It has just been announced that the original Nigel McGuinness vs. Austin Aries vs. Roderick Strong vs. Erick Stevens elimination match has been canceled due to Aries being injured and out for this forthcoming weekend. In its place Nigel McGuinness will now defend his belt against the winner of a Four Corner Survival Match where it will be Roderick Strong vs. Rocky Romero vs. Erick Stevens vs. El Generico. The dark horse for this is of course El Generico who is getting an opportunity to go at it for the ROH World Title for the first time. Should Generico win the Four Corner Survival and defeat Nigel McGuinness for the Ring of Honor World Title, he would be defending the belt against his tag team partner Kevin Steen the next night. This is going to be very, very interesting.
In additional line-up changes for Boston, Claudio Castagnoli, Delirious & Pelle Primeau will face Chris Hero, Brent Albright & Larry Sweeney in an Elimination Match. Although Castagnoli hoped to get his hands on Sweeney in Edison, Christmas has come early for the man from Switzerland who will do his best to isolate Sweeney in Boston and show everyone the kind of action that put the Ricola company into business because if it’s up to Claudio, Sweeney will be coughing up blood for the rest of the weekend.
And finally the Kevin Steen vs. Necro Butcher match has been changed from a simple Last Man Standing match to a Boston Massacre Match. The last time this type of match took place, it was in 2002 and barbed wire boards became involved. According to Ring of Honor, this is going to be insane.
