    Friday January 15 – Indianapolis, IN, Indiana State Fairgrounds

    For the first time in over six years, Ring of Honor returned to Indianapolis! In front of a capacity crowd, ROH stars jockeyed for position as the 14th Anniversary Pay Per View airs live from Las Vegas on February 25!

    In Indianapolis, Will Ferrara was game and took the fight to Dalton Castle but “The Party Peacock” and The Boys were just too much! With both stars showing renewed intensity, Castle defeated Ferrara following a Bang A Rang!

    In a triple-threat match, ACH took to the skies and defeated Silas Young and Moose pinning Young following a 450 splash. “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin looked to make quick work of “Tough” Tim Hughes, toying with the youngster early on in the bout. But Hughes surprised the Indianapolis crowd, extending the match before Big Mike defeated him with an Elgin Bomb.

    With both members of reDRagon seeking singles championship opportunities, some had this match against Kazarian and Sabin as a trap match. But with no love lost between these four men, The Two Man Smash Machine showed Indy why they are three-time ROH World Tag Team Champions, defeating Kaz and Sabin following a Chasing the Dragon.

    With mentor BJ Whitmer joining Ian Riccaboni at the commentary table, the undefeated Kelly Klein continued her dominance of the Women of Honor with a win over sugar-powered Solo Darling. With Whitmer still at the commentary table, Adam Page defeated “Outlaw” Ken Phoenix after a Rite of Passage. Following the bout, Whitmer entered the ring and offered his hand to Page who instead instigated a brawl! With officials and security in the ring, Steve Corino emerged from the back to antagonize Whitmer and support Page!

    With Whitmer expelled to the locker room, Bobby Fish joined Riccaboni on commentary to scout the following bout. ROH World Television Champion Roderick Strong was in danger of losing his championship as international superstar Curry Man came within an eyelash of taking the ROH World TV title back to Japan! During the match, Fish routinely taunted Strong, congratulating him as his co-champion and asked Strong when he will accept Fish’s challenge!

    Chris Sabin joined the commentary table to get a better look at the first-time encounter between former best friend and tag team partner Alex Shelley and former ROH World champ Adam Cole! Following interference from Kazarian on Shelley, Cole picked up the victory. Sabin appeared to be conflicted as Kaz cost Shelley the match in the ring!

    And in the Main Event, superkicks flew and Doomsday Devices were assembled as ROH World Tag Team champions War Machine and the Briscoes defeated the All Night Express and the Young Bucks! With no love lost between the four teams, this match quickly degenerated into an all-out brawl! In the event’s wrap-up posted to Ring of Honor social media, all four teams indicated that this is far from over with the Briscoes reminding the tag team champions that War Machine has never beat them!

    Saturday January 16 – Collinsville, IL - The Gateway Center

    On night two, ROH fans sold out the Gateway Center in Collinsville, IL! ROH World Tag Team champions kicked things off with a victory over Kaz and Sabin after War Machine hit Fallout! Early in the match, Kazarian and Sabin struggled to stay on the same page.

    Adam Page was attacked by BJ Whitmer on his way to the ring to face St. Louis area resident “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin. After Elgin offered to face Whitmer instead, with Whitmer declining and retreating to the back, Page put forth a valiant effort but came up short to the Elgin Bomb.

    In what had the makings of one of the greatest upsets in ROH history, Cheeseburger came within millimeters of defeating “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong, answering the Roddy v. The World Challenge! While ‘Burger ultimately came up short, he nearly caught Strong sleeping on the job, taking the Cheesey One lightly!

    In a knockdown, drag-out brawl, The Briscoes defeated Beer City Bruiser and Silas Young following a Jay Driller and a Froggy-bow combo from the eight-time ROH World Tag Team champions who are on the hunt for number nine!

    Will Ferrara told ROHWrestling.com that the DDT he used was scouted from Ultimo Dragon to defeat Kevin Lee Davidson before a first-time ever match-up between Dalton Castle and Delirious tore down the house! With both men deploying nearly indefensible offense, Dalton Castle with The Boys in tow used the Bang A Rang to pick up yet another huge singles victory!

    In a tag-team dream match, “The Greatest Team on God’s Green” reDRagon continued their winning streak, defeating All Night Express following Chasing the Dragon! With ANX among the number one contenders for the ROH World Tag Team championships, reDRagon’s victory surely puts Fish and O’Reilly firmly in their class, as well.

    Adam Cole, on a major roll to start 2016, used a handful of tights out of the sight of senior referee Todd Sinclair to issue a rare loss to Moose! And finally, in our main event, an air traffic controller was on hand to ensure the skies were clear for all of the flying that took place! The IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Tag Team Champions the Young Bucks defeated the dream team of ACH and Alex Shelley following a Meltzer Driver!

    The Winter Warriors tour continues next week in Asheville, NC on Friday January 22 and in Duluth, GA on January 23 featuring very special appearances from Bullet Club! With temperatures dropping inside, the action inside ROH rings is getting hotter than ever! Be sure to check out these events on DVD and VOD and catch ROH when it comes to your town!
