July 17th: There is a lot of news coming out of last Saturday's event. First and foremost, the ROH vs. CZW war is now over after the insane, violent and bloody Cage Of Death last Saturday that saw many twists and turns. Homicide once again saved the day for ROH only to get into an altercation with ROH Commissioner Jim Cornette that saw Cornette, Adam Pearce and JJ Dillon attack Homicide. We will have a blow for blow account including everyone's motivations in tomorrow's ROHwrestling.com Newswire. Now lets get to a plethora of huge announcements.
July 17th: Things are beginning to take shape for ROH's huge debut at the Manhattan Center on 9/16. We now know that Jim Cornette will make a rare appearance in NYC. What will happen when Homicide returns home to NYC and is in the same building as Jim Cornette? The other huge announcement last Saturday about 9/16 is that KENTA will challenge for the ROH World Title that night. KENTA is on a huge wave of momentum that will lead him to this title shot. This leads us to our next big announcement.
July 17th: "Glory By Honor V Weekend" on 9/15 in East Windsor, CT and 9/16 in Manhattan will see some very special guest. We already know that KENTA and Naomichi Marufuji will be in action. NOAH's Takeshi Morishima, Takeshi Rikio, Mohammed Yone and GHC Jr. Champion Takashi Sugiura will all be in attendence as special guests and available for autographs. They will not be competing, but will be there to support KENTA and Marufuji as well as to be introduced to the ROH crowd. Both these shows are sure to be huge international events.
July 17th: NOAH officials have already agreed to have KENTA on more ROH shows after 9/16. KENTA will compete on ROH's 11/4 return to Philadelphia. We will announce another date for KENTA soon. If KENTA wins the World Title on 9/16 he will defend it on 11/4.
July 17th: ROHwrestling.com now has a free shipping sale!!! There are also several new big releases at ROHwrestling.com. 5/12/06 "How We Roll" is available for immediate delivery.

July 17th: We have a new match for 8/25 in St. Paul, MN. ROH was in St. Paul over two years ago for "Reborn: Stage One." The historic show featured two unknowns making their ROH debuts as they tried to earn a job in a match against each other. Now over two years later both are firmly established on the ROH roster. 8/25 will see the rematch from "Reborn: Stage One" as Matt Sydal takes on Delirious!!!
July 17th: ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson pulled what could only be described as a desperation move last Saturday. Danielson volunteered to be in Cage Of Death. However, he proved this was only for selfish reasons as he clipped Samoa Joe's knee in the match and attacked Joe's leg. Anyone who has followed ROH over the past couple of months know that Joe has been having knee problems. Danielson was trying to take Joe out before their World Title Match on 8/5 in Edison, NJ. However, Joe called ROH officials today and said that he will be ready to go on 8/5 and he is coming to take his belt back. What will happen when the two best wrestlers in the world collide on 8/5 after the events of Cage Of Death? This is sure to be one of the biggest and most important matches of the year.
July 17th: Sal Rinauro is the newest member of The Embassy. It doesn't look like Rinauro will be treated as Jimmy Rave's equal as he was used as Rave's footstool last Saturday. Rinauro will be on many upcoming shows as Rave's tag team partner.
July 17th: We will have new matches for 7/28 in Dayton, 7/29 in Cleveland, 8/4 in Long Island and 8/5 in Edison this week right here in the ROHwrestling.com Newswire.
July 18th: We said this was going to be the most violent month in ROH history with two beyond extreme match types. Cage Of Death delivered last Saturday with barbed wire, thumbtacks, tables, ladders, trash cans, boards, forks and much, much more. The CZW feud is over, but now there is still one personal issue left. It will be settled on 7/28 in Dayton when BJ Whitmer takes on Necro Butcher in a No Rope Barbed Wire Match. This show will be called "War Of The Wire II" as the only other No Rope Barbed Wire Match in ROH history was a brutal contest at "War Of The Wire" on 11/29/03 between Homicide and Steve Corino. Good ringside seats are almost sold out for 7/28 so get yours now at ROHwrestling.com or by calling 215-781-2500. We will have more on this match in the new ROH Video Recap, which should be up in a day or two at ROHvideos.com.
July 18th: A huge Four Corner Survival has been added for 7/28 in Dayton. It will be a non-title match featuring ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson vs. ROH World Tag Team Champion Austin Aries vs. Homicide vs. Delirious!!! This could be the biggest Four Corner Survival ever.
July 18th: The next orientation for the ROH Wrestling School is this Sunday, July 23rd. There is no fee to attend this orientation and there are no tryouts for the beginner class. You will be trained by the best in the world ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson. If you are serious about being a wrestler and really want to learn the right way there is no better place than the ROH Wrestling School and no better trainer than Danielson.

July 18th: There was a shocking turn of events after ROH's huge victory in Cage Of Death. The next ROH Video Recap will have an exclusive Jim Cornette promo about all the series of events that unfolded during ROH's victory celebration. Here is the rundown of what happened after Cage Of Death:
-A jubilant ROH Commissioner Jim Cornette enters the Cage Of Death and calls out the ROH staff to remove the CZW bodies. Cornette requests that Homicide, Lieutenant Commissioner Adam Pearce and ROH's guest coach JJ Dillon stay in the cage. Cornette thanks Pearce for being his eyes and ears while Cornette was out with knee surgery. Cornette thanks Dillon for coaching the ROH team to victory.
-Cornette then thanks Homicide for coming to ROH's aid during the Cage Of Death and says that he will grant Homicide his three wishes, despite being reluctant to do so earlier in the night. Homicide asks for another match vs. Steve Corino and a World Title Match. Cornette happily agrees. Homicide then asks for Low Ki to be reinstated.
-Cornette says that he agreed to give Homicide three things. Cornette says he will not give anything to someone else, especially the guy that kicked his tooth out (this occurred by accident in January during the chaos of a CZW invasion). Cornette suspended Ki on the 4/1 "Better Than Our Best" release for the tooth accident and said that Ki would be back in ROH when his tooth grew back.
-Homicide calls Cornette a liar for not giving him his three wishes.
-Cornette takes deep offense to this and tells Homicide that he should be called HOMOcide.
-Homicide is greatly insulted and spits in Cornette's face at point blank range.
-Cornette nods to Pearce, who jumps Homicide. Cornette then instructs Dillon to lock the cage.
-Homicide fights back, but Cornette maces him. Cornette also maces Julius Smokes, who was trying to climb into the cage.
-Dillon and Pearce handcuff Homicide to the turnbuckle and rip his shirt off.
-Cornette then delivers the greatest insult imaginable and whips Homicide with his belt.
-Dillon and Pearce keep people from climbing the cage to make the save.
-Cornette tells the ROH fans that are booing him to kiss his behind (in less polite words).
-Cornette, Dillon and Pearce then escape surrounded by security.

This match will be contested under regular rules since the Pure Title is not on the line. If Danielson retains the belt here his next defense will be 8/5 against Samoa Joe in Edison, NJ. "Weekend Of Champions: Night 2" in Cleveland saw a match of the year candidate between Danielson and McGuinness, now July 29th will see the rematch.

July 29th will have Cabana & Steel vs. Rave & Rinauro as the tag scene in ROH heats up!!!
July 19th: Jay & Mark Briscoe will be coming to Cleveland for singles action. It will be Mark Briscoe vs. Homicide and Jay Briscoe vs. Jimmy Jacobs. This gives the Cleveland event two potential show stealers!!! We'll have much more on both these matches next week.
