ROH News: Beer City Bruiser vs. Mark Haskins Added To Honor Reigns Supreme

Published

Beer City Bruiser
Ring Of Honor’s Honor Reigns Supreme has a new match!

Coming up this weekend, Ring Of Honor will return to the road for the first time in the New Year, beginning tomorrow night with Saturday Night At Center Stage in Atlanta, then it’s off to Concord, North Carolina on Saturday for Honor Reigns Supreme.

The card for the event already features a number of title matches including Jay Lethal defending the ROH World Championship against Dalton Castle (see that announcement here), plus Jenny Rose challenges for the WOH World Title in a Street Fight against Kelly Klein (more on that here).

With only a couple of days remaining before Honor Reigns Supreme live on Honor Club, the final touches are being put on the lineup as a new match has been added when one of ROH’s new faces, Mark Haskins, goes one-on-one with Beer City Bruiser:

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Concord, N.C., on Sunday, Jan. 13 for Honor Reigns Supreme at Cabarrus Arena. The top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss show that will be streamed live worldwide for HonorClub.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the happenings in Concord undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

The winner of the inaugural International Cup Mark Haskins makes his return to Ring of Honor and his domestic HonorClub debut in Concord at Honor Reigns Supreme! The man who defeated Jonathan Gresham, Flip Gordon, and Adam Page over the course of three days, including Gordon and Page in the same night, looks to make his mark in 2019 against one of the largest stars in ROH!

MARK HASKINS vs. BEER CITY BRUISER

Mark Haskins came within an eyelash of defeating Jay Lethal for the ROH World Championship at Honor Re-United in London in August. Since then, Haskins stock has risen on the international stage and now Haskins and ROH officials have come to terms to make Haskins exclusive to ROH in the US! In 2019, Haskins will undoubtedly look to pick up where he left off at Honor Re-United and that quest starts with Beer City Bruiser!

Bruiser has formed a formidable tag team with Brian Milonas in The Bouncers but has also shown he can compete in singles competition, with standout bouts against then-ROH World Champion Dalton Castle and former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Naito in 2018. Bruiser looks to prove he too belongs in championship contention and goes into this first-time match up against Haskins with a size and strength advantage. But a question mark remains whether or not Bruiser now has the killer instinct to put such an intense competitor like Haskins away, especially now that we have seen Bruiser move to showing more respect to his opponents with the Toast of Honor!

Who will pick up the victory in this first-time one-on-one match? Join us in Concord or watch live on HonorClub to find out!

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle: CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More! (6/14/19)

News Involving CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More! (6/14/19)

News here! CM Punk/AEW, Moxley vs Omega, WWE/FOX and More!

New Wrestling Promotion Launches

2019 has been a very busy year for wrestling, especially when it comes to new promotions launching. Former WWE stars Alberto Del Rio and Chavo Guerrero have partnered together to launch Nacion Lucha Libre. Some of the announced roster includes MVP, Carlito, Del Rio’s former ring announcer Ricardo Rodriguez, LAX, and Pentagon. Del Rio has also hinted in signing currently contracted WWE stars when their contracts run up.

Jason’s Take

Obviously, this won’t be direct competition with the WWE, however it can draw fans away from the Mexico fan base the company has attempted to build. I am wondering if even though fans are unhappy with WWE, if all these new promotions are leading to an over saturation of product.

Moxley vs Omega At All Out

You have to hand it to AEW, as they are creating some very interesting matchups. Today, the company announced that Jon Moxley will take on Kenny Omega at the August 1st All Out event.

Jason’s Take

This matchup is intriguing to say the least. Two completely different styles of wrestling, creating what I hope to be a great match. This one shouldn’t dissapoint.

CM Punk All In On All Out?

One of the big names that has long been rumored to join AEW is CM Punk. Punk seems to be done with wrestling, but every time AEW has announced an event, fans start up the rumor mill. With the upcoming All Out show taking place in Punk’s hometown of Chicago, many speculate Punk will make an appearance. Punk seems to have shot down that speculation in his latest Tweet.

Jason’s Take

Wrestling has always been a business where a person never could say never. While it is unlikely that Punk signs with AEW, there will always be the speculation that he will. But what would Punk offer to the upstart company? Name recognition ? Could Punk still go in the ring ?

SmackDown On FOX Commercials Start To Air

We all know that SmackDown will be moving to FOX this October, and the network paid a lot of money for WWE programing. FOX looks like it has the wheels in motion for the promotional blitz informing network viewers that SmackDown is heading to the network. Below is a commercial that has been airing, and many are pointing out that the advertisement contains a redesigned logo for the show.

Jason’s Take

FOX spent a lot of money to get WWE programming, so it’s no surprise that they are airing commercials four months in advance. Or could it be that FOX is worried about the low ratings that WWE programming has been generating?

AEW Fyter Fest To Stream For Free

This week is the E3 Electronic Entertainment Expo being held in Los Angeles. During Tuesday’s festivities, Kenny Omega appeared and announced that the upcoming Fyter Fest will stream live, and be free for everyone. It is not known where it will air, but many are assuming it will air on B/R Live. Fyter Fest is June 29th @ 8pm EST.

Jason’s Take

This will only help broaden the exposure of AEW, and I am all for this airing live for free. I have to hand it to AEW, because it seems like they are everywhere. Fyter Fest looks like it will be a stacked card so far, with Jon Moxley taking on Joey Janella. I am going to go out on a limb here, and say that the match will be a violent one.

All Out News

Speaking of AEW, they do have another big show coming up on August 31st, entitled, All Out. The main event of the show will see the crowning of the first AEW Champion, as Chris Jericho takes on Hangman Page. On Tuesday, Cody Rhodes announced ticket prices for the event. Tickets will range from $30 to $190. Rhodes also Tweeted a seating chart of the event.

Jason’s Take

All Out will most likely be the last pay per view event before weekly TV starts in October. So I fully expect that the company will go all out (no pun intended) in terms of matches, etc.

Chris Jericho On Goldberg/Undertaker

In Monday’s shuffle, I discussed the much talked about match (and not in a good way) at Super ShowDown between Undertake and Goldberg. Many people throughout the wrestling world have weighed with their opinions on the match, and the latest to do so is Chris Jericho.

Jason’s Take

It is an interesting perspective from Jericho. Though, Ozzy Osbourne can’t sing at all anymore, and it’s embarrassing to watch. Anyway……Both Undertaker and Goldberg are legends from their era, but I do think it’s time they hang it up or move into non performance roles.

Cesaro Injured On RAW?

During the six man tag team match on RAW, it appeared that Cesaro was inured when Ricochet landed badly on his leg when he hit the 630 splash. After the match, Cesaro was helped to the back by WWE officials. According to Dave Meltzer, the chatter backstage is that he was not injured during the spot.

Jason’s Take

One of those times where a painful spot just happens. I thought for sure Cesaro either broke or pulled something right after the move, so here is hoping he is ok.
