– BREAKING NEWS: Davey Richards’ challenge to Roderick Strong has been answered. ROHWrestling.com obtained an email from Truth Martini late last night and it is official: Roderick Strong will face Davey Richards next Friday night in Philadelphia! Martini said in part, “Davey Richards knows not the truth, yet only his own selfish desires. A man who says his time draws near, rushing to try and obtain a goal that he’s failed at once already. Roderick has been to the dance as well, and after he saw the truth about the way ROH is governed has he become ready to take the next step. And it will be taken. Davey Richards? He cares only about himself, and that is the truth that will break his back.” Next Friday, July 16th, it’s Richards versus Strong in Philly! Both men turned in a classic 20-Minute draw in Chicago on April 24th. What will the outcome be with Roderick Strong’s guaranteed ROH World Title match at stake? Be there and find out! Tickets are available now!!!

– Sources indicated to ROHWrestling.com that ROH World Champion Tyler Black has been challenged to a bout for July 16th in Philadelphia as well. It is not known as of yet who has issued the challenge or whether a ROH World Title bout was requested. The only information we received was that the person making the challenge “feels like there is something to prove to everyone in Ring of Honor”. More to come.

– Speaking of Tyler Black, the Fight Network did a feature piece on the ROH World Champion. Black also sat down with Casey Carnage and talked about ROH’s Louisville, KY debut on July 22nd. Don’t forget, great general admission seats for the “Bluegrass Brawl” are going fast here. We expect this event to sell out; get your tickets while they last!!

– Sources close to Kevin Steen have indicated that he’s got something “very important” to say to Tyler Black before they tangle in Chicago. We’ll have more on that as it becomes available. In addition, Steve Corino commented: “The chains that have bound Steen to that disease, El Generico, must be broken. They must be broken to cleanse his soul. He’s so close, and soon it will be done.”

– Speaking of Steen, he’s signed for a Pick 6 Challenge match on Saturday, July 17th. It’ll be Steen putting his number three rank in the Pick 6 up against former ROH World Champion Jerry Lynn! Lynn is ready to climb that mountain again, and he’s chosen the maniacal Steen as his first step. Be there on July 17th to find out what happens! Don’t forget that the event that day has a special 4pm belltime. For ticket information, check out the ROH Store!!
