The stars of Ring of Honor descend upon Stage AE for a night of hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only ROH can deliver!&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The fallout from Death Before Dishonor will be fresh on the minds of both ROH stars and fans alike with an eye turned toward All Star Extravaganza! ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness signed a long-brewing grudge match for Pittsburgh!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">CHRIS SABIN vs ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPION FRANKIE KAZARIAN</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In April 2015, Chris Sabin revealed himself as the man behind the mysterious red, Knights of Rising Dawn mask after his interference allowed the Addiction to defeat reDRagon for their first ROH World Tag Team Championships.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">But Sabin’s long-time partner and best friend Alex Shelley returned to Ring of Honor at the end of 2015 and left Sabin torn.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In February, Sabin and Shelley reunited the Motor City Machine Guns and immediately set their sights on the Addiction. And that anger was reciprocated by Daniels and Kazarian.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Since then, the Addiction have captured the ROH World Tag Team Championships under questionable circumstances. The Machine Guns have chased the Addiction across the country and around the world trying to dethrone Daniels and Kazarian and capture the one championship that has eluded one of the world’s best teams.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Chris Sabin has an opportunity in Pittsburgh to soften up one half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions. The motivation for Kaz accepting the match isn’t so clear. One of the most cerebral veterans in Ring of Honor, “The Heavy Metal Rebel” certainly must have his reasons for accepting this bout. Is his seeking revenge or is it something more sinister along the lines of injuring one half of his team’s biggest rivals.

For weeks, ROHWrestling.com had been sharing White’s journey from New Japan Young Lion to Ring of Honor arrival. Throughout the Best in the World Pay-Per-View, White was shown enjoying, and perhaps scouting, the Best Wrestling in the Planet from the front row. KAMAITACHI eventually would make his way to ringside during the ROH World Tag Team Championship bout and physically engage White.</span></div><div style="margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">It all seemed to be part of the Addiction’s master plan to retain the ROH World Tag Team Championships.</span></div><div style="margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">The following night, White made his ROH wrestling debut and defeated KAMAITACHI! An ensuing brawl led to a six-man tag team match between White and his new allies the Motor City Machine Guns and the Addiction and KAMAITACHI. The match was made official and the high-profile prospect White scored his second pinfall of the night, this time on the legendary Christopher Daniels!</span></div><div style="margin-bottom: 10px; font-size: 11px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">In Pittsburgh, White looks to prove his pinfall on one half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions was not a fluke. Meanwhile, Daniels has promised to teach the young Kiwi star a lesson in the Steel City. Who will come out on top?

line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">It was an unparalleled display of hubris, but the black-and-white clad band of athletes took a giant step toward that audacious goal during a recent five-day span.</div><div style="font-size: 14px;

