- Sources indicated to ROHWrestling.com that a BIG Pick 6 Challenge match has been signed for ‘Death Before Dishonor VIII’ on June 19th in Toronto. Stay tuned to ROHWrestling.com and our social networking portals for news as it breaks.

- Speaking of ‘Death Before Dishonor VIII’, ROH on HDNet Executive Producer Jim Cornette will preside over the official contract signing for the ROH World Championship match between Tyler Black and Davey Richards THIS FRIDAY in Philadelphia. This must-see contest will be one of the main events of DBDVIII, and is sure to be a must-see bout. Check out this special look at this highly anticipated matchup! Thanks once again to Alex O’Keefe for his video brilliance.

- Speaking of Tyler Black, he has signed for non-title action THIS SATURDAY in Philadelphia. "I’m preparing myself for the toughest match of my career in Toronto, and I need to broaden my skills. I need to face the best and I need to test myself. This match on Saturday will put me against a man that has taken Richards to the limit time and time again, in both singles and tag team encounters. I have a lot of respect for this man, and I’m looking to tap into what has made him a great foe for Richards. On Saturday in Philly, El Generico get ready, because I’m coming with a purpose." It’s Black versus Generico on Saturday in South Philly!!!

- ROH World Television Champion Eddie Edwards is bringing "The 10-Minute Hunt" to Philadelphia and Buffalo! "I’ve perfected the Achilles Lock," said Edwards. "And it’s brought me gold. I’m on the hunt and I want a test. I want any man or woman to prove him or herself worthy by lasting ten minutes with this Wolf. Last month in Manassas it couldn’t be done. Let’s see if any of the scum in Philly or losers in Buffalo has what it takes. I don’t think so." We’ll bring you the names of those taking on the challenge as they become available.

- Speaking of the Wolves, an explosive tag team Television Main Event has been signed for THIS FRIDAY night in Philadelphia! Davey Richards is not happy with "Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels. "Eddie did exactly what we needed in New York (at Supercard of Honor V)," said Richards. "He measured the man behind the ‘Fallen Angel’. And I’ll cut it straight – Daniels is a technician. A seasoned veteran. Perhaps even one of the best in world. But he’s no hunter and he’s incapable of dominance like the Wolves. So I’ll tell you what, Fallen Angel. Get a partner, come to Philadelphia, and face the Wolves. Because you have yet to prove yourself to me, Daniels. You come back to ROH and get into the Pick 6 and you think that’s supposed to impress? No, son, the sheer force and the unstoppable thrill of the hunt is all that matters. You want to be the best? Face the best." Daniels has accepted the match, and we’ll have the name of his partner as soon as it becomes available!! Don’t miss out; come Friday to see this sure-fire classic in person! Tickets are available here or by calling (215) 781-2500!!!
