Ring of Honor Summer Supercard arrives in Toronto

03 de Agosto de 2019 a las 00:30


Toronto.- Next weekend as part of the wrestling extravaganza that will hit Toronto, Ring of Honor is showcasing its Summer Supercard. La Portada Canada as part of this amaizing weekend will be giving away 10 pairs of tickets to its readers through its Facebook Page to the first 10 people who can tell us when and where did Ring of Honor started?

Amongs the featured matches next weekend are:


As part of the international flavor of Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9, a traditional trios match between six top CMLL stars has been signed for the extravaganza.

The special attraction, which is sure to be fast-paced and high-flying, pits tecnicos Caristico, Soberano Jr. and Stuka Jr. against rudos Barbaro Cavernario, Hechicero and Templario.
Caristico, who became one of Mexico’s biggest stars just over a decade ago under the name Mistico, is still very much at the top of his game. He proved that when he made his much-anticipated ROH debut in April.
Soberano Jr. and Stuka Jr. have both competed in ROH in recent years. Soberano Jr. is the current holder of the Mexican National Welterweight Championship, a title he has successfully defended since May 2017. Stuka Jr. is a former co-holder of the CMLL Arena Coliseo Tag Team Championship, a title he held for over four and a half years uninterrupted.
Cavernario, the Mexican National Light Heavyweight Champion, will be making his ROH debut, but he is no stranger to HonorClub members. He teamed with RUSH to defeat Matt Taven and Volador Jr. in a Hair vs. Hair Match in the main event of CMLL’s 85th Anniversary Show, which streamed live for HonorClub, last September.
Hechicero, an 18-year veteran, is a former NWA World Historic Light Heavyweight Champion. This will be his first appearance in ROH since 2016. Templario, 27, was trained by the legendary Ultimo Guerrero. He will be making his ROH debut.
When Tasha Steelz put the entire Women of Honor locker room on notice last month, it was hard to take her too seriously. After all, she had only had a handful of matches in WOH over the past two years.
The “Boricua Badass” quickly made good on her bold pronouncement, however. As seen on this past weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” Steelz won a Four Corner Survival Match to earn a title shot against WOH World Champion Kelly Klein at Summer Supercard on Aug. 9 in Toronto.
In the No. 1 Contender’s Match, Steelz prevailed over six-time world champion Angelina Love, perennial contender Jenny Rose and up-and-coming competitor Stella Grey. After the match, when powerhouse newcomer Maria Manic entered the ring, Steelz showed no fear and stepped right up to her.
Steelz proved that she is both dangerous and fearless. In Klein, however, Steelz will be facing a champion who thrives on competition.
Klein, the only two-time WOH World Champion, recently surpassed the 100-day mark as the current titleholder. She has made it clear that she will defend her title anytime, anywhere against anyone.
Will Klein thwart the hungry challenger? Or will Steelz pull off the upset and leave with the gold? Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to find out!
Summer Supercard will feature top wrestlers from ROH, NJPW, and CMLL competing for championships and in dream matches. Don’t miss your opportunity to see the hottest show of the summer!
Alex Shelley now knows who he will be stepping into the ring with when he competes for the ROH World Title at Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9. It will be Matt Taven, who successfully defended his championship at Manhattan Mayhem over the weekend.
Despite their long tenures in ROH, Shelley and Taven have never had a singles match against one another, and they’ve only faced each other in tag matches a handful of times.
Shelley shocked everyone a year ago by announcing that he was stepping away from pro wrestling. He resurfaced at the ROH TV taping in Philadelphia last month with another shocking announcement: Shelley said he was returning to the ring and he’s coming after the world championship.
In his first match back, at Mass Hysteria on Sunday, Shelley looked to be in great shape and showed no signs of ring rust. He teamed with Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham to defeat The Kingdom (Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) in the main event. Shelley scored the win for his team by forcing O’Ryan to tap out.
Shelley, who has been wrestling for 17 years but is still just 36, has won championships all over the world, including the ROH World Tag Team Title (with Chris Sabin as The Motor City Machine Guns), New Japan Pro Wrestling’s IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Title (three times), X Division Title, and the heavyweight title for German promotion wXw.
For all his success, however, Shelley has only received two shots at the ROH World Title -- against Austin Aries in 2005 and Bryan Danielson in 2006. Shelley’s lack of world title opportunities is due largely to the fact that he has concentrated more on tag team wrestling than singles competition.
After a year off to recharge, Shelley believes the time is right to go for the richest prize in the sport. He’ll be facing a champion who continues to silence his doubters.
Since winning the title at G1 Supercard in April before a sellout crowd at Madison Square Garden, Taven has successfully defended it against two-time former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and Kenny King in a Triple Threat Match, PCO, Jeff Cobb, Flip Gordon, Mark Haskins and Tracy Williams. He handed PCO and Cobb their only pinfall losses in ROH.
Will Shelley make history in Toronto? Or will Taven turn back another challenger to his crown? Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to find out!
