Ring of Honor announced today that the way they are handling Friday’s TV title situation is doing a three-way match with new champion Tomohiro Ishii facing the original two wrestlers who were scheduled to battle, former champion Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish.
Ishii won the title on Friday at Korakuen Hall.
There was question as to whether Ishii vs. Hirooki Goto, originally scheduled on the card, would become the title mach, or if Ishii would face Strong, since an angle on the Saturday night show at Korakuen Hall indicated the match with Strong. Instead they announced a three-way match for the title with Roderick Strong and Bobby Fish.
Goto will still be on the show against an opponent as not yet named.
The companies 14th anniversary show will be from a sold out Sam’s Town Casino Arena in Las Vegas on Friday February 26th, headlined by Jay Lethal defending the ROH title in a three-way against Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole.
