MILWAUKEE & CHICAGO RIDGE GET READY!!!

HUGH RAISING THE BAR UPDATE
Ring of Honor's RAISING THE BAR weekend will be packed full of ROH stars and exciting matches. We are less than 2 weeks away from 2 huge nights of the best professional on wrestling on the planet! 
 
RAISING THE BAR Night One
"Knockout Artist" Chris Hero vs. Roderick Strong
 
In Chicago Ridge, Chris Hero will take on ROH World Champion Adam Cole in a grueling Ringmaster's Challenge match. But before that, on March 7th in Milwaukee, he has to survive one of the hardest hitting, most agressivive men in ROH: Roderick Strong.
 
Roderick Strong is a former Ring of Honor world champion, but that hasn't stopped him from feeling his ROH legacy has been under appreciated in favor of less well-traveled athletes and those who have used "his" company as a "stepping stone." Chris Hero, on the other hand, has been welcomed back to ROH by the fans with monstrous ovations.  
 
The Decade are not happy with the fanfare that Hero has received since returning as they are the ones who made sure that Hero lost his first match back. In Nashville at the start of the year, Kevin Steen defeated Hero after the Decade interfered in an effort to keep Hero away from the title scene due to "principle". The Decade made a statement with Hero back in January and this is Hero's first chance at redemption.
 
Will Chris Hero "earn" a handshake from The Decade? All of this simmering animosity and resentment will definitely fuel the intensity of this match. Roderick Strong and Chris Hero are 2 of the hardest strikers not just in ROH but all of professional wrestling. Be there live! For tickets to Night One, click HERE.
 
RAISING THE BAR Night Two
Outlaw Inc. vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe
 
Eddie Kingston and Homicide have returned to Ring of Honor after being suspended due to their unacceptable actions at Final Battle. Now that they're back, they've taken their usual chaotic violence and mayhem to another level. 
 
On March 8th in Chicago Ridge, Outlaw Inc. takes on two ROH originals: Jay and Mark Briscoe! The brothers from Sandy Fork are always looking for a fight. While they've recently been more focused on singles competition, anytime The Briscoes reunite is trouble for their opponents. 
 
Kingston and Homicide haven't revealed all of their agenda, but they claim to be adding to their numbers. Will they attempt to recruit in Chicago?
