Lethal To Defend ROH Title Against Ospreay At Death Before Dishonor

Jay Lethal is among the most decorated champions Ring of Honor has ever seen. Nearly three months into his second reign as Ring of Honor World Champion, Lethal has crossed 500 days across both of his reigns.
In his second reign, Lethal has already had historic defenses against Jonathan Gresham, Flip Gordon, and Mark Haskins, defending the championship on both sides of the Atlantic. Already the longest-reigning ROH World Television Champion of all-time, Lethal sits less than 40 days behind Nigel McGuinness for second-most days all-time as ROH World Champion and under 140 days to catch Samoa Joe for most days all-time.

With over 30 defenses, Lethal has the potential to break the record of most defenses of all-time, as well. But he is not interested coasting into history and has issued an open challenge for the best of the best to face him in Las Vegas at Death Before Dishonor! And a man who won the Ring of Honor World Television Championship in his first ROH match will challenge Lethal for the Championship in his first opportunity at the ROH World Championship!

MAIN EVENT
RING OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
RING OF HONOR WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL vs. WILL OSPREAY

Will Ospreay made history when he successfully challenged and defeated Bobby Fish for the Ring of Honor World Television Championship in his very first ROH match. The victory capped of a banner year when he became both the youngest-ever and the only British winner ever of the Best of Super Juniors Tournament. Since then, Ospreay has been categorically one of the biggest stars in professional wrestling whether it is Ring of Honor, New Japan Pro-Wrestling, in his native UK, Australia, and in other countries!

Ospreay answered Lethal’s open challenge in Philadelphia, in a move that surprised many. But for Lethal, the challenge was not surprising at all. Ospreay’s last match in Ring of Honor was in December 2017 in a losing effort against Jay Lethal. Lethal made a quest of avenging all previous losses before he would challenge again for the ROH World Championship. The parallels to Lethal’s quest are striking and are not lost on either man in this World Championship clash!
Ospreay possesses an array of aerial maneuvers that are difficult for anyone to counter or even anticipate. The variety of his offense has put him in a position to surprise even the most accomplished and well-studied athletes. And the former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion has his sights set on the biggest prize in ROH!
