Pure title match added to ROH Glory By Honor night one

Two stablemates will face off for the ROH Pure Championship at Glory By Honor night one.

ROH has announced that Jonathan Gresham will defend his Pure title against Rhett Titus at Glory By Honor night one. The show is taking place at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Friday, August 20.

Gresham and Titus are part of The Foundation with Jay Lethal and Tracy Williams.

Titus & Williams formerly held the ROH Tag Team titles together. With Williams injured, Gresham filled in for him at ROH's Best in the World pay-per-view earlier this month. Titus & Gresham lost the titles to Violence Unlimited's Homicide & Chris Dickinson in a Fight Without Honor.

The Tag Team title match was Gresham's second match of the night at Best in the World. He also retained his Pure Championship against Mike Bennett at the PPV.

Gresham became Pure Champion by winning a tournament for the title when it was reintroduced last year.

An eight-man tag match with Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Tony Deppen, Homicide & Dickinson) facing La Faccion Ingobernable (Rush, ROH Television Champion Dragon Lee, Kenny King & Bestia del Ring) has also been added to Glory By Honor night one.

Glory By Honor nights one and two are both being held at the 2300 Arena and will air live on HonorClub. Here are the updated lineups for both shows:
