First Match Announced For ROH’s Supercard of Honor Show

When Ring of Honor returns in April, the promotion will host its annual Supercard of Honor event. ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham was originally scheduled to challenge Bandido at the Final Battle Event. However, the match was called off after it was reported that Bandido had tested positive for COVID -19. As a result, Gresham wrestled and defeated Jay Lethal to win the original ROH World Title.

Per ROH:

Jonathan Gresham and Bandido each believe they are the true ROH World Champion. At Supercard of Honor on Friday, April 1, they will square off to determine which of them is the undisputed ROH World Champion.

The highly anticipated winner-take-all match between Bandido – who possesses the most recent version of the ROH World Title belt – and Gresham – who possesses the original ROH World Title belt – will be one of the main events of the annual Supercard of Honor pay-per-view extravaganza at the Curtis Culwell Center in Dallas-Fort Worth.

Tickets for Supercard of Honor go on sale this Friday at 11 a.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Central for HonorClub members, and next Friday, Jan. 28 at 11 a.m. Eastern/10 a.m. Central for the general public.

Bandido had been scheduled to defend the ROH World Title against Gresham at Final Battle: End of an Era on Dec. 11, but Bandido tested positive for COVID-19 two days before the event.

AEW’s Jay Lethal replaced Bandido in the match, which was now for the original ROH World Title belt. Gresham defeated Lethal to become the champion.

Gresham has been defending the title (under Pure rules) in multiple promotions, but Bandido contends that he is still the rightful champion because he was never defeated for the title.

Things came to a head when Bandido confronted Gresham at Terminus’ debut show this past Sunday in Atlanta. The ROH Board of Directors subsequently signed the winner-take-all match for Supercard of Honor.

Bandido and Gresham have been in the ring together several times but this will be the first-ever one-on-one meeting between the sensational luchador and the outstanding technician, and the stakes couldn’t be any higher.
