NEW ROH Coverage

Matt Davis is back with his look at Ring of Honor on FITE TV Episode 421 featuring Jay Lethal vs. PJ Black!

Welcome ladies and gentlemen to Ring of Honor television! We open up with the ending of Death Before Dishonor a few weeks ago showing the moment Rush defeated Matt Taven for the ROH World Championship. Ian Riccaboni welcomes us to the episode, recapping that the company crowned two new world champions that night, also showing us that Angelina Love defeated Kelly Klein for the Women Of Honor Championship.

They tell us that tonight we will see PJ Black against Jay Lethal, who was originally scheduled to face Bandido but Bandido was injured at Death Before Dishonor, in our main event. Riccaboni adds that we are going to look at Rush’s brother, Dragon Lee, who says he will make Ring of Honor his new home. The former IWGP Jr Heavyweight Champion was featured in the ROH Six Man Tag Team Championship match at Death Before Dishonor and that’s where we begin

1) The Briscoe Brothers & Dragon Lee vs Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, PCO, & Brody King)
ROH SIX MAN TAG TEAM CHAMPIONSHIPS
“Death Before Dishonor”

We start off in the middle of the action with a Jay Briscoe ripcord neckbreaker followed by Dragon Lee jumping off the top rope onto Brody King with a stomp to the heart, followed by a Mark Briscor Froggy Bow, Jay with a quick cover and Brody King kicks out! Cut to Scurll who tries a superkick to Jay Briscoe but he ducks and Scurll nails King in the jaw! Mark jumps off the apron with a blockbuster to Scurll! Cut to Scurll launching PCO over the top rope to his opponents with a cannonball crushing everyone in sight! Cut to PCO with a cannonball off the top rope across the head and neck of Mark Briscoe extended across the apron! Dragon Lee with a hurricanrana off the apron to PCO, Scurll superkicks Lee off the apron! Scurll looking for the crossface chickenwing which gets a great reaction from the live crowd, but no, Mark Briscoe with an inside cradle..one..two..no! LARIAT BY SCURLL! Double underhook suplex which he calls the Black Plague, he hooks the leg and gets the win for Villain Enterprises!

Winners: Villain Enterprises
Grade: N/A
Thoughts: So… they use this match to tell us about Dragon Lee, who did all of two moves in this brief clipped match. What was the point in that to showcase your newest talent? His team didn’t even win. Whoever runs the production team didn’t think this one through at all. I’m speechless at the logic of that one.

Jay Lethal is backstage talking about how he didnt prepare for PJ Black, he spent time preparing for Bandido for his first round match (don’t forget, in episode #420, they told us that Jay Lethal won this match and will wrestle at Glory by Honor in the semi-finals). He calls PJ Black lucky because he has everything to gain here, being added in at the last second. Jay Lethal says he would love to become ROH World Champion a third time, and he thinks it might just happen.

After a quick ad break, we are back with images of Angelina Love spraying cosmetic product in the face of the champion and getting the pin. Kelly Klein tells us that she’s not done with Love and she is coming for her and she knows where she is! Ian Riccaboni tells us that Kelly Klein will challenge Angelina Love at Glory by Honor. He also tells us that there is a 15 man #1 contender’s battle royal and the winner will face ROH World Champion Rush later that night. He runs down the card some more and tells us we will see Dalton Castle against PCO in the #1 Contender at Final Battle Tournament match, with the winner facing the winner of Scurll vs (Lethal/Black) and reminds us the latter match is our main event as if they didn’t say that less than 4 minutes ago.

We are welcomed to a brief recap of Death Before Dishonor given to us by “Wrestling With Wregret”‘s Brian Zane who is backstage and says he was reeling from DBD and he had the best seat in the house. He says his Top 5 favorite things from Death Before Dishonor were PCO absorbing the cattle prod, Beer City Bruiser being a human dartboard during a Bar Room Brawl with Vinny Marseglia throwing darts into the Bruiser’s back, Lifeblood’s Mark Haskins and Bandido challenging the The Briscoes, and Jay Briscoe ended the match with two Jay Drillers to retain, Jonathan Gresham submitting former two ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, Zane calling Gresham The Octopus of ROH, and his number one favorite moment was Matt Tave agaist Rush. He said Rush led a one man stampede against the leader of The Kingdom, and in the end Taven got the horns. Does anyone really believe him when he says that it was one of the best matches he’s ever seen though? Come on. Come on.

PJ Black is shown backstage, removing his shirt, and says he is very excited for tonight, and that due to injuries, he was able to replace Bandido in the tournament. He says his opponent is one of the best ever, one of ROH’s legends, saying he came to ROH to test himself against guys like Jay Lethal and didn’t think this opportunity could come this early. He says Always Bet On Black when in Vegas, he says all he needs to do is beat Jay Lethal, and then two more men to become ROH World Champion.

We are shown a victory by Coast 2 Coast at an unnamed event, but it happened in Las Vegas in the Sam’s Town Live, when Shaheem Ali pinned Cheeseburger with an inverted uranagi slam. A promo by Coast to Coast follows with LSG telling us that Coast 2 Coast are no longer young boys, and the company will soon recognize that. Ali says if someone has the tag belts, it doesn’t matter who it is, they’re coming to get them, LSG adds that there is a target on the champions back! Ali ends by saying Coast 2 Coast does the most, and they don’t play games.

Backstage at Death Before Dishonor, Quinn McKay stands with “Hotsauce” Tracy Williams as they prepare for his No Disqualification match against Flip Gordon. Williams says that Flip finally gave him what he wanted after months of cheap shots. He says Flip must feel he needs weapons but it won’t matter because he’s going to end this feud tonight, he will not hestitate to end this, and tells Flip Gordon to come prepared, and that he’s going to send Flip Gordon to the shelf for good.

