Top competitors from Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro-Wrestling and CMLL will do battle in the biggest night of hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action in Ring of Honor history!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The ROH Board of Directors has already announced several big matches and first-time appearances from New Japan and CMLL stars! We're excited to announce THREE Women of Honor matches that will begin at 5:15 PM, following the conclusion of Festival of Honor!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>CMLL LUCHADORA SHOWCASE</div><div>LA AMAPOLA vs. MARCELA</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Two of the most decorated luchadoras in CMLL history head to Supercard of Honor ready to rekindle their long-standing rivalry! Marcela is one of Mexico's most popular and enduring stars. Debuting at age 14, Marcela has been beloved since her debut, holding the coveted CMLL World Women's Championship four times, more reigns and total days than anyone else. But it is Amapola that held the championship longest in one reign, holding it just once but for nearly four years straight!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It was Marcela that ended La Amapola's history-making place at the top of the Mexican women's wrestling and the villainous La Amapola has not forgotten! La Amapola has put life and limb, mask and hair on the line! But with no mask or championship in hand, La Amapola's bad blood for Marcela is all she need to motivate her in this Luchadora Showcase!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KELLY KLEIN vs. DEONNA PURRAZZO</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>"The Gatekeeper" Kelly Klein will enter Supercard of Honor with an undefeated streak of 534 days. But if she wants to make it to 535, she'll have to defeat her biggest challenge yet, "The Virtuosa" Deonna Purrazzo!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For the last three months, Deonna has immersed herself in Japan, training and competing in STARDOM! Deonna, whose reputation for seeking challenges around the country has now been expanded to the globe, faces a woman who has choked out ODB, Taeler Hendrix, Sumie Sakai, and more with her devastating guillotine choke she calls "The End of the Match".&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In preparation for this bout, Deonna has focused on perfecting her Fujiwara Armbar with training with fellow US standout and UFC competitor Shayna Baszler while in Stardom. Deonna is rapidly gaining the tools and experience to defeat Kelly - will she be the first to stop the "Pretty Bad Ass" in Women of Honor competition?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>MANDY LEON &amp; JENNY ROSE vs. SUMIE SAKAI &amp; FAYE JACKSON</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Some matches alter career paths. Those matches take a toll, usually physical but sometimes psychological on the stars that compete in them. For Mandy Leon, her No DQ loss to Taeler Hendrix not only effected her standing among the Women of Honor, but it may have permanently changed the way she thinks about pro wrestling.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Leon teams with long time friend and training partner Jenny Rose to face the polar opposite of the darkness that nearly consumed her - Women of Honor's Ray of Sunshine Sumie Sakai and her protégée, the vivacious Faye Jackson! Sumie and Faye look to take advantage of their opponents' state of mind and pick up their first victory as a team in Women of Honor!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.thelakelandcenter.com/events/supercardofhonor">The Women of Honor kick things off in sunny Florida at Supercard of Honor at 5:15! And don't forget: you can meet the stars of Women of Honor at Festival of Honor at 2 PM! Time is of the essence! Be there and be a part of the BIGGEST ROH crowd in history!

