The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Concord, NC at the Cabarrus Arena on Friday, February 9 for HONOR REIGNS SUPREME! All of your favorite Ring of Honor stars will do battle in the during a night of unforgettable action!
After a successful Global Wars Tour that saw him go 3-0 in singles matches, a victory over “The Villain” Marty Scurll at Final Battle, and kicking of 2018 with a win on television against current IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Will Ospreay, Jay Lethal once again finds himself on top of the world and amongst the top contenders for the ROH World Championship.
In Concord, Lethal looks to keep his winning ways going against a man who continues to make a name for himself around the globe and in ROH with a pure style of wrestling, Jonathan Gresham!
JAY LETHAL vs. JONATHAN GRESHAM
Jay Lethal’s accomplishments speak for themselves. For two years, Lethal held either one or both of the ROH World and ROH World Television Championships. His successes have earned him the label of “The Franchise”, a man who has become so synonymous with ROH that you cannot think of The Best Wrestling on the Planet without thinking of Lethal.
Lethal spent much of 2017 locked in a brutal feud with current ROH World Television Champion Silas Young. Following their bout at Death Before Dishonor, Lethal looked to get back on track and did so with wins against Frankie Kazarian, Hiromu Takahashi, Jay White, Marty Scurll, and Will Ospreay. Heading into 2018, Lethal was the first to challenge new ROH World Champion Dalton Castle face-to-face, looking to stake his claim to a shot at becoming ROH World Champion for the second time!
But in between Lethal and Castle is a man who is one of the most accomplished wrestlers in the world under the age of 30, Jonathan Gresham! Gresham has used technical precision and a decade of experience in 14 countries and four continents to outwrestle and outsmart almost everyone he has been in the ring with. And after wins against Josh Woods, TK O’Ryan, and Vinny Marseglia, Gresham, who vowed on Coleman’s Pulpit to bring back a more Pure wrestling style, is taking his shot in the city he was born and became a pro wrestler in against his biggest challenge to date!
A win for Lethal against one of the best, young wrestlers in the world would bolster his case for a ROH World Title match. For Gresham, a win against Lethal would elevate his own status in the ROH World and Television Championship pictures! Who will win this first-time bout? Join us in Concord to find out!
