This year we head back to LAS VEGAS!&nbsp; All of your favorite ROH stars will be there competing against some of the biggest stars from New Japan Pro Wrestling.&nbsp; Scores will be settled, feuds will culminate, and championships will be decided! Our next match announced for the 14th Anniversary is a huge ROH WORLD TAG TEAM TITLE REMATCH!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;"><b>WAR MACHINE vs ALL NIGHT EXPRESS</b></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">The old adage “Be careful what you wish for” was proved to be true than in Concord, NC. The All Night Express, KENNY KING and RHETT TITUS, cashed in their ROH World Tag Team Title match that they earned at FINAL BATTLE 2015 in Philadelphia against WAR MACHINE, HANSON and RAYMOND ROWE!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">King and Titus were prepared for a battle against the two powerhouses. And then, as quickly as ANX brought a table into the match, King was sent through it! Because War Machine was disqualified, ANX has petitioned ROH Matchmaker NIGEL MCGUINNESS for a re-match. Their reasoning? They never lost to War Machine! But Nigel has raised the stakes and made the rematch "NO DISQUALFICATIONS"!!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">While their point is valid, it has drawn the ire of the fans, much like their claims of being the true ROH World Tag Team Champions because the two never lost them in 2012! It has drawn no greater ire than that of “War Beard” and Rowe – one of the most dominant teams Ring of Honor has ever seen! We will find out who the undisputed ROH World Tag Team Champions are in Las Vegas!</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Tickets for the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View event are SOLD OUT, but you can still see the stars of ROH &amp; New Japan collide the National TV Taping on <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/022716-14th-anniversary-tv-taping-las-vegas-nv">Saturday, February 27th</a>.

It was the summer of 2002 and I was languishing in the WWE developmental system without a contract and no reason to think I’d ever get one. After discussing my feelings with fellow non-contracted wrestler Brian “Spanky” Kendrick, he gave me a VHS cassette of the then-fledgling independent company Ring of Honor, telling me this was where the best wrestlers of our generation were going, and one of his former training partners, Bryan Danielson, was one of the top guys there. I took the tape home and watched the show, half impressed with the believability of the style, half reluctant to think I could ever work that style myself.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Fast forward to the following summer, and a couple of learning intensive tours with Brian Dixon’s All Star Wrestling promotion in the UK, and I was ready with a British style that could find me a spot within Ring of Honor. I remember the first time I saw Bryan - in the locker room, early in the day, before my first show with the company, the first ROH had ever run in Ohio. He was sitting quietly by himself, reading a book. People would come by and he’d look up with a gentle smile as he genuinely shook their hand. He had a quiet air of self-repose and confidence that, even in that moment, made him subliminally stand out of the crowd. And I swear, as I write this now, I knew then in that moment, somehow, that he would play as big a part in my career as anyone else on earth; when at the time there was no reason to think perhaps we’d even ever wrestle.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Over the next year or so, as I had positively received matches within the company, I would watch from behind the curtain pretty much every other match on the show, but certainly every one that followed me, avidly if it involved guys like Samoa Joe, Homicide, Christopher Daniels and Bryan. He had this fluidity, and presence, that drew people to him, and went beyond the moves. I once asked him after a show what he thought I needed to do to move up the card. He told me he had no idea.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">By the spring of 2006 I had a solid reputation within the company, developing a harder hitting style, while booker Gabe Sapolsky had brilliantly booked my run as the Pure Champion. I first wrestled Dragon in Cleveland. It was only supposed to be a one-off match. But I realized on that night what I’d felt intrinsically that first moment I’d seen him in the locker room - we had an unmistakable chemistry together.&nbsp; You can call it premonition, clairvoyance, I don’t know. But it was undeniable.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Dragon got the best out of everyone. He never had a bad match; most were outstanding. Like Kurt Angle after him, he had an innate ability to take what I brought to the table and make the perfect match out of it. Because of the success of our first match, Gabe booked us together perfectly in a program that led to a big match in my home country, in August of that year, on the first solely ROH show ever in that country: In the main event, with both his World title and my Pure title on the line.