The ROH World Championship will be defended at The Wrld on GCW.
In a video released by GCW tonight, it was confirmed that Blake Christian will challenge Jonathan Gresham for the ROH World Championship at GCW’s first event at the Hammerstein Ballroom on January 23rd. It’s the first match to be announced for the show.
The video had Christian saying that this was not about the ROH title, it’s about being accepted as one of the best in the world. And when he wins the championship from Gresham, everyone will have no choice but to accept him as among the best in the world.
Gresham won the championship at ROH’s Final Battle event on December 11. With the company taking a hiatus until at least April, Gresham has defended the championship in independent promotions under ROH Pure title rules. His first title defense was at GCW Blood on the Hills on December 17th, where he successfully retained against AJ Gray.
