INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 04/02/14 - 04/04/14

NEWSWIRE 4 2 14

 

- SUPERCARD OF HONOR is THIS weekend and the time has come to settle the ROH World title situation once and for all as current ROH World Champion Adam Cole will battle "Real" World Champion Jay Briscoe in a LADDER WAR!! The winner of this match will be declared the true ROH World Champion, restoring the lineage of the title and ending the dispute over who is the "real" World Champion truly is. Jay Briscoe has not been pinned once since his return to ROH last November. On the other hand, Adam Cole has sustained several pinfall losses from Jay in non-title matches. Briscoe definitely has the experience edge in Ladder Wars but Cole has one of wrestling's most prolific ladder match competitors in his corner - his mentor, Matt Hardy. This match has been in the making for a very long time and the tension between these men is at an all time high. Both men will not be the same after Friday night. 


-The ROH TV Title match THIS Friday is very notable as the rivalry between Tommaso Ciampa and Jay Lethal has been ongoing for quite sometime. Remember that on August 11, 2012, Lethal took on Ciampa in a 2/3 Falls match and it was during this very match that Ciampa suffered the knee injury that took him out for a year and nearly ended his career. Since returning to action last May, Ciampa has been extremely dominant and became the ROH TV Champion at FINAL BATTLE 2013. Tommaso's TV Title reign has already proven to be historic as the title was defended recently across Europe solidifying it as a WORLD title. Lethal has been a frustrated man recently as he has had Ciampa pinned for a 3 count on 2 occasions in both Pittsburgh and Philadelphia but the referee missed the fall each time. So this Friday at SUPERCARD OF HONOR VIII, we will witness the next battle in the war between Jay Lethal and Tommaso Ciampa and not only will the ROH World Television Championship be on the line, but the match will be contested under 2/3 Falls rules!.

 

- Kevin Steen is already set to challenge the winner of Ladder War V at GLOBAL WARS in Toronto for the ROH World Title. But before he gets to Toronto, Steen has an historic opportunity set before him in New Orleans THIS Friday when he faces "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin for an IWGP Title shot in NYC at WAR OF THE WORLDS! By the end of May, Kevin Steen could possibly be the ROH World Champion AND IWGP Heavyweight Champion! 

 

- JUST SIGNED for SUPERCARD OF HONOR THIS Friday.... BJ Whitmer, Jimmy Jacobs, and Adam Page vs. Andrew Everett & Adrenaline RUSH in a 6-Man Tag Team Scramble! The Decade says that there is a lost tradition of locker room ethics that no longer exists and Adam Page has stepped up to earn respect the right way. According to The Decade, Adam Page will be "paying his dues" until the time is right for him to step up. The Decade DOES NOT consider Page a member of the trio, just their "young boy". We all know that Adrenaline RUSH are big targets for The Decade and it will be interesting to see Page interact with The Decade as a their tag team partner this weekend.

 

- GLOBAL WARS on Saturday, May 10th at the Ted Reeve Arena in Toronto, Canada and WAR OF THE WORLDS on Saturday, May 17th at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City will both be SOLD OUT but you will be able to watch it from home LIVE on iPPV! Click HERE for details.


- Truth Martini has been obsessed with ruining Matt Taven's career since Taven fired Martini at the start of 2014. Since then, Truth has been quite successful at causing Taven to lose his recent matches and Taven is ready to put an end to Truth forever. Truth is confident that his mystery at SUPERCARD OF HONOR VIII will eliminate Taven from competition and set the wrestling world a blaze.

 

- THIS Saturday the main event will be a huge 6-Man War with Adam Cole, Matt Hardy & Michael Bennett w/ Maria facing Kevin Steen, Jay & Mark Briscoe but how will Jay and Cole be only one day after Ladder War 5?

 

- The first ever encounter between AJ Styles and Michael Elgin aired on the latest episode of ROH TV and it definitely lived up to the hype but THERE WAS NO WINNER. Both men battled to a 30 minute time limit draw and the only way for Nigel McGuinness to make things right was to sign AJ STYLES VS. MICHAEL ELGIN 2! This epic rematch will be hosted at SECOND TO NONE in Baltimore on April 19th and if the first encounter between Elgin and Styles is any indication, the second will be worth the price of admission all on its own! Order tickets for our Baltimore return HERE ().

 

- Since March of 2013, reDRagon has dominated the Ring of Honor tag wrestling scene but at RAISING THE BAR NIGHT 2, current IWGP Tag Champions The Young Bucks defeated reDRagon and began their first reign with the ROH titles! Now reDRagon have the chance to earn their belts back in a number one contenders Triple Threat Tag Team match against Hanson & Rowe and The Forever Hooligans in New Orleans THIS Friday! The winners of this match on April 4th will go on to New York City for an ROH World Tag Team Championship match at WAR OF THE WORLDS. The stakes are high and the real question is how the newly formed team of Hanson & Rowe will fare in an ROH ring with 4 world class athletes.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 11/06/13 - 11/06/13

- A special thank you to everyone who attended The Golden Dream last Saturday night in Cincinnati. It was certainly a noteworthy event filled with the electrifying pro wrestling that you can only see in Ring of Honor. Check out all of the results right HERE and the VOD/DVD will be available soon.

 

- In the most significant announcement made last Saturday, the new Final Battle 2013 main event will see Adam Cole defend his ROH World Championship in a triple threat match against both Jay Briscoe and "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin! All three men have legitimate claims to being the World Champion and they will finally clash in New York City! Last Saturday ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness announced that the winner of the main event between Kevin Steen and Jay Briscoe would be inserted into the ROH World Championship match at Final Battle. After multiple distractions from Adam Cole, and from Maria Kanellis, Jay Briscoe defeated Kevin Steen with a Jay Driller.

 

- Also at Final Battle 2013, Matt Taven will defend his ROH World Television Championship against "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa! At The Golden Dream this past Saturday, Ciampa became the #1 contender by defeating Jay Lethal and Mark Briscoe in a triple threat match. Also announced for Final Battle 2013, The Young Bucks return to take on Adrenaline RUSH!

 

- We are back on the road on November 15th and 16th for Pursuit Night 1 & 2 in Dearborn, MI & Columbus, OH. Both of these events are shaping up to be stellar and you can see the announced matches thus far for Night 1 HERE and Night 2 right HERE. Jay Briscoe has stated that he will be in both towns looking to defend his "Real World Championship".

 

- Jimmy Jacobs successfully defeated Roderick Strong to win his best of 5 Trial Series last Saturday, and because he won 3 out of the 5 matches, Jacobs has earned an ROH World Championship opportunity against Adam Cole, just miles from his hometown, in Dearborn, Michigan! This will be Jacobs 4th attempt at winning the ROH World Championship during his career. His first opportunity came on 6/23/06 in Detroit when he lost to Bryan Danielson. On 2/27/09 Jacobs lost in a 4 way match for the championship to Nigel McGuinness. Later that year on 9/14/06 Jacobs lost in Tokyo, Japan again to Nigel McGuinness. After 4 years Jacobs is hungry for another shot at the gold. Jimmy has come a long way in the company since his last shot in 2009, and might be the best hes ever been in his career.

 

- Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander get their chance at the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon on November 16th in Columbus, OH and many are expecting this to either make or break C & C. Caprice & Cedric definitely have what it takes to reign supreme in the tag team division and both men have come a long way since debuting as a team. reDRagon has proven to be the real deal and they are already 2-time ROH Tag Team Champions with no signs of slowing down. The best tag team division in the world headlines Columbus and it promises to be big!

 

- Kevin Steen will not be in Dearborn or Columbus due to his actions last Saturday in Cincinnati. Maria Kanellis was a big factor in Steen's downfall to Jay Briscoe. After the match Steen brought Maria back out to the ring in an attempt to Package Piledrive her! Fortunately, referees and security saved Maria. However, nobody was there to save them, as Steen went on a rampage and laid out all of the referees and security. Referee Paul Turner was rushed to the hospital after being unconscious for an extended period of time. Thankfully Paul will be okay, but he suffered multiple injuries.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 10/23/13 - 10/23/13

Last Weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV


10/19/13


1. Mark Briscoe pinned Tadarius Thomas


- World Champion Adam Cole came to the ring to address the fans. Cole said that being champion, at its core, is the realization of becoming a real man and that a real man does and says what he wants to get what he wants. Adam said that after years of hard work he has gotten what he wants, he has achieved his golden dream. Adam continued by saying that when he first started wrestling, he was told that in order to be successful, you have to shake everybodys hand, smile, and make it look like you were happy to be there. Now he sees that that was just to keep him down from becoming the best in the world. He said there will be no more shaking hands or fake smiles or just being happy to be here. If that continued, he would have become your Ring of Honor World Champion. 

Cole said that in order to get what you havent got, you have to do things you wouldnt do. He also addressed the two men he left laying at Death Before Dishonor XI who claim to be the Real World Champion but he said they are just a couple of chumps. 

He said people asked him why he would you kick Jay Briscoe in the back? Adam said that when Jay challenged Kevin Steen for the World Title and he had his moment, his family and friends were there to help him celebrate. Yet Adam said that Jay tried to ruin his moment and rain on his parade and that washed up Jay Briscoe should feel lucky that all Adam did was kick him in the back of the head. 

He then addressed Michael Elgin by saying that since they both started in Ring of Honor, they had been labeled as the breakout stars and the future. As Cole began to run down Elgin he made his way to the ring which prompted Nigel to get in the middle. Cole tried to leave while Elgin entered the ring but Jay Briscoe blocked his escape route. 


Elgin tried to hit Adam with a clothesline but missed and Cole bailed but left the title belt in the ring. Elgin held it up but Jay took the title belt and they got in each others face. 


2. Michael Bennett & Maria Kanellis beat Cheeseburger & Brutal Bob; After the match Bennett attempted to piledrive Cheeseburger but Kevin Steen intervened. Kevin said he actually didn't have a problem with what happened to BJ Whitmer because he knew the risks and that he doesn't have a problem with doing it to Cheeseburger either.  His problem is Bennett bragging about having the best piledriver. He then reminded Bennett that he was crying after the incident with BJ to which Maria responded by slapping Steen across the face.


- Steve Corino came to the ring to try and take his spot as a commentator claiming he has a valid contract for the job. He was escorted away...


3. World Tag Title Match: reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) defeated IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Champions The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) and C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) when they pinned Koslov; After the match, Outlaw Inc attempted to attack Bobby Fish but O'Reilly pulled him out of harm's way

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 10/16/13 - 10/16/13

Last Weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV


10/12/13


1. Adam Page pinned ACH


- Match Maker Nigel McGuinness came to the ring to discuss the World Title Tournament. He said that as a former Ring of Honor Champion himself, whether it was Tommaso Ciampa refusing to tap out or Michael Elgin gutting it out in the finals, it was a great night. He stated that Adam Cole showed how good he is and when the bell rang at the end of the match, Nigel said he was proud to be part of Ring of Honor. Nigel says that the match is already booked. He continued by saying that Jay Briscoe proved he was a man of honor and when he gave the belt to Adam Cole but moments later, when Cole superkicked Jay in the back of the head and nailed Elgin with the title belt, he was embarrassed. Nigel said he doesn't know, or care, why Cole did it; he only cares about the prestige of the title. 

Nigel proceeded to announce that in the main event at Glory By Honor XII, there will be an 8-Man  Elimination tag match where the four champions will take on the top four contenders. He also announced the first man on the All Star team as Michael Elgin. 


This brought out Jay Briscoe who asked Nigel how could have a Champions versus All Stars match when the real champion isnt even in the match.  Nigel reminded Jay that he is still injured and not medically cleared to which Jay said he would be cleared 5 days before the event.  


Nigel said the match was already booked to which Jay said he did the thing that Elgin hasnt been able to do: beat Adam Cole when the title was on the line. That brought out Michael Elgin who told Jay that he listened to what Jay said about what he did and what Michael didnt do. He said that Jay did not watch closely when the referee got hit and the crowd was counting to three after hitting an Elgin Bomb. Elgin continued with stating that Jay did not defend the title against him when he was the number one contender. 


Elgin said he is not making excuses and he is not living in the past rather he is looking to the future and Champions versus All Stars. He said he doesn't care who Nigel puts with him, that unlike Jay he did not have his brother watching him his entire career, he fought for himself. Michael says that he will fight by himself and he will beat every champion. 

Elgin said that for six months, he fought for Nigels definition of honor but now he will fight for his own definition of honor. He said that if Jay claims to be the real Ring of Honor Champion, and if Cole can look at himself in the mirror and say that he is the champion, then that means that Michael is the uncrowned champion. 

Michael tells Jay to beat him and then he can call himself the champion which leads to officials having to separate the two men...


2. Roderick Strong beat Mike Mondo


3. Outlaw Inc. (Homicide & Eddie Kingston) defeated Marshall Law (RD Evans & QT Marshall); After the match Homicide broke Evans' fingers and then they staged a sit-in until the reDRagon came to the ring but security ultimately removed Kingston & Homicide.


4. World TV Title Match: Matt Taven defeated Jay Lethal to retain

Also keep in mind that Bobby Fish has yet to be pinned in ROH in over a year of competition.

 

- Recently "The First Lady of ROH" Mara Kanellis made an appearance at Lisa Varon's Squared Circle Restaurant to meet with any fans who stopped by the establishment.  A simple misunderstanding about a drink order was escalated by Maria's attitude and while Lisa did her best to diffuse the situation, the "First Lady" walked out on her obligations. 

The Squared Circle is a wrestling-themed restaurant and bar owned by one of the most acclaimed female wrestlers in history, Lisa Marie Varon. The Squared Circle features house-ground burgers, brick oven pizza, full bar, and much more. For more information on The Squared Circle website at http://thesquaredcircle.biz/ or follow them on Twitter @theSQDcircle!

 

- Speaking of Maria and "Glory by Honor XII", that night Michael Bennett is scheduled to wrestle Kevin Steen and of course Maria will be in his corner. The Battle Of The Piledrivers will be one to see!

 

- Paul London is extremely excited to compete in Chicago for ROH. He has stated that he will go all out in his match with Roderick Strong and defeat Mr. ROH.

 

- Jay Briscoe will be sending us comments via video regarding "Glory by Honor XII" this week. There is absolutely no telling what Jay will have to say. Jay has informed us that he would be cleared by doctors to wrestle on October 21st. ROH officials cannot confirm this and have not received any documents. Until ROH officials are presented with doctors clearance, Jay Briscoe is not allowed to attend ROH events.

 

- Don't forget that "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa returns to action at "Glory by Honor XII" in Chicago. Ciampa has been out of action since his brutal match with Adam Cole at "Death Before Dishonor XI". Although the loss in the Semi-Finals to Adam Cole left him in the hospital, many are saying that Ciampa will return with even more intensity and drive.


- On November 16th, when Ring of Honor hits Columbus and The Ohio Expo Center C & C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) get their chance at the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly)! C & C's recent Title shots have been plagued with distractions and unlucky scenarios but the team has gone on record to say that all they need is "one pure shot". Also don't forget about the cryptic words spoken by Caprice saying that "It's now or never."

 

- Davey Richards recently sent a blog called "I Love Wrestling" and it is available to read HERE.

