DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR is an ROH tradition and one of the biggest shows of the year! But we weren't sure who would challenge for the ROH World Title...until now!
"Unbreakable" Michael Elgin has made it his mission to be the most competitive champion in the history of Ring of Honor. He has issued an open challenge to all former champions. He has pushed ROH match maker Nigel McGuinness to consider everyone on the roster a potential contender. But one man still feels he's being overlooked.
Tommaso Ciampa is obsessed with the idea that he should have been world champion at BEST IN THE WORLD '14. In his view, his title match against then-champion Adam Cole weeks before had a clear winner: Tommaso Ciampa. He should have won the title that night and gone on to BEST IN THE WORLD as champion.
But thanks to the interference of The Kingdom, Adam Cole retained the championship and - in the eyes of Ciampa - the "Sicilian Psychopath" has been overlooked ever since. After all, Elgin hasn't asked HIM to challenge for the title while he's issuing all these other invitations.
The obsession has grown and grown as he watches other athletes awarded title opportunities. Finally, Tommaso Ciampa had enough. He has demanded Nigel McGuinness make the match:
Elgin vs. Ciampa...for the ROH World Championship!
Elgin and Ciampa faced each other at BEST IN THE WORLD 2013. The match was an instant contender for match of the year and immediately fans started buzzing about the possibility of a rematch.
A little over a year later, the match has been set for DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR in Chicago Ridge on August 23rd! Except this time the intensity will be even more pronounced because the title is on the line!
