    This week, ROH heads south for the winter with our Ft. Lauderdale return! The ROAD TO FINAL BATTLE is coming through the Sunshine State on December 5th for a huge live event. With FINAL BATTLE looming on the horizon, all the action in Ft. Lauderdale could have major consequences for our end of the year pay-per-view!
    Here's what we have lined up on the ROAD TO FINAL BATTLE...

    JAY LETHAL & DONOVAN DIJAK w/ TRUTH MARTINI VS. YOUNG BUCKS (NICK & MATT JACKSON)

    The animosity between The House of Truth and Bullet Club intensifies just weeks before FINAL BATTLE! At our year end pay-per-view, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal defends his title against AJ Styles in a hotly anticipated battle. On Night One of SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST, Lethal, Dijak, and Joey Daddiego teamed up to face the Bucks and Styles. Stunningly, Styles PINNED the reigning Lethal after a brutal Styles Clash! That night, the Bullet Club stood tall, with AJ Styles sending a clear message to the Champion. With a challenger the caliber of AJ Styles, an athlete many call the best wrestler in the world today, the result of the FINAL BATTLE main event is completely up in the air.

    Just 2 weeks before, Lethal faces his now-familiar foes, The Young Bucks, and there's no doubt the House of Truth will do whatever it takes to get their win back from the Bullet Club - and send their own message to AJ Styles. How much has the loss in Milwaukee shaken the current champion? In Dijak, he will have one of the most intimidating forces in ROH at his side. The past months have seen the 2014 Top Prospect Winner step up and seize every opportunity presented to him, and the world has definitely taken notice. While some might be intimidated by the sheer star power and international acclaim of a team like The Young Bucks, Donovan Dijak sees them as just another chance to prove he belongs in ROH among the best in the world.

    ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP
    DELIRIOUS VS. RODERICK STRONG

    The open challenge continues: RODDY VS. THE WORLD! Now that he has reclaimed the ROH World Television Championship, Roderick Strong has even more proof that he's the best conditioned, most dynamic athlete in all of professional wrestling. And he's willing to stake that claim against the entire world!

    Just weeks before FINAL BATTLE, he will defend his championship against a completely unexpected opponent: DELIRIOUS! We had no idea that Delirious was scouting the ROH World TV Title, let alone planning to accept Roddy's challenge. But on December 5th, the masked madman steps back into an ROH ring verses one the new Television Champion!

    MATT SYDAL VS. JAY BRISCOE

    Matt Sydal has just returned from a month long tour with New Japan Pro Wrestling! His first stop back was the final match in the Best of Five challenge series between Sydal and his tag team partner, ACH. In the end, Sydal came up on the losing side of things, costing himself the series and entry into this year's SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST tournament. As 2015 draws to a close, sources say the always enlightened, "reborn" Sydal is feeling especially contemplative and reflective. What will 2016 bring for him? The goal of the challenge series was personal growth for the two competing athletes - but what does this mean for the bond between the team? There are clearly many questions we have yet to see answered when it comes to the next step for Matt Sydal.

    But on December 5th in Ft. Lauderdale, he squares off with a former two-time ROH World Champion: JAY BRISCOE! One half of former eight time World Tag Team Champions alongside his brother Mark, Jay Briscoe has recently been focused on the incredible tag team scene in Ring of Honor. But this ROH legend is a singles threat each and every time he's signed for one-on-one competition! THE ROAD TO FINAL BATTLE presents this major singles match between two of the most charismatic athletes in all of professional wrestling. It might be winter, but the action is heating up down in The Sunshine State on December 5th!

    BOBBY FISH VS. ACH

    This is a rematch long in the making between two of Ring of Honor's biggest stars! ACH is riding high after coming out on top of the Best of Five Challenge series against his tag partner, Matt Sydal. Now is the time for him to ride that momentum to even greater heights, including more success for the team. But on December 5th, ACH will be in singles competition against Bobby Fish!

    One half of current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions, reDRagon, Bobby Fish is also an accomplished singles wrestler. With his partner, Kyle O'Reilly, embroiled in a bitterly personal rivalry with Adam Cole, we may be seeing Fish seize some unexpected opportunities for himself!

    ADAM COLE VS. KENNY KING

    Speaking of Adam Cole, he takes on one half of the All Night Express, Kenny King! King's return to ROH has opened up countless possibilities for thrilling match ups, and this is one people have been clamoring to see! The animosity between Cole and Kyle O'Reilly continues to escalate, with O'Reilly costing Cole the chance to advance in SURVIVAL OF THE FITTEST and possibly win two years in a row!

    But Cole needs to ensure his attention is focused on King when they battle on the ROAD TO FINAL BATTLE. Adam Cole is a former ROH World Champion, but Kenny King has held tag team gold himself. Perhaps more importantly, King has seen that the level of competition in ROH is hotter than ever. He needs to reestablish himself, and a win over Adam Cole would send an undeniable message!

    4 CORNER SURVIVAL
    RHETT TITUS VS. CHEESEBURGER VS. MOOSE VS. DALTON CASTLE

    This is a sure to be unforgettable mix of styles and personalities! A Ring of Honor 4 Corner Survival contest matches up athletes in unique combinations and on December 5th, the four men signed to compete couldn't be more different. The biggest and the smallest competitors on the roster, a newly returned former tag team champion...and the one and only DALTON CASTLE! It's impossible to even speculate what will go down when these four go to battle in Ft. Lauderdale. You won't want to miss your chance to be there LIVE!

    MARK BRISCOE VS. WILL FERRARA

    Another major opportunity for Will Ferrara against an ROH legend! The ROH Dojo standout has proven time and again that he's willing to take on absolutely anyone, no matter their accolades and credentials. That never back down attitude has earned Ferrara high profile matches against some of the best in the sport, and December 5th will be no different! Mark Briscoe is unpredictable and unforgettable and always ready for a fight!
