That's on the pre-show? I saw the match announced, but didn't even think to read when it would air on the show. That's fucking horrible. And they wonder why they only draw 500 people to a show.

Jeff Cobb Vs Brody King is going to be the free preshow match for Death Before Dishonor.

Cause putting one of the best matches of the PPV as the free preshow match drew DOZENS of buyers to their last PPV.

ROH just stinks of desperation right now.

I wouldnt even call it desperation....more like complete ignorance and a lack of logic. This company just simply doesn't understand how to properly book a cohesive and comprehensive wrestling product right now. Not even fucking close. They did this same shit at Best in the World with putting Flip vs Rush as a pre show match. Talk about idiotic.

Now with Shane Taylor gone (thank god! Dude was not even a good worker and he got overtly pushed this year) what in the hell are they gonna do with the TV title? I read they want him to finish up and job out the belt, but who cares at this point. Just have Flip and Williams for the TV title at the ppv and be done with it all.

And then there's Taven. I figure ROH will re-sign him right before the ppv and then he goes over Rush just to confirm that this company is completely fucked with no future upside. Needless to say, I would always go to Vegas for the weekend when ROH would come around. This year that has changed drastically as I haven't bothered and I'm considering not even ordering the ppv at all.

I read a rumor (and not sure how legit this is) that Impact/Anthem might be interested in buying ROH out, and honestly I think at this point, it wouldn't be a terrible idea. Anthem actually now technically owns some old ROH content when they were on HDNet, so there is a connection there already. Would ROH still be run seperately by Anthem if this happens? That's the question I'm not sure of.

But IF they get bought out and Anthem decides to keep them around as an active touring entity, there NEEDS to be a creative change of the guard in ROH 110 percent.

If not, the impending Impact vs ROH feud would likely be a fun focus for Impact on the outset of the new run on AXS

I watched the last episode of ROH TV this morning. Good news is there was more than one match. Bad news is the other match was Rhett Titus Vs the lesser member of Coast 2 Coast.  ::)

Marty Scurll vs Bandido was p. dope tho.
