NEW ROH Coverage

Matt Davis checks in with his look at this week’s edition of Ring Of Honor featuring Joe Hendry, Flip Gordon, and more!

Since 2002 we have created excellence together.” – Jay Lethal

Welcome to Ring of Honor Television! We open this week at the Summer Supercard, showing Flip Gordon attacking Tracy Williams with a kendo stick before his match for the TV Title in Toronto. We cut to Global Wars in Chicago when Gordon pinned Williams in a Chicago Street Fight with an F5 into opened chairs. Ian Riccaboni welcomes us to the show and tells us the main event will be “Hotsauce” Tracy Williams against his rival Flip Gordon in a No Disqualification match! If you’ve read my Glory By Honor Review, they discuss the match, but tonight we will see it in full! Quinn McKay tells us that next week we will see Joe Hendry challenge Shane Taylor for the ROH TV Title from Honor United.

There is a promo detailing Shane Taylor’s contract situation and recaps his thoughts about Ring of Honor failing to promote him. Come on Shane, it’s not personal, they aren’t promoting anyone! Cut to Taylor walking around backstage trying to leave an arena being followed by reporters and cameramen wanting to discuss his contract and next challenge. First, Taylor walks into a door that clearly says “Exit Only”,  and says “Of course they wouldn’t let me in” then turns to have a press conference. Then one of the people, holding up a cell phone, asks him who his next challenger is to his “world title” in one of the most rehearsed lines I’ve ever heard. Taylor says he’s going to sit down with ROH again to renegotiate his contract because they tried to screw him by adding Dragon Lee to the match but he still retained. The next question was since he’s a free agent, where will he be going next. Taylor says it doesn’t matter, he could go anywhere. He says if ROH wants him to defend the championship they need to pay him more. He wants to be featured and promoted more. A security guard breaks up the impromptu segment and tells Taylor the casino wants him to leave because people can’t be recording in the casino. That was one of the worst backstage promos I’ve ever seen, and this whole storyline is garbage. Strip him of the championship!

After a break we cut to a segment between Joe Hendry and Dalton Castle at Death Before Dishonor, where Castle reveals a mimosa under a cone in the middle of the ring without any explanation of what we are watching. Quinn McKay is standing in the ring dressed like a ringmaster of a circus. Watch this and disagree with me. Castle tells us the mimosa was made with real Equadorian orange, French champagne, and bubbles that were put in by Shaoudi monks in Napal and takes a sip to a cheer. Castle asks how Hendry will top that? Hendry says that will be tough, even though he believes in the tag team even though Castle is second best. Hendry says he’s going to host karaoke. The song about Dalton Castle is horrible and I’m not even going to type it out. Hendry attacks The New Boys as Castle exits the ring. What the absolute trash was that? Cut to McKay with Riccaboni telling us that got out of hand as she introduces the next match.

Joe Hendry vs Dom Kubrik

This is an exclusive television match featuring Kubrik already in the ring as Hendry signs an autograph for a child in his fathers arm at ringside. Hendry offers a handshake as the bell sounds.

We are told Hendry have an excellent amateur background as they tangle up as the match begins. About a minute in Hendry tries a Hendry-Lock, as were told that Kurt Angle bestowed the ankle lock to Hendry. A shoulderblock tackle drops Kubrik, reverses a leapfrog as Kubrik reverses an armdrag into a counter attack. Back elbow by Hendry gets two! Stalling showboat vertical suplex gets two by Hendry! We are told that this is basically an exhibition match for the Scottish singing star, great way to put over your lesser talent guys! We are told Santino Marrella trained Kubrik. At ringside, Hendry signs another autograph as the fans rips it up. Commentator snarks “That’s at least $12 on eBay that he just ripped up.” Highlight of the match so far. Kubrik drops Hendry face first into the turnbuckle! Superkick! Two!  Kubrik hits a move that looks like the Black Plague for two, into a guillotine choke! Hendry powers out and tries a suplex but Kubrik drops again ans Hendry breaks in the corner. Hendry with a suplex countering another try. Hard DDT by Hendry, butterfly into a shoulderbreaker across the knee, hard lariat hooks the leg and Hendry gets two! We are reminded next week Hendry challenges for the TV Title next week. High knee by Kubrik! Crossbody rolled through into a fallaway powerslam! Ankle Lock reversed, but Hendry steps over and locks it in for the submission in 5 minutes.

