This is a tournament where multiple competitors battle it out in a series of qualifying matches, looking to earn a spot in the 6-Man Elimination Finals, and up for grabs, a future shot at the ROH World Title. This year, for the first time, the tournament will be televised on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV and the first two men to sign on to compete are the ROH World TV Champion Adam Cole and Survival of the Fittest 2011 Winner “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin!

– “Death Before Dishonor X” is September 15th from Chicago Ridge, IL and it is officially a State of Emergency! ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette has been throwing many different challengers at ROH World Champion Kevin Steen since May but nobody has been able to beat Steen. Cornette has said that we are currently in a “State of Emergency” and therefore he has made a deal with Truth Martini to have “The Man Beast” Rhino take out Steen on September 15th and win the ROH World Championship! This will be an unbelievable wind up to an excellent card that also includes the semi-finals and finals of the ROH Tag Team Title Tournament. Tune into ROH TV this weekend for more info on “Death Before Dishonor X” in Chicago and get your tickets now!
– It was also announced earlier today, that “The American Wolf” Davey Richards will return to ROH for the first time since losing to Kevin Steen at “Best in the World 2012: Hostage Crisis”. ROH officials haven’t told us much just that he will be there to address his future in Ring of Honor, a future that does not include the ROH World Title as long as it’s held by Steen.
– This week on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV the main event features a HUGE 6-Man Mayhem match with the winner getting an ROH TV title shot at “Death Before Dishonor X”! It will be Roderick Strong vs. Jay Lethal vs. TJ Perkins vs. “No Fear” Mike Mondo vs. Tommaso Ciampa vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett! In addition, the Tag Team Tournament for the vacant titles begins as Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander face The Young Bucks in a First Round match! Also, “God’s Gift” QT Marshall battles Tadarius Thomas and much more.
– We are pleased to announce that former ROH Triple Crown Champion Eddie Edwards will participate in the Pro Wrestling NOAH 6th annual NTV Cup Jr. Heavyweight Tag League on September 8th through the 22nd.

Unfortunately Edwards will not be available for any ROH events in the month of September but he will return to ROH on October 6th in Rahway!
– Speaking of Rahway, ROH officials are planning a big event for our New Jersey return on October 6th and the first details of it leaked out earlier today!
