ROH has issued the following announcement:
Ring of Honor management are happy to announce that they have come to terms with Jay Lethal and he is now officially under ROH contract. The former ROH Pure Champion was a part of Ring of Honor from 2003 â€“ 2006 and in that time frame captured the ROH Pure Title, contended for the ROH Tag Titles, and battled everyone from CM Punk to Samoa Joe to Christopher Daniels.
Returning to the fold at â€œBest in the World 2011â€, Lethal defeated â€œThe Prodigyâ€ Mike Bennett and is now scheduled to challenge for the ROH World TV Title against champion El Generico THIS Saturday night in Chicago Ridge, IL!
â€œJay Lethal is a wrestler that the ROH fans have watched grow up right in front of them.â€ Said ROH Executive Producer Jim Cornette, â€œFrom his days with Special K to his battles over the Pure Title, Jay Lethal became a man in front of the ROH fans and now that heâ€™s back in Ring of Honor, we can all see how much of a fighter he has become. Itâ€™s exciting to have him back here with us, and I for one look forward to seeing him and Generico go at it on SBG TV!â€
