JANUARY 29TH NEWSWIRE

- Thank you to everyone who attended Wrestling's Finest last Saturday at the David L. Lawrence Convention Center in Pittsburgh, PA. 2014 has started off extremely strong and we thank you for supporting the best wrestling on the planet. The year is only going to get better... trust us!
 
 
- Our next live event is State of the Art on February 8th when ROH returns to San Antonio, Texas and the main event is official... World Champion Adam Cole vs. "Real World Champion" Jay Briscoe with Jay Briscoe's belt up for grabs! Briscoe has made it known since Final Battle 2013 that he wants a one-on-one match with Adam Cole as soon as possible. Briscoe sees himself as the current champion and has challenged Cole for the Briscoe version of the World Title, telling Cole to "leave his belt at home". After what happened on ROH TV over the weekend Cole has finally accepted Jay's challenge and it is under 2 weeks away! Briscoe has yet to be pinned since returning to action in November and Cole has been his number 1 target since returning. Every interaction between these two men has been intense, but this might become the most brutal encounter yet! Tickets for State of the Art are available right HERE.
 
 
- AJ Styles returns to ROH TV this weekend!
 
 
- From the moment Chris Hero returned to ROH at Final Battle 2013, he's had his eyes and elbow locked on Adam Cole and the ROH World Title. Moments before the main event at Wrestling's Finest there was an announcement that if anyone could pin Adam Cole in the 3 Way Elimination Tag then they would earn an ROH Title match at the 12th Anniversary on February 21st. Hero teamed with "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin and won the match by pinning Adam Cole earning his opportunity in Philadelphia on February 21st! For what it is worth, The Decade is not happy with this decision as they are the ones who made sure that Hero lost his first match back against Kevin Steen to keep him away from the title scene due to "principle." Add Hardy's alliance to Cole and Hero has the odds against him going into the match even though he, along with Elgin, are the only ones to have beat Cole since he won the ROH Championship. Get your tickets to the 12th Anniversary HERE
 
- As a bonus if you buy tickets for both nights of the 12th Anniversary at the same time, then you will get the tickets for Saturday night for 50% OFF! Tickets MUST be purchased IN THE SAME TRANSACTION for discount to apply. More details and match announcements will be updated.
 
- After the challenge issued by Hardy, you can expect "Unbreakable " Michael Elgin vs. Matt Hardy to be officially signed in the coming days.
 
 
- Jay Lethal still has the TV Title in his sights but he recently issued a challenge to "The Phenomenal One" AJ Styles.
 
- The 2014 Ring of Honor Top Prospect Tournament continues on ROH TV this weekend with Andrew Everett vs. Hanson in a semi-final bout with the finals (taped in Pittsburgh last Saturday) scheduled to air on February 8th. Speaking of Everett, be sure to catch his encounter with Cedric Alexander from Wrestling's Finest. Everett was so impressive that he has been signed for Night 2 of the 12th Anniversary on Saturday, February 22nd in Philadelphia!
 
- Cliff Compton tried to interfere during "Mr. Wrestling" Kevin Steen vs. Kyle O'Reilly last Saturday however Steen was able to somehow overlook the distraction and made O'Reilly submit for the victory. After the bout, Compton and Steen got into an extended brawl with each man fighting around the ringside area before Compton hit Steen with a Superfly Splash off of the top through a table at ringside! Compton knows that Steen was on his way to a title shot after Final Battle 2013 and he has a strong desire to block his potential shot in an attempt to make his life miserable. "I have a new years resolution this year," stated Compton. "You thought you had your problems with Bennett & Maria behind you and you could move on to focus on the ROH World Title... But I'm here... whether anybody likes it or not... I'm in your way... Thank you to Maria and Michael for letting me handle what they CHOSE not to destroy for good. Kevin Steen you are a pig and will be slaughtered."
