ROH’s next live event Pursuit will take place on Friday November 15th at the Ford Community Center in Dearborn, Michigan. Already announced for this show is Adam Cole defending the ROH World Championship against Jimmy Jacobs. The ROH World Television Championship will also be defended as Matt Taven goes one on one with Zach Gowen. The last time we saw the one-legged-wonder in an ROH ring, he was kicked out of the House of Truth by Truth Martini. After a near three year hiatus, Gowen has the opportunity for redemption by taking the World Television Championship away from Truth Martini and the H.O.T.
Mark Briscoe will go one on one with “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin. At THE GOLDEN DREAM, Michael Elgin and Jay Briscoe, the two #1 contenders for the ROH World Championship, got into a physical altercation that needed separation by ROH officials. Elgin looks to take out his hostility on Jay’s little brother Mark. Mark Briscoe can make a major statement for himself by scoring a win over a World Championship contender, and has the chance to soften Elgin up for his brother.
In two separate triple threat matches, we will see tag team members get a singles match opportunity. In the first match we will see ROH Tag Team Champion Kyle O’Reilly take on ACH and Caprice Coleman. In the second match we will see ROH Tag Team Champion Bobby Fish take on TaDarius Thomas and Cedric Alexander. Which team tag will gain some momentum with singles victories? reDRagon has not only dominated the tag team scene, but they’ve also been nearly perfect in singles action over the past few months. They recently defeated both members of Alabama Attitude in singles competition. Will they continue their singles dominance, will C&C Wrestle Factory get a crucial win heading into their tag title opportunity, or will Adrenaline Rush put themselves into contention for a tag title shot?
Also, “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong will square off against “American Wolf” Davey Richards. Not much needs to be said about this one. Two of the biggest names and longest tenured wrestlers in ROH history will do battle once more. With so many different matches against one another in the past, these two men know each other as well as anyone else in the business. Every time they face off in an ROH ring it has potential to steal the show. This is a crucial match for both competitors, as both men aren’t currently in the mix for an ROH Championship. A win will help elevate either guy towards the top.
