A familiar face returns on DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR weekend! In Milwaukee and Chicago Ridge, ADAM PEARCE will be in action - at the special request of The Decade. Roderick Strong, BJ Whitmer, and Jimmy Jacobs have spent months spreading the idea that they've been disrespected and under-appreciated in ROH. As the backbone of the company, THEY should be getting title shots and opportunities - not a bunch of young upstarts who haven't earned it yet. Most of the ROH roster has stood up for themselves and their own accomplishments.
But other young members of the ROH roster have been more easily influenced. Tadarius Thomas and Adam Page have aligned with The Decade, serving as their water fetching, towel carrying "young boys" and occasional tag partners. Both have had moments where they seemed frustrated with their treatment, but in the end they swear they're happy to learn from their veterans and do things "the right way."
Apparently, that's not enough for The Decade.
BJ Whitmer and Jimmy Jacobs have been less than happy with the "progress" of Thomas and Page. According to them, the young boys aren't learning proper respect fast enough. More importantly, they are disgusted by the flashes of frustration slipping through the cracks in The Decade. In the eyes of Whitmer and Jacobs, merely associating with these ROH veterans is a privilege for Thomas and Page - and they aren't being shown the proper gratitude.
So they called up an old friend: Adam Pearce.
The 5 time NWA Champion knows a thing or two about old school, old fashioned traditions. This weekend, he will take on each Decade young boy one-on-one! On August 22nd, Tadarius Thomas steps into the ring with Pearce. And in Chicago Ridge, Adam Page gets his shot at "Scrap Iron"! What's going through the minds of Thomas and Page right now? Is it more respectful to bow your head and take whatever Pearce dishes out? Or is this finally their chance to stand up from themselves and fight back?
