Right, someone needed to start an actual conversation in the ROH thread, so here one is:
Since Roderick Strong is out of the title picture for Final Battle, he has issued an open challenge. Now please dont spoil this thread with spoilers
, but who do you guys think will take it up.
#1 - Nigel McGuiness - This guy seems the most logical guy for me. He got in the ring to back up one of the American Wolves (can't remember which) a couple of weeks back on TV. After this, on the ROH website, Jim Cornett went on saying Nigel should not be in the ring due to him not being a member of the in ring roster. For me this screams he is coming back into the ring. He also kept taking shots at Martini when he was on commentary. That's why he is my favourite. However, he has had several health issues that nobody actually knows the full details of, so this may be impossible.
I would love it to be Nigel, he is great in the ring and even better on the mic. If it is just a one off thing then great, but him becoming a permanent member of the roster would be amazing, as it would add some much needed depth to the main event scene.
#2 - Some Japanese Star - This is a likely option. ROH has frequently utilized japanese talent through out the companies history. Depending who it was, this could vary in quality, but if they got someone big and good, this could be amazing. Giant Bernard would be pretty cool
#3 - Low Ki - How great would this be. I mean, he is on the indies, why not? Like McGuiness, it would add some much needed depth to the main event scene if he joined permanently. But, and it's a big but, he left last time due to a "disagreement in business relationships"... Need I say more...He may also have other commitments in Japan as well, not sure what he is doing over there atm.
So what do you guys think? As I said, please no spoilers
