ROH issued the following:
Fresh off the heels of the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View, Ring of Honor returns to the CITY OF BROTHERLY LOVE on Saturday, March 12th at the HISTORIC 2300 ARENA for a night of the BEST WRESTLING ON THE PLANET!
Long-time ROH fans know that in 2002, The Best Wrestling on the Planet hosted its inaugural show in Philadelphia. With deep Philly roots, ROH’s return to Philadelphia as part of the CONQUEST TOUR is guaranteed to be a hot ticket!
ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has signed the first bout for March 12 and it is for the ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP!
ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL vs #REBORN MATT SYDAL
For a world-class athlete like Matt Sydal, very few victories can be classified as upsets. His victory over former ROH World Champion Adam Cole in Nashville was marked as upset by some, but keen observers know that this signature win was the culmination of his rebirth in Ring of Honor! The victory over the former champion who remains a top contender has cemented Sydal’s status as the number one contender to the ROH World Championship!
Twelve years following his debut in Ring of Honor, Sydal seeks to complete his metamorphosis in ROH and capture the ROH World Championship in the City of Brotherly Love! The only problem? The Greatest First Generation Wrestler of All-Time is standing in his way!
Jay Lethal has held a ROH World singles championship uninterrupted for nearly two years! Since forming an alliance with Truth Martini, Lethal has defeated every challenger that he has signed to compete against, including Cole and Kyle O’Reilly at the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View! With huge wins in Japan and England in 2016, Lethal has firmly established himself as the world’s best.
Lethal and his challenger Sydal are no strangers to one another with Sydal nearly dethroning Lethal for the ROH World Television Championship at Final Battle 2014! Lethal is perhaps the greatest streak in Ring of Honor history, closing in on one year with the ROH World Title – will Sydal’s aerial assaults and stick-and-move attacks be enough to help him capture his first ROH singles championship? Will Lethal’s exhausting schedule of defenses catch up to him in the birthplace of Ring of Honor? Or will the House of Truth’s trump card prove that the House Always Wins? Join us in Philadelphia to find out!
Don’t miss out on this rare opportunity to see this HUGE ROH World Championship match!
