Grudge Match Between The Addiction and War Machine Signed for Final Battle

Ring of Honor’s seminal event, FINAL BATTLE, emanates from the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom on Friday December 15 at 9 PM EST! Fans around the world will be watching on Pay Per View, on the Fite.TV app, on ROHWrestling.com, and on Playstation Network as wrestling’s top stars clash with scores to be settled and championships to be decided.

This year’s Final Battle is the 16th in ROH history and will be the best, ever! In the last few weeks, championship matches have been interrupted, the sanctity of the squared circle insulted, fans have been injured, and suspensions levied. For War Machine and the Addiction, the actions have opened old wounds and these two teams head to Final Battle looking for blood!

GRUDGE MATCH

THE ADDICTION (CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & FRANKIE KAZARIAN) VS. WAR MACHINE (RAY ROWE & HANSON)

War Machine earned a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Championships and took on the Motor City Machine Guns for the championships in Philadelphia. With the match, and perhaps the titles, heading their way, the match was interrupted by The Addiction, who not only cost War Machine the match but ruined it for the fans with childish toys like silly string. 

A few weeks later on ROH Television, War Machine was never able to start their match, instead they were attacked by The Addiction. The brawl led to a fan getting hurt with a full-scale investigation leading to a suspension of Ray Rowe that kept him off of ROH Elite and the international television taping in Ft. Lauderdale.

The actions of “Almighty” Christopher Daniels and “The Heavy Metal Rebel” Frankie Kazarian were not done at random, indeed they were deliberate and calculated, done to insert chaos into the ROH World Tag Team Championship picture and also to ruin the experience of ROH fans.

And maybe, just maybe, to cost old foes what is most important to them. 

It was the night after Global Wars 2016 that the Addiction goaded War Machine into their third match in less than 24 hours, including a vicious brawl that saw War Machine finally defeat the Briscoes and then War Machine defeating IWGP Heavyweight Champion Kazuchika Okada and Gedo the very next night. The Addiction, who have christened themselves “The Smartest Men in the Room”, took advantage of the adrenaline and the fearlessness of War Machine, challenged them on the spot, and captured the ROH World Tag Team Titles in Dearborn. 

The issues between The Addiction and War Machine date back over 18 months but The Addiction’s most recent stunts cost War Machine the championships and Ray Rowe a living. These two teams will collide in a huge grudge match at Final Battle!

Every year, Final Battle is the biggest event on the Ring of Honor calendar! Following the fastest sellout in Final Battle history, the only way you can see Final Battle LIVE is by joining ROH on Pay Per View, available on all major Pay Per View providers, ROHWrestling.com, Fite.TV, and Playstation Network on Friday December 15 at 9 PM EST!
