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.
