ROH Final Battle card adds three title bouts and the Von Erichs

Ring of Honor heads into Garland, TX for Final Battle on Friday, December 15. The card was still looking light after ROH TV failed to produce any additions, then Tony Khan hopped on the Twitter machine to fill out the lineup. Final Battle will include a AAA title fight, a filthy challenger for the Pure Championship, NJPW sending a crew to compete for the six-man titles, and the Von Erichs in action.

Final Battle receives lucha libre flair when Hijo del Vikingo defends the AAA Megacampeonato against Black Taurus. This match is going to kick ass. Vikingo and Taurus have great chemistry as rivals in AAA.

Wheeler Yuta is putting the ROH Pure Championship on the line against “Filthy” Tom Lawlor. Lawlor was the inaugural NJPW Strong openweight champion as well as former MLW world heavyweight champion. He is a perfect fit for the Pure division with a legit background in sanctioned MMA combat.

NJPW is sending over Shane Haste, Bad Dude Tito, and Kosei Fujita from The Mighty Don’t Kneel to challenge Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun, and Toa Liona for the ROH World Six-Man Championship. The backstory for this bout is TMDK beating the Gates of Agony in the NJPW World Tag League.

The Zero Hour pre-show will feature the Von Erichs in front of the Texas faithful. Ross and Marshall will compete against the Outrunners.

The full lineup for Final Battle includes:

  • ROH Women’s World Championship: Athena (c) vs. Billie Starkz
  • ROH World Television Championship: Survival of the Fittest with Dalton Castle, Komander, Kyle Fletcher, Lee Moriarty, Lee Johnson, plus a mystery competitor
  • ROH Pure Championship: Wheeler Yuta (c) vs. Tom Lawlor
  • ROH World Six-Man Championship: Brian Cage, Bishop Kaun, & Toa Liona (c) vs. Shane Haste, Bad Dude Tito, & Kosei Fujita
  • AAA Megacampeonato: Hijo del Vikingo (c) vs. Black Taurus
  • Fight Without Honor: Bryan Danielson, Jon Moxley, & Claudio Castagnoli vs. FTR & Mark Briscoe
  • I Quit match: Ethan Page vs. Tony Nese
  • Keith Lee vs. Shane Taylor
  • Von Erichs vs. Outrunners (pre-show)

Final Battle will air exclusively on ROH HonorClub.
