I would also say Low Ki since he was the first ROH Champ, but who knows how badly those bridges are burnt. If he didn't burn those bridges, and it was 5 instead of 4, I'd say Ki, Daniels, Joe, and the Briscoes.

ROH has announced - in conjunction with their 20th Anniversary - they will be starting a Hall of Fame

4 members will be in the initial class

First person will be announced on Monday, January 31 and then each Monday after will be a new one

Bryan Danielson, Samoa Joe, CM Punk and Christopher Daniels would be my four.

I want to believe Mark Briscoe is really well spoken and articulate and is just super committed to staying in character.

Bryan Danielson and a few other wrestlers took an IQ test. Bryan's was high as was one of the Briscoe Brothers. I think it's in Danielson's must read autobiography.

Punks run was short compared to the others so I could see him being left out the first class. Also Jay Lethal could sneak into the first class since he was around for almost the entire time the company has ran just like the Briscoes, who are really the right first announcement, they have been there the whole time and kind of the backbone of the company.

I'm confused about this Hall of Fame stuff. Are they going to do an actual ceremony? Or is it just an excuse to run themed TV episodes?

Ring of Honor is proud to welcome Bryan Danielson, the embodiment of fighting spirit and technical wrestling excellence, into the inaugural class of the ROH Hall of Fame.

“The American Dragon” played a major role in establishing ROH as the Best Wrestling on the Planet, beginning with his performance in the main event on ROH’s debut show, The Era of Honor Begins, in 2002.

Whenever “The Final Countdown” blared throughout the building as Danielson made his entrance to the ring, fans knew they were about to witness a true master of his craft at work.

A superior technician, striker and submission specialist, Danielson cemented his status as the best wrestler in the sport when he won the ROH World Title in 2005. His 462-day reign as ROH World Champion is the third-longest, and he made a record 38 successful title defenses.

Danielson made history in 2006 when he defeated arch rival and ROH Pure Champion Nigel McGuinness in Liverpool, England to merge the titles. He also won the inaugural Survival of the Fittest in 2004 and main-evented ROH’s first pay-per-view in 2007.

Danielson had many impressive victories in ROH, but one of his most memorable performances came in defeat. Just over four minutes into his match against then-ROH World Champion Takeshi Morishima in 2007, Danielson suffered a detached retina as a result of the Japanese powerhouse’s clubbing blows.

Morishima targeted Danielson’s injured left eye throughout the match, but Danielson showed incredible toughness and heart and came within a fraction of a second of winning before Morishima ultimately prevailed after more than 20 dramatic minutes.

After leaving ROH in 2009, Danielson would gain world-wide fame in WWE, where he main-evented WrestleMania in 2014 before more than 75,000 fans at the Superdome in New Orleans. Danielson is currently one of the top stars in AEW.

Danielson joins the Briscoes in the inaugural ROH Hall of Fame class. More inductees will be announced in the coming weeks.

A career retrospective on Danielson will be featured on this weekend’s episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling television, and a YouTube special on Danielson drops Monday, Feb. 14 at 9 a.m. ET on ROH’s YouTube channel.

A special Hall of Fame episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling featuring all of the inductees airs on TV the weekend of March 5.

Yeah, that's what I'm saying. Seems like just a way to goose TV viewership. Will the guys even get plaques or anything? Did ROH even ask/inform them beforehand?

EDIT: Unless the "special Hall of Fame episode" is new, and will bring everyone together. But that little blurb is anything but explicit on that.

I would hope that Xavier, Second City Saints / Punk & Cabana, and Nigel McGuiness would be in the conversation, but Nigel being a WWE employee may make that problematic.

And yeah, Jimmy Rave and Larry Sweeney should be academic picks.