- Jay Lethal will be joining our camp staff on Saturday December 7th and Sunday the 8th or our next Try-Out/Seminar Camp at the ROH Dojo in Bristol, PA! Slots are filling up fast so do not wait until the last minute to sign up. This is a truly unique experience for every wrestler looking to further their careers.

4.In a must-see battle, Jay Lethal beat Davey Richards via referee stoppage when Richards passed out in the Koji Clutch; Prior to the match Lethal got on the microphone and discussed his meeting with Joe Koff. Lethal said Koff wanted to sweep the incident with his mother under the rug. He also said Steen can kiss his ass, but he put Cornette out, sees that nobody seems too upset about that, and be careful what you wish for. He said ROH told him he was too nice and needed a killer instinct, so he tells ROH that they can kiss his ass too. Lethal than said he won't say the same to his opponent tonight, because he has a lot of respect for Davey Richards. After the match, Eddie Edwards suprisingly came out to check on his former American Wolves tag team partner...


- Prior to the start of the his scheduled match with Tadarius Thomas, Roderick Strong came to the ring in street clothes and protested being in a match against Thomas because he hasn't beaten anybody. Strong said he's not just on strike from the HoT, but he is quitting the House of Truth and is going to sit front row and watch Elgin lose. Truth then got Rhino, who looked none too happy about it, to take on Thomas


5.Tadarius Thomas pinned Rhino; Rhino seemed not at all happy about this match or about Truth get involved in it as a distraction from Martini set Rhino up to get knocked loopy from a Tadarius kick long enough for him to score the upset. After the loss, Rhino grabbed Martini (who tried to throw money at Rhino to stop him) and press slammed him over the top rope to the floor against the guardrails.


6.ROH World TV Title Match: Adam Cole defeated Eddie Edwards to retain; This amazing back-and-forth battle saw Eddie nearly capture the title for the second time on several occassions but Cole continue to fight back until he nailed Florida Key for the win.

7.ROH World Tag Title Match: S.C.U.M (Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs) beat Jay & Mark Briscoe to retain in a wild brawl that


8.ROH World Title Match: Kevin Steen defeated Unbreakable Michael Elgin to retain in a ridiculously hard-hitting bout that must been seen. Both men gave it their absolute all and it took a top rope Package Piledriver to finally put Elgin away! Prior to the match, Steen told the fans that ROH gave into his demands including a new title belt and the reinstatement of the package piledriver. During the course of the match Elgin took Roderick, who was seated at ringside, and whipped him through the guardrails.

 

-After the match, Strong returned and absolutely drilled Elgin with a Sick Kick before running away. Then, referee Paul Turner handed Nigel McGuinness a package that was to be delivered to Steen in the event of him retaining the World Title. Nigel handed the box over to the champion who opened it and to his shock & disbelief found an El Generico mask inside...

2. World Title Tournament Semi-Final Match: Kevin Steen pinned Roderick Strong to advance

3. World Title Tournament Semi-Final Match: Michael Elgin beat Karl Anderson to advance


This Weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV


- This week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV the ROH World Championship Tournament continues with the Semi-Finals from Philadelphia! "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin faces Kevin Steen and Adam Cole battles Tommaso Ciampa in a quest for the gold!


News


- Ring of Honor returned home to Philadelphia & The National Guard Armory last Friday night, September 20th, for Death Before Dishonor XI and a new World Champion was crowned as the tournament came to an unforgettable end. Adam Cole defeated Michael Elgin honorably, in the middle of the ring, to become the 19th World Champion! Following the match, Jay Briscoe, like a man, presented the new champion with the title belt and even shook Cole's hand...but when Jay turned around, Cole superkicked him in the back of the head and then nailed Elgin with the title belt across the face in a dishonorable act that will never be forgotten!

 

- During the tournament finals last Friday night at Death Before Dishonor XI, Michael Elgin hit Cole with the Elgin Bomb but Todd Sinclair was clipped by Cole's feet on his way up which briefly rendered him unable to make a three count. Many people feel that this would have undoubtedly been the end if the referee was accidentally hit. After watching the replay, ROH officials do not hold Todd Sinclair accountable given the positioning in which both men abruptly turned during the course of the move. Cole's shoulders were obviously down for 3 seconds and the question remains whether Cole would have kicked out if the ref was in place?

 

- Former World Champion Jay Briscoe will be in the house THIS Saturday night Hopkins, MN! Jay will not be cleared to wrestle or eligible to return to ROH action until November but Jay will be there and he has something to say.

 

- Tommaso Ciampa spent the night before his wedding in the hospital as a result of Adam Cole repeatedly kicking Ciampa in the head while having him locked in the Figure Four. Ciampa's knee was aggravated plus he suffered a concussion during his war with Cole. Ciampa took it to the next level in Philly and will return to ROH action on October 26th at "Glory by Honor XII" in Chicago Ridge, IL.

 

- Before the show started last Friday night at Death Before Dishonor XI, Steve Corino entered the building demanding his reinstatement and was thrown out by security. Due to the entertainment value of Corino's delusional antics we will include this as an extra on the DVD release.

 

- Last Friday BJ Whitmer announced that he was choosing to end his in-ring wrestling career due to injury. BJ Whitmer is the toughest man in ROH history as well as a locker room leader. We will miss BJ and his contribution to ROH will never be forgotten. Fans that are wishing to send positive thoughts to BJ can send them to @BJ_Whitmer on Twitter.

 

- After Whitmer sadly announced his retirement from in-ring competition and thanked the fans last Friday, he did a surprising thing by calling Jimmy Jacobs out to the ring. BJ made it clear that without Jimmy Jacobs there would be no BJ Whitmer and despite their heated past, Jimmy has been by Whitmer's side since he was injured in Toronto. Whitmer explained that if Jimmy didn't stop Steve Corino during Steel Cage Warfare, then Corino would have set the ring on fire. Whitmer asked Match Maker Nigel McGuinness to give Jacobs an opportunity and not let the career of 2 men come to an end. Taken aback, Nigel acquiesced and stated that Jimmy would get his opportunity to prove himself starting the following night during the ROH TV Tapings. That night he faced off with Silas Young in a bout that will air on the October 26th edition of ROH TV and, as it turns out, it will mark the first of five Trial Series matches for Jacobs. Nigel said that should Jacobs be victorious in three of those five bouts, he will be awarded a World Title match on November 15th when ROH returns to Jimmy's home state of Michigan! When asked why he would offer Jacobs this fantastic opportunity at gold Nigel responded with "Any man who can get though 3 of the 5 men that he has to face in an honorable fashion deserves a shot. It is motivation for Jacobs to do the right thing and channel his energy toward honor."

 

- THIS Saturday night Ring of Honor heads to The Eisenhower Center in Hopkins, MN for a big live event featuring a World Title Match, a TV Title Match, the debut of a highly demanded tag team, and a lot more! To view the entire card click HERE and you can get your tickets right now HERE.

 

- This Saturday the ROH TV Title will be defended in a Triple Threat match as champion Matt Taven defends against Davey Richards and Roderick Strong. Truth Martini recently went to Match Maker Nigel McGuinness petitioning that all of Taven's matches be TV title matches in order to light a fire under him. Nigel has agreed to make this Saturday's bout for the TV Title and if the title changes hands we will air it on ROH TV! Davey Richards & Roderick Strong have both defeated Taven at recent ROH events and we could easily see history made in this match. Also note that Truth Martini will NOT be in Minnesota!

 

- In the main event on Saturday night October 5th in Baltimore it will be a dream tag match pitting reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) against Michael Elgin & Jay Lethal and, at the request of the champions, the World Tag Team Titles WILL be on the line! Will the ROH Faithful in Baltimore see a repeat of Providence? Be there in Baltimore to find out by purchasing tickets HERE.

 

- JUST SIGNED for October 5th in Baltimore it will be ACH vs. Kevin Steen!

 

- Last Friday in Philadelphia, Cedric Alexander pinned ROH Tag Team Champion Kyle O'Reilly after hitting Overtime. C & C Wrestle Factory can get the job done but luck has not been on their side in Championship matches. It cannot be denied that every time they challenge for the belts there seems to be an unlucky distraction keeping them from attaining their ultimate dream.

 

- On Saturday night February 8th, 2014 ROH returns to The Alamo State for another big live event! That night we head back to the San Antonio Shrine Auditorium, located at 901 North Loop 1604 West, San Antonio TX, 78232 with a 7:30pm bell time. Tickets for this 2/8/14 event are on-sale NOW for Ringside Members and on Friday September 27th at 10am EST for the General Public. If you're in the San Antonio area, make sure you catch Ring of Honor Wrestling every Sunday at 5pm on KABB and every Saturday on KMYS at 9pm!


- The main event of "Glory by Honor XII" on October 26th in Chicago Ridge, IL will be a Champions vs. All-Stars 8-Man Elimination Tag Team Match! The match will have a 2 hour time limit and if anybody eliminates the World Champion then they will receive a future World Title shot. More details will be available soon but this has the makings of being an unbelievable contest. Order your tickets for our return to the Windy City right HERE.

News

- This past Friday & Saturday night Ring of Honor brought the best pro wrestling on the planet to Chattanooga, TN and Birmingham, AL! We want to thank everyone who supported us over the weekend and we appreciate all of the great feedback. These events will be available very soon on VOD.

 

- Ring of Honor is back on the road to Philadelphia on Friday September 20th and Saturday the 21st for Death Before Dishonor XI! This will be one of the most important weekends in the history of ROH and we invite everyone to attend and witness history unfold. It will be the moment of a lifetime for either Michael Elgin, Kevin Steen, Adam Cole, or Tommaso Ciampa as one of them will enter Saturday as the new ROH World Champion. Click HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/content/roh-world-title-tournament-information) for an updated look at the ROH World Championship Tournament brackets and join us in Philadelphia for the moment of a lifetime (http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/philadelphia-pa-september-20th)!

 

- Two title matches have officially been confirmed for Saturday September 20th as World TV Champion Matt Taven defends against Jay Lethal and the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) defend against C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) and The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) in a Triple Threat Tag Team Match! Tickets for our first ever Ring of Honor Wrestling TV Taping in Philly are available HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/philadelphia-pa-september-21st).

 

- The Barrister R.D. Evans returns from his injury at Death Before Dishonor and is looking for revenge. With Evans recently away from his offices, Veda Scott has helped ease the load by handling the affairs of "God's Gift" QT Marshall as well as handling a majority of Evans legal paperwork.

 

- Ricky Marvin is excited to make his ROH US debut at "Death Before Dishonor" and officials are just as excited to see how his style translates in an ROH ring. Both of his matches over the weekend against Roderick Strong and Davey Richard could possibly steal the show.

 

- As we know Jay Briscoe will present the ROH World Title belt to the winner of the tournament. Jay Briscoe is still a few months away from being cleared to wrestle but his brother Mark will be in action on September 21st in Philly!

 

- What does Outlaw Inc. have planned for Philly?


- ROH World TV Champion Matt Taven has not been very successful during non-title matches and Truth Martini recently let him know after his loss against Jay Lethal last Saturday in Birmingham. It is known that Truth Martini has requested that Taven's championship be up for grabs at all times in order to motivate the current champion. Nigel has yet to respond to Martini's request.


- Michael Bennett scored one of the biggest wins of his career last Saturday in Birmingham against former ROH World Champion Davey Richards. ROH officials have taken notice and, especially with Maria in the ear of the office, it is hard not to take notice of a man who can defeat Richards. Bennett wants more competition and has went on record claiming to have the best Piledriver in all of pro wrestling.

 

- Speaking of Davey Richards, Davey will be touring England during the month of October while partner Eddie Edwards heads to Pro Wrestling NOAH in Japan.

 

- The Ringmasters Challenge between Roderick Strong and Adam Cole last Saturday was definitely a test of endurance, skill and heart. Two of the best collided and while Cole did nothing "wrong", his method of attaining victory was once again questionable.

 

- Kyle O'Reilly and Cedric Alexander had a fantastic one-on-one showdown last Friday in Chattanooga and it is a match that you definitely want to see.

 

- Despite their losing effort, Alabama Attitude (Mike Posey & Corey Hollis) impressed over the weekend as a team and look better every time they compete.

 

- The Honor Rumble returns on September 28th in Hopkins, MN and the winner of the Honor Rumble will get an Instant Reward in the form of an ROH World Championship bout the same night! The four men still involved in the World Title Tournament (Tommaso Ciampa, Kevin Steen, Adam Cole, and Michael Elgin) will NOT be participants in the Honor Rumble but we can confirm that previous Honor Rumble winner Jay Lethal will compete. What a fun night it will be and you can get your tickets right HERE.

 

- We want to take the time to give a special thanks to all of the great fans who watch our television show each week making it a ratings success! The loyal fans watching on WLOS in the Ashville, NC and Spartanburg, SC area and WRLH in Richmond have made us a huge hit and we appreciate it. Our show continues to draw rave reviews and we are proud of the continuous growth and quality of our presentation. If you want true pro wrestling then this is your show!


- The next ROH Try-out/Seminar Camp will take place on Saturday December 7th & Sunday December 8th at the ROH Dojo in Bristol, PA. If you are a pro wrestler looking for valuable advice then this is the place to be. We have a fantastic system with fantastic instructors and we guarantee a wonderful experience!

Generation Next of Aries, Shelley, Evans and Strong joined The Embassy in putting the boots to Foley. Maff & Whitmer then fought off everyone and made the save for one of wrestling's biggest icons. Foley then cut a must see, classic promo saying that he was sent some ROH DVDs and after witnessing some of the hardcore action he saw an attitude and spirit in ROH that he wanted to be a part of. Foley then said that to him ROH means Ring Of Hardcore. This raised some eyebrows in the locker room as most of the crew want ROH to be known for pure wrestling and not what they consider to be "garbage" wrestling.

Strong and Cole have had quite the controversial couple of matches recently when Cole took the countout win at "Best in the World" to defeat Strong and then there most recent match on ROH TV ended by DQ when Cole hit Strong with a chain.

This one could easily be a classic so get your tickets for ROH's Birmingham debut right HERE.


- "Reclamation Night 1 and 2" are currently available on VOD and each of those nights saw Nigel McGuinness not let rulebreaking slide so easy for certain competitors. With SCUM no longer around to distract him, Nigel said that he can now focus on rebuilding ROH to what it is truly about. Purity and honor. During Tommaso Ciampa vs. Silas Young in Dearborn, Young originally secured the victory with the use of a hammer but Nigel McGuinness didn't stand for such blatant disregard of the rules and restarted the bout. Also during Matt Taven vs. Kevin Steen, Truth Martini tried to interfere at the end leading to enough distraction that Steen was pinned by Taven. As a result Nigel punished Truth by booking him in a match with Steen immediately. Nigel wants everyone on the roster to know that their will be consequences to illegal activity and the examples are transparent.

News


- Thank you to all of the great fans who attended our events over the weekend in Chicago, Milwaukee, and Dearborn! Once again we electrified crowds with the best pure wrestling on the planet plus "A Night of Hoopla" provided one of the most unique nights in the history of wrestling! What an unbelievable year 2013 has been so far and we appreciate everyone who has supported us!


