    Ring of Honor's return to San Antonio is the next stop on THE CONQUEST TOUR! Our television cameras will be rolling to capture all the fallout from SUPERCARD OF HONOR IX. Plus, this huge event features ALBERTO EL PATRON! For tickets to be there live in San Antonio on April 4th, click HERE! Our return to Texas just keeps getting bigger and bigger. Here's the latest on the matches and stars signed:

    - Alberto El Patrón, ACH & #Reborn Matt Sydal vs. The Briscoes & Roderick Strong

    In the main event, the legendary Alberto El Patron returns home to team with #Reborn Matt Sydal and another Texas native, ACH. They will be taking on a team of ROH legends in “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong & The Briscoe Brothers. This is a HUGE match you can only see in Ring of Honor!

    Alberto El Patron has stated since he debuted in Ring of Honor that he wanted to take on nothing but the best. He has faced and defeated Strong, ACH and Christopher Daniels in singles match ups. Now with the ever exciting Sydal & ACH by his side, they face three of the very best of not just today, but in ROH history. Sydal & ACH are gaining real traction as a team. Fans have clamored for more and more of the duo since they won Tag Wars 2014. They recognize this as another chance to take step up that ladder of success.

    Across the ring will stand the current ROH World Champion, Jay Briscoe, along with his brother Mark and former Champion Roderick Strong. “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong is on fire right now. He has rededicated himself after leaving the Decade in late 2014. So far this year he has proven be the very best Roderick Strong yet and that makes him very dangerous. And he also has a loss against El Patron that he has a burning desire to avenge. This is his chance to do just that. The Briscoes own nearly every tag team record in ROH and look for all opportunities to further strengthen their legacy. Teaming with Strong against a trio that features a legend and a tag team with a bright future is something the Briscoes see as a real challenge.

    - ROH World Tag Team Championship
    reDRagon (c) vs. The Addiction

    There are very few superstars who carry the respect and admiration of both the fans and fellow ROH roster members as “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels. He is seen as an active legend within the ranks of ROH. Daniels is someone that doesn't use his status to get ahead, never “calling in a favor”.

    ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness was shocked recently to receive a phone call recently from Daniels. On behalf of his tag team partner in Addiction, Frankie Kazarian, he requested a match with the current ROH World Tag Team Champions reDRagon. He reasoned that The Addiction have never defeated reDRagon and they want to prove to the world and themselves that they can! Nigel was puzzled as Daniels wasn’t asking for a title opportunity. To Daniels this has become bigger than a championship. It is now deeply personal. However, Nigel has decided to make this a championship match now that reDRagon retained at SUPERCARD OF HONOR.

    reDRagon are a force unlike anything ROH has seen before. In just over 2 years they have won the ROH World Tag Team Championships 3 times. They have also won the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, all the while defeating the very best tag teams in professional wrestling... including The Addiction. This is a shot at retribution for Daniels and Kazarian!

    - War Machine (Hanson & Ray Rowe) vs. Killer Elite Squad (Lance Hoyt & Davey Boy Smith, Jr.)

    War Machine is back in action! After a horrific motorcycle accident, Ray Rowe considered himself lucky to be alive. And he swore to come back from rehabilitation better than ever! Now he has reunited with his partner, Hanson, and they are ready to pick up where they left off: taking over the tag team scene in ROH. Long ago, War Machine had the stamp of approval of former ROH World Champion, Michael Elgin. As a trio, this was a seemingly unstoppable force, bigger and stronger than ANYONE else in Ring of Honor!

    But since he lost his championship, Michael Elgin's increasing paranoia has convinced him he has no allies in ROH, including War Machine. He has decided they turned their backs on him just like everyone else...and nothing will convince him otherwise. Elgin and Hanson have already been at war, nearly destroying entire buildings as their brawls spill out of the ring! Now that War Machine is back in action, Elgin is determined to destroy the team.

    KES is coming to ROH! Michael Elgin has recruited these international stars to take out War Machine in San Antonio. Davey Boy Smith, Jr. and Lance Archer united as a force in Japan. They are former IWGP Tag Team Champions and the current GHC Tag Team Champions and NWA World Tag Team Champions. Together they have dominated tag team wrestling all over the planet and on April 4th they make a rare American appearance in ROH!

    As mercenaries to Michael Elgin, KES have been tasked with one mission: destroy War Machine. This will be a HUGE test - literally and figuratively for Hanson and Rowe as they reestablish themselves as a tag team force. A win over KES would send a message not just to the other teams, but directly to Michael Elgin himself. If you thought the battle between Elgin and War Machine was over, think again!

    - "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Cedric Alexander

    “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin has become increasingly unpredictable in his actions lately. Creating issues with the likes of War Machine and attacking wrestlers such as Will Ferrara, some would question Elgin's mental state. Others look into his eyes and see a cold calculating person who feels he has been wronged.

    Cedric Alexander now appears to be a step away from greatness. He is blessed with the physical tools and capabilities to be a champion, yet he remains on the cusp of getting there. The feeling is he can never get on the winning side of things long enough to truly break through to that next level. But that can all change this Saturday in San Antonio as Cedric will get a big chance to break through.

    Alexander will be facing off against a much talked about former ROH World Champion. These two have battled before and it's only going to be more intense this time around. Elgin is without question a monster in the ring, but now he seems to have found this inner anger and has combined it with his in-ring style. Can Cedric stay one step ahead of Elgin? Can Elgin wrap Alexander up in his own brand of chaos? You will want to be there to find out!

    - Donovan Dijak vs. Dalton Castle

    The winner of the 2015 ROH TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT, Donovan Dijak, instantly became the hottest free agent in Ring of Honor with his victory. And on a recent episode of ROH TV, he was set to have the biggest match of his career when he faced JAY LETHAL for the ROH World Television Championship. But - to the shock of everyone - the nefarious Truth Martini convinced Dijak to JOIN the House of Truth rather than fight against them!

    But Jay Lethal wouldn't get the night off after all. Out came a man who made an absolutely unforgettable impression in the TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT: Dalton Castle! Swirling his robe and lounging on his human furniture, Castle challenged Lethal to defend the title against him. When the champ balked, Castle stated his would just seek out Jay Briscoe, a real man and a real champion!

    This incensed Jay Lethal - who claims to be not just the greatest TV Champion but the greatest, period - and the match was on. In what must have been a shocker to the House of Truth, Dalton Castle dished out a barrage of his own innovative offense! In the end, Donovan Dijak proved his worth to his new cohorts by nailing Castle on the outside and feeding him to Jay Lethal for the win.

    Now on April 4th in San Antonio, Dalton Castle takes on Donovan Dijak one-on-one! This match is a huge opportunity for both of these young athletes to establish themselves in ROH. All eyes will definitely be on this one! There's no doubt Dijak will have the backing of the House of Truth as their latest major investment. But in just a few ROH appearances, Dalton Castle has captured the attention of every single fan in the crowd! The Peacock of Professional Wrestling feeds on the energy from his audience and now he's ready to dazzle San Antonio!

    - OPEN CHALLENGE FOR THE ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP

    Jay Lethal has become the most dominant ROH World Television Champion in the entire history of the title. In fact, Lethal claims that his is the most dominant wrestler in ALL of Ring of Honor. He has elevated the TV Championship to incredible heights and Lethal boasts that it is now the most prestigious prize in professional wrestling. Now in San Antonio, Lethal has issued an OPEN CHALLENGE for his title! Jay Lethal promises that he can beat absolutely anyone, anywhere...even if he doesn't know who he'll be wrestling! Be there LIVE April 4th and be the first to find out who accepts the open challenge. Order your tickets today by clicking HERE!