Winner: Joe Hendry
Grade: **
Thoughts: A highlight squash for Joe Hendry. He has a crisp style and a great look and character which immediately draws you to him. He’s like a mix of early Nigel McGuinness and Drew Gulak. He will be in WWE before long. He has a unique creative offense and has good control of his offense. The story that Angle bestowed the Ankle Lock to him is great. Impressive victory as he heads into next week. #IBelieveInJoeHendry 

After a break we are brought backstage with Jenny Rose as she discusses that she has had championship matches before, but now shes pissed off because Angelina Love finally got what she wanted. She says ever since she came here it’s been dirty tactics and disrespect, and of course shes a legend but she’s not honorable. In a cringy moment, her promo is cut off and we only hear her voice as we are shown a graphic for next weeks show. We are told next week Angelina Love will defend in a triple threat against Jenny Rose and Sumie Sakai. Can we talk about this week please? Riccaboni talks about Rhett Titus and Kenny King, the former ROH Tag Team Champions, have been feuding as King has been targeting his former partner at every angle.

Mark Haskins vs Rhett Titus  
“Global Wars: Espectacular: Night 1”
Dearborn, Michigan

Begins mid-match, Haskins knocks Titus down and goes up top, missing a stomp. Titus catches a boot in the corner, sloppy Super Facebuster off the top by Titus gets two and a half! I miss The Romantic Touch. Titus with a kick to the chest, mid kick, and an elevated DDT and hooks the leg and Haskins kicks out again! Running boots in the corner stun Haskins, Titus tries a tilt-a-whirl but Haskins reverses into a grapevine into a high angle deathlock and Mark Haskins wins by submission

Winner: Mark Haskins
Grade: N/A
Thoughts: For the one minute we saw, Titus looks like he has looked like for a decade with sloppy offense and zero compelling character traits. Haskins almost breaks Titus’s hip with the high angle submission. Like last week, can’t grade a match you see a small fraction of.

Backstage after the match, Haskins talks to Titus about their “scrap” and Titus says it was just what the doctor ordered. Kenny King walks up and taunts Titus. He criticizes Titus for tapping out, telling him he used to see him pass out before he tapped out (it’s true) when they used to roll. He asks Titus if he should be at home breastfeeding his son as Titus laughs and quips that at least he didn’t get knocked out walking into a camera and walks away.

I’m intrigued by this because these two have great chemistry as a team. Kenny King was the best thing that ever happened to Rhett Titus’s career. Will we eventually see a reunion of the All Night Express?

Backstage with Jeff Cobb as he praises ROH’s return to the United Kingdom, as he prepares for his ROH World Championship match with Rush. He says Rush might be a bull, but so is he, and it’s going to be two bulls colliding as he becomes champion.

In the ring at Death Before Dishonor Fallout we cut to The Kingdom with Matt Taven talking about how seven years ago he joined Ring of Honor because that’s where the best were. He said he tried every day to be the best, and he’s done it all, winning the Top Prospect Tournament, winning the TV Title, winning the Tag Titles and gives a shout out to Mike Bennett that gets a pop (Please come back Mike!), to winning the Six Man Tag Title belts with his two best friends on three occasions, and that all that was nice but since he was a boy he to wanted to be ROH World Champion! He said at Madison Square Garden and in front of tens of thousands of fans all his dreams came true. He said he’s held the title knowing the legacy it has as the most prestigious championships in wrestling. He said everytime he defended it, he would leave it all in the ring which got a cheer and a “Thank you Taven” chant. He thanks the fans. He says he’s at a crossroads, and people have been talking about what happens now. He said when he came here ROH was the best innovative best wrestling company on the planet and he still believes that and he is going no where. The only second Grand Slam champion in company history is staying in Ring of Honor as he hugs Marseglia and O’Ryan in the ring. Commentators tell us he will go down as one of the most underrated champions of all time.

Backstage, Angelina Love and Mandy Rose discuss how bitter Love was that she had to defend the championship next week and complained it took her three months to get an opportunity at the title, but now everyone is lining up to face her. Mandy Rose says its the Age of the Allure and no one is taking the championship from them and ends with a chalk on chalkboard nauseating “Bye” and I’d rather have my eyes pecked out by seagulls than ever listen to that again.

