Two men that can’t stand one another will lock horns in a LAST MAN STANDING Match on Friday July 8!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>LAST MAN STANDING</div><div><span style="font-size: 13px;">ACH vs. “PRO WRESTLING’S LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG</span></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In Dearborn, MI, ACH and Matt Sydal teamed up to defeat Beer City Bruiser and Silas Young. The victory in front of the sold-out crowd was one of the duo’s biggest to date which made ACH’s statements following the match even more surprising. ACH thanked Sydal for being a mentor but noted that it was time for him to be his own man and to embrace being himself.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Those comments did not sit well with “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Men”.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The curmudgeony ROH star was making his way back to the locker room when he overheard this display of emotion over the sound system. He would later say it made him ill. Just a few weeks prior in West Warwick, Young railed against “cartoon character” wrestlers, naming ACH and Cheeseburger before defeating Delirious that night. It became clear that ACH had gotten under his skin.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>During ACH’s bout against Lio Rush on Ring of Honor television, Young let the world know just how he felt about men who play video games and “watch cartoons”.&nbsp; ACH let Young’s taunts, heard in interviews and commentary on the Road to Best in the World shows, roll off his back and got the better of Young, advocating for fans to be themselves and embrace their passions before defeating Young live on pay-per-view!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But the two men can't stop taunting one another. Both had to be separated in the ROH locker room following their bout and have taken to social media all but petitioning for McGuinness to sign the duo in another bout. A very public challenge was made over Twitter!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p dir="ltr" lang="en"><a href="https://twitter.com/hashtag/BITW?src=hash">#BITW</a> was a fluke <a href="https://twitter.com/GoGoACH">@GoGoACH</a> got lucky, big deal.

These two went toe-to-toe on the WOMEN OF HONOR special now featured on ROH TV.&nbsp; In an extremely athletic, back and forth contest, it seemed like either woman could win at any moment!&nbsp; It was Hania who would eventually score the pinfall, but issues clearly remained unsettled.&nbsp; Now at the very first WOMEN OF HONOR live event, a huge rematch has been set!&nbsp; Mandy Leon vs. Hania the Huntress on July 8th in Baltimore!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">TAELER HENDRIX VS.

But she's facing an opponent who has become more hostile and violent in recent months in Taeler Hendrix.&nbsp; The always fiery Hendrix has unleashed an increasingly vicious side of herself as she continues to compete against the other Women of Honor.&nbsp;&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">What lengths will the "Poison Princess" go to on July 8th in Baltimore against "Crazy" Mary Dobson?</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial; min-height: 15px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">To get your tickets for July 8th in Baltimore, click <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/070816-aftershock-baltimore-md">HERE</a>.</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">matches signed</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">KELLY KLEIN vs CANDICE LERAE</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">TAELER HENDRIX VS.

They got behind the young star from NJPW and he seemed to embrace that support. But that all changed last week at BEST IN THE WORLD, live on pay-per-view!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">There, Kamaitachi took on Kyle O'Reilly in a hard-fought battle that either man could have won. In the end, O'Reilly secured the victory and, in a show of respect for his opponent, asked for the traditional Code of Honor handshake. Shockingly, Kamaitachi refused! Angry and frustrated, he showed a side of himself ROH fans had never seen.&nbsp; Then, during a clash between The Addiction and Motor City Machine Guns, Kamaitachi reappeared to attack Jay White in the audience, giving Daniels and Kazarian the opening to score a win!&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">What are we supposed to make of this dishonorable new alliance between The Addiction and Kamaitachi? There's no doubt we'll learn more in the coming weeks, but a look at Kamaitachi's history in Mexico offers some hints as to his true intentions. Competing in CMLL, first under a mask and then without, Kamaitachi was a notorious "rudo" - a disrespectful, aggressive rule breaker.&nbsp; And we can now confirm that on July 16th in Philadelphia, Kamaitachi takes on someone from his past - STUKA JR.!</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">Stuka Jr. is a longtime competitor in CMLL, particularly known for his tag team achievements. He has also competed in Japan as part of NJPW's Fantistica Mania tours. Stuka Jr. kept a close eye on Kamaitachi the entire time he was in Mexico and knows his tactics well. These two have faced off before as part of multiman tag matches, but in Philadelphia they go one-on-one!&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px; line-height: normal; font-family: Arial;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 13px;

line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">They’re both incredibly talented rising stars, mature beyond their years and obsessed with making it to the top in pro wrestling.</div><div style="font-size: 14px;

