ROH on HonorClub Episode 59 Preview


There is a new Ring of Honor World Champion in the house and his name is Mark Briscoe! For the first time in the history of ROH, “Chicken” has claimed a singles championship to go along with the thirteen ROH World Tag Titles and one ROH World Six-Man Championship reign on his resume, and he aims to carry that title with the same respect, with the same honor, that his predecessor Eddie Kingston did during his reign. You can hear a snippet of what Mark had to say to the Philadelphia fans after SUPERCARD OF HONOR 2024 went off the air right here, and you can see the full match, as well as the complete action-packed event, any time with your Honor Club subscription!



As joyous an occasion as Mark's title victory may be, Thursday is a new day and a new episode of ROH ON HONOR CLUB, meaning that for him, as well as ROH Women's World Champion Athena, ROH World TV Champion Kyle Fletcher, new ROH Women's World TV Champion Billie Starkz, ROH World Tag Champions Taven & Bennett, as well as everyone else on the roster, it's time to get back to work!



The action begins Thursday night kicking off at 7pm ET/6pm CT exclusively on Honor Club, your home for over 20 years of professional wrestling history, as well as the only spot to watch the replay of SUPERCARD OF HONOR 2024 featuring the crowning of Mark Briscoe as ROH World Champion!


PROVING GROUND MATCH...

ROH World Television Champion Kyle Fletcher(c) vs. “The Professional” Rhett Titus

If one wants to talk homegrown Ring of Honor originals, look no further than “The Professional” Rhett Titus; this is a man who began his career inside the ring of the ROH Wrestling Academy, who had his first match in Dayton, OH at the hallowed Montgomery County Fairgrounds in January 2005, and went on to capture the ROH World Television Championship, a ROH World Tag Champion with Kenny King, a ROH World Tag Champion with Tracy Williams, the final ROH Top of the Class Trophy holder, and multi-time Survival of the Fittest Tournament participant. He has Ring of Honor flowing through his veins, and has wanted nothing more than to reclaim the ROH World TV Title ever since Minoru Suzuki defeated him for it at SUPERCARD OF HONOR 2022.


Rhett unsuccessfully took a crack at Samoa Joe, the man who dethroned Suzuki, last October on COLLISION, and after competing at SUPERCARD OF HONOR 2024: ZERO HOUR last Friday night, he's itching to get back to the place where it all began. But just because Titus has a lengthy history with Ring of Honor doesn't mean he can slide right back into a championship match, he's got to earn it the hard way, and that means stepping onto the Proving Ground to earn a World Television Championship match! It's not Rhett's first time competing in a Proving Ground match, in fact The All Night Express were the first people to ever win a Proving Ground match, earning a World Tag Team Championship bout by beating Charlie Hass & Shelton Benjamin, though the eventual title fight did not go their way. The other two PG matches on Titus' resume, one a tag and the other a Four Corner Survival, did to not go in his favor, but this marks his first one-on-one match under these stipulations, so that means Rhett can either last the time limit with Kyle Fletcher, or defeat the champion, and a future World TV Title match will be his!


Fletcher is coming off quite an impressive victory over Lee Johnson at SUPERCARD 2024 (www.watchroh.com), one that Titus was no doubt watching with a very close eye, and is dead set on going down in history as the greatest TV Champion of all-time. Can Rhett Titus derail those aspirations and become a 2-Time Champion, or will Fletcher get one notch closer to etching his name alongside Samoa Joe, Jay Lethal, Adam Cole, Roderick Strong, and Matt Taven in the pantheon of great TV Champions?


ONE-ON-ONE...

“The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels vs. Cole Karter


Coming off a tag team victory over Serpentico and Angelico during the ZERO HOUR last Friday night, Cole Karter aims to keep proving himself to Maria, this time by taking on a fight with the first-ever ROH Grand Slam Champion, one of the original foundations of honor, “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels!


Having been an integral part of ROH since THE ERA OF HONOR BEGINS, and one of the landscape shaping forces in independent wrestling, Christopher Daniels has taken on every challenge before him, battled everyone who's ever stepped inside the ROH ring, and though it took him a few years to come around to it, to this day he continues to fight for a code of honor.


One of the people that has stepped to Daniels in the recent past is Cole Karter; in fact just over a year ago, on the 3/6/23 edition of DARK: ELEVATION, “The Fallen Angel” defeated Cole Karter in singles competition, and then proceeded to do the same during ROH ON HONOR CLUB #12 in tag team combat. In all fairness to Karter, it was a random partnership with Zack Clayton rather than the man who has become his tag partner Griff Garrison and it was before he came under the guidance of Maria, but it's still a second loss in the books where Christopher Daniels is concerned, and something he's longing to redeem.


So this Thursday night Cole Karter will have his opportunity when he goes one-on-one with the former ROH World Champion during an all-new ROH ON HONOR CLUB! Will he impress Maria once again, just like he and Griff did during the ZERO HOUR, or will the veteran experience of “The Fallen Angel” again prove more than young Karter is able to overcome?