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">It would certainly be fitting to call the match epic. I’d thought about it for months beforehand, every angle, every possibility. The crowd that night was electric and as the match progressed, it drew everyone in. Late in the match I got busted open on the ring post, and nearly counted out. The emotion from the crowd when I rolled in at the last second was one of the most visceral, authentic, reactions I ever felt, and I struggle to describe in words. Jimmy Rave, watching in the wings of that old theater in Liverpool, told me afterwards it was the single biggest reaction he’d ever heard from a live crowd. Fists shaking with rage, we clashed in one more exchange before he finally ended the match with elbows.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">We had more matches for ROH, including my last ever one for the company. We got to travel the world wrestling in Japan, Australia and all over the US. We became friends outside the ring too, sharing more than just a common interest in wrestling. We argued over philosophical questions like whose feet were better looking, whether dogs were more intelligent than humans, and whether clam-digging was a worthwhile pastime.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">After we left ROH our lives went in very different directions and for a long time we lost touch. Just recently, however, we reconnected and even if it is the only time, I will be glad of it, and just as glad of everything else we shared, both inside the ring and out.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">For me, however, the memory that will stand out the most perhaps, was from the Manhattan center in New York City, in a match he had with someone else. I’d gone one before him with Naomichi Marufuji, one of the most exciting and talented junior heavyweights in Pro Wrestling NOAH at the time. It was a huge chance for me to stake my claim as a top guy and thanks to Marufuji’s brilliance we tore the place up. In my career I was always my own worst critic, but for once I came to the back half-filled with a notion of “follow that motherfucker,” and half afraid we’d done a little too much.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">But Dragon went out there with Kenta, and a torn labrum nonetheless I believe, and put on a classic that is still remembered today. I watched from the corner of the balcony of that iconic venue, drawn on to the edge of my seat every time I, like every other single person in attendance, thought the match was over. After the third or fourth time, I felt the rising noise from the crowd quieten in my head, my breath slow, the hairs rise on the back of my neck, and I’m not afraid to say, my eyes well up with tears, realizing I was watching a special moment, a truly beautiful art in its most authentic form. Dragon is one of those people who, when you see just how talented he is, makes you think there just might be a God after all.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;"><strong><i>Excerpts from Nigel's upcoming autobiography Bumping Monkeys.</i></strong></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;"><em style="font-size: 16px; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">These classic Bryan Danielson moments and more can be seen in ROHWRESTLING.com's&nbsp;<a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/vod/bryan-danielson-rise-glory" style="font-size: 16px;">Ringside Area</a>&nbsp;or on ROH DVD releases :&nbsp;<a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-final-countdown-dvd-2-disc-set" style="font-size: 16px;">BRYAN DANIELSON: The Final Countdown</a>&nbsp;and&nbsp;&nbsp;<a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/bryan-danielson-world-champion-2-disc-set" style="font-size: 16px;">BRYAN DANIELSON: World Champion</a>.</em></div> Thu, 11 Feb 2016 15:43:22 +0000 ROH Wrestling 344421 at http://www.rohwrestling.com SHELLEY vs DANIELS signed for the 14th Anniversary PPV http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/shelley-vs-daniels-signed-14th-anniversary-ppv <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Friday, February 26th - Sam&#039;s Town Live - Las Vegas </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/022616shelley-vs-daniels2">022616_SHELLEY VS DANIELS2</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;"><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal;">Ring of Honor is ready for its biggest year yet in 2016 and the celebration of our 14th Anniversary!&nbsp; And this year we head back to LAS VEGAS!&nbsp; All of your favorite ROH stars will be there competing against some of the biggest stars from New Japan Pro Wrestling.&nbsp; Scores will be settled, feuds will culminate, and championships will be decided!

