Ring of Honor issued the following to us:
Ring of Honor will return to suburban Minneapolis, Minnesota on Friday July 11 with the Aftershock Tour ’15. The event will take place at the Hopkins Eisenhower Community Center at 7:00 pm. The doors will open at 5:30.
The wrestling world is abuzz with the fallout from Best in the World ’15. ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness went right to work to get the following matches signed for this amazing event:
Triple Threat Main Event
IWGP HEAVYWEIGHT CHAMPION “THE PHENOMENAL” AJ STYLES vs. “MR ROH” RODERICK STRONG vs. KYLE O’REILLY
Roderick Strong is on a record setting pace in 2015. He most recently secured the number 1 contenders position with a big win over Moose & “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin at Best in The World. AJ Styles has been facing and defeating anyone put in front of him, whether its in Japan or in Ring of Honor. He appears to be almost unstoppable. Kyle O’Reilly is known as a great tag team wrestler but is also a solid singles competitor. In March he tapped out new ROH World & Television Champion Jay Lethal and this past April he took Lethal to a time limit draw! You are going to see three of the very best in Ring of Honor face off in Hopkins. They will be focused on being the one who gets the next title opportunity against Jay Lethal!
Mixed Tag Team
UNDISPUTED ROH WORLD & WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION JAY LETHAL & TRUTH MARTINI vs JAY BRISCOE & O.D.B.
Jay Briscoe & Truth Martini made life very tough for former ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe recently. Even before losing his championship to Lethal, Briscoe felt the pressure of the H.O.T. and the constant presence of Martini could have played into Briscoe suffering just his first loss in over 2 years to Lethal. At ROH’s 13th Anniversary they brought One Dirty Briscoe in to even the odds. At every chance O.D.B. had to get him, Martini would slip away! On July 11, Martini won’t be able to run. He will have to stand side by side with Jay Lethal and face off with a very angry Jay Briscoe and O.D.B. This will not be pretty! An enraged Briscoe and O.D.B. looking for vengeance awaits the new champion and his manager.
THE KINGDOM’S ADAM COLE vs reDRagon’s BOBBY FISH
These two larger than life personalities will clash for the first time in singles competition in Ring of Honor! Former ROH World Champion Adam Cole is gaining momentum since returning from a serious shoulder injury. Fish is also gaining momentum, creating a lot of attention after nearly defeating then ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe at War of The Worlds Night 1. There appears to be simmering issues between the Kingdom and reDRagon that have The Kingdom’s Queen, Maria Kanellis, very concerned. It’s the obnoxious former World Champion against the obnoxious former 3x ROH World Tag Team Champion who is looking to stake his claim at singles glory.
