ROH reviews the end of Champions VS All-Stars at Center Stage.

It was Jeff Cobb and Rush together against Shane Taylor, and they finished the ROH World Television Champion off to win the whole match. However, Rush would not show the respect Cobb was showing him. Rush wants to be the best with no room for the rest. But will there come a time when Cobb will make him show respect?


It’s Death Before Dishonor Weekend!

Ian Riccaboni and Quinn McKay are excited for ROH’s return to Las Vegas, and the entire event being up on Honor Club already. But tonight, ROH TV will show Honor For All’s huge Defy or Deny match, and we will see if Matt Taven made history of crossing off even more challengers from the list before facing Rushfor the ROH World Championship. Before all that, thought, ROH travels back in time to Center Stage for a Six Man Tag match, Shinobi Shadow Squad against the Last Real Man and some CMLL legends.


Six Man Tag: Shinobi Shadow Squad VS Silas Young, Felino & Okumura!

Cheeseburger, Eli Isom and Ryan Nova continue to fight their way up the Six Man Tag Division, but can they get through such a formidable veteran team? Honor For All is available in full on Honor Club, but ROH TV jumps into the meat of the action.

Nova has Silas alone in the ring, but Silas CHOPS! Nova forearms but Silas eggs him on. Nova CHOPS but Silas knees low. Silas whips but Nova reverses, only to be put on the apron. Nova bumps Silas off the buckles then kicks him away. Nova climbs but Silas uppercuts him down! Silas climbs up to join Nova but Nova resists. Okumura helps Silas but Burger and Isom go after the veterans! TOWER OF DOOM! Double Powerbomb Superplex! Nova does end up taking the worst of it, and then Felino splashes in outta nowhere! TRIPLE cover, TWO!! Somehow, everyone is clean, so Felino goes after Nova with clubbing forearms. He officially tags in while Josh Woods takes some notes ringside. Felino clobbers away, but Nova goes up to victory roll! Okumura breaks it just in time. Isom and Burger run in, but Silas and Okumura throw them out. Felino CHOPS Nova in the corner, then whips him corner to corner for forearms. Another whip but Nova reverses. Felino goes up, but Nova hurries up to hit back! Nova climbs up, but his steiner is made into a SUPER BOMB! Cover, Silas and team win!

Winners: Young, Felino & Okumura, Felino pinning

The old boys get it done and Woods joins them in the ring to celebrate. Silas tells Woods that while he’s “one of the biggest pains in the ass,” he has a lot of potential. Silas sees Woods is smart enough to listen to a veteran like Silas, which is why Woods was here to watch the bona fide legends of CMLL. Has Woods been learning his lessons? Woods low blows Okumura, then exploders Felino! That’s a yes.


Woods was on the phone later that night.

“You should’ve seen it!” He was throwing dudes all over the place and Silas was so proud. Hard work pays off. Silas finds him later and is happy to see Woods is in a good mood. Woods’ notebook is nice, too. What notes has he been taking, though? Silas opens it up and sees… Doodles. These are notes? No, no, these are the notes. Ignore the other stuff. Silas burns his cigarette out on the “notes” and says Woods needs a new notebook. Will Woods make Silas proud with both brains and brawn?


Soldiers of Savagery VS ???

Moses Maddox and Jasper Kaun are back, and they show no mercy as they go right at their opponents! Kaun throws Stevens, the man in the singlet, right into a post while Moses whips and pops Sobrenaros, the man in pant,s up for a flapjack! Then Moses brings Sobrenaros up for Kaun to run over with an elbow! SOS goes after Stevens now, for the Promised Land double choke slam! Then they drag Sobrenaros up, Promised Land ONTO Stevens! Double stack cover, SOS wins!

Winners: Soldiers of Savagery, Kaun pinning

A dominant and fast victory, SOS rolls on. Will they rise up in the ranks to one day be dominant champions?


ROH throws it back to Quinn and Ian.

Team IQ knows ROH was built on tag team wrestling, and the Tag Team Division is building stronger again. Glory By Honor is on the way on October 12th, and the Final Battle Contender’s Tournament rolls through it. Who will achieve glory by victory and head for the ROH World Championship?


Quinn McKay interviews Jeff Cobb.

The Hawaiian Juggernaut prepares for Honor For All’s Defy or Deny. What is his plan going in against three big names like Taven, King and Lethal? To win. Cobb wants to be the last man standing, because then he gets a second shot at Matt Taven. Taven beat Cobb at Best in the World, so Cobb wants, Cobb needs that second chance to redeem himself. Three up, three down, but will Cobb be the one left at the end?


Master & Machine VS The Tate Twins!

Griff Garrison & Marcus Kross once again combine forces once again, but are against a dynamic duo that has been together forever. Now that they are not Dalton Castle’s Boys, will Brandon and Brent fly higher than ever before? Or will they be brought down to earth the moment they’ve flown out of the nest?

The teams keep the Code of Honor to show this match-up is respectful. Kross starts against Brent, who wears a glove on his left hand. They tie up and Brent headlocks to a takeover. Kross headscissors but Brent pops out. Kross headlocks but Brent rolls him off. Brent CHOPS Kross, then puts him in a corner. Brent wrenches, whips, but Griff stops Kross from hitting buckles. Kross comes back but Brent dodges. Kross dodges, but the two stand off between the Turtle Destruction Wave and Fist of Justice! They back off, but Kross attacks as the Tate Twins try to unite their twin powers. Brent dodges and waistlocks, to then headlock. Kross back suplexes but Brent lands on his feet, only for Kross to mule kick, front kick and whip. Brent dodges the clothesline and Brandon tags in. Brent stops Kross in his tracks with the Fist of Justice, then spins him around for Brandon’s springboard crossbody! Cover, ONE, but Brandon keeps on Kross with a wrench. Tag to Brent, and the twins double whip Kross. They double hip toss and then roll Kross to a double Japanese arm-drag! Brent covers, TWO! The Tate Twins are rolling as ROH goes to break.

