Since making his pro debut in 1993, Daniels has won championships all over the world, including the ROH World Tag Team Title on four occasions and the ROH World Television Title.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>He has come close to winning the ROH World Title on several occasions, including taking CM Punk to a 60-minute draw in 2005. However, Daniels has not had a world title match since April 1, 2011, when he lost to Eddie Edwards at Supercard of Honor in Atlanta.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Daniels left ROH shortly thereafter before returning in 2014. During his current run, Daniels’ focus has been on The Addiction, his tag team with longtime friend and partner Frankie Kazarian.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“I put the idea of being world champion aside for a while in concentrating on the tag team with Frankie,” Daniels said recently in an exclusive interview with ROHWrestling,com, “I do have that pang of regrets sometimes. I feel like I’m being a little selfish, but at the same time, we’re all a little selfish when it comes to being world champion. I’m sure Frankie would feel the same way.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The Addiction won the ROH World Tag Team Title from reDRagon (Bobby Fish and Kyle O’Reilly) in April 2015 and successfully defended it for five months. Daniels and Kazarian regained the championship by defeating War Machine (Hanson and Ray Rowe) last May.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>At All-Star Extravaganza VII on September 30, The Addiction lost the title to The Young Bucks in a three-way Ladder War that also involved The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley). The insane contest was voted Match of the Year by Honor Nation, and despite coming up short, Daniels and Kazarian put on such a gutsy performance that earned it them a standing ovation from the crowd in Lowell, Mass.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“I felt a little bit of shame knowing that I had all these plans and all these strategies -- the things that I pride myself on in terms of being the ring general -- and all those plans and ideas that I had backfired on me,” Daniels said of the match. “It took its toll on me and made me question a lot of the things I’d been doing. ... It took me a while to get my confidence back.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After winning the Decade of Excellence tournament, however, Daniels’ confidence is at an all-time high, as his victory over Jay Briscoe showed that he is at the top of his game. Whether it’s Adam Cole standing across the ring from Daniels on March 10 or someone else, the champion will undoubtedly be in for an extremely tough night against a determined challenger who knows he may not get another opportunity at this stage of his career.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“I certainly feel some of the matches a lot more than I did even three years ago,” Daniels said, ‘but at the same time, I know I’m one win away from being champion. … I feel like I’ve done enough in my career where people will respect my contributions, so I don’t know if I need the world championship, but I certainly do want it.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH 15TH ANNIVERSARY PAY-PER-VIEW</div><div>Local Time: Friday, March 10, 2017 6pm PST</div><div>Sam’s Town Live</div><div>5111 Boulder Highway</div><div>Las Vegas, NV 89122</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>To purchase tickets <a href="http://www.samstownlv.com/whats-new/events/ring-of-honor">click here</a></div> Tue, 24 Jan 2017 19:24:51 +0000 Chris Hall 450126 at http://rohwrestling.com 'The Southern Savior' John Skyler is chasing his dream in the ROH Top Prospect Tournament http://rohwrestling.com/news/southern-savior-john-skyler-chasing-his-dream-roh-top-prospect-tournament <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/tpt-skyler-news">tpt-skyler-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>For nine years, Columbia, SC’s John Skyler has clashed with some of ROH’s best including current ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll and former ROH World Champions Michael Elgin, Kyle O’Reilly, and Kevin Steen. The only catch? These matches have never taken place inside of a ROH ring. After nine years, “The Southern Savior” gets his opportunity to prove his mettle on an international scale as the next entry into the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>A protégé of ROH legend Steve Corino and CW Anderson, Skyler used wrestling as an escape. Wrestlers like Shawn Michaels, Bret Hart, Curt Hennig, and Terry Funk inspired Skyler to make a name for himself. A stand-out soccer player in high school, Skyler turned down soccer scholarships to chase his professional wrestling dream.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Skyler has seen his success in wrestling take him across the globe, wrestling in nine countries in three continents. Skyler is accomplished in both singles and tag team competition, having served as one half of The Love/Hate Machine with Dash Wilder and now scoring success with Corey Hollis.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Skyler models his in-ring style after stars like Fit Finlay, Arn Anderson, and Tully Blanchard. His ability to draw from his inspirations come from his background as both a student of the game and as an educator. Skyler graduated with an Education degree from the University of South Carolina. Despite his ability to teach, Skyler has turned down opportunities to pursue his dream full time.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Will the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament be Skyler’s time to shine? After nine years and nine countries, Skyler’s record, pedigree, and level of sacrifice in the name of professional wrestling speaks for itself. Skyler heads to Pittsburgh young and hungry but experienced and savvy enough to win the TPT and earn a ROH contract. <a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-pittsburgh-pennsylvania-02-11-2017/event/1600516884770CF5?artistid=883536&amp;majorcatid=10004&amp;minorcatid=27">Join us at Steel City Excellence as Skyler takes his first steps in becoming the next ROH star!</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div> Tue, 24 Jan 2017 19:00:00 +0000 Chris Hall 450036 at http://rohwrestling.com TICKETS FOR BEST IN THE WORLD ON SALE THIS WEEK http://rohwrestling.com/news/tickets-best-world-sale-week <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/bitw-tickets-news">bitw-tickets-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <p>The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to the historic Lowell Memorial Auditorium for two nights of the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action only Ring of Honor can provide!

