The following news items were posted on the September 24th edition of the ROH Newswire:
Final cards have been set for Friday and Saturday’s shows (the last leg of the “Final Countdown” farewell tour for Bryan Danielson and Nigel McGuinness) and, subject to the “plus more” addendum, they are as follows:
Friday, September 25th, Boston, MA (tickets still available at the door):
Bryan Danielson vs. Davey Richards
Nigel McGuinness vs. Roderick Strong
Austin Aries & Rhett Titus vs. Kenny Omega & Colt Cabana
Kevin Steen vs. Eddie Edwards (Anything Goes match)
El Generico vs. Chris Hero vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Petey Williams (Four Corner Survival match)
Saturday, September 26th, Glory By Honor VIII, New York City, NY (sold out):
Bryan Danielson vs. Nigel McGuinness (final match in ROH)
American Wolves vs. Kevin Steen & El Generico (Ladder War for the ROH Tag Team titles)
Austin Aries’ Lucky Lottery (ROH World Title match)
The Briscoes vs. The Young Bucks
Eddie Kingston vs. Chris Hero
Claudio Castagnoli vs. Kenny Omega
The hat for Austin Aries’ Lucky Lottery at Glory By Honor VIII will include 30 names, rather than the usual 20. Should the wrestler whose name is drawn already be scheduled for a match that night, said wrestler will pull double duty and challenge for the title, in addition to his already scheduled match.
Also, Bret “The Hitman” Hart will be on hand for a special autograph signing prior to both events. Tickets are still available at the door in Boston. New York is sold out, and autograph tickets will be limited to those with a Glory By Honor VIII ticket. In addition, Danielson and McGuinness will sign autographs after both shows.
ROH’s “Buy 3, Get 2 Free Sale” is back at ROH’s website. The sale will also be in effect at both shows this weekend. Click here for details on how the sale works.
Tyler Black is said to be making good progress from his neck surgery (real) and third degree burns suffered at the hands of Austin Aries (kayfabe). Black is still scheduled to appear in Collinsville (October 9th) and Indianapolis (October 10th).
More matches have been signed for the October 9th and 10th events. In Collinsville, Roderick Strong will face off against Kevin Steen. In Indianapolis, it will be Claudio Castagnoli vs. Petey Williams.
Bret Hart was a guest on this week’s Monday Night Mayhem and spoke on a variety of topics, including ROH. Click here to listen to the interview.
This week’s six-man ROH on HDNet main event between Danielson, Strong & KENTA vs. The American Wolves and Chris Hero has now been posted on YouTube. As an FYI for those of you without HDNet, every week ROHBrazil uploads that week’s show on Thursday.
