A new challenger has emerged.
Bandido is looking for his shot at the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title. ROH released a video of Bandido, looking comfortable on his balcony, issuing a challenge to Taiji Ishimori and Dragon Lee, asking to be added to their bout at ROH-NJPW G1 Supercard. Bandido stated there needs an ROH representative in the match. Ishimori represents NJPW while Lee represents CMLL.
Ishimori successfully defended the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Title at NJPW 47th Anniversary event on Wednesday morning, defeating the legendary Jushin Thunder Liger. Following the bout, Ishimori challenged anyone to step up and face him at Madison Square Garden. Dragon Lee answered the call.
