APRIL 24TH NEWSWIRE

- As announced last week, Naomichi Marufuji will be unable to compete at "Border Wars 2013" or the TV Taping the following day due to a severe knee injury. Ring of Honor officials are hard at work looking for a replacement for Marufuji and we will make an announcement at 8pm Tonight via Twitter & Facebook, with a complete story tomorrow morning right here  ROHwrestling.com.
 
- On the latest episode of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV, after Steve Corino & S.C.U.M assaulted Jorge Santi and Tadarius Thomas before their match could really get underway, a verbal confrontation occurred between Nigel McGuinness and Corino resulting in a match being made for "Border Wars 2013"! It will be S.C.U.M versus Jay Lethal & Michael Elgin and if Team ROH wins, then Corino will leave ROH but if S.C.U.M wins, then a member will get a future ROH title shot and Corino will sit next to Kevin Kelly as color commentator. The stakes are high in Toronto and you can catch all the action live on iPPV or in-person at the Ted Reeve Arena!
 
- Despite what Steve Corino has stated, Kevin Steen says that he WILL BE at "Border Wars 2013!"
 
- Announced earlier today, it's ROH vs. SCUM when "Buzzsaw" BJ Whitmer takes on his former partner Rhett Titus in a rematch of their "WAR" encounter!  Unlike that one, this battle has a special stipulation requested by Whitmer himself....I QUIT MATCH!
 
- Just signed to compete for the “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings in Toronto on Sunday, May 5th is "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett with "The First Lady of ROH" Maria Kanellis! Bennett's ROH contract expired on January 1st and rumor has it that ROH offered him a very lucrative extension but he has been holding out. Bennett claims that he has been weighing offers from major motion picture companies, record labels, other wrestling companies, etc. We are unaware if Bennett has recently resigned with ROH but what we are aware of is that Bennett and "The First Lady of ROH" will definitely be in Toronto! Tickets are on-sale HERE in the ROH Store!!!
 
- On May 11th, Ring of Honor heads back to the Rostraver Ice Garden in Belle Vernon, PA for a big live event DVD taping and several big match-ups were recently signed to take place! First up, in a rematch of the finals of the 2013 Top Prospect Tournament Tadarius Thomas will go one-on-one with current World TV Champion Matt Taven! If Taven makes it out of "Border Wars 2013" weekend as champion, then this rematch will also be held under Proving Ground rules! Next, it seems that after only a pair of matches as a team and their 1-1 win/loss record, RD Evans has petitioned for a World Tag Team Title shot for himself & QT Marshall. Match Maker Nigel McGuinness balked at this request, stating that RD & QT had proved absolutely nothing as a team but he would give them the opportunity to do so in Pittsburgh. So, on May 11th, "God's Gift" and The Barrister will have to face one of the toughest teams in ROH history: The American Wolves! And Jay Lethal and Jimmy Jacobs will lock horns in a battle of ROH vs. S.C.U.M! Tickets are on-sale right HERE for our return to the Pittsburgh area!