2) Silas Young & Josh Woods vs Coast 2 Coast

This is an exclusive ROH Television match, featuring two teams that are chasing The Briscoe Brothers and a victory here could earn either team a champioship opportunity! Coast 2 Coast makes their entrance first. We are told Silas Young and Josh Woods went undefeated during the Global Wars Tour! We are told Silas Young doesn’t like how “nice” Josh Woods is, but decided to take him under his wings after winning the 2017 Top Prospect Tournament.
Young and LSG start us off, Young with some chain wrestling early on, LSG flips him inside out. Silas Young shows great athleticism with some kip ups trying to escape a wristlock. Multiple cradles for near falls by both men! Tag to Josh Woods with a snapmare, allowing LSG to tag in Ali. The big men square off, as the fans chant “Power Ranger” at Shaheem Ali. We are told wrestling Josh Woods on the mat is a mistake due to his MMA background, as Ali escapes a mount with a rope break as we fade to commercial.

Back to both men still in the ring, Ali trying to wrestle Woods again, Woods reverses a charge attack into a leg cradle for two. Caprice Coleman says that if he were wrestling someone with an amateur background, he’d kick him straight in the mouth. Woods and Young dominating Ali in their corner. Corner to corner splash by Young and tag to Woods, who knocks the wind out of Ali with a knee to the gut for a two count! Ali backs Woods up to the Coast 2 Coast corner as they double team Woods with cheap shots. Woods shoulder first ito the corner, double team slam into LSG’s knees. More double teaming behind the referees back. Woods tries to fight back, but gets driven to his opponents corner again. LSG taunts Young before charging into Woods in the corner. Woods with elbows to both of his opponents, blocks a clothesline into a t-bone suplex to LSG! Woods can’t make the tag as both men down. Both men make tags and Young sends Ali to the outside, clothlining LSG, Ali back in, catches knees to the face by Youg and a top rope assisted suplex for two! LSG with a springboard clothesline. LSG takes down Woods with a lucha tilt-a-whirl bulldog, Ali in and gets a gut wrench powerbomb on Josh Woods! They crush Silas Young in the corner. Woods with a Jumping Knee to Ali! Young blocks LSG off the ropes, backbreaker across the knee into the lariat combination! CHAOS THEORY BY JOSH WOODS! No pin! Young gets thrown outside by Shaheem Ali, Woods and Ali scrap, Woods with a powerslam, no Young catches Ali with a cutter from the elevated position with a double team and gets the win in just over 9 minutes of action.

Winners: Silas Young & Josh Woods
Grade: **
Thoughts: Josh Woods has now been in Ring of Honor several years, and he looks like he just started yesterday. He is crisp when it comes to grappling and takedowns, as that is his amateur background, but overall he is still a very raw product. Coast 2 Coast looked like a great team in the wrong place at the wrong time. They got some nice moves in, but there was no way they were beating Young and Woods tonight.

Backstage at Death Before Dishonor, Matt Taven is shown after the main event walking through the backstage area looking frustrated, tearing his tape off, wondering what’s next for him. We are then shown the end of Colt Cabana against Marty Scurll in the first round of the #1 Contender at Final Battle Tournament, with Scurll winning with the Black Plague. We are shown highlights of PCO defeating Kenny King to advance past the first round after sustaining a cattle prod to the throat, chokeslamming King anyway. Dalton Castle defeated Mark Haskins as well, as the former ROH World Champion won with the a Spinning Clutch Bulldog. We are told you can watch all that match on Youtube! Using a television to plug a Youtube Channel? Well, that’s new.

3) PJ Black vs Jay Lethal
First Round- #1 Contender at Final Battle Tournament

Lethal gets introduced as The Franchise, and he is trying to earn his way back to the championship he lost at Madison Square Garden in April. He is escorted by Jonathan Gresham. Streamers fly over the greatest champion in Ring of Honor history. Both men shake hands to start, giving us the code of honor. Nice.

Black with a standing switch go behind, meanwhile we are told that Gresham does have his manager’s license, because the Nevada State Athletic Commission is strict about that, Lethal and Black tie up into a wristlock, into a Lethal hammerlock. Black picks the lock ad reverses into a cradle for a quick kickout. We are told that Lethal wrestled almost 20 minutes the night before, and that Black is fresh after not competing at Death Before Dishonor. Toehold into a front facelock by PJ Black. Great wrestling here by the South African. Driven to the ropes, Black gives a clean break.

Hard tie up in the ring and Black gets a headlock, multiple leadfrogs by both men, and Black with a leg sweep into a lateral press, Lethal gives his own, arm drags, and a legsweep, Lethal dodges a double stomp and Lethal stares up at PJ Black who says it was that close. They square away again, Vintage Lethal after Lethal tosses Black with a hiptoss into a dropkick combo! Hard chop by Lethal but Lethal on the hunt as he abuses his opponent in the corner with kicks and chops. Lethal blocks a front face lock springboard tornado DDT ad dropkicks the knee of Black, he locks in a Figure Four! Black trying to reach for the ropes! Black has surgically repaired legs after a terrible car accident last year, being repaired with pins and metal rods. Black gets to the ropes, asai moonsault into a reverse DDT and holds on and transitions into a mounted dragon sleeper! Wow!

Snap suplex into a face lock into an stretch plum by Black trying to target the arm that Gresham ripped apart last night. Lethal gets a break and Black with kicks to the spine, cover and gets two, trying to gas Lethal on kickouts. Headscissors takedown into a step through inverted boston crab into a surfboard which he calls the South African Love Bucket as we fade to a break.

