Ring of Honor Newswire for February 21, 2013

Posted by Pro Wrestling on Friday, February 22nd, 2013


- Ring of Honor returns to The Manhattan Center in New York during the biggest wrestling weekend of the year, April 5th & 6th, for “Supercard of Honor VII” and “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV respectively. The first night we come to you live on iPPV from The Hammerstein Ballroom and the next afternoon we move upstairs to The Grand Ballroom to tape ROH TV in NYC for the very first time! They are certain to be two huge events with the first getting close to sold out. You can expect more wrestlers to be signed in the coming weeks and matches to be finalized as the events draw near.

- The anticipation is high for ROH’s “11th Anniversary Event” on March 2nd from the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge! It will definitely be a celebration that you do not want to miss as Jay Lethal attempts to bring honor back to ROH by defeating ROH World Champion Kevin Steen! There will be 8 matches total and the card is stacked! Tickets for our birthday event are available right in the ROH Store!

- The day after the “11th Anniversary” on March 3rd, we will be back in the Frontier Fieldhouse for a set of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings! The tapings will be jam-packed and JUST SIGNED… The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) face the new combination of Tadarius Thomas and ACH! Plus a Four Corner Survival involving the Women of Honor and much more! Tickets for this event are available right in the ROH Store!

- To celebrate ROH’s upcoming “11th Anniversary”, we are offering some great bouts from previous Anniversary events for FREE! Posted yesterday, ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness vs. GHC Jr. Heavyweight Champion KENTA from the 7th Anniversary!

- Steve Corino is now officially claiming that S.C.U.M will gain a new member at the “11th Anniversary” on March 2nd. This could be legit or just mind games but we will release any new info regarding the subject if we receive it.

- Roderick Strong is planning on beating “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin in 2 straight falls at the “11th Anniversary” on March 2nd. “Porky will be shut down in Chicago bro,” explained Strong. “People claim that you are a future ROH World Champion? Well that is a hard mountain to climb and I have been there before and will soon be there again. You will never win gold because you cannot live up to the hype. So on March 2nd I’ll be celebrating ROH’s birthday by beating your ass, drinking beer, and banging. It will be redonk!”

- Charlie Haas attacked Cheeseburger February 16th in Cincinnati, Ohio. The extent of Cheeseburger’s injuries are not known at this time.

- Available now for immediate viewing, it’s the “Honor vs. Evil” live event from Cincinnati that took place on 2/16/13! Featuring S.C.U.M vs. World TV Champion Adam Cole, Davey Richards, & Michael Elgin in a No Time Limit Elimination War, this event also includes Kyle O’Reilly vs. BJ Whitmer, Jay & Mark Briscoe in singles action, Charlie Haas vs. Pepper Parks, and more! Order yours now and for only $9.95 you can also pre-order the DVD! That’s a $10 savings off the regular price!

- Also, keep an eye on the PPV section of the website because, coming sooner than you think, exclusively available on VOD and never released on DVD, it will be one of the most demanded compilations in ROH’s eleven year history…
