New Ring of Honor owner Tony Khan has announced that the ROH Pure Title will be defended at Supercard of Honor XV.
Khan took to Twitter today and announced that Josh Woods will defend the Pure Title against AEW’s Wheeler Yuta.
“ROH Supercard of Honor Next Friday April 1, Dallas Metroplex @ringofhonor Pure Wrestling Champion Josh Woods (@WoodsIsTheGoods) will defend the title vs. one of wrestling’s brightest young stars @WheelerYuta! Supercard tickets on sale @ rohtix.com + on PPV @FiteTV,” Khan wrote.
Woods won the ROH Pure Title from current ROH World Champion Jonathan Gresham back at Death Before Dishonorr XVIII on September 12. Since then he has defended the title three times – against LSG on the November 5 ROH TV show, against Brian Johnson at Final Battle in December, and against Dak Draper on the December 17 ROH TV show.
Woods is also currently working some dates for AEW. He debuted on AEW Dark back in December with a loss to Shawn Spears, then lost to Daniel Garcia on Dark in February. He defeated AC Adams on Dark this month. Yuta has been with AEW since June 2021, and worked several for ROH in 2020 and 2021.
