I was pumped up for my first show being the 9/11 with Foley but man I think they just about guaranteed me coming back for this one too. The chance to see Liger live in person is well worth the drive. With almost every show having a kick ass main event and the company reaching out to bring in smark favorites I think ROH has made the best of a horrible situation and is starting to turn the corner. I don't know if they are making any money but hey they are bringing the goods and thats all I need.
DM: They really don't make ANY money last I heard reported (from Meltzer), but they do have a lot of it to throw around it would appear. Silkin is very wealthy and they have other people tossing cash willy nilly.
BWT: ROH really HAS made the best of the situation, bringing Low Ki back, running with some hot angles, getting Foley in for a few shows (and a shoot tape that will make them good money, too) and now freaking Jushin Liger. The wrestling has also (IMO) been better since the Feinstein mess, and as a whole it's just been a better company. They deserve some props for trying their hardest to mend the situation as best they could and delivering what their fanbase wants. I mean come on - Jushin Liger!
From what I'd read in many places, the ROH business philosophy was to break even on the shows, the live event itself, and then make profit on the tape sales. Whether that's still the idea after the RF split, I don't know, but I think having Liger should make for two hot selling tapes. And whatever plans I had for November 5th are now cancelled.
Vampiro gave a tomstone piledriver to the Midget Blue Monkey
This immediately and unequivocally makes him PUBLIC ENEMY #1
Looks like there is a chance Liger will be doing WWE Dark Matches on 11/07 and 11/08. I really hope that the WWE pulls a WCW and brings him in for a few TV shows just to have some great matches, however if this is true I only see it as being a one shot deal.
Well, my two cents are that attempting to work a "fake" match where the two particpants are co-operating to put on a staged spectacle would not be my cup of tea but I can understand the attraction for wannabe wrestlers.
