FIRST MATCH SET FOR ROH ANNIVERSARY SHOW, ROH TO PACIFIC NORTHWEST, CHANGE TO ROH TV TAPINGS GOING FORWARD AND MORE RING OF HONOR NEWS

By Mike Johnson on 2019-02-08 16:24:00

ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes vs. PCO & Brody King has been officially announced for the 3/15 ROH 17th Anniversary PPV in Las Vegas.

Starting this weekend, Ring of Honor has eliminated a day of interview pre-tapes prior to their regular TV tapings.  Going forward, all promos and interviews will be taped during the tapings or after in order to change the feel of them.  The promo days were not popular among wrestlers because it was a long day and because of the feeling that a lot of the interviews came off canned.  There was a lot of excitement among the talents we heard from today.  To me, anything that comes off more "in the moment" on a pro wrestling TV show is always a positive.

ROH has announced their "Board of Directors" have empowered the company's referees so they can more strictly enforce the rules.  Obviously, this is a storyline.

ROH will hold its first-ever shows in the Pacific Northwest this June with dates on 6/1 in Kent, Washington at the ShowWare Center and 6/2 in Portland, Oregon at Portland State's Viking Pavilion.  The weekend has been titled State of the Art.

ROH TV this week on Sinclair Broadcast Affiliates will feature NWA Champion Nick Aldis vs. PJ Black and Villain Enterprises in action.

The 4/27 Crockett Cup event is now on sale at Ticketmaster.com for the NWA/ROH co-promoted event, which will also feature tag teams from CMLL and New Japan.
