    Sounds like some fans are seriously unhappy with ROH tonight

    just saw kenny vs cody... not impressed with the wrestling, but they sure know how to keep the story going.

    If they’re unhappy with ROH, sounds like the streaming issues.

    If they’re unhappy with the show, I think it’s because they got results and angles that they just didn’t like.

    They’re Ring of Honor. Not New Japan. Their booking has to be focused on the guys they have.

    Sounded like the stream more than anything, I saw several people on Twitter who said they paid the 9.99 for Honor Club and ended up missing half the event.

    I know some were unhappy with the event but I’m not sure if that was about the results or the matches themselves

    Su Yung wearing a bloody wedding dress is a pretty terrifying sight. The last time I saw her in Chicago, she was a smiling, happy, aw shucks good guy, so just like Courtney Rush turning into Rosemary a few years back, it's the really sweet ones you have to worry about when they come back from an extended stay in Florida.

    Kimber Lee closed out the weekend against Nicole Savoy. Not too crazy about it, and as much as I like Nicole Savoy, if she's not in a strong rivalry, I don't know that the Shimmer format of champion vs. four unique challengers is working for her the way it did for Cheerleader Melissa and Madison Eagles. Su Yung was massively cheered against Nicole Savoy early on Sunday, and the Kimber Lee match just wasn't as loved as the LuFisto & Hudson Envy vs. Mia Yim & Kay Lee Ray match that immediately preceded it.

    Nicole Matthews (who I believe legitimately had the flu - which kept Madison Eagles out yesterday), incorporated it into her matches by coming out with her hair up and loose-fitting clothes while coughing on referees and opponents. A bloody nose really completed the visual, and her match with Rachael Ellering was a standout.

    Of all the people to lose their title, Shazza McKenzie was the one I thought who was doing the best with hers, but she lost the Heart of Shimmer Championship to Rosemary's stablemate Dust.

    But overall, any weekend where you get a pom pom from Cheerleader Melissa and see the Minnesota Homewrecking Crew together is a good one. In street clothes, Rain looks a lot like Jenny Rose.

    Those are the Super Strong Style tournament dates. I want to go to that, but I really don't want to go to London and be stuck there for three days... Especially when I'm looking to go to at least two other shows this year.


    Anyway, the names so far for this year are:
    Pete Dunne
    Keith Lee
    Zack Sabre Jr.
    Doug Williams
    Angelico
    Mark Andrews
    Flash Morgan Webster
    Chuck Mambo
    Chris Brookes
    Jordan Devlin
    Joey Janela
    TK Cooper
    David Starr
    Tyler Bate
    Kassius Ohno

    One name left to be announced.

    Apparently the World of Sport show here in the UK is back in production, with taping happening in a month or two.

    Expect the WWE UK show to be happening again...

    David Finlay (Fit Finlay's son for those who didn't know) and Jay White had an absolutely awesome match. It wasn't a classic, but it was really really good for two very young wrestlers. Blew me away. Great stuff. I've always liked both of them, but this is the first time they blew my mind.

    So excited for Juice vs. Goto on Friday.

    What a badass promo by Juice Robinson. WWE made a mistake letting him walk.

    That Progress card looks sweet, think I'm going to have to head to one of the days this weekend.

    Think I need to hit day two to see my boy Trav.

    Never been to a wrestling show at Ally Pally but it's a great venue for music gigs.
