Hey guys does ROH have anything entertaining like the WWE? The promo with Generico and the other guy was pretty cool but I also like to have fun too. I don't know if they're worth any money or if I should just skip on it and watch something else. Do they have anyone awesome like Orton or entertaining The Miz?


No not really... ROH is mostly a bunch of skinny pasty nerds like Generico giving each other lariats and head drops.

I was going to type that, but in quick reply there is not a spoilers tag....so I just left it like that.

This has been a funny way to end 2010 though when you think about it. In WWE land..

Miz as champ
Kane...still champ
Wade Barrett...unknown to begin the year...almost champ
Cena doesn't have the title
Orton not officially even in a storyline
Del Rio literally being the most entertaining character on SD
SD being depleted
MVP getting so frustrated at mid-card hell that he left
Shelton getting cut (he was horrible on the mic though :()
Drew McIntrye....period.
Shaemus's character and how he's not being allowed to midcard/job

Nexus' rise...and fall - thanks to injuries and Cena being put with 'em

Bryan Danie...Daniel Bryan's firing which still seemed like a work since he just happened to come back when? AT SUMMER SLAM!!!

.....Husky Harris and McGuillicutty or whatever as actual wrestling names
Cody Rhodes saving his career and becoming interesting with his gimmick

Shawn Michaels retiring....and not even stepping on WWE soil since

HHH literally not being on TV for a good part of the year (yay!)

Jericho having the best year character wise known to man....and exposing all the imitators on how far they have from being able to emulate him (Swagger and Miz)


Oh yea, Swagger winning the belt....and being the first champ to basically lose every match possible

I'm just sayin'...this has been crazy!

Ring Of Honor's iPPV is tonight

http://www.gofightli...Battle_2010/807

ROH World Title Match
Roderick Strong defends vs. Davey Richards


‘The Hunt” vs. “The Truth”…at its bare bones that is what this match is, but with closer inspection, it is about so much more than that. This is about Roderick Strong proving he is the standard-bearer for ROH as we head into 2011, it’s about Davey Richards achieving the destiny that has evaded him thus far, and it’s about two former allies fighting tooth-and-nail over the most important title in professional wrestling. Not too long ago, Richards was contemplating walking away from wrestling after “Final Battle” and pursing other interests. Meanwhile, Roderick was fighting his way towards the ROH World Title, a goal he finally met at “Glory by Honor IX”, the same event where Richards announced his intentions to continue wrestling as well as told the world he would receive a title opportunity at “Final Battle”. Since September, Richards has spent a great deal of time in New Japan Pro Wrestling training for this contest while Strong has being working to establish his position as ROH World Champion. Now these two former allies will clash in NYC, they will show no remorse as they battle for the ROH World Title, they will pull out all stops as each man battles to fulfill their destiny.



Unsanctioned Match- Fight Without Honor
Kevin Steen vs. El Generico
*If Generico loses he will unmask
**If Steen loses he will quit Ring of Honor


At “Final Battle 2009”, the friendship between these two men came to an abrupt and shocking end. Kevin Steen laid waste to El Generico following their battle with The Young Bucks, and has proceeded to do the same at every available opportunity. Whether it be with Steve Corino at his side, while Colt Cabana stood by Generico’s, or standing on his own, Steen has made it his purpose in life to destroy El Generico completely. They have seen bloody street fights and deathmatches, Steen has found himself handcuffed and restrained in a straightjacket, Generico has been spat upon and humiliated, and ultimately, neither man is the same person they were one year ago. Steen has slowly becoming unhinged, attacking shadows and pursuing any fan that would have the audacity to wear a Generico mask. What at first seemed like a violent separation from his partner has turned into a violent separation from reality for Kevin Steen. He’s talking to masks as if they’re people, self-destructing as he attempts to destroy Generico, and hoping it will be better after he rids the world of Generico. For Generico, this journey started as one of growth and finding inner strength, but in recent months, Generico has found a darker edge that goes deeper than a simple mask change. As a matter of fact, Generico is growing to resemble Kevin Steen in personality if not actions. He too has become uncontrollable and unpredictable, but all in the hope that after “Final Battle” the world will right itself and Generico can step back into the light. But really, will all they have gone through and the changes they have undergone, will either man be able “go back to the way it was” after Saturday night?



