Ring of Honor is excited to announce that we have finalized the date and location for our next iPPV broadcast. It will take place on February 26, 2011 in Chicago Ridge, IL and it will be ROH’s “9th Anniversary Show”!!!

Three bouts are already set for this GoFightLive broadcast, with both the ROH World Title & the ROH World Tag Titles scheduled to be on the line, and plenty more matches to come. Here’s a quick look at the three matches set for 2/26/11:

- “The Notorious 187” Homicide will challenge for the ROH World Title bout against whoever holds the belt when we return to Chicago Ridge. Homicide has torn through Ring of Honor since returning in September, and is undefeated against the likes of ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels, Jay Briscoe, Kevin Steen, Necro Butcher, Kenny King, and others. The former World Champion is looking to regain the belt he lost in 2007, but never had a chance for a rematch until now.

- The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King) WILL challenge for the ROH World Tag Titles against The Kings of Wrestling. The duo earned a shot at the belts with a victory over Colt Cabana & El Generico at “Fate of an Angel II” in Mississauga, ON in November and will have their opportunity in the Frontier Fieldhouse.

- A dream tag team match pitting Jay & Mark Briscoe against Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin will take place live on iPPV! These two teams got into it in Louisville, KY at the last “ROH on HDNet” TV tapings despite being on the same side of the ring, how will things play out when they are actually opponents? Jay Briscoe has promised to pull double duty if he holds the belt come February, and both teams are looking to get the next shot at the ROH World Tag Titles. Which team will prove dominant when ROH’s celebrates its 9th birthday?

Tickets are available for ROH’s “9th Anniversary Show” here: http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=201, and keep an eye on http://www.gofightlive.tv/ for more details on how you can order the live iPPV broadcast on February 26th!
Really looking forward to the two tag matches.

Good card so far, with Roderick of course being Homicide's eventual opponent. I wonder if they'll run either of the Wolves in a rematch with Daniels for the TV title or give him fresh blood (Bennett, Orielly, TJP). With Davey not announced for one of the mains, it seems he'll be off this show. Maybe in Japan?

Yes ,is Davey gonna be in Japan for this ?Can't wait to see some new fresh oppenents for the Kings ,even though it's an obvious outcome but all of the King's matches feel like this.The Briscoes/WGTT has been a personal dream match for me ,I can see WGTT getting the win though and will probably be the team to dethrone The Kings.

I'm expecting there will be an announcement of Low Ki's return at intermission, followed by one of his classic matches (since his 90 days won't be up yet). FINGERS CROSSED.

I think this will be my first time ordering one of their iPPVs. I've either been out of town or at the shows when they have them so this should be different. I just Homicide is capable of having a main event quality match. I have to say that I'm pulling for the All Night Express.

I'm not giving up on Homicide quite yet. His match tonight on HDNet with Claudio is apparently a good time and Roderick hasn't had a bad effort in a long time.

Hell yeah. Looks like an awesome show. Although I'm a bit hesistant about All Night Express vs King of Wrestling. Mind you, both are great teams. But I somehow can't see them giving a great match. I think their styles just don't clash. I hope I'm wrong.

Prediction: Briscoes vs Haas and Benjamin will be match of the night.

Nice to see two of the main events are tag team matches. Those are the matches I'm most looking forward to. Credit to ROH for continuing to push the great art of tag team wrestling as something important.

The main reason Davey doesn't have a match signed already is because of his title match at Final Battle and he wasn't at the HDNet tapings where these 3 mathes were all announced. Don't know if he is on a New Japan tour for this iPPV but if he's missing another iPPV then ROH seriously need to sort that out quickly. Davey vs Generico in a #1 Contenders match seems logical. Prett sure Daniels vs Bennett will be added. Maybe Edwards in a 3 way depending on the outside talent they bring in.

Strong/Cide i have ZERO interest in atm. Neither guy is doing anything for me lately. Kings vs ANX should be interesting. Dont think it'll be magnificent but I can't see KOW having a bad match with them. Briscoes/WGGT could be hit or miss too. Really hoping on them getting some big outside names in cause otherwise it's gonna look really average in comparison to their previous iPPVs.

Not wild about the card so far. The All Night Xpress are coming along, but aren't a particularly exciting team as title challengers. Similarly Homicide hasn't been very good in-ring since his return to ROH, so him challenging Strong isn't highly compelling. I have so little desire to see Truth and Smokes have a confrontation - annoying manager contra annoying manager, ugh.

However, the Briscoes Vs. WGTT match should be class. I have no doubt the show will deliver. The roster tries really hard. I hope Kenny Omega can make it to this show, and wonder what Mike Bennett, Daniels and Richards will be up to. Whatever emerges for those four guys (or any of them being absent) would make up my mind on buying the show. I'd also love if they could bring TJP back. I wouldn't be surprised if the undercard out performs the top of the card.

Should have a women's match since it's in Chicago. I'm guessing Cabana will have a big-name opponent too - needs to be a heel though, so I don't know who.

WGTT-Briscoes sounds like a must-see. It's amazing how far up the card Rhett Titus has gotten himself btw too.

EDIT: Fantasy Card...

I'm going to be attending this one, so I'm really excited for this.

I thought that Daniels vs Edwards was also announced as a 2 out of 3 Falls Match for this show. I may have just misread some of the TV spoilers.

The top of the card looks like the weakest it's been for an ippv. WGTT/Briscoes should be solid, but I don't know if King & Titus will have a great match with the Kings. No interest in the world title match at all with Strong's boring heel turn and Homicide pretty much sucking ass wherever he's wrestled lately.
