Showdown in the Sun was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by Ring of Honor (ROH) that took place over two consecutive days: Friday, March 30 and Saturday, March 31, 2012 at the War Memorial Auditorium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All three of Ring of Honor's championships were defended throughout the course of the weekend. The ROH World Championship was defended in a three-way match between champion Davey Richards, his former tag team partner Eddie Edwards and their mutual long-term rival Roderick Strong. All three wrestlers were scheduled for a "Blind Destiny" match on the second day, with the winner having to defend the championship against their respective opponent: Michael Elgin, Kevin Steen and Jay Lethal.

ROH World Television Champion Jay Lethal defended his title against Kyle O'Reilly on the first day, while the ROH World Tag Team Championship were defended on the second day, by the Briscoe Brothers (Jay and Mark) against former championsWorld's Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin). Also on the card, The Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) faced the All Night Express (Kenny King and Rhett Titus) in tag team matches on both nights, with differing stipulations. Guest competitors not contracted to Ring of Honor also wrestled in matches over the weekend. Most notably former ROH star and NWA World Heavyweight Champion Adam Pearce, and Fire Ant, who was representing the Chikara promotion (with whom ROH has a talent exchange agreement).
