Most other boards seem to have them, plus it'll save someone having to make a new thread for results of the shows and we can post all ROH related news, views and reviews here. So let me kick it off:


ROH Newswire 12th September:


September 12th: We have major news for this Saturday's PPV taping in Chicago. The biggest grudge World Title Match in ROH history has been signed. ROH World Champion Takeshi Morishima will put the belt on the line against former World Champion Bryan Danielson THIS SATURDAY in Chicago. You can now save almost 30% on tickets until tomorrow morning at ROHwrestling.com. As documented in the latest ROH Video Wire, Bryan Danielson suffered a serious eye injury against Morishima during their 8/25 bout in Manhattan and needed emergency surgery. Danielson's doctor told him yesterday that he is recovering quickly and that he will probably be able to wrestle this weekend. Danielson will have one more check up tomorrow just to make sure. However, Danielson said he is feeling great and he wants Morishima back in the ring. Danielson said cannot wait to get Morishima in the ring. Danielson says that Morishima took his vision from him so he will get revenge by ending Morishima's over six month ROH World Title reign. Danielson proved his toughness last year when he wrestled for months with a severely injured shoulder. ROH officials are 100% confident that Danielson is ready to go for this Saturday's epic rematch. We will have more on this bout and another update on Danielson after his latest visit to the doctor in tomorrow's ROHwrestling.com Newswire. It simply doesn't get any bigger than this.

Is this the PPV Porject 161 is supposed to be revealing itself?


I think so at least, all the hints are suggesting they will like "The second city" and the Chicago skyline. The 161 being the 161th ROH show which will be the PPV taping plus they want the Briscoes who are blowing off their awesome feud with Steen and Generico. Also on their latest blog it goes:


No more clues. Tune in back here this Thursday night for an unveiling of sorts; a matinee, if you will. Project 161 will reveal exactly who we are, and what we’re here for. Until next time…fight the good fight

I've been really into this angle since it started. it's been really well, '*** I;ve got NO idea who it is.


I've heard everything from Murder City Machine Gun to Second City Saints (Colt and Steel) to Jimmay Rave to BJ Whitmer. I really can't wait to see who it is.


Even if it's someone stupid, we already know we'll get a match and feud with the Briscoes in it.

Any idea's at all who it might be?


Me personally I though it was Adam Pearce, BJ Whitmer and Jimmy Rave. Because all 3 got squash by Shima on a PPV taping and where PO'ed with society and all that.


Now I think it'll be Pearce fronting it as the mouth piece which will be freaking awesome as he is the best talker in the business and more promo's like the one of the first PPV and I'd be happy. BJ Whitmer purely because he has nothing else to do, turned hell and has a new hair cut dammit! Tyler Black and Jimmy Jacobs fronting the tag team of the group, their both emo and Black has reported been wearing more and more weird messages on his tights, plus DIFH in ROH will rule.

No idea really. The origional favs were Rave and Whitmer, but Rave seems to have genuinly left, unless it's the single greatest work ever.


Shelley seems to be the favourite right now, but I really can't see that happening.

That would really good. Pearce really is just gold on the mic, and Jacobs is a personal guilty pleasure of mine.


Doin' It For Her and Lacey's Angels in the same stable, along with Pearce would make me roll into a little ball of joy, much like a field mouse.

Thought I might as well give a brief run down of the ROH Live In Tokyo show, as it's one of the new DVDs out and I thought some people might be interested in getting it what ever way they do.


Rocky Romero & Davey Richards V Jack Evans & Kotaro Suzuki.


My dislike for Rocky Romero and Jack Evans was in question in this match. Suzuki is a good Tag Wrestler, plus he has one hell of worker in Ricky Marvin as his usual partner so he always shines. I mark for Davey Richards. Anyway the match, starts off after the whole NRC jump Delirious who was welcoming the Tokyo crowd to ROH in his unique way. The match built very way, it went pretty long and the crowd where really into it and quite loud which isn't always usual for a Japanese crowd. Some really good spots to the outside and off the top rope. Rocky Romero gave Jack Evans three stiff kicks up side the head and got the three count. Good match, the US crowd would have loved this. ***1/2


Shuhei Taniguchi vs. Akihiko Ito


Two NOAH young lions being given some in-ring time here. In an uneventful match, Taniguchi won with a German Suplex with a difference, he literally pulled up his opponent and Germaned him, not like the usual 'receiver jumps to help the giver' German Suplex. Put this match in front of a US crowd and they'd crap all over it with "Boring" chants. While yes it wasn't the most exciting match it was a basic, solid match. Both men look very decent in the ring. **


