Ring of Honor announced the following on Tuesday:
ALBERTO EL PATRON VS. “THE FALLEN ANGEL” CHRISTOPHER DANIELS!
This is a first time ever match against a Ring of Honor original! Since returning to ROH, The Fallen Angel has been reinvigorated and ready to take on absolutely anyone from anywhere. The Addiction has made a huge impact on the ROH tag team division, but Daniels is also pursuing a singles career and having stellar matches against the best in Ring of Honor. Nigel McGuinness couldn’t think of a better introduction to our elite roster than “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!
Daniels is one of the most well-rounded athletes in all of professional wrestling. He refuses to limit himself and that makes him an especially challenging opponent. Daniels can match anyone hold-for-hold, but he’s not afraid to take to the sky either! This long tenured veteran has emerged as one of the most respected and successful professional wrestlers competing today, an athlete whose experience and savvy might be unmatched within the ROH locker room. According to Nigel McGuinness, all of these qualities made him the ideal “welcoming committee” for Alberto El Patron in Ring of Honor. On January 3rd, you will have the privilege of watching two of the best do what they love in front of the greatest fans on the planet!
Alberto El Patron’s hybrid style combines MMA training with an eclectic mix of Mexican and American pro wrestling techniques. For years, El Patron has stood out as an exceptional talent against anyone who faced him. But any wrestling fan couldn’t help but think: what if he had the chance to take on ANYONE in professional wrestling, unrestricted and unrestrained? Finally, that day has arrived. El Patron has been making waves since returning to competition in Mexico, recently securing the AAA Heavyweight Championship. Crowds around the world have exploded every time he makes his entrance. So you know that January 3rd in Nashville is guaranteed to be a very special night for anyone in attendance!
In addition to a stellar live event featuring the ROH debut of Alberto El Patron, January 3rd is also a taping for ROH TV! Our cameras will be rolling to capture everything that goes down while we kick of 2015. Whether you’re in the crowd or behind the scenes, the verdict is unanimous: 2014 was the biggest year ever for Ring of Honor’s growth and global exposure. But we promise that 2015 will be even bigger! Starting off with the TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT and the debut of ALBERTO EL PATRON, 2015 has gotten rolling before it’s even officially started! You need to be there LIVE on January 3rd when Ring of Honor returns to Nashville.
