November 17th will end up being one of the biggest non-televised wrestling nights of the year for ROH and WWE. As previously noted, Shawn Michaels was announced as the special referee for the NXT Championship match between Drew McIntyre and Adam Cole. The move appears to be in response to ROH announcing plans to run in San Antonio. ROH fired back earlier this week when The Bullet Club announced that the would be inviting The McMahon’s to attend the show in San Antonio and any person with the last name “McMahon” would get a 10% discount on tickets. I should note that ROH was the first company to announce plans to run in San Antonio.
Well, ROH has fired another shot at WWE because Kenny Omega has been added to the show.
Ring Of Honor announced the following:
San Antonio…Ring of Honor has been planning a huge event to kick of this year’s Survival of the Fittest Tour.
