ROH TV 5-11-13: Road Rage Edition of Highlights From Border Wars

This was a special Road Rage edition of ROH TV that showed highlights from the recent  Border Wars iPPV event. One of the highlights was when Michael Elgin and Jay Lethal teamed up to take on S.C.U.M. members Jimmy Jacobs & Cliff Compton (accompanied by S.C.U.M. leader Steve Corino). The stipulation of this match was that if S.C.U.M. wins, then one member of the faction would receive a future ROH World Championship opportunity and Steve Corino would become the new commentary partner of Kevin Kelly, but if Elgin and Lethal win, then Corino would be forced to leave ROH for good. At one point in the match, Lethal had injured his knee and was dubbed unable to continue. It was then a 2-on-1 Handicap Match until Kevin Steen showed up and offered to fill in for Lethal, which ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness agreed to. In the end, it was S.C.U.M. who were victorious, thus earning one member of S.C.U.M. a future championship opportunity and earning Corino the right to join commentary. Great, just we need, more heel commentators. Lastly, it was revealed that ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe had successfully defended against Adam Cole.…

After both men had signed the contract and shook hands, S.C.U.M. members Steve Corino, Matt Hardy, & Rhino came out and interrupted. Jay Briscoe then issued an open challenge for a tag team match between himself and Adam Cole against Matt Hardy & Rhino. Nigel agreed to make the match happen, so it was official. At one point during the match, just as Briscoe was about to go for the finish, Cole tags himself into the match.

ROH TV 4-20-13: ROH Challenges S.C.U.M.

The show began with former ROH World Champion and leader of S.C.U.M. Kevin Steen coming out to address his loss to Jay Briscoe at SuperCard of Honor VII. Before he could really start, fellow S.C.U.M. member Steve Corino comes out to confront Steen about not returning any of his calls, as well as his recent actions. Steen tells Corino that the reason he wanted to destroy ROH is because he wanted to put it out of its misery because of the way former ROH Match Maker Jim Cornette was running ROH. Steen said that since Cornette is now no longer with ROH, he feels the company is just fine now. Corino continued to remind Steen of S.C.U.M.’s mission to destroy ROH while other members of S.C.U.M. came out. Steen told Corino that he had only intended for it to be Corino, Jimmy Jacobs, and himself as S.C.U.M. to destroy ROH, rather than add more members of S.C.U.M. Steen then told Corino that since he had the utmost respect for him, he decided to go along with Corino’s plan of bringing more members in. Steen then went on to say that he was happy to work with Corino and Jacobs, but …
