Result: Fred Yehi wins via pinfall with a small package

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Both of these guys are big and look like brawlers, but they’re both very proficient technically. There was a lot of nice grappling going on throughout the match with strings of counters and reversals. Later in the match, Yehi started hitting some strikes and power moves while Young attempted some more agile moves. This all led to a very fun finish and what might be the biggest surprise of the tournament so far.


A look at Josh Woods and his combat sports background.

A look at Kenny King and his journey to complete domination.


Match 2
ROH Pure Tournament Round 1 Match
Josh “The Goods” Woods vs Kenny King
(referee: Todd Sinclair)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Josh Woods wins via Referee Decision
Time: 15:00 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Good match. Both men went to the mat early in the match. I enjoyed the focus on grappling early, and it was interesting seeing King get frustrated yet still wanting to outdo Woods. King began to get an advantage pretty early in the match despite having some issues with the rules. Woods started to come back, but as the clock started to become a factor, the pace kind of slowed down. I really would’ve liked to have seen a little more intensity or desperation as the time limit approached, but both wrestlers just seemed to stretch time at the end.


Show Impressions
This was a good show, but not the best of the first round. Fred Yehi made a great debut though, and he was probably the most interesting and entertaining past of this episode.

Match of the Night
Fred Yehi vs Silas Young
I seem to always be pleasantly surprised by Silas Young, and I was very pleasantly surprised by Fred Yehi.
