What a cool story; good to see some positive ROH news.

What a great heel.


•Closing Commentary

This week, I would like to say, “Good job, ROH.” In recent weeks, ROH has signed another promising young talent, Flamita. They have also had some interesting people at live events. Danhausen @DanhausenAD is one of those interesting people.

Danhausen has a small but extremely loyal following on Twitter. He is pushing the boundaries on certain aspects of “comedy wrestling” on the indie scene. Taking a chance on someone like him is a good sign to me. It shows that someone at ROH has their finger on the pulse of the indie scene.

I hope similar strides are done with the women’s division as well as focusing on minority performers in the industry. If ROH could transition over the next year to be a hub for indie darlings, up-and-coming high level performers, and a real focus on women in wrestling, I believe that ROH would be in a great place and even have the ability to grow their audience.
