Here’s a preview of this weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling:”
ROH World Tag Team Title Match: Champions Chris Dickinson & Homicide of Violence Unlimited vs. Dragon Lee & Kenny King of La Facción Ingobernable
When Lee was unable to defend the ROH World Television Title and ROH World Tag Team Title in March because he was recovering from an injury, both titles were defended unsuccessfully on his behalf.
Lee got one of the championships back when he defeated Tony Deppen for the ROH World Television Title at Best in the World in July. Now he’s coming for the other one with King.
While Lee is looking to become a double champion for the second time, King is seeking his third reign as a co-holder of the tag team title.
This is the first title defense for Dickinson and Homicide, who captured the title from The Foundation (Rhett Titus and Jonathan Gresham) at Best in the World.
This match between members of Violence Unlimited and La Faccion Ingobernable could shift the balance of power in the faction warfare that has been raging in ROH.
A win by Lee and King would give LFI two titles and leave VU with none. It could end up being a huge weekend for LFI, as Lee, King and Bestia del Ring challenge Shane Taylor Promotions (Taylor and Soldiers of Savagery’s Moses and Kaun) for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sunday.
ROH World Champion Bandido & Rey Horus vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe
Since resolving their differences in the Fight on the Farm two months ago, the Briscoes have embarked on a quest to win their 12th ROH World Tag Team Title.
Dem Boys are 2-0 thus far and currently No. 4 in the rankings, but this will be their toughest test to date.
Bandido solidified his status as one of the best wrestlers in the sport by defeating RUSH for the ROH World Championship at Best in the World. He and Horus have had success as a tag team -- including a win over Brody King and Dickinson last month -- and are former co-holders of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title.
Pure Rules Match: Josh Woods vs. Will Ferrara
This is Woods’ last match before he faces ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham for the title at Death Before Dishonor. Woods is at the top of his game, and Ferrara only wrestles sporadically these days, but “The Technical Beast” should not view this as merely a tune-up match.
Ferrara decided to be a coach at the ROJ Dojo and reduce his schedule as an active wrestler, but he keeps himself in great shape, is barely 30 and is an outstanding wrestling technician. A victory over Woods would prove to everyone that he’s still a threat, not a stepping stone.
That said, defeating Woods in a Pure Rules match is a tall task for anyone. Just ask former ROH World Champions Jay Lethal and Dalton Castle, who have both lost to Woods.
