Jay Briscoe and Austin Aries will be teaming up to face Jimmy Jacobs and Tyler Black at Hammerstein. Mark Briscoe is injured and out for the next 6 months due to surgery and Austin Aries has been called in to team with Jay. Aries and Jimmy have had building tensions since the last Chicago show when Aries convinced Lacey to leave the Age of the Fall. What will happen at Hammerstein? Buy a ticket and find out!
Also announced for Hammerstein is the main event of Claudio Castagnoli vs. Nigel McGuinnes for the Ring of Honor World Title. They’ve been building to this match since Dover and the March 15th show where Claudio pinned Nigel clean. Will McGuinness retain at Ring of Honor’s biggest New York show ever or will Castagnoli show everyone that he isn’t just the “Hey” guy?
In the final piece of Hammerstein weekend news, it’s been announced that Jack Evans will be facing The Necro Butcher in a NO DQ match in Manassas, VA. The two previously fought at Final Battle 2007 when Evans barely managed to defeat The Butcher after a whole host of interference. This time Evans wants to make the victory decisive while The Necro Butcher wants to build up his momentum for when he faces Takeshi Morishima the next night in Hammerstein.
This is going to be the most underwhelming Ring of Honor show ever. The only thing that will live up the potential of what the show should’ve been is the crowd.