Black on top, gets dropkicked in the back by Lethal as he splits himself on the turnbuckle! Both men on top, back elbow by Black, Black threatens a 450 Splash but Lethal blocks with slaps and chops. Lethal now with a superplex but Black blocks. Both men still on top. Lethal with a superplex! Both men down as the referee starts to count. Both men to their feet as they exchange blows. Lethal with a knife edge chop! Black with a chop! Lethal with a chop! Black with a kick, Lethal with a slap, Black with forearms, and a spinning forearm stumbles Lethal. Off the ropes, Black to the apron, springboard dropkick sends Black outside, suicide dive through the ropes connects! Lethal rolls Black inside, Hail to the King OHH YEAHHH, Black blocks! Lethal Combination! Lethal back up top. Elbow smash connects! Hooks the leg and Black kicks out, so close! Both men reaching deep as they’re in the corner, Lethal with rights, Black reverses a whip, SPANISH FLY OFF THE TOP BY PJ BLACK! Two and a half! Springboard Moonsault Press connects– LETHAL KICKS OUT! Black tries the 450, and Lethal out of desperation knocks Black down. Both men up top. Black blocks a superplex with a headbutt. Double axe handle to the neck by Black. Both men fight and both men crash to the mat! PJ Black misses the Placebo Effect, Black blocks the Lethal Injection! Lethal misses the Lethal Injection, Black blocks a third attempt, SUPER KICK BY Lethal! Cutter! Fourth try connects! Lethal hooks the leg and wins in 15 minutes.

Winner: Jay Lethal
Grade: ***
Thoughts: PJ Black was made to look like he could really compete against the best here, as Lethal couldn’t get much without it being countered or blocked on the first attempt. Black has some unique combinations and transitions. Put the TV Title on this guy and let him wrestle every week, wow! I really liked this match, but the result was never in question. It was a proving ground for PJ Black, who proved his worth. Not to mention we were told Lethal won last week when they previewed the Tournament’s semi-finals at Glory by Honor.

Overall Show Grade: 4/10
There’s just so much I can say, with so much going on in wrestling right now, ROH looks to just be in a bad spot. The crowds are pathetic and silent. There’s more crowd noise at joshi events. You can hear one or two fans clapping and cheering, there’s less than a couple hundred people in attendance. This show was all over the place, three weeks after Death Before Dishonor aired acting like it happened the night before (claiming so several times), failing to showcase Dragon Lee in a segment that was supposed to, having their main event match spoiled the week before, and telling us that if we watched ROH on FITE TV, we can go watch more matches on Youtube is ridiculous. The main event saved this show from being a total bomb, but the lack of crowd killed what could have been a special match between great athletes. They tried, but the crowd just didn’t care. You just can’t air these types of shows and expect anyone to care about your product and take it seriously. Last week was much better. I hope there’s better days ahead. I hope.

Shane Taylor & Lee Moriarty VS Nick Comoroto & Jacoby Watts!

Shane Taylor Promotions plans to tear through anyone and everyone in their way to the top of both ROH and AEW. Will they do just that here tonight? Or will HE, Jacoby, finally lead the Wrecking Ball to a victory?

Comoroto starts for his team, as he has before, and offers a handshake for the Code of Honor. Lee Moriarty starts and just gets in Comoroto’s face. Comoroto does his best to smile and shrug that off, and the two circle. They feel things out, but Lee KICKS a leg. Comoroto shrugs that off, too, and the two circle more. Fans chant “S, T, P! S, T, P!” Lee KICKS, applauds, and dares Comoroto to take a swing. Comoroto does, Lee avoids it, but then Comoroto blocks a kick! So Lee KNEES free! Lee fires up, runs, and forearms Comoroto, but Comoroto HEADBUTTS Lee down! Comoroto applauds and the fans join in.

Comoroto trophy lifts Lee, does some quick pumps, then SLAMS Lee down! Tag to Jacoby and this is the first time we’ve seen him do anything in weeks!

Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie speak.

La Wera Loca says over the course of the last year and a half, yes, she has had wins and losses, faced some of the best women in the world, and has nothing but respect for each and every one. But one is just… getting under her skin! Queen Aminata~! Queen? So she gave herself a crown? You can’t do that! Aminata’s not a real queen! Taya earned the iconic title of Reina De Reinas (Queen of Queens), earned the nickname “Ratings Queen,” and earned the nickname, “The Main Character.” Aminata is a fraud! And quite annoying. So it doesn’t matter that Aminata beat Taya in the tournament, this is a warning.

Taya will wipe that smug smile off Aminata’s face, and kick that ass off her throne! Watch your back. Johnny says nice one. Mr. & Mrs. TV are ready, but will Aminata just have to beat Taya again?

 

Trios Four Corner Survival: Lance Archer & The Righteous VS Action Andretti & Top Flight VS The Dark Order VS Dalton Castle & The Infantry!

Well, they’re in Las Vegas, so ROH sees last week’s Trios Triple Threat and raises it another trio! It’s a Dirty Dozen in Sin City, but who will hit the jackpot on these 25% odds?

The Peacock argues with the Murderhawk Monster, but then steps down as the teams sort out. In this kind of Fatal 4, only two teams are legal at one time, and it is The Sight to See that starts against Alex Reynolds. The Code of Honor is upheld, but then Alex trips Action at the bell! Things speed up, Action hurdles but Alex leaps over! Things keep moving, Action bypasses, and he handsprings through Alex’s hip toss!

It was fast ‘n’ furious between all four teams, and the fastest team won out! Will Action, Darius & Dante make good on some golden tickets to Arlington?

 

Six Woman Tag: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante VS Abadon, Lady Frost & Leyla Hirsch!

The Problem is already hard to solve, and now she’s got British Titanium and the Cuban Diamond by her side! Will this trio be unbreakable? Or will they have some trouble with the LEGIT trio standing against them?

The Code of Honor is upheld, though barely, and the trios sort out. Leyla starts against Marina and the fans rally up. The two circle, tie up, and Leyla waistlocks to drag Marina down. Marina fights up, Leyla has a leg, but Marina’s sturdy, so Leyla lets off. They reset, knuckle lock, and Marina slips around to trip Leyla. Marina ties the legs up, floats to a headlock, but Leyla slips out the back to a waistlock. They go around, Leyla is a backpack as Marina stands up. Marina leans forward to dump Leyla off, but Leyla holds on to drag Marina down into body scissors! Marina fights free and the fans cheer the technical exchange.

