IWGP United States title match set for ROH Global Wars: Toronto
Cody Rhodes’ first IWGP United States Heavyweight Championship defense will be taking place at next month’s Global Wars tour.
ROH announced today that Cody will defend the IWGP United States title against Beretta at Global Wars: Toronto on November 11. They’ve been building up a match against each other, which has included Beretta issuing a challenge to Cody at an NJPW Road to Power Struggle show and Cody tweeting out a poll asking if Beretta deserves a shot at the title.
Cody won the IWGP United States Championship by defeating Juice Robinson at NJPW Fighting Spirit Unleashed in Long Beach, California last month.
Kenny King challenging for Jay Lethal’s ROH World Championship will main event the Global Wars event in Toronto. It’s the last stop on the tour, with shows also being held in Lewiston, Maine on November 7, Lowell, Massachusetts on November 8, and Buffalo, New York on November 9.
