ROH/NJPW ‘War of the Worlds’ PPV results



Here are your results from tonight’s Ring of Honor / NJPW “War of the Worlds’ PPV out of New York:

Four Corner Survival Match
Kushida vs. Dalton Castle w/ The Boys vs. Bobby Fish vs. Silas Young

Dalton Castle gets the pinfall after hitting the Bang-A-Rang on Bobby Fish.

Frankie Kazarian vs. Hangman Page

Great promos from both men in the pre-match package. This was a grudge match by definition. This one got ugly before the bell even rang. Kazarian attacked Hangman as he finished making his way down the ramp getting in some heavy offense before both men entered allowing Todd Sinclair to begin the match. Probably one of the most disgusting spitting wars in wrestling history took place in the middle of this match that could provide us with some unsavory still shots if one wanted to got that route. In the end, Hangman got a dirty win by grabbing the ropes after Kaz went for a sunset flip in the corner.

Triple Threat (Non Title)
War Machine (IWGP C) vs. Los Ingobernables de Japon (Evil & Sanada) vs. Search & Destroy (Jonathan Greshan & Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley

War Machine comes out in some sick masks that I’ve never seen them wear before. Can’t think of a tag team more on fire than these guys right now.

Raymond Rowe got the pin on Sabin after they hit a powerslam (Hanson hit a topa suicida on the outside competition assuring the 3 count wouldn’t be interrupted) giving War Machine the victory. The move of the match was definitely Rowe hitting a Belly to Belly on both participating members of Search and Destroy.

Will Ospreay vs. Jay White

We got a nice little ‘This is the Future’ package for White and Ospreay before the match. Simply cannot disagree with that statement.

Watch the best episode of 205 Live and times it by 1,000 and you’re still nowhere near how great the action was in this match. The commentary team was actually begging fans to make GIFS of this match. In the end, Ospreay got the pinfall after hitting a beautiful OsCutter off the top rope. Punishment Martinez attacked both men after the match to a chorus of boos. Here are a couple of those GIFS.

ROH Six Man World Championship
Bully Ray & The Briscoes (c) vs. Hirooki Goto & Roppongi Vice

Bully Ray made his entrance through the crowd before announcing that this would be DQ match. With assistance from The Briscoes, Bully put Beretta through a table then hit Romero with the Team 3D before getting the pin. Bully Ray and The Briscoes retain after a match that had everything you’d expect. Fans chanted ECW following the match until Bully Ray grabbed the mic and led them into a ROH chant. Solid company man.

ROH World Television Championship
Marty Scurll (c) vs. Matt Sydal

Marty Scurll’s ring entrance is by far the best in Ring of Honor today and for my money may just be the best in pro wrestling. Chills every single time.

Scurll forces the tap after applying his trademark Crossface ‘Chicken Wing’ finisher to retain the ROH TV title.

ROH World Tag Team Championship
The Young Bucks (c) vs. Tetsuya Naito & Bushi

Bushi out first with a sweet Venom mask. Naito next to a huge pop from the crowd. He kicks the IWGP IC title down the aisle as he makes his walk. He continues to treat any and all gold he procures like a red-headed step child. Naito was the IWGP champ last year during the WOTW tour yet he’s way more over this year. Love seeing him getting the love he deserves in the US.

Multiple near falls for Naito and Bushi before Matt gets sprayed with Bushi’s green mist and super kicks everyone, including Nick and referee Paul Turner, blindly. Bushi eats the pin after the Bucks hit the Meltzer driver for the win.

Hiroshi Tanahashi vs. Adam Cole

This one is advertised as the 7-time IWGP Heavyweight champion, Tanahashi, facing the only 3-time ROH champion in Cole. With Cole’s contract being up as of the end of last month, this could be the final time we see the 27-year-old in a ROH ring. What better way to go out than facing a legend like Tanahashi for your first time. Just in case you were wondering, Tanahashi did in fact air guitar through Cole’s ‘Something For You’ theme song to the end.

Tanahashi scores the victory after hitting the High Fly Flow. Awesome performance by both men. Fans chant “Thank You Cole’ after Tanahashi gives him the ring. The Bucks tease superkicking Cole but instead they all embrace. The lights go out and Kenny Omega appears on the screen.

Just like all fairytales Adam, there has to be a Hero and there has to be a Villain. Marty Scurll appears with Omega. For a second we believe that Omega may be there live but it turns out that was a pre tape. The lights turn back on and Scurll joins The Bucks in the ring. He pops the umbrella to reveal the Bullet Club logo, waves goodbye to Cole obliterates and The Bucks superkick him to seal the deal. Scurll has joined to Bullet Club and he’s wearing the threads to prove it. ‘Being The Elite’ fans know that Adam poisoned Nick, and now he’s paying for it.

‘The Villain’ joins Bullet Club; Adam Cole excommunicated

Bullet Club needed a true ‘Villain’ as their leader. That villain is Marty Scurll. Perfectly executed segment all around. The addition of Omega via satellite was a nice touch. See you in NXT, Adam Cole.

ROH World Championship
Christopher Daniels (c) vs. Jay Lethal vs. Cody

Daniels hit the best moonsault ever on Cody to retain his title via pinfall while Cody had Lethal locked into a figure four.

All in all this was another amazing PPV from the folks over at ROH. Beautiful pacing and no low points to speak of. The highlights of the show were definitely Ospreay versus White and Scurll joining Bullet Club after what was likely Adam Cole’s final match. Now it’s onto the road to ‘Best in the World’ for Ring of Honor and ‘Dominion’ for New Japan.
