All of your favorite ROH stars will compete in one of wrestling’s most-notable venues, highlighted by the return of Atlanta’s own, the ROH World Champion as of press time, “The American Nightmare” Cody!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In addition to the current ROH World Champion Cody, the current ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, Jay Lethal, “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Man” Silas Young, “The Villain” Marty Scurll, Kenny King, Bully Ray, the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions War Machine, and so many more will be in action!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In Atlanta, a partnership between two long-time, former friends EXPLODES!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>CHEESEBURGER vs. WILL FERRARA</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Sometimes, the strongest bonds are forged by those who have the most in common. For Cheeseburger and Will Ferrara, their career paths were strikingly similar. After years of being told things like “No just means not now” and “Your time will come”, both have forged their own paths.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For Cheeseburger, hard work and persistence after being told he couldn’t led to two appearances in the Tokyo Dome and a win on Pay Per View teaming with his mentor, the legendary Jushin “Thunder” Liger. For Ferrara, eight years of training from age 15 led to being the runner up in the 2015 Top Prospect Tournament, a ROH contract, and a resume that would make any similarly aged wrestler blush.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The two stars in their mid-20s formed a partnership around working hard and respecting professional wrestling. For months, the two won Future of Honor Friday bouts and competed on ROH television before answering the open challenge of the ROH World Tag Team Champion Young Bucks.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It was the opportunity of a lifetime for two stars so early in their careers. But, like their initial friendship, one that grew even stronger as the two became the trainers at the ROH Dojo, timing was everything. In a match against Chris Sabin and Jonathan Gresham on ROH TV, cracks began to show after what looked like a simple miscommunication. ‘Burger and Ferrara would pick up wins against The Carnies and The Fraternity and all appeared to be well.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But jealousy began to show even more in a Six Man Mayhem Instant Reward bout in Dearborn. Cheeseburger earned a ROH World Television Championship match with a win in a match that also included Ferrara. In a ROH TV loss to War Machine, Cheeseburger showed the heart of a lion and fighting spirit while Ferrara watched his partner get beat to a pulp. But they swore the partnership was stronger than ever.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>They surprised the live Chicago crowd when they answered the Young Bucks open challenge. Ultimately, Ferrara and ‘Burger lost and the night concluded with Ferrara turning his back on his partner, striking with a low-blow. Since then, Ferrara has taken every opportunity to attack ‘Burger, including doing so at an autograph signing in Concord, NC. Following a soon-to-air television bout, Cheeseburger challenged Ferrara and the match between the two has been signed for Atlanta!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The friendship is fractured and ‘Burger is seeking revenge. But, who will emerge victorious?&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>International Television Taping: Saturday Night at Center Stage</div><div>Local Time: Saturday, Aug 26, 2017 07:00pm EDT</div><div>Center Stage</div><div>1374 West Peachtree St NW</div><div>Atlanta, Georgia 30309</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ALREADY SIGNED:</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>HONOR RUMBLE – WINNER GETS A SHOT LATER THAT NIGHT IN ATLANTA</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“THE VILLAIN” MARTY SCURLL vs. ROCKY ROMERO</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>CHEESEBURGER vs. WILL FERRARA</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Signed to Appear:</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD CHAMPION: CODY</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS: YOUNG BUCKS (NICK &amp; MATT JACKSON)</div><div>IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS WAR MACHINE (RAY ROWE &amp; HANSON)</div><div>BULLY RAY</div><div>MARK &amp; JAY BRISCOE</div><div>MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (ALEX SHELLEY &amp; CHRIS SABIN)</div><div>JAY LETHAL</div><div>ADAM PAGE</div><div>KENNY KING</div><div>GUERILLAS OF DESTINY (TAMA TONGA &amp; TONGA LOA)</div><div>“PRO WRESTLING’S LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG</div><div>BEER CITY BRUISER</div><div>JAY WHITE</div><div>JOSH WOODS</div><div>JONATHAN GRESHAM</div><div>FLIP GORDON</div><div>TEMPURA BOYZ (SHO &amp; YO)</div><div>VINNY MARSEGLIA &amp; TK O'RYAN</div><div>SHANE TAYLOR</div><div>PUNISHMENT MARTINEZ</div> Wed, 16 Aug 2017 02:13:41 +0000 Chris Hall 521111 at http://rohwrestling.com Meet and Greet Details for Saturday Night at Center Stage http://rohwrestling.com/news/meet-and-greet-details-saturday-night-center-stage <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/sncs-rotor">sncs-rotor</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>On Saturday, August 26th, Ring of Honor will be hosting a special meet and greet autograph session prior to SATURDAY NIGHT AT CENTER STAGE at Center Stage in Atlanta, GA!

