ROH News on Briscoe, Jacobs, Mania Weekend & More


In the April 16 Wrestling Observer Newsletter (click here for subscription information), Dave Meltzer reports that, after speculation otherwise, ROH has indeed booked Friday and Saturday shows in Orlando — outside of the promotion’s usual fanbase — for Wrestlemania 24 weekend. Will TNA do a show as well?

In the April 23 Observer, it’s reported that the April 13 and April 14 ROH shows in LI and NJ, respectively, each drew 700 fans.

Additionally, Mark Briscoe appears to be okay, and even though he was pulled from those two shows, he — along with his brother and even his mom — told Gabe Sapolsky that he could be physical at the show, so he was booked as such. Jimmy Jacobs, however, is expected to be out for up to nine months after ACL surgery.
