Mark Haskins made a strong impression when he competed on Ring of Honor shows in the UK this year and last. So strong, in fact, that ROH officials have signed the talented wrestler from Oxford, England to an exclusive contract.
Haskins, who announced his signing on social media early this morning, will make his initial U.S. appearances for ROH next month, first in Atlanta on Jan 12 for an international television taping, and then in Concord, N.C., on Jan. 13 for Honor Reigns Supreme, which will stream live worldwide for HonorClub.
A tough-as-nails fighter and one of the UK’s top stars, Haskins won the inaugural ROH International Cup this past August on the Honor Re-United UK Tour by defeating Jonathan Gresham in the first round, Flip Gordon in the semifinals and “Hangman” Adam Page in the final.
By virtue of winning the tournament, Haskins received a title match against ROH World Champion Jay Lethal on the final night of the tour in London. Haskins pushed the champion to the limit in a match regarded as one of the best in ROH in 2018.
Haskins’ first match for ROH was a victory over Silas Young during the War of the Worlds UK Tour in 2017.
Haskins, who has 12 years of experience despite being just 30, has won numerous championships and holds victories over some of the biggest names in the sport, including Marty Scurll, Dalton Castle, Will Ospreay, Zack Sabre Jr., Drew Galloway, Prince Devitt, Ricochet, Pac, Austin Aries, Christopher Daniels, Roderick Strong, Kyle O’Reilly and El Generico.
Now a full-fledged member of the ROH roster, Haskins undoubtedly will be looking to hit the ground running in Atlanta and Concord. Join us LIVE for the fast-paced, in-you-face action that only ROH can deliver!
