ROH: A Night of Appreciation
April 27, 2002
Murphy Rec Center
We see the Carnage Crew (HC Loc and Tony DeVito) getting together. HC Loc is the ref who got abused by the Natural Born Sinners on the first show. All I know about Tony DeVito is the jobber work he did on WWF TV in the 1990s. Anyways, they beat up a couple of ring crew guys and laugh it up.
Elsewhere, Quiet Storm wants to stretch Brian XL because he doesn’t like him. When Brian calls Storm a beeyotch, Chris Divine asks him what his problem is. This is Ring of Honor heat, bro.
Outside the Murphy Rec Center, Christopher Street Connection (wearing Da Hit Squad t-shirts) try to take over Da Hit Squad’s duty to hype the crowd before the show. As soon as Da Hit Squad find out and catch them making out, they chase these gay dudes back to NYC. For some reason, Dan Maff starts quoting Roddy Piper lines at the CSC.
Back to the Quiet Storm situation, he goes and finds American Dragon to teach his partner one of those freaky-looking submissions. While Brian XL is still talking crap, Dragon comes up behind him and stretches him real good.
Over in the Puerto Rican locker room, Tony DeVito enters the room on Da Hit Squad and Boogalou. He threatens Boogalou and walks out.
In other places, the old man from the Pennsylvania State Athletic Commission appears again to give the guys some details about who will be watching them tonight. How could they possibly care less? Eddie Guerrero gets a round of applause. This will be his last night in ROH and he’s already the WWF IC champ. The old man gives Spanky a hard time for wearing headphones while he’s talking. Anyways, this is a night of appreciation for Eddie Guerrero.

ROH: The Era of Honor Begins
February 23, 2002
Murphy Rec Center
If the name didn’t give it away, this is the first-ever Ring of Honor show. The original idea was that ROH would take the best of the American independent wrestling scene and put them all onto a mega huge super show once a month. But it’s not going to be like all the other sportz entertainment bullcrap promotions that the mainstream companies have jammed down your throats for the past five years. ROH also refuses to give our fans the outdated insulting gimmicks that we saw from a decade ago. In fact, the wrestlers here must abide by a code of honor in order to remain in this promotion. What could go wrong, AMIRITE?
Before anything gets started, we see Da Hit Squad hyping ROH to the tour buses coming in from NYC and Boston.
Your hosts are Donnie B and Steve Corino.

TNA Final Resolution 2006
January 15, 2006
OH SNAP! My childhood hero is back in black again. THE STINGER! Was it a big mistake on TNA’s part? We’re about to find out. I still say they should’ve waited until Benoit’s contract was up and sign him instead. History proves that nostalgia is only cool until the high wears off.
Your hosts are Mike Tenay & Don West.
Against All Odds 2006
February 12, 2006
After only being involved in TNA for three months prior to this event, Christian Cage has already reached the top and will face off against the NWA World Heavyweight Champion, Jeff Jarrett, for the most respected title in wrestling. Will the “mid-card comedy act” prevail and achieve his goal, or will the “King of the Mountain” put Christian back in his place? Well, you’re about to find out because this is AGAINST ALL ODDS 2006!
Your hosts are Mike Tenay & Don West! We also have ring announcer David Penzer working tonight! SWEET!
We kick things off with “Earlier Today” segments like Christian Cage showing up to work in his Porsche and then switching over to Jeff Jarrett & Gail Kim pulling up in his Hummer. He pulls right up beside Coach D’Amore and Eric Young. Young is still freaking out about Sting not really being gone, so Jarrett calms him down. Seriously, why is he so scared? I don’t see Sting bothering with Eric Young of all people.
