Ring of Honor have announced that 3-time ROH Champion Adam Cole will be defending his title against Dalton Castle at the Supercard of Honor event on April 1st. ROH released the following press release for the match:
“When Dalton Castle arrived in ROH for the 2015 Top Prospect Tournament, he immediately turned heads with his flamboyance and unorthodox style.
Since then, “The Party Peacock” has not only proved to be one of the most entertaining performers on the roster, but also one of the toughest and most skilled.
With The Boys by his side, the crowd-pleasing Castle has steadily climbed the ranks in ROH, and now he could be on the verge of becoming ROH World Champion.
At the monumental Supercard of Honor XI in Lakeland, Fla., on Saturday, April 1, Castle will receive his first shot at the ROH World Title, which is currently held by the only three-time champion, Adam Cole.
Whether it’s Cole or someone else who enters Supercard of Honor as ROH World Champion, they would be wise not to underestimate Castle, who has scored victories over the likes of Roderick Strong, Colt Cabana and Japanese legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger in singles matches.
The last time Castle and Cole were in the ring together, it was Castle who got his hand raised in victory. On a recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” the team of Castle and reDRagon defeated Bullet Club’s Cole and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) in a six-man tag match.“
