- Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin are furious that they were not awarded a ROH Tag Team Title match in Norfolk, VA after word broke of Rhett Titus’ severe knee injury. “The idea of a random lottery is ludicrous,” said Haas, “We should have been given our rematch in Norfolk with Jay and Mark. The idea of a lottery for a shot at gold may be intriguing to ROH fans but it is just delaying the inevitable. Whoever steps up in Norfolk will be slaughtered. I feel sorry for whoever that team is.”
- Speaking of Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team, keep an eye on the ROH Store next week for our latest DVD compilation, WGTT: The Anthology Vol. 1!
- Also this Saturday in Norfolk, the undefeated Tommaso Ciampa receives his biggest match yet against ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal in The Proving Ground. Don’t sleep on this captivating contest because Jay Lethal has one of the toughest Proving Ground matches of his TV Title reign. What a weekend for Lethal if he could win the ROH World Championship on Friday and then defeat the undefeated on Saturday.
- We can officially confirm that the ROH World Championship will be defended on both nights at “Showdown in The Sun” in Ft. Lauderdale, FL on March 30th and 31st. Try your best to make your way to the legendary War Memorial Auditorium for a weekend of events that will blow your mind. Both mega events will be available on iPPV and tickets are available here.
