On Friday, Aug. 19th and Saturday, Aug. 20th, the stars of RING of HONOR and NEW JAPAN PRO-WRESTLING converge on Sin City for two nights of electrifying action! One of the premier ROH events of the year, DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR XIV, will emanate from SAM’S TOWN LIVE and be broadcast around the globe on Pay Per View, the FITE TV App, Playstation Network, and ROHWrestling.com! The next night, the stars from each promotion will return to Sam’s Town to do battle in a national television taping with truly global implications!
The partnership between Ring of Honor and New Japan continues to grow stronger each day. Fans of both companies have requested talent and thought of dream matches that they would like to see take place on both sides of the Pacific.
The following match for Death Before Dishonor XIV has just been signed:
FOUR CORNER SURVIVAL NO. 1 CONTENDER’S MATCH FOR SHOT AT ROH TV TITLE
DONOVAN DIJAK vs. LIO RUSH vs. JAY WHITE vs. KAMAITACHI
Four of the hottest young stars in ROH will vie for a shot at the ROH World Television Title when Donovan Dijak, Lio Rush, Jay White and Kamaitachi battle one another in a Four Corner Survival Match.
The victor will go on to face the winner of the ROH World Television Title Match at Death Before Dishonor between champion Bobby Fish and Mark Briscoe.
Dijak (2015) and Rush (2016) are the past two Top Prospect Tournament winners, but that’s where the similarities between them end.
Dijak, at 6-7 and 270 pounds, has laid claim to being the biggest and baddest man in ROH, while the diminutive-but-dynamic Rush has proved that in his case, size doesn’t matter.
White, who came to ROH last month after competing in New Japan Pro Wrestling and training at the NJPW dojo for a year and a half,has made an immediate impact. On a recent episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling, White defeated Kamaitachi, and then went on to pin Christopher Daniels in an impromptu six-man tag match in which White and The Motor City Machine Guns beat The Addiction (Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) and Kamaitachi.
Kamaitachi, who has displayed a willingness to achieve victory by any means necessary since coming under the tutelage of The Addiction, unleashed an unprovoked attack on White when the New Zealand native was sitting ringside at the Best in the World Pay Per View a month ago.
All four of these outstanding athletes have bright futures, but only one of them will walk out of this match with an ROH World TV Title shot and an opportunity to show that the future has arrived.
