- Ring of Honor has announced that former WWE, WCW and ECW star Stevie Richards will be making his ROH debut against current ROH World & Television Champion Jay Lethal on Saturday, September 26th in Lockport, NY. ROH issued the following:
The ROH RELOADED tour is ending summer HOT! Last Saturday, the ROH RELOADED TOUR kicked off with our return to Atlanta! On that night, STEVIE RICHARDS was invited to appear as a special guest of Ring of Honor. Stevie Richards is a beloved character and athlete who has earned the respect and admiration of everyone in the sport.
Everyone, that is, except the ROH World Champion, Jay Lethal.
During an in-ring interview, Richards explained that he was looking forward to the opportunity to compete against the top stars in ROH, a goal he'd long held. It seems Jay Lethal took offense to Richards and his statements, especially the fact that he himself wasn't on top of Stevie's list. Lethal ran down the veteran, calling him a waste and ordering him out of the ring. Naturally, Richards wasn't about to take the abuse and a huge brawl broke out.
Now when the RELOADED TOUR rolls through Lockport, NY, Stevie Richards will be there and he will be competing! His opponent? JAY LETHAL! Lethal has a huge fight ahead of him in San Antonio when Kyle O'Reilly challenges for the ROH World Championship LIVE on PPV. But regardless of the outcome of that match, Lethal vs. Richards is officially signed for September 26th in Lockport! This isn't about titles. In Lockport, you will see a one-on-one battle based solely on honor and disrespect!
