Huge Matches Announced For ROH Death Before Dishonor

Three title matches have been announced for ROH Death Before Dishonor.

On July 23, 2022, Ring of Honor will present their second pay-per-view of the Tony Khan era from Lowell, Massachusetts, in what will be the nineteenth event of the same name.

During last night’s episode of AEW Dynamite, it was revealed that the ROH Pure Championship will be on the line as two AEW hot prospects battle it out in singles action, with Wheeler Yuta set to defend against Daniel Garcia.

Yuta has been the Pure Champion since Supercard of Honor in April, where he ended Josh Woods’ 201 day reign. This will be his third defence of his title since then.

A match for the ROH Television Championship was also announced, with champion Samoa Joe putting his belt on the line against the person with the longest reign in the title’s history, Jay Lethal.

The two men’s rivalry would begin when Joe made his ROH return at Supercard of Honor earlier this year, with them continuing their feud on AEW television since then. Joe would win the title on an April episode of AEW Dynamite, where he beat Minoru Suzuki, with him making just one defence since.

Later on Dynamite last night, ROH Tag Team Champions FTR would cut a backstage promo where they addressed their position on the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view, with them calling their match at April’s Supercard of Honor event against The Briscoes the toughest match they’ve ever had. At that show, FTR would defeat the brothers to win their ROH tag titles.

FTR would surprisingly call for a rematch, with FTR vs The Briscoes II now set for later this month.

The reason we say ‘surprising’ is because it was believed that Mark and Jay had no future in Ring of Honor, with WarnerMedia said to have wanted nothing to do with them. This is due to homophobic remarks made by Jay Briscoe in 2013.

It’s known that AEW and ROH President Tony Khan has been working with WarnerMedia on bringing back Ring of Honor pay-per-views, and it appears there may have been a change in heart.

The Briscoes have most recently been working with Impact Wrestling, although they dropped their Impact Tag titles to The Good Brothers at Slammiversary last month, with them perhaps now back in Ring of Honor moving forward.
