World title match official for ROH Final Battle

The Ring of Honor World Championship will be on the line as Rush defends against Brody King at Final Battle.

ROH confirmed today that Rush vs. King for the ROH World Championship will take place at this year’s Final Battle pay-per-view. The event is being held on Friday, December 18 and will air on PPV and HonorClub.

In a matchup of top contenders to the World title, King defeated Shane Taylor in the main event of this week’s episode of ROH TV. King then did a post-show interview where he issued a challenge to Rush for Final Battle.

King, who is now a singles act after leaving Villain Enterprises, has gotten wins against Dalton Castle and Taylor since ROH returned with new TV episodes this summer. After being on hiatus since March due to the COVID-19 pandemic, ROH returned to television production in August with closed set tapings.

Rush is a two-time ROH World Champion. He lost the title to PCO at last year’s Final Battle but regained it in a triple threat match against PCO and Mark Haskins at Gateway to Honor this February. Rush hasn’t appeared since ROH’s return to TV production.

Rush vs. King is the second match that’s been announced for Final Battle. EC3 vs. Jay Briscoe is also set for the PPV.
