ROH INJURIES, ROH-NEW JAPAN UPDATE, FORMER NXT STAR AT ROH IN DALLAS AND MORE NEWS

By Mike Johnson on 2016-04-04 14:21:00

Ring of Honor drew a little over 1,400 per show over the weekend in Dallas, Texas.  The big news is the return of Colt Cabana, who challenged ROH champion Jay Lethal and obviously that will be a match that takes place later this year.  We are hearing Cabana will be in regularly.

ROH will begin announcing names for the May New Japan events soon.   For those who asked about these specific names I am told that Kenny Omega and Katsuyori Shibata coming in will depend on their work visa situations.  The feeling is that especially after the Mike Bailey situation, it's not worth taking a chance to talent in for one or two shows at the expense of losing them long-term.

Former WWE NXT star Bull "Dempsey" James was at the Saturday afternoon ROH event speaking with ROH officials.

Tommy Dreamer, Scott Hall, Sean Waltman and Kevin Sullivan also visited.

Will Ferrara got banged up on a chokeslam over the weekend but will be OK.

Kyle O'Reilly suffered an injury to his right eye - perhaps a scratched cornea - during his bout against Adam Cole.

The Dallas events were filmed for VOD and will be up later this week on www.ROHWrestling.com.

ROH will return to Texas on 4/23 in San Antonio, Texas.  They will begin to announce matches this week.
