Bob Ryder is a fucking clown. Hey Bob, Austin Aries has hung out backstage at a few ROH shows as well. Fuck, Roode was backstage during the entire Canada stint of the new japan tour.
I'd be surprised if talent opted to go to TNA from ROH at this point. TNA's momentum is in the dumps and they are hounded by bad news upon bad news. ROH, not so much.
Geek. Sure, let's leave this company with money and momentum to go to a dead one that airs on the same channel and doesn't pay anyone.
It's funny that companies like EVOLVE and ROH have a better relationship with the E than TNA.
Those guys knew their place tbf, TNA always fancied itself as a challenge to the E.
TNA burned their bridge with ROH so many times. First with the Feinstein debacle, which was understandable. Then they started pulling talent from ROH just because they could to mess with them when they had a working agreement, so it is understandable that there are some sour grapes between the two companies.
It's also a bit interesting that despite TNA always seeing itself as WWE's competition, WWE seems to view ROH as it instead, at least since the move to national TV. Example being NXT running a PPV in the same city and on the same day as ROH is running their Field of Honor show.
I don't think running an NXT PPV is a sign of them being seen as competition.
They ran Raw tapings against TNA, that doesn't mean they really saw TNA as competition either.
It might not be the main factor, but I do believe it is at least part of it. ROH are bringing in Okada, Nakamura and the time splitters for this show. So the card is rather stacked. How stacked the NXT card will be can be a good inclinator to how they view ROH. On a positive note, ROH seems to take being noticed by WWE the right way, no potshots, just motivation to put on the best cards they can.
They should have better relations with other companies, instead of this immature bullcrap. It's like everyday I see nothing, but bad news from TNA.
LOL, fuck this clown.
Dixie apparently being inept at her actual job and this guy being a clown is a shame. Now I really want for GFW to take Impact.
