Tag Team Title Match Added to ROH 13th Anniversary PPV

Professional wrestling is a sport renowned for spectacle and showmanship. We have grown so accustomed to this spectacle that we almost assume any claim to fame will be painted with a little hyperbole. But sometimes there are athletes who need no hype; there are athletes who need no exaggeration. reDRagon and The Young Bucks are the top two teams in professional wrestling today – period. They have reached a level of excellence where this claim isn’t even debatable. They are the best. And each team can credit the other for pushing them to the next level.

The rivalry between reDRagon and The Young Bucks has reached literally global levels of acclaim and competition. They have battled each other in three nations while trading two internationally recognized championships between them: the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championship and the ROH World Tag Team Championship. Currently, reDRagon hold both of these championships. But now this storied rivalry will write another chapter…and it’s for the ROH World Tag Team Championship LIVE on Pay-Per-View!

Hulk Hogan talks about in-ring future and possible WM 31 match

Hulk Hogan recently spoke with BANG Showbiz about a possible return to the ring for WWE. Via ContactMusic.com, below is what Hogan had to say:

“I got some advice from a wise man, his name is Vince McMahon and he said, ‘Never, say never.’ I’m back home in the WWE, this is where I started, I’m home and to end the legacy and put the period on the end of the sentence I am training right now like I’m getting ready for the WWE Championship. You just never know when Hulk Hogan is going to tear the house down. It could be any time, it could be anywhere. I am training and getting ready for my last match, my last run or my retirement match. It’s not over until the fat lady sings and I haven’t put the period at the end of the sentence yet.”

Hogan also commented on a potential match at WrestleMania 31:

“If it happened I would want it to be the greatest match of all time, of course … If it’s the end of my career and a huge emotional send-off that would be great, or if it’s the beginning of another huge run for Hulkamania and me chasing the dream of winning the WWE title, that would be brilliant. I’m thinking very positively about getting back in the ring.”
