There will be no rules in this one. There will also be two refs, one from each ROH and CZW, to insure the fall is counted fairly.

April 17th: Colt Cabana has been studying the European style of wrestling in preparation for his World Title Match this Saturday in Philadelphia against Bryan Danielson. Cabana hasn’t been able to showcase his wrestling roots in recent months due to his violent feud against Homicide. Cabana, who is already an expert in the European style, has been searching for any trick that can get him the three count and the World Title. Cabana has proven to be very skilled at roll-ups and it only takes three seconds for the World Title to switch hands. This looks to be a wrestling clinic.
