RECENT NEWS http://www.rohwrestling.com/newsfeed/article.aspx ROH Latest News Feed en Taven Impresses in CMLL http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/taven-impresses-cmll <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/raven-cmll-news2">raven-cmll-news2</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>The Kingdom’s Matt Taven traveled to Mexico and returned to CMLL in a bout against the legendary Ultimo Guerrero for the NWA World Historic Middleweight Championship on Friday March 17. With a lot on Taven’s mind following the injury to his Kingdom mate TK O’Ryan, Taven dropped the first of three falls to Guerrero before winning fall two. With the championship in the balance and the match tied at one fall apiece, Taven ultimately fell short but leaves Mexico having impressed the CMLL faithful, hitting his frog splash and other impressive maneuvers.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Speculation is abound that Taven will seek at least a temporary replacement for O’Ryan in the Kingdom. While in Mexico, Taven was seconded by CMLL star Marco Corleone. ROHWrestling.com attempted to reach Taven for comment on the two’s association but were told to “get lost, Melvins.”</div> Mon, 27 Mar 2017 14:54:27 +0000 Chris Hall 471566 at http://www.rohwrestling.com Frankie Kazarian gets his shot at the ROH World TV Title at Charm City Excellence http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/frankie-kazarian-gets-his-shot-roh-world-tv-title-charm-city-excellence <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/cce-tv-title">cce-tv-title</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>The fallout from the BIGGEST Supercard of Honor of all time will be fully on display at Charm City Excellence! At this international television taping, championships will be decided, rivalries started, and feuds settled. The Best Wrestling on the Planet comes home to Baltimore at the William J. Myers Pavilion with a special 2 PM bell time!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Be the first to see all the ROH stars following what surely will be the largest-attended and most-talked about event in ROH history in Charm City! The ROH Board of Directors have signed participants to compete in Baltimore and working feverously around the clock to ensure all of your favorite ROH stars are scheduled to compete. And we can now announce the first bout signed for Baltimore: a ROH World Television Championship bout!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH</div><div>ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION MARTY SCURLL (IF CHAMPION) vs. FRANKIE KAZARIAN</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Frankie Kazarian had a banner night in Sin City at the 15th Anniversary Pay Per View – Kazarian won an exhilarating Six Man Mayhem bout with his new finishing move the Ace of Spades and later helped best friend Christopher Daniels outsmart Bullet Club and ensure the gold ended up around Daniels’ waist. His Six Man Mayhem win earned Kaz a ROH World Television title opportunity. Who he will face in Baltimore will be determined at Supercard of Honor!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The reigning and defending ROH World Television Champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll has systematically defeated each opponent he has faced in a ROH ring with the Crossface Chickenwing. Scurll has proved he can lock in this match-ended submission on competitors as big as Donovan Dijak, as quick as Lio Rush, as experienced as Sonjay Dutt, and as well-traveled as Juice Robinson. In his first weekend in ROH, Scurll defeated long-time rival Will Ospreay for the championship and has never looked back.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>His biggest challenge to date looms at Supercard of Honor XI in Lakeland when a man whose entire professional wrestling career is powered by his passion for gold Adam Cole looks to capture the championship for the second time. Recent reigns by Jay Lethal, Tomohiro Ishii, Bobby Fish, and Scurll have put the World in World title and Cole is determined to add this title to Bullet Club’s suddenly barren war chest. The winner of Scurll and Cole will face Kaz in Baltimore!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>When asked if Kaz has a preference, he told ROHWrestling.com “Both men are world class competitors – no preference.” For Scurll, Kaz presents perhaps his most veteran opponent to date should he get beyond former three-time ROH World Champion Cole, which will be no small feat. For Cole, an opportunity to extract revenge on Kaz is as enticing as the championship itself. While some would assume that Kaz would have the advantage in terms of rest heading into Baltimore, the Board of Directors recently announced that Kaz will face Punishment Martinez at Supercard of Honor!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In Kaz’s first opportunity at single’s gold in ROH, Kaz anxiously awaits the winner of Scurll vs. Cole but must remain in one piece following his bout with Martinez! Can Kaz cash in on his golden opportunity in Charm City? Be the first to know – join us in Baltimore to find out!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/baltimore-md-040817">There’s nothing like the hard-hitting, in-your-face action that only ROH can provide!

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!

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?

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.!

YOUNG BUCKS AT SUPERCARD OF HONOR NOW A LADDER MATCH! http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/hardys-vs-young-bucks-supercard-honor-now-ladder-match <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> The Hardys and The Young Bucks are taking their fierce rivalry to new heights. </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/ladder-match-news">ladder-match-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>&nbsp;</div><div>The much-anticipated showdown for the ROH World Tag Team Title between newly crowned champions Matt and Jeff Hardy and former champs The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) at Supercard of Honor on April 1 will now be a Ladder Match!&nbsp;</div><div><!--break--></div><div><br />It’s well-documented that ladder matches have been The Hardys’ speciality for decades, but The Young Bucks are no strangers to ladder matches themselves. At the All Star Extravaganza pay-per-view last September, The Young Bucks defeated The Addiction and The Motor City Machine Guns in Ladder War VI to win the ROH World Tag Team Title.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The issue between The Hardys and The Young Backs began as a war of words on social media and escalated when Matt Hardy appeared via video at the Final Battle pay-per-view in December to warn the Jackson brothers that The Hardys were coming for them.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After The Young Bucks successfully defended their title against Jay White and Lio Rush at Manhattan Mayhem on March 4, The Hardys appeared in the ring and issued an impromptu challenge for the championship to the shock and delight of the sold-out crowd at Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom. 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
