– ‘Death Before Dishonor VIII’ just a lot bigger earlier this week! As announced, Kevin Steen and El Generico will finally meet one-on-one when ROH descends onto Toronto on June 19! The cold and bitter feud, starting at ‘Final Battle 2009′ (available on DVD at this link), has gone to nuclear levels in recent weeks, with Colt Cabana and Steve Corino firmly entrenched in it and it’s safe to say that when it’s done all four men will be scarred for their wrestling lives. Can the potential 2010 Feud of the Year be resolved in Canada? Will there be a stipulation? Steen has made it clear that "he’s calling the shots" and that Generico "deserves nothing but an end, and that end will come". You have to see this one, get your tickets now at this link, by calling (215) 781-2500, or be with us in the comfort of your own home on WORLDWIDE iPPV through GoFightLive! Info on how to order the iPPV is available at link!!
– On June 18, the day before ‘Death Before Dishonor VIII’, Ring of Honor returns to the Buffalo, New York area with a live event at the Agri-Center at the Fairgrounds in Hamburg! Just signed for this big event is a rematch from the classic must-see 20 minute draw from Chicago a few weeks ago. Roderick Strong and Davey Richards tore the house down in the Windy City, and they’re set to tee it up once more on June 18th! "I may not be able to trust anyone in ROH," said Strong. "But I trust my skills, and Richards couldn’t beat me in Chicago. And just in case he wins the ROH World Title in Toronto I want him to know that I’m the first guy in line. I will beat Davey in Buffalo and I will show him, Tyler Black, and the world that I’m the standard bearer. In Roddy I trust."
– Also signed for Buffalo is tag team action! Cheech and Cloudy have been impressive in their showings on HDNet, and now they’ll face the ultimate test of their tag team prowess. Standing in their way on June 18th is the ROH World Tag Team Champions, Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli – The Kings of Wrestling! Can the exciting upstart prove their worth against the champs in non-title action one day before the Briscoes come calling? Or will it simply be another day at the proverbial office for Hagadorn’s prized clients? Be there on June 18th to find out. Great tickets are available at this link!
– ATTENTION KENTUCKY: We’re coming! ROH will debut at the renowned Davis Arena in Louisville on Thursday night, July 22, 2010! As announced earlier this week, ROH on HDNet Executive Producer Jim Cornette has spearheaded this event, and we are excited to bring Ring of Honor to the fine fans of Louisville! A city with a storied and rich wrestling history, we aim to add another layer of greatness onto an already overflowing tradition!

– Don’t forget that ROH and HDNet return to the Arena in South Philadelphia one week from today to tape seven huge weeks of the best wrestling on television! We’re happy to announce two of the huge television main events that you’ll see next Friday. First, Delirious looks to once more avenge his brutal throat injury at the hands of Austin Aries and he’s signed to team with former ROH World Champion Jerry Lynn against "Pretty Boy Pitbull" Kenny King and "Addicted to Love" Rhett Titus. This will be Austin Aries’ debut as an officially recognized manager. What will happen when Delirious and Aries lock eyes only a couple of weeks removed from New York, where Delirious choked Aries to the point of being disqualified? And the history between Lynn and King is well-documented. Can Aries get off on the right foot in his managerial career? Be there to see it unfold! Then, a grudge match of epic proportions comes to Philly. Steve Corino can be blamed for Colt Cabana’s destruction at ‘Supercard of Honor V’, and payback comes to HDNet! It’ll be Colt Cabana versus Steve Corino next Friday night! Cabana still hasn’t fully recovered from his injuries, having needed staples to close a gaping wound in the back of his head. He’s told ROHWrestling.com that he "knows there will be women and children in attendance" next week, but he’s "coming for a fight". Tickets for both nights of tapings are available at ROHWrestling.com! Don’t miss your chance to be a part of National TV!
