Semifinals set for ROH number one contender's tournament


The semifinals of ROH's number one contender's tournament are now set.

PCO vs. Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll vs. Jay Lethal are the two semifinal matches for the tournament. The semifinals and finals will both be held at Glory By Honor in New Orleans, Louisiana on Saturday, October 12.

Castle defeated Mark Haskins and Lethal defeated PJ Black in the remaining first-round matches at Saturday's post-Death Before Dishonor television tapings. Black was replacing Bandido, who ROH announced was unable to wrestle on Saturday due to a knee injury.

Scurll and PCO advanced by winning first-round matches at Death Before Dishonor. Scurll defeated Colt Cabana, while PCO defeated Kenny King in a no disqualification match.

The winner of the tournament will challenge for the ROH World Championship at Final Battle in Baltimore, Maryland on Friday, December 13. Rush is the current champion. He's scheduled to defend his title against Jeff Cobb at ROH's Honor United show in Bolton, England on Sunday, October 27.

Scurll's contract with ROH is set to expire this November.
