An eight-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, Mark Briscoe has always kept his eye on the World Television Championship, a well-documented goal of his. And a win over one of the hottest, up and coming high flyers may do a lot to put Briscoe on the championship path.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But despite the experience edge, Briscoe will absolutely have his hands full. Smile has engaged in feuds and has emerged victorious against former ROH World Television Champions “The Villain” Marty Scurll and “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay. Smile has a variety of aerial moves of his own that make him a tough draw and knows that a win over Briscoe could put him directly in line for his own ROH World Television Championship shot!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">Who will win this battle between these two stars?

While the record may have surprised some, those who follow pro wrestling in the UK know that Samuels was the inaugural RevPro British Heavyweight Champion and is one of the UK’s best talents.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>And he has an opportunity to take advantage of an opportune situation and score a victory of three of ROH’s biggest stars on Night One of the War of the Worlds UK Tour in London when he takes on Bully Ray, Jay Lethal, and Silas Young in London!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Normally, someone who is relatively unknown may seem like a tremendous underdog in the situation Samuels is in. But consider the state of his opponents: Bully Ray, still shocked at his six man tag team teammates, Jay Lethal, injured and potentially not at 100%, and Silas Young, a man committed to trying to put Lethal out of action for good.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Sounds like a pretty opportune situation for Samuels after all.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But it is dangerous to view a match with three of ROH’s top stars in that lens. Bully Ray is a certified legend who holds a victory over Silas Young at Masters of the Craft while Young beat Lethal the night before at ROH Unauthorized. Lethal beat Young in the rematch at the Best in the World Pay Per View but Young and the Beer City Bruiser viciously attacked Lethal following the bout! Lethal competed in the NJPW US Title Tournament valiantly with broken ribs but the damage had been done. Additionally, this match will be the FIRST time Bully Ray and Lethal are in the same ROH ring!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Can Lethal get revenge? Will Young put Lethal out of commission once and for all? Will Bully Ray pick up another huge victory in singles action and forge his own path in ROH? Or will Sha Samuels take advantage of the state of his opponents and become 4-0 against ROH stars? <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">Join us to find out!&nbsp;</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kick off event Thursday, August 17!

One of the biggest, baddest stars in ROH recently inserted himself in a Six Man Mayhem match and called his shot against one of the most intriguing prospects in years. But why?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION KUSHIDA vs. KENNY KING</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The War of the Worlds Tour proved to be a turning point for KUSHIDA. KUSHIDA began the tour by defeating former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and ended the tournament by defeating the ROH World Television Champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll to capture his first Ring of Honor championship!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In the ensuing weeks and months, KUSHIDA proved those victories were no flukes, winning five win or go-home matches en route to his second Best of Super Juniors Tournament win in three years, his fifth IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, and a resounding victory in a rematch against the former champion Scurll at Best in the World!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KUSHIDA defended his championship against the talented young competitor from New Zealand Jay White on last week’s episode of ROH TV. After a grueling bout, KUSHIDA heads to Concord to take on the number one contender, Kenny King!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>King has gained notoriety from his appearance on TV’s The Bachelorette and with that, the veteran star has had a career resurgence. King defeated the most ROH stars out of anyone in the Gauntlet for the Gold, bolstering his credentials heading into a Four Corner Survival Match to earn a TV Title shot. With the Rebellion disbanding, King has wasted no time picking a direction during a career-crossroads and is seeing his gamble on himself pay massive dividends. King defeated Mark Briscoe, Beer City Bruiser, and Chris Sabin on ROH TV and earned a ROH World Television Title shot!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KUSHIDA versus King is a first-time match up, pitting one of the fastest, crispest, most-technically sound stars in the world against a strong, explosive competitor just beginning to reach the peak of his career. &nbsp;<br />&nbsp;</div><div>Kenny King will get his shot at singles gold in Concord – will King leave North Carolina the new TV Champion? <a href="https://www1.ticketmaster.com/event/0E005295D79FFB55">Join us to find out!</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="https://www1.ticketmaster.com/event/0E005295D79FFB55">There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of ROH LIVE!

