The Motor City Machine Guns of Alex Shelley & Chris Sabin will not be able to appear at the 10/24 & 10/25 events due to a scheduling conflict. We apologize for the lineup change.
However, we feel we have a suitable replacement. Former ROH World Champion Homicide and his regular partner Hernandez, known as LAX, will now wrestle on the 10/24 Danbury, CT and 10/25 Edison, NJ events. It will be a homecoming weekend for Homicide in Ring Of Honor.
Homicide is one of the founding fathers of ROH. His feuds against Samoa Joe, CZW, Steve Corino and Colt Cabana have gone in the history books as some of the greatest feuds in ROH history. Homicide reached the apex of ROH when he won the World Title at “Final Battle 2006” in a sold out Manhattan Center to end Bryan Danielson’s 15 month reign. “The Notorious 187” has been involved in some of ROH’s greatest moments and matches. He has earned “ROH Legend” status and now for the first time in well over a year he will return to the ROH ring.
Homicide has devoted his time since ROH to teaming with the powerhouse Hernandez as LAX. Together, Homicide & Hernandez have gained recognition as one of the top tag teams in the sport. The duo has never tested themselves against ROH’s rich tag team roster. Now they will get thrown into the fire of the ROH tag team division.
We will have more information on both shows including LAX’s matches by the end of the week. We assure you that LAX will be in main event quality matches.
Thank you for all your support.
