Ring Of Honor has announced the following, revealing their new academy in Baltimore, Maryland will open its doors with a two-day camp on June 23rd and 24th:

The new, state-of-the-art Ring of Honor Dojo officially opens its doors in Baltimore on June 23rd and June 24th with a two-day camp followed by a regular training schedule on an invitation-only basis thereafter. The ROH Dojo will be partnering with the best professional wrestling schools from around the country to assist in identifying athletes who are ready to take the final steps in becoming a star on Ring of Honor television. All students will train under the full-time training staff.

Dojo members will train under:

Delirious, Ring of Honor Executive Producer – Delirious has over 19 years of international professional wrestling experience as well as nearly nine years as a producer for Ring of Honor. Delirious will focus on in-ring execution, television presentation, and more.

BJ Whitmer, Ring of Honor Producer, Color Commentator – BJ Whitmer has 19 years of international professional wrestling experience and has served as a color commentator and producer for Ring of Honor for three years. Whitmer re-invented himself on the microphone and will focus on both in-ring action and outside the ring communication.

Joey, International Wrestling Star and Producer – 90% of the stars you see on TV today have received tutelage from Joey. He has worked in every major promotion over the last 22 years and has been a professional coach/producer for the past eight.

Jonathan Gresham, Ring of Honor Wrestler – The man known as “The Octopus” has 13 years of international professional wrestling experience, competing in 13 countries across four continents before turning 30. A master technician, Gresham looks to share the art of grappling, conditioning, and much more.

Following the Grand Opening Seminar, the ROH Dojo will hold Try-Out/Seminar Camps every three to four months.

WWE News: Paige Assaulted By Fan While Leaving Allstate Arena Last Night

Published

on

In some breaking news this morning, it looks like one member of the WWE Universe took things way too far following last night’s Money In The Bank pay-per-view in Rosemont, Illinois.

PWInsider is reporting that SmackDown Live General Manager Paige was the victim of an assault as she was leaving the building. According to an eye witness, the multi-time WWE Divas was on her way out of the arena in the passenger seat of her vehicle with the window down to say goodbye to the loads of fans who were patiently waiting to get a final glimpse of their favorite Superstars. While giving out some high-fives, a male approached the vehicle and then “pie-faced” Paige, telling her to “lose some weight”.

It’s being said that the fan was confronted after the incident, but it was not by Paige and has yet to be specified. It’s also unclear at this time if the fan was arrested or not, however Paige posted about it via Instagram story, which we were able to get a screen capture of:

EA’s Take: This is all kinds of wrong. Of course, this is definitely assault by the letter of the law, but it remains to be seen what will come of it or if she’ll be pressing charges (if the guy was arrested). Secondly, what the $*!# is wrong with people?!? Perhaps I have blinders on, but there’s nothing wrong with Paige’s body, so I truly don’t understand why people shame her about her weight. What does she weigh, 140? 150? Give me a break. I could be wrong, but I’d be willing to bet there are a lot of women who wish they looked as good as Paige does. Keep doing you boo.
