We recently confirmed that despite interest in All Elite Wrestling, Bandido had signed with Ring Of Honor.
The popular luchador was faced with a difficult choice at the time, and ended up taking the deal ROH offered prior to All Elite Wrestling’s official announcement.
We also reported that ROH had signed popular U.K. independent wrestler, Mark Haskins. Rumors had circled Haskins for a while regarding his signing to the company, ever since last year’s Honor Reunited tour in the United Kingdom.
Ring Of Honor has now revealed each man’s opponent for their respective television debuts: each other.
That’s right. Next Saturday’s 1/12 ROH TV tapings, which take place in Atlanta, Georgia will see both newly signed wrestlers face off against one another for their television debut, giving both an immediate opportunity to try and make an impact.