Six Man Tag Team Grudge Match
Jay, Mark, and Mike “Papa” Briscoe vs. The Kings of Wrestling and Shane Hagadorn


For a year The Briscoes and The Kings of Wrestling have battled over the ROH World Tag Team Titles. At “Final Battle 2009” after The Briscoes reclaimed the ROH World Tag Team Titles, the reunited KoW heralded their return by assaulting the new champions. Since that time the belts have changed hands (“The Big Bang”), the two teams had a bloody battle in Canada (“Death Before Dishonor VIII”), and the extended members of each family have gotten involved. Sara Del Rey suffered the wrath of the Briscoes at “Supercard of Honor V”, Mike Briscoe felt the repercussions on HDNet, and Shane Hagadorn has stuck his nose in whenever necessary. Now, with the Briscoes’ having exhausted their last title shot at the KoW, ROH officials have put The Kings & Hagadorn in a position to answer for all their crimes when they face off with the 6-time Tag Champions and the patriarch of their family. Both teams have found great success in NYC in the past, but it may come down to the 3rd man on each team. Mike Briscoe has never competed in the ring, and it has been over two years since Hagadorn has seen active ROH competition. The KoW and The Briscoes have told ROH officials that they have their respective partners in hardcore training, so which family will prove the stronger?



ROH Legends Collide
ROH World TV Champion “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels vs. “The Notorious 187″ Homicide


Both Daniels and Homicide have established themselves as legends here in Ring of Honor, both have been champions in the past (Homicide with the World Title, Daniels with the Tag), and “The Fallen Angel” captured his first singles title less than a week ago. Now they will meet for the first time in years inside an ROH ring and battle it out. Each man is looking to earn themselves a shot at the ROH World Title and the winner of the Strong/Richards battle. Daniels may have come up short in his first bid but in his heart he feels one more stab is all he needs. Homicide, on the other hand, has gone undefeated since returning to ROH at “Glory By Honor IX” and will stop at nothing to get his hands back on the “Ring of Homicide” World Title. The Angel vs. The Rottweiler right in the heart of Homicide’s hometown; it’s not a question who the ROH faithful will be behind Saturday night. Can Daniels overcome the hometown advantage? Or will Homicide get one step closer to “his” title?

Women of Honor- Tag Team Challenge Match
Daizee Haze and Awesome Kong vs. Sara Del Rey and Serena Deeb


For months both Haze and Del Rey have been clamoring for greater competition in Ring of Honor. They have battled one another a hundred times over and have essentially begged ROH officials to bring in some other challenges. The majority of women officials have found have been sub par in the eyes of Haze & Del Rey so a challenge was issued, Daizee find a partner, Sara find a partner, and battle it out at “Final Battle” to see just who the best woman in wrestling today is. Kong offered her partnership to Haze while Del Rey went out and found the only other woman she thought capable of standing beside her in the ring: Serena Deeb. Which pair will prove to be the dominant females?



Scientific Showdown
Colt Cabana vs. TJ Perkins


After months of blood and brutality, Colt Cabana removed himself from the Steen/Generico/Corino situation after the “I Quit” match at “Richards vs. Daniels”. Then, after being screwed out of wins two nights in a row, Colt pleaded with ROH officials to find him competition that was there for wrestling’s sake. The former Tag Team Champion was tired of the violence & pain and simply wanted to get into the ring and wrestle. Enter: TJ Perkins; a much heralded wrestler from the west coast who made his name with pure scientific wrestling. Perkins has battled in ROH on occasion throughout the years, but this is by far the biggest stage he has competed on. Both men are looking to showcase pure wrestling at its finest and live on iPPV is the perfect place to do it!

Tag Team Challenge Rematch
The All Night Express vs. Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole


Originally scheduled to take place in Mississauga, ON, this rematch from “Richards vs. Daniels” was postponed due to last minute line-up changes. In the original contest, Rhett Titus & Kenny King nearly slipped up due to their overconfidence but managed to recover and pickup the victory. And as if they were cocky already, earning a future shot at the ROH World Tag Titles has only served to elevate their egos to a whole new level. O’Reilly and Cole, while the newest faces in ROH’s tag team scene, have certainly made an impact in their bouts against The ANX, Steen & Corino, and The Bravados. As with Perkins, “Final Battle 2010” is the biggest platform they have ever had to showcase their skills but it’s against two of the toughest opponents they could face. The ANX are hungry for the belts, Kyle & Cole are hungry to prove themselves, which teams hunger will win out?

