Downloaded ROH New Horizons via BitTorrent. (I'll be buying it in about three weeks when it's available, don't worry.)

God damn the Bryan Danielson/Tyler Black match is gross. And I'm like ten minutes in. The amount of ways that Tyler gets bent around and twisted up and stomped on various pressured joints...I've had to pause the thing like three times already just from the need to go "EURGHHHH!" without missing anything.

Five star fucking match already, btw.

Mmm. It doesn't seem like the AOTF(Jimmy)/Aries thing is over yet. (Of course, no word from either camp/any live shows since Steel Cage Warfare, so I could be mistaken.) And unless they somehow draw on one to feed the other, I can't see both storylines happening over the same period.

I totally agree on Tyler coming out the face at the end of the AOTF. He's basically a face already, just not when he's actively doing something with Jimmy or against Dragon & a couple other select top faces.

Another thing to kinda consider is, and what the ROH messageboard has started jumping all over: Tyler's win loss record. The last couple of matches he's won have been tags, and while I'm not a hundred percent positive on this, he's not won a singles match (or at least not a high profile one) in AGES. 'Cause I'm sure I'd hear about it if he did. I'm now thinking of the end of '04 with Aries - whilst he did lose against Dragon he finally managed to pull it out and then head successfully along the road to Final Battle. I wasn't a diehard back then but I'm fairly sure no-one expected that with any degree of certainty.

But the long winded point I'm trying to make is: Tyler's got to start doing a lot more than losing some really fucking sweet matches with the excellent opponents, he's got to start winning. And with the current stuff that's going on with the title - Dragon's beating all Nigel's defeated opponents on PPV - Nigel's not going to lose that to anyone until Dragon gets his rematch. Which is, I think, at least three or four PPVs down the line.

I don't know if it'll really take as long as I think, but I have a feeling Tyler's title shots are going to be very sparsely given; if only so you and I and every other ROH fan counts down the days to a new champ with a huge degree of certainty. And then Gabe will yank the carpet out from under us at least once before giving us what we want.
