Rush vs. Bandido ROH World title match set for Best in the World


The following contains spoilers for this weekend's ROH TV.

Ring of Honor World Champion Rush will defend the title against Bandido in the main event of the Best in the World pay-per-view on July 11th.

Bandido earned the shot by winning the Survival of the Fittest elimination tournament six-way final this weekend on ROH TV. The match also involved Demonic Flamita, Eli Isom, Brian Johnson, Chris Dickinson, and Rhett Titus.

Rush (seen above) won the title in February 2020 in a three-way at Gateway of Honor and has title defenses against Brody King, Shane Taylor and Jay Lethal to his credit. This will be his first title match since March.

The two have clashed before in ROH with Rush picking up a win at the March 2019 17th Anniversary PPV.

Best in the World will be held in Baltimore, Maryland, and will be their first show with fans since February 2020.
