The Honor Club is the Ring of Honor pay channel, where you can watch tonight’s bout at Fairfax Excellence before it airs on TV as reported by ROH on its Twitter account.
The first ideas that come from the ROH fans indicate that Lethal’s reign as champion is simply a strategy to get more subscribers in the payment platform. In addition, voices that know the company very well talk that Jay would simply be a short transition champion to get a high number of subscriptions on the platform.
Jay Lethal is an old acquaintance of the Ring of Honor since he was his top champion in 2015. The wrestler was also Pure ROH champion in 2005 and two times champion of television. For many Jay Lethal is a legend of Ring of Honor and independent wrestling.
Outside Ring of Honor has achieved great successes, such as being no more or less 6 times Impact Wrestling champion. Will Jay Lethal be a great world champion again?
