With Final Battle at near capacity, have no fear as you will also be able to see Ring of Honor's signature event live on pay per view!
Shocking the world by not only winning the prestigious New Japan IWGP Super Junior Tag Team Tournament as well as the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championships, Current Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champions Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly known as reDRagon have compete against The Time Splitters with the Ring of Honor World Tag Team Championship on the line.
Formed in August of 2012, The Time Splitters have been exciting wrestling fans and winning titles across the world over. They are 2x holders of the New Japan Pro Wrestling Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship. After a little over a year of teaming, the exciting duo also won the NJPW Super Junior Tag Tournament.
No strangers to Ring of Honor, Alex Shelley debuted with Ring of Honor in 2003. The trainee of current ROH manager Truth Martini has a storied past in ROH. Some of the landmark moments include forming the much talked about stable Generation Next, as well as creating havoc as a member of Prince Nana’s Embassy. Kushida took ROH by storm with a strong debut in August of 2013. Returning in 2014 Ring of Honor fans got their first taste of the Time Splitters as a team, as they tore down the house with then Ring of Honor World Tag Team Champions, The Young Bucks.
This will be the 3rd meeting between these two teams. The Time Splitters defeated reDRagon in an IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Title match last August in Tokorozawa, Saitama, Japan for New Japan Pro Wrestling. This loss came on the prestigious G1 Climax finale show. Fish & O’Reilly’s debut as a unit in Japan was ruined and this is not something they took lightly. reDRagon didn’t miss a beat after this loss.
They impressed NJPW officials enough to receive an invite to this year’s Super Junior Tag Tournament. Fish & O’Reilly defeated stand out teams Bushi & Mascara Dorada as well as a pair of former ROH World Tag Team Champions in The Forever Hooligans and The Young Bucks in the finals to win the tournament. Not stopping there, they challenged the champions to a match on the closing night of the tour.
Riding a wave of momentum not seen in professional wrestling in a very long time, Fish & O’Reilly avenged that big loss of last summer by defeating Shelley & Kushida to win the IWGP Junior Heavyweight tag team championship.
