Roderick Strong Wins Own Open Challenge
Roderick Strong made a severe statement in his open challenge as it was Ikeman Jiro who answered the call. Jiro was the man to answer Strong’s challenge over the weekend and Roddy made him pay by hitting a swift hip toss against the steel steps. Strong remained dominant as Jiro’s back became the focus for the Diamond Mine leader.
Strong wasn’t just accompanied by Malcolm Bivens and Hideki Suzuki of Diamond Mine as the recruits known as the Creed Brothers were ringside as well. Jiro soon gained a brief window of momentum against Strong, but a pop-up vertical backbreaker not once, but twice, kept Ikeman down for the 1-2-3. Roderick Strong makes it clear to KUSHIDA post-match that the Cruiserweight Title is his to hold.
