This Saturday Night ROH returns to Nashville

Discussion in 'ROH Feed' started by ROHNEWS, Dec 29, 2014.

    We are less than one week away from the first ROH TV taping of 2015! This entire night is STACKED, including the debut of Alberto El Patron and the first round of the TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT. January 3rd in Nashville hosts this stop on the WINTER WARRIORS TOUR. Plus - just announced - Hanson and "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin will face each other in a heated rematch after the no contest result to their latest encounter on ROH TV. These two want a clear winner once and for all, and on January 3rd Nigel McGuinness is letting them battle it out once again!

    Our television cameras will be rolling in Nashville - but there's nothing quite like seeing Ring of Honor LIVE! To be there in person on January 3rd, click HERE! In addition to the huge lineup already announced, we can now confirm even MORE matches signed for Nashville:

    - SIX MAN TAG action for The Decade

    Following Adam Page's "promotion," The Decade is apparently in search of a new young boy. We aren't exactly sure what goes into the "audition process" for such an alleged honor, but so far we've seen them vet some potential candidates through ROH pre-show matches. As evidenced by the subsequent beatdowns, so far no one has proven satisfactory.

    But in Nashville, Whitmer, Jacobs, and Page will be in six man tag team action! We don't yet know their opponents - might they include some potential recruits? Or will The Decade already have a line-up of new candidates ready to carry their bags in Tennessee? The Decade is renewed and refocused for 2015, so don't miss your chance to see them in action!

    - ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe vs. A Member of The Kingdom

    This match has a question mark hanging over it because we don't know who *exactly* will face Jay Briscoe. Either Matt Taven OR Michael Bennett must step into the ring with the champion. However, we can confirm this will be a non-title match per the request of Jay Briscoe. It seems that even though neither member of The Kingdom has EARNED a World Championship opportunity, Briscoe would be more than happy to brutalize either one of them in a non-title situation!

    But even without the championship on the line, this promises to be a heated match thanks to the long, contentious history between The Kingdom and Jay Briscoe. Plus - as we are about to see, Nigel McGuinness has yet to name a new number one contender to the World Championship following Adam Cole's defeat at FINAL BATTLE. A strong showing against Jay Briscoe definitely gives you a good argument for a future title opportunity!

    - Adam Cole WILL Be In Nashville!

    In the fallout from FINAL BATTLE, information came to light indicating that former champion Adam Cole had suffered a severe shoulder injury. Speculation ran rampant - would he be taking time off? Surgery? Something even more debilitating? Thus far, Cole has remained absolutely silent about his injury. We can confirm that he WILL be in Nashville on January 3rd - and Adam Cole himself promises a full update on his reaction to FINAL BATTLE and his future!

    - The State of the World Championship

    Finally, ROH Head Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness is headed to Nashville with an update on the World Championship. Now that FINAL BATTLE is over, we know that Jay Briscoe is kicking off 2015 with the title. The question remains, however...WHO is the number one contender? Cole vs. Briscoe was such a brutal, bloody Fight Without Honor that there's whispers BOTH men emerged with major battle scars - not just physically, but mentally.
    Nigel has the critical task of determining who on the ROH roster has earned the right to challenge our champion, Jay Briscoe, who proved at FINAL BATTLE that he is the toughest athlete in professional wrestling today!

    Plus - Nigel McGuinness also promises to have an update on the status of Tommaso Ciampa. Ciampa's reinstatement into ROH was contingent on a zero tolerance policy: no physical contact with ROH officials. At FINAL BATTLE, Ciampa took out a referee - though the circumstances left everyone asking questions about his intent. Now on January 3rd we will get the full update!

    The first ROH event of 2015 just keeps getting bigger! Don't miss your chance to be there LIVE! For tickets to the Nashville stop of the WINTER WARRIORS TOUR, click HERE.
