The main event that has major implications heading into Best In The World ’15: Battle of The Belts:
ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY BRISCOE & “MR ROH” RODERICK STRONG VS MOOSE & “UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN!
ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe walks around with a constant target on his back. He has signed on to team with Strong knowing that his partner and 2 opponents will all be vying to become the #1 contender for his ROH World Championship at Best in The World ’15. Can Briscoe trust Strong? Roddy has done some very questionable things in his past which could make one wary. The awesome forces of the unstoppable Moose and the loose cannon Elgin means a lot of trouble for Briscoe and Strong. This unique main event will be a spectacle that could have lasting effects heading into BITW ’15.
NON-TITLE: ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE ADDICTION VS #REBORN MATT SYDAL & DELIRIOUS
The Addiction, Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian shocked the world recently by defeating reDRagon to become the ROH World Tag Team Champions. They also revealed themselves, along with Chris Sabin, to be the voices behind the Knights of The Rising Dawn propaganda. They have the tag team division of ROH on edge, fearing that an attack could come at any time. That mental edge makes them very dangerous. They will face off against a team that for the most part are mentally unshakable. Sydal and Delirious actually broke into professional wrestling in the St. Louis area nearly 15 years ago. Some say Sydal is the only man who can understand the dialect in which Delirious speaks. Could that be the key to greatness for these two? This homecoming could be very special for this dynamic duo! Could Sydal & Delirious avoid mind games and defeat the champions or will The Addiction be able to handle the unpredictable duo?
NON-TITLE: ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION JAY LETHAL
w/ TRUTH MARTINI VS RAYMOND ROWE
Jay Lethal needs to be ready for Best in The World ’15 as he has the biggest match of his career coming up against Jay Briscoe, when both put their respective championships on the line. Facing off against Raymond Rowe could definitely put Lethal’s well being in jeopardy. Rowe is an intense, hard hitting monster capable of ending conflict with impact at anytime. Truth Martini may have made a bad choice in signing the contract for this one. Rowe is one half of War Machine and that could mean the tag team mindset is prevalent. Lethal is one of the best singles wrestlers in the world right now and has everything to lose! Can Lethal stay healthy and score a win here?
THE KINGDOM’S MATT TAVEN w/MARIA KANELLIS VS HANSON
These two superstars have similar roots, breaking into professional wrestling together. They have, however, taken very different routes to get to where they are. Taven a former ROH World Television Champion and has proven himself as a great singles star. Most recently as part of The Kingdom with Michael Bennett, he has gained tag team stardom. The duo are the current IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions. Hanson, as part of War Machine, has been climbing the tag team ranks in Ring of Honor. He is no stranger to singles action as he proved by winning the 2014 Top Prospect Tournament. He has also scored major wins over a litany of top ROH stars. Hanson has a chance to send a message to The Kingdom with a win here. Taven can do the same with a victory. This will be a true clash of styles that you will not want to miss.
THE KINGDOM’S MICHAEL BENNETT w/MARIA KANELLIS VS DALTON CASTLE
Dalton Castle is making his Collinsville debut against perhaps one of the hottest wrestlers on the planet in Michael Bennett. Bennett is currently one half of the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions along with Matt Taven. The duo have faced and defeated a who’s who of tag teams in ROH and Japan recently. Maria Kanellis will have her husband ready! The devious mastermind will have her hands full when developing a game plan for the unique Castle. Dalton is unlike anyone in Ring of Honor. The flash, the style, the double tough in ring style are all part of his brilliance. Can Castle defeat the red-hot Bennett? Can Bennett contain the “24/7 Party”?
THE DECADE’S ADAM PAGE w/ BJ WHITMER VS MARK BRISCOE
Adam Page is turning a lot heads recently. BJ Whitmer is showing that his faith in Page’s future being bright was dead on. Page is a gifted athlete that has developed a mean streak a mile wide and this makes Whitmer very happy. Mark Briscoe is coming into Collinsville needing eyes in the back of his head, not just for Whitmer, but for The House of Truth. The H.O.T. are on a mission to rid ROH of both Briscoes and this spells trouble. If Mark is not careful, he could lose and lose bad here. Is really hard to find good and cheap a style=”text-decoration: none;” href=”https://www.theguardian.com/fashion/2015/nov/28/beauty-mens-christmas-gifts-grooming”>christmas presents for men these days.Both of these guys are coming in to make an example of the other.
SILAS YOUNG VS CHEESEBURGER
“The Last Real Man” may be misunderstood. Does he really hate everything or is he just playing mind games? Cheeseburger is a cult favorite who makes no bones about how happy he is! These two are about as opposite as can be. Cheeseburger is going to need to use his guile, his speed and his brains in order to combat the unorthodox offense of Young. Silas wants to destroy everything in front of him and this could spell real physical trouble for the Burger!
