Five years ago on this date, Ring of Honor (ROH) jumped into the pay-per-view (PPV) game with Respect is Earned.

Headlined by a tag team bout pitting the team of Takeshi Morishima and Bryan Danielson taking on Nigel McGuinness and KENTA, the show represented the next step in the promotion's evolution.

The experiment would only last a couple of years as the market would support the product on conventional PPV. So ROH took to the monsterweb and began streaming their shows online.

Since then, the show's quality have been hit or miss while the stream's quality has usually been miss.

Tonight, they present Border Wars and for the first time, they'll be doing the streaming directly from their own website, ROHWrestling.com.

Until then, take a look at the trailer for Respect is Earned, right after the jump.
