Ring Of Honor in Philly: News Leading Into This Weekend

Jules Allen

From the first match to air on “HDNet”, Delirious vs. Jerry Lynn, all the way to the Roderick Strong & Kings of Wrestling vs. Davey Richards & The Briscoes bout that will close out the final episode, “ROH on HDNet” has always provided the absolute best wrestling action on television. The partnership over the last couple years produced many great memories including title changes, heated feuds, and some of the best matches on TV. From the crowning of Eddie Edwards as the 1st ROH Television Champion, the American Wolves capturing the World Tag Titles in a Tables Match, the brutality between Kevin Steen, El Generico, Steve Corino, & Colt Cabana, the family feud between The Briscoes & The KoW, sad farewells to Bryan Danielson, Nigel McGuinness, & Tyler Black, and much, much more, HDNet has experienced all Ring of Honor has to offer.

With this Friday and Saturday being our last set of tapings, we encourage everyone to come out to South Philly for “ROH on HDNet” one last time and experience the greatest pound-for-pound wrestling action on the planet. We promise to go out with a bang on HDNet with the huge main event Six Man Tag Team Match featuring ROH World Champion Roderick Strong and World Tag Team Champions The Kings of Wrestling w/ Shane Hagadorn, Truth Martini, & Sara Del Rey vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe and Davey Richards!!

Along with that huge match on Saturday there will be the “2011 Top Prospect Tournament” consisting of ROH newcomers, established ROH wrestlers who have never been in any kind of championship contention, and one wrestler who has never competed for Ring of Honor. The First Round will be held on Friday, January 21st with the Semi-Finals and Finals to be held on Saturday, January 22nd.

In addition, ROH officials have signed a number of other bouts to take place over the weekend, including 2 potential title defenses for ROH World Television Champion Christopher Daniels. Also, a special in-ring interview will be held with Davey Richards who has informed ROH officials he has something to say and wants the world to hear it. Also in that vein, officials have also received a rather rambling e-mail from Prince Nana stating that we will see his face this weekend. We don’t know when or why, but The Prince from Ghana, West Africa guaranteed he will be in attendance at some point.

We want to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support of “ROH on HDNet”, and we look forward to seeing all of you this weekend as we celebrate two years of the best wrestling available in the world!
