February 16, 2009 | Posted by Larry Csonka

– ROH will announce matches for the debut TV tapings later this week. The shows will be an introduction/sampler to the product.

– ROH is still working to sign some of the talent to new deals, as many of them are up here in the spring.

– In recent interviews, Paul London has been very evasive when talk comes to ROH. This leaves many to believe that he will be returning to the company, possibly in Houston, since he is a native of the area.

– ROH still has interest in bringing in Val Venis at some point.

– The word going around is that Dragon Gate will no longer be working with ROH. It is believed that the split happed a while back, but that it is just coming out now.

– The following has been announced for the February 27th show in Danbury, CT:
* ROH Title Elimination Rules Match: Nigel McGuinness © vs. Tyler Black vs. Jerry Lynn vs. Jimmy Jacobs
* Street Fight: Brodie Lee vs. Necro Butcher
* Rhett Titus and Kenny King vs. Erick Stevens and Bobby Dempsey

– ROH released the following announcement, regarding Bryan Danielson’s Theme Music:

“ROH Officials have heard the comments of several fans as it pertains to the ring music used by Bryan Danielson. Rest assured that ROH has exhausted itself trying to find an economically feasible way to keep the loved “Final Countdown” playing at live events, on PPV, and on the upcoming HDNet Television Production. We, unfortunately, are at a standstill. Royalty fees are astronomical, and we need your help. If you are a musician, or know a great band, please email [email protected]. We know that music is a huge part of any event, ROH notwithstanding, and we want to do it right!”
