Note from Ryan Clark: The ROH staff and the security team at the Manhattan Center are some of the rudest people I've met in my life. ROH's head of security Zach Yeager is a complete asshole. I was so enraged last night (and still am today) that I am thinking of stopping all our coverage and promotion of ROH unless Zach himself or someone from ROH emails me so we can get the situation resolved. That's unlikely though.
