Ring of Honor in 2020 (and beyond?): 18 Years Old and Barely Stable!

Meltzer was asked about the investigation on WOR from last night. He said that Sinclair is notoriously glacial slow when it comes to investigations. They're hoping that it just goes away during the investigation so they don't have to look too much into it. With how vocal Brody was during the who thing, he's close to a number of the women that spoke out against various wrestlers, I wouldn't be surprised if he asked to not work with Marty again.

Good thing barely anyone pays attention to modern ROH so no one will really care when they pretend Marty Scurll and Brody King were never in a stable together.

Marty Scurll is currently on hiatus so he doesn't have any booking power at the moment. But it's ok guys because DELIRIOUS is back as head of creative!

Probably not.

I am mildly intrigued as they're going to be the first promotion, at least in North America, to operate in a bubble so that'll be interesting to see.

ROH being the most ethical North American promotion is one of many low key very weird developments of this year. I know it's a low bar to clear but I still never would have called ROH & Impact treating their workers better than anyone.

They announced some of the participants for the pure title tournament. Biggest takeaways are Tony Deppen and the apparent return of Matt Sydal.

That is a damn good group. Both Tony Deppen doing some guest shots (and he clarified on Twitter that he wasn't signing with ROH) and Matt Sydal returning were announced in February before the whole friggin world shut down IIRC.

SIGNATURE KAMALA ROH THREAD TRIPLE POST!

New episodes of ROH are returning September 12th.

ROH is teasing a Dalton Castle-David Arquette match. Does David Arquette want his wrestling career to be irrelevant as his acting career? ROH is probably last promotion I'd go (behind a return appearance to GCW) if I am Arquette.

Sha la la la, man.
They need him more than he needs them.

I would very much like David Arquette to be ROH champion and everyone being accepting of it. Final step to realizing this all should be fun.

I think Impact Wrestling would be best fit for Arquette weirdly. Their current administration loves goofy schtick and it's low enough on North American wrestling totem pole where I don't think anyone would be wound up by it being place where Arquette made his national return.

ROH is probably even worse than WWE at presenting comedy wrestling.

Final participants in the ROH Pure Title tournament starting next weekend are Fred Yehi (that's good!), Silas Young (not great but I expected him to be in this so whatever), and Delirious (big ooof). Pumped to see Yehi get a shot on national television and he is a great fit since he may be most underrated technical wrestler in the US.

That tournament should be fantastic. I'm really hoping for Deppen vs Gresham in the B Block final. If I can get Rust Taylor vs Fred Yehi in round 2, I'll be like a pig in shit. Yehi vs Rocky in the A Block Final is my dream for this, with a final of Yehi vs Gresham (we know Tony's not making it to the Finalsadly, unless they signed him).

ROH's return episode is free to watch on their website. Im about halfway through with it and honestly, with how small their crowds were pre-covid, you can't even tell the difference.

Just when I think there absolutely is no chance there is a dumber wrestler than TJP, Flip Gordon dumbs it up.

Fact that Flip was an Army Ranger makes it even scarier. THESE are the types of dudes we have on the frontline. Y-I-K-E-S
