"And more"? That's a super stacked card, and there's going to be more?!?! You my friend are over the top, crazy! LoL
Looks like fun, looking forward to enjoying the ride!
Haha! You got it! Since nine matches actually took place on the first ROH show - The Era of Honor Begins - then nine matches will also take place on The Era of Pride & Glory Begins... This is a theme that I hope to keep running for the duration of this fed - as long as logistics allow.
Totally pleased that you're following along, my friend... Enjoy!

The thing with all the great names that FG has signed is if you want to, you can just build super show after super show if that's your desire.
This is what I'm thinking of doing. Super Show after super show! I really want to do a NWA system with the Indies.
In my opinion, it's the best way to tap all the great talent that FG has on the menu... As things progress, I plan to start up other indy feds to compliment this one - That way I can avoid bloating the roster.
That's basically my SIS...though of course....I like all the wrestlers too much to leave anyone out. Fun show to start, Pariah. Really looking forward to see where you go with it.
I've drawn a lot of inspiration from my fellow promoters throughout the years... And that is definitely the case here as well... Really want to give a shout out to bookerbill , who's playing and posting style is always an absolute treat to follow...
