Danielson held the title for 462 days, the third-longest reign in company history, and he made 38 successful title defenses, a record he shares with current ROH matchmaker Nigel McGuinness.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Some of the challengers that Danielson defeated were: AJ Styles, Samoa Joe, Aries, KENTA, Daniels, Roderick Strong, Steve Corino, Chris Sabin, Naomichi Marufuji, Cabana and Homicide (who ultimately ended Danielson’s reign). Danielson also defeated ROH Pure Champion McGuinness to unify the titles.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Danielson was once again part of history in 2007, when he wrestled in the main event of ROH’s first pay-per-view, Respect is Earned. He and Morishima defeated McGuinness and KENTA.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Throughout his tenure in ROH, Danielson proved that his wrestling ability was matched only by his toughness.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">During an ROH World Title defense against Cabana in 2006, Danielson suffered a separated shoulder early in the match, but he fought through the pain and ended up going to a 60-minute draw.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Just three weeks later, Danielson returned to the ring and successfully defended the championship against KENTA in a classic encounter.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">In a match against then-ROH World Champion Morishima in 2007, Danielson suffered a detached retina from a punch to his eye, but he competed for another 15 minutes before he was defeated.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Danielson’s spectacular run in ROH came to an end on Sept. 26, 2009, when he beat McGuinness at Glory by Honor VIII: The Final Countdown in New York City.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">After the match, Danielson thanked the crowd at the Manhattan Center and exchanged hugs and handshakes with fans at ringside as his theme music, “The Final Countdown” played.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Danielson then got back in the ring and urged the fans to keep supporting the company. He asked that they chant “ROH” as he walked through the curtain one last time.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">As much as Danielson left an indelible mark on ROH, it was obvious that ROH also left an indelible mark on Bryan.</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><em>These classic Bryan Danielson moments and more can be seen in ROHWRESTLING.com's <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/vod/bryan-danielson-rise-glory">Ringside Area</a> or on ROH DVD releases : <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-final-countdown-dvd-2-disc-set">BRYAN DANIELSON: The Final Countdown</a> and&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-world-champion-2-disc-set">BRYAN DANIELSON: World Champion</a>.</em></div> Tue, 09 Feb 2016 16:36:51 +0000 ROH Wrestling 343601 at http://www.rohwrestling.com The Conquest Tour rolls into Philly on March 12th! http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/conquest-tour-rolls-philly-march-12th <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Saturday, March 12th - 2300 Arena </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/conquest-tour">CONQUEST TOUR</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">THE CONQUEST TOUR is coming to Philadelphia!&nbsp; On Saturday, March 12th, Ring of Honor returns to the historic 2300 Arena in South Philadelphia.&nbsp; This will be a huge event featuring all of your favorite ROH stars!&nbsp; The 2300 Arena has been an absolute landmark in the history of professional wrestling.&nbsp; And whenever Ring of Honor comes back home to Philadelphia, the night is always extra special!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">On March 12th, we will still be feeling the aftershocks from the 14TH ANNIVERSARY pay-per-view&nbsp; mere weeks before in Las Vegas.&nbsp; Who will be holding ROH gold?&nbsp; The entire landscape of Ring of Honor could change in Vegas, and Philadelphia gets to experience the aftermath!&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">But we can now confirm a MASSIVE addition to this stop of THE CONQUEST TOUR.&nbsp; KENNY OMEGA is signed to compete on March 12th!&nbsp; Last week, ROH made the shocking announcement that NJPW star Kenny Omega would finally return to Ring of Honor after years of speculation.&nbsp; We can now confirm that Omega will not only be in Las Vegas, "The Cleaner" is headed to Philadelphia as well!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Don't miss out on this rare opportunity to see Kenny Omega LIVE!&nbsp; To get your tickets to March 12th in Philadelphia, click <a href="https://2300arena.showare.com/ordertickets.asp?p=51&amp;backurl=%2FDefault%2Easp%3FSearchMonth%3D%26monthsubmit%3D%26SearchText%3D%26Go%2Ex%3D%26Go%2Ey%3D%26pg%3D1%23abc">HERE</a>!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Ring of Honor Wrestling Presents</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">THE CONQUEST TOUR&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">2300 Arena</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">2300 S.

