    -The Briscoes vs. War Machine

    When Hanson and Ray Rowe battled each other in the finals of the 2014 TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT, they forged a bond built on mutual respect and the realization that, as a unit, they could dominate the tag team scene in Ring of Honor. And it seemed virtually certain that the newly christened WAR MACHINE was barreling down the road to championship glory. During that rise, War Machine found themselves embroiled in an increasingly competitive rivalry with Mark and Jay Briscoe, arguably the greatest team in the history of ROH.

    The bright future of War Machine was cast in doubt last fall when Ray Rowe was in a horrific motorcycle accident that nearly ended his life, let alone his professional wrestling career. Rowe swore he would return better and stronger than ever. He dedicated himself to rehabilitating his injuries, all with the goal of reuniting War Machine motivating his recovery.

    Meanwhile, Hanson dove into singles competition in Ring of Honor and set his sights on the ROH World Championship. His success led him to Las Vegas and a spot in the main event of the 13TH ANNIVERSARY pay-per-view! In the four way "All In" World Championship match, Hanson got a visual pin on the champion, Jay Briscoe. Thanks to all the chaos unfolding around, the pin wasn't registered as a victory, but on that night Hanson proved he can hang with the very best in the world!

    The pay-per-view also saw the RETURN of Ray Rowe! Now he's reunited with his partner and War Machine is back on the path of destruction. Their last match against The Briscoes took place in August on ROH TV - and you can relive it right now! But on April 25th, War Machine finally gets their rematch against Jay and Mark Briscoe. This is a critical opportunity to put the rest of Ring of Honor on notice. War Machine is back and they are picking up exactly where they left off!

    Kyle O'Reilly vs. Jay Lethal w/Truth Martini

    Three-time ROH World Tag Team Champion Kyle O’Reilly will challenge the record setting ROH Television Champion Jay Lethal. O’Reilly is receiving this opportunity based on recently tapping out Lethal during the Champions Challenge match up in Milwaukee, WI.

    O’Reilly has blazed a trail as one half arguably the best tag team in the world, reDRagon. Already a 3 time World Tag Team Champion, is it possible that he can become TV Champion for the first time by beating Lethal? Most experts and fans would say yes! But Lethal is not just the greatest ROH Television Champion, he is easily one of the best pound for pound professional wrestlers in the world today. He has turned back all challenges thrown at him during his one year reign and done so in impressive fashion.

    Is O’Reilly the one? Is his style unique enough to catch Lethal off guard long enough to win his first major singles championship? Truth Martini will assuredly have a game plan for his champion. Is Kyle the next ROH Television Champion or is he just the next challenger to fall at the feet of the great Jay Lethal?

    - Roderick Strong vs. Silas Young

    Silas Young is back in Ring of Honor! The self proclaimed "Last Real Man" in professional wrestling has returned to action after a knee injury last fall forced him onto the sidelines. In his first match back, he took on a rising star from the ROH Dojo, Will Ferrara. That night, we saw that Young's hiatus hasn't made him any more...personable, as he resorted to a blatantly dishonorable low blow. But even when Silas Young makes overtures of respect and fair play, it's clear that everyone on the Ring of Honor roster is hesitant to trust him.

    And his opponent in Hopkins is even more unlikely to fall for any of Young's sneaky tactics: "Mr. ROH" RODERICK STRONG! Roderick Strong has seen and done it all. Now he's trying to push himself back into championship contention once again. Meanwhile, Silas Young has his own championship goals to reestablish. This is a battle between two skilled veterans of the ring who can't afford to lose!

    - "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs. Caprice Coleman

    Caprice Coleman has one of the biggest singles matches in his career when he takes on former ROH World Champion, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin! Coleman is often thought of as a tag team wrestler in ROH, both because of his success with former partner, Cedric Alexander, and his history of taking younger, less tenured talent under his wing and guiding them. But Coleman is one of the most experienced wrestlers in the ROH locker room, and he is ready for any challenge. On April 25th, Caprice Coleman stands alone!

    This is a huge opportunity for Coleman to prove himself against a former champion and one of the best in the world. Michael Elgin believes all of ROH has failed him, and that even includes his former protégés, War Machine. He trusts absolutely no one and doesn't care how many casualties pile up while he seeks the retribution he thinks he deserves.

    - ACH vs. Adam Page

    The Decade has been built on the assumption by its members that they are being slighted while others less deserving gain their opportunities. Adam Page recently started a social media campaign attacking ACH for what Page perceives as ACH receiving opportunities that he just squanders. Page has been taught by BJ Whitmer to speak his mind. That it’s ok to let the world know your thoughts, whether they agree or not.

    One has to wonder what ACH is thinking. He is a man of incredible physical attributes that likely can't be matched. ACH is not known as a man who talks big but instead lets his actions speak for themselves. He has accepted this match in order to shut Page’s mouth, but is it just Page talking? ACH can not overlook the presence of the bully, BJ Whitmer. There is a confrontation that takes this rivalry to a whole new level on a recent episode of Ring of Honor Television that you must see. These two amazing athletes will clash in Hopkins and you need to be there to witness it!

    - Bobby Fish vs. Ariya Daivari

    In his ROH debut against Roderick Strong, Ariya Daivari overcame the pressure of competing among the best wrestlers on the planet and impressed so much that he will return in Hopkins! A standout in the Midwest, Daivari has built a reputation that carried him to his ROH opportunity. Now on April 25th he will go toe-to-toe with an international superstar, former ROH World Tag Team Champion, Bobby Fish!

    No doubt Fish will have reDRagon's shocking title loss fresh in his mind, motivating him to be more aggressive than ever. And this means that Daivari is facing an even bigger challenge than he might have anticipated. Ring of Honor is THE place for young talent to rise up and put the world on notice, and on April 25th all eyes are on Ariya Daivari!

    - The Romantic Touch vs. Will Ferrara vs. Beer City Bruiser vs. Cheeseburger

    Four former ROH Top Prospect contenders will battle in Hopkins on April 25th! All of these young athletes impressed in past tournaments and continue to make their way up the ROH ladder. They also represent four completely distinct personalities and styles, from the brash and slovenly Bruiser to our own perennially beloved underdog, CHEESEBURGER! When you have four athletes this hungry for opportunities and success all competing in the same ring, you're guaranteed nonstop action and excitement!
