ROH News – 09.10.2009

The “Final Countdown” Tour begins tonight in Philadelphia, with the first set of back-to-back ROH on HDNet television tapings.  Announced match include The American Wolves vs. Bryan Danielson & Roderick Strong; Colt Cabana vs. Nigel McGuinness; and Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The Super Smash Brothers.  Also scheduled to appear are ROH World Champion Austin Aries, Tyler Black, the Briscoe Brothers, the Young Bucks, Joey Ryan, Chris Hero, Sonjay Dutt, and more.

Tomorrow’s set of ROH on HDNet tapings will include the following matches:  Bryan Danielson vs. Roderick Strong (Danielson’s final ROH match in Philadelphia); The American Wolves vs. The Young Bucks for the ROH Tag Team titles; the Briscoe Brothers vs. the Dark City Fight Club; and Eddie Kingston vs. Claudio Castagnoli.  Also scheduled to appear are Austin Aries, Tyler Black, Nigel McGuinness (also making his final ROH appearance in Philadelphia), Chris Hero, Kenny King, Colt Cabana, Necro Butcher, Sonjay Dutt, and more.

Bret Hart will be appearing for a special meet-and-greet autograph session at the shows in Chicago (9/19), Boston (9/25), and New York City (9/26).  ROH is also announcing an additional autograph session “with another guest or two” at all of these shows, plus the 9/18 show in Dayton.  Further details to be divulged next week.

The following matches have been added to the Dayton show:  Necro Butcher vs. Silas Young, and Jimmy Rave vs. “Skullkrusher” Rasche Brown.  Necro and Rave meet the next night in a Dog Collar Match.

ROH has signed the following wrestlers for its shows in the St. Louis area (Collinsville, IL, 10/9) and Indianapolis (10/10):  Kenny Omega, Roderick Strong, Colt Cabana, “Skullkrusher” Rasche Brown, Silas Young, and Claudio Castagnoli.  The Collinsville show will also mark the return of SHIMMER to ROH, as Nicole Matthews makes her ROH debut against MsChif.  Tickets for those shows are available on roh’s website.

The Dark City Fight Club vs. Cheech & Cloudy has been signed for Glory By Honor VIII (9/26, New York City).

Because of the Danielson vs. McGuinness match at Glory By Honor VIII, Austin Aries has been left without a challenger for that night.  Aries has therefore announced an “Austin Aries” Lucky Lottery for that night.  Aries will draw his challenger’s name out of a hat.
