They immediately made a statement by sneak-attacking and laying out the Machine Guns and Donovan Dijak and then defeating the three fan favorites in a six-man tag match at Final Battle.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The militant trio also has targeted White, a rising young star whom The Rebellion feels has been given opportunities in ROH while they were overlooked.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>White is undefeated in singles competition since coming to ROH from New Japan Pro-Wrestling in June and has victories over the likes of Christopher Daniels and Dijak. He also took two-time former ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe to a time-limit draw.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>His partners in Columbus -- Sabin and Shelley -- are one of the most successful tag teams in the sport over the past decade.

War Machine, who won the ROH World Tag Team Title in December 2015 and successfully defended it for nearly five months, haven’t had an ROH World Tag Team Title shot since competing in a gauntlet match in August.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Hanson and Rowe had a strong showing in the World Tag League tournament in Japan recently, and the two powerhouses believe they are at the top of their game. With War Machine’s distinct size advantage and hard-hitting style, it certainly appears that they present a matchup problem for the Bucks.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The high-flying and controversial Bucks can never be underestimated, though, regardless of their opponents’ size and strength advantages. They staked their claim as the best tag team in ROH history by defeating eight-time former ROH World Tag Team Champions The Briscoes (Jay and Mark) at Final Battle last month.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>As the Bucks celebrated their victory in the ring, however, Broken Matt Hardy appeared on the video screen and issued a challenge to “The Bucks of Youth.” The Bucks have responded by saying that they will fight Matt and “Brother Nero” Jeff Hardy anytime, anywhere.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Will the Bucks have the Broken Hardys on their minds when they put their titles on the line against War Machine in Columbus?

The brothers used death-defying high flying and athleticism to become stars around the globe. Some even say their successes have laid the ground work for the Bucks to be able to have the success they have.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Appearing via satellite at Final Battle, Matt Hardy declared that the Hardys have been “mandated to prove they are the greatest tag team in all of time and all of space”, issuing an official challenge to “the Bucks of Youth”. In their mission to render the Bucks obsolete, the Hardys have promised to DELETE the Young Bucks!&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>After a recent appearance by Vanguard-1 on Ring of Honor television, the ROH World Tag Team Champions the Young Bucks have officially signed to face the Hardys at the BIGGEST Supercard of Honor ever!

The six were given a bout to air on ROH television to determine the number one contender and Dijak emerged victorious.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Dijak heads to Pittsburgh with an opportunity to capture his first-ever ROH championship but standing across the ring will be a finger-snapping, chicken-winger that has systematically defeated every international star ROH has put in front of him.

