ROH World Championship
"Unbreakable" Michael Elgin vs Jay Briscoe
When Jay Briscoe finally won the ROH World Title, it was a huge victory for all of a Ring of Honor. Jay has been here since day one and his success reflects the growth and the legacy of ROH. But Jay's reign was cut short due to a shoulder injury. Eventually, Adam Cole was crowned champion in a tournament - but Jay Briscoe insists he never actually lost the title. And he has yet to be pinned in an ROH ring since he returned.
Now that Michael Elgin has won the championship, he's opened his defenses up to any and all former champions. Jay Briscoe is more than happy to step in and win back the title he claims he never lost! Elgin and Briscoe were in a 4 Way World Title match at FIELD OF HONOR, but Briscoe wasn't involved in the fall. Now Jay Briscoe finally gets his one-on-one title opportunity at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA!
This is a match demanded not just by the men involved, but the fans as well. Elgin has sworn to be the most competitive fighting champion in the history of ROH. But in the eyes of Jay Briscoe, that historic ROH World Title lineage has a huge blemish on it - he never lost his belt. And to Jay, Elgin can't call himself the champion until he beats him.
- 2 out of 3 falls for the ROH World Tag Team Championship
reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) vs The Young Bucks (Nick & Matt Jackson)
Back at the history making ROH/NJPW event WAR OF THE WORLDS, reDRagon regained the ROH World Tag Team Titles by defeating The Young Bucks. This was no ordinary match. This was a showcase of the best tag team wrestling in the world and truly something special. Many in attendance and watching at home immediately touted the encounter as their match of the year - and quite possibly one of the best ROH matches of all time!
Matt and Nick Jackson have ushered in a new era of tag wrestling all around the world. Their exciting style and mindblowing combinations are unlike anything else in professional wrestling. But while The Bucks have been "making towns" around the world, Bobby Fish and Kyle O'Reilly were honing their game and emerging as the other preeminent team on the planet.
Signed for ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA VI: reDRagon vs. The Young Bucks...2 out of 3 falls! That's right. Not only will the World Tag Team Titles be on the line, this match will be contested under 2/3 Falls Rules. Just when you think this match is over, it's really only beginning!
- No Time Limit for the ROH World TV Title
Jay Lethal w/ Truth Martini vs ACH
It's the World Television Title match everyone is talking about! On ROH TV, ACH challenged Jay Lethal for the TV Title in one of the most athletic and exciting matches in the history of the show. It has to be seen to be believed! Unfortunately for ACH (and fortunately for the House of Truth), the bout had an announced 30 minute time limit - which expired before a winner was determined.
The time limit draw sounded after both Selezyia and Truth Martini had been ejected from ringside due to interference and even after Lethal himself considered taking his belt and running home. But through it all, ACH kept fighting and the rabid fans kept cheering him on. Had he gotten just a few more minutes, would he be champion today?
Just as fans demanded "five more minutes," Nigel McGuinness has looked into the TV title draw and made a decision. This match was so spectacular and so competitive that is deserves a rematch. But this time, there will be no draw. There MUST be a winner at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA 6!
- "The Phenomenal" AJ Styles vs Adam Cole
Current IWGP Heavyweight Champion AJ Styles vs. former ROH World Champion Adam Cole! This has been a match everyone has been begging to see from the moment Styles returned to Ring of Honor. Styles and Cole were both participants in the 4 Way Survival title match at FIELD OF HONOR, but this is their first singles encounter! AJ Styles has been making his way through all the top stars of ROH, but he's yet to face one of the fastest ringing stars in the world, Adam Cole.
Cole, meanwhile, has been reshaping his career after losing the World Title, focusing on his new alliance with Michael Bennett and The Kingdom. And that new focus took him all the way to New Japan Pro Wrestling, where Styles has been leading the pack. This is a huge match for Adam Cole in terms of international visibility and acclaim. And Styles remains one of the most athletic and exciting pro wrestlers on the entire planet. Some people will term this one a "dream match" and it's all going down on September 6th at the Maple Leaf Gardens!
