Its one of the few /wwe/ memes that are actually funny, probably because it wasnt forced like 18+.
Some autist from wooo was in the /wwe/ general months ago and got baited and argued for 10 hours straight, and one of the many tidbits of his comedic autism was that ROH is an outlaw wrestling promotion. He then went further on to say that any promotion that isnt the top one is outlaw.
Outlaw wrestling and the accompanying fedora stuck from there and is used to describe any wrestling that isnt WWE.
variants include >outlaw karate for ROH and >outraw peruwresingu for NJPW

Outlaw's an old school term to indie, ROH isn't indie and hasn't been for over five years!
Shit. it was on national TV and had contracts for wrestlers WHEN the Steen/Generico match that kickstarted this shitposting happened!
IT DOESN'T. MAKE. SENSE.

Artistically?

Taker v. Shawn 1 at Wrestlemania 25. Simple story. Light v. Dark. Heaven v. Hell. Wrestlemania Streak v. Mr. Wrestlemania. The investment levels were off the charts.

Not to mention they both sell for eachother like a million bucks (but by no means overselling) and both can hold the rank for the the greatest "worker(s)" of all time. No doubt here.

Can only find some matches from Japan they had, sorry. ROH puts a lot of top quality Bryan & KENTA matches on YouTube but not that one against each other. I think it's on more ROH compilation DVDs than any other match in their history, they probably didn't want to give it away free too.