The two reset and go again. Marina trips Leyla to a cover, ONE! Leyla goes to sweep but Marina jumps over! Marina pats little Leyla on the head, but that pisses Leyla off! Leyla trips Marina, rains down forearms, then she gets around to facelock. Leyla brings Marina over, Abadon tags in, and the fans fire up as the two double whip. Drop toehold then SENTON! Abadon hurries to cover, TWO! Abadon keeps Marina from her team and rains down fists! Marina gets free, goes for a leg but Abadon slips away. Abadon goes for an arm, wrenches and wristlocks, but Marina rolls. Abadon wrangles her, Marina fights up and rolls to her feet.

Abadon wrangles Marina again, using power to get the better of the technician. And then Abadon BITES Marina’s arm! The ref reprimands and Marina breaks free! Thankfully Marina’s gear has sleeves. Abadon backs off and Frost tags in. Marina tags Diamante, and these two run up. Frost wheelbarrows to arm-drag, then dodges Diamante to handspring and RANA! Diamante ends up in the corner,. Frost tags Abadon then CHOPS Diamante. Abadon throws hands, brings Diamante around, and ROCKS her with forearm after forearm! Diamante kicks low but Abadon HELL STABS! Abadon whips, Diamante reverses, and Marina gets a cheap shot in!

Abadon shrieks at Marina, but Diamante CLUBS Abadon down! Diamante stomps a mudhole into Abadon, lets off as the ref counts, and then tags Windsor. Windsor fires off hands on Abadon, then brings her around to bump Abadon off buckles. Windsor whips corner to corner, runs up, but into a BOOT! Windsor just huffs ‘n’ puffs and comes back! Windsor blocks boots, puts Abadon in ropes, and DRAPING NECKBREAKERS! Cover, TWO! Windsor CLUBS Abadon again and again, then drags her up. Tag to Marina, then snapmare for Abadon. Marina uses Windsor as a weapon, scoop SLAM on the legs!

Powerful teamwork from this trio, and we know Windsor gets a big match tomorrow night on AEW Rampage against Toni Storm. Will Iron Will Windsor steal the spotlight from the Leading Lady this close to Forbidden Door? Will all three of these women be primed for title opportunities as we head for Death Before Dishonor and beyond?

 

ROH World Tag Team Championships Proving Grounds: The Kingdom VS Bad Dude Tito & Che Cabrera!

Matt Taven & Mike Bennett are the only ones in the Undisputed Kingdom still holding gold, and they’ve gotta put in the work to prove they’re still worthy. Will they make sure ROH stays their kingdom? Or will the #WolfZaddies be howling to the moon as they take a bite out of the champs?

The teams sort out, Mike starts against Tito and the Code of Honor is kept. The bell rings, we’re on the clock, and Tito is all fired up. They tie up, Mike headlocks, but Tito squeezes tight before he powers out. Mike RAMS Tito, Tito asks if that’s all he’s got. Mike ROCKS Tito and headlocks him! Tito powers up to lift Mike, then powers out of the headlock. They RAM shoulders again, and Mike says okay. Try this! CHOP! Tito CHOPS back! They CHOP and CHOP and CHOP, and the fans “WOO~!” with each one! Tito CHOPS, CHOPS and CHOPS, then he CHOPS Mike down! The fans fire up, Tito runs, but Mike dropkicks the leg out!

Tag to Taven, he runs to CLOBBER Tito! Taven tells Vegas to shut up, then he CHOPS Tito to a corner. Taven whips, Tito reverses, and he catches Taven as he goes up! Taven fights free, but Tito dodges to CHOP! Tag to Che, and the Zaddies double whip to DOUBLE FLAPJACK! That had some sauce on it! Che covers, TWO! Che keeps cool, brings Taven up, but Taven puts Che in the corner. Taven CHOPS, but Che doesn’t flinch. Taven apologizes, but he kicks low. Taven whips, Che goes up and over, and he keeps moving to then FLYING SHOULDER TACKLE! Cover, TWO! Taven crawls to ropes, Che storms up, and Che brings Taven up.

Che whips, Taven holds ropes to stop himself, but Che runs in. Mike tags in before Taven DUMPS Che out, then Mike swings on Che! Che gets under, Mike comes back, but into a FLAPJACK to the floor! But Taven WRECKS Che with a dropkick! The fans cheer and Taven helps Mike into the ring. Taven tags back in, and he puts Che in the ring. Che goes to the corner, Taven runs in, but Che dodges the splash! Che grabs at Taven, Taven holds ropes, and the ref counts. Che lets off but Taven sucker punches him! Tag to Bennett, the Kingdom double whips Che to ropes. Taven hurdles, Mike ROCKS Che, then Taven hits the KICK OF THE KING! Mike covers, TWO!

The fans fire up while Mike grows frustrated. Mike drags Che up, puts him in a corner, then CHOPS! And ROCKS! And CHOPS! Repeat! Mike then mule kicks Che, snapmares, and basement dropkicks! Cover, TWO! Che stays in this but Mike drags him back up. Tag to Taven, The Kingdom double whips to a corner. Che bounces off buckles, Taven whips again but Che reverses hard! Taven hits buckles and falls, and the fans rally up! Che and Taven crawl, but Mike tags in first! Mike gets Che up, Che hops and LARIATS Mike down! Che crawls, the fans fire up, hot tag to Tito! The Bad Dude dodges Mike to UPPERCUT Taven in the corner!

Tito fires off forearms and CHOPS on Taven, but Mike runs up! Tito ROCKS Mike! Taven swings, Tito wrenches to a SPINEBUSTER! Mike swings, but into a BLUE THUNDER onto Taven! Tito covers Mike, TWO!! Mike survives but Tito hauls him back up. Fireman’s carry, but Mike fires elbows! Tito ELBOWS Mike back, then wrenches to a SKY HIGH! Cover, Taven breaks it! Che gets in and he TOSSES Taven out! Tito brings the straps down, Che goes up! Electric Chair Lift, but Taven SHOVES Che to the apron!! Mike slips free, fireman’s carries, DEATH VALLEY DRIVER, and JUST THE TIP of the knee!

