Bandido To Face PJ Black At ROH Honor Reigns Supreme

Bandido’s signing is a major get for Ring Of Honor. Rumor has it that ROH outbid both WWE and AEW for the services of the luchador. Bandido will make his debut on January 13 at Honor Reigns Supreme, and his opponent has been named. Bandido will face PJ Black in what is sure to be an absolute spectacle. The following is from ROHWrestling.com:

Bandido was the talk of the professional wrestling world when he went from relative unknown to main event of the biggest independent wrestling event of all time. A fourth-generation wrestler, Bandido has made a name for himself around the globe. In addition to wrestling in his native Mexico, the 23-year-old luchador has competed extensively in Japan as well as the UK, Australia and on U.S. independents, most notably Pro Wrestling Guerrilla.

In September, Bandido competed in PWG’s Battle of Los Angeles and advanced to the finals, where he was defeated by current ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb. Earlier that month, he teamed with fellow masked stars Rey Mysterio and Fenix against The Golden Elite (The Young Bucks and Kota Ibushi) in the main event of the All In pay-per-view.

But while Bandido has seen his stock rise rapidly, he faces an opponent who has been competing globally since the age of 16, a man who left everything in South Africa to pursue and obtain international superstardom in “The Darewolf” PJ Black!

Black has competed in main events all over the globe, wrestling in more countries, 63, than just about any other wrestler and in nearly every state, 48. Black’s rise to the top in some ways mirrored Bandido’s but now both are in ROH, looking to climb the Championship ladders!

Who will pick up the victory in this first-time one-on-one match?
