Big Update: First Talent Announced For ROH TV Tapings

Nick Paglino

It’s almost here…the first ever set of Ring of Honor TV Tapings for the Sinclair Broadcast Group! On August 13th in Chicago Ridge, we return to the Frontier Fieldhouse for a historic evening in front of one of our most passionate fan bases. “Supercard of Honor VI” in Chicago Ridge was the site of the huge announcement that ROH had been purchased by SBG, and now they will also be treated with the first TV tapings for our debut on broadcast television September 24th!

ROH officials have been working overtime to prepare for our SBG debut, and have signed a handful of people to appear on 8/13. Not only that, but we can guarantee that all three ROH Titles will be defended as part of our very first broadcast TV Taping! Here’s a list of who has signed on to appear thus far:

- ROH World Champion Davey Richards will defend
- ROH World Tag Team Champions Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin will defend
- ROH World Television Champion El Generico will defend
- The Kings of Wrestling (Claudio Castagnoli & Chris Hero) w/ Shane Hagadorn
- Eddie Edwards
- Jay and Mark Briscoe
- The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King)

More names will be announced soon, and the ROH faithful can also expect the first title match for the very first episode to be signed and announced this Thursday!
