Episode 133: Killer Instinct

9/22/2020
In late 2012, ROH returned to New Jersey for the first time in three years, but not to the Inman Sports Centre over in Edison where they called home for 4 years, rather off to Jersey All Pro country in Rahway! (Spoiler, it also marked the last time Ring of Honor would run the Garden State so does that mean they killed the town?) It's the heart of Kevin Steen's World Title run, SCUM holding two of the three championships, the evolution of wrestlers like Mike Bennett, Adam Cole, and Kyle...

Episode 132: Glory By Honor 7

9/15/2020
Lots of time spent at The Arena lately for the podcast, this time it is the first time since in 2006's ARENA WARFARE (available in the archives). ROH is bringing a cage, Hagadorn is breaking an arm, and there are belts aplenty being defended! We've got championships from NOAH, the NWA, FIP, and ROH all up for grabs in Philly. It was certainly a weird time in honorville as the booking of tenure of Gabe Sapolsky nears its end just over a month after this event. So we talk about Hagadorn...

Episode 131: Christopher Daniels 2002-2004 in ROH

9/8/2020
There are few men who exemplified the heart of and soul of a young Ring of Honor than the man who waged war on the Code of Honor. The leader of the Prophecy Christopher Daniels faced many tough battles in the early days of Ring of Honor. With Shane Hagadorn out on assignment Jeff and substitute host Alex ‘Sugarfoot’ Payne steps in to discuss the selfless veteran stewardship The Fallen Angel Christopher Daniels. Samoa Joe, Low Ki, Bryan Danielson, Xavier, Homicide and even CM Punk all former...

Episode 130: Fade to Black

9/1/2020
Out of 2006, off to 2010, and up to the GREATER BOSTON AREA, if you consider 45 minutes away from Boston the “area” that is (ROH certainly did). It's the debut in Plymouth, the first of three shows that went down at the venue over the next six months, and also probably the shortest event in ROH history as it clocks in at two hours and five minutes of DVD time! So we've got the merits of a 30 minute draw with a champion on his way out the door, justifying two heel teams having a first blood...

Episode 129: Arena Warfare

8/25/2020
Still 2006, but a few months earlier, and the ROH/CZW is in its infancy when ROH (following a forced building change) invaded their home turf at the New 2300 CZW Bingo Alhambra X3PW Hall. Notably absent are the Pure Champion Nigel McGuinness, Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli, Low Ki who was announced initially but fired/quit/whatever, and Jimmy Rave to name a few, but it didn't stop ROH from running way over! Why you may ask? When planes are late and airports a mystery, stallers gotta stall!...

Episode 128: The Bitter End

8/18/2020
The year was 2006, Ring of Honor was deep into Homicide's Road To The Title story arc, had abruptly turned Jim Cornette heel a few months earlier, and formed a little stable around him that no one really remembers. Here, ROH is back in Philly for the first time since Cage Of Death and bringing the legendary Corino/Homicide feud to a close with the return. Does it work, or does a law of diminishing returns apply? Plus racism and homophobia run rampant all over this show with multiple...

Episode 127: Night of the Grudges II

8/11/2020
Out of 2003, and onto the first show of the post-CM Punk era of Ring of Honor! And not only is it one event, fans got two shows that August 2005 day in New Jersey! Problem is, one of those shows has been utterly eradicated from history and there is no official video footage out there on any ROH release. You'll have to listen to hear more about where this footage may exist... As for the main show, well it is certainly one of the most infamous to oldhead fans, one in which word of mouth...

Episode 126: Beating the Odds

8/4/2020
An unintentional follow-up to last week's show, this week we tackle the infamous CLOCKWORK ORANGE HOUSE OF FUN CAGE MATCH THAT IS NOT HAIR VERSUS HAIR EVEN THOUGH IT WAS BOOKED THAT WAY BUT TNA HAD TO BE TNA.... We're also tackling THE FIELD OF HONOR (insert spooky noise here), Jeff thinks Clockwork Orange came out in the 2000's, we have a special guest drop in who was there live as a fan, we talk SWB and his value in 2003 in Boston, and how four top talent doesn't always mean the top match...

Episode 125: Death Before Dishonor

7/28/2020
Welcome back to 2003, it's been awhile we know, but this time you voted on it with our DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR poll on Twitter! It's the day that Jeff Hardy did NOT (if you believe commentary) draw the house of 1,200 people, but “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels did from “Japan”. It's the final day of Paul London, for a decade at least, before he heads off to WWE and makes Velocity THE program to watch! It's a crazily edited Weapons Match, a bloody Dog Collar match with more ECW tie-ins...

Episode 124: Bluegrass Brawl

7/21/2020
“Smoky Mountain of Honor” was once a phrase coined by Austin Aries in relation to Jim Cornette and Ring of Honor, and this is one event that certainly conveys that feel...or perhaps the Ohio Valley of Honor would be appropriate seeing as how we are at The Davis Arena for the event. The first night of a triple shot weekend with “HATE: CHAPTER II” and “SALVATION”, this one just feels...less than...for the first half of the event, but with the top two matches really kicks into the territory...

Episode 123: Escape From New York

7/14/2020
THE SUMMER OF PUNK ROLLS ON as ROH returns to NYC and The New Yorker Hotel (also apparently the 5th show in a row in either New York State or New Jersey)! Another hot, highly invested crowd, with three title matches for their entertainment, and some good old shenanigans (or murder) with Mick Foley! Jeff and Shane talk the Aries and Joe pairing, Punk making the new kids, the tag titles honoring the old ones, and Jade Chung. It's “ESCAPE FROM NEW YORK” on this week's episode, and it is...

Duration:01:58:38

Episode 122: Sign of Dishonor

7/7/2020
THE SUMMER OF PUNK IS UPON US! It kicked off at “DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR III” (available in the archives), and got into full swing with ROH's Long Island area debut! Between the WWE contract signing, the surprise arrival of Mick Foley, and an overall banger of a card (damn the top 3 matches are fire), it was a tremendous first impression on the market, and the crowd responded in kind. It's “SIGN OF DISHONOR” on this week's episode, and it is brought to you by Patreon.com/AnHonorablePod, and...

Episode 121: WrestleRave 2003

6/30/2020
Back to 2003 for this one, the era of terribly awful commentary and Special K, of CM Punk and Raven, of Samoa Joe and the early months of his epic title run. Plus we get some rave life, painful camera work, Trent Acid tearing it up with Homicide, AJ and Sabin and the NWA Title on an ROH show, and two surprise gems! It's “Wrestlerave '03” on this week's episode, and it is brought to you by Patreon.com/AnHonorablePod, and of course, the Creative Control Network presents the greatness to all...

Episode 120: Manhattan Mayhem III

6/23/2020
This one is a doozy; the day started with the news of Misawa's passing, then it was the night Ric Flair bailed on the company, Austin Aries won the belt for the second time, another night of burying Tyler Black in NYC, and some matches for the sake of matches. The two tag team matches on the show though...good stuff. So we talk about some stuff that went on behind the scenes with Flair, with the title change and how Tyler nearly got it before the fans became apathetic, office vs. locker...

Episode 119: Best in the World 2006

6/16/2020
FBC, today's episode is brought to you by those three letters...listen and you'll learn just why.During the Milestone Series of Spring 2006, ROH headed back to Basketball City for another show, the last one there thankfully, and it was headlined by a dream match that would STILL be a dream match if it happened 14 years later.On top of that classic, the SHIMMER four way blew away expectations, the CZW war escalated, Chris Daniels and Alex Shelley had a phenomenal match, and a whole lot more....