The New Zealand native makes his much-anticipated debut in the United States at Ring of Honor’s national television taping on Saturday in Concord, N.C. This is the second installment of a three-part series on the NJPW Young Lion.</i></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">On New Yea r’s Eve 2014, while people around the world were celebrating, Jay White was saying goodbye to his live-in girlfriend in England and boarding a plane for a one-way flight to Japan.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White, who had been wrestling for two years on the independent circuit in England, was bound for the New Japan Pro Wrestling Dojo in Tokyo.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Not only was his pro wrestling education about to become significantly more physically and mentally intense, but he also would have to adjust to a completely new way of life in a foreign land.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“It was massive culture shock,” White said. “The food’s different. Can’t understand anyone. There’s just a lot going on.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">There’s a degree of pageantry associated with pro wrestling, but being an NJPW “young boy” (rookie) is anything but glamorous.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">After arriving at the dojo, where White lives and trains with the other NJPW rookies, he had to get his head shaved. He resides in a room that is a claustrophobic’s nightmare, and his bed is an air mattress on the floor.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“Being a ‘young boy’ is about learning and paying your dues, something that, unfortunately, too many people in this business miss out on these days,” White said. “You've got a lot of jobs to do as well as training, including cleaning the dojo, doing the other wrestlers’ laundry, preparing the food, and basically just being on call at all times, and if you mess up, you know about it, and that usually comes with a few thousand squats. But it’s where you earn respect, as everyone here has been through it themselves, and the majority of the time they had it harder in their day.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Japanese wrestling legend Jushin “Thunder” Liger has been impressed with how White has adapted.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“He’s been great and then some,” Liger said through a translator. “Even though he had a career in the U.K., he started from zero here in NJPW as a Young Lion. He has an iron will to succeed.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">An iron will is exactly what it takes to survive the rigorous training at the dojo.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“The training is completely different to anything I've ever done before. It’s insanely intense, and when you hear how many reps of the exercise you've got to do, it sounds impossible,” said White, who is 6-1 and a lean 198 pounds. “It would start at 10 a.m. and on average would last 3 hours, sometimes longer. It’s usually a mix of squats, press-ups, pull-ups and rope climbs, core work, bridging and strengthening your neck, as well as a lot of cardio-based exercises, followed by wrestling drills.&nbsp;</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“The training methods are pretty extreme, but the idea behind it is that if you're struggling here but you keep going, then you will be able to keep going when you get tired in a match. But if you give up during training, then you'll give up in a match.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White, who is a high-flyer but also is technically sound and well-versed in strikes and submissions, made his debut for NJPW in January 2015 against ROH and NJPW star Alex Shelley. The veteran liked what he saw from White both in the ring and the way he carried himself outside the ring.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">Shelley would regularly watch White’s matches and give him feedback in addition to working with him on various wrestling holds and submission maneuvers.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“He is serious about wrestling, but, man, what a sweetheart of a guy,” Shelley said. “This guy has made some serious sacrifices for wrestling, and I had to respect that.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">White has developed an in-ring rivalry with fellow “young boy” David Finlay, a fourth-generation wrestler who is the son of former WWE and WCW star Fit Finlay.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none">“There is healthy competition between myself and David Finlay, as well as Yohei Komatsu and Sho Tanaka before they left, as we were all always trying to outdo each other, and that's only going to bring the best out of each of us,” White said. “I'd like to think that we performed better than what most people expect from ‘young boys’ and that we've set the bar pretty high for the next group of boys coming through.”</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none"><i>Part 3 of Introducing Jay White will look at his imminent debut in ROH.</i></span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Georgia; min-height: 16px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 16px; line-height: normal; font-family: 'Times New Roman';"><span style="font-kerning: none"><i>To read Part 1, click <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/introducing-jay-white-part-1-breaking"><strong>here</strong></a>.</i></span></div> Tue, 28 Jun 2016 17:14:38 +0000 ROH Wrestling 385051 at http://www.rohwrestling.com Ian Riccaboni's #BITW View From Ringside http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/ian-riccabonis-bitw-view-ringside <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Best in the World Pay Per View </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/ians-view">Ian&#039;s View</a> </div> </div> </div> <div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;"><span style="font-size: 14px;">Shortly after Global Wars, I found out that I would be making the trek to Concord, NC for the Best in the World Pay-Per-View. Over the last two years, I have worn many hats for Ring of Honor: in-arena host, backstage interviewer, and commentator for Future of Honor and Women of Honor. Never in my wildest dreams could I have envisioned what hat I would be wearing for one of ROH’s biggest events of the year.</span></div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Or the horror that I would witness.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">On the surface, Steve Corino and B.J. Whitmer appears to be a situation that has gotten out of hand. Some think it started when Whitmer began to mentor Corino’s son Colby. Ardent fans may think it started months before with a misbegotten shove at HonorCon 2014. But deep in the caverns of their souls, the two men are driven by the same darkness, the same wickedness that is sewn deep in the fiber of their DNA. This is an issue that has existed since their creation.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Before every ROH event, I prepare for the matches I know I will be calling. And just in case, I review the entire card. After all, the first time I did commentary on a regular ROH show was a spur of the moment decision based on Steve Corino’s suspension the previous day and a suggestion by Bobby Cruise. Coming into Concord, I knew I’d be calling Donovan Dijak versus “Cauliflower” Chase Brown. But right before that match was to kick off, ROH Matchmaker Nigel McGuinness informed management he could not, in good conscious, provide commentary for the Ultimate Fight Without Honor.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The night flew by. I was stationed in the back, interviewing the winners of the night’s bouts. I had looked for Steve all day. He wasn’t anywhere to be found. Same for B.J. I saw Nigel leave his seat on our production monitor. I handed over the ROH microphone, took a deep breath, and made my way to the ring with Todd Sinclair.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">When I took my seat next to Kevin Kelly, there was a buzz through the cold calm, followed by a roar. The fans in the arena and around the world saw a video package highlighting the hatred between these two men. For Steve, it was clear that B.J. had drawn out his inner darkness, using Steve’s beautiful wife Jordan and sons Colby and Beck to extract his demons. For B.J., there was a familial magnetism that has drawn him to Steve. To quote B.J. from one of his video messages “I hate you Steve, because I am you.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">I had goosebumps from the minute Steve took off his beanie to reveal his once-signature bleach blonde hair. As loud as the crowd erupted with love for Steve, they were as repulsed by B.J. At that point, I hadn’t considered that it was my first time live on pay-per-view or that I was calling a match that could end either men’s career. I have traveled, eaten, and roomed with both men in my short time in ROH. I did not want to see that happen.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Within the opening 30 seconds of the fight, Steve lost a tooth. For how much emotion drove each man, the veteran stars kept clear enough heads to target the weakest parts of their opponents. Or perhaps each man knew that focusing on Steve’s surgically repaired neck or B.J.’s surgically repaired knee would lead to the quickest route in ending the other’s career.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">There have been so many nights my mentor Kevin Kelly has calmed me. But at Best in the World, I felt like the one that had to play it cool and do my best to balance Kevin. While Kevin usually only has to deal with my nervousness, I saw the weight of the world in Kevin’s eyes as he saw his best friend bloodied and the joy when Steve connected with the beer bottle. But even Kevin has a heart; I saw the disgust and the physical cringe Kevin’s body made when Steve used the rubbing alcohol to sting B.J.’s open wounds, perhaps realizing that, like Steve, B.J., too, has a family.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">We found out who that family was in Concord. In the shadows, both Steve and B.J. had been greeted by what looked like the “Prince of Darkness”. By the end of the night, “The Father” had made his choice. I learned in theology class, Abraham once had to choose between his sons Isaac and Ishmael. And it is a tale that crosses all religions, cultures, and generations that unfolded just a few yards from my face. Kevin Sullivan had chosen B.J. Whitmer as the son of Evil.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">As I tried to compose myself to return to the back and find Nigel to return to the booth, I had an opportunity to interview Sullivan and Whitmer. Sullivan spoke of the Choosen One, the son that would be chosen by The Father to inherit what was once the King’s. So many people believe the “King” moniker of Steve’s is just a shortened form of “King of Old School”. But as we found out, it is taken from the line of Evil, from the King, Curtis Iaukea. The Father is not happy that the Son attempted to usurp his power and claim the throne built by the King, the Father, and the Uncle, Mark Lewin but he is ready to bestow it on his chosen son.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">In Concord, I saw and witnessed Evil.

