– Thank you to everyone who attended “Manhattan Mayhem V” last Saturday night at The Hammerstein Ballroom. The World Title Tournament raged on, the tag team division continued to be quite unpredictable, and an ROH Legend made his return alongside one of the most in-demand talents in all of wrestling! Be sure to check this one out on VOD…. RIGHT NOW! That’s right “Manhattan Mayhem V” is available on VOD now by clicking HERE.
– The ROH Tag Team division is on fire! The most competitive tag team division in the world has proved to be the most unpredictable as well. Last Saturday reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) become the 40th World Tag Team Champions by defeating The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) when O’Reilly submitted Richards with an armbar! Edwards & Richards began their second World Tag Team Title reign by dethroning The Forever Hooligans on August 3rd at “All Star Extravaganza V” but that reign would prove nearly as short-lived as that of Alex & Rocky. The submission victory is certainly the biggest of Kyle O’Reilly’s career and marks the first time he was able to defeat his trainer and former mentor in an ROH ring.
– The World Title Tournament Semi-Finals and Finals are right around the corner on September 20th at “Death Before Dishonor XI” in Philadelphia. Click HERE for an updated look at the ROH World Championship Tournament brackets.
– The IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Champions The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) will be returning to ROH very soon. Their very impressive win over the Young Bucks at “Manhattan Mayhem V” is a match to go out of your way to see. ROH and New Japan Pro Wrestling are currently in negotiations pertaining to the current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Champions. Details soon!
– Prince Nana is back in a big way! It is now known that Prince Nana has been a part time ROH Talent Scout for the last few months and he has been reporting to Nigel McGuinness on a consistent basis. Nana’s trial run as a scout has been deemed successful and Nana has now been officially hired full time as an ROH Talent Scout!
– Nana is the driving force behind the return of Homicide and Eddie Kingston who made a major statement at “Manhattan Mayhem V” last Saturday. Homicide and Kingston are calling themselves Outlaw Inc. and have said that they are in ROH to take out those who deserves it. Word has it that Nigel was hesitant on signing off on Homicide & Kingston but Nana made a good case. Nigel knows that Homicide & Kingston are two of the best unsigned talents but with his mission to restore Honor he was nervous and he put them on a trial basis. Nigel will have comments on Outlaw Inc. very soon.
– RD Evans has told ROH officials that his broken finger as a result of Homicide’s “Code of Honor” has caused his quality of life to drastically drop. Evans claims that the injury has resulted in partial paralysis, trauma and an increased risk of getting mesothelioma.
– Silas Young and Adam Page put on a fantastic opening contest last Saturday at “Manhattan Mayhem V”. Both men are now scheduled for “Death Before Dishonor” weekend and they are certainly ones to watch for. Each wrestler has a great future ahead and should supply another layer of competition to the already stacked roster.
– Steve Corino, seemingly oblivious, attempted to insert himself into the commentary booth with Kevin Kelly and Prince Nana last Saturday but was escorted out by security.
