    Does this mean ROH on DirecTV…if so…sweet…now the only question is will it be available on our current packages.

    It doesn’t even matter now if they are on TV. The product sucks now. It is so far from the glory days of ROH with Gabe. It is embarrassing and looks cheap as hell.

    Sinclair both saved and then killed ROH.

    You have no idea as to what are you are talking about? Since Cornette left the company everything has been excellent. You must not watch the product….it’s a damn good thing Gabe isn’t running the company now…he currently runs a spot fest with no story telling. At least ROH tells stories.
