This Saturday afternoon, January 22, 2011, “ROH on HDNet” will wrap up after two years of television tapings at The Asylum Arena in South Philadelphia. During those two years, the Arena has seen World Title matches, Tag Title Matches, the crowning of a Television champion, has been part of a farewell tour for 2 ROH legends, and has seen many a great match between the best wrestlers in the world. Now it all comes to a close with six of the best collide in a 6-Man Tag Team Grudge Match: ROH World Champion Roderick Strong and ROH World Tag Champions Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe and Davey Richards!!!
All of these men were involved in an 8-man tag in Richmond, VA last Friday night where Mark Briscoe scored the winning pin over ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels, and that loss did not sit well with World Champion Roderick Strong.
“Thankfully in Philly we won’t have to carry the burden of a weak link.” stated The Champ, “Chris and Claudio held their own on Friday, and it was Daniels who cost us the win, the bragging rights, and the big money waiting for the winners. Now, without that ball and chain, the real champions of ROH will close the door on HDNet with a win. There’s your truth, and to steal a line, the truth reigns supreme.”
“Roderick, Roderick, Roderick.” offered Davey Richards, “You are sadly mistaken. Chris Daniels wasn’t a weak link. As a matter of fact, he was the only real fighter on your team. He lost because he competed. You lost because you ran. Now, on the same stage where Eddie and I won the tag titles, you and I are going to war once more. We beat you in Richmond, I made Hero tap out in Charlotte, and now in Philly…well boys, in Philly we will dominate you. That will be my parting gift to HDNet; ROH World Champion Roderick Strong tapping out in front of the world.”
HDNet has seen the bad blood between The Briscoes and Kings Of Wrestling explode on numerous occasions, it has seen the rivalry between Roderick Strong & Davey Richards escalate over the last few months, and now it will be farewell to ROH with these 6 warriors fighting for dominance. Which team will have their hand raised as we fade to black and roll the credits?
