– And in “Best in the World 2011” news, we found out earlier today just what the ROH World Title match would be that afternoon in NYC: ROH World Champion Eddie Edwards defending against Davey Richards (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/edwardsvsrichards/)! These two men have been tag champions together in the past, they have stood side-by-side as close as brothers for many years, and had undoubtedly one of the past matches during ROH’s run on HDNet when they battled to crown the first TV Champion (a bout Edwards won). Now they will go head-to-head for the ROH World Title on June 26th and battle to see who truly is the best in the world!

– With the announcement of the sale to the Sinclair Broadcast Group, the month of September will see the debut of the new Ring of Honor television program which will be syndicated across the Sinclair network of stations, and with it, ROH will become the only wrestling promotion in the United States with a major, multi-market presence on broadcast TV. With this gigantic deal being signed into place ROH officials have decided that the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, IL will hold our first ever SBC television taping on August 13th, 2011. Be with us as we take our first step into a highly prosperous territory and deliver a television taping that will be host to world class matches with no nonsense wrestling. It will be what you always expect from ROH and more!
