ROH voice Ian Riccaboni to miss this weekend’s events

By Jason Powell, Editor (@prowrestlingnet)

Ring of Honor play-by-play voice Ian Riccaboni announced that he will not be appearing at this weekend’s events in Florida. Riccaboni noted that his wife is pregnant with their second child and she is expected to give birth this weekend. “It comes with a surprising amount of guilt,” Riccaboni wrote of missing the shows. “I just signed a new deal. It is easier to record commentary live in building for TV, etc. But the ROH team didn’t blink. It means the world.”

Powell’s POV: I’ll bet evil genius Riccaboni planned nine months ago to impregnate his wife and then miss the first weekend of events shortly after signing his new deal with the company. All joking aside, there is nothing to feel guilty about when it comes to putting family first. Good for ROH officials for making the situation as easy as possible for Riccaboni, and best of luck to him and his wife with the new arrival. ROH is taping television on Saturday in Lakeland, Florida, and they will be live on HonorClub on Sunday night with a show from Coral Gables, Florida.
