The Young Bucks, Cody and Hangman Page Final ROH Appearance?

Last night The Young Bucks, Cody, and Hangman Page seemingly made their final ROH PPV appearance at Final Battle. After the event the group had a send off from the fans in the arena in an off-air moment.

Tonight ROH has their TV tapings at the 2300 Arena in Philadelphia, which could be The Elite’s final appearance with Ring Of Honor.

Cody’s is currently working on a handshake agreement, and his appearance tonight is the last scheduled one for Ring Of Honor. The Young Bucks and Adam Page’s contract expire at the end of this month.

Hangman Page was reportedly sent feelers for a WWE contract this past October, and didn’t refuse the offer, and according to Dave Meltzer needed more time to think. The group has said in the past that they wish to stick together, but obviously that could always change.

Cody and The Young Bucks have ties to a new promotion that filed trademarks recently called All Elite Wrestling, backed by Jacksonville Jaguars co-owner Tony Khan. If the group decides to stick together, they could all be involved in this new venture.

With the success of ALL IN this past September, and a second event most likely to take place in 2019, it will be interesting to see who will be involved.

Katsuyori Shibata Looking To Get Medically Cleared To Return To The Ring

Katsuyori Shibata is looking to get cleared to step into a ring once again.

According to Dave Meltzer in the latest edition of The Wrestling Observer Newsletter, Shibata is looking to get medically cleared following his recent appearance on the final night of the G1 Climax tournament.

“Katsuyori Shibata, he hasn’t been cleared, but he will be attempting to get cleared,” Meltzer stated. “He trains with his students, but the issue in question is whether it can ever be healthy for him to take head shots, and if he were to return as Katsuyori Shibata, can they work around that issue within the New Japan style.”

In 2017, Shibata collapsed backstage after a match with Kazuchika Okada at Sakura Genesis. The injury was caused by Shibata’s use of a headbutt, which he had been doing regularly since the prior year. Following his collapse, he was rushed to hopsital, where he was diagnosed with a subdural hematoma, which required emergency surgery. This caused Shibata to experience paralysis on one half of his body, and many to believe he would never wrestle again.

Following his recovery, Shibata was appointed head coach of New Japan Pro Wrestling’s dojo in Los Angeles, CA.

Shibata made a surprise appearance at the finals of the G1 Climax tournament earlier this month. Although he was not medically cleared to compete, he was involved in an angle with The Bullet Club, where he was beatdown.

Mike Johnson of PWInsider reported that AEW already had plans for PAC to be at the event. The company was able to shift his surprise appearance into a wrestling role due to Moxley not being able to compete.
