October 16th: ROH officials had some interesting negotiations with Dragon Gate officials last weekend.

Shingo has just been added to 11/24 in Long Island, 11/25 in Edison, 12/22 in East Windsor and 12/23 in Manhattan. You can expect Shingo to be given an opportunity to be a major force in ROH. We hope to have some more announcements regarding Dragon Gate soon.

October 16th: ROH officials are very upset with World Tag Team Champions Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli, known as The Kings Of Wrestling. Hero & Castagnoli put the ROH belts on the line at a CZW event last Saturday. This title defense was not sanctioned by ROH and will not count as a title defense. A very heated phone call today saw Hero tell ROH officials that he is under contract, he has the power since he is a champion and therefore he is calling the shots. We'll have more on this later in the week. Hero & Castagnoli will put the belts on the line against former champions Austin Aries & Roderick Strong on 11/4 in Philadelphia.
October 16th: Congratulations to The Briscoes for winning the FIP Tag Team Titles from The Heartbreak Express last Saturday. Friday night saw an incredible match between Davey Richards and Roderick Strong. There is an issue to keep an eye on with Richards and Strong. The next major FIP show will be 11/10 in Inverness, FL when Strong challenges Bryan Danielson for the FIP Heavyweight Title. Strong has promised victory. Check FullImpactPro.com for more info.
October 16th: The next ROHwrestling.com Newswire will have a new match for 10/28 in Chicago.
October 17th: Two more matches have been signed for Chicago on 10/28. Chicago's own Colt Cabana has agreed to keep teaming with Jimmy Jacobs and the duo will take on the former Embassy of Jimmy Rave & Sal Rinauro. Rave has made it clear to Rinauro that they better win this match. We'll have more on why Cabana is still teaming up with Jacobs in the near future.
October 17th: Also signed for 10/28 in Chicago is a potential show stealer. Jay Briscoe will take on Matt Sydal. Both wrestlers are destined to grab the main event spots here in ROH so they each need a victory here. Get your tickets now at ROHwrestling.com or by calling 215-781-2500.
October 17th: Another main event quality match has been added to 11/4 in Philadelphia. Last time in Philly, ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson turned on Samoa Joe in the Cage Of Death. Now the Danielson vs. Joe feud will come to Philly when they compete against each other in a dream partner tag team match. Joe has already selected Nigel McGuinness as his partner since McGuinness was Danielson's greatest rival this year. We have no word on Danielson's partner yet. It will be Joe & McGuinness teaming for the first time vs. Danielson & ??? in Philly. Good seats are selling fast so get them now at ROHwrestling.com or by calling 215-781-2500.
October 17th: This week's Wrestling Observer Newsletter has a write up on two recent must see matches. Dave Meltzer gave Bryan Danielson vs. Nigel McGuinness from the just released "Unified" DVD ****3/4 and said: "When the Liverpool (Unified) DVD comes out...if you are voting for match of the year this year you have to...get a tape of that bout...it's a match you have to see....It was psychologically awesome but also insane at the end...it had the aura of one of those 90s Budokan Hall main events....I'd go ****3/4 on it and it's really a must see." Meltzer also reviewed Danielson vs. Samoa Joe from "Fight Of The Century" and gave it ****1/4. You can get both these DVDs as part of the buy 3, get 1 free sale now at www.ROHwrestling.com that lasts until tomorrow night.
