Rush challenging for ROH World title at Death Before Dishonor


ROH has confirmed when Rush is getting his shot at their World Championship.

Rush will challenge for the ROH World title in the main event of the promotion's Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view at Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, September 27. Matt Taven currently holds the ROH World Championship but has one more title defense prior to Death Before Dishonor.

Volador Jr. will challenge for Taven's title at night two of ROH's Global Wars Espectacular tour with CMLL. That show is taking place in Villa Park, Illinois this Saturday. Rush & Jeff Cobb will then team against Taven & Vinny Marseglia at Global Wars Espectacular night three in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on Sunday.

Taven's contract with ROH is set to expire later this month.

ROH is holding a number one contender's tournament that will begin at Death Before Dishonor and their post-Death Before Dishonor television tapings. The winner of the tournament will challenge for the ROH World title at Final Battle in December.

The semifinals and finals of the number one contender's tournament are set for Glory By Honor in New Orleans on Saturday, October 12. Dalton Castle, Jay Lethal, Kenny King, Marty Scurll, Bandido, Colt Cabana, Mark Haskins, and PCO will be the eight wrestlers in the tournament.
