ROH holding tournament to decide Final Battle title challenger


ROH is holding a number one contender's tournament to decide their World title challenger for Final Battle 2019.

It was announced today that the first-round matches for the tournament will take place at ROH's Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Friday, September 27 and their post-Death Before Dishonor television tapings on Saturday, September 28. Both of those shows are being held at Sam's Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada.

There will be eight wrestlers in the single-elimination tournament. ROH wrote that the participants for it will be revealed later this week, along with when the semifinals and finals will be taking place.

Matt Taven is the current ROH World Champion. Jeff Cobb will get a future shot at Taven's title after defeating Taven, Jay Lethal, and Kenny King in a Defy or Deny elimination match at Honor for All last night.

Rush has also been indicated as an upcoming challenger for the ROH World Championship. He confronted Taven after Taven's title defense against Alex Shelley at Summer Supercard earlier this month.

The UMBC Event Center in Baltimore, Maryland is hosting Final Battle on Friday, December 13.
