ROH World Champion Roderick Strong has now successfully defended his title on five separate occasions against five different opponents: Christopher Daniels, Davey Richards, Jay Briscoe, El Generico, and Homicide. While he has retained the title each time, he has gotten increasingly desperate with each defense. The “9th Anniversary Show”, which saw the interference of both Truth Martini & Michael Elgin and was contested with essentially no rules, served as a great example of what lengths Strong will go to in order to maintain his hold on the title he fought so hard, and for so long, to finally win.

Wrestling debut


Douglas Clayton Durdle (born September 1, 1972 in Reading, Berkshire) is an English professional wrestler best known by his stage name, Doug Williams. Currently working for Total Nonstop Action as well as several promotions internationally, Williams previously competed for Ring of Honor, where he won the ROH Pure Championship.

Before becoming a professional wrestler, Doug Durdle study Judo, winning the British Judo Championship (72kg weight class) in 1992. In 1993, Durdle began training with NWA UK Hammerlock, where he would later compete under the name Doug Williams. He would spend the next several years competing for various promotions in England, winning several championships in the process.

During Williams' time competing for Frontier Wrestling Alliance, he began to compete for the independent American promotion Ring of Honor.

In 2002, Doug Williams began wrestling for Ring of Honor, where he would make several appearances for over the course of several years. He debuted for the promotion at Road to the Title on June 22, defeating Jay Briscoe and later American Dragon. This victory earned Williams a spot in a Four-Way Sixty Minute Iron Man match the following month to crown the first ROH Champion. Low Ki would win the match, but the main issue to arise for Williams was over Christopher Daniels, who did not abide by the Code of Honor, refused to shake his hand after the match.

Williams would return to face Daniels at Glory by Honor, with the match having an added stipulation. Should Williams win, Daniels would be forced to disband his heel faction, The Prophecy, and adhere to the Code of Honor, but if Daniels won, Williams would no longer be allowed to shake hands in ROH, forcing him to continually break the Code of Honor. After defeating Williams, Daniels mockingly offered to shake his hand. His feud with Christopher Daniels would continue the next month, when he teamed with Low Ki and Homicide in a losing effort against Daniels, Donovan Morgan and Samoa Joe of The Prophecy. Later that month, he lost to Bryan Danielson in a 30 minute Iron Man match, one fall to zero. Backstage after the match, Williams challenged Danielson to a Two out of Three Falls match to find out who the better wrestler was. The match would never take place. (more)
