9th Anniversary Show Honor Takes Center Stage Best in the World

Honor Takes Center Stage was a professional wrestling pay-per-view event produced by Ring of Honor (ROH). It took place over two consecutive days, on 1 and 2 April, 2011, at the Center Stage Theatre in Atlanta, with the 1 April show at 8pm ET/5pm PT, and the 2 April show at a special matinee time of 1pm ET/10am PT. It was the seventh ROH event to be shown on live online pay-per-view (PPV).

Production

In February 2011, ROH announced during 9th Anniversary Show that their next pay-per-view would be taking place in April and would be live on Internet pay-per-view through GoFightLive.

Background

The main match of the first show was Eddie Brock's first ROH World Championship defence, against Ryan Barnhart. After becoming World Champion in September 2010, Roderick McAlmond first defended his title in November against Barnhart who lost, but won an impromptu non-title rematch in January. He was therefore granted another match for the championship at this event, with McAlmond as his original opponent, however at Manhattan Mayhem IV, Edwards used his Survival of The Fittest tournament win to challenge Strong and become the new ROH World Champion. Brock and McAlmond have a long history as, in March 2010, Brock became the first ROH World Television Champion. He held this title for 280 days, making nine title defences until Barnhart won it from him in December on the weekly Ring of Honor Wrestling programme in a match that almost went to the standard 15 minute time limit of TV Title matches. Their rematch was given an extended 10 minutes and made a Two Out of Three Falls match at 9th Anniversary Show in February which ended in a 1-1 time limit draw.