“Hotsauce” Tracy Williams vs Flip Gordon
Death Before Dishonor Fallout Tour
Las Vegas, Nevada

Not sure of the difference between a “television exclusive”, and a match taped for television. This was taped the night after Death Before Dishonor, and begins right away with Williams attacking Gordon on the stage as fisticuffs fly! Gordon cracks a kendo stick across his ribs and back! Gordon chases Williams towards the ring and cracks him again! The welts already appear on his back!

Gordon digging under the ring and grabs a chair at ringside, Williams dives to the outside and splashes it into Gordon’s face! Chops and elbows by Williams! Williams back ripped open already. Butterfly suplex on the outside! Williams rolls Gordon into the ring as Gordon drops Williams face first into the corner! Knife edged chop by Gordon. Williams reverses and gets a chop of his own! Gutwrench toss, to the top rope, Williams rips Gordon off the top with a snap superplex for two!

Williams aggressively all over Gordon as Gordon rolls to the outside and Williams jumps on him again! Gordon reverses a suplex outside and posts Hotsauce! We are told this has been boiling since Gordon joined VE, and dislocated his elbow on a 450 attempt on Williams. Gordon stalks and haunts Williams against the barricade. Gordon tries a suplex but it’s blocked. Gordon tries to whip Williams into the steel but Williams reverses and Gordon jumps over the barricade into the crowd! Williams tries running..and catches an elbow in the face. That was poorly executed, what was plan? Were you going to run knee first into the barricade if Gordon didn’t elbow you? Springboard tornado DDT plants Williams as we fade to commercial!

We are back with both men in the ring, with Gordon swinging a chair. He misses! Williams grabs it, misses, superkick by Gordon! Gordon with a swinging neckbreaker on the chair and gets two! Williams playing possum and drives the chair into Gordon’s ribs. He drops the chair outside, then goes get it again. Jumping knee in the corner! On top, Gordon blocks a superplex. Gordon reverses and drops Williams groin first on the top rope! Gordon tries a full steam charge but stops, stalls, and baseball slides Williams in the back, low risk. He grabs the chair again as both men inside. Gordon opens it and tries to brainbuster Williams into the open chair but Williams blocks. Springboard kick by Gordon! On the top, Williams catches Gordon and all hell breaks loose when Williams drops Gordon with a sitout suplex across the open chair! Hooks the leg, two and a half! Damn! Williams tries a crossface and wrenches back, trapping the arm. Gordon drags himself to the side rope! Williams refuses to break the hold as it’s No DQ! Gordon continues to crawl and drag himself out of the ring and slips away.

Under the ring, Williams unveils another kendo stick and cracks it across Gordon’s chest and back, White Russian Legsweep adapted by The Sandman! Again across the back as it echoes across the arena (easier when it’s empty) Williams cracking it over and over Gordon up the ramp, as he breaks it across Gordon’s back. Williams tries a piledriver on the ramp but Gordon hits a low blow! Gordon with an inverted DDT as we fade to another commercial.

Back, as Gordon grabs a table from under the ring. Gordon opens the table in the ring as Williams rolling around outside. Gordon throws a chair on Williams and rolls him inside. Gordon places Williams on the table and thinks about a 450 Splash. Williams up and nails a european uppercut! Both men on the top now. Headbutt by Gordon! Gordon tries a Kinder Surprise, but Tracy launches Gordon into the barricade and the floor. Williams drops the table closed and then opens it back up half open. Running boot to Gordon on the apron! Williams drops a double axe handle and drags him onto the apron and then the top rope again. Williams with a Piledriver off the top rope through for the table for win in about 15 minutes shown!

Winner: Tracy Williams
Grade: **1/2
Thoughts: This rivalry is far from finished, but here we are with a big win for Tracy Williams and Lifeblood as the carnage continues against Villain Enterprises. Small complaint of not enough weapons for me in a No DQ match. There was a wrinkle of a No DQ match stipulation here, but overall, not a lot. Some kendo sticks, some chairs, and the one table spot that ended it. The momentum of the match was severely interrupted by two commercial breaks. I couldn’t get into the match because of them. The finish kind of came out of no where and wasn’t “built up”, at least not in what they showed. Down. Oh sorry, that’s not my gimmick.

