#WatchROH – Aired 12 May 2012

I know it’s the wrong border. I don’t care.

Ultramantis Black is joining Nigel McGuinness & Kevin Kelly in the announce booth for the Chikara take over of ROH. They add a pillow ad on before this so I can only hope this is another short show on a PPV night. That’s not a bad plan on their part. Why waste a squash match after a PPV that has yet to be wrestled? Ophidian (Hypnosis dude) and the Ice Creams are teaming together against The Colony. They had separate names but they didn’t show them on the screen so I don’t care. They stressed the heavy Lucha Libre influence including following their rules. Soldier Ant has camouflage on. Green Ant is next in the match. I’m confused. The action is fast. They cut to commercial at a bad time.

They come back with Ricky Reyes hitting the ring for a match against Jay Lethal. What the hell happened to the Chikara match? Kelly calls Lethal’s 20 pound weight advantage negligible. Reyes went on the attack early. The announcers do a good job of selling Reyes’ previous loss on ROH TV against Roderick Strong. Lethal turned it around with a leg lariat. A hand spring back elbow only got a two count. Kelly informs us that we’ll get Border Wars highlights next week. A Roll of the Dice by Reyes got him a two count. Nigel sells ROH as a parity league. Lethal Combination then a Lethal Injection for the win. He took care of Reyes much easier than Tomasso Ciampa taking care of Matt Taven the previous week.

Veda Scott interviewed Davey Richards about his match with Rhino. Richards is confused why Truth Martini would hire a hit man when he has something better in Michael Elgin. Richards said Rhino won’t be able to gore him with a broken ankle. Richards tells Rhino he’ll knock him back into the jungle if he does get a chance to try and gore him. Richards then gives us his best Blue Steel look.

Brock Lesnar and Dave Batista at WrestleMania 28?

Let the speculation begin with these two news items hot off the wire. It has been reported that Dave Batista, star of The Scorpion King 3 along with Billy Zane, is in Miami. Now he is supposedly doing work for The St Jude Children’s Hospital but we all know there is no chance of that. Primarily due to the fact that all of the children in a children’s hospital are way too young for his poon hound ass. Making matters even more clear is he is supposed to be in one leg of a triathlon and really, come on, Batista running, biking or swimming is an obvious torn muscle waiting to happen. So, we all have to figure he will appear on the WrestleMania broadcast in some capacity. Best bet for his appearance is during the divas match. This way he can make it way more interesting by pulling out his schlong and yelling ” Did ya miss me?” This would increase the workrate, internet mark alert, of this match exponentially.

Also, Brock Lesnar is negotiating with WWE to appear at WrestleMania 28 as well, according to Prowrestling.net. Lesnar was last seen being pummeled in a UFC octagon by Alistair Overeem. Soon after the rumblings started that he would return to WWE but that talk had been quiet for the last few months. So, we now get to play the same game of placing Brock Lesnar on WrestleMania 28. The only place to go would be the main event and The Rock even let the cat out of the bag last week so it seems like there will be some sort of interference. Now, if this is the case does this match go on last? Do they really want another ending similar to last year’s? Or could Lesnar simply appear at the end of the show for a stare down? Could he possibly pick up on the Undertaker confrontation? -Jeremy
