My thoughts on ROH's TV this week:

It's weird seeing Jay White on TV that's supposed to be the latest stuff from ROH knowing that he's now Switchblade Jay White in New Japan.

Shane Taylor as a face? This seems to be where ROH is going with him with his talking about the fact that he's doing things for his family last week and this week refusing to take the Dogs money to go after Cheeseburger. I think I prefer him as a heel, but we'll see how he does as a face.

Dalton Castle vs. Hangman Page was a good main event.

The Briscoe Brothers Heel turn was well done. They're both so popular though that I'm not sure how long this heel period for them will actually last.

I haven't seen anything of his Switchblade character yet, whats it supposed to be like?

Shane Taylor will become the Big Show of ROH, he's already using the KO Punch and will flip flop back and forth between heel/face for years to come lol.

As far as actual in-ring talent no Cody isn't the best ever but as far as pure character goes Cody is one of the greatest ROH Champions of them all. Love it every time he is on screen, on commentary, or doing anything right now.

Page vs Dalton was a very solid match!

I heard it might Allister Black which makes more sense. Eventually beating Black and getting the heat for giving him his first lost might be better for Cole who by the way I'm still not really sold on

The thing for me is that, when it comes to ROH and New Japan, in ring talent is the most important thing a wrestler brings. That's the main reason why I'm still not truly sold on Rhodes as ROH champion.

My thoughts on TakeOver: WarGames

After seeing Lars Sullivan beat Chris Hero and what has been done with Hero since his return to NXT, I have to question if it was actually good for Hero's career to return to the Fed.

I was surprised with how much more the crowd seemed to be behind the Velveteen Dream in his match against Aleister Black. I thought the cheering would be more even than it was. When that match was over I thought that the two of them may have stolen the show.

I'm happy to see Ember Moon take the NXT Women's Title. I think it was a good call.

I'm even happier that Andrade Almas Beat Drew McIntyre.

A WarGames cage should have a roof on top of it. :smt011

The way the Fed changed the order of entry for the wrestlers didn't improve the match in my opinion. I still enjoyed this WarGames as much as I've enjoyed any WarGames though. A WarGames will never be a match of the year candidate, but they've all been fun to watch.

You're right the changes didn't improve war games but I don't think it detracted from it either, imo

When Fish and O'Reilly were the first ones out of the cage and suddenly had a huge advantage I was thinking, "Well this is stupid." In that way I think it did take something away from the match. I think it would have been better to leave it at two teams the way all the other WarGames have been. Don't get me wrong though, I still thought it was good.
