Ring of Honor announced two titles matches for their Feb. 9 television tapings in Lakeland, FL.
First, Jeff Cobb will defend his ROH TV Title against Silas Young.
Young earned this title opportunity by winning a mini-tournament on “Ring of Honor Wrestling.” “The Last Real Man in Pro Wrestling” defeated former friend Beer City Bruiser in a no-disqualification match in the first round and rising star Eli Isom in the finals.
Young has been even more despicable than usual as of late, as he has been wreaking havoc in ROH as part of a loose alliance with Bully Ray, the Briscoes and Shane Taylor. Cobb learned firsthand what Young is all about when they were on opposite sides of a tag match last week at Road to G1 Supercard: San Antonio. That match, which pitted Young and Taylor against Cobb and Willie Mack, ended in a disqualification after Young delivered a low blow to Cobb.
Cobb has been dominant since steamrolling Punishment Martinez in under 90 seconds to win
the ROH World Television Title in September in his first match in ROH, but he undoubtedly will have his hands full with Young, a two-time former ROH World Champion.
Next, Villain Enterprises will challenge The Kingdom for the ROH Six-Man Tag Team Titles.
The Kingdom thought they had Scurll right where they wanted him during an international television taping last month: alone in the center of the ring, without a single friend to help him. As The Kingdom prepared to pounce on him, Scurll delivered a message to Taven, O’Ryan and Marseglia.
“You are right, my friends have left me,” Scurll said. “But it doesn’t mean I can’t make new ones.” That’s when Scurll revealed PCO and Brody King as members of Villain Enterprises. A brawl ensued and The Kingdom made a hasty retreat.
Villain Enterprises was scheduled to face The Kingdom for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles on the most recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” but Taven came out before the match and said that they didn’t deserve a title shot because they hadn’t even had one match as a team yet. He said they needed to prove themselves, so he arranged for them to face Shinobi Shadow Squad (Cheeseburger, Eli Isom and Ryan Nova).
Villain Enterprises beat 3S and then went on to defeat ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe and Silas Young at Honor Reigns Supreme. The ROH Board of Directors was impressed and booked the title match between Villain Enterprises and The Kingdom for Lakeland.
Fightful will have full results from ROH's TV tapings follow their conclusion next Saturday.
