ROH's Death Before Dishonor event will take place at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on 8/2. Already confirmed for the show:
* Kevin Steen & El Generico vs. The Motor City Machineguns
* Naomichi Marufuji vs. Go Shiozak
ROH released this statement on a potential deal with AAA. "ROH's top officials and AAA's top officials recently met face-to-face in Manhattan, NY to discuss talent exchanges and other ventures. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but talks have been very positive. It looks like partnership is developing between ROH, AAA and Pro Wrestling NOAH. ROH also has Dragon Gate, FIP and SHIMMER as partners. The NWA World Heavyweight Title is also now in ROH. This means that ROH has working relationships with NOAH, Dragon Gate, FIP, SHIMMER, NWA and a growing one with AAA."
Yesterday was the sixth anniversary of TNA's first PPV which featured Ken Shamrock winning the NWA Title.
SpikeTV won't be airing the TNA iMPACT! replay on Saturday night due to the UFC Ultimate Fighter finale.
