ROHWrestling.com announced the following this morning:
We have major news for this Saturday’s PPV taping in Chicago. The biggest grudge World Title Match in ROH history has been signed. ROH World Champion Takeshi Morishima will put the belt on the line against former World Champion Bryan Danielson THIS SATURDAY in Chicago. You can now save almost 30% on tickets until tomorrow morning at ROHwrestling.com. As documented in the latest ROH Video Wire, Bryan Danielson suffered a serious eye injury against Morishima during their 8/25 bout in Manhattan and needed emergency surgery. Danielson’s doctor told him yesterday that he is recovering quickly and that he will probably be able to wrestle this weekend. Danielson will have one more check up tomorrow just to make sure. However, Danielson said he is feeling great and he wants Morishima back in the ring. Danielson said cannot wait to get Morishima in the ring. Danielson says that Morishima took his vision from him so he will get revenge by ending Morishima’s over six month ROH World Title reign. Danielson proved his toughness last year when he wrestled for months with a severely injured shoulder. ROH officials are 100% confident that Danielson is ready to go for this Saturday’s epic rematch. We will have more on this bout and another update on Danielson after his latest visit to the doctor in tomorrow’s ROHwrestling.com Newswire. It simply doesn’t get any bigger than this.
Also from ROHWrestling.com, “there are still no plans for Danielson to compete in Detroit this Friday to give him an additional night of rest.”
The Chicago Ridge ROH show this Saturday will be the taping for the promotion’s third pay-per-view.
