    The 14th Anniversary show is looking very good, and I'll likely order it, based on the card thus far:

    *Lethal vs. Cole vs. O'Reilly for the ROH World Title

    *The Briscoes vs. Tanahashi & Elgin

    *Okada vs. Moose

    I also solved the problem of watching ROH TV now, because I recently bought all of the current-gen video game consoles, and ROH TV does stream through the Xbox One browser. Not perfect quality, but still good enough to watch. I'll try it on the PS4 browser soon to see if the quality is any better on there.

    According to Meltz...

    Kenny Omega will be a semi-regular, on a similar schedule as Styles had.

    Jay Lethal, Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly all signed one-year deals with a significant raise from their prior deals. In the case of Fish & O’Reilly, when you combine ROH with their New Japan money, it would have been well above what they could have gotten from anyone else.

    This is good for all involved. Omega taking over for Styles is a as good as a replacement as you could get.

    I bought the ROH PPV tonight, it was an okay show, but I was disappointed because I had high expectations going in

    The set and everything looked phenomenal, best ROH has ever looked IMO, only problem was the hard cam wasn't high enough so when fans were standing or holding signs they were blocking the hard cam, you put all that money into a fancy set make sure I can see everything ROH

    I just don't get ROH's mentality sometimes, like this Jay Lethal thing, I don't get it at all, he's a good wrestler and a good talker, but there literally isn't one match I'm clamoring to see him in, and yet they roll right along with him as champ, and with no challenger in sight, the only 2 ROH guys who won singles matches tonight were BJ and Shelley, and Shelley's going into a tag program, so there is literally no challenger for Jay Lethal at the moment

    The other two negatives were the tag title match which nobody gave a shit about and the BJ/Adam Page match which was really dull, had a bad finish and a nonsensical post match angle, on a show where they ran heavy this match really needed to be left off the show and done on TV instead, just bad

    Castle looked great against Goto, the Guns are back together and the Elite are the greatest thing in wrestling, and Kenny Omega may have killed Matt Sydal on a crazy bump

    So some good some bad, a lot in the middle

    I still can't believe they went with two three ways for the two titles.

    Did you not get the memo? This PPV was called ROH Triple Threat

    Also very interested in the MCMG getting back together.

    I was hoping we'd get a singles match out of them first, but I think they should have fine matches with The Addiction.

    mostly taken from the Meltz
    Colt Cabana returned Wrestlemania weekend and will be staying.

    Chris Hero will be returning full time too.

    Jay White will be in later in the year on a excursion.

    Chris Hero is really good, like really fucking good, but I never get excited about him being announced for something or signing somewhere. It's just kinda of like "oh Chris Hero is on a big indy show, of course he is. this makes sense". That said i hope he isn't done in Evolve since I watch way more of that than ROH at this point.

    Also Jay White is pretty good, guys.

    Ok what I had read earlier was wrong, Meltzer just said on twitter, nothing definite but it's been talked about regarding Hero.

    I think ROH/Sinclair probably trying to add some depth to the roster with Sinclair probably adding them to new sports channel when they rebrand the Tennis Channel.

    Hero is fucking great, so this would be pretty big for ROH. Hopefully they give him the kind of contract that allows him to work for Gabe but who knows.

    Biggest plus of Hero would be some fresh NJPW matchups

    Sounds like the visa issues for Kenny and Shibata didn't get done in time for Global Wars and WOTW, but maybe there's still hope, because I'm going to Chicago and Dearborn

    Just saw ROH tweeted that Omega will be in Toronto but not in the other cities.

    Kamaitachi makes his ROH debut against ACH this weekend

    Heard he was moving to the Northeast to pursue work in America so hopefully he becomes a regular

    5/9 Dearborn show looks really fun

    Guns/Briscoes
    reDRagon v Naito/Lethal
    Kushida v Castle!!!!
    Roddy v Liger

    my biggest concern is there are 8 matches announced and the Bucks and GoD's are not booked yet so I fear they're going to do a schmozz finish on one of the tags and turn it into an 8 man, and will be super pissed if it's during the Guns/Briscoes

    Putting it into my own words, a bunch of rumors online goings around of some unhappiness in the ROH locker room, some due to creative frustrations.

    Matt Sydal is close to signing a deal with New Japan. Moose's deal is up in the next month or 2 and has several offers that going be on his table, his manager Stokely Hathway is said to be finishing up after these upcoming shows. Roderick Strong only has a few months left on his deal. Adam Cole is said to be gone when his contract is up, which is at least several months away.  A number of other talents may not re-sign in the next year.

    Show was super fun, it seems like people on the net are pissed at the finish, I have no problem with it, at least it was something, the other option was Lethal just winning and moving into a program with Dijak

    Felt super bad for Fish, I really liked the match with him and Ishii but the crowd did not give a fuck

    Top notch show tonight, probably a bit better than Global Wars IMO, Ishii/Moose and Kushida/Castle were both better than anything on GW IMO and the main event was absolute insanity like you would expect from the BC

    Adam Page joined Bullet Club and the addiction won the tag titles so that was odd, booking was weird but the show was just so much fucking fun live

    Meltz said Adam Cole in Bullet Club was asked for by New Japan and He'll be starting in Japan around August.

    I think Addiction won the titles so the Machine Guns can win the titles off them after a few more months of feuding.

    Page joining Bullet Club was smart decision.. He wasn't going to move up the ranks as a young face at the moment with guys like Castle, ACH and Lio there, As a Bullet Club member, he can be contending for the TV title, can be the pin eater in tag matches and if Cole does leave when his contract up, Cole can always put over Page on the way out.

    I do agree on Page that he was kind of flopping as a face so this will get him on shows and in big storylines so it's a good spot for him

    the internet hot take seems to be that the Bullet Club angle is lame and the group is played out, but both nights in front of sold out houses they were the most over act on the shows, and ended both nights with the Bucks and Cole at the gimmick table selling shit loads of merch, so for the moment the BC is still hot with live crowds, but the bigger problem will be ROH just doesn't have anyone to put against them, every babyface will be less over and the BC will get cheered in every match they have unless something changes
