  1. ThROH The Years is back with a supersized episode covering a supersized event. Matt and Trevor review ROH's Third Anniversary Celebration Part One. It's a show with a lot of stuff. The Foley/Joe saga ends. A great cage match. The mystery of Vordell Walker. Ebestus Jack. Tonight is the night you've been waiting for! https://redcircle.com/shows/throh-the-years
  2. ThROH The Years kicks off it's coverage of 2005 and it all begins with a show called, well, It All Begins. Samoa Joe and Mick Foley have a physical confrontation. Austin Aries' title reign begins. Danielson and Homicide start their best of five series. Everyone is injured. All this and more as Joe Gagne is in our Thunderdome. https://redcircle.com/shows/throh-the-years
  3. ThROH The Years follows up a supersized episode with an even larger one, because not only do we cover Final Battle 2004, we do our third annual ROH end of year rundown. That means we put a bow on Samoa Joe's amazing title reign, as well as Steamboat's year with the company. We give awards, we give overall thoughts, we lose our voices, we lose our minds. Thanks to everyone for supporting us through three years of ROH. Here's to three more! https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/throh-the-years-episode-55-final-battle-2004
  4. Hey! ThROH The Years now has it's own podcast feed all over the place, although we're still also on the PWO podcast network. Oh, and a new four hour episode: This is one of the biggest episodes in ThROH The Years history. All Star Extravaganza 2. That means Joe vs. Punk, a match that makes Trevor feel human emotion. That means Jim Cornette vs. Bobby Heenan. Matt and Trevor also finally break down and rant about Dave Meltzer quotes like every other wrestling podcast ever. Plus Splash Cannonball, Jerk Jackson and so so so much more. https://redcircle.com/shows/throh-the-years/ Or iTunes or a bunch of places!
  5. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...hunder-night-2 ThROH The Years wraps ROH's big Weekend of Thunder doubleshot. We cover another Liger dream match, a possible plant planting one on Nigel, a divisive No DQ match and one of the scarier injuries in ROH history.
  6. Haha, honestly at this point I'm almost numb to it. ROH's treatment of women, not boobs. Well, maybe I'm numb to boobs. I'm numb to a lot of things!
  7. ThROH The Years is back! Joe Gagne is back! Jushin Liger is back...in the US! We cover Weekend of Thunder Night One, a show with a loaded second half topped off by Liger vs. Danielson. We also gab about ref shoot interviews, travel distances, and an apology is made to Joe's wife. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...hunder-night-1
  8. Joe vs. Punk II. On episode 51 of ThROH The Years Matt and Trevor cover the most important match in the first three years of ROH. In one of our most detailed reviews ever we cover the story behind the match, our own thoughts, and the reactions from wrestling media. We also cover the rest of the show too, because we're nice like that. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...joe-vs-punk-ii
  9. ThROH The Years and ROH both turn 50 in an episode where we cover ROH Gold, a B-Show with a lot of little interesting stories and a Homicide/CM Punk match that both bangs and slaps. We also cover Problematic Chad Collyer, Woke Gabe, and threatening to tell Ricky Steamboat about what you did. Thanks for all the support for fifty episodes! https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...de-50-roh-gold
  10. ThROH The Years soldiers on with a review of the Midnight Express Reunion show. It features Samoa Joe vs. Bryan Danielson, breakout performances for Jay Lethal and Nigel McGuinness, and Ricky Morton being a great heel. Also, Matt sings. Also, there are literal fireworks before the main event. On the podcast, not the event. Also: The Panther. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...xpress-reunion
  11. ThROH The Years is back during troubled times. We address what's been going on in the world and then review Glory By Honor 3, a show featuring the debut of Mick Foley, the return of Steve Corino, dream matches that underachieve, other matches than overachieve, and a hippy concert playing in the background! We also take a break in the middle of the show to talk about how crazy the 2004 IWA-MS TPI tournament was. Stay strong. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingo...ory-by-honor-3
  12. ThROH The Years keeps its hot streak going covering Scramble Cage Melee with Joe Gagne! Homicide, CM Punk and Samoa Joe battle for a meaningless privilege, an insane cage match happens, a title changes hands, and Mark Nulty says a lot of things. Grab a piece of chain link and shake, you're about to be entertained. https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/throh-the-years-episode-47-scramble-cage-melee
  13. I would normally doubt a story like the "We were going to try a nearly three hour match" one, except for the fact that Danielson seems like one of the more honest guys in wrestling and the story isn't one that really serves a point in making up. I can only assume if they had gone through with it the show would've been a double DVD release, as ROH would occasionally do. The show clearly wasn't booked with a three-hour match in mind, but unless it's a one match show, I don't know how you can book with a three-hour match in mind. There were definitely more edits to the undercard than normal to make things fit, but it didn't seem like an obscene amount of edits. Some entrances cut, a few minutes out of an undercard match, and the already short Joe/Acid match clipped down to a minute or two of highlights. Based on that, it feels like Gabe was likely already budgeting for Aries/Danielson to go longer than the average ROH main event, but obviously not as long as the match ended up being. As for the crowd, I never thought they lost them either, but sometimes things play differently on tape than they do live. I know live reports said a few fans, not many, but a few, left, and I think the report sent into the Observer mentioning the murmuring of fan conversations. That quote Gabe gave about thinking the only way a three hour match could work would be in front of a small, invite-only crowd of your hardest core fans came after the 76 minute match took place, so however the crowd was live, it clearly didn't convince Gabe that they could've pulled it off. I think I liked the Danielson dive knockout spot more than most, or at the very least, didn't dislike it as much as Matt and others did. The only thing that really bugged me about it was between Aries arguing with the ref to do something about a KOed Danielson and the commentary basically agreeing that the match should be stopped, it did create a brief weird vibe where you've got Danielson selling like he's dead, and everyone else but the ref basically saying "What the fuck is the ref doing?"
  14. ThROH The Years is going to go the distance by reviewing Testing The Limit, a show featuring a marathon 76 minute Aries/Danielson match that puts Matt and Trevor's voices to their own test. In our longest match review to date, we cover this bout from so many angles, you're going to think it's geometry class. Plus we cover the rest of the show too! https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/throh-the-years-episode-46-testing-the-limit
  15. Pandemics mean more pods! We're already back with a new ThROH The Years reviewing Death Before Dishonor 2, Part 2! An amazingly consistent show with a who's who of indie stars. Low Ki works heel! Cabana wrestles Joe for the title! Head magnets! And it is all topped off with one of the most violent matches in ROH history. There's no need to leave home when you have us to keep you company! https://soundcloud.com/prowrestlingonly/throh-the-years-episode-45-death-before-dishonor-2-night-2
