– In what is sure to be a non-stop fast paced bout, two of the most exciting tag teams on the scene face off THIS Saturday in a Scramble Rules Tag Team Match! C&C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) take on Adrenaline RUSH (ACH & Tadarius Thomas) in a match were no tags are necessary because as soon as one man exits the ring, his partner can enter and become legal. In their last two-on-two meeting at “Border Wars 2013” it was C&C who emerged victorious but at “All Star Extravaganza V” in their triple threat bout with The Young Bucks, it was RUSH who picked up the victory when ACH pinned Cedric. This one will be fun!
– ROH is excited that Mike Mondo will make his return THIS Saturday! Mondo hasn’t been seen in an ROH ring since just prior to “Border Wars 2013” when he had to pull out of a scheduled Triple Threat bout with Mike Bennett and Roderick Strong due to a training injury. Now… this Saturday in NYC, Mondo will renew an old rivalry when he squares off with the current World TV Champion Matt Taven in a Proving Ground Match!
– “The Sicilian Psychopath” Tommaso Ciampa is ready for NYC THIS Saturday. It has been one year since Ciampa’s knee injury that kept him out of action for 9 months and Ciampa is now ready to prove that he belongs at the very top of Ring of Honor.

Oh… let me clarify, my friends who are not on the current ROH roster haha!”
