-The Ring of Honor Best in the World pay-per-view will be held tonight in Concord, North Carolina at Cabarrus Arena. The show is headlined by Jay Lethal vs. Jay Briscoe for the ROH Title. Join me for live coverage tonight at 8:00 p.m. CT. I will be recording an exclusive audio review for Dot Net Members either late tonight or on Saturday. Today’s Prowrestling.net All Access Daily Podcast will feature Darren Gutteridge and Haydn Gleed delivering a preview of the event.
-We are looking for correspondents for the following WWE and ROH events listed below as well as the NXT events that we listed yesterday. If you are attending a show and want to help, send your report (or basic results) to firstname.lastname@example.org
-WWE is in Boston, Massachusetts at TD Garden on Saturday with the following advertised lineup: Dean Ambrose vs. Seth Rollins for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens.
-Ring of Honor is taping television on Saturday in Concord, North Carolina at Cabarrus Arena. The event is scheduled to be Roderick Strong’s final date with the company.
-WWE is in Orlando, Florida at Amway Center on Sunday with the following advertised matches: Finn Balor and Shinsuke Nakamura vs. Austin Aries and Samoa Joe. The advertised main event was Roman Reigns vs. Seth Rollins. Dean Ambrose is advertised for this event, so it could be Ambrose vs. Rollins. However, Ambrose is also advertised for the Jacksonville event and is listed as the champion, so the advertising is new. The shows have the same start time and are roughly 145 miles apart, so I’m curious to see how they handle this one. Get The Shield helicopter ready!
-WWE is in Jacksonville, Florida at Jacksonville Veteran’s Memorial Arena on Sunday with the following advertised lineup: Dean Ambrose vs. Sami Zayn vs. Kevin Owens in a Triple Threat Match for the WWE World Heavyweight Championship, Rusev vs. Apollo Crews for the U.S. Championship, and New Day vs. The Lucha Dragons vs. The Vaudevillians for the WWE Tag Team Championship.
-TNA announced that they will return to Orlando, Florida at Universal Studios for television tapings on July 12-14.
-The next Evolve date is July 17 in Melrose, Massachusetts.
