It will be awesome to see where Cornette can take ROH with a national television audience. TNA is obviously doing a great job of killing itself, but maybe ROH could be a viable competitor to WWE on an old school ECW level.
I was at the show when they announced the sale. It's exciting that they will be on broadcast tv, but you have to realize that most of the stations owned by Sinclair Broadcast Group are middle-market cities and the times slots are mostly late-night/middle of the night on weekends. I am bummed that SBG doesn't own any Chicagoland affiliates so I will have to watch online. Also, I will be out of town for the first tv tapings this Saturday in Chicago, which sucks.
The tv show will almost definitely be light years better than TNA in every way. From an in-ring perspective it will also be better than WWE for the most part. Obviously the major thing lacking will be production value but given I love watching old ECW shows from 95/96, I couldn't give a shit about production values as long as the stuff in the ring is entertaining.