With new member Cole leading the attack, The Bullet Club proceeded to destroy Lethal and Cabana, as well as security members, cameramen, commentators and a referee.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">At a War of the Worlds Tour event the next night, The Bullet Club added another member in Page and struck again.&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Page, who originally was to be part of a five-man team to oppose The Bullet Club that night, was supposedly taken out by a backstage attack and was subsequently replaced by Cabana.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">However, during the match that pitted Cabana, The Briscoe Brothers and The Motor City Machine Guns against Cole, The Young Bucks and The Guerrillas of Destiny, Page came out to the ring and turned on the men who were supposed to be his partners.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">Page revealed a shockingly sadistic side, as he hit the Rite of Passage on Jay Briscoe on a table outside the ring, and then literally hung The Motor City Machine Guns’ Chris Sabin with a hangman’s noose.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">It’s easy to see why Cabana, Briscoe and Lethal are champing at the bit to get their hands on Cole, Page and Jackson in Baltimore.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">While Cabana, Lethal and Briscoe are an ROH dream team, the one major advantage The Bullet Club trio has over them is unity. The ROH contingent is comprised of three individuals who aren’t friends and are unified only in their hatred for The Bullet Club.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">As ROH World Champion, Lethal has a bull’s-eye on his back, and his two partners are at the top of his list of current challengers.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica; min-height: 17px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Helvetica;">The six-man war in Baltimore will take place just two weeks after Lethal and Briscoe’s showdown in the Biggest Rematch in ROH History at the Best in the World pay-per-view.

