Ring of Honor 19th Anniversary Predictions

ROH Pure Championship: Jonathan Gresham (c) vs. Dak Draper 

Number one contender Dak Draper challenges current champion Jonathan Gresham for the Pure Championship. Draper is coming off a victory against Fred Yehi and a dark match victory against Joe Keys to cement his shot against Gresham. Draper is looking to dethrone the current champ and member of The Foundation, Jonathan Gresham. Gresham won the Pure Tournament to capture the title in November of last year. He has successfully defended the title against Flip Gordon and Joe Keys and has looked every bit the part of a great Pure champ. Will he be able to make it three defenses in a row?

Prediction: Gresham retains 


ROH World Tag Team Championship: Bestia Del Ring* and Kenny King (c) vs. Rhett Titus and Tracy Williams 

Current tag team champion Dragon Lee was removed from the card at the last second to address an eardrum injury. His father and La Facción Ingobernable stablemate will take his place in the match alongside Kenny King to take on The Foundation’s Rhett Titus and Tracy Williams. The two factions have been feuding on ROH TV for some time as they sit on opposite ends of the ROH philosophy. The Foundation believes in restoring the honor that ROH was founded on while LFI aims to turn ROH upside down by any means necessary. The two factions squared off in an eight-man tag match on ROH TV #496 that ended with LFI standing tall. Will that momentum carry into the 19th Anniversary PPV?

Prediction: LFI retains 

ROH World Television Title: Kenny King* (c) vs. Tracy Williams

Dragon Lee was scheduled to pull double duty at 19th Anniversary, defending both the Television and Tag Team Titles. Due to his injury, Lee’s LFI stablemate Kenny King will pull double duty and defend the ROH World Television Title on his behalf. Number one contender Tracy Williams is coming off of victories against The World Famous CB and a dark triple threat victory over Bandido and LSG. Williams is looking to take some of the ROH gold off of LFI and bring it back to The Foundation. Williams will also compete in two matches on the card, and is looking to bring home two new belts to The Foundation

Prediction: King wins on behalf of Dragon Lee 

ROH World Championship: RUSH (c) vs. Jay Lethal  

RUSH has held the ROH World Championship since February 2020 when he defeated PCO and Mark Haskins in a triple threat match. He has successfully defended the title against Brody King and Shane Taylor. The leader of LFI will square off with ‘The Franchise’ Jay Lethal who will represent The FoundationLethal earned his number one containership with a fatal four-way victory over EC3, Matt Taven, and Jay Briscoe. The two squared off as part of the LFI vs Foundation eight-man tag match on ROH TV in which LFI won. Lethal is looking to shake off the loss and capture his third ROH World Championship, which would tie him with Adam Cole for most all-time.

Prediction: RUSH retains
