Mark Briscoe is looking for revenge...
Just reading the results, A New Dawn seems like a generally triumphant night for Mark Briscoe. First he defeated Silas Young in a one-on-one match and then went on to win the Honor Rumble thus earning a World Title match in the main event. Although he came up short as the very first challenger to new World Champion Adam Cole, Mark was no doubt impressive in his bid to bring the belt back to the family.
There is a story that just listing the wins & losses does not tell though...in this case how Silas Young reacted to his defeat that evening. After being pinned by Mark with a Sunset Flip, Young immediately attacked the multi-time tag team champion and only left when three ROH officials were at ringside. The "Last Real Man In Pro Wrestling" wasn't done there though! During the course of the Honor Rumble, Mark eliminated Silas from the match to which Young responded by dragging Mark out under the bottom rope and assaulting him on the floor.
Now, at the demand of Mark, ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness has signed a Grudge Match between Mark Briscoe and Silas Young for Glory by Honor XII on October 26th!

Adrenaline RUSH better be wary...
While they make their “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV debut this weekend, Eddie Kingston and former World Champion “The Notorious 187” Homicide will head to Chicago Ridge on October 26th!
Collectively known as Outlaw Inc, since their return to ROH at Manhattan Mayhem V, Homicide & Kingston have been doing "everything right" to get in Nigel's good graces. Their ultimate goal is obviously to earn a ROH World Tag Title shot and their focus since NYC has certainly been on the current champions reDRagon.
ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness was hesitant on signing off on Homicide & Kingston when Talent Scout Prince Nana presented them but the former head of The Embassy said that they had grown up. He promised Nigel that they will wear suits, shake hands, and will do whatever McGuinness wants. Technically...on paper...that is not a lie. Outlaw Inc. have been wearing shirts and ties, and creepy masks, and the pair are taking out those they feel are bad for ROH. In their minds they ARE helping Nigel and Ring of Honor!
Homicide made sure the announcer plugged the ROH merchandise and new DVD's last Saturday in Baltimore PLUS both men tweeted out pictures of them helping set up the ring! On Saturday they even watched the World Tag Title match between reDRagon and Lethal/Elgin from the crowd, cheering and booing alongside the ROH Faithful!
Will this "makeover" hold up? On 10/26 when ROH presents Glory by Honor XII at the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, we will see! That night Outlaw Inc. will go head-up with Adrenaline RUSH in tag team action! ACH & Tadarius Thomas have faced some seriously stiff competition during their tenure as a duo but they have never faced anyone as unpredictable as Kingston & Homicide. Will Inc get closer to their goal of earning a tag team title match or will RUSH bring that dream to an abrupt end? Be there live on October 26th to find out! Tickets on-sale now!
