The Feud Between Jay Lethal and Silas Young Continues at War of the Worlds UK: Edinburgh

Coming hot off the heels of the sold-out War of the Worlds 2017 Tour in North America, ROH is thrilled to announce, in conjunction with NJPW, CMLL and Revolution Pro Wrestling, the first-ever War of the Worlds UK Tour from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights!

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. The match possibilities are endless, dream teams could be formed, and various championships WILL be contested!

Officials from all four companies have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating and signing matches the fans want to see. 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!

EDINBURGH STREET FIGHT

JAY LETHAL vs. “PRO WRESTLING’S LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG

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.

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.

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.

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. 

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%.

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!

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? Join us to find out!

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! Don’t miss these once in a life-time events when the four best professional wrestling organizations in the world unite on the War of the Worlds UK Tour!
