Tangential ROH news

Sinclair is buying the YES Network (don't get me started)

This most likely means ROH will air on YES so it gives them a regular spot in NY and basically the Northeast

It's actually a combination of the Yankees, Amazon, and Sinclair, but yeah,.  It's lead to other fans screaming that the Yankees couldn't go after overpriced FA's but can buy the Network back.

I think we’re getting to close to either A) A Dalton Castle heel turn or B) A Dalton Castle departure.  Both announcers went out of their way to suggest Castle was inside his own head, disappointed and struggling.  I really hope it’s neither of those (Though I would LOVE a Castle-Velveteen Dream showdown) but it was quite the burial on commentary

Dalton looks just wrecked physically. I think he could really use an extended break.

This has been a thing going back to his championship win. He needs to heal up in the worst of way if he even can at this point.

ROH's roster has gotten deeper, so now would probably be a good time for Dalton to be given an extended break.

ROH showing highlights two weeks in a row with unprotected chairshots to the head is a real bad look.  Even if one of the men involved is undead

The Ospreay match was bad over in Japan.   He needs six months off at this point.

This week's tv was alright. The opening tag was a lot of fun. See below for my comments on PCO. I'm almost scared to see what he does at the ppv this weekend with the equally crazy Briscoes. The WOH match was pretty "eh" and the last two minutes or so featured some miscommunication that was pretty bad. Iwatani vs. Klein could be good depending on how they structure the match. Iwatani's moonsault is very pretty. Is that a Stardom thing? It's just as good looking as Io's, I thought. Main event was okay. Castle needs some time off. He's gone from a performer I thought was on the verge of breaking out to just a guy. The act feels a bit tired at this point and like a few guys noted, his work is suffering under the weight of injuries. I'd love for him to take some time off to heal up and then come back to a massive pop at a big show.

This ROH run is the first stuff I'm seeing of PCO's indie run and it leads me to believe that this man is insane. I get that he's probably going as hard as he can to stack some cash up in a few years but man, I hope it's worth it.

It was sad seeing Dalton like that and commentary drove that home.  If it's mentioned on TV I hope that leads to him either taking time off or being written off for awhile.

It's official. At the G1, Marty gets his title shot against the winner of Lethal/Taven at the 17th Anniversary show.

I haven't been following ROH as closely as I normally have the past month or two. Are PCO and Marty's crew supposed to be faces?

Yes. They faced off with The Kingdom in their first appearance together; and PCO & Brody King are challenging the Briscoes for the tag titles at the 17th Anniversary show tomorrow. There was really no way to treat them as heels. Marty is one of, if not the most over guy in ROH. PCO came in as one of the most over indy acts. I think it would have been dumb to try and treat them as heels.

I don't know if anyone else lives in Las Vegas or flying into town but Is anyone else going to the Anniversary show tomorrow night?

And, really, The Elite finally fully turned face with the Bullet Club split last year, so Marty was already a face.

He was never really interested in working heel, anyways. Much like the rest of Bullet Club, he cared more about popping the crowd.

In the US at least. They definitely turned up the heel antics in Japan.

I don't regret letting my Honor Club VIP subscription, but I do wish it had had one more week on it, because holy fuck tonight's ppv sounds fascinating.

I'm thinking about getting the replay. I have one concern about the tag title match, however.

Spoiler

PCO & Brody King likely only won the titles to protect the Briscoes from losing to GoD. It's bad enough GoD half ass it in New Japan. Can you imagine them sleepwalking through an ROH tag title reign? I really hope I'm wrong, but we know how Delirious is Gedo's bitch.

I'm more interested in them kicking it old school ROH in the world title match.

There was another title vs. title match announced, which spoils the outcome of a New Japan Cup match that hasn't occured yet.
