Sorry for hijacking your thread Robareid, so let's carry the discussion over here. I'll start with what I posted in Robs thread.

The only thing that I can think of that has improved is the website, and even that couldn't handle the log on volume during Border Wars.
One thing missing is Gabe's eye for talent. ROH presumably has more money in the coffers to have the pick of the indy litter, yet they're not finding the future stars like Gabe has and continues to do.
Plus, it feels like they've committed to the crew they have. It's nice for those guys, but the company would probably be better off committing to 10-12 guys and keeping slots open for fresh faces.
I just don't sense that they're actively searching for young talent like they have in the past. I know they have tryout camps and a school, yet it doesn't seem like they are quick to bring in guys who stand out elsewhere like they once were.
