Strong was initially signed to team with ROH World &amp; World Television Champion Jay Lethal &amp; Moose to take on Former ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe, “The 24/7 Party” Dalton Castle &amp; Kyle O’Reilly.&nbsp;&nbsp;Ring of Honor is allowing Strong top honor his commitment to perform in the United Kingdom.</span></div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness has been feverishly responding to texts, calls and emails from various ROH stars who want the chance to take part in special main event.&nbsp;&nbsp;Who would you like to see replace Roderick Strong? Could it be The Kingdom’s Adam Cole? As a former ROH World Champion, he certainly has the resume to be deserving of this opportunity. Could one of the competitors from the tournament to determine the #1 Contender to the ROH World Television Title step out and jump into this spot? Could a New Japan superstar be returning?

War! War! That’s what the fans in attendance at Field of Honor will see&nbsp;on Saturday&nbsp;Night&nbsp;August 22! War Machine, Raymond Rowe &amp; Hanson, will finally get their much talked about rematch with Pro Wrestling Noah GHC Tag Team Champions &amp; NWA World Tag Team Champions, The Killer Elite Squad: Davey Boy Smith Jr &amp; Lance Archer.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The issues with War Machine and K.E.S. date back to Michael Elgin bringing in the K.E.S. in to destroy War Machine this past April. The highly anticipated match between saw destruction, chaos and was as hard hitting as speculated. The two teams brought enough carnage that night that the referee had to declare the match a 'no contest.' This left not only the ROH fans wanting more, but also the both K.E.S. and War Machine wanting more. Well, want no more!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The K.E.S. and War Machine have unfinished business. This match will not feature glitz or glamour.&nbsp; This will not be about trading holds and trying to outdo each other. This match will be pure unadulterated violence and brutality. This will be about one team trying to win a war! War Machine still covets a chance at the GHC Tag Team Championships. K.E.S. are tired of hearing fans bring up War Machine! They are tired of hearing the comparisons and are looking to end it in Brooklyn!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Will Coney Island witness the extinction of War Machine or the annihilation of the K.E.S.?&nbsp;&nbsp;Can Brooklyn contain the force of these two teams hell bent on destroying the other? Be there on&nbsp;August 22&nbsp;to witness the next stage in an epic war.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Previously Announced...</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">FIRST TIME EVER</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">THE BRISCOES vs THE TIME SPLITTERS (KUSHIDA &amp; ALEX SHELLY)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION KAZUCHIKA "RAINMAKER" OKADA vs "MR ROH" RODERICK STRONG</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Also signed to appear...</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Also Signed To Appear...</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ROH World &amp; Television Champion: Jay Lethal W/ Truth Martini</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ROH World Tag Team Champions: The Addiction (Christopher Daniels &amp; Frankie Kazarian)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Shinsuke Nakamura</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly &amp; Bobby Fish)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">War Machine (Ray Rowe &amp; Hanson)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Michael Elgin</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">ACH</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Adam Cole</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Kingdom (Matt Taven &amp; Michael Bennett) w/ Maria Kanellis</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Roppongi Vice (Rocky Romero &amp; Beretta)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Young Bucks (Matt &amp; Nick Jackson)</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Matt Sydal</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Moose w/ Stokely Hathaway</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Donovan Dijak w/ Truth Martini</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Cedric Alexander w/ Veda Scott</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Adam Page w/ BJ Whitmer</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Dalton Castle w/ The Boys</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Silas Young</div> Tue, 07 Jul 2015 15:58:00 +0000 ROH Wrestling 288726 at http://www.rohwrestling.com The New Champ Speaks & A Huge 6 Man Tag on Destination America Tomorrow Night http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/new-champ-speaks-huge-6-man-tag-destination-america-tomorrow-night <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Wednesday 8/7c! </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/rohonda1981">ROHonDA1981</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Destination America&nbsp;this Wednesday&nbsp;night at&nbsp;8:00 pm&nbsp;EDT/7:00 pm CDT.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><iframe frameborder="0" height="360" scrolling="no" src="https://www.youtube.com/embed/Cd7Ecw_EJko" width="640"></iframe></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">This week on Ring of Honor Television you will witness the fall out of Ring of Honor's epic Pay Per View, Best in The World '15: Battle of The Belts!

With whispers of dissension in The Kingdom, it will be interesting to see how they all get along in this match. &nbsp;reDRagon and Michael Elgin are coming off losses of their own and desperately need to get back on the winning side of things. Can The Queen, Maria Kanellis, keep The Kingdom together and lead them to a much needed win? Or is the technique of reDRagon and the amazing strength of Elgin too much for the embattled trio?

