Sumie Sakai Brings the Women of Honor Title to the ROH Game!

The history of women’s wrestling in Ring of Honor begins and ends with Sumie Sakai…literally!  Back in 2002 Sakai was victorious in the first-ever women’s match in ROH.  Now in 2018, she won the tournament to crown the first-ever Women of Honor champion.  “Women of Honor’s Ray of Sunshine” has built a solid reputation as one of the best women’s wrestlers in the world over her 20 year career.  It was based on that reputation that Ring of Honor made her a cornerstone of the Women of Honor division when it was relaunched in 2015.

Sumie Sakai will join Brian Milonas and six other wrestlers in the Death Before Dishonor 8-pack.  The Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack will be available this December along with the other Filsinger Games holiday releases from Legends of Wrestling and Champions of the Galaxy.  Preorder begins on Black Friday November 23rd.

The Kingpin Joins the Ring of Honor Game Roster!

The first man to be announced for the Ring of Honor Death Before Dishonor game pack is perhaps the biggest man to be part of the Ring of Honor roster, “The Kingpin” Brian Milonas.  Standing 6′ 4″ and weighing in close to 400 lbs. Milonas is an intimidating sight, but what may be more impressive is the unexpected agility and explosiveness he demonstrates in the ring.

Milonas is an over 15 year veteran of the New England independent scene.  He got his big opportunity to enter Ring of Honor as part of the 2017 Top Prospect tournament, where he made it to the semifinals.  Later in the year he had a match with the Beer City Bruiser and impressed him enough to form a tag team partnership.  Any tag team set to go up against these two are certainly in for a rough night!

The Bruiserweight Completes the Best of the UK Set!

Completing the incredible Best of the UK set is perhaps the biggest name on the United Kingdom wrestling scene today, “The Bruiserweight” Pete Dunne.  Dunne is known for his brutal wrestling style and sour attitude that earned him the Bruiserweight nickname. An extremely accomplished wrestler, he has won titles throughout the UK as both a singles and tag team wrestler.  But in the past year he has finally achieved world-wide acclaim under the banner of the largest wrestling promotion in the world, and now everyone can appreciate the talent that Pete Dunne possesses.  Game fans will be eager to match up Dunne with Trent Seven and Tyler Bate both as partners and opponents and recreate some of the epic encounters they have had in recent times.
