Ring of Honor held their fifth annual “Manhattan Mayhem” event on Aug. 17, and since the television shows are pre-recorded a month in advance, not only are the winners spoilers, but the actual matches are spoilers too. Here is a look at the “ROH Manhattan Mayhem V” spoilers.
In some non-spoiler matches, Silas Young beat Adam Page, C&C Wrestle Factory beat Adrenaline Rush in a scramble tag team match, TV champ Matt Taven beat Mike Mondo in a Proving Ground match, and The Forever Hooligans beat The Young Bucks in another tag team match.
The first major spoiler came next.
QT Marshall and RD Evans came out to the ring to complain about not being booked. However, Prince Nana showed up and exacted some more revenge on Evans for splitting up The Embassy. Nana is now a “talent scout” for Ring of Honor and his first two finds came out next, dressed in suits with clown masks. It turned out to be Homicide and Eddie Kingston.
Homicide and Eddie Kingston beat QT Marshall and RD Evans and then broke Evans finger after the match.
Next up was three world title tournament matches, and since the first matches haven’t even been televised yet, the combatants are spoilers in and of themselves.
In these matches, Kevin Steen beat Roddy Strong, Tommaso Ciampa beat Michael Bennett and Michael Elgin beat Machine Gun Karl Anderson. The semi-final matches in the world title tournament are now Kevin Steen vs. Michael Elgin and Tommaso Ciampa vs. Adam Cole.
Finally, in the main event, new world tag team champions The American Wolves lost their titles to reDRagon, just one week after winning them. That means the titles have changed hands three times in three weeks and reDRagon are champions once again.
