ROH issued the following:
Silas Young and Beer City Bruiser appeared to be welcoming Bull James to ROH with open arms during a recent ROH TV taping in Philadelphia.
However, James ended up being greeted with closed fists. A two-on-one beatdown ensued, concluding with Bruiser flattening James with a Frog Splash and Young hitting Misery.
Young and Bruiser had invited James to the ring, saying they had found a partner to join them in their pursuit of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship. After the rugged duo initially praised James, they jumped him and said he wasn’t the guy.
Now James is looking to even the score with Young when the two meet on Jan. 14th in Atlanta for “Saturday Night at Center Stage.”
It remains unclear why Young and Bruiser attacked James, but perhaps it goes back to the Honor Rumble in September.
James made his ROH debut that night and had an impressive showing, as he was among the final four competitors. During the match, James tangled with Young, who ended up winning it.
Can James put himself on the map in ROH by scoring a victory over one of the company’s toughest wrestlers, or will Young continue his run of success and make an example of the newcomer?
