Two of the hottest free agents in pro wrestling will meet for the first time when Alex Zayne takes on SW3RVE The Realest at Supercard of Honor on Friday, April 1 in suburban Dallas.
It was announced during a Facebook Live chat with ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni and the ROH matchmaker Tuesday night that Zayne was signed to compete at Supercard. After the chat ended, it was revealed that SW3RVE would be Zayne’s opponent. In a previous Facebook Live chat, SW3RVE was frequently mentioned by fans as someone they want to see compete at Supercard.
This will be SW3RVE’s ROH debut. The charismatic star was formerly known as Isaiah “Swerve” Scott in NXT, where he held the NXT North American Title for several months last year. The high-flying Zayne is no stranger to ROH fans. He upset Bandido in his ROH debut in 2020 and won the Honor Rumble at Death Before Dishonor last year to earn a shot at the ROH World Championship.
Ninja Mack, one of the most innovative and exciting wrestlers on the independent scene, has signed to compete at Supercard of Honor on Friday, April 1 in suburban Dallas.
The news was announced during a Facebook Live chat with ROH commentator Ian Riccaboni and the ROH matchmaker Tuesday night. In a previous Facebook Live chat, the matchmaker asked fans which wrestlers they wanted to see at Supercard, and Mack was one of the names most frequently mentioned.
Mack, who is a former Cirque du Soleil performer, has been dazzling wrestling fans with his high-flying style and athleticism over the past year and a half. He has made a name for himself in Game Changer Wrestling competing against the likes of the Briscoes, Tony Deppen, Alex Zayne, Lio Rush and “Speedball” Mike Bailey. Mack also has wrestled for AAA in Mexico.
Joe Hendry wasn’t going to sit around and wait for his phone to ring. He wanted to be booked for Supercard of Honor, so he took matters into his own hands.
Hendry joined Tuesday night’s Facebook Live chat with Ian Riccaboni and the ROH matchmaker and demanded to be booked for the show, which takes place on Friday, April 1 in suburban Dallas. Fans on the chat said they wanted to see Hendry compete, so the ROH matchmaker made it official. After not appearing in an ROH ring in the U.S. for nearly two years due to COVID travel restrictions, the native of Edinburgh, Scotland returned at Final Battle in December in a Four Corner Survival Match for the ROH World Television Title.
Hendry’s tag team partner, Dalton Castle, went into the match as the defending champion. During the match, Hendry showed his true colours by hitting Castle in the back of the head with the title belt. Hendry, who had been an honourable competitor in ROH up to that point, made it clear that he was no longer playing by the rules. By booking himself for Supercard of Honor, that’s obviously still the case.
