- ROH returns to Richmond, VA on January 14, 2011 at The Raceway Complex with a HUGE main event to kick off our 9th year. It will be ROH Champions vs. ROH All Stars in an intriguing 8-man tag team match where everyone involved has a lot on the line. ROH World Champion Roderick Strong, ROH World Tag Team Champions Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli, and ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels will team up against Davey Richards, Jay & Mark Briscoe, and El Generico! The team of Champions must work together as they are representing the most prestigious group of champions in wrestling today. Each individual takes a great deal of pride in holding gold in Ring of Honor and each champion feels a loss would hurt the integrity of their respective belts. The ROH All Stars are all men that are completely capable of beating any one of the champs and a win would shoot the respective all-star to the top of the ranks. People are already talking that this match has the potential to be a ROH classic. A match like this will be something special and there is no better way to watch then to experience it live on January 14th!

- Jay Briscoe recently confronted Roderick Strong on his association with Truth Martini in the most recent ROH Videowire (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eBSLy9l5Z6s). Over the months since Strong has been under the coaching of Martini he has slowly lost connection with friends and acquaintances that span outside of the wrestling ring. Jay feels that Truth has manipulated Strong into thinking that his teachings are the reason that Roderick is ROH champion while Jay knows that Strong could have done it on his own. This confrontation and growing animosity has led to Strong offering to put the title on the line against Jay at the discretion of Truth Martini who has mentioned on multiple occasions that Jay is not even a contender. Jay agreed to Strong’s offer and is ready to knock some sense into Strong and achieve the ultimate goal in Ring of Honor. Since both parties wanted the bout it was immediately signed by ROH officials for January 15, 2011 in Charlotte, NC at the Metrolina Expo! This match will headline what it sure to be a stellar night of action! Order tickets now: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=210.

- Chris Hero is looking to capitalize on Davey Richards’ recent injury in Charlotte, NC on 1/15 Hero will face Richards one-on-one in a traditional bout for the first time in ROH history(http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/the-hunt-never-dies/). We recently got word from Hero that he is looking forward to putting the finishing touches on Richards who he feels will be weak from his Final Battle match and whatever happens from Richmond the night before. “If Davey some how makes it to Charlotte, after what he has to go through the night before in Richmond, it could be the quickest KO in ROH history.” Richards is possibly the most resilient competitor in ROH today. Most are confident that he will be 100% going into Richmond and if he comes out of that bout unharmed the match with Hero in Charlotte will surely be one for the ages and worth the price of admission alone!!

- And speaking of The Kings, just announced was a bout between ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels & ROH World Tag Team Champion Claudio Castagnoli (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/world-tv-title-on-the-line-in-charlotte/)! Daniels already holds a victory over one King; will “The Fallen Angel” pick up a second in North Carolina in his first defense of the belt?

- It was announced yesterday that the rematch from “Glory by Honor IX” has officially been signed for ROH’s return to Los Angeles, California on 1/28 at “Wrestlereunion 5” (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/kings-signed-for-big-rematch-in-la/). The Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) will face Shelton Benjamin & Charlie Haas in a non-title rematch as part of a double main event! The Kings of Wrestling were victorious by questionable means back in September and this time Charlie Haas is prepared for what might happen. “Last time we fell as a result of a loaded elbow pad. Simple as that. This time I will have my eye out for that and without the help of an illegal object there is no way they can beat us.” Get your tickets for ROH in LA here: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=213. For more information on the convention go to www.wrestlereunion.com! Check back to ROHWrestling.com on Thursday for the announcement of the other half of the double main event in Los Angeles.

- Speaking of Los Angeles, “Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels has officially signed for January 28th and if still champion he is looking to defend his ROH World Television title against anybody ROH officials are willing to put against him.

- “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett has recently made a strong impression in Ring of Honor and plans to continue his ways on 1/14 in Richmond, VA and 1/15 in Charlotte, NC. ROH officials have signed the newcomer to appear at our first live events of the New Year. Bennett recently defeated ROH veteran Colt Cabana in Plymouth, MA after a little help from trainer Brutal Bob. The following night at “Final Battle 2010” in NYC, Bennett was not booked to wrestle but decided to sit ringside with his trainer during the Christopher Daniels vs. Homicide match. Bennett has tried to get into the head of many top ROH athletes by scouting their matches and has made it clear that he has his sights set on ROH gold in 2011. However, in order to earn a shot he must continue to pick up big wins and impress management. Bennett said in regards to the future, “2011 is my year and Brutal Bob has prepared me to out wrestle anyone on the roster. I am the Prodigy for a reason and have been since birth.”

- The next “ROH on HDNet” TV Tapings will be on 1/21 and 1/22 in Philadelphia, PA at The Asylum Arena (former New Alhambra Arena/ECW Arena). All four ROH champions have already signed to appear and now the 4 men who are teaming as the ROH All Stars in Richmond have all officially signed to appear! Davey Richards, El Generico, and the Briscoe Brothers will all be in action on 1/21 and 1/22 in Philadelphia. Get your tickets now: http://www.rohwrestling.com/store.php?sec=cat&cat=30.

- Ring of Honor will once again be holding a special training seminar and tryout camp on Sunday, January 23rd, 2011, from 10AM to 7PM. It will take place at ROH’s headquarters and training center in suburban Philadelphia. The seminar is once again being spearheaded by ROH on HDNet Executive Producer Jim Cornette. Our previous seminars that we have held have each been a huge reason in the signing of Mike Bennett and recent use in the House of Truth of Michael Elgin. This is not just an audition where you pay money and get nothing in return. Everyone, both ROH and the attendees, will learn something.
