Junior heavyweight legend Jushin "Thunder" Liger has an opponent for Death Before Dishonor.
ROH announced that Liger will take on Kenny King at the Sept. 28 event.
Kenny King will look to continue his winning streak when he takes on the legendary Jushin “Thunder” Liger in a huge, first-time bout in Las Vegas at Death Before Dishonor!
But the real test will come in his environment. With his best friend Aries’ encouragement, King has demonstrated he can dip into a dark side to gain an edge to win big time matches. But with what should be a record ROH Las Vegas crowd on hand, will he stoop to those levels with his family and friends in attendance to try to defeat a legend like Jushin Liger?
Liger returns to ROH for the first time since the War of the Worlds Tour and looks to pick up a big victory against a top contender for the ROH World Championship. With victories over multiple former ROH World Champions like Low Ki, Bryan Danielson, and Dalton Castle and with a legendary resume, Liger is always one win away from earning a championship bout. A win against King would assuredly put him in line for a title shot of his choosing!
ROH Death Before Dishonor takes place on Sept. 28 from the Orleans Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada. Fightful will provide full coverage of the event.