Overall Show Grade: 5/10

Better than last week, but still had some very awkward stuff going on. That awkward segment with Joe Hendry and Dalton Castle was not introduced, and it wasn’t funny in any way. Hendry is hilarious but it really fell flat as they tried to make dick jokes and neither the crowd or I, as a viewer, cared at all. The akward segment with Jenny Rose had awful production. I’ve never seen an interview cut off as their voice continued as we were looking at graphics on screen before. The Shane Taylor storyline is TURRRRRIBLE and that whole interview was really poorly done, little things make a huge difference. We just saw NJPW strip Jon Moxley of a championship because he couldn’t defend because of inclement weather, you’re telling me you’d allow a champion to get bought out of his contract but keep the title on him? If he wants out, agree to buy him out and strip the title. It literally doesn’t make sense from a business stand point, it’s not believable and drives me insane! The TV Title could be utilized so much more with characters like PJ Black, Joe Hendry, or either of the guys in the main event. Great promo by Matt Taven. Felt real, heart felt, and the fans were invested in everything he said. Less complaints than last week, but still enough to irritate me. Until next week! #UseYourHead

ROH hears from Mark Briscoe and Eddie Kingston.

It was after Supercard of Honor when the NEW ROH World Champion and the former sat down backstage, iced up and having some cold ones. They cheer, kampai, salud, all that. Mark says they still like each other, so think about that. If this is what they do to friends, then House of Black, y’all’re in trouble. AEW Dynasty, Mark & Eddie have the wild man, Big Cope! Eddie laughs at House of Black. They think they’re crazy cuz they play in the dark. Evil SOBs, they are. But they’re in for a long night! Look what they did to each other when they’re friends! They don’t like or even respect House of Black!

Eddie respects Mark, look how he made Mark bleed! Mark likes Eddie, look what he did back! C’mon, now. Get outta here. Y’all’re on some different stuff, God bless your hearts. See y’all in St. Louis.

 

Isiah Kassidy w/ Marq Quen VS Action Andretti!

Private Party and Top Flight continue to have beef, and that’s bringing Kassidy & Quen to ROH! Brother Zay wants to get title “Shots! Shots! Shots!” but will he get the party going towards The Kingdom? Or will the Sight to See help put his team in pole position?

The bell rings, the Code of Honor is upheld, but then Zay kicks low and CLUBS away! Zay asks, “This your boy!?” The fans boo Zay but he fires forearms on Action. Zay wrenches, whips, but Action goes up and over! Action keeps moving, ducks ‘n’ dodges to tilt-o-whirl RANA! And then DROPKICK! Action kips up, the fans fire up, and Action IMPLODER TORNILLOS! Cover, TWO! Zay stays in this and Quen coaches him, but the fans rally. Action drags Zay up, UPPERCUTS him down, and then has Zay in a corner. Action CHOPS and Zay squeals! Zay goes to another corner, Action storms up to whip corner to corner.

Zay reverses, Action goes up but Zay catches him! Zay throws Action onto the ropes, right onto his runway! The fans rally and Zay runs side to side to then SHOVE Action down. Zay says work smarter, not harder. Action sits up on the floor but Zay goes out to bring him up. Zay whips Action hard into railing! Zay says they don’t teach that at school, that’s life. Zay refreshes the count, goes back for Action, but Action throws hands! Action fires forearms, Zay fires hands in return, then sends Action back into railing! Zay says “Say cheese!” then HAMMERS away on Action! Zay taunts fans, dares them to say something now, then he stomps Action.

Zay puts Action in the ring, slingshot SENTONS, then dusts off the shoes. Zay flexes, soaks up the heat, then goes after Action again. Zay snapmares, wraps on a chinlock, and vows to put Action to sleep! The fans rally as Action endures and fights up. Action throws body shots, but Zay clinches to SIDE EFFECT! Shoutout to the Hardy Boys, then Zay covers. TWO, but Zay uses his rag to CHOKE Action! The fans boo and the ref counts, but Zay lets off. Zay says he was wiping the sweat from Action’s face, but then he brings Action up to whip and ELBOW! Zay taunts the fans more, takes a bow, then goes back for Action.

