Twitter Talk: ROH and Destination America Edition
The big announcement this week was all about Ring Of Honor and their huge TV deal that they received from Destination America. What's really amazing about this whole deal, is the fact of how quiet the secret was kept. There was never any talk or hype at all about ROH getting a tv deal throughout the year. There was no talk of any meetings being discussed and no talks of ROH even looking for a tv deal.
After the announcement of ROH getting signed to a 26 week contract with Destination America, on Wednesday morning, I went to Twitter to kick off my new blog called "Twitter Talk".
After the huge announcement, I sent out tweets to everyone involved with Ring Of Honor, TNA Wrestling, backstage personnel that work for ROH and TNA, past ROH wrestlers that still have a huge bond with ROH, and even announcers and writers that have been apart of either ROH or TNA. Twitter being hit or miss most of the time, when trying to ask wrestlers questions, I surprisingly received more tweets back than what I was expecting.
So there you have it, Ring Of Honor wrestling is now apart of Destination America. TNA Wrestling will have to step up their game now in my opinion. If you listen to Taz and his Human Podcast Machine show, he made a great point. With ROH ahead of TNA on the tv guide, TNA is going to have to up their game, because ROH doesn't mess around when it comes to great wrestling. Could we see a ratings war between the two shows on the same channel? Which would be a first ever. Or is this a polite way of Destination America telling TNA they need to step up their game or they'll be run off the channel by ROH?
Only time will tell. Thanks for checking out Twitter Talk. I'll be back with my second edition soon.