- Ring of Honor is back on the road on July 27th when we return to Providence, RI to kick-off of the ROH World Championship Tournament! Tickets for our RI return are available right HERE (http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-providence-rhode-island-07-27-2013/event/01004A33B7396514?artistid=883536&majorcatid=10004&minorcatid=27&tm_link=search_msg-0_01004A33B7396514) in the ROH Store!


- All 16 participants and First-Round Matches have been announced for the ROH World Championship Tournament and you can click HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/content/roh-world-title-tournament-information) to get all of the tourny info.


- Nigel McGuinness surprised a lot of people with the announcement that the last entry in the field of 16 is none other than Mark Briscoe! While Jay Briscoe is still slated to be out of action for the next 3-6 months due to the severe shoulder injury that forced McGuinness to strip him of the World Title, Mark will be cleared by the doctors one day before Providence on July 26th! It will be very interesting to see what Jay has to say about this!


- You the fans let your voice be heard and because of that ACH is in the ROH World Championship Tournament based on your Facebook votes! We enjoy the interactivity with all of the great fans and your vote definitely counted. For all of those who participated... we thank you.


- Everyone loves the pre-show Q&A`s that we have recently held. Over the weekend Nigel McGuinness answered the fans questions plus announced The Young Bucks would be making their ROH return at "All Star Extravaganza V" in Toronto and in Providence The Forever Hooligans will step into The Proving Ground with the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon! It should be noted that Jimmy Jacobs also interrupted the Q&A on both nights. Expect the entire Q&A from both Milwaukee and Dearborn to be available soon to Ringside Members and also expect more pre-show Q&A`s at future ROH events.


- In the biggest pinfall victory of his career, World Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish defeated Davey Richards in Milwaukee last Saturday in an incredible main event. This match was worth the price of admission alone and has solidified Bobby Fish as one of the best wrestlers in the company today.


- The World Tag Team Titles are the forefront of ROH and Match Maker Nigel McGuinness is certainly keeping the division red hot! On July 27th in Providence The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) will step into The Proving Ground with the World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O`Reilly & Bobby Fish) in an attempt to earn a future Tag Title Match! The Young Bucks (Matt & Nick Jackson) will make their long-awaited & highly-demanded return on August 3rd in Toronto, as part of the All Star Extravaganza V plus The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) will challenge O`Reilly & Fish for the World Tag Team Titles in Toronto! If The Forever Hooligans prove victorious in their Proving Ground match on 7/27, then on August 17th in NYC they will challenge the winner of the reDRagon/Wolves bout!


- Remember that originally Match Maker Nigel McGuinness wanted to include BOTH Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards in the ROH World Championship Tournament given their respective championship resumes. However both men respectfully declined in order to spend their summer focused on capturing the ROH World Tag Team Titles in the possession of reDRagon. The Wolves focus and passion is second to none and they want to elevate the ROH tag team division to a level that it has never been before.


- Speaking of tag teams... Scott "Jagged" Parker and "Big Magic" Shane Matthews, The Team of 3.0, return to ROH in Providence on July 27th!


- Michael Bennett showed a new attitude in Milwaukee and Dearborn that produced 2 huge wins. "The First Lady of ROH" Maria Kanellis has stated that this new attitude will ensure that Bennett is the next ROH World Champion.


- The July 27th edition of ROH TV is the biggest episode yet as Team ROH takes on S.C.U.M in Steel Cage Warfare with the future of Ring of Honor hanging in the balance! This is a must-see for every fan of ROH! All you have to do is click HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/tv/current) and for just $2.99 it can be yours before it airs on TV!

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 05/12/13 - 05/22/13

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV 05/18/13

Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs came out and Corino informed everyone that he was the color commentator  from now until the show gets cancelled, that one of his men will get a future World Title match, and that that man will be the next and last Ring of Honor World Champion. Jay Lethal came out and confronted Steve which led to...

1. Jimmy Jacobs beat Jay Lethal

ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness laid out the championship future of Jay Briscoe by declaring multiple men deserving of title opportunities starting with Unbreakable Michael Elgin and also including Adam Cole, Davey Richards, and Eddie Edwards. The World Champion interrupted to tell Nigel that it really didn't matter who he lined up because there wasn't a man alive who could beat him, that he would whoop all their asses.

Surprisingly it was Mark who in turn interrupted his older brother, telling him he had heard enough from Jay, that all Jay talks about is how he can whoop everybodys ass. Mark reminded Jay of two things, that they were brought up to be humble and that Mark had his first match in Ring of Honor when he beat Jay's ass. The back-and-forth between the brothers escalated with Jay saying that he wanted the match made for Best in the World 2013 and since Baltimore is just down the road from Sandy Fork, they can bring the family to watch. McGuinness said he would have to think about it...

2. S.C.U.M (Rhett Titus & Cliff Compton) beat C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander)

The World Champion interrupted to tell Nigel that it really didn't matter who he lined up because there wasn't a man alive who could beat him, that he would whoop all their asses. Surprisingly it was Mark who in turn interrupted his older brother, telling him he had heard enough from Jay, that all Jay talks about is how he can whoop everybodys ass. Mark reminded Jay of two things, that they were brought up to be humble and that Mark had his first match in Ring of Honor when he beat Jay's ass. The back-and-forth between the brothers escalated with Jay saying that he wanted the match made for Best in the World 2013 and since Baltimore is just down the road from Sandy Fork, they can bring the family to watch. Well... It's official... Jay Briscoe versus Mark Briscoe at Best in the World 2013! Should Jay make it through the World Title bouts against Davey Richards in San Antonio & Eddie Edwards in Columbus with the title still in his possession, then this WILL be a World Title bout! The entire Briscoe family will certainly be in the house to witness this clash and one has to wonder just which side everyone will be on? Don't miss Best in the World 2013 on June 22nd as it airs LIVE on iPPV and, if you can be there in-person, grab your tickets in the ROH Store HERE!

ROH officials agreed to this if the fans were given the opportunity to ask Corino and Matt Hardy anything they want.

Speaking of Hardy, The Self Proclaimed Icon Matt Hardy will get a shot at the Ring of Honor World Title on Sunday June 23rd in Baltimore! This title opportunity comes as a result of S.C.U.Ms tag team victory at Border Wars 2013 over the impromptu pairing of Michael Elgin and Kevin Steen, a victory that also put Steve Corino back in the announcers booth. Well in Richmond last Saturday, the figurehead of S.C.U.M announced that ... on June 23rd at the TV Tapings in Baltimore Matt Hardy will receive his ROH World Championship Title shot! Make sure youre there for what may be the most important Ring of Honor Wrestling TV Tapings that we have ever had. Click HERE  to purchase tickets.

Corino was not done with his announcements last Saturday as he addressed ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness and issued a challenge that will have some major repercussions on the future of Ring of Honor. Corino challenged McGuinness to amass a team of four individuals to face four members of S.C.U.M with two game changing stipulations: if the ROH team wins, S.C.U.M will disband and Steve even stated he would apologize and do whatever Nigel wants. If S.C.U.M wins, Corino will take Nigels job and become the new Match Maker. As Steve put it, I take your job... I run this company.... I have all of the power to do what I want and what I want is no secret. Nigel McGuinness has yet to officially comment and cannot clear such a strong stipulation without going through the proper channels. Nigel is definitely contemplating the challenge and will give a public statement next week.

We all know that "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin earned a ROH World Title shot by defeating Jay Lethal at "Supercard of Honor" last month. Elgin however went to Nigel saying that he is ready for his shot at anytime but he wants to rid ROH of the SCUM distraction and redeem himself from his recent loss against "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson before he feels worthy to be champion. Elgin is looking to take out SCUM in San Antonio on June 1st and finish the job on June 8th in Columbus. There is a lot of speculation that Nigel will sign Elgin's title match for ROH's return to Toronto on August 3rd at the old Maple Leaf Gardens, which is now known as The Mattamy Athletic Centre! More details soon but until then get your tickets for this event right HERE !

Silas Young returns to ROH on June 23rd at the TV Tapings in Baltimore.

Paul London is feeling much better since his brutal encounter with Davey Richards last Saturday at "Border Wars 2013". ROH officials hope to line up a few more dates for Paul very soon. It was great to have Paul back in ROH after almost 10 years and his passion for wrestling showed through in Toronto.

It was a pleasure for us to have Pro Wrestling NOAH's Taiji Ishimori with us last weekend in Toronto. Ishimori impressed everyone who saw him and ROH definitely wants Ishimori back very soon. Don't miss his match with Roderick Strong when it airs on ROH TV on May 25th!

In San Antonio, Athena will compete in a Women of Honor match on June 1st!

Cheeseburger was very popular in the locker room last Saturday after "Border Wars 2013". The young man celebrated with half of a wine cooler.

A man who was not popular in the locker room last Saturday was Kevin Steen. Steen was defeated after begging Nigel to be Michael Elgin's tag partner when Jay Lethal injured his knee on a dive which left Elgin alone in a two-on-one situation. As a result of this victory, one member of S.C.U.M will now receive a future World Title Match AND Steve Corino will rejoin the commentary team. Steen is on a mission to prove himself by defeating each member of S.C.U.M leading to "Best in the World 2013" starting with Rhett Titus this weekend.

Speaking of Rhett, his loyalty to Steve Corino is obvious and also quite dangerous. The mind control that Corino is able to pull off on his S.C.U.M members is fascinating.

Nigel McGuinness has stated that he feels Adam Cole deserves a ROH World Title rematch due to Steve Corino's distraction but before he can get one there are a few men in front of the line for title shot opportunities. In particular, Michael Elgin earned a shot by defeating Jay Lethal at "Supercard of Honor VII" in NYC. Elgin however went to Nigel saying that he is ready for his shot at anytime but he wants to rid ROH of the SCUM distraction and redeem himself from his recent loss against "Machine Gun" Karl Anderson before he feels worthy to be champion.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 04/25/13 - 04/25/13

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV 04/20/13

The show kicked off with former World Champion Kevin Steen coming to the ring but before he can say anything, Steve Corino interrupted and told Kevin it is okay he lost the World Title because the mission to kill ROH remains the same.  Kevin said that mission was fine when Cornette was still around but without him, ROH is just fine and Kevin's only mission is to become World Champion again.  Corino said the World Title needs to be with SCUM but maybe it isn't Kevin who it should be on.  As the rest of SCUM surrounded the ring, Steen said he would follow Corino through hell, that even when it was just Steve, Jimmy, and Kevin he didn't always get Corino but went with along with him. Now though there was one part of the plan he couldn't get with: Matt Hardy. Corino got livid that Kevin would insult Hardy, said they needed to go their separate ways, but Steve couldn't let Kevin walk out.  Steen went after Hardy which led to SCUM laying out the former Champion and Hardy hitting him with a Twist of Fate to cap it off.

1. Roderick Strong beat Mike Bennett

2. Jorge Santi vs. Tadarius Thomas ended in a No Contest when the whole of SCUM assaulted both men; This led to a back and forth verbal battle between Corino & Nigel McGuinness that ultimately set-up a tag team match for "Border Wars 2013". Two members of SCUM versus Michael Elgin & Jay Lethal; if Team ROH wins then Corino is done with ROH but if SCUM wins then one member (Corino implied Hardy) would receive a World Title match AND Corino would rejoin the commentary team.

3. World TV Title Match: Matt Taven beat ACH to retain

This weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

This weeks episode of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV features a public contract signing as Jay Briscoe and Adam Cole make their "Border Wars 2013" main event title match official! In addition Steve Corino issues an open challenge for anyone to face S.C.U.M in six man tag action!

As announced last week, Naomichi Marufuji will be unable to compete at "Border Wars 2013" or the TV Taping the following day due to a severe knee injury. Replacing him & making his return to ROH after almost 10 years -- the "INTREPID TRAVELER" PAUL LONDON. For complete details, click HERE.

On the latest episode of "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV, after Steve Corino & S.C.U.M assaulted Jorge Santi and Tadarius Thomas before their match could really get underway, a verbal confrontation occurred between Nigel McGuinness and Corino resulting in a match being made for "Border Wars 2013"! It will be S.C.U.M versus Jay Lethal & Michael Elgin and if Team ROH wins, then Corino will leave ROH but if S.C.U.M wins, then a member will get a future ROH title shot and Corino will sit next to Kevin Kelly as color commentator. The stakes are high in Toronto and you can catch all the action live on iPPV or in-person at the Ted Reeve Arena!

Despite what Steve Corino has stated, Kevin Steen says that he WILL BE at "Border Wars 2013!"

Announced earlier today, it's ROH vs. SCUM when "Buzzsaw" BJ Whitmer takes on his former partner Rhett Titus in a rematch of their "WAR" encounter!  Unlike that one, this battle has a special stipulation requested by Whitmer himself....I QUIT MATCH!

Just signed to compete for the Ring of Honor Wrestling TV Tapings in Toronto on Sunday, May 5th is "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett with "The First Lady of ROH" Maria Kanellis! Bennett's ROH contract expired on January 1st and rumor has it that ROH offered him a very lucrative extension but he has been holding out. Bennett claims that he has been weighing offers from major motion picture companies, record labels, other wrestling companies, etc. We are unaware if Bennett has recently resigned with ROH but what we are aware of is that Bennett and "The First Lady of ROH" will definitely be in Toronto! Tickets are on-sale HERE in the ROH Store!!!

On May 11th, Ring of Honor heads back to the Rostraver Ice Garden in Belle Vernon, PA for a big live event DVD taping and several big match-ups were recently signed to take place! First up, in a rematch of the finals of the 2013 Top Prospect Tournament Tadarius Thomas will go one-on-one with current World TV Champion Matt Taven! If Taven makes it out of "Border Wars 2013" weekend as champion, then this rematch will also be held under Proving Ground rules! Next, it seems that after only a pair of matches as a team and their 1-1 win/loss record, RD Evans has petitioned for a World Tag Team Title shot for himself & QT Marshall. Match Maker Nigel McGuinness balked at this request, stating that RD & QT had proved absolutely nothing as a team but he would give them the opportunity to do so in Pittsburgh. So, on May 11th, "God's Gift" and The Barrister will have to face one of the toughest teams in ROH history: The American Wolves! And Jay Lethal and Jimmy Jacobs will lock horns in a battle of ROH vs. S.C.U.M! Tickets are on-sale right HERE for our return to the Pittsburgh area!

- This past weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV, ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness set up an atypical 5 Way Scramble, pitting the five individuals who stood up for ROH in the ten man tag at "Supercard of Honor VII" against one another with a shot at the World TV Title up for grabs. The bout got off to an auspicious start as, before the match could even begin, Roderick Strong came out to question McGuinness` choice to include Mike Mondo in the bout instead of "Mr. Ring of Honor" as Strong likes to refer to himself. Eventually a fight broke out between Strong and Mondo before the other competitors came to the ring but once it was settled down and Roddy was taken away from ringside, the action got underway. Mondo, BJ Whitmer, Caprice Coleman, Cedric Alexander, and Mark Briscoe gave it all they had to earn the World TV Title match at "Border Wars 2013" but it came down to Mark scoring with the Froggy Elbow on Cedric to get the victory. Now on May 4th World TV Champion Matt Taven, with Truth Martini at his side, will defend the title against Mark Briscoe at "Border Wars 2013" live on iPPV!!

