The following news items were posted on the October 28th edition of the ROH Newswire:
Just like the previous four years, ROH has scheduled two shows for Wrestlemania weekend at the host city. The shows have been scheduled for Friday, March 26th, 2010 (8 PM ET bell time) and Saturday, March 27th, 2010 (2 PM ET bell time), at the North Gym at Phoenix College. The college’s address is 1202 W. Thomas Rd., Phoenix, AZ 85013. Tickets are now on sale at ROH’s website.
Two big match-ups have been signed for ROH’s November 14th show in Mississauga (suburban Toronto, whatever). First, Austin Aries will take on Kenny Omega (click here for Holdren McNeil’s article on the match). No word yet on whether the ROH World Title will be on the line. Also, in a rematch of the final two from Survival of the Fittest 2009, Tyler Black and Roderick Strong will go one-on-one. Click here for Black’s comments after winning the tournament, which guarantees him an ROH World Title shot at a future date. Austin Aries has also issued his comments on Black’s win.
Black will also be in action the previous night in Detroit, as he is scheduled to take on Claudio Castagnoli. This match was originally scheduled for September 18th in Dayton, OH, but did not happen due to Black’s neck injury. Holdren McNeil has written a piece on this match as well.
ROH has made several big announcements for the November ROH on HDNet tapings, and they are as follows:
– Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The Briscoes
– Austin Aries will defend the ROH World Title against an already selected, but unannounced opponent
– A special announcement “that will redefine the pecking order in Ring of Honor”
The Newswire continues to play up an upcoming addition to Prince Nana’s Embassy. According to Nana’s quotes on today’s wire, he has “nursed a monster back to health” and will bring him to the November 7th show in Edison, NJ to obtain revenge against the Necro Butcher.
