Brody King vs. Jay Lethal announced for ROH Best in the World


A Violence Unlimited vs. The Foundation matchup is the first match to be confirmed for Ring of Honor's next pay-per-view.

On the latest episode of ROH Week By Week, it was announced that Brody King vs. Jay Lethal will take place at Best in the World 2021. The PPV is being held at the Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore, Maryland on Sunday, July 11. It will be the first ROH event with fans in attendance since February 2020.

King is part of Violence Unlimited with Tony Deppen, Homicide, and Chris Dickinson, while Lethal is part of The Foundation with Jonathan Gresham, Tracy Williams, and Rhett Titus. The two factions faced off in an eight-man tag match on the most recent episode of ROH TV. It ended with King pinning Lethal after hitting a Gonzo Bomb.

Violence Unlimited debuted as a faction at the end of ROH's 19th Anniversary PPV this March. After Rush retained the ROH World Championship against Lethal in the main event, Rush and La Faccion Ingobernable beat down Lethal and The Foundation. Violence Unlimited then appeared and stood tall over La Faccion Ingobernable. King extended his hand to Lethal, but he then dropped Lethal with a lariat. Homicide laid out Lethal with a Cop Killa to close the show.

This will be the first time King and Lethal have faced each other in a singles match.
