ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness is working very hard to ensure that the debut in California, PA is one that will leave fans buzzing. He has just signed an amazing main event with championship implications.

**MAIN EVENT**
THE BRISCOES vs THE YOUNG BUCKS (NICK & MATT JACKSON)

When the former 8x ROH World Tag Team Champion Briscoe’s decided to reunite, their goal was to redefine the tag team division that they feel they established as the best in the world. What better way to show off the best tag team division in professional wrestling than having The Briscoe’s face off against The Young Bucks?

The Briscoe’s are legends in Ring of Honor, facing and defeating every great tag team the division has ever seen. A record 8 tag team title reigns together, former Pro Wrestling NOAH GHC Jr Tag Team Champions, 2 individual ROH World Title reigns for Jay Briscoe means these two are building a legacy that is likely untouchable.

The Young Bucks, Nick & Matt Jackson are considered by most to be the best tag team in the world. The braggadocios members of the vaunted Bullet Club are no slouches when it comes to championships. They are former ROH World Tag Team Champions, 3x former IWGP Jr Heavyweight Tag Team Champions and winners of the 2013 New Japan Super Jr. Tag Team Tournament.

These two teams are not strangers to each other, last knocking heads over a year ago in Milwaukee WI. The Briscoes came out victorious in that one, but the game has since changed. The Young Bucks have set the tag team world on fire with a style that can’t be matched. The Bucks have won numerous championships since then and show the confidence that they firmly believe they are the best tag team today!

The Briscoe’s will not come into this battle overconfident. They are not the tag team they are by not preparing themselves correctly. The Young Bucks are known to take to the air to confuse foes, while the Briscoe’s are underrated when it comes to taking to the air, but their forte is using their hands to lump up their opponents.

If The Briscoe’s are going to redefine the tag team division, they couldn’t have picked a better tag team to start with! You will want to be there to see two of the very best tag teams in the world do battle! Get your tickets now!

ROH Announces Huge Tag Team Match

More TNA Paycheck Problems, Two Important Departments Moving From Panda Energy To TNA HQ

Source: PWInsider Elite

There were rumblings within TNA last week about more employees being paid late but apparently the company has been catching those people up this week.

These delays were blamed on the TNA legal department and the payroll department moving from Texas to Nashville. Both departments were previously housed with TNA parent company Panda Energy in Texas but they are now moving to Nashville with the rest of the TNA offices. Apparently payroll was just moved from Nashville to Texas earlier this year and it’s already moving back.

This could be a sign that Panda is pushing TNA away or that TNA is moving away from Panda on their own.

WWE issued this statement on the news:

“WWE expresses its continued sympathy to the Argentino family for their loss. Ultimately this legal matter will be decided by our judicial system.”

Jim Ross Blogs About Hogan's Apology, Bram Getting Arrested, Sting Vs. Seth Rollins

Source: JR’s BBQ

Jim Ross has posted a new blog over at his website. You can check out a few highlights below, and the full post at this link.

Hulk Hogan‘s apology:

“1 missed the Hulk Hogan on ABC appearance Monday morning and it will be interesting to see the fallout or lack thereof will be on this matter as the week progresses. I’ve never considered Hogan a racist but obviously his choice of words is unacceptable in any environment. Hopefully, his public will forgive him and he can get on with the business of being “The Hulkster” and earning a living of which everyone has the right to do. Forgiveness isn’t a foreign term and can still be done in today’s cynical world if the individual seeking forgiveness is sincere and I have every reason to believe that Hogan is sincere as his rant was embarrassing and humiliating with the ability to completely wreck one’s career.”

Bram’s arrest:

“Sad to hear that TNA’s now suspended Bram has been arrested on two, felony counts of domestic battery in Florida. It might be challenging for the Brit to keep his credentials to stay in the USA under these circumstances considering that he has an existing arrest record that prompted him to get released by WWE. The entire matter is unfortunate as Bram aka Thomas Latimer is a solid talent who I thought had a significant upside when I first saw him in WWE developmental. I’d be shocked if TNA retained his services if these charges are validated. Plus, one has to feel empathy for the alleged victim.”

Sting vs. Seth Rollins:

“The Sting-Rollins NOC Title bout is intriguing to me on a variety of fronts. It’s great to see old friend Sting get to headline a major WWE event even thought as I write this he has yet to win a WWE bout if you’re keeping score at home. Perhaps tonight will change that piece of business unless WWE is ‘saving’ Sting’s next in ring appearance for NOC. Rollins is evolving into a top hand without question and it will be interesting to see how he and Sting compliment each other’s strengths on September 20 in Houston. I like the booking. I think the match will out perform some skeptics predictions and that it should be a significant night for young, Rollins. Or does Sting score the upset and Sheamus cashes in the MITB Contract to become the Champ? I assume any thing is possible but I see Rollins retaining.”

Backstage News – Philadelphia, PA Submits A Bid To Host WWE WrestleMania 34

Crossing Broad reports that Philadelphia has reportedly submitted a bid to get WrestleMania 34 in 2018. The city previously held WrestleMania XV in 1999.

Also read: The First City To Submit A Bid To Host WrestleMania 34 In 2018 Revealed

The city made “token offers” for WrestleMania 31 and 32, which ended up going to Santa Clara and Dallas. Philadelphia Sports Congress Executive Director Larry Needle later said that the fact that venues were unavailable is why no serious bids were made. There was also rumors that Lincoln Field Memorial representatives were “difficult” to work with and treated the WWE like they were “doing them a favor.” A similar attitude was rumored during negotiations for the 2012 Winter Classic which Citizens Bank Park eventually hosted.

Now a more substantial bid has been placed to get the event in 2018. Lincoln Financial Field would host WrestleMania 34, while NXT and RAW events will be at the Wells Fargo Center and WrestleMania AXXESS will happen at the Convention Center (host of the WrestleMania RAGE party in 1999).

​BREAKING UPDATE: Jimmy Snuka Arrested & Charged With Murder

WWE Hall of Famer “Superfly” Jimmy Snuka was arrested this morning at his New Jersey home and will be charged with third-degree murder and involuntary manslaughter for the death of his girlfriend more than 32 years ago.

Snuka was arraigned at 1:50 p.m. Tuesday at the Lehigh County Central Booking Center. He was sent to county jail under $100,000 bail.

Earlier this month, Snuka’s wife revealed that he was diagnosed with stomach cancer.

Back on May 10th, 1983, Snuka wrestled on a WWE TV taping from the Allentown Fairgrounds in Pennsylvania. When he got back to his hotel room, he alleged that he found Nancy Argentino gasping for air and oozing yellow fluid from her nose and mouth. She died the following day from traumatic brain injures. She also had a number of cuts and bruises which suggested domestic abuse.

The autopsy report stated her injuries were consistent with being hit with a “stationary object.” The forensic pathologist suggested that the case be invested as a homicide, but no charges were filed until today.

An investigation was reopened last year when Pennsylvania’s Morning Call newspaper published an in-depth story on the alleged murder, which led to a grand jury investigation that ultimately resulted in Snuka being charged.
