This will probably be the longest show out of the three and there are already plans to make it a double DVD set. 4/1 in Chicago will have a dream match theme. Some matches for 4/1 will not be known until the day of the show and after the happenings of 3/30 and 3/31.

March 7th: A big tag team match has been signed for 3/30 in Detroit. ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson has been having problems lately with The Embassy of Jimmy Rave & Alex Shelley with Prince Nana. Danielson has stated that he can beat Rave & Shelley with any tag team partner. Danielson has challenged Rave & Shelley to a tag match. The World Champion is so confident that he can beat them that he will let The Embassy decide his tag partner. Prince Nana has picked a man that has yet to win a fall in ROH. On 3/30 in Detroit it will be Danielson & Delirious vs. Rave & Shelley with Prince Nana!!! There are still great ringside seats available for this huge event that also features Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels in an Anything Goes Match, Homicide vs. Colt Cabana in a Pinfalls Count Anywhere Match and much more including the ROH vs. Dragon Gate series. Will Shelley enter this match as World Champion after going for the belt on 3/11 in Philly?
