Any sports fan living in the greater Chicago area during the 90s, was spoiled with the unmatched Bulls dynasty that ruled over the National Basketball Assoc. and featured arguably the best pro basketball player of all time, Michael Jordan. Jordan became more then just a great athlete in the 90s, he became sport’s first icon in the modern era. Jordan grew to symbolize more then just basketball, he symbolized greatness in general. So when you hear Jordan’s voice used perfectly in this promo for upcoming Death Before Dishonor VII pay per view, you might get a sense of the greatness that Ring of Honor brings to pro wrestling.
The voiceover is originally from a NIke Commercial that aired on national TV years ago. Jordan in a dramatic monologue demands for the viewer, to “look (him) in the eye”. The basketball great over a cinematic piano score, continues his convincing statement of character saying ” I know what is within me, even if you can’t see it yet.” It’s a grandiose way to describe the passionate ‘fighting spirit’ of Ring of Honor.
The promo is an produced for Ring of Honor by ThatWrestlingShow. This is the same team produced a movie-worthy vignette about current WWE wrestler Bryan Danielson when he left ROH last year. Their videos are worth checking out.

DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR VII
The internet pay per view which airs live from the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto, Ontario on June 19th, will feature a long awaited ROH World Title Match between the champion, Tylar Black and Davey Richards. You can viewe live the pay preview at GoFightlive.tv. It’s affordable at a price of 15$.
Black who is originally from Iowa, made his name locally with AAW in Berwyn, IL and throughout the Midwest including some time spent with IWA-Mid South. When independent wrestlers are talked about, Black is usually at the top of the list as the reigning ROH World Champ.
Richards who has been a staple for ROH for years, has really dialed in his performance in the last year/. With his tag partner Eddie Edwards, Richards won the ROH Tag Team Championships. Known as the American Wolves, the team put on five star matches with teams like the Young Bucks and The Briscoe Brothers. On the weekly HDNet show, Richards has amazed audience with his Japanese ‘strong’ style and his unrelenting intensity. ROH recently resigned Richards insuring his services for the future, and keeping him away from a predictable pick up by WWE or TNA. They were smart to sign Richards, considering he could easily be a wrestling machine for any promotion.
Ring of Honor is truly pitting their two best wrestlers against each other in this huge match.
Other matches announced for the show include:
ROH World Tag Team Title Match
The Kings of Wrestling with Shane Hagadorn vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe
