The last time we were in Virginia for “ROH Underground”, Eddie Edwards and Mike Bennett were scheduled to lock-up but due to a staph infection suffered by “Die Hard” that match was unable to take place. The two grapplers eventually did compete as part of the March Mayhem tournament on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV, vying for a spot in the Four Way Finals with the $24,000 prize at stake. It was Bennett who got the victory in that meeting but not without some dubious behavior on the part of his girlfriend, Maria Kanellis, as well as Brutal Bob, that helped him pick up the victory.
Well now Edwards will have his chance to even the score as on May 19th, when we hit Richmond & The Greater Richmond Convention Center, “Die Hard” will meet “The Prodigy” once again!
“It’s not my fault that Eddie can’t accept defeat.” said Mike Bennett to ROHWrestling.com, “I beat him plain and simple in Baltimore and he can blame Maria all he wants, refuse to accept responsibility for his own losses, but the bottom line is that the better man, certainly the smarter guy, won that night. So you want to step into the ring with me once again? You want to go one-on-one with the guy who put down Lance Storm just a few weeks ago? The guy who is going to retire him at Border Wars? So be it Eddie, just don’t go blaming Maria when you choke again.”
It’s a possibility that Maria Kanellis could get play a factor in this one as she will be at the side of “The Prodigy” in Richmond so Edwards will have to have eyes in the back of his head that night. It’s “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards vs. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett on May 19th when ROH returns to Richmond! Get your tickets here!