News


- Congratulations to the NEW ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe!!!!


- We are now on the road to "Border Wars 2013" and Jay Briscoe will make the first defense of his newly won World Championship on May 4th when ROH returns to Toronto & The Ted Reeve Arena on iPPV! His opponent, based on Match Maker Nigel McGuinness' proclamation on the 3/16/13 episode of ROH TV, will be the former World Television Champion Adam Cole! At "Supercard of Honor VII" Cole was the first man to pin Matt Hardy since the "Self Proclaimed Icon" returned to ROH competition late last year, but it did not parlay into reclaiming the TV Title from Matt Taven. As a matter of fact, Cole has come up on the losing end at all three of the last iPPV events ("FB 2012" to Hardy, "11th Anniversary" to Taven, & "SoH VII" to Taven). That is a simple fact that must weigh heavily on Cole's mind as "Border Wars 2013" creeps closer, but it is one that Cole must move past if he hopes to have any chance of dethroning Jay Briscoe in Toronto! Great seats are available right HERE in the ROH Store for both this event as well as our first international TV Taping the following day!


- Announced today multi-time GHC Champion Naomichi Marufuji and GHC Jr. Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori's matches have been signed for "Border Wars 2013", and we can now announce their respective bouts for each day! First, at "Border Wars 2013" on Saturday May 4th it will be Taiji Ishimori vs. Eddie Edwards and Naomichi Marufuji vs. Davey Richards! Then at the "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV Taping on May 5th its Taiji Ishimori vs. Roderick Strong and Naomichi Marufuji vs. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin! It may be your only opportunity to see two of NOAH's best in Ring of Honor this year so get your tickets now! Great seats for both "Border Wars 2013" on May 4th and our first ever international "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV Taping on May 5th can be purchased right HERE ! This will be great! 


- One half of the ROH Tag Team Champions Kyle O'Reilly suffered a very serious arm injury last Saturday against Davey Richards. Details are sketchy but we heard that O'Reilly will definitely be out of action for the next few weeks.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 04/03/13 - 04/03/13

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV


March 30th, 2013


- World Champion Kevin Steen came to the ring but before he could speak Jay Briscoe, his challenger at "Supercard of Honor VII", interrupted with his arm still in a sling.  In addition to saying some things that were censored, Jay said that for the past 11 years, ROH has been his life so when Steen & S.C.U.M talk about killing this company, that means they are talking about his livelihood.  Jay said hd does not take kindly to people talking about killing his livelihood so at Supercard of Honor, he is going to win the World Title. Steen laughed and began to say something about SCUM but was interrupted by Steve Corino.  Steve said he wants to know how Jay Briscoe can insult the World Champion, that Kevin Steen is the greatest World Champion in Ring of Honor history and that Jay is always just a bridesmaid.  Jay asked when Steen became Steve Corinos bitch. Steen tells Jay that he is glad that the Briscoes are getting title shots for his World Title because they deserve the matches, that  he is proud to be Ring of Honor champion, and he will be prouder when he beats both Briscoes.  Corino told Jay that should wear a mask because he is so ugly but, as Jay pulled a weapon out of his sling, Corino realized Steen had left and that he was alone in the ring.

Before anything happened, Jimmy Rave, Rhett Titus, and Cliff Compton hit the ring to stand with Corino which in turn brought out Caprice Coleman, Cedric Alexander, and Mark Briscoe.  Their brawl led to...


1. Rhett Titus & Cliff Compton beat Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander after Compton threw powder in the face of Coleman; Rave & Jacobs continued the assault after the match which brought out Mike Mondo and led to...


2. Jimmy Jacobs pinned Mike Mondo

- Steve Corino highjacked the "INSIDE ROH" segment, turning it to "INSIDE SCUM", and talking about the various members of his group...


3. Steve Corino, Rhino, & Matt Hardy defeated Jay Lethal, BJ Whitmer, and Michael Elgin; During the match both Lethal & Elgin were restrained which left Whitmer to fight off all three men on his own

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 03/27/13 - 03/27/13

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV


03/23/13


1. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin defeated Silas Young; Jay Lethal joined the commentary team during this bout in anticipation of the Elgin/Lethal clash at "Supercard of Honor VII"


- Charlie Haas hit the ring to run down the fans in Chicago, insult Shelton Benjamin, insist their potential match at "SoH VII" wouldn't happen, and challenge anyone to come out and fight him.  Grizzly Redwood answered the call which led to...


2. "The Outlaw" Charlie Hass submitted Grizzly Redwood; Following the match, Haas wouldn't release the hold which brought out Mike Mondo to run him off.  After a commerical break, Veda Scott interviewed Mondo about his return to ROH but it is interrupted by Steve Corino & S.C.U.M who assault both men. Veda essentially ends up a hostage for the group as Nigel McGuinness & members of the ROH locker room attempt to hit the ring. Steve tells them to back off unless they want something bad to happen to Scott and forces Nigel into making next week's episode of TV a S.C.U.M vs. ROH episode.  Steve said Nigel can make the matches but there is no one who can stop them.


3. TV Title #1 Contender Match: Matt Hardy vs. Adam Cole went to a No Contest after Rhino Gored Cole and it turned into a total brawl between S.C.U.M and the ROH locker room


This weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV Preview - Click HERE


- This week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV the battle lines have been drawn and it is S.C.U.M versus ROH in a series of bitter grudge matches! Plus Steve Corino hijacks Inside ROH!


News

 

- THIS Saturday night March 30th, Ring of Honor debuts in Asheville, NC with "WAR"! ROH World Champion Kevin Steen defends against Mark Briscoe, the new ROH TV Champion Matt Taven with Truth Martini steps into a 4 Corner Survival Proving Ground match with Roderick Strong, Jay Lethal and ACH, Coleman & Alexander battle The American Wolves, Rhett Titus and BJ Whitmer collide in a Grudge Match, reDRagon defend the World Tag Titles. Plus, as a result of what happened on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV last weekend when S.C.U.M assaulted Grizzly Redwood & Mike Mondo and essentially held Veda Scott hostage, a match has been signed for "WAR" with Grizzly Redwood & "No Fear" Mike Mondo vs. Two Members of S.C.U.M! It is shaping up to be another fantastic ROH event and "The Outlaw" Charlie Haas will also be in Asheville causing chaos! Tickets are on-sale now HERE or at the door on Saturday night!

 

- THIS JUST IN... Papa Briscoe and Uncle Jethro are traveling to Asheville THIS Saturday to support Mark in his big match!

 

- Also THIS Saturday in Asheville, there will be an autograph signing prior to the start of the show and it features two of the more...controversial...men in the ROH locker room: World Champion Kevin Steen and "The Outlaw" Charlie Haas! Who knows what could happen when two of Ring of Honor's most unpredictable men sit down to meet the fans? Make sure you are there live, and that you make it there early, to take advantage of this opportunity to meet two of ROH's best!

 

- The card is complete and tickets are SOLD OUT for "Supercard of Honor VII" on April 5th from New York City! The ONLY way to see this mega event is on iPPV right here at ROHwrestling.com. This event is absolutely loaded and signed yesterday, S.C.U.M (Jimmy Jacobs, Rhett Titus, Jimmy Rave, Cliff Compton, & Rhino) will go to war with HONOR (BJ Whitmer, Caprice Coleman, Cedric Alexander, Mike Mondo, & Mark Briscoe) in a huge 10-Man Tag! This one will be hard to contain and the intensity should be through the roof!

 

- Keep in mind that Mark Briscoe challenges Kevin Steen for the World Title THIS Saturday at "WAR" in Asheville, NC so the outcome of that match could certainly affect the main event of "Supercard of Honor VII" as well as the 10-Man Tag Team War. ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness has stated that he will make immediate changes to the lineup of "Supercard of Honor" if Mark is successful in dethroning Steen THIS Saturday.

 

- Speculation is running wild as to who Barrister R.D. Evans found to be the partner of "God's Gift" QT Marshall against Tadarius Thomas and ACH at Supercard of Honor VII. We do know that Evans recently traveled overseas on "important" business meetings but have no idea if those trips pertain to the mystery man.


- The new ROH Television Champion Matt Taven is definitely being put to the test immediately as champion. In Asheville THIS Saturday he faces Strong, Lethal, & ACH in a 4-Way Proving Ground Match and one week later he goes on to defend the TV Title against former champion Adam Cole and Matt Hardy in a 3-Way Elimination at "Supercard of Honor VII"! If Taven can survive the 3-Way then he will defend the TV Title the next day at the TV Taping against an opponent To Be Determined. Keep in mind that if Taven loses the Proving Ground in Asheville then he will face the winner of that match on April 6th in NYC, otherwise Nigel says that he will determine a challenger based off of performances at "Supercard of Honor".

 

- If Adam Cole regains the ROH TV Title at "Supercard of Honor VII" then his match on May 4th at "Border Wars 2013" will be Champion vs. Champion! It is not determined at this time if the TV Title will be on the line but it is certainly a possibility.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR - 03/6/13 - 03/06/13

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

 

03/02/13

 

1. S.C.U.M (Steve Corino & Rhino) defeated TheFlatliners (Asylum & Matt Burns)

 

- Nigel McGuinness brought Matt Hardy, still carrying the TVTitle he stole in Milwaukee, out to the ring. Nigel told man he is acting likea spoiled child and needs to turn over the belt or someone will take it fromhim. Hardy told Nigel he beat Adam Cole at Final Battle so he should be thechampion and after beating Whitmer in Milwaukee, Cole assaulted him and he onlyused the belt to defend himself.

 

He said Nigel isn't punishing Cole due to favoritism andthat Nigel is jealous of Matt. Nigel said that he might be jealous of Mattbecause of what he has accomplished, but Matt is probably jealous of himbecause of his time as ROH Champion. Nigel says that he was one of the mostacclaimed wrestlers in the sport and that is why Matt is here. Nigel said thatin two weeks, Matt will have a one on one match against Adam Cole. Hardy saidthat's all he wanted, that he has no problem handing the belt over to Nigel,and that in two weeks the wrestling icon will be champion. Nigel then told Mattthat he does not have a title match because he has not won with honor. RatherMatt will wrestle next week in a Four Corner Survival Match against MichaelElgin, Roderick Strong, and Davey Richards and if Matt can prove that he canfight with honor, Hardy will get his title match.

 

2. Grizzly Redwood vs. Vinny Marseglia never happenedbecause Kevin Steen came out, gave Vinny a Package Piledriver, and offeredGrizz the opportunity to wrestle him.  That led to...

 

3. Non-Title: World Champion Kevin Steen beat GrizzlyRedwood; Surprisingly after the match Steen shook Grizzly's hand and helped himto his feet

 

4. World Tag Title vs. Tag Team Career Match: Jay & MarkBriscoe beat WGTT (Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin) after Haas delivered anOlympic Slam to his partner and bailed; That loss means WGTT can no longer teamtogether in ROH...

News

 

- Ring of Honor wants to thank all of the fans who attendedour "11th Anniversary" and TV Taping in Chicago Ridge last Saturdayand Sunday. The reviews have been outstanding and we appreciate the greatfeedback! While the "11th Anniversary" proved to be a memorablebirthday for ROH, it was certainly not so in a positive fashion. Titles changedhands in two top-shelf bouts but the chaos that took place following the mainevent is what shook the foundation of honor. S.C.U.M has waged war on honor!The replay of this must-see event is available for On Demand viewing right HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/ippv).

 

- After the chaos that was unleashed upon Ring of Honor bySteve Corino & S.C.U.M at the 11th Anniversary Event lastSaturday night, ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness made a very firm stance thefollowing afternoon during the ROH TV Tapings. Make sure you check out upcomingepisodes to see just how ROH recovered from the onslaught and you can click HERE (http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/desk-nigel-mcguinness)to read a statement from McGuinness himself addressing the immediate future ofRing of Honor.

 

- In McGuinness' statement he announced that both Mark &Jay Briscoe will receive future ROH World Title shots! At "WAR" on March 30th in Asheville, North Carolina(http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/ashville-nc-march-30th)... Mark Briscoe will face Kevin Steen for the ROH World Title and on April 5th at "Supercard of Honor VII"(http://www.rohwrestling.com/live/events/2013/apr/5/supercard-honor-vii-4513-nyc)live on iPPV... Jay Briscoe will face the ROH World Champion be itis his own brother or Kevin Steen!

 

- In addition to those two title matches, Nigel has alsoconfirmed today (INSERT LINK) that Adam Cole will receive a ROH World Titleshot on Saturday, May 4 at "Border Wars 2013" (http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/toronto-ontario-may-4th)in Toronto, Canada LIVE on iPPV!

 

- Buzzsaw BJ Whitmer is also in line to receive a futureWorld Title shot and the date for that championship bout will be announcedtomorrow right here on ROHWrestling.com.

 

- Congratulations to the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions,reDRagon, Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly! Fish & O'Reilly defeated Jay& Mark Briscoe last Saturday at the "11th Anniversary" to becomethe 36th Tag Team Champions.

 

- Speaking of the tag team scene, it is really going to heatup at "WAR" in Asheville on March 30th when The American Wolves takeon Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander!

 

- New H.O.T member Matt Taven shocked the wrestling world bydefeating Adam Cole to become the NEW ROH World Television Champion lastSaturday at the "11th Anniversary"! This outcome blindsided everyone,including Matt Hardy, and bookies raked in the cash. Truth Martini has latchedonto Taven and claims that "the H.O.T will be too hot for TV!"

 

- Steve Corino will be issuing an official written statementregarding S.C.U.M very soon. While the goal of S.C.U.M is obvious, it is stilla question as to what exactly motivated people like Rhett Titus, Jimmy Rave andCliff Compton to join S.C.U.M. We assume that Matt Hardy has joined since hefeels that he has been mistreated by ROH officials and Nigel McGuinness sincejoining ROH, but at this point everything is speculation.

 

- Nigel McGuinness is looking to sign "The Outlaw"Charlie Haas vs. his former partner Shelton Benjamin! It was inevitable thatROH officials would want this after what happened last week on ROH TV but Haassays that Shelton will never show his face in ROH again. "Shelton ain'tcoming back, he is gone from ROH and he is a piece of s****" explainedHaas. "No need to sign the f****** match. F***, if you want to see a goodmatch sign me up for a cheeseburger eating contest."

 

- Ring of Honor will be holding another two-day tryout campand seminar on Saturday and Sunday, April 20th and 21st at ROHs headquartersand wrestling dojo in suburban Philadelphia (Bristol, PA). This camp will providethose who attend the rare opportunity to be seen and evaluated by officials andpro wrestlers from Ring of Honor.

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

- World Champion Kevin Steen came to the ring alone and addressed that people havsaid that he has changed lately.  He talked about how ROH has changed over the years and how when he won the World Title he was not proud of it because he wanted to kill the company.  Kevin said he did not want to kill ROH because he hated it rather because he loved it and wanted to save it from what he believed Jim Cornette had done to Ring of Honor. Steen stated that this company was about young wrestlers busting their asses to be the best and now with Jim gone it can be about that again. With JC gone, Kevin is proud to be ROH World Champion and since Jay Lethal is the man who got rid of Jim, Kevin is giving him a title match.

In addition, Mark & Jay Briscoe face Lancelot & HarlemBravado in tag action!

