Aug 4, 2010 - by Steve Gerweck
– The Official Website for Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Glory By Honor IXâ€™ has been launched! This huge event is taking place on Saturday, September 11th live from the Manhattan Center in New York City, and available tickets are quickly disappearing. We fully expect this event to sell out, so act now! Limited tickets are available here and donâ€™t forget that the Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Funker” himself, the legendary Terry Funk will be in attendance! Also just announced yesterday for GBH9 is a special Tag Team Dream Bout as the Kings of Wrestling will battle former WWE Tag Team Champions, Shelton Benjamin and Charlie Haas! You donâ€™t want to miss this one! Fans who canâ€™t be with us in person on September 11th can watch it all unfold on WORLDWIDE iPPV via http://www.gofightlive.tv/showEvent.do?eventId=733! For more information, visit the official website for Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Glory By Honor IXâ€™ at http://www.rohwrestling.com/glorybyhonor/!!
– ROHWrestling.com has reached out to Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin for comments on their debut in Ring of Honor. Stay tuned.
– Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli say theyâ€™re ready to cement their status as not only the greatest Tag Team in ROH history, but also WRESTLINGâ€™S greatest Tag Team. Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“In Charlotte [on August 28; tickets available here], after we Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“ultimately endureâ€™,” said Hero, Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“we will dine like kings with our queen and prepare together like champions for Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Glory By Honorâ€™. Whatâ€™s left to prove? Beating Haas and Benjamin? So be it. It will be done on 9/11 whether weâ€™re the champions or not. The Briscoes canâ€™t handle us two-on-two. Dark City? The House of Truth? There isnâ€™t a team ALIVE worthy and certainly no real challengers to our crown. In fact we have an idea for Richmond, VA. Keep your eyes open.”
– Pick 6 Action is coming to Richmond, VA as part of Ring of Honorâ€™s debut on August 27th at the Richmond Raceway Complex! As announced yesterday (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/richardssteenrichmond/), Davey Richards will attempt to strengthen his Pick 6 standing by jumping three spots if he can overtake Kevin Steen. Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“Sometimes you have to open old wounds to get what you need,” said Richards. Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“I need security in the Pick 6, and Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Fat Boyâ€™ has it. Nothing more, nothing less.” Steen, nor Steve Corino, has yet to comment.
– Also, donâ€™t forget about the Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“Championâ€™s Challenge” as ROH World Television Champion Eddie Edwards looks to silence his critic as he faces ROH World Champion Tyler Black one-on-one in Richmond on 8/27! Take a look at http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/champions-challenge/ to see how this match came about, and get your tickets today here!!!
– The latest edition of the ROH Videowire is on line and available here . Austin Aries takes things a step too far in his mental war against Delirious, The Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“All-Night Expressâ€™ talk about Tag Wars, and Colt Cabana reaches out to Roderick Strong. Plus, Nana and the Embassy canâ€™t wait for Richmond, ROH World Champion Tyler Black talks about not dodging bullets, and Kevin Steen makes a bloody statement. All that, and Shane Hagadorn makes a public plea to Davey Richards.
– Speaking of Richards, sources indicated to ROHWrestling.com that Davey Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“has zero intention of sitting down and talking anything out with Shane Hagadorn”.
– Sources indicated to ROHWrestling.com that Daizee Haze was physically alright following her Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã…“kidnapping” at the hands of Austin Aries, but that sheâ€™s never been more ready to see Delirious end the mind games and take Aries down. More on this as it develops.
– ROH Officials are currently mulling over two attractive Pick 6 Championship petitions. Whichever is selected will face Tyler Black at Ãƒ¢Ã¢â€š¬Ã‹Å“Glory By Honor IXâ€™ in the main event with the ROH World Championship at stake. More to come.
