WILL OSPREAY vs. JAY WHITE
2016 saw stars from all around the globe descend up ROH. In June, former New Japan Young Lion New Zealander Jay White made his ROH debut the night after Best in the World defeating now-ROH World Champion “Almighty” Christopher Daniels. ROH traveled to the UK in November and it was there that native son “The Aerial Assassin” Will Ospreay captured the ROH World Television Championship in his very first match defeating Bobby Fish.
Both White and Ospreay came to ROH bristling with potential but have shocked many with just how quickly the two have found the intersection of opportunity and execution. White carried an undefeated streak in singles competition for nearly nine-months that saw him defeat some of the top stars the world over. Ospreay cemented his name in the ROH record books with his championship victory in his debut match.
Two of the fastest-rising stars in ROH history will meet in singles competition for the VERY FIRST TIME! These two have competed on opposite ends of tag team battles, including their battle in the high-energy, high-flying international tag team dream match at Supercard of Honor XI. These two young stars have a lot to prove as they look for championship opportunities and will do battle in a match that has been one of the most-requested by ROH fans!
In front of a sold-out crowd in New York City, two of the world’s best young stars will do battle one on one for the very first time! If you didn’t get tickets, the only way to watch this is LIVE on Pay Per View, Fite TV app, Playstation Network, or ROHWrestling.com!