We're excited to announce two matches and our color commentator for the VOD and DVD release!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>"HEAVY METAL REBEL" FRANKIE KAZARIAN vs. PUNISHMENT MARTINEZ</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>At the 15th Anniversary Pay Per View, Frankie Kazarian won a Six Man Mayhem match to earn an opportunity to challenge for the ROH World Television Championship. But in that match, it was Punishment Martinez's actions in that match that would trend worldwide on Twitter. The 6'7" monster flew high and flexed hard and captured the imagination of the pro wrestling world. The two will meet for the first time in Lakeland!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kaz had a banner night in Sin City. At 15th Anniversary, Kaz earned a ROH World Television title opportunity and proved he and best friend ROH World Champion Christopher Daniels were the smartest men in the room, helping Daniels outsmart Bullet Club and capture the title.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But how smart is signing a match with a man with the size, strength, agility, and explosiveness of Punishment Martinez?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Martinez has proved he is a man that walks alone. Spurning BJ Whitmer, Kevin Sullivan, and Los Ingobernables de Japon, Martinez is a monster who has shown that he could easily become a title contender. Martinez is bent on destruction and is a signature win away from a championship opportunity! Kaz and Martinez will meet one on one for the first time in Lakeland!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>THE KINGDOM (MATT TAVEN &amp; VINNY MARSEGLIA) vs. BEER CITY BRUISER &amp; "PRO WRESTLING'S LAST REAL MAN" SILAS YOUNG</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since the ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championship was announced, Beer City Bruiser and Silas Young have searched far and wide for the perfect partner. The two have auditioned stars like Bull James and Cheeseburger but ultimately decided to bring a surprise partner to Lakeland. Due to TK O'Ryan's graphic injury, their ROH World Six Man Tag Team title match has been changed to a basic tag team match. Bruiser and Young won Tag Wars 2016 and are on a roll in tag team action - while they will miss out on an opportunity to win gold in Florida, a tag team win will put them toward the head of the pack in the deepest tag team division in the world!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>COLOR COMMENTARY FOR THE VOD AND DVD WILL BE PROVIDED BY... COLT CABANA!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Due to the overwhelmingly positive feedback and fan demand following the 15th Anniversary Pay Per View, COLT CABANA returns to the broadcast booth with Ian Riccaboni and Kevin Kelly &nbsp;to provide color commentary for the biggest Supercard of Honor, ever!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.thelakelandcenter.com/events/supercardofhonor">Time is of the essence!

Adam Cole's record-breaking third ROH World Championship reign came to a screeching halt at 15th Anniversary when destiny interfered and Christopher Daniels claimed the title following his fifteen-year odyssey.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Cole has descended into madness following his loss and has become incessant in his pursuit of a championship rematch. Each day, Cole calls and emails the Board of Directors. With the ROH World Title match already set between Daniels and Dalton Castle, the Board of Directors could not offer Cole a World title rematch. But, they could offer a first-time title match!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION "THE VILLAIN" MARTY SCURLL vs. ADAM COLE</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The 12th ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll captured the TV Title in his first weekend with ROH. Since then, his "Reign of Wickedness" has caused a spot of bother for the entire ROH roster. Scurll is the next in a line of champions like Jay Lethal, Tomohiro Ishii, and Bobby Fish that have elevated the ROH World Television Title to the level of the ROH World Championships.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>And it is precisely this reason why the only three-time ROH World Champion has found this particular opportunity so intoxicatingly exhilarating.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For Cole, the opportunity to defeat "The Villain", one of the premier young stars in the world, is an opportunity for Cole to defeat someone he begrudgingly considers someone at his level and recapture a title that was once his.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For Scurll, Cole exists as a chance to prove he is the premier wrestler in the world and to deny Bullet Club an opportunity to the fill their golden war chest, gold that powers their pro wrestling empire that influences merchandise and ticket sales. The Superkliq of Cole have shown signs of dissension on their YouTube channel - with the Bucks gold-less, Cole has a chance to be the first to strike back and win the Television Title for the second time!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For the very first time, "The Villain" and Cole will do battle one on one and the only way to see this dream match is to be there LIVE in Lakeland!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Can Cole satisfy his championship obsession or will the Brill Bruiser continue his Reign of Wickedness?

