Ring of Honor Newswire for August 30.
– September 17th, 2011 is approaching and by now you realize that “Death Before Dishonor IX” is shaping up to be another ROH iPPV that you can’t afford to miss. The Manhattan Center in New York City will see a great lineup featuring 2 giant main events and a few first time ever bouts. We guarantee to bring you another incredible card that will have everyone talking. If for some reason you cannot be in NYC on 9/17 then be sure to join us LIVE on iPPV thanks to GoFightLive. http://www.gfl.tv/Events/Fight/Wrestling/Ring_of_Honor___Death_Before_Dishonor_I X/1146. Tickets for this giant event are available in the ROH Store right here: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=54.
– In “Death Before Dishonor IX” news, ROH officials have put a huge test in path of Steve Corino (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/the-biggest-test-of-steve-corinos-sobriety/). Corino will have to face down a man whose life he made a living hell throughout 2010, none other than “The Generic Luchador” El Generico. ROH officials and the locker room alike are very curious to see if Steve can stay the path in the face of El Generico.
– ROH officials agree that the Briscoe’s and the ANX need to move on from their feud and focus on the ultimate tag team prize currently held by Haas and Benjamin. Even though both teams want a Ladder War, officials are still very uneasy at holding such a dangerous match at such an important transitional time for ROH. ROH officials have a meeting on Wednesday regarding this and other matters. We should have more information regarding the stipulation soon.
– Announced yesterday (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/two-1st-time-ever-bouts-set-for-nyc/); since their debut in ROH at “Glory by Honor IX”, the current reigning ROH World Tag Champions, Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin have only battled once in singles bouts. At “Supercard of Honor XI” on May 21st, Haas entered into battle with Davey Richards while Shelton went one-on-one with Claudio Castagnoli. On Saturday night September 17th in New York City, live on iPPV for “Death Before Dishonor IX”, Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team will once again do battle in a pair of one-on-one contest! Charlie Haas will face “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and Shelton Benjamin will square off with “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett! This will be a big night for both Elgin and Bennett as both wrestlers are young, hungry and ready to prove they belong at the top of the card. A win over either member of “Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team” will obviously raise the stock of Elgin or Bennett and each man is confident they can win.
– We are excited to announce that our return to the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, IL on November 19, 2011 will be our tenth annual “Glory By Honor”!
