– Texas’ own Raymond Rowe debuts for ROH THIS Saturday and officials are excited to see what Rowe has to offer.

– This week on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV features two Triple Threat matches with a shot at the gold at stake! Jay Lethal vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett vs. BJ Whitmer in a match to determine the challenger for the Television Title at “Best In The World 2013″ headlines while Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs. QT Marshall & RD Evans vs. Tadarius Thomas & ACH determines the challengers for the Tag Team Titles! All of this and much more this weekend on TV!

– “Live And Let Die” on Saturday June 8th in Columbus, OH is a special day where fans are given the opportunity to ask Steve Corino and Matt Hardy anything they want! That’s right… one hour before bell time, a 30 minute Q&A session will be held with Corino and Matt Hardy! This is your opportunity to ask those hard hitting questions to Hardy and Corino and this Q&A WILL be filmed! The ROH fans are very vocal about Matt Hardy, so now is the opportunity to say and ask the things that you want to Matt Hardy face-to-face! Keep in mind that this attraction will be heavily monitored and extra security will be on hand. Ring of Honor is coming to Ohio with guns blazing and you can get your tickets to be a part of it right in the ROH Store!

– There will be another match added to Columbus on Saturday June 8th involving Roderick Strong!

– The latest edition of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV is available to RINGSIDE MEMBERS and is definitely an episode that you want to go out of your way to see. Roderick Strong faces Pro Wrestling NOAH’s Taiji Ishimori in an unbelievable match up! In addition, Mark Briscoe battles Colin Delaney, MsChif versus Cherry Bomb and much more!

– “Best in the World 2013” and the TV Tapings will be the biggest wrestling weekend of the summer! Both days will feature matches that are worth driving far distances to see. It will be a very special weekend and fans in Baltimore will not be disappointed at our return to the Du Burns Arena on June 22nd and 23rd! Rumor has it that the entire Briscoe family will be in attendance!

– In big news…. Kevin Steen and Matt Hardy will collide live on iPPV during “Best in the World 2013” on June 22nd! Steen has taken every opportunity since the night S.C.U.M assaulted him to decimate the group piece-by-piece. Kevin took down Rhett Titus at “Dragon’s Reign” on May 11th, defeated Jimmy Jacobs in Richmond on the 18th, and will continue, that mission on June 8th in Columbus when he faces Rhino. Sadly the one blemish on his record may be the most critical because it was the pin fall loss he took at “Border Wars 2013” that has put Matt Hardy in a position to become ROH World Champion on June 23rd. Hardy and Steen were destined to clash and it happens in Baltimore. This match was also the most wanted ROH match according to your texts to T-O-D-A-Y from our recent promotion on TV for Novation Capital.

– “Border Wars 2013” is now available on DVD in the ROH Store. This gigantic event from The Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto features two huge title matches, Taiji Ishimori from Pro Wrestling NOAH, a first time ever dream match as Davey Richards goes one-on-one with Paul London, a surprising return, and the continuation of the ROH vs. SCUM feud.

– “A Night of Hoopla” hosted by Truth Martini is Thursday, July 11th 2013 in Chicago and is an unauthorized event that will be nothing like any ROH event in history. Expect the unexpected as this promises to be a wild and crazy night with the best pro wrestling on the planet mixed in! We know that DELIRIOUS is the first wrestler signed to appear but Truth has informed us that of course ROH Television Champion Matt Taven will be in the house with the #1 Hoopla Hottie… Scarlett!!! Also, people are loving the drink specials that will include $1.50 domestic bottles and $2.50 Long Island Ice Tea! Tickets are limited so get them quick!
