ROH News: ROH TV Title Proving Ground Match Added To Honor Reigns Supreme

Published

on

Jeff Cobb
Another new match has been added to Ring Of Honor’s Honor Reigns Supreme!

With Ring Of Honor returning to action this weekend in Atlanta for Saturday Night At Center Stage and then Concord, North Carolina on Sunday for Honor Reigns Supreme, the company is putting the final touches on both lineups today.

Earlier, we noted how Beer City Bruiser vs. Mark Haskins has now been added to Honor Reigns Supreme (see that here) and now this afternoon, another has been made official. ROH has revealed that Honor Reigns Supreme will also feature a Four Corner Survival Proving Ground Match that will see ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb take on Shane Taylor, Jonathan Gresham and Rhett Titus. The winner, should it not be the champion, will receive a title shot the same night:

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.

Since capturing the championship in his very first ROH match, Jeff Cobb has been one of the most dominant champions, ever. Cobb has barely been taken off his feet in his near four months as champ but heads to Concord to take on the man that took him to his limit, Shane Taylor, one of the hottest technical wrestlers in ROH, Jonathan Gresham, and a true wildcard in former ROH World Tag Team Champion Rhett Titus!

And the World Television Championship could be on the line instantaneously should one of those three stars win the Four Corner Survival Match! If anyone other than Jeff Cobb wins this bout, they will receive an instant ROH World Television Championship match against “The Hawaiian Juggernaut”!

PROVING GROUND, FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL – INSTANT REWARD
ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION JEFF COBB vs. SHANE TAYLOR vs. JONATHAN GRESHAM vs. RHETT TITUS

ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb has never been pinned or submitted in a Ring of Honor ring. But the man who came the closest to doing so, the near 300 lbs. Shane Taylor, is getting another shot to unleash his dominance. Taylor tore up Christopher Daniels’ ROH contract after bum-rushing the Grand Slam Champion following his eye-opening tour of the UK. Cobb and Taylor clashed on ROH Television in late 2018 and Taylor presented Cobb’s biggest challenge to date. Taylor looks reinvigorated heading into 2019 and Cobb must be careful!

As must Taylor when Jonathan Gresham steps into the ring! In a Four Corner Survival match last summer in Nashville, Gresham saw his luck in ROH begin to change when he was able to submit Taylor. Gresham used his technical wrestling prowess and international experience to earn the victory. Since then, Gresham has tapped out World Champion Jay Lethal, won a huge tag team match against then IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks with Lethal as his partner, made his second Survival of the Fittest Finals in a row, and captured a main event pin at Global Wars – Lowell. Despite being the smallest athlete in the match, Gresham may be the most dangerous!

Finally, Rhett Titus returns to ROH action for the first time since the Christmas Surprise 10-Man Tag Team match! Titus, a former ROH World Tag Team Champion, is the wild card. With a decade-plus experience in ROH, Titus has the opportunity of a lifetime to earn an instant World Television Championship bout. But will his mind be on the match or will it be on posing, as we have seen on ROH Television and HonorClub events as of late?

Who will pick up the victory in this Four Corners Survival bout? Will one of the three challengers earn an instant ROH World Television Championship bout? The last time the Television Championship was in a match like this, Punishment Martinez won the bout and then went on to win the title under five minutes later! 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.
