THE SIDEWALK SLAM - VOLUME 1, ISSUE 12
I write this blog fresh off of what was an awesome event this past Saturday night in Charlotte at the Metrolina Tradeshow Expo. This event was dubbed “Caged Hostility” and proved to be just that and much more! What a great crowd Charlotte brought on Saturday night as well, certainly sets the bar high for next weekend's "Death Before Dishonor" iPPV in Chicago. Show us what you got Chicago...
Some of the highlights from Saturday night's “Caged Hostility” event saw the return of Shelton Benjamin who joined his tag partner Charlie Haas to edge out the team of Roderick Strong and Michael Elgin. It's great to see the "World's Greatest Tag Team" of Haas and Benjamin back together. In other action Kyle O'Reilly beat Adam Cole in a Proving Ground Match, which saw the return of the American Wolf Davey Richards, making an unannounced appearance. In the highly anticipated main event of the night, Rhett Titus along with The Briscoe Brothers, Mark and Jay defeated Kevin Steen and S.C.U.M. aka the team of Jimmy Jacobs and Steve Corino in a cage match.
On to new business, as I've mentioned next Saturday September 15, 2012 ROH returns to Chicago Ridge by way of the "Death Before Dishonor X" iPPV live from the Frontier Field House. Do yourself a favor and join us either in person or live on iPPV. Great seats are still available or you can watch the event live on your computer, iPhone, iPad or other supported mobile device. This night will once again prove why Chicago is the perfect setting for an event of this magnitude. In the main event, ROH World Champion Kevin Steen defends his title against "The Man Beast" Rhino. This match is Chicago tailored and built for what will be an intense crowd inside the Frontier Fieldhouse as well as watching at home or mobile on iPPV. Another title that will be defended Saturday will see the ROH World TV Champion Adam Cole take on "No Fear" Mike Mondo. Don't forget on this same night the NEW ROH World Tag Team Champions will be crowned! Who will it be?