In addition, a beefed-up set of lights surrounded the ring, enveloping the ringside area with bright, brilliant light. But it was the stars inside the ring that shined the brightest on this history-making night. Here are my thoughts from Nashville.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Ring of Honor features the deepest, most competitive tag team division in all of Professional Wrestling and Saturday featured a Tag Team Gauntlet. While you will see this episode on TV in a few weeks, trust me when I say that the Young Bucks, Roppongi Vice and reDRagon will all prove why they are redefining tag team wrestling&nbsp;</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Sitting on top of the division is War Machine and they have ANX to deal with at the 14th Anniversary. Not far behind lurk the “Baddest Tag Team on the Planet”, the Briscoes, ACH and Matt Sydal and the Addiction. The division is so competitive that one loss can affect a team’s status as contenders. This forces each team to step out of any comfort zone and continue to innovate and improve.</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Talking with Hanson on Saturday, he told me that he has made some dietary changes and is looking to be about 20-25 pounds lighter since the first of the year by the time he gets to Las Vegas. I chatted with Rowe in the airport Sunday morning and we talked about the anti-drug speeches he has been doing in Texas as of late, motivating him more than ever. Congratulations to War Machine for all of their successes.</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Definitely don’t plan to spoil the “Top Prospect Tournament” but I will say that this year’s field featured eight finalists that had all attended ROH Tryout Camps and all eight stood out. We know Donovan Dijak won last year but fellow participants Dalton Castle, Will Ferrara and the Beer City Bruiser are main roster stars now as well. I predict there will be several more main roster inhabitants from this year’s field.</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">When I asked the Young Bucks about Kenny Omega and what the plan is for the 14th Anniversary, there was an incredible buzz in the Municipal Auditorium. “The Cleaner” has already made an impression on ROH fans, as have Matt and Nick Jackson. These three elite Bullet Club stars will look to dominate ACH, Matt Sydal and KUSHIDA in a Six-Man Tag Team match on Friday February 26, live on Pay-per-View from Las Vegas.</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">If you are a fan of the Women of Honor division, you’ll get to see great matches taped in Nashville very soon. It’s the most eclectic group of women I’ve ever seen in the squared circle and there is a great deal of competition within the division. Women of Honor matches were voiced by my pal, Nigel McGuinness who I love working with and Ian Riccaboni, who continues to improve on Play-by-Play. Ian is a good guy who blushes easily whenever Scarlett Bordeaux compliments him.</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">When the episode airs, please go out of your way to watch Matt Sydal vs Adam Cole.&nbsp;</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Jay Lethal’s dominant win over AJ Styles at Final Battle and his successful title defense in front of 40,000 fans against Michael Elgin at Wrestle Kingdom 10 in Tokyo showed that Lethal is the greatest champion in Professional Wrestling today. But he will be sternly tested at the 14th Anniversary in a Triple Threat match against Adam Cole and Kyle O’Reilly.&nbsp;</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">If Lethal finds a way to maintain control of the gold, who will be next for Lethal? If Kyle gets his way, who will be first for O’Reilly? If Adam Cole is victorious at the 14th Anniversary, what hope does Kyle have in his future? A physical and emotional toll will be taken on all three men on Friday February 26, live on Pay-Per-View.&nbsp;</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Up next, Honor Rising from Korakuen Hall next weekend!&nbsp;</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Calibri; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Yours in Sport,</span></span></div><div style="font-size: 15px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;"><span style="font-size:14px;"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">KK</span></span></div><div>&nbsp;</div> Wed, 10 Feb 2016 15:53:58 +0000 ROH Wrestling 343961 at http://www.rohwrestling.com #WOTW Tickets On Sale this Week to Ringside Members http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/wotw-tickets-sale-week-ringside-members <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> 5/9 Dearborn, 5/11 Toronto &amp; 5/14 NYC </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/wotw-tour">WOTW TOUR</a> </div> </div> </div> <div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">The stars of RING OF HONOR and NEW JAPAN PRO WRESTLING unite this May for the WAR OF THE WORLDS TOUR!&nbsp;</span></div><div class="p1">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">We already know that the action kicks off on Sunday, May 8th in Chicago Ridge with GLOBAL WARS live on pay-per-view.&nbsp; Tickets for this event are already on sale right now and can be purchase by clicking <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/050816-global-wars-ppv-chicago-ridge-il">HERE</a>.</span></div><div class="p1">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">As huge as this event will be, it's only the start of the WAR OF THE WORLDS TOUR!&nbsp; The entire week is filled with ROH/NJPW action!</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">&nbsp;&nbsp;</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><b>Saturday, May 14th&nbsp;</b></span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Terminal 5</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">610 West 56th Street</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">New York, NY</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Doors open 5:30pm / 7pm Bell Time</span></div><div class="p2">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><b>Monday, May 9th</b></span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Ford Community &amp; Performing Arts Center</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">15801 Michigan Avenue</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Dearborn, MI 48126</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Doors open 6pm / 7:30pm Bell Time</span></div><div class="p1">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;"><b>Wednesday, May 11th</b></span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">TED REEVE ARENA</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">175 Main Street</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Toronto, ON</span></div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">Doors open 5:30pm / 7pm Bell Time</span></div><div class="p1">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">With stops in Chicago, Dearborn, Toronto, and New York City, the WAR OF THE WARS TOUR is an international collision of the best wrestlers on the planet and you don't want to miss it!&nbsp; Speculation is already rampant that these events WILL sell out!&nbsp;</span></div><div class="p2">&nbsp;</div><div class="p1"><span style="font-family:georgia,serif;">The NYC stop of the WAR OF THE WORLDS TOUR, Saturday May 14th at Terminal 5 will be sold exclusively thru <a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/event/00005049D99244AD">Ticketmaster</a>, and go on sale tomorrow Wed, Feb 10th at 10am Est for Ringside Members and Fri, Feb 12th at 10am Est to the general public.