And now, the ROH Board of Directors has signed a tag team match-up with four of the world’s best young stars!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>INTERNATIONAL TAG TEAM SHOWDOWN!</div><div>WILL OSPREAY &amp; VOLADOR JR. vs. DRAGON LEE &amp; JAY WHITE</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>CMLL star Volador Jr. makes his ROH debut in Lakeland, FL and he is teaming with someone who knows how to create a first impression! In his very first ROH match, “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay shocked the world and captured the ROH World Television title from Bobby Fish. The duo of Volador Jr. and Ospreay will take to the skies against the team of CMLL star Dragon Lee and Jay White in Lakeland!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Volador Jr. comes from a long line of luchadors. The son of Super Parka and the nephew of La Parka, Volador Jr. has created his own path, winning over fans around the globe, competing with CMLL and in New Japan Pro-Wrestling in their joint FantasticaMania events. He teams with fellow fan favorite Will Ospreay but questions have arisen if the two can coexist. Ospreay defeated Volador Jr. in the final match of their block in the 2016 Best of the Super Juniors, eliminating Volador Jr. and propelling Ospreay to the block win, the finals, and ultimately the tournament.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Standing across the ring are Dragon Lee and Jay White! Dragon Lee recently continued his feud with the former KAMAITACHI (now known as Hiromu Takahashi) over the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship at New Beginning. Dragon Lee is no stranger to Ospreay in the United States as the two have competed in three-way bouts at Final Battle and on Ring of Honor Wrestling and the two were recently on opposite sides of a six man tag team match at Fantastica Mania.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Jay White began his ROH career with a near-nine-month undefeated streak and has been pegged by fans and observers alike as a future champion. White has been on the opposite side of the ring before from Ospreay in New Japan tag team competition but has teamed with Volador Jr.! White and Lee teamed together exactly once on the first night of Fantastica Mania 2016!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.thelakelandcenter.com/events/supercardofhonor">Four of the world’s best young stars take to the air in Lakeland, FL.

The Young Bucks accepted the challenge but The Hardys walked out as the new champions.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The next clash between The Hardys and The Young Bucks was a Triple Threat Vegas Street Fight that also involved Roppongi Vice on March 10 at the ROH 15th Anniversary pay-per-view. The Hardys retained their title in a violent spectacle that featured the use of tables, ladder, tacks and trash cans.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After the match, The Hardys seized The Young Bucks’ prized Superkick Party Title belts and left with them. The Young Bucks took to Twitter to ask The Hardys to hang their Superkick Party title belts above the ring for the Ladder Match at Supercard of Honor in addition to the ROH World Tag Team Title belts, and Matt Hardy quickly agreed to do so.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“Consider it done,” Hardy tweeted back. “I'll also hang a Hand of Bananas to give you Spot Monkeys some extra motivation. You two are gonna need it.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Will The Hardys retain the ROH Tag Team and Superkick Party belts, or will The Young Bucks again ascend to the top of ROH’s tag team division?<br />&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.thelakelandcenter.com/events/supercardofhonor">Join us in Lakeland, Fla., for the most spectacular Supercard of Honor ever to find out!</a></div> Fri, 17 Mar 2017 17:31:37 +0000 Chris Hall 468211 at http://www.rohwrestling.com Matches Announced for Tonight's TV Taping http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/matches-announced-tonights-tv-taping <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/taping-image">taping image</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>Following a historic 15th Anniversary Pay Per View, Ring of Honor returns to Sam’s Town Live! tonight with a 6 PM bell time for an international TV taping!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The ROH Board of Directors have signed the following matches for this action-packed night of the high-octane, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can provide!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE HARDYS (JEFF AND MATT) vs. THE BRISCOES (JAY AND MARK)</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>DAVEY BOY SMITH JR. vs. RAY ROWE</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>PUNISHMENT MARTINEZ vs. WARBEARD HANSON</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION “THE VILLAIN” MARTY SCURLL will defend his championship!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>PLUS!

