ROH World Champion Roderick Strong has now successfully defended his title on five separate occasions against five different opponents: Christopher Daniels, Davey Richards, Jay Briscoe, El Generico, and Homicide. While he has retained the title each time, he has gotten increasingly desperate with each defense. The “9th Anniversary Show”, which saw the interference of both Truth Martini & Michael Elgin and was contested with essentially no rules, served as a great example of what lengths Strong will go to in order to maintain his hold on the title he fought so hard, and for so long, to finally win.

Paul Sanchez-Garcia London (born April 16, 1980 in Austin, Texas) is an American professional wrestler. After begining his career at the Shawn Michaels Wrestling Academy, London made his way to Ring of Honor in 2002. London is recognized as ROH's first home-grown star, going from wrestling lower card matches, to become a midcard wrestler with his feud with Michael Shane, to become one of ROH's top stars in less than a year. London's matches were offten accompanied by fans chanting "Please don't die!", in reference to his fast paced, high-flying offense. He would leave ROH in the summer of 2003 for World Wrestling Entertainment, where he would compete for five years.

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Paul London first began wrestling as a teenager, creating and captaining the first wrestling team for Westlake High School. After graduating, London trained at various wrestling schools in West Memphis, Arkansas, before settling on the Texas Wrestling Academy in San Antonio, Texas in 2000. The school was founded by former WWF wrestler Shawn Michaels, with Rudy Boy Gonzalez acting as head trainer. The TWA, London would compete for various promotions around Texas, and later for the Philadelphia-based Ring of Honor.

In April 2003, London scored one of the biggest victories in his independent career when he won the annual ECWA Super 8 tournament.

Paul London made his Ring of Honor debut at the Round Robin Challenge on March 30, 2002, taking on fellow Texas Wrestling Academy wrestler Chris Marvel. The match was lasted only three minutes, ending early when Marvel broke his ankle when London dove onto him. London returned the following month at Night of Appreciation, competing in a Gauntlet match comprised of TWA wrestlers. He defeated John Hope in the first match, but lost to Michael Shane, the real life cousin Shawn Michaels, in the second. Spanky would ultimately go on to win the gauntlet and be crowned the new "Showstopper". In June, London competed in the Road to the Title tournament, used to crown the first ROH Champion. However, he lost to Spanky in the opening round.

At Crowning a Champion on July 27, London teamed with Don Juan to take on Michael Shane and Bio-Hazard in a tag team match with an added stipulation; the wrestler that scored the pinfall or submission would earn a contract with ROH and be flown to all future shows. Up to that point, the TWA wrestlers had to drive from San Antonio, Texas to Philadelphia to compete on the shows. The match ended in controversy as London had Bio-Hazard pinned with Shane had Don Juan pinned, and the referee counted only for Shane. (more...)
