– Roderick Strong had comments regarding the Defy of Deny Challenge against ROH World Champion Kevin Steen, Michael Elgin & Eddie Edwards. The rules of a Defy or Deny match are as follows: an elimination match in which if Edwards, Strong, or Elgin are the winner they will receive a future shot at the ROH World Title but should Steen be the last man standing, then the man he pinned to win will never receive another World Title match as long as Kevin Steen remains champion. It’s “Defy or Deny II” on Saturday January 19th at the Turner Hall Ballroom in Milwaukee! Tickets on-sale now!
