Now that the dust has settled regarding TNA and Kenny King, Ring of Honor (ROH) is free to look toward the future and the rest of 2012.

They've got the first round of the just announced tag team tournament beginning at their TV tapings at the beginning of the next month which will also featuring a World Championship match between Kevin Steen and former titleholder Homicide.

But first, they had a stop over in Milwaukee, WI this past weekend.

So how did everything go down?

In the opener, former All Night Expresser Rhett Titus defeated Mike Sydal but it wouldn't be the latest time the ROH Wrestling Academy graduate would appear. Jay Lethal and former Spirit Squad member Mike Mondo went at it next with the former World TV Champion coming out on top.

An Ohio Valley Wrestling six-man tag team showcase came next which was followed by Kyle O'Reilly defeating Tadarius Thomas by submission. Newly-usurped TV champ Roderick Strong beat ROH veteran B.J. Whitmer with the help of Truth Martini and his Book of Truth.

Michael Elgin defeated Silas Young and again irked his manager, Martini, by shaking his opponent's hand after the match. JUST PULL THE TRIGGER ON IT ALREAY, GEEZ. Oh, and Rhino beat out Eddie Edwards in a Border Wars rematch. Did Martini just chill out ringside during the three match stretch?

And in the main event, "Dem Boys" The Briscoes defeated the team of World Champion Kevin Steen and Jimmy Jacobs when Jay Brischoe planted Jacobs with a Jay Driller.

After the match, Steen tried to attack Jay but Titus came out to make the save and then said he spent four years trying to get the tag team titles. Now that he accomplished that goal, he's gunning for Steen's strap.

Steen/Titus? What do you think, Cagesiders?