The Bullet Club members proceeded to humiliate Lethal by cutting off his signature braids and shaving his head.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Lethal implored McGuinness to reverse his decision so that he could get his hands on Cole, and McGuinness obliged by booking Lethal vs. Cole for the title at Death Before Dishonor.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">It was obvious from watching the match that Cole had successfully gotten in Lethal’s head, as the usually cerebral Lethal took unnecessary risks in his thirst for revenge, and Cole took advantage of it.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">“I’m in the driver’s seat now,” Cole said in a recent interview with ROH’s Kevin Kelly. “I’m the franchise of this company and I run this place.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Omega is making a strong case that he now holds a similar position in New Japan Pro-Wrestling.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">By winning the G1 Climax tournament, Omega has an opportunity to wrestle in the main event of Wrestle Kingdom, NJPW’s huge annual show in January.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Omega, competing in his first G1 Climax event, defeated 2008 winner Hirooki Goto in the finals of a grueling round-robin tournament that also included the likes of IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada, IWGP Intercontinental and former ROH World Champion Michael Elgin, Hiroshi Tanahashi, Tetsuya Naito, Katsuyori Shibata and former ROH World Television Champion Tomohiro Ishii.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Omega boasted afterward that no competitor in any other wrestling promotion in the world could’ve accomplished what he did.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">“Absolutely not,” Omega told SI.com. “[They’re just not] on my level at all, physically or mentally.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">How long Bullet Club will be able to ride this wave of momentum remains to be seen, but with each title the faction wins and each ticket and piece of merchandise it sells, Bullet Club’s stranglehold on the sports tightens.</div> Thu, 25 Aug 2016 13:00:00 +0000 ROH Wrestling 402836 at http://www.rohwrestling.com A View from Ringside - Death Before Dishonor http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/view-ringside-death-dishonor <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> by Kevin Kelly </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/view-ringside-3">A View from Ringside</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: 14px;">The slap from Shibata followed by one from Silas Young and then a handshake. Respect earned from each other. That moment, along with many others, made “Death Before Dishonor” so memorable from my seat at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">For 427 days, Jay Lethal held the Ring of Honor World Championship and his reign ended at “Death Before Dishonor”. Through his 29 title defenses, Lethal garnered respect from fans and peers alike all over the world and the moments following Cole’s win were filled with emotion for the former champion and the fans in attendance.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The audience was on their feet in salute, some in disbelief that the magical reign had come to an end. Lethal looked virtually inconsolable as he slowly walked to the back. One young fan was in tears and when word came back to Lethal, he came back out from the locker room to comfort her.&nbsp; In spite of the fact he had just suffered a heartbreaking defeat, Lethal delayed necessary medical attention to console someone else. That sums up the greatness of Jay Lethal.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Yes, Adam Cole is now a two-time Ring of Honor World Champion but he will have his work cut out to match the level of greatness that Jay Lethal maintained through the fourth-longest ROH World title reign in history. However, there is something going on in Professional Wrestling now; a thread of success around the world for athletes that are competing under the banner of “Bullet Club”, a movement that appears to be unstoppable.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">What “Bullet Club” has done is assemble the best talent in the world. It’s not about being friends with someone and being handed a shirt. This is about skill and “Bullet Club” has it in abundance. Adam Cole is the ROH World Champion. Kenny Omega won the G1 Climax Tournament in NJPW. The Young Bucks are IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champs and are looking for the ROH World Tag Team titles. It’s clear that “Bullet Club” rules the wrestling world and even slowing them down will be tall order.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Speaking of “Bullet Club”, Hangman Page picked up the biggest win in his career when he defeated Jay Briscoe in the “Anything Goes” match at “Death Before Dishonor”. Grueling, brutal and bloody, this match proved that Page is a top-of-the-card main eventer for years to come. You can count the number of singles match losses for Jay Briscoe over the past few years on one hand and have fingers left over, adding more weight to the win by Page.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">It is clear that Katsuyori Shibata is different than any other wrestler that has competed here in Ring of Honor. He is more machine than man with his ability to absorb punishment but his “Death Before Dishonor” opponent, Silas Young showed his “cyborg” side as Shibata and Young battered each other in a thrilling bout. In my opinion, Young should be a top guy in ROH and deserves an opportunity for title match consideration.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Addiction showed they are the “smartest men in the room” with a sneaky, yet legal way of winning the Triple Threat match to keep the ROH World Tag Team Championship. I wasn’t watching the monitor and didn’t see Christopher Daniels tag himself into the match. I thought Tanahashi’s “High Fly Flow” would lead to new champions being crowned but instead, the Addiction retained in a smart, athletic performance.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Next up is “Field of Honor” this Saturday in Brooklyn at MCU Park.

font-family: Helvetica;">The rivalry between the Motor City Machine Guns and The Addiction hits a new level on the ROH RELOADED TOUR!&nbsp; The current ROH World Tag Team Champions have recruited Kamaitachi to join their "war" against anyone and everyone they feel has wronged them or engaged in "conspiracies" against The Addiction.&nbsp; Kamaitachi seemed poised to break out in ROH thanks to his incredible athleticism, but instead he chose to side with the always devious Daniels and Kazarian.&nbsp; With Kamaitachi in their corner, The Addiction have continued to rack up victories by any means necessary!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Motor City Machine Guns have accomplished incredible feats as a tag team all around the world.&nbsp; But they've still never managed to become ROH World Tag Team Champions!&nbsp; As long as The Addiction hold the titles and have Kamaitachi at the ready, what team can stand a chance against them?&nbsp; But it looks like the Machine Guns have found an ally to help even the odds in Duluth: Jay White!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">A standout of the NJPW Dojo, Jay White has made an immediate impact in ROH with thrilling matches and incredible skills.&nbsp; But the Young Lion's ROH career got off to an auspicious start when Kamaitachi attacked him at BEST IN THE WORLD 2016!&nbsp; This is a grudge yet to be settled and so White was more than willing to fight alongside Sabin and Shelley on September 24th!&nbsp; While no titles are on the line, a win over The Addiction would be a major psychological victory for the Machine Guns.&nbsp;&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ROH Officials have decided to sign this match with one special stipulation: lucha rules!&nbsp; That means that no tags are necessary.&nbsp; When a member of a team's feet hit the ground, any other member of his time is free to enter the ring and become the legal man.&nbsp; That means the action is sure to be non-stop on September 24th when the ROH RELOADED TOUR stops in Duluth!</div><div style="font-size: 14px;

