In a battle of brothers and faction teammates, Rush vs. Dragon Lee has been added to Saturday's ROH Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view.

According to Cagematch, this will be their first ever singles match against each other. No backstory or storyline was given for why the La Faccion Ingobernable teammates would wrestle. 

This will be Lee's first ROH match since last December's Final Battle while this is Rush's first ROH bout since a weekly ROH TV episode last September. 

Rush is a former two-time ROH World Champion while Lee has held both the Tag Team and TV titles.

Three matches were announced for the Zero Hour pre-show as well.

Tully Blanchard's faction will have a presence outside ROH Champion Jonathan Gresham as his Gates of Agony (Kaun & Toa Liona) & Brian Cage will battle ROH regulars Tony Deppen, Alex Zayne & Blake Christian in trios action.

In one match, The Trustbusters (Ari Daivari & Slim J) will take on the Shinobi Shadow Squad (Eli Isom & Cheeseburger). Daivari and Slim J debuted at last Saturday's Dark TV tapings, but the introduction of their team has yet to air. It's possible Parker Boudreaux (also introduced as part of the team last Saturday) also appears.

As hinted during Tony Khan's Thursday media call, ROH stalwart Colt Cabana will be in action against Anthony Henry (with JD Drake).

  • ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham defends against Claudio Castagnoli
  • ROH Women's Champion Mercedes Martinez defends against Serena Deeb
