Austin Aries vs. Kenny King official for ROH Best in the World


A day after announcing that he would be wrestling on the show, Ring of Honor has confirmed Austin Aries' opponent for Best in the World.

Aries vs. Kenny King has been added to the lineup for the June 29 pay-per-view in Baltimore, Maryland. The match stems from an angle that took place following Aries' last appearance for ROH.

In May, King tried to help Aries in his match against then-Television Champion Silas Young. King hit Young with a belt shot when Young tried to use it as a weapon, Aries got the pin and appeared to win the title, but the decision was changed to a disqualification due to King's interference. Aries then gave King a low blow and a brainbuster after the match.

Here's the updated card for Best in the World:

  • ROH World Champion Dalton Castle defending against Cody Rhodes and Marty Scurll in a triple threat match
  • ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes defending against The Young Bucks
  • ROH Television Champion Punishment Martinez defending against Hangman Page in a street fight
  • ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O'Ryan & Vinny Marseglia) defending against SANADA, EVIL & BUSHI
  • Jay Lethal vs. KUSHIDA
  • Austin Aries vs. Kenny King
  • Bully Ray vs. Flip Gordon
  • Sumie Sakai, Mayu Iwatani, Tenille Dashwood & Jenny Rose vs. Kelly Klein, Hazuki, Kagetsu & Hana Kimura
