** The ROH fan base had a reputation for open misogyny towards female wrestlers, the list of those actually received well by ROH crowds being a short one. SHIMMER didn't improve said reputation immediately, but did end up leaving ROH with audience who not only appreciate but ''demand'' women's matches. With fans complain when a women's match is free for anyone with internet access rather than on pay per view![[note]]Since anywhere from 1/10 to 1/2 of an ROH crowd is at a merchandise table during dark matches, especially those they know can be seen later. A subset of fans is willing to pay money to make other fans watch a certain way![[/note]]

* PeripheryDemographic
** It used to be a meme to take a picture of a crowd watching an ROH event and then try to find the lone woman in it, ala ''Where's Waldo''. The female minority did notice, however, and strove to make themselves seen and heard until it was {{discredited|meme}}.

** Everyone agrees Bobby Fish is a good wrestler and he has credentials no one can deny, but some people just find his work in the ring to be bland. On the microphone his {{hipster}} like {{trolling|creator}} is either amusing or just plain annoying.

* InternetBackdraft: Preston City had featured ROH a few times before, so its fans were not happy to see the second night of the ''Reach For The Sky'' tour was the same night as a PCW event.



** The same can be said about Wrestling/BryanDanielson, whose current "YES! YES!" catchphrase became a chant throughout the entire 10th Anniversary show in New York.

Added DiffLines:

** The introduction of the Six Man Belts. There have been faint cries for them since 2004, they came in 2016 after a year of much louder cries of 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 comparison's to New Japan's NEVER experiment.

* FandomRivalry: Used to be FriendlyFandoms with TNA till the first pullout and got more hostile which each subsequent pullout. Friendly with AJPW, NJPW, NOAH. 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. Very friendly with SHIMMER besides a fringe that has no interest in women's wrestling. All American Wrestling encourages its fans to be friendly towards ROH, as did Ring Warriors. ROH promoted this towards Pro Wrestling Guerrilla as well during its efforts to get wrestlers to accept more exclusive contracts, letting them keep PWG dates and telling fans it was a great company.

* FriendlyFandoms: Somewhat friendly with CZW, although there are a lot of fans of both promotions that can't stand the other. Friendlier with Chikara, while getting ROH crowds to rag on CZW isn't hard and Chikara fans do like to make jokes about ROH pretty much no one was happy to hear Kevin Steen put down Chikara on the mic and even Jim Cornette, who is very vocal about his hatred of cartoon wrestling, respects the Chikara regulars as wrestlers and professionals.

** Friendly with AJPW, NJPW, NOAH. CMLL fans are generally positive when talent bounces between it and ROH though they don't pay it as much attention and some have mixed feelings about wrestlers associated with ROH also popping up in CMLL's main rival, AAA.

* DudeNotFunny: The Briscoes have always projected the 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.
