February 19th: Last weekend was one of the most newsworthy weekends in ROH history. Of course the big story is that Takeshi Morishima won the ROH World Title from Homicide last Saturday in Philadelphia. There is an article on the main page of ROHwrestling.com detailing the title win. We will have much more on this all week right here in the ROHwrestling.com Newswire. Morishima will make his first defense of the title against BJ Whitmer this Friday in Dayton. Morishima has stated that if he makes it past Whitmer, he will defend it in Tokyo at Budokan Hall on March 4th against KENTA. If Whitmer does not win the World Title in Dayton, there will be no ROH World Title defenses on the big shows in Liverpool and Detroit. The pressure is on Whitmer this weekend. The ROH Video Wire this week will have highlights of Morishima's matches against Samoa Joe and Homicide. If you are unfamiliar with the new ROH World Champion you need to see this week's ROH Video Wire. It will be available for FREE later this week at ROHvideos.com.
