– Ring of Honor World champion Davey Richards was involved in a car accident on Tuesday forcing him to miss his recent New Japan tour. Richards will not be slowed down however, and will use this latest circumstance as just more fuel going into his World Championship defense against Kevin Steen at “Border Wars” on May 12th in Toronto. “I am hurt.” Explained Richards, “I am hurt mentally that I had to miss the recent New Japan tour but I can assure you that I will be in Toronto. I will be there for a fight and I will use all of these unfortunate circumstances to fuel the fire that burns inside this champion. Kevin… nothing will stop me from destroying you on May 12th in Toronto. Car accident, rib injury, plane crash… nothing will stop me from slaying your onslaught you fat pig. I am a true champion with honor and integrity. A true athlete. Good will prevail over evil and I promise you that.” Richards will be going into one of the biggest fights of his life with 100% focus despite everything going against him. It is uncertain what the outcome of Richards vs. Steen will be, but what is certain is that this will be a match that will go down in the history of professional wrestling!
