Champions vs. All Stars is the highly anticipated match up featuring the ROH World Champion, ROH World Television Champion & ROH World Tag Team Champions taking on the ROH All Stars, all top contenders to their titles in an 8 man tag team elimination match.
This year’s match will be an odd one, as there are only 3 title holders in ROH. The Kingdom (Matt Taven & Michael Bennett) are the current ROH World Tag Team Champions and Jay Lethal is the undisputed ROH World & World Television Champion. This situation poses a problem as Lethal has top contenders to both of his championships who want a shot at knocking him from his perch.
“The Phenomenal” AJ Styles is the #1 contender to Jay Lethal’s ROH World Championship after All Star Extravaganza VII and would love to prove himself as an all-star and contender. Due to the ending moments of both of their matches at All Star Extravaganza VII, “The Infamous” Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly could be considered as both singles competitors and top contenders to the tag team championships. They would are both looking for an opportunity to get back at Jay Lethal. “Mr ROH” Roderick Strong has a sour taste in his mouth after taking Lethal to a 60 minute draw at Death Before Dishonor, then getting the short end of a return match after The HOT interfered. He is still performing at an elite level and winning matches, which keeps him in the hunt for a spot.
The Addiction, War Machine, The Briscoes and The Young Bucks are all looking to get their hands on the Kingdom. The Addiction were not pinned when they lost their championships and have been claiming that there was a conspiracy to get the championships off them. War Machine recently defeated The Kingdom on ROH Television, they were successful on a recent tour of Japan and they believe it is their time. The Young Bucks had The Addiction defeated at ASE VII when Taven sneaked in and stole the victory out from under them. The brash duo would be great teammates with a strong desire to not only win, but look great doing it. The Briscoes are the measuring sticks in tag team wrestling! They are former 8x tag team champions and an invitation to the All Stars would be something the Briscoes and fans would love.
The pressure is now on ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness. We have heard rumblings coming from his office that he is currently going to change the format to a 6 man Champions vs. All Stars match up. This would be the first time in history and speaks to the greatness of Jay Lethal. Truth Martini, who claims to be the greatest manager in ROH history, is on top of this. He has threatened to hold out on signing any contract with Jay Lethal unless the Champions vs All Stars match is fair to the champ.
