At Glory By Honor XII, Paul London and Roderick Strong battled in a match many were calling an instant classic. Since then, ROH fans have been clamoring for a rematch. We can now confirm that Paul London's opponent in Pittsburgh at Wrestling's Finest will be Roderick Strong! However, this match will be contested under 2 out of 3 falls rules AND the winner will receive an ROH World Championship match just two weeks later in San Antonio.
Roderick Strong's career has very recently taken a turn when at Final Battle he revealed his alliance with Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer. Calling themselves "The Decade," they claim to be the constant soul of Ring of Honor while others have abandoned the company for money and fame. Does Strong also hold a grudge again recently returned "Intergalactic Traveler" Paul London? And will his newfound mission motivate him to beat London in Pittsburgh?
Obviously, Nigel McGuinness was livid after the chaos resulting from the mystery tag match at Final Battle. Not only did BJ Whitmer betray his trust and deceive the fans by lying about his retirement, but The Decade also crashed the celebration of Eddie Edwards. However, this 2 Out of 3 Falls Match had already been signed prior to Final Battle. McGuinness has decided to let Roderick Strong keep this opportunity in Pittsburgh and will explain himself and confront The Decade in Nashville on January 4th. The Decade claims they have been overlooked and under-appreciated for far too long. On January 25th at Wrestling's Finest, Roderick Strong has a chance to become the number one contender and prove his point. But regardless of who wins, this match is a must see for any wrestling fan!
