    0A2B1281
    Ring of Honor's huge return to the The Sunshine State is just days away! And not only will you see a full night of ROH action LIVE, the whole thing will be taped for ROH TV! On October 25th, the ROH RELOADED tour is barreling into Lakeland and here's what you can look forward to:

    - AJ STYLES VS. HANSON
    This just might be the biggest opportunity in Hanson's career! AJ Styles is a former IWGP Heavyweight Champion and regarded by many as the best professional wrestler in the world. Hanson won the 2014 ROH Top Prospect Tournament and has been on a tear ever since. An unfortunate injury to his WAR MACHINE partner, Ray Rowe, temporarily stalled his tag career. But Hanson has turned this negative into a huge positive, focusing on singles competition in ROH. That's lead him to Lakewood, where he faces AJ Styles for the very first time.

    Obviously, this match presents an enormous clash of styles - no pun intended. AJ's speed and high flying innovation often allow him to out maneuver and outlast his opponents. But Hanson is one of the largest athletes on the ROH roster. If he can keep AJ grounded, that might be the key to overpowering The Phenomenal One. And don't forget - Hanson himself has recently been known to defy gravity and take to the air! When you have two competitors who are so diverse in their techniques, the outcome is completely unpredictable. The entire world is sure to have their eyes locked on AJ STYLES VS. HANSON!

    SPECIAL APPEARANCE AND INTERVIEW W/ RAYMOND ROWE
    On the night that his WAR MACHINE partner, Hanson, takes on AJ Styles, Ray Rowe will be there in Lakeland for a special appearance and interview. Rowe has been recovering from a horrific motorcycle accident that necessitated surgery and rehabilitation. He's sworn to come back stronger and better than ever. We'll get the full update right from him on October 25th!
    THE BRISCOES VS. THE KINGDOM
    It's been brewing for months! The Kingdom has been antagonizing Dem Boys virtually nonstop, riding down Jay Briscoe's worthiness as World Champion and even trying to pit brother against brother. In particular, Adam Cole has been almost obsessively focused on bringing down the Briscoes and his mission has become The Kingdom's focus.

    The hatred between Adam Cole and Jay Briscoe goes WAY back. Cole was the eventual winner of the tournament held when Jay Briscoe was forced to end his first title reign, and Briscoe maintains that he was the "real" champion because Cole never beat him. But now that Jay is champion once again, Cole is obsessed with proving the Briscoe isn't worthy of the title. Briscoe and Cole have battled all around the country - even a Ladder War! - and still the hatred continues. Now Jay will team up with his brother, Mark, to take on The Kingdom in Lakewood! On October 25th, it's The Briscoes vs. The Kingdom and it's being taped for ROH TV!

    CEDRIC ALEXANDER VS. TOMMASO CIAMPA
    NOTE: This match announcement contains spoilers for ROH Television. Prior to the Honor Rumble, Cedric Alexander was attacked. All signs point to Tommaso Ciampa's guilt as his assailant, as the suspended Ciampa kept interfering in ROH events to get himself "noticed." As a reminder, Ciampa was suspended indefinitely after attacking ROH crew, threatening Kevin Kelly, and concussing Bobby Cruise. On the 11/1 episode of ROH TV, it is revealed that Nigel McGuinness has decided to reinstate Ciampa under a ZERO tolerance policy - if he touches any ROH official or non-wrestler outside the ring, he's gone forever.

    And now he'll have to step into the ring with the man it seems he attacked before the Honor Rumble - CEDRIC ALEXANDER! Ciampa needs to be on his absolute best behavior. He's long argued that no one appreciates or respects him and he deserves more than he's been given. So Nigel has given him the opportunity to come back to ROH - his ONLY opportunity!

    MATT SYDAL VS ADAM COLE!

    Adam Cole's ROH history as a hardworking, naturally gifted young man who developed an increasingly arrogant side as success started to come his way probably seemed a bit...familiar....to longtime fans. That's because we witnessed Matt Sydal undergo a very similar transformation in his earlier ROH days! And now that he's been ROH Champion and accomplished so much, Adam Cole looks at himself at the absolute pinnacle of ROH. He doesn't have time for worn out "has-beens" like Matt Sydal trying to remake themselves off of his fame.

    But Matt Sydal is ANYTHING but worn out. He's renewed and REBORN and ready to throw everything he has at the former ROH Champion. This is a match so many have been begging for since Sydal returned and now it can finally happen in Lakeland! No doubt, Sydal sees so much of himself in Adam Cole. In this match, the past and future are ready to collide...and show why RIGHT NOW the absolute best in the world are right here in RING OF HONOR.
