Imagine watching EVERYTHING Ring of Honor has produced in 20 plus years. When you’re done, imagine writing detailed reviews and reports on EVERYTHING. That’s exactly what the Honorable Journey for McXal looks like. McXal joins Jeff to talk shop and the legacy of ROH from 2002-2022. We discuss the message board, tape trading, and writing about wrestling of all types in this MEGASODE!

An Honorable Journey can begin anywhere but for @NotDrDeath Steve Williams it began with the thought of being a pro wrestler and continues on with being a twitter superstar.
Steve joins @mrjeffschwartz0 for this episode of An Honorable Mention to discuss training at OVW, doing ROH ring crew and tape trading amongst many other topics that will definitely get you laughing, smiling, and heading to your local twitter to follow...

Imagine being one of possibly 100 people in an entire country to order Ring of Honor’s very first Pay Per View, Respect is Earned in July 2007. That is Scott McConnell’s origin story, in his Honorable Journey to ROH fandom. Scott joined Jeff to discuss his reverse journey in Honor, watching tapes bought from ebay with his friend’s mom’s card. This episode, Jeff is absolutely stunned when he hears about the 3 live events Scott at...

The most asked question in professional wrestling is how do I get into the business? Brian Bellinger simply just volunteered and found himself in a dream job. Brian joins Jeff because Hagadorn is still on Paternity leave for another discussion on getting a job in the business.
Brian is a jack of all trades, from setting up to tearing down, production and visual help as well. Brian was a fan in 2002 and by the time ROH closed its...

Every story has twists and turns and the story of Chris from and Jeff is quite similar.

Jeff has been itching to do this one since the podcast was born and here we finally are covering the night Samoa Joe earned his crown as ROH Champion. Not only is the night historic for that, but it also marks the FIRST TIME Jay and Mark Briscoe operated as a team in Ring of Honor, and what a match came as a result!
On top of that, Christopher Daniels and Doug Williams have a banger, the CM Punk and Raven feud switches to another le...

YOU, yes YOU are alive and hopefully well for the historic & legendary 200th Episode of An Honorable Mention as Jeff & Shane board the Honorable Plane of Honor and head to Tokyo for The Tokyo Summit, which was also Ring of Honor’s 200th Show. DDT, NJPW, Kensuke Office, Pro Wrestling NOAH, & Ring of Honor agreed to a Summit, in Tokyo in September of 2008.

Why Hopkins? Well, Hagadorn wanted to know why…SPOILER ALERT…there’s a fifteen second World Title match in the main event. That’s the only real reason, a curiosity needed to be sated, and in the process, we got to experience a show that was damn entertaining for most of the show! One of the best TV Title bouts that probably ever took place, a tremendous outing from Adam Page and ACH, The Briscoes and War Machine having a tag team b...

You voted on the annual Supercard poll, and this week we take a trip to 2008 for the third installment of the premier Ring of Honor event! It’s the last year for the Dragon Gate trios matches, it’s a rematch of one of 2007’s best World Title bouts, and it’s a reading of a police report on the air!

Part two of our random events picked by Lil Old Shane, ones that took place after he got fired! Now it’s time to revisit the Frontier Fieldhouse right up the street from Mama Rosa’s in good old Chick-ago Ridge, revisit the Ringmaster’s Challenge, and revisit some Briscoe on Homicide Violence!!
It’s a master class main event, a top shelf Tag Team Title tussle, a wild tag team match of another kind, the announcers at ringside, the rin...

Hagadorn randomly picked an event that took place after he got fired, and the dart landed on two 2014 events just prior to the New Japan Pro Wrestling incursion into ROH! The first of these two shows took ROH to the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee, and put two championships on the line!
Adam Cole and Matt Taven went toe-to-toe over the ROH World Title, while reDRagon was put into an Instant Reward Match with the potential result b...

Y’all love 2007 don’t you? You must since the votes were in your hands, the fate of AHM was in your hands, and you picked another 2007 event!
This time though, we cross the pond back to the Liverpool Olympia, to bid Samoa Joe a final farewell to cap off the 5th Year Festival! On top of that, BJ Whitmer and Jimmy Jacobs take their violent rivalry to the UK, Cabana and Delirious bring the funny that thankfully Prazak and Lenny are th...

We just keep rolling into 2007 so now it is on to Edison, NJ and the awful Inman Sports Club! It’s another cold one, January in the Northeast after all, and we’ve got chairs to carry from the parking lot into the building, a truck to possibly get stuck in the mud, and plenty of wrestling action!

We are back with our first show of 2022, and we are doing so with the first show of 2007! It was a frigid, bitter, miserable cold night in Braintree and also a sad evening as January 26th of 2007 was also when one of ROH’s founding fathers, and former President of the company, Doug Gentry, passed away at only 34 years of age.
It was a sad beginning to the new year, especially given how beloved G...

Who knew 19 years ago that Ring of Honor would be deemed so important to the wrestling landscape that there would be not one, but two podcasts dedicated to honoring the history of ROH?

This week, Hagadorn is off on assignment so @MrJeffSchwartz0 sat down with the other ROH Podcast tag team, the fellas from ThROH The Years, Trevor Dame & Matt Feuerstein!

October 2008 marked the end of ROH’s first era when Gabe Sapolsky was terminated from his position as Booker, and November 2008 officially began the next era with Adam Pearce’s first events! It just seems appropriate that Scrap Daddy’s first event would also be the first-time for an ROH event in Montreal, QC, Canada!

The most intriguing part of this shifting landscape may be everything that went on between the last of Gabe and the f...

    The Piketon Massacre

    The most notorious mass murder in Ohio’s history happened on the night of April 21, 2016 in rural Pike County. Four crime scenes, thirty-two gunshot wounds, eight members of the Rhoden family left dead in their homes. Two years later a local family of four, the Wagners, are arrested and charged with the crimes. As the Wagners await four back-to-back capital murder trials, the KT Studios team revisits Pike County to examine: crime-scene forensics, upcoming legal proceedings, and the ties that bind the victims and the accused. As events unfold and new crimes are uncovered, what will it mean for all involved? What will it mean for Pike County?
