The voice of ROH's iPPV's joined The Big Mosh & "The Chairman of the Board" Todd Vincent for the return of his exclusive segment on Monday Night Mayhem, "Ring of Honor On the Road," which is now available in Windows Streaming Media or via the official MNM Podcast on iTunes:

What fans can expect for Eddie Edwards' next defense of the ROH World Championship at "ROH Revolution: Canada" in Toronto, Ontario vs. Chris Hero: "I called a recent match that Chris Hero had with TJ Perkins, and that gave me some insight into what we are going to see in this match. It started with both men on their feet, with some chain wrestling that was back & forth and very even. When Perkins tried to quicken the pace, Hero stayed with him step for step until Hero came victorious, due to his powerful strikes. While I think Edwards & Hero can be a similar match, I think that Eddie Edwards brings different dynamics to the match than TJ Perkins did, but I think it might be the same kind of attack."
What Jay Lethal can bring to Ring of Honor when he returns at next month's "Best In The World 2011" iPPV next month in New York City: "I think for Jay Lethal, the world is his oyster. When he was last with the company, he was 21 years old. Now, he's a 26-year-old man, and he's going to be given every opportunity to go out there an prove that he is more than just some sideshow dressing up like a senior citizen. If Jay Lethal wants to prove the critics, naysayers, & those who saw and painted him in a certain light in TNA wrong, he is going to have every avenue to do that under the three letters he knows so well, and that's ROH."
