Wrestling promotion Ring of Honor has announced a return to Central Florida at the tail end of this summer with a live pay-per-view taping scheduled for Lakeland's RP Funding Center.

ROH will hold their annual Death Before Dishonor card at RP Funding on Sunday, Sept. 12. This will be the first time the wrestling fed, known for its emphasis athleticism and high-flying intensity, have been in Lakeland since 2017's "Supercard of Honor."

There are no matches confirmed so far for the event, but the ROH website recently trumpeted that "history will be made that night, as ROH crowns a new women’s world champion in the Quest for Gold tournament final."

And we'd imagine ROH mainstay Jay Lethal — a Central Florida resident recently shouted out by Mayhem on Mills champion Troy Hollywood for his tutelage and training — will be present in some capacity.

Tickets will go on sale Friday, July 23, at 9:30 am. Ticket prices run $34-$56 and can be purchased at the RP Funding Center Box Office, by phone toll-free 888-397-0100, or online at Dates and ticket prices are subject to change without notice.
