Ring Of Honor reveals when Bandido will make his debut!
As we’ve noted, Ring Of Honor has been in a bit of a scramble mode recently with the loss of talents such as Cody Rhodes, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page, as it signs new faces to come in and lead the promotion going into the New Year.
We’ve already seen the arrivals of Brody King and PCO, plus heard the likes of Mark Haskins are on the way (read more on that here), but arguably the biggest signing has been that of Bandido (find that story here). Today, Ring Of Honor has revealed that the masked man will officially arrive next month at their Saturday Night At Center Stage and Honor Reigns Supreme events:
BANDIDO TO DEBUT WITH ROH IN ATLANTA AND CONCORD
Bandido, one of pro wrestling’s hottest free agents, has signed with Ring of Honor and will make his highly anticipated debut with The Best Wrestling on the Planet in January, ROH officials have announced.
The charismatic high-flyer will be in Atlanta on Jan 12 for an international television taping, and then in Concord, N.C., on Jan. 13 for Honor Reigns Supreme, which will stream live worldwide for HonorClub, in addition to all announced ROH events in the U.S.
A fourth-generation wrestler, Bandido has made a name for himself around the globe. In addition to wrestling in his native Mexico, the 23-year-old luchador has competed extensively in Japan as well as the UK, Australia and on U.S. independents, most notably Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.
In September, Bandido competed in PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles and advanced to the finals, where he was defeated by current ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb. Earlier that month, he teamed with fellow masked stars Rey Mysterio and Fenix against The Golden Elite (The Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi) in the main event of the All In pay-per-view.
Bandido undoubtedly will be looking to show ROH fans in Atlanta and Concord that he is every bit as good as advertised. He will have a target on his back, however, as there will be no shortage of worthy competitors who would love nothing more than to spoil the heralded star’s ROH debut.
Don’t miss your opportunity to see Bandido live and all the fast-paced, in-you-face action that only ROH can deliver!
