Over the past few days, Ring of Honor announced three more matches for their first pay-per-view, Best in the World.
On Wednesday, ROH announced that Jay Lethal would defend the ROH Television Championship against Matt Taven. In that match, Lethal’s manager, Truth Martini, will be handcuffed to the ringpost.
This will be an interesting match. Taven originally won the Television Championship under Truth’s questionable guidance, and the same could be said about Lethal’s second and current reign with the title, which started in April at Supercard of Honor.
Despite being confined to small space, Truth will obviously find a way to get involved in this match, but I think Taven will find a way past that to regain the title, and join Lethal as the only guys to win it twice.
On Thursday, ROHWrestling.com announced two more matches. First, Kevin Steen vs. Silas Young.
At War of the Worlds, Steen appeared to be giving a farewell speech to ROH, but was interrupted by Young. Young then implied that Steen would only be teaching his son how to be a quitter, which made Steen lose his cool and attack Young.
It is now official that the two will meet at Best in the World, where Steen will almost definitely put Young over, in what should be his final match for ROH.
Finally, was the news we’ve all expected to hear for a few weeks, that is that Kazarian will be the man joining Christopher Daniels in his ROH return. What we didn’t expect is that they would immediately be put in a ROH Tag Team Championship Match, giving us an immediate blockbuster tag match against reDRagon.
This is going to be a huge match, and a tough one to call. reDRagon should win, getting the win against an established tag team would be a huge boost to the great, but still young reDRagon. However, logic says that the debuting team should get the win.
In the end, I think that it’s reDRagon’s time right now, but Daniels and Kazarian are sure to get some time with the titles soon.
With still two weeks to go before this pay-per-view, it will be very interesting to see how this card rounds out.
