Ring of Honor issued the following press release announcing that company stars Silas Young and Josh Woods will clash in a Last Man Standing matchup at the July 11th Best In The World pay per view, the first event ROH will have fans back since the COVID-19 outbreak last year. Details, including an updated match card, can be found below.
After Josh Woods defeated Silas Young in a Pure Rules Match on ROH TV to earn a split in their past two one-on-one meetings, Woods was hoping he and Young could bury the hatchet during the post-match interview and resume their friendship.
Instead, Young buried his foot in his former tag team partner’s groin and challenged him to a Last Man Standing Match at the Best in the World pay-per-view on Sunday, July 11 at Chesapeake Employers Insurance Arena in Baltimore. Woods wasted no time accepting, and the grudge match has been signed.
The history between them began two years ago when Young became Woods’ mentor and they formed a successful tag team, 2 Guys 1 Tag.
Young shockingly turned on his protege — who had found singles success in the Pure division while Young was on hiatus — at the 19th Anniversary pay-per-view this past March. Young chastised Woods for continually defying him and said he’s going to hurt Woods in ways that will make him question his career choice.
Young scored a tainted victory over Woods last month and then bragged that he could defeat him in a Pure Rules match, but Woods prevailed in the bout.
