In just over a week Ring of Honor hits the road again with a trip to the Pittsburgh area for our final “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV Taping of 2012. As announced all three titles will be on the line with the World Title Match between Steen & Bennett, the TV Title match between Cole & O'Reilly, and the Tag Title Match between SCUM and Titus/Whitmer. Also Roderick Strong takes on Tadarius Thomas and in a rematch of one of the best bouts of 2012, Davey Richards faces Michael Elgin! Now, in addition to those bouts, we've just been informed by ROH officials of several more additions to the event:
- Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander vs. Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin
Coming off a near-victory on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV in a World Tag Title match, as well as hard-fought win over The Bravados at “Glory by Honor XI”, Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander step into the ring with WGTT once more! These two teams have battled on a few occasions, including C&C picking up the victory back in March on TV and WGTT evening the score at “Showdown in the Sun – Day 1” but it is reasonable to say that both teams have changed since then...not necessarily for the better in the case of Haas & Benjamin. C&C almost defeated SCUM on ROH TV a few weeks ago and would indeed be the new World Tag Team Champions if not for Steve Corino getting disqualified for his use of a foreign object. They are a team right on the brink of greatness and they have never looked better.
WGTT on the other hand always seem to be just a breath away from a world of suspension and fines, especially Benjamin who has been handed two lengthy suspensions already this year. They are, as impossible as this seems, even angrier and more dangerous than they were 7 months ago and in light of Titus & Whitmer getting a title match in Pittsburgh over WGTT, one can only imagine how much worse the disposition of Haas & Benjamin will be.
- “God’s Gift” QT Marshall with RD Evans vs. Adam Page
As recently seen on ROH TV, Marshall has signed on with Barrister RD Evans after Evans dumped Tommaso Ciampa as a client due to his severe knee injury. The parting was far from mutual, Old Yeller-esque may be an accurate description for RD Evans' methods, and unfortunately due to the nature of his injury it may be quite some time before we see Ciampa get his shot at evening the score. For now, Evans has put that in his rear view mirror and set his focus on taking Marshall to the top of the heap. That road, sadly for Evans & Marshall, did not start with “Survival of the Fittest 2012” as they had hoped but it was “a minor pothole” according to Evans. He said the path begins now in Pittsburgh. Adam Page has impressed ROH officials and this young talent will make the drive up to the Rostraver Ice Gardens hoping to parlay this bout with Marshall into a full-time position on the ROH roster. Young, hungry, and driven, a victory over Marshall...another relatively fresh face on the ROH scene...would go a long way towards securing Adam Page that spot.
- MsChif vs. Allysin Kay
One of the most experienced, well-traveled, and decorated Women of Honor, MsChif makes her return to ROH competition to square off with one of the newest faces of women's wrestling, Allysin Kay. With four years of experience under her belt, the woman nicknamed “AK-47” is looking to make a huge impact in her ROH debut and what better way to do just that than by beating one of the most respected women in wrestling today.
In addition to those matches, Lancelot & Harlem Bravado Brothers have signed for tag action! Mike Mondo, broken foot and all, will be in the house! And on the heels of the much-talked about closing moments of “Glory by Honor XI”, the ROH World Champion Kevin Steen will address the issue of just what was in the box!
All that, plus a special opportunity for the first 300 fans thru the door to to have their picture taken with The Briscoes, Mike Mondo & Adam Cole, and you've got one heck of a final TV Taping of the year! Don't miss out on your chance to experience the best pound-for-pound wrestling on the planet live & in-person! Ticket are available here!
