- We are a little over two weeks away from Ring of Honor’s “9th Anniversary Show” Live on iPPV in Chicago Ridge, IL. It’s hard to believe that ROH has been going strong for almost 10 years! There have been many memorable moments in Ring of Honor throughout the years and we would love to know what is your favorite all time ROH memory???
- It was announced yesterday (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/two-contenders-collide-in-dayton/
) that one day before he receives a World Title shot at the “9th Anniversary Show” iPPV in Chicago Ridge, “The Notorious 187” Homicide will battle El Genercio in a collision of two of the top contenders. Homicide laid out Generico with a Cop Killa following the Generic Luchador’s victory in a Four Corner Survival at “Only The Strong Survive” a mere two weeks before his “SoCal Showdown II” title bout. It is quite possible that the ruthless maneuver factored into Generico ‘s battle with Strong as Generico was not 100% going into his Title bout. ROH officials have also made it aware that Generico is still in contention for the World Title based off the underhanded way Strong retained it in Los Angeles at the end of January. Homicide has still yet to be pinned since he returned to ROH and a win by Generico would put him right back at the top of the Title scene immediately.
