Ring of Honor heads to Richmond, VA on May 18th for a big DVD taping featuring BJ Whitmer challenging Jay Briscoe for the ROH World Title, Kevin Steen continuing his quest to demolish S.C.U.M when he takes on Jimmy Jacobs, a big 6-Man Tag Team match with Matt Taven & reDRagon taking on Jay Lethal & C&C Wrestle Factory, and now two more matches have been signed!
First up, they were two of the victims of S.C.U.M's declaration of war at the "11th Anniversary Event", and now Eddie Edwards and Davey Richards will get their chance at revenge in Richmond when The American Wolves face two members of S.C.U.M in tag team action!
"The fact that I feel some responsibility in all of this will never change." said Davey Richards to ROHWrestling.com, "I lost the belt to Kevin, I dropped the ball in our rematch, I still feel like I opened the door for S.C.U.M last year. What Corino has done with it since Chicago though, that is something else entirely and me and Eddie, well the way I look at it, we still owe them all for the beating we took that night. So Steve, come May 18th, it is payback and The Wolves don't give a damn if it's Rhett Titus, Rhino, Matt Hardy, or some other sucker you find to buy your crap, we will dominate whichever of your minions you send out. See you might notice a theme here Steve because we certainly do...every night you refuse to name which SCUM members will fight but the truth Steve, the truth is that no one on the Ring of Honor side actually gives a damn who they fight because ALL of you are marked men and all of SCUM will be broken."
Then, coming off a TV Title loss at "Border Wars 2013" but perhaps coming into Richmond a newly crowned World Tag Team Champion after Belle Vernon this Saturday, for the very first time Mark Briscoe will take on Roderick Strong in singles competition! It is shocking that despite each man's lengthy tenure in Ring of Honor, they have never met in a one-on-one situation...
"Mark, bro, not to steal someone else's line but sorry about your damn luck." said Roderick Strong, "I mean you've seen the beatings I've put on Jay every time we fight. I left him laying in his own blood when he came after my title if you remember, and now it's going to be me and you going toe-to-toe. Mark I hate to tell you this but if Jay can't hang with me, what makes you think you've got a chance bro? Mister ROH right here...to hell with your day one founding father crap, ROH is the house I built Mark and when this match is all done, everyone will say 'damn, he was right, it was only Roderick Strong who survived'. See you in Richmond Chicken."
In addition to those two new matches, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin will also be in action on May 18th in Richmond! Tickets for our return to Virgina are available now in the ROH Store!
