- NEVER Openweight Champion, Minoru Suzuki, spoke with NJPW on a number of topics including his upcoming ROH World Championship match against Cody Rhodes at tonight's Death Before Dishonor XV PPV. Despite being the challenger in this specific match, Suzuki thinks otherwise.

"Get this right. I am not the 'challenger' here," Suzuki said. "Cody, ROH, the whole of America is choosing to challenge Minoru Suzuki. That's what this match is. But it doesn't matter to me. All of America! Stand up and come at me. Just try."

It should also be noted the article said Death Before Dishonor XV will be a VOD on NJPW World in a few days. Be sure to join our live coverage tonight's ROH PPV, starting at 9pm ET!
