In the ultimate display of confidence, Joe Hendry’s first official T-shirt in ROH has “World Champ” written on it. On the Honor United UK tour stop in Newport on Oct. 26, Hendry will have an opportunity to show how he matches up with a man who held the ROH World Title until just recently -- Matt Taven.
This is the first match Taven has been announced for since his 174-day reign as ROH World Champion was ended by RUSH at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept 27. Taven will undoubtedly be looking to get back on the winning track on his quest to regain the championship.
Hendry is eager to prove that he belongs in the world championship conversation. “The Prestigious One” recently took ROH World Television Champion Shane Taylor to a 15-minute draw, thus earning a title match against Taylor, which will take place on Oct. 25 in London. That means Hendry could be the ROH World Television Champion when he faces Taven the next night in Newport.
Who will come out on top in this compelling, first-time-ever matchup? Join us live in person or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