Special Challenge Match
Eddie Edwards vs. Sonjay Dutt


Originally scheduled as Eddie Edwards vs. Kenny Omega, Kenny was forced to pull off the weekend events due to a serious ankle injury that is making it difficult for him to even put any weight on it. ROH officials scrambled to find a replacement for Omega, but a replacement came to them instead, a man who hasn’t been seen in Ring of Honor for many months now: Sonjay Dutt. Dutt, who hasn’t competed in ROH since “Civil Warfare”, told ROH officials that he wanted to prove himself once again, to show the world live on iPPV that this is where he belongs and the best way to do that is compete against one of the best wrestlers in the company. Will Dutt step up to the plate and earn his way back into ROH? Or will the former TV Champion & 2010 Survival of the Fittest winner dominate in NYC?

Is the show taped? Strikes me as odd that ROH has a live PPV on a Thursday night (but, I suspect, you'll have more people at home than on a Friday or Saturday, so perhaps they're thinking that).

The Wrestling Observer is reporting that WWE Smackdown announcer Todd Grisham has been removed from the Smackdown announce team and has been replaced by Josh Matthews. Furthermore, it was suggested that Grisham should try and apply for a full-time position with the Fox Soccer Channel, which is what he does part-time. Grisham had not been on Vince McMahon's good side in the last few months, which is why Michael Cole was added to the Smackdown team.

ROH's TV show is easy enough to find on PWT and XWT.

Impact thoughts -

Impact tonight was fairly boring overall. Kinda bad in some ways, like the laughable brawl between AJ and Williams in a trailer/heel Knockouts dressing room. The brawl looked bad, and the area they fought in looked hilarious, with a tiny TV in the corner. AJ's "SHUT UP, HOOKER!" crack was amusing. Match-wise, Robbie E.-Lethal was hurt by outside stuff with Christy and Cookie, while RVD-Rob Terry was possibly Terry's best match ever, but that isn't saying much. The show-long deal with Pope seemingly being a corrupt preacher, or something, was... a storyline.

EY finding the old TNA World title in the trash (unseen, by the way) sure did make the championship itself seem like a bigger joke. There's a reason WCW only did this angle with the TV belt - it was basically a meaningless title, so turning it into a Saturday Night-only deal was fine. This is the WORLD HEAVYWEIGHT TITLE, and they're treating it like it's a funny old prop - like when they pulled out an old X Cup in the Kevin Nash X Division Invitational Battle Royal at BFG '06. Plus, the gear of a comedy act in EY looking very similar to Jeff Jarrett's irked me. Also, if the end goal of this Immortal story is to bring order back, have Dixie in charge and make things how they were, then using the title that she'd almost certainly bring back as a symbol of the company being back in her hands as nothing more than second-match comedy prop really kills whatever importance it's going to have down the line.

Jarrett's segment, like last week's, was great. That was easily the best part of the show, and they're doing a good job of building up Angle-Jarrett for the PPV. JJ stealing Angle's intro RULED. The main event saw Matt Morgan and Mr. Anderson get outsmarted by ROB TERRY. Now, Anderson's got the concussion as an excuse, while Morgan is just a dipshit. Also, they did the HBK-Owen enziguri bit to START the match. WWE milked a months-long angle with it, and TNA, while doing a concussion angle, just treats it as another spot. Oh well. It's not like the faces wouldn't have looked like fools at some other point in the storyline.

Sorry about the late response to this one. 7 hours at work, straight to an oil change, then to the parents, then on a date has kept me away for 14 hours.

While I like the idea ADR winning the belt I have a hard time seeing Vince allowing it... Well I'm gonna go ahead and back pedal. I don't see it happening if Miz retains. Vince allowing Miz and ADR to be his two "top dogs" just will not happen. Miz will retain, again for one reason... Morrison will beat Sheamus and we will get Miz v. Morrison for the title at the Rumble.

That is just how I see things going down.

the only thing i liked about tonight's impact was Jay Lethal and Christy Hemme(for obvious reasons) and EY/OJ. The rest of the show was meh. The JJ MMA thing is funny to watch though. i love the mock celebration at the end.

