AJ Styles battles Rey Mysterio for the first time; John Morrison vs. Carlito

Rey Mysterio

These are 5 Star Wrestling results from Sheffield, England, submitted by Keith Harris

- Crowd was a mix of hardcore fans and families.

- Joe Coffey pinned Zack Sabre Jr with a discus clothesline in a good opener

- Fun bantering segment with John Morrison and Carlito to set up the main event. Some humorous self deprecating wit with Carlito dead panning "What? I was on TV six years ago."

- Lou King Sharp & Martin Kirby beat Kid Fite & Timm Wylie in a fairly amusing comedy match. Dated cat fight spot by female seconds before the finishing stretch.

- AJ Styles pinned Rey Mysterio with the Styles Clash after pulling the referee to stop Mysterio diving on him. Fine house show level match, but didn't live up to the dream. 

- Will Ospreay beats Jimmy Havoc & Marty Scurll in a triple threat match. Really well worked. Match of the night.

- ROH Champion Jay Lethal pinned PJ Black with the Lethal Injection in a slow starter, but built to an enjoyable finishing stretch.

- Grado & Colt Cabana pinned Big Damo & Nick "Magnus" Aldis after Grado pinned Damo clean in a comedy tag match. Grado came off as a star coming out to the Madonna "Like A Prayer" theme.

-5 Star Champion John Morrison pinned Carlito after the latter accidentally spat apple in the ref's eyes and the former used a low blow. So-so main event. Early in the match, Carlito sold for Morrison using a foam finger as a foreign object. They worked pretty hard, but they couldn't follow Styles vs. Rey.
