– We are only days away from “Death Before Dishonor IX” and the excitement is at a fever pitch! This Saturday promises to deliver a fantastic card of wrestling from ROH that you cannot afford to miss. The ROH faithful can always count on us to provide professional wrestling that you can be proud of and there is no better time then this Saturday to support us live on iPPV or joining us live in NYC at the Manhattan Center (tickets are very limited). This iPPV card is stacked from top to bottom and if that is not enough, there will be a FREE 30 minute pre-game show LIVE before the iPPV thanks to GoFightLive. Also to the benefit of those in attendance in NYC, prior to the start of the live event, the ROH faithful will have an opportunity to meet former ROH World Champion Eddie Edwards and current ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal during a special autograph signing! This meet & greet will start at approximately 6:15 PM, and special 8×10 photos will be available for purchase.

– Thank you to all of the ROH fans who have purchased tickets so far for Ring of Honor’s debut at the War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale, FL on Friday night March 30, 2012 and Saturday afternoon March 31st, 2012. We have already had a strong presale for this big weekend and we expect all of the tickets to go fast. Tickets are available at www.ticketmaster.com and expect talent lineups and matches to be announced in the upcoming weeks!
– Expect a new Video Wire tomorrow with comments from the ROH wrestlers going into “Death Before Dishonor IX.”
– It is now known that Jimmy Jacobs will substitute for Steve Corino at “Death Before Dishonor IX” against El Generico. ROH officials are aware of the outside concerns as well as the personal concerns and will allow Corino to go to Japan and avoid the match for now. However ROH officials want to make it clear to Steve Corino that the one on one match will inevitably happen and when it does he must be prepared or else face consequences. Corino must face the test against El Generico before he can move on with ROH or himself. The outside threat is of no concern to anybody outside of ROH security and staff. Security levels have recently been raised and if there is any sign of a threat the levels will be heighten to what is necessary.
