haha, NO. This post is officially a mousetrap, just to sidetrack the comments off of posts I may care about. If you otherwise don’t know but slightly care, ROH is changing bookers and Adam Pearce is apparently one of those in charge. Go listen to the Wrestling Observer shows for more. Truthfully, the fact that my TiVo marked this morning CMLL FSE show as “copy-protected; may not download to computer” is much more of a concern than this.
There are three quick lucha points worth making, which is why I bring it up at all:
– Still don’t expect Mexico based luchadors in ROH and similar indies. Those treat no-shows as huge no-no, Mexican luchadors do not appear to fret over missing US dates. (Hello Oriental.) Doesn’t really matter who’s running ship as long as that stays the same way.
– Blue Demon Jr. is going to stay the NWA champ; it’s said Pearce was one of few who knew the booking change was going down, so it’s fair to assume he knew he wouldn’t be available to be NWA champ, at least for the moment, and Demon makes as much sense as anyone. The whole “arm under the rope” is to set up a future rematch, not a drawn out reversal of the original finish.
– Even ROH doesn’t have confidence in ROH style matches drawing enough to make the company profitable; why does AAA?
This is half troll, because AAA isn’t going to make it/break it based on the ROH-style guys they’re bringing in, and AAA is bringing in the guys to be different than everyone else while ROH’s problems suffer from too much similarity, but I still think it’s a funny line and I don’t regret it all.