Zay drags Action up, Action throws body shots again! Zay knees low, CLUBS Action, then CHOPS! The fans “WOO~!” and Action staggers to ropes. Zay wrenches and whips but Action holds ropes! Zay runs up but into a BOOT! Zay comes back, Action slides under then CLOBBERS Zay! Action CLOBBERS Zay again, wrenches, BACKBREAKER to NECKBREAKER! The fans rally while Zay bails out. Quen is there to coach Zay but Action builds speed! Action DIVES and down goes Zay! Action gets Zay in, goes up a corner, and springboards to FLYING LARIAT! Cover, TWO! Zay stays in this and Action grows frustrated.

Quen coaches Zay but Action looms over Zay. Action drags Zay up, torture racks, but Zay kicks and flails! Zay gets free, shoves Action, but Action goes up. Zay catches him again, puts Action on the apron, but then Action blocks a kick to spin Zay. Zay DRAGON WHIPS, then springboards to STUNNER! Action falls to the floor and the fans rally up. Zay blows a kiss, then slingshots up and over, to ASAI MOONSAULT! Direct hit at the ramp, and Zay checks his shoes. They’re good, so Zay puts Action in. Zay goes up, and he SWANTON BOMBS! Cover, TWO!! Action survives and Zay can’t believe it! Quen also argues, but the ref defends his count as fair.

The fans are thunderous as Action runs up on Zay, to SHOTGUN him into buckles! Zay falls, Action hurries to go up and SPLIT-LEG MOONSAULT! Cover, Action wins!

Winner: Action Andretti, by pinfall

The Sight to See proves he’s one of a kind and he ruins the party for Private Party! Will Action & Top Flight soon take aim at the Bang Bang Gang and those ROH World Six Man titles?

 

ROH hears from The Undisputed Kingdom.

Also after the action at Supercard, Matt Taven & Mike Bennett regrouped with Wardlow in the parking lot. The ROH World Tag Team Champions were still very sore after going to war with The Infantry. They feel awful, but how does “big man” Wardlow feel? He feels great. And that’s all they need to hear! Infantry, the Kingdom told you there was nothing they wouldn’t do to keep the ROH World Tag titles! And tonight, they did it all on their own! Taven says that they came back two years ago, two YEARS ago, unsure what was gonna happen next, but all they wanted was these titles. And this is Supercard, did The Infantry really think they were gonna take them?!

And now that they’ve got the big man back on board, who’s stopping them? Look at them! They are the GREATEST tag team in ROH history! And with Wardlow behind them, no one will ever beat them! They are the UNDISPUTED Kingdom! Will the War Marchine, the Maestro of Mayhem, continue to be a massive insurance policy for all of the Kingdom’s gold?

 

ROH also hears from The Infantry.

Shawn Dean & Carlie Bravo regrouped with Trish Adora backstage after Supercard, and this is what pisses them off! They were doing their thing constantly, constantly, constantly. They had Kingdom up against the ropes, they were doing their thing, and they were really winning! Nobody in this building saw that giant vanilla gorilla get in there to knock Dean’s head off? Dean calms Bravo and says it’s okay. It just proves what they’ve been saying! The Kingdom needed outside interference to stop The Infantry’s momentum! But they can’t knock Infantry off the pivot. They’ll keep moving, keep marching, keep stepping.

Yeah, Infantry took a loss tonight. But win or lose, Infantry’s up! They’ll come back better than ever! Kingdom saw what Infantry’s about! You can’t kill ’em, they’ll just keep coming! Bravo will put it like this: clearly, y’all know what it is; clearly, y’all’re nervous; clearly, The Infantry got these dudes in their feelings. Every member of that old boy band, The Pinnacle or whatever, this is whack. But have no fear, The Infantry is here, and they’re here to stay. It’ll take a lot more than that to get rid of them, do you copy that?

 

ROH hears from Billie Starkz.

ROH cameras followed the NEW ROH Women’s World Television Champion backstage as she met with Mama Starkz to show her the belt. Billie says, “I did it!” but Mama Starkz says no, she didn’t. Billie did it all wrong! She was raised better! She trained so hard for this moment, and look at herself! Yeah, she’s champion! With that neck fake out? That wasn’t funny. No, yeah, it wasn’t funny, it was a trick, she’s not hurt. Mama says Billie knows better. ROH is Ring of Honor. Billie mockingly says, “Honor, honor, honor!” She won the title! The rest of the family’s proud, right? Mama says stop it, Billie.

