    6 MAN MAYHEM IN SAN ANTONIO
    For the first time since September's ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA VII, the stars of Ring of Honor return to San Antonio's Shrine Auditorium on Saturday, April 23rd for a night of the best professional wrestling on the planet! Here's what's on tap this Saturday when ROH returns to San Antonio for THE CONQUEST TOUR:

    MAIN EVENT

    6-MAN MAYHEM – ROH WORLD CHAMPIONSHIP PROVING GROUND INSTANT REWARD
    ROH WORLD CHAMPION JAY LETHAL VS. ACH VS. MOOSE VS. RODERICK STRONG VS. JAY BRISCOE VS. KYLE O'REILLY

    There has never been a title holder as dedicated to fulfilling the obligation to the word “World” as Jay Lethal. The Greatest First Generation Wrestler has taken a self-imposed moniker and proven it to be true across both the Atlantic and Pacific Oceans. But after signing to a part of this 6-Man Mayhem match with the Instant Reward of a ROH World Title shot at stake, some are wondering if Lethal has gotten too big for his britches.


    By signing to be a part of this main event match in San Antonio, Lethal has increased the size and the ability to hit the bulls eye that he has on his back as ROH World Champion. You see, this match is one fall: if Lethal scores the winning fall, the match is over. If any of the other five competitors do, an 83.3% likelihood, then the competitor that scores the fall gets an INSTANT REWARD and earns a ROH World Title shot on the spot!


    Lethal has undoubtedly put himself in a dangerous position where any one of five ROH stars could not only force an INSTANT World title match but then defeat him for his championship. But the champ is riding high, rapidly approaching two-full calendar years with a ROH World singles championship around his waist. Will Lethal continue to prove he is the Best Wrestler on the Planet or will opportunity knock for his five challengers? Join us in San Antonio to find out!


    SAN ANTONIO STREET FIGHT

    ADAM PAGE VS. BJ WHITMER

    With eyes on creating a match worthy of carrying the lineage of Texas feuds like Chris Adams versus Gino Hernandez and the Von Erichs versus the Freebirds, Nigel McGuinness has signed a no-holds barred, SAN ANTONIO STREET FIGHT between BJ Whitmer and Adam Page!


    In 2015, Whitmer guided Page to heights he had yet to see in Ring of Honor through deplorable methods. Once the Young Boy of the Decade, Page used 2015 to become a full-fledged member, turning his back on the fans in the process and aligning himself with the dastardly Whitmer.


    But 2016 would be different. In Concord, NC, Steve Corino, suspended from commentary and not yet medically cleared to return as a wrestler, revealed that he could not yet fight but he recruited someone who has been itching to fight his battles for him! Page feels Whitmer has led him down the wrong path with the wrong attitude and is ready to be his own man. On the Winter Warriors tour, Page and Whitmer had to be separated in Indianapolis, while Page was jumped the next night in Collinsville, and then Page got his revenge in Duluth!


    In Nasvhille, Page and Whitmer agreed to meet at 14th Anniversary after the two couldn’t keep their hands off one another prior to a singles match between Cedric Alexander and Page. Whitmer emerged victorious in Las Vegas on Pay Per View but Page, with the fans now firmly behind him, seeks revenge on his self-centered mentor!


    GRUDGE MATCH

    THE ADDICTION (CHRISTOPHER DANIELS & FRANKIE KAZARIAN) VS. THE MOTOR CITY MACHINE GUNS (ALEX SHELLEY & CHRIS SABIN)

    The Addiction and Chris Sabin have made mysterious red masks their signature. But at ALL STAR EXTRAVAGANZA, a man in a red mask COST The Addiction the ROH World Tag Team championships. After months of the newest masked man haunting ROH, this man revealed himself to Sabin and the world in Nashville as Alex Shelley!


    Shelley would find success in singles competition while the trio of Daniels, Kazarian, and Sabin struggled to find solid footing. In fighting and talks of conspiracy were bandied about. Everyone thought they were crazy until Sabin joined Shelley and reunited the Machine Guns at 14TH ANNIVERSARY!


