Tonight Ring of Honor’s huge return to the The Sunshine State is just days away! And not only will you see a full night of ROH action LIVE, the whole thing will be taped for ROH TV! On October 25th, the ROH RELOADED tour is barreling into Lakeland and here’s what you can look forward to: PLUS…100% confirmed…”UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN RETURNS TO ROH ACTION IN LAKELAND!
This is what’s been posted on Michael Elgin’s Facebook :
This is what I just received. I was threatened with legal action.
We already have the flight bought (which you should have gotten already). No room to eat the costs. It will all be fine and you can come back and get back to normal. There is really no choice because if you are not in Florida it will get messy and we don’t want that.
We want to finish this out and then we can see what to do next.
In Florida we will do a match and an interview. In the interview you need to apologize and be sure to reference Kalamazoo by name since it is a TV market. Do NOT mention the visa situation. Just say that you have had personal issues that kept you away. Reference the World Title and say you respect Jay Briscoe. It doesn’t need to be long but we need to make sure you talk about your remorse for missing events, etc.
Lets just do this the easy way and get through the tapings starting fresh. You have been great here for the last couple years and it is in all of our best interests to keep it going like it was before. I don’t want to see you make another mistake so it is best to listen to us in this regard.
It’s time again for a new playlist. And well, this is the time! In this weeks edition of the playlist entitled “The 4410.” We are featuring Amazing Red! The former TNA X-Division Champion and ROH Tag Team Champion.
Why have we chosen Amazing Red? Well it’s quite simple, we just saw him this past weekend and it was our first time seeing Red in such a long time. In fact that’s why we’re calling this “The 4410” because that’s how many days it’s been since I’ve last seen him wrestle live.
Yep, that is a lot of days. How many days ago was that actually? Well, a lot. We’ll have to go back to 2002 to get a little closer. In fact it’d have to be September 21st. Yep, October 18th, 2014 to September 21st, 2002. That’s where we counted. Or at least hopefully counted right.
We saw him wrestle Jay Briscoe at ROH’s Unscripted event in South Philly at the Murphy Rec. And due to not being able to find the match anywhere but some foreign website we’ll link yeah to that. And sadly, it won’t be in The 4410.
But don’t be sad, there’s still tons of great Amazing Red clips on the YouTube. So check them out and say hey thanks Red!
Justin Roberts the ring announcer for WWE has just been released from his contract.
Roberts who started with the WWE in 2002 is just 34 years old and joins Josh Mathews as another former WWE Announcer just recently released.
The WWE posted this story on their website wishing Roberts “the best in all his future endeavors.”
Is Roberts a big enough name to splash into the Independent scene? Will he show up in the other nationally televised wrestling companies of TNA or ROH?
Monday was a huge day for Ring of Honor (ROH) as they announced that Michael Elgin will be returning at this Saturday’s ROH live event in Kalamazoo, Michigan. They wrote on their official site:
“Its public knowledge now, that due to clerical issues Michael Elgin could not leave Canada for a period of time. Ring of Honor officials and legal counsel quickly jumped in to assist in getting him back home as soon as possible. Michael Elgin has now returned to the United States and we are pleased to announce that he will appear THIS Saturday in Kalamazoo, Michigan!
“2014 was record setting for Michael Elgin and Ring of Honor officials are expecting ‘Unbreakable’ Michael Elgin to return with a new demeanor, a new fire and a new passion!! Elgin has surpassed all expectations put on him and this current setback is not nearly enough to curtail the former champion!!
“Get your tickets for this Saturday’s Champions vs. All-Stars in Kalamazoo today!”
Yet that wasn’t all! After posting all of this on Twitter Michael Elgin replied: “I said this on our call, thank you for getting me back home. But, an article doesn’t fix lies and damage done. I QUIT.”
So with that being said we don’t know if that’s it for ROH and Michael Elgin or just a work. But we do know that this may me Michael Elgin’s independent wrestling tour. So stay tuned!
