January 26th: Austin Aries & Roderick Strong’s first ROH Tag Team Title defense vs. ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson & Jay Lethal will be the main event of this Friday’s show in Dayton. Aries wanted to defend the belts against Danielson and a partner of his choice since Danielson gave Aries the first shot of his World Title reign. The Aries vs. Danielson series has been a classic series in ROH. The Danielson vs. Strong rivalry is one of the most intense rivalries in ROH including an around the building brawl on 1/14 in Philadelphia. Now the next chapters of both these classics will take place on Friday. This one has all the makings of a classic.

January 26th: There is a lot of history behind the Christopher Daniels vs. Low Ki match tomorrow night in Dayton. This is the feud that started ROH. There was only one singles match between these two in ROH history and that was on ROH’s second show, “Round Robin Challenge.” The winner of this one could claim to be the icon of ROH.

January 26th: Low Ki says that he’s going to use Jack Evans to send a message to his fellow Generation Next members and ROH Tag Team Champions Austin Aries & Roderick Strong. Ki says he is going to show Aries & Strong why The Rottweilers will be Tag Team Champions soon. Ki vs. Evans is scheduled for this Saturday in Cleveland.

January 26th: The Matt Sydal vs. Christopher Daniels match this Saturday in Cleveland has an interesting story behind it. AJ Styles pushed both men to sign for this match. Styles and Daniels brought each other to stardom with their rivalry all over the wrestling world. Styles feels that Sydal vs. Daniels could create the same magic again. Sydal and Daniels have fought recently in three-way matches that proved to be very competitive. This will be their first singles match in ROH.

January 26th: The tag action will be hot and fast-paced this Friday in Dayton when Trios Tournament 2006 takes place. The odds are in from Las Vegas. Jimmy Rave, Alex Shelley & Abyss are the favorites to win at 3-1. Matt Sydal, Jack Evans & Jimmy Yang as well as the trio of Jimmy Jacobs, BJ Whitmer & Adam Pearce are both at 4-1. Tony Mamaluke, Sal Rinauro & Jay Fury are the underdog team at 10-1. Fans in Dayton will see the show open with two semi-final matches. The two winners will collide in the second half to determine the winners of the tournament. Each member of the winning team will get to book themselves in any match they want on a future ROH event so there is a lot at stake in this one.

January 26th: There are still more major announcements that could come anytime in the next week. We hope to have one more of those announcements before the office closes on Friday when the crew heads to Ohio. This week has been out of control!!!!!!
