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.

Jeremy "Jerry" Lynn (born June 12, 1963 in Minneapolis, Minnesota) is an American professional wrestler. Best known for his time in Extreme Championship Wrestling, Lynn has competed for various promotions throughout his career, including World Wrestling Entertainment, World Championship Wrestling and Total Nonstop Action, and currently competes for Ring of Honor.

Jerry Lynn began his career in 1988, competing for various independent promotions in Minnesota. In 1995, he began competing for World Championship Wrestling under the name Mr. JL. After being released from WCW in 1997, Lynn made his way to Extreme Championship Wrestling. He was involved in several feuds during his time in ECW, the most famous being his rivalry with "The Whole F'n Show" Rob Van Dam, which began in 1999. During his series of matches against Van Dam, fans began referring to Lynn as "The New F'n Show". Lynn and Van Dams rivalry would continue until ECW closed in 2001, with the two being in the main event of ECW's final pay-per-view.

After ECW closed, Lynn, and several other ECW wrestlers, made their way to World Wrestling Entertainment (then known as the World Wrestling Federation). Lynn would win the WWF Light Heavyweight Championship in his debut match, and would hold it for a month before losing it to Jeff Hardy. Soon after, Lynn was released from his contract. Following his departure, Lynn would compete for Total Nonstop Action. Known as the founding father of the X Division, Lynn would spend his time wrestling several up-and-coming young talent in TNA, including AJ Styles, Low Ki and Amazing Red. He would be an active competitor in TNA until February 2004, when he suffered a severe should injury in a match against Juventud Guerrera. From then on, he worked mainly as a road agent, helping to book matches for the X Division and coaching the younger wrestlers, and would only occasionally wrestle. Lynn would leave TNA in August 2007 after asking for his release.

Following his release from TNA in 2007, Lynn began to compete in independent promotions again. He made his return to Ring of Honor at Vendetta II on June 28, 2008, competing in singles match against Nigel McGuinness, now the ROH World Champion. Despite losing, the fans gave Lynn a standing ovation, chanting "You've still got it!" Lynn would return to ROH three months later at the pay-per-view taping for Driven 2008, losing to Chris Hero of Sweet n' Sour Inc. Lynn would be successful the following night, defeating Kenny King of The YRR. Shortly there after, it was announced the Jerry Lynn would be competing for Ring of Honor on a regular basis.(more...)
