Did You Know?
It had been announced a few weeks before the event that each of the three groups (WARRIORS, World-1 and KAMIKAZE USA) would get to "draft" an American representative. CIMA (Nobuhiko Oshima
) introduced Ricochet (Trevor Mann
) as the newest member of WARRIORS, and BxB Hulk (Terumasa Ishihara
) named Homicide (Nelson Erazo
) as the newest member of World-1. CIMA asked Chuck Taylor (Dustin Howard
) if he wanted to join WARRIORS, with Taylor saying that he was out of the draft. Johnny Gargano
pleaded with CIMA to pick him in the draft. Near the end of the night, Gargano begged CIMA again. Before CIMA could answer, Gargano Superkicked him. Gargano, Taylor and Rich Swann (Richard Swann
) announced that they had formed their own group called Ronin. See more
