An ROH World Championship challenger has been announced for G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden.
A promo from Marty Scurll aired at the end of the press conference/contract signing video for Jay Lethal and Matt Taven's World title match at this Friday's ROH 17th Anniversary pay-per-view. Scurll announced that he's cashing in his title shot to challenge the ROH World Champion at G1 Supercard on Saturday, April 6.
Scurll is owed a World title shot as a stipulation of winning ROH's Survival of the Fittest tournament in November 2018.
Lethal has been ROH World Champion since June. Taven has been claiming to be the "real" champion and carried around a fake World title belt, which Lethal destroyed in an angle during the build to their match at the Anniversary PPV.
Scurll vs. Kenny King is also set for the Anniversary show.
Here's the updated lineup for G1 Supercard:
- IWGP Heavyweight Champion Jay White defending against the winner of the New Japan Cup
- Marty Scurll challenging for the ROH World Championship
- IWGP Junior Heavyweight Champion Taiji Ishimori defending against Dragon Lee and Bandido in a triple threat match
- IWGP Tag Team Champions Tama Tonga & Tanga Loa vs. ROH Tag Team Champions The Briscoes with both sets of titles on the line (The Briscoes also have a title defense against PCO & Brody King at Friday's Anniversary PPV)
- Honor Rumble (pre-show)
