Ring of Honor this week gave fans the chance to watch the next four episodes of ROH TV using the ‘Early Bird’ access. Each episode is available to watch now for $1.99 and during the shows, several big matches were scheduled and look set for the ’11th Anniversay’ iPPV on Saturday, March 2 in Chicago Ridge, IL.
Jay Lethal versus Kevin Steen for the ROH World Title looks set to happen after Steen finally agreed to face the man with the killer instinct. Lethal won ‘Survival of the Fittest 2012’ but following the aftermath of the ‘Killer Instinct’ show in Rahway, NJ, Steen demanded that he would never face him again for the title. Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness said the only way Lethal would get his shot was by Steen agreeing to it. Lethal confronted Steen and said he isn’t a proper champion until he has defeated him and eventually Steen accepted. We should finally see the rematch in Chicago.
The Briscoes will defend the ROH World Tag Team titles against Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly. Fish & O’Reilly won a gauntlet match involving the newly reformed American Wolves, the Bravados and SCUM and it was announced that the winner of the gauntlet will get the next shot at the Briscoes which we believe will be at the Frontier Fieldhouse.
Former House of Truth members Michael Elgin and Roderick Strong will go at it again in a two out of three falls match. The pair met at ‘Final Battle 2012′ with Strong winning after an assist from the book of truth. Elgin will get his chance of revenge in Chicago in what should be a brilliant match.
Lastly, Adam Cole will defend his ROH Television title against the winner of the Top Prospect tournament. The semi-finals and final will be held at the next TV tapings in Baltimore on February 2. The four remaining men are QT Marshall, Tadarius Thomas, Silas Young and Matt Taven.
