ROH issued the following:
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!
Just signed for Steel City Excellence is a no-disqualification tag team match pitting “Punishment” Damien Martinez and BJ Whitmer against War Machine (Hanson and Ray Rowe).
The two previous matches between these hard-hitting teams have been extremely violent, so one can only imagine what lengths they will go to in a match in which anything goes.
The first encounter, which aired on a recent episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling,” ended in a double-disqualification. After the referee called for the bell, Martinez choke-slammed Rowe through two side-by-side tables.
Whitmer’s conduct earned him a 30-day suspension, costing him opportunities on the Survival of the Fittest and Reach for the Sky Tours, while the punishment inflicted on War Machine left a lasting impact on Hanson and Rowe as they went into their first World Tag League Tournament in Japan.
In the rematch at the TV tapings in Atlanta on Jan. 14, Whitmer and Martinez again battled War Machine to a no-contest. This time, the brawl continued in the locker room later that night.
Will a decision finally be rendered in this war between the demonic duo and the rugged former ROH World Tag Team Champions? Will either team survive? Join us in Pittsburgh to find out!
