ROH News: Ringmaster's Challenge Returns, New Tuesday Rollout, Tryout Seminar Info
Source: ROH Wrestling- It's been nearly two years since the last Ringmaster's Challenge at Death Before Dishonor IX, between Roderick Strong and Eddie Edwards. ROH officials have announced that on September 7th in Birmingham, Alabama, the Ringmaster's Challenge will return when Roderick Strong takes on Adam Cole.
For those unfamiliar with the match, it's a best out of three falls match. The first fall must be decided by pin fall. The second fall must be decided by submission and the third fall is a 15-minute Iron Man match. Sudden death OT is also available if no clear winner emerges from the Iron Man match.
Strong had this to say to ROHWrestling.com about the match, "This is a test of everything a wrestler has to bring to the table. It's heart and conditioning, grappling and submissions, and I gotta say that you'd be hard pressed to find a guy in ROH that's in better condition than me. So with everything that's been happening the last couple months between me and a certain Adam Cole...spitting on the Code, and the way he took the countout to beat me at Best in the World, not to mention the way we ended up with a DQ on TV, I think it's safe to say that Cole is afraid he can't hang with Mister ROH. Step up to the plate, kid. How about we set aside the World Title tournament for one night in Alabama and we do this with a Ringmaster's challenge?"
