Something has to headline. The Coronavirus pandemic has wiped out a lot of the wrestling that was scheduled to take place this year. There are only so many ways to have wrestling going when you cannot have crowds or anything close to them, which caused several wrestling promotions to shift towards Best Of shows or have nothing at all. Some of them are back though, and one of them is getting ready for their biggest show of the year.
Ring Of Honor was one of the higher profile promotions to go on hiatus for a good chunk of the year. That was quite the problem for the company as they have only been back for a few months now, leaving them without much time to get ready for Final Battle, their biggest show of the year. The event is scheduled to take place on December 18 and now we have a main event for the card.
Ring Of Honor has announced that the main event of Final Battle 2020 will see Brody King challenging Rush for the World Title. This will be the first title defense for Rush, who won the title back on February 29 but has been stuck in Mexico due to travel restrictions. King has wrestled on recent Ring Of Honor television shows. This is the second match announced for the show, along with EC3 vs. Jay Briscoe.
They should be ready. Check out the two parts of the main event:
Opinion: The company has been in a weird place for the last several months and this is about as good of a move as they could have made. Rush is a dominant force but there is only so much that can be done with the champion being stuck in Mexico for so long. It is good to see the champ getting back out there but it might make a lot more sense to have King get the title here, just for the sake of having a more available champion.
What do you think of the match? Who leaves with the title? Let us know in the comments below.
