ROHWrestling.com reports that an incident occurred on their scheduled TV appearance on Friday (05.07.2005);
“Ring Of Honor had the best mainstream publicity in company history on Friday morning when several live and taped segments were shown on New York City’s WB Network morning show. Low Ki of The Rottweilers took the opportunity of live TV to crash the scene.
The first live segment had ROH World Champion Austin Aries and Azrieal sparring. Ki, who was not scheduled nor invited, hit the ring and told Aries that he was on his turf now. Ki slapped the World Champion. Aries then took down Ki and the two brawled until they were pulled apart. The host quickly cut to the studio.
Ki’s actions are beyond deplorable as he ruined ROH’s media blitz of NYC. The station and host were both very upset and almost cancelled the rest of the ROH segments on the show.
While Ki was being pulled away off camera he yelled to ROH Owner Cary Silkin that this would be nothing compared to what The Rottweilers would do this Saturday (May 7th) at the New Yorker Hotel in Midtown Manhattan.”
This was a clever use of TV time by ROH, to attract more interest to the company.
