Ring of Honor officials are excited to announce that they have come to terms with Davey Richards and that the current ROH World Champion has agreed to extend his existing contract.
Richards, who captured the ROH World Title from Eddie Edwards at "Best in the World 2011", has been a part of Ring of Honor since 2006 and, in addition to reigning as the current World Champion, is also a 2-Time ROH World Tag Champion alongside first, Rocky Romero?, and then Edwards.
Ring of Honor is fortunate to have a competitor as gifted as Davey Richards as part of the fold." Said Jim Cornette, "As World Champion, Richards is a fine representative of what ROH is all about, especially as we head into the Sinclair Broadcasting era this weekend in Chicago Ridge!"
Richards is set to defend the ROH World Title against former champion Roderick Strong? this Saturday night, August 13th, when we return to Chicago Ridge for our very first SBG TV Tapings! Tickets for this event can be purchased right here in the ROH Store (http://www.rohstore.com/index.php?dispatch=products.view&product_id=201) and click the link (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHDGjOaDuXk) for Davey's thoughts as we begin this new phase for Ring of Honor.
