ROH Planning Multiple Announcements? Updates On HonorCon, Matches Added To TV Taping
– PWInsider.com’s Mike Johnson is reporting that when he asked an ROH employee on what the big announcement will be they responded, “Who said we had just one?” then refused to comment further. The announcement(s?) will be made during #Honorcon Saturday, which will run for free between 1:00pm – 4:00pm before their 12th Anniversary Weekend TV taping at the National Guard Armory in Philadelphia,PA.
– Ring of Honor has revealed the panels for their very special Q&A which will take place during the HonorCon event this Saturday. Panel 1 will consist of ROH World Champion Adam Cole, ROH World Tag Team Champions reDRagon, Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish, ROH color commentator Steve Corino and the first couple of Ring of Honor, Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis.
Panel two will consist of Jay and Mark, The Briscoes, “The Phenomenal One” AJ Styles, “Mr. Wrestling” Kevin Steen and ROH play-by-play announcer Kevin Kelly.
There will also be a huge autograph signing with more than twenty ROH stars on hand for autographs and pictures. HonorCon is a free admission event with tons of free activities taking place, with some activities such as the extensive autograph signing being paid.
– Ring of Honor has announced three new matches for Saturday’s TV taping plus a big return.
The big announced match will see Tommaso Ciampa defend the ROH World TV Championship – if he can retain it against Hanson the night before – against Jay Lethal, in what would be Ciampa’s fourth title defense in just over a month. Meanwhile, RD Evans will be looking to extend The New Streak and defend Veda Scott when he faces The Romantic Touch. And lastly, in six man tag team action, The Decade (Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer and Jimmy Jacobs) will take on potential new ROH World Tag Team Champions Adrenaline RUSH, ACH and TaDarius Thomas, and Top Prospect participant Andrew Everett.
Plus, Homicide and Eddie Kingston, known as Outlaw Inc will make their first appearance since their “suspension” post Final Battle in December.
Already announced for the TV taping is AJ Styles vs. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin.