ROH returns as Brandon runs in at Kross in the corner, but Kross puts him on the apron. Brandon blocks a kick to CHOP Kross, then enziguri! Brandon slingshots in for a BIG monkey flip! Kross staggers up, swings, but Brandon rolls under to roll back and headscissor Kross to double stomps! Cover, TWO! Kross survives but Brent joins his brother in the ring. The Tate Twins drag Kross up and back suplex, but Kross lands on his feet! Kross boots Brandon then boots Brent, then hops up to double dropkick them both down! Fans rally up, hot tag to Griff! The Machine is in and he rallies with big forearms! He SPINEBUSTERS Brandon, then gives Brent a tilt-o-whirl backbreaker to a second tilt-o-whirl backbreaker!

Fans fire up as Griff runs in at Brandon for a BIG splash! Then he whips brother onto brother, and runs in to hit an even bigger splash! Griff scoops Brandon to long dart him at Brent! Then Griff runs at Brandon for a SPEAR! Cover, but Brent saves his brother! Brent and Brandon go after Griff, but Kross comes in. All four men brawl with big hands, but Griff hits a rolling elbow on Brent! Brandon enziguris Griff! Kross spinning roundhouses Brandon! Kross stands up and powers up, Turtle Destruction- CHOKE GRIP! Brandon builds up power, lifts, but Kross slips through the slam! Destruction Wave palm strike!! All four men are down but slowly regrouping. Kross returns to his corner, tags in and goes after Brandon. No wait that’s Brent! Cradle counter, TWO!!

Brent runs but into Griff’s lift! Kross springboards, enziguri powerbomb combo! Cover, but Brandon breaks it in time! Brandon dares Griff to fight and sends him out. Slingshot splash takes Griff down! Kross falls for the bait now and gets a shoulder. Brandon shouts to Brent, slingshot sunset to double wheelbarrow facebuster! Cover, Griff is too late, the Tate Twins win!

Winners: The Tate Twins, Brent pinning

The forces of justice collided, and it was the young birds of the night that prevailed! Will Brandon and Brent be able to defeat true forces of evil and become champions?


ROH throws it back to Team IQ.

Ian and Quinn are still excited to relive Honor For All’s Defy or Deny. However, Quinn is also excited about the Top Prospect Tournament. Fans surely have followed along via ROH’s YouTube channel. The winner of this tournament gets a shot at the ROH World Television Championship, and if they win, they might be headed to the UK. Honor United returns October 25th, 26th and 27th! Tickets are moving fast, get them while you can! ROH now relives the closing moments of the International Cup 2018!


International Cup Finals: Mark Haskins VS Hangman Adam Page!

Overkill and the Problem Solver both boosted their legacies with this tournament, and you can find Honor Re-United on Honor Club’s archive for the whole match. ROH TV jumps into the meat of the match as Hangman has Haskins on the ropes.

Fans duel as Hangman toys with Haskins. Hangman dares Haskins to get up, then brings him up for a BIG forearm! Haskins leans on the ropes but gets himself back up to ROCK Hangman back! Hangman hits another BIG forearm, but Haskins comes back with another! Hangman and Haskins start speeding up with those forearms back and forth. Haskins gets the edge, fakes Hangman out to JAB with that left! Hangman checks his chin, but still gives Haskins a SPINEBUSTER! Jackknife roll through, Alabama position, but Haskins slips out to pump handle. Hangman fights out to rock Haskins with another right. Hangman goes to lift Haskins in the Alabama, but Haskins makes it a DESTROYER! Then pump handle, DRIVER! Cover, Haskins wins!!

Winner: Mark Haskins, by pinfall; wins the 2018 International Cup

The inaugural winner of this international tournament would go on to join up with LifeBlood and now leads the charge in restoring the honor to ROH. Will another tournament of this kind start again? Who will rise up to take hold of such a huge honor?


Jay Lethal prepares for tonight’s Defy or Deny.

“Tonight, what a dangerous situation.” King, Cobb and Taven all at once. The ultimate goal is that Lethal needs to get that guaranteed shot at the world title. But there’s a chance he will never have it again while Taven reigns. The real question then is, “Why would anyone agree to such a match?” Because the ROH World Championship is just that important. Is tonight Lethal’s night?


Defy or Deny: Matt Taven VS Kenny King VS Jeff Cobb VS Jay Lethal!

For the first time in ROH history, the ROH World Champion will go through such an Elimination Fatal 4 Way for a second time! Taven is cocky enough to think he’ll get through this easily before facing Rush in Vegas, but will he be shocked to find making history isn’t so easy? We all find out, after the break.

ROH returns again as the bell rings. Taven says he doesn’t even need to be in this match, he beat King, he beat Cobb, and he definitely beat Lethal. They don’t deserve to be in the ring, and not one man has gotten the job done! So all three go after him together! King, Lethal and Cobb take turns throwing hands on Taven, but then King gets too greedy. Lethal turns King around for a haymaker! Those two still have their feud, so Cobb CHOPS Taven for himself. Lethal throws hands in a corner while Taven dumps Cobb out. King rakes eyes and tosses Lethal out, but then Taven rakes King’s eyes. Taven headlocks and gets the takeover. Fans boo but King works his way up. King powers out of the headlock but Taven runs him over. Because “IIII’M Matt Taven!”

