(Bristol, PA- March 2, 2011)- ROH officials are excited to announce that both ROH World Champion Roderick Strong & former ROH World Tag Champion El Generico have re-signed with Ring of Honor for the foreseeable future!
Roderick Strong, who has been a part of ROH since 2004, is a former ROH World Tag Champion (alongside Austin Aries) with one of the longest title reigns in company history, and in 2010 finally captured the ROH World Title at â€œGlory by Honor IXâ€ from Tyler Black. Since that victory, Strong has successfully defended the belt on five occasions to date, most recently in a â€œBarrio Street Fightâ€ victory over Homicide at our â€œ9th Anniversary Showâ€. Now Roderick looks to back up his claims of being the best ROH World Champion in history by defeating his next challenger, former World Tag & TV Champion Eddie Edwards, at â€œManhattan Mayhem IVâ€ on March 19th.
â€œThe Generic Luchadorâ€ El Generico first competed in ROH back in 2005, and has been a regular part of the roster since 2007. In that time he has captured not only the ROH World Tag Titles alongside Kevin Steen, but has captured the fans like few others who have competed in ROH. Coming off a brutal war that lasted throughout 2010, Generico unsuccessfully challenged Roderick Strong for the ROH World Title at â€œSoCal Showdown IIâ€ in January 2011. Still, Generico remains one of the top contenders for the belt and could very well earn himself another shot at â€œDefy or Denyâ€ in Plymouth, MA on March 18th.
â€œWe are very happy to have both of these exciting wrestlers re-sign with Ring of Honor.â€ said ROH President Cary Silkin, â€œRoderick Strong and El Generico are two of the best wrestlers in the world today, and having them here in ROH just continues to show that we offer the best pound-for-pound wrestling in the world.â€
Both ROH World Champion Roderick Strong & El Generico will be in action when Ring of Honor goes back on the road in Plymouth, MA on March 18th for â€œDefy or Denyâ€ and NYC, NY on March 19th for â€œManhattan Mayhem IVâ€. Tickets for both events are available here.
