[ROH News] Bryan Danielson and Takeshi Morishima are no strangers to one another. Their meeting this Saturday at the Hammerstein Ballroom for Final Battle has been brewing for a long time; the last two stateside singles contests between these men ended in disqualifications, and the most recent of these was a full year ago. In August of 2007 in New York, Bryan sustained an eye injury that required surgery and could have resulted in permanent damage. In November and December of last year, they each traded DQ victories in their attempts to maim one another. It’s been a year since they last met, each man has been anxiously awaiting this opportunity, so given the circumstances, ROH officials made this a Fight Without Honor.. There’s no telling what lengths these two will go to, as not only are they among the best in the sport today, but there is also an intense personal aspect to this match.
