    The current weekly ep has always been free on the ROH app on Roku. Not sure how that translates to Honor Club or whatevs, all I gotta do is wait a few days for it to pop up

    I believe it's always free on their website and the FITE app as well, but maybe it has a day delay or something.

    ROH TV been free all this time?

    I probably wouldn't have been watching it anyways, but that's interesting to know. If they can keep up the quality of shows beyond this Pure Title tournament, that might actually be useful.

    Finlay/Romero from this week is good, the limb work gives them an out when they face Lethal next round.

    Sydal/Delirious was okay, sorta wish they moved more away from the mat wrestling stuff. I know it's a "Pure" tournament, but you can still show different styles adapting to the environment.

    The pre-match interviews are still great, added so much to Finlay/Romero that I didn't know about. Yehi/Silas should be good next week. Hoping beyond all hope Woods puts King out early too.

    Fred Yehi vs Silas Young is my favorite match of the tournament so far. Both interviews before the match were informative. Silas Young is under appreciated.

    Re: Ring Of Honor General Discussion Thread

    This week was another great show with great action. Two unique matchups, once again. Fred Yehi vs. Silas Young was a great technical battle, going hold for hold and counter for counter. Yehi picking up the win is huge and thankfully, it probably means he's here to stay. Woods vs. King was a little more traditional, as it's two guys who aren't necessarily classed as pure wrestlers but it was a more than solid match nonetheless. Once it got later in the match, with how close it was, I kinda figured it was gonna go to the judges. I like Kenny King's use of a closed fist being the difference maker, swaying the judges in Josh's favor.

    Liked both matches, both told good stories as well as wrestled well. Very solid episode of TV. Glad Woods got some shine, very weird hearing Kenny talked up as a 20 year vet.

    Williams/Taylor was great, they made Taylor look so strong in defeat.

    Black/Deppen was actually the best I've seen Black. Not a great showcase for Deppen if like me you've never seen him before though.

    I loved Rust vs Tracey as well. Real gritty style match and i hope ROH signs Taylor. I guess Tracey disbanded Lifeblood as well. Wonder what Haskins will have to say about that

    I was wondering how Black would do in a ground based style and he was awesome. His finisher is great too.

    Not sure if you follow ROH on Facebook, but they have Quinn talking with Tracey Williams after his win and he cut a great great promo. Im sure it will be part of the episode where he faces Yehi.

    Ive loved the tournament so far. All the matches used the ropes breaks differently. And really , I haven't seen a bad match yet. I guess Deppen vs Black was the weakest one but it wasn't bad at all. ROH approached this amazingly and they deserve credit for that. Everything comes off authentic. Every show had great outside the ring content to go with the in ring.

    So far best matches have been Yehi vs Young, Williams vs Taylor, Gresham vs Yuta and King vs Woods.

    Yehi/Williams is the clear standout match in round 2. Catch Point explodes ~!

    The best tournament in recent times continues. Tonight we got Lethal vs Finlay which should be pretty great. And then one of my most anticipated match ups in Gresham vs Sydal. Im expecting lethal and Gresham to advance. If you're not watching ...you're missing out

    Won't be watching until Thursday, but hope they at least entertain the idea of Finlay getting by Lethal to keep things interesting. Dunno though, as Finlay is still more of a New Japan guy.

    The show was really good. Lethal vs Finlay was pretty good. Sydal vs Gresham was awesome. Especially the finish. There was also a segment outside the tournament and it was good. All in All a great episode of wrestling

    I'll talk about this properly when I finish the first round, but Jesus Christ, the commercials ROH gets. I thought they only existed in American parodies of the 80s/90s. Crappy jingles, awkward business owners, "Wow! It's [athlete I've never heard of], what are you doing here?", terrible graphics. I know ROH hasn't really grown much since I stopped watching, but it's pretty sad they haven't attracted more desirable sponsors than the magic leg brace and dick pill ads I remember them having.

    They are pretty bad, but who watches commercials in 2020? You can just jump ahead lol

    However, im looking forward to your thoughts. How far are into the first round?

    Normally I would, but it's that "What the fuck am I looking at?" reaction to Crazy Joe's Snake Oil Giveaway.

    For your information, "The Big Hurt" Frank Thomas and his Nugenix ad are also aired during Raw and Smackdown in the US!
