British Cruiserweight Champion Josh Bodom takes on Jay Lethal at War of the Worlds UK: Liverpool

Coming hot off the heels of the sold-out War of the Worlds 2017 Tour in North America, ROH is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with NJPW, CMLL and Revolution Pro Wrestling, the first-ever War of the Worlds UK Tour from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!
 
The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!
 
The Liverpool stop of the War of the Worlds UK Tour will be available LIVE on ROHWrestling.com and the Fite.TV app! The event goes live in the US and Canada at 1:00 PM EST and the card will feature championship bouts and first-time international battles! In a rematch over three years in the making, a young RevPro star looks to double-down on what was a major upset at the time and prove he is one of the best in the world!

JAY LETHAL vs. BRITISH CRUISERWEIGHT CHAMPION JOSH BODOM
 
On April 4, 2014, Jay Lethal defeated Tommaso Ciampa in a 2-out-of-3 Falls bout to capture the ROH World Television Title for the second time. That victory led to the longest title reign with the most defenses in the history of the World TV title.
 
But on March 15, Lethal was upset at RevPro Highstakes 2014, his last singles match before his championship opportunity. The man that defeated him? Josh Bodom.
 
Bodom had only been a professional wrestler for just under three years when he had the opportunity to step in the ring with Lethal. Lethal, perhaps looking ahead to his TV Title match, maybe took Bodom lightly. Three years later, Bodom and Lethal meet once more on digital Pay Per View! 
 
The TV Title win launched a period of two-straight years of interrupted success where Lethal held one or both the ROH World and World TV Titles. The last man to beat him before that run started in a one-on-one match is now three years more experienced and has picked up victories over Prince Devitt, Noam Darr, David Starr, and most recently defeated former ROH World TV Champion Will Ospreay to capture the title he still holds, the British Cruiserweight Championship! 
 
While the title will not be on the line, Bodom has an opportunity to go 2-0 against one of the best in the world, the Franchise of ROH, who is battling broken ribs at the hands of Silas Young and Beer City Bruiser! Will lightning strike twice or will Lethal avenge his loss and pick up the victory on digital Pay Per View? Join us to find out!
