Ring of Honor Newswire for September 1st.
– Thank you to all the fans who came out to attend the live ROH events last weekend in Richmond, VA and Charlotte, NC! You fans made our debut in Richmond and our return to Charlotte well worth it, and we can’t wait to come back in early 2011. ROH will return to Richmond on January 14th, Charlotte on January 15th, and you can get your tickets for those events right here: http://www.rohwrestling.com/store.php?sec=cat&cat=30&page=2.
– And speaking of Richmond & Charlotte, check out Cary’s Corner (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/carys-corner/) for ROH President Cary Silkin’s thoughts on the recent live events last weekend.
– As officially announced earlier this week, ROH will return to Louisville, KY on December 9th & 10th for a round of “ROH on HDNet” TV Tapings! Tickets for this special “Two Nights Only” event will go on sale Thursday, September 2nd at 11AM at www.rohwrestling.com or by calling (215) 781-2500. Take a look here (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/ring-of-honor-national-tv-tapings-december-9th-10th-in-louisville/) for complete details on our Derby City return. When you order, keep in mind that these tickets are NOT discountable, nor can be included as part of any sales.
– As announced earlier, Prince Nana has pulled some strings and called in some debts with ROH officials to garner not one, but potentially two, shots at ROH World Television Champion Eddie Edwards. First Erick Stevens will step up to the plate in Roxbury, MA on September 10th and, should Stevens fail, Shawn Daivari will take a stab at dethroning ROH’s one and only TV Champ as part of the “Glory by Honor IX” event on 9/11/10 in NYC. For all the details on these match-ups, check out this article: http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/eddie-edwards-under-fire/.
– Announced in the article “Sickness” (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/sickness/), Steve Corino & Kevin Steen will take on The Embassy of Necro Butcher and Shawn Daivari in a First Blood Match. While definitely an odd pairing, this match was made at the behest of Corino to prepare for the NYC double chain match. Prince Nana offered the following statement, “This is the new beginning for The Embassy my friends. It’s all coming together and there is more coming soon. Just you wait…just you wait.”
– Charlie Haas spoke with Alex Marvez, http://www.scrippsnews.com/node/56107, regarding his upcoming match with The Kings of Wrestling at “Glory by Honor IX”. Check out what the former tag champion had to say about his return to independent wrestling, his thoughts on the WWE, life after wrestling, and the recent deaths of some of his close friends.
– In addition to Charlie Haas being in action at “Glory by Honor IX”, earlier today ROH officials announced the signing of an additional match for that huge NYC event: “A Double” Austin Aries vs. “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels! It’s a match many fans are already calling the fourth main event for 9/11, and you can check out all the details here: http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/a-battle-of-the-best/.
– Not to be left out of the excitement, ROH also announced a big title match for Plymouth, MA on Friday night, September 10th. The Kings of Wrestling will defend the ROH World Tag Team Titles against Colt Cabana & El Generico. Both teams have a huge match on tap for 9/11 and the outcome of this title contest will most certainly have an effect on each teams’ “GBHIX” match up.
