ROH Global Wars: Pittsburgh Results (13th October, 2017)
ROH kick-started the Global Wars tour in tremendous fashion in Buffalo, on the first day of the tour. The ROH and NJPW stars then landed in Pittsburgh for the second show of the tour, last night.
The match card once again featured some top stars from both ROH and NJPW; there were also two title matches that took place on the night.
#1 Hiromu Takahashi vs Mark Briscoe
The show kicked off with an amazing match featuring two of the world’s top stars in Hiromu Takahashi and Mark Briscoe. Hiromu, as usual once again was accompanied to the ring by Daryl, who was sitting at the announcer's table like he does every time.
As the match got started, Mark immediately took a nasty bump as his elbow clearly popped out, which was really hard to look at. The referee then had no other option but to ring the bell and call an end to the match. Hiromu was declared the winner via no-contest.
Result: Hiromu Takahashi def. Mark Briscoe via no-contest
#2 Best Friends vs The Dawgs
This match was originally scheduled to take place between Best Friends and The Addiction. However, before the match started, Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian came down to ringside and said that they would not compete because the crowd does not deserve to see them wrestle. The Dawgs are announced as the replacement for Addiction.
It is always great to see Chuckie T and Trent teaming up with each other, with both men having brilliant chemistry as a team.
However, it was the team of Will Ferrara and Rhett Titus who dominated most of the bout and put a heavy beating on their opponents. The Dawgs looked to secure the win after they tried to use a chain to win the contest but Cheeseburger came down to the ring and prevented that from happening.
The Best Friends then hit the Dude Buster and got the win; Chuckie T, Trent and Cheeseburger then shared a group hug in the middle of the ring.
Result: Best Friends def. The Dawgs
#3 Jay White vs Jay Lethal
This match was filled with “Let’s go Jay” chants, which was really fun. The two men started the match by spending a lot of time on the mat and trying various pinning combinations. However, the bout soon picked up its pace and the action got faster by the minute.
These two put on a superb match and Lethal picked up the win after hitting the Lethal Injection on White.
