The following news itemsÂ were posted on the August 11, 2009Â ROH Newswire:
The latest edition of the ROH Videowire went liveÂ on Monday.Â This edition includes interviews with Davey Richards and Kenny Omega, a sneak peak at “A Cut Above.”Â It also includes words from Sonjay Dutt andÂ from Chris Hero, who had a stern message for KENTAÂ in anticipation of their August 14th (6-man tag)Â and 15th (one-on-one)Â match-ups.Â Check it outÂ at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H_B9fnbdMkM.
As previously mentioned, startingÂ August 17th,Â ROH on HDNet is moving to Monday.Â The show will be broadcast at 8 PM ET and then replayed at 11 PM ET. Â Check out http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XONIUD_0Ea4 for a video commemorating ROHâ€™s move into prime time.Â (WRITER’S NOTE:Â Be sure to log on to Pulse Wrestling the next day, August 18th, for the debut of my weeklyÂ “10 Thoughts on ROH on HDNet” column!)
The September 19th ROH show in Chicago has just gotten even hotter, as fans will be treated to yet another chapter to ROH’s biggest ongoing rivalry.Â Yes, folks,Â Bryan Danielson and Tyler Black will meet one-on-one on September 19th! After two unsuccessful attempts to defeat Danielson, Tyler finallyÂ climbed that mountain in theirÂ May 30th encounterÂ in Philadelphia (aired on HDNet on July 25), courtesy of the Small Package Driver.Â Â Danielson is eager to avenge that loss, and fans will no doubt be treated toÂ another classic match-up between these two.
As geared up as Danielson is for Black, however, he would be wise to not look past his previous night’s opponent.Â Signed for the September 18thÂ show in Dayton is aÂ match between Danielson andÂ Chris Hero, whoÂ has been on a tear since returning from a very successful tour of Japan for Pro Wrestling NOAH and looks to continue to climb up the ranks.Â What better way to do it than a victory over the American Dragon?
TheÂ September 18thÂ show is certainly shaping up to be a good one.Â As if Danielson v. Hero wasn’t enough, fans in Dayton will be treated to a match-upÂ containing personal implications.Â Â Last time ROH was in Detroit, Austin Aries arguably cost Petey Williams a victory inÂ the scramble match -Â a victory that would haveÂ earned Williams a shot at the ROH World Title.Â Williams has refused to take Aries’ actions lying down:Â â€œI had that match won,â€ said Petey. â€œI was this close to earning a title match, and he stole it.Â If Aries is any kind of man, any kind of champion, heâ€™ll give me a match.Â Heâ€™s knows I can beat him.â€Â Aries has responded in kind:Â â€œPetey Williams hasnâ€™t done anything in ROH to put himself in a position to face me.Â Sure, if heâ€™d won that scramble in Detroit, he would have.Â But he didnâ€™t.Â And the circumstances surrounding itâ€¦are HIS problem.Â Iâ€™m A-Double, perhaps the greatest that ever lived, and I did what needed to be done.Â Thatâ€™s what the great ones do.Â But Iâ€™ll throw Petey a bone because Iâ€™m a generous man.Â Tell Petey to bring a partner to Dayton, and me and ‘Addicted to Love’ will feel him out.â€Â So on September 18th in Dayton, it will be Austin AriesÂ and Rhett Titus vs. Petey Williams and a partner of his choosing.Â Â
As was evident from the August 7th newswire, ROH’s tag team division is really heating up these days.Â Fans at the September 19th show in Chicago will be treated to another match-up between two of ROH’s young, hungry, up-and-coming teams, as Matt and Nick Jackson â€“ The Young Bucks â€“ willÂ take onÂ Jon Davis and Kory Chavis â€“ the Dark City Fight Club.Â The DCFCÂ have been on the fast track to recapture the momentum they’d garnered before Davis’ wrist injury, and a win against the Young Bucks would do just that.Â As for the Young Bucks, a win over one of ROH’s more established teams would go a long away toward shooting them up the tag ranks.
Â ROH appears to be consideringÂ a Ring of Honor Video-on-Demand Service.Â FansÂ can let ROH know what they’d like to seeÂ viaÂ www.twitter.com/rohonhdnet, www.facebook.com/ringofhonor, or at www.myspace.com/ringofhonor.
Speaking of additional programming, fans mayÂ now watch Chris Hero vs. Frankie The Mobster from “The Hunt Begins” in Montreal, Quebec on April 17, 2009.Â The match is posted at http://www.you-tube.com/watch?v=vYmrTYarORY.Â Â Additional matchesÂ will be released in the near future on Ring of Honor’s You Tube Channel.
