ROH Adds Six-Man Championship – ROH Wrestling

Ring of Honor will be introducing a new Six-Man Tag Team Championship with a tournament beginning at All Star Extravaganza 8.  Teams announced so far include The Bullet Club, The Cabinet, and Christopher Daniels, Frankie Kazarian & Kamaitachi.  With the popularity of six-man matches in Mexico (see also Lucha Underground) I’d expect some of the talent coming to ROH from new partner CMLL will be involved in the division as well as the teams in New Japan’s NEVER Openweight Six-Man Tag Division.

Alberto Del Rio On The Outs Again – Wrestling INC

Wrestling INC is reporting that Alberto Del Rio gave notice to WWE 60 Days ago and will not be returning once his wellness policy suspension is completed.   Things seemed to go south with Del Rio rather rapidly after the dissolution of the League of Nations and then he and Paige, who he has been romantically linked, being drafted to separate shows.

SmackDown Tournament Semifinals Set – WWE

After The Hype Bros defeat of The Vaudevillains and Rhyno & Heath Slater’s victory over the returning Headbangers, the semifinals in the tournament to crown SmackDown Tag Team Champions are set.  Next week, American Alpha faces the Usos and Hype Bros square off with Rhyno & Heath Slater.  C’mon Rhyno & Slater, Beulah needs a double wide and an in-ground pool.  The winners of next week’s matches will meet in the Finals at BackLash.

Orton-Wyatt/Ziggler-Miz at BackLash – WWE

Also coming out of last night’s SmackDown Live, The Eater of Worlds will face The Viper at BackLash.  This matchup is a sticky wicket as both men need to gain some momentum, Wyatt, fresh off another Family breakup and Orton, fresh off a Brock Lesnar thrashing.  In addition, Dolph Ziggler will challenge The Miz for the Intercontinental Championship.
