– The big 3 Way Elimination tag bout at “Death Before Dishonor IX” promises to be a high energy, fast paced match with three of the hottest young tag teams in wrestling today. At “Best in the World 2011”, Matt & Nick Jackson made their return to Ring of Honor in a highly anticipated match with Future Shock. The match was an incredible display of athleticism and innovation but it was brought to a dreadful end when Lancelot & Harlem Bravado interfered in the bout. “The jealous behavior from the Bravados did not settle well with anybody,” explained Matt Jackson, “This is Ring of Honor and no match should ever end that way. We promise that on September 17th there will be no bull crap and the fans are going to see a tag team spectacle.”
– And in other news that pertains to Future Shock, ROH announced earlier today that we will make our long awaited return to Collinsville, IL on Sunday afternoon November 6th (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/roh-returns-to-collinsville/)! And on that night Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly will receive the ROH World Tag Title match they earned at “Tag Team Turmoil 2011”! Tickets for the event go on sale Thursday, September 15th at Noon EST right here at ROHWrestling.com.

– ROH is very happy that they were able to add Jay Lethal to “Death Before Dishonor IX” last week and the match he has been selected to participate in is very intriguing. Lethal will compete in his first tag team match since returning to ROH and he will team with “The Notorious 187” Homicide against The Embassy of Tommaso Ciampa & Rhino! It is no secret that Homicide has unfinished business with both Rhino and Ciampa. However the Embassy has been extremely dominant over the last few months and Homicide and Lethal have their hands full. “I am ready for anything,” stated Lethal, “I want to be tested to the max and this match is exactly that. Teaming with someone who I have not always seen eye to eye with and wrestling two very good competitors who will stop at nothing to run through us. I am ready for this challenge.”
– Scheduled for release this Friday in the ROH Online Store is a new two disc compilation called “Davey Richards: The American Wolf”. This release will include classic matches against KENTA, Kota Ibushi, Naomichi Marufuji, Bryan Danielson, Austin Aries, El Generico, Kenny Omega, Tyler Black, and many more. A total of 16 matches are featured including many which are no longer available on DVD. We’ll have more details on this release later in the week.
