The Ring of Honor Newswire for August 4th
– We are a little over a week away from the Ring of Honor TV Tapings for the Sinclair Broadcast Group and to say that everyone is excited is an understatement. On Saturday, August 13th at the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, IL all of Ring of Honor’s top stars will be ready to show the world why we are the best professional wrestling in the world today. ROH will have a new look but all of the great professional wrestling you come to expect will be the same. The month of September will see the debut of the new Ring of Honor television program which will be syndicated across the Sinclair network of stations (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/list-of-markets-networks-and-timeslots-for-ring-of-honor/). September 24th, 2011 is the day that ROH begins a new era and become the only wrestling promotion in the United States with a major, multi-market presence on broadcast TV. If there is anyway you can be there live in the Windy City we assure you that it will be a live event you will never forget. Tickets for the 8/13 live TV Taping are available here, http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=201.
– Just signed for August 13th in Chicago Ridge, a tag team grudge match between Kyle O’Reilly & Adam Cole and The Bravado Brothers (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/tag-team-grudge-match-signed-for-chicago/)! Will Lancelot & Harlem back up their claims to be the best young tag team in ROH? Or will they suffer the same fate they did at “Tag Team Turmoil 2011”?
– ROH officials have now finalized their decision and on September 17, 2011 when Ring of Honor returns to New York City, the Grand Ballroom at the Manhattan Center will host “Death Before Dishonor IX”!

– We have received word from the Embassy that “Princess” Mia will not be in attendance on August 13th as she is currently in Japan training. Prince Nana has been flying back and forth to Japan constantly and has stated that when she returns by his side in ROH she will be even more beautiful and deadly. Nana said that he is confident in letting her step into an ROH ring and prove that she is the number one women’s athlete in wrestling today. “My frequent flyer miles are off the charts with all my trips to Japan!” said Prince Nana, “My Princess is looking her finest, and she is kicking the heads off of one person after another when she’s in that dojo. The Embassy is getting stronger every day my friends, and now that the American economy has been saved thanks, we will keep getting richer too. The future is so bright my friends, so bright…”
– “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett and his trainer Brutal Bob are more then ready for the August 13th TV tapings. “It’s about that time stupids.” Stated Bob, “Mike should be challenging for one of the ROH championships but regardless we are ready to show the world that with my guidance the Prodigy will be the biggest star in not only professional wrestling but all of television.”