Leon learned many of those characteristics from her mentor and her first professional opponent, Jenny Rose.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The two have formed a mentor/mentee relationship and Jenny has accepted Mandy as a contemporary. They will face one another in a match based on respect for one another on an upcoming Women of Honor television episode, but in Concord, they will look to add to the win they picked up against Faye Jackson and Sumie Sakai in front of the largest crowd in ROH history at Supercard of Honor XI when they team to face Sumie and the debuting Brandi Rhodes!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Sumie has been a key figure in the history of Women of Honor, making her ROH debut in 2002 and picking up singles and tag team wins regularly! Sumie teams with the debuting Brandi Rhodes, wife of Ring of Honor World Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody in Concord to take on two women that know each other so well that they finish one each other's sentences!

With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. And in London at York Hall, two ROH stars will meet for the first time in singles competition since 2010!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>JAY BRISCOE vs. KENNY KING</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Former two-time ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe has been an absolute mad man. And the madness should surprise few: for a man that had a streak of over two years not being pinned or submitted, Briscoe has been pinned twice in multi-man tag team matches in situations that have not been his fault, including the incident that sent him over the edge initially, a misting at the hands of BUSHI thanks to interference from the Boys.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Briscoe’s attitude has gotten even more crazed following the loss of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team titles at Best in the World.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Which makes this one-on-one bout against Kenny King either the best or the worst time to face him!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>King has had no ring rust since returning from the Bachelorette and the disbandment of the Rebellion, securing the most eliminations at Gauntlet for the Gold and winning a Four Corners Survival Match to earn a ROH World TV Title shot. With clear mind and focus, King looks to continue to move up the singles ladder and a win against the former two-time ROH World Champion would do just that.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But these two are no strangers to one another. While they have not met in singles action in just under seven years (Glory by Honor IX), these two will be forever linked in tag team competition. King and then-partner Rhett Titus defeated the Briscoes in one of the most violent Ladder Wars ever to take place at Death Before Dishonor IX. And it was at All-Star Extravaganza VII that King shocked the world and returned with Titus to answer the Briscoes open challenge and defeat them!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Can King take advantage of the vulnerability and fragility of the mind of Jay Briscoe or will Briscoe be able to hone this aggression to pick up a big singles victory against one of ROH’s hottest stars?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Adding extra intrigue, ROHWrestling.com has confirmed that should King win the Television Championship in his opportunity in Concord, NC, this match will be contested for the Television title!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kick off event </a><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">Thursday</a><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817"> August 17!

