In front of my wife, in front of my newborn child, I promise you Roddy, I can and will beat you. When its all said and done, no one will refer to me as the second Roderick Strong, I’ll be the first Cedric Alexander!

We go to a promo from Michael Elgin. Elgin says that for 2 years since Showdown in the Sun, the ROH World Title has consumed me. Its all I think about. I go to bed, I train, I wrestle, I eat, the only thing that is on my mind is the ROH World Title. But now, I’ve found a new thing to consume me, the IWGP Title. New York City, I have the chance to leave with one of the most prestigious titles in wrestling, but tonight Rocky Romero, I’m focused on you. When I’m focused, its scary, I scare myself, so I can’t imagine how you feel. Tonight Rocky, you realize that Michael Elgin is Unbreakable.
