Ring of Honor returns to Baltimore for Death Before Dishonor XIII on July 24th with an incredible night of wrestling action that the world will see on iPPV. But the following night, Saturday July 25th at a special 6pm start time, ROH rocks “Charm City” with a huge National TV Taping with episodes that will be seen coast-to-coast on both the Sinclair Broadcast Group stations as well as Destination America, once again from the William J Myers Pavilion.
Here is the first match to be announced for the July 25th TV Taping.
ROH World Television Championship
JAY LETHAL (CHAMPION) WITH TRUTH MARTINI VS HANSON
After Jay Lethal was victorious at Best in the World, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness gave Lethal the choice of which title he wanted to keep, either the ROH World Championship or the ROH World Television Championship. Whether it was greed, hubris or complete confidence, the definitive, undisputed Champion of Ring of Honor kept both titles but now must deal with the consequences.
At Death Before Dishonor XIII on Friday July 24th, Jay Lethal defends the ROH World Championship against “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong and then on Saturday July 25th, Lethal has to defend the ROH World Television Championship against the “Warbeard from War Machine”, Hanson.
Not only has Hanson main-evented the “13th Anniversary” Pay-Per-View back in March but the 2014 Top Prospect Tournament winner earned a spot in the 2014 “Survival of the Fittest” finals with a pinfall win over Jay Lethal! Hardly a fluke win, Hanson scored the victory over Lethal with a dominating moonsault that sent shockwaves throughout the tournament and nearly tore the House of Truth to its core.
Hanson owns a win over Lethal, a rare commodity against the true “Best in the World” and he enters the July 25th World TV title match with the confidence gained from his previous victory as well knowing that Lethal will go through a certainly grueling match the night before.
This is what Jay Lethal wanted. He wanted to be both ROH World Champion and ROH World Television Champion and within the span of 24 hours, he could lose both. Consequences…
Will history be made or will Lethal defy the odds? You have to see it live and experience Ring of Honor Wrestling in person!
