DECEMBER 20TH NEWSWIRE

- People are still buzzing about “Final Battle 2012: Doomsday” and the replay buys keep coming in! We want to thank everyone for their support and making “Final Battle 2012” a giant success! If you have yet to see it… we invite you to check out the replay of “Final Battle 2012” right here.
 
- Last Sunday at “Final Battle 2012: Doomsday”, Jay & Mark Briscoe set out to restore some honor to ROH and successfully reclaimed the ROH World Tag Team Titles from Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs. Following the match Jay got on the microphone and announced that he was issuing an open invitation for any team to challenge Dem Boys for the belts, all they have to do is ask. There was one team though that Jay said didn't have to ask for a shot because they had earned it in the ring. That team being Coleman & Alexander and on January 5th, when ROH kicks off the new year with a TV Taping in Baltimore, it will be Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander for the ROH World Tag Team Titles! Order your tickets now for our return to the Du Burns Arena!
 
- Speaking of the Briscoe Brothers, on January 18th, when Ring of Honor returns to Dearborn, MI it will be the newly reunited American Wolves versus the current, 8-Time, World Tag Team Champions Jay & Mark Briscoe! As if the potential of that fight wasn't enough, based on Jay's speech after they captured the belts last Sunday, should The Briscoes retain their titles on January 5th in Baltimore over Coleman & Alexander, then this Wolves/Briscoes encounter will be for the World Tag Team Titles! The Wolves wanted it and the fans wanted it so Nigel McGuinness wasted no time at signing it! Nigel is definitely stacking the cards in 2013 and you can order your tickets for Dearborn right HERE.
 
- Announced earlier today, it's the return of "Defy or Deny" on January 19th in Milwaukee!  World Champion Kevin Steen will step into the ring with Roderick Strong, Eddie Edwards, and Michael Elgin in an elimination non-title bout with very high stakes. If Steen is eliminated, then the winner will receive a future shot at the World Title BUT if Kevin is the last man standing, whomever he pinned to achieve victory will NEVER receive another title opportunity as long as Steen remains champion! Click here for tickets to our Milwaukee return on 1/19/13!
 
- Last Sunday Matt Hardy, after earning the wrath of the ROH faithful in NYC, defeated World TV Champion Adam Cole in a non-title affair via some very dubious means. Very pleased with himself, Hardy bolted out of the ring and quickly headed to the locker room with a smile on his face, leaving a very visibly angry Adam Cole to watch him flee. ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness has commented that this is not the way things should be and Adam Cole will be happy to know that he, or some other ROH athlete, may have that opportunity very soon to gain revenge because Matt Hardy returns on two future dates. On January 5th at the TV Tapings in Baltimore and on January 19th for our live event in Milwaukee, Hardy will indeed be in the house! Will Cole have his shot at revenge on either of those dates? Will it be another ROH combatant who gets an opportunity to knock Hardy down a peg? Be there live to find out for yourself! Tickets for both dates are available right HERE in the ROH Store!
 
-And speaking of Adam Cole there, it was also announced today  that in Dearborn on January 18th, the World TV Champion will reopen the Proving Ground and his opponent will be recently dethroned World Tag Team Champion Jimmy Jacobs! Cole is looking to make-up for his defeat at the hands of Hardy and Jacobs is looking to get SCUM closer to another ROH championship.  Be there LIVE to find out which wins out!
 
- BJ Whitmer will be in Baltimore on January 5th. After his scary landing through a table last Sunday it is unknown at this time if he will be cleared to wrestle. After contacting BJ today, he gave no word on what doctors said but says that he is good to go for Baltimore! BJ is truly one of the toughest wrestlers in ROH history!
 
- ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness was very upset over the endings of certain matches last Sunday. Particularly Truth Martini's involvement in Strong vs. Elgin. Nigel says that Truth will be NOWHERE around the next time Strong and Elgin wrestle each other.
 
 
- The latest edition of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV is now available to GA Members for FREE and features a Steel City Street Fight between bitter enemies, Jay Briscoe and Steve Corino! In addition, Davey Richards faces Vinny Marseglia and all of the latest info on "Final Battle 2012: Doomsday."
 
- "Claudio Castagnoli: The Swiss Sensation" is the newest DVD to hit the ROH Store and it is a 2-Disc set that chronicles just one phase of Double C's career here in ROH. A phase that saw him step into the ring with competitors in the vein of Bryan Danielson, El Generico, Austin Aries, & Alex Shelley, challenge beasts like Morishima for the ROH World Title, reign as a king with Chris Hero, and it illustrates just how intimately his ROH career has been tied to one Nigel McGuinness ever since his debut in the summer of 2005. Order this great set today right HERE.
