Ring of Honor Wrestling will hold their first ever cable television pay-per-view “Best in the World” as they hope to fill in the spot left when many networks dumped the WWE from their pay-per-view offerings. According to PWInsider on Sunday, there are numerous major cable companies who will carry the event including Cablevision, Cox Communications, AT&T U-Verse, DirectTV, DISH, Charter, Time Warner Cable and more.
This will be the first time that Ring of Honor has had an event on a televised pay-per-view. Prior to this, the big Ring of Honor Wrestling events have been on Internet pay-per-view or made for DVD releases. After two years on cable television on the Sinclair Networks, this is the next step in the company’s progression.
The event will be headlined by ROH World Champion Adam Cole putting his world title on the line against Michael Elgin. It was just one year ago that these were considered the two top prospects in the company and now they are fighting for the biggest title in the company on the biggest show in company history.
This also might be the final Ring of Honor appearance for Kevin Steen, who has just signed a contract to head to the WWE developmental promotion NXT. Steen faces Silas Young and this might be a chance for him to put Young over as he leaves the company. Also appearing on the show will be Jay Lethal, Matt Hardy, Michael Bennett, Maria, and many more Ring of Honor superstars.
The tag team titles are on the line as reDRagon defends their belts against the debuting Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. This will be Daniels big return to the company while it will be Kazarian’s Ring of Honor debut. The Ring of Honor “Best in the World” event will also be available on iPPV adn starts at .
