For the first time since being forced to miss March’s 19th Anniversary pay-per-view due to injury, Dragon Lee is returning to Ring of Honor.
On the ROH TV episode that premieres the weekend of Saturday, June 12, Dragon Lee & Kenny King will challenge for Tracy Williams & Rhett Titus’ ROH Tag Team titles in a Pure Rules match. The announcement was made on the latest edition of ROH Week By Week.
Dragon Lee had to miss ROH’s 19th Anniversary PPV due to suffering a ruptured eardrum. Lee & King held the ROH Tag Team titles going into the PPV, but Williams & Titus defeated King & Bestia del Ring to become champions. Bestia del Ring was filling in for Dragon Lee in the match.
Dragon Lee was also ROH Television Champion heading into the 19th Anniversary PPV. King defended the TV title on his behalf and lost it to Williams. Tony Deppen has since defeated Williams to become TV Champion.
It was said on ROH Week By Week that Dragon Lee is also scheduled to get a TV title shot on ROH TV very soon.
