Countdown to 15 Anniversary 2
On March 10, ROH will be celebrating their 15 year anniversary as a company and with that being the case I thought it'd be a good time to look back. Over the last 15 years we have seen a lot of great moments and matches from ROH and as the anniversary show draws nears. The last time we got together our focus was on the first ever show of Ring of Honor. Now we will look back at the biggest feud in ROH history and that was with Kevin Steen and El Generico.
These two men were once one of the top teams in ROH before December 2009's edition of Final Battle when Steen turned on Generico following there match against the Young Bucks with the chair shot that started it all. One chair shot sparked a feud that is still going in some form to this day with it now including there time in the WWE. I don't want to say much as I want the video to do the talking for me so here we go:
What if: ROH Had a Hall of Fame
For the last 15 years ROH has been building up there fan base and seemingly always finding ways to reevaluate the company and develop new stars from the ground up every time someone leaves. From names like Christopher Daniels to Bryan Danielson to Samoa Joe to more modern names like Nigel McGuinness, Kevin Steen, or Steve Corino. Over the course of the companies history numerous talent have left a lasting impact on the company and have lasting legacy and is very Hall of Fame worthy.
The company is the only major company that doesn't not have a Hall of Fame for talent as of right now, but I think that eventually they will be moving to forming a Hall of Fame in the next couple of years as every company always looks to honor the past and legends from yesteryear.
If I had to select someone to go into the Hall of Fame first is a tough choice because I think that they could pick one of two people. Both of the names are currently a part of the WWE, but I do think that they would allow either of the guys to make a one off appearance for ROH. The two names I am thinking about are "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson and the longest reigning World Champion in the history of the company in Samoa Joe.
The impact that Samoa Joe and Bryan Danielson have left on Ring of Honor is one worth remembering and even though neither one of them will compete again in the company for different reasons both are worthy enough to be the first inductee into the ROH Hall of Fame if the company was ever to make one.
In a little over a month one of the top "Indy" companies in the US will be reaching a milestone event in the history of the company. Originally the company began on February 23, 2002 live from the ECW Arena as the Era of Honor had began. The first event was headlined by a Triple Threat match between Low-Ki, Christopher Daniels, and "American Dragon" Bryan Danielson and these three men would later become known as the founding fathers of Ring of Honor. Though the period of growth was slow things for the company came together as time went on they moved from and a company in develop to one of the "big three" in wrestling nowadays along with TNA and WWE.
Considering the amount of content I normally publish for ROH is limited I thought it be a good idea to look at some of the best moments from the companies last 15 years in existence. For more information on the actual event visit ROHwrestling.com
I was searching through videos on the Youtubes for a pretty random and underrated match from Ring of Honor specifically; as I wanted to give a post to ROH. In recent years I think that the ROH Television title has reached the levels of where the WWE Intercontinental title was at in the 1980's and 1990's as the companies workhorse title and a way to groom a future World champion for the title. I mean look at past winners of the gold like Jay Lethal, Eddie Edwards, Adam Cole and others held the TV title first and then moved on to become World champions.
This match is in my opinion the embodiment of the hot run the title was on last year following the historic run by Jay Lethal as champion. When Roderick won the title he did all he could to keep the momentum going for the title for as long as he could and this match is just an example of that. Unfortunately, the momentum for the title now isnt where it was but the TV title is still very prestigious.
