The newest issue of Figure Four Weekly is up on the site for subscribers (subscribe here) with a detailed look at the early days of Ring of Honor in light of them “officially” becoming the numbr two promotion in the United States this past week. Topics covered include:

Tuesday Daily Update

— WWE’s list of the final 40 for Tough Enough includes only two wrestlers with any kind of name recognition: Adam “The Big O” Ohriner (Zack Ryder’s big jacked up friend) and OVW’s Michael/Mike Hayes. There are a handful of lesser known indie wrestlers on there as well, plus lots of models, bodybuilders, and fitness competitors on top of those who haven’t been identified as anyone we “should” know as of yet. WWE has an interview with Ryder talking about Ohriner on YouTube.

— ROH is now pushing Samoa Joe’s appearance at their June 20th New York City show as his final appearance in the promotion, Presumably, that means he’s signed his full-time talent booking contract with WWE or has committed to doing so. Joe and A.J. Styles will take on ROH Tag Team Champions The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) at the show, which is a TV taping, though the main event bout itself is expected to be a dark match.

— ROH also announced that the previous night’s “Best in the World” pay-per-view will be available for streaming via the Flipps app, which carried the English version of Wrestle Kingdom in January to mixed reviews. It’s used to facilitate a stream to various TV-connected devices, including many DLNA-certified set top boxes.

— John Layfield’s wife, Meredith Whitney, has settled a lawsuit over some kind of hedge fund shenanigans.

— UFC announced that due to an injury to Miles Jury, Paul Felder is replacing him against Edson Barboza on the July 25th Chicago card that’s airing on Fox. That’s a much, much more exciting fight on paper, and it matches up really well for Felder.

— Not a lot of details yet, but the California State Athletic Commission has suspended Bellator fighter Mike Richman for two years for failing a drug test the night of his fight against Eduardo Dantas. No indication yet what type of substance he tested positive for. Richman missed weight badly in that fight to the point that it was almost cancelled.

— Results from Chris Hero’s “Infinity Gauntlet” ALS benefit Sunday at Smash Wrestling in Waterloo, Ontario where he wrestled for three straight hours:

 
#01- Chris Hero d. Rip Impact
#02 – Rich Swann d. Chris Hero
#03 – Jason Kincaid d. Chris Hero 
#04- Chris Hero d. Tarik
#05- Chris Hero d. Tyler Thomas
#06 – Chris Hero d. Brent Banks
#07 – Facade d. Chris Hero
#08 – Sebastian Suave d. Chris Hero
#09 – Chris Hero d. Tarik
#10 – Chris Hero d. Ben Ortmanns
#11 – Chris Hero d. Rip Impact
#12 – Jason Kincaid d. Chris Hero
#13 – Chris Hero d. Tyler Thomas
#14 – Chris Hero d. Brent Banks
#15 – Chris Hero d. Tarik
#16 – Chris Hero d. Facade
#17 – Chris Hero & Rich Swann go to a draw as time expires
 
Tarik was previously eliminated 3x by Hero. He donated $180 for 10 more minutes. Tarik used the Smash Wrestling Championship to knock out Hero multiple times all leading to DQ wins for Hero. An unconscious Hero was then pinned numerous times by Tarik who left the ring laughing to end of the Infinity Gauntlet.

— Upcoming Smash Wrestling dates at the Franklin Horner Community Centre on 432 Horner Ave in Toronto, Ontario:

RIVAL SCHOOLS on JULY 19

— Dave’s “Fortunes Changed for Five” postmortem for this past Saturday night’s UFC card went up this morning at MMAFighting.

— Rob Naylor and Wes Hatch join Kris Zellner on the latest episode of Exile on Badstreet to talk about the top workers of on the indies in the early 2000s.

— The heavy metal band “Unlocking the Truth” was on ABC’s The View today and said they got into metal because they used to go to wrestling shows and the background music was always heavy metal. Well, they’re certainly not the only people that can say something like that. (Thanks to Jeff Beecher.)

— Brutus Beefcake talks to Devon Nicholson about Randy Savage and Superstar Billy Graham.
