As Strong exited the ring, the fans paid tribute to “Mr. ROH” by chanting, “Thank you, Roddy.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">In a wild, Tornado Rules six-man match, The Bullet Club’s Adam Cole and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) beat Moose and War Machine (Raymond Rowe and Hanson).</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After The Young Bucks hit the 5-Star Meltzer Driver on Moose, they gave Cole the privilege of scoring the winning pinfall.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">ROH World Tag Team Champions The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) defeated The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) to retain their title, thanks to an assist from an unlikely source.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">During the match, Kamaitachi came down to ringside and started a fight with New Japan Pro Wrestling Young Lion Jay White, who was seated in the front row.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">While the referee was distracted by the brawl between Kamaitachi and White on the floor, Daniels took out Shelley with a low blow. Shortly thereafter, The Addiction hit The Best Meltzer Ever on Saban for the win.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After the match, Kamaitachi celebrated with The Addiction. What is Kamaitachi’s issue with White? Why has he joined forced with The Addiction? Stay tuned.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">In what was perhaps the most violent, sadistic bloodbath in ROH history, BJ Whitmer defeated Steve Corino in the ultimate Fight Without Honor, but Whitmer didn’t do it alone.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">Corino, who had one of his front teeth knocked out early in the match, and Whitmer were both bleeding profusely when the lights suddenly went out.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">When they came back on, one of the most wicked men ever in pro wrestling, Kevin Sullivan, was standing in the ring. Sullivan drove his golden spike into Corino’s head, and Whitmer followed with an exploder suplex for the win.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">ROH World Television Champion Bobby Fish successfully defended his title with a hard-fought victory over Dalton Castle.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">Castle appeared to be on the verge of winning his first championship in ROH after he suplexed Fish on his head and then set up for The Bang-A-Rang. Fish, however, countered Castle’s finisher and turned it into a pinning combination for the win.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">The All Night Express (Rhett Titus and Kenny King) came out to the stage along with “The Minister of Information” Caprice Coleman. The trio announced that they will now be referred to as The Cabinet, and claimed they would make wrestling great again,</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">In The Biggest Rematch in ROH History, a bout that was one year in the making, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal defeated Jay Briscoe to prove once again that he truly is the best in the world.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">It looked as if Briscoe was going to become the first three-time ROH World Champion after he hit a Lethal Injection/Jay Driller combination, but Lethal somehow managed to kick out.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">Lethal later hit a top-rope cutter and followed with the Lethal Injection for the victory.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After the epic encounter, Lethal and Briscoe shook hands.</div><div style="font-size: 14px;

The New Zealand native makes his much-anticipated debut in the United States at Ring of Honor’s national television taping on Saturday in Concord, N.C. This is the first installment of a three-part series on the NJPW Young Lion.</i></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">In January 2013, 20-year-old Jay White was living on the small island of Guernsey in the English Channel when he packed up all of his belongings and took the ferry across to Portsmouth, England.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White did not have a place to stay in Portsmouth, nor did he know anyone.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“All I knew was that there was a pro wrestling training school there,” he said.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">And so began White’s pursuit of his dream to become a professional wrestler.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“I didn’t tell anyone that my plan was to become a wrestler,” White said. “It’s kind of a crazy idea to go and do that.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White started training with Varsity Pro Wrestling, where he learned the ropes from VPW owner Thomas Jones. Jones, who wrestles as The U.K Kid and received his training from wrestling legends Shawn Michaels and Dory Funk Jr., has broken a number of British wrestling stars into the sport.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">The athletic White, who had a background in sports such as rugby, soccer, cricket and tennis, proved to be a quick learner inside the ring.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White appeared on about 15 shows a year for VPW in Portsmouth and the surrounding areas. He gained further experience by competing on All Star Wrestling events throughout England, in addition to wrestling on a number of shows in France for Catch WS.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">A little over a year after he began training, White crossed paths with NJPW star Prince Devitt. It turned out to be a life-altering moment for White.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Devitt wrestled on three VPW shows and also conducted a seminar with the trainees. In one his matches with the promotion, he joined forces with White in a tag team match.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White made a positive impression on Devitt, who gave White his card and told him to keep in touch.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Shortly thereafter, NJPW star and founding member of The Bullet Club Bad Luck Fale contacted White to tell him that Devitt had talked about him to NJPW officials. Fale, who had played rugby in New Zealand before becoming a pro wrestler, said that he would try to get White into NJPW if he was interested.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Needless to say, White was very interested in joining of of the biggest and best pro wrestling promotions in the world.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Several months later, Devitt and Fale came to England to appear on a Revolution Pro Wrestling event, so White hopped on a train to London to meet up with them.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White ended up hanging out with the two of them as well as NJPW star Shinsuke Nakamura.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“We all went out for a few beers, and from there I kept in touch with Fale,” White said. “Next thing you know, I was getting a visa sorted and had a spot in the NJPW Dojo.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none"><i>Part 2 of Introducing Jay White will focus on his experience at the NJPW Dojo.

