The undefeated, unblemished, never-pinned-or-submitted RUSH, fresh off of surviving Champions vs. All-Stars with Jeff Cobb, brings his perfect record in singles competition to Chicago where he faces a man who helped him claim the hair of current ROH World Champion Matt Taven in the main event of CMLL’s seminal event, 85th Anniversary, Barbaro Cavernario!
In CMLL, RUSH leads the original chapter of Los Ingobernables while Babaro Cavernario is the fastest rising member of La Peste Negra, the Black Plague. But their associations within their respective groups has not prohibited them from teaming. The duo defeated current ROH World Champion Matt Taven and Volador Jr. in the main event of last year’s 85th Anniversary at Arena Mexico, costing both Taven and Volador Jr. their hair.
The team of RUSH and Cavernario functioned well enough in the match and have even co-existed in six-man matches. But a recent loss in six-man action saw them face each other four days later in CMLL one-on-one for the first time on June 18. Following RUSH’s two-out-of-three fall victory in their first encounter, the two have competed in a series of six-man matches.
In Chicago, the two face off for the first time in a ROH ring and for the first time in a one-fall bout. RUSH’s explosiveness benefits the reduction of three falls to one while Barbaro Cavernario’s unpredictable nature may also benefit him in a one-fall environment.
This main-event-level match is taking place for the first time in the United States and for the first time being contested in a one-fall environment! Will RUSH’s undefeated streak remain intact or will Barbaro Cavernario make a giant splash in ROH in the Windy City? Join us live in person or streaming for HonorClub to find out!
