– The countdown to “Final Battle 2012” is on and the anticipation for this epic event is high! To the displeasure of ROH officials and many of the ROH wrestlers, ROH World Champion Kevin Steen has successfully defended his title for almost half of the year against some of the toughest challengers in pro wrestling today. Many on the inside of ROH had predicted that if Kevin Steen defeats all of the top challengers and is still the face of the company going into 2013 that it could be the end of the company and honor as we know it. As announced last Saturday at the TV Tapings, former ROH World Champion Nigel McGuinness has stepped up into the authority/matchmaker role formerly filled by Jim Cornette and promises to restore honor to ROH. Nigel’s first order of business was announcing that the main event at “Final Battle 2012” would see Kevin Steen defend against the man who drove him out of ROH before, “The Generic Luchador” El Generico! AND as per Generico’s request, for the very first time, the 2 arch rivals will battle in a Ladder War over the ROH World Title! Many feel and have predicted that Doomsday is upon us here at ROH, but we promise that Honor Lives and we are on the rise! Make your arrangements now to see this giant event on Sunday December 16th from The Hammerstein Ballroom in NYC!
– Coming off his announcement of Steen/Generico in Ladder War IV, ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness also declared that Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs would defend the World Tag Team Titles at “Final Battle 2012” against Jay & Mark Briscoe and Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander in a 3-Way Match! Remember that you must tune into ROH TV starting on November 17th to see details and how this is played out.
