    House of Truth was a great little stable with Lethal, Dijack, her and Truth Martini. Martini had a falling out with ROH as well. Damn shame because I always found him entertaining even though I think he's got a chick's name and it sounds stupid.

    But what's also odd to me about Hendrix's story is for years she claimed Mandy Leon and Delirious ran her out. Now its this. I guess we'll see because ROH officially said they are looking into it today but I have my doubts.

    Between the WM tourist crowd and the size of the NYC market I expect the show to be an easy sellout too.

    60 percent sold on an honor club presale...

    This is going to be a virtual sellout 10 minutes after it goes on sale Friday...

    WWE doesn't really care about MSG and they haven't for a long time. Yes they still run about 2-3 times per year but maybe if this was 15 years ago it would be some huge blow but it's not.

    Due to the union contracts in that section of Manhattan they can no longer run cost effective TV there but its still a regular stop on their house show tour. They had a US title change and an Undertaker house show appearance at MSG within the past year or so.

    There are reports the WWE tried to stop this show and exerted pressure on the Staple Center in LA to prevent non-WWE wrestling events from appearing there as well.

    I don't think Vince McMahon is losing sleep over it but I do think he cares.

    They cared enough to try to stop it the first time ROH tried getting a show there. They also care enough that they're reportedly ready to throw big money at The Elite and Cody just to keep them away from the show and the same goes for other talent that could be on the card.

    Well they've always done that with indy stars, and I think the Cody thing with the Young Bucks is in response to how well All-In sold, not so much the MSG thing.

    Also let's be real here, they did this during WM weekend when there are 100k+ wrestling fans in the area because of WM and a lot of those fans know who ROH is because they keep up on the indy scene, if they ran MSG in mid-June would the result be the same? Probably not(and they wouldn't run MSG in June because they know it wouldn't sell out), so yes while still an accomplishment it's not this incredibly shocking thing people are making it out to be.

    If Omega jumps then Neville needs to get out of his contract and headline the show. He'll be held in the same regard as AJ and Omega if he gets 6 months outside of the WWE right now.

    It could obviously all be a work but if Bryan really does have a pending contract and is thinking of an NJPW/Indy run this show has to factor in his decision.

    Not sure of this his contract status but Cesaro to me is someone stuck as a perpetual tag team/mid card guy who would kill it outside of the WWE. He's 37 so maybe he prefers a stable paycheck but younger wrestlers have to look at Drew McIntyre and Cody reinventing themselves on the Indies and making a shit ton of money in the process as a new career path .

    This and All In are total game changers. There's serious money outside of the WWE now. The big question if this has any factor on the TV landscape.

    It's just not selling out an arena. It was an instant sell out and the ticket prices were insanely highy... between the platinum tickets and the ones ROH funneled to the secondary market the legitimate gate of the show is going to be in 2-3 million range.

    I honestly believe they could have sold this show out without the WM tourist crowd

    I think I've read Neville is just waiting out his contract, which I think is over in October. Apparently they wouldn't just release him so he moved back to England and is just waiting

    That's perfect. I heard his contract was frozen. As long as he's just letting his body heal, waiting for his contract to run out, that works.
    He was obviously dissatisfied with his role in the company but that's fair as he's as talented as anyone on the roster but was treated like preshow material.
    Even if ROH loses wrestlers in a talent raid there should be replacements on the market.