Quite frankly, I am disturbed that this match is even happening and I am deeply concerned that ROH doesn't realize what will happen when these two meet. Knowing these two men I fear for both their safety and their sanity.</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;">Growing up with Steve was never “easy”.I have seen him in his darkest moments and, while I love my brother, I can't help but wonder his selfishness and his former ways have finally caught up to him. Karma, if you will. He has grown into a dedicated family man but the flaws remain beneath the surface. Why, Steve, did you have to cast the first stone?</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;">And Whitmer...well, few people outside of wrestling know BJ like I do. He was one of my best friends, my stable mate, my traveling companion. We have seen each other at our proverbial rock bottoms. In fact, I credit BJ with saving me from myself when the pills consumed me. But this BJ, the BJ who crushed my sweet nephew Colby on tv again and again, the BJ who caused my young daughter to cry and fear him when she saw him attack Colby, the BJ who stalked my sister in law, Jordan, and innocent baby nephew, Beckham. I DO NOT &nbsp;recognize that man.</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;">What I do know is that Ring of Honor, my first home, and Concord, NC. have no idea what they have signed on for. I fear this will not stop at pain, at blood, at even a bell. This will not end until one or both of them are completely and utterly destroyed.</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Thu, 23 Jun 2016 13:19:38 +0000 ROH Wrestling 381206 at http://www.rohwrestling.com THE VIOLENT HISTORY OF FIGHT WITHOUT HONOR MATCHES http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/violent-history-fight-without-honor-matches <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/steen-generico">Steen - Generico</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-size: 15.600000381469727px;">One of the things that has always set Ring of Honor apart from other pro wrestling promotions is the Code of Honor, which encourages competitors to shake hands before and after their match.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Sometimes, however, issues become so personal that displays of mutual respect and traditional wrestling matches are replaced by raging hatred and anything-goes wars.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">The latter is what Fight Without Honor matches are all about.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">This Friday at the Best in the World pay-per-view, longtime enemies Steve Corino and BJ Whitmer will settle their issues once and for all in an unsanctioned Fight Without Honor that promises to be the most violent and intense match in ROH history.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">The first Fight Without Honor was between Samoa Joe and Low Ki and took place in 2002 during ROH’s initial year in existence. While the no-countout, no-disqualification match was incredibly hard-hitting, it would actually be considered tame when compared to many of the Fight With Honor brawls that would follow.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Subsequent fights were filled with weapons, brutality and bloodshed.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">One of the greatest rivalries in Bryan Danielson’s ROH career was with Takeshi Morishima, and it culminated in a unforgettable Fight Without Honor in 2008 at Final Battle. In that ferocious and grueling match, Danielson finally exacted his revenge against Morishima after having suffered a detached retina from a punch to the eye by the Japanese star in a match nearly a year and a half prior.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">After best friends Kevin Steen and El Generico turned into bitter enemies, it was inevitable that they would wage war against one another in a Fight Without Honor. Their showdown at Final Battle 2010 set a new standard for violence and hatred within an ROH ring, as Steen put his career on the line against El Generico’s mask.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">In 2014, then-ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe and former champion Adam Cole were consumed not only by their burning desire to be champion, but also by their total disdain for one another. Things came to a head at Final Battle 2014 in a Fight Without Honor that saw Briscoe retain the title and Cole prove that in addition to being a great wrestler, he could hold his own with one of the toughest brawlers in the sport.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Another competitor who used a Fight Without Honor match to show that he’s tougher than he looks is Dalton Castle.

