NJPW Champion EVIL Injured, Mandy Leon Vs. Madison Rayne ROH WOH Tournament Match, Manhattan Mayhem

- Above is a first-round match between Mandy Leon and Madison Rayne in the ROH Women of Honor Tournament to crown the division's inaugural champion. It is a 16-woman, single elimination style format. The match was called by Ian Riccaboni, Colt Cabana, and Deonna Purrazzo, who is also wrestling in the tournament. The end came when Rayne missed a dive off the top rope and Leon hit Astral Projection (Pumphandle half nelson driver) to pick up the pinfall victory and move on to the next round.

- NJPW announced one-half of the IWGP Tag Team Champions, EVIL, will miss the 46th Anniversary on March 6 due to a fractured orbital bone. EVIL and SANADA were originally going to take on YOSHI-HASHI and Hirooki Goto, but that has now been changed to SANADA vs. YOSHI-HASHI. The injury came during NJPW's four-day Australian tour.
