    Even though the calendar might be heralding a brand new year, that doesn't automatically hit the reset button on the raging hostilities in Ring of Honor. While our first show of 2015 will be filled with beginnings - the start of the TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT, the debut of Alberto El Patrón - some of the stars of ROH consider their rivalries far from settled!

    Months ago, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin put his personal stamp of approval on War Machine, the dominant new tag team formed by Raymond Rowe and Hanson. Hanson and Rowe battled each other in the finals of last year's TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT, and forged a mutual respect. Seeing that Elgin was outnumbered by Adam Cole and his crew, War Machine backed up Elgin whenever he needed. It seemed like an unstoppable trio who were on the way to unprecedented success in ROH.

    But things don't always go as planned. First, Raymond Rowe was injured in a horrific motorcycle accident. He remains on the shelf, though he very publically continues to support his friend and partner, Hanson, in his ROH career. The entire tag team division is on notice for when War Machine reunites! For right now, however, Hanson is tearing through Ring of Honor on his own. And, of course, Michael Elgin's championship reign ended at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA. Since that day, we have seen a significant change in the former champion. He's unstable. Paranoid. And he's turning against everyone he used to trust.

    That destructive paranoia split the former partnership between Elgin and Hanson right in half! To many, it seems like Elgin has attempted to plant seeds of mistrust and resentment between Hanson and Rowe. Elgin continues to claim that his issues are not personal - that his problems lie with Ring of Honor. But for Hanson, "personal" doesn't even begin to cover it! The growing rivalry between Hanson and the former World Champion is only going to get more intense as we kick of 2015.

    On a recent episode of ROH TV, Hanson and Elgin battled one-on-one! This was a war between two of the strongest, most unapologetically hard-hitting athletes in all of ROH. In the end, the ring couldn't contain the brutality, and Elgin put Hanson through a table. The indecisive conclusion of the match - no pinfall, no clear winner - incensed both competitors. Michael Elgin claims it's further evidence of the unfair treatment he receives from ROH. Meanwhile, Hanson wants to lay out Elgin in the center of the ring once and for all!

    So when we kick of 2015 in Nashville, we will also witness the continuation of this rivalry. That's right, Head Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has made the decision and signed the match for January 3rd. When the ROH WINTER WARRIORS TOUR hits Nashville, you will see the rematch between MICHAEL ELGIN and HANSON! This is in addition to everything else we have lined up, including the first round of the 2015 TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT. Plus - our television cameras will be there to record all the action when bring the best professional wrestling on the planet back to Nashville!
