ROH crowns a NEW World Champ in Philly this weekend. Who will it be?
Let’s run down the card.
Adam Cole vs. Tomasso Ciampa:
I can see this being a “Match of the Year contender” very easily. Adam Cole is obviously stellar and is becoming a fixture in the upper echelon of ROH. Tomasso Ciampa has looked excellent since his return to ROH and it would be hard to dispute this is the biggest match of his career.
This match made the show so appealing to me when I was considering making the trip to Philly that unfortunately fell through. I really expect a special match here and I hope whoever wins is the person to become ROH Champ.
Interest Level: 10/10
Prediction: Adam Cole advances.
Michael Elgin vs. Kevin Steen:
Much like the other semi-finals match, this should deliver. Michael Elgin has great matches every show and Kevin Steen is the biggest star in ROH at the moment. It’s hard for that to not deliver.
Unlike the other match where I can see the very slight chance of a Ciampa upset, I don’t think there’s any way Elgin doesn’t advance. We’ll break down the finals later.
Interest Level: 8/10
Prediction: Michael Elgin advances. Continue reading
