One of the biggest, baddest stars in ROH recently inserted himself in a Six Man Mayhem match and called his shot against one of the most intriguing prospects in years. But why?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>SHANE TAYLOR vs. 2017 TOP PROSPECT TOURNAMENT WINNER JOSH “THE GOODS” WOODS</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>This past week on Ring of Honor Wrestling, Josh Woods, with a ROH World Television Title shot still in tow from winning the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament, had an opportunity to pick up a win against five international wrestling stars, including the legendary El Terrible and former ROH World Television Champion “The Villain” Marty Scurll.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The tide was turning in the four-time All-American’s direction with Woods fighting off Kazarian and Will Ferrara when Shane Taylor emerged out of nowhere and blindsided Woods with a devastating clothesline. After a splash, Taylor left Woods laying in a heap with a right cross.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Based on the actions of Taylor, Woods has asked the ROH Board of Directors for a bout against the 300+ lbs menace. And it has been signed! In his first match since the Rebellion disbanded, Shane Taylor will go one on with the former national champion and this time, Taylor won’t be able to sneak up on Woods!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Following the ambush in Lowell, Woods is eager to get Taylor in the ring. But even Woods doesn’t know why Taylor attached him in the first place! Could Taylor be jealous of Woods? Or was he looking to prove a point? Taylor will have the size, strength, and experience advantage against Woods in Concord but Woods has proved, like in his match against Kingpin Milonas, that he can chop down larger opponents with precision submission technique like his Deenda Bar! Who will emerge victorious? Join us in Concord to find out!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of ROH LIVE!

And that is the former champion’s own fault. Before an international television taping, Daniels, with Addiction tag team partner Frankie Kazarian by his side, said comments too distasteful and unsavory to air on Ring of Honor Wrestling to a live crowd in Lowell.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But the former champion and his partner, coming off a violent win in a vicious strap match against Adam Page, must regroup in time to travel to the UK because there, they will face two CMLL legends!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since the announcement of the CMLL-NJPW-ROH partnership, the legendary Ultimo Guerrero has become a popular, familiar competitor to ROH fans. The former CMLL World Heavyweight Champion has held titles around the globe and has been engaged in a rivalry with Matt Taven and his Kingdom dating to the second-round of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team title tournament. Guerrero will team with his long-time tag team partner Rey Bucanero, a man who has held the CMLL World Lightweight Championship and is a four-time CMLL World Tag Team Champion!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Can the Addiction get back on the same page, regrouping and clearing their minds ahead of this bout against two CMLL legends or will Guerrero and Bucanero pick up a huge win! It is former ROH vs. CMLL World Tag Team Champions in London!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-london-081817">The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kick off event Thursday, August 17!

And in Edinburgh, a feud looks to come to a head as an Edinburgh Street Fight between two of ROH’s biggest stars has been signed!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>EDINBURGH STREET FIGHT</div><div>JAY LETHAL vs. “PRO WRESTLING’S LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For most ROH stars, the September 2016 stop in Lockport, NY meant an opportunity to win the Honor Rumble and earn a shot at the ROH World Championship. For its winner and runner up, it meant the beginning of a hatred and disdain of one another the two just can’t shake.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>That night in Lockport, “The Franchise” Jay Lethal defeated Silas Young by an eyelash in an instant classic. After their great back and forth bout, Lethal and Young drew one and two in the Honor Rumble and both lasted until the very end, when Young eliminated Lethal to earn a ROH World Title shot.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since then, Young has seen Lethal earn endorsements, commercial appearances, and high profile speaking engagements while Young has arguably one of the best records in Ring of Honor. In front of a sold-out crowd, Young defeated Lethal in his hometown of Milwaukee at ROH Unauthorized. In a tag team bout on Ring of Honor Wrestling, Young picked up a victory over Lethal again. But it was on Pay Per View that Lethal showed why he is the Greatest First Generation Wrestler, defeating Young.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The elation of victory was short-lived. Young’s partner Beer City Bruiser rushed the ring and began damaging Lethal’s ribs which avalanche splashes in the corner into his beer keg. Then, in an unthinkable moment, Beer City Bruiser frog-splashed Lethal through a table on the outside from the top rope, putting Lethal’s immediate future in jeopardy.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Young and Bruiser have been attempting to get under the skin of Lethal with a workplace hazard sign, displaying how long it has been since Lethal has been on Ring of Honor Wrestling television. While the duo from Milwaukee say Lethal is either hurt, afraid, or both, the truth is Lethal valiantly competed in the New Japan United States Title tournament, defeating Adam Page in the first round before coming up short to eventual champion “The Cleaner” Kenny Omega and has been resting to ensure his ribs are 100%.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In a rematch of a bout that sold out Milwaukee’s Turner Hall Ballroom, these two meet once again, this time with the stakes raised. Lethal has proven more than efficient in a relaxed rules environment, having defeated the World Champion earlier in the year in a Bullrope Match for his only loss and sees this as an opportunity to extract revenge while Young sees this as an opportunity to derail the man he calls “The Golden Boy” once and for all!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It is Lethal vs. Young, in an Edinburgh Street Fight, LIVE in Edinburgh! Tickets are moving fast – will Lethal get his revenge or will Young shut down Lethal once and for all? <a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-edinburgh">Join us to find out!</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-edinburgh">The stars of ROH, NJPW, CMLL, and REV PRO will do battle for three nights on the War of the Worlds UK Tour with a special Rev Pro Kick off event </a><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-edinburgh">Thursday</a><a href="http://www.rohwrestling.com/product/war-worlds-uk-edinburgh"> August 17!

