It’s no secret that Roderick Strong will do whatever it takes to put himself back into ROH World Title contention. The most direct route? For Strong, it seems to be drawing the irritation of the champ. At Final Battle, Strong promised to steal the spotlight from the main event of Davey Richards vs. Eddie Edwards, and he attempted to do just that. Coming to ringside in the middle of the match, Strong was confronted by Team Richards member Kyle O’Reilly, causing a brawl to break out, and all involved parties were sent to the locker room.
Both O’Reilly and Richards will certainly be looking for revenge in Norfolk, VA. For on that night, the two will team to face Strong and fellow House of Truth member “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin in a tag team main event. For Richards and O’Reilly, it’s an opportunity to gain a little satisfaction from the near ruining of the Final Battle main event. For Strong, the opportunity to further get under the champion’s skin, and perhaps pick up a huge victory. This situation will come to a head January 21st!