After scoring an impressive victory over former six-man tag champions The Briscoes and Bully Ray on last week’s show, The Bucks and Page want a title match against current champions Dalton Castle and The Boys. Claiming that Bullet Club is“in the office,” Nick Jackson said to consider that match booked.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Six-Man Mayhem Match: Marty Scurll vs. Josh Woods vs. Vinny Marseglia vs. Will Ferrara vs. El Terrible vs. Frankie Kazarian</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Woods, the 2017 ROH Top Prospect Winner, was rolling until Shane Taylor came out and blindsided him for no apparent reason. Taylor KO’d Woods with a big right hand, costing the rising star any chance of winning the match. (Woods will have an opportunity to gain a measure of revenge when he faces Taylor at Queen City Excellence, an international TV taping in Concord, N.C., July 29). Later in the match, Kazarian appeared on his way to winning after hitting a slingshot cutter on Marseglia, but Scurll tossed Kazarian out of the ring and stole the pin. Bullet Club’s “Villain” had done nothing in the match to that point except break up pins, and his strategy paid off.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Christopher Daniels Answers Cody’s Challenge</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Last week, ROH World Champion Cody challenged former champion Daniels to a two-out-of-three falls championship rematch, and this week Daniels accepted. Daniels said losing the title to Cody at Best in the World last month lit a fire in him, and his rage caused ROH officials to send him home to think about his actions. Daniels said he did exactly that, and he realized that temperamental outbursts are not the way to go. He said he’s still the smartest man in the room and he will take back the title he never should’ve lost.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>Beer City Bruiser (w/Silas Young) vs Brian Milonas</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Milonas, the near-400-pounder who was a 2017 ROH Top Prospect Tournament semifinalist, dominated early until a distraction by Young at ringside allowed Bruiser to gain the advantage. Milonas rallied, however, and the “King Pin” came within an eyelash of scoring the upset. Milonas went for a splash off the middle rope in an attempt to finish off Bruiser, but Bruiser rolled out of the way and then hit a frog splash to escape with the win. After the match, Young entered the ring and updated his “Jay Lethal is off TV board” to reflect that it’s been 29 days since Lethal, who was injured by Young at Best in the World, has been off ROH TV.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><strong>ROH World Television Title Match: Kushida (Champion) vs. Jay White</strong></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kushida has been on a major roll, winning the ROH World TV Title in May and then capturing the Best of the Super Juniors tournament for the second time in three years less than three weeks later, but he was facing a stiff challenge in White, who has scored victories over the likes of Daniels, Donovan Dijak, and Punishment Martinez in ROH. Kushida -- who also is the reigning, five-time IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, targeted the New Zealand native’s left arm throughout the match. When White hit the Kiwi Krusher in the latter stages of the bout, he couldn’t fully execute the finishing maneuver due to his weakened arm, and that allowed Kushida to kick out at the very last second. Kushida went to score a hard-fought, successful title defense after hitting a Hoverboard Lock off the top rope and following up with Back to the Future. After the match, Kenny King, who recently earned a future ROH World TV Title shot by winning a Four Corner Survival Match, entered the ring. He raised Kushida’s arm and then grabbed the ROH World TV Title belt while Kushida held it in his hand.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Tue, 25 Jul 2017 19:35:27 +0000 Chris Hall 511581 at http://www.rohwrestling.com This weekend’s episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling highlights the WOMEN OF HONOR! http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/weekend-s-episode-ring-honor-wrestling-highlights-women-honor <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/woh-rotor">woh rotor</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>&nbsp;</div><div>For the third time, ROH fans will see an action-packed hour featuring the best in female professional wrestling from around the globe, highlighting the stars of Women of Honor, a woman making her US television debut from STARDOM, and ROH COO Joe Koff joins Ian Riccaboni on the commentary team to bring his unique perspective to the action.</div><div><!--break--></div><div><br />Here is a brief preview of what you will see on your Sinclair Broadcast affiliates, CHARGE! TV, Fite.TV, ROHWrestling.com, or however you view Ring of Honor each and every week!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>MAIN EVENT</div><div>“THE GATEKEEPER” KELLY KLEIN vs. KAREN Q vs. “THE VIRTUOSA” DEONNA PURRAZZO</div><div>For well over 500 days, “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein dominated all opponents that were put in front of her. Kelly used her devastating “End of the Match” guillotine choke to tap out or pass out all of her opponents. At least, until she met “The Virtuosa” Deonna Purrazzo at Supercard of Honor in front of the biggest crowd in Ring of Honor history.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Deonna gave Kelly her biggest test yet, ultimately tapping out Kelly in the center of the ring. Unfortunately, referee Paul Turner did not see Kelly tapping out and Kelly would win with a Northern Lights suplex, keeping her undefeated streak above water.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But Kelly’s streak would not last much longer. Karen Q excelled in a Ring of Honor tryout camp and in a Future of Honor bout, earning herself a shot in Women of Honor. Karen is a training partner of Deonna and the travel and workout together. But despite her allegiance to one of the top stars in Women of Honor, few gave Karen a chance to win in her very first Women of Honor bout against Kelly.</div><div>Until lightning struck.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Karen was giving Kelly all she had until the fight moved to the outside. The Virtuosa made her way to the ring late into a 20-count, gathering the attention of Kelly just long enough for Karen to beat the 20 count and to declare Kelly the loser for the very first time in her Women of Honor career! Kelly looks for revenge while two training partners look to be the first to pin or submit Kelly in this Women of Honor Main Event!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>MANDY LEON vs. JENNY ROSE</div><div>In her very first professional wrestling match, “The Exotic Goddess” Mandy Leon took on a woman she considered a friend and mentor, someone she trained with at the ROH Dojo Jenny Rose. It was in Newville, PA where the two met. Jenny defeated Mandy, but Mandy used the experience to launch her career.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>There were no hard feelings following the match: Mandy would continue to train at the Dojo, finding success in Women of Honor while Jenny would travel to Japan and immerse herself in a dojo lifestyle where she did nothing but eat, sleep, and breath wrestling. Mandy looks up to Jenny like a big sister, as a role model, and as someone that has created a path that is leading Mandy to her first trip to Japan. But, the two recently had a misunderstanding during a bout between Jenny and “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kelly and Jenny took their brawl to the outside. Mandy, who was joining Ian Riccaboni on commentary, saw Kelly grab a chair. The chair triggered memories of the dishonor Mandy had cleansed from Women of Honor, taking her back to the first-ever No Disqualification Women of Honor bout that occurred in the same building just months earlier. Mandy grabbed the chair from Kelly and went to deliver a forearm when Kelly moved and Mandy struck her friend. Can these friends put aside their differences and have a match focused solely on honor?&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>THE US TELEVISION DEBUT OF KRIS WOLF</div><div>On the Best in the World Pay Per View, viewers saw highlights of Kris Wolf’s Women of Honor debut, picking up a win with Sumie Sakai in a tag team bout! On this Women of Honor special, Wolf, then the STARDOM High Speed Champion, defends against her tag team partner and Japanese ally in Oedo Tai to kick things off!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Thank you to all fans that have made Women of Honor a tremendous success, viewed weekly in over 100 countries on Women of Honor Wednesdays!

