Ring of Honor his West Virginia for the very first time on June 15th and as part of our debut there we will tape “Road Rage” for future episodes of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV! Several matches were set over the weekend for this huge debut including the World Title match we alluded to last week…
- ROH World Title Match – “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare” Kevin Steen defends “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards
It was announced in the May 17th Newswire that the World Title would be on the line in Charleston with three former World champions names in the hat: Davey Richards, Roderick Strong, and Eddie Edwards. The selection was made and it will be “Die Hard” who will get the very first shot at dethroning Kevin Steen! When these two met one-on-one at “Final Countdown: Boston”, it resulted in Eddie suffering a fractured elbow and at “Showdown in the Sun – Day 2″, Steen beat Eddie via a roll-up. With the World Title on the line, what will Eddie risk to regain it and what will Steen risk to keep it?
- Texas Death Match – The Final Encounter – Jay Briscoe vs. Charlie Haas
Using the rules of the game, Charlie Haas managed to squeak out another win over Jay Briscoe on Saturday night in Richmond during their unsanctioned fight. After the loss, Jay challenged Charlie to one last match between the two men, a Texas Death match, and ROH officials immediately signed this final encounter for Charleston. He can’t win the tag titles back, but will Jay finally make Charlie pay for everything he’s done in the last few months?
- Jay Lethal vs. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin with Truth Martini
Michael Elgin has had a banner year in 2012, so was Jay Lethal before the combined machinations of The House of Truth & The Embassy conspired to cost him the ROH TV Title. Now in Charleston, Lethal and Elgin will lock horns as the former TV Champion looks to gain a measure of revenge against the HoT. Lethal is on a heck of a hot streak after ending Tommaso Ciampa’s undefeated streak & beating Roderick in their 2/3 Falls contest in Dayton, will “Unbreakable” be the man to bring a stop to Lethal’s run?
Also Signed To Appear:
- Current ROH World Television Champion Roderick Strong with Truth Martini
- BJ Whitmer
- Mark Briscoe

- The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King)
