Here we are. Death Before Dishonor is almost certainly the end of this current post-elite era of ROH. With the potential exit of Matt Taven and Marty Scurll, a new era will start after this show. I for one look forward to a new era of ROH. I hope that it gets back to the basics; young exciting talent having some of the best matches in the world before they are huge stars.
If ROH can quickly get back to this, I would be so excited. It gets very tiresome to write negative comments every week. I truly hope that ROH finds a way out of its current booking slump and starts a new great era for the company.
