Ring of Honor returns to pay-per-view this Friday night with their annual Best in the World event, live from the UMBC Event Center in Baltimore, Maryland.
The show will be headlined with a pair of world title matches, as Matt Taven defends his ROH World Championship against Jeff Cobb, the impressive Hawaiian Suplex Machine who is about to wow crowds internationally as a part of this year’s NJPW G1 Climax tournament.
Bandido will have a monstrous challenge ahead of him, as he attempts to defend the ROH World Television Championship against the imposing Shane Taylor. Former IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Champion Dragon Lee will also be in singles action against Dalton Castle, while his big brother Rush takes on Flip Gordon.
One major question that remains to be answered is who will replace NWA National Champion Colt Cabana, who is currently out of action with an injury. Cabana was scheduled to team with NWA Worlds Champion Nick Aldis against 10-time ROH World Tag Team Champions Mark and Jay Briscoe.
ROH Best in the World will air live this Friday night on FITE TV kicking off at 9PM ET. The cost of the show will be $34.99.
