JUNE 5TH NEWSWIRE
– Over the weekend on “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV it became official that at “Best in the World: HOSTAGE CRISIS” on Sunday June 24th it will be ROH World Champion Kevin Steen defending against former champion, the man he beat for the title at “Border Wars”, “The American Wolf” Davey Richards! This match will be “Anything Goes” which means there is No DQ, No Countout and No Time Limit! The major question mark in the whole scenario we witnessed on TV though is “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards. The former World Champion will receive his chance to dethrone Steen on June 15th when ROH debuts in Charleston so we could very well be looking at a rematch of our “Best in the World 2011” championship bout should Eddie be successful. Either way, Davey will get his shot and the ROH World Championship will be defended live on iPPV on June 24th at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City! Order your tickets for this mega event right here.
