– “Pretty Boy Pitbull” Kenny King has been vocal since the last edition of the ROH Videowire rolled out last week. “People keep coming up to me, “said King. “I saw what happened between you and Aries, this and that, blah blah. Man, people say where there’s smoke there’s fire, but those people don’t walk in our shoes. We the best of the best, the top of any heap, and at the top the pressure is multiplied a hundred-fold and sometimes emotion catches up. That’s it. ‘A-Double’ and I are tighter than ever, and when I win the World Title on Friday night he’ll support me just as I support him.” Can King take the next step in what experts contend could be a stellar wrestling career? Be there this Friday to see for yourself; as it’ll be ROH World Champion Tyler Black facing Kenny King in Dayton! To see what caused the controversy between he and Austin Aries in the Videowire, check out http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/april-14th-videowire/.
– “The Big Bang!” will surely be remembered as one of the top wrestling Pay-Per-View events of 2010. You can still see it unfold as it did LIVE in Charlotte, NC at GoFightLive.tv!! The mammoth World Title Triple Threat match and the must-see World Tag Team Championship war are reason enough to make your order today! Don’t wait for the DVD, check out http://www.gofightlive.tv/showEvent.do?eventId=625! And just announced last night, ROH iPPV returns on June 19th from the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto!!! Stay tuned to ROHWrestling.com for more on that!
– Signed for next set of ROH on HDNet National Television Tapings on May 21st and 22nd at the Arena in South Philadelphia: ROH World Tag Team Champion Chris Hero, ROH World Television Champion Eddie Edwards, Austin Aries, Davey Richards, and El Generico. Plus the Women of Honor return to HDNet with Rayna Von Tash, Jamilia Craft, Daizee Haze, and Sara del Rey (5/21 only) in action!
– Delirious hasn’t been heard from is quite some time, and the last contact anyone had with those close to him revealed an unconfirmed throat injury at the hands of Austin Aries that was suffered at the March ROH on HDNet Television Tapings in Philadelphia. Since then, Delirious has been missing from all ROH events and has been completely out of touch. In recent days, sources have indicated that Delirious has under gone some sort of transformation in the ring, with a mean streak that has never been seen in the masked lizard man. He has been competing in Japan for Pro Wrestling NOAH and has amassed an impressive 7-1 record on his tour, with a showdown with GHC Junior Heavyweight Champion Yoshinobu Kanemaru on tap for 4/25 at Sapporo Teisen Hall. Our sources also indicated that Delirious has reached out to ROH officials through Daizee Haze, and we hope to have more on that very soon in the Newswire.

– Roderick Strong has been awarded his one-on-one title match against whoever comes out of this weekend wearing ROH World Title gold. But his road to New York isn’t an easy one, with matches already signed against El Generico (this Friday in Dayton, OH) and Davey Richards (this Saturday in Chicago). It certainly appears that Strong is on a mission, as JUST SIGNED for May 7th in Manassas, VA, Strong will oppose a man that has taken him to his absolute limit in one of the biggest feuds in recent wrestling history. It’ll be Roderick Strong taking on Erick Stevens in Virginia!!! Stevens is a different man, with allegiances to Prince Nana and other wars on his mind, while Strong’s mental state has been questioned as of late by more than one. It looks like Roddy is stacking his own deck on the way to the Manhattan Center on May 8th. Will he have bitten off much too much before he even gets there? Get your tickets to see it happen now at ROHWrestling.com or call (215) 781-2500!!