Strong walked into “Best in the World” holding one of the best won/lost records in ROH in 2015 and defeated Moose and “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin to become the #1 Contender for the ROH World Championship.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">After defeating “The Phenomenal” AJ Styles this past weekend, Kazuchika Okada is now a 3 time IWGP Heavyweight Champion. He is a two-time G1 Climax Tournament winner. In fact he is the youngest winner in that prestigious tournament’s history. Okada will come into Field of Honor fresh off competing in his 4th&nbsp;G1 Climax tournament. For those unfamiliar, the G1 Climax is 20 man tournament spread out across 19 events and is without a doubt one of the most physically grueling tournaments in wrestling! Okada will need to be as healthy as possible coming into this battle with Strong. He will be facing one of the hottest wrestlers today, one that is hungry and looking for every opportunity to prove he is the very best. This dream match is one that will leave the world talking!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal;

Both countries show you shouldn’t judge the path taken to get to the end result.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The same can be said about “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin, who has turned a corner of late and is prepping for a huge challenge, a personal goal in his career. He has made definite changes that many say has him better than ever. But, just as both Canada and the US have dealt with conflict and revolution over time to get where they are today, the internal battle within Elgin that has been publicly scrutinized since last September may finally be over.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">With Ring of Honor next scheduled for Minneapolis next weekend, I wanted to write a special “View From Ringside” to share my thoughts and observations on the former ROH World Champion as he prepares to compete in the G-1 Climax Tournament for New Japan Pro Wrestling (NJPW). Elgin is the first former ROH World Champion and first full-time ROH Roster member to compete in the G-1 but as of a few months ago, there were many questions surrounding the “Unbreakable One”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“What has changed within Elgin” or “what has changed about everyone’s perception of Elgin” are two distinct questions. With Elgin, it has never been about strength or ability in the ring as he has both in abundance. But in the last three months on 2014, his peers and I thought we were watching a guy throw his whole career away.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">After dropping the ROH World Championship in September, 2014, I believe now we publicly saw a man who was dealing with a lot of personal stress and he reacted poorly. When you get married, relocate to the US, buy a home and become the ROH World Champion/face of the company in the span of a few months, it can be overwhelming. It’s called “good stress” but that is a lot on anyone’s plate.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">In the last few months of 2014, seeming like he was backed into a corner, Elgin reacted the way he did and I thought we were seeing a man throw his whole career down the toilet.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">But sometime between what happened between ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness and him during the “13th Anniversary” main event in March and “War of the Worlds” in May, something changed within Elgin.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Maybe the anger subsided. Maybe the disappointment of the World title loss, while never explainable, became livable.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">I talked to him in San Antonio in April and we talked about his mental game. I also saw him loosening up around some of his peers who have been slow to warm to Elgin. The afternoon before the first “War of the Worlds” event in Philadelphia, Elgin told me about getting back to his 500-pound bench press, eating pasta for the first time in years and I could see that he was back to his old self.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Talk is one thing but when he SHOOK THE HANDS of Moose and Roderick Strong at “Best in the World”, I knew his metamorphosis was complete. Here was Elgin that had a "Punish Everyone" attitude just a few months before, now accepting the rare defeat with grace and maturity. He has earned the respect again of his peers and is poised to accomplish another career goal: competing in Japan.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Many say and I agree that his upcoming New Japan tour has put his perspective and focus in another direction and it is bringing out a better and smarter Michael Elgin. Always a goal of his to wrestle in Japan, Elgin competes in this year’s G-1 Climax tournament and the winner of the tournament is a "made man" in NJPW. There are no fluke winners as it is wrestling’s equivalent to climbing Mt. Everest, a long, grueling test of intestinal fortitude, mental toughness and physical torture.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">The climb for Elgin begins on July 20th. Nineteen events make the 2015 G-1 Climax the longest tournament in NJPW history. Elgin will have to be the best and smartest that he has ever been.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">I also hope Elgin takes a second to step back to reflect on accomplishing his goals. He’s become the ROH World Champion and he will have competed in Japan. I’ll have to ask him what his next goals are because “Mission: Accomplished” on his big two.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">And just as his native and now-home countries celebrate their formation this week, I wanted to take this time to recognize the renaissance of “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin and wish him luck in the G-1.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Yours in Sport,</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">KK</div> Fri, 03 Jul 2015 13:00:00 +0000 ROH Wrestling 288141 at http://www.rohwrestling.com
