The crowd at the ROH show in Philadelphia last night was down for the first time in awhile.

Davey Richards is done with ROH for awhile as he will be touring with Pro Wrestling NOAH and staying in Japan for much of the summer. Larry Sweeney will probably claim credit for sending Richards to Japan.

Eddie Kingston was only booked for the two ROH weekend shows, but they may bring him back down the line.

Julius Smokes missed the two ROH shows this weekend and has not been in contact with the promotion, so his future is up in the air.

ROH reached a deal with the NWA to use the NWA Title with Adam Pearce since he is the NWA Champion and to have it defended on the 6/27 show in Dayton, Ohio. ROH Champion Nigel McGuinness will face Pearce in a title vs. title match on 6/27.

I made a mistake earlier when I said there were two sets of SmackDown! and ECW TV tapings tonight. They actually did one set of tapings last night from Fresno, CA. Those tapings are for this weeks shows and are on the main newsboard. I put them up several minutes ago. There is another set of TV tapings for the June 17th ECW show and the June 20th SmackDown! show tonight. Those tapings will take place at the H.P. Pavilion San Jose , Calif. in just a little bit. Also note that because the tapings are on the West Coast, our live coverage will not begin until around 10EST later tonight. Sorry for the mistake.

I hope you’re having a good weekend. It’s so damn hot up here in Albany, NY and it looks like it’s going continue for a few more days. Yuck!
