Ring of Honor is still very much in a transition phase, as it is still working out it's issues with Sinclair and dealing with the departures of many of its top performers. The company is slowly being built up as they develop new talent that will hopefully stick soon enough.
From a talent standpoint, it actually reminds me quite a bit of how the WWF was in the mid-1990's. The company had lost an incredible amount of its stars in a 3-4 year span, and that by 1996 the company was really a shell of its former self. Young guys such as Steve Austin, the Rock and HHH were in their formative years getting ready for the main event while a few of the company stalwarts, Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart and the Undertaker held down the fort. In ROH, they suffered a litany of similar departures, so they are currently awaiting the development of some of their younger stars ( Michael Elgin, Jay Lethal and Adam Cole to name a few) while a few last holdovers like Kevin Steen, the American Wolves and the Briscoe's steady the ship. It will be interesting to see how the company develops in the future.
Lastly, a big problem with ROH is that there are a percentage of fans who would like to get into the company, but have no idea how/where to start. Thankfully, ROH has made that step very easy in the past few years. Simply follow them on Facebook or Twitter to read about all their upcoming news and events, as well as reading the news provided for you on Wrestling Inc. of course. To watch their weekly television show, simply go to rohwrestling.com and create a free account. They present a new, hour long episode every Thursday. I also recommend in investing in a DVD deal or two, since ROH is always selling DVD's for $5-$10 on their website.
Ring of Honor is a definite alternative to the larger companies, and the attention they put towards wrestling and their matches is really something that is unmatched in any company. If you are interested in something different, watching ROH is a great way to go.
