Will this ROH crap ever end?
By Scott Keith on 23rd September 2022
I feel like I've been very patient, but I'm really getting tired of this bizarre ROH tumor on AEW programming. There isn't even a suggestion of a timeline of ROH splitting off to be its own entity. There's not even a storyline of an invasion. ROH is just there. That's it. As fans, we're supposed to just accept that there's now this dead indy brand that has thrown its ROH world title, TV title, Pure title, and Tag Team titles on AEW TV for no real reason.
It makes every title less meaningful and just screws up the logic of the storytelling. Where is Jericho in the pecking order as ROH World champion compared to the AEW World champion? Where is Samoe Joe as ROH TV champion compared to Wardlow as AEW TNT champion?
This just isn't working. Please end this. Let AEW just be AEW.
It wouldn't be so bad if Tony didn't also add the AEW All Atlantic title and Trios title and secondary women's title on top of recognizing the AAA titles and IWGP titles. But yes, they need to just make Rampage or Dark into an ROH show and offload the whole thing somewhere else. Even Meltzer in the new Observer is saying that TK is way overstretched and needs to get someone else to deal with the YouTube shows and Rampage at this point.
