December 30th: Damien Wayne and Chris Escobar are highly respected by their peers in the Mid-Atlantic region and have made strides as a tag team in FIP. Now they will face their biggest test as January 16 in Manassas brings them the challenge of Brent Albright and Erick Stevens. Albright and Stevens are fresh off a street fight victory in NYC, and are preparing for war inside the steel cage against Sweet-n-Sour Incorporated. If Wayne and Escobar can pull the upset, they’ll solidify their status in ROH for sure. Or did they simply take a payday from Larry Sweeney to soften up the enemy?
December 30th: Speaking of Larry Sweeney, ROH officials have been in talks with him in reference to the actions of the American Wolves this past weekend. The blatant interference is one of the biggest factors that prompted ROH President Cary Silkin to award the Steel Cage match to Albright and Company. But even this may not be enough, as rumor has it that ROH officials feel that Richards and Edwards may need to face some specific music for their high-profile part in the Sweet-n-Sour’s most recent transgressions. More on this as it develops.

December 30th: It didn’t take long for the match to get signed, and the dawn of a new day is upon us. On January 17 in Edison, the answers to many questions should be uncovered as Tyler Black has signed to face his former mentor and AOTF leader, the maniacal Jimmy Jacobs. The history between these two men is well documented. The end of their relations came on what is considered to be ROH’s biggest stage. The blood has to be boiling in both men. Both Tyler and Jacobs were contacted for comments. Both men declined.

December 30th: ROH officials have reached out to Austin Aries to see when he wants to exercise his title shot, which he earned by defeating Tyler Black in New York. ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness has stated that he’ll accept the challenge whenever mandated by the ROH Booking Committee, but did so with a bit of trepidation, as he questions Aries “mental state”. ROH Officials have also expressed concern, as Aries’ recent actions, both in and out of the ring; have prompted many to raise issue. From the heated blood feud with Jacobs, to the happenings this past Saturday in New York, and now with Aries refusing all forms of contact from the ROH office, no one is quite sure where Aries stands.
