TANAHASHI INJURY UPDATE, SIGNINGS AND MORE: RING OF HONOR NEWS & NOTES

By Mike Johnson on 2016-01-29 09:16:48
As we noted yesterday, Ring of Honor announced they had signed new deals with current ROH champion Jay Lethal and ReDragon.  We are told Lethal signed his deal the same day as the Final Battle 2015 PPV.  ReDragon came to terms a few weeks ago.

Hiroshi Tanahashi announced he is going to work through his dislocated shoulder on the upcoming New Japan dates, including the ROH events in Las Vegas. I have respect for that work ethic, but not sure it's the best idea for him or anyone.

Christopher Daniels is being advertised for the 2/6 ROH TV Taping, so he's returning from his "suspension".  We are told the storyline suspension was done so Daniels could have time off for an acting pursuit.

The lineups for the Japan shows next month in Tokyo will be announced first by New Japan.

Set for the 2/6 TV Taping in Nashville at the Municipal Auditorium:

*Briscoes vs. ACH & Alex Shelley.
*Adam Cole vs. Matt Sydal.
*Silas Young & Beer City Bruiser vs Dalton Castle's Boys
*ROH Top Prospect Tournament Finals.

The updated lineup for the 2/26 ROH Anniversary PPV in Las Vegas:

*ROH champion Jay Lethal vs. Kyle O'Reilly vs. Adam Cole.
*ROH Tag Team champions War Machine vs. All Night Express: No DQ.
*The Briscoes vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi & Michael Elgin.
*Kazuchika Okada vs. Moose.
*Alex Shelley vs. Christopher Daniels.
