Newswire For The Week Of April 1st
Monday, April 02, 2007
April 2nd: We would like to thank everyone for making last weekend in Detroit a huge success. Unfortunately we have some major injury news to report. Mark Briscoe suffered a concussion after landing bad on a shooting star press to the floor. He was in the hospital for the entire weekend. He is now questionable for 4/13 & 4/14. We hope to have an update later this week. BJ Whitmer will be forced to miss 4/13 & 14 for a neck injury he suffered in the Steel Cage Showdown against Jimmy Jacobs last Saturday. Fans are calling this brutal match the greatest cage match in ROH history. Unfortunately both Whitmer and Jacobs paid the price. Jacobs suffered worst of all. He had half of one of his front teeth chipped. Worst yet, he will need major surgery to repair a completely torn my Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) in his left knee. Jacobs will miss 6-9 months of action, but will still have a role on most of the ROH shows.
April 2nd: There were a lot of surprised in Detroit. Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin, The Motor City Machine Guns, challenged Jay Briscoe to a ROH World Tag Title Match on 4/28 in Chicago. Shelley & Sabin have made a name for themselves as a tag team in Japan. They added fuel to the fire by jumping Jay while Mark Briscoe was being taken out on a stretcher after the shooting star press. The Briscoes vs. Shelley & Sabin for the ROH World Tag Team Titles is official for Chicago. You can now get tickets for this event for only $10 as part of the new $10 sale at ROHwrestling.com. This match will be worth $10 alone!!!
April 2nd: Another surprise saw Jim Cornette return to try to attack Homicide. Cornette enlisted Brent Albright, Adam Pearce and Shane Hagadorn. Colt Cabana came to Homicide's side and they teamed up for the first time ever exactly one year from their brutal "Better Than Our Best" Chicago Street Fight. This feud will continue on 4/13 in Long Island when Homicide faces Brent Albright one-on-one. Cornette is not currently scheduled for any upcoming ROH events, but he has promised Albright a huge payday if Albright can take out Homicide in Long Island. Tickets are now just $10 for the big return to Sports Plus.
April 2nd: There is now a $10 sale at www.ROHwrestling.com on over 70 ROH show, Best Of, Straight Shootin' and Secrets Of The Ring DVDs!!!

April 3rd: Nigel McGuinness has intensified his training for his shot at the ROH World Title on 4/14 in Edison, NJ against Takeshi Morishima. Nigel has been perfecting different ways to hit the rebound, or jawbreaker, lariat. This is the move that has caused Samoa Joe, Jay Briscoe, Jimmy Jacobs and Chris Hero to get pinned on recent shows.
