How many times do we fans have to keep saying the same things where wrestling deaths are talked about ? It's getting to the point now that their is a fine line between me caring about a wrestling death, and not caring about one. Guys in any part of the wrestling business need to look after themselves better. Back in the 80s and even 90s deaths were not as common. But now seven years into a new century, guys should be thinking to themselves "I don't want to die young like so many before me". The current people in the business are not learning from the mistakes of the people before them.

TNA actually informed Ring of Honor late last year that they would no longer allow Samoa Joe to be a ROH regular. It is now believed Christopher Daniels, Austin Aries, and Homicide won't be ROH regulars by year's end.
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I guess TNA want to do serious business for these three guy's thus the reason they want them to appear less on ROH by the end of the year.
 
Though, it is also good for the future of Ring Of Honor, becuase we will see more new guy's getting chances to shine and to prove themselves.

This is something TNA should have done ages ago. Now the ROH fans who don't watch TNA will tune in so they can continue to see their favourite wrestlers. Whilst TNA become a much more serious company by making their wrestlers much more exclusive. That makes them look serious at being something in the business. TNA need to stop their wrestlers doing anything other than TNA work. And ROH know in advance that they need to make new stars this year. The TNA guys will do some serious jobbing before they leave.

Here is a quick update for TONIGHT's event at the Manhattan Center, just a block from Madison Square Garden in the heart of Manhattan.

We are sorry to report that Davey Richards will not be able to wrestle on tonight's event due to an injury he suffered in training. We assure you that there will be a top quality replacement for Richards in the Four Way Fray.

Everyone at ROH is so proud to kick off the Fifth Year Festival at the Manhattan Center. The New York City fans have meant so much to ROH since the very first show. The NYC fans who used to take the bus trips and drive to the first Philly shows spread the word and created the buzz that made ROH grow.

New York City saw ROH's historic and memorable First Anniversary Show at the legendary Elk's Lodge in Queens, NY. Manhattan has become the place to be to witness ROH live. The first Manhattan event, "Manhattan Mayhem" in May of 2005, set a new standard for excellence. Since that time Manhattan has hosted one must see show after another including "Joe vs. Kobashi" and "Glory By Honor V: Night 2" (Wrestling Observer show of the year for 2006). The thing that made these shows so special was the atmosphere created by the rabid NYC fans.

We are honored to kick off the 5th birthday party in NYC. You better believe that the party will be hot all night at the Manhattan Center. Tickets will be available at the door tonight. Here is a quick look at all the info you need to know:

The card itself sounds off the charts, I really believe if ROH had a TV deal, I'd assure u that ROH would do much better than WSX and within a few weeks would do better than TNA, ROH has the talent and has the skills to very well be a threat to WWE if they were on television.

The owner of ROH does not have the balls to step up though and is happy being small time. A problem i have with ROH is how every card seems to have a title match on it. How about people earn the right to face the champion ? Less is more in my opinion. The card of action doesn't look too bad to me. Shame they cannot sell it out though. This year is make or break for them. They need exclusive stars of their own which are capable of selling out ROH events (something that doesn't always happen now with TNA guys on the card).

I would love to go but Webby never seems up for it. Plus the rest of the people i know like the bright lights of WWE instead. Shame because watching the last ever Samoa Joe match in ROH would be a honour (pun not intended). It would have been a chance to meet some of ya on the sunday show and have a few drinks. Check out the thread about the Liverpool shows to see if anyone is going.

Is it just me or as ROH taken backwards steps as well. I can just about take their small venues, bad lighting, bad sound, no television deal and no PPVs rules. That is even though I think they should be more out there. What I don't like is the real bad booking. Having Homicide as the champion for only a handful of defences after spending half a year going after the belt was lame. I thought at start it was so they had their own champion not linked to TNA. But now they have brought back a lot of TNA guys to the roster (to probably replaced injured guys like Danielson and Jacobs) so it doesn't make sense.

I was real mad that Homicide got that short of reighn! I believe he should of got a hell of longer reighn then that. I really do hope he gets another reighn or Cabana gets the title before he leaves
