With Ring of Honor’s Boiling Point Internet pay-per-view scheduled for Saturday, Aug. 11, the build to Death Before Dishonor X starts in Rhode Island.

There are so many ways the company can go right now; with tag champions yet to be named, a young Adam Cole as TV Champion and Kevin Steen as World Champion, not paying attention to ROH right now would be foolish.

Add special guests like Sara Del Rey and Eddie Kingston, and this is every Indy Wrestling fan’s dream!

What They’re Saying

Ring of Honor’s Mike Mondo took to twitter to tell everyone he is ready for one of the biggest matches on the card and how they can find out more about it:

While Mondo took time to sell the show, Chikara champion and ROH alumnus Eddie Kingston made his point to current champion Kevin Steen very clear:

Despite not being ROH’s deepest card of the year, Ring Rust Radio knows that this card will still be better than 75 percent of the wrestling we’ll get in 2012:

 

Main-Event Preview and Prediction

ROH World Champion Kevin Steen vs. Chikara Grand Champion Eddie Kingston

While many fans haven’t fallen in love with this main event, any true wrestling aficionado loves what Kevin Steen is for Ring of Honor; he is their new CM Punk.

Add in his stable of minions (S.C.U.M. featuring Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs) and Kevin Steen has a gimmick and the power to make a serious impact on wrestling.

Standing in his way at Boiling Point, though, is Chikara Grand Champion Eddie Kingston.

Kingston was a former ROH star, but was barred from the company. Since leaving the company, the champion has found great success with awesome Indy promotion Chikara.

While Steen will not be dropping the title to a man from another company, the working relationship with Chikara is something to think about. We’ll just have to tune in to find out.

Prediction: Kevin Steen retains

 

Undercard Match to Watch

Jay Lethal vs. "The Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa w/ RD Evans

While the majority of casual fans will remember Jay Lethal as the guy who did a Macho Man gimmick in TNA, he has built quite the reputation and career in Ring of Honor. Between his great mic work and in-ring prowess, Lethal is a huge asset for ROH.

On the other hand, Tommaso Ciampa is a younger star that is really just starting to make his mark on the business. With a great in-ring attitude and demeanor, The Sicilian Psychopath is one of the most interesting men in the business.

When you put these two together—as we have seen now throughout their extended feud—these men make magic. With the classic 2-out-of-3 falls format, this will be the show-stealer of Boiling Point.

Prediction: Tommaso Ciampa goes over
