Two matches have been added to ROH Glory by Honor night two.
ROH announced that The Foundation (Jay Lethal, Jonathan Gresham, Tracy Williams & Rhett Titus) will battle Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson & Homicide) at ROH Glory by Honor night two on August 21.
Plus, The Briscoes (Mark & Jay Briscoe) will square off against the team of Flip Gordon & Demonic Flamita.
The Foundation has lost several battles as of late in its faction war with Violence Unlimited, but the pure wrestling purveyors have an opportunity to get back on track at Glory By Honor Night 2 on Aug. 21 at Philadelphia’s 2300 Arena.
That night, The Foundation (Jay Lethal, Jonathan Gresham, Tracy Williams and Rhett Titus) squares off against Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Tony Deppen, Chris Dickinson and Homicide) in an eight-man tag match.
VU went 2-0 against The Foundation at Best in the World on July 11. King scored a dominant victory over Lethal, and Homicide and Dickinson defeated Titus and Gresham (substituting for the injured Williams) in a Fight Without Honor to win the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
VU also defeated The Foundation in a previous eight-man tag match a couple months ago.
The Foundation’s downward spiral continued this past weekend, when Lethal, Williams, Titus and Joe Keys (substituting for the injured Gresham) lost an eight-man tag match to Shane Taylor Promotions.
It wasn’t all that long ago that The Foundation was the top faction in ROH, as the group had the Pure Title (held by Gresham), World Television Title (held by Williams) and World Tag Team Title (held by Williams and Titus). Only Gresham is still champion.
Can The Foundation turn it around? Or will Violence Unlimited prevail over pure again?
“The Mercenary” Flip Gordon and Demonic Flamita have a heated history as opponents, but they’ll be partners at Glory By Honor Night 2 on Aug. 21 at Philadelphia's 2300 Arena when they take on Jay and Mark Briscoe in tag team action.
When Gordon and Flamita faced each other last year, Gordon won the match and then ripped off Flamita’s mask, the ultimate disrespect one can show a luchador. Flamita won the rematch several months ago, but Gordon again unmasked him.
All of that occurred before Flamita embraced his dark side and transformed into Demonic Flamita. He and Gordon now share a similar philosophy, which is to win at all costs and show no respect for their opponents.
Gordon, by the way, could enter this match as the new ROH World Champion. He challenges Bandido for the title at Glory By Honor Night 1.
As for the Briscoes, they are finally on the same page after settling their differences in the Fight on the Farm earlier this month. As per Papa Briscoe’s demand, Jay and Mark started at the bottom as they embarked on their quest to win their 12th ROH World Tag Team Title.
Since reuniting, the Briscoes are 2-0 and looking every bit like the baddest tag team on the planet.
Here is the updated card for ROH Glory by Honor night two.
