WWE Elimination Chamber 2018

Today, 12:50 PM

Tonight's card:

 

 


Kickoff  Match: The Club (Luke Gallows and Karl Anderson) vs The Miztourage (Curtis Axel and Bo Dallas)

WWE Raw Tag Team Championships: Titus Worldwide (Titus O’Neil and Apollo vs The Bar (Sheamus and Cesaro) ©

“Woken” Matt Hardy vs Bray Wyatt

Ronda Rousey’s WWE Raw Contract Signing

Nia Jax vs Asuka (if Nia Jax wins, she gets added to a Women’s Championship match at WrestleMania)

WWE Raw Women’s Championship Elimination Chamber Match: Mickie James vs Mandy Rose vs Sonya Deville vs Sasha Banks vs Bayley vs Alexa Bliss ©

Men’s Elimination Chamber Match (Winner Faces Brock Lesnar For The WWE Universal Championship at WrestleMania 34): The Miz (enters first) vs Elias (enters last) vs Finn Bálor vs John Cena vs Seth Rollins vs Braun Strowman vs Roman Reigns

 

 

Seems like a show that should have good matches but fairly predictable outcomes. The Road to Romanmania seems to be on a clear path (unless that guy in jail comes up with proof he sold stuff to him), and I suppose the only real suspense would be "they aren't stupid enough to have Nia end Asuka's streak, right?"


ROH announces details for their streaming service

03 February 2018 - 03:49 PM

From the WO site:

 


Though the launch date for it has yet to be revealed, Ring of Honor has announced some of the details for their HonorClub subscription service.

There will be two tiers for HonorClub, with there being a standard membership offered at $9.99 per month or $99.99 per year and an annual VIP subscription that costs $119.99 per year. The annual VIP membership includes all ROH pay-per-views, while the standard subscription offers a 50 percent discount for PPV purchases that are made digitally.

Both subscription options will include live streaming of "On Tour" events, plus access to ROH's television archive and the events that are made available in their on-demand library. Other benefits include access to ticket pre-sales and 15 percent off ROH-branded merchandise in their pro shop.

ROH noted that HonorClub's debut is "imminent." Current Ringside Members will have their subscriptions automatically converted to HonorClub ones until their membership expires.

The service will be available via computers and mobile devices through ROH's website at launch. ROH's announcement also says that HonorClub will be available through their "new ROH App on Android and iOS, and channels on Roku, Apple TV, and Android TV as a Beta version for select fans," with an official launch for those platforms coming soon.

 

 

That's.....actually not to bad. They aren't completely cutting their throats on PPVs like WWE did while beating them to the punch with different tiers.

Fire Pro World X New Japan

02 January 2018 - 10:05 PM

New Japan has been teasing a video game announcment at their fan fest today, and it turns out it's them teaming up with the Fire Pro World team for the PS4 release. There will be official edits/rings/aprons along with a NJPW based story mode. 


The 10,000 person crowd

28 November 2017 - 08:11 PM

So as backstory, someone asked Dave on Twitter if he felt ROH could draw 10,000 for a show. Dave replied probably not, and Cody Rhodes saw that and took as a challenge. He and the Young Bucks announced they plan to promote a show aimed to be the first non WWE show to have a crowd over 10,000 in the US since WCW died. 

 

Clearly as over as the Bullet Club is, they can probably pop the largest non WWE crowd in a while...but 10,000 sounds like a pretty ambitious goal unless they were able to get New Japan to send some big names. 

 

My other thought is I wonder if Cody and Daniel Bryan have something worked out. They've been working a program on Twitter for a while, Bryan clearly wants to return to wrestling, and if anything has a shot to draw a 10k crowd you'd think that would be one of the matches that would get in the ballpark.
