Two new matches have been set for ‘Best In The World 2012’ which will emanate from the Hammerstein Ballroom on Sunday, June 24.
Both of these matches were set at last night’s TV tapings in Baltimore (for results go here).
Firstly, Davey Richards will get his rematch against Kevin Steen for the ROH World Championship. Richards had his reign ended just before his year anniversary as Steen defeated him at ‘Border Wars’ in his home country of Canada.
However, ‘The American Wolf’ asked for a shot to get his belt back and will receive the opportunity in New York City. This will be his ONLY shot at the World Title – much like it was for Steen. Steen also lobbied for the match to be a No DQ match but there’s no word if that has been made official yet.
In the other match, Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team will likely defend their newly acquired ROH World Tag Team Titles. Haas & Benjamin won the belts at ‘Border Wars’ in a Fight Without Honor. The All Night Express challenged WGTT to a match for the straps and while they have yet to respond, it looks nailed on that this match will happen.
ANX still have their guaranteed title shot available after defeated The Briscoes in the Proving Ground on ROH TV and are looking to win their first ever ROH World Tag Team Titles.
Those two matches, along with Fit Finlay versus Michael Elgin currently make up the card and you can expect more matches to be announced for BITW 12 in the coming weeks.
