Here are some of the highlights from Gabe’s appearance on the show, provided by MNM listener & one of the moderator’s of the official Monday Night Mayhem Message Board, Daniel1991.
To kick off the interview, The Big Mosh & Blade asked Gabe how he would assess the first two PPV’s for Ring Of Honor so far: “Respect Is Earned” & “Driven.” Gabe says that he has been really happy with events, and that if anyone has not had a chance to check out he ROH product before, then now is the perfect time where you can jump right in, with “Man Up” heading your way on Pay-Per-View on November 30th.
Coming off the heels of the incident with The Age Of the Fall & The Briscoe Brothers, Mosh & Blade wondered if the decision was an easy or hard one to pull the footage from Pay-Per-View. How difficult of a decision was it for Ring Of Honor? Simply put, Gabe wants the company’s PPV’s to be something to watch with your family. The hardcore ROH fanbase will always be able to see more of the controversial events in Ring Of Honor on DVD releases.
Blade & Mosh asked Gabe for his thoughts about Takeshi Morishima, his time in Ring Of Honor so far, & his reign as the World Champion. Gabe simply defined Morishima’s time in the company as “awesome,” and that his best matches were against “The American Dragon” Bryan Danielson. One of their matches will air at “Man Up,” and the other wil air on the upcoming “Manhattan Mayhem II” DVD.
Despite what happened as part of WrestleFanFest in California, Gabe told Blade & Mosh that ROH is going to be careful of outside affiliations in the future, but that the fans who did show up were completely blown away at what they saw. Gabe went on about the future of ROH on the west coast…which you can hear in its entirety, by heading over to any of the portals of The Monday Night Mayhem Radio Network.
Reflecting back on the last year in ROH, The Big Mosh & Blade asked Gabe would he thinks were the best moments in ROH so far in 2007. Going on Pay-Per-View worldwide, Samoa Joe’s Farewell Tour (that ended in Liverpool, England) & Nigel McGuiness winning the Ring Of Honor World Heavyweight Championship would be up there, he said, in no particular order. Plenty of more great memories are sure to come in the final two months of ROH though…
The 30+ minute interview with Gabe also included his uncensored thoughts & takes on the continuation of the new ECW project, working with KayFabeCommentaries.com & their Guest Booker DVD Series, a medical update on current ROH World Heavyweight Champion, Nigel McGuiness, & much, much more. All Ring Of Honor fans around the world: this is a must-listen interview for you!
