A very big moment is happening in ROH. There is going to be an epic match between Jay Lethal and Jay Briscoe on June 19, 2015 in New York City. After a very long buildup to this moment, both the World Heavyweight Championship and World Television Championship will be on the line, with one man walking away as a double champion. Ring of Honor is banking big time on this pay per view being able to draw in new fans.

Apparently, ROH wants a lot of international talent for their upcoming series of matches in Philadelphia and Toronto. In addition to Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada, the company has now secured the services of Tetsuya Naito. For those of you that do not remember, the veteran performer worked a couple of matches for TNA, including a handicap match against Kevin Nash on Impact Wrestling. No word yet on who he will be working with.

During the middle of May, New Japan and ROH are teaming up to put on a couple of shows. Two of them will be in Philadelphia at the old ECW arena, while the other two will be held in Toronto. To help make those events even more special, Hiroshi Tanahashi and Kazuchika Okada will be featured on the card. No word yet on what matches they are being booked for, but the safe bet is that Ring of Honor will use their top stars against them.

Earlier in the week, Samoa Joe was spotted hanging out with other wrestlers at Walemania. It's not all fun and games, however. The former world heavyweight champion worked a match for ROH, where he challenged Jay Briscoe for their version of the heavyweight championship. Briscoe successfully retained, but that does not come as a surprise to those who believe that Joe will be signing up with the WWE developmental program soon.

Apparently, WWE has had a change of heart in regards to Jimmy Jacobs. Initially, they were going to have him writing NXT to prove his worth. However, his backers in the company were able to convince the decision makers to graduate him to the main roster instead. He will be writing content for both Monday Night Raw and Smackdown now. Jacobs is working his last match with ROH this week and will be hanging up the boots.

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. There is a very good chance that Jacobs will more than likely take the short commute to attend the pay per view in person.
