Live At The Hammerstein Ballroom In New York City

* There were two dark matches prior to the pay-per-view starting. In match #1, The Kingdom defeated The Tempura Boyz thanks to help from TK O’Ryan, who nailed Yohei with his crutch and it led to Matt Taven pinning him…. The second dark match saw The Rebellion defeat Cheeseburger, Will Ferrara & Gedo when Shane Taylor flattened Cheeseburger with a top rope splash.

* Before the PPV started, Officials from New Japan Pro Wrestling and Ring of Honor came into the ring for an announcement. They unveiled the new IWGP United States Title. With a round robin styled tournament taking place on July 1st and 2nd at the G1 in Long Beach, to crown the inaugural champion. With the New Japan brand expanding into America, this title makes a lot of sense. Although it seems like every company has 30 titles each now.

Silas Young made his way to the ring smoking a cigarette. Kushida got a great pop based on his reputation but it didn’t hurt that he had a Yankees jersey on in New York. Dalton Castle may have received the loudest reaction of them all during his entrance……. Silas Young gets on the mic prior to the match. He rips on the fans who are chanting for Dalton Castle. Silas Young wants to address Kushida which prompts the crowd to chant his name. Silas calls out Kushida for pandering with the Yankees jersey. He attacks Kushida, rips off the jersey and steps on it. Silas is eliminated from the equation for now by the babyface trio. The sportsmanship between the three goes out the window as they all try to pin each other.

And @KUSHIDA_0904 shows us how it’s done! #ROHWOTW

The pace of the match picks up significantly inside and outside the ring. Dalton does his fake out dive and while he is strutting, Silas Young sneaks up from behind and rakes him in the back. Kushida follows suit and does the same thing to Silas. Kushida then connects with a cartwheel drop kick. Kushida then ends up somersaulting off the top rope and onto his 3 competitors. Moments later, Kushida locks in a cross arm breaker on Castle, Fish tries to break it up but fails. Silas doesn’t as he breaks it up with his top rope plunge move. Silas and Fish then go at it. Bobby tries to clamp on his leg lock but Silas breaks free with a martial arts kick. Bobby Fish then starts striking all 3 men with a variation of kicks. He hits an exploder suplex on Silas and throws him into Kushida. Dalton attempts his Bang-A-Rang finish on Fish but Bobby counters it into a submission. Kushida leaps off the top rope and breaks up the hold. He then locks in the hoverboard lock on Bobby Fish but Silas intervenes. Silas goes for Misery but Kushida hits a great counter and spikes his head. The action heads to the apron and each men takes turns tripping the other up. After this frantic pace, Dalton Castle catches Fish and hits his bang a rang finisher to secure the victory…. Good opener.

Colt Cabana on commentary asks if there is going to be a superkick counter tonight. Kevin Kelly amusingly responds with “that guy left the territory”…… LIJ’s Sanada disrespects Gresham early on because of his short stature. Jonathan earns his respect early with a variety of aerial moves. Evil gets involved, he trips up Gresham and rams him into the barricade at ringside. Sanada then wraps up Gresham and Sabin into pretzels. With their legs and hands tied up, Sanada runs full speed and delivers a double basement dropkick to the both of them. Evil is in, Gresham is able to evade him and tag in his partner. Sabin takes down Evil and Sanada and gets booed from the new York crowd. He hits a double DDT, plays to the crowd and gets a few cheers from the same people who booed him…. After EVIL escapes a double team from Search and Destroy. He tags in Hanson, who comes into the ring on fire. He takes out both Gresham and Sabin and then does his running war cry splashes into the corner on Los Ingobernables. With LIJ laying in the corner, Rowe picks up Hanson and slams him into the both of them.

The Octopus @TheJonGresham clears the ring here in Manhattan!

War Machine then attempts to win the match with fallout on Gresham but Sabin blocks it. Sabin and Gresham then hit tandem moves on Rowe and Hanson to get the brief advantage. In a really cool spot, Rowe fires up against them by blocking forearms with his head. He then double suplexes Search and Destroy. LIJ is back in business and they nearly decapitate Hanson. Sanada distracts referee Tiger Hittori. While EVIL sandwiches a chair on Hanson’s neck and then nails with another steel chair. The pace of the match picks up considerably with all 6 men involved. The action is fast and furious, War Machine hits a pop up power slam on Chris Sabin. Row covers and pins him while Hanson flies to the outside onto LIJ to block them from entering the ring…. Nice showing by all three teams. War Machine is absolutely on fire right now.

Its going to be an international incident in this match up! On deck it’s @WillOspreay against @JayWhiteNZ #wotW #ROH #NJPW

— ROH Wrestling (@ringofhonor) May 13, 2017

The code of honor is adhered to here by both men. White and Ospreay go from 0 to 100 immediately. Ospreay hits a twisting corkscrew headscissors. Will then attempts a shooting star press off the apron but White avoids only to get kicked in the head. When Ospreay attempts a suicide dive on White, Jay catches him in mid-air and slams into the barricade…. That was pretty brutal and Ospreay has a huge welt on his back as a result of it….

The action slows down a bit with Jay White now in control. He grounds Ospreay and locks in a bridging Muta lock. After a couple minutes, Ospreay rallies by going to the air. It gives him time to recover. Ospreay then connects with a springboard clothesline from halfway across the ring. Ospreay tries to go on an offensive flurry but Jay White cuts him down with a stiff forearm. Ospreay then gets suplexed into the bottom turnbuckle. Both men now go tit for tat delivering European uppercuts. Ospreay tries a hurricanrana but gets caught and power bombed for a near fall. Jay White starts showing a mean side and begins taunting Will Ospreay. Both men fire up and trade blows. White wins the exchange with an impressive display of strikes. White continues to be aggressive, Ospreay fires up with a quick flurry but gets hit with a flatliner. Both men then trade multiple suplexes. Ospreay fires off the ropes and turns Jay White inside-out with a Spanish fly. Pretty stuff….. Ospreay recovers first and heads to the top for a 450 but lands on his feet. Ospreay then hits the code red on White for a near fall.

Can you even count the number of @WillOspreay strikes?

— ROH Wrestling (@ringofhonor) May 13, 2017

Ospreay attempts to leap onto White on the outside and gets caught. He gets hit with one of the nastiest brainbusters ever, on the ring apron. White has a lot of momentum on his side. He hits a cobra clutch suplex on Ospreay but delays afterwards. It gives Ospreay time to fire up and put on an aerial flurry of moves. White catches him again, grounds Ospreay and starts elbowing him repeatedly, trying to get a ref stoppage. White then hits a double underhook front face suplex on Ospreay for an extremely close near fall. The audience applauds and both men even get some streamer treatment, with the match not even over yet…

Both men battle to the top rope. Ospreay kicks his way out of White’s clutches. He then hits a majestic springboard moonsault on White to the outside. Ospreay then throws White into the ring quickly and then connects with a springboard cutter off the ropes and secures the victory….. What a sick match. Great stuff.

Will Ospreay defeats Jay White by pinfall


Jay White and Will Ospreay shake hands from their knees after the match. The fans loudly chant “That was Awesome”. It actually was….. Out of nowhere comes Punishment Martinez. He attacks both Ospreay and White. Martinez choke slams them both and lays them out. Before the next match, The commentators proudly boast that this show is trending # 1 worldwide.

The Aerial Assassin @WillOspreay has some strong words for @ROHPunishment post victory over the worthy @JayWhiteNZ #ROHWotW #PPV #backstage
