Global Wars 2014 is the first of two major shows with New Japan that ROH is producing this month; 

    Date: May 10, 2014
    Arena: Ted Reeve Arena – City: Toronto, Ontario, Canada

    Michael Bennett vs. ACH

    Consistent combat, which gradually warmed up, especially from the interference of Maria Kanellis, who was hit with a Spear by her boyfriend Michael Bennett. It wasn’t the best of openers , but it was satisfying.

    Winner : Michael Bennett
    Rating : 5/10

    Global Wars 2014: Takaaki Watanabe vs. Michael Elgin

    Extremely physical combat. Michael Elgin played at home – Toronto – and duly interacted with the fans, not ignoring them, but not overdoing them either. An interesting duel.

    Winner : Michael Elgin
    Rating : 5.5/10

    The Decade (BJ Whitmer and Jimmy Jacobs)
    vs. reDRagon (Kyle O’Reilly and Bobby Fish)
    vs. The Briscoes (Jay and Mark Briscoe)

    Lively combat, with The Decade having its first moment of brilliance right at the start of the fight. The Briscoes end up winning without surprise.

    Winners : The Briscoes (Jay and Mark Briscoe)
    Rating : 5/10

    Cedric Alexander vs. Roderick Strong

    Cedric Alexander’s speed and passion versus Roderick Strong’s calculation. Interesting contest, a well-constructed common thread and always that feeling of favoritism for Strong, who ended up being surprised.

    Winner : Roderick Strong
    Grade : 6/10

    IWGP Jr. Heavyweight Championships:
    Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson) (c)
    vs. Forever Hooligans (Alex Koslov and Rocky Romero)
    vs. Time Splitters (KUSHIDA and Alex Shelley)

    Didn’t even notice the time passing! Confusion ensued, there were rarely just two men in the ring, everyone shone, and despite some spot fest , it was the best way to use a match like this. Intensity always rising, and the selling of each one was not so affected.

    Winners : Young Bucks (Nick and Matt Jackson)
    Rating : 8/10

    Global Wars 2014: Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jushin Thunder Liger vs. Shinsuke Nakamura and Jado

    Fun tag team match between some of the very best from New Japan. Quality wrestling from start to finish. A rare Jushin Liger & Nakamura interaction.

    Winners : Hiroshi Tanahashi and Jushin Thunder Liger
    Grade : 6/10

    ROH TV Championship:
    Jay Lethal (c) vs. Tommaso Ciampa vs. Matt Taven vs. Silas Young

    Short fight, for what was expected. Tommaso Ciampa got off to an absolutely dominating start, dishing out knee strikes around the ring. Matt Taven and Silas Young had their moments of brilliance, but in the end it was Lethal who won.

    Winner : Jay Lethal
    Grade : 6/10

    Global Wars 2014: The Bullet Club (AJ Styles and Karl Anderson) vs. Kazuchika Okada and Gedo

    Contend that grew in tone as it went along. The AJ Styles that was seen was not exactly Phenomenal but with similarities to those of recent times in TNA, more calculating and less aerial.

    Winners : The Bullet Club (AJ Styles and Karl Anderson)
    Rating : 5/10

    ROH Championship
    Adam Cole (c) vs. Kevin Steen

    Audience totally on Steen’s side, who dominated the opening moments to the delight of the audience. With the fans in ecstasy, Cole was finally able to fight back, starting by focusing on his opponent’s left knee.

    When Steen regained control, he continued the brutality of the first few minutes, landing several Powerbombs at the edge of the ring. It seemed that no matter how much the champion did, Mr. Wrestling always had something more potent to apply. Kevin Steen’s knee was giving way, and his power was decreasing, starting a turning point in the duel, in which Cole managed to stay longer on top. Even very weak, the champion retained his title, as a result of a well applied Superkick .

    Winner : Adam Cole
    Rating : 8/10
