World Championship Match Added To Ring Of Honor Card In Houston, TX

0

ROH has added a few more matches to their Houston card on the Road to G1 Supercard tour. Including a match that will see Vinny Marseglia challenge Jay Lethal for the Ring of Honor World Championship.

The following match preview and updated card are from ROHWrestling.com:

ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH

ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL vs. VINNY MARSEGLIA

Lethal was originally scheduled to defend the championship in Houston against Chris Sabin, who earned the title opportunity by taking Lethal to a 20-minute draw in a Proving Ground Match in November. However, Sabin suffered a knee injury during ROH’s international television taping in Atlanta Jan. 12 and will be out of action for an unspecified amount of time.

With Lethal needing a new opponent, The Kingdom’s Marseglia stepped up to issue a sinister challenge. However, The Horror King made it clear that he has no interest in becoming ROH World Champion. That’s because he considers Kingdom leader Matt Taven to be the real world champion and Lethal to be a fraud.

Marseglia, obviously doing Taven’s bidding, has vowed to defeat Lethal in Houston and then drop the ROH World Title belt in the garbage.

Lethal, the epitome of a fighting champion, immediately accepted Marseglia’s challenge, and ROH officials have sanctioned it.

Will Lethal send a message to Taven by making an example of Marseglia? Or will Marseglia do the unthinkable by upsetting Lethal and trashing the belt?

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas Jan. 24-26 will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more first-round match announcements.
