I know Sand said he was going to watch it, but I hope the rest of you guys either watched the ROH 15th Anniversary PPV event tonight or can catch it later.
GREAT event. Easily the best PPV from an American based promotion this year.
Really loved the main event between Christopher Daniels and Adam Cole. Daniels has long been a favorite of mine, so I was quite happy to see him FINALLY capture a world championship after some 24 years wrestling. I hate the chant, but he definitely deserves it.
I assume Adam Cole is on his way out. He'll be in WWE, but I think he'll have an extended stay in NJPW before gets there. Omega/Cole will be great when it happens in NJPW.
Really enjoyed the hell out of the Hardy's/Young Bucks/RPG Vice street fight too. Wild brawl. Shame Impact Wrestling management is being douchebags and wouldn't let the Hardy's do the Broken gimmick. Really fun match.
Lethal/Fish and Scurll/Rush were also really good matches.
Didn't care so much for the six man tag featuring Bully Ray teaming with the Briscoes. The match itself was fine, but that's not how to use Bully Ray. That was Bubba Ray Dudley doing his nostalgia act in WWE a year ago.
I'm sure you already saw it Stinger(and probably figured as much), but TK O'Ryan did break his leg on that moonsault to the outside last night.
For those that didn't watch, this was during The Kingdom vs Dalton Castle & The Boys 6-man tag team title match. O'Ryan did a spring board from the apron off the middle rope onto a couple of guys fighting outside, but hit his shins on the top of the guard rail and broke his left leg.
So according to a site called Pro Wrestling Sheet (not familiar with its credibility level or lack thereof) WWE has been in negotiations to buy ROH since last August.
While I'd be in favor of WWE working with indy feds and selling timeslots on the network, this would be awful IMO.... They have seriously learned nothing from the death of WCW. Being a monopoly makes things tougher than having stable competition, not that ROH is anywhere near WCW levels of competing, but this urge to be the only game in town is self-destructive, if true.

PWS is fairly credible. Believe it's ran by a guy who used to do wrestling stuff for TMZ.
Agreed, not a fan of any purchase. Would like to see them license the show to put on the Network, or even past ROH events/DVD's, but wouldn't want them to buy the promotion. Definitely want to see the Network grow to become a true wrestling network though, as it'd be a win-win for everyone.