Taven goes up, Mike reels Tito in, HAIL MARY PILEDRIVER!! Cover, The Kingdom wins!

Winners: The Kingdom, by pinfall (denies the Wolf Zaddies a title opportunity)

Taven says this belt is his girl, he makes love to it every night! No one takes Taven’s girl from him! Mike says it doesn’t matter who you put against them, The Kingdom IS the best tag team in the world! But will there come a time when a tag team does come along and takes these titles away from them? Or will these titles always be undisputed?


My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here with it clocking in at an hour and 11 minutes. Surprisingly little on the promo side, with just Taya calling out Aminata for a match. Taya will definitely lose to build Aminata up towards her title match with Athena, which probably happens at Death Before Dishonor. Billie and Velvet each have momentum going into their inevitable TV title match, and it was great to see Moone back after her tournament appearance. And good Six Woman Tag, real good teamwork from the Heels in getting the win. Also, didn’t realize until double checking on Windsor’s finisher name, she is Will Ospreay’s wife, the “missus” he refers to so often.

Good tag match from Shane Taylor Promotions VS Comoroto & Watts, and of course STP won out. The whole story of Comoroto & Watts is their dysfunction because Watts puts himself above everything. But I do like that Watts is getting more and more involved as the weeks go by, so maybe at some point, Watts actually does do something meaningful in a match. Maybe. I’m a bit surprised Adora lost to Harley but I suppose Harley’s been losing plenty on AEW, she has to get something at some point.

Great stuff in the Trios Fatal 4. Castle joining up with The Infantry was certainly fun, but I was a little surprised Action & Top Flight won. This does help them keep pace with Shane Taylor Promotions as that rivalry gets going via AEW, but I thought Dark Order was gonna be the ones to get going again. Well, there’s still time before Death Before Dishonor, so they can hold many other matches to determine #1 contenders. And while The Wolf Zaddies got a good showing against The Kingdom, of course The Kingdom won the Proving Grounds match. The story, slow moving as it is, will of course be Menard & Parker getting their shot, probably at Death Before Dishonor, and there’s still a good chance The Kingdom retains. Depends on if TK cares about The Undisputed Kingdom’s story where Adam Cole wants Wardlow to protect all their titles. Feels like that moment passed, to be honest.

My Score: 8.6/10

Queen Aminata VS Mazzerati!

The One and Only African Woman in Wrestling is chasing the ROH Women’s World Championship, and she’s looking to keep up the momentum. Will she still be primed to challenge Athena? Or will she be run over by a #FemaleWithAttitude?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the two circle. The fans rally up, the two tie up, and Aminata powers Mazzerati back to a corner. The ref counts, Aminata lets off, and the two reset. They circle, the fans rally, and the two tie up. Aminata powers Mazzerati back again, but Mazzerati turns it around to put Aminata in the corner. The ref counts and Mazzerati lets off with a push. The fans still rally behind Aminata as she storms back up. They tie up, Aminata waistlocks and she SLAMS Mazzerati! Aminata scuffs Mazzerati, gets her up and snap suplexes! Emphasis on snap! Mazzerati flounders, Aminata storms up and brings her around.

Aminata suplexes, but Mazzerati avoids the gourd buster! Aminata runs up but into a SOBAT! Leg scissor roll, but Aminata ducks the buzzsaw! GERMAN SUPLEX! Mazzerati flounders and the fans rally up. Aminata sees Mazzerati on ropes and she runs in, BOOT WASH! Mazzerati flops to the apron and Aminata waits for her to sit back up. Aminata says one more time, and she runs side to side. BOOT WASH!! Aminata hopes Athena saw that. Aminata goes out and the fans rally up again. Mazzerati dangles, but Aminata DROPKICKS her down! “That’s what I do.” Aminata references the World’s Strongest Man as she gets Mazzerati back in.

The fans fire up and Aminata says hold on, fans, she’s on this. Aminata storms back in, Mazzerati fires off forearms and backhands! Aminata just DOUBLE CHOPS her down! Aminata hauls Mazzerati up to Alabama Lift, and AIR RAID CRASH! Cover, Aminata wins!

Winner: Queen Aminata, by pinfall

The Queen brushes herself off, she’s looking clean going towards the title! Will she be the one to finally knock The Fallen Goddess off her throne?

 

Backstage interview with Dalton Castle.

Lexy Nair is with The Peacock, who looks like he’s about to explode. She asks him about his ROH World Television Championship match with Kyle Fletcher. Castle finally breathes as he says sorry. What? Well, he says his therapist feels it is best to just get it all out. So he is sorry, he was just so focused on Johnny TV the last few months that he didn’t consider what he was putting Lexy through. That is not him. He was running hot and his is cool, because he is right where he needs to be. He is going for the ROH World TV Championship. But then Johnny TV & Taya Valkyrie barge in, accusing Castle of stealing Johnny’s sunglasses!

Give ’em back, you sticky fingered filcher! Or was it Lexy? Castle says their fight is over, he has no qualm with them. Wait, is that the right word? Qualm? Qualm. Quaaaaalm. Yes, fine, that’s the word! But Johnny wants his sunglasses! Castle says he did not take Johnny’s sunglasses, he is not mad with Johnny, but this is a major distraction ahead of his title match. Castle is gonna beat Kyle Fletcher, take the title, and then he’s got some big plans. Oh, really? Well, Johnny has even bigger plans! Yeah but Castle’s are big. How big? Like… this big? Footlong? Taya says she’s seen bigger. Show ’em, Johnny! He gestures that his plans are TWICE as big!

Castle says it gets bigger! So does Johnny’s! They go full wingspan, then go the full interview area! Those are really big. Huge even. But will any of these big plans work out? Or is this a case of overcompensating?

 

ROH World Television Championship: Kyle Fletcher VS Dalton Castle!

