PWI’s Mike Johnson has two updates on ROH.
On the TV taping front, ROH has moved their August tapings at the former ECW Arena to August 15 and the 16th to accomodate HDNET. Tickets for the cancelled July tapings and the original August dates will be honored.
Johnson also offers a hodgepodge of info on ROH talent. It includes an update on Larry Sweeney who, according to accounts given by those who saw him after last week’s show in Chicago, is in very bad shape. There are fears “that something bad is going to happen to him” if he doesn’t seek help, according to Johnson’s sources, one of whom choked up when talking about it.
In lighter talent news, Bret Hart will be signing at the September 19th show in Chicago Ridge and Little Guido is booked for the August TV tapings.
Also of note is a match announced for the July 24th Toronto Show. Jerry Lynn, Davey Richards, Jimmy Rave, Necro Butcher, D’Lo Brown and Sonjay Dutt will be taking in part in a Toronto Gauntelt match.
Finally, the no compete clause the company signed with former owner Rob Feinstein has ended, so ROH can being selling DVDs from a wide variety of indie companies, including PWG. You can check that out at their store.
