Roderick Strong and Jay Briscoe have had an incredible series of matches against each other in the last few months, with the most recent bout taking place at the last ROH on HDNet National TV Tapings. Now they’re set to do it again, but this time, with an added ingredient. D’Lo Brown faced Jay Briscoe in Philly as well, and ducked out when times got tough. Now all three men will do battle. It’s a 3 Way Dance and the first of the three TV main events to be filmed on June 19th as ROH and HDNet roll back into the Arena on South Philadelphia!

Also signed for June 19th in South Philly is a singles grudge match with bad blood all over it. Davey Richards took out the knee of El Generico backing February at “Proving Ground ’09”. That injury resurfaced, and Generico missed action as a result. Now, for the first time since the injury, El Generico has the chance to right Davey’s wrongs in a one-on-one contest! Can Generico exact his own personal revenge in Philly on 6/19?

The third of our three television main events to be filmed on June 19th is an ROH Main Event anywhere in the country. These two men have battled one another on several occasions, many times over the ROH World Title. For the first time since “Injustice II”, it will be Tyler Black taking on Nigel McGuinness in singles competition! Tyler is coming off perhaps his biggest win to date – a thrilling victory over Bryan Danielson at the last tapings, and Nigel is back on the active roster coming off potentially career-threatening arm injuries. Can Nigel show he’s still got what it takes, or will Tyler cement his place at the top of the heap in ROH? Tickets for June 19th and 20th in South Philly are available at!

Yesterday, Mike “Hog” Hogewood and Dave Prazak began the voiceovers for weeks 13-18 of Ring of Honor Wrestling on HDNet at the HDNet studios in Denver. Rumor has it that Prazak didn’t take kindly to the Hog’s assertion that Prazak and Bobby Dempsey share the same hair stylist, and as such, Prazak’s “do” got done.

Signed for Detroit on June 26th is the return of the Six Man Mayhem Match! This is a match that could take on very interesting possibilities. Austin Aries has been on fire as of late in ROH, taking every opportunity that comes his way and turning it into a positive for “A Double”. Joey Ryan is new to ROH, but smartly aligned himself with the powerful Embassy and is reveling in his role as Prince Nana’s “hired Magnum”. Now add in Petey Williams, fresh off a very impressive tour of All-Japan Pro Wrestling. Finally, add into the mix the volatile Sami Callihan, the powerful “Skullkrusher” Rasche Brown, and to top it off, Delirious! ROH officials have already mandated that should Aries leave NYC this weekend as ROH World Champion, this match will be a non-title affair.

The Four Corner Survival scheduled for Chicago Ridge on June 27th has been altered and now the Six Man Mayhem Match returns to the Windy City! Already signed for this match are Rhett Titus, Egotistico Fantastico, Sami Callihan, and Delirious. Just added to the contest are two men that didn’t see eye-to-eye last time out in Chi Town, as both Silas Young and “Sugarfoot” Alex Payne have been added!
