This is right about when the Holy Demon Army confront Kobashi for nursing his fuckin' beer and work a lengthy heat segment on him.

Too bad Owen and Neidhart never got a title run as the New Foundation or as heels in late '94-early '95.

Even as a kid, I loved the NWA, then later WCW having a top ten contenders list. It gives matches that may otherwise seem unimportant a reason for happening. It makes every win and loss big. I wouldn't mind seeing AEW do something similar.

Did you check Evolve years ago when they had a rankings system?  i thought it was a neat idea but while I didn't see the shows at the time the system got mixed results.

They did a rankings system?  I guess I either forgot that or wasn't paying attention to it as much as I thought at the time.

I thought they did for the ROH Title and maybe ROH Pure Title as well. Granted my memory is hit or miss :).

It wouldn't shock me if they did.  @Nice Guy Eddie would likely know for sure.

I honestly forgot about ROH's ranking system as well.

 
Contenders for Championships

Originally, Ring of Honor had no formal way to determine challengers for its World Championship. When Xavier, a heel champion, began to avoid challengers, Ring of Honor instated a "Top Five Ranking" system to establish contenders to the title. It ranked wrestlers based on their general win-loss record, and their win-loss record against other ranked competitors. The top contender held the Number One Contender's Trophy, which was treated as a second championship at the time, and defended as such.

ROH abolished the ranking-system with the creation of the new Code of Honor. The ranking system disappeared, replaced by the Contenders Ring, a more complex polling system whereby ROH officials would submit rankings after each show. Wrestlers who appeared on more than 75% of the ballots were considered to be in the Contenders Ring, which earned them title shots for both the World and Pure Championships.

In January 2005, Ring of Honor did away with the Contenders Ring. Instead, wrestlers who wanted a title shot had to submit a petition to ROH officials. After receiving such a petition, ROH officials kept track of the petitioner's record, quality of opposition, respect shown towards the Code of Honor, and inherent skill. These factors determined who would receive a title shot. Despite the petition system, ROH officials retained the ability to determine number one contenders.

Upon the naming of Jim Cornette as ROH Commissioner in October 2005, Ring of Honor management confirmed the return of the Top Five Ranking system. The "Top 5" was voted on by Cornette and other ROH officials during the first week of every month, only. Voting was based on won/lost record and quality of opposition, with a heavy emphasis on the previous month.

In July 2006, Ring of Honor again dropped the Top 5 concept, as it had not consistently determined ROH World Title challengers. The champion at the time, Bryan Danielson, had instead been sending open contracts to wrestlers in other promotions around the world, with ROH officials also choosing contenders from within the company. Subsequent champion Homicide would continue Danielson's policy, eventually losing the title to Takeshi Morishima from Pro Wrestling Noah. After Morishima won the belt, it seemed that he could choose his challengers, as he defended it (with ROH and Noah approval) at NOAH's March 4, 2007 Budoukan Hall show against KENTA.
