-- ROH announced the following today… For ROH's return to Richmond, VA on January 14, 2011 officials wanted to deliver something special for the fans at Raceway Complex. An exciting way to kick off our 9th year, and deliver the top-shelf wrestling action fans have come to expect from Ring of Honor. Well after much deliberation, we have set up a match featuring eight of the premier athletes within the ROH locker room! On one side of the ring will be ROH World Champion Roderick Strong, ROH World Tag Team Champions Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli, and ROH World TV Champion Christopher Daniels! On the other side: Davey Richards, Jay & Mark Briscoe, and El Generico! ROH's four champions versus four of ROH's All-Stars! "I look at this, and I am obviously the odd man out." stated Christopher Daniels, "Roderick and I have our issues and I certainly want his belt to join the TV title already around my waist. Chris and I just fought in Louisville, and let's just say I find his methods less than honorable when it comes down to the wire. Claudio, Chris, and I have history, and I wonder if the two of you still hold a grudge for me claiming the tag titles many years ago. Suffice to say I will have to have eyes in the back of my head for this one no doubt, and that's just for the men on my team." "A chance to lay a beating on the Kings and Roddy? Count us in." said Jay Briscoe, "Sorry about your luck Chris, you just happen to be on the wrong side of this one. My eyes are on Roddy and the Kings, but if we gotta fight, we gotta fight." This loaded 8-Man tag will certainly set the stage for the following night in Charlotte where Hero takes on Richards and Jay takes on Roderick for the World Title. How will these eight men work with one another? Davey has had issues in the past with all three of his partners, as have Generico and the Briscoes. Will the past play a part in the future of these men? Will the champions prove their dominance or will the All-Stars rise to the occasion?
