The latest edition of CHIKARA’s “Throwdown Lowdown” hosted by the “Queen of Wrestling” Sara Del Rey

Ring of Honor sent this in.

The fans of Ring of Honor have seen Jay Lethal grow up right in front of them. From his debut as Hydro in 2002 as part of the party-happy group known as Special K to his time spent under the tutelage of Samoa Joe, the ROH faithful watched Lethal grow as both a competitor and as a man. When he captured his first ROH championship, it was the culmination of a young man’s dream and the battles he fought against the likes of CM Punk, Low Ki, Spanky, and even Joe were proof that he earned his respect every step of the way.

After several years away, Lethal came back to the fold in 2011 a matured, seasoned fighter and immediately jumped back into the hunt for championships with contests against El Generico, Mike Bennett, Davey Richards, Roderick Strong, and others. From his return at “Best in the World 2011” against Bennett through his ROH World Title bout against Richards at “Homecoming 2012”, Jay hit the ring running and hasn’t looked back since. This 2-DVD set is a look back at what shaped Lethal, at the challenges he has faced since his return, and a warning to every competitor in ROH that there’s likely a Lethal Injection in their future…
