This match is sure to get the attention of both independent wrestling and ROH fans. As Josh Woods defends his Pure Championship standing across from him is one of the fastest rising names on the independent scene, the Savage Gentleman Victor Benjamin. Fans may have seen his recent work in AEW, but its longstanding veteran has captured the attention of many, including current ROH Pure Champion Josh Woods.

Is this the night The Savage Gentleman walks away as the new Pure Champion?

An exciting bout on this show is this battle of MCs as the Real Deal throws down against Quest Mcody. Unlike typical matches, the implications are pretty straightforward. Between the two of them, who walks out with their microphone in hand and the adoration of those in attendance?

Hurricane Pro-Wrestling Championship
Lufisto vs. Lady Frost

This match is likely the one this previewer is most looking forward to. From Lufisto’s history in the industry to the emergence of Lady Frost on both a local and televised scene, this match won’t disappoint. This match marks the first battle between these two women since 2018. It was for the Rogue Warrior Women’s Championship that saw Lufisto defeat Lady Frost, interestingly enough also in Pennslyvania. That was then, and this is now.

With four years behind her, Lady Frost isn’t the same talent she was then. This time Lady Frost is four years wiser and, with that, will look to avenge her previous loss to Lufisto.

Trios Match
TME vs. The Mane Event

TME’s Ganon Jones Jr Duke Davis team up with Tony Johnson in a trios battle to face the Nolo Kitano, and Mane Event’s Jay Lyon, and Ringleader Midas Black. From their time together initially as the Golden Lyons to their time today as the Mane Event, Lyon and Black have shown just what it takes to be a successful tag team on the independent scene today.

For Jones Jr and Davis, the formerly known Mane Event have also had a successful tag team that has achieved success in their own right. As four-time and current IWC Tag Team Champions, Davis and Jones Jr look to add Tony Johnson to their team in hopes of achieving victory once again.

Jason Hotch vs. Matt Taven vs. Breaux Keller

A triple threat match is always fun. THIS triple threat match on paper appears to be great, but the reality of it is they are sure not to disappoint. As a former ROH Champion, Taven appears to be prepared to put on a show against Keller and Hotch. For 24-year-old Hotch, the Ohio native has emerged over the past few years. His work in AEW, IMPACT, and Game Changer Wrestling has made him someone to look out for.

For Jockzilla, Breaux Keller is a six-year veteran, and their hometown favorite is sure to make this match meaningful for himself as it is for those in attendance.

Chandler Hopkins vs. Marty, the Moth

These two are sure to walk in to this match as established names and walk out with what could be the match of the night. For Hopkins, the seven-year veteran has competed for some of the biggest promotions in North America in AEW and MLW. The same could be said for Marty the Moth, who fans will recall from his time in Lucha Underground. Marty has competed in All Elite Wrestling in more recent times as part of their AEW Dark program.

Marty the Moth against Chandler Hopkins may look one-sided, but when these two get into the ring with one another, fans are likely to get something they didn’t see coming.

Also announced on the show include; Fallah Bahh, World Famous CB, & LSG
