Published

on

Ring Of Honor’s return to the United Kingdom is just over a month away now, as the Honor Re-United tour hits Ediburgh, Scotland first on August 16th and will feature the United Kingdom vs. the United States for the ROH International Cup. Names for the event have been slowly released by ROH recently and now joining the likes of Jimmy Havoc, Joe Hendry and Mark Haskins will be Kip Sabian and Jonathan Gresham, as announced today. Below is the full announcement on Gresham’s entry:

One of ROH’s most-well-traveled stars, “The Octopus” Jonathan Gresham is the first US star announced for the International Cup! Before he reached the age of 30 earlier this year, Gresham had already wrestled in 13 countries in four continents. He is the initial first-round entrant from the US in the US vs. UK International Cup on the Honor Re-United Tour!

Gresham has an amazing array of submissions and surgical-like precision and has been challenging himself recently against international stars like ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, Cody, and KUSHIDA. Now, Gresham looks to put himself in the title hunt!

Gresham joins Jimmy Havoc, Mark Haskins, Joe Hendry, and Kip Sabian from the UK side of the bracket and will face one of the UK stars in the first round of the tournament. Will Gresham make history by winning the International Cup and earning his first-ever shot at the ROH World Championship? Who will he face? Stay tuned to ROHWrestling.com to find out!

WWE News: WWE Network To Air Starrcade Special Next Sunday

Published

on

WWE Starrcade
Next weekend’s WWE Starrcade event will air on the WWE Network…sort of.

While the WWE Universe is focused on tonight’s NXT TakeOver: War Games II and tomorrow night’s Survivor Series, next Saturday the company will present its second Starrcade event from Cincinnati, Ohio.





After reviving the old NWA/WCW pay-per-view namesake for a special Live Event last year, WWE decided to move this year’s show outside of North Carolina. Yesterday, we noted how some changes were made to the card as the previously scheduled Steel Cage Match between Becky Lynch and Charlotte Flair has been removed (see the full lineup here). At this time, Charlotte is still advertised to appear, however it’s now not known exactly in what capacity she will be used.

Additionally, many fans had hoped that this year’s Starrcade would be available on the WWE Network after missing out on last year’s and it looks like they will be getting their wish in some fashion. PWInsider was the first to report that the WWE Network schedule is listing Starrcade to air as a one-hour special next Sunday, the night after the event, at 8PM EST. Currently, there are no details on which matches from the event will air.





Which matches from Starrcade do you want to see air? Let us know on social media @theCHAIRSHOTcom and always remember to use the hashtag #UseYourHead!