line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">Kicking off the night at the Cabarrus Arena in Concord, N.C., was a hard-hitting and surprisingly evenly contested match between Kyle O’Reilly and Kamaitachi.The rising Japanese star nearly pulled off the upset before O’Reilly won by submission with an armbar.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">O’Reilly, who entered the match knowing he has an ROH World Title shot Saturday night, may have been looking past Kamaitachi, who showed a much more aggressive side than ROH fans had previously seen from him.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After the match, O’Reilly extended his hand, but in a despicable show of disrespect, Kamaitachi spit on O’Reilly’s hand and stormed out of the ring.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">The self-proclaimed “Last Real Man in Professional Wrestling,” Silas Young found out that ACH was more man than he bargained for, as ACH scored a convincing victory over Young by hitting Midnight Star.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">In a match filled with mixed emotions, Mark Briscoe (who was sporting a fresh buzz cut) defeated Roderick Strong with a Fisherman Buster suplex to finally earn Strong’s respect.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After the match, Strong, who announced earlier this week that he was leaving ROH for other opportunities, shook Briscoe’s hand and embraced him. As Strong exited the ring, the fans paid tribute to “Mr. ROH” by chanting, “Thank you, Roddy.”</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">In a wild, Tornado Rules six-man match, The Bullet Club’s Adam Cole and The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) beat Moose and War Machine (Raymond Rowe and Hanson).</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After The Young Bucks hit the 5-Star Meltzer Driver on Moose, they gave Cole the privilege of scoring the winning pinfall.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">ROH World Tag Team Champions The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) defeated The Motor City Machine Guns (Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin) to retain their title, thanks to an assist from an unlikely source.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">During the match, Kamaitachi came down to ringside and started a fight with New Japan Pro Wrestling Young Lion Jay White, who was seated in the front row.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">While the referee was distracted by the brawl between Kamaitachi and White on the floor, Daniels took out Shelley with a low blow. Shortly thereafter, The Addiction hit The Best Meltzer Ever on Saban for the win.</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times; min-height: 18px;">&nbsp;</div><div style="font-size: 14px; line-height: normal; font-family: Times;">After the match, Kamaitachi celebrated with The Addiction.
