Former allies Alex Shelley and Jonathan Gresham will face each other for the first time at Glory By Honor in New Orleans on Oct. 12.
At first glance, Shelley versus Gresham looks like it should be a classic, ROH-style match, but given Gresham’s newfound willingness to win at any cost, it may not end up being such an “honorable” match.
Shelley issued the challenge to Gresham at the Global Wars Espectacular tour in Dearborn, Mich., earlier this month. Shelley was addressing the crowd and talking about wanting to face the top competitors in ROH when Gresham interrupted him.
Gresham, who was part of the Search and Destroy faction with Shelley and others a couple years ago, said that he and Shelley had talked about restoring honor to ROH, but Shelley dropped the ball by losing to ROH World Champion Matt Taven at Summer Supercard in August. Gresham said he’s been in ROH a few years now and hasn’t been handed opportunities like Shelley has, and that angers him.
Shelley said if Gresham wants to find out how good he really is, they should wrestle each other at Glory by Honor. Gresham walked away without answering, but he later accepted the challenge.
