This quote is hilarious on many levels. Cabana hasn't done as much as Kazarian has done in front of a mainstream audience, same for Danielson. Frankie has been on WWE TV for a month and got a good push when he was there, was on Comedy Central and had his name mentioned a few times, was on TNA for a year, appears in several nationaly sold DVDs for promotions like UPW. Cabana and Danielson haven't done as much to be exposed to a large amount of people. Ask any WWE mark at a WWE show if they know who is who and most likely they'll know more about Frankie than Colt or Danielson.
And ROH is hardly a giant.
Well, Perkins has wrestled in TNA which more people know than ROH. I'd say about 99% of ROH fans know about TNA but maybe 90% of TNA fans know about ROH.
This number is screwed up. Chances are every ROH fan knows about TNA, but there is no way 90% of the people who watch TNA know what ROH is. TNA lately has averaged about a million viewers. I highly doubt that around 900,000 people have heard about ROH, hell I doubt 100,000 people have heard about ROH. Now as for the Perkins argument.
Not only that, he also has wrestled in New Japan and CMLL. If only 5% of New Japan fans and 5% of CMLL fans know who Puma is then that adds a large number to his recognition. ROH is only a teeny-tiny percent of the wrestling market.
Not even. The numbers for New Japan have been dropping off, and he hasn't wrestled for in two years to my knowledge, and hasn't wrestled in CMLL for around three. Plus CMLL has atleast a hundred people on their roster, and TJ wasn't a star when he worked there. Chances are the people who have seen Perkins work in CMLL and NJPW don't even remember him, nor anyother person they saw on the same show as him sans the big names.
I'm so there...I'm looking forward to seeing what's next for the DYNASTY!!!
I hope they shit on your face.
This show looks good. I'm really bummed that Super Dragon wont be on the show, but Steen/Excalibur makes up for it. Plus I would like to see Cape Fear vs. Ronin and Koslov.
