Tracy Williams off ROH Best in the World, replaced by Jay Lethal


Tracy Williams is off tonight’s ROH Best in the World pay-per-view event.

It was announced during the Best in the World pre-show that Williams would be off of his scheduled match, where he was to team with Rhett Titus to defend the ROH World Tag Team titles against Violence Unlimited (Chris Dickinson and Homicide) in a Fight Without Honor match. Jay Lethal, who is already scheduled to fight Brody King on the show, will pull double duty and team with Titus instead.

Williams has not wrestled since being involved in a hit and run car accident back in June. He wrote at the time: 

Firstly, I’ll be okay. I got full on hit by a car yesterday x-ing the street. Guy blew a red going ~25mph. I flew for what felt like a full second, landed high on my back. Just so unbelievably lucky & grateful that my dog who was walking with me was somehow not hit & she’s okay. I’d take the hit for her any day & it could’ve been so much worse. There are a lot of things about it that were lucky in that weird way. Like, it’s lucky this asshole idiot driver hit a 32 y/o pro wrestler & not the old couple that was crossing from the other side in front of me.

ROH Best in the World will be the first show back with fans for the company since February of 2020. The show is headlined by an ROH World title match between champion Rush and Bandido.
