On Saturday April 5th, Ring of Honor presents a huge afternoon of the best wrestling on the planet as part of Supercard of Honor weekend! This event featuring all of your favorite ROH stars will be taped for television. We can now confirm some of the matches scheduled for New Orleans:
Adam Cole/Matt Hardy/Michael Bennett w/ Maria vs. Kevin Steen/Jay & Mark Briscoe - SIX MAN WAR!
The newly forged alliance of current ROH World Champion Adam Cole, his mentor Matt Hardy, and Michael Bennett is all about power and influence. They - along with Maria Kanellis - believe they are far above not just the fans, but the rest of the ROH locker room as well. They deserve adulation and esteem. And it's hard to argue against that while Cole holds the World Title.
But on the other side of this gigantic six man war is a trio who might not be as "aesthetically pleasing" as their opponents - but that hasn't stopped them from capturing ROH World and Tag Team gold. The Briscoes and Kevin Steen are the elite of Ring of Honor.
Did we forget to mention that Adam Cole and Jay Briscoe come into this Six Man War after brutalizing themselves in a LADDER WAR the night before...? On top of that, Mark Briscoe and Michael Bennett will have just competed in a No DQ match of their own. Finally, Kevin Steen has never needed a warm up for his personal brand of violence. Tempers will be hotter than ever on April 5th. This is going to be a WAR!
Rocky Romero vs. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin
After competing in a number one contenders tag team triple threat the night before, Forever Hooligans will see singles action on April 5th. First up: Rocky Romero vs. "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin! Elgin will be coming off a huge number one contenders match himself and potentially in line for an IWGP title shot. Both of these athletes will want to keep that momentum going as the weekend rolls on!
Alex Koslov vs. Jay Lethal
Also scheduled for singles action in New Orleans is the other half of Forever Hooligans, Alex Koslov! Will Jay Lethal be ROH World Television Champion by this time? He faces Tommaso Ciampa for the belt at Supercard of Honor VIII the night before. This is a rare opportunity to see Alex Koslov in ROH singles competition and he'll be looking to make an impact on that front for sure!
BJ Whitmer vs. Cedric Alexander
Cedric Alexander has spent recent weeks fending off The Decade and at Supercard of Honor he finally gets the chance to go one-on-one with his biggest detractor, Roderick Strong. But the very next day, Cedric has another Decade member lined up - BJ Whitmer. Whitmer and his fellow veterans insist young stars like Cedric Alexander need to be taught humbleness and respect. And he's definitely going to relish the opportunity to teach that lesson on the biggest wrestling weekend of he year! But Cedric Alexander is on a tear of show stealing, impressive singles matches - maybe he'll teach BJ Whitmer a few things himself.
Tommaso Ciampa vs. Roderick Strong
Roderick Strong has done it all in Ring of Honor as a Triple Crown champion and cornerstone of the company. And recently he's made it known that wrestlers of his caliber should be given proper respect by the younger, newer stars competing for ROH spots. On Saturday, he will face an athlete on the rise in Tommaso Ciampa - a man who seems less concerned with etiquette than he is with destruction. Ciampa is currently the TV Title holder and depending on the outcome of Friday's match with Jay Lethal, Roderick Strong is stepping into the ring with either a champion...or a psychopath looking for revenge.
Andrew Everett vs. ACH
This is a much requested "dream match" between two of the most exciting young high fliers in all of professional wrestling! You can expect to be amazed by the athleticism of Andrew Everett and ACH on any occasion, but this is the biggest wrestling weekend of the year and everyone is going the extra mile. This will be one of the most exciting matches in New Orleans!
