December 31st: Big news hit yesterday for ROH’s debut in Los Angeles as part of the WrestleReunion 4 convention. It was announced that ROH World Champion Austin Aries will face Japanese legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger in a non-title affair. Many question why Aries won’t put his ROH World Title up for grabs, and as he stated in yesterday’s article (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/article.aspx?id=3136), Aries thinks Liger is great, but not the “Greatest Man that Ever Lived”. Can Liger upend the champ in the City of Angels?
December 31st: Signed for January 29th in Los Angeles is an interesting match featuring two ROH debuts. Scorpio Sky and Scott Lost have been plying their trade for years on the West Coast and to this point haven’t been able to show their wares in Ring of Honor. Now, when ROH comes to L.A. on January 29th they’ll both have the opportunity to turn heads as the take on El Generico and Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana in tag team action. Generico is still reeling after the shock of Kevin Steen’s betrayal at Final Battle and has turned to Cabana for support. Can Generico get 2010 off on the right foot or will the two newcomers take the ball and run with it? Check out www.wrestlereunion.com for more information on this big event!

December 31st: Signed for January 9th as one of the three Television Main Events to be filmed that day is tag team action with subplots galore. ROH World Champion Austin Aries has had detractors since he regained the championship, but Kenny King has been nothing but a student and stalwart companion to “A Double”. They’ll team to take on the men that they faced in singles action at Final Battle: Roderick Strong and Tyler Black. Both Strong and Black came up short in New York. Can they turn it around on HDNet? Tickets for both days of TV Taping are available at www.rohwrestling.com.

December 29th: As was announced yesterday at ROHWrestling.com, ROH’s debut in Los Angeles on January 29th will be headlined by a gigantic 8-Man Tag Team Main Event (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/article.aspx?id=3131). The Briscoe Brothers want nothing more than to avenge the beatdown put on them by the newly reunited Kings of Wrestling at Final Battle, but conveniently Hero and Castagnoli are out of the country until the end of January. When the six-time ROH World Tag Team Champions petitioned for a match, Shane Hagadorn stepped in and refused. ROH officials proposed a way to get it done, and it’s signed. The Briscoes will team with the Young Bucks to face The Kings of Wrestling and the American Wolves on January 29th! Will the Briscoes find the redemption they seek, or will this only give BOTH the KoW and the Wolves the chance to soften up the champs? Be a part of WrestleReunion 4 and find out! For ticket information, check out www.wrestlereunion.com.
December 29th: Also signed for January 29th as part of the WrestleReunion 4 convention and Ring of Honor’s debut in Los Angeles is a matchup that could have Pick 6 ramifications. Joey Ryan has been the stalwart “hired Magnum” of Prince Nana’s Embassy and is ready to make impact in ROH. “ROH is coming to my neck of the woods,” said Ryan. “This is the place that true stars call home, and this is the place where I start my ascent in 2010. And my first step to the top of Mount Sleaze will start with the man that has yet to make that final ascent – Tyler Black.” It’s Ryan versus Black on January 29th! Black is currently ranked sixth in the Pick 6 Standings, and if he makes it to L.A. ranked, this match could be worth so much more to Nana and Ryan.
December 29th: Ring of Honor is very happy for the success that Nick and Matt Jackson – The Young Bucks – have enjoyed in 2009. And so it is with a bittersweet smile that we will soon bid adieu to this charismatic team with such potential. We already know that the Bucks will team with the Briscoe Brothers for 8 Man Tag Team action on January 29 in Los Angeles. We are happy to announce that the Bucks will also still appear as part of the ROH on HDNet National Television tapings on January 8th and 9th in Philadelphia and you will have a say in who they’ll face on January 8th! The two toughest tag team battles on HDNet for the Young Bucks have come from the American Wolves and the Dark City Fight Club. With this in mind, we’re putting it to you – the fans! Out of those two teams, who should the Bucks face on January 8th? Let your voice be heard by emailing your selection to ROHFansVoice@gmail.com! We’ll have the results of fan voting next week in the Newswire!
December 29th: ROH officials are happy to announce that the Human Tornado will be a part of February 5th and 6th ROH on HDNet National Television tapings in Philadelphia as well as Ring of Honor’s 8th Anniversary Show taking place on February 13th in the heart of New York City!
December 29th: Pick 6 action will take place on January 8th as part of the next set of ROH on HDNet Television tapings. Kenny King, fresh off securing the number 4 position by virtue of his win over Roderick Strong at Final Battle has signed to face El Generico. Generico has been extremely reclusive since his world unraveled at Final Battle, seeming only to be speaking to Colt Cabana, and has yet to publicly comment on Kevin Steen or what took place. Can King continue his climb at the expense of Generico? Or will Generico rebound from the biggest shock of his wrestling life? Be there in South Philly on January 8th and find out!
December 29th: We are happy to announce that the talented Scorpio Sky will be a part of Ring of Honor’s debut in Los Angeles on January 29th. ROH officials are high on this superb athlete and are excited to see what he brings to the table. We’ll have his match announcement for 1/29 later this week in the Newswire.
December 29th: Signed for January 9th in South Philly is another Pick 6 matchup with subplots galore. Kevin Steen is currently ranked #2, and after what happened in New York City last month, no one knows where his mind it at. He’s signed to face Delirious, a man that found himself on the wrong side of the Embassy at Final Battle. Delirious was an original member of the Pick 6 and is looking to get back into contention, while everyone is simply looking for answers from Steen. Perhaps we’ll get some on January 9th.
December 29th: We’ll be back later this week with more matches for the January 8th and 9th HDNet Tapings as well as more on ROH’s debut in Los Angeles as part of WrestleReunion 4!
