Ring of Honor has always been extremely fan-friendly, and now the company is giving its audience an opportunity to get up close and personal with its stars and be directly involved in a live event unlike any other in ROH history.
At “The Experience” on Sunday, Feb. 12, fans in attendance at Express Live in Columbus, Ohio, will vote via text message to determine which three competitors from a group of 10 candidates will challenge ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) in the main event.
It’s the first time ever that ROH fans will have the say over who participates in a championship main event. Yes, there’s a distinct possibility that a trio put together by the fans walks out of Columbus as the new six-man tag team champions!
The interactive “Experience” doesn’t end there. Before the show, there will be an enhanced meet-and-greet session with double the number of ROH stars featured at typical autograph sessions.
In addition, there will be Q&A opportunities with ROH talent throughout the night, and fans can win prizes for answering trivia questions with Larry Legend and Mandy Leon. Plus, one lucky fan will be selected to announce a match with ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni!
“The Experience is our thank you to the best wrestling fans on the planet,” ROH Chief Operating Officer Joe Koff said.
Recently, fans voted online to choose the stipulations for two matches at “The Experience.” A Proving Ground match between ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll and 2016 Top Prospect Tournament winner Lio Rush will be a two-out-of-three bout, and the tag team match pitting ROH World Champion Adam Cole and Hangman Page of Bullet Club against Jay Lethal and Bobby Fish will be contested under Falls Count Anywhere rules.
