A tag team grudge match is on the horizon in Chicago when CMLL legend Okumura teams with PJ Black to take on “Pro Wrestling’s Last Real Man” Silas Young and his protégé Josh “The Goods” Woods!
Silas Young used less-than-scrupulous means to defeat PJ Black in their first encounter and then blew off a rematch in Toronto. When the ROH Board of Directors forced Young to compete against Black in Nashville, it was Black that picked up the victory!
Young blamed his protégé, former college National Champion, All American, and 2017 Top Prospect Tournament Winner, Josh Woods for the loss, citing that Woods did not take advantage of opportunities to interfere behind the referee’s back. That bout came one night after Young led a team of Okumura and Felino to a win against Shinobi Shadow Squad. Following the bout, to, in Young’s words “prove a point”, Young low-blowed both Okumura and Felino.
In Chicago, Okumura looks for revenge and is using the old adage “The enemy of my enemy is my friend” when he teams up with Silas Young’s rival PJ Black to take on Young and Woods, who are teaming for the first time!
Will we see the “rough edge” and “killer instinct” Young has promised to bring out of Woods as his mentor or will Okumura and Black get further revenge? And how will Black, formerly a rule breaker, respond to being in the ring with Young and Okumura, two notorious rule breakers, so soon after changing his own stripes and fighting with honor?
