Ring Of Honor Announces Updated Card For Boston
Written by Luke Parks on Apr 8, 2008 - 3:36:57 PM
- From ROHWrestling.com:
We regret to report that Austin Aries suffered a head injury and will not be able to compete this weekend. We encourage Aries to rest until he is 100% ready to return. We apologize for the lineup change and thank you for your understanding.
Aries was the glue of the schedule main event Four Corner Elimination Match since he had issues with Nigel McGuinness, Roderick Strong and Erick Stevens. Without Aries, ROH officials have decided to change the match, which will have a trickle down effect on the rest of the card. ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness will now defend the belt in a singles match. He will take on the winner of a Four Corner Survival earlier in the card.
The Four Corner Survival promises to be very interesting. No Remorse Corps teammates Roderick Strong and Rocky Romero will both be in the match. What will happen when NRC members are pitted against each other with a shot at the World Title on the line? There can only be one winner. In addition, NRC's top nemesis Erick Stevens will be in the bout. The sleeper pick is El Generico, who has proven he is capable of defeating anyone on any given night.
You will still see an elimination match in Boston. Last time in Boston, Claudio Castagnoli tried to get his hands on Larry Sweeney. Now a match originally scheduled for Edison, NJ will take place in Boston. It will be Castagnoli, Delirious & Pelle Primeau vs. Chris Hero, Brent Albright & Larry Sweeney in an Elimination Match. Claudio hopes to get Sweeney alone in this one.
Kevin Steen and The Necro Butcher fought in a violent brawl last time in Boston. They were originally scheduled to collide this Friday in a Last Man Standing Match. Now they want to get even more violent. You will still see Steen vs. Necro in Beantown, but it will be a Boston Massacre Match. ROH hasn't seen a Boston Massacre Match since 2002 and that one included barbed wire boards. There are no rules and anything is legal. This one is going to be insane.
Here is the new lineup for this Friday in Boston at the beautiful and conveniently located Case Gym on Boston University's campus. Get tickets for 25% off until Thursday morning at ROHwrestling.com. You can get tickets for as low as $7.50 as part of the sale if you act by this Thursday at ROHwrestling.com. Every seat is a good one in the Case Gym and you can witness this show for only $7.50!!!
