New Title Match Set For ROH Death Before Dishonor

ROH issued the following:

During the gauntlet to crown the number one contenders for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship, Alex Shelley suffered nerve damage in his gums and mouth, a concussion, and jaw injuries, putting him on the shelf. Shelley was competing in the match without Motor City Machine Guns partner Chris Sabin because Sabin was competing in the Best of Super Juniors tournament, where he won three matches and reestablished himself as a top singles star.

Following the injury, Sabin got Shelley’s blessing to follow this path. A former World Champion in not only tag team and singles action, Sabin earned a future World Television Championship shot by defeating former two-time ROH World Television Champion Silas Young in a number one contender’s match. And following the despicable blindside attack on he and Shelley in Atlanta, Sabin wants to cash it in against the largest man to ever hold the World Television Championship!

It is hard to hide a near 6’7”, 265 lbs frame but Punishment Martinez did just that, lurking in the shadows until the time was right to attack the number one contender and his long-time best friend and tag team partner following an emotional series of revelations by Alex Shelley about the status of his professional wrestling career.

Martinez, who captured the title at State of the Art: Dallas by pinning Silas Young in the main event, was looking to fire the first shot and hit Sabin both physically and proverbially where it hurts. Now, Sabin, knowing his partner is taking a sabbatical, has quickly climbed the singles ranks and not only is motivated by gold but also by the fact that he could get revenge against Martinez!

Last year’s Death Before Dishonor in Las Vegas saw both men pull the equivalent of three 7s or straight flushes: Martinez dispatching of “Switchblade” Jay White in a Vegas Street Fight to end their feud while Sabin and Shelley defeated the Young Bucks to win the ROH World Tag Team Titles. But this year, someone will hit the jackpot while the other will draw a bad beat. Who will walk out of Las Vegas World Television Champion?