Things speed up, King keeps Lethal out with a forearm while Taven does the same to Cobb. King kicks Taven and he throws Taven to the apron. Taven shoulders back in, but King ducks the clothesline to slip out to the apron. King knocks Taven down with an Eddie Gordo kick, but Lethal triangle dropkicks King! Cobb gets in and fans fire up for him staring down with Lethal. Lethal and Cobb have fans dueling as they circle. They tie up and Lethal headlocks. Cobb powers out and they collide. Cobb barely moves, so Lethal tries again. Lethal runs, bumps but he’s the one who bounces off. So Lethal gets fans going as he goes again, but Cobb drops down, leaps over but Lethal dropkicks him back. Cobb stays up and then runs Lethal over! Cobb brings Lethal up for headbutts and forearms then whips. Lethal reverses and arm-drags, then manages a snap suplex! But Cobb’s right up! Lethal is stunned, but things speed up again.

Lethal dodges Cobb to knock Taven out of the ring. Cobb dodges Lethal to knock King out of the ring. Lethal dodges and goes to hip toss, but Cobb blocks to hip toss and cartwheel! Gochimuchi standing moonsault, but Lethal gets out of the way! Lethal hip tosses to cartwheel dropkick! Fans fire up with Lethal as covers, ONE! Cobb crawls but Lethal brings him up. Lethal whips, Cobb reverses and King drags Lethal out. Taven runs in but is scooped to a stalling suplex! Cobb holds Taven up for a count of 5 before King kicks him low. But Cobb double clutches to have Taven up for another 5 while King runs. Lethal drags King out now and Cobb keeps holding up Taven. Cobb drops Taven down at 7 while Lethal throws haymakers on King. Lethal has King in a corner of the barriers and has him take a seat. Lethal rains down fists, all the way to 10! Fans are fired up as ROH goes to break.

ROH returns again as Cobb CHOPS Taven in a corner. Cobb throws some forearms then another big CHOP! Cobb gets space to run in for another forearm, then another CHOP! He adds headbutts and then TOSSES Taven across the way! Taven is sore but standing, and he dodges Cobb. King knees Cobb in the corner, Taven adds an enziguri, and together they double back suplex Cobb down! Lethal leaps up to leap over King and rock Taven. King waistlocks but Lethal elbows out. Lethal forearms Taven then runs, but King and Taven go to double clotheslines. Lethal slips through to send King into Taven. They do-si-do and Lethal SUPERKICK, but King blocks it! King hands it off to Taven, King roundhouses and Taven heel kicks Lethal down! Fans cheer the teamwork as King drags Lethal up for Taven. Taven makes sure the Melvins are watching as he CHOPS Lethal! King covers, TWO!

King is upset with the ref but Taven keeps on Lethal. Taven suplexes Lethal then covers, TWO! King kicks Cobb out of the ring, then he and Taven go after Lethal with grinding boots onto the rope. The ref counts and both men let up at 4, to then drag Lethal up again. Taven tosses Lethal out and coordinates with King to go out and continue. They go after Cobb together but Lethal goes after Taven. They all brawl and Taven puts Lethal in while King rakes Cobb’s face. Taven whips Lethal corner to corner hard! King returns to taunt Lethal as he drags him up. King scoops Lethal for a backbreaker! Taven taunts Lethal now, but fans rally for Lethal. Cobb returns but gets a SUPERKICK from King! Taven drags Lethal up, King CHOPS Lethal down. Taven coordinates with King again, and they double facelock, but King rolls Taven up! TWO and Taven is mad! King says all is fair and square in this match, but Lethal CLOBBERS King from behind!

Taven and Lethal brawl now, but Taven trips Lethal. Taven steps through to get the Figure Four! King climbs up top as Lethal endures, but Cobb clubs King down. Cobb hauls King off in a Canadian rack, to SLAM onto Taven! Lethal is saved and all four men are down. Fans cheer and rally as Cobb and Lethal get up. Cobb runs in to hit the big elbow! Cobb rallies with clotheslines and dropkicks, and then ROCKS King with that right! Cobb scoops Lethal for a big slam, then hits that standing moonsault! Fans fire up with Cobb but Taven’s back, only to run into a fireman’s carry! Helicopter toss! Cover, TWO!! Taven stays in this as ROH goes to another break!

ROH returns once more, and Cobb has King on the top rope. Cobb wants but King resists the superplex. King clubs and shoves Cobb away, then leaps for a BLOCKBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! The K I N G Kiiing is ready to end Cobb as he drags him up. He gets Cobb up for the fireman’s carry, but Taven’s vengeful ego has him go after King. Taven CHOPS then whips King, King sunset flips, Taven rolls through to hit King with Just the Tip of the knee! Cover, TWO!? King survives and Taven is furious. Lethal is back and Taven clubs away. Taven whips but Lethal dodges, handspring to LETHAL- NO, Taven catches Lethal with a headlock. But no Climax, Lethal slips out to hit the cutter! King SUPERKICKS Lethal, Cobb SUPERKICKS King! Taven SUPERKICKS Cobb but Cobb rebounds, Taven dodges and Cobb LARIATS Lethal! Taven kicks, jabs and DDT’s Cobb! All four men are down but the fans are fired up!

