SEPTEMBER 25TH NEWSWIRE

- Last Friday's DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR XI is now Available for On Demand Viewing at just $14.95 right HERE. Plus you can add the DVD for only $9.95 more!
 
 
- Ring of Honor returned home to Philadelphia & The National Guard Armory last Friday night, September 20th, for “Death Before Dishonor XI” and a new World Champion was crowned as the tournament came to an unforgettable end. Adam Cole defeated Michael Elgin honorably, in the middle of the ring, to become the 19th World Champion! Following the match, Jay Briscoe, like a man, presented the new champion with the title belt and even shook Cole's hand...but when Jay turned around, Cole super kicked him in the back of the head and then nailed Elgin with the title belt across the face in a dishonorable act that will never be forgotten!
 
- During the tournament finals last Friday night at “Death Before Dishonor XI”, Michael Elgin hit Cole with the Elgin Bomb but Todd Sinclair was clipped by Cole's feet on his way up which briefly rendered him unable to make a three count. Many people feel that this would have undoubtedly been the end if the referee was accidentally hit. After watching the replay, ROH officials do not hold Todd Sinclair accountable given the positioning in which both men abruptly turned during the course of the move. Cole's shoulders were obviously down for 3 seconds and the question remains whether Cole would have kicked out if the ref was in place?
 
- Former World Champion Jay Briscoe will be in the house THIS Saturday night Hopkins, MN! Jay will not be cleared to wrestle or eligible to return to ROH action until November but Jay will be there and he has something to say.
 
- Tommaso Ciampa spent the night before his wedding in the hospital as a result of Adam Cole repeatedly kicking Ciampa in the head while having him locked in the Figure Four. Ciampa's knee was aggravated plus he suffered a concussion during his war with Cole. Ciampa took it to the next level in Philly and will return to ROH action on October 26th at "Glory by Honor XII" in Chicago Ridge, IL.
 
- Before the show started last Friday night at “Death Before Dishonor XI”, Steve Corino entered the building demanding his reinstatement and was thrown out by security. Due to the entertainment value of Corino's delusional antics we will include this as an extra on the DVD release.
 
- Last Friday BJ Whitmer announced that he was choosing to end his in-ring wrestling career due to injury. BJ Whitmer is the toughest man in ROH history as well as a locker room leader. We will miss BJ and his contribution to ROH will never be forgotten. Fans that are wishing to send positive thoughts to BJ can send them to @BJ_Whitmer on Twitter.
 
- After Whitmer sadly announced his retirement from in-ring competition and thanked the fans last Friday, he did a surprising thing by calling Jimmy Jacobs out to the ring. BJ made it clear that without Jimmy Jacobs there would be no BJ Whitmer and despite their heated past, Jimmy has been by Whitmer's side since he was injured in Toronto. Whitmer explained that if Jimmy didn't stop Steve Corino during Steel Cage Warfare, then Corino would have set the ring on fire. Whitmer asked Match Maker Nigel McGuinness to give Jacobs an opportunity and not let the career of 2 men come to an end. Taken aback, Nigel acquiesced and stated that Jimmy would get his opportunity to prove himself starting the following night during the ROH TV Tapings. That night he faced off with Silas Young in a bout that will air on the October 26th edition of ROH TV and, as it turns out, it will mark the first of five Trial Series matches for Jacobs. Nigel said that should Jacobs be victorious in three of those five bouts, he will be awarded a World Title match on November 15th when ROH returns to Jimmy's home state of Michigan! When asked why he would offer Jacobs this fantastic opportunity at gold Nigel responded with "Any man who can get though 3 of the 5 men that he has to face in an honorable fashion deserves a shot. It is motivation for Jacobs to do the right thing and channel his energy toward honor."
 
 
- This week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV the ROH World Championship Tournament continues with the Semi-Finals from Philadelphia! "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin faces Kevin Steen and Adam Cole battles Tommaso Ciampa in a quest for the gold!
 
- THIS Saturday night Ring of Honor heads to The Eisenhower Center in Hopkins, MN for a big live event featuring a World Title Match, a TV Title Match, the debut of a highly demanded tag team, and a lot more! To view the entire card click HERE and you can get your tickets right now HERE.
 
 
- This Saturday the ROH TV Title will be defended in a Triple Threat match as champion Matt Taven defends against Davey Richards and Roderick Strong. Truth Martini recently went to Match Maker Nigel McGuinness petitioning that all of Taven's matches be TV title matches in order to light a fire under him. Nigel has agreed to make this Saturday's bout for the TV Title and if the title changes hands we will air it on ROH TV! Davey Richards & Roderick Strong have both defeated Taven at recent ROH events and we could easily see history made in this match. Also note that Truth Martini will NOT be in Minnesota!
 
 
- In the main event on Saturday night October 5th in Baltimore it will be a dream tag match pitting reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) against Michael Elgin & Jay Lethal and, at the request of the champions, the World Tag Team Titles WILL be on the line! Will the ROH Faithful in Baltimore see a repeat of Providence? Be there in Baltimore to find out by purchasing tickets HERE.
 
- JUST SIGNED for October 5th in Baltimore it will be ACH vs. Kevin Steen!
 
- Last Friday in Philadelphia, Cedric Alexander pinned ROH Tag Team Champion Kyle O'Reilly after hitting Overtime. C & C Wrestle Factory can get the job done but luck has not been on their side in Championship matches. It cannot be denied that every time they challenge for the belts there seems to be an unlucky distraction keeping them from attaining their ultimate dream.
