ROH YEAR ONE ARCHIVE: A LOOK BACK AT RING OF HONOR'S INFANCY IN 2002

By Mike Johnson on 2004-12-21 11:00:00

When it comes to independent professional wrestling, perhaps no promotion has captured the imagination of diehard Internet fans over the past five years like the Philadelphia, PA-based Ring of Honor.

Basing itself on hard hitting, in-ring action, the ROH promotion has cultivated a very unique audience that has debated, enjoyed, and found themselves emotionally attached in a way to indy wrestling that has not been seen since the dawn of the original Extreme Championship Wrestling.

Through the course of it's evolution, Ring of Honoe has solidified many talented independent workers and turned them into bonafide stars to those fans, given legends a place to work and help younger stars learn, and most importantly of all, provided a learning ground for the stars of tomorrow to begin to test their mettle.

Indeed, The promotion has provided a launching pad for a number of stars on the national scene currently including Samoa Joe, CM Punk, Paul London, AJ Styles, Senshi, and Christopher Daniels, among others.

With ROH returning tonight to Philadelphia, PWInsider.com presents a special look back at ROH's first year, tracing ROH's earliest successess and setbacks as the company grows and evolves, as it was originally published.