A standing count begins, so this could get many men at once! The count climbs to 9/20 but Taven and King start brawling from the mat. They rise to their feet and Knig kicks and forearms. King CHOPS then jabs, repeat! King runs, Taven rocks him with a back elbow! Taven facelocks but King slips out. King blocks the kick to spinning roundhouse Taven! Lethal rises and dodges King, LETHAL- Roll up! TWO, but Lethal gives King the Lethal Combination! Fans fire up and Lethal heads up top. But Amy Rose makes a move and Lethal will not let her cheat for King again. Rose runs off but that allows Taven to grab the world title belt and smack King with it! King dodges and Taven SMASHES Cobb! The ref saw that! Taven ELIMINATES himself!

Taven argues with the ref, and that allows King to SMASH Lethal with the belt! King drags Lethal to the fireman’s carry, ROYAL FLUSH! Cover, King ELIMINATES Lethal! The chaos benefits King in the end, and now he has Cobb all to himself. King taunts Cobb to get up, someone is definitely earning a title shot. Fans boo King but he soaks it all up. Cobb slowly rises in a corner as fans rally behind him. King shakes his head, he won’t be denied. King rakes Cobb’s back then fireman’s carries, but Cobb slips out. King dodges and shoves Cobb to a corner, roll up, but with feet on the ropes! TWO but King kicks and sweeps the legs!

King elbows out fast, but Cobb reels him back in for a Snap German! Fastest snap possible, at that! King flounders up, into Cobb’s arms, TOUR OF THE ISLANDS!! Cover, COBB WINS!!

Winner: Jeff Cobb, by pinfall; earns a future ROH World Championship match

Cobb says aloha (bye) to King and aloha (hello) to another shot at the world title! After Death Before Dishonor, who will meet Cobb for a truly massive match?



My Thoughts:

Well, still an episode where ROH needed to feature past event highlights, but still some good original content, too. Soldiers of Savagery weren’t necessarily that good original content, a squash match is only so good when it’s so fast like that. Maybe these guys will finally face some real teams once ROH figures itself out. Master & Machine VS Tate Twins in their new form was a fun match, and it is great for Brandon and Brent to win. I always felt something was there when they were The Boys, they’re going to be a lot of fun as they get even better. ROH threw in International Cup’s final segments for whatever reason, I’m surprised they would show anything with an Elite member. It was a plug for Honor United, yes, but unless we’re getting something big for Haskins, Honor United or both, no real point to it in the moment.

What we got of the Center Stage Six Man was fun, and I knew Woods would attack the CMLL stars to go further Heel. I wonder if now there comes a point where push comes to shove and Woods becomes a worse Heel than Silas, and that’s saying something. The Defy or Deny was a great match, but it almost feels like they knew this would end up on ROH TV because of how they paced the eliminations. It all came down to the very end of the match, where once again, Amy Rose works out as an ace in the hole for King. Lethal is the only one pointing it out, so maybe we get more King VS Lethal where Amy messes up and costs King to break their working relationship. It was great for Cobb to win this. As I said around Best in the World time, Cobb should be ROH World Champion. The only reason he wasn’t was of the timing with the G1 Climax. Now that G1 is over, I would love for Cobb to get that title off whoever, but chances are Rush gets the title and keeps it for awhile. Cobb VS Rush would still be amazing, though.

My Score: 8.2/10

Andrew’s IMPACT Results & Match Ratings: 6.30.2022

The Go Home to Against All Odds with the main event of Battle of the Futures Redux! TNA vibes and hype in the Asylum!



Against All Odds is tomorrow, and the one thing IMPACT has excelled with are the quick turnaround angles. Plus we also HOPEFULLY get a real finish to the Battle of the Futures 2022 edition. Frankie Kazarian and Chris Sabin have a main event that could definitely be something special.


  • Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey: Trey wins via Meteora – ***
  • Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw: Gisele wins via Knee Strike – ** ¼
  • Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace: Jordynne wins via Muscle Buster – **
  • IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More: Karl retains via Roll Up – ** ½
  • Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne: Ace wins via The Fold – ** ¾
  • Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/Alex Shelley: Sabin wins via Cradle Shock – *****



Fatal 4 Way: Steve Maclin vs Trey Miguel vs Laredo Kid vs Chris Bey

Early on the smaller men gang up on Maclin, which of course is the smart thing to do. Trey and Bey trade a few shots, Laredo tries to interject himself but Maclin comes back in and starts taking over. Wipes out most of the guys then they start trickling in for pinfall saves and each guy chopping at the bigger man. Trey does however go for a John Woo, misses and Tree of Woes himself to set up for Maclin’s Caught in the Crosshairs corner spear.

Action continues to be pretty fluid, Trey takes out Maclin, Bey looks for an Asai Moonsault, but turns it into the 5 Hole Dive that MCMG do when Laredo Kid dives through Bey’s legs. Then Bey hits the Asai Moonsault and Bey brings Laredo into the ring and tries to find a winning angle. Pop Up Cutter from Bey, but Trey saves it. A little back and forth, Trey goes to the top, misses the Meteora, but lands on his feet and manages a Running Meteora for the pinfall victory.

Trey beat Speedball before Slammiversary, so Speedball has some payback in his mind.

Rosemary vs Gisele Shaw

Madison Rayne and Tenille Dashwood are at the commentary desk for this match since Gisele did offer to fill in for an injured Madison for the Knockouts Tag rematch.

