Update: ROH TONIGHT In Philadelphia

Update: ROH TONIGHT In Philadelphia

Ring Of Honor will continue its 5th birthday party TONIGHT as the Fifth Year Festival comes to Philadelphia. No city is richer in ROH history than Philly. You have supported us for five years. You have made ROH grow. Tonight is our chance to thank you.

It will be a bittersweet night for Samoa Joe. Tonight will be Joe's final ROH match in Philadelphia. This is where is all started for Joe. Last night was emotional for Joe in Manhattan. The emotions are sure to run high again tonight. Joe's original opponent Davey Richards is sidelined with an injury. Samoa Joe will now face Jimmy Rave tonight.

Rave took ROH World Champion Homicide to the limit last night in Manhattan. Rave even used the Styles Clash, a move he is banned from using. ROH officials originally were going to suspend Rave for tonight. However, Joe told ROH officials to let him dish out the punishment in the ring. Rave attacked Joe just a few weeks ago in Boston. Now tonight Joe will make him pay the price.

Roderick Strong stunned a sold out Manhattan Center last night when he turned on Austin Aries and joined Davey Richards in a new faction called the New Remorse Corps. Jack Evans made the save for Aries, but refused to join Aries in challenging Strong. Evans stated that both are his friends. This situation is sure to continue tonight.

It is always an event when ROH comes to Philadelphia. Tonight will be even more special as we all celebrate five years of ROH in Philly. This is where the spirit, atmosphere and identity were born. You made ROH what it is today. Join us tonight for this milestone show. Tickets will be available at the door. Here is the updated lineup with new matches:
