First-Ever Match Between Bandido And Mark Haskins Set For Atlanta

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Atlanta on Saturday, Jan. 12 for an international television taping at Center Stage. All the top stars in Ring of Honor will do battle on a can’t-miss, action-packed event.

All roads lead to the G1 Supercard, co-promoted by ROH and New Japan Pro-Wrestling, at sold-out Madison Square Garden on April 6, 2019, and the happenings in Atlanta undoubtedly will have an impact on the historic show.

ROH recently signed two of pro wrestling’s hottest free agents in Bandido and Mark Haskins, and they will make their debuts in Atlanta -- against each other in a first-time-ever matchup!

BANDIDO vs. MARK HASKINS

Big things are expected of Bandido and Haskins in ROH, but rather taking the more traditional approach of debuting them in individual “showcase matches,” ROH matchmakers wasted no time in having the two buzzworthy competitors clash.

Bandido was one of 2018’s breakout stars, as the 23-year-old sensation wowed audiences all around the globe. The fourth-generation luchador competed in the prestigious Battle of Los Angeles in September and made it all the way to the finals. Also that month, he participated in the six-man tag match that headlined the All In pay-per-view before more than 11,000 fans at the sold-out Sears Centre near Chicago.

Haskins, one of the top stars in the UK, made strong showings when he competed on ROH shows in the UK this year and last. The hard-hitting native of Oxford, England won the inaugural ROH International Cup this past August on the Honor Re-United UK Tour, and he went on to push ROH World Champion Jay Lethal to the limit in a match hailed as one of the best in ROH in 2018. Despite being just 30, Haskins has 12 years of experience and holds victories over some of the biggest names in the sport.

Both Bandido and Haskins are determined to begin their ROH careers on a winning note, but only one can do so. Will it be the high-flying Bandido or the tough-as-nails Haskins? Join us LIVE in Atlanta to find out!
