Friday 01/28/10 Ring of Honor Card so far:

Main Event #1- ROH World Title Match
Roderick Strong (C) vs. El Generico

Main Event #2- Non Title “Glory By Honor IX” Rematch
The Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) vs. Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin

Also scheduled to appear:
- ROH World TV Champion “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels
- Davey Richards

It's "the winner of Strong vs Briscoe" defending, but we know that's going to be Roddy.

A bit bizzaro in the main event since it looked like PWG booked towards a Claudio vs Generico PWG Title Match for this card, saving Claudio vs Joey for a later "home court" match in Reseda. Did ROH bigfoot PWG here?

I'll look into it this weekend. Tickets are on sale. It's a bigger place than Reseda, so it's not going to sell out anytime soon. General Admission to the PWG show gets folks into that day's "convention". I know James wants to do the ROH show on Friday. We were waiting to see what the PWG show was before going to both... though I'm all for going to both. I think I'll take Friday off so that I don't have to try to get there after work...

This seems like a gigantic waste of money. I know what some of these guys ask for for a night's work, and combined this is a very expensive match. I don't know how well PWG draws, but even if they could afford it, why do it? Pay those working actual macthes more or save for a rainy day. It sounds like a neat idea, but at the end of the day this match probably won't do a damn thing for the promotion business or creative wise.

I suspect PWG is getting most of those legends on the cheap, as they're already going to be out there for the convention.

Or, at least, that's the only way the match makes financial sense. I could be wrong... :)

What Rob said: those are guys at the convention. ROH and PWG throw those guys a bone. In addition, the crowd at these shows aren't pure ROH Fans or PWG Fans. There more Wrestling Convention Fans, some of which are PWG and/or ROH fans.

Yohe & Hoback: tickets bought for both nights. We'll figure out hooking up. PWG tickets will alledgely be mailed. ROH might be "pick them up at the door".

I saw that card, and I guess it's a spoiler for those December episodes of RoH I have on DVR and haven't seen yet (unless a face Daniels is trying to tag with three heels and Hilarity Ensues).

From what I've heard, that is exactly the plan.

Speaking of ROH, HDNet aren't renewing their weekly TV deal which expires in early April. Not a good sign for the future of the promotion.

Cheetah has the show notes, so I'll defer to her for the details...

...but it was, from a wrestling standpoint, one of the most fun shows I've been to in a long, long time.

From the bonus unadvertised opening match (Strong vs. Daniels) through two newer guys making a major impression (Cole vs. Bennett) to a truly rare "comedy match" that seamlessly flipped from comedy to wrestling in an instant (Cabana vs. Coleman) to a solid 8-man main event that didn't feel like it went 40 minutes... ROH delivered.

They're coming back to Richmond July 8... I've already blocked off the date on my calendar.

Yeah, read about that main event. I think the posters I saw came back and said that it was 35 rather than 40, but that's still giving the match plenty of time to do what it needs to do. With eight people involved, it allows for the work to be spread out. The under card, which on paper didn't sound good, had posters saying the same thing you did: much better than expected.

Wish I was there with you guys. :)
