– Last Saturday night Ring of Honor returned to The Du Burns Arena in Baltimore, MD for the final time in 2013 and it turned out to be another fantastic night of wrestling!
Thank you to all of our Baltimore fans who have helped make The Du Burns Arena one of our favorite spots.
– You never know what is going to happen at an ROH event as Roderick Strong surprised everyone when he interrupted ROH World Champion Adam Cole’s interview last Saturday in Baltimore. Strong said that he and Cole have unfinished business as they have done battle 6 times in ROH and they are 3 & 3. Strong laid down the challenge and although Cole refused, Strong had an ace up his sleeve! He had already been to Nigel McGuinness and the Match Maker set the World Title match for the main event! The fantastic No DQ/No Countout main event rocked the house however Strong came up short and Adam Cole was successful in his second defense.
– Speaking of never knowing what is going to happen at an ROH event, Heather McBain and Justin Scartocci got engaged at last Saturday’s ROH event in the middle of the ring! Congratulations to Heather and Justin!
– Although ACH lost, many are saying that Kevin Steen vs. ACH from last Saturday was ACH’s best match in ROH to date.
– Ring of Honor returns on October 26th to Chicago Ridge, IL for “Glory by Honor XII” and the main event is a ROH Champions vs. ROH All-Stars 8-Man Elimination tag with ROH World Champion Adam Cole, World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly & Bobby Fish), and World TV Champion Matt Taven versus “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, Jay Lethal, and C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander)! There is a great deal riding on this 2-Hour time limit bout. Should anyone on the All-Star team pin the World Champion , they will then receive a future World Title opportunity! You know that both Elgin and Lethal, especially Elgin, would love another crack at the title. This match is what ROH is all about! Tickets are on-sale now!
– Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander are slated to receive another Tag Team Title match very soon. C&C have been asking for a straight 2-on-2 shot at the belts without distractions since there is always some outside factor coming into play during title bouts. Caprice has said that it is NOW or never.
– On October 26th at “Glory by Honor XII” we will have a very special autograph signing with Lisa Marie Varon! Lisa has been around the world and competed against the very best women in the wrestling world, and now she is coming to Ring of Honor! Specific details will be available shortly but we can tell you that she will be available prior to the start of the event to meet with the ROH faithful in Chicago Ridge! Don’t forget that you can also catch all the action from the best pro wrestling company on the planet every Wednesday night at The Squared Circle in Chicago! For more information head on over to The Squared Circle’s website or follow them on Twitter @theSQDcircle!
– Jimmy Jacobs is now 1-2 in his Trial Series and will face Adam Page at Glory by Honor XII in his fourth bout. Remember, Jimmy must win three bouts to earn an ROH World Title match when we return to Dearborn, MI on 11/15.
– Mark down November 2nd, 2013 on your calendar as ROH’s return to Cincinnati, OH for “The Golden Dream” and it will be HUGE! Adam Cole defends the World Title against former World Champion Kevin Steen!!! Steen defeated Adam Cole in Chattanooga, Steen ran through most of SCUM and put the final nail in the coffin at Steel Cage Warfare, plus Steen has yet to receive a championship rematch since losing to Jay Briscoe. If there is anyone who deserves the next shot it is “Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen! Get your tickets HERE for what is sure to be our biggest event to ever hit Cincinnati.
– Also in Cincy, vying for a World TV Title opportunity at “Final Battle 2013” will be former TV Champion Jay Lethal, Mark Briscoe, “The Sicilian Psychopath” Tommaso Ciampa, and Michael Bennett in a 4 Corner Survival! While Mark Briscoe may seem like the odd man out in that equation, he has been in pursuit of the TV Title for quite some time now…his entire life actually. Little known fact, since he was a kid it has always been a dream of Mark’s to hold the Television Championship in whatever company he grew up to wrestle for. What a night November 2nd will be.
– Davey Richards in currently in England training at the legendary Snakepit.
– Don’t overlook young Adam Page. Many are saying that he could one day be championship material.
– Veda Scott has been annoying a lot of people in the locker room lately. Ever since Barrister R.D. Evans gave her a position in his office she has attempted to solicit business from anybody that has a minor issue or complaint. She is being referred to as an “ambulance chaser.”
– We are taping our TV leading to “Final Battle 2013” on November 15th in Dearborn, MI and Saturday, November 16 in Columbus, OH. Both of these events will be loaded! Tickets are available right here in the ROH Store!

– Jay Briscoe is not happy about the main event “Glory by Honor XII” saying “how can you have Champions vs. All-Stars without the real World Champion in it?” Jay is currently suspended from all ROH events until he is medically cleared from his shoulder injury slated to be in November.
