Intergender (Clap, Clap, Clap Clap Clap).
For nearly six months, “The Maneater” Maria Manic destroyed everyone in her path, but Sunday night at #FinalBattleFallout, she was the one left lying as @bullyray5150 ambushed & chokeslammed her through a table.

I said everything that I would like to in this week’s Podcast of Honor, but, just to quickly recap…
I really enjoyed the show on Friday, and even though the ending was a little weird, I like the hard reset done with the roster. This show proved that the powers at ROH understand how disastrous 2019 has been in the eyes of the internet wrestling community.
Are these loud voices always correct? I say no. But, when you are scrolling on Twitter and Instagram, and the only thing you hear about ROH is negative, over a length of time this really hurts any brand’s image.
I hope this is the first step in the reclamation of ROH by the community.