Rosemary controls Gisele early and then bends her backwards and bites her forehead. Gisele almost starts taking back over, but then Rosemary gets out of a headlock the Crazzy Steve way. Rosemary takes some control early until Gisele powders and tries to find a way back into the match. Commercial break brings us to Gisele taking Rosemary’s head off with a Lariat.

Now Gisele is in control, throws Rosemary into a corner and starts pandering for a photo op and posturing to The Influence. Gisele strings together a lot of corner attacks, whips her into the corner again and lays her out with a Flying European Uppercut. Gisele tries to hit the knee in the back of the head, but Rosemary moves and starts her comeback. Big Suplex from the corner and Rosemary keeps her down for 2. Rosemary is in control until Gisele hits and Oscutter out of nowhere for 2. Reverse DDT from Rosemary for another near fall and then The Influence is on the move. They ambush Taya, Rosemary tries to go for her Spear anyway and Shaw kills Rosemary with a great Knee Strike. Rosemary is out, Gisele wins.

A small beat down, and then The Influence pause in the ring for a little, before posing with Gisele and seemingly giving their mark of approval on her being in The Influence now.

Savannah Evans w/Tasha Steelz vs Jordynne Grace

Savannah bulldozes Jordynne into the corner, but the power game is pretty even here. Savannah has some height, but Jordynne is quicker. Jordynne manages to turn the tables on Savannah, up and over in the corner and whips her into the ropes while setting up behind her causing Evans to trip and fall. Savannah powders, Jordynne tries to break up the discussion, but after a quick flurry, Savannah hits an Apron Chokeslam and takes over.

After some back and forth, Jordynne takes back over and then Muscle Buster on Savannah Evans and its over!

IMPACT Tag Team Championship: The Good Brothers (c) w/James Storm vs Vincent & PCO w/ Honor No More

Karl and Vincent start things off, and corner to corner we see the Machine Gun in control, but a thumb to the eyes and quick strike give Vincent the chance to tag in PCO. French Canadian Frankenstein starts beating on Karl, throws him into the ropes, Vincent kicks him and it just pisses off Karl. But Karl getting distracted gives PCO the ambush chance and Karl is just getting rocked. Vincent tagged back in, quick strikes including a corner Facewash with the elbow, sliding Flatliner and PCO is back in.

PCO goes Splash into dropping DDT before hitting the middle rope Guillotine Leg Drop. LG has gotten no action while Karl is getting killed. Deanimator set up looks to take out Karl even further, and it hits! Vincent tags in, and finally Anderson Spinebuster gets LG a hot tag. Big Boot takes out PCO on the apron, Superkick and flying Big Man flattens Vincent, tag to Karl, Magic Killer set up…but PCO with the save. Satellite Russian Leg Sweep from Vincent, RedRUM misses and Karl scoops the Small Package for the win.

Immediately Honor No More attacks. Chris Harris slides in and Honor No More choose to jaw and tease him instead of attacking immediately. HEATH’s music hits before they can attack Harris, and he comes loaded with pipes. Harris and Heath lay out Honor No More with pipes, Wake Up Call from Heath, Pump Kick, Gun Stun and then only Taven is left. Last Call Superkick sends Taven to sleep.

Ace Austin w/Chris Bey vs Alex Zayne

Zayne tries to start immediately, but Ace takes a page from the Jay White book and powders right away. Ace stays a step ahead until a nice Flipping Bodyscissors out of the corner keeps Ace rolling and eating some kicks. Ace tries a top corner move and Zayne flips into a Headscissors for the advantage before commercial. Coming back Ace is in control after driving Zayne into the post.

Ace and Zayne trade, we see Zayne finally get the best of the situations. Cinnamon Twist or Crunchwrap Supreme are hinted at, but Ace rolls away. Zayne tries to get Ace in position for his Taco Driver, but Ace has all the answers. Big kicks and strikes, Ace goes for the Outside/In Avalanche Headscissors, but Zayne mostly flips the through it, but eats a Triangle Kick for his attempted counter. The Fold – gets countered with a Sauce Trigger! Ace powders, Moonsauce to take out Bey and Ace, but Bey grabs his foot before he can get back in, Ace keeps the referee distracted…THE FOLD as soon as Zayne is back in the ring and Bullet Club wins!

Battle of the Futures Redux: Frankie Kazarian vs Chris Sabin w/ Alex Shelley

If this is as good as I anticipate…I may forget how to type. So fair warning if I get sucked in, this could be a short review.

We saw both men had a plan, Sabin went after Kaz’s legs early and often, where Kaz focused on the neck. There were great callbacks, classic moments, even the feint with the Flux Capacitor which is how Kaz won the original Battle of the Futures.

This was Brian Hebner’s final match, and hot damn was it a classic. Everything about this was great.

Overall Score: 9/10

Starting out hot with the X Division match, 2 solid Knockouts matches and a main event that could’ve easily been on any PPV over the last 20 years. This set the stage well for tomorrow’s Against All Odds and could’ve been one of the best Go Home episodes from any company in recent memory. Also it was really awesome getting the Raven vignette to hype the Clockwork Orange House of Fun.

My review of Against All Odds will be a little late since I had prior engagements because Fridays aren’t usually PPVs, but I’ll get to it on Saturday. Watch it live yourself, catch the run down Saturday, either way IMPACT is killin it with that TNA vibe. Maybe its time we go back to a certain 3 letters…a 6 sided ring, or hell, just announce Lethal Lockdown. Bring that back from the dead dammit!