line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">The presence of the two New Japan Pro-Wrestling stars adds huge international implications to the match, as former IWGP Heavyweight Champions Naito and Tanahashi will each be vying to become just the second Japanese wrestler to win the ROH World Title (Takeshi Morishima held the championship for eight months in 2007).</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">This match will also mark another chapter in the fierce, highly personal rivalry between Lethal and Bullet Club’s Cole that has been raging for more than two months. Cole escalated the conflict when he and The Young Bucks attacked Lethal and proceeded to humiliate him by cutting off his signature braids and shaving his head at a recent national TV taping.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">ROH matchmaker Nigel McGuinness had earlier proclaimed that Cole would never receive another world title shot as long as he is in charge, but Lethal and the fans convinced McGuinness to reverse his decision at Aftershock in Philadelphia on July 16th. At Death Before Dishonor, Adam Cole defeated Jay Lethal to win the ROH World Championship for the second time.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 12px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">Jay Lethal will look to regain the championship he held for over 420 days and get the revenge he seeks against Cole and now Tetsuya Naito. During the most recent TV Taping in Las Vegas, Lethal enlisted the help of Naito and Evil to join him for a Six Man tag team match against Adam Cole and Bullet Club. But when Lethal needed Naito most, the leader of Los Ingobernables de Japon left Lethal to fight on his own.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">Winning major championships and competing on the big stage are nothing new for Tanahashi and Naito.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">Tanahashi has won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship a record seven times and headlined NJPW’s annual Wrestle Kingdom show in the Tokyo Dome a record eight times, winning six of the main events he has competed in at the major show.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">Naito won the IWGP Heavyweight Championship from Kazuchika Okada this past April and went on to hold it for two months before losing it back to Okada.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">The leader of the villainous Los Ingobernables de Japon has proven time and again that he is as devious as he is talented, so he will likely to stoop to any depths in the Four Corner Survival Match to put gold back around his waist.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 10px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size:14px;">Regardless of who leaves Brooklyn with the championship, this figures to be a match that fans will be talking about for years to come.</span></div><div style="font-size: 10px;

line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Death Before Dishonor Pay Per View is in the books, and it proved to be a historic event and a huge night for Bullet Club.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">A thrilling Four Corner Survival Match got the show in Las Vegas off to a hot start, as Donovan Dijak emerged victorious over Lio Rush, Jay White and Kamaitachi. With the win, Dijak earned a shot at the ROH World Television Title.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Rush got on a roll and appeared to be on his way to victory, but Dijak -- who earlier in the match was dropped on his head outside the ring by a Rush hurricanrana -- nailed Rush with the Discus Boot and finished him off with Feast Your Eyes.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Katsuyori Shibata made his ROH debut by defeating a game Silas Young. Young came within an eyelash of pinning the NEVER Openweight Champion before Shibata beat “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Man” with the PK.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">After the match, Shibata and Young engaged in a unique display of mutual respect, as the two no-nonsense tough guys exchanged slaps to the face before shaking hands.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In a six-man match between the two most dominant factions in NJPW, the CHAOS contingent of Roppongi Vice (Beretta and Rocky Romero) and Toru Yano defeated Bullet Club’s Guerrillas of Destiny (Tama Tonga and Tonga Loa) and Yujiro Takahashi, thanks to a low blow by Yano on Takahashi.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Guerrillas of Destiny attacked Yano after the match. Bullet Club member “Hangman” Adam Page then came out and attempted to hang Yano with his noose, but Jay Briscoe made the save. The grudge match between Page and Briscoe began immediately thereafter.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In an ultra-violent, bloody brawl, Page scored the biggest victory of his career. It took a brutal Rite of Passage through a table outside the ring, nearly choking Briscoe into unconsciousness with his noose, and another Rite of Passage in the ring for Page to finally put the two-time former ROH World Champion away.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In a match-up of two of the most charismatic stars in the pro wrestling, IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada was pushed to the limit by Dalton Castle, but Okada prevailed in the non-title bout after hitting The Rainmaker.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ROH World Television Champion Bobby Fish successfully defended his title with a hard-fought victory over a determined Mark Briscoe. Fish hit Falcon Arrow for the win.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ROH World Tag Team Champions The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) defied the odds and found a way to retain their title in a Triple Threat Match over Los Ingobernables de Japon (Tetsuya Naito and EVIL) and Michael Elgin and Hiroshi Tanahashi.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The resourceful Daniels subtly blind-tagged Tanahashi just before the Japanese star hit High Fly Flow onto EVIL. Daniels then swooped in and pinned EVIL while Tanahashi was still on top of him.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In the incredibly intense, hard-hitting main event, Bullet Club’s Adam Cole defeated Jay Lethal for the ROH World Championship, ending Lethal’s 427-day reign.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Cole, who last held the world title more than two years ago, became just the third man in ROH history to regain the championship.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The story of the match was that usually cerebral Lethal let his desire for revenge get the best of him, and Cole took advantage.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Cole did not have long to bask in his moment of glory, however, as arch rival Kyle O’Reilly snuck up behind the new champion and dropped him with a brain buster.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Don’t miss your chance to witness this historic event by catching the replay of Death Before Dishonor XIV.</div> Sat, 20 Aug 2016 15:37:31 +0000 ROH Wrestling 401931 at http://www.rohwrestling.com
