When Dak Draper moved to the Pure division earlier this 12 months, he did so with one aim in thoughts: to develop into ROH Pure Champion.
“The Mile Excessive Magnum” will get his alternative when he challenges “The Octopus” Jonathan Gresham of The Basis for the title on the nineteenth Anniversary pay-per-view on March 26.
Draper is among the cockiest rivals in ROH, however he has backed up his braggadocio. The 2019 Prime Prospect Match winner is 10-1 in one-on-matches in ROH, along with his lone loss coming to ROH World Tv Champion Dragon Lee in February 2020.
In Pure Guidelines matches, Draper is 3-0, together with a win over excellent technical wrestler Fred Yehi on the newest episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”
Nonetheless, as assured as Draper is and nearly as good as he’s been, defeating Gresham in a Pure guidelines match is simpler stated than completed. Gresham has received his final seven Pure guidelines matches, together with profitable defenses of the Pure Title towards Flip Gordon and Joe Keys.
Though the 6-foot-5, 250-pound Draper is a foot taller and 75 kilos heavier than Gresham, the champion has repeatedly proved that being arguably the best technical wrestler within the sport is a good neutralizer.