Nearly a month later, and the trio has wasted no time lining up title defenses. Castle and the Boys head to the UK to defend the championships against a trio of masked legends in Mistico, Delirious, and Jushin Thunder Liger!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Castle and the Boys have a unique, undeniable chemistry, something that they have used as a weapon in their six-man matches. And an advantage they will carry with them when they meet the trio of masked legends! With Mistico speaking Spanish, Liger Japanese, and Delirious speaking whichever language he speaks, Dalton Castle and the Boys have an immediate leg up in terms of communication. But don’t discount the overwhelming experience that Mistico, Delirious, and Liger bring into the match: Liger, alone, is a master of tag team wrestling with six reigns and 822 days as a IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champion while Mistico is a two-time CMLL World Trios Champion with Mascara Dorado and Valiente!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>This bout has the potential to stand in a unique place on its own, as the veteran presence of the masked stars could take this bout in any direction, as could the antics of Castle and the Boys!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The ROH World Six Man Tag Team Championships are on the line in London!

After a loss in near record time to Hiromu Takahashi, KUSHIDA looked for a change of pace in North America and joined the ROH War of the Worlds Tour. On night one in Toronto, KUSHIDA defeated former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal. Then, in Philadelphia, KUSHIDA pinned ROH World Television Champion Marty Scurll to capture the title!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Immediately following that victory, it appeared the rigors of travel threatened to slow KUSHIDA down. KUSHIDA lost his first three matches in the Best of Super Juniors 2017 Tournament before winning five win-or-go-home matches, including the final against Will Ospreay to capture his second BOSJ win in three years!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KUSHIDA returned to ROH and defeated Scurll in a rematch to retain the championship at Best in the World. This weekend on ROH TV, KUSHIDA defends against Jay White and the winner faces Kenny King in Concord, NC. If KUSHIDA can run the gauntlet, he will face the tour’s wildcard, CMLL’s Titan!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Titan was added as a replacement for the injured Atlantis but now makes his own ROH debut with the ROH World Television Title on the line! Titan will face whomever the champion may be come London and has the biggest opportunity of his career in front of him! At just 26 years old, Titan is already a 10-year veteran of professional wrestling and is poised to pick up championship gold in London.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But if KUSHIDA should get to London still the ROH World Television Champion, there will be no element of surprise. KUSHIDA and Titan have teamed before, specifically during NJPW and CMLL FantasticaMania events! For that reason, Titan may be hoping for a Jay White or Kenny King win!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Two of the best athletes in the world will meet at War of the Worlds UK – London for the FIRST TIME, and the ROH World Television Title on the line!

Four out of the last five champions have been born outside the United States, including the champion as of press time, KUSHIDA.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>While the War of the Worlds UK Tour is just about one month away as of press time, KUSHIDA faces one of the most competitive title divisions in the world if he wants to get to the digital Pay Per View as the World Television Champion.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It is a scenario the champion is used to.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>At a pivotal moment of his 2017, KUSHIDA defeated Jay Lethal in Toronto and then Marty Scurll in Philadelphia to capture the ROH World Television Championship on the World of the Worlds North American Tour. He then won five win or go home matches, including the final of Best of Super Juniors 2017 to win his second tournament in three years. A true worldwide superstar, KUSHIDA’s breakneck international schedule takes him next to the UK to defend the ROH World Television Championship.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Or does it?</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>KUSHIDA’s journey to the UK starts in the form of a singles defense against Jay White on ROH TV. Then, the winner moves on to defend against Kenny King in Concord, NC. And then, whichever star out of those three emerges from Concord as champion will head to London to defend against CMLL star Titan. But there is ample reason to root for KUSHIDA to make it to this Four Corner Survival Match as champion!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For starters, this match began as a singles match that became a triple threat: the bout between Dalton Castle and Scurll had KUSHIDA and the World TV title added. Should KUSHIDA make it as TV Champ, this will be the first time KUSHIDA and Scurll are in the same ring since the Best in the World Pay Per View and the first time KUSHIDA steps in the same ring as Castle since their Four Corner Survival Match at War of the Worlds – NYC! And of course, the man who defeated him and whom he defeated for the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championship, long time rival “Ticking Time Bomb” Hiromu Takahashi has been added to this match.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH and NJPW officials have confirmed that KUSHIDA will appear and compete in Liverpool should he lose the championship to White, King, or Titan along the way but the Time Splitter has shown time and time again he thrives off of international competition.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Who will leave Liverpool ROH World Television Champion?

With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The tour comes in overwhelming response to not only the resoundingly successful ROH Reach for the Sky UK Tour, but also to the rapid sellouts of Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro events around the globe.

