ROH issued the following:
Dalton Castle and the Boys went to England with the world on a string. After a successful defense against of the ROH World Six Man Tag Team titles against Colt Cabana and the Tempura Boyz, the champs went into the War of the Worlds UK Tour on a major roll.
On Night One in London, Castle and the Boys successfully defended their championships against Delirious, Jushin Thunder Liger, and Mistico. On Night Two, Castle looked primed to capture the ROH World Television Title. Castle had Hiromu Takahashi pinned and surely would have captured the ROH World TV Title, what would have been his first singles title in ROH, before Adam Page of Bullet Club interfered.
Page and Bullet Club had announced in the previous weeks that they intended to do whatever it took for Marty Scurll to recapture the ROH World Television Title on Night 2 at War of the Worlds UK – Liverpool on iPPV. But Castle saw this as a shot across the bow by Bullet Club.
Following a successful defense of the World Championship later in the evening on iPPV, “The American Nightmare” Cody stated that there was no one left, that he has defeated everyone. That is when the Peacock’s music hit. Castle’s frustrations with Bullet Club, dating back to Cody attacking both he and Christopher Daniels following their World Title bout at Supercard of Honor, led to him confronting Cody and Castle answered the champion’s open challenge! The challenge was left unanswered.
With one night left to go, Cody was guaranteed to leave the tour ROH World Champion. But there were no guarantees for Castle to leave the UK with his title around his waist. In their second defense in three days, Castle and the Boys lost their titles to Page and the ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks, known as the Hung Bucks.
But the victory wasn’t enough for Bullet Club. So offended, or perhaps threatened, by the prospect of Castle challenging for the ROH World Title, Cody viciously attacked Dalton Castle in Edinburgh! In footage that will be shown to fans, Cody made sure he had a camera crew in tow to document this cowardly attack!
Due to the attack, Castle is unable to compete at Saturday’s Saturday Night at Center Stage. Keep it locked in to ROHWrestling.com for the latest updates on Castle’s condition.
