Wheeler Yuta is one of the most promising young talents in all of AEW and there’s no denying that. Yuta wanted to earn the respect of The Blackpool Combat Club and following his impressive victory at ROH Supercard of Honor, it looks like he’s finally got their stamp of approval.
Yuta squared off against Josh Woods for the latter’s ROH Pure Championship at the Supercard of Honor pay-per-view event, which emanated from Curtis Culwell Center in Dallas, Texas. The challenger showed amazing technical skills as he took on the always amazing Woods.
The match involved lots of back and forth action. At one point during the match, Woods delivered a knee strike right into the temple of Yuta mid air. The challenger came back with multiple elbow strikes to Woods’ collarbone. He then pinned the champion clean 1, 2, 3.
AEW President and CEO Tony Khan later announced that Yuta had signed with the company. Khan looks more than eager to build ROH around young talent and him putting the title on Yuta speaks volumes about his commitment to the growth of the product.
