Jay Lethal challenges Samoa Joe for ROH Death Before Dishonor


Jay Lethal formally challenged Samoa Joe to an ROH Television Championship match at next month’s Death Before Dishonor.

On tonight’s Rampage, Lethal cut a promo saying he demanded that Samoa Joe sign a contract for a title match at Death Before Dishonor, noting that he has not been on AEW television in recent weeks. The promo ended with Satnam Singh telling Joe “Jay’s gonna kill you.”

Lethal and Joe have been feuding ever since the finale of Supercard of Honor in April, where Joe made his return to ROH by aiding Jonathan Gresham from an attack by Lethal and Sonjay Dutt. In the weeks since Supercard of Honor, Lethal and Dutt have introduced former basketball player Satnam Singh to their group.

At the Forbidden Door post-show scrum on Sunday, Tony Khan confirmed that Death Before Dishonor would take place on July 23 in Lowell, Massachusetts. It would be the second ROH show held since Khan bought the promotion in March.