And the heir gets right back on track! Blair gets the mic to say she is back! And she is here to crush all of your hopes. Is that key word a message to a certain someone? Or is it a message to everyone who would dare defy the heir?


NXT UK Media caught up with Sid Scala.

The Assistant General Manager returns to his office, and Kenny Williams is there waiting! Kenny says it’s about time Sid showed up! Kenny’s been working all night, as we can see by the conspiracy web taking over Sid’s office, and Kenny claims he has finally figured it out! Tiger Turan has to be none other than… Sid says Kenny needs to stop, this isn’t why Sid asked to meet with him. This is about next week, a match between Kenny and Tiger Turan! And just as Sid says that, Tiger steps in. Kenny says this is just who he was looking for. But here’s what will happen. Kenny will win, knock Turan out and take off his mask to reveal it’s Amir Jordan!

So right now, Tiger Turan can clean up this mess while Kenny prepares. Is the Scum of the Earth on to something? Is Tiger Turan obsessed with Kenny because it’s Amir Jordan, the man Kenny banished from NXT UK over a year ago? Or is he going to lose this match along with his mind?


Noam Dar & Sha Samuels enter the NXT UK Performance Center.

The Scottish Supernova isn’t sure why they’re here, but the East End Bookie/Butcher promises it is for good reason: they’re going to make some big money. Dar then sees the ring and the training session Mark Coffey is helping with. Dar & Sha taunt them and Mark walks over to ask, “What’s wrong? Run out of ways to cheat?” Dar says he never needs to cheat, and certainly not to beat Mark. Dar didn’t need to cheat to beat “Dog Man” Wolfgang, or to beat big brother Joe and run him out of town. Mark points out Dar only won because of his bookie at ringside. Mark guarantees that if Sha isn’t around, Mark wins the cup.

Sha says no way, Dar is the best ever! Mark says they can bet on it. Sha takes that bet! 100 to 1, Dar still beats Mark! Sha puts money on it quite literally, and says the market is open! Everyone else swarms Sha, wanting to put money on this, too! Dar looks worried with just how many want to join in. Are they betting all on Mark? Dar is a bit upset by that, but will he prove Sha right and take everyone, including Coffey, to the cleaners?


Emilia McKenzie VS Fallon Henley!

#SuplexMillie is still Meiko Satomura’s protégé, but she might be feeling the pressure as of late. The Final Boss demands the best out of her disciple, but will those expectations be met? Or will the Cowgirl rope herself a big win just like Briggs & Jensen did?

The bell rings and the two tie up. They go around, end up in a deadlock, but Millie shots around to waistlock. Fallon pries at the hold, standing switches, and SLAMS Millie down. Millie slips out to hammerlock and fans rally for Millie as she cranks the hold. Fallon fights to sit up, rolls out and has the wristlock. Millie slips through, wristlocks back, but Fallon pries at the hold. Fallon slips through, hammerlocks Millie now, but Millie works on the hold. Fallon rolls Millie up, TWO! Fans applaud the opening exchange as the two stare down. Fallon and Millie reset, tie up with knuckle locks, and they have a test of strength!

Millie wrenches the wrists, kicks an arm, rolls and trips Fallon to have a standing toehold! Fallon endures, uses her free leg to kick free, but Millie cartwheels through. Fans applaud again, and even Fallon offers a handshake. Millie accepts and fans cheer the sportsmanship, and the two tie up again. Millie powers Fallon back but Fallon turns it around to arm-drag Millie away. Fallon shoots in but Millie sits on the cover, ONE! Fallon sunset flips, ONE! Millie tries a jackknife but Fallon rolls through it, TWO! Millie has the sunset, TWO!! Fans fire up for that exchange and the two reset again.

They tie up, Millie headlocks, but Fallon powers up. Millie holds tight, Fallon pries the hold open and turns it around onto Millie! Millie endures, powers out but Fallon runs her over! Fallon does a two step then runs, but Millie keeps up with the drop, sidestep, but Fallon counters hip toss with a hip toss! Fallon arm-drags Millie away and Millie takes a moment to catch her breath. Fallon is on her but Millie EuroUppers! Millie kicks low, CLUBS Fallon on the back, and has her on the ropes. Millie CLUBS Fallon again, has her in a corner now and kicks her low. Fallon throws shots back but Millie CLUBS Fallon, into the TWIST ‘N’ SHOUT! Cover, TWO!

Millie comes back to ROCK Fallon, Fallon ROCKS Millie! They throw hands, and Fallon DECKS Millie! Fallon fires up to back elbow Millie in a corner! And then a RUNNING FACEBUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Fans fire up as Millie survives! Fallon drags Millie up, fireman’s carries, but Millie slips off and shoves to then LARIAT! And again! Millie shoots around to get Fallon up for a BIG bag suplex! Cover, TWO! Fans rally and Millie snarls as she hauls Fallon up. Fallon fights the German Suplex, pops free to switch, but Millie elbows Fallon. Millie whips Fallon to a corner but Fallon goes up and over. Fallon’s leg tweaks! Millie shows no mercy, CHOP BLOCK!!

Millie stomps away on Fallon’s leg and fans fire up! Millie drags Fallon up, reels her in, SHIN BREAKER! And then another SHIN BREAKER! Fallon hobbles, Millie gets her again, but Fallon sunset flips! FALLON WINS!

Winner: Fallon Henley, by pinfall

Millie showed her killer instinct, but maybe she let it get the better of her! Will this be the exact opposite of what Meiko wanted for Millie?


NXT UK Media catches up with Oliver Carter.