The Protostar promises to be the best to ever hold this title, and that would include beating former champions like The Peacock. Will the Aussie Arrow topple Dalton Castle? Or will we have a new star of ROH TV?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who shines in the spotlight!

Kyle hears the fans rallying for Castle, and he paces around. The Code of Honor is not upheld as Kyle kicks Castle’s hand away, and the bell rings. The two circle, feel things out, and they knuckle lock. Castle puts Kyle on ropes, but he lets off cleanly. The fans continue to rally as the two reset and circle. They feel things out to another knuckle lock, then Castle waistlocks. Kyle grabs ropes, the ref counts, and Castle lets go at 4. Kyle then shoves Castle! Castle runs up to put Kyle on ropes! Kyle flails out to the apron and Castle lets off, shouting “I don’t like being pushed!” Kyle stays cool while Castle gets all riled up.

Kyle fist bumps a few fans but leaves one guy hanging before going back to the ring. The ref has Castle stay back, the fans rally up, and Kyle takes his time on the outside. But Castle chases him! Kyle slips back into the ring, Castle slides back in, and Castle ducks a lariat to spin, LARIAT, KNEE and DDT! Kyle scrambles outside and the fans fire up! Kyle is frustrated but Castle waits on him this time. The ring count starts, Kyle stands at 4 of 20, but then Castle goes out. Kyle leads Castle on another chase, but Castle blocks the haymaker to ROCK Kyle! Castle runs in, is put on the apron, and Kyle runs to CALF KICK Castle down!

Kyle flexes and talks trash while the fans are torn. Kyle grins then goes out after Castle, to BOOT him against railing! Castle slumps halfway into the front row, then staggers back. Kyle brings Castle around to run and RAM into railing! Kyle flexes, the fans are torn, but he fist bumps the same lady from before. Kyle goes back to Castle while the fans rally up. Kyle puts Castle in the ring, but then Castle kicks back! Kyle goes for the bad arm, Castle powers him to ropes, and the ref calls the break. Kyle lets off, but then HOTSHOTS the bad arm! Castle falls, Kyle storms back in, and Kyle snarls as he stomps Castle down!

Castle writhes, Kyle paces, then Kyle stomps him again! Castle goes to a corner, Kyle runs up to body shot! Kyle grins as he grinds a forearm into Castle’s face, then CHOPS! The fans still rally for Castle but Kyle talks smack on those fans. Kyle says deuces, but Castle CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS! And CHOPS again! Castle swings, Kyle dodges to MACHINE GUN CHOP! And he stomps a mudhole in! The ref counts, Kyle lets off to talk more trash on fans. Kyle snarls, has a cut on his eyebrow but ignores it as he brings Castle up.

The fans fire up and Castle is feeling it! Castle storms back up on Kyle, then drags him up. Castle reels Kyle back into the Alabama but Kyle fights back! Kyle CLUBS Castle with elbows and gets free. Kyle goes to a corner, Castle rises and runs in. Kyle dodges, comes back, but Castle goes for the Alabama! Kyle gets free to the apron and he ROCKS Castle! Kyle goes up and up, but Castle trips him up! The fans fire up as Kyle is stuck on the top rope!

Castle goes to the apron, runs in, JUMPING KNEE! Kyle flops all the way to the floor! The fans fire up and high-five with Castle before he goes back to Kyle. Castle says this is his! But he swings into a half nelson! HALF ‘N’ HALF to the floor! The ring count is climbing while Castle writhes! Kyle leaves him behind, and we’re at 10 of 20! Castle rises, drags himself up, and the fans rally behind him. Castle drags himself in at 13 of 20, but Kyle snarls and runs up, BOOT!! Then suplex, BRAINBUSTER!! Cover, TWO!! Castle shocks Kyle and then Kyle shouts in anger! The fans fire up as Castle flails and reaches out for Kyle.

Kyle says this is The Peacock, huh? Kyle takes aim and then reels Castle in. But Castle fights the lift! Alabama Lift! But Kyle fights that! Castle still tries, but Kyle fights again! They go back and forth, and Castle spins! But Kyle sunset flips through! TWO!! Castle escapes, Kyle reels him back in, but into an Alabama Lift! Kyle sunset flips, Castle sits on it, TWO!!!

JACKKNIFE BRIDGE, TWO!!! Kyle escapes, spins Castle, and has the PILEDRIVER!! Cover, KYLE WINS!

Winner: Kyle Fletcher, by pinfall (still ROH World Television Champion)

The Peacock put everything he had into this, but it was not enough to break the Aussie Arrow! Will the Protostar prove he is THE star of ROH Television?

 

Jacoby Watts & Nick Comoroto VS The Infantry w/ Trish Adora!

While HE has been trying to help the Wrecking Ball change his ways for the better, HE hasn’t been so much a partner as a glorified manager. But will HE, Jacoby, have no choice but to help Comoroto tonight? Or will it be back to Boot Camp for the both of them?

The Code of Honor is honored and Comoroto starts against Carlie Bravo. The fans rally as the two circle, and Bravo gets an “OORAH!” from the fans. Bravo and Comoroto tie up, and Comoroto powers Bravo to a corner. The ref counts. Comoroto lets off with a pat to Bravo’s head. Bravo says no he did not! Bravo and Comoroto reset, tie up, and Bravo headlocks. Comoroto powers up to lift Bravo with one hand! Comoroto powers out but Captain Shawn Dean tags in. Bravo BOOTS Comoroto, Comoroto takes a swing on Dean but Dean dodges! The Infantry then DOUBLE HIP TOSS Comoroto! DOUBLE FIST DROP! Dean covers, ONE!!

Dean hurries up, dodges Comoroto, then eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto runs in, Dean dumps him out! But Comoroto powers up to skin the cat! The fans cheer that freakish athleticism, but Dean DROPKICKS Comoroto down! The fans fire up, Dean stomps Comoroto to a corner. Dean runs corner to corner but Jacoby is in the way! Dean swings on Jacoby, but Comoroto CLOBBERS Dean! Cover, ONE, but Comoroto rains down fists! Comoroto dribbles Dean off the mat, then cheers on Jacoby.

