-- ACH and QT Marshall have been announced as the first two competitors for the ROH Top Prospect Tournament. Mike Bennett won the first tournament in 2011 toward the end of ROH's run on HDNet. The tournament will start on the first round of TV tapings of 2013 on January 5th.

-- The following was sent out today…

"In each of us, two natures are at war -- the good and the evil. All our lives the fight goes on between them, and one of them must conquer. But in our own hands lies the power to choose -- what we want most to be, we are."

- Robert Louis Stevenson

Two natures firmly at war: Colt "Boom Boom" Cabana and "Scrap Iron" Adam Pearce.

And so it was: Friends for half a lifetime, coming apart at the seams, and their journeys culminating in a series of battles so brutal, so filled with vitriol, that these seven battles could only be described by one word: HATE.

Seven different matches. Seven different stipulations. Seven different cities around the world.

This is the story of independent wrestling's greatest rivalry.

This is SEVEN LEVELS OF HATE.
