ROH issued the following:
With the calendar closing on Ring of Honor’s biggest year ever, 2017 is poised to be even bigger! The Best Wrestling on the Planet starts 2017 with a return to Atlanta’s historic Center Stage for the first time in six years for an international television taping on Jan. 14.
Just signed for the show is an ROH World Television Title Match between champion Marty Scurll and New Japan Pro-Wrestling star Juice Robinson.
Scurll has made a huge impact since signing an exclusive contract with ROH in November.
In just his third match with the company, “The Villain” captured the ROH World Television Title from fellow British star Will Ospreay during ROH’s Reach for the Sky tour on Nov. 20 in London.
Scurll went on to successfully defend the title at the Final Battle pay-per-view on Dec. 2 against Ospreay and CMLL sensation Dragon Lee in a Triple Threat Match.
Robinson, who signed with NJPW during the latter part of 2015, had the best year of his eight-year career in 2016, as he has more than held his own against the top competitors in NJPW.
Recently, Robinson formed a successful tag team with Japanese superstar Hiroshi Tanahashi in the World Tag League tournament, and he is scheduled to face Cody in a singles match at the huge Wrestle Kingdom 11 show on Jan. 4 at the Tokyo Dome.
ROH officials have announced that Robinson will assume Scurll’s title commitments if he wins the championship in Atlanta.
Join us on Jan. 14 to see who walks out of Atlanta with the gold around their waist!
