Who will be the next set of "the guys" in ROH?

  1. As McGuinness said in a recent interview. ROH is in a transitional period, trying to get away from the swamp of booking that was caused by :cornette: as well as the baby deceases which happened when they signed with Sinclair. Apart from this they are also still recovering from losing Bryan and McGuinness, who for a while were "the guys" the guys that defined the company.

    So who would you say will fill that void. Who will be the guys that push the company forward for the last five or so years? That defines ROH. I think Michael Elgin, if he gets a bit more charismatic can fill that void. Steen would be an obvious choice but as I said in another thread, what is left for him once he drops the title? Cole would also be a choice but Triple H has his eyes on him apparently and wants to recruit him to the E. Richards and Edwards can be as technically superior as the want but without charisma of some kind they cannot push the company forward.

    ROH needs to find a couple of guys and cultivate them into the next Punk's, Aries' and Joe's. The next McGuinness and Bryan, The next Generico. But who?
     
  2. That's the $1000000 question. Honestly, I don't know too much about the Indy scene outside of ROH and a bit of PWG. So I don't know who's out there, but you have to imagine that they're is some good, young talent somewhere out there.
     
  3. Maybe this is a long shot but how does splitting the Briscoes up sound? Making them rivals and taking them to the main event. Would that be feasible or do you not see them as being able to carry the company?
     
  4. I think the Briscoes are one of the last classic tag teams that exist in North American wrestling. If you split them up then you might as well shut down the tag divisions in all the companies, lol. In all seriousness though, I don't see either or them as world title holders. TV champs maybe, but IMO not quote good enough to carry the company. It would be a killer mid card feud though.
     
  5. Yeah that's how I feel as well. As I said it was a long shot. I don't see either Jay or Mark as able to carry a company. Especially with their current gimmick.

    I guess Lethal could be a solution but does he really have the star power?
     
  6. I like Jay personally, but he's not a main eventer, even by ROH standards. Davey is great in the ring, but his promos are wooden, same goes for EE. I guess bring back Colt and give him the belt :lol1:
     
  7. Colt could work. I like Roderick Strong, he certainly has the ring part down and he has a more "champion look" than the scruffy badger Davey Richards. But talking has never been Roderick's strong side either.
     
  8. Never been a fan of Roddy, can't quite put my finger on it, but he just rubs me the wrong way. I guess I forgot about Elgin, if he decides to give up the dream and shave his head, you're bald buddy, accept it.
     
  9. The mullet needs to go as soon as possible. Elgin is the closest guess I think considering the breakout year he had in 2012.
     
  10. Guess he's a face now after turning on Truth and Roddy, he's probably next in line for steen. We'll see how it goes.
     
  11. Yeah. He's said that after he faces Roddy at 11th anniversary he is gunning for the title. Sad thing is he has already faced Steen once but I hope he can take Steen on the second attempt.
     
  12. Hi I'm Michael Elgin and I'm the next Steen.
     
  13. If ROH are willing to recruit in new guys to build and work with, I'd say try and sign Johnny Gargano.

    Hi. I'm Johnny Gargano and I kick Asians.

    He's had a hell off a break out year working as the face of Dragon Gate USA and Evolve as well as touring Japan with Dragon Gate. He's shown a hell of a lot of growth as an in ring wrestler, a talker and as a guy who can carry a company. Another plus thing is... He loves independent wrestling. He turned down a wwe contract in 2012 because he wanted to stay in DGUSA and help them grow. He could be a nice catch for ROH if they could get him. He recently worked a match with Steen as well up in Canada.
