-->'''[[spoiler: Jacobs]]:''' For the past year, Steve Corino and I have been on a road to redemption. Trying to do what's right, trying to be good. And the whole way through, the man that was trying to stop us was Kevin Steen! But at Final Battle, when I drove that railroad spike into Kevin Steen's face and I froze...it wasn't because I was disgusted by what I did. It's because I'd been celibate for a year, and I finally had an orgasm! And in that moment, in that moment I realized being good isn't for me, uh-uh! I realized, in that moment, that the zombie princess Jimmy Jacobs ROSE FROM THE GRAVE! And Kevin Steen was ''right''; sometimes, [[TheBadGuyWins EVIL WINS]]."

** For those that did not immediately hate Age Of The Fall, the sight of Jimmy Jacobs in his nice white suit covered in blood was both awesome and surreal. Unfortunately, ROH didn't do much to capitalize on all the hype put into The Age Of The Fall afterward, and it became like an emo version of the [=nWo=] before dwindling down to three official members Jacobs, [=MsChif=], and [[Wrestling/LukeHarper Brodie Lee]].

** There are convincing arguments that both ROH and SHIMMER are in better financial positions since their relationship wound down. However, there was much {{internet back draft}} when ROH's female roster was [[TheSmurfettePrinciple reduced to one]]. ROH would take actions to address the resulting complaints, but those efforts are themselves subject of debate.
** The Top Prospect Tournament. Its purpose is obviously to showcase whom ROH thinks has the most future potential at the moment and some fans accept that, except that being presented as a wrestling tournament, other fans ignore this premise and just want to see who they consider the best wrestlers ''right now'' win, as seen in Matt Taven over [=TaDarius=] Thomas, Donovan Dijak over [=Will Ferrara=] and Lio Rush over Brian Fury.

** While Project 161 was greatly hyped and sold in a way that blurred kayfabe before the big reveal, Age Of The Fall seemed to devolve into just another "gothic" group that happened to wrestle while talking big about their agenda, decrying the health care situation in America. Part of the problem with ''that'' was that [=ROHbots=] seem more likely to be liberal (in the American political sense) so the crowd could ''agree'' with them.

* FanMyopia: There has been a strong case for dispute against Ring of Honor's status as North America's "third major promotion" for most of its existence. While there are no other major landmarks in the immediate 50 states, territorial companies such as WWC in Puerto Rico have demonstrated the ability to draw larger crowds and when WWC was in its downward spirals, it was largely due to those audiences moving over to the International Wrestling Association (The World Wrestling League, IWA's figurative successor, has also drawn impressively). Then there are Wrestling/{{CMLL}}, IWRG and Wrestling/{{AAA}} in Mexico. ROH does have a claim all the same (their championship belts have been defended in front comparable crowds in joint ventures and they have at times surpassed them in television distribution) just not an undisputed one.

* FandomRivalry[=\=]FriendlyFandoms: Used to be friendly with TNA till the first pullout. Somewhat friendly with Chikara and CZW mostly due to talent and venue overlap. 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 during its efforts to get wrestlers to accept more exclusive contracts, letting them keep PWG dates and telling fans it was a great company.

* PanderingToTheBase: The first three goals of Ring Of Honor upon its creation: replace ECW since it has no new videos to sell, find the best wrestlers in the world, pander to the hardcore wrestling fan. Not hardcore in the {{garbage wrestling}} sense but hardcore in that they miss the hour long bouts such as Wrestling/PedroMorales vs Wrestling/BrunoSammartino or Wrestling/JerryLawler vs Wrestling/HarleyRace, when ref bumps were still rare, when there was strict punishment of disqualifications, active enforcement of clean finishes, ability of wrestlers to see each other's recorded backstage misadventures and of course a pure wrestling championship belt. The only thing ROH lacked was a two out of three falls enforcement, it pandered to "purist" fans who wanted to see wrestling presented the way a plausible sport would. There is some deviation from this path though, thanks to crossover with the comedy oriented Wrestling/{{Chikara}} and the proud garbage wrestling CZW.

** Thirteen years after his run, Xavier was still the most maligned Ring Of Honor Champion. Part of it was by design. He was part of The Prophecy against the company and a dirty coward to boot. The other part was some fans finding his time in the promotion forgettable and wondering why he was given a title shot in the first place, much less cutting the ever popular Low Ki's reign so short. The fans not frustrated with the amount of time that went by without his face being beat in just found him boring.
