Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing a first time grudge matchup between PJ Black and Karl Fredericks for War of the Worlds in Chicago. Check it out below.
The Darewolf meets a Young Lion as PJ Black takes on Karl Fredericks in a first-time matchup at the War of the Worlds international television taping in Chicago on May 12.
Black, a veteran from South Africa who has had success around the globe, has been a changed man as of late after initially using questionable tactics and displaying a bad attitude when he first came to ROH. He also has shown that he is still at the top of his game.
He’ll need to be against Fredericks. Training under Japanese legend Katsuyori Shibata at New Japan Pro-Wrestling’s LA Dojo, Fredericks is a well-conditioned athlete with unlimited potential. Although he’s still looking for his first victory in ROH, Fredericks has had an impressive showing every time out and should not be taken lightly.
Can Fredericks break through against The Darewolf? Or will Black tame the Young Lion? Join us live in Chicago to find out!
