ROH Circa '08 - Japanese & WWE Stars Before They Were Stars

Post by WOODMO » January 5th, 2017, 10:16 am

With all the hype over the Omega match, I ended up going through my old ROH photos from 9 years ago and figured it could be a fun flashback report. I will just throw up a bunch of pics of interest from back then.

:gottacatchthemall:

Kenny Omega himself after one of his first ROH shows. I really didn't even know who he was, just that he was valid and a newcomer.

Image

Takeshi Morishima who was one of my favorite workers from this ROH era. He is also a former 3x GHC Heavyweight Champion.

Image

Seth Rollins, or Tyler Black back then. I knew he would make it to WWE from the first time I saw him.

Image
Image

Daniel Bryan, or Bryan Danielson. I got a bunch with him, but these are probably my favorite two.

Image
Image

Hideo Itami, or KENTA. Another one of my favorites in ROH back then.
Image

Go Shiozaki who seems to be doing some good things in Pro Wrestling NOAH
Image

Austin Aries the same night he punched a fan ringside during an ROH show.
Image

Roderick Strong long before his NXT days.
Image

Katsuhiko Nakajima who is the current GHC World Heavyweight Champion.
Image

Naomichi Marufuji who was another one of my favorite workers from ROH back then.
Image

WCW and Japanese Alumni, Kensuke Sasaki and Akira Hokuto.
Image
Image

The American Wolves, Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards.
Image
Image

Nigel McGuinness back before he was a WWE commentator and cut his hair.

Damn, nice stuff. On a side note, I can actually remember seeing that Ultimate Warrior shirt at an MSG House Show (in fact, I think it was the Curtain Call show) in 1996 & buying it for my cousin.

Great pics! I see Rollins didn't smile in fan photos, even back in the day!

That was the night I brought an entire suitcase of merch to get signed into the ROH show and security didn't say a word, but they were giving people shit for digital cameras. Memories....
