Two of Ring of Honor’s top new signees will be facing off at the promotion’s 17th Anniversary pay-per-view.
ROH has announced that Rush will face Bandido at the PPV, which is taking place at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas, Nevada on Friday, March 15. The match was set up in a video where Bandido issued the challenge and Rush accepted it.
After signing with ROH, Bandido debuted for the promotion at last month’s television tapings. He’s part of the LifeBlood stable with Juice Robinson, Tenille Dashwood, David Finlay, Mark Haskins, and Tracy Williams.
Rush made his ROH debut at December’s TV tapings. It was then announced in January that he had signed with ROH.
Jay Lethal will defend his ROH World Championship against Matt Taven in the main event of the 17th Anniversary PPV. Villain Enterprises (PCO & Brody King) are also set to challenge for The Briscoes’ Tag Team titles at the show.
