-Late this evening, Ring of Honor announced the “cancellation” of its Fight Without Honor for this weekend’s “Final Battle 2010” iPPV between Kevin Steen and El Generico. Instead, they are now billing the Career vs. Mask match as an UNSANCTIONED affair, as they say, “with ROH released from all obligation, liability, tax, etc.”
This is the company’s storyline explanation for why the Steen vs. Generico match will go on last during the show, as opposed to the World title match pitting challenger Davey Richards against Roderick Strong. All told, the show will feature 7 matches and will stream live on GoFightLive.tv this Saturday, December 18th, from the Manhattan Center in New York City. To order the event, click HERE.
–Kenny Omega suffered an ankle injury this past week and has been bumped from his scheduled match against Eddie Edwards this Saturday. ROH is expected to announce Omega’s replacement shortly.
-Jerry Lynn, who has been flown in to work as an agent at some recent ROH on HDNet tapings, is not expected to be backstage at “Fina Battle” this weekend. Lynn, 47, is still recovering from back surgery stemming from a slipped disc he suffered while training for a match with Rob Van Dam at TNA’s “Hardcore Justice” PPV in August. You may recall, Lynn was unable to compete at the show and Sabu was chosen as a last minute replacement.