- Grudge Tag Team Match
Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian vs The Decade's Roderick Strong & Jimmy Jacobs
In professional wrestling, loyalty is hard to come by. Alliances are formed only to be destroyed weeks later, partners betray each other every day over championships...and there's no real reward for loyalty. At least, that's the philosophy of The Decade right now. Jimmy Jacobs and Roderick Strong are each former tag team champions. They have weathered the storm as others have come and gone - using ROH as a stepping stone, if you listen to The Decade.
Recently, the tag team scene got an injection of new blood with the much anticipated addition of "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. In their very first ROH match at BEST IN THE WORLD, Daniels and Kazarian challenged reDRagon for the ROH World Tag Team Titles. More recently, at FIELD OF HONOR, they took on reDRagon for the titles once again - and can blame The Decade for contributing to their loss.
Now these two teams will have the chance to battle each other in an ROH ring! On September 6th at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA, "The Fallen Angel" Christopher Daniels and his partner Frankie Kazarian will take on The Decade as represented by Jimmy Jacobs and Roderick Strong! In terms of experience and accomplishments, these are four of the most established athletes on the entire ROH roster. You don't want to miss this! And you can see it LIVE both in Toronto and on iPPV!
- Battle of The Breakout Stars
Cedric Alexander vs "The Last Real Man" Silas Young
When you look at Silas Young and Cedric Alexander, your initial reaction probably doesn't see a whole lot of similarities.
Cedric is explosive and engaging, with crowds behind him in every city. He's young in his career - just getting started. Silas Young, on the other hand, is a cagey, grizzled veteran of the ropes. He doesn't care one way or the other if the fans support him. Two very different athletes walking two very different paths.
But when you look a little closer, are those paths all that different? Both men are watching their stock rise in ROH with every single match they have. In fact, both men are right now hot off World Title matches - the biggest challenges in their careers. And while neither was successful in snagging the title, both Alexander and Young proved they have what it takes to hang in championship competition.
Two breakout stars will collide at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA! Alexander and Young are now confirmed to go one-on-one in Toronto. This will be an obvious clash in attitudes and styles - there's no telling what these two will dish out!
- Mark Briscoe vs Hanson
An increasingly heated rivalry between The Briscoes and War Machine has been rocking every ROH event. In the beginning, most fans probably saw a brand new, hungry tag team trying their luck against Ring of Honor's most legendary unit of all time. But it became apparent very quickly that whatever they lacked in experience as a team, Hanson and Rowe could fill in a lot of blanks with "power" and "violence."
The next singles opportunity for Hanson will be in Toronto versus Mark Briscoe! This rivalry will continue - and now it's going global! Hanson is still constantly looking to prove that himself in ROH. When you are early into your Ring of Honor career, every single match is a critical chance to show your peers and the fans that you belong among the best professional wrestlers on the planet. This is a giant opportunity for Hanson regardless of the issues between him and his opponent...but when you factor that intensity in, Toronto better get ready for a battle!
- Four Corner Survival Match
BJ Whitmer & Adam Page vs Josh Alexander & Ethan Gabriel Owens vs Caprice Coleman & Watanabe vs RD Evans & Moose w/ Veda Scott
It's Tag Team Survival in Toronto! Four of the hottest new tag teams in ROH will battle each other at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA. Each one of these teams is trying to move to the next level and compete for titles. Every win matters! And when the tag scene is this competitive, a huge four corner match is definitely going to rock the Mattamy Athletic Centre.
In one corner, The Decade will be represented by Adam Page and BJ Whitmer. Across the ring will be a newer team: Caprice Coleman and Takaaki Watanabe. Also entered into the fray will be the team of Ethan Gabriel Owens and Josh Alexander. This team has been making waves in ROH, taking on high level competition and impressing in every outing. And finally, [HASHTAG]#TheNewStreak[/HASHTAG] has found a new ally in MOOSE, who teams with R.D. Evans in Toronto.
- Plus an important announcement from Michael Bennett and Maria Kanellis!
