Jonathan Gresham is the reigning Ring of Honor World Champion. Gresham is set to take on Bandido, who never lost the title, at Friday’s Supercard of Honor pay-per-view. The show will be the first ROH event under the ownership of AEW head Tony Khan.
Jonathan was also scheduled to wrestle in a six-man tag team match at the WrestleCon SuperShow in Dallas. Gresham has officially been pulled from that match. Josh Alexander will replace the ROH champ in the bout.
The SuperShow is scheduled for Thursday evening. There was no word given on the reason Jonathan Gresham was pulled. WrestleCon announced the change in a Sunday evening tweet.
“Small change to our lineup on the six man, welcome @Walking_Weapon to the fray. Will this match win the $5k best bout? If you can’t join us in Dallas, order on @FiteTV and watch it live.”
No reason was given for Jonathan Gresham being removed from the show. Speculation will surely pop up. It is possible that Khan himself pulled Gresham from the show, but until someone involved says something, any reason given is just a guess.
Bandido was the reigning world champion for ROH going into the Final Battle PPV. A positive COVID test kept him from competing. Gresham defeated Jay Lethal to become the interim champion. Time will likely tell why Jonathan Gresham was pulled from the WrestleCon event. Fans can still watch him perform at Friday’s ROH show in the main event.
