Dalton Castle Teams With Volador Jr To Take On Jay Lethal and Ultimo Guerrero

On Saturday, March 3 Ring of Honor returns for another sold out show in NYC that HonorClub members will also enjoy LIVE! THE EXPERIENCE at Manhattan Mayhem will feature the two competitors in the main event of the ROH World Championship match of 16th Anniversary squaring off against one another in tag team action!

And they have brought some international stars from CMLL making their New York City debuts!

ROH WORLD CHAMPION DALTON CASTLE & VOLADOR JR. vs. JAY LETHAL & ULTIMO GUERRERO

Dalton Castle rose to the top of the mountain, the top of the professional wrestling world at the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom in the main event of Final Battle 2017 when he defeated Cody to capture the Ring of Honor World Championship! With contenders lining up all across the globe, Castle has signed to defend the ROH World Championship against the man known as “The Franchise”, Jay Lethal at 16th Anniversary in Las Vegas should he still be champion!

With a defense on the books against Beretta at Honor Rising in Japan, should Castle retain the title, two of the biggest stars in professional wrestling will face one another with the championship on the line in Las Vegas, but before then, the two will have an opportunity to feel each other out in New York when they are on opposite ends of the ring in any type of match for the first time since Undisputed Legacy 2017, over one year ago!

The Ring of Honor Board of Directors were looking to make Manhattan Mayhem one of the biggest events of the year and were not afraid to pull out any stops! In addition to adding THE EXPERIENCE to this annual event, ROH will once again partner with CMLL to join two of ROH’s biggest stars with two of CMLL’s biggest stars! The World Champion Castle teams with Volador Jr. against Lethal and the legendary Guerrero!

Volador Jr. made his ROH debut at last year’s Supercard of Honor in Lakeland and impressed crowds immediately! Shortly following last year’s Supercard, Volador Jr. captured the CMLL Universal Championship via a prestigious 16-man tournament whose winning lineage includes Jushin Thunder Liger, Hiroshi Tanahashi, and the man standing opposite of Volador Jr., and with Lethal, Ultimo Guerrero! Guerrero is a certified legend, matching Volador Jr.’s impressive championship history and then some! Like Volador Jr., Guerrero’s championship wins are voluminous but Guerrero’s history also includes a win of the CMLL World Heavyweight Championship!

Volador Jr. and Guerrero have plenty of history between the two of them, including tag, six-man, and eight-man matches taking place between the two at FantasticaMania 2017 and 2018 tours in Japan, elevating bad blood between two stars whose paths have crossed many times in recent history! Will the pressure of being in the Big Apple for the first time shake either man’s psyche?

Can Jay Lethal fire a preemptive strike less than a week before his shot to become just the fourth two-time ROH World Champion? Can Dalton Castle gain an advantage of his own should he be the champion for 16th Anniversary? And what would the implications be of a Guerrero pin on Castle or a Volador Jr. pin on Lethal?

On Saturday, March 3, Ring of Honor returns to the Manhattan Center’s Hammerstein Ballroom for one of ROH’s signature events, Manhattan Mayhem! The Best Fans on the Planet SOLD OUT Manhattan Mayhem months in advance but you can watch this seminal event LIVE as it streams for HonorClub! And YOU get to pick stipulations as part of THE EXPERIENCE!

Manhattan Mayhem has gained a reputation as an event full of surprises, with last year being no different! The Hardys shocked the world when they emerged from the darkness and defeated the Young Bucks for the ROH World Tag Team Championships! And LATER in the night, Bully Ray made his ROH debut when he saved the Briscoes from a Bullet Club beat down!

This year, ROH will be pulling out all of the stops once again! Be sure to join us as we present THE EXPERIENCE at Manhattan Mayhem for HonorClub for all the action!
