Tony Khan has a lot of things going on. Now only is he running AEW, but he also has to keep ROH going as well. With another ROH pay-per-view coming very soon, he needed to book a main event match.
The events in the AEW Dynamite Blood and Guts match have had significant repercussions, leading to an exciting main event for ROH Death Before Dishonor on Friday, July 21st, 2023. Of course, this also called for booking a match at the last minute.
Amidst the chaos of the match, a heated confrontation unfolded between Pac and Claudio Castagnoli, resulting in Pac deciding to part ways with the Blackpool Combat Club.
This dramatic turn of events was announced by Tony Khan on Twitter, unveiling the main event for ROH Death Before Dishonor in Trenton, New Jersey. The match will feature Castagnoli and Pac battling for the prestigious ROH World Championship.
Dave Meltzer has further disclosed the intriguing backstory behind how this marquee matchup came to fruition during his segment on Wrestling Observer Radio. Wrestling enthusiasts can look forward to a high-stakes encounter between these talented competitors in what promises to be a memorable night of wrestling action.
“That’s very short notice, but Tony Khan went through the whole thing. The original opponent was Eddie Kingston, and then it was Mark Briscoe, and then this is how it ended up because Mark Briscoe was hurting way worse than he had let on and finally had to admit he was hurting really bad and needed time off.
“Eddie Kingston asked to go to G1 and Tony said that he didn’t want to get in his way and New Japan wanted him in G1. But Eddie Kingston was the original opponent for this show.”
ROH fans seem to be happy with the fact that Tony Khan is carrying on with the company. That being said, he could certainly give the company a bit more attention.
Only time will tell how ROH Death Before Dishonor pans out. If anything, fans will have a big main event match, even if they didn’t have much time to anticipate it.
