Ring of Honor Newswire for January 29, 2013

- We now know that on March 2nd when we return to Chicago Ridge for our “11th Anniversary Event” live on iPPV, World Champion Kevin Steen will defend his title against Jay Lethal! In Baltimore, on the 1/19 episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” TV, Lethal and Nigel again were face-to-face but instead of chaos erupting, McGuinness told Lethal the only way he was getting a title match against Kevin Steen was if Kevin agreed to lift the match ban himself. So this past weekend on ROH TV, Lethal confronted Steen, as well as the rest of S.C.U.M, and challenged Kevin to put the belt on the line. After hearing Jay give him a list of all the reasons why Steen needs to fight Jay, the World Champion (who has been oddly quiet since NYC) simply said two words: “I accept”! This is a huge windup to a huge celebration so be sure to join us! Tickets are available and if you can't make it to Chicago then you MUST watch live on iPPV!

- Announced yesterday, it's The American Wolves (Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards) vs. The Forever Hooligans (Rocky Romero & Alex Koslov) in a dream tag team match on March 2nd as part of our “11th Anniversary Event” in Chicago Ridge, IL!
