Josh Woods vs. Wheeler Yuta Pure title match set for ROH Supercard of Honor

A Ring of Honor Pure title match has been added to next Friday's PPV.

For the first time since last December, the Ring of Honor Pure Championship will be defended in an ROH ring as Josh Woods will defend the gold against Wheeler Yuta at next Friday's Supercard of Honor pay-per-view.

This will be the first time ever they have wrestled against each other.

Woods won the title from Jonathan Gresham at last September's Death Before Dishonor and has seven defenses of the gold with the last three coming on indie shows.

Before Tony Khan purchased ROH, the old leadership's plan was to focus on the World, Women's World and Tag Team titles after returning from their three-month shutdown, forgoing the Pure and Six-Man titles. At least with the Pure title, that appears to not be the case anymore.

Yuta is under an AEW deal but frequently works high-level indies as well as New Japan Strong. Woods has worked some AEW Dark tapings in Orlando, Florida, since the initial ROH shutdown.

Here's the current lineup for next Friday from Garland, Texas:

  • Jonathan Gresham vs. Bandido in a winner takes all match to determine the ROH World Heavyweight Champion
  • The Briscoe Brothers vs. FTR for the ROH Tag Team titles
  • Josh Woods vs. Wheeler Yuta for the ROH Pure title
  • Sw3rve the Realest vs. Alex Zayne
  • Joe Hendry, Ninja Mack in matches TBA
