– Cody Rhodes is set to defend the ROH World Championship against Jay Lethal at Revolution Pro Wrestling’s show next Friday. Revolution Pro announced the news that Rhodes will defend the title against Lethal at the event, a week before he faces Dalton Castle at ROH Final Battle. The announcement is below:

It has been agreed with ROH officials that Cody will make one final defense of his ROH gold on his journey to Final Battle.

In a world championship clash which will have huge ramifications for ROH’s biggest show of the year Cody will put his gold on the line against ROH’s franchise and former heavyweight Champion Jay Lethal at Friday December 8th’s ‘Uprising’.

To ensure that Dalton Castle gets his contracted championship match at Final Battle, should Lethal be victorious then two scheduled matches would become one as the Final Battle main event would turn into a 4 way.

Such a match would create history as not only would Castle get his shot, but it would also mark Lethal’s first defense, Cody’s re-match and perhaps most interestingly Cody’s Bullet Club stablemate ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll’s first ever shot at the ROH World Title.

York Hall, Bethnal Green is a very important place for the ROH World Title, it was in this very venue that the ROH gold became a recognized world championship after Samoa Joe defended his belt against The Zebra Kid, Roy Knight in 2003.

The two subsequent title matches in that very building have featured Jay Lethal, once as champion in a successful defense against Mark Haskins at Revolution Pro Wrestling at High Stakes 2015 and once as challenger against Adam Cole during ROH’s Reach For The Sky Tour in November 2016, on Friday December 8th another important chapter in the championships history will be written between the historic walls of UK’s most iconic combat sports venue as Cody & Lethal will go to war again.
