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 tag team match pitting The Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley) against The Tempura Boyz (Sho and Yo).
The Machine Guns clearly have the edge in experience and accomplishments. They’ve been one of the top tag teams in the sport for the past decade and have won titles in the U.S. and Japan, including the IWGP Junior Heavyweight Tag Team Championship.
However, The Tempura Boyz are coming off their biggest win since embarking on their U.S. excursion in ROH in October. At the recent international television taping in Atlanta, the two former New Japan Pro-Wrestling Young Lions defeated Coast 2 Coast (Leon St. Giovanni and Shaheem Ali) and Will Ferrara and Cheeseburger in a Triple Threat Match to earn a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Title, which also will be seen on “Ring of Honor Wrestling.”
This compelling, first-time ever match-up undoubtedly will be fast-paced and hard-hitting. Will the veteran Machine Guns take the up-and-comers to school, or will Sho and Yo pull off the upset?
Join us in Pittsburgh to find out!
