They are three of the top guys in ROH, and three of the best wrestlers in the world, period. Their combined accomplishments in ROH, if listed, would boggle one’s mind. They’re the current and two previous ROH World Champions, Davey Richards, Eddie Edwards, and Roderick Strong, and at Showdown in the Sun – Day 1, only one will be the top dog in ROH.
With the announcement this week of the three way elimination match for the title that will main event the first day of Showdown in the Sun, one finds themselves reflecting on the immense history between the three. Without even focusing on the fact that the three have spent a combined total of the last 17 months as ROH World Champion, the feuds and matches these men have put on are nothing short of incredible. With all three holding victories over the other two, and Richards and Edwards’ splintered partnership in the American Wolves, emotions will definitely be running high on March 30th.
All of that taken into consideration, it’s not far fetched to say that this may be the biggest match in ROH history. One thing is for certain: at Showdown in the Sun, one of the three will walk out as ROH World Champion. Predicting anything other than that, in such an unpredictable situation, is borderline impossible. This all comes to a head in Ft. Lauderdale as ROH presents Showdown in the Sun!
