March 20th: To kill any rumors or assumptions before they get started, current ROH Wrestling School Head Trainer Austin Aries will remain a huge part of ROH and is fully supportive of Danielson coming to the ROH Wrestling School.

March 20th: Jack Evans will be moving to Japan for three months to train at the Dragon Gate dojo and compete full time in Dragon Gate.

This will be a great opportunity for Evans to grow as a wrestler and ROH encourages Jack to take this opportunity. There are already big plans for him to return to ROH during the summer. Evans’ last matches in the United States will be 4/7 & 8 for FIP in Clearwater and Crystal River, FL.

March 20th: We will be back tomorrow with some big match announcements.

March 21st: ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson and Samoa Joe have been in constant contact this week preparing for their tag main event this Saturday in Manhattan when they face KENTA & Marufuji. This will be the only time these four square off in the same match. Danielson & Joe definitely need to be on the same page as many wrestling experts consider KENTA & Marufuji as the best tag team of the past several years. This match will also mark the first time that Danielson steps into the ring with KENTA. Samoa Joe and KENTA had a very heated exchange in Mexico on 3/10. Joe says that was just a warm up for what will happen this Saturday in New York City. Tickets are on sale now for just $10 at How can you pass up seeing this match alone for only $10?

March 21st: April 1st in Chicago has the biggest advance of any show in ROH history and it looks to be the highest attendance in ROH history. This will be a truly historic night. Since the fans have supported us so much, we have added three huge matches for this show. ROH Tag Team Champions Austin Aries & Roderick Strong will defend the Tag Titles against the international challenge of CIMA & Doi from Dragon Gate.

March 21st: Two ROH trademark match types have also been signed for 4/1. In the most loaded Four Corner Survival ever it will be Samoa Joe vs. Christopher Daniels vs. AJ Styles vs. Jimmy Yang!!! This one doesn’t need any hype.

March 21st: The second ROH trademark match for 4/1 is the action packed Six Man Mayhem. This one will be sure to supply lots of high-flying innovation as it features Chicago’s own Ace Steel vs. Jack Evans vs. Matt Sydal vs. Jimmy Jacobs vs. Dave Crist of Irish Airborne vs. Jake Crist of Irish Airborne. This one will tear down the house!!! More matches will be added on the night of the show depending on what happens during the next three shows.

March 21st: Some are predicting the Alex Shelley vs. Christopher Daniels match on Saturday at Basketball City on the Chelsea Piers to be the show stealer. Shelley and Daniels have been two forces in ROH. This will mark the first time that they finally collide. Both need a win here to stay in the Top Five Rankings.

March 21st: For those of you wondering, the idea of having the last Christopher Daniels vs. Samoa Joe singles matches for the January Ohio double shot was to give the weekend a theme. Since none of the upcoming weekends need a theme like that, the idea of billing any upcoming matches as their last singles match in ROH has been dropped. However, there are no plans right now for future Daniels vs. Joe matches so it looks like 3/30 in Detroit will be a special night as they kick off the triple shot with their last scheduled singles match in ROH. Things will build between Joe and Daniels each night of the triple shot as they compete in a three-way on 3/31 and a Four Corner Survival on 4/1.

March 21st: The shows from 2/25 to 4/22 will be known as The Milestone Series. The packaging will make them stand out as a mini-collection when you display your ROH DVDs. Each show in this time period will be a milestone for ROH. 2/25 was the Fourth Anniversary Show, 3/11 was the ECW Arena debut. 3/25 in Manhattan will be our one year in NYC, our biggest crowd in NYC and feature the epic main event that will never happen again. 3/30 in Detroit will see the best of ROH compete against the best of Dragon Gate as well as mark the kickoff of the first triple shot in ROH history. 3/31 in Chicago is a supercard featuring the most grudge matches of any of these shows plus it will be the only double DVD set of these events. 4/1 in Chicago will be the highest attendence in ROH history. 4/22 in Philadelphia will be the 100th show. We are in the middle of the greatest run in ROH history and the ride is just getting started.
