ROH SUMMER HEAT TOUR presents AFTERSHOCK
JULY 12, 2014 - HOPKINS EISENHOWER CENTER - MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA
Main Event - Six-Man War
Adam Cole, Matt Hardy & Michael Bennett w/ Maria Kanellis vs. *NEW* ROH World Champion “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin & War Machine (Hanson & Rowe)
At BEST IN THE WORLD '14, "Unbreakable" Michael Elgin defeated Adam Cole to become the NEW Ring of Honor World Champion! But it was far from an easy road leading to victory in Nashville.
In the months leading up to ROH's ground breaking first PPV, Adam Cole found strength in numbers with Matt Hardy, Michael Bennett, and Maria Kanellis. The Kingdom did everything they could to ensure Elgin was at a total disadvantage and gold would stay with them. In one of the most disturbing moments in recent memory, they restrained Elgin and forced him to watch while the champ put Elgin's wife, MsChif, in the Figure Four. As the ultimate insult, Adam Cole even shaved his challenger's head!
Then in Nashville during the world championship bout, The Kingdom continued to to interfere on behalf of Adam Cole. But while they may have counted on the four-on-one advantage to ensure victory, THIS time Michael Elgin had some back up off his own! Maria Kanellis received a face full of green mist as MsChif got her revenge. But most surprisingly, the up and coming behemoth tag team WAR MACHINE let the world know that if The Kingdom wants to get to Elgin, they'll have Hanson and Rowe to get through first!
And at the end of the night, we had a NEW ROH World Champion!
Minneapolis, get ready to experience the AFTERSHOCK from the night that rocked Nashville. The first stop on the ROH Summer Heat Tour will see the fallout of the world title match live and in person! The new alliance of Michael Elgin and War Machine is one of the most physically imposing, intense forces imaginable - and on July 12th they team up to take on Adam Cole, Michael Bennett, and Matt Hardy.
It's a SIX MAN WAR in Minneapolis!
