You can watch the show live online at gofightlive.tv and order it as an on-demand video stream later this week. The show airs live at 8pm EST/ 7PM CST Tonight from the Ted Reeves Arena.
RING OF HONOR WORLD TITLE MATCH
Tylar Black (c) vs. Davey Richards
In a recent interview Richards stated he will walk away from pro wrestling at the end of the year. His last show should be Ring of Honor’s Final Battle 2010. So this could possibly Richards last World Title shot. And who better then to have it against the reigning champion, Tylar Black. Two of the best going at for the World Championship in one of the most anticipated matches in ROH history. The story for this match is symbolic of Ring of Honor: passionate wrestlers going at full force for pro wrestling. It’s that simple.
That’s one of many reasons this is going to be an awesome match.
Predictions: Black outlasts Richards after many close calls and retains the ROH World Champion
Grudge Match – El Generico vs Kevin Steen
After a six month feud between these two former tag team partners, we finally get to see them face off in a singles match. The build has been brought to a climax, and it will all be settled in the ring tonight. The personal tension between these two should have the crowd at the Ted Reeves Arena loud and rowdy. Steen will be relentless both physically and mentally. Look for Steen to mock and beat on his masked former ally , but it won’t be long before the Generic Luchador comes back hard.
Prediction: El Generico wins clean

Pick 6 Contenders Series Match
(2) Christopher Daniels vs. Kenny Omega
Omega has a lot to prove in this match against the returning Daniels. Omega with an upset could start a feud or the Fallen Angle could simply cement his status in the ROH World title picture, with a victory. This match will likey be early in the show, so it will set the pace for the rest of the show. Daniels and Omega are both varied in their ring styles, so look for this match to go all over the pace with a lot of action.
Predciton: Daniels wins and sets up a match against the winner of the Black vs. Richards title match
Do yourself a favor and check out this in-depth interview with Richards and Black where they talk about their lives and what it took for them to become who they are today.
And don’t forget the uber-dramatic promo video narrated by Chicago Bulls legend, Michael Jordan…
Grudge Match – King & Titus are BARRED from ringside
Austin Aries vs. Delirious
A while back the Pro Wrestling Examiner featured a video showing Aries rupturing Delirious’s larynx ala Macho Man Randy Savage vs. Ricky Steamboat (check that out here), and if you saw that clip, you know Aries has a butt-kicking coming his way. Delirious is already a mad man to begin with, look for him to lose it big time when he gets his hands on Aries. This very odd video with Delirious depicts him being “drunk on revenge”, watch it here Delirious is already crazy, now he’s drunk too?!
The stipulation that keeps Aries’s lackeys, Kenny King and Rhett Titus from ringside adds intrigue as well. How will Aries hold off the enraged onslaught of Delirious by himself? The former ROH World champ will use his greatest weapon: his mind
Prediction: Aries uses mind games, and sneaks away with a cheating victory
ROH WORLD TAG TEAM TITLES
THE BRISCOES VS. THE KINGS OF WRESTLING (CHRIS HERO AND CLAUDIO CASTIGNOLI)
Why is it the villains in ROH think it’s good idea to beat up the loved ones of their opponents? Aries made this mistake when he attacked Delirious’s main squeeze, Dazey Haze. The Kings were evil when the attacked the father of the Briscoe Brothers, Jay and Marc. If you don’t the Briscoes, they are legit bad asses. So making them angry seems to be a really bad game plan for any match, let alone one where the Tag Titles are on the line. This will be a hard hitting affair for sure.
Prediction: The Kings use some underhanded tactics and possibly the aid of their cohorts, Sara Del Ray and Shane Hagadorn to retain the titles. They will not walk away unscathed though.
The 2nd Annual Toronto Gauntlet
Colt Cabana vs. Steve Corino vs. Eddie Edwards vs. Roderick Strong vs. Shawn Daivari vs. Tyson Dux
There is not much build here , but a whole lot of action to look forward too. This one will feature a flurry of double team mayhem, over-the-top-rope splashes, and much more. But it will be all Boom Boom in the end…
Prediction: Colt “BOOM BOOM” CABANA will be your winner
Tag Team Action
Kenny King & Rhett Titus vs. Cheech and Cloudy
Prediction: King and Titus win with Titus gyrating his hips as victory dance.
