On May 11th, Ring of Honor heads back to the Rostraver Ice Gardens in Belle Vernon, PA for a big live event DVD taping and ROHWrestling.com has just been informed of several big match-ups signed to take place!
First up, in a rematch of the finals of the 2013 Top Prospect Tournament Tadarius Thomas will go one-on-one with current World TV Champion Matt Taven! If Taven makes it out of "Border Wars 2013" weekend as champion, then this rematch will also be held under Proving Ground rules! That means TD just needs to defeat Taven, or last the time limit, and he will earn himself a future TV Title opportunity! One has to assume Thomas is now going to be rooting for Taven in Canada for a number of reasons: (1) revenge for his TPT defeat, (2) to get the Proving Ground match, and (3) history because Taven has already dropped the ball in one Proving Ground contest when ACH beat him to earn a chance. You can bet the eyes of Thomas will be most certainly be firmly locked on the Taven/Briscoe TV Title match on May 4th.
Next, it seems that after only a pair of matches as a team and their 1-1 win/loss record, RD Evans has petitioned for a World Tag Team Title shot for himself & QT Marshall. Match Maker Nigel McGuinness balked at this request, stating that RD & QT had proved absolutely nothing as a team but he would give them the opportunity to do so in Pittsburgh. So, on May 11th, "God's Gift" and The Barrister will have to face one of the toughest teams in ROH history: The American Wolves!!! Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards, coming off a disappointing title loss at "Supercard of Honor VII", are eager to get back to dominating the competition and earn themselves a title rematch. RD & QT best be afraid...
And in a rematch of their February 16th collision on ROH TV, Jay Lethal and Jimmy Jacobs will lock horns in a battle of ROH vs. S.C.U.M! Last time out, Lethal won but, if not for Kevin Steen, would have paid the price with a Gore following the match. Will Lethal be successful once again or will he be too concerned with having look over his shoulder for S.C.U.M the entire time?
ALSO IN ACTION...
PLUS... Kevin Steen is signed to appear!
It's Ring of Honor's return to the Pittsburgh area on May 11th and tickets are on-sale right here in the ROH Store!