Standing 6’4” and weighing just short of 400 lbs, Milonas is a mountain of a man. Milonas enters the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament as the tournament’s largest competitor ever and an instant threat to dominate the competition en route to winning and earning a ROH contract!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Milonas is from the pro-wrestling hotbed of New England. A 15-year pro, Milonas was trained by Hall of Famer Killer Kowalski. His experience compares favorably to fellow New Englander, 2016 TPT Finalist Brian Fury, and, next to his size, may be his greatest weapon. Despite his experience, Milonas is still one of the youngest competitors in the field and has the potential to not only win the Top Prospect Tournament but to take that success right to ROH gold.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“Kingpin” uses a sitting sidewinder he calls the “Swingvote” and often surprises unsuspecting opponents with his agility and explosiveness with a devastating running senton splash. One man who knows just how dangerous Milonas is is 2014 Top Prospect Tournament Winner and former ROH World Tag Team Champion “Warbeard” Hanson – Hanson has warned the ROH locker room not to take Milonas lightly!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Will Milonas be the next New England star joining Mike Bennett, Matt Taven, Hanson, and Dijak to win the Top Prospect Tournament? His size, athleticism, and experience make the “Kingpin” one of the most dangerous men in the tournament!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The tournament will begin at our international television taping, Steel City Excellence! <a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-pittsburgh-pennsylvania-02-11-2017/event/1600516884770CF5?artistid=883536&amp;majorcatid=10004&amp;minorcatid=27">Click HERE to purchase your tickets now!</a></div> Tue, 24 Jan 2017 15:20:02 +0000 Chris Hall 450011 at http://rohwrestling.com First Top Prospect Tournament Entrant Announced http://rohwrestling.com/news/first-top-prospect-tournament-entrant-announced <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/top-prospect-carr-news">top-prospect-carr-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>From Binghamton, NY, "Hybrid" Sean Carr is an athlete who had his first taste of Ring of Honor action as a surprise local entrant to the Honor Rumble. Carr impressed ROH officials at a tryout camp and the new Executive Board extended an invitation to this Upstate New York star based on his debut performance in Lockport.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“I fell in love with professional wrestling at a very young age and, from the moment I first saw it on TV, I knew that's what I wanted to do,” Carr told ROHWrestling.com. Carr comes into the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament with a background in the martial arts and the support of his family. “Growing up, my parents Kevin Carr and Rita Carr were my biggest supporters and they enrolled me in martial arts because, they felt it would help me out with my dream when it came time. I'm a 2nd Degree Black belt in Tae Kwon Do, and I have experience in Ju Jitsu, Kickboxing, and also did some amateur wrestling in High School.”</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>A chance meeting in early 2009 with Keith Zimmer led Carr to begin training with IB Green and Kage in a building with no heat or air conditioning. “It was super cold in the winter and a sweat box in the summer,” recalled Carr.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Carr is an eight-year veteran who has competed primarily in the Northeast, picking up victories with the Tombstone Piledriver and Frog Splash. He has used his martial arts background and those moves to achieve his dream of becoming a pro wrestler. But Carr told ROHWrestling.com that he has some extra motivation in taking the next step – becoming a star in ROH.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“With all the years I've been wrestling, I could never have continued this journey without the love and support from my fiancé Amber and our Daughter Mikylia. I do this for them.” While Carr stresses he leads a normal life outside the ring, watching movies and hiking with his family and dogs Izzy and Max, his record speaks for itself. Carr will certainly be one of the odds-on favorites to win the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament and earn a ROH contract!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Carr is the first name to be announced for the 2017 ROH Top Prospect Tournament. The tournament will begin at our international television taping, Steel City Excellence! <a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-pittsburgh-pennsylvania-02-11-2017/event/1600516884770CF5?artistid=883536&amp;majorcatid=10004&amp;minorcatid=27">Click HERE To purchase your tickets now!</a></div> Mon, 23 Jan 2017 22:31:51 +0000 Chris Hall 449836 at http://rohwrestling.com Motor City Machine Guns vs Tempura Boyz Signed for Pittsburgh http://rohwrestling.com/news/motor-city-machine-guns-vs-tempura-boyz-signed-pittsburgh <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/sce-mcmg-tempura-news">sce-mcmg-tempura-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>*THIS ARTICLE CONTAINS TV SPOILERS*</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Pittsburgh for Steel City Excellence on Saturday, Feb. 11.
