New ROH World Champion & Tag Champions Crowned, Major IPPV Problems, ROH Issues Apology

Share |


- Kevin Steen defeated Davey Richards at last night's ROH Border Wars iPPV to become the new ROH World champion. After the match, Cary Silkin entered the ring to present Steen the title, but was unable to do it. Steve Corino then entered the ring and celebrated with Steen and Jimmy Jacobs.

Also at last night's iPPV, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin defeated the Briscoe Brothers to become the new ROH Tag Team Champions.

- There were a lot of issues with ROH's website during last night's show. ROH apologized for the technical glitches, posting the following on their Facebook page:

Dear ROH fans, We deeply apologize again for issues with our website. Unfortunately in trying to bring our fans the best experience through our website, with a single login and ringside discounts, there are still some kinks to work out. All of our pre-tests were successful as of 5pm today and we were blindsided by these problems...

Please bear with us as we try to get it up as soon as possible. The production is going well and the replay will also be available as soon as we can get it up. For all those that purchased the PPV, we WILL resolve ALL concerns and issues...

Again we are extremely frustrated by the ippv result tonight and offer our deepest apologies. Since Showdown in the Sun, we have been working endlessly to provide an optimal ppv experience which we believe we have achieved.. For our website, we increased our server memory x3 and doubled its processing power. Still, it seems that our architecture could not handle the excessive user logins and we are left with a great stream that our fans can not see. If a refund is demanded, it WILL be given. Otherwise we would like to offer full retention of the replay for Border Wars as well as FREE access to the Best in the World PPV on June 24th for anyone who ordered Border Wars tonight. This will also include retention of the Best in the World PPV in your myPPV accounts. We WILL get this right no matter what it takes in time for Best in the World.
