- On March 22nd, we return to the Montgomery County Fairgrounds in Dayton with FLYIN' HIGH! It's a Double Main Event with a Tag Team Grudge Match pitting Jay & Mark Briscoe against Adam Cole & Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis and for the first time in ROH... "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles one-on-one with "Knockout Artist" Chris Hero! In addition, three great bouts were signed yesterday and JUST SIGNED... Six Man Tag Action with The Decade (Roderick Strong/BJ Whitmer/Jimmy Jacobs) vs. Caprice Coleman & Adrenaline RUSH (ACH & Tadarius Thomas)! For tickets, check HERE!
- ROH World Champion Adam Cole was very impressive over the weekend by successfully defending his title in 2 outstanding matches against Matt Taven and Chris Hero. Cole has managed to hold the championship for 6 months but the list of top contenders have never been so credible. Jay Briscoe, Kevin Steen, Michael Elgin, and AJ Styles are all me at the top of the ranks. Can Cole manage to get past all of these men with the title in the next few months?
- After The DECADE’s BJ Whitmer & Jimmy Jacobs defeated Cedric Alexander & Adam Page last Friday in Milwaukee, Jimmy Jacobs verbally berated Cedric Alexander for his disrespect of the veterans and he told Page not to follow Alexander and to follow The Decade. Adam Page left with The Decade following the match and appeared in Chicago the next night helping the veterans with tasks considered "paying dues". The Decade says that there is a lost tradition of locker room ethics that no longer exists and Adam Page has stepped up to earn respect the right way and the traditional way. The Decade DOES NOT consider Page a member of the trio, just their "young boy".
- The ROH World Television Champion Tommaso Ciampa will defend the title THIS weekend on ROH TV against Jay Lethal! In addition, Raymond Rowe and Hanson team up against Team Benchmark plus Kevin Steen speaks. Click HERE to see if ROH airs in your area.
- Speaking of Ciampa, The ROH World Television Champion defended the title successfully overseas in Europe recently. WXW, Preston City Wrestling, & SouthSide Wrestling all hosted officially sanctioned ROH World Television Title matches and footage courtesy of these international promotions will air on a future episode of ROH TV.
- To say reDRagon are upset is an understatement.
- Truth Martini says he has a surprise for Matt Taven at Supercard of Honor VIII on April 4th in New Orleans. Truth was a huge factor in Taven's winless weekend inMilwaukee and Chicago in an effort to ruin Taven's life for firing him. We hope to have more details soon.
