Ring of Honor Television on FITE TV: Episode #423

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

Showing the ending of Death Before Dishonor between Angelina Love and Kelly Klein, with Love using the Botox Injection to get the win and the Women of Honor Championship. Ian Riccobani tells us The Allure has captured the championship and will defend it tonight in a triple threat match against Sumie Sakai and Jenny Rose. We are introduced to our first match of the night featuring a “Vegas Wild Card” match with all the participants chosen at random.

1) Jay Briscoe vs Joe Hendry vs Silas Young vs Cheeseburger vs Marty Scurll vs Jeff Cobb vs Josh Woods vs Brian Johnson vs Rhett Titus
Death Before Dishonor Fallout Tour
Las Vegas, Nevada

Starts off with Kenny King and Cheeseburger. King drives Cheeseburger into the corner and asks for a test of strength, but Cheeseburger reverses, King with double arm drags and gets a wristlock maintaining control. Cheeserburger tries to escape with a side headlock and gets dropped hard off the mat with a shoulderblock. Misdirection from Cheeseburger off the ropes, shoulder block gets two! Hard powerslam by Kenny King gets two! King allows Cheeseburger to roll into the corner and tag in Rhett Titus.

The former tag team champions tie up as Johnson tags Kenny King and begins barking at King that he’s the legal man and to get out of the ring. Johnson tags in Josh Woods as Johnson and King argue on the apron. Titus and Woods lock up. Cravate into a head takeover, Woods with a rolling pin gets one. Woods transitions into a full nelson and they exchange standing switches. Silas Young tags Rhett Titus as Silas Young and his protege square off. Fans start to change “Hug it out”, Young refuses as they tie up. Woods with an inside legsweep into a lateral press. He rolls Silas Young inside out and turns it into a banana split roll up as we fade to a commercial..

Back with Joe Hendry in the ring, driving Brian Johnson into the corner and Hendry tags in Rhett Titus. Titus with a power slam and a tag to Cheeseburger. Titus body slams Cheeseburger onto Johnson for a pin and a kickout. Burger tags Silas Young who stomps Johnson in the corner and tags Titus back in. Big splash by Titus gets a two count. Johnson with a back elbow ito a springboard shoulder. Johnson tags in Jeff Cobb who throws Titus over his head! Jeff Cobb lifts both Cheeseburger and Silas Young in his arms before dispatching both. He tosses Cheeseburger like a rag doll. Cobb destroying all four of his opponents. Titus flips onto the top rope, caught by Cobb in a stalling falcon arrow. Standing moonsault gets two by Cobb! Cobb tags in Kenny King who slaps Rhett Titus across the face and trash talks him. King heads outside the ring as Titus takes chase, back in, Johnson with a hard lariat that drops Titus and Johnson demands King tag him in. King fakes him out and back on the attack. Snap suplex! King backs into Woods who tags in. Woods crushes Rhett Titus! Knee in the corner! Pin and One count only. Brian Johnson slaps Woods back and tags in. Brian Johnson tells the crowd to shut up as Johnson attacks Titus as a couple fans chant “Last Place” at Johnson as he works over Rhett Titus.

Shenanigans occur as Johnson refuses to tag any of the men in his corner as Cheeseburger gets a hot tag. Cartwheel into a superkick and a Fuji Special! King attacks Cheeseburger, Hendry drops King with knee facebuster, Woods in and sends Hendry out, Titus drops Woods, Johnson launches off the top rope onto Titus and Silas Young with a backbreaker across the knee into a clothesline! Cobb and Hendry standing face to face. Titus ad Cheeseburger attack Cobb! Cobb with double pumphandles to King and Cheeseburger as Hendry drops two men with a double fallaway slam as they square off again. Running double clotheslines and both men are down. Everyone’s down! On the outside, Cobb and Hendry crash into each other as the crowd explodes. Silas Young and Josh Woods in the ring, Brian Johnson drags Woods outside, Cheeseburger drops Brian Johnson! Kenny King with an Arn Anderson Spinebuster to Burger! Titus with a Caporeia Kick to Burger! King tries a suplex but Titus blocks, Young and Woods drop the All Night Express from behind and Woods school boys Silas Young for the win in 15:00 shown.

* Jay Briscoe and Marty Scurll were shown on the screen as participants in the match, where as Kenny King and Rhett Titus were not, yet the latter were in the match. Odd.