Summer Supercard will feature top wrestlers from ROH, NJPW and CMLL competing for championships and in dream matches. Don’t miss your opportunity to see the hottest show of the summer!
The violent feud between the Briscoes and Guerrillas of Destiny escalated over the weekend, and now the teams will take the brutality to even greater heights when they battle in a Ladder War at Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9 with the fate of the ROH World Tag Team Titles literally hanging in the balance.
Jay and Mark Briscoe defeated G.O.D. (Tama Tonga and Tanga Loa) in a savage New York City Street Fight at Manhattan Mayhem last Saturday to win the titles for the 11th time, but the issue between the bitter rivals remains unsettled.
Adding fuel to an already blazing inferno, G.O.D. sneak-attacked the Briscoes the next night at Mass Hysteria in Lowell, Mass., after the Briscoes’ successful title defense against The Bouncers and left them bloody and battered. G.O.D. also disrespectfully tossed around the ROH belts.
G.O.D., who are the reigning IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, had successfully defended the ROH World Tag Team Titles against the Briscoes -- thanks to using one of the championship belts as a weapon -- in an Honor Club exclusive match at War of the Worlds in Chicago in May.
With the teams now 1-1 in head-to-head meetings, the Ladder War will decide once and for all which of the highly decorated duos is superior.
Making the match a Ladder War was a logical decision by ROH officials, not only because of the bad blood between the teams, but also because the Briscoes used a ladder to score the victory at Manhattan Mayhem.
Who will survive what is sure to be an epic Ladder War between the two best teams in the sport and leave with the gold? Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to find out!
Dalton Castle has yet to gain a victory over RUSH, but he certainly has succeeded in getting the intense luchador’s attention.
“El Toro Blanco” is seeing red after Castle’s actions last weekend and is champing at the bit to get his hands on the former ROH World Champion. He will get his wish -- in a no-disqualification match -- at Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9.
Castle, who has been a loose cannon ever since losing to RUSH in 16 seconds at G1 Supercard in April before a sellout crowd in Madison Square Garden -- masqueraded as a RUSH fan under a mask at Manhattan Mayhem last Saturday. After RUSH’s win over TK O’Ryan, Castle hopped over the rail and assaulted RUSH. Adding insult to injury, Castle hit RUSH’s finisher -- Bull’s Horns -- on him.
The next night at Mass Hysteria in Lowell, Mass., Castle and RUSH squared off in a match that ended with Castle getting disqualified for using a low blow. After the match, Castle once again left RUSH lying, as he threw a chair at RUSH’s head and then proceeded to attack RUSH’s left shoulder with the weapon.
Will Castle be the man who hands RUSH his first loss in ROH? Or will RUSH make Castle pay for his transgressions? Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to find out!
A first time-ever tag team match featuring four of the most talented athletes in Ring of Honor has been signed for Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9, as LifeBlood’s Bandido and Mark Haskins will face Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham.
Until recently, one could say that this bout typifies what ROH is all about. All four men have been regarded as some of the most honorable competitors in ROH, but that appears to no longer be the case based on Gresham’s sudden change in attitude.
Gresham used a low blow to defeat Silas Young -- in a Pure Rules Match, no less -- at the Best in the World pay-per-view last month. Then he used a foreign object to win a Four Corner Survival Match on the most recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”
Lethal confronted his friend after the latter match about his questionable tactics, but Gresham wasn’t receptive. Gresham said he came to ROH to restore honor, but he failed. He said the competitors cheat and lie, so he learned how to play their game and he’s going to be the best at it.
LifeBlood’s mission statement upon arrival in ROH also was to restore honor, and they remain committed to doing so. However, while they prefer to play by the rules and adhere to the Code of Honor, they won’t back down from a fight, as evidenced by Bandido, Haskins and Tracy Williams’ victory over ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, PCO and Brody King) in a non-title Philadelphia Street Fight on TV last weekend.
Bandido and Haskins versus Lethal and Gresham is a must-see match under any circumstances, but Gresham’s new outlook -- and the tension it has created between him and Lethal -- make it even more compelling. Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to see how it goes down!
As seen in a YouTube exclusive, “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams won a Proving Ground Four Corner Survival Match to earn a shot at ROH World Television Champion Shane Taylor at Summer Supercard in Toronto on Aug. 9.
Williams scored the winning pinfall on Silas Young in the match, which also included Taylor and Josh Woods. This will be the LifeBlood member’s first shot at the ROH World Television Title.
Williams proved that he can go toe-to-toe with the very best in ROH when he came close to upsetting ROH World Champion Matt Taven last month. Still, he will have his work cut out for him against Taylor.
Taylor is determined to be the longest-reigning ROH World Champion of all time. He has a long way to go, but the bad man from the mean streets of East Cleveland has made two impressive title defenses thus far, defeating Bandido and Eli Isom.
Will Williams get his first taste of ROH gold? Or will Taylor make Williams another notch on his belt? Join us live in person or streaming for Honor Club to find out!
