- Kevin Steen vs. Homicide has officially been signed for Chicago Ridge on October 16th. This is a match that has people talking as Homicide just returned to ROH and is looking to work his way toward an ROH World Championship match. Kevin Steen is fresh off unmasking El Generico and his insanity is increasing day by day. Both men have a lot on the line.

- We’re anticipating the return of Davey Richards to action this weekend. Davey has been away touring with New Japan Pro Wrestling for the past few weeks. After a highly successful tour he’ll step back into the ROH ring on Friday night against Shawn Daivari.
 
- Colt Cabana and Steve Corino will do battle in one final showdown when ROH returns to The Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, IL on Saturday night, October 16th. Cabana made Corino give up to the Billy Goat’s Curse at “Glory by Honor IX” in a gruesome Double Chain Match and is looking to finally take everything out on Corino one-on-one in his hometown, preferably without having to worry about Kevin Steen or any other outside distractions. Corino has accepted the match stating that Cabana’s win at Glory By Honor was “a fluke” and that “Cabana could never make me give up ever again” especially without Generico around to aid Cabana in the process. ROH officials will officially sign this match within the next couple of days and a stipulation will be set to cater towards both mens needs.
 
- Homicide’s match for October 15th in Dayton, OH will be announced tomorrow on ROHwrestling.com.
 
- Daizee Haze will be in action on both October 15th in Dayton, OH and October 16th in Chicago Ridge, IL.
 
- Recent ROH signees Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly have been put together as a tag team and their abilities will truly be put to the test at the Montgomery County Fairgrounds on October 15th as they will face two of the most violent men in ROH today, Kevin Steen and Steve Corino! Cole & O’Reilly look at this as the biggest opportunity of their young careers while Steen and Corino look at it as a warm-up for their matches the next night in Chicago Ridge, IL. Corino and Steen should not take these two newcomers lightly as they are eager to make an impression as a tag team threat.
