  2. The ME sounds like a lotta fun, as well as the tourney to determine the #1 contender for ROH TV title.
     
  3. Welp, Strong is out of the Las Vegas main event due to a clash with a commitment to a UK Date. So, Replacement will be announced soon by ROH.
     
  4. A Double would certainly be a mark out moment for the crowd.
     
  5. Replace Roddy with Aries, please.
     
  6. What purpose would that serve? Would be much better if they did something of worth with Aries rather than just have him replace Strong. Aries doesn't gain anything from this match other than being the sub for the number 1 contender. Which won't give him anything.

  7. SHOW RESULTS - 7/11 ROH in Hopkins, Minn.:

    Show Spoiler

    Attendance: roughly 700-800.

    Dark Match: The Romantic Outlaws beat Paco & Danny Aaron.

    The show opened with a CW rep who was booed out of the ring and drowned out by "We Want Wrestling" chants.

    (1) Mark Briscoe beat "Hotshot" Danny Duggan. Duggan, from the CWE promotion in Canada, wore Curt Hennig-like apparel. So, as you guessed, there were related chants.

    (2) War Machine (Hanson & Rowe) beat Silas Young & Beer City Bruiser. BCB does The Crusher gimmick with the beer keg and cigar. Surprisingly a lot of movement between all these big men and it turned out to be a good match.

    (3) A.C.H. beat Dalton Castle. The crowd was very much into Dalton's character and the high spots from A.C.H.

    (4) Michael Elgin beat Matt Taven. A lot of jeers throughout the match as well as a lot of fans demanding that it end. If you had never seen ROH you would never guess Elgin was a former ROH World champion because of the small response he got. He cut a promo after the match and won over the crowd by reminding them of how much they mean to him and hyping his involvement in the G1 Climax tournament.

    (5) Michael Bennett beat Cheeseburger, Will Ferrara, and Moose in a four-way match. All wrestlers received good responses from the audience, especially Moose. Bennett has come a long way since the first time I saw him in person. He's gained a ton of charisma while he's in the ring.

    (6) Adam Cole beat Bobby Fish. Really good match between these two. The fans cheered for both men equally throughout the match.

    (7) Jay Briscoe & ODB beat ROH World & TV champion Jay Lethal & Truth Martini in a mixed tag match. Definitely the most exciting match of the night. The crowd loves ODB. She's extremely over in her hometown.

    (8) Roderick Strong beat A.J. Styles and Kyle O'Reilly in a three-way match. This is why I hate triple threat matches. The crowd really wanted to see A.J. all night, but hardly got to see much of him in this match. A lot of the action was dedicated to O'Reilly and Strong, which still made for a great match, but when the biggest selling point of the show was to see A.J. wrestle and he barely got in much action, the crowd wasn't pleased by that.

    - Biggest Pops: (1) ODB & Jay Briscoe. (2) A.J. Styles. (3) Kyle O'Reilly.

    - Biggest Heat: (1) Jay Lethal. (2) Silas Young. (3) Michael Bennett.
