Taven Squares Off With Gresham At Road To G1 Supercard In Houston

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – Houston on Jan. 25!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

ROH’s return to Houston for the first time in nine years features Night 2 of Tag Wars, a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

In addition to the Tag Wars matches, ROH officials have also signed several other outstanding match-ups. Just announced is a singles match between “The Octopus” Jonathan Gresham and the leader of The Kingdom, Matt Taven.

JONATHAN GRESHAM vs. MATT TAVEN

Taven has said and done a number of things over the years to get under the skin of ROH fans, but he may have outdone himself by carrying around a tailor-made ROH World Championship belt and obnoxiously proclaiming to be the real world champion.

It certainly hasn’t sat well with the legitimate ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, and Gresham -- a close friend of Lethal’s -- would like nothing more than to knock The Kingdom leader off his imaginary throne.

As one of the very best technical wrestlers in the world, Gresham has proved that he is capable of defeating anyone. Beating Taven will be no easy task, however, even for someone as good as Gresham.

As irritating as Taven may be, there’s no denying his vast skills inside the ring. He has won every title in ROH with the exception of the officially recognized ROH World Championship and has scored victories over some of the best wrestlers in the world, including former ROH World Champion Dalton Castle at Final Battle last month.

Will Gresham be able to his technical wrestling wizardry to humble the arrogant Taven? Or will Taven send a message to Lethal by defeating his friend? Join us LIVE in Houston to find out!

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas Jan. 24-26 will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more first-round match announcements.
