Ring of Honor Wrestling has announced the following:
(Bristol, PA – March 23, 1010) Ring of Honor is happy to announce that Chris Hero has signed a new contract.
Chris Hero debuted for ROH at "Hell Freezes Over" in January of 2006 in an ROH World Title match against then-champion Bryan Danielson. In the four years since that match, Hero reigned as one-half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions alongside Claudio Castagnoli for several months in 2006, and has evolved into one of the most feared strikers in the company. Due to his devastating elbows and vicious kicks, Hero has been dubbed "That Young Knockout Kid", and truly broke out in 2009 with matches against Bryan Danielson at "Final Countdown: Dayton", Eddie Kingston at "Final Battle 2009", Tyler Black at "Clash of the Contenders", and many more. 2010 looks to be another banner year for Chris Hero as he and Claudio continue their pursuit of the ROH World Tag Titles, and Hero looks to finally capture the ROH World Title as well.
Hero looks to continue his winning ways this weekend in Phoenix as the Kings of Wrestling compete in tag team action against Scorpio Sky & Scott Lost on March 26th, and Hero will be in action on the afternoon of March 27th as well. Then on April 3rd, as part of "The Big Bang" in Charlotte, NC, he and Castagnoli go head-to-head with ROH World Tag Champions, Jay & Mark Briscoe with the belts on the line if the Briscoes are still champs.
