ROH Wrestling sent out their latest Newswire today, which is posted below:
– The Du Burns Arena in Baltimore will be rocking once again on February 4th for our next set of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings! We are excited to bring the HUGE ROH World Title rematch between Davey Richards & Jay Lethal to The Charm City and it is guaranteed to be a classic! In addition, three big matches were announced yesterday, the first pitting “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, against the very man he eliminated to win “Survival of the Fittest 2011,” Kyle O’Reilly! The second, in a rematch of their “Northern Aggression” bout from 12/4, TJ Perkins will battle “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett. Finally, in another rematch from “Northern Aggression”, The Young Bucks will take on Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander in a Tag Team Challenge Match! Expect the best wrestling on the planet to blow away Baltimore once again and tickets for these “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Tapings are available here.
– Announced yesterday, Roderick Strong & Eddie Edwards will meet in a No Holds Barred Match on February 17th when ROH hits Cincinnati for the first time! This match was supposed to go down at “The Homecoming 2012” but a staph infection prevented Edwards from competing. These two former champs will now get their chance to tear into one another when we return to Ohio, and you can get your tickets now!
– Now available in a 2-Disc DVD Set, “Battle In The Carolinas”! Featuring the complete 8-Man Elimination Tag from “Northern Aggression”, the Honor Rumble for a World Title shot at “Southern Defiance”, El Generico vs. Eddie Edwards, and a whole lot more, you can get your copy now!
– “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare” Kevin Steen continues to make his awful presence felt since returning to in-ring action at “Final Battle 2011.” Steen continued his rampage last weekend in Philadelphia at “Homecoming 2012” when he attacked the already injured, Rhett Titus. After his bout with Kenny King, Steen continued to beat on King until the courageous Titus came in on one leg to save his partner. This eventually backfired and Steen attacked Titus’ knee. Unfortunately we have received word that Titus’ recovery process will take even longer now following the attack.
– In other Steen inflicted injury news; this weekend’s edition of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” will have an update on El Generico.
– Speaking of this week’s edition of “Ring of Honor Wrestling”, it premieres this Saturday and is loaded with great action including Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander facing ROH World Champion Davey Richards & his protégé Kyle O’Reilly! Tommaso Ciampa will be in action facing TJ Perkins and everyone’s favorite lumberjack, Grizzly Redwood, makes his broadcast television debut. To see if ROH airs in your area click here.
– The ROH World Champion continues to dominate not only in the ring but also in the gym. Davey Richards has applied his New Year’s resolution everyday to up his fighting game to combat with all of the potential challengers in 2012. We all know that Jay Lethal will get another shot on February 4th in Baltimore but “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin is also sitting on a title match to be determined. Also, former champions Roderick Strong and Eddie Edwards are looking to get the right win in order to put them back into contention, and it has also been clear that Kevin Steen’s number one goal is to get a shot at the most prestigious title in all of wrestling.