 

NEWS & RUMORS

 

-Jim Cornette is still recovering from the incident atKiller Instinct and he is not expected to be traveling anytime soon. We willhave to wait and see how this plays out at our TV Taping on Saturday, November3rd in Pittsburgh as Cornette has never missed a TV Taping. Cornette isresponsible for not only match making and production but he is a well respectedauthority figure that keeps things from turning into complete chaos backstageand on the air.

 

-We all know by now what was in the box presented to ROHWorld Champion Kevin Steen after his unbelievable title defense against MichaelElgin at "Glory by Honor XI". To the shock of everyone, Steen pulledout the mask of his arch rival El Generico! After the iPPV went off of the air,Steen proceeded to freak out and smash the ROH World Title belt repeatedlyagainst the steel entrance ramp. Fortunately the belt is still in one piecehowever the same cannot be said about Steen who has slipped into a deepermadness. It will be interesting to see where this goes but it seems that theinevitable battle is pending once again!

 

-The new ROH World Championship belt will debut at FinalBattle 2012.

 

-No Fear Mike Mondo suffered a very serious ankle injuryduring the course of his match with Mike Bennett at "Glory by Honor XI.Early reports are that Mondo will be out of action for one year. Mondo brokehis ankle early in the bout, however he continued the match and even climbedthe entranceway and dove off onto Bennett in a must-see moment! Mondocontinuously proves that he has one of the strongest fighting spirits in all ofwrestling. You cannot deny the effort in everything Mondo does and gives to thefans each time he has a match in ROH.

 

-The House of Truth is crumbling before our eyes. RoderickStrong apparently quit the HoT at "Glory by Honor XI before his scheduledmatch with Tadarius Thomas and Strong walked out on Truth Martini. Truth, in a panic,then brought out Rhino (who Truth allegedly hired for the night to help Elginin his match with Steen) to face Thomas. Tadarius was able to get the biggestwin of his career by upsetting Rhino after Truth tried a little too hard tohelp his mercenary. After the bout, Rhino grabbed Truth Martini and pressslammed him over the top rope to the floor against the guardrails. Martinispants were ruined and he was scarred up pretty bad following the collision intothe guardrail. It will be very interesting to see what happens to the House ofTruth going forward.

 

-Even though Unbreakable Michael Elgin was unsuccessful"Glory by Honor XI, he proved to the world that he is one of the strogestand toughest men alive.

Cole essentially had a target onMondo's leg after No Fear hurt it early on but Mondo still keptup the fight, even after taking a German Suplex on the floor, gettingcaught with a vicious superkick, and being German Suplexed into thecorner. Mondo managed to nail Cole with a DDT but the champion gothis foot on the ropes to survive the pinfall

Strong began to chop Mondo up against the guardrails butMondo responded with a head butts and busted the former ROH World Champion'snose open. An infuriated Strong just kicked Mondo in the head before returningto the ring to stop the 20-count.

Back in the ring, Strong just abused Mondo with chops andkicks and Mondo even returned to the floor to escape the barrage. On the floor,Mondo ran Strongs back into the guardrails to slow the assault but Roddy gotMondo on his shoulders and tossed Mondo into the ring post, following it upwith a suplex on the floor.

 

Mondo fought back once the action got back into the ring,even nailing a moonsault for a two count. At one point it seemed Mondo injuredhimself but refused the referee's offer to call the match. Strong set him upfor the gutbuster but Mondo escaped. Strong hit him with a boot and Mondoresponded with the same as well as a spinebuster for a near fall. Strong wasable to secure an omoplata but Mondo reversed into a a rollup for a near fall.Roderick caught Monod with a roaring elbow, then the big double knees gutbusterbut Mondo still kicked out!

Proving Ground: ROH World TV Champion Adam Cole vs. BrutalBob

INSIDERING OF HONOR

Last week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

We start off this weeks show with alook at footage and comments from Steve Corino and the agreement thathim and Jimmy Jacobs made to be a part of the Tag Team Tournament.With the attack by the Guardians of Truth and Rhino on Jacobs,Corino, and Steen, what does that mean? Did Corino and Jacobs getsome revenge later in the show?


The ROH World Tag Team Title Tournamentcontinued right off the bat last weekend with the final 1stRound match-up!


Tag Team Tournament First RoundMatch: Mark and Jay Briscoe versus BLK Out (Ruckus and Blk Jeez)


This was a hot match with both teamgiving it their absolute all in order to advance in the tournament.BLKOut impressed in their ROH debut as a team but it was theexperience of the 7-Time Former Tag Champions who won out in the endwhen Mark hit a running drop kick on Jeez while Jay hits a forearm onRuckus. Jay nailed a neck breaker and Mark went up top for the elbowdrop and Jay gets the three count.


Winners: The Briscoe Brothers


Veda Scott was joined by Truth Martiniwho discussed Rhino's impending ROH World Title match with KevinSteen at Death Before Dishonor X and Truth promised everyonethat we will see a new World Champion. The interview then turned tothe problems between Roderick Strong and Michael Elgin. Truth saidthat she is trying to stir the pot but at the end of the day, theylisten to him. She asked Truth if he is worried about S.C.U.M tryingto get revenge. He said Truth always outnumbers S.C.U.M.


Mike Sydal versus The ProdigyMike Bennett (with Maria Kanellis)


In this rematch from Unity, Sydalagain proved that he has all the tools in the world to hang with thebest in Ring of Honor but it was ultimately the involvement of MikeMondo that proved to be the decisive factor in the bout. AfterBennett hit the Box Office Smash and decided to pull Sydalsshoulders up instead of getting the three count, Mondo cames out toringside and kissed Maria. Bennett releases the Cobra Clutch Sleeperhold he had applied and chased Mondo around the ring, eventuallybeing counted out.


Winner: Mike Sydal (by count out)


RD Evans then joined Nigel McGuinnessand Kevin Kelly at the announce table for the next bout.


Mike Posey versus The SicilianPsychopath Tommaso Ciampa


This was over in short order as Ciampadelivered a series of running knees to the head to his opponent then,after the fourth, picked up Posey to deliver the Project Ciampa.


Winner: Tommaso Ciampa


After the match, Prince Nana attackedRD Evans at the announce table. Nigel pulled Nana off Evans as theannounce table was been destroyed.


It was then time for this latestInside ROH first touching on the Tag Title Tournament thatculminates at Death Before Dishonor X. In one semifinal match,Cedric Alexander and Caprice Coleman will face Steve Corino and JimmyJacobs. In the other semifinal match, The Briscoes will face CharlieHaas and Rhett Titus.


We learned that Shelton Benjamin willbe in the corner of Haas & Titus in Chicago Ridge this Saturdaybecause suspension was up after the first of the month. Charlie saidthat Shelton will be his corner man and he does not care if Rhettlikes it or not.


Rhett said that he doesnt trustShelton and he does not like him. He will have to have his eyes onhis opponents and in the back of his head. If either of them try todo something funny, they will find out that he might only be one man,but he can fight like two.


In lieu of the Jay Lethal vs. Homicidematch at DBD X, we take a look back at what Jay Lethal did lastweek to Matt Taven and the referee. Jay said that some people askedhim why he did what he did, but you shouldn't be surprised. You canonly be pushed and poked so many times before you have to change yourattitude. Jay sid that his focus is the World Championship and hewill face a former World Champion in Homicide in Chicago. He tellsHomicide to bring his fork because Jay will bring the main course andhe will hand feed Homicide an ass whooping. He will prove that he isthe man to take out Kevin Steen.


ROH World TV Title Match: Adam Coleversus Michael Elgin (with Truth Martini and The Guardians of Truth)


Elgin followed the Code of Honor to thedismay of Martini then these two warriors when on to prove why theyare two of the best young talents in professional wrestling. Coleused his speed and quickness while Elgin went to his power game,which made for quite an even battle.


It all came down to Elgin accidentallyBuckle Bombing Cole into the referee who happened to get trapped inthe corner at the wrong time. Taking advantage of the referee beingdown, Martini had The Guardians of Truth attack Cole but Elgin sendtCole to the floor to stop the attack by the Guardians.


Jimmy Jacobs & Steve Corino thenhit the ring and they go after The Guardians of Truth, followed byKevin Steen who went face to face with Elgin, the man he could likelymeet at Glory By Honor XI.

Steen pushed Elgin, Elgin pushed back,punches started flying, then Rhino...Steen's opponent for DeathBefore Dishonor X on 9/15... made his way to the ring and he wentafter the ROH World Champion.


Roderick Strong then got involved,pulled Elgin aside and then he goes after Steen. Elgin pulled Strongoff Steen and they had words, which began to get physical, as theshow went off the air.

Generation Next of Aries, Shelley, Evans and Strong joined The Embassy in putting the boots to Foley. Maff & Whitmer then fought off everyone and made the save for one of wrestling's biggest icons. Foley then cut a must see, classic promo saying that he was sent some ROH DVDs and after witnessing some of the hardcore action he saw an attitude and spirit in ROH that he wanted to be a part of.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR


Last week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling"


Steve Corino informed the world that he & Jimmy Jacobs offered up their ROH careers in exchange for a spot in the ROH World Tag Title Tournament. If they lose, they are done with Ring of Honor...

1st Round ROH Tag Title Tournament: Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs beat Lancelot & Harlem Bravado

After the match, the Guardians of Truth made their way to the ring and go after Corino and Jacobs. Kevin Steen came out to assist his S.C.U.M teammates against The Guardians of Truth but Rhino also came out and GORED Steen.


This week's "Inside ROH" featured a discussion of the ROH World TV Title situation as Adam Cole is set to defend against Michael Elgin next week and the winner will then see Mike Mondo at "Death Before Dishonor X" on September 15th.


The next topic was the World Title Match at "Death Before Dishonor X" between Kevin Steen and Rhino. 


The next topic was the Tag Team Tournament and we see that, after their victory earlier, Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs will face Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander in the Semi-Finals. 

We see the other two quarterfinal matches and we get comments from the Briscoes. Jay talks about facing the Wildcard team in BLKOut. Mark says something that makes Jay wonder what Mark is saying. He says that they will take out Blk Out and go to Chicago to become the Tag Team Champions. 


We are back with a Jay Lethal video package where he talks about being somewhere else for six years trying to be somebody else. He has come back to Ring of Honor because this is where a professional wrestler can prove that he is the best in the world. 


Jay Lethal vs. Matt Taven

Before the match starts, Lethal got on the microphone and said that there is something on his mind. Jay tells everyone about something that happened backstage. Jay said that he ran into Jim Cornette and he told Jim that he might have looked high and looked low for a challenger for Kevin Steen, but he never looked in his direction. Jay wanted to know why he never got a shot at Kevin Steen. 


Jay said that Jim looked at him and Jim told him that he is a better wrestler and athlete than Kevin Steen, but he cannot beat Kevin Steen. Jay said that he was shocked at what Jim said. Jim told him that he was not mean enough and did not have the killer instinct. 


Lethal shook Tavens hand and then he kicked him in the groin. Lethal then gave the referee a Lethal Combination. 

Jay looked into the camera and wanted to know what Jim thinks about his Killer Instinct.

Last weekend on"Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

 

Right after a quick look at Rhino's defeat of Eddie Edwardslast week to earn an ROH World Title match at Death Before Dishonor X onSeptember 15, we jumped right into ROH World Tag Team Title Tournamentaction...

 

1st Round Tag TitleTournament Match: Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs. The Young Bucks

 

Right off the bat, Matt and Nick shook hands with each otherbut refused to shake hands with their Caprice & Cedric.

 

Matt and Cedric began the match and Matt pie facedAlexander. He pushed back, and got his offense rolling including catching Mattwith a rana before tagging in Caprice. Coleman went for a slingshot senton butMatt got his knees up and tagged in his brother.

 

Nick came in but Coleman took back over with a drop kick fora near fall. Still Matt interfered and sent Coleman to the apron. Cedricstopped a double team but Nick cut him back down while Coleman hit a series ofrolling Northern Lights suplexes for another near fall. Nick reversed an Irishwhip which allowed Matt to strike Coleman on the turnbuckles.

 

The Bucks took control of the match, really taking it toCaprice with a variety of offensive manuevers. Coleman tried to fight back witha slap to Matt but he nailed a modified jackhammer for a near fall.

 

The YB even drew in Cedric which allowed them to cheat whilethe referee tried to remove Alexander from the ring.

Then they confronted ANX anddemanded a rematch but were refused so Shelton hit Kenny with a chair and Kennyleft the company.

 

Jim said that it was excessive violence and warranted asuspension.

 

Charlie said that they should have had him wrestle RhettTitus with the titles on the line. Rhett thenc came to the ring and said thatCharlie is out here whining and complaining but if anyone has the right to comeout and complain, it is him. He said that he worked hard to become the tag teamchampion and reminded Charlie that he pinned Charlie to win the titles.

 

Charlie said that it was a fluke and even Rhetts son knowsit. He says that Rhett is a disgrace to the tag team division. Jim tells themthat they have the right to pick a tag team partner.

 

Charlie said that he wants Shelton reinstated and part ofthe tournament. Rhett says that he has faced adversity before. He says that hewill find a new tag team partner and become the new Tag Team Champion.

 

Charlie dared Rhett to pick him as his partner, saying thatthey can work through the tournament and become Tag Team Champions and thenthey can fight over the titles.

 

Cornette said that Rhett isnt going to fall for this. Hesays that he will not let this go on. Rhett said that he likes the idea.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling"

Kyle O'Reilly vs. Matt Taven

O'Reilly took the microphone and reiterated to everyone that he did not tap out in the Hybrid Rules match against Adam Cole at "Best in the World 2012" before beginning the contest.

Taven gave a good fight while it lasted, managing to nail a nice Suicide Dive and a big neckbreaker, but ultimately it came down to O'Reilly's superior striking ability and his submissions skills as he picked up the victory via Fujiwara armbar.

Winner: Kyle O'Reilly

Rhino w/ Truth Martini vs. Todd Sople

Gore!!!

Winner: Rhino

After the match, Martini gets on the mic and said that in the House of Truth there is love, there is loyalty, and there is unity. He says that he has heard all of the rumors but the fact is Michael Elgin & Roderick Strong work together like a nice Swiss watch. 

Michael Elgin & Roderick Strong vs. Lancelot & Harlem Bravado

Elgin followed the Code of Honor despite Martini's protestations while Roddy told Elgin he would start the match.  The unity didn't last long as Elgin abruptly tagged himself in followed by Strong doing the exact same.  Once the match finally got underway, it was quite the back-and-forth contest with Elgin finally using his power advantage to get some control of the contest for the HoT duo.  Still it was the dissension between Strong & Elgin that ultimately proved the deciding factor as Elgin's refusal to tag in at one point allowed Harlem to roll-up Roderick for the victory!

Winners: The Bravados

The show went to commercial with Martini trying to calm down his two wrestlers and returned with another edition of "Inside ROH" touching first on The House of Truth and the match between The Guardians of Truth and the Briscoes.  First highlights from the match are aired, including footage from the post-match attack with help from Rhino and Roderick Strong, as well as Michael Elgin coming out but not helping.


