January 5th: There is an article called "Wheelin' & Dealin' Going On Behind The Scenes" on the main page of ROHwrestling.com. The latest news is that Larry Sweeney is holding Chris Hero out of the Fifth Year Festival now due to money demands. Sweeney is taking a big gamble here. If Hero is able to win the ROH World Title on January 26th vs. Homicide in the Boston area then Sweeney will be able to name his price for Hero. However, if Hero does not win the belt then Sweeney will have to greatly lower his demands. This is a gutsy powerplay from Hero's new super agent.
