After using questionable tactics when he first came to ROH several months ago, PJ Black has vowed to be an honorable competitor going forward. At War of the Worlds in Toronto on May 9, he will face a man who is unapologetic in his total disregard for the Code of Honor and sportsmanship, RUSH.
While one can question RUSH’s integrity, no one can deny “El Toro Blanco’s” immense talent. The Mexican star -- who is popular with fans in spite of his attitude -- has been undefeated since debuting in ROH at the end of last year. RUSH has scored victories over the likes of Bandido, Mark Haskins, Tracy Williams and former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle, who RUSH steamrolled in 16 seconds at G1 Supercard earlier this month.
Black thus far has been a man of his word in regard to playing by the rules. But if the South African star is to have a realistic chance of handing RUSH his first loss, he will likely have to fight fire with fire.
Can Black knock RUSH from the ranks of the unbeaten? Or will he become RUSH’s next victim?
Join us in Toronto or live on HonorClub to find out who will prevail in the exciting first-time-ever match-up!
