Ring of Honor announced today that Lance Storm will be coming out of retirement this summer to work two ROH shows in Toronto on July 25 & 26. Here is ROH's presser: It's been nearly ten months since Lance Storm stood in front of the ROH faithful at "Northern Navigation" on July 25, 2008 where he was disrespected by Sweet & Sour Incorporated, and left Shane Hagadorn laying with a superkick. And it's been even longer, April 1, 2006 at "Better Than Our Best", since Storm entered into ROH competition. That night it was an epic, nearly thirty minute classic against Bryan Danielson for the ROH World Title. Storm came up short in his bid to become the champ but without question won over the fans of Ring of Honor On July 24th and 25th, one year since he last appeared for ROH, Lance Storm will not only come back to ROH, he will return to active competition! At the Ted Reeve Arena in downtown Toronto, Storm will make his ROH in-ring return with matches on both nights! His opponents have yet to be determined but stay tuned to upcoming Newswires for more details on whom Storm will face when he returns to the ring. When you add Storm's name to a weekend that already includes appearances by Bret Hart on July 24th and Ric Flair on the 25th, ROH's return to Canada is shaping up to be an historic one. Tickets are on sale now for both events here at rohwrestling.com, and you can save up to 40% off until Tuesday at noon. You don't want to miss out on this historic weekend! Get your tickets now!
WHSV.com was at Schewel's furniture store in Harrisonburg, Virginia on Saturday covering a the Ric Flair autograph session that drew hundreds of fans. Flair said that while he doesn't miss the long travel days that come with being a pro wrestler, he does miss the ring. "I miss that part of it a lot," Flair said. "I try to keep in shape. I do miss it, but I don't dwell on it. I could do it tomorrow - I still feel great - but it's not something that's going to happen."
