What a night in the history of Ring of Honor; not only did it mark the departure of Colt Cabana for WWE, but it also marked the last (for the time being) night for several other roster members! Aries, Daniels, and Homicide all departed for TNA, while SHINGO ended his U.S. excursion to return home to Dragon Gate. Suffice it to say, the landscape of ROH would be quite different come April 29th, BUT the night of the 28th, now that ... Read more

From a bad opener to a red hot finale and a local...legend (?), this was one event that had it all for the fans in attendance, and those who actually bought the DVD (all 2000 of you)! But ultimately Jeff picked this event for one reason and one reason only, but you'll have to wait until the end for the reveal on that one! It's a trip back to April 2005 and Boston-area building #3245 for "Stalemate"! Join Jeff & Shane as they di... Read more

Yeah we know this was supposed to be "Stalemate", but after such an historic occasion as the G1 Supercard, it just seemed appropriate that two people for whom ROH has been such a huge part of their lives talk on the subject. For Shane it was experienced on a phone through the Honor Club, but for Jeff it was experienced firsthand as he sat front row in The Garden! Join our hosts as they talk their respective feelings on this landm... Read more

Back in the day when ROH was young, it wasn't exactly...politically correct...to say the least. It felt like a product of its time, spawned in the wake of ECW and the Attitude Era, but with much better wrestling than what was available on our TVs....right?? Well, join Jeff & Shane as they travel back to 2002 and revisit "A Night of Appreciation" so as to see if it truly is a case of "better in our memories"! It's Eddy Guerrero's... Read more

HE WASN'T THERE! Yeah, we ventured into that territory again...an event that took place after Shane was ousted from the company! It's the very first Wrestlemania Stalker Weekend after that, centered around Number 30 in New Orleans, and an event that Jeff personally attended. So we get some live experience talk, Shane tearing apart Lethal's turn, Teddy Hart's cat, airplanes with no fuel, Truth Martini on Bourbon Street, dangers o... Read more

It's Ring of Honor's fault you know? That whole...indy wrestling companies stalking Wrestlemania thing...it started right here with "Dragon Gate Challenge" and the triple shot weekend it kicked off! See, Wrestlemania 22 was in Chicago, so we started the festivities on Thursday in Detroit with this one before heading to Chicago Ridge for 2 straight nights! We had Dragon Gate action, we had a news broadcast, a broken ankle, nearly ... Read more

Ernie Osiris spent nearly a decade within the Ring of Honor system. From cutting his teeth training under Austin Aries, to working on the crew, to even working "Corino Position" on the live events, and somehow trying to squeeze actually wrestling matches in all of that. So with all that on his plate, with working as part of The Embassy alongside Prince Nana, Jimmy Rave, Claudio Castagnoli, Joey Ryan, and Tomasso Ciampa among othe... Read more

In 2009, Ring of Honor took its first true foray into television production when they signed onto the HDNet network, owned by Mark Cuban, and now better known as AXS TV. It made ROH the first wrestling company to be available on an HD platform, and offered many of the members of the ROH locker room their first opportunity to learn how to work TV...yes that is a very different thing than a DVD PRODUCT! Join Jeff & Shane as they be... Read more

He may be the 37 Star Match darling of Dave Meltzer & "Best Bout Machine" in 2019, but a decade ago Kenny Omega was fighting to prove he even belonged in Ring of Honor with the elite names of pro wrestling. This night in Canada was his chance to not only prove it, but also to surpass many of those names by claiming the World Title from Austin Aries. For the champ, whose 2nd title run had been pretty much hated by fans & office a... Read more

It was the day(s) Hollywood came to town to crash Ring of Honor's party! Not really, these 2 events wouldn't have even existed if not for "The Wrestler" movie tapings...whether or not that's a bad thing is up to the viewer of the DVD & the listener of this episode. Either way, it certainly made for a rather unique experience for both the fans in attendance, as well as the members of the ROH roster & crew. We got delicious peanut ... Read more

Y'all voted and here it is! It was a historic occasion...the final United States based appearance (at the time) for the legendary Samoa Joe where he would team with long-time rival Homicide to take on World Champ Morishima & Nigel McGuinness in the main event. But it wasn't just a night for goodbyes, it was also a night for blood and title changes and snow and smelling shoes!!! Join Jeff & Shane as they take a swim, or rather a t... Read more

This week, instead of covering a set event, we are joined by ROH Alumni Grizzly Redwood for a special interview conducted by a solo Shane Hagadorn! Right off the bat, we will warn you that the video version of this show had a few technical difficulties thanks to a troublesome laptop, but we've still got the majority of the interview for our patrons. The topics range from his initial discovery of Ring of Honor through wrestling ... Read more

Little did everyone know walking into Boston U that night, that we were about to tape Gabe Sapolsky's final ROH PPV. What we did know though what was that setting up at this venue was misery incarnate, and what we would find out by the end of the night was, not only the fate of our Tag & World Titles, but we also discovered that the BU fans were some of the loudest we encountered! Join Jeff & Shane as they talk Grizzly Redwood (or... Read more

Twas the Night before "GenNow" and the barbwire was wrapped; not a fan was silent, not even the rats... The tables were loaded, the thumbtacks were packed, while BJ paced silently out in the back... Necro Butcher was somewhere wandering around, while Claudio & Nate Webb wandered into town... Homicide was ready to have Hillbilly's back, while Bryan The Champ fought against a 3 man attack... Jimmy loved Lacey & Jack did his flips... Read more

Hagadorn didn't really get what Festivus is, so one fine day Jeff explained it to him...the airing of grievances, the feats of strength... and thus An Honorable Festivus was born!!! We don't endeavor to any of those feats, but there are plenty of grievances aired in this departure from our norm! We've got them written, we've got them audio, hell we've even got some in video form that will go up on our YouTube page in the coming da... Read more
