Eli Isom has come a long way since making his ROH debut at the end of 2017, but he will face the biggest test of his young career -- both literally and figuratively -- when he challenges ROH World Television Champion Shane Taylor for the title at Mass Hysteria in Lowell, Mass., on July 21.
The 24-year-old graduate of the ROH Dojo actually owns a pinfall victory over Taylor. In a Four Corner Survival Match last August, Isom scored a huge upset by rolling up Taylor for a three count. Since then, Isom has held his own against the likes of Jeff Cobb, Kenny King and Silas Young while also forming a successful six-man tag team -- Shinobi Shadow Squad -- with Cheeseburger and Ryan Nova.
The veteran Taylor has become a breakout star in 2019. The bad man from the mean streets of East Cleveland stunned fans by winning the ROH World Television Title in a Four Corner Survival Match over Brody King, Hirooki Goto and then-champion Jeff Cobb in May, and then proved that his victory was no fluke by defeating the ultra-talented Bandido in his first title defense at the Best in the World pay-per-view on June 28.
Will Taylor make Isom his next victim, or will Isom pull off another major upset and walk out of Lowell as the new ROH World Television Champion? Join us live in person or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
