The Wire is teasing a lot of unrest in the ROH World Title scene, specifically between Tyler Black and Roderick Strong:
“ROH officials are sorting through the Roderick Strong/Tyler Black/World Title situation. Black publicly offered Strong the first crack at the ROH World Title, but in the middle of it all, things got physical and Strong was superkicked by Black during the bout in New York. Sources can now confirm that an altercation took place backstage between Black and Strong, with both Austin Aries and Jim Cornette present. It was intimated that video footage of this incident will air during an upcoming episode of ROH on HDNet. Meanwhile, Pick 6 competitors have been submitting petitions for a chance to face Black, many of whom hold a higher rank than Roderick Strong. Adding to the drama, Austin Aries has officially demanded his championship rematch. Unnamed ROH officials indicated to us that Black has not backed off of his word, and continues to stand by his offer to Strong. In the meantime, ROH officials are also reviewing a contract that was previously signed by both Strong and Black for ROHâ€™s return to Toronto. Weâ€™ll have more on this next week, but it was explained that neither man, especially Strong, is happy about what they signed for.”
