O'Ryan Marseglia are clearly and painfully dragging their matches down both nights. Why the hell did they bring those idiots and Cheeseburger instead of Tracy Williams, Mark Haskins, and Bandido?!

the guys didn't get their visas either to go there, that's at least what PCO explained was his case.

You already expressed your dislike on the other topic, but ROH is making a big deal about The Kingdom, I'm pretty sure Taven is winning and that comes with getting the lackeys everywhere.

Cheeseburger, we been asking the same forever. Japan loves him for some reason.

He can have lackeys, but this is ROH! They should be guys who don't drag down the card. My initial thought on seeing Tanahashi and Okada's matches for an interpromotional show should not be "why are they wasting Tanahashi and Okada in a match with these losers?!"

The problem isn't that O'Ryan and Marseglia are undercard guys. The problem is that they SUCK and shouldn't even be in the company, never mind in the MAIN EVENT facing off against OKADA AND TANAHASHI in one of those two's rare appearances in ROH.
