Ring of Honor Wrestling 4/28/12 Review
Cedric Alexander and Caprice Coleman defeated the Briscoe Brothers in a Provings Ground Match
We open up with a solid match here tonight on Ring of Honor
Wrestling. The Briscoe Brothers are good as always and Alexander and
Coleman are good enough to pull up their end. A top rope rana leads to a
springboard splash, with Alexander scoring the pin. As a result of
winning their Proving Grounds Match, the next time Coleman and Alexander
take on the Briscoe Brothers it will be for the Ring of Honor Tag Team
Titles. This match worked well.
Some hype for Border Wars on May 12th in Toronto. Davey Richards
cuts a promo, promising to hurt Kevin Steen. Steen has to win the title
because he'll never be in a better position but Ring of Honor has a
history of holding off on the title change until their fanbase stops
caring. (COUGHS Tyler Black)
Rhino has been transferred over from the Embassy to the House of
Truth, with Prince Nana getting a healthy amount of money from Truth
Rhino defeated Vinny Marseglia
Kudos to Ring of Honor for finally doing a squash match that
actually doesn't go on for a long amount of time. Gore puts down the
jobber and Rhino gets the pin.
Next we got Jim Cornette in the ring, followed by Kevin Steen and
Jimmy Jacobs. Steen runs down Cornette, mocking him and here comes Davey
Richards. Steen says that Richards loves Ring of Honor so much, that he
leaves and goes to Japan or threatens to quit. Back and forth and the
Package Piledriver will be legal for one night and they have to sign a
waiver, where they want sue. Steen mockingly asks what he would sue
Cornette for, old Smoky Mountain Wrestling Footage. It is on, Kevin
Steen against Davey Richards for the Ring of Honor Championship at
Border Wars with the Package Piledriver banned.
Border Wars is Previewed. Kevin Steen against Davey Richards, the
Briscoe Brothers against Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team, Lance Storm
against Mike Bennett, for which Storm's interview that aired last week
is shown. Also, Jay Lethal takes on Tomasso Ciampa, with Lethal vowing
to take Ciampa's undefeated streak for Ciampa costing him the title back
at Sundown in the Sun Day 2. Eddie Edwards takes on Rhino and Michael
Elgin takes on Adam Cole. Go to ROHWrestling.com for ordering

ROH Television Champion Roderick Strong defeated Adam Cole
Pretty decent closing match to end this show. Adam Cole seems to
have a future, whether it is inside Ring of Honor or in another
promotion, we'll just have to wait and see. Cole once again looked
rather impressive, and it was only due to the interference of Michael
Elgin, who distracts Cole to set up their match at Border Wars and
allows Strong to hit one of his many backbreakers for the pin. Strong
gets the win.
The road to Border Wars on May 12th continues with a solid Ring of
Honor Wrestling Show with two great matches and a fun squash.
