If Steen doesn't leave with the belt, ROH is making a major mistake. I understand wanting to wait, but it's a mistake. Do it in Toronto. Do the double turn and do the rematch in NY.


If anything, break this obnoxious cycle of every ROH title change happening in New York.

I think they will have him win, isn't there some kind of stipulation involving Steen and the title?

The way I see it going down, is Steen wins with the Package Piledriver. They celebrate he won in Canada but out comes Cornette who says he banned the move (which he did (I remember that from a whileee back) though I'm not sure he's removed the ban) and reverses the decision giving the title back to Richards and Steen of course gets pissed and Package Piledrives Cornette and they send the crowd home happy in Canada.

Cornette then decides to punish Steen but not by firing him rather making sure Richards gets a fair shot of kicking Steen's ass for him in a Steel Cage or something but warns Steen if he uses the Package Piledriver again he's fired and at NY Steen wins (without the PP) and voila everyone's happy.

I know I would do it that way and be happy myself.

They should put the belt on Steen, striking while the iron's hot and that. Plus who else is left on the roster for Davey to defend against? Charlie Haas?

The thing is, I just can't see it happening. The whole build has reeked so strongly of a screwjob double-turn that a fuck finish is pretty much inevitable.

On the other hand... it was hinted super-heavily that an EEEE heel turn was a sure thing at FB 2011, and that amounted to pretty much fuck all in the end. Maybe they're pulling another red herring and booking Steen to win? (The fantasy booker in me says á la Punk/Cena MITB, with Cornette inadvertently fucking things up for Davey)

The Package Piledriver is legal in this match.

Dear ROH fans, We deeply apologize again for issues with our website. Unfortunately in trying to bring our fans the best experience through our website, with a single login and ringside discounts, there are still some kinks to work out. All of our pre-tests were successful as of 5pm today and we were blindsided by these problems... Please bear with us as we try to get it up as soon as possible. The production is going well and the replay will also be available as soon as we can get it up. For all those that purchased the PPV, we WILL resolve ALL concerns and issues

So what will they do?

It took them an hour to issue that message. Completely unacceptable.

For starters I suggest they take a course in customer service.

Agreed. Honestly, for all those who tried to order it and couldn't, the show should be re-shown and made free.

According to their latest apology it will be. As well as Best In The World.

Their have give their offer


Dear Fans, Again we are extremely frustrated by the ippv result tonight and offer our deepest apologies. Since Showdown in the Sun, we have been working endlessly to provide an optimal ppv experience which we believe we have achieved.. For our website, we increased our server memory x3 and doubled its processing power. Still, it seems that our architecture could not handle the excessive user logins and we are left with a great stream that our fans can not see. If a refund is demanded, it WILL be given. Otherwise we would like to offer full retention of the replay for Border Wars as well as FREE access to the Best in the World PPV on June 24th for anyone who ordered Border Wars tonight. This will also include retention of the Best in the World PPV in your myPPV accounts. We WILL get this right no matter what it takes in time for Best in the World.

Congrats on Steen and Hass and Benjamin on their wins...

The ROH picture of the day is WGTT holding the titles. And it's out of focus. Somewhat ironic.

Wait till after they air the replay. There's no way that anyone managed to get a full stream.

True, I do hope someone manages to get a torrent after the replay airs as I want to see Steen beat Richards
