From ROHWrestling.com:

- A big thank you to everyone who supported us last Saturday in Chicago Ridge at Glory By Honor XII! Champions vs. All-Stars last Saturday was one of the most grueling contests in ROH history. After 73 long minutes, Unbreakable Michael Elgin was the sole survivor of the elimination style match, after he pinned ROH World Champion Adam Cole with an Elgin Bomb off the top rope! This match has to be seen to be believed and is arguably the best match in Ring of Honor this year. The 8 competitors in this match put it all on the line last Saturday, and you will be able to witness a shortened version on the November 16th edition of Ring of Honor Wrestling TV, and then shortly after on VOD and DVD which will be available at ROHwrestling.com. ROH always rocks the Windy City and we are doing it again on Saturday, March 8th 2014. For tickets to this event, click HERE.

- Champions vs. All-Stars may not air until November 16th but you can catch matches from Glory By Honor XII THIS weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV as we will feature Mark Briscoe vs. Silas Young, Jimmy Jacobs vs. Adam Page, and the main event will be THE BATTLE OF THE PILE DRIVERS with Kevin Steen vs. Michael Bennett!

- Unfortunately the classic Champions vs. All-Stars battle resulted in multiple serious injuries. As a result of the Elgin bomb off the top rope, Adam Cole sustained a concussion, and he will not be able to defend his ROH World Championship. ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness is currently working on securing a new Main Event for the great ROH fans in Cincinnati.

- In addition to Cole’s concussion last Saturday, both he and Michael Elgin were also severely dehydrated following their lengthy contest. Also, Bobby Fish suffered a severe laceration on his head as a result of an impromptu brawl with Outlaw Inc., who were watching from the front row during the contest. Our officials immediately responded during the match and temporarily patched the wound to stop the flow of blood. However, after examination, the cut was deep enough to require 5 stitches. Also, both Jay Lethal and Hoopla Hottie Kasey Ray were both knocked out during the contest after falling off the top rope and crashing through a ringside table. Both individuals suffered severe bruising over their bodies but will ultimately be okay. The bumps and bruises suffered by all the competitors proves the passion and love that each of these warriors have for the sport of pro wrestling.

- The Golden Dream is THIS Saturday at the Masonic Center in Cincinnati, Ohio and the card is stacked! Kevin Steen was supposed to receive a shot at the World Championship, however, due to Adam Cole’s concussion, the status of this match is unknown. Cole is currently awaiting results from a recent MRI to see if doctors will clear him to compete. Regardless of Cole’s condition, Nigel McGuinness has stated that the main event for The Golden Dream will still be monumental. You won’t want to miss Steen vs. Cole or the big plans that Nigel has in store for the main event.

- JUST SIGNED for The Golden Dream… ROH World Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish will go one on one with Alabama Attitude’s Mike Posey. If Posey can defeat Fish, reDRagon will immediately have to defend their titles against Alabama Attitude as soon as the match concludes. If Fish defeats Posey there will be a followup matchup between Kyle O’Reilly and Cory Hollis. If Hollis is able to defeat O’Reilly, there will still be an immediate ROH World Tag Team Championship match between reDRagon and Alabama Attitude. Either way the winning tag team will have to score two victories against the opposition.

- The main event of Final Battle 2013 has been set by ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness and it will be Adam Cole defending his ROH World Championship against “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin! As previously stipulated, the man who could pin Adam Cole during the Champions vs. All-Stars match at Glory by Honor would become the #1 contender for the championship. Michael Elgin successfully pinned Adam Cole during that match to solidify his title shot at the Hammerstein Ballroom on December 14th at ROH’s biggest show of the year! This is the big one so get your tickets now before its too late right HERE.

- Attention RINGSIDE MEMBERS… available now are 2 matches that were filmed last Saturday as Ringside Exclusives! Witness the debut of Romantic Touch! Plus the Women of Honor are in action as MsChif faces Hoopla Hottie Kasey Ray!

- Also RINGSIDE MEMBERS have access to an Exclusive Post Event Interview w/ Jay Briscoe regarding his new belt! Expect exclusive content like this to continue each week. Click HERE to sign up for a Ringside Membership today.

- Speaking of Jay Briscoe, Briscoe claims that he will be in Cincinnati to defend his “World Championship” THIS Saturday!

- Paul London defeated Mr. ROH Roderick Strong last Saturday in a phenomenal contest that is worth going out of your way to see. This match will air on the November 9th edition of Ring of Honor Wrestling TV and you can expect Paul London to return to ROH in early 2014!

- Jimmy Jacobs has a 2-2 record going into the final match in his Trial Series this Saturday in Cincinnati, Ohio when he takes on Roderick Strong. If Jimmy can pull out the victory then he will head to Dearborn, MI to face the ROH World Champion on November 15th. Throughout the entire Trial Series Jacobs has shown his toughness, skill and passion without resulting to nefarious means.

- Die Hard Eddie Edwards vs. Jay Lethal has just been signed for ROH’s return to Dearborn, Michigan on November 15th! This will be the first time in ROH history that these two men will face one another in singles competition. Expect more matches for Dearborn to be announced this week and don’t forget that this event will be recorded for ROH TV. Tickets are on sale now right HERE.

- On Saturday, November 16th ROH will return to Columbus, OH and we already know that Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander get their chance at the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon! Expect C & C to give it everything they’ve got because, as rumor has it, they view this as their last opportunity at gold.

- Boston Red Sox fans get the NEW Michael Bennett “B” T-shirt HERE.

- We are excited to announce that Ring of Honor is returning to the St Louis Area on Saturday, June 7th, 2014! The Gateway Center in Collinsville, Illinois will once again be in store for a night of hard hitting action with the best pro wrestling on the planet. Tickets are on-sale NOW for Ringside Members and go on-sale to the general public THIS Friday, November 1st at 10am EST!

- Ring of Honor wants to give a special thanks to Lisa Varon and The Squared Circle Restaurant for all of their hospitality and love! If you are a wrestling fan and like food… then there is no better place to go then The Squared Circle! Visit them at http://thesquaredcircle.biz/ or follow them on Twitter @theSQDcircle!

- The latest edition of Ring of Honor Wrestling TV is now available to Ringside Members and the main event features “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards facing off against Kevin Steen! In addition Davey Richards battles international superstar Ricky Marvin and Jimmy Jacobs goes one-on-one with Silas Young! This episode has been deemed excellent!

- Veda Scott has informed us that Barrister R.D. Evans has been training like a “man” and will return to ROH soon looking for a challenge. After constant frustration, not to mention suffering broken fingers on both hands, Evans has been convinced by Veda Scott that he should be fighting his battles in the ring rather than behind a desk.

- The 2014 Top Prospect Tournament will begin this January. Last years tournament produced the current ROH Television Champion Matt Taven. As a result of winning the tournament, Taven earned an opportunity at gold and went on to defeat Adam Cole for the TV Title at the 11th Anniversary.

- The next ROH Try-Out/Seminar Camp at the ROH Dojo in Bristol, PA is on Saturday December 7th and Sunday the 8th! Slots are almost full so do not wait until the last minute to sign up. This is a truly unique experience for every wrestler looking to further their careers. Just ask men like Michael Elgin, Michael Bennett, Matt Taven, and Tommaso Ciampa who participated in the past! Click HERE for more info.

- Don’t ever pass up the opportunity to experience ROH live. We love pro wrestling and strive to provide the best alternative to what you may see in other places. Nobody leaves an ROH event disappointed! Click HERE to see if ROH is coming to a town near you.
