    With the Young Bucks, reDragon, Lethal, War Machine, Corino, Whitmer, Kenny King off-contract it's clear that times are a changin' in ROH.

    I just hope Delirious gets on board with these guys and looks to use them effectively. I'm not too concerned with Ospreay, he's already one of the biggest stars of the independents, but I'm concerned that Scurll could be lost in the shuffle.

    Oh, and it can't be forgotten that Cody Rhodes is coming to ROH starting with Final Battle. He has really been hyping up his opponent, so I am really curious to see who it will be.

    What's going on in ROH these days besides Cole/Kyle feud?

    Man, that's a good question I'll try and take a stab at it.

    The Young Bucks won the ROH tag titles in one of the most dangerous of the year at All Star Extravaganza VIII. After surviving The Addiction and the team of Cabana/Castle they're set to take on Dem Boys at Final Battle.

    CMLL star Dragon Lee has enjoyed a banner and the 21 year-old has the opportunity to cap it off in style when he takes on Bobby Fish for the ROH Television Champion. Fish himself has matured into one of the most consistent performers in all of Pro Wrestling, but he'll have his work cut-out against Lee who joined ROH at All Star Extravaganza VIII. With a shot at the ROH World Championship beckoning, one gets the feeling that Fish has his eyes on bigger prizes and the upset maybe on the cards.

    War Machine have been involved in the best feud of their relatively young careers as a unit against Keith Lee & Shane Taylor. Both teams have been involved in violent brawls and poor ol' Kevin Kelly got involved in the action at the second Survival of the Fittest show. Kelly was rendered unconcious after Hanson wiped him out with a tope, causing Alex Shelley to take over the reigns on their latest show. Lee and Taylor emerged victorious on the night, but one gets the feeling that after War Machine return from their gig in the World Tag League it will be on for young and old.

    The aforementioned team of Cabana/Castle didn't last long with Colt turning on his partner. No confirmation thus far but don't be surprised to see these two settle their differences at Final Battle.

    Speaking of Final Battle, we're set to see a brand new pair of belts as ROH debuts their own Six-Man Tag Team Championship, similar to that of NJPW. As such we've seen a bunch of teams like Titus, King & Coleman as well as the MCMG & Dijak team up.

    2016 Top Prospect winner Lio Rush has had a break-out year for the company and looks set to have a huge future in the company. The 22 year-old high flier pushed then ROH Champion Jay Lethal to the limit and nearly won the 2016 Survival of the Fittest tournament down in Texas. The company seems high on Rush, so expect to see him featured heavily heading into 2017.

    I've got a lot of catching up to do, but based on what I've seen/heard the product is in the best shape it's been in since 2010 when you had Steen-Generico tearing it up, Black making a name for himself and the Kings of Wrestling reigning supreme.

    PWInsider reports that Will Ospreay became a champion in his Ring of Honor debut. Ospreay beat Bobby Fish to win the ROH TV Championship at the company’s show in Liverpool, England.
    I guess there's no reason to ease him into the scene. Just push him right to the top.

    Arguably the most athletic wrestler on the face of the planet who can sell a beating.

    Check out:
    Will Ospreay vs KUSHIDA (4/10/16 NJPW Invasion Attack)
    Will Ospreay vs Ricochet (5/27/16 NJPW Best of the Super Juniors Day 6)
    Will Ospreay vs Ryusuke Taguchi (6/7/16 NJPW Best of the Super Juniors Final)

    I'll say it again. I'll say the same thing I've said for every TV champion.

    It better be Dalton Castle that beats him. Nothing against Marty Scurll, but come on ROH.

    Get through this Colt Cabana feud already.

    Will Ospreay vs Fenix (PWG Battle of Los Angeles Night 1)

    Will Ospreay's the man.

    It looks like my thoughts on this week's show was lost in the DELETION.

    Recapping, I enjoyed the opener between Rush & Gresham. Just two young wrestlers going at it, experimenting with spots and getting the crowd into it with a big finish. It wasn't always pretty, but ROH needs that fresh injection of blood and they could do something with these two. The less said about the MCMG post-match promo the better. I hate it when they have vets come out and put over the new generation, especially when they're not even involved in the segment. Unless it's apart of a future angle, it's best to let the work do the talking.

    Meanwhile the main event between the Addiction and the Briscoes felt a little more tried and true than the opener. The Briscoes seem to exist for their comeback, so it was Addiction in control for the bulk of the match before the inevitable hot-tag. You could accuse both teams of sleep-walking through the match, but there were enough well designed near-falls to make this worth while. The highlight was Kazarian catching Mark with a Flux Capacitor mid-DoomsDay Device. Despite the context of the match spoiling the outcome of the match, the crowd bought that as the finish and popped big when Mark kicked out. Kudos to both teams on that.

    The highlight of the show were the respective sit-down promos with O'Reilly and Cole. I've never been a huge admirer of Kyle's on the stick, but he cut an effective promo running down the history between the two and making some great points along the way. In comparison, Cole went with a more creative direction, detailing how much sacrifice he's had to make in order to be the best and how at the end of the day, the bitter life of being the champion isn't cut out for somebody like Kyle who has it all outside of the ring. It reminded me why Cole was so highly regarded, he's a hell of a promo and knows how to push buttons.

    I just saw Final battle. I thought he couldnt use Rhodes any more? They said Cody Rhodes like 80 times during the PPV. I was under the impression if its on TV/PPV Rhodes is a no go. Did he get his name back?

    Notice that they advertised the match as Cody v Jay Lethal? When it comes to advertisement, then he can only be marketed as Cody, but on live commentary they can say what they want.

    Of course the WWE legal department may beg to differ, but I doubt they'll be that petty. Just as long as they're not trying to draw more from their IP.

    Yeah I noticed the Cody graphic but was perplexed they were allowed to pull off the commentary. I figured it was all or nothing. Was hoping WWE stopped being babies and let the guy have his name

    If the Young Bucks segment at Final Battle wasn't enough of an indication, the pair signed a two-year extension to their ROH/NJPW deals.

    Their Bullet Club stablemate Adam Cole is yet to commit. As always, there's rumours floating around that he will sign with NXT in March.

    Nice coup for ROH, I'm genuinely excited for the upcoming Hardy Boyz vs Young Bucks match and wouldn't be against having the Young Bucks main event more shows and PPVs. The key will be developing teams around the Bucks and creating interesting angles to sell fans on.

    Pending on Cole's movements, I'd love to see him in a program with Castle. If he is headed to Florida, have him do the honours for Castle. Dalton is a star, and ROH are making a mistake by not executing on him while he's hot.