Jay Briscoe talks about what the Guardians of Truth did to them on television and Mark says that it was horse manure and pig droppings. Jay mentions Rhino and Roderick Strong getting involved. Jay says that he respects that Elgin did not get involved. Jay says that they are going to the House of Truth and they are going to destroy it.

The next topic is who is the First Lady of Ring of Honor, Maria Kanellis or Sara Del Rey. We go to footage from last weeks Mike Bennett versus Roderick Strong match and Saras involvement after the match. 

Jay Lethal, Kenny King, and Rhett Titus versus Steve Corino, Jimmy Jacobs, and ROH World Champion Kevin Steen

The fight started before the bell even rang which lead to everyone but Lethal & Jacobs brawling on the outside. The match eventually got an official start as Kenny King and Steve Corino paired off in the ring. ANX used their experience as a team to maintain control over Corino but a distraction from Jacobs allowed Corino to hit a side suplex on King. 


Steen and Jacobs bit King, which brought in Titus and Lethal to his defense and served to distract the referee.  The SCUM trio of course took advantage of the situation by beating King down in their corner. King finally evaded a clothesline attempt from Corino and tagged in Lethal. The former TV Champion came in with a flurry of offense, avoiding a Steen clothesline attempt, and nailing a dive on Corino. Lethal hits Hail to the King on Steen but chaos resumes as everyone starts fighting again.  Jay manages to catch Steen with a Lethal Combination but all six men are down. Corino stopped Lethal from hitting the Lethal Injection on Jacobs, which allowed Jacobs to hit Jay with the Contra Code, Corino followed with a sliding clothesline, then Steen connected with a Swanton Bomb on Lethal, but he somehow survived it all and kicked out!  Finally Jacobs had the spike but Lethal caught him with a kick to the head and hit the Lethal Injection for the three count.


Winners: Jay Lethal, Kenny King, and Rhett Titus

After the match, Steen attacked Lethal from behind and sent him into the guardrails. Titus & King got into it Jacobs and Corino put Steen pulled Titus out of the ring and sent him into the guardrails too.  Corino put down Kenny King with a clothesline then Steen brought a chair into the ring for Corino to drop King headfirst on.

This weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling 

- The main event features a big ROH World Championship match as former champion Homicide battles current champion Kevin Steen! In addition, Sara Del Rey faces Princess Mia Yim in one-on-one womens action. Plus Inside ROH takes a look at the upcoming Tag Team Tournament for the vacant ROH Tag Titles.

News & Rumors 

- Boiling Point 2012 last Saturday in Providence, RI was a huge success and an event that was completely sold out!

- The Sicilian Psychopath Tommaso Ciampa proved last Saturday that he is a true warrior in every sense of the word. Ciampa severely hurt his knee in the opening minutes of his 2 Out of 3 Falls bout with Jay Lethal but he fought through the pain and wrestled for almost 20 minutes. Ciampa was defeated 2 falls to 1 but there is a question whether Ciampa would have even lost if Prince Nana didnt attack Barrister R.D. Evans at ringside causing Tommasos attention to be completely diverted. 

- Truth Martini announced to the world last Saturday that Rhino would challenge for the ROH World Title against Kevin Steen at Death Before Dishonor X in Chicago Ridge on September 15th live on iPPV! Everyone will want to tune in to ROH TV this weekend to see exactly how that intriguing contest was officially signed.

- Truth also tried to announce negotiations for Roderick Strong and Michael Elgin challenging the new ROH Tag Champions on October 13th at Glory by Honor XI but Elgin cut him off and stated he had went to ROH officials earlier in the night and finally signed on to get his shot at Glory by Honor IX on October 13th in Mississauga! Then Roderick Strong claimed Michael Elgin's title opportunity, the one he earned by winning Survival of the Fittest 2011, belonged to him as per Martini's promises. This led to Roderick going on strike from the House of Truth and that he would sit ringside with the fans during Elgin's title match to watch him lose. Truth Martini has not been around for comment but apparently Martini is very anxious to make Roderick happy again. This is a very interesting situation as both Strong and Elgin are scheduled to team up at our next event in Charlotte, NC on September 8th.

- Gods Gift QT Marshall was victorious in the 4 Corner Survival last Saturday at Boiling Point 2012 and has earned an ROH contract. Marshall has officially signed for Ring of Honor's return to Charlotte, NC on September 8th and Baltimore on September 22nd. Congratulations to this gifted athlete.

INSIDE RING OF HONOR

Last week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

Truth Martini made his way to the ring to introduce the Guardians of Truth...

The Guardians of Truth w/ Truth Martini vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe

Martini unmasked the Guardians to reveal an identical mask underneath. Jay started the match off, but the Guardians of Truth immediately double teamed him. Mark made the tag, connected with a dropkick to get control but the action spills outside and one of the Guardians threw Mark Briscoe into the guardrail to take over.

The Guardians of Truth are still in control as the show returns from commercial. The GoT leapfrog onto Mark's back as he's draped across the guardrail and lock on a sleeper hold once the action gets back into the ring.  Mark fought out of it and made the tag to Jay who cleaned house with the GoT. The Briscoes set up for the Doomsday Device, but the Guardians break it up. The GoT go for a double team of their own, but Mark broke that up which gave Jay the opening to roll up one of the Guardians up for the victory.

Winners: The Briscoes

After the match the fight continued which brought out Roderick Strong & Rhino to assist their HoT allies. Michael Elgin also walked to ringside, but turned right back around and went to the back. Adam Cole, Jay Lethal, Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander then rushed the ring to run off the HoT.

Kevin Kelly introduced the upcoming challenger for the World Title at "Boiling Point 2012", CHIKARA Grand Champion Eddie Kingston. Kingston said hes struggled to become a World Champion for 10 years, and at Boiling Point he will have that opportunity. He said he will show the belt to all those who doubted him when he wins it. Kingston said hes going to win the belt for Larry Sweeney, and his own son to prove to him that he can be anything that he wants to be. Kingston closed by saying he will go through hell and spit in Satans face to become the next ROH World Champion.

In this week's edition of "Inside ROH" we first see a recap from last week when Tommaso Ciampa wanted to know about the collusion between the HoT & The Embassy when RD Evans ratted out Prince Nana. It seems RD Evans has assumed now Ciampas contract. 

We then get a recap of last weeks confrontation between The All Night Express and Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team. ROH officials have indefinitely suspended Shelton Benjamin for hitting Kenny King over the head with a steel chair.

We then take a look at the ROH World TV Title match where Adam Cole defeated Roderick Strong to became the 6th World Television Champion.

Mike Bennett w/ Maria & Brutal Bob vs. Lance Storm

This was the final match in the series with each man coming in with one win a piece.  They traded control in the opening moments of the contest leading to Bennett escaping a Single Leg Boston Crab attempt. A dropkick garnered a two count for Storm, Bennett tried to take control but a corner splash missed, giving Storm back the advantage in the match. Storm and Bennett went strike for strike on the apron, but Bennett tossed Storm into the barricade to take over. 

Bennett threw Storm shoulder-first into the ring post. Lance attempted to fight back but Bennett shut that down with a shoulder-breaker for a two count. Storm was able to counter a suplex attempt with a small package, but Bennett cut him back down with a clothesline. Storm finally nailed an enziguri to stop Bennett and put both men down as the referee counted. Storm rolls to the apron, Bennett went after him and tried to suplex him, but Storm clotheslined Bennett back into the ring. The two exchanged shots in the middle of the ring, Lance scored a springboard clothesline for a two count but missed a second enziguri which allowed Bennett to lock in a Single Leg Boston Crab, Storm's own move. Storm countered that and was able to lock in a Single Leg Boston Crab of his own, but Bennett reached the ropes to break the hold. 

Storm went for a superplex, but Brutal Bob grabbed his foot, which gave Bennett the opening to hit a neckbreaker. Maria jumped on the apron to distract the official while Bob slide a chair into the ring and Bennett hit the Photo Finish onto the chair!

Winner by Pinfall: Mike Bennett

Following the match, Bennett and Bob held Lance up for Maria to slap which brought out Sara Del Rey and Eddie Edwards, their opponents at "Boiling Point 2012" to make the save for the Canadian Icon.

INSIDERING OF HONOR

Last weekend on "Ring of Honor Wrestling" TV

The show opened up with a recap of thematch between Eddie Edwards and Mike Bennett, where Bennett, BrutalBob and Maria beat down Edwards after the match.

This led right into...

Mike Bennett & Brutal Bob w/Maria vs Eddie Edwards & Adam Cole

Edwards and Bennett started the matchoff and it was Eddie who quickly got the advantage in the match.Eventually Bennett got the distance to tag in Bob, but Coleimmediately took control back with a series of armdrags. Bennett tookcontrol for his team from the apron when he struck Edwards, thedistraction giving Bob the chance to clothesline Edwards.

After taking a bit of a beating,Edwards was able to land on his feet after The Prodigyattempted a Suplex, and make the tag to Cole. Cole came in like ahouse of fire, tried going up top but, Bob stopped him while Edwards& Bennett spilled to the outside on a suplex. Cole, this timesuccesfully, flew off the top rope and hit a crossbody on Bob to pickup the pinfall for his team.

Winners: Eddie Edwards & AdamCole

After the match, Maria slapped Cole,but before he could do anything, Bob took the opportunity to attackAdam from behind. Bob restrained Cole while Maria hit him with herboot, but as she went for a second shot, Sara Del Rey made asurprising return to Ring of Honor to fend off Maria & Bob.

Coming off that contest, it was timefor this week's Inside ROH segment which focused first on AdamCole and his Hybrid Rules battle with Adam Cole from Best in theWorld 2012. It's announced that next week Cole will challenge forRoderick Strongs World TV Title.

Footage from the Pittsburgh eventfeaturing an awards ceremony for the legendary Bruno Sammartino airedfollowed by a word from Lance Storm who said in two weeks, his feudwith Mike Bennett is over.

We now get highlights from the AllNight Express winning the ROH World Tag Team Titles at Best in theWorld 2012 from Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team which led into:

Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team(Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin) vs Fusion DS (Matt Saigon andDamian Dragon)

Charlie Haas immediately took controlof the match after Shelton Benjamin, on the apron, struck DamianDragon from behind while Haas did it from the front. Haas andBenjamin laid a beating on Dragon until he was able to fight free ofa powerbomb and slide between Shelton's legs to tag in Saigon. Saigonfought back hard but Benjamin quickly ended it with a clothesline andsuperkick. Charlie came in to finish the job with the Olympic Slam onSiagon to pick up the pinfall.

Winners: Charlie Haas & SheltonBenjamin

Afterwards Charlie Haas grabbed amicrophone and said that next week Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team isdemanding to face the All Night Express in the ring.

Veda Scott was backstage with JimCornette who said he was looking outside of Ring of Honor to findsomeone to face Steen in a World Title match tonight. Mike Mondointerrupted Cornette and essentially said to give him that shot andthat Steen will get no rest, no mercy and no fear. Cornette concededand gaves Mondo the title match against Steen.

ROH World Title Match: Kevin Steenw/ Jimmy Jacobs defends vs. Mike Mondo

Steen was on the mic while making hisentrance and said that Cornette is so desperate to get the title offhim that now wrestlers dont even need to win matches to earn titleshots. He ran down Mondo for not beating Davey and said when he'sdone Mondo will have no pulse.

Mondo punched Steen in the face tostart things off while Steve Corino joined the commentary team.

They brawled around the outside of thering with Mondo actually in control as he sendt Steen into thebarricade. They fought up the entrance way where Steen tried tothrow the barricade onto Mondo, but Mondo moved. Unfortunately forMike that barricade would prove his undoing as Steen powerbombedMondo on top of it to take control. Mondo crawled his way back intothe ring at the count of 19 but Steen was in control, even getting onon the mic during the match and telling Mondo he doesnt deservethe title shot and that after the match he isnt going to be knownas No Fear, but No Balls.

Mondo fired back, Steen went outside,Mondo connected with a dive to the outside. Mondo hit a double stompa la Davey Richards and got a close two count. Mondo tried to go upto the top, but Steen hit an elevated DDT, and followed it up with acorner cannonball for a two. Mondo countered the F Cinq into a smallpackage for another close near fall but Steen dropped Mondo throatfirst across the top rope, and follows it up with the F Cinq toretain his ROH World Title.

Winner & Still ROH WorldChampion: Kevin Steen

After the match, Jimmy Jacobs began tobeat down Mondo which brought out Eddie Kingston to make the save!Kingston and Steen began to slug it out before Jacobs jumped in.Security hit the ring to break it up as Kingston fought back then hita suicide dive on a group of security guards!

Last week on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

 Last weekend Ring of Honor hit Charleston, WV for anotheredition of Road Rage taped back on June 15th featuring ROH World ChampionKevin Steen defending against Die Hard Eddie Edwards in the main event. Firstoff though was Jay Lethal vs. Michael Elgin in the opening contest.

After comments from both Lethal & Elgin, including aheated moment between Elgin and Roderick Strong where Unbreakable told Strongto stay away from the ring, the action got underway.

 

Jay Lethal vs. Michael Elgin

 

Elgin actually shook hands with Lethal, following the Codeof Honor, before the match got started but once it did it was quite the backand for the contest until Truth Martini attempted to get involved, causingenough of a distraction to allow Elgin to take control. Jay attempted to getback into the match but Elgin sent him over the top rope to the floor where,with the referee out of position, Martini kicked and chopped down on Lethal. Lethalfought back again, tried for a springboard move, but Martini interfered yetagain, pulling his leg. Lethal recovered though and managed to get a few nearfalls with a sunset flip and then a rollup. Elgin missed a spinning back fistbut Lethal missed an enzuigiri which opened him up for Elgin to get a Germansuplex for a near victory. Elgin delivered a running knee to Lethal and thensent him into the turnbuckles. Lethal blocked a knee attempt which opened upElgin to get hit with an enzuigiri to the back and Lethal to hit the LethalCombination. He went to the top rope for the big but Roderick Strong came outto stop Lethal while the referee was distracted with Martini. Lethal kicksStrong off and leaps over Elgin. Lethal hits a springboard drop kick thatknocks Strong off the apron. Elgin with the spinning back fist and he tries forthe spinning power bomb but Strong gets into the ring and argues with Elgin.Lethal drop kicks Elgin into Strong and then Lethal hits the Lethal Injectionfor the three count.

 

After the match, Strong and Elgin have some words andMartini wants Strong and Elgin to make up but Elgin left the ring. Strongcalled Elgin back to the ring but Elgin takes the microphone and tells Roddythis is the last mistake he will ever make.

 

This edition of Inside ROH took a look at some of thefootage from the Charleston event and Kevin Kelly mentioned that footage fromNew Yorks Best in the World 2012 iPPV will be seen in the coming weeksincluding the the Fit Finlay versus Michael Elgin match as well as the WorldTelevision Title Match between Roderick Strong, Tommaso Ciampa, and Jay Lethal.

Kevin asked Jim Cornette about making the match betweenKevin Steen and Eddie Edwards a title match. Cornette said that because Steenmade a poor impression on a sponsor, this match would be for the title. Steenaddressed the people of West Virginia and he told JC to listen to what the fansare chanting. The crowd chanted Mr. Wrestling which Kevin said that is thename that Jim told Bobby Cruise never to introduce him as. Steen said that theWorld Title proves that he is Mr. Wrestling.