Maybe she wasn't a plant:

What was it like meeting and doing a RAW Slammy segment with little 9-year-old Cayley? Aka “Miz Girl.” Aka “Scowly.”
The Miz: [laughs] Yes yes. The angry Miz girl! Aw, man that was arguably one of my favorite moments. That little girl literally made my WWE Championship win. When I got backstage, the only thing anyone could talk about was that little girl’s scowling face, being so mad at me. And as soon as I saw it I thought “that’s the exact fan reaction I wanted out of the crowd.” And sometimes you don’t get that. Sometimes fans see the camera and go “Oh, hey. I’m on camera.” She didn’t see it. You could see the passion that she had for Randy Orton and how mad she was that he lost. It made my day. I guess the dad actually called, because the next week, in my address, I talked about the fan reaction being one of shock and anger and I showed her picture again. So her dad called up and said that she was more than willing to come back if we ever needed her. So, of course, being WWE like we are, we totally leapt at he opportunity and took the reins.

And just going out there and getting on one knee…I mean, how do you talk to a little girl and then take something from a kid? You have to be so nice to them so that they trust you, and then you take it from them. And then they get really really mad. It was so great. And backstage, she was the shyest little girl. It was so cute to see her back there and everyone told me that when Randy came up to her she gave him a big hug and she was so shy and nervous that she couldn’t talk. And then to watch her go out there and start thanking her dad and her mom and her family. And then me, being the big bully that I am, taking the Slammy away from her. [laughs]

Something about that story just reeks "kayfabe"

Gotta give it to WWE, they seem to be at least garnering *some* interest from me. I watch Raw for the first time in ages, and now I'm actually interested in what happens at TLC. I *might* even watch SD! tonight.

One, I honestly don't believe that WWE would've planned something that elaborate.

Two, seeing her on the Slammy show demonstrated that she's not great at acting. Seriously, she struggled to even get the face right a second time.




Anyway, so apparently Michaels' big announcement video was really just a statement saying he's basically committed to WWE long-term and would never set foot in anyone else's ring. Which, really, is like the least surprising revelation ever. He's open to being an on-air character at some point, but he seems sincere about not wrestling again. Personally, I hope that's true, just so he can be the one guy that actually adheres to a retirement stipulation. Ha.

- Shame about Omega missing the big ROH show. But, Dutt is an excellent replacement.

- Cole, Matthews, and Striker has become one of my favorite commentary teams.

- If we did pro wrestling 'awards', I would say:

Wrestler of the Year: Prince Devitt

Breakout Star of the Year: The Miz, Prince Devitt

Match of the Year: Undertaker-Michaels 2, Apollo 55 (Devitt-Taguchi) vs. Golden Lovers (Ibushi-Omega), Liger-Marufuji, Nakamura-Goto 1, Devitt-Marufuji 2

Resurrection of the Year: Kane, Cody Rhodes, Satoshi Kojima, Batista, Michael Cole

Tag Team of the Year: Apollo 55, Golden Lovers, Kings of Wrestling (Hero-Castagnoli)

Who to Watch in 2011: Kenny Omega, RockNES Monsters (Yuma-Goodtime), Alberto Del Rio, Dragon Gate USA

Moment of the Year: JR smacking Cole in the head with his hat, Miz winning the WWE championship, Cole-Matthews-Striker constantly shitting on NXT

Embarrassment of the Year: TNA Wrestling

Story of the Year: Undertaker's streak versus Michaels' career, Steen's heel turn on Generico, The Nexus

Feud of the Year: El Generico vs. Kevin Steen, Shawn Michaels vs. The Undertaker

Finish of the Year: The exchange between Undertaker and Michaels leading to Undertaker hitting the big match version of his Tombstone piledriver, Devitt taking the IWGP Junior Heavyweight strap from Marufuji after hitting a top-rope Bloody Sunday; Nakamura landing one, final Boma Ye to defend the IWGP Heavyweight title against Goto

If Alberto Del Rio wins the World Heavyweight championship, add him to Breakout Star of the Year. Kevin Steen versus El Generico, Mask versus Career, may wind up being added to Match of the Year.

If you want something bad enough just pay for it.. that applies to games too. Just because you CAN share the game doesn't mean you should.
