The internet has made it extremely easy to learn about new wrestlers and find their work. If you’ve been reading the site lately, you’ll notice my love for wrestling magazines. Dating back to the late 90s to the early 2000s, I relied on magazines to learn about new wrestlers. One of the first wrestlers I remember learning about through the magazines was none other than the “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels. Read more
Ring of Honor returned with their third show on April 27th, 2002 titled A Night Of Appreciation. It was given that name as a way to honor Eddie Guerrero, who is on the show, since he is back in the WWF and won’t ever be back on the independents.
Eddie would be in the main event teaming with a rather popular Amazing Red to square off against the Maximo Brothers. The show also features the northeast debut of AJ Styles as he squares off against Low Ki.
Christopher Daniels, Bryan Danielson (Daniel Bryan), Spanky and Paul London also appear on the show.
Ring of Honor continues to grow and find their identity as they held their second show on March 30th, 2002 in Philadelphia, PA. The show is largely about Christopher Daniels, Low Ki and Bryan Danielson competing in a round robin challenge. Each man would wrestle twice on the show.
There isn’t a ROH Heavyweight Champion nor is there a ROH Tag Team Championship. Those will be introduced in July and in September, respectively.
November 7th, 2004 marked the first ever three hour live pay per view presented by Total Non-Stop Action. At the time, I had been a supporter of TNA having watched several of their weekly pay per view events during the 2002-2004 run. I would regularly come home from high school to watch their one hour program Impact aired on Fox Sports Net at 3pm. So, naturally I was quite interested in the pay per view and had to order it.
It’s the first show in ROH’s history and it features wrestlers such as Daniel Bryan, Christopher Daniels, Low Ki, Eddie Guerrero and Super Crazy. It also features several young names that would become ROH veterans and go onto bigger and better things.
I hadn’t been aware of ROH in February 2002 when the show happened, but soon enough I’d start to hear about the company and begin to check out their shows. This show features the rare independent appearance of Eddie Guerrero following his 2001 release from the WWE.
