As some of you might already know, ROH is doing a show in Redwood City during Wrestlemania weekend. Jimmy Jacobs is working a match that day against BJ Whitmer. It is being said that this will be his farewell match. He is leaving Ring of Honor and heading over to a creative position with WWE.

In a move that many thought would be impossible, it now appears that WWE will be signing Samoa Joe to a contract very soon.

For those of you that watched the ROH anniversary show, you already know that Luke Gallows was not there. It was a noticeable absence since Karl Anderson had to work the triple threat tag team match by himself. Officials opted to not utilize a replacement since it enabled them to have Anderson doing the job without looking weak. Gallows was forced to miss the event because he was snowed in at the airport in Detroit on Sunday night.
