    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.

    CHAMPIONS VS. ALL STARS

    CHAMPIONS ROH World and Television Champion Jay Lethal (w/Truth Martini) & ROH World Tag Team Champions The Kingdom, Michael Bennett and Matt Taven (w/Maria Kanellis) vs. ALL STARS AJ Styles, ACH, & “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong.

    This year, the dynamic of the teams will be slightly different than it has been in the past. Last year, Jay Lethal was one of four men on the Champions team, representing the ROH World Television Championship. In the ensuing year, Lethal has captured the World Championship as well...while managing to hang on to the TV Title! That means that Champions vs. All Stars 2015 will now be a 3-on-3 elimination match. The other champions alongside Lethal, Michael Bennett and Matt Taven, only recently won gold at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA. This is one of the first outings for The Kingdom as champions, but they'll have Maria Kanellis in their corner.

    The All Stars team will have Roderick Strong, the perennial ace of ROH. "Mr. ROH" has never been more physically fit and athletically impressive than he is right now, a major accolade considering he's always been considered among the best in the world. The current Number One Contender to the ROH World Championship, AJ Styles, is the second man on the All Star team! And, like Strong, Styles no doubt sees a huge target on Lethal's back. At the same time, Styles and the Bullet Club have ongoing hostilities with The Kingdom and their NJPW alliance, CHAOS.

    The last man on the All Star team is ACH! At last year's CHAMPIONS VS. ALL STARS event, ACH was the standout competitor, outlasting nearly every other man in the match and very nearly pulling off the victory. He is determined to go all the way for 2015! ACH is coming off a massive victory on the ROH Reloaded tour, where he won a Four Corner Survival against Michael Elgin, Adam Cole, and Moose. Can the momentum he's riding now carry him through to victory in Dayton?

    JAY & MARK BRISCOE vs WAR MACHINE (RAY ROWE & HANSON)

    The next chapter in the brutal story between Dem Boys and War Machine will be written in Dayton on October 24th! These two teams have battled before, and every single time they've clashed has been an all-out war. Four men who aren't afraid to FIGHT means we have absolutely no idea how wild this match could get!

    The brothers from Sandy Fork are record-holding EIGHT-time ROH World Tag Team Champions. Quite simply, the Briscoes have set the standard for tag team competition in ROH. And the surest way to make an impact on the scene is to take them to the limit! That was War Machine's goal when this competitive rivalry began last year. In the interim, Hanson and Rowe have established themselves as one of the wrestling world's most dominant teams in their own right!

    War Machine have been garnering attention all around the world, including a recent stint in Pro Wrestling NOAH that will no doubt lead to future competition in Japan, but they've yet to claim gold in ROH, the ultimate goal of every team here. With the tag team field hotter and more competitive than ever before, every single match is a critical opportunity to prove you deserve championship opportunities!

    DONOVAN DIJAK w/TRUTH MARTINI vs. "UNBREAKABLE" MICHAEL ELGIN

    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!

    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!

    SILAS YOUNG & BEER CITY BRUISER w/ THE BOYS VS. ANX (KENNY KING & RHETT TITUS)

    The All Night Express shocked the professional wrestling world when they returned to Ring of Honor at All Star Extravaganza, answered the Briscoes open challenge, and defeated the former eight-time ROH World Tag Team Champions with the One Night Stand. That same night in San Antonio, “The Last Real Man” Silas Young used a low blow to defeat Dalton Castle and win The Boys.

    Young has enlisted the help of the Beer City Bruiser to turn The Boys into men while forming a formidable tag team in the process. The Wisconsin natives Young and Bruiser look to climb the tag team ranks while ANX try to continue their momentum that is carrying them toward a shot at the tag team championships they never lost!

    ADAM COLE VS. WILL FERRARA

    Since revealing part of the Kingdom’s master plan at All Star Extravaganza, Adam Cole has very publicly stated his goals for the remainder of 2015: eradicate Kyle O’Reilly from Ring of Honor and recapture the ROH World Title. Cole is on his way to earning a ROH World Title shot in the eyes of many but he has a major obstacle in his way in Dayton.

    Parkside, NY native Will Ferrara has been picking up victories in singles and tag team competition and is looking for a career-defining victory. Ferrara has the biggest test of his career in front of him in the former ROH World champion. Will Cole’s hatred of O’Reilly and tunnel-vision focus on the ROH World Title be the opening Ferrara needs to score the upset?

    4 CORNER SURVIVAL
    ADAM PAGE w/ BJ WHITMER VS. CEDRIC ALEXANDER w/ VEDA SCOTT VS. DALTON CASTLE VS. CLIFF COMPTON

    As we move to the last throws of 2015, Adam Page has zoomed beyond talks of Most Improved Wrestler straight into ROH title contender. Page has dispatched many top stars under the guidance of mentor BJ Whitmer but may have bit off more than he can chew entering this four-corner survival match in Dayton!
    Standing in the ring with Page will be Veda Scott’s top client Cedric Alexander, who has used any means necessary to rack up victory after victory, Dalton Castle, the man with the presence of Freddy Mercury and world championship wrestling ability, and Cliff Compton, making his return to Ring of Honor!

    Normally, Castle would be the wild card but Compton’s propensity for brawling could take this match in a direction no competitor wants to go in! Similarly, how will Whitmer and Scott factor into the match on the outside of the ring? One thing is for sure: the winner of this match will certainly cement themselves as a top contender for Ring of Honor singles gold.

    WOMEN OF HONOR
    KELLY KLEIN w/ BJ WHITMER VS. RAY LYNN

    When Ring of Honor left California, PA, the wrestling world was buzzing: who is Kelly Klein?
    BJ Whitmer has become known for adding tremendous young talent to add to the Decade, but Whitmer introduced the physically-imposing Klein, the mystery woman, complete with chiseled arms and black eye, as having over ten years of experience and having paid her dues. Intrigued fans of Women of Honor have lobbied matchmaker Nigel McGuiness, wanting to see this mysterious competitor, and he has delivered a huge Women of Honor contest for Dayton!

    Klein is just the latest addition to the rapidly growing Women of Honor. Klein reportedly has her eyes set on nothing short of destruction and will get her first opportunity in Women of Honor action against a fiery youngster who has made her mark in Ohio Valley Wrestling, Ray Lynn. Lynn was trained by Al Snow and has a tremendous win/loss record in two years of competition on the independent circuit. Despite Klein being cloaked in secrecy, Lynn is up for the challenge in Dayton!