This is one 2016 return NO ONE could have predicted!&nbsp; It has been over 5 years since Omega last competed in an ROH ring, but on February 26th he returns.&nbsp; Kenny Omega has become a massive star while competing almost exclusively in Japan, eventually joining the BULLET CLUB alongside his teammates for the 14TH ANNIVERSARY, The Young Bucks.&nbsp; This trio made international headlines just weeks ago when they unceremoniously forced AJ Styles out of the Bullet Club and declaring themselves the ELITE members.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">But also joining Omega in Vegas will be a very familiar rival: KUSHIDA!&nbsp; KUSHIDA has wowed ROH fans each and every time he has competed in front of them as part of our growing collaboration with NJPW.&nbsp; KUSHIDA is also the current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, currently in his third reign with that title.&nbsp; In fact, he won the championship gold after defeating none other than Kenny Omega!&nbsp; These two athletes have traded the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship back and forth since the summer of 2015 and the hostilities have not settled.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Speaking of longtime hostilities, the Bucks and the team of Matt Sydal and ACH continue their rivalry at the ROH 14TH ANNIVERSARY pay-per-view!&nbsp;&nbsp; These two teams pull off some of the most incredible combinations and high-flying maneuvers in all of professional wrestling and adding Omega and KUSHIDA to the mix only adds to the chaos.&nbsp; Recently on ROH TV, Sydal and ACH took on The Young Bucks, with Sydal securing the victory with his picture-perfect Shooting Star Press.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia;">Six of the most incredible, innovative athletes in professional wrestling in one ring for the 14TH ANNIVERSARY of Ring of Honor!&nbsp; On paper, this is already a potential match of the year.&nbsp;&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;">Tickets for the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View event are SOLD OUT, but you can still see the stars of ROH &amp; New Japan collide the National TV Taping on <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/022716-14th-anniversary-tv-taping-las-vegas-nv">Saturday, February 27th</a>.

line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size: 16px;">As Bryan Danielson delivered an emotional retirement speech last night, he stressed that he “loved [pro wrestling] in a way that I have never loved anything else.”</span></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';">When reflecting on Danielson’s amazing career, there’s no denying that “The American Dragon’s” passion for competing in the ring was fueled in Ring of Honor, where he first rose to prominence and earned a reputation as the best wrestler in the world.</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, who is walking away from the sport at the age of 34 because of concussion issues, was a perfect fit for ROH right from the start.</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 2002, a 20-year-old Danielson was looking for a place to showcase his technical wrestling and submission skills, and he found it in the fledgling company that emphasized in-ring ability and athleticism.</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';">Regarded as a founding father of ROH, Danielson participated in the promotion’s first main event, a triple threat match against Low Ki and Christopher Daniels.</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';">A little over two years later, he won the inaugural Survival of the Fittest Tournament by defeating Austin Aries in a six-way elimination match that also included Samoa Joe, Mark Briscoe, Homicide and Colt Cabana.</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';">Two months after the tournament, Danielson and Aries met in a two-out-of-three falls match that went nearly 80 minutes and was among the best matches of 2004.</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';">Also that year, Danielson scored one of the biggest victories of his career to that point when he forced CM Punk to tap out.</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';">He reached the pinnacle of the sport in 2005 when he won the ROH World Championship from James Gibson. 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.
