Fresh off his title defense against Will Ospreay, ROH World Champion Jay Lethal will put his belt on the line once again on Oct. 12.
ROH announced that Lethal will defend the title against Silas Young at ROH Glory By Honor in Baltimore.
Jay Lethal has epitomized the title of World Champion. For over 500 combined days, Lethal has held the ROH World Championship across two reigns. In his second reign, Lethal has defended the Championship against the best of the best, including Mark Haskins in London, Jonathan Gresham in Atlanta, and Will Ospreay in Las Vegas. Leading up to his Championship reign, however, Lethal may have been equally impressive. Lethal pledged to defeat the shortlist of opponents that defeated him before challenging for the World Championship once again.
Lethal defeated Matt Taven, Punishment Martinez, KUSHIDA, Chuckie T., and Mark Briscoe before pinning then-ROH World Champion Dalton Castle, a man who pinned him at 16th Anniversary, to capture the Championship in Fairfax, VA. With the “Lethal Challenge” in full effect, Lethal is offering a Championship match to anyone who believes they can win the Championship.
But Lethal best be careful what he asks for. Because in Baltimore, a man that has beaten Lethal several times, including in Last Man Standing and No Disqualification matches, has answered the call!
