Ring Of Honor sent out the following:
A Nightmare In Norfolk
This Saturday, January 21st, Ring of Honor hits Norfolk, VA for the very first time and along with that also come this 1st time ever match when one-half of Future Shock, Adam Cole, takes on “Wrestling’s Worst Nightmare” Kevin Steen!
“This is big.” offered Adam Cole, “For me, on my own, this is maybe as big as when I fought my way into the Survival of the Fittest finals in 2010. Kevin Steen is an absolute madman. I experienced that first-hand when Kyle and I fought him and Steve Corino in Dayton that same year, and from what I can see he’s only gotten worse. His time away from ROH just made him…crazier, and now he wants to take Ring of Honor hostage. That puts a lot on my shoulders in Norfolk, a lot of weight honestly. Whether anyone else feels it, I don’t know, but I feel this responsibility to do whatever I can to stop Kevin in his tracks before he gets anywhere near the ROH World Title.”
These two men have stood opposite one another before, in tag matches, as part of the aforementioned “Survival of the Fittest” in 2010, but this is the first time in Ring of Honor that they have gone one-on-one. Steen brings with him a streak of brutality that Adam Cole hasn’t really faced in his ROH tenure, but based on his above comments, Cole has a fire inside him that Kevin didn’t encounter in their previous meetings.
The eyes of the wrestling world will be on Norfolk, VA this Saturday night when Ring of Honor comes to town and Kevin Steen vs. Adam Cole will be one of the many reasons why. Get your tickets here for ROH’s debut at The Scope!