Jimmy Rave vs. BJ Whitmer


Kinda Meh really, they sort of just went through the motions of a regular match. Rave won when he hit the pedigree out of nowhere, the crowd wasn't into it at all either. The reason it wasn't so great was probably because they don't want to the over shadow the next match or BJ Whitmer is incapable of having a good match that's not against Jimmy Jacobs. *1/4


Bryan Danielson vs. Go Shiozaki


If this match was woman it'd probably be Jennifer Aniston or someone. Danielson came out supporting a old-school robe...BADASS! Go chopped the holy hell out of Danielson, not Roddy Strong levels of chopping but really, really stiff chops. Danielson worked on Go's arm after this. Go would sell the arm like a champ and Danielson egged him on to chop him, Go would try his best but it didn't effect Danielson Go would go straight back to selling the arm, meanwhile Danielson just laughed off his weak chops...BADASS! They took it to the floor, Danielson knocked Go into the crowd and did his kickass dive into the crowd totally...BADASS! They came back into the ring and just went for it. Both men traded, clotheslines, forearms, suplexs, top rope suplex's, submissions and it was great to watch, Go went for his moonsault (He really is the next Kobashi!) but missed. Danielson went for the elbows to the side of the head but Go wouldn't give up nor get knocked out, Danielson locked in the Cattle Mutilation, but Go made it to the ropes, he then backslided Danielson for the 2 count but Danielson locked in the Cattle Mutilation again and finally got Go to Tap...BADASS MATCH! Seriously, was kick ass in very way. I wish Go would be a regular in ROH like Mori, KENTA and such are and were. I can't pimp this enough you've got to see it! ****3/4 Would I rate this higher than Briscoes V MCMG? Not quite, Would I rate this higher than the Backlash Main Event? Just, Would I rate this higher than KENTA & Ishimori vs. Marufuji & Ibushi? Just. So it's my 2nd favourite of the year so far.


Fight Without Honor - Roderick Strong V Delirious


I was disappointed with this match, I felt it went way to long and didn't feature enough Hardcoreness to warrant the Fight Without Honor stipulation. The crowd where into it and then sat on their hands with there mouths taped up pretty much throughout the match. The finish to kinda came out of nowhere, well to me it did as I was really bored of the match. Delirious gets the 3 with a Cross armed, sit out powerbomb. Delirious steals members of the crowd's hat and chews on it after the match. **1/2


Jay Briscoe, Mark Briscoe & Marufuji Naomichi vs. Matt Sydal, Ricky Marvin and Atsushi Aoki


It was a cross breed of ROH fast paced, high-flying style of match mixed with a Random NOAH 6 man. Still was a great match, awesome spot where Briscoes and Marufuji did a triple corner kick to Aoki (who was a last minute replacement for KENTA) Some more great double team moves on Aoki who was like the main guy getting his ass handed to him during the match. He made the hot tag and all hell broke loose, some great action during this part of the match. The finish saw Murafuji give a totally badass kick to Matt Sydal for the 3. ***1/2


ROH World Title - Takshi Morishima V Nigel McGuiness


Intense, stiff and all that you'd except from this match. Both men went fall out for 20 minutes, McGuiness went for the jawbreaker lariat early on but Mori blocked it, it added to the finish later on as it was hyped as the finishing move of Nigel. Nigel did some high flying with a dive onto Shima on the outside from the top rope, plus hit the Tower of London from the top rope onto the apron (Mori blocked it and made it look poopy) Shima was boo'ed like the big bad wolf in a Little Red hiding hood play. Nigel get all intense and went for the lariat's and stuff but Mori wouldn't go down, Nigel finally hit the jawbreaker lariat and the crowd thought this is it, new champ! But Morishima kicked out, got pissed, lariated the snot out of Nigel and gave him a shockingly dangerous backdrop that made me wonder how the hell Nigel could up! Great Main Event, ***3/4


Overall, if you have a chance to get this show please do it. You don't have to like Japanese wrestling to enjoy it. I'd give it a 7/10 overall.

I need that Shiozaki - Danielson match in my life.


I love the random NOAH "three heels, three faces, you've got yourselves a match" thing. It's always a nice way to showcase a lot of different styles at once.

If it's Rave as well I'll wet my pants. His aprupt leave from the company may have been a work all along.


If it is, ROH have REALLY raised the bar when it comes to angles.

isnt rave under contract to ROH?


He was on the TNA PPV and the iMPACT tapings. I don't know if he has signed a proper contract or is just working under a few dates/trial contract. But if he and ROH work us and TNA then boy, that's just plain greatness!
