** The Bullet Club were basically baby faces after the first ''Global Wars'' and ''War Of The Worlds'' events but headed into this territory after the 2016 ''Global Wars'', as pro ROH Styles and sympathetic Anderson were gone, with the rest of the group dedicated to making Adam Cole champion by any means necessary. But being Adam Cole and Bullet Club, they have to work extra hard to get booed. And even when the rest of Bullet Club started to remember why Cole had been there perennial enemy when Styles was around they didn't exactly scale back their shenanigans.

** QT Marshall had the size and promo style ROH bookers tend to gravitate towards but fan reactions to his ring work were tepid, so he was teamed up with RD Evans to help him overcome that hurdle. Fans instead focused on Evans and ignored Marshall.



** On the website the acceptance of rookie Lio Rush by the notorious crowds of Philadelphia was stated to be a relieving surprise. There were some grumblings when he got a world title shot at Jay Lethal but none in Dallas Texas, where the match took place...besides those [[FandomRivalry from the CZW show]].

** The introduction of the Six Man Belts. There have been faint cries for them since 2004 but they came in 2016, after a year of much louder cries for a WOH belt. Speculation around six man belts leaned toward them being tools to further shill Bullet Club The Elite, The Cabinet and or more CMLL guests, giving the broken bases of those topics something else to argue about, as well as drawing comparisons to New Japan's NEVER experiment. This all quieted down a bit, as it went to The Kingdom rather than the Club, The Cabinet became DarkerAndEdgier, CMLL's luchadors were received fairly well and they weren't the following champions, who turned out to be unlikely underdogs and unexpected contenders.

** The Briscoes have always enjoyed an image of slightly stupid vulgar country boys with backwards views about [[RefugeInAudacity drinking while operating motor vehicles, aggravated assault, gun play, promiscuity, masculinity, women in general and homosexuality]]. ROH has twice tried and given up on toning them down, sticking {{content warnings}} of [[SerialEscalation ever increasing length]] in front of their segments. Jay himself admitted he had gone too far in 2013 however, after tweeting that he'd shoot anyone who taught his kids gay marriage was okay, breaking kayfabe to publicly apologize and vowing to donate the money he'd be making during ''Dragon's Reign'' and ''Relentless'' to Partners Against Hate, which is dedicated to ensuring children grow up to be tolerant. It also probably had a lot to do with the ROH championship being vacated for the first and so far only time ever due to a storyline injury to Jay.

* Cody's debut didn't leave much impression on fans, and the purists remained largely apathetic as he was pushed ahead of up and comers(ex Lio Rush, Keith Lee), stronger technicians(ex Silas Young, Dalton Castle) and several foreign wrestlers interested in the World Title(no less than Hiroshi Tanahashi!) but Bullet Club fans came to adore him after he joined the group, to the point they drowned out cheers for ''Christopher Daniels'' with their Cody support.

* FandomRivalry: Used to be FriendlyFandoms with TNA till the first pullout and got more hostile which each subsequent pullout. Somewhat contentious with the WWN due to Gabe Sapolsky and who took over after ROH left but not too much due to the unsurprisingly similar styles even taking the Dragon Gate influences into account.

** Although Jay has regained popularity amongst most fans, the LGBT community still sees his retraction and "I was playing my character" excuse as a PR influenced non-apology. The general reaction when he won the title back 2 years later was absolute outrage.

** Unlike the previous Kingdom members, Vinny Maseglia and TK O'Ryan tend to emulate The Hardy Boys more in their ring gear than their choices in wrestling moves, but this just makes them a different kind of eyesore.



* OlderThanTheyThink: The ''Road To Final Battle Story Time With Adam Cole'' drew comparisons to Broken Matt's ''Bound For Glory'' promo, even though Cole had been doing his longer, plus the fact Adam and Matt were part of the same stable before their current affiliations so it made sense there would be some similarities in their {{villainous breakdown}}s when both also happened to be reflecting on their history. [[{{Foreshadowing}} And wouldn't you know]] Matt announced he was returning to "render" two of Cole's stablemates "obsolete".

** Rhett Titus got some during the 2016 ''Road To Best In The World'' and Kenny King had been getting some prior simply for coming back after the TNA incident, culminating at the cabinet's introduction promo going on so long it ate into the main event of the pay per view itself.

** "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett, simply thought to not be "good enough" for the promotion. ''Then'' he won the first "Top Prospect" Tournament. Add Matt Taven, the second "Top Prospect" Tournament winner to the equation and you get the Kingdom, one of the most hated stables in recent memory. Not even the awesomeness of [[EnsembleDarkhorse Adam Cole]] could save them from the vitriol of the [=RoHbots=]. Instead of downplaying the team, they started becoming more prominent, ripping off the [[Wrestling/MattHardy Hardy]] [[Wrestling/JeffHardy Boyz]] moves and even going to Japan and ''winning'' the [[Wrestling/NewJapanProWrestling IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships]]. [[InternetBackdraft Guess what the fan reaction was.]]

** Ring of Honor fans, [[IntendedAudienceReaction as expected]], were livid about Wrestling/KevinSullivan's involvement at the 2016 ''best in the world''. Where they break is whether his appearance is thematically appropriate or if the promotion would have been better off using a younger person in his place.
