    The increasing prominence of the Bucks and Bullet Club in ROH is one of the main things that drove me as a nearly 10-year-long fan and regular iPPV buyer away from the company. If that's what being "worked" results in, great for them.

    Apparently they do very well ippv buys and ticket sales. So it worked in the end. They lost a lot of die hard fans but seemed to have gained as many back. In fact probably more. Unless it's all a lie and they are tanking.

    Re: The Official Independent Wrestling Discussion Thread

    I really would be interested to see what kind of numbers ROH have been doing the past few years compared to their glory days so to speak. On WC or my twitter feed I see very little buzz about modern day ROH, but recent shows I've seen they do seem to have decent crowds that are super into the product. Sinclair must be giving them some decent money to nail down Bucks and Cody down to deals.

    BTE has actually made me respect the young bucks for the extra work they do growing their brand and having a really successful career outside of WWE. It's turned into a bit of a guilty pleasure. Cody doing the Independence Day speech did make me laugh in their invasion episode tbh.

    Gonna watch DBD now. I'll post my thoughts tomorrow.

    There's a lot of negative speculation about how well the company is doing based on their buzz being over. Remember last year when they were talking with WWE and everyone thought they were selling to Vince. lol

    In the end it was about them allowing WWe to use Steen/Owens footage.

    i do read articles on them when ever they pop up on my feed on facebook. FROM WHAT I HAVE READ(thats for you Nicky) they seem to be doing just fine. They arguably have some of the top acts in the indys. I do find they rely way to much on NJPW. But they still build talent. Though i don't actively watch the current products from any company, i wish them the best.

    Ring Of Honor rely way too much on CMLL and NJPW to draw for them. They had Cody and Suzuki in their main event and that at time neither were full time. Their midcard champion was KUSHIDA. That and booking is ROH's problem.

    I would imagine their TV deal has allowed for far more casual ROH fans to be created. However, it certainly feels as if the diehard smarks have given up on ROH years ago.

    I've probably watched the Video 4 or 5 times and Cody forgetting the date and saying a promo from months ago is so funny to me. Real recognizes real.

    They're the best tag team in the world. Of course they'd make those poppy things for them.

    They've also got one for Eva Marie. Must be a GOAT women wrestler.

    Eva Marie > The Young Bucks for sure. Her match with Bayley was more entertaining than anything the Bucks have done in a few years.

I can honestly say that I have never had anything I would call a bad blowjob, that wasn't a great experience but up until I started gushing blood I was having a great time!

    I had no idea they made those things for Trump and Eva Marie. It's most likely because I don't collect toys....

    I wouldn't say they're really toys, just fun pop culture things that are fun to collect. I mostly just stick to the wrestling related pops and I'm going to get The Bucks pops for sure, Kenny, Hangman, and Scurll would be cool too.

    Supposedly 2K asked Young Bucks to come in for motion capture after they received their cease and desist letter because so many fans created their likeness in the game. Kinda hilarious.

    According WON