They ask him if he’s been keeping in contact with Ashton Smith while he’s out with injury. Of course! Oliver has Ashton on speed dial. They are brothers, that’s never gonna change. But then Teoman and his Die Familie “brothers,” Rohan Raja and Charlie Dempsey slither in and say hi to “Oli.” They sit with him and they feel like this is deja vu. Oliver’s alone, no Ashton Smith, no titles. Oliver needs a family to watch out for him. It is a dangerous place out there. Join them! It’s in his best interest. They’ll let him think about it, and take their leave. Is there anything to think about? Or will the Hottest Superstar Under the Sun actually consider their invitation?


NXT UK Media catches up with Sarray.

The Warrior of the Sun is about to get in a set of squats as they ask her how she feels after her NXT UK debut. Sarray says it was very good. She got a win over Nina Samuels, and she- “Aww~, look!” Xia and Eliza return to mock Sarray for simply training in the UK PC after her first win. It’s so cute. But has Eliza heard the good news? Sarray’s sticking around for a bit. Oh, is she? But then Meiko and Millie step up to back the bullies down. Eliza tells Sarray that she better just play by their rules, or they’ll be more than happy to teach Sarray a few things.

Meiko tells Eliza that she talks too much. If Eliza & Xia want a match with Meiko and Sarray, then Eliza & Xia will be the ones being taught a lesson. Millie seems a bit surprised Meiko didn’t choose her, while Xia & Eliza storm off, Xia complaining about who is teaching who lessons. But with that, Sarray finishes putting up the weights for Meiko to take a turn. Will Final Boss & Warrior of the Sun prove to the bullies the power of Joshi Strong Style?


Wolfgang VS Sha Samuels w/ Noam Dar!

The Last King of Scotland heard the East End Butcher talking some smack like he wouldn’t hear it. But since he did, it’s time for Sha to put his money where his mouth is! Will Wolfgang get a big win and cash in? Or will Sha find another way to weasel out another victory?

The bell rings and the two circle. Sha gets some last minute pointers from Dar. They say they can frustrate Wolfgang and get the edge. But then Dar needs to give Sha another pointer. The ref insists they get this started already, and Wolfgang rushes in. Sha dodges, then dodges again. Sha goes back to Dar for that last pointer but Wolfgang throws Sha out of the corner! Wolfgang fires off haymakers, then an arm-drag! Wolfgang keeps on the arm with a wristlock, then stands Sha up to RAM shoulders. And again! And then a straight arm lever and SLAM! Fans fire up and Wolfgang drags Sha up again to RAM shoulders again.

Wolfgang wrenches, and hits a straight arm suplex! Cover, ONE! Dar is upset but Wolfgang keeps on Sha’s arm. Sha ROCKS Wolfgang with his free arm, then bumps Wolfgang off buckles. Sha bumps Wolfgang off more buckles, then throws heavy back elbows. Sha runs in to SPLASH Wolfgang. Wolfgang shoves Sha away, runs in, but Sha sends Wolfgang into buckles! Fans boo but Dar wants to throw up the X. Sha grabs the bad arm for an ARMBAR DDT! Sha CLUBS the bad arm, uppercuts it, then hip drops on it! Wolfgang clutches that arm, tries to get it working, but Sha drops an elbow on it!

Sha clamps onto the arm, Wolfgang fights the cobra clutch and throws body shots. But Sha wrenches and WRINGS the bad arm! Dar offers a drink but Sha says no, he has to keep working. Sha throws down elbows into the bad arm, then stands on Wolfgang to say, “ON THE MONEY~!” Sha KICKS the bad leg, then shouts out “EAST~!” Sha stomps Wolfgang but fans chant, “You’re a Mug! You’re a Mug!” Dar says yeah, Wolfgang’s the mug! But that’s not who they mean. Sha RAMS Wolfgang into the buckles, stomps away on the bad arm, then runs in to stomp it again! The ref backs Sha off, and Dar SMACKS Wolfgang around with the papers!

Wolfgang gets mad and he CHOPS Sha! And CHOPS again! And counter punches! Wolfgang suplexes Sha, but Sha fights to get to the apron. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Wolfgang staggers away and Sha gets in to run and LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this, and Dar offers another drink. Sha says no, and he drops elbow after elbow on Wolfgang! Sha then goes up a corner, and leaps for a FLYING ELBOW DROP! Cover, TWO! Wolfgang is still in this and fans rally up. Sha stalks Wolfgang, CLUBS him at the ropes, then pulls on the bad arm. Wolfgang ROCKS Sha and gives him a kitchen sink knee! BASEMENT SENTON!

Sha hauls Wolfgang up, reels him in and whips, but Wolfgang slips off the scoop to POINT-BLANK SPEAR!! But the bad arm holds Wolfgang back from making the cover, and Sha crawls away to his corner. Dar fans Sha, but fans rally for Wolfgang. Wolfgang grabs at Sha on the apron, hauls him up the corner, but Sha throws body shots. Sha HOTSHOTS the bad arm again! Wolfgang is stuck up top and Sha ROCKS him with haymakers! Sha DECKS Wolfgang!

Sha climbs up again, for the FROG SPLASH onto knees! Wolfgang saves himself but both men are down and writhing. Fans rally up again and Wolfgang grits his teeth as he gets back up. Wolfgang rallies on Sha with the one good arm! Wolfgang whips Sha to then back drop him! Fans fire up, Sha gets to a corner and Wolfgang runs in to fire off forearms! Wolfgang howls and runs, to SPLASH again! Dar is up on the apron but Wolfgang BOOTS him down! Fans cheer and Wolfgang SLINGSHOTS to SPEAR!! Cover, Wolfgang wins!!

