- Kevin Steen is unfortunately the new ROH World Champion after defeating Davey Richards last Saturday at “Border Wars” in Toronto.

Steen is now the 17th ROH World Champion and was very impressive by defeating one of the toughest men in the sport today. With the ROH Championship in the hands of this mad man, there is no doubt that the live events this weekend in Baltimore and Richmond will be completely unpredictable.

- This week’s “Tuesday Rollout” went old school with “Ring of Honor: Year One”! This 2-Disc DVD set features classic match-ups from 2002 including the first ever main event with Bryan Danielson vs. Christopher Daniels vs. Low Ki, the crowning of the first ROH Champion, the debut of Samoa Joe, and so much more. Also released today, the “ROH Canada” Logo T-Shirt that was on sale at “Border Wars”! You can get these two new items, along with all the other great recent releases, right here!

- Once again we would like to say how frustrated we are for everyone by the iPPV issues last Saturday and we can’t apologize enough. The issues were unacceptable to you, the fans, and we owe you and will make good to each and every one of you. As of right now, the replay is available on rohwrestling.com. As the higher quality versions are available, we will replace the file with them as well. In addition, each person that bought “Border Wars” live will receive “Best in the World 2012”, absolutely free. If is not sufficient, we will gladly offer a refund instead. All refund requests should be directed to help@rohwrestling.com with the subject header: BW Refund. For “Best in the World 2012”, we WILL work out any and all kinks. We will test several times, including in an actual PPV replicated environment, and will ask for all of your assistance in doing this. There is nothing more that we want than to bring our fans the BEST internet pay per view experience each and every time. Thank you for your understanding and continued support! We love you and we are left with a great stream that our fans can not see. If a refund is demanded, it WILL be given. Otherwise we would like to offer full retention of the replay for “Border Wars” as well as FREE access to the “Best in the World 2012” iPPV on June 24th for anyone who ordered “Border Wars” Saturday. This will also include retention of the “Best in the World 2012” iPPV in your myPPV accounts. We WILL get this right no matter what it takes in time for “Best in the World 2012”.

- Despite the technical difficulties, “Border Wars” will go down as one of the greatest Ring of Honor events of all time! You definitely want to see this event from top to bottom and words can’t express how great the fans of Toronto were last Saturday! The atmosphere was electric and the matches were awesome! Be sure to order the replay now!

- Multiple matches were announced today for our return to Baltimore THIS Friday night, May 18th! Including a World TV Title match, as well as an interview with the brand new World Champion, this taping has the potential to be a classic! Read all the details here!

- Also announced today for “Best in the World 2012”, “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin takes on “Belfast Bruiser” Fit Finlay live on iPPV!

- This Saturday night in Richmond has heated up as Jay Briscoe will battle Charlie Haas in an Unsanctioned Lights Out fight! This match was announced as a result of the horrible ending to the Tag Team Title encounter at “Border Wars” when Haas put Mark Briscoe out with an ether soaked rag. After the match last Saturday Jay Briscoe confronted ROH officials in the locker room of The Ted Reeve Arena and said he wanted to fight Haas as soon as possible. ROH officials agreed to give Jay that chance soon but it would definitely NOT be sanctioned by Ring of Honor for liability. There will be no countouts or disqualifications and the fight can only end via pinfall, submission, or knockout! ROH has agreed to provide a referee for the fight, at the expense of Jay Briscoe, but beyond that will not provide any of our traditional lighting or music or anything else that gives the impression this fight is sanctioned by Ring of Honor. In fact, this unsanctioned match will take place AFTER the announced main event between new ROH World Champion Kevin Steen/Jimmy Jacobs as they take on Davey Richards/Kyle O’Reilly! If you choose to stick around after the main event this Saturday be aware that viewer discretion is advised!

- Steve Corino shocked everyone by embracing Kevin Steen after his World Title win last Saturday at “Border Wars”. Everyone is waiting to hear what Steve Corino has to say about what happened in Toronto. We expect Steve to speak out on the situation this Friday in Baltimore at the Du Burns Arena.

- “The Dominant Male” Tommaso Ciampa suffered his first loss last Saturday since entering ROH over a year and a half ago. Jay Lethal gained retribution on Ciampa for costing him the TV Title by taking Ciampa’s undefeated streak away from him. Ciampa immediately left the Ted Reeve Arena in a rage after the bout last Saturday and has yet to be heard from by The Embassy or anyone else from ROH. Despite Ciampa’s unstable attitude, it is a true testament to his ability that he was able to remain undefeated for so long in such a vast pool of competition.

- The latest edition of “Ring of Honor” Television is available to Ringside Members by clicking here. The main event is huge as Rhino takes on ROH World Champion Davey Richards in a Proving Ground Bout! Also, representatives from CHIKARA are in Trios Action as The Colony (Fire Ant, Soldier Ant, & Green Ant) battle Ophidian & Los Ice Creams! Plus former ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal faces a former ROH World Tag Team Champion in “Cuban Crippler” Ricky Reyes and Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team will be in action!

- This week on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV you will see The All Night Express settle their feud against The Young Bucks in an elimination match! In addition, “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett with Maria Kanellis and Brutal Bob faces “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards, plus Grizzly Redwood will be in action! Click here to see if ROH airs in your area.

- Ring of Honor debuts at the Charleston Civic Center in Charleston, West Virginia on Friday, June 15th and you can expect a loaded lineup with all of the ROH stars! Our TV cameras will be on hand to tape “Road Rage” and ROH officials are in the process of signing some big matches that will be announced this week! Get your tickets right here and be a part of the electrifying atmosphere up close and personal.
