Jay Lethal vs. Jonathan Gresham Added to ROH Masters of the Craft
Posted By: Caylon Knox on Mar 25, 2018
Ring of Honor Wrestling has announced that former ROH Pure Champion, Television Champion, and World Champion Jay Lethal will be taking on former Combat Zone Wrestling World Heavyweight Champion Jonathan Gresham at Masters of the Craft in Columbus, Ohio on April 15th.
At Honor Reigns Supreme in February, Jonathan Gresham proved in front of an international audience that he could step up and go toe-to-toe with the very best professional wrestlers in the world. Before a knee injury undoubtedly slowed him down in an instant classic against Jay Lethal, Gresham looked like he was about to pick up the biggest win of his career.
Gresham, sensing he can beat one of the greatest champions Ring of Honor has ever seen, has asked ROH for a rematch. The ROH Board of Directors granted that match with one caveat – Gresham must be 100% healthy and medically cleared before he would get his opportunity. With Gresham medically cleared, he will get his rematch and it will stream LIVE for HonorClub!
JAY LETHAL vs. JONATHAN GRESHAM
Jay Lethal is one of the greatest champions ROH has ever seen, holding one or both of the ROH World and ROH World Television Championships for over two-straight years. Lethal is a perennial top contender and the key to his success has been taking every opponent like a legitimate threat to defeat him under any circumstance.
In Concord, Lethal was well aware of the technical wrestling prowess Gresham possessed, honed by years of international travel in over a dozen countries in four continents. Gresham seemed to have an answer for everything Lethal delivered and vice versa, leading to a must-see bout. For Gresham, the loss was frustrating as “The Octopus” injured his knee near the middle of the match.
Gresham will get his rematch with a healthy knee and nothing to lose at Masters of the Craft, streaming LIVE from Columbus, OH for HonorClub. Can Gresham execute the game plan fully and pick up the biggest win of his career or will Jay Lethal prove once again why he has been labeled “The Franchise” and “The Greatest Wrestler in the World”? If the first match was any indication, you don’t want to miss this one!
