ROH News: WOH Triple Threat Official For Saturday Night At Center Stage

ROH Saturday Night
WOH action set for Ring Of Honor’s Saturday Night At Center Stage!

On our way into the weekend where Ring Of Honor will return to the road for Saturday Night At Center Stage in Atlanta, followed by Honor Reigns Supreme in Concord, North Carolina on Sunday, there have been a number of updates today on both events.

Earlier, ROH announced two more matches for Honor Reigns Supreme as Beer City Bruiser goes one-on-one with Mark Haskins (more info on that here), plus ROH World TV Champion Jeff Cobb takes on Jonathan Gresham, Rhett Titus and Shane Taylor in a Four Corner Survival Proving Ground Match (check that out here).

This evening, Ring Of Honor has added a new contest to Saturday Night At Center Stage as Madison Rayne, Sumie Sakai and Jenny Rose will clash in a WOH Triple Threat:

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Atlanta on Saturday, Jan. 12 for an international television taping at Center Stage. All the top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss, action-packed event.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the happenings in Atlanta undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

The Women of Honor World Championship was one of the most hotly contested championships in ROH in 2018, with Sumie Sakai needing to defeat Tenille Dashwood and Kelly Klein in the same night to become the inaugural champion before defending it globally against the world’s best. “The Gatekeeper” Kelly Klein ultimately ended her reign in dominant fashion by defeating Karen Q., Madison Rayne, and Champion Sumie at Final Battle.

With Kelly declaring every match against her a Championship match, competitors are lining up for the opportunity to get in the ring with the Champ. And three of the top Women of Honor stars will do battle in Atlanta to try to establish themselves in the rankings!

SUMIE SAKAI vs. JENNY ROSE vs. MADISON RAYNE

The first Women of Honor World Champion looks to regroup and reclimb the rankings against two stars she has defeated in 2018, protégé Jenny Rose and international star Madison Rayne! But Jenny and Madison look to gain ground themselves.

For Jenny, a victory would be the biggest of her Women of Honor career while a win for Madison would firmly entrench her back in title contention. In the very building where Madison had her first shot at the Women of Honor World Championship, she has the opportunity to jump to the front of the line with a victory.

Who will win this Women of Honor clash between three top contenders for the World Championship? Join us to find out!

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More! (6/14/19)

News Involving CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More! (6/14/19)

News here! CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More!

New Wrestling Promotion Launches

2019 has been a very busy year for wrestling, especially when it comes to new promotions launching. Former WWE stars Alberto Del Rio and Chavo Guerrero have partnered together to launch Nacion Lucha Libre. Some of the announced roster includes MVP, Carlito, Del Rio’s former ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, LAX, and Pentagon. Del Rio has also hinted in signing currently contracted WWE stars when their contracts run up.

Jason’s Take

Obviously, this won’t be direct competition with the WWE, however it can draw fans away from the Mexico fan base the company has attempted to build. I am wondering if even though fans are unhappy with WWE, if all these new promotions are leading to an over saturation of product.

Moxley vs Omega At All Out

You have to hand it to AEW, as they are creating some very interesting matchups. Today, the company announced that Jon Moxley will take on Kenny Omega at the August 1st All Out event.

Jason’s Take

This matchup is intriguing to say the least. Two completely different styles of wrestling, creating what I hope to be a great match. This one shouldn’t dissapoint.

CM Punk All In On All Out?

One of the big names that has long been rumored to join AEW is CM Punk. Punk seems to be done with wrestling, but every time AEW has announced an event, fans start up the rumor mill. With the upcoming All Out show taking place in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, many speculate Punk will make an appearance. Punk seems to have shot down that speculation in his latest Tweet.

Jason’s Take

Wrestling has always been a business where a person never could say never. While it is unlikely that Punk signs with AEW, there will always be the speculation that he will. But what would Punk offer to the upstart company? Name recognition ? Could Punk still go in the ring ?

SmackDown On FOX Commercials Start To Air

We all know that SmackDown will be moving to FOX this October, and the network paid a lot of money for WWE programing. FOX looks like it has the wheels in motion for the promotional blitz informing network viewers that SmackDown is heading to the network. Below is a commercial that has been airing, and many are pointing out that the advertisement contains a redesigned logo for the show.

Jason’s Take

FOX spent a lot of money to get WWE programming, so it’s no surprise that they are airing commercials four months in advance. Or could it be that FOX is worried about the low ratings that WWE programming has been generating?

AEW Fyter Fest To Stream For Free

This week is the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo being held in Los Angeles. During Tuesday’s festivities, Kenny Omega appeared and announced that the upcoming Fyter Fest will stream live, and be free for everyone. It is not known where it will air, but many are assuming it will air on B/R Live. Fyter Fest is June 29th @ 8pm EST.

Jason’s Take

This will only help broaden the exposure of AEW, and I am all for this airing live for free. I have to hand it to AEW, because it seems like they are everywhere. Fyter Fest looks like it will be a stacked card so far, with Jon Moxley taking on Joey Janella. I am going to go out on a limb here, and say that the match will be a violent one.

All Out News

Speaking of AEW, they do have another big show coming up on August 31st, entitled, All Out. The main event of the show will see the crowning of the first AEW Champion, as Chris Jericho takes on Hangman Page. On Tuesday, Cody Rhodes announced ticket prices for the event. Tickets will range from $30 to $190. Rhodes also Tweeted a seating chart of the event.

Jason’s Take

All Out will most likely be the last pay per view event before weekly TV starts in October. So I fully expect that the company will go all out (no pun intended) in terms of matches, etc.

Chris Jericho On Goldberg/Undertaker

In Monday’s shuffle, I discussed the much talked about match (and not in a good way) at Super ShowDown between Undertake and Goldberg. Many people throughout the wrestling world have weighed with their opinions on the match, and the latest to do so is Chris Jericho.

Jason’s Take

It is an interesting perspective from Jericho. Though, Ozzy Osbourne can’t sing at all anymore, and it’s embarrassing to watch. Anyway……Both Undertaker and Goldberg are legends from their era, but I do think it’s time they hang it up or move into non performance roles.

Cesaro Injured On RAW?

During the six man tag team match on RAW, it appeared that Cesaro was inured when Ricochet landed badly on his leg when he hit the 630 splash. After the match, Cesaro was helped to the back by WWE officials. According to Dave Meltzer, the chatter backstage is that he was not injured during the spot.

Jason’s Take

One of those times where a painful spot just happens. I thought for sure Cesaro either broke or pulled something right after the move, so here is hoping he is ok.
