It all comes down to Sinclair making the ass-backwards decision to deliberately put themselves in the position of having to strip the belt instead of actually making money from a big, well-built title match. If it's an angle, it's a stupid one. But maybe they love tournaments!
If it leads into their next big program for the company ...."Real ROH Champion" vs "Tournament ROH Champion" . They can have a stable around this tournament champion who wins and maybe even turn Nigel heel. That he's the reason they are doing this ...to screw Jay Briscoe.

Well as I noted a page before, Taishi Takizawa is never returning to WWE now.
What other Japanese talent can they get?
My amazon reviews, check them out sometime!
Or they could sign these guys
Bray Wyatt over in japan.
I hope the crowd reacts to him next week, because he was one of the last things they pushed on Raw.
Odd that it's the week before a ppv, i would wait until after, as it sort of telegraphs he's going to be involved in a match.
Granted, I think the crazy/Napoleon complex thing he's got going on right now works way better with the hobo beard, but still.
