ROH World Title Match Official For Ft. Lauderdale

The Road to Final Battle goes through Florida as Ring of Honor Elite comes to Fort Lauderdale on Saturday, November 11! The night will be centered around the event’s namesake, The Elite, the trio of IWGP United States Champion Kenny Omega and two-thirds of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks but will also feature all of your favorite stars like ROH World Television Champion Kenny King, Jay Lethal, Dalton Castle, Best Friends, The Addiction, and more!

The ROH World Champion “The American Nightmare” Cody has a blanket open challenge and on social media promised he would be defending the ROH World Championship in Ft. Lauderdale, Lakeland, San Antonio, Dallas, and Oklahoma City. An international star, a legendary Jr. Heavyweight who is no stranger to wars with Bullet Club has stepped up and made the challenge for Ft. Lauderdale.

The challenge has been accepted and the contract signed!

ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP

ROH WORLD CHAMPION “THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. ROCKY ROMERO

There have been many things written about “The American Nightmare” Cody since winning the ROH World Championship at Best in the World. The one thing that may not be written enough is his willingness to defend the ROH World Championship. In just under five months as World Champion, Cody has amassed 12 official defenses at ROH World Champion with countless more in matches not officially sanctioned by the ROH Board of Directors.

While some have questioned the caliber of opponents such as ROH favorite Cheeseburger, others are quick to note Cody has beaten the likes of Christopher Daniels, Minoru Suzuki, KUSHIDA, and more. And in Ft. Lauderdale, at ROH Elite, he goes one on one against a legendary competitor that has come inches away from capturing the championship before, after answering an open challenge issued through Twitter!

The ROH Board of Directors deliberated, the Champ accepted, and the match is now official for ROH Elite!

Rocky Romero is a three-time ROH World Tag Team Champion, an eight-time IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, a IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion, and a three-time CMLL World Super Lightweight Champion. With credentials tried and true, many had written off Romero off following Beretta becoming a heavyweight in NJPW and teaming with Chuckie T. in ROH and Romero successfully leading Roppongi 3K, the former Temprua Boyz, to their first IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships.

But the man who came within an eyelash of defeating Samoa Joe in 2004 and Bryan Danielson in 2005 has answered the open challenge! In a first-time, one-on-one bout, the war between Bullet Club and CHAOS continues with the richest prize in Ring of Honor on the line when Rocky Romero gets his first shot at the ROH World Championship in 12 years!

Will Cody win his 13th official defense or will a legend capture one of the few championships that has eluded him? Who will win this first-time bout in the Sunshine State and leave ROH Elite the ROH World Champion? Join us to find out!

There is nothing like the hard-hitting, in-your-face action that only ROH can deliver! Don’t miss your opportunity to see the stars of ROH LIVE when The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to the Sunshine State with ROH Elite!
