Black loses the belt at Glory by Honor IX


Last night we would see the crowing of a new Ring of Honor Champion at the Glory By Honor IX online pay-per-view on Saturday. Roderick Strong defeated Tyler Black to win the championship. From all reports told, it was an excellent match that left the fans happy.

I don’t think this came as a surprise to anyone though. Everyone knew Black was heading to the WWE. So it seemed highly unlikely that he would leave the winner in this one. It should be interesting to see how Black’s career goes from this point on.

New match added to Nights of Champion

In case you haven’t heard the news. The WWE has added another match to the Night of Champions Card. They announced the other day that Koffi Kingston will be fighting Dolph Ziggler for the IC strap. This feud has been going on for some time now.

Most of the matches have ended in either count outs or DQs. I am hoping that this bout ends in a clean pin, and we can move on with this feud. In order for Dolph to benefit from being the champ he has to pick up some strong wins.

 McMahon is falling in the polls

Former WWE CEO Linda McMahon is losing by two points in the latest Polls released yesterday gauging U.S. Senate race in Connecticut between McMahon and Richard Blumenthal.

Blumenthal increased his lead to 53 vs. 44 percent. The favorability rating also shows Blumenthal has a 62 percent favorable score and a 38 percent unfavorable score. McMahon has a 49 percent favorable and unfavorable rating.

 The McMahon vs. Blumenthal f takes place Tuesday, November 2 in the general election voting or one of the two U.S. Senate seats.
