Ring of Honor Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has officially announced the rematch of the epic 60 minute time limit draw between ROH World & World Television Champion Jay Lethal & “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong has been signed and it will take place Friday Night August 21, 2015 at the historic 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, PA.
“Mr ROH” Roderick Strong made a statement at Death Before Dishonor XIII, that he is without a doubt one of the very best wrestlers on the planet. ROH World & World Television Champion Jay Lethal proved that he IS the best wrestler on the planet, which is why he is still champion.
While neither man can lay claim to victory, there were many battles won by both sides. Strong proved over 60 minutes that Lethal could not defeat him, even with the interference of Truth Martini & The H.O.T. Strong proved that he has limitless conditioning and with a few more minutes could have pulled out the victory to become a 2x ROH World Champion. Lethal himself proved to Strong that it is going to take everything he has and much more to remove the championship from his waste.
Roderick Strong is already telling those who will listen that he is amping up his training and will come in even more prepared. Truth Martini has a few comments on the rematch, “Jay Lethal is the undisputed ROH World & World Television Champion for a reason. Roderick Strong you won’t be ready for what he is bringing in Philly!”
Nigel McGuiness has dictated that if Lethal does retain his ROH World Championship in this defense, that he will still be obligated to face reDRagon’s Kyle O’Reilly in San Antonio, TX at All Star Extravaganza live on PPV, Friday September 18. On top of that Lethal is currently scheduled to also defend his ROH World Television Championship against the #1 contender to the title, reDRagon’s Bobby Fish. The pressure is on Lethal right now and Strong could capitalize on a very unique situation to become a 2x ROH World Champion.
McGuinness has also stated that should Roderick Strong defeat Jay Lethal to become the New ROH World Champion, he would then assume the already signed title defense against Kyle O’Reilly on at All Star Extravaganza VII.
Be there in Philly to see the rematch of what most are calling the “Match of The Year”. With all the major implications, you will not want to miss out on this! Get your tickets now, by clicking here.
