    ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has just announced that a #1 contenders match for the ROH World Championship has been signed for Best in The World ’15: Battle of the Belts, live on Pay Per View, Friday June 19, 2015 at Terminal 5 in New York City.

    It will be “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin vs. Moose vs. “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong

    Roderick Strong stated at the end of 2014 that he was entering 2015 determined to prove that even without a championship he was still the finest wrestler in the world. He stormed into 2015 and has faced and defeated the very best put in front of him. He has not only defeated them but looked better than ever in doing so.

    “Moose, Moose, Moose” is the chant that has taken on a life of its own with the ROH faithful! Moose is backed by what he calls “Moose Nation." These are fans of this freakish once in a lifetime athlete. Led by the streetwise Stokely Hathaway and the smart and seductive Veda Scott, Moose debuted at Best in the World 2014 to much fanfare. Since that time he has gone undefeated and has steamrolled the competition at a ridiculous rate.

    “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin won the ROH World Championship in 2014. He lost the championship in September and remained in a state of flux until Final Battle 2014, where he defeated Tommaso Ciampa. Entering 2015 it appeared that he had regained focus and was primed to dominate. He has done exactly that!

    The contenders in this match were determined by their records so far in 2015. Veda Scott is arguing that since Moose has never tasted defeat, he should get a title shot and not have to face Strong and Elgin. Strong comes with a championship pedigree that is second to none. He has held every championship in ROH and his current streak of wins indicate that he is ready for another. Elgin has an unpredictable personality but inside the ring his won-loss record in 2015 is nearly flawless.

    These three men will face off for the right to become #1 contender to the ROH World Championship. All 3 are worthy but there can only be one true #1 contender. Three of the very best today, with different paths but similar goals, will collide with an opportunity for a shot at the most important prize in professional wrestling. . Do not miss out!
