Kenny King Gets His Shot at the ROH World TV Title at Queen City Excellence

The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to The Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC for an international TV taping featuring the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can provide! All of your favorite ROH stars will be in action on Saturday, July 29 with a 7 PM EST bell time! 

The fallout of Best in the World has sent shockwaves throughout the ROH locker room. In Concord, just outside of Charlotte, the Board of Directors has signed a championship match based on recent bouts on ROH Television!

ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPIONSHIP

ROH WORLD TELEVISION CHAMPION WINNER OF KUSHIDA/JAY WHITE vs. KENNY KING

The War of the Worlds Tour proved to be a turning point for KUSHIDA. KUSHIDA began the tour by defeating former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and ended the tournament by defeating the ROH World Television Champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll to capture his first Ring of Honor championship!

In the ensuing weeks and months, KUSHIDA proved those victories were no flukes, winning five win or go-home matches en route to his second Best of Super Juniors Tournament win in three years, his fifth IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, and a resounding victory in a rematch against the former champion Scurll at Best in the World!

KUSHIDA defends his championship against the talented young competitor from New Zealand Jay White on an upcoming episode of ROH TV. White may be a slight underdog but is coming off a huge G1 Special in USA and has momentum on his side. The winner will face one of America’s favorite bachelors, Kenny King!

King has gained notoriety from his appearance on TV’s The Bachelorette and with that, the veteran star has had a career resurgence. King defeated the most ROH stars out of anyone in the Gauntlet for the Gold, bolstering his credentials heading into a Four Corner Survival Match to earn a TV Title shot. With the Rebellion disbanding, King has wasted no time picking a direction during a career-crossroads and is seeing his gamble on himself pay massive dividends. King defeated Mark Briscoe, Beer City Bruiser, and Chris Sabin on ROH TV and earned a ROH World Television Title shot!

Should KUSHIDA retain, it would be a first-time match up, pitting one of the fastest, crispest, most-technically sound stars in the world against a strong, explosive competitor just beginning to reach the peak of his career. If White captures the ROH World Television Championship on ROH TV, King will be looking to not only capture the ROH World TV title but also to earn a measure of revenge from White’s victory at 15th Anniversary! 

Kenny King will get his shot at singles gold in Concord – will it be against KUSHIDA or White? And will King leave North Carolina the new TV Champion? Join us to find out!

There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of ROH LIVE! The Best Wrestling on the Planet has become one of the hottest tickets in town – don’t miss your opportunity to see ALL of the stars of ROH, LIVE!