He wants his opponents to experience the agony of defeat in the most graphic sense.</span></div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“Everybody claims to be the best and says that’s why they’ll win the tournament,” Martinez said. “Well I’ve never claimed to be the best. I just like to hurt people, break bones and crack skulls.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“Punisher isn’t a name I gave myself because I thought it sounded cool. I was raised in Puerto Rico, and I’m not talking about beaches and palm trees. It was on the tough streets. People called me Punisher because I earned that name on the streets.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Young Colby Corino recently learned just how apt that moniker is. Martinez scored an impressive victory over the second-generation competitor in the first round of the tournament to advance to the semifinals this Saturday at a national TV taping in Nashville, Tenn., where he will meet the winner of the Lio Rush-Jason Kincaid match.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Martinez is considered one of the favorites to capture the tournament crown -- and the ROH contract and ROH World Television Title shot that go along with it -- because he is as versatile in the ring as he is sadistic.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">At 6-foot-6 and 253 pounds, Martinez is bigger and stronger than most of his opponents, but he also possesses surprising agility and an extensive martial arts background.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“My in-ring style is a combination of Rob Van Dam, X-Pac and The Undertaker,” he said. “My offense is very martial arts-based. I use a lot of strikes and kicks, and everything I do is very impactful. But even though I’m a big man, there are times when I like to show off that I can do what the smaller guys can do.”&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Martinez learned Japanese Goju Ryu karate from his father, a skilled martial artist who once defeated Chuck Norris in a competition.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">After winning two national championships in full-contact martial arts, Martinez decided to embark on a career in pro wrestling.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">He learned the ropes at The World Famous Monster Factory in New Jersey, and it wasn’t long before Martinez was making a name for himself in independent promotions all over the East Coast.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Martinez raised his game when he started training at the ROH Dojo a year and a half ago.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“I had gotten to a certain level and I just stayed at that level,” he said. “To give myself the best opportunity to perform on a big stage, my style had to evolve. I have a more athletic style now, and the ROH Dojo is where I developed it.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Martinez also transformed his body. He weighed well over 300 pounds at one point, but has since lost a hundred pounds.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“I used to be an all-around big man, but now I’m a fit big man,” he said. “And that makes me even more dangerous.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Martinez has certainly come a long way since he attended his first ROH tryout camp in 2014.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">At these two-day camps, the best training staff in the world teaches unsigned competitors what it takes to succeed in the sport. The camps conclude with six judges voting on whether each prospect is ready to take the next step.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The panel gave Martinez a unanimous vote of “no.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">He fared increasingly better in four subsequent camps, however, culminating with the one he attended a few months ago in which he received “yes” votes across the board.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Never short on confidence, Martinez -- who has already had a couple matches in front of ROH crowds -- is convinced more than ever that his time is now.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“The big stage has been dangled in front of me many times,” he said. “Everybody always tells me, ‘You’re right there. It’ll happen soon.’</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“Well I’ve been waiting and I don’t want to wait anymore. I’m going to make it happen. I don’t just want to open the door; I’m going to kick it open.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The next obstacle in front of that door will be either the high-flying Rush or the unorthodox Kincaid, and it makes no difference to Martinez which one of them he ends up facing in the semifinals.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“I’m sure they’re both going to bring their best,” Martinez said. “Well they can bring their best. I’ll bring the pain.”</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px;

The list of alumni reads like a “Who’s Who” of women’s professional wrestling, including pioneers Sara Del Rey, Daizee Haze, and MsChif.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">In July 2015, Women of Honor returned on a pilot basis in Baltimore. Through emails and social media, Honor Nation made its voice heard: the masses demanded more Women of Honor! “Women of Honor Wednedsday” featuring YouTube and Facebook exclusive matches have featured over twenty of the best women’s professional wrestlers in the world and the response has been overwhelming! Because of the success of “Women of Honor Wednesday”, four HUGE matches have been signed for Ring of Honor’s national television taping in Nashville, TN on February 6 at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Already signed for the biggest night in Women of Honor history are 12 of the top female stars in the world! For the very first time, FOUR Women of Honor matches will be contested! In her biggest test yet, the undefeated Kelly Klein will face the House of Truth’s Taeler Hendrix with Truth Martini, who undoubtedly will be looking for revenge for the blows they exchanged in Philadelphia! ROH Dojo standout “The Exotic Goddess” Mandy Leon will look to continue her winning ways as she does battle with The SheWolf Hania the Huntress!&nbsp; Faye Jackson, making her professional wrestling debut, will face international wrestling star ODB! And, in a must-see six-woman match, Veda Scott and “Bullet Babe” Amber Gallows, who formed a mutual admiration after their bout in Atlanta, will team with Allysin Kay to face international veteran Sumi Sakai, the pin-up powerhouse Thunderkitty, and the downright unpredictable “Crazy” Mary Dobson!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The Women of Honor stars are aware of the significant of this GIGANTIC night of women’s professional wrestling. “Women of Honor already has the best talent in the world and there are so few spots for women across the sport. Why wouldn’t I want to be here? Until my best is THE best, I’m not going to stop,” Dobson told ROHWrestling.com</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The bone-crushing Klein had this to say: “Everything we do sets the new standard for women's wrestling. Being the best in Women of Honor would mean that I alone am the new standard. I know that I am capable of setting that bench mark. I will go through every challenge and every obstacle in order to demonstrate that to the entire wrestling world."</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Meanwhile, Hendrix relishes in the opportunity to take down the undefeated Klein to establish herself as the top Woman of Honor. “Kelly Klein? I am Women of Honor. But, make no mistake, I am a woman without honor. It is time to Hail Hendrix, Kelly.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Nashville, TN is as historic as it gets for professional wrestling and February 6 will be no exception! In the same city that saw ROH make our live pay per view debut, the Women of Honor will make history in four HUGE matches for the Music City faithful!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal;
