Kalamazoo, Michigan: get ready for one of the most intriguing rematches of 2015!
ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP – HOUSE of TRUTH BANNED FROM RINGSIDE!
JAY LETHAL (c) vs. “MR ROH” RODERICK STRONG
In an upcoming segment on Ring of Honor television, you will see “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong confront Undisputed ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and his manager, Truth Martini. Strong confronts Lethal and informs him that he can’t run much longer. Strong gave Lethal credit for lasting 60 minutes in their first bout at Death Before Dishonor XIII, but the rematch in Philadelphia, which saw Lethal retain with the help of The H.O.T., did not sit well. Lethal and Martini hang their hat on that victory and feel with contenders like AJ Styles, Michael Elgin and Kyle O’Reilly, Strong is no longer a contender for the ROH World Championship.
Enter ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness, who has considered a #1 contender from a deep pool of challengers for the ROH World Television Championship. The problem with the deep pool is there is no defined #1 contender. After considering Strong’s amazing year so far, combining the year with the 60 minute draw against Lethal and the controversy surrounding the subsequent rematch, McGuinness believes Strong has proven that he is the #1 contender to ROH World Television Championship.
Based on the Strong/Lethal rematch from Ring of Honor Television, which saw Lethal retain after assistance from The House of Truth, McGuinness has also added two special stipulations to the contract of this match: a 30 minute time limit and The House of Truth is BANNED from ringside!
Roderick Strong will now have the chance to do what no one has been able to do in over a year and a half and that’s defeat Jay Lethal with the ROH World Television Championship on the line. There will be no distractions for Strong, which means if Lethal defeats him there will be no excuses or finger pointing.
For Lethal, Strong has been his toughest challenger since becoming dual champion and he’ll be looking to get rid of Strong once and for all here. Truth Martini and The House of Truth will not be allowed at ringside, but one must suspect that they will have something up their sleeves. This is Lethal’s chance to prove bell to bell that he is the very best and needs no help.
After not being able to beat the other in 60 minutes, how does being given a 30 minute time limit affect them? Does it give Lethal the advantage? We know he is capable of going 30 minutes, but will he just attempt to outlast Strong? How does this mentally affect Strong? He couldn’t pin Lethal’s shoulders to the mat with an hour time limit and now that time is cut in half. He will definitely need to up his training to create a pace that catches Lethal off guard.
Can Lethal defeat Strong without help and prove he really is the best wrestler alive? Or can Strong fulfill his destiny of winning a championship in 2015? Kalamazoo, Nigel McGuinness has signed what looks to be the most intriguing rematch of the year – be there to potentially witness history!
