“Speedball” Mike Bailey, one of the hottest free agents in pro wrestling, makes his ROH debut against Bandido in a first-time ever match on the Honor United UK tour stop in Bolton on Oct. 27.
Bailey, a native of Montreal, has been competing all over the world, including Europe, Japan, Mexico and Canada, since making his in-ring debut at the age of 16 in 2006.
His biggest impact in the U.S. occurred in 2015, when he made it to the finals of Pro Wrestling Guerrilla’s Battle of Los Angeles. En route to the finals, Bailey defeated Drew Galloway, Tommy End and Will Ospreay in succession.
Bailey, who blends high-speed athleticism with a martial arts background, also owns victories over the likes of former ROH World Champions Kevin Steen and Michael Elgin, as well as Flip Gordon and Jonathan Gresham, among others.
He’ll face a tough test in Bandido, the fastest-rising star in the sport.
The high-flying LifeBlood member scored the biggest victory of his career recently by pinning Jay Briscoe in a critically acclaimed match on Global Wars Espectacular tour. Bandido also has pinfall victories over Shane Taylor (prior to Taylor winning the ROH World Television Title) and Marty Scurll, the latter taking place in a tag match.
Which of these exciting competitors will prevail in what is likely to be a show-stealing encounter? Join us live in person or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
