    This Saturday night Ring of Honor makes it's return to Hopkins, Minnesota and the Eisenhower Community Center. Doors open at 5:30pm for the Pre show autograph signing with ROH World & World TV Champion Jay Lethal, "The Phenomenal" AJ Styes & Dalton Castle

    Here is a preview of what you will see!


    Triple Threat Main Event
    “THE PHENOMENAL" AJ STYLES vs. “MR ROH" RODERICK STRONG vs. KYLE O'REILLY

    Roderick Strong is on a record setting pace in 2015. He most recently secured the number 1 contenders position with a big win over Moose & “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin at Best in The World '15. AJ Styles has elevated himself to be quite possibly THE best professional wrestler in the entire world. He just lost his cherished IWGP Heavyweight Championship and the timing couldn't be better for the challengers hoping to score a big win. Kyle O’Reilly is known as a great tag team wrestler but is also a solid singles competitor. In March he tapped out new ROH World & Television Champion Jay Lethal and this past April he took Lethal to a time limit draw! A win speaks volumes in terms of championship dreams! You are going to see three of the very best in Ring of Honor face off in Hopkins. They will be focused on being the one who gets the next title opportunity against Jay Lethal!

    Mixed Tag Team
    UNDISPUTED ROH WORLD & WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION JAY LETHAL & TRUTH MARTINI vs. JAY BRISCOE & ODB

    Jay Briscoe & Truth Martini made life very tough for former ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe recently. Even before losing his championship to Lethal, Briscoe felt the pressure of the H.O.T. and the constant presence of Martini could have played into Briscoe suffering just his first loss in over 2 years to Lethal. At ROH’s 13th Anniversary they brought One Dirty Briscoe in to even the odds. At every chance ODB had to get him, Martini would slip away! On July 11, Martini won’t be able to run. He will have to stand side by side with Jay Lethal and face off with a very angry Jay Briscoe and ODB This will not be pretty! An enraged Briscoe and ODB looking for vengeance awaits the new champion and his manager.

    ADAM COLE VS. BOBBY FISH

    These two larger than life personalities will clash for the first time in singles competition in Ring of Honor! Former ROH World Champion Adam Cole is gaining momentum since returning from a serious shoulder injury. Fish is also gaining momentum, creating a lot of attention after nearly defeating then ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe at War of The Worlds Night 1. There appears to be simmering issues between the Kingdom and reDRagon that have The Kingdom's Queen, Maria Kanellis, very concerned. It’s the obnoxious former World Champion against the obnoxious former 3x ROH World Tag Team Champion who is looking to stake his claim at singles glory.

    MATT TAVEN VS. MICHAEL ELGIN

    Matt Taven has found unprecedented success alongside Michael Bennett in The Kingdom. Since forming their tag team, Bennett and Taven have traveled the world and even won international championships! But on July 11th, Matt Taven stands alone against a former ROH World Champion. Michael Elgin set to embark on his very first journey to Japan as a participant in NJPW's G1 Climax. After winning the ROH World Championship, Elgin named competing in Japan as the one major goal he had yet to accomplish. But first he has to get through Matt Taven, who is eager to prove he's a singles threat as well as a tag team force.

    DALTON CASTLE VS. ACH

    ACH is one of the most brash and confident athletes in all of ROH. It's hard to shake the confidence of someone who knows how uniquely talented he is, but Dalton Castle has a way of getting into the heads of his opponents with his unpredictable and unconventional style. This match has potential to steal the entire show! Be there July 11th to watch two of the most engaging professional wrestlers on the planet go one-on-one!

    4 CORNER SURVIAL
    MICHAEL BENNETT W/MARIA KANELLIS VS. MOOSE VS. WILL FERRARA VS. CHEESEBURGER

    No one does a 4 Corner match quite like Ring of Honor! These challenges always bring together an unexpected mix of unlikely opponents, and July 11th will be no different. Michael Bennett will strike out without his tag team partner, Matt Taven, to take on an old foe...CHEESEBURGER! Burger, Bennett, and Maria have a lot of history, most of which Maria would love to forget. Will Ferrara adds an elevated element of speed and athleticism to the fray. And rounding out the field, Moose is cultivating more and more hostility toward his DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR opponent, Cedric Alexander. But on July 11th, his three opponents are going to have to face one big, angry MOOSE!

    MARK BRISCOE VS. DANNY DUGGAN

    After a standout performance in his last Ring of Honor outing, Danny Duggan returns to ROH! He's set to take on Mark Briscoe, one half of record holding ROH World Tag Team Champions, The Briscoes. This is a huge opportunity for Duggan to cement himself as an up-and-coming prospect for Ring of Honor. You never know when you're watching a future World Champion, so you definitely don't want to miss July 11th!

    SILAS YOUNG & BEER CITY BRUISER VS. WAR MACHINE
    Silas Young and Beer City Bruiser might seem like an unlikely pairing at first glance. But they have quite a bit in common. Both are loud, miserable, abrasive and not exactly endearing themselves to the ROH locker room. Is the Beer City Bruiser "man" enough to team with the Last Real Man? Their opponents don't really care WHO they face because they promise the same result every single time: destruction. War Machine are bulldozing a path through the competition, no matter where and no matter who!
