May 20th: Speaking of Tyler Black, he was set to face Jerry Lynn for the ROH World Title before a lingering neck injury put him on the shelf. Now in Manassas on June 12th, he’s signed once again to face Lynn. But this time, it is going to be a non-title match. “Tyler is a great athlete,” said Lynn. “And on any other occasion I’d gladly put the title up. But I’m preparing for Austin Aries on June 13th. This will be my biggest test on my biggest stage. Tyler will have his chance again, believe me.” While Tyler isn’t happy about the match being non-title, he understands. “I know Jerry is preparing for Aries, just like I’m preparing for Jacobs. In fact, I can help him be ready for Austin. But Jerry better be ready in Manassas, because whether or not we both have other battles on our mind, I’m going to be prepared to beat him. Title or not.” Should Black and Danielson capture the tag titles in Philadelphia, their scheduled matches in Manassas and New York will change.
May 20th: ROH officials are happy to announce that former World Champion, Nigel McGuinness, will be on hand in Manassas and New York. He will make an appearance on both events.
May 20th: In Boston, Jimmy Rave and the Embassy attacked the Necro Butcher and the “crown jewel” disgustingly insulted Necro by repeatedly spitting in his face. In Edison, Rave showed his true colors by doing everything he could to avoid the madman. But now he won’t have the chance to run or hide behind anyone, as signed for New York on June 13th is Jimmy Rave versus the Necro Butcher in singles competition! Prince Nana left the door open by not keeping his eye on an open contract that Rave signed for the date, and word has it that Colt Cabana was the one that noticed it. “I will take care of Boo Boo Cabana in due time,” said the Prince. “He has put my crown jewel in harm ways, but that hillbilly Butcher will not harm a hair on Jimmy Rave’s head in that dump New York City. I will see to it.”
May 20th: The following talents will be on hand when Ring of Honor returns to Detroit on June 26th and Chicago on June 27th: Austin Aries, Davey Richards, Brent Albright, Colt Cabana, D’Lo Brown, Bryan Danielson, Delirious with Daizee Haze, and “Skullkrusher” Rasche Brown.
