Ring of Honor's return to Toronto is shaping up to be huge! And you can see it LIVE on iPPV anywhere in the world. We already know that reDRagon will be defending their ROH World Tag Team Titles against The Young Bucks in a 2/3 Falls Match. But we can now confirm the ROH World Title match as well as name an opponent for AJ Styles!
"Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Jay Briscoe
When Jay Briscoe finally won the ROH World Title, it was a huge victory for all of a Ring of Honor. Jay has been here since day one and his success reflects the growth and the legacy of ROH. But Jay's reign was cut short due to a shoulder injury. Eventually, Adam Cole was crowned champion in a tournament - but Jay Briscoe insists he never actually lost the title. And he has yet to be pinned in an ROH ring since he returned.
Now that Michael Elgin has won the championship, he's opened his defenses up to any and all former champions. Jay Briscoe is more than happy to step in and win back the title he claims he never lost! Elgin and Briscoe were just involved in a 4 Way World Title match at FIELD OF HONOR, but Briscoe wasn't involved in the fall. Now Jay Briscoe finally gets his one-on-one title opportunity at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA!
This is a match that not just the men involved have been demanding, but the fans as well. Elgin has sworn to be the most competitive fighting champion in the history of ROH. But in the eyes of Jay Briscoe, that historic ROH World Title lineage has a huge blemish on it - he never lost his belt. And to Jay, Elgin can't call himself the champion until he beats him.
"The Phenomenal" AJ Styles vs. Adam Cole
Current IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles vs. former ROH World Champion Adam Cole! This has been a match everyone has been begging to see from the moment Styles returned to Ring of Honor. Styles and Cole were both participants in the 4 Way Survival title match at FIELD OF HONOR, but this is their first singles encounter! AJ Styles has been making his way through all the top stars of ROH, but he's yet to face one of the fastest ringing stars in the world, Adam Cole.
Cole, meanwhile, has been reshaping his career after losing the World Title, focusing on his new alliance with Michael Bennett and The Kingdom. And that new focus took him all the way to New Japan Pro Wrestling earlier this month, where Styles has been leading the pack. This is a huge match for Adam Cole in terms of international visibility and acclaim. And Styles remains one of the most athletic and exciting pro wrestlers on the entire planet. Some people will term this one a "dream match" and it's all going down on September 6th at the Maple Leaf Gardens!
