Silas Young Vs. Josh Woods Set For Philadelphia

Published

Ring of Honor has issued the following:

SILAS YOUNG FACES JOSH WOODS IN PHILADELPHIA

Silas Young has been boasting that he’s the best technical wrestler in ROH, and he’ll have an opportunity to back up that claim when he takes on Josh Woods at the Best in the World international television taping in Philadelphia on June 29.

In Woods, Young will be facing a former collegiate wrestling champion. In addition to Woods’ outstanding amateur wrestling credentials, he also possesses a background in Brazilian jiu-jitsu. Moreover, Woods is always “DTF” (down to fight).

Since winning the Top Prospect Tournament in 2017, Woods has dominated less-heralded competition and more then held his own against some of the best wrestlers in the sport. He scored a victory over current ROH World Television Champion Shane Taylor last year and pushed Mark Briscoe to the limit earlier this month.

While Young is indeed a skilled technical wrestler, he has been making a mockery of the “pure” style. The two-time former ROH World Champion used underhanded tactics to score two tainted victories over technical wrestling master Jonathan Gresham, and he also has been putting on farcical scientific wrestling exhibitions (while smoking a cigarette, no less).

Will Woods beat some respect into Young? Or will Young deliver a wrestling lesson to the rising young star?

Ring of Honor will hold its final pay-per-view of the year with Final Battle on Friday, December 18.

Headlining the event will be Rush defending the ROH World Championship against Brody King. Rush has held the title since late February of this year. Meanwhile, King continues his ascent after once holding the ROH World Tag Team and Six-Man Tag Team Championship at the same time in 2019.


Additionally, EC3 will make his ROH pay-per-view debut when he goes one-on-one with Jay Briscoe. Following his brief return to Impact, EC3 made his Ring of Honor debut in October. He unsuccessfully teamed with The Briscoes in a six-man tag team match before beating Jay by disqualification at the end of November. Jay has competed at Final Battle events since 2003.

Mike Bennett Discusses His Return To Ring Of Honor

Mike Bennett shocked the world this week when he returned to Ring Of Honor, and he recently discussed his decision to return.

Bennett returned this week to help his former ROH tag team partner, Matt Taven from being attacked by Bateman and Vincent, with the former Kingdom members hugging at the end of the show.


Bennett then sat down with Taven to discuss exactly why he has chosen to come back to Ring Of Honor.

“Coming back, I’ve noticed that I’m a big fan of the sport of professional wrestling. I’m a student, I’m a fan. So I’ve been watching Ring of Honor for as long as I can remember and especially when I left I kept tabs on you. I’ve always kept tabs on you because that’s what friends do, that’s what family does. The one thing that just kept coming back to me, coming back to me, coming back to me was there’s something missing with Matt. There’s something not there, there’s something I feel like I could help with and it wasn’t because you weren’t getting it done in the ring. It wasn’t because you weren’t getting it done in the gym. It wasn’t anything else except for the fact you needed someone to have your back and I made sure I had your back… I don’t take things for granted anymore. When I first started here, a part of me felt like everything should just come to me. Everything should just be given to me. But you realize that, as you go through, that’s not how life works. That’s damn sure not how Ring Of Honor works. Ring Of Honor is just like life. You have to work your ass off to get what you want,” Bennett said. (H/T to Fightful.com for the transcriptions.)

The two men have a huge history together as part of The Kingdom from 2014-2015 and are actually former ROH Tag Team Champions together. The show ended with them embracing, and it seems that fans can expect another run from them in the future.
