-- Dragon Gate USA has signed Sami Callihan and Rich Swann to new two-year deal extensions.
-- Speaking of Callihan, he was banged up at the EVOLVE iPPV over the weekend. During his match with Masada, he took a hard shot to the mouth that loosened his teeth and also suffered a rib injury. Callihan was sick after the bout but went on to work the CZW iPPV later that night.
-- The Jon Davis heel turn was to add some depth to the heel side of the roster. Gabe Sapolsky was reportedly very happy with how the turn came across and how it was reacted too.
-- There should be announcements on November DGUSA dates and the creation of an EVOLVE title coming soon.
-- ROH sent out the following today…
HARDY HEADING TO DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR
International superstar Matt Hardy paid Ring of Honor a surprise visit in Charlotte, NC during "Caged Hostility" to check out all the competition that had come up since he last appeared here back in the summer of 2005.
Intrigued by what he saw, Hardy expressed an interest to come back and check things out again soon so ROH officials invited him to come back anytime. Still, they were shocked at just how soon he meant! After a phone call last night, plans were very quickly set in motion and we here at ROH are very excited to announce that THIS Saturday night at "Death Before Dishonor X", Matt Hardy will be in the house!!!
The line-up for the event is already quite jam packed, so Hardy will not be competing, but has promised to sit-down prior to the start of the event for an autograph signing with the great Chicagoland area fans at the Frontier Fieldhouse!
Last time Matt was there was at "Punk: The Final Chapter" in August 2005 when Roderick Strong defeated Hardy in the center of the ring so he has told ROH officials he is quite excited to see those fans again.
