really great show - a lot of fun to watch - nothing to get angry about it - nice to see Daniels get his due.

yeah, enjoyed the show for sure. scurll v rush was one of my favorite matches, and the tag team three way was a lot of fun. romero with the sleeve was awesome! daniels winning was cool, curious to see where they go. i assume fish will get a high profile shot again soon after beating lethal.

And for once loved a swerve finish with Daniels and Kazarian. Almost a reverse swerve which was very cool. I enjoyed Lio Rush and the Villian. Never saw much of either but was very impressed.

Lio Rush is gone from ROH and signed with EVOLVE. They have lost so much talent the past 18 months, it's scary. They are probably no the 3rd promotion in the country now.

Not the 3rd? How are they even not the 2nd?  TNA is a trainwreck and Lucha Underground is having a tough year. There are no other major players in the market. They're still easily #2.  They've gotten a very nice pop from the Hardys and Bully Ray signings and are coming off of an excellent PPV. No one heard of Lio Rush a year ago and they'll just replace him with another indy talent looking for a break. Honestly they're a dime a dozen. The only really big loss they've suffererd recently was Kyle O'Reilly. That one hurt, but 90% of these guys are interchangeable.  Plus they get to bring in the top NJPW guys several times a year.

I would say that NJPW is passing them and EVOLVE is right on their heels also. If they continue to lose talent the way they are and fail to replace it with younger wrestlers, then things will go down hill even quicker. They have had a hard time selling tickets for house shows for the past 6-9 months and people are noticing. Just look at the top prospect tournament in terms of talent compared to other years. If you look at Gabe's roster compared to ROH's, I would take Gabe's 10 out of 10 times. They have recently signed the following in the past several months.Donovan DijakKeith LeeLio RushMichael Elgin
The only talent ROH has signed is Marty Scrull and he's on a short-term deal. Ospreay was basically only in due to the relationship with NJPW. I would say they are in danger of being behind EVOLVE and NJPW by the end of the Summer if things don't change.

I don't actively follow but I thought ROH was doing well under the watch of Sinclair.

Is Sinclair looking to do more long term or is their current model about as invested as they want to get?

There have been some backstage problems leading to the departures regarding talent and other personal. Kevin Kelly left due to this and there have been others who had been with ROH for 10+ years who left due to this. Many have said that it's Delirious ( booker), but apparently it's those like Joe Koff who's causing the issues.
