Ring Rust Review: ROH

This column has been focusing on TNA and WWE wrestling. Today I will discuss the third major United States brand Ring of Honor. If you’re a pure wrestling fan than Ring of Honor is for you.  They are quietly building an impressive stable of wrestlers, even with the loss of Brian Danielson (Daniel Bryan) and Nigel McGuiness (Desmond Wolfe) and the rumored loss of current champion Tyler Black. They have added some solid performers including Daivari and Chris Daniels. The August 3rd taping focused on Ring of Honor’s strong tag team division with the start of the Tag Wars 2010 tournament and ended in a double main event featuring the Briscoe Brothers and The Kings of Wrestling.

The exciting news for those who didn’t hear is the return of The World’s Greatest Tag Team Charlie Hass and Shelton Benjamin. They will return to action against Chris Hero and Claudio Castagnoli, The Kings of Wrestling on September 11th during the Ring of Honor Internet pay-per-view Glory by Honor.  The card may also feature the last Ring of Honor match of Tyler Black the current champion. If you believe the wrestling newswire he has signed a deal with WWE, perhaps as the next NXT contestant.  Good luck to Tyler or whatever his new name will be.

Rumors that ROH star Delirious is being looked at by TNA are not surprising, both TNA and WWE are trying to farm ROH stars for their respective promotions; some of the current TNA/WWE rosters are full of ROH alumni including A.J. Styles, Samoa Joe, CM Punk, Evan Bourne, and Matt Striker among others.  Those who complain about the lack of wrestling or just need a break from the constant crap that comes out of the WWE and TNA then spend the $15 and check out Glory by Honor on September 11th until then as always–let’s watch.
