Josh Woods got sidetracked by his feud with former mentor Silas Young over the past several months, but he never lost sight of his ultimate goal.
After defeating Young in a Last Man Standing Match at Best in the World last month, “The Technical Beast” once again is laser-focused on winning the ROH Pure Title.
Woods will get his long-awaited title shot against ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 12 at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena.
Gresham suffered a fractured cheekbone and eye socket during an eight-man tag match at Glory By Honor Night 2 on Aug. 21, but he is expected to be ready to compete at Death Before Dishonor.
The last time these two met was in the ROH Pure Tournament semifinals. Gresham beat Woods en route to winning the whole thing.
Since then, Woods has worked his way up to being the No. 1 contender by scoring victories in Pure Rules matches over the likes of former ROH World Champions Jay Lethal and Dalton Castle, as well as his nemesis, Young.
Gresham has literally been unbeatable in Pure Rules Matches. “The Octopus” is 12-0 in such bouts, including seven successful title defenses. Gresham has not lost a one-on-one match of any type since December 2019.
Will Gresham continue his dominance of the Pure division? Or will Woods be the first man to beat Gresham in a Pure Rules Match and dethrone him? Join us live in Philadelphia, on pay-per-view or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
