Adam Brooks has an opponent for his official Ring of Honor debut.
ROH announced today that Brooks will face fellow Australian wrestling standout and new ROH signee Slex at their 18th Anniversary pay-per-view. The event is taking place at Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, March 13.
Brooks signing with ROH was officially confirmed earlier this month. He wrestled for the promotion once before at a show in the United Kingdom in 2018.
ROH wrote about Brooks vs. Slex:
When Adam Brooks steps into an ROH ring for the first time on U.S. soil, he’ll see a familiar face standing across from him.
Brooks will take on fellow Australian star Slex in his debut at ROH 18th Anniversary in Las Vegas on March 13. Brooks and Slex have been rivals in Australia for nearly seven years.
They traded the Melbourne City Wrestling Intercommonwealth Title back and forth in 2018. This past November, Brooks won the MCW World Heavyweight Title from Slex in a three-way elimination match.
Brooks undoubtedly wants to make a strong first impression on ROH fans, and now he has the opportunity to do so at the expense of his longtime adversary.
Slex also has plenty of incentive. After coming up just short in an exciting match against Flip Gordon at Free Enterprise on Feb. 9 in his ROH debut, 'The Business' is eager to start compiling victories.
Dragon Lee defending the ROH Television title against Bandido has also been confirmed for the 18th Anniversary PPV, along with Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham defending their ROH Tag Team titles against Marty Scurll & Flip Gordon.
In a match with Anniversary PPV implications, PCO is defending his ROH World Championship against Rush and Mark Haskins in a triple threat match at Gateway to Honor on February 29. The wrestler who doesn't lose the fall in that match will challenge for the ROH World title at 18th Anniversary
Sam's Town Live is also hosting ROH Past vs. Present on Saturday, March 14.
