Ring of Honor gets something right, plans to create TV Title

TV Title

Get it? Because it's a title, and it's a little TV...

According to Prowrestling.net, Jim Cornette has announced via video that Ring of Honor will debut its newest championship, the ROH TV Title, by crowning a champion via tournament, to begin during the Feb. 5 and 6 TV tapings. You may not believe this, but Dusty and I talk about wrestling all the time, even when we aren’t recording the Stunt Granny Audio, and the brilliance of the gimmick of the NWA/WCW TV Title comes up a lot. The 10- or 15-minute time limits were great tools to keep heels over and keep belts on them without having them be pinned or do the pinning themselves. A TV Title can be a good proving ground to help determine if someone is worth being a belt-holder. And even better, ROH has a TV show, so the TV champion can defend his belt there but not at house shows (and could even lose to potential challengers), while the ROH World Title can remain the headlining match at arena events. A good move by a stale company. -Eric

One Slap, SALAD!

Ok, so this has nothing to do with wrestling and Eric will inevitably take this down and scold me but this has to be seen by as many people as possible. This is the greatest invention I have ever seen and really, why wouldn’t I trust this guy and buy at least forty-five of these? Vince ShamWow or whatever his last name is a tremendous pitchman and would make a fine addition to TNA or at the very least ROH as a manager. No one can like this guy so he would make a wonderful heel manager for the likes of, well, anyone in ROH. He would be especially useful as a manger for Abyss in TNA. Imagine Abyss gets tossed through a stained glass window in the next Hallowed ground barbwire exploding pulpit match. As he slumps in a pool of his own sweat and blood, Vince comes over with the ShamWow and magically he stops bleeding. He then hands Abyss a Slap Chop and Abyss dices up his opponents forehead enabling him to hit the blackhole slam for the victory. Consider it a modern day cheese grater to the forehead and also a reason to watch an actual Abyss match. -Jeremy
