“THE AERIAL ASSASSIN” WILL OSPREAY vs. PUNISHMENT MARTINEZ 
Former ROH World Television Champion Will Ospreay returns to the United States for the first time since the War of the Worlds – North America Tour in May and has a tall task in front of him.
 
Literally.
 
Ospreay, who fell just one match short of becoming the first person ever to win back-to-back Best of Super Juniors Tournaments, travels from the UK to Buffalo to take on the 6’7” Punishment Martinez! The “Messiah of Pain” vanquished rival Jay White in a ruthless Vegas Street Fight where he pulled out all of the stops to ensure total victory.
 
It was Martinez who lured Ospreay into the Global Wars Tour from his native England. After an amazing bout that saw Ospreay pin Jay White at the War of the Worlds Pay Per View event from New York, Punishment viciously attached both long-time rival White and Ospreay. The attack has lingered on the mind of Ospreay and the former ROH World TV Champion has been petitioning for months to get his shot at Martinez. He will get it in Buffalo!
 
“The Aerial Assassin” will have to stick, move, and fly to be able to defeat Martinez, who tested himself earlier this year against international stars like Ospreay’s fellow CHAOS member Hirooki Goto and former IWGP Heavyweight Champion Tetsuya Naito and has been on a major roll as of late. Will Martinez use his strength and explosiveness to pick up a victory in Buffalo or will the most innovative high flyer of his generation deliver a blueprint with a map of how to defeat a monster? Join us to find out!
