- Congratulations to the NEW ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe!!!!
- Ring of Honor wants to thank all of the fans who attended a SOLD OUT "Supercard of Honor VII" and the TV Tapings in New York City last Friday and Saturday. Both events were a big success and it is truly a great time to be a fan of ROH! The replay of "Supercard of Honor VII" is available for On Demand viewing right HERE and the first taping from Saturday will air THIS weekend on TV!
- Speaking of that episode, you will hear the new champion speak for the first time since winning the ROH World Title! In addition, the 5 men who represented Team Honor at "Supercard of Honor VII" will face off in a 5-Way Scramble for a shot at the TV Title at "Border Wars 2013"! It's BJ Whitmer vs. "No Fear" Mike Mondo vs. Caprice Coleman vs. Cedric Alexander vs. Mark Briscoe! Plus, Bobby Fish battles "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards and the new duo of QT Marshall and RD Evans face Alabama Attitude! All of that and much more on this weeks CANT MISS episode of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV. Check HERE to see if ROH TV airs in your area or Click here for Early Bird Viewing.
- We are now on the road to "Border Wars 2013" and Jay Briscoe will make the first defense of his newly won World Championship on May 4th when ROH returns to Toronto & The Ted Reeve Arena on iPPV! His opponent, based on Match Maker Nigel McGuinness' proclamation on the 3/16/13 episode of ROH TV, will be the former World Television Champion Adam Cole! At "Supercard of Honor VII" Cole was the first man to pin Matt Hardy since the "Self Proclaimed Icon" returned to ROH competition late last year, but it did not parlay into reclaiming the TV Title from Matt Taven. As a matter of fact, Cole has come up on the losing end at all three of the last iPPV events ("FB 2012" to Hardy, "11th Anniversary" to Taven, & "SoH VII" to Taven). That is a simple fact that must weigh heavily on Cole's mind as "Border Wars 2013" creeps closer, but it is one that Cole must move past if he hopes to have any chance of dethroning Jay Briscoe in Toronto! Great seats are available right HERE in the ROH Store for both this event as well as our first international TV Taping the following day!
- Announced today, multi-time GHC Champion Naomichi Marufuji and GHC Jr. Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori's matches have been signed for "Border Wars 2013", and we can now announce their respective bouts for each day! First, at "Border Wars 2013" on Saturday May 4th it will be Taiji Ishimori vs. Eddie Edwards and Naomichi Marufuji vs. Davey Richards! Then at the "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV Taping on May 5th its Taiji Ishimori vs. Roderick Strong and Naomichi Marufuji vs. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin! It may be your only opportunity to see two of NOAH's best in Ring of Honor this year so get your tickets now!
