SOARING EAGLE CUP ROUND 1
ROH WORLD CHAMPION “THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. “ALMIGHTY” CHRISTOPHER DANIELS
For 15 years, Christopher Daniels was a name synonymous with Ring of Honor’s past, present, and future. After competing in the very first Ring of Honor event, Daniels innovative style, work ethic, and hunger to never stop delivering his best effort won him the adoration of millions of fans around the globe. In 2017, Daniels reached a career pinnacle – for the first time in the 15 year existence of ROH, and for the first time in his 26 year career, Daniels capture the World Championship.
But the fans that helped provide the extra spark needed to capture the title soon were cheering the man that stood across the ring from him at Best in the World. “The American Nightmare” Cody would defeat Daniels to cheers from the Lowell, MA crowd. The following night, Daniels went on a tirade, leading to fines and suspension from television time. The angry and betrayed Daniels challenged Cody to a 2 out of 3 falls rematch. Cody accepted and defeated Daniels in two straight falls.
But, something is different inside Daniels. Daniels, and his partner in the Addiction, Frankie Kazarian, are driven by a mutual distaste for fans, racking up record fines for lewd comments and crude gestures. These feelings have also unlocked an urge to do whatever it takes to deny ROH fans what they like so much about The Best Wrestling on the Planet!
At Soaring Eagle, Daniels and Cody meet one more time, with Daniels pledging to begin to take out Bullet Club, starting with the World Champion! The title is not on the line but the ROH Board of Directors are watching Cody’s matches closely to determine contenders as ROH moves towards Final Battle!
Who will pick up the victory in this match between the current and former ROH World Champion? Join us to find out!
