It wasn’t till I saw Colt Cabana wrestle live until I realized that his Art of Wrestling podcast theme had actual words to it!
DO NOT TRUST THIS MAN. THIS MAN IS NOT A LICENSED DOCTOR.
Colt Cabana Gives CM Punk a Pepsi Shower - ROH [8/13/2005]
One of my favorite photos of the two due to what appears to be a halo around the head of Punk.
Even it’s something that’s probably completely randomized in WWE ‘13, seeing Daniel Bryan start the match off by following the Code of Honor was pretty trippy…even if he didn’t really mean it and immediately kicked me when I went in to shake his hand.
Can anybody verify this — from WrassleGAF user Bootaaay:
“Man, ROH is so dead in the water.
They drew 220 last night in NEW JERSEY. That used to be one of their biggest markets, before the HDnet deal forced them to abandon it in 2009 - this is the first time they’ve been back since, and as if the low draw wasn’t bad enough…
First of all, the ‘free iPPV’ codes were just lying around on a merch table, and people could grab as many as they wanted, so expect a few to end up on ebay.
Secondly, in the main event between ROH Champion Kevin Steen and home-town boy Jay Lethal (which was said to be an excellent match), Steen verbally assaulted and spat upon Lethal’s family at ringside - Lethal went crazy, the two had to be separated, Steen high-tailed it to the back and Lethal followed. No one knew what was going on, until Bobby Cruise got on the mic and announced that the match was declared a no contest before shilling Final Battle to end the show. This was met with boos, ‘BULLSHIT’ & ‘REFUND’ chants and a whole load of bottles and trash being thrown in the ring.
What a GREAT way to return to a market you haven’t visited in 3 years!”
Are there any other live-results floating around online for this show?
Kenny King Tweets Out Photo Featuring Shirtless WWE Legends and Chippendale Dancers
It’s well known that the former Ring of Honor and current TNA star works as a dancer at Chippendales, but this photo he tweeted out shows off what it’d be like if some of the WWE legends shared his profession:
The most fun I’ve ever had at work. #legends
I count a total of eight wrestlers, maybe nine if the third from the top-left is Marc Mero. Can you name all the others?

This was a great show. I can’t be seen in the picture, but I’m actually standing right next to the big guy in the Anti-Flag t-shirt.

It’s a fun time to be a fan of professional wrestling.
Kenny King and Austin Aries - TNA Destination X 7/8/2012
With the PPV only a couple of hours away, there’s been some buzz on the internet regarding Kenny King’s appearance on the TNA show. King is currently one-half of the Ring of Honor Tag Team Champions and his decision to “cross the line” has had several negative reactions from RoH fans and wrestlers. The negativity stems from the belief that King was undergoing contract negotiations but gave a handshake deal to remain with the company while things were sorted out.
Ring of Honor considered King’s appearance on the July 5th Impact Wrestling as a breach of their agreement and have started to cut all ties with him (Facebook posts deleted, King is still on the RoH site though).
Since that appearance, Kenny King was pretty silent over the whole mess, until earlier today when he gave his side of the story on his Twitter page (which can be found in it’s entirety after the break).