This brings to conclusion an amazing run of success lasting nearly 13 years in Ring of Honor. Immediately after his announcement, Roddy sat down with ROHWrestling.com to provide exclusive quotes for a look back at his tenure with the company.</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: Arial;">It was September 20, 2003 at the Murphy Rec Center in Philadelphia, PA, where it all began in Ring of Honor for Roderick Strong. A young, muscular upstart with movie star looks made his way into the ring and proved immediately that he had the tools to be something very special.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">“After seeing ROH for the first time I immediately went and put “Wrestle for ROH” at the top of my goals. It was everything I wanted as a fan. As a wrestler, I knew getting there and staying there would be a difference maker for my career” said Strong. “As I prepared to walk through the curtain, all I could think was, ‘don’t screw this up!’ Honestly, I felt I was still very young but I couldn’t be more prepared for whatever opportunity I would be given”. Little did anyone know that Roderick Strong would become a stalwart for Ring of Honor over the next decade.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">They say you can measure a true athlete’s greatness by the amount of championships he has held and Strong’s championship resume is befitting a wrestler of his caliber. In 2005, he teamed with Austin Aries to win the ROH World Tag Team Championship. In September of 2010, Roddy ended the 7 month reign of Tyler Black to become the ROH World Champion. In March, 2012 he would defeat Jay Lethal for the ROH World Television Championship to become the 2<span style="font-size: 12px; line-height: normal;">nd</span>&nbsp;ROH Triple Crown Champion. He would capture the ROH World Television Championship once more in October of 2015.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">When asked what winning championships meant to him, Strong said,&nbsp;“The championships I won all carried a different feeling and were amazing for very different reasons. Winning the ROH World Tag Team Titles was something special because I was always a huge fan of tag team wrestling and holding it made me the best. To be considered part of the best tag teams in the world was an honor.&nbsp;The ROH World Championship was something that meant a lot because it was validation from Ring of Honor that all the miles, working through injuries, time lost with my family was not lost. I was in a position where the pressure is at its highest and they knew I could get the job done. Both of my TV title wins came at important points of my career. They helped show not only me, but my peers and the ROH fans my growth as a performer”.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">He added “Believe it or not,&nbsp;when I lost the World title to Eddie Edwards, it was a very special moment for both of us.&nbsp;Looking back, I realized I was happy that I could be a part of a landmark moment for his career. Losing the TV title to Adam Cole also holds a special place in my heart. To see the crowd react the way they did and making him really earn it was awesome.&nbsp;To be a part of their moments is something ROH gave me and I will never forget.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">In the early days of Ring of Honor, fans enjoyed his great matches with likes of Bryan Danielson, CM Punk, Samoa Joe and AJ Styles.&nbsp;“Guys like them were the reason I wanted to come to ROH and why I fell in love with wrestling here. I wanted to go out and be tested by the best and prove I either had what it takes or not. Every match up was such a great learning experience and made me who I am today.”&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">ROH fans witnessed amazing battles with international stars Shinsuke Nakamura, Hiroshi Tanahashi and “the Rainmaker” Kazuchika Okada. “I was fired up at the opportunity to show&nbsp;the world, no matter who they are and where they are from that I can go toe to toe with them. I pride myself on being able to work with anyone and any style so it was nice to be able to do that.”</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;">More recent wars with ROH World Television Champion Bobby Fish and ROH World Champion Jay Lethal really showed that Strong continued to operate on an elite level. “Fish is a warrior and someone I respect immensely, not just as a personality, but also a performer and beating&nbsp;Jay Lethal for my second Television title was the beginning of the next chapter of my career. It showed the world that I wasn't going anywhere for a very long time and it showed the growth in me as a performer. Those matches with Jay are very special to me.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">When asked about why he stayed with ROH as long as he did, Strong said “ROH was everything great about wrestling to me, getting the most talented people together to push each other and come up with super-unique and interesting things to make the product stand out. They gave me my first real chance to grow and had the confidence in letting me fail or succeed. ROH will always mean the world to me.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">ROH fans have had a love/hate relationship and at times, they truly loved to hate him.&nbsp; What can never be lost is Roddy’s appreciation the fans. He doesn’t have an "off button" or know how to take it easy. Roderick Strong is truly a once-in-a-lifetime athlete that Ring of Honor and its fans have been blessed to have witnessed for nearly the past 13 years.