As of late, Woods has been teaming with Silas Young as “Two Guys, One Tag” on ROH TV. Ahead of Final Battle, Young spoke with Wrestlezone and said he saw a lot of talent in Woods and hopes it leads to a tag title run in 2020.
“This is different in the fact that this is something I approached the Ring Of Honor office, booking people [with] and I said ‘Josh has been here for a while and you really haven’t done much with him. Let me do something with him.’ He’s a super respectable guy. He’s a guy who was a college athlete and was a successful one at that, right out of college he was fortunate to sign with NXT,” Young said, “but with that place having more people and using guys that are more established names coming in, he got lost in the mix and he got his release and he wanted to stick with wrestling.
“He came and he did one of the Ring Of Honor tryouts and he got a contract, he’s not been doing much. I requested to do something with him. I like him, I think he’s got a lot of talent,” Young said, “he just had to have his character shown to the crowd the way he is with everybody else. I knew that it would be good. It seems to me that people are enjoying it.”
