Here’s a preview of this weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling:
Brody King vs. Kenny King vs. Jay Lethal vs. Shane Taylor
Members of Violence Unlimited (Brody King), La Facción Ingobernable (Kenny King), The Foundation (Lethal) and Shane Taylor Promotions (Taylor) will collide in the latest battle between ROH’s warring factions.
There is no love lost between any of these world class competitors, although Brody King, Lethal and Taylor do have mutual respect for one another. The outlier is Kenny King, who has no respect for anyone but his fellow LFI members.
The most heated grudge in this match is between Kenny King and Taylor.
The former friends, who were once stablemates in the now-defunct Rebellion several years ago, became bitter enemies earlier this year when King smashed Taylor over the head with a steel chair to help then-ROH World Champion RUSH of LFI defeat Taylor.
Taylor returned the favor at Death Before Dishonor a couple weeks ago when he hit King with a chair as STP successfully defended the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title against LFI.
Brody King and Lethal both have plenty of motivation to win this bout. King is looking to get back in the win column after coming up short in a four-way elimination match for the ROH World Title at Death Before Dishonor, and Lethal is as committed as ever to “purifying” ROH.
This result of this match also figures to have implications for the ROH World Title rankings.
Pure Rules Match: PJ Black vs. Brian Johnson
Johnson entered the Pure division last week and made an immediate impact by winning a Pure gauntlet. In typical fashion, Johnson, the sixth and final entrant in the match, pinned LSG with his feet on the ropes for illegal leverage after punching him in the face.
“The Mecca” is on a mission to rule the Pure division, but Black -- Johnson’s mentor -- said Johnson has to defeat him in a Pure Rules Match to prove he’s ready. Johnson accepted the challenge.
“You win, you get the Black belt,” Black told him. “I win, you shake my hand.”
Will Johnson “graduate” with honors from his apprenticeship with Black? Or will the serene veteran teach his hostile student one final lesson?
“How do I watch ROH TV?”@QuinnMcKay has you covered!
