On July 27th Ring of Honor returns to Providence and the RI Convention Center for a round of “Ring of Honor” Wrestling TV Tapings! Highlighting this event will be THREE first round bouts in the World Title Tournament as well as a Proving Ground battle pitting the ROH World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish) against the current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) with a potential ROH World Tag Title match on the line!
Now ROHWrestling.com has been informed of two more match-ups signed for that evening including a huge 6-man tag!
First up, after the events on recent episodes of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV, Michael Bennett has parted ways with his long time trainer Brutal Bob and done so in violent fashion. Now, at the surprising request of Brutal Bob, Match Maker Nigel McGuinness has signed a bout for Providence pitting the former Prodigy against his former trainer!
Will Brutal Bob give Bennett a beating like he used to back in Mike's greener days or will it be Michael Bennett who shows that the student has surpassed the teacher? We will find out in Providence on the 27th and you can guarantee that Maria will be in the corner of her man that night!
We have also learned that McGuinness has signed a huge 6-Man Tag for that evening that he told ROHWrestling.com is “Honor Personified”! It will be “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, “The Sicilian Psychopath” Tommaso Ciampa, and Kevin Steen versus BJ Whitmer & The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards)!
“You may find it shocking that I would call this honor personified given that I selected Steen to participate.” said McGuinness to ROHWrestling.com, “But I believe in my heart, after watching Kevin closely since he lost the title to Jay Briscoe, and particularly with how he stood up for Ring of Honor in Steel Cage Warfare, I believe that he truly has rediscovered that honor he had some years ago before Steve Corino got into his ear. As for the others, well there is no argument that BJ, Elgin, and The Wolves stood for honor throughout the battles with S.C.U.M and I have certainly seen Ciampa, since he returned in Toronto, show that his path is an honorable one which he hopes leads to the World Title. These 6-man represent the best elements ROH has to offer and in Providence they will no doubt show why we are the best pro wrestling on the planet!”
In addition, C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander), MsChif, and World TV Champion Matt Taven with Truth Martini will be in action! Plus ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness will be in the house!!
