Wrestleview’s own Jason Namako sent this in.
The Ring of Honor Newswire for January 12th.
– In the latest ROH Video Wire you will see heated face-to-face words from Roderick Strong and Eddie Edwards, as well as comments from Future Shock, Michael Elgin with Truth Martini, Kenny King, Rhett Titus, Jay Lethal, an explanation of The Embassy Limited, and the debut of our new backstage announcer Veda Scott!
– “The Homecoming 2012” on Friday night, January 20th in Philadelphia, PA is shaping up to be another ROH event that you do not want to miss. Signed yesterday, Eddie Edwards and Roderick Strong are doing away with the rules and will fight it out with No Holds Barred! Also signed yesterday, it will be “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare” Kevin Steen returning to Philadelphia to battle Kenny King.
– Just now signed for “The Homecoming 2012,” a special 4 Corner Survival pitting the undefeated “Dominant Male” Tommaso Ciampa with The Embassy vs. Grizzly Redwood vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett vs. Andy “Right Leg” Ridge!
– The Embassy Limited? It looks as though Prince Nana has partnered with a special private investor that the Prince claims will increase the Embassy’s revenue and cement them as a global authority. With the help and influence of Barrister RD Evans, a private company has made a large investment within The Embassy that should “take it to new heights” as RD Evans told ROH officials, and put into place plans for a little more order and structure in the faction. Already, The Embassy Limited is on their way up fast with Ciampa receiving his biggest match yet on January 21st in Norfolk against ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal in The Proving Ground! Is the sudden quality of opportunities for Ciampa a result of the new investors? Regardless, Jay Lethal has one of the toughest Proving Ground matches of his TV Title reign at the Norfolk Scope (Exhibition Center).
– There will be a very rare tag team lottery drawing by ROH officials next week to determine the challengers for the ROH Tag Team Titles in Norfolk, VA. The Briscoe Brothers were originally scheduled to defend against ANX but due to Titus’ severe knee injury the match was postponed until future notice. Norfolk fans will now see an unbelievable opportunity unfold as one team will be selected to compete for the gold solely on the luck of the draw. It is no secret that ROH has the best tag team division in the world and this random lottery could expedite the process for anyone to climb the ranks in one day! With the Bravados now on a long hiatus, every team in ROH has the potential and ability to attain ROH gold. No matter what team wins the lottery, the Briscoes will have a tough match ahead of them.
– This weekend’s edition of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” features footage of the historic All Star 8-Man Tag Team Elimination bout that took place at “Northern Aggression” in Greensboro, NC. This is one that you want to go out of your way to see!
– “Ring of Honor Wrestling” is now available for viewing here and it is absolutely FREE to GA members.