King appeared to be on the verge of victory, but the resourceful White caught King in an inside cradle and scored the pinfall.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In a Six-Man Mayhem Match for a future shot at the ROH World Television Championship, Kazarian, the newest member of Bullet Club, emerged victorious over “Punishment” Damien Martinez, Hangman Page, Chris Sabin, Silas Young and Cheeseburger. Martinez put on a standout performance, but in the end Kazarian hit Ace of Spades on Cheeseburger for the win.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In a Top Contenders Match, Jay Lethal earned a hard-fought victory over Bobby Fish. Fish pushed the former ROH World Champion to the limit and came close on several occasions to either pinning him or making him tap out before Lethal ultimately hit Lethal Injection to win it.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The Kingdom (Matt Taven, Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan) successfully defended the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title against Dalton Castle and The Boys, but it may have been a costly victory. During the match, O’Ryan hit an Asai Moonsault on one of The Boys outside the ring, but he slammed his legs into the guardrail in doing so. O’Ryan was carried to the back after the match.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Lio Rush came within an eyelash of winning the ROH World Television Title from Marty Scurll before “The Villain” forced him to tap out to the Crossface Chickenwing. Rush entered the match with a bull’s-eye on him, as his left shoulder was taped up. Smelling blood in the water, Scurll -- who kicked out of Rush Hour and Dragon’s Call before securing the win -- targeted the shoulder throughout the match.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Bully Ray made his ROH in-ring debut a successful one, as he teamed with Jay and Mark Briscoe to defeat War Machine (Hanson and Ray Rowe) and Davey Boy Smith Jr. in a hard-hitting six-man tag match. Not surprisingly, War Machine and Smith had communication problems during the match, and it ended up costing them. Bully Ray scored the winning pinfall on Rowe after hitting 3D. Smith bickered with War Machine after the match and security had to step between them.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Matt and Jeff Hardy successfully defended their newly won ROH World Tag Team Title against The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Roppongi Vice (Rocky Romero and Beretta) in a Triple Threat Vegas Street Fight that proved to be a violent spectacle featuring tables, ladders, tacks and trash cans.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Showing a sadistic side, The Young Bucks hit a top-rope bulldog on Beretta onto the tacks, but that wasn’t the worst of it. They stuffed tacks into Beretta’s mouth and nailed him with a superkick. Romero then found himself on the receiving end of a Meltzer Driver onto the tacks.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The Young Bucks got a taste of their own medicine, however, when The Hardys hit stereo Twists of Fate on them into the tacks. The Hardys won the match after Jeff hit a Swanton off a ladder that sent Beretta through a table.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After the match, The Hardys grabbed The Young Bucks’ prized Superkick Party title belts and left with them.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In the main event, Christopher Daniels pinned Adam Cole to finally fulfill his dream of winning the ROH World Championship.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>At 46 years old, Daniels -- a 24-year veteran who competed in the main event on ROH’s first show back in 2002 -- became the oldest world champion in ROH history.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Cole, the only three-time ROH World Champion, was in control for the majority of the match, thanks in large part to a superkick outside the ring that sent Daniels head-first into the ring post, resulting in a large gash over the challenger’s right eye. Daniels proved resilient, however, as Cole was unable to put him away.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The turning point occurred when referee Todd Sinclair was temporarily incapacitated after being hit with an inadvertent superkick from Cole. Kazarian, Daniels’ longtime best friend who had recently turned on him to join Bullet Club, entered the ring.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It appeared that Kazarian was going to help Cole, but in a shocking twist, Kazarian tore off his Bullet Club t-shirt to reveal a Daniels’ t-shirt that had the word “Destiny” on it. Daniels took advantage of a stunned Cole and hit three successive Best Moonsault Evers for the win.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After the match, the new champion and Kazarian embraced and celebrated Daniels’ historic victory.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Don’t miss your chance to witness this amazing event by catching the replay of ROH 15th Anniversary.</div> Sat, 11 Mar 2017 12:05:11 +0000 Chris Hall 465796 at http://www.rohwrestling.com BREAKING: DANIELS WINS ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/breaking-daniels-wins-roh-world-championship <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/daniel-celebration-news">daniel-celebration-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>At the ROH 15th Anniversary PPV, “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels fulfilled his destiny by capturing the ROH World Championship defeating Adam Cole in the main event.
