Dalton Castle gets his long awaited championship rematch against Jay Lethal in January.
ROH announced that Lethal will defend his ROH World Title against Castle at Honor Reigns Supreme on Jan. 13.
After losing the ROH World Title to Jay Lethal in a Four Corner Survival Match this past June, Castle took several months off to deal with the painful back and hamstring injuries that had been hampering him. As he attempted to mend his body, the former champion said he had just one thing on his mind: regaining the championship that he had held for more than six months.
With several competitors owed a title match, Castle earned the right to be first in line during the international television taping in Philadelphia over the weekend. Castle, who won the title from Cody at Final Battle 2017, holds a victory over Lethal, as he successfully defended the ROH World Title against him at the 16th Anniversary Show this past March.
Lethal avenged that loss a few months later by pinning Castle to win the title in the Four Corner Survival Match, and he has been at the top of his game ever since. The two-time ROH World Champion is coming off an impressive victory over Cody at Final Battle and also has made successful title defenses against the likes of Will Ospreay, Mark Haskins, Silas Young, Kenny King and Jonathan Gresham. “The Franchise of ROH” is closing in on 600 combined days as champion, which is second only to Samoa Joe’s 645 days on top.
Honor Reigns Supreme takes place on Jan. 13 from the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC. Fightful will provide full results from the event.
