I predict zero buys. Seriously. How the f*ck are they going to even promote this PPV without half of the card being in, and most of the show being top New Japan names vs. ROH midcarders. I really hope no one buys this PPV, just to send ROH a message.

the worst thing is that under any other circumstances, i would love to see these matches, just not at a freaking Death Before Dishonor. This could be Honor Rising, Field of Honor, or whatever other non-canon show, but for 10 yrs I was told that DBD was 2nd or 3rd more important show for ROH, and now it's full of exhibition matches

And this is after they did the same thing for both Global Wars and the Anniversary Show. And it's not like these are even GOOD exhibition matches (the tag title match should be fine, though). It's not Kyle vs. Shibata. It's Shibata vs. f*cking Silas Young. It's not Okada vs. Cole, it's Okada vs. Dalton Castle. There is no suspense for this show at all.

Briscoes vs. Jay White & Lio Rush for the TV Tapings. I really hope White and Rush aren't a permanent team. This was the same mistake they've made with Cedric Alexander and TWICE with ACH that has caused them to go absolutely nowhere.

Also, apparently Mark Briscoe is challenging for the TV Title. That gives us seven matches so far, with the following talent announced but as of yet unassigned:
DONOVAN DIJAK W/ PRINCE NANA
LIO RUSH
KAMATAICHI
JAY WHITE
THE CABINET

I assume we'll wind up with something like Rush & White vs. Cabinet and Dijak vs. Kamaitachi. Both feel pretty lame.

I know Kyle, Sydal, ACH, and MCMG will be in Japan, but where are War Machine? Or Lee & Taylor? Or Cabana?

The giant black dudes (one of whom does a crazy dive over the top rope) who cost War Machine the tag titles in Columbus and have been feuding with them on TV since then.

Oh yeah yeah. Shane Taylor and Keith Lee, totally forgot they had debuted.

That 4 corner survival is definitely the best thing they could have done with those guys, that match should be awesome

Assuming they give it more than the eight minutes they always give these women's matches.
