AUGUST 7TH NEWSWIRE

- Thank you to everyone who attended  “All Star Extravaganza V” in Toronto last Saturday! Ring of Honor debuted at the Mattamy Athletic Centre and rocked the house! We hope to return to Toronto very soon.
 
- A very scary scene with our own BJ Whitmer happened last Saturday. Whitmer suffered a serious injury due to an apron pile driver by Michael Bennett. Whitmer, who had lost feeling in the right side of his body, was unable to continue his match with Bennett and was rushed to a local hospital. As of yesterday BJ was doing much better and is scheduled for an MRI today. BJ is a true warrior and was overwhelmed by the support of the fans and his fellow wrestlers. We will continue to have updates on BJ's condition and wish him a speedy recovery.
 
- Last Saturday we once again crowned BRAND NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions in The American Wolves of Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards! The Wolves defeated The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) in the main event to once again become ROH Tag Champions! The tag division is proving to be the most competitive it has ever been and now Davey & Eddie will head into NYC to defend those championships against the men who lost them to The Hooligans in the first place, reDRagon! The Wolves & reDRagon have split a pair of bouts in NYC (Final Battle 2012 & Supercard of Honor VII) and now the rubber match will go down as part of “Manhattan Mayhem V” on Saturday night, August 17th at the Manhattan Center in New York City! Be sure to get your tickets today right HERE.
 
- Prince Nana's role at "Manhattan Mayhem V" is getting quite the buzz. Everything has been speculated about Nana's role from him managing a new team, to him possibly joining the color position on commentary, to him possibly even being hired for an ROH office job. Regardless of the speculation, we will find out for sure on August 17th in NYC what Nana is up to.
 
- JUST SIGNED... Silas Young vs. Adam Page for "Manhattan Mayhem V" on August 17th.
 
- As a result of BJ Whitmer not being able to continue the match in Toronto, at "Manhattan Mayhem V" on August 17th, it will be Michael Bennett versus "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa in, not only a Quarter-Final tournament bout, but also in their first one-on-one meeting in Ring of Honor. Given the importance of the tournament, Maria Kanellis is banned from ringside in order to ensure no outside interference.
 
- Speaking of Tommaso Ciampa, he will be accompanied by a live performance of his entrance music from Last Remaining Pinnacle! For more information on Last Remaining Pinnacle click HERE.
 
- Karl "Machine Gun" Anderson has made a huge impression over the last few months in ROH. With only 3 matches under his belt, he remains undefeated with wins over ACH and 2 of ROH's best in Roderick Strong and Michael Elgin. With his international credentials in New Japan Pro Wrestling and his dominance in ROH, Anderson can certainly be considered one of the best pro wrestlers today. Anderson continues to build his reputation daily and he could easily be the next ROH World Champion. Buy your tickets today to see "Machine Gun" live in NYC on August 17th .