Fans will be able to choose among 10 ROH stars and set the three-man team who could become new World Six Man Champs!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>In addition, the ROH Executive Board has been working tirelessly to sign first-time bouts and grudge matches for The Experience. Our return to Columbus last year proved Buckeye State fans are hungry for the Best Wrestling on the Planet and we are committed to delivering a pro wrestling experience unlike any other!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The first match signed for The Experience is a first-time dream match nearly eight months in the making.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>“THE AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. DALTON CASTLE</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Before Final Battle, before Bullet Club, and before WrestleKingdom, “The American Nightmare” Cody was the hottest free agent in pro wrestling. Cody proved in less than 140 characters the old axiom true - a picture is worth 1,000 words. This list, a list speculated to be one of potential opponents and partners, was worth more.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Near the top of the list was Dalton Castle.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>A dream match in its own right, Cody and Castle’s bout at The Experience has elevated significance: Cody has recently teamed with ROH World Champion Adam Cole in a bout against Bobby Fish and Jay Lethal that will air on Ring of Honor Television. With Castle scheduled to face the ROH World Champion at Supercard of Honor XI, Cody now stands as a potential barrier that can soften Castle for his Bullet Club mate ROH World Champion Cole ahead of their bout.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>For the very first time, two of the best stars of the wrestling world will collide at The Experience in Columbus! There is nothing like seeing the hard-hitting, fast-paced, in-your-face action of Ring of Honor – j<a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-columbus-ohio-02-12-2017/event/0500516889CE1203?artistid=883536&amp;majorcatid=10004&amp;minorcatid=27">oin us at Express Live! for The Experience and this first-time dream match!</a></div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Live Event: The Experience</div><div>Local Time: Sunday, Feb 12, 2017 07:00pm EST</div><div>Express Live!</div><div>405 Neil Ave</div><div>Columbus, Ohio 43215</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ALREADY SIGNED:</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>MAIN EVENT</div><div>ROH WORLD SIX MAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE KINGDOM (MATT TAVEN, VINNY MARSEGLIA, &amp; TK O’RYAN) vs. THREE ROH STARS SELECTED BY ROH FANS!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>FIRST-TIME EVER</div><div>“AMERICAN NIGHTMARE” CODY vs. DALTON CASTLE</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>SIGNED TO APPEAR…</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS THE YOUNG BUCKS</div><div>JAY &amp; MARK BRISCOE</div><div>MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS</div><div>WAR MACHINE</div><div>THE TEMPURA BOYZ</div><div>THE REBELLION (CAPRICE COLEMAN, KENNY KING, &amp; RHETT TITUS)</div><div>JAY WHITE</div><div>KELLY KLEIN&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div> Wed, 18 Jan 2017 20:45:01 +0000 Chris Hall 447966 at http://www.rohwrestling.com STAR-STUDDED EIGHT-MAN TAG MATCH SIGNED FOR PITTSBURGH http://www.rohwrestling.com/news/star-studded-eight-man-tag-match-signed-pittsburgh <div class="field field-sub-title"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Bullet Club’s Cole, Cody and Young Bucks face Lethal, Fish and Briscoes </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-news-photo"> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/media/photos/sce-8man-news">sce-8man-news</a> </div> </div> </div> <div>The Best Wrestling on the Planet returns to Pittsburgh for Steel City Excellence on Saturday, Feb. 11. The international TV taping will feature all of the top stars in ROH as well as the start of the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament!</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Just signed for Steel City Excellence is a huge eight-man tag team match pitting Bullet Club’s contingent of ROH World Champion Adam Cole, ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Cody against Jay Lethal, Bobby Fish and The Briscoes (Jay and Mark).</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Bullet Club’s dominance took a hit last month when Cole lost the ROH World Title, but it proved to be just a momentary setback. Cody shocked the wrestling word by joining the faction shortly thereafter, and on Jan. 4 at Wrestle Kingdom 11 in the Tokyo Dome, Cole regained the championship from Kyle O’Reilly to become the first three-time ROH World Champion in history.&nbsp;</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>With two major championships in its possession and a decorated second-generation star now in the fold, Bullet Club appears to be stronger than ever.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>The combination of Cole, Cody and The Young Bucks would be prohibitive favorites against most teams, but their opponents in Pittsburgh are every bit as accomplished. Lethal, Fish and The Briscoes have three ROH World Titles, three ROH World Television Titles and 11 ROH World Tag Team Titles between them.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Not only is this a star-studded clash, but it’s also a grudge match. Lethal has a score to settle with Cody, who used a low blow to defeat him in Cody’s ROH debut at Final Battle on Dec. 2, and The Young Bucks and Briscoes have had a heated rivalry for years over who is the best tag team in the sport.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div>Meanwhile, Fish is coming off the best year of his career in singles competition, and the former ROH World Television Champion and three-time co-holder of the ROH World Tag Team Title has his sights set on the ROH World Title. He’ll have an opportunity to show Cole just how capable of a contender he is.</div><div>&nbsp;</div><div><a href="http://www.ticketmaster.com/ring-of-honor-wrestling-pittsburgh-pennsylvania-02-11-2017/event/1600516884770CF5?artistid=883536&amp;majorcatid=10004&amp;minorcatid=27">Who will win this battle for supremacy in ROH?
