VIDEO: Ring of Honor Press Conference with Sinclair Broadcast Group
Ring of Honor Wrestling presents an hotly anticipated Internet Pay Per View live thru GoFightLive.tv with “Best in the World” at 3pm C/4pm E. It’s a busy time for the third biggest wrestling company in North America. ROH recently announced that they were purchased by the Sinclair Broadcast Group, bringing their pro wrestling brand to weekly broadcast TV through a syndicated network and online distribution. You can watch the 30 minute press conference which features ROH management and talent speaking about the new TV deal and this Sunday’s PPV in this link.
“Best in the World” which is affordable at 14.95$, is headlined by a long-awaited main event between former tag team partners, Davey Richards challenging Edddie Edwards for the ROH World Championship. The card is also stacked with former (and possibly future) WWE talent inclyuding Charlie Haass and Shelton Benjamin defending the ROH Tag Team Championships in a Triple-Threat Match.
ROH World Title Match
Eddie Edwards defends vs. Davey Richards
ROH established it’s underground alternative brand of pro wrestling with hard-hitting breathtaking classic matches featuring the likes of C.M. Punk and Samoa Joe. This World Championship Match is no different, but the match has been the works since earlier this year. Richards whose one of the most talked about wrestlers in the world outside of WWE and TNA, is primed to finally win his first ROH World title. Edwards who wrestled in Richard’s proverbial shadow when both men were the American Wolves tag team, has been able launch himself to the top as the current World Champ in ROH. The match will be incredible with stiff striking, sueplex after sueplex, and counter-for-counter action. It feels like a given that Richards will win, but ROH has thrown huge curveballs to their dedicated fans in the past when things are ‘expected’.
World Tag Team Title Four Way Elimination Match
ROH World Tag Team Champions Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin) defend vs. The Kings of Wrestling (Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli) vs. The All Night Express (Rhett Titus & Kenny King) vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe
The World’s Greatest solidfy their mark otuside of the WWE earlier this year when they captured the ROH Tag gold, but this will be their toughest challenge since joining the company. All Night Express have been building momentum with their dynamic double team moves and swagger-driven interviews. The Briscoes who are six-time ROH Tag Team Champs, are now heeling it up with a no-mercy assault on anyone in their way. Yet with the Briscoes already holding the title on multiple occasions, it feels less likely that the redneck rebels will leave the Hammerstein as 7-time Champs. Both World’s Greatest and ANX will need to neutralize the wild Briscoes,and then duke it out amongst one another to decide the winner. If your dissappointed by the lack of quality tag team wrestling on TV, catch this match for sure.
Also on the card six action-driven matches.
