ROH newswire for 9/11/13

– This past Friday & Saturday night Ring of Honor brought the best pro wrestling on the planet to Chattanooga, TN and Birmingham, AL! We want to thank everyone who supported us over the weekend and we appreciate all of the great feedback. These events will be available very soon on VOD.

– Ring of Honor is back on the road to Philadelphia on Friday September 20th and Saturday the 21st for “Death Before Dishonor XI”! This will be one of the most important weekends in the history of ROH and we invite everyone to attend and witness history unfold. It will be the moment of a lifetime for either Michael Elgin, Kevin Steen, Adam Cole, or Tommaso Ciampa as one of them will enter Saturday as the new ROH World Champion. Click HERE for an updated look at the ROH World Championship Tournament brackets and join us in Philadelphia for the moment of a lifetime!

– Two title matches have officially been confirmed for Saturday September 20th as World TV Champion Matt Taven defends against Jay Lethal and the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish) defend against C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) and The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match! Tickets for our first ever “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Taping in Philly are available HERE.

– The Barrister R.D. Evans returns from his injury at “Death Before Dishonor” and is looking for revenge. With Evans recently away from his offices, Veda Scott has helped ease the load by handling the affairs of “God’s Gift” QT Marshall as well as handling a majority of Evans legal paperwork.

– Ricky Marvin is excited to make his ROH US debut at “Death Before Dishonor” and officials are just as excited to see how his style translates in an ROH ring. Both of his matches over the weekend against Roderick Strong and Davey Richard could possibly steal the show.

– As we know Jay Briscoe will present the ROH World Title belt to the winner of the tournament. Jay Briscoe is still a few months away from being cleared to wrestle but his brother Mark will be in action on September 21st in Philly!

– What does Outlaw Inc. have planned for Philly?

– This week on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV the ROH World Championship Tournament continues as Jay Lethal faces Adam Cole in a Quarter-Final match! Plus Kevin Steen battles Brian Kendrick and Roderick Strong goes one-on-one with Matt Taven in First Round Matches. Click HERE to see if ROH airs in your area.

– ROH World TV Champion Matt Taven has not been very successful during non-title matches and Truth Martini recently let him know after his loss against Jay Lethal last Saturday in Birmingham. It is known that Truth Martini has requested that Taven’s championship be up for grabs at all times in order to motivate the current champion. Nigel has yet to respond to Martini’s request.

– The latest DVD to hit the ROH Store is “Manhattan Mayhem V” from New York City. Top matches include The American Wolves defending their newly won World Tag Team Titles against reDRagon, a first time ever dream tag team match with The Young Bucks vs. The Forever Hooligans, and three Quarter Final matches in the ROH World Title Tournament with Karl Anderson vs. Michael Elgin, Kevin Steen vs. Roderick Strong, and Tommaso Ciampa vs. Michael Bennett!

– Also, the new ROH “DESIRE” Logo T-Shirt is available for purchase right HERE.

– Michael Bennett scored one of the biggest wins of his career last Saturday in Birmingham against former ROH World Champion Davey Richards. ROH officials have taken notice and, especially with Maria in the ear of the office, it is hard not to take notice of a man who can defeat Richards. Bennett wants more competition and has went on record claiming to have the best Piledriver in all of pro wrestling.

– Speaking of Davey Richards, Davey will be touring England during the month of October while partner Eddie Edwards heads to Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan.

– The Ringmasters Challenge between Roderick Strong and Adam Cole last Saturday was definitely a test of endurance, skill and heart. Two of the best collided and while Cole did nothing “wrong”, his method of attaining victory was once again questionable.

– Kyle O’Reilly and Cedric Alexander had a fantastic one-on-one showdown last Friday in Chattanooga and it is a match that you definitely want to see.

– Despite their losing effort, Alabama Attitude (Mike Posey & Corey Hollis) impressed over the weekend as a team and look better every time they compete.

– The Honor Rumble returns on September 28th in Hopkins, MN and the winner of the Honor Rumble will get an Instant Reward in the form of an ROH World Championship bout the same night! The four men still involved in the World Title Tournament (Tommaso Ciampa, Kevin Steen, Adam Cole, and Michael Elgin) will NOT be participants in the Honor Rumble but we can confirm that previous Honor Rumble winner Jay Lethal will compete. What a fun night it will be and you can get your tickets right HERE.
