Faction Warfare

Three factions have battled it out in Ring of Honor over the last few months. At the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view, VLNCE UNLTD debuted and interjected themselves into the feud between The Foundation and La Faccion Ingobernable. Since then, the three factions have gone to war. This has caused The Foundation to break the Code of Honor they have sworn to uphold and participated in an all-out brawl. It also caused LFI to be suspended for an entire month due to the chaos that had taken over Ring of Honor.

The factions had multiple matches against each other at Best in the World that lead to two titles changing hands between the factions. Now, two of the factions will square off in an eight-man tag match. VLNCE UNLTD can’t look past LFI but will also have their hands full on Night 2 of Glory by Honor when VLNCE UNLTD takes on The Foundation in an eight-man tag match.

Glory by Honor Night 1 Main Event – ROH World Championship: Bandido (c) vs. Flip Gordon

Bandido defeated RUSH at Best in the World to become the new ROH World Champion. His first title defense will be against Flip Gordon in the main event of Night 1 of Glory by Honor. Gordon won a 20-man battle royal at ROH Free Enterprise in February of 2020, earning a shot at the ROH World title. He has waited over a year for his chance to compete for the world title. Bandido wants to leave the legendary arena the same way he enters: as ROH World Champion. Will Gordon shock Bandido in his first title defense? Find out at Glory by Honor Night 1.