    The Addiction are hot and they want the Machine Guns in two on two action! The two teams couldn’t keep away from each other in Philadelphia in a three-way match involving the Young Bucks and the Addiction ambushed the Guns following their SUPERCARD OF HONOR bout with the Bucks. Now, with both teams in the thick of the deepest tag team division in the world, title aspirations are out the window: for the first time since the Guns reunited, they will take on the Addiction in what can only described as a MUST-SEE GRUDGE MATCH!


    CHEESEBURGER & DELIRIOUS VS. THE YOUNG BUCKS (MATT & NICK JACKSON)


    It may go without saying that the Young Bucks are among the premier tag teams in the world. As former ROH World Tag Team, IWGP Jr. Heavyweight, and NEVER OPENWEIGHT SIX MEN Tag Team champions, there are very few places to poke holes in their resume. But the Bucks will be in for a test in San Antonio when cult icon CHEESEBURGER teams with DELIRIOUS in a tag team battle!


    With his confidence levels at an all time high, ‘Burger has challenged the best singles stars in the world, coming just short of winning the ROH World Television title on a controversial three count in Collinsville, IL and ending on the losing end of a ROH World Championship match at SUPERCARD OF HONOR NIGHT 2 against Jay Lethal. Now, he’s got his sights set on the tag team division and has enlisted his trainer Delirious as the one may he may not be able to understand but certainly someone he can trust!


    BOBBY FISH VS. KENNY KING


    At SUPERCARD OF HONOR Weekend, BOBBY FISH settled a score once and for all with “Mr. ROH” Roderick Strong by defeating the former ROH Triple Crown champion in convincing fashion in a 2 out of 3 Falls match. He now challenges for the ROH World Television Championship against Tomohiro Ishii at GLOBAL WARS! But first he has to contend with the increasingly vicious and bitter Kenny King in San Antonio. This is a first time EVER singles match.

    Bobby Fish might have his sights set on Ishii and GLOBAL WARS, but it would be a mistake to shrug off Kenny King. King knows this is a huge opportunity to make his mark against a top singles contender and he's bringing the fight to San Antonio!


    “THE LAST REAL MAN” SILAS YOUNG VS. MARK BRISCOE


    At FINAL BATTLE 2013, Silas Young put himself on the ROH map by defeating eight-time ROH World Tag Team Champion in a devastating Strap Match that left both men with welts for weeks and scars forever. Both competitors see these marks every day. They will never go away.


    Equipped with new physical and emotional scars resulting from his Fight Without Honor against “The Party Peacock” Dalton Castle, Young looks to get back on track in singles competition in San Antonio. Briscoe, who had an undefeated streak in singles competition that lasted from July 2015 through January 2016, is one half of the number one contenders to the ROH World Tag Team championship and remains in the ROH World Television title hunt, a title he has dreamed of holding.


    With both men jockeying for position toward Tomohiro Ishii’s World Television championship, a win is critical for either man. But does McGuinness know what he has done? With both men absolutely hating each other, and showing it when in opposite ends of tag team matches in January and April, could these two rekindle an outstanding rivalry thought dead? It is the “Sussex County Chicken” and “The Last Real Man” in San Antonio!


    RHETT TITUS VS. WILL FERRARA


    Since Kenny King made his shocking return in San Antonio to reunite the All Night Express, we have all witnessed a rejuvenated, reinvigorated Rhett Titus! ANX ran off an incredible winning streak against teams like the Briscoes, the Addiction, Beer City Bruiser and Silas Young, the House of Truth, and Roppongi Vice before running into ROH World Tag Team champions War Machine at 14TH ANNIVERSARY!


    In San Antonio, Titus will face a familiar foe in Will Ferrara! While the two have never met inside the squared circle in a sanctioned ROH bout, the two are very publicly training partners and travel partners outside the wrestling ring. For Ferrara, he is fighting with a previously unseen vigor and aggression believed to be as a result of his association with Prince Nana! Which of these two friends will make the first move and score a major victory in San Antonio? Join us to find out!
