    In August of 2007 ROH was approached by The CW network, as a way to get Smackdown off the air, but still have wrestling on TV. A year later, The CW has not only put the offer back on the table, but gave them enough money to hire anybody they needed!

    After months of contractual issues, and deep negotiations Ring Of Honor is now ready to make it's debut to national television. With a roster that has become a blend of wwe, tna and ROH - how can they fail?

    I can tell this one is going to be good. Awesome roster and graphics. I can't wait to read your first show. I mean that I really, really like your roster. The backstory is pretty good, too. Good luck.

    I'm not so sure.......Its very unrealistic.The main reason why fans love ROH is because of its style and no gimmicks needed.Alot of the guys on your roster aren't really ROH regulars.Also the CW backstory is also a bit unbelivable.Why would they give money to a show?I mean isn't that the sponsers job?Anyway I'll leave it till the first show to review.Good luck.

    Well, I believe the only ones who have never been to ROH is Chris Jericho, Shane Helms, and Christian cage.... 3 names a promotion would reach out for had they gotten the opportunity. The rest have been in ROH before... And besides - the whole thing is to build a promotion the way you'd like to see it... Also, I'm pretty sure TV networks do give the show money to be on it's network..It's the sponsors job to keep the money coming.

    Yeah but this is set in 2007.AJ isn't a regular anymore.Besides TNA is offering him a load.Joe is main event status in TNA so why would he leave?Daniels is also getting a hefty paycheck.Also Jericho is coming back to WWE soon( anybody?).Helms is injured.Mysterio and Hardy again are big names and wouldn't leave aswell.I could go on...but still I am waiting for your first show.

    EDIT : WTF No Bryan Danielson??????

    I planned on bringing Danielson later on..... Also..Like I said dude...this is no diff than an efed.... It's just how I'd like to see something..I mean for god sakes you are advertising Michaels vs Jarrett in a ladder match lol.

    If I wanted this to be set in real time I would have used the entire ROH roster and thrown them on Fox sports net, but I wanted to book ROH with the roster of MY dreams....Besides, I'll have the full back story with my results

    The official backstory:

    In late 2007 WWE finally reported a quarterly loss. With this loss, chaos erupted in the wrestling industry. WWE was forced to let go some of it's lower talent, and some of the more expensive stars. Among those who wwe let go were: Shane Helms, JBL, Cryme Time, Garrison Cade, Evan Bourne, Jimmy Wang, Chavo Guerrero and the shocking releases of Batista & CM Punk - The official reason for letting these superstars go were based on both parties agreeing to terms.. However the truth is they were unhappy and were both approached by TNA for larger deals.

    Rey Mysterio, Matt Hardy & Chris Jericho were reaching the ends of their contracts and refused to re-sign due to TNA's high offer.

    With all these large talents on the market, TNA wrestling swooped in hiring Batista, JBL, Cryme Time, Chavo, Wang and Cade to large contracts..Larger than they could afford, causing THEM to do some spring cleaning as well.

    TNA was forced to let go The Motor city machine guns (Shelley and Sabin), Sonjay Dutt, and Jimmy Rave

    The new talent taking over the spotlight created a barrier... The main event spot was given to Kurt Angle, Booker T, Batista, and even Jimmy Wang causing Joe and Styles to be lost on the shuffle... This caused them to leave TNA and head for the WWE, Christian Cage too was offered a contract by the wwe who decided to take the deal..

    This was until ROH made a counter offer, less pay but less work. The pay cut seemed worth the work load and Joe, Styles, Jericho, Cage & CM Punk made their ways to ROH!

    How could ROH afford to pay them?

    After ROH ran several PPV's in 2007 and a few in 2008 they were approached by the CW network who were looking for wrestling on their schedule by the time wwe smackdown leaves in September. With a wednesday timeslot needed to compete with the male audience who tunes in to Comedy Central this seemed to be the perfect time to strike.

    CW offered ROH the deal, giving them much needed cash to hire some of the stars that they once created.

    As the months went by and the stars came to ROH it seemed it was time to make a few debuts.

    Which brings us to tonight; ROH was finally making it's public debut since it left the market in May 2008.. 3 months later, and an entirely new roster to show..The only thing left is to ask... What will the fans say?


    OOC Note: All my matches will be written in spots of what's important. Such as:



    Wednesday - August 27, 2008

    Hero: Am I getting a world title match?

    Larry: Chris - just hang back and pay attention.... Tonight, I want to teach a few boys a lesson....

    WOW! Very very intresting federation. I would not have thought of doing something as in depth as this. Very nice graphics and layouts. it makes it really intresting to read and easy to follow. Maybe it would be better to sumarize the matches instead of just writing pointers.

    The show begins with Larry Sweeney and Chris Hero standing backstage in
    what seems to be a run down would be office. Sweeney takes the glasses off his face looking into the camera, and begins to speak.

    Sweeney: Last week, Joe managed to climb out of the wreckage I set up for him! He managed to climb out of the dust and smoke in one piece! And it still didn't mean a thing! AND IT WON'T MEAN A THING! Joe, you might have came out of that little handicap match alive..But tonight, I have a different match for you....Last man standing baby!

    Hero: And wait until you hear who you're going to be facing!

    Sweeney: YOU GOT TWO MORE APPONENTS JOE! BECAUSE THIS IS GOING TO BE A LAST MAN STANDING ELIMINATION RULES CONTEST! SAMOA JOE... AJ STYLES...AND CHRISTOPHER DANIELS! The match some call the greatest in TNA history..Will now become the greatest the super agent has ever come up with!

    Hero: Speaking of great matches...Last week The Briscoes sent out an open challenge to the kings of wrestling? Well let me tell you this...You can spend tonight in a tag match against Human Tornado and whoever the hell he managed to find for a tag partner...And at supercard of honor 4, on ppv... You can spend the night searching for what's left of your teeth on the mat

    Sweeney: The super agent sure knows how to book a show! And do you actually think it's over? No, you see..I announced on this week that the tournament for the gold begins tonight! And it does...

    Strong: So is this how it's going to be? You run away everytime we're supposed to fight?

    No, no you see..It's all about getting paid - and if I were to perform in front of 500 people in this dump I wouldn't be getting paid very well would I?

    ROH - IS ABOUT -

    Helms: ROH - IS ABOUT BECOMING A STAR...Something the sugar daddy already is..And don't worry Roderick..The match is booked - Supercard of Honor 4 - but don't fret Roderick.. I managed to get you an opponent for tonight - LAST MINUTE...

    Match Length: 6 mins 12 secs


    Backstage video segment: - Chris Jericho

    Jericho: All week long, my phone has been ringing off the hook... The
    typical crying fan response... Why? Why did you do it Chris? Aries won the
    match fair and square and you attacked him from behind.. Do you think I
    give a damn? I have an issue with Austin Aries on a very personal
    level..You see, when Chris Jericho was making his big return to the wwe
    last year..The only thing I heard about was Austin Aries headlining
    ROH...Fans would come up to me, and ask if I've ever faced Austin

    COME TO PERFECT THE ART AND WHAT HAPPENS? I'm being asked about some wrestler in a less hardcore version of ECW?? The bingohall champion is more important that Chris Jericho? Well Austin... At supercard of honor in 3
    weeks on pay per view... Were going to see who the real champion is...
    And I promise you Aries... When the referee is holding my arm into the air,
    as I stand over your limp..lifeless body..blood gushing from the top of
    our head as you reach deep within your soul in hopes to muster enough strength for one last breath...You're going to realize that you aren't the
    starr you thought you were.
