ROH Pure Title Tournament Week 3
by Allen Rockum
This edition of Ring of Honor television begins with a brand new video intro along with the new theme song added 2 weeks ago.
We begin with Quinn McKay discusses the results from the last two nights and showcases David Finlay defeating Rocky Romero & Matt Sydal defeating Delirious.
We will see David Finlay vs. Jay Lethal & also Jonathan Gresham vs. Matt Sydal in the second round.
The first match for night 3 will be Fred Yehi vs. Silas Young, but first they show promos from each individual.
Fred Yehi discusses in a promo that he is the Savage Weight and how he overcame a bad environment but since a child he was determined to become a professional wrestler where he wrestled collegiate & amateur wrestling. He says he knows that Silas Young is 18 year veteran but he will beat him because he can beat anyone.
Silas Young discusses his life in how he had 5 older brothers and got his ass beat a lot and it made him stronger. He looked up to Nigel McGuinness, Chris Sabin & Jimmy Jacobs and truly wanted to be a part of Ring of Honor. He discusses how he is coming into the match with different strategies that no one will be able to study. From the promo it seems that Silas Young is still a babyface.
On commentary tonight we have Ian Riccaboni & Caprice Coleman.
Will Ferrara, Sumie Sakai & Gary Juster are the judges if the match reaches a 15 Minute Draw.
