The Ring of Honor Newswire for August 11th
– The first ever set of Ring of Honor TV Tapings for the Sinclair Broadcast Group is only days away! This Saturday will be here before you know it and all of the ROH wrestlers as well as the Sinclair Broadcasting Group staff are prepared to deliver an event that will have everyone talking. THIS Saturday, August 13th is the day ROH enters a new era and everyone at the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, IL will be apart of history. We encourage you to bring streamers for your favorite ROH stars and support professional wrestling at its finest. Expect a slick new look but all of the same hard hitting action that ROH provides. 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 becomes the only wrestling promotion in the United States with a major, multi-market presence on broadcast TV. It will all start soon!
