[ROH News] First Wrestlers Signed for September iPPV ‘Death Before Dishonor X’
Yesterday Ring of Honor announced the first wrestlers signed on for Death Before Dishonor X, their next iPPV taking place in September. They are as follows:
– Current ROH World Champion Kevin Steen– Current ROH World Television Champion Adam Cole– Mark & Jay Briscoe– Roderick Strong with Truth Martini– Rhino with Truth Martini– “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin with Truth Martini– Jay Lethal– Steve Corino– “Zombie Princess” Jimmy Jacobs– Kyle O’Reilly
Death Before Dishonor X takes place on September 15th at the Frontier Fieldhouse in Chicago Ridge, Illinois. No matches have been signed as of yet, but expect ROH to get the ball rolling at their TV tapings next month.
Thoughts: I’m still new to the ROH product (at least in terms of consistently following it), but their last two iPPV’s (Border Wars and Best in the World) were two of the best I have seen from any company in quite some time so I already have Death Before Dishonor X on my radar. I’ll be interested to see where they go in terms of matchups; with his storyline with Davey Richards seemingly over, ROH Champ Kevin Steen needs a fresh challenger; I just have no idea who it’ll be. Either way, his faction with Corino and Jacobs is endlessly entertaining so I can’t wait to see what they cook up (I would like Jacobs to actually, you know, wrestle at some point though). Fantasy booking-wise, I hope they go with either Cole/O’Reilly for the TV Title or Richards/O’Reilly in a “Master Vs. Student” type of match. Elgin/Strong or Elgin/Rhino is also a possibility, as they’ve been teasing Elgin’s departure from the House of Truth for months now. Either he’ll depart before and set one of these matches up or he’ll finally defect at the iPPV. I’ll be keeping my eye on the build to Death Before Dishonor X and will keep you informed of any matches that get announced.