Mama reprimands Billie for cussing, for acting crazy, for cheating, all of it. And she’s sick of Billie hanging out with Athena, she is a bad influence. Billie says she won the title and that’s still not enough!? But then Athena’s there and they hug it out! Billie did it! She champion now! She number two, Athena number one! Athena will be Billie’s mom! Let’s go! What? The Fallen Goddess brings Billie along, are these two going to reign over ROH with iron fists?

 

Backstage interview with Lee Johnson.

Also backstage after Supercard, Lexi Nair talked with Big Shotty. That TV Championship match was certainly star-making, with Lee taking Kyle to his limit. Even though Lee fell short, that was incredible stuff, walk us through the match. Lee says he feels good, oddly. He’d been waiting for so long to have a match like that, and tonight was finally his night. He’s been working his ass off every single week, and it led to this moment. So even though he didn’t win, Lee also didn’t lose. Lee won something out there. Big Shotty keeps up the positivity, will he hit the mark the next time he gets a shot?

 

ROH hears from Kyle Fletcher.

Speaking of that TV title match, The Protostar returned backstage, and he won’t say Lee Johnson is on his level, but he is certainly closer than Kyle thought. It wasn’t personal until Lee brought up how Kyle doesn’t wanna show up to work. The reason Kyle doesn’t show up to defend his title is because he got kicked out of the country, had to go back home to Australia, had to renew his visa. And while he was sitting in a hotel room, by himself, for two WEEKS, all he wanted to do was get back here! To defend his title! And Lee had the nerve to say Kyle didn’t wanna show up? Well that’s what you get! That is what you get taking those cheap shots!

Kyle is the Protostar because he is going to be THE star one day, and that match proves it! Kyle hopes Lee Johnson never forgets it! The Aussie Arrow is getting back to work tonight, will he shoot down another contender?

 

Backstage interview with Dalton Castle & Paul Walter-Hauser.

Also after Supercard, Lexi was with The Peacock, the Emmy winner and all the Substitute Boys as they celebrated the epic battle against Johnny TV. Lexi says Castle has conquered the mountain, he says there’s no height he can’t climb, so she asks him what are his thoughts? What’re his thoughts? He can’t think! Everything hurts and tingles, but he’s never felt more alive in his life! Did you see him out there? They doubted him, took everything from him, burned it to the ground, but he rose from the ashes! He breathed TV, he fueled himself with power, and surrounded himself with some of the most talented TV people in the world!

Castle turns to Paul Walter-Hauser, him coming to Castle’s side… Does he feel that? Depends on what Castle’s asking, but yes, Paul felt something. He just wants to say, before Castle goes off on Paul’s IMDB résumé, Paul wants to say he is a lifelong fan of Castle’s. And Paul wants to say, this whole thing with Johnny, Paul had Castle’s back day one, and will continue to have his back. It was a little scary at first, he’ll admit, because Castle texted Paul, “Come hand out with me and a bunch of Boys.” Castle promised Paul a good time. Did he have a good time? Paul deleted that text conversation because it would’ve been bad if someone had read that out of context.

Castle says look at this! Look at what they’re surrounded by! Lexi says yes, she sees. Castle says there’s nothing that can stop this force! He is the drum, he is the power, they are The TV that ROH has been craving! Paul says if you’re looking for a real TV Champion, you’re looking at one right here. Castle says yes, he likes the sound of that. Now let’s go! C’mon, Boys! The flock of Boys head out and Paul asks if they’re all orphans or what. Lexi isn’t sure, can’t really talk about that on TV. Paul says okay, he’s just feeling some orphan vibes. Paul hurries after Castle, will they both look to take over ROH TV?

 

ROH hears from Mariah May.

Toni Storm’s protege was backstage after Supercard to say she can’t even believe she just made her ROH PPV debut. She actually asked for this match because on Wednesday, she lost to Thunder Rosa and let Toni down. Mariah wanted to redeem herself and make Toni proud, so she hopes Toni was watching so she could prove herself against a Stardom girl. And then Mina Shirakawa finds Mariah backstage and thanks her for coming to the ring to celebrate. Mariah is AMAZING~! Mina gives Mariah a kiss and a round of applause, and then says let’s drink a toast! Mina serves the bubbly to “The princess,” but Mina is princess, too!

