Huge ROH news in regards... well... don't watch the video if you don't want to be spoilered on the upcoming TV shows or anything.

TNA house cleaning must be today. So far they have released:

 

Sam Shaw

Christian York

Joey Ryan

Taylor Hendrix (asked to be released)

Crimson (unconfirmed, bio no longer on TNA's site)

Madison Rayne (unconfirmed, contract has expired)

 

 

 

Crimson was just on TV a couple of weeks back after being gone for quite a while. No one missed him. I forgot he even existed and I watch TNA weekly. Same can be said for Gunner, but now he's a tag champ with Storm. Madison will probably be back. I think she was out poppin out a kid. Hate to see Joey Ryan was released. The bit where he was ref for the knockouts matches was hilarious. His gimmick was great and he seemed like he could wrestle pretty well; as well as most of the younger guys on the roster anyway.

TNA needs some new blood though. Taylor and Joey weren't good decisions to drop, IMO.

His shoulder is fine. He's just twisting his shoulder for the first bit of the video. Look again at the end of the video. It's looks normal.

JJSP or anyone else who follows PWG, do you have any recommendations for their DVD's?  Here's a link for what I have to choose from.

Get the All Star Weekend 9 night 1 and BOLA sets. So FUCKING GOOOD.

 

Standout matches incluce:

 

AR Fox & Samuray del Sol vs. Inner City Machine Guns (Ricochet & Rich Swann)- ASW Night 1

"The Callihan Death Machine" Sami Callihan vs. "The Ultra-violent Golden Boy" Drake Younger - ASW Night 1

 

I'd talk about BOLA but since it's a tournament I'm going to refrain from any spoilers. But there is some great, great stuff there with some spots I have NEVER before seen in my life. A couple of matches just took my breath away. Namely anything with Ricochet.

I doubt that many (or any) of you got it live, but if you have $15 bucks the AIW show from this past weekend is worth getting On Demand at Smart Mark Video.  The Josh Alexander vs. Michael Elgin match alone match is worth it, but there are some other good matches as well.  Michael Hutter (Derrick Bateman) vs. Tim Donst was cool just for the strange crowd reactions.  I think the stream is just a one camera version now, but it'll be a 3 camera edit soon.

Damn it, TNA. Not that they were smart enough to figure out what to do with him.

As for PWG recommendations, check Amazon or High Spots for the PWG anthologies. There are several volumes out. Beats the compilations because you get full shows.

Davey Richards and Eddie Edwards contracts expire on August 1st. There is some apparent interest in them from the WWE.

 

The Brian Kendrick is returning to ROH to challenge for their now vacant World Title. He is joining Michael Elgin as one of the only two as of yet named challengers.

The three-way ladder match at Threemendous was unreal if you miss the old Hardys/E&C stuff.

Steen Wolf is the PWG Generico/Steen ladder match with a surprise at the end, also has the Young Bucks and Future Shock in a pretty solid stiff war.

The DDT tag tournament set is FANTASTIC. If there's one thing PWG does really well, it's tag team wrestling.

For a good intro to the company, go with anything BOLA, DDT, or the anthology (Sells Out) sets. I think the first may be out of print, but you might get lucky on Amazon.

Thanks for the suggestions.  I get 40% off of those DVD's listed on ROH's site which is why I'm particularly interested in those.  I'll check into the others as well.

 

Impact-related...

 

Manic?  After we saw TJ Perkins and he was even named?  This is even assuming TJ is still the one under the mask.  I guess we'll find out later in the match tonight.

This was a really fun show and a great way to cap off an awesome day. The main event was incredible - one of the best TV matches all year.

Catching up on my NXT, since I haven't watched in a month or so.. Cesaro/"Zayn" matches are such a treat and remind me why I still watch this stuff.

SD thoughts -

 

Some good action here, but it largely felt like filler. And that's without the usual filler taking up a lot of time too. The Punk-Heyman stuff was tremendous.

It's funny that you mention Steen Wolf. I just posted this to my Tumblr. Possible spoilers regarding the surprise in Steen-Generico even though it happened in 2011.

I still don't quite understand the purpose of Tumblr but people seem to love their wrasslin GIFs.

Looking over the PWG DVDs on the ROH website, you can't go wrong with any of the four. With 40% off, I'd probably buy all of them, to be honest. If you get the BOLA 2012 sets, I recommend buying Mystery Vortex to complete the experience.

There have been Briscoes sightings at live WWE events. According to rumors, they haven't signed a contract but you never know how this will play out. I have a feeling they would get over huge in the WWE. Maybe even with the Wyatt family.

I'm not sure how the Briscoes would work in the E.  I think they will turn out like the Usos there.

Jay Briscoe can work the mic and I think the brothers would be a huge draw for the old WCW southern crowd.

He's been a regular in these threads for so long it feels  weird without him.  I'm sure he's ok in real life (I hope) maybe he  found some cooler people to  hang out with?  :-#

Rob Van Dam (as part of the Comics & Pro Wrestling panel) and Edge (as part of SyFy's Haven panel) have also been added to Comic-Con in San Diego.
