I did not spot any others and if you have please identify them. What are your overall thoughts on the effect that ROH has had on the overall landscape of professional wrestling/sports entertainment? Has it changed the way any company do things or do you think we would be where we are today inspite of ROH

Is this thread serious? I'd heard of Jerry Lynn, AJ Styles, Christopher Daniels, Jimmy Yang, Doug Williams, Joey Matthews, Low Ki, Samoa Joe, Brian Kendrick, Daffney, Paul London and Bryan Danielson before Ring of Honor even existed. Then your putting Abyss, Awesome Kong, Chris Hero, Mickie James, Daivari, Hernandez and Jamie Noble in with that group of "originals"? Its an indy fed that books wrestlers. There was always indy darlings and talented wrestlers around before Ring of Honor. If it wasnt Ring of Honor booking them, someone else would be.

Ive read that Kings of Wrestling have indeed signed. Apparently they will be on our screens by october the latest. Theyve got to finish off their commitments with ROH and then they are going to Bypass developmental straight on to the main roster. thats the latest ive read

hopefully its the truth

That's glorious stuff right there. His effort to make MAtthews look good was he was part of a tag team where the other guy went on to stardom. He's not even the Jannety, that's an insult to Marty Jannety
