A rematch for the ROH Pure Championship is set for next Wednesday’s Dynamite as Wheeler Yuta will defend against Jericho Appreciation Society’s Daniel Garcia. 

The first squared off at July’s ROH Death Before Dishonor where Yuta retained the championship.

Garcia has been involved in a weeks-long storyline involving himself, Chris Jericho and Bryan Danielson, torn over whether he wants to be a sports entertainer in the Jericho Appreciation Society or a wrestler. After saying last week he couldn’t decide, he told Jericho on this week’s Dynamite that he wanted to remain with the group. 

Later, however, he took a chair from Jericho, who was about to attack Danielson in the ring, which allowed Danielson to recover and strike Jericho with a running knee. Garcia looked upset after Danielson laid Jericho out.

On Wednesday’s Dynamite, Yuta defeated Rush, Rey Fenix, and Dante Martin in a four-way match. Those four will join Claudio Castagnoli, Penta El Zero Miedo, Andrade El Idolo, and a mystery ‘joker’ challenger in the Casino Ladder Match at All Out this Sunday.

Next week’s Dynamite will take place in Buffalo, New York.
