- Above is a look inside the NJPW US Dojo and an interview with Head Trainer Katsuyori Shibata who says he asked to lead the training when the opportunity came along. In regards to what he's looking for, Shibata says it's a "Samurai."
"I think it's the best word to describe who I'm looking for. Samurai," Shibata said. "There's no such thing as a weak-hearted samurai. Nothing else matters. Not race or looks. What matters is spirit."

- Below, Cody (with Brandi Rhodes) spoke about his upcoming triple threat title match against ROH World Champion Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll. He also noted how in the matter of one year he's become 'the brand' for Ring of Honor.
"My mere presence means this is not an amateur show anymore," Cody said. "I'm the guy responsible for for filling the bellies of everybody waving the banner of Ring of Honor. I am Daddy and Daddy eats first."
Cody retweeted this video telling all wrestlers to "Get on my level. You're all so far behind."
