* LoveToHate: [=RohBots=] quickly took a special disliking to Jimmy Rave. If it was possible to be a cult ''un''favorite, it was him, and they delighted at his set backs and humiliations.

** Adam Cole's usually cheered whenever makes an appearance, no matter how overweight, underweight or unkempt he happens to be. But ever since the formation of The Kingdom the longer a match goes the more likely Cole is to get booed, but unlike the other three men who were associated with the group during his time in it a certain affection remains. Cole's loyalty and work are appreciated but at the same he does wrestle like an asshole to the point he becomes harder to root for the longer he does.

* FridgeBrilliance: The invading heel Knights of the Rising Dawn had a mission stance of being opposed to the idea that tenure longevity and company politics should override talent when it comes to who's the best for the job in ROH. Come the reveal of KRD's membership—The Addiction and Chris Sabin—it all starts to make sense. Christopher Daniels is a guy who's routinely traveled off and on between ROH and TNA, while Kazarian and Chris Sabin both sporadically appeared in ROH in the past but never as full-time members. ''Of course'' they don't want the company prioritizing tenure, that works against them. Furthermore, KRD's stance was the exact opposite from the Decade, another heel group. So why were they acting as heels instead of attacking the Decade? Well, this is where we remember that Daniels and Kazarian came back as faces ''before'' launching the KRD plot, and their first ROH feud as a tag team was against…the Decade.

** Jay Briscoe will forever be known as the person who once tweeted that he'd shoot anyone who told his kids gay marriage is OK. Both ROH and New Japan will similarly get scolded by LGBT fans and allies every time Jay gets pushed.

** Solo Darling was presented as another meal for Kelly Klein but was kept around when their match rapidly became one of the most viewed videos on ROH's youtube and the most popular WOH video by far.

* AudienceAlienatingPremise: Many long term fans were skeptical enough about a large corporation buying Ring Of Honor but the [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sinclair_Broadcast_Group Sinclair Broadcast Group]] was a turn off for other reasons, given how they've gobbled up stations around the US without a second thought, have used board-controlled shell companies to get around ownership regulations set by the FCC, aired lots of Republican-friendly political programming, acquired two large ABC station groups (Fisher of Seattle and Albritton of DC), cut their stations' budgets to the bone, and enacted a disastrous news-share concept for their stations in the mid-00s, among other things.

There's a ''reason'' they're called "The Heathens of Hunt Valley".



** As said, the Sinclair purchase was met with skepticism and has since lead to some changes people are not too thrilled with. Internet pay per view took the biggest hits once the Sinclair was in power due to their missteps, with attendance being a mixed bag. On the other hand, ROH had been in an unfavorable position since 2004 and the HD Net deal wasn't cutting it. Someone had to bite to prevent a significant downsizing or worse and thus some are thankful to Sinclair.

** Wrestling/{{Konnan}} and Wrestling/JeffHardy got it when they showed up. Wrestling/MattHardy has to work off a renewed round of it every time he shows up, though he usually ends up working it off.

** 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.

* 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".



** 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 a vocal fistful of fans whocomplain 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]]

** As soon as Jerry Lynn won the ROH World Championship, he got placed here.
** Matt Cross. ROH fans are known for their loyalty to alumns, Cross got pretty much none of it. Though he would partially redeem himself to some with his "Son of Havoc" gimmick he used as part of a trio [[Wrestling/LuchaUnderground elsewhere]].

** 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}}.
