You will witness the most anticipated ROH World Title match in recent memory between Davey Richards & Kevin Steen and announced over the weekend on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV, it will be the battle of the fastest rising stars in Ring of Honor as Adam Cole faces “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and Jay Lethal will face the unbeaten “Dominant Male” Tommaso Ciampa in a Grudge Match!

- Speaking of “Border Wars”, ROH officials have finalized details on a Meet & Greet prior to the event on May 12th! This is your chance to meet some of the stars of ROH up close & personal, and get an autographed 8x10 to boot! Taking place in the Meet & Greet will be “Belfast Bruiser” Fit Finlay, Lance Storm, ROH World Tag Team Champions Mark & Jay Briscoe, Jay Lethal, and “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin!

- Davey Richards’ ribs were severely injured in a brawl with Kevin Steen and Jimmy Jacobs last Sunday in Dayton, Ohio. After an uncalled for interruption to the O’Reilly vs. El Generico bout by Steen and Jacobs, Davey ran to the ring with a mission to destroy Steen and Jacobs but found himself on the receiving end of GTH onto a chair. Later in the night, Richards went into his World Title defense against Adam Cole less than 100% and aggravated his ribs even more during the bout. As of today, Richards is still extremely sore but is expected to have a full recovery by “Border Wars” on May 12th.

- Rhett Titus and Kenny King, collectively known as The All Night Express are very frustrated as seen in the above video from Dayton last Sunday. Later that night in Dayton, Titus and King made their way to ringside to get a closer view of the Briscoe’s vs. Haas & Benjamin title match and a brawl broke out between all of the teams leaving the animosity at an all time high. ANX are ready for their ROH Tag Team Title shot that they earned months ago and they have let the world know it. The knee injury that Titus suffered last December at “Final Battle 2011” set the team back a couple of months but now Titus is 100% and he and Kenny’s sight is set on the gold and doing whatever it takes to attain it.

- There is still unfinished business between CHIKARA Grand Champion Eddie Kingston and “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare” Kevin Steen. Last Saturday during CHIKARA’s afternoon event “Hot off the Griddle”, Steen and Kingston went to war with one another but when the heat was turned up on Steen, he hit Kingston with a low blow resulting in an automatic disqualification. Steen managed to disrespect his opponent, the Grand Championship, the company, and the fans of CHIKARA all at once.

- BJ Whitmer looked very good over the weekend and despite a tainted loss to Kevin Steen on Sunday, he is expected to compete in ROH more often in the future.

- On Friday, May 18th, Ring of Honor Wrestling returns to Baltimore, MD at The Du Burns Arena where we will tape 4 more exciting episodes of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV for our SBG affiliates nationwide!
