Jay Lethal will defend his Ring Of Honor World Title in Houston!

Over the past 24 hours we’ve seen a number of updates for Friday night’s Ring Of Honor Road To G1 Supercard event in Houston with a 6-Man Tag, 8-Man Tag, Proving Ground Four Corner Survival and Matt Taven vs. Jonathan Gresham all added to the lineup.

This afternoon, ROH has revealed another big match-up for the card as Jay Lethal will defend his ROH World Championship against The Kingdom’s Vinny Marseglia:

The road to Madison Square Garden begins deep in the heart of Texas as the stars of Ring of Honor and New Japan Pro-Wrestling do battle on Road to G1 Supercard – Houston on Jan. 25!

Your favorite stars will be in action, jockeying for position as ROH heads toward 17th Anniversary in Las Vegas, the final stop on the Road to G1 Supercard in Baltimore, and finally, The World’s Most Famous Arena!

ROH’s return to Houston for the first time in nine years features Night 2 of Tag Wars, a 12-team tournament for a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles at 17th Anniversary on March 15 and a spot in the Crockett Cup, a tag team tournament co-promoted by the NWA and ROH, on April 27.

In addition to the Tag Wars matches, ROH officials have also signed several other outstanding match-ups. Just announced is an ROH World Title match between champion Jay Lethal and one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions, Vinny Marseglia of The Kingdom.

ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP MATCH
ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL vs. VINNY MARSEGLIA

Lethal was originally scheduled to defend the championship in Houston against Chris Sabin, who earned the title opportunity by taking Lethal to a 20-minute draw in a Proving Ground Match in November. However, Sabin suffered a knee injury during ROH’s international television taping in Atlanta Jan. 12 and will be out of action for an unspecified amount of time.

With Lethal needing a new opponent, The Kingdom’s Marseglia stepped up to issue a sinister challenge. However, The Horror King made it clear that he has no interest in becoming ROH World Champion. That’s because he considers Kingdom leader Matt Taven to be the real world champion and Lethal to be a fraud.

Marseglia, obviously doing Taven’s bidding, has vowed to defeat Lethal in Houston and then drop the ROH World Title belt in the garbage.

Lethal, the epitome of a fighting champion, immediately accepted Marseglia’s challenge, and ROH officials have sanctioned it.

Will Lethal send a message to Taven by making an example of Marseglia? Or will Marseglia do the unthinkable by upsetting Lethal and trashing the belt? Join us LIVE in Houston to find out!

All three nights of Road to G1 Supercard in Texas Jan. 24-26 will stream LIVE worldwide for HonorClub. Keep it locked to ROHWrestling.com and the ROH App for more first-round match announcements.

Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle (2/19/19)

Start your Tuesday off with commentary on DX in the Hall Of Fame, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!

Jason shuffles into Tuesday with the Chairshot Wrestling News Shuffle! Today we take a look at news on DX, Lacey Evans, heat for Lio Rush, and more!

Why Becky Lynch Won The Royal Rumble

Many fans have been questioning why Becky Lynch won the Royal Rumble if the goal was to have Charlotte inserted in to storyline with Ronda Rousey. The current storyline between the three would have made more sense had Charlotte won. Dave Meltzer stated on the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio that Vince McMahon was insistent that Becky Lynch win the Royal Rumble.

Are You Ready?

It was announced earlier today that the first members of the WWE Hall Of Fame Class of 2019 will be none other than D-Generation X. Xpac, Shawn Michaels, HHH, The New Age Outlaws and Chyna will all be a part of the induction.

Big Plans For Lacey Evans?

Since debuting on the main roster and participating in the Royal Rumble, fans have wondered what creatives plans are for Lacey Evans. According to Dave Meltzer and the latest edition of Wrestling Observer Radio, Lacey Evans is in for a gigantic push, and there are many backstage officials that are very high on her.

Lio Rush Has Heat ?

Sunday nights finish to the Intercontinental title match between Finn Balor and Bobby Lashley has people scratching their heads. Perhaps there is reason to the breakup of Lashley and his hype man Lio Rush. According to PWI Insider Elite, Rush has heat backstage.

“It appears as if Lio Rush is done with Bobby Lashley. I can tell you behind the scenes there were not a lot of people surprised at that and not a lot of people surprised that Lio took the pin.”

“There are times Lio has a reputation for rubbing people — including other workers the wrong way. Whether that was being held against him and that was part of the reasoning for him losing or whether it was just a decision to protect Lashley and shift the belt to Finn Balor, I guess we’ll have to see based on how Lio is presented in the weeks and months to come.”

Jason’s Thoughts On Today’s News

DX is getting a well deserved Hall Of Fame Induction, but I have mixed feelings on it. This feels like an easy way out for WWE to have Chyna included into the HOF, rather than have her inducted as an individual. Also, I am probably in the minority on this, but there are others more deserving to be in before DX. I personally would have went with the NWO, but I am a mark for the NWO, so that’s just me.

Lacey Evans has the look, and her mic skills aren’t bad, however, she is green as grass. It will be interesting to see what type of program they come up with for her. A clash with Alexa Bliss perhaps?

More On IMPACT Offer To Chris Jericho

Chris Jericho was recently a guest on Wrestling Observer Radio, and during the broadcast he discussed the offer that IMPACT wrestling made to him a few months ago: (credit to Fightful for the transcription below)

“In my mind, from a pure business standpoint, I’m worth as much as Brock Lesnar to WWE as far as what I bring to the table. That’s the watermark that I had. For me to go back to Vince, I want that kind of a deal. When I was starting to talk with Tony (Khan) and New Japan and Impact as well– Impact offered me a hell of a deal for a four match series. We’re talking mid-seven figures. They have some cash as well.”

AEW Double Or Nothing Ticket Sale Notes

Cody Rhodes took to Twitter a few days ago and provided some interesting stats on ticket sales for AEW Double Or Nothing:

Why The Women Didn’t Headline Elimination Chamber

Initially, it was thought that the historic Women’s Tag Team Championship match would headline the Elimination Chamber pay per view, however, according to Fightful, Vince McMahon made the change to swap the match out with the men’s Elimination Chamber match. McMahon felt the women’s match would get the reaction desired to close out the show.

Becky Lynch Re-Injures Knee At Live Event

While it appears to be only in storyline, Becky Lynch appeared to re-injure her knee after attempting to attach Charlotte Flair at a house show Saturday evening.
