The following news items were posted on the March 30th edition of the ROH Newswire:
Chris Hero (lower back/hip) and Roderick Strong (left arm/shoulder) both sustained injuries at this past weekend’s Phoenix shows – Hero on Friday, Strong on Saturday. Neither man is expected to miss any action.
Delirious is still out of action with a throat injury, which is believed at this point to be a minor tracheal laceration. There is no timetable for his return, and the status of his Pick 6 Series spot is currently up in the air.
ROH has posted another promo video for this weekend’s PPV, “The Big Bang!”, in Charlotte. This video details the background on the ROH World Title match between Tyler Black, Austin Aries, and Roderick Strong. Click here to watch the video.
ROH has posted another episode of “The Art of Wrestling”, featuring Colt Cabana. In this episode, Colt and the Briscoes provide a lesson in beer chugging. No, really. See it for yourself.
Since this week’s Newswire theme seems to be “videos galore”, it is only fitting that the latest edition of the ROH Video Wire be up. This week’s edition, the final one before this weekend’s PPV, features comments from the Necro Butcher, Prince Nana, the Briscoes, the Kings of Wrestling, Davey Richards, Kenny King, Austin Aries, Tyler Black, and more.

The feud between Necro Butcher and The Embassy apparently must go on. This Saturday, Necro will take on Erick Stevens in a “Butcher’s Rules” (i.e., Anything Goes) Match.
ROH claims to be reviewing two Pick 6 Championship petitions, which could have a strong impact on the upcoming shows in Dayton, OH and Chicago, IL (April 23rd and 24th, respectively). Translation: the title matches for that weekend’s shows will probably be booked sometime in the near future.
ROH has stated that it will be be in Atlanta next year for its usual Wrestlemania Weekend shows (weekend of April 3rd, 2011).
