I'm not saying this isn't all true. But I'm saying it's a little bit different from what I'm saying.
I'm sure everybody liked working at ROH, probably because it paid better than most places, and the spotlight was bigger.
But did ROH use them better than other promotions those same guys were working for? Did ROH do anything for them besides give them a place to shine?
No. Not in my opinion. Aside from a few bright spots (I like the first PPV era.) I just think ROH had a good production. YOu know who else has a lot of fans and a good production and has an absolute shit product? The WWE.
I propose that it ain't a what if. I propose that CM Punk and others went to places and did what wrestlers do. Told INteresting stories.
More interesting than the ROH.
Not the case. Look at how great the WWE roster is. And the shows suck. Aside from a pay check I don't see what WWE is doing for their roster. From an artistic stand point, but also from a stand point of making wrestlers better.
Is Nakamura better in WWE? Than he was in NJPW?
Writing is more important in wrestling. IF we're talking about just putting on good matches, ROH did that. Sure. But a promotion that focuses entirely on that? Not my thing. NOt most people's thing.
