- Steve Corino continues to stress that his contractual obligations of providing color commentary on ROH TV are not being honored therefore ROH is in breach. Unfortunately, due to legal matters, we can no longer ignore Steve Corino and his case. It is true that in May 2013 Mr. Corino signed a full-time color commentator contract due to a match stipulation at Border Wars. According to legal sources, Mr. Corino’s history as a competitive talent is irrelevant to his role as a member of the ROH broadcast team.

- ROH officials are in the process of securing new towns for 2014 live events. Be on the lookout for ROH when in debuts in a town near you!

- “Final Battle 2013″ is on Saturday night December 14th at The Hammerstein Ballroom! All Championships will be defended plus much more. This will be something very special. Get your tickets now before its too late right HERE.

- Remember that we are taping our TV leading to “Final Battle 2013″ on November 15th in Dearborn, MI and Saturday, November 16 in Columbus, OH. Expect these events to be stacked from top to bottom. We already know that Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander get their chance at the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon in Columbus plus we are hearing rumors of some very intriguing first-time bouts that are in the process of being signed.