Comoroto runs up, Bravo GAMANGIRIS! Bravo goes up to CROSSBODY! A rough landing but he still takes Comoroto down! Bravo then dodges Comoroto to JUMP KNEE! Bravo brings Comoroto around, tag during the TORNADO DDT! Dean says it’s time, and they get Comoroto up! “OORAH!” Bravo runs but Jacoby gets a cheap shot in! So now he chooses to do something? He gets a DOUBLE SUPERKICK for it that sends his sunglasses flying! The fans fire up but Comoroto is upset what they did to his mentor! Comoroto DOUBLE LARIATS The Infantry! Comoroto makes sure Jacoby is okay, then asks for guidance.

The Infantry DOUBLE SUPERKICK Comoroto! Then Bravo hits a SCISSOR KICK, and Dean hits the FLYING SPLASH! Cover, The Infantry wins!

Winners: The Infantry, by pinfall

Comoroto almost unleashed the Freak Beast, but Jacoby was a distraction! What will it take for this team to actually feel like a team? As for The Infantry, will Dean & Bravo march their way to a rematch with The Kingdom?

 

Lee Johnson speaks.

“Now here we are again. Another win streak with absolutely nothing to show for it. Fletcher. I saw your match tonight. And that was a really nice win, by the way. But seeing as I’m on a nice little win streak, seeing as you have something that I want, what do you say? One more match, mee and you, for that TV-” But then in steps Fletcher. He was just ready to leave here and he couldn’t help but hear what must be Big Shotty with Kyle’s name in his mouth, again. Feels like deja vu. How long ago was it that they were last standing here? It took two short months for Lee to forget what happens when you disrespect The Protostar!

And as far as the challenge goes, Kyle has beat Lee twice in the past six months. So Lee can get his ass to the back of the line! Lee says Kyle might be right about that, but Lee thinks he can beat Kyle twice in one night! So what does Kyle say? Two Outta Three Falls! Oh, Lee thinks he can take this? Well, Kyle has been getting bored with the level of competition around here. So purely just to test himself, Kyle accepts. And then he will prove who he says he is, and why Lee will always be who he is. Kyle pushes past Lee to leave, but Lee has his shot. Can Big Shotty shoot down the Aussie Arrow twice in one night to finally have some gold?

 

ROH Women’s World Television Championship Proving Grounds: Billie Starkz VS Zamaya!

Athena’s Minion is following in her footsteps, undefeated since the start of the tournament that ultimately crowned her the inaugural ROH Women’s World TV Champion! Will she stay spotless going into the Summer? Or will she fall at the feet of The Mighty One?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and Billie “kicks dirt” at Zamaya. Zamaya eggs Billie on, the two tie up, and Billie waistlocks. Zamaya breaks that, but Billie trips her to throw her down! Billie slaps around Zamaya’s Bull Nakano hair then scuffs her. Billie reels Zamaya in but Zamaya fights the suplex! Billie CLUBS away on Zamaya, but Zamaya wrenches out. Billie whips Zamaya to a corner, Zamaya comes back but Billie spins her to a cravat and KNEE SMASH! The fans rally while Billie grins, and she drags Zamaya up. Billie half nelsons, then fishhooks towards the chicken wing. But Zamaya fires off elbows and gets free!

Billie still gets around again, and she GERMAN SUPLEXES! Billie roars while Zamaya staggers to a corner. Billie storms up to stomp Zamaya, tells the ref to leave her alone, and she “kicks dirt” again. Billie goes corner to corner but Zamaya moves, so Billie stops on the attack. Billie is mad with the ref, goes out after Zamaya, but Zamaya ROCKS her! And ROCKS her again! Zamaya whips Billie, Billie reverses and Zamaya hits barriers! Billie sends Zamaya back into barriers, then snarls as she storms around. Billie stomps away on Zamaya, drags her up, and puts her in the ring. The fans rally as Billie storms after Zamaya again.

Billie grins, brings Zamaya up, but Zamaya fights the suplex to shove and throat chop! But then Billie gets Zamaya with a FLATLINER to ropes! Zamaya staggers, Billie hits a NECKBREAKER off her knee! Zamaya staggers up, into the HEEL KICK! Billie then goes up the corner, aims and SWANTON BOMBS! Cover, Billie wins!

Winner: Billie Starkz, by pinfall (denies Zamaya a title opportunity)

That makes 10-0 for Billie, and she crosses off another contender. But wait! Red Velvet slips into the ring! The fans fire up as The Chef rushes up, but Billie runs away! Billie denies Red Velvet her revenge for last week’s ambush, but Velvet says Billie must be scared. And then wait! Aminata sneaks up behind Billie on the ramp! Billie turns around, and Aminata THROWS her into the ring! Velvet gets on Billie with furious fists! The fans fire up but Billie turns things around! It is a scrap but Velvet’s hands hit harder! Billie gets up, swings, but Velvet SPINEBUSTERS! The refs rush in to stop this but Aminata says keep on cooking, Velvet!

The refs finally separate the two and Billie hurries away. Aminata stands with Velvet, when and where will Velvet get her shot at Billie’s gold?

 

Trios Triple Threat: The Dark Order VS Johnny TV, Cole Karter & Griff Garrison VS The Iron Savages!

Now this is a BIG match right here! The AEW and ROH World Trios titles are unified so everyone’s aiming for The Bang Bang Gang! Will Evil Uno, Alex Reynolds & John Silver finally make good on their resurgence? Will Taya’s man help Maria’s boys be #TVReady? Or will Jacked Jameson, Bulk Bronson & Beefcake Boulder make good on their promise to take what they want?

