Brian Johnson vs. Danhausen

The number four contender and winner of the four corners survival match at 19th Anniversary, Brian Johnson, is set for a rematch against Danhausen. The two first met in Ring of Honor at Final Battle 2020. Danhausen needed to win the match to earn his ROH contract. After the referee was inadvertently knocked down by Johnson, Danhausen seized the opportunity to grab a microphone and rub some of his face paint off. With the referee back in action, Danhausen did his best Eddie Guerrero impression and convinced the referee that he had been hit with the microphone. This ended the match by disqualification and gave Danhausen his ROH contract.

With his ROH contract awarded, the two would square off again in a YouTube exclusive match where Johnson got his revenge. Johnson turned off a microphone and hit Danhausen in the head, avoiding any sound coming over the PA. The referee did not see the shot as he was re-attaching a pad to an exposed turnbuckle. This gave Johnson the opening he needed to pin Danhausen and win the match. The two squared off again during the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view as part of the four corners survival match. It looked like Danhausen was going to pin LSG for the win when Johnson pulled LSG out of the ring. Johnson snuck behind Danhausen giving him a finger to the eye and The Process to pin him. The two will square off one on one again on ROH TV #498 to settle the score.
