Once it's exposed more I know that ROH will become a pretty big company, not only that but it could potentially have a ratings war with TNA and then if they could they could feud with WWE but remember ROH is still a small company so right now with the little exposure there getting and the fact people still know what it is it's pretty amazing.

Simply just no unless TNA buys WWE out some how and this would result in TNA going out of buiessness due to the contract costs and atleast Billions of $ for it. Then everybody moves down to R.O.H an C.Z.W. But the answer is no

No. ROH is professional wrestling for professional wrestling fans. It gets the ratings and crowds that are normal for professional wrestling companies in the U.S.































The WWE is "sports entertainment", a parody that mocks and "melodramatizes" professional wrestling for people who wouldn't be caught dead watching professional wrestling, i.e. the mainstream audience. Vince even sneers at the "rasslin" those "other" companies do and laughs ("hyuk hyuk") at the fans of those "other" companies to show the mainstream audience that the WWE is NOT professional wrestling.































The vast majority of people are not professional wrestling fans (and never have been), but a substantial number of them get a kick out of Vince's Hollywood parody and it's ridiculous characters, overselling everything, and grade "Z" storylines.

Nope, ROH has been around for about ten years now, and hasn't gotten any bigger than a regional promotion. They simply don't have the financial resources to compete on a national level. They don't have the production values, and only a few guys on their roster are really marketable, they have had a number of talented wrestlers work for them over the years, but that talent inevitably gets snatched up by WWE or TNA. ROH simply doesn't have the money to keep promising talent on their roster, they cannot compete financially with two national promotions, and until they can, they will remain a regional promotion that generally has good wrestling, but lacks starpower, and a compelling storylines on TV ( since they are syndicated, it's common for their TV programming to be shown out of chronological order, thus making following storylines difficult, if not impossible)
