Default A TNA/ROH merge, what would it be called?

If Sinclair can truly find a way to buy TNA and have a plan to remain profitable despite bringing on a ton of new contracts then it may be the biggest boost to the wrestling scene since WCW and ECW. An merger of the #2 and #3 promotions in the United States, if marketed properly, could bring a lot of eyes to the new promotion; and make no mistake, it would need to be a new promotion. A promotion mixing the credibility of the ROH product with the "big name" rich history of TNA.

If TNA did one thing right it was in giving their World Title a huge list of superstar champions which is something ROH simply can't contend with. Then again, ROH does have champions like Daniel Bryan who may be the biggest star of this era outside of CM Punk and John Cena that never went to TNA. Create a new title, consider the lineages of ROH and TNA to be canon with it, and start a completely new era of wrestling.

For the first time since they opened their doors, TNA is doing a lot with a little and it seems Billy Corgan may be the driving force behind that. Say what you will about a "rockstar with dreams of wrestling" but the man has experience. He has owned companies, he has made mistakes, and he is undoubtedly one of the most creative human beings alive. He has always loved wrestling and seems to genuinely want to put his all into wrestling now that his music career is winding down.

ROH speaks for itself. It has been the top independent promotion pretty much since the day it stepped on the scene and has managed to remain profitable in a wrestling industry where most companies bomb long before they can get any momentum. Mixing TNA's resources with ROH's know-how could be the perfect marriage.

Now there is the obvious issue: while TNA and ROH are more similar now than they have ever been, the two companies have operated very differently. The potential for butting heads is high, especially if Dixie Carter refuses to step out of the picture, and all of the potential of the two companies working together could be squandered by misplaced priorities and petty bickering. But this risk is worth it when you consider how huge a merger like this could be and the marketing bonanza that could keep the company afloat for a long time. A marketing bonanza that could make both companies more relevant than they have ever been before.

Now, the question you came here to answer, if ROH bought out TNA and the two companies merged, what should it be called? Calling it ROH or TNA would make it hard for fans to understand the "combing of lineages" that would be the ultimate benefit of such a merge. Plus a new name helps create a "brand launch" that could make huge headlines. So, what would you name this potential hybrid?