Jim asks Kevin if he wants him to enter the ring. Steentells Jim that he has a lot to tell him about. Steen says that the peopledisagree with Cornette that he is not Mr. Wrestling. The title also disagreeswith Jim. Steen says that he wants to tell Jim about the great time he had withthe sponsor last week at dinner. Jim wants Kevin to know how much money he costthe company over his tricks. Steen says that the sponsors overreacted when theycalled security. Cornette says that Steen threatened his life. Steen says thatCornette was wrong. He just told the guy that if he continued to poke him, hewouldnt order off the menu, he would feast on his face. Cornette says that ifSteen was the World Champ, he would ruin the company because of the way thesponsors would react. Because he wants someone to beat Steen for the title,tonights match is for the World Title. If Edwards does not win tonight and ifDavey does not win at Best in the World 2012, every time Steen is in asingles match, it will be for the title. Cornette doesnt care who it is. Itwill happen before the affiliates meeting in September. It will happen sooneror later.

Steen says that sooner or later, they will be dead. ForCornette, it will be sooner and it will be later for him. Steen remindsCornette that he is the World Champion. Steve Corino has joined Jim and Kevinat the announce table.

Eddie Edwards made his way to the ring for the title matchand immediately Steen offered his hand but Edwards kicked it away. It was aphysical battle that saw Jimmy Jacobs get involved but admonished by theofficial for his involvement. The action spilled onto the floor, all around thering, and saw both men really tear into one another.

June 26th, 2012 - 06/26/12

INSIDE RING OF HONOR

Last week on Ringof Honor Wrestling TV

The show started off with a look at last weeks show whenEddie Edwards came out after Mike Bennetts match to even the odds on apost-match attack by Bennett & Bob Evans. We also hear the challenge thatBennett made for Edwards to face Bob Evans.

- Die Hard Eddie Edwards beat Bob Evans w/ Mike Bennett &Maria Kanellis

The bout started with Edwards in complete control but adistraction by Bennett gave Evans the opening to take over with runningshoulder tackle and kicks to the head. Evans shockingly used some basicwrestling maneuvers to keep control of the match but Edwards slowly fought backinto control with his vicious kicks & chops before the action spilled outto the floor briefly.

Back in the ring Edwards went up top for a double stomp butEvans moved. Edwards got into the Achilles Lock but Bennett got on the apron whichcaused Edwards to release the hold. Evans attempted to roll Edwards up but theformer World Champion rolled through and got the three count with a backslide.

After the match, Bennett & Evans attacked Edwards until,to the shock of all, The Notorious 187 Homicides music played and he hit thering to fend them off. Homicide checked on Edwards but Eddie pushed him away.Homicide told Eddie that he was just trying to help him out, they shook hands,which was all just a set-up by Homicide to kick Edwards in the midsection andhit him with the Cop Killa.

It is time to talk about the Television Title picture and itfocuses on the actions of Prince Nana, Barrister R.D. Evans, and Truth Martini.Kevin Kelly suggested that there might have been some sort of collusion betweenthe Embassy and House of Truth.

We went to comments from Truth and Nana, but Evans stoppedNana from making any comments.

Jay Lethal, prior to his match, talked about how crookedNana and Truth both are and that he is only worried about Strong and Ciampa.

Jay Lethal beat Chris Silvio

Prince Nana & RD Evans made their way to ringside towatch the action during the course of the match and were eventually joined byTruth Martini as well.

With Lethal in control, Tommaso Ciampa made his way toringside as well to watch the action in the ring. Lethal caught Silvio with handspringback elbow and then went up top for the big elbow but Silvio recovered. Lethalleapt over Silvio and then hit the Lethal Injection for the victory.

Truth Martini hyped up The Guardians of Truth and we alsogot The Briscoes comments on the GoT.  

We are told that the piledriver will be allowed during theSteen/Richards match.  Jim Cornette stated that Davey wants the piledriver allowed for the match because he doesnt wantSteen to have any excuses and because he is a man of honor. Steen wants thepiledriver legal because Steen wants any advantage. Jim says that the fans wantthe piledriver legal because they want anarchy and chaos. Corporate doesntwant the piledriver allowed because they dont want to be sued if someone getsparalyzed. Cornette says that the piledriver is legal.

No matter what happens, Steen will not be the Ring of Honorchampion when the affiliates meeting takes place in September. Cornette saysthat if Richards cannot do it, he will find someone who will.

Jimmy Jacobs said that Kyle and Davey want revenge ontelevision tonight. He says that the fans in Torontowere chanting You cant beat him because Davey cannot beat Steen.

Kevin Steen said that the same thing that happened in Torontowill happen later tonight. Davey will not win and he will let down Jim Cornetteagain. Kyle will not be able to do anything about it.

Steen said that he wishes he could defend this belt moreoften because Davey did not really defend the title that much. Steen says thatSunday is Daveys last shot at the Ring of Honor title so Davey must havepissed off Cornette. After months of matches where Cornette was trying to getrid of him, it did not work and he is the champion. He will retain the title atBest in the World.

We then went to the locker room where Veda Scott was withDavey Richards and Kyle OReilly. Kyle started to talk and Davey told Kyle toshut up. He says that he is sick of Kyle talking. They are not about talking.They are about doing. Davey tells Kyle to stand up and fight. He knows whattype of person Kyle is. He wants the Team Ambition Kyle OReilly.

The show began with a recap of last week where Eddie Edwardsdefeated Davey Richards while Eddie commented that he saw how Jacobs changedthe outcome of the match, and that he refuses to accept that victory thus ithas been ruled a no contest.

 

It jumped straight into the action as The Prodigy MikeBennett, with Maria and Brutal Bob at his side, took down Adam Page with theTKO.  After the match, Brutal Bob & Bennettlaid a beating on Page, which drew Eddie Edwards out to fend them off.  Bennett got on the microphone and told Edwardshes sticking his nose where it doesnt belong and that Edwards cant even beatBrutal Bob. So next week, its Edwards versus Brutal Bob one-on-one.

 

Kevin Steen then came to the ring with Jimmy Jacobs andSteve Corino.  Corino took themicrophone, told Jim Cornette that he needed to take a second to listen to whathis world champion had to say, then passed it over to Steen.  The World Champion said that next week he andJimmy will take on Kyle OReilly and Davey Richards.  Steen said he is still waiting to hearwhether or not the Package Piledriver will be legal at Best in the World 2012,adding that he wants a No DQ match for the Ring of Honor World Title. Steensaid when he takes Richards out, Cornette is going to realize its not aboutwho is the best in the world because its a hostage crisis.

 

The Briscoes were then in action against Sam Shaw and QTMarshall, dispatching the duo with the Doomsday Device on Shaw to pick up thewin. After the match, Truth Martini got on the microphone and told the Briscoethat the challenge has been made for Best in the World for the Briscoes toface the Guardians of Truth. He asked them if they accepted, and Jay says that theBriscoes will whoop their ass in New York City.

 

Veda Scott is in the back with Prince Nana and RD Evans.Evans says they advised Ciampa to pursue other ventures than the TV Title, butCiampa is still challenging for it.

 

Its now time for Inside ROH. Last weeks segment betweenWrestlings Greatest Tag Team and the All Night Express is recapped. Finlaysays he will find out what Michael Elgin is made of at Best in the World. JayLethal says hes going to use Strong and Ciampas dislike of each other to hisadvantage to become the new ROH World TV Champion. Davey Richards says he wantsrevenge on Steen. He tells OReilly he needs to think about redemption becausehes become a whiner.

 

Veda Scott is then joined backstage with Truth Martini andRoderick Strong. Strong says he was told he wouldnt have to wrestle TommasoCiampa. Martini tells Strong that the ixfay is in.

 

In the main event it was the ROH World TV Title Matchbetween champion Roderick Strong & Tommaso Ciampa with their respectiveorganizations at their side. Right off the bat things seemed odd as whileneither wrestler followed the Code of Honor and shook hands, Martini &Prince Nana did follow the code.

 

The match was an even fight but got very strange in the endas while Tommaso Ciampa was in control following a Wheelbarrow German Suplex,RD Evans distracted the referee which allowed Prince Nana gets in the ring.Nana got his by Roderick but the distraction was enough for Ciampa to hit theProject Ciampa. Then it got stranger as Nana got back in the ring and struck Strongwhile Ciampa had him pinned, effectively costing his man the TV Title as refereeTodd Sinclair had to disqualify Ciampa.

Last weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


It was a Road Rage edition this week on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV and featured the main event of Border Wars where Davey Richards defended the ROH World Title against Kevin Steen.


Prior to the start of the title bout, we got an in-depth recap of the ROH World Tag Title/Fight Without Honor between Jay & Mark Briscoe and Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin.


We also got a recap of the build up to the match between Richards and Steen including comments from Eddie Edwards.  Edwards says Richards is at his strongest with his back against the wall. He says Steen winning the title would be bad for everybody and hes rooting for Richards.


Davey Richards says after all the battles it all comes down to this match. They may be in Canada, but theyre in Richards ring.


Kevin Steen says he chose to be a pro wrestler on his own terms, and that its irked some people along the way. The person its bothered the most is Jim Cornette. After this match, theyre going to have to call him ROH World Champion.


The entire match must be seen as a recap can not do it justice, and it can be seen in its entirety at ROHWrestling.com by ordering the replay of Border Wars.  Suffice to say that Wrestling Worst Nightmare Kevin Steen was crowned the new ROH World Champion


This weekend on Ring Of Honor Wrestling TV


- The first In-Ring Interview with the NEW ROH World Champion Kevin Steen with Jimmy Jacobs and Steve Corino by his side.


- The All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) battle Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander in a first time meeting.


- Adam Cole goes one-on-one with No Fear Mike Mondo


- The Dominant Male Tommaso Ciampa with The Embassy LTD will be in action!


- Plus all of the fallout from Border Wars and lots of information regarding Best In The World 2012


News & Rumors


- ROH World Champion Kevin Steen has sent word that ROH is in for a huge shake up now that he is Champion and anything can happen at the live events. ROH officials are fully aware of what Steen is capable of and are prepared for anything.


- Jim Cornette and ROH officials are lining up matches throughout the summer to make sure that all of the top contenders in ROH get a shot at the ROH World Championship. The goal right now is to do everything within reason to make sure Kevin Steens ROH World Championship reign is as short as possible.


- Due to the actions in the month of May by Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team, effectively immediately, and for the duration in which Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin hold the ROH World Tag Team Championship, the titles can, and will, change hands on a disqualification in championship matches. This ruling is being made in order to encourage WGTT to show honor and dignity during matches, and being champions, represent ROH with a certain level of integrity. As unfortunate as it would be for the titles to change hands on a disqualification, we find it would be even more unfortunate if Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin continue to display behavior that displeases everyone from the fans to the officials to the wrestlers.


- Truth Martini has informed ROH officials that his hired mercenary Rhino will be employed with the House of Truth throughout the summer in ROH including upcoming events in Baltimore, Pittsburgh, and Milwaukee.


- Speaking of the above, something is definitely going on between The House of Truth and The Embassy LTD that goes beyond the public transaction involving the House acquiring Rhino from The Embassy a few months ago.


- "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett and Maria Kanellis have promised a Live Prodigy Service Announcement (PSA) at "Best In The World 2012" in NYC on June 24th.

Last weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


The All Night Express & The Young Bucks look to settle their issues in the main event while Mike Bennett & Eddie Edwards look to do the same in the opener!


The Prodigy says hes going to make sure Edwards never touches Maria again while Eddie says hes going to get even for what happened in the March Mayhem tournament.


Eddie Edwards vs. Mike Bennett w/ Brutal Bob & Maria


The match started with a bit of a feeling out process but eventually ended up on the outside of the ring where Bennett hit a Russian leg sweep into the barricade.  Back in the ring Edwards fought his way back into control despite repeated attempts at interference from Brutal Bob and picked up the win with a quick rollup.  Still, the number came into play as after the match, Maria distracted Edwards so Bennett & Brutal Bob could beat down Eddie.


Next up Grizzly Redwood was scheduled to for a match but before the bout could begin the House of Truth made their way to the ring. Truth Martini offered Redwood and his opponent $1000 to team up to wrestle Michael Elgin which they agree to.  Elgin quickly dispatched Redwoods partner, leaving him alone against Unbreakable, but Jay Lethal came to the aid of Griz against the HoT.


Redwood made a tag to Lethal who went house of fire on Elgin until a distraction by Strong left him open to get hit by an Elgin spinning backfist. Unfortunately for Elgin though, Strong blatantly attacked Lethal which drew a DQ from the official and gave the victory to Lethal & Redwood.  Following the end, Strong & Elgin had words which gave Lethal an opportunity to hit Roderick with the Lethal Injection for a measure of revenge.


This weeks Inside ROH highlighted the bad blood between The Young Bucks and The All Night Express as they prepared for the match later.


The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) vs. The All Night Express (Rhett Titus and Kenny King)


Titus and King immediately took the fights to the Jacksons while the ring announcements were still being made but Matt & Nick quickly fought back and began to double team Titus. Eventually Rhett managed to tag Kenny into the bout but it all ended up with a pair of superkicks on King that eliminated him from the bout, leaving Titus all alone.


With Kenny eliminated, The Young Bucks focused their attack on Titus surgically-repaired knee but some miscommunication from the Young Bucks allowed Titus to hit a Northern Lights Suplex on Matt Jackson, still the numbers advantage allowed Nick to break up the pin attempt. The Bucks went for for More Bang for Your Buck, looking to finish off Rhett, but Titus rolled up Matt Jackson to eliminate him.


Kenny King came back to ringside to cheer on his teammate which came in handy when Matt Jackson tried to come back and get involved. Kenny took him out of the picture while Rhett delivered a huge DDT to Nick to eliminate him and get the win for his team!

Last week on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


In the main event, Rhino challenged ROH World Champion Davey Richards in a Proving Ground match but before that there was plenty of action!


Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin beat D-Line in tag team action before CHIKARA Trios Action got underway and Ultramantis Black joined Kevin Kelly and Nigel McGuinness in the announce booth.


El Hijo de Ice Cream, Ice Cream Junior, and Ophidian lost to The Colony (Fire Ant, Green Ant, and Soldier Ant) in a hotly contested match that was certainly different than anything else seen in Ring of Honor!


Ricky Reyes fought former ROH World TV Champion Jay Lethal, but it was the Lethal Injection that was the decision maker here and got Lethal the victory.


Veda Scott interviewed Davey Richards about the match with Rhino later. Davey mentioned the seventy thousand dollars that was offered to take him out but noted how Truth already has someone in his camp who is unbreakable, then said it would be hard to gore someone when your ankle is broken.


This weeks edition of Inside ROH covered the growing issue between Eddie Edwards & Mike Bennett stemming from the March Mayhem Tournament.  The rematch goes down next week.


Next week we will also see the All Night Express against the Young Bucks in an elimination bout.


Veda Scott was then with Rhino & Truth Martini. Truth tells Rhino that money talks and Rhino gores, then Davey Richards dies. Rhino says that he will rip Davey in half with a GORE.


