Tickets for both Border Wars 2013 and the TV taping are still available here.
- Adam Cole will still receive his ROH World Championship shot at Border Wars 2013, even though Kevin Steen is no longer the champion. Nigel McGuinness had this to say to ROHWrestling.com:
"I declared Adam Cole a contender because he held that Television Title with honor. Adam carried it with integrity and continued the prestigious lineage that was established the day Eddie Edwards was crowned the first champion and continued with Christopher Daniels, El Generico, and the other men who have been champion. Adam showed he had the tools when he challenged Davey Richards last year in Dayton, and just like Jay Briscoe, has stood up for Ring of Honor throughout these issues with SCUM. I can think of no better way to ring in a new dawn for ROH than by presenting the first SCUM free World Title match in a year featuring these two athletes!"
- This week's Rollout features a new 2 Disc DVD collection chronicling the career of the Briscoes. "Briscoe Brothers: Sandy Fork Originals" features 22 matches from throughout the tag team's storied career.
