After “12 F’N Years,” Kevin Steen realized his dreams by becoming the ROH World champion. He said that he didn’t want to win the World title but that he needed to for his family, for his wife and kid, and for himself. And now that Kevin Steen is the ROH World champion, things will change as he looks to tear down Ring of Honor and rebuild it in his image.
May is Kevin Steen’s Month [Watch]
Once referring himself as the anti-Christ of Pro Wrestling (no… not Raven or Jeff Hardy), Kevin Steen has created a perverse trinity, as seen during the closing moments of Border Wars, recruiting the “Zombie Princess” Jimmy Jacobs and his former mentor Steve Corino.
The Rules Have Changed [Watch]
For more than a year, “The King of Old School” proclaimed that he was a changed man, and, together with his sponsor Jimmy Jacobs, Corino would do right by Ring of Honor. But after seeing the celebration following Kevin Steen’s championship victory, people are speculating whether this whole ordeal was a ruse. Was Corino truly a changed man? Or did Corino intentionally lose to Steen at Final Battle 2011 in order to reinstate his friend back to Ring of Honor?
Whatever the case may be, Kevin Steen is one step closer as the ROH World champion towards destroying Ring of Honor. And it’s not that he doesn’t like ROH because why else would he genuinely want to be World champion? No, his real frustrations lie with management. According to Steen, Jim Cornette is a close-minded, outdated piece of crap who didn’t want him in Ring of Honor. Despite carrying the company for a year, and being the guy that fans flocked to see, ROH management did everything in their power to keep Steen out of the World title picture.
Unfortunately for management, Kevin Steen succeeded in goading Davey Richards for a World championship match that he won. But before crossing the border to Canada, Steen was forced into signing a championship match contract that stated Border Wars would be his one and only shot.
One shot was all Kevin Steen needed; and now that he has the World title, he has the leverage to hold the company hostage as its new face.
