Ring of Honor issued the following to us
Night 2 of GLORY BY HONOR XIV just keeps getting bigger! And the ROH tradition of CHAMPIONS VS. ALL STARS returns this year on October 24th. This year, we are coming to you from Dayton, OH for a huge night of your favorite ROH stars, capped off by the Champions vs. All Stars challenge match! In this match, all the current ROH champions unite to form one team. On the other side, the men considered to be the most on-fire athletes in Ring of Honor and some of the top title contenders.
But this massive main event is not even close to all we have lined up for Ring of Honor’s return to Dayton. Head Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has just confirmed another match signed for Dayton, and it will cap off a potentially career-changing GLORY BY HONOR weekend for the current ROH Top Prospect…
– DONOVAN DIJAK w/TRUTH MARTINI vs. “UNBREAKABLE” MICHAEL ELGIN
24 hours removed from his match against AJ Styles, Donovan Dijak squares off against a former ROH champion! Ever since winning the 2015 ROH Top Prospect Tournament, all eyes have been focused on Dijak. It is an enormous amount of pressure, and less talented – and less confident – athletes would have cracked by down. But Donovan Dijak quickly realized that the surest path to success in ROH is surrounding yourself with the good people. Now, virtually no one can make a case that the likes of Truth Martini constitute “good” people, but you also cannot argue against the success of the self-proclaimed managerial sensation.
The House of Truth now holds both the ROH World and Television Championships through Jay Lethal, who himself will represent BOTH titles in the CHAMPIONS VS. ALL STARS battle! Meanwhile, Dijak and J. Diesel have been working together as a tag team, with gold no doubt their ultimate goal. But at GLORY BY HONOR, Dijak flies solo. First, he takes on AJ Styles, in a calculated effort to send the big guns of the HOT to scout and intimidate Styles, the current number one contender to Lethal’s World Championship. Then, the very next night in Dayton, he faces Michael Elgin!
#BigMike returned from an incredible tour of Japan completely reinvigorated. Prior to his stint in NJPW, Elgin seemed unfocused and frustrated. He wanted back into the World Championship picture, but with the talent level in ROH at an all time high, that isn’t a position you can just stumble into. Elgin headed across the globe for the G1 Climax, attaining one of his ultimate goals of competing for NJPW. And while he was there, he turned heads in every single match up. Now the entire professional wrestling world is fully on notice: “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin is better than ever before!
Usually, Elgin can count on his massive size and baffling strength intimidating his opponents before they even step between the ropes. However, he probably shouldn’t be so certain he has this typical advantage over Donovan Dijak. Although he is one of the largest athletes in ROH, he has quickly established himself as among the most agile. More importantly, we’ve yet to see this cocky young star intimidated by anyone – including former champions.
This will be a can’t-miss war between two incredible athletes who both have so much to prove. Dijak needs to step up in the face of the weekend’s challenges in the biggest matches he’s ever had. Meanwhile, Elgin can’t afford to miss a step when it comes to pushing himself back into eventual title contention! To get your tickets to GLORY BY HONOR weekend featuring CHAMPIONS VS.
