RoH signed a national distribution deal today for their shows. The details are fuzzy, and they will become a lot clearer tomorrow when MKJ from PWinsider sits down with Rob tomorrow, but from what I've now gathered, they will be releasing shows from Epic Encounter (4/12/03) onwards, with new shows being exclusive to RFVideo for 3 months, and then released nationally. The idea behind excluding the first year of shows is that they look so Indy and backyardish that it would turn people off immediately. Epic Encounter has what tons of people are calling the match of the year, Paul London vs. American Dragon 2/3 falls.
I'm not sure when this all starts, more info will come out tomorrow, but I think this will be a great way for people to start seeing what all the hype is about.

Being able to send in an order doesn't make something national, otherwise, our neighbors who sell strawberry jam and have a website for it would be classified as an international corporation, since they'll ship to other countries. In order for something to be classified as national, it needs to be available locally, all over the country. The title is perfectly accurate, it just requires that you understand what the words national and distribution mean.
\Dis`tri*bu"tion\, n. [L. distributio: cf. F. distribution.] 1. The act of distributing or dispensing; the act of dividing or apportioning among several or many; apportionment; as, the distribution of an estate among heirs or children.
\Na"tion*al\ (?; 277), a. [Cf. F. national.] 1. Of or pertaining to a nation; common to a whole people or race; public; general; as, a national government, language, dress, custom, calamity, etc.
2. Attached to one's own country or nation
According to both definitions ROH via RF Video already would be considered national.. BOOYA !

Nice try, but now try looking up the definition of national distribution in regards to what it means in regards to industry and you'll find something completely different. It's cute how you get all excited about seemingly winning a meaningless argument, however. I wish I was so easily entertained these days. :(

Gosh, isn't that what the big W is all about InVerse...something pointless to laugh at sometimes around all the seriousness. You didn't get a laugh or the slightest bit of entertainment from that!?!

I think anyone with an IQ over the level of 3 could figure out I was referring to a national DVD distribution. And even if you were horribly tricked, didn't the post explain it anyway? Or did the trickiness upset you that much?
Remembering that Summerslam was the best PPV last year, and noting that last night's show was one of the best so far this year, I'm excited. Here's what I'm hoping we'll see next month: Angle vs. Brock, nobody does a heel turn.
