Ring of Honor have announced that the upcoming show in Providence, RI named ‘Boiling Point 2012’ will now be streamed live on iPPV at ROHWrestling.com!
They have also revealed that in light of what happened on this week’s TV show, Kevin Steen will defend the ROH World Title in the main event against CHIKARA Grand Champion Eddie Kingston. After Steen had successfully defended his belt against Mike Mondo, Jimmy Jacobs hit the ring to attack ‘No Fear’ until Kingston made the save.
These two have history of course. At the ’10th Anniversary Show’, Kingston was cutting a promo when Steen interrupted him, disrespect CHIKARA and the men came to blows. Security managed to stop them that night but at CHIKARA’s ‘Hot Off The Griddle’ event as part of the Synergy co-promotion with ROH, Steen got his shot at Kingston’s title. With Steen set to lose after a Kingston spinning back fist, he low blowed his opponent and got DQ’d.
Fast forward a few months and these two men have crossed paths yet again and they will settle the score on August 11 when Kingston challenges for the ROH World Title.
Other matches already scheduled for the event include:
