September 29th ROHwrestling.com Newswire – Matches for 10/24 & 25 Plus More…
-This is the all new no hype ROHwrestling.com Newswire. We know you are tired about hearing how “big” matches are or how “huge” the card will be. All this empty hype looks the same after a while. Now, we are just going to present the news to you and then let you form your own opinions without any hype central type stuff. Ok, some hype might slip in just because we get excited, but the ROHwrestling.com Newswire will be 99% hype free now.
-The card for 10/24 in Danbury, CT is really taking shape now. Just signed is Go Shiozaki vs. Austin Aries and if Shiozaki is still FIP World Heavyweight Champion the belt will be on the line. A grudge match has also just been signed. It will pit Jimmy Jacobs vs. The Necro Butcher. These two bouts join the first ever Iron Team Match pitting Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe vs. Davey Richards & Chris Hero vs. ROH World Tag Team Champions Kevin Steen & El Generico. Tickets are now available for under $10 at www.ROHwrestling.com as part of The Big 10 Sale.

Here is what Dave Meltzer wrote about the PPV in the October 1st Wrestling Observer Newsletter: “This show delivers two hours of good to excellent wrestling in front of the hottest PPV crowd in a long time. They are crazy into every match, from the Briscoe Brothers squash match in the opener, to the strong ROH title match with Nigel McGuinness (vs.) Claudio Castagnoli, and in particular, the masterpiece of the event with Danielson and Black.”
