A Place to talk about Ring Of Honor. The best wrestling promotion around.

One has to wonder: Is the WWE underwriting the Ring of Honor? If they did, it would easily be one of the smartest investments they made. Not only could they trigger storylines from it, but it could also feasibly be a place where they could run a PPV with the Ring of Honor, and use this organization to compete with TNA on their own level.

Yeah right. WWE Divas can't wrestle and OVW wrestlers can wrestle unlike WWE Divas

getting back to the topic.........

Quote by Ray Haywood @ 12:30:00 PM on 8/28/2005

I just thought I would send one more item about the ROH show in Buffalo last night.  After the show, there were a dozen or so fans waiting for wresters to come out of the back to their cars for pictures and autographs.  Colt Cabana came out looking real tired and worn out after his match.  A fan asked him for an autograph and a picture and he agreed.  Just as he was about to sign, Homicide jumped him from behind.  Gabe Sapolsky was right behind him, camera in hand, so obviously it is a setup for an angle.

I have to say it was one of the coolest things to see happen as a wrestling fan.  We were all caught completely off guard, and depending on who you believe, so was Colt.  Iím pretty sure he was working all of us but he kept mumbling how mad he was and that neither Cary Silkin nor Gabe told him that was going to happen.  Overall though, it was and awesome show, and that was a really cool way to end the night.

that is up there as one of the best wrestling stories of the year. just imagine if you was the startled fan. one minute your asking for an autograph. and the next minute your involved in an angle. obviously the fan would have been inadvertently involved. afterall they wouldnt want a massive fan to be involved incase he joined in an kicked the wrestlers ass.

i love ring of honor, where most companies copy what theyve seen before, ROH sets a new standard over here in the west where wrestling is its priority & has the code of honor which gives sportsmanship element to it.

ROH is the new ECW, its the underdog but everyone knows its the better product, smaller is definately better (in the wrestling world ofcourse!).

It would be nice Sentry but I think if that were the case then they would never have sat back whilst all ROH's top guys went to TNA, having said that they were underwriting ECW and a lot went to WCW so who knows?  Probably not though.

RING OF HONOR AND LOW KI SEVER ALL TIES
by Mike Johnson @ 7:01:00 AM on 2/3/2006

Ring of Honor and Low Ki, the initial face of the company and first ROH champion, both issued statements early this morning announcing that the two sides would not be working together in the future.

On his official website, Low-Ki.com, Ki wrote, "It is with great regret that I will not be participating in future Ring Of Honor events. Unfortunately, terms and conditions cannot be agreed upon and will end business altogether. My apologies for any inconvenience towards the fans of this company and who have supported me in throughout my tenure as a member of the company."

ROH booker Gabe Sapolsky soon followed up on the ROH message board, commenting, "There has been a disagreement in business arrangements between Low Ki and ROH management. Low Ki has canceled all his ROH bookings as stated in a headline at Low-Ki.com. We will announce new matches for the ones that Ki has already been advertised in next week. This will mark the end of Low Ki in ROH. We are sorry things turned out this way and apologize to the ROH fans for the lineup changes."

Ki, who has butted heads with Sapolsky in the past, was booked for several main events including 2/11 in Long Island, New York vs. Roderick Strong, ROH's ECW Arena debut on 3/11 (Ki & Christopher Daniels vs. Bryan Danielson & Samoa Joe) and a reprisal of the first ROH main event (a Three-Way with Bryan Danielson, Ki, and Christopher Daniels) on 4/22. Whatever plans were already in motion, ROH will have to start from scratch and rebook. Given the time this story is going to press, it's impossible to contact either party for comment, although I suspect given the wording of the statements that neither side will be interested in elaborating.

When Ring of Honor first debuted in February 2002, Ki was the top draw and star for the promotion. He was the first ROH champion as well. A disagreement between he and Sapolsky led to his departure from the promotion. He returned several months later at ROH's Second Anniversary show. Ki departed again after the Rob Feinstein NBC situation, publicly distancing himself from the company in statements made on his website. He returned to ROH in July 2004, turning heel on Samoa Joe, and had been working alongside Homicide as the two main forces in the Rottweilers. He had major feuds with Christopher Daniels, Samoa Joe, Jay Lethal, and Bryan Danielson (among others)during his tenure with the company. A December 2005 singles bout against NOAH's KENTA at Final Battle 2005 was massively praised and is just starting to make the rounds as it was released on VHS and DVD by ROH.

Low-Ki.com lists Ki as working regularly for Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan as well as competing on 4/8 in the tenth annual ECWA Super 8 tournament in Newark, Delaware. Ki won the 2001 edition of the tournament.

in the space of two days ROH have now lost abyss and low ki. losing low ki is the hardest of the two to take though. they have enough tna talent to not miss abyss. but low ki was the corner stone of ROH. like angle is for wwe. he will be missed but could end up in tna now. ring of honor seem to be losing it abit. instead of trying to get a tv deal ane becoming a viable number 3 promotion.

low ki has always been a bit dodgey cuz i met him at the 1pw show back in october & he was abit mean to me & short tempered. hes an ace wrestler but prob not a nice guy socially. also i thought he was having problems with tna also due to having some backstage heat with some of the guys?
