On Friday September 20th & Saturday the 21st, Ring of Honor Wrestling comes home to Philadelphia for the first time since "Homecoming 2012" with "Death Before Dishonor XI" weekend! ROH's return to the National Guard Armory will be highlighted by a specific mission in the crowning of a new ROH World Champion with both the semi-finals and finals of the tournament will take place on Friday night. Adam Cole has already earned his way to the semi-finals and the other three competitors will be determined this weekend in NYC at "Manhattan Mayhem V".
In addition to the tournament action, you can expect all of the top-shelf pro wrestling that Ring of Honor strives to deliver to its fans each and every event. With that said, ROH officials are extremely excited to announce that we have finalized a deal with one of the most experienced international competitors out there, a man who has competed under the ROH banner just one time back in 2007, none other than the former GHC Jr. Heavyweight and former 3-Time GHC Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion, Ricky Marvin!
Marvin, whose sole ROH action came at the "Live in Tokyo" event as part of a 6-Man tag against Naomichi Marufuji & The Briscoes with Atsushi Aoki & Matt Sydal as his partners, has been competing around the world since 1995. During that time he has amassed championships in NOAH, in CMLL, and under the NWA banner, just to name a few and has globally competed against the best of the best. Most recently, Marvin is coming off of the Pro Wrestling NOAH G+ Cup Jr. Heavyweight Tag League (the same tournament in which Roderick Strong was involved) where he teamed with Super Crazy and the pair made it to the finals of their block.
Now Marvin will bring his near two decades of experience to the ROH ring on September 20th & 21st for "Death Before Dishonor XI" weekend in Philadelphia! Who will his opponents be on those evenings?
