Greetings ROH faithful,
All apologies, this week's blog is a tad bit late due in part to the fact that I was traveling to and from Baltimore for this past weekend's ROH TV taping. What an awesome night, meeting fellow ROH fans paired with a great night of wrestling and excitement = a slam dunk. Trust me, once you see these matches on the upcoming ROH weekly TV show, you'll want to kick your own ass for not being there in person to witness the event live. Have no fear, chances are there is an ROH live event hitting your area sometime very soon and feel free to check the official ROH live event calendar as new dates are being added all the time.
That brings me to new business and the "Boiling Point" iPPV this airing live this Saturday Aug 11, 2012 at 7:30pm EST from the Rhode Island Convention Center in Providence, RI. No joke, this card is going to blow your mind and I myself can't wait to get to Providence to witness it for myself, the upcoming week can't come and go fast enough. Join us for what is shaping up to be a killer night by picking up the last remaining tickets here or for those who can't be there in person, you can watch it live here on your computer, iPhone, iPad and more. If you live within driving distance of “Boiling Point” click here to purchase tickets, because this is a night of action you won’t want to miss.
Let me run this thing down for you, in the main event the ROH World Champion Kevin Steen will defend against the Chikara Grand Champion, Eddie Kingston in what will be a cross promotion battle for, The Ring of Honor World Championship. #DemBoys aka The Briscoes are set to face the "Zombie Princess" Jimmy Jacobs & Steve Corino and based on the reps of the guys involved, it will prove to be the hardest of the hardcore. In a special mixed tag team match, "Die Hard" Eddie Edwards & "The Queen of Wrestling" Sara Del Ray will take on "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett & "The First Lady of ROH" Maria Kanellis. This match is going to be off the hook with brains, brawn and beauty (I'll let you be the judge how to label the teams as to who has what). A rematch from Death Before Dishonor IX puts "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin against "Outlaw" Charlie Haas. Something has changed in Charlie Haas as of late and Michael Elgin is going to be put to the test. Other great matches include Jay Lethal vs. "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa in a 2 out of 3 falls match up, as well as Roderick Strong vs. "No Fear" Mike Mondo.
In closing, I'm curious to hear your thoughts and comments about what you like best about the Ringside Membership video on demand feature or what matches or content you look forward to every month and what you'd like to see as well as your favorite new items in the official ROH store.
Maybe there is an item you'd like to see brought back that hasn't been in the ROH store for some time? Hit me up and let me know on twitter @pedwardshq. I'm always curious to hear what is going through the mind of the ROH fan. I know what goes through mine and it ain't always pretty, lol.
Until next time...
See you next Saturday in Rhode Island or on iPPV!
Patrick Edwards
