ROH News on Kevin Steen, Briscoes, Ibushi & Austin Aries

Following is from the ROH Newswire for April 10, 2008, at…

Kevin Steen has the weekend of his life waiting for him in Boston and Edison as he faces Necro Butcher in a Boston Massacre Match and goes up against Ring of Honor World Champion Nigel McGuinness in a battle for the belt.

First, Steen and Necro will main event Boston in order to keep the fans from walking out after seeing the spectacle that this match will have to offer. Nothing else on the card will be able to compare.

Then Steen will face off against Nigel McGuinness in the match of his life. After coming so close to the belt that he could taste it like his Momma’s eggs and bacon, Kevin Steen will give his all to fulfill his prophecy of obtaining Ring of Honor gold in 2008. However, with McGuinness facing the winner of an already exhausting Four Corner Survival match in Boston and Steen competing in a blood letting Boston Massacre Match, will Steen be at 100% in Edison?

The Briscoes don’t think so and are arguing though that their match against the No Remorse Corps should the Edison main event so that people can be sent home happy with a title change. Ring of Honor has not decided which whether the World Title Match of Nigel McGuinness vs. Kevin Steen or World Tag Title Match of The NRC vs. The Briscoes will headline Edison.

Kota Ibushi will land in NJ today and get a day’s rest before attempting to steal this weekend. The DDT promotion if very proud of Ibushi and has sent him here to spread the word on the promotion as well as to make a name for himself. This is the only chance to see Kota Ibushi live on the east coast.

Jack Evans is also making is long awaited ROH debut after his horrible facial injury in Japan. He will first be facing The Briscoes in Boston alongside his Vulture Squad member, Jigsaw. Then the next night, he will face El Generico in what is sure to be an amazing high flying match. The two have battled elsewhere to rave reviews and it will be the first time they will going at it in ROH. They will be sure to tear the house down!

Austin Aries and Lacey have vanished. No one in ROH can reach them.

A singles match has been added to Detroit’s “Tag Wars 2008” in Jigsaw vs. Joey Mercury. The complete card for the show will be unveiled next week alongside news on the Hammerstein show.

Also just signed for Chicago 4/19 is Chris Hero with Larry Sweeney vs. Delirious. And speaking of Larry Sweeney, the super agent has revealed that he will sign a new talent to Sweet and Sour Incorporated in Boston. Who will this mystery talent be?
