Shane Taylor to face Kenny King at ROH Final Battle


The first match is official for this December's Final Battle pay-per-view, the final ROH show before the promotion goes on hiatus.

Shane Taylor vs. Kenny King will take place at Final Battle on Saturday, December 11. The PPV is being held at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore, Maryland.

Taylor vs. King is a grudge match between former friends. Taylor lost an ROH World Championship match against then-champion Rush this February after King hit him with a steel chair. King acted like he was going to stop Rush from hitting Taylor with a chair, but King then hit Taylor with the chair himself.

Taylor confronted King and went face-to-face with him on this Tuesday's edition of ROH Week By Week.

Shane Taylor Promotions (Taylor, Moses & Kaun) are the current ROH Six-Man Tag Team Champions, while La Faccion Ingobernable's King & Dragon Lee are the ROH Tag Team Champions.

ROH Women's World Champion Rok-C is set to defend her title at Final Battle. Leading into the PPV, a number one contender's match to decide her challenger will take place on ROH TV. Willow Nightingale has already advanced to the number one contender's match. A triple threat match between Trish Adora, Allysin Kay, and Mandy Leon will determine Willow's opponent.

ROH announced last month that it is going on hiatus after Final Battle. They'll be taking the first quarter of 2022 to "work internally to reimagine ROH." ROH talent won't have their contracts renewed and are able to work wherever they want immediately.
