After Violence Unlimited’s Chris Dickinson issued an open challenge to any Pure wrestlers past, present or future to face him, Homicide and Tony Deppen in a six-man tag match, one competitor from each era quickly stepped up.
Former Pure champion John Walters (past), LSG (present) and Lee Moriarty (future) have joined forces to take on VU at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 12 in Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena.
Part of VU’s mission since its formation earlier this year has been to prove that the Pure wrestlers are no match for violent competitors such as themselves. Making an example of Walters, LSG and Moriarty is easier said than done, however.
Walters held the Pure Title for 189 days back in 2004-2005, but he’s not a nostalgia act. He made his return to ROH last year in great shape and nearly defeated Pure star Tracy Williams.
LSG, who is relatively new to the Pure division, has quickly climbed the ranking and is currently the No. 2 contender to the Pure Title. Deppen knows firsthand how good LSG is because he was defeated by LSG in a traditional match in February.
Moriarty, one of the most in-demand wrestlers on the independent circuit, will be making his ROH debut. “The Apex of Combat” has received high praise from the likes of Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham and former ROH star Alex Shelley.
