– A special thank you to everyone who attended The Golden Dream last Saturday night in Cincinnati. It was certainly a noteworthy event filled with the electrifying pro wrestling that you can only see in Ring of Honor. Check out all of the results right HERE and the VOD/DVD will be available soon.
– In the most significant announcement made last Saturday, the new Final Battle 2013 main event will see Adam Cole defend his ROH World Championship in a triple threat match against both Jay Briscoe and “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin! All three men have legitimate claims to being the World Champion and they will finally clash in New York City! Last Saturday ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness announced that the winner of the main event between Kevin Steen and Jay Briscoe would be inserted into the ROH World Championship match at Final Battle. After multiple distractions from Adam Cole, and from Maria Kanellis, Jay Briscoe defeated Kevin Steen with a Jay Driller.
– Also at Final Battle 2013, Matt Taven will defend his ROH World Television Championship against “The Sicilian Psychopath” Tommaso Ciampa! At The Golden Dream this past Saturday, Ciampa became the #1 contender by defeating Jay Lethal and Mark Briscoe in a triple threat match. Also announced for Final Battle 2013, The Young Bucks return to take on Adrenaline RUSH!
– We are back on the road on November 15th and 16th for Pursuit Night 1 & 2 in Dearborn, MI & Columbus, OH. Both of these events are shaping up to be stellar and you can see the announced matches thus far for Night 1 HERE and Night 2 right HERE. Jay Briscoe has stated that he will be in both towns looking to defend his “Real World Championship”.
– Jimmy Jacobs successfully defeated Roderick Strong to win his best of 5 Trial Series last Saturday, and because he won 3 out of the 5 matches, Jacobs has earned an ROH World Championship opportunity against Adam Cole, just miles from his hometown, in Dearborn, Michigan! This will be Jacob’s 4th attempt at winning the ROH World Championship during his career. His first opportunity came on 6/23/06 in Detroit when he lost to Bryan Danielson. On 2/27/09 Jacobs lost in a 4 way match for the championship to Nigel McGuinness. Later that year on 9/14/06 Jacobs lost in Tokyo, Japan again to Nigel McGuinness. After 4 years Jacobs is hungry for another shot at the gold. Jimmy has come a long way in the company since his last shot in 2009, and might be the best he’s ever been in his career.
– Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander get their chance at the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon on November 16th in Columbus, OH and many are expecting this to either make or break C & C. Caprice & Cedric definitely have what it takes to reign supreme in the tag team division and both men have come a long way since debuting as a team. reDRagon has proven to be the real deal and they are already 2-time ROH Tag Team Champions with no signs of slowing down. The best tag team division in the world headlines Columbus and it promises to be big!
– Kevin Steen will not be in Dearborn or Columbus due to his actions last Saturday in Cincinnati. Maria Kanellis was a big factor in Steen’s downfall to Jay Briscoe. After the match Steen brought Maria back out to the ring in an attempt to Package Piledrive her! Fortunately, referees and security saved Maria. However, nobody was there to save them, as Steen went on a rampage and laid out all of the referees and security. Referee Paul Turner was rushed to the hospital after being unconscious for an extended period of time. Thankfully Paul will be okay, but he suffered multiple injuries.