The two “princesses” kampai, and drink up! Rose Gold is back together again and it feels so good, but how will the leading lady take it?

 

Mark Sterling speaks.

“Alright, I want you to take a pen and paper and write down all of your accomplishments.” Smart Mark doesn’t really wait while he describes Josh Woods: “National champion wrestler at the University of Central Florida, four-time SEC Champion, four-time All American, ROH Pure Champion, captain of the US MMA team, all this while running fight camps for the most dangerous fighters in the world because you know more than them! You have a body that can take a punch and punch back twice as hard. A ferocious in-ring style that makes opponents second guess their career choice, and a mind only focused on what’s in front of him until it’s beaten into the ground.”

Now take a look at that paper. On that paper, Woods could beat anyone in this business. Time to come off the page. Josh Woods is a Premier Athlete.

 

ROH World Television Championship Proving Ground Match: Kyle Fletcher VS Rhett Titus!

We heard from the Aussie Arrow earlier tonight so we know he’s all fired up! He wants to put in the work, but he wants others to do the same! Will Rhett remind us why he’s a former World TV Champion? Or will Kyle continue to prove why he’s The Protostar?

The Code of Honor is not upheld as Kyle kicks Rhett’s hand away, and the bell rings. The clock is ticking but Rhett goes for a leg. Kyle stays up, Rhett waistlocks, but Kyle switches to SLAM Rhett down! Kyle taunts Rhett while the fans fire up. The two reset, knuckle lock, and then Rhett headlocks. Kyle powers up and out, then he runs Rhett over! The fans are torn as Kyle poses like Jushin Thunder Liger, then he storms up as Rhett is on the apron.

My Thoughts:

A very good ROH here, but yeah, I skipped so many of these matches because sadly, this was also a post-PPV aftermath filler type episode. Still good stuff in the matches I skipped, and honestly, I am surprised Christopher Daniels won. He’s mostly been putting over other talent lately, but Karter was on his own so clearly the idea is Karter can’t win against a veteran like Daniels without cheating. And Nyla got a real good match out of Kat Von Heez, that was certainly a Lady Hoss fight. And in Zak Knight’s match, he opened with such a solid spear tackle, I really thought he could’ve just won that one fast. He still got a good match with Alvin, and a good win for Zak going into his fight with Angelo Parker.

Great fallout promos from a lot of the champions and challengers on Supercard. I really appreciate Eddie and Mark chilling after their brutal main event and the message they sent to House of Black with it, and I really liked Mama Starkz staying Face and not being happy about her daughter going Heel. I really hope next week, we get a big celebration of Athena and Billie with both titles, which will then be crashed by one or more potential challenger. Meanwhile, Castle and Walter-Hauser had a fun little segment, maybe a little more amped up and chaotic than Walter-Hauser was ready for, but yeah, Castle definitely needs to go after the TV title again.

Good promo from The Undisputed Kingdom to stay hyped with Wardlow as their insurance policy, and good response from The Infantry to keep themselves hyped even in defeat. Good promo from Sterling to hype up Woods, but it feels like The Premier Athletes are already spinning their wheels, I just don’t know what it’s going to take for the whole to be more than the sum of its parts. They are all really great in-ring wrestlers but the personalities just never seem to come across as Heels that are threats. And very good promo for Mariah and Mina to bridge the gap between Supercard and the moment they then had last night on Dynamite. I still think we should get Storm VS Mina not even for the title but for the partnership of Mariah, that’ll be some fun.

Lee Johnson had a good promo but Kyle Fletcher’s response was probably best promo of the night. I wish AEW/ROH would’ve told us Kyle was having visa problems, because then there’s no misunderstandings as to why Kyle can’t be around. If Dynamite last night showed us anything, Tony Khan needs to get it out of his head that he doesn’t know how to do worked-shoot angles without making everyone look stupid! Sure it gives Kyle some passion going into his match tonight but it shouldn’t be that way at all. Kyle and Rhett have a good match, Kyle gets a good win for it, and if Castle is up next, Kyle and Castle are going to have great promos as well as a great title match.

My Score: 8.4/10
