– Ring of Honor wants to thank all of the fans who attended our “11th Anniversary” and TV Taping in Chicago Ridge last Saturday and Sunday. The reviews have been outstanding and we appreciate the great feedback! While the “11th Anniversary” proved to be a memorable birthday for ROH, it was certainly not so in a positive fashion. Titles changed hands in two top-shelf bouts but the chaos that took place following the main event is what shook the foundation of honor. S.C.U.M has waged war on honor! The replay of this must-see event is available for On Demand viewing.
– After the chaos that was unleashed upon Ring of Honor by Steve Corino & S.C.U.M at the “11th Anniversary Event” last Saturday night, ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness made a very firm stance the following afternoon during the ROH TV Tapings. Make sure you check out upcoming episodes to see just how ROH recovered from the onslaught.
– In McGuinness’ statement he announced that both Mark & Jay Briscoe will receive future ROH World Title shots! At “WAR” on March 30th in Asheville, North Carolina … Mark Briscoe will face Kevin Steen for the ROH World Title and on April 5th at the SOLD OUT “Supercard of Honor VII” live on iPPV… Jay Briscoe will face the ROH World Champion be it is his own brother or Kevin Steen!
– In addition to those two title matches, Nigel has also confirmed today that Adam Cole will receive a ROH World Title shot on Saturday, May 4 at “Border Wars 2013” in Toronto, Canada LIVE on iPPV!
– “Buzzsaw” BJ Whitmer is also in line to receive a future World Title shot and the date for that championship bout will be announced tomorrow right on ROHWrestling.com.
– Congratulations to the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions, reDRagon, Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly! Fish & O’Reilly defeated Jay & Mark Briscoe last Saturday at the “11th Anniversary” to become the 36th Tag Team Champions.
– Speaking of the tag team scene, it is really going to heat up at “WAR” in Asheville on March 30th when The American Wolves take on Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander!
– New H.O.T member Matt Taven shocked the wrestling world by defeating Adam Cole to become the NEW ROH World Television Champion last Saturday at the “11th Anniversary”! This outcome blindsided everyone, including Matt Hardy, and bookies raked in the cash. Truth Martini has latched onto Taven and claims that “the H.O.T will be too hot for TV!”
– Steve Corino will be issuing an official written statement regarding S.C.U.M very soon. While the goal of S.C.U.M is obvious, it is still a question as to what exactly motivated people like Rhett Titus, Jimmy Rave and Cliff Compton to join S.C.U.M. We assume that Matt Hardy has joined since he feels that he has been mistreated by ROH officials and Nigel McGuinness since joining ROH, but at this point everything is speculation.
– Nigel McGuinness is looking to sign “The Outlaw” Charlie Haas vs. his former partner Shelton Benjamin! It was inevitable that ROH officials would want this after what happened last week on ROH TV but Haas says that Shelton will never show his face in ROH again. “Shelton ain’t coming back, he is gone from ROH and he is a piece of s****” explained Haas. “No need to sign the f****** match. F***, if you want to see a good match sign me up for a cheeseburger eating contest.”
– “Supercard of Honor VII” is SOLD OUT but fans can still attend our TV Taping the next afternoon on April 6th as we move upstairs to The Grand Ballroom in NYC! Pick up your tickets HERE for our first TV Taping in NYC and be sure to catch “Supercard of Honor VII” LIVE on iPPV at ROHwrestling.com. These shows will be awesome!
– The newest DVD release to hit the ROH Store is “Nigel McGuinness: In It To Win It”! This 2-Disc DVD collection includes 19 complete matches from Nigel’s World & Pure Title championship reigns including title defenses against Austin Aries, Jerry Lynn, Naomichi Marufuji, and El Generico! Through two dominant title reigns, Nigel McGuinness etched out his position in the Ring of Honor history books through pain and sacrifice.
– On Saturday June 22nd and Sunday June 23rd, Ring of Honor returns to Baltimore and The Du Burns Arena for TWO huge live events! On the night of 6/22, for the very first time at The Du Burns Arena, ROH will present our biggest event of the summer, “Best in the World 2013” live on iPPV!