As the Savages make their entrance, Jameson has the mic to tell the “nerd in the back” to shut the music off so he can talk, or else they’re going to #TiddyCity! Jameson then tells the fans to shut up. Las Vegas used to be a cool city full of cool people, the OG Tiddy City! But now Vegas is full of soft wussies like these fans who are too scared to get a dance from a lady, because they’re all nervous little virgins! That includes Bobby Cruz! What? But he’s a father… Jameson says they’ll bring Sin City to the world! They’re sippin’ sauce, livin’ hoss, and yes, taken everyone to TIDDY CITY! But then The Dark Order make their entrance and Vegas fires up!

Vegas loves “JOHNNY HUNGY!” as the teams sort out. There are only two teams legal at once, and Jacked Jameson steps up to Silver just to show who’s really freakin’ jacked! But the fans still like Silver better! The Code of Honor is skipped since we’re getting this pose off and the bell rings. Jameson flexes, the fans boo. Silver flexes, the fans cheer. Jameson gets fed up, kicks low, then whips Silver to ropes. Silver ducks ‘n’ dodges then UPPERCUTS Jameson down! The fans fire up while Jameson scrambles away, tag to Bronson! Bronson runs up but Silver trips him into buckles! Tag to Uno and he brings Bronson up to CHOP!

Uno CLUBS Bronson, headlocks, but Bronson powers out. Bronson drops to then CLOBBER Uno! Bronson mocks the Dark Order claw, then CLUBS Uno! Tag to Boulder, and Bronson says it’s time to go to TIDDY CITY~! But Uno turns things around, Bronson is sent into that hairy valley! Then Uno shoves Bronson into Boulder, who staggers into a tag from Johnny. Uno says wait, then he DUMPS Boulder out! Johnny runs, slides under Uno and then DIVES onto the Savages! Karter & Griff CLOBBER Uno! They now mock the Dark Order claw while Johnny drags Uno out. Johnny kicks Uno, kisses Taya, and the fans boo.

Johnny brings Uno around, MOONLIGHT DRIVE on the floor! Johnny puts Uno back in, covers, but Silver breaks it! Johnny JUMP KICKS Silver away! Johnny stalks Uno to the corner, fires body shots, then tags in Griff. They mug Uno, Griff stomps in a mudhole, then he tags Johnny back in. Johnny ROCKS Uno, BOOTS him, then CHOKES him on ropes! The ref counts, Taya mocks Uno, and Karter gets a cheap shot! Johnny tags Karter in, they mug Uno, and Karter fires body shot after body shot. Karter ROCKS Uno, tags Griff, and they mug Uno. Griff CLUBS Uno, tags Karter, but Uno fights them off with forearms!

The fans rally, Uno heads for his corner but Karter & Griff get him first. They whip, he wrenches but they both break free. Uno blocks Karter’s kick, hands it to Griff, and then hits a NECKBREAKER on Karter! Uno then dodges Griff, hot tag to Reynolds! Reynolds dodges Griff to BOOT Johnny! Reynolds dodges Griff, LARIATS Karter, then swings on Griff. Griff gets around to waistlock but Reynolds bucks the O’Conner to BOOT Griff down! The fans fire up as Reynolds underhooks Griff, but Johnny hits a FLYING CHUCK! Karter fireman’s carries, Griff runs up, BOOT O’ DOOM! Cover, Bronson breaks it!

Johnny runs up but Bronson runs Johnny over! Griff BOOTS Bronson but Boulder tags in to BOOT Griff! But Karter KNEES Boulder! Jameson LARIATS Karter! Jameson flexes, ducks the Shining Wizard, but the BLINDSIDE WIZARD hits! Johnny drags Griff & Karter up, and they flex! They’re mocking the Savages now, but then Boulder TRIPLE CROSSBODIES!! The fans rally up as Bronson & Boulder get Karter into position. Bronson goes up, Boulder lifts him, but Reynolds springboards in to ELECTRIC CHAIR CUTTER!! The fans fire up and Reynolds hot tags Silver! Boulder runs up, into a drop toehold! Silver & Uno BOOT GAMANGIRI COMBO!

Silver hoists Boulder up to GERMAN SUPLEX!! The fans are thunderous but Jameson tags in! Silver dodges, Uno gets in and says STOP! Then he DECKS Jameson! Uno BLASTS Johnny, Reynolds BLASTS Karter and Silver BLASTS Griff! The fans fire up for The Dark Order, Reynolds drags Jameson up. Uno helps lift Jameson and Silver runs, PENDULUM BOMB! Cover, Dark Order wins!

Winners: The Dark Order, by pinfall

Vegas is all about the Numbers, and it was 1-2-3 for Uno, Tres & Quatro! Will they finally take over the Trios Division? Or will they fail to bring down The Bang Bang Gang?


My Thoughts:

A very good night for ROH at exactly an hour long. Great win for Aminata to open the night, and good appearance by her and Velvet after Billie won hers. We’re still doing the slow burn to Aminata VS Athena and Velvet VS Billie but those are the obvious title matches and will be great stuff. Shafir of course gets a win and she could be lurking in the background, waiting for a title shot after the Aminata-Velvet VS Athena-Billie stuff settles. And while the Trios Triple Threat was a fairly fun main event, I wouldn’t have made it the main event, the ROH World TV Championship was a better match. But great win for The Dark Order, I really do hope they make something of their revitalization after months of not doing anything.

Really good tag match from The Infantry VS Comoroto & Jacoby, but of course it’s another case of Jacoby somehow, someway, not tagging in. He did do a bit more this time, and a cheap shot that basically gets him knocked out was a clever way to cost the team. And then back to the ROH World TV Championship, another really fun promo from Castle with Johnny & Taya before the match, the match itself was great, and I should’ve figured Kyle would retain. It seems they had the TV title match be early in the show so we could also get Kyle and Lee in a promo together instead of waiting on that. But hey, a Best 2 Out of 3 Falls is going to be awesome stuff, and this might be where Lee gets the win to take the title, it really depends on where the Don Callis Family story is going.

My Score: 8.7/10
