That number is one that haunted Roderick Strong for much of his ROH career because those two digits represented the number of opportunities he had to claim the World Title. That number also represented the number of times he failed to claim the championship despite his power, despite his brutal chops, despite his array of backbreakers, and despite the devastating Stronghold submission, it was a destiny that seemed as if it would forever allude Roderick. Still, in spite those defeats, in spite of what most men would consider setbacks, Roderick excelled in the face of his adversity and remained undaunted in the pursuit of his dream to someday claim the ROH World Title. This is the story of how that dream became a reality...
Picking up where "Messiah of the Backbreaker" left off, this 20 match compilation chronicles the journey Strong took to finally become Ring of Honor World Champion and the collisions with foes such as Nigel McGuinness, Austin Aries, Bryan Danielson, and Tyler Black that took him there. In addition, for the first time, Roderick sat down with the ROH cameras to discuss his thoughts and share his reflections on the matches & the opponents that he encountered along the way. Be it KENTA, Jay Briscoe, or Davey Richards, Strong has left an indelible impression on both his foes and Ring of Honor fans alike. Witness the wars that forged this champion and hear him open up like never before. This is Roderick Strong and this is his Destiny Fulfilled...
With unequaled aggression and a natural chemistry honed from a mutual desire to be the absolute best, The American Wolves took the tag team division by storm. Sending a message with ruthless assaults on The Briscoes and Steen & Generico, Davey Richards & Eddie Edwards quickly ascended to the top of the heap and claimed championship success. Be it in a Ladder War or in state of the art tag team exhibitions against duos like The Young Bucks or The Kings of Wrestling, Davey & Eddie dominated the competition with a unique hybrid of submission wrestling, brutal striking, and with a drive for success rarely matched by any others.
This 19 match collection is a showcase of how Richards & Edwards became two of ROH's elite and demonstrates how in the quest to be the best, the hunt never dies... AWF Wrestling passed this along.