ROH World Champion Davey Richards pinned Rhino in the Proving Ground Match main event with a sunset flip, but immediately following the bell, Roderick Strong attacked Richards and Rhino joined in. ROH officials came to ringside to stop it, but it was Jay Lethal who hit the ring to take care of Roderick Strong and Rhino. The HoT duo bailed leaving Richards and Lethal standing together in the ring.


This week on "Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


The All Night Express settle their feud against The Young Bucks in an elimination match!


The Prodigy Mike Bennett with Maria Kanellis & Brutal Bob faces Die Hard Eddie Edwards!

News & Rumors


- Kevin Steen is unfortunately the new ROH World Champion after defeating Davey Richards last Saturday at Border Wars in Toronto.


- Border Wars will go down as one of the greatest Ring of Honor events of all time!


- Steve Corino shocked everyone by embracing Kevin Steen after his World Title win last Saturday at Border Wars. Everyone is waiting to hear what Steve Corino has to say about what happened in Toronto. We expect Steve to speak out on the situation this Friday in Baltimore at the Du Burns Arena.


- There will be a special match taped for the INTERNET ONLY this Friday in Baltimore at the Du Burns Arena to determine a challenger for the World Title on 6/30 in Pittsburgh, PA. 4 men will be selected out of 8 in a random drawing to compete in a 4-Way elimination to determine who will get a shot at the ROH World Championship in Pittsburgh!


- The Dominant Male Tommaso Ciampa suffered his first loss last Saturday since entering ROH over a year and a half ago. Jay Lethal gained retribution on Ciampa for costing him the TV Title by taking Ciampas undefeated streak away from him. Ciampa immediately left the Ted Reeve Arena in a rage after the bout last Saturday and has yet to be heard from by The Embassy or anyone else from ROH. Despite Ciampas unstable attitude, it is a true testament to his ability that he was able to remain undefeated for so long in such a vast pool of competition.

Last Weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


Its Kevin Steen vs. Kyle OReilly in the main event, one week before Kevins ROH World Title match at Border Wars against Kyles friend & mentor Davey Richards!


Before we got to that though, it was The Dominant Male Tommaso Ciampa versus Matt Taven in the opening contest of the evening!  With Jay Lethal watching at ringside, Ciampa picked up the victory following a series of running knees to the head & Project Ciampa to Taven.  Words were exchanged between Lethal & Ciampa but not physicality between the Border Wars opponents went down


Veda Scott was in the locker room with TJ Perkins but his interview was interrupted by The Young Bucks who wondered why Veda wasnt interviewing them. Words were exchanged there as well but Perkins left for his scheduled match against Mike Mondo before it got more heated.


The Mondo/Perkins contest was quite even until The Young Bucks made their way to ringside, repeatedly causing a distraction that ultimately led to TJ getting caught by Mondo and drilled with an elevated DDT that got No Fear the win!  The Bucks & Mondo began to assault Perkins but the All Night Express hit the ring to even the odds.


It was time to go Inside ROH once again as we are on the eve of Border Wars.


We got comments from the challengers for the World Tag Team Titles, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin as they prepare for their final shot at the titles. Jay Briscoe then commented as well, saying that they have been through a war and they might have started it, but in Florida, Haas and Benjamin crossed the line. Jay says that they are going to cross the line in Canada.


Truth Martini discusses the three matches involving the House of Truth next weekend.


Roderick tells Finlay that he hears that he likes to fight. On May 12th, he will be in store for the biggest fight of his life.


Michael Elgin tells Adam Cole he walks into Toronto in a dream land of his. On May 12th, Cole gets a dose of reality when he faces the only man who is the true breakout star of 2012.


Rhino tells Eddie Edwards that he is a former Heavyweight Champion and so is he. Rhino says that he gets paid to take people out and he will do it in Toronto. Eddie Edwards says that he has done his talking and it is about what will happen in the ring. It will be about who will take the most and get up to fight back. He will not be stopped and he is going to get the World Title again.


Mike Bennett tells Maria that it makes him really sad that Lance didnt get the picture in Fort Lauderdale. Lance begged for another match against him. He doesnt like that Lance wants it in his home country. Mike wants to be serious for a minute. He says that Lances Ring of Honor career came close to an end in Fort Lauderdale. It will definitely end in Toronto.


Veda Scott returned, this time in the locker room with Kyle OReilly, and he addressed his match with Steen in the main event, saying he will expose Steen for the fraud that he is and everyone will wake up from Wrestlings Greatest Daydream.


Steve Corino joined Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness at the announce table for the main event as Jimmy Jacobs joined Kevin Steen at ringside while Kyle OReilly stood alone.  


In a battle of power vs. speed, force vs. technique, Steen & OReilly battled it out but it came down to Steen nailing the GTH to get the win over Kyle! After the match, Steen attacked Kyle with a tennis racket and then, with Jacobs taunting him, Kyle was placed in the ankle lock by Kevin.


This brought out Davey Richards as he fought Jacobs & Steen both, but a low blow from Jimmy cut off that rally.  Steen took the tennis racket to Richards with the tennis racket and then once more to Kyle before security removed them. After Davey recovered, he took the microphone and told Steen there is one thing he will never do, take Daveys Ring of Honor title from him. Not only will he kick Steens ass and bury him in Toronto, he will show Steen what it is like to be helpless. He tells Kevin that his days of pretending to be an athlete or a professional wrestler are quickly coming to an end. Davey then says his American Strong Style thing is dead, and if Steen wants the Wolf, hes got the Wolf and he is hunting Steen.

First up it was the team of Cedric Alexander & CapriceColeman stepping onto The Proving Ground against ROH World Tag Team ChampionsJay & Mark Briscoe in an attempt to earn a future tag title match.

The younger duo fought their hearts out but it was theinterference of Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin that proved the decidingfactor as a low blow was delivered behind the referees back. Coleman &Alexander capitalized on the interference and defeated the Briscoes to earn afuture ROH World Tag Team title shot.

Truth Martini, Prince Nana and RD Evans revealed thatMartini purchased a mercenary in the form of Rhino to take out everyone intitle contention. Rhino says at Border Wars Eddie Edwards will die a slowpainful death.

In Inside ROH this week, they cover Wrestlings GreatestTag Team and the Briscoes Fight Without Honor at Border Wars, and its thefinal time the two teams will wrestle for the titles.

Jay Lethal says Tommaso Ciampa cost him the ROH World TVTitle, so Lethal is going to cost Ciampa his undefeated streak in Toronto.

Eddie Edwards says he knows what Rhino is capable of, butits going to take Rhino killing him to beat him because he will keep gettingright back up.

In the main event, the World TV Title was on the line asRoderick Strong made his first defense since capturing the title at Showdownin the Sun " Day 2; his challenger " Adam Cole.

In typical fashion, it was the interference of Truth Martini& Michael Elgin that made all the difference as a distraction provided byElgin allowed Martini to hit Cole with the Book of Truth, opening him up forRoderick to get the win & retain the TV Title.

Last Weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV


Its Road Rage once more as we hit Ft. Lauderdale for highlights from Showdown in the Sun " Day 2on March 31st!


First up, the ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay & Mark Briscoe defended their belts against Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin!  It was the typical hard-fought affair between the four men that was every bit the brawl you would expect.  It was fought just as much outside the ring as it was inside, but once everything got under control, it was the brothers who captured the victory in this rivalry.  Despite the loss, WGTT wasnt done as they assaulted both men after the conclusion of the bout, laying Mark out on the floor, and using the corner post to abuse the groin of Jay.


Next up was a match between CHIKARAs Fire Ant & Technical Lightning TJ Perkins that saw masked man give it all he had but it wasnt enough as a 450 Splash from Perkins gave him the win after a good back-and-forth battle.


Inside ROH gave us comments from Kevin Steen & Davey Richards as they prepare to lock-up at Border Wars on May 12th as well as word with Lance Storm about his rematch with The Prodigy Mike Bennett that night as well.


In the main event of the night, Jay Lethal was conned by Tommaso Ciampa into putting his ROH World TV Title on the line against Roderick Strong.  Lethal had the match in his pocket but interference from Ciampa on the floor left the champion open for attack, and Strong took advantage to pick up the win, and become the new TV Champion; a victory that also marks him as the 2nd man to win the ROH Triple Crown!



This weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

Last weekend on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

It was Road Rage this week on Ring of Honor Wrestling as a portion ofthe Showdown in the Sun " Day 1 event was presented!

First up, the highly anticipated return of Lane Storm as he took on TheProdigy Mike Bennett! It was every bit the back-and-forth wrestling battle onewould expect but it was the youth of Bennett that won out in the end as hefinished of the Canadian Icon with a TKO to pick up the victory!  After the bout a handshake was offered butBennett used that as an opportunity to disrespect & lay out Storm onceagain.  Following the bout, comments werecaptured from Storm in which he challenged Bennett to meet him one more time

 

Highlights from the Proving Ground match between ROH World Tag TeamChampions Jay & Mark Briscoe and Shane Haste & Mikey Nicholls wereshown.  While Haste & Nicholls werequite impressive in their outing, they couldnt muster up enough to put downthe 7-Time Tag Team Champions and earn a future title opportunity.

 

It was announced that at Border Wars on 5/12 in Toronto thehighly-respected Fit Finlay will his debut in Ring of Honor to face RoderickStrong, The Briscoes will face Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin in a FightWithout Honor for the World Tag Titles and that Die Hard Eddie Edwards wouldtake on Rhino.

 

In our main event, it was La Revancha as Kevin Steen & El Generico went to war in a Last Man Standing match. These two bitter rivals pulled out all the stops, and all the weapons they could find, in order to put the other man down for a ten count but the deciding factor came when Jimmy Jacobs got involved.  Jacobs took a chair from Steen, leaving him open to get dropped on his head by Generico, but then Jimmy shocked the world by pulling a railroad spike from his jacket and stabbing Generico!  This left The Generic Luchador open to get cracked across the skull with a chair, leaving him down for the ten-count as Steen & Jacobs celebrated together.

Last Week On Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

It was the finals of the March Mayhem tournament with $24,000 at stake for the winner but before we could get to that elimination bout there was other business to attend to, including a chaotic press conference for ROHs Border Wars event in Toronto scheduled for May 12th!

We kicked off with The Young Bucks taking on TJ Perkins & Shiloh Jonze in tag team action and although the Perkins/Jonze team put up a good fight, it was the veteran team of the Jackson brothers who picked up the victory.

Following that, Matt Taven & Mike Mondo went one-on-one in a bit of a grudge match stemming from previous weeks actions and it was Mondo who came out ahead following a Double-Arm DDT.

The usual edition of Inside ROH has been postponed in lieu of highlights from the Border Wars press conference held in Baltimore last week.  It started innocently enough, announcing the participation of Fit Finlay in the event and that all World Titles would be defended, but as ROH World Champion Davey Richards began to speak he was interrupted by Wrestlings Worst Nightmare Kevin Steen.  The scene began to degenerate quickly, leading to Richards essentially demanding that Jim Cornette make the highly-demanded ROH World Title match between he & Steen or he would turn over the belt & walk away.  In addition, Davey also demanded that the piledriver, which has been banned since Final Battle 2011, be reinstated for the match.  Backed into a corner, Cornette relented and made the match official for May 12th in Toronto, Canada!

It was now time for the March Mayhem Finals with Jay Lethal, Tommaso Ciampa, Adam Cole, and Mike Bennett squaring off in an elimination bout with $24,000 on the line. Bennett was the first person eliminated following a Lethal Injection from Jay, they Lethal was promptly eliminated by Ciampa via the Knockout Knee.  This left Cole & Ciampa to battle it out for the grand prize but it was the inadvertent distraction of Lethal that ultimately led to the conclusion, allowing Tommaso to hit The Project Ciampa for the win & the big check!

INSIDE RING OF HONOR 3/27/12 - 03/27/12

By: Christopher Maurer

We are one week away from Showdown in the Sun in Ft. Lauderdale and this weeks TV opened with a face-to-face-to-face confrontation between ROH World Champion Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, and Roderick Strong as they prepare to fight one another in a Triple Threat Elimination bout on March 30th.

 

During the course of the back and forth arguments, Roderick actually claimed that if Davey retained the belt, it would be okay because Michael Elgin would turn over his match with Davey to Roderick, essentially giving him a second chance at the belt. Before Elgin could retort, Jay Lethal made his way to ringside, pointing out the massive amounts of interference in his World Title match against Davey, and questioning the validity of Roderick getting an opportunity.  Jim Cornette, who was attempting to moderate the meeting of the World Championship bout, pointed out that if Roderick won the Triple Threat match, Lethal would get his chance.  It seemed a fight was destined to break out but the proceedings were once again interrupted by the arrival of Kevin Steen.

 

Steen mocks the entire proceeding, stating that one way or another he will become ROH World Champion and Kevin tells Jim that it is clever that he calls him Wrestlings Greatest Nightmare, but when he is Ring of Honor World Champion, he will be Jims personal never ending nightmare.

 

Following that war of words, it was time for Wrestlings Greatest Tag Team versus Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander.  Each team had pre-taped words for one another prior to the start of the bout and while the bout was quite competitive, just as WGTT seemed to have things all wrapped up, The Briscoes hit the ring and cracked Charlie Haas with a steel chair in the head, allowing Coleman to pick up the win.

 

Kevin Kelly presented a new edition of Inside ROH, first taking a look at the announcement of Kevin Steens opponent on March 30th, El Generico, then offering up comments from both Lance Storm & Mike Bennett as they head towards a meeting at Showdown in the Sun " Day 1 as well. 

 

As we return to action, Jim Cornette joins the announce team to inform everyone that a fine will be levied against The Briscoes for their actions and that on 3/30, WGTT will have a rematch with Coleman & Alexander.

 

In the main event, a first round March Mayhem match, Adam Cole & Michael Elgin went one-on-one.  It was the power of Elgin against the speed of Cole but the deciding factor came when Truth Martini & Strong elected to get involved in the bout to help their man.  Strong grabbed Cole, Martini distracted the referee, but Rodericks attempt at hitting Cole with an enziguiri struck Elgin instead, allowing Adam to pick up the victory.  The HoT immediately attacked Cole, which drew Edwards out to the ring, and a brawl erupted as the show came to a close.

 

This week on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

 

March Mayhem continues with two Qualifying matches pitting "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards against fellow Bostonian, "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett and The Dominant Male Tommaso Ciampa, with The Embassy in his corner, faces Kyle OReilly!  The winner of each bout advances to the Final 4-Way against Adam Cole and Jay Lethal who have already advanced, and at stake a $24,000 prize!

Last week on Ring of Honor Wrestling TV

 

March Mayhem got underway in ROH this past weekend as 8 individuals are pitted against each other in a tournament with a $24,000 prize at stake! The men involved are Jay Lethal, Roderick Strong, Michael Elgin, Adam Cole, Tommaso Ciampa, Kyle OReilly, Mike Bennett, & Eddie Edwards. One contest will go down tonight, but before we got there, Adam Cole was in action against Chris Silvio. 

 

Silvio put up a good fight but it was Adam Cole who picked up the victory with his Wrist Clutch German Suplex.  That victory drew Coles former Future Shock partner out to the ring to issue a challenge for Showdown in the Sun- Day 2 on March 31st, Cole versus OReilly one-on-one, and Adam was all to happy to accept.

 

Wrestlings Worst
