Still can’t believe people think that Okada match went twelve mins over itself, you never seen an Okada match and they length they go before? Guy might just want a challenge of his own, and he gets to keep working with his real life best mate in Aldis 

I've no doubt that they've seen an Okada match before, but it's widely known that the six-man main event had a lot of time cut from it as a consequence of other stuff running over. It's also been frequently reported Okada/Marty went considerably over their time. I understand there's a stigma surrounding Okada singles matches having to go long, but in this instance I can buy it. Okada, the ace of New Japan against a Junior, not in a New Japan setting? I don't see that going 26 minutes anywhere else, or being allocated that time.

Again, I'm not saying it's the likely option, but after seeing how the Elite chaps have dealt with things not going their way, it's not exactly an unbelievable story there could be a bit of friction which has contributed to this.

are ROH and NJPW trying to work together again? 

They haven’t stopped working together if that’s what you’re asking.

The story was quashed the next day, and since then it’s been mentioned several times in various ways that the biggest unexpected eat up of time was the wrestlers exiting post match as the ramp had no side space. So it was one way in and one way out. No way Okadas coming over for a 14 min match wherever it is, as the ace, he gets time for his match. To think he’d go 12 mins over and be that disrespectful to others is something I just can’t believe.

They even spoofed the rumours on one of the BTE's after All In, shooting a skit where Marty turns up 12 minutes late for something and they all act pissed off at him. Of course it's possible there's some truth too it but I sincerly doubt it would affect something like a contract negotiation all this time later.

Marty absolutely didn't end the match soon enough at All In, the big clue being the ref on the right side of the ring 5 minutes before the end, trying to get his attention and screaming for him to go home. As others have said I doubt that would be the cause of a fallout, especially if they joked about it afterwards.

I just hope Marty isn’t as stupid as his mates, thinking he needs to bury himself to prove he’s not John Cena or whatever. Chuck the World Title on yourself ASAP, like a real star would do.

 Can you get PPVs on honor club

I believe they're 50% off if you're an annually paid member, free if you're a VIP member.

Correct. If you but the VIP annual subscription, all PPVs are included.

ROH announced they’re bringing the Pure Championship back with a tournament starting in April to decide the winner.
 

I don’t know if this is a Marty influence or not, but at least they’re creating a bit of buzz again. I remember really enjoying it when it was first round but haven’t watched any pure matches in years now.

My favourite thing about the first Pure Title Tournament was how they packed the bracket with a load of no frills grappler types and then put the belt on AJ Styles back when he was full on flippy Euroboy AJ. In a final with CM Punk! I imagine that your Jon Walters and Chad Collyers of the world were fucking livid.

I hope they do something similar and put the strap on someone daft like Bandido. Or Beer City Bruiser.
