* Maybe I need to get in touch with Gabe Sapolsky for another exclusive interview for our homepage.
 
* ROH have always prided themselves on being more underground and indie. So would this not go against what they stand for?
 
* I reckon it would be a great way to get noticed more on back of their pay per views.
 
* They aren't ever going to be at WWE level, but they could work at closing the gap on TNA with them being an alternative.

I've never seen ROH but they'd be better off keeping their mystique.  Look at what getting a TV deal did for ECW.  This is the ECW that still had Heyman at the fold and not owned by McMahon yet. They had to water down everything that made them successful and people were bitching constantly about it.

RoH with a TV deal? This could be something. I'm not sure what exactly though.
They have done very well for themselves without the national exposure but wouldn't it be great to be able to see these guys on a regular basis?
Would it ruin their rep?
So many questions but I'm hoping this thing really happens.

Quote Source: PWInsider.com

-- The first episode of Ring of Honor's new television series on cable network "HD Net" will debut on Saturday night, March 21st at 8PM eastern (with an 11 PM replay). The first six episodes will be taped on at the former ECW Arena in Philadelphia on 2/28 and 3/1.

* So come this weekend we will know the results from the first six weeks of tapings already.

* I'd prefer them to tape them a bit nearer the time that they are going to air for us.

* After this weekend they will have taped episodes that won't air for like two months.

* Who are the commentators for ROH and what are they like? I won't be able to watch it if they are annoying.

I agree with Maria on this one, ROH at their best are a superb promotion, and when i attended a live show in New York a couple of years ago, it was a great night of action.  I hope things work out for them and we get to see top wrestling from the promotion for years to come.
Lifes what you make it.

I choose to out think people, who are too dumb and pick on the rich.

* As anyone watched a television taping of it yet? I've not seen them being streamed anywhere.

* Be nice to watch Ric Flair in Ring Of Honor, so I hope I find a stream of this scheduled appearance.

* Three rather strong matches for the hour long show. Be interesting to see how the others fit in with not wrestling.

Thats the one thing I'm worried about for ROH, how much will they have to water down there product by? I dont see ROH being a threat to TNA, I can see them hit ratings between 0.4 and 0.9 but nothing over that.

* Tried to get him here once as I thought he would be a great asset to a section like this.
 
* The bastard didn't even show the class to send me a reply so therefore he's a knobhead.
 
* It takes a minute at most to say "thank you for your message but i'm not interested" etc.