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Strong concluded, “I want to be able to personally thank everyone, from the new fans that just found ROH, to the fans that have followed me from the beginning. Ring of Honor is more than just a company to me. It's my family, I started as 20-year-old kid just looking for an opportunity to learn and grow as a performer. Now I stand here after 12 and a half years loving it just as much, if not more than when I came in. I want to thank you&nbsp;for your patience as you watched me grow over time.&nbsp;I want to thank you for the cheers, the boos and the passion you showed me.&nbsp;Most importantly I want to thank you personally for always supporting the greatest company in the world, Ring of Honor.&nbsp;I hope to see everyone this Saturday in Concord”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Join us Saturday in Concord, North Carolina at the Cabarrus Arena as Ring of Honor bids farewell to the one and only, “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong.</div> Wed, 22 Jun 2016 22:44:48 +0000 ROH Wrestling 381061 at http://www.rohwrestling.com DIJAK vs KINCAID signed for Saturday in Concord, NC http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/dijak-vs-kincaid-signed-saturday-concord-nc <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Saturday, June 25th - Concord, NC 6pm Bell Time </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/tv-taping-0">TV TAPING</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Ring of Honor's biggest event of the summer is just days away when BEST IN THE WORLD 2016 comes to North Carolina!&nbsp; Charlotte is an historic, legendary hotbed for professional wrestling and this year BEST IN THE WORLD will be headlined by the biggest rematch in ROH history when World Champion JAY LETHAL defends his title against his greatest rival, JAY BRISCOE!&nbsp;</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;">But the very next night on June 25th, ROH presents another huge night of the best professional wrestling on the plant, all taped for Ring of Honor TV!&nbsp; There's no telling what fallout will come from the pay-per-view the night before.&nbsp; We might have all new champions because every title is on the line!&nbsp; This is a massive weekend in Concord and you won't want to miss it.&nbsp; Just signed for June 25th:</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">DONOVAN DIJAK w/PRINCE NANA vs. “THE GIFT” JASON KINCAID</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;">Perhaps no one Ring of Honor star has been as affected by Bullet Club than Donovan Dijak. After making a loud and clear statement in West Warwick, RI, hitting Feast Your Eyes on ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, Dijak looked ready put an exclamation mark on that statement in Toronto. With an opportunity to pick up the biggest victory of his career, the Young Bucks superkicked Dijak while aiming for Lethal.</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;">Dijak has not forgotten about to systematically destroy the House of Truth one-by-one. But his blood thirst for Lethal will have to be sent to the back of his mind in Concord as he has signed a match to face the self-professed master of “Technical Wizardry” Jason Kincaid!</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;">ROH fans may remember “The Gift” from his debut in the 2016 Top Prospect Tournament. The man who grew up with no running water with his grandmother in West Virginia comes to Ring of Honor with more questions than answers. The enigmatic Kincaid wowed fans in Collinsville and Indianapolis earlier in June with innovative offense but will have a tough task ahead of him in the 6’7” Dijak.</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;">On paper, the master of innovative moves and mind games Kincaid seemingly has an opportunity to take advantage of an emotionally vulnerable Dijak. But a simple tale of the tape reveals a size differential that favors the former two-sport collegiate star.</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 first time match-up will take place in the fallout of Best in the World at our national television taping – there is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-you-face action only Ring of Honor delivers and you can be the FIRST to see this great match!

After making his debut in New Japan Pro-Wrestling at Honor Rising, Dalton Castle vanquished “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Man” Silas Young in a Fight Without Honor in Las Vegas and is riding one of Ring of Honor’s longest-active winning streaks, picking up those victories on some of the biggest stages in front of some of the biggest crowds in ROH history.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">Arguably his biggest win came in a Four Corners Survival Match at Global Wars.

In multi-man matches in Collinsville and Indianapolis, Strong once again fell victim to not figuring in the decision in multi-man matches but made up for it in Columbus. In the Buckeye State, the former Triple Crown Champion scored a rare pinfall victory over Jay Briscoe in their first meeting in over five years! Strong has the wind to his back and believes he is the rightful challenger to the ROH World Television Champion.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';">But who will be the champion the night after Best in the World?
