Ring of Honor Wrestling held their "12 Anniversary" show on Feb. 21 from Philadelphia and the main event saw ROH world champion Chris Hero defend his title against former WWE developmental star Chris Hero. Here is a look at the Ring of Honor "12 Anniversary" recap and results.

The show opened with Caprice Coleman, who is now wrestling as a singles wrestler since the C&C Wrestle Factory broke up, beating Amasis.

Up next was the newly turned face Matt Taven taking on Silas Young. After Taven lost his TV title, he paid respect to Tomasso Ciampa and then fired Truth Martini as his manager. Taven ended up winning this match with a frog splash. Young attacked Taven after the match but refused to shake hands with Martini who came to the ring.

The Decade was up next. This is a new faction comprised of Jimmy Jacobs, Roderick Strong and BJ Whitmer, three men who have been in Ring of Honor since it started and have a war against people who use Ring of Honor as a stepping stone. Strangely, one of their opponents is also a Ring of Honor lifer in Mark Briscoe, who teamed with Adam Page and Cedric Alexander. The Decade won when Jacobs pinned Page.

The TV title was on the line next. Tomasso Ciampa defended his title against the 2013 ROH Top Prospect tournament winner Hanson. Ciampa won with Project Ciampa.

Michael Elgin was supposed to face Matt Hardy, but Hardy couldn't make it because of flight issues. Instead, Elgin challenged Ramond Rowe from the Top Prospect tournament. The two fought a longish match with Elgin getting with win with the Elgin Bomb. Adam Cole and Michael Bennett attacked them and Jay Briscoe came in for the save, which led to the next match.

Jay Briscoe still has his "Real World Championship" belt and challenged Michael Bennett to try to win it from him. Briscoe won with the Jay Driller.

The ROH tag titles were on the line next as ReDRagon took on Adrenaline RUSH. The end was awesome as ACH hit the 450 splash onto Kyle O'Reilly, but O'Reilly caught him in the triangle choke and made him tap out.

In a match of former TNA Impact Wrestling stars, Jay Lethal took on AJ Styles next. The two fought a nice, long, even match and Styles ended up winning with the Styles Clash.

The ROH World Championship was on the line next with Adam Cole defending against Chris Hero. Cole ended up pinning Hero to retain his world title.

That wasn't the main event though. Kevin Steen fought Cliff Compton in a street fight to close out the Ring of Honor Wrestling "12 Anniversary" show. The match was crazy and went all over the arena and Steen ended up winning with the Package Piledriver. After the match, Steen asked for a world title shot.
