March 14th: Samoa Joe & Pure Champion Jay Lethal defeated CM Punk & Spanky last Saturday to earn a shot at the ROH Tag Team Titles. The match will take place on 4/2 in Asbury Park, NJ when ROH Tag Team Champions Dan Maff & BJ Whitmer put the belts on the line vs. Joe & Lethal!!!
March 14th: No one knows why Stevie Richards went after CM Punk last Saturday. The only thing that Richards told ROH officials is that he will be back. We aren't sure why especially since Richards is under WWE contract. We will find out when Richards returns to ROH later this week right here in the Newswire at ROHwrestling.com.
March 14th: It's official!!! The 4/2 ROH World Champion Austin Aries vs. Homicide winner will defend the belt on 4/16 in the Boston area against the undefeated James Gibson. The 4/2 Aries vs. Homicide loser will face Bryan Danielson on 4/16.
March 14th: Right now ROH officials are discussing the title petitions to determine who will get a shot at Jay Lethal's Pure Title on 4/16 in Boston. If Lethal & Samoa Joe win the Tag Titles on 4/2, Lethal will have to wrestle twice and defend both belts in the same night.
March 14th: The 2/19 "Third Anniversary Celebration Week: Part 1" double VHS set is now out and ready for immediate delivery from ROHwrestling.com. This home release clocks in at over five hours and features roughly one hour of highlights, which includes clips from every show in ROH's 3rd year.

March 14th: There is no more Special K in ROH. Dixie & Azrieal won the name last Saturday by defeating Lacey's team of Izzy & Deranged. In an interview that will be seen on the home release, Dixie & Azrieal dropped the name. They said that Special K represents partying and they are serious about their careers now. Lacey has given her faction of Deranged, Izzy, Cheech and Cloudy a new name. They will now be known as Lacey's Angels. We are seeing Lacey's true colors now as she claims to be ROH's smartest businesswoman.
March 14th: ROH officials have been able to rule out any members of The Embassy for the attack on Jay Lethal backstage on 3/5. Lethal was jumped by someone and had his eye badly swollen. ROH's investigation found that all members of The Embassy had an alibi as they were in Prince Nana's limo eating shrimp cocktails. ROH officials are still looking into the possibility that Nana paid someone to attack Lethal.
March 14th: ROH officials have decided that the 4/2 New Japan USA Best Of American Super Juniors tournament matches will have no bearing on ROH records or title petitions since these are New Japan USA matches as sanctioned by the NWA. Tickets are now on sale for this huge event in the legendary Asbury Park Convention Center. The final two participants will be named this week in the Newswire at ROHwrestling.com.
