The last time these two wrestlers battled at “Defy or Deny” they took each other to the limit and had a great contest that saw the former ROH World Champion come out on top.

– El Generico is ready to show the television world why he is the ROH TV champion when he faces Jay Lethal in Chicago. Generico has a difficult task ahead of him as Lethal is no stranger to wrestling on television and since returning to ROH he is 1-0.
– The NOAH 2011 Junior Heavyweight Tag League Tournament continued for Team ROH on 7/28 in Niigata when Eddie Edwards & Delirious defeated Katsuhiko Nakajima & Satoshi Kajiwara after Delirious pinned Kajiwarwa.

– Speaking of Pro Wrestling NOAH, the NOAH wrestlers are very pleased that negotiations are in the works for a select few to travel to the USA in 2012 to compete in ROH. Pro Wrestling NOAH has the best athletes in Japan and when both sides meet once again on American soil only good things can happen.
