The Ring of Honor Newswire for July 17th.
– We want to thank everyone who attended Ring of Honor Wrestling last Saturday in Milwaukee! It was truly an electric atmosphere with everybody raving about the great matches and great live experience. This will definitely be one to purchase on DVD when it becomes available!
– To open the event last Saturday in Milwaukee, ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette addressed the vacancy of the ROH World Tag Team Titles and stated that the 8 Team Tag Tournament will begin on TV and that the new tag team champions will be crowned at “Death Before Dishonor X” on iPPV from Chicago Ridge on September 15th! This has made our upcoming Chicago return a hot ticket and there is no doubt that history will be made on September 15th! Get your tickets now and get them right here.
– Speaking of the big ROH Tag Team Tournament, entered in the tournament are the 7-Time Former ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay & Mark Briscoe, The Young Bucks, BLK OUT and announced today… The Guardians of Truth!
– Mark Briscoe’s unbelievable balcony dive from last Saturdays Milwaukee event will be remembered for a very long time! Somehow Mark is okay and was back working at the chicken farm early Monday morning.
– Rhett Titus with words after the Main Event in Milwaukee…
– Just released with this week’s “Tuesday Rollout”, it’s “Jay Lethal: Lethal Injection”! This 2-Disc DVD collection highlights the ROH career of Lethal from his early days as part of Special K to his 2011 return to Ring of Honor to his World Title challenge against Davey Richards. Featuring bouts against Low Ki, CM Punk, Samoa Joe, Roderick Strong, and more, this is a showcase of one of the men the ROH faithful have watched grow up right in front of them. Order yours now!
– Ring of Honor is heating up and will reach a “Boiling Point” on August 11th in Providence, RI! Today we saw 3 big matches announced including “The Outlaw” Charlie Haas vs. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, The Briscoe Brothers vs. Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs, and Jay Lethal vs. Tommaso Ciampa in 2 out of 3 falls! The ROH World Title will also be defended that night plus we are finalizing another major announcement that will be released soon! Keep an eye on ROHWrestling.com and ROH TV THIS weekend for match announcements as they are set for this big event!!!
– Announced yesterday, Homicide will challenge for the ROH World Championship against Kevin Steen on August 3rd in Baltimore at the Du Burns Arena and it will be filmed for broadcast television! Since capturing the title at “Border Wars” Kevin Steen has turned back the challenges of three former World Champions; Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, and Roderick Strong have all fallen before him but one thing none of those men had was the win-loss record Homicide holds over Steen. They have only met twice one-on-one in ROH, but both times it was “The Notorious 187” who had his hand raised in victory.
– In a great match last Saturday in Milwaukee, Kyle O’Reilly submitted newcomer Tadarius Thomas but in a dishonorable act O’Reilly kept the submission on after the bell refusing to let go. Kyle’s training partner Tony Kozina came out to attempt to reason with Kyle, but O’Reilly turned his back on Kozina and locked the armbar on his former friend. Kyle recently walked out on his mentor Davey Richards at “Best in the World 2012” and while ROH officials cannot sign Richards vs. O’Reilly any time soon they have signed Kyle O’Reilly vs. Tony Kozina for August 3rd in Baltimore.
– Ring of Honor Wrestling is happy to announce that on Saturday, September 8th we will return to Charlotte, NC & The Metrolina Tradeshow for another huge live event! Tickets for our Charlotte return go on sale at ROHWrestling.com to Ringside Members this TOMORROW at 10AM EST and to the General Public on Friday 7/20 at 10AM EST.ROH officials have also informed ROHWrestling.com that there will be a Cage Match in the main event!!! The participants in the cage match will be announced TOMORROW so make sure you get your browser back here and keep an eye on ROHWrestling.com for more talent announcements and match details as they become available.
– Ring of Honor Wrestling is very excited to state that we have finalized all the necessary details and can now officially announce that on Friday night April 5, 2013 we will return to The Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City to present “Supercard of Honor VII”!!!! That will undoubtedly be the biggest wrestling weekend of the year in the biggest city in the country and ROH will be right in the heart of it with the absolute best in-ring action you can expect to see anywhere in the world! And since we know fans from across the world will be traveling to the Big Apple that weekend, Ring of Honor is looking to make your travel plans as easy as possible by making our tickets available to you NOW right here! Get them while you can!
– Truth Martini’s mercenary “The Man Beast” Rhino is on a roll pinning Mark Briscoe last month in Pittsburgh in a tag team bout and last Saturday in Milwaukee he pinned former World Champion Eddie Edwards! The Gore is obviously a move to be reckoned with.
– The latest edition of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV is available to Ringside Members. It’s a Road Rage edition from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City featuring the ROH Television Title Match between Roderick Strong, Jay Lethal and Tommaso Ciampa! In addition, Fit Finlay battles “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and other highlights from “Best in the World 2012: Hostage Crisis”!
