“Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams has already competed in several main events since signing with ROH late last year, and now the LifeBlood member has earned an opportunity to challenge for the ROH World Title.
Williams will face ROH World Champion Matt Taven when ROH makes it’s Pacific Northwest debut at State of the Art, an international television taping, in Kent, Wash., on June 1.
Williams gained the title shot by winning a Four Corner Survival Match at War of the Worlds in Grand Rapids, Mich., on May 11 over Eli Isom, PJ Black and RUSH.
Taven is no stranger to the LifeBlood faction. On that same show in Grand Rapids, Taven barely escaped with his title -- thanks in large part to interference from Bully Ray -- in an impromptu match against LifeBlood’s Mark Haskins. (In fairness to Taven, it was his second match of the night. Earlier, he and fellow Kingdom members TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia defeated Bullet Club (The Guerrillas of Destiny and Hikuleo) in a six-man tag match.)
Can Williams pull off the upset and leave Kent as the new ROH World Champion? Or will Taven conquer another contender to his throne? Join us live to find out!
