-- ROH has announced their next iPPV will take place on February 26th, live from Chicago Ridge, IL. Matches announced included Homicide challenging the ROH World Champion, The All Night Express vs. The Kings Of Wrestling for the ROH Tag Titles and Jay & Mark Briscoe against Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin. Check out the press release:
Ring of Honor is excited to announce that we have finalized the date and location for our next iPPV broadcast. It will take place on February 26, 2011 in Chicago Ridge, IL and it will be ROH's "9th Anniversary Show"!!!
Three bouts are already set for this GoFightLive broadcast, with both the ROH World Title & the ROH World Tag Titles scheduled to be on the line, and plenty more matches to come. Here's a quick look at the three matches set for 2/26/11:
- "The Notorious 187" Homicide will challenge for the ROH World Title bout against whoever holds the belt when we return to Chicago Ridge. Homicide has torn through Ring of Honor since returning in September, and is undefeated against the likes of ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels, Jay Briscoe, Kevin Steen, Necro Butcher, Kenny King, and others. The former World Champion is looking to regain the belt he lost in 2007, but never had a chance for a rematch until now.
- The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King) WILL challenge for the ROH World Tag Titles against The Kings of Wrestling. The duo earned a shot at the belts with a victory over Colt Cabana & El Generico at "Fate of an Angel II" in Mississauga, ON in November and will have their opportunity in the Frontier Fieldhouse.
- A dream tag team match pitting Jay & Mark Briscoe against Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin will take place live on iPPV! These two teams got into it in Louisville, KY at the last "ROH on HDNet" TV tapings despite being on the same side of the ring, how will things play out when they are actually opponents? Jay Briscoe has promised to pull double duty if he holds the belt come February, and both teams are looking to get the next shot at the ROH World Tag Titles. Which team will prove dominant when ROH's celebrates its 9th birthday?