He asked the crowd if they respect Daniels and all the contributions the two of them have made to the business. The fans reacted positively, but Kazarian said they were lying. He said the fans may never again see Daniels in an ROH ring because they don’t deserve to. Kazarian said the fans would rather throw streamers and start stupid chants than watch the best wrestling on the planet. He said his mission is to destroy everything the fans like about ROH because -- and he chanted this -- “You deserve it.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Punishment Martinez vs. Flip Gordon</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The 5-foot-10, 189-pound Gordon used a multitude of flips to keep the 6-foot-6, 272-pound Martinez off balance. Gordon landed a spectacular frog splash, but the monstrous Martinez remarkably kicked out at one. Gordon later hit a backflip Samoan Drop and Asai Moonsault, but he couldn’t put away his larger foe. He then set up for Kinder Surprise on the top rope, but Martinez blocked it and hit South of Heaven off the top for the victory. As Martinez was about to head backstage, his nemesis, Jay White, suddenly appeared and met him head-on. White, who had been jumped by Martinez on multiple occasions, got some payback before security seperated them. It’s clear the issue between Martinez and White is far from over.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Kenny King Says He Is Ready For Kushida</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>King said he’s totally focused on Kushida and winning the ROH World Television Title tonight. He said time’s up for Kushida and it’s time for the King to reign.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Colt Cabana Interviews The Tempura Boyz</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Cabana attempted to conduct a backstage interview with Sho and Yo, but they responded to him in Japanese, so Cabana cut the interview short.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Cheeseburger vs. Rhett Titus</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Titus attacked Cheeseburger before the bell and remained on the offensive once the match began. The popular Cheeseburger rallied, however, and he had the momentum after hitting Shotay on Titus. But Cheeseburger’s former friend Will Ferrara came down to the ring and distracted him. Titus took advantage and hit the Doggy Splash for the win.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>ROH World Champion Cody Tells the Competition: ‘Prove Me Wrong’</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Putting his twist on a line from a famous Johnny Cash song, Cody said: “I’ve been everywhere, man … and I’ve beaten everybody.” &nbsp;He said there’s an expression that there’s always somebody who’s tougher or working harder than you, but it doesn’t apply to him. “Go ahead, prove me wrong,” he said.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Dalton Castle Confronts Colt Cabana</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Cabana, who was doing color commentary for the broadcast, spoke with lead announcer Ian Riccaboni about wanting to team with The Tempura Boyz to face Castle and The Boys. Castle, accompanied by The Boys, came out and said that if that’s a match Cabana wants, they not only accept, but they’ll also put their ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title on the line. Cabana agreed to the match, and Castle said they should do it next week. The match was made official.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>ROH World Television Title Match: Kushida (Champion) vs. Kenny King</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>These two talented competitors were having an outstanding back-and-forth match before it was ruined by Bullet Club’s Marty Scurll and Adam Page, who hit the ring and attacked both men while Kushida had the Hoverboard Lock on King. The interference resulted in the match being thrown out. After order was restored, King told Kushida they have to meet again for the title in the future, but he said it would be his honor if Kushida would team with him now to “put a beat-down on these two.” Kushida agreed, and an impromptu tag match was sanctioned.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Kenny King and Kushida vs. Bullet Club’s Marty Scurll and Adam Page</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Just moments after being opponents, King and Kushida worked well together as partners. Scurll and Page were up to the challenge, however, and Scurll nearly won the match for his team after hitting a powerbomb on Kushida for a near fall. After King was tagged in, he stunned Scurll with a springboard blockbuster and later hit a spinning heel kick into a Royal Flush on Page for the win. After the match, King and Kushida shook hands in a display of mutual respect.</div> Tue, 15 Aug 2017 18:56:54 +0000 Chris Hall 520931 at http://rohwrestling.com Honor Rumble Signed for Saturday Night at Center Stage http://rohwrestling.com/news/honor-rumble-signed-saturday-night-center-stage <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Winner gets a shot at the ROH World Title </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/sncs-rotor">sncs-rotor</a> </div> </div> </div> <!--break--><div><br />The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to historic Center Stage for an international TV taping featuring the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can provide!
