Based on reports, WWE and Sinclair Broadcast Group have been in talks for the last few months of a potential buyout. The talks between the two companies have been said to be progressing well. If the buyout is confirmed WWE would take full control over ROH with the weekly television shows being broadcasted on the WWE Network. At this time it would not be known which ROH stars would remain with the company.

Nothing has been finalized at this time.

ROH Announces New Match For Supercard of Honor XI

ROH issued the following:

The eyes of the wrestling world will be on the Lakeland Center on Saturday, April 1 as stars from around the globe converge in Central Florida for SUPERCARD OF HONOR XI. Top competitors from Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro-Wrestling and CMLL will do battle in the biggest night of hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action in Ring of Honor history!

The ROH Executive Committee has already announced several big matches and first-time appearances from New Japan and CMLL stars, and now is excited to announce that bitter rivals “The American Nightmare” Cody and Jay Lethal will square off in a Texas Bullrope Match!

The challenge was issued by Cody at the recent international TV taping in Pittsburgh. Cody borrowed one of fellow Bullet Club member Hangman Page’s hangman’s ropes and said he was going to attach a cowbell to it — a cowbell that had been in his family for 40 years and was used by his legendary father, “The American Dream” Dusty Rhodes, and Superstar Billy Graham in their classic Texas Bullrope Match at Madison Square Garden in 1978.

Lethal wasted no time accepting the challenge, as he has been champing at the bit to get his hands on Cody in a one-on-one match ever since their first meeting at the Final Battle pay-per-view in December ended in controversy.

Cody went hold-for-hold with the former ROH World Champion in what had been an exciting contest between two fantastic athletes. When Cody saw an opening, however, he showed his true colors.

The second-generation star kicked Lethal low and then hit Cross Rhodes to score a tainted victory. Cody put an exclamation point on his dishonorable debut in ROH by mocking Lethal and the fans after the match.

Shortly after Final Battle, Cody joined Bullet Club, a faction Lethal has been battling against since last May when he was among those on the receiving end of a brutal attack by the group.

Will Lethal settle the score with Cody at Supercard of Honor by defeating him in his father’s speciality match, or will Cody score another victory over one of ROH’s all-time biggest stars?

ROH Announces Tag Team Match For Steel City Excellence Event

ROH issued the following:

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Pittsburgh for Steel City Excellence on Saturday, Feb. 11. The international TV taping will feature all of the top stars in ROH as well as the start of the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament!

Just signed for Steel City Excellence is a tag team match pitting The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) against The Tempura Boyz (Sho and Yo).

The Machine Guns clearly have the edge in experience and accomplishments. They’ve been one of the top tag teams in the sport for the past decade and have won titles in the U.S. and Japan, including the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.

However, The Tempura Boyz are coming off their biggest win since embarking on their U.S. excursion in ROH in October. At the recent international television taping in Atlanta, the two former New Japan Pro-Wrestling Young Lions defeated Coast 2 Coast (Leon St. Giovanni and Shaheem Ali) and Will Ferrara and Cheeseburger in a Triple Threat Match to earn a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Title, which also will be seen on “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”

This compelling, first-time ever match-up undoubtedly will be fast-paced and hard-hitting. Will the veteran Machine Guns take the up-and-comers to school, or will Sho and Yo pull off the upset?

Join us in Pittsburgh to find out!
