ROH has revealed the two former WWE wrestlers who will be facing off at Death Before Dishonor.
On today's episode of ROH Week By Week, it was announced that Jake Atlas vs. Taylor Rust will be taking place at Death Before Dishonor this Sunday (September 12). ROH had been hyping that two top free agents who were recently released by another organization would be facing each other at the pay-per-view.
Atlas and Rust (formerly known as Tyler Rust in WWE) were both released by WWE during August's NXT roster cuts. Rust was part of the Diamond Mine stable in NXT prior to being released.
Atlas has wrestled for ROH once previously, while Rust has wrestled for the promotion twice.
Atlas will be making his NJPW debut at October's New Japan Strong tapings.
ROH has also announced 10 of the 15 participants who will be taking part in the Honor Rumble on Death Before Dishonor Hour One. The battle royal will feature Beer City Bruiser, PJ Black, Dak Draper, Rey Horus, Brian Johnson, Joe Keys, Brian Milonas, Sledge, and Silas Young.
The winner of the Honor Rumble will get a future shot at the ROH World Championship.
