Social Media Scene
Below is this week’s round-up of social media posts from ROH personalities.
Classic, I know 100 percent who is going to win ROH match
If I had a nickel for every time I’ve misplaced my melon baller, I swear I’d have roughly $3.

This is an odd way to title this type of match
Well Summer Supercard was more disappointing than I thought it would be, and I had low expectations. The Marty and PJ Black mask was a nice surprise. Of course the Briscoes and G.O.D match was a great bloodbath.
But the rest of the card felt like a rehash of the past four months, or worse. I was critical of the Alex Shelly move, not him coming back to ROH, that’s great. Just the hot shot of him getting a title shot. There was almost no build and you know a made guy like Taven is not going to drop his title to a guy who hasn’t wrestled in over a year. ROH is a lot of things, but it’s not WWE.
Overall the show was extremely forgetful. Like most ROH shows have been. But, past shows have had some really memorable moments to save the show. This card however just felt like a house shows with a death match at the end.
