Tonight Ring of Honor held their Boiling Point iPPV from Providence, Rhode Island. In the main event Kevin Steen defended his ROH World Title against Eddie Kingston. The match has draw rave reviews from fans who viewed the event live, and on ippv. However, after the show reports began to surface of an incident between ROH Champion Kevin Steen and a couple fans that were in attendance.
PWTorch attendee Sean Radican reported this:
“Afterward, Steen punched a kid right in the face and he bled from the mouth. Another kid also got knocked out. They were not plants. I was a foot away and one dude got knocked out and the second one got clocked, too. I didn’t see what the fans did to cause Steen to do what he did, but I’m pretty sure he could have just walked away. Two people got hurt badly.
While a Pro Wrestling Dot Net reader witnessed this from two rows behind:
“Kevin Steen assaulted two fans who mixed words with him post match. Steen grabbed one and made out with him. The man shoved Steen and Steen swung and hit the man in the face and then hit the fan next to him who spat. If these men were plants, they were interacting with us all night and were very convincing as fans. One man bled from the lip. The men were two rows in front of me and Steen POTATOED both.”
