal the show and be an all time ROH classic, it's this one.

Prediction: Hiroshi Tanahashi

ROH World Championship Christopher Daniels/Matt Taven vs. Cody vs. Jay Lethal



Cody made his wants clear at Supercard of Honor by attacking CD. Jay Lethal who won a number one contenders match personally believes it should be 1 on 1 with the champ but Cody convinced CD to put him in the match. Now all men are pissed at each other which is going to make for interesting matchup. But wait, The Fallen Angel may not even walk into NYC as champion as Matt Taven coming off the biggest win in his career against Adam Cole has a title shot tomorrow night in Dearborn. So this is extremely interesting to say the least.

Prediction: Cody
