-- SITE NOTE: As most of you know by now, I will be taking the train down to New York City today to cover tonight's ROH i-PPV event. I'd order the i-PPV at GFL.tv if you've got a few extra bucks as this card is sick from top to bottom. Anyways, my train leaves around 11AM and doesn't get back here to Albany, NY until around 3AM tomorrow (Saturday) morning. With that being said, news will be very slow this afternoon and tonight. I threw up a few posts this morning and I'll update the rest of the news on tomorrow (Saturday) morning. Thanks for your continued support of the website and I'll see you tomorrow. Have a great holiday weekend guys!