In front of a LIVE worldwide audience, they will battle two longtime foes who have been ensnared in a war with Bullet Club, looking to capture their third ROH World Tag Team title!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIP</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE YOUNG BUCKS (MATT &amp; NICK JACKSON) vs. THE ADDICTION (“ALMIGHTY” CHRISTOPHER DANIELS &amp; “HEAVY METAL REBEL” FRANKIE KAZARIAN)</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since 15th Anniversary, there have been no two stars with bigger Bullet Club targets on their backs than “Almighty” Christopher Daniels and “The Heavy Metal Rebel” Frankie Kazarian. Kazarian infiltrated Bullet Club, outsmarting Bullet Club and helped his tag team partner Daniels capture the ROH World Championship.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But since Bullet Club’s Cody brought the championship back into the Bullet Club fold, defeating Daniels at Best in the World, the Addiction has been forced to regroup and reassess. The raucous celebration that followed 15th Anniversary has morphed into cheers for Bullet Club and the Addiction’s comments about the matter were so severe and so harsh, they were withheld from ROH Television.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>But the former two-time ROH World Tag Team Champions (of the World) have an opportunity to get back on track when they challenge old rivals The Young Bucks LIVE on digital Pay Per View in Liverpool!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>It is teams like Bullet Club’s Young Bucks that have made the Addiction reach their breaking point. With decades of experience and dozens of championships, The Addiction feel like they should be shown more appreciation and respect by the fans, especially comparative to Bullet Club. Daniels and Kazarian are 3-1 in two-on-two matches against the Young Bucks and should be considered the favorites heading into this bout.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Or should they? The Young Bucks have been the hottest team in the world since winning Ladder War VI against the Addiction and the Motor City Machine Guns at All-Star Extravaganza. Matt and Nick Jackson have matched the Addiction’s 12 successful defenses and have held the championships longer in their reigns than the Addiction. Should the Young Bucks retain against the Motor City Machine Guns in Concord, NC, they will face the Addiction with more momentum than they ever have as they look to defeat them in 2-on-2 action!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Who will leave Liverpool ROH World Tag Team Champions?

De La Vega joins Riccaboni for the first time on ROH TV after partnering with the lead announcer on Future of Honor Friday and Women of Honor Wednesday bouts over the course of the last eight months. De La Vega may also be known to our Spanish-speaking fans as the Pay Per View partner of Alex Iz for our Spanish broadcasts!</p><p>De La Vega is a mysterious individual who frequently speaks of his wealth and influence. During Future and Women of Honor matches, the Puerta Rican native has made reference to scouting individuals and De La Vega has made a name in independent wrestling managing a group he calls the Beast Cartel. ROHWrestling.com has confirmed that De La Vega has been speaking with ROH stars in the locker room although the content of their conversations remains unknown.</p><p>This huge opportunity comes as Ring of Honor heads into a potentially turbulent summer. There is no doubt that Ring of Honor continues to grow, with international partnerships with New Japan Pro-Wrestling, CMLL, and Rev Pro. But, the flagship championship, the ROH World Title is held by “The American Nightmare” Cody, a free agent!</p><p>As ROH prepares to embark on the ROH War of the Worlds UK Tour, uncertainty surrounds the World Championship. This week on ROH Wrestling, we heard Cody challenge the former champion Christopher Daniels to a 2 out of 3 falls rematch after Daniels made comments too controversial to air on television. We hope to hear from the former champion this week and we will see ROH World Television Champion KUSHIDA defend against Jay White, all on this week’s Ring of Honor Wrestling!</p> Wed, 19 Jul 2017 20:56:24 +0000 Chris Hall 509671 at http://www.rohwrestling.com Deonna Purrazzo and Kelly Klein continue their feud at Queen City Excellence http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/deonna-purrazzo-and-kelly-klein-continue-their-feud-queen-city-excellence <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/qce-kelly">qce-kelly</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to The Cabarrus Arena in Concord, NC for an international TV taping featuring the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action that only Ring of Honor can provide!

But the submission was locked in immediately after what Kelly describes “incidental contact” to the eyes of referee Paul Turner. After 500+ days, it looked as if “The Gatekeeper’s” undefeated streak was in jeopardy.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Kelly tapped, but there was no referee to see it.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Call it what it was or call it a stroke of genius, the world saw “The Virtuosa” make Kelly tap. Whether or not Kelly tapped because she knew there was no referee and that Deonna would break the hold is a discussion for another day. The only thing referee Paul Turner saw when he recovered was a textbook Northern Light’s Suplex. 1-2-3, “Pretty Bad Ass” Kelly Klein defeated Deonna Purrazzo.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Since then, Deonna’s training partner Karen Q became the first to defeat Kelly, doing so by count out. But Kelly has not yet been pinned or submitted. And in the rematch, not only does Deonna want to win, but she wants to make Kelly tap. This time, she hopes, with the referee’s full vision and attention.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In their first one-on-one encounter since their controversial bout in Lakeland, it is “The Virtuosa” versus “The Gatekeeper” in Concord in the biggest Women of Honor rematch in history!
