    The rich history of professional wrestling in Dallas, Texas stretches back for decades...and now it continues with Ring of Honor! Long ago, every Saturday, the brutal battles between legends such as the Von Erichs and the Fabulous Freebirds captivated fans in the Sportatorium. Now the Dallas-Fort Worth area is set to get an even bigger dose of Ring of Honor...and this time we are going LIVE! All of your favorite ROH stars will be there LIVE for SUPERCARD OF HONOR as part of the biggest professional wrestling weekend in 2016!

    SUPERCARD OF HONOR X is already SOLD OUT, but these events will be made available for later viewing on ROHWRESTLING.com as VOD releases.

    Another chapter in the history of great wrestling in Dallas will be written on April 1st and April 2rd, 2016. The Hyatt Regency Dallas will be THE place to be on Friday night and Saturday afternoon. Professional wrestling fans from all over the world will descend on Dallas, and ROH is going to give you an experience you will never, ever forget!

    Just signed for NIGHT 1 of SUPERCARD OF HONOR X:

    ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP
    JAY LETHAL w/TAELER HENDRIX VS. LIO RUSH

    In winning the 2016 ROH TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT, Lio Rush not only secured himself an ROH contract, he is now guaranteed an ROH World Television Championship opportunity. This has always been an integral element of the tournament, as both a reward to the winner and motivation for future starts to get their names entered into the field. In fact, former winner Matt Taven used his championship opportunity to WIN the title!

    But even more shocking than Rush's tournament victory was the crowning of a new ROH World Television Champion in NJPW's Tomohiro Ishii! Known as the "Stone Pitbull," Ishii had the entire wrestling world buzzing when he defeated Roderick Strong at HONOR RISING with the title on the line! Although Ishii has defended his championship in ROH since, it's clear that his NJPW commitments will influence the TV title scene. Realizing the Lio Rush earned a championship opportunity that he should be awarded sooner rather than later, ROH Head Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness has just signed a history-making match for April 1st in Dallas!

    Lio Rush WILL challenge for Ring of Honor gold at SUPERCARD OF HONOR X...but it will be for the ROH World Championship against JAY LETHAL!

    That's right, in just one year of professional wrestling, Lio Rush could go from unknown underdog to ROH World Champion! Nigel planned on giving the 2016 Top Prospect his TV Title shot at Supercard of Honor. However since the current TV Champion has Japanese commitments over Supercard weekend... Nigel decided to raise the stakes and give the Top Prospect a WORLD TITLE shot! Lethal is going to have to back up his claims to be the best in the world one more time in this historic match where the winner of the Top Prospect Tournament gets a first-time-ever opportunity at the biggest star in Ring of Honor! SUPERCARD OF HONOR X is shaping up to be TWO unforgettable nights of Ring of Honor action!