Winner: Wolfgang, by pinfall

Fans cheer as the Last King of Scotland stands tall! This Gallus Boy is on top, but will Mark Coffey be on top in two weeks after he gets one more shot at Dar and the Heritage Cup?


Trent Seven heads to the ring.

And what a strange thing, for all the fans to boo this Founding Father of NXT UK. He gets a mic and “thanks” us all for that reception. Seven heard the chant of “Why, Trent, Why?” Good question! He will use visual aids to explain just exactly why. The tron shows Trent giving Tyler Bate that truly underhanded low blow uppercut. Trent gets teary eyed as he says it is just beautiful. “It’s the best low blow ever. That’s what it is.” Just look at his positioning! A work of art, really. And more importantly, it represents a turning point. “That right there is the most important moment in British Sports.” Fans chant, “No it’s not! No it’s not!”

But he says yes it is, and we all know it is, “because it’s the moment that Trent Seven saved the industry.” Fans boo but Seven asks they listen. It is the truth “because this place was dead! This studio was a ghost town! And now look at you all! Now look at you all back! The largest crowd in NXT UK BT Sports history is here because Trent Seven is on top!” Fans boo more but Seven says, “It’s a fact. This is where I like to be. Right here. Right at the top, right in the middle, the CENTER of attention!” Fans chant, “We Want Tyler!” and Seven is annoyed. “Tyler Bate is done. Now I am the center of attention, and we were the center of attention as British Strong Style! And as Moustache Mountain.”

Seven goes on about how they were touring the world, selling out every arena, and promotors were begging them to even be on the shows. “Please~! We need you~!” Yes, they did. And that is why fans need to understand it isn’t Seven who changed, it’s Tyler who changed. Seven never lost the killer instinct, he never stopped doing what was needed to win, but it was Tyler who lost his nerve. That will to win is gone, because “it’s all that rubbish, sitting in a field, hugging a tree.” But Bate isn’t coming back, and we know he won’t because he won’t fight Seven! Fans chant, “Yes, He Will!” Seven says no, he won’t, because Bate lost his fighting spirit.

“Tyler Bate is the Little Weak Boy. And I am NXT UK! I am this brand! I am NXT! I am British Strong Style! Come here! Come here! I am Moustache Mountain!!” Fans boo as Seven sets down the mic, and Seven says everyone knows he’s telling the truth. Is he telling the truth about the future of NXT UK? Or will Tyler Bate prove Trent Seven is a liar and make a heroic return?

Wait, a fan gets really heated about Seven saying Tyler is weak and afraid. So much so, friends and security are trying to get him to calm down. But the fan jumps the barrier instead! Security rushes in to stop this man from getting closer and Seven says, “We’ve got a live one!” And then he LOW BLOW KICKS the fan!! Referees rush out and say Seven is out of line! Seven says the fan is the one who got up in Seven’s face. Is there nothing Seven won’t do just to make himself feel like the bigger man?

My Thoughts:

A very good episode of NXT UK with some good set-up for the summer episodes. Blair Davenport gets a good return match win, with Angel Hayze still looking very good in the loss. And Blair emphasizing “hope” at the end of her promo has to be her setting up something with Amale before moving on to the title again. Kenny and Sid had a good interaction to set up Kenny VS Tiger Turan. But sadly for me and my theories, if Kenny also thinks Amir Jordan is Tiger Turan, then that must mean it isn’t because they wouldn’t do that. They can’t let Kenny be right about this, right? It’d be pretty wild for Kenny to win and be right about who Tiger Turan is under the mask.

Millie VS Fallon was a very good match, but I feel like they could’ve played up more of Millie struggling to be aggressive before it backfired on her. But Millie losing does help build her story of disappointing Meiko and herself. Millie also had a very good bit of character work showing her surprise and bit of hurt feelings when Meiko chose Sarray to be her tag partner against Xia & Eliza. But that’s still going to be an awesome match with Sarray and Meiko side by side. Meiko & Sarray will surely win and that will surely set up Meiko VS Sarray for an awesome NXT UK Women’s Championship.

We got a decent interaction from Oliver Carter and Die Familie. I would think Carter rejects Die Familie’s invitation, and he could easily team up with other superstars who don’t like Die Familie, like Mastiff & Starz or even A-Kid. And we got a pretty good promo with Sha, Dar and Mark Coffey about how we’re getting that 100 to 1 betting odds Heritage Cup match. If Mark is getting one more shot in what Dar claims should be his “retirement” match, does that mean Mark wins? Someone from Gallus should get something more, and Dar losing will be his own reason for “not retiring.” Plus, if Mark wins, and Joe Coffey comes back, I’d love seeing Mark VS Joe for the cup.

Wolfgang VS Sha was a great main event match, and I figured Wolfgang would win to get Gallus back up. I don’t know what’s next for Wolfgang, but he’s always been a solid character and in-ring worker. And then, we closed with a very good promo from Seven, with him playing off the crowd’s chants and booing very well. That final bit with “the fan” was quite a surprise but it sure adds to Seven’s Heel heat. But obviously, Bate is coming back and he is going to have one hell of a match with Seven. Can’t be sure who wins that, but it’d make a lot of sense if Seven cheated to win, and then somehow, Seven uses that to go after Ilja Dragunov and the UK Championship.

My Score: 8.5/10
