ROH will be taping TV in San Antonio, Texas as well on 9/19. That taping goes head to head with NXT. Announced for the taping is Jay Brisoe vs. Adam Page: Anything goes and the ROH TV champion defending against Takaaki Watanabe.

Dearborn, Michigan on Friday 9/11 drew in the 750-950 range.

The 9/12 Chicago Ridge, IL event was sold out with standing room, so that's likely in the 1,400-1,600 range. ROH announced they would return to the market in May as part of the annual combined tour with New Japan Pro Wrestling. That announcement received a massive roar as NJPW stars have never visited that market.

Cliff Compton, as announced late Friday, missed the Chicago event as doctors would not clear him to travel to the show. Compton received the news on Friday and quickly announced that he wouldn't make ROH. Due to his seizure in Atlanta, Compton is barred from driving by law for 90 days. He and ROH tried to come up with another way to get him to Chicago, but were unable to with the short amount of time they had. Compton was added to the 10/24 event in Dayton, Ohio as part of Glory by Honor weekend so the company could give him a make-good on the date he missed since it was beyond his control. Compton also missed an AIW event in Cleveland over the weekend.

Takaaki Watanabe was said to have to had his best performances to date in ROH over the weekend against Jay Briscoe and Michael Elgin.

Elgin missed the Dearborn, Michigan event as he celebrated the birth of his son. The company actually gave Elgin the entire weekend off, but he refused to miss both dates and worked Chicago as a late addition to the card.

Matt Jackson of the Young Bucks banged up his ankle on Saturday in Chicago but the hope is he will be good to go this weekend.

The Kingdom had travel issues getting out of Boston, MA so they arrived late to Michigan. They got to the venue nine minutes before they appeared.