One of the biggest, baddest stars in ROH recently inserted himself in a Six Man Mayhem match and called his shot against one of the most intriguing prospects in years. But why?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>SHANE TAYLOR vs. 2017 TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT WINNER JOSH “THE GOODS” WOODS</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>This past week on Ring of Honor Wrestling, Josh Woods, with a ROH World Television Title shot still in tow from winning the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament, had an opportunity to pick up a win against five international wrestling stars, including the legendary El Terrible and former ROH World Television Champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The tide was turning in the four-time All-American’s direction with Woods fighting off Kazarian and Will Ferrara when Shane Taylor emerged out of nowhere and blindsided Woods with a devastating clothesline. After a splash, Taylor left Woods laying in a heap with a right cross.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Based on the actions of Taylor, Woods has asked the ROH Board of Directors for a bout against the 300+ lbs menace. And it has been signed! In his first match since the Rebellion disbanded, Shane Taylor will go one on with the former national champion and this time, Taylor won’t be able to sneak up on Woods!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Following the ambush in Lowell, Woods is eager to get Taylor in the ring. But even Woods doesn’t know why Taylor attacked him in the first place! Could Taylor be jealous of Woods? Or was he looking to prove a point? Taylor will have the size, strength, and experience advantage against Woods in Concord but Woods has proved, like in his match against Kingpin Milonas, that he can chop down larger opponents with precision submission technique like his Deenda Bar! Who will emerge victorious? Join us in Concord to find out!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of ROH LIVE!

And that is the former champion’s own fault. Before an international television taping, Daniels, with Addiction tag team partner Frankie Kazarian by his side, said comments too distasteful and unsavory to air on Ring of Honor Wrestling to a live crowd in Lowell.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But the former champion and his partner, coming off a violent win in a vicious strap match against Adam Page, must regroup in time to travel to the UK because there, they will face two CMLL legends!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since the announcement of the CMLL-NJPW-ROH partnership, the legendary Ultimo Guerrero has become a popular, familiar competitor to ROH fans. The former CMLL World Heavyweight Champion has held titles around the globe and has been engaged in a rivalry with Matt Taven and his Kingdom dating to the second-round of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team title tournament. Guerrero will team with his long-time tag team partner Rey Bucanero, a man who has held the CMLL World Lightweight Championship and is a four-time CMLL World Tag Team Champion!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Can the Addiction get back on the same page, regrouping and clearing their minds ahead of this bout against two CMLL legends or will Guerrero and Bucanero pick up a huge win!
