ROH original returning to the promotion
Feb 23, 2012 - by Steve Gerweck
He was in the first official match at “The Era of Honor Begins”, battling Jay Briscoe in a hard-hitting & high-flying exhibition that set the tone for what was to come. He actually pulled double-duty that night, competing in a Ultimate Aerial Elimination Match later on teaming with The SAT in a losing effort against Quiet Storm & Brian XL with their trainer Mikey Whipwreck serving as the guest referee. He is The Amazing Red!
He had the honor of teaming with Eddie Guerrero at “A Night of Appreciation”, battled Xavier & Low Ki at “Road to the Title”, innovated aerial combat in ROH throughout the early years, reigned as one-half of the Tag Team Champions alongside AJ Styles, and actually never lost the belts as Red suffered a serious injury that forced ROH officials to strip he & AJ of the belts. The last time he battled inside the ROH ring was in a Six Man Mayhem at the “At Our Best” event against Teddy Hart, Sonjay Dutt, Jimmy Rave, Jack Evans & Mark Briscoe. He was a trendsetter, and now, as ROH celebrates its tenth anniversary, he is coming back to the fold!
At the “10th Anniversary Event” on March 4th in NYC, the original high-flyer of ROH will team with “Technical Lighting” TJ Perkins, his present day equivalent, to take on former ROH World Champion Roderick Strong & “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin.
“The House of Truth has no issues with you Red, nor with you TJ Perkins.” Said Truth Martini, “That being said, I must warn you that this is 2012 and we are the HoT. This is our time and very soon Ring of Honor will be our company as both my men have title certainties in their future. This anniversary will be remembered as the night the HoT demonstrated why we are the most dominant force in ROH’s history; as individuals, and as a team. We welcome your efforts TJ, Red, and we look forward to the challenge you present, but it is an inevitability that you will fall to the Messiah of the Backbreaker and The Unbreakable One. So sayeth the Truth!”
No issues, no grudges, just four men going out there to put on the absolute best wrestling contest they can! It’s the return of The Amazing Red as he teams with TJ Perkins to face off with Strong & Elgin! It all goes down at the “10th Anniversary Event” on March 4th at The Hammerstein Ballroom!
