ROH WORLD SIX MAN TAG TEAM CHAMPION ADAM PAGE vs. KUSHIDA
 
In 2013, Adam Page was a fresh-faced 22-year old looking to make a mark in professional wrestling. Page was signed after impressing ROH officials in that year’s Top Prospect Tournament. At All-Star Extravaganza in Toronto, Page tested himself by facing an international star making his debut. It was the first time KUSHIDA wrestled in a ROH ring, fresh off a star-making run in the 2013 Best of Super Juniors Tournament, a then-rare venture into singles competition for the former IWGP Jr. Tag Team Champion with then-partner Alex Shelley.
 
Fast forward four years later and both men’s stock is at an all-time high. Page, representing Bullet Club, captured the World Six Man Tag Team Titles in Edinburgh, Scotland with the Young Bucks before going missing and returning just in time to defeat Bully Ray and the Briscoes at Death Before Dishonor on Pay Per View. On that night, Page became the first person in ROH to pin Bully Ray.
 
That same night, KUSHIDA lost his ROH World Television Championship to Kenny King, but the man that holds the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship is in the midst of a career year. With wins over Jay Lethal, Marty Scurll for the Television title, and Jay White, KUSHIDA has given ROH fans a taste of the excitement he created by winning his second Best of Super Juniors Tournament in three years following five win-or-go-home matches.
 
Their bout four years ago highlighted two young stars on the precipice of major impact in ROH but it isn’t the last time these two crossed paths. Page and Scurll interrupted a KUSHIDA Television Title defense recently on ROH television, causing a no decision and then a tag team bout between Scurll and Page versus KUSHIDA and the man who would defeat him Kenny King. With the pressure of championship defenses off his plate, KUSHIDA looks for revenge against the man who interrupted the match and by proxy, caused a rematch that cost him the title in King’s hometown. 
 
Who will win this bout between two of wrestling’s top stars? Will KUSHIDA get his revenge? Join us to find out!
