Show is called Honor Reigns Supreme for some godly reason. I hope this doesn't become a trend.
Show was obviously originally taking place in Atlanta, but is now taking place in Concord. Card is the same, just location is different.
Bullet Club vs. The Kingdom
So Cal Uncensored vs. Dalton Castle & The Boys
Best Friends vs. Young Bucks2017 was a banner year for Dalton Castle! At Best in the World 2017, Castle teamed with The Boys to capture his first ROH championship, the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles from the then-undefeated team of Bully Ray and the Briscoes. Castle then ended a months’ long quest for revenge against the then-World Champion Cody by defeating him for the Championship at Final Battle 2017!
But Castle enters 2018 with a major target on his back. Whether it is stars like the former champion Cody or Punishment Martinez, Jay Lethal, Matt Taven, Marty Scurll, Castle is a marked man. And the champion, whoever it may be, is definitely the target for SoCal Uncensored who are not afraid to go scorched earth with the time ticking on their contracts!
Will SoCal Uncensored pick up the win or do they have something more sinister in mind? And can Castle stave off SCU, leave North Carolina with his health in-tact, and put he and The Boys back on track to capture their second ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles? Join us to find out!
Jonathan Gresham vs. Jay LethalThe Young Bucks racked up championships upon championships in 2017, including their third ROH World Tag Team Titles at Supercard of Honor. And they were World Tag Team Champions when they agreed to team with Adam Page to take on Roppongi Vice and a mystery partner. Chuckie T. shocked the Bullet Club team, picking up a pinfall, impressing ROH management enough to get them a spot in a Triple Threat World Tag Team title match at Best in the World.
The two teams have been at war with one another, since, including doing battle in the main event in a six-man tag of Global Wars: Columbus and a six-man main event on ROH TV, but these two teams have never faced each other in a tag team, 2-on-2 match in ROH.
Two of the most popular teams in Ring of Honor bring their storied history with them to Concord and will square off at Honor Reigns Supreme and this match is surely to have championship implications. While this is not officially a number one contender’s match, one would have to believe that the winner would put themselves in line for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles! Will it be Best Friends or the Bucks who emerge victorious? Join us to find out!
Also Appearing:Jay Lethal’s accomplishments speak for themselves. For two years, Lethal held either one or both of the ROH World and ROH World Television Championships. His successes have earned him the label of “The Franchise”, a man who has become so synonymous with ROH that you cannot think of The Best Wrestling on the Planet without thinking of Lethal.
Lethal spent much of 2017 locked in a brutal feud with current ROH World Television Champion Silas Young. Following their bout at Death Before Dishonor, Lethal looked to get back on track and did so with wins against Frankie Kazarian, Hiromu Takahashi, Jay White, Marty Scurll, and Will Ospreay. Heading into 2018, Lethal was the first to challenge new ROH World Champion Dalton Castle face-to-face, looking to stake his claim to a shot at becoming ROH World Champion for the second time!
But in between Lethal and Castle is a man who is one of the most accomplished wrestlers in the world under the age of 30, Jonathan Gresham! Gresham has used technical precision and a decade of experience in 14 countries and four continents to outwrestle and outsmart almost everyone he has been in the ring with. And after wins against Josh Woods, TK O’Ryan, and Vinny Marseglia, Gresham, who vowed on Coleman’s Pulpit to bring back a more Pure wrestling style, is taking his shot in the city he was born and became a pro wrestler in against his biggest challenge to date!
A win for Lethal against one of the best, young wrestlers in the world would bolster his case for a ROH World Title match. For Gresham, a win against Lethal would elevate his own status in the ROH World and Television Championship pictures! Who will win this first-time bout? Join us in Atlanta to find out!