Winner: Josh Woods (and his teammates who I couldn’t keep straight at all? Was this a tag match? Was it a Scramble? No rules were discussed, the pre-match advertisement didn’t have the correct participants shown, action was wild and tags were random)
Grade: *
Thoughts: I was going to give this two stars for having a decent length for an opener, one of the longest matches I’ve reviewed for Ring of Honor TV, but I need to take a whole star off for how confusing this whole thing was. I’m not surprised, this match is the epitome of Ring of Honor Television wrapped up into one highlight.

We are back with highlights of The Kingdom against The Bouncers in a Barroom Brawl at Death Before Dishonor as The Bruiser and Milonas were bleeding. Also shown was Marselgia throwing darts into Beer’s back. Everyone was bleeding as Milonas and Bruiser picked up the win. Backstage, Bruiser and Milonas celebrated with crimson masks, as Beer City Bruiser asked who’s next because they just proved they could fight.

2) The Bouncers (Brian Milonas & Beer City Bruiser) Vs Slice Boogey & Chris Bey

Boogie pie faces Bruiser to start as trash talks him. Bruiser is in great shape from when I’ve seen him before as Bruiser crushes Boogie as the crowd chanting “Beer Beer Beer” as Milonas and Bey get tagged in. Bey on the attack but Milonas sends him into the corner. Milonas tries a charge but Bey with a kick to the face. He tries to jump off the top, but Milonas drops him with a clothesline! Chris Bey gets crushed under Milonas who tags in Bruiser. Bey with forearms, missed a swing, Bruiser dazes Bey with dizzying punches and bites Bey’s forehead! Bruiser argues with the referee that he didn’t bite him, because he ain’t go no teeth.

On the outside, Boogie drops Bruiser with a clothesline. Bruiser rolls back in and Bey with a shining wizard! Tries a pin but Bruiser kicks out before one! Tag to Boogie who drops an elbow on Bruiser but kicks out. Bey tags back in, standing moonsault gets one only! Bey tags in Boogie. Hard spinebuster on Bey! Bruiser sends Boogie down and tags in Milonas who buries Boogie in the corner, runnuing body splash to both his opponents! Crossbody by Milonas onto Bey! Double team as Milonas with the diving guillotine legdrop, reminiscent of The Decapitation Device with a legdrop instead of an elbow, for the win at 4:30.

Winners: The Bouncers
Grade: *
Thoughts: Athletic squash as Boogie and Bey looked decent in a couple minutes of action. The Bouncers deserve more recognition for their explosive team work. I think they will be ROH Tag Team Champions before long. They are one of, if not the top contending team in the company right now. (I need to say this, and it might not be popular, but Brian Milonas needs to lose some weight. That’s not healthy to be carrying around that much weight. As I mentioned in the beginning of the match, Bruiser looks to be in the best condition I’ve ever seen him in this company in years, he’s still heavy, but he’s lost a ton of weight. He looks healthy and bulky, not balloon huge. Milonas looks really big. I hope he decides to give his body the benefit of the doubt before his heart gives out on him and we lose another wrestler young. Please Brian, please do yourself a favor.)

After a commercial, we are back with Rhett Titus, Silas Young, Cheeseburger, and Joe Hendry backstage. Titus says “We learned some things here in Las Vegas, 1) Cheeseburger is the greatest 2) I Believe in Joe Hendry (#IBelieveInJoeHendry), 3) Kenny King is going to get his ass whooped, and 4) I guess the student is better than the teacher, as he turns his attention to Silas who says his teammates didn’t have his back! Hendry breaks them up and tries to cheer them up by handing out autographs as Silas storms away.

Backstage after Death Before Dishonor, Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham are discussing their electric match. Lethal has an ice pack on his elbow, telling Gresham he also broke his elbow, and asks Gresham if they’ve hashed things out. Lethal apologizes if he upset him and apologizes for his constructive criticism. He says Gresham is the best technical wrestler in the world, and if they’re going to team he needs to start listening to his partner. Lethal asks what next, Gresham says he thinks the tag division needs a team like them. (Insert Simon Miller’s “Nobody Talks Like That!”)

Back with Ian Riccobani and Quinn McKay who plugs Rush vs Jeff Cobb at Honor United which can be found on Honor Club! Riccobani tells us that Gresham is a former Top Prospect Tournament competitor, but right now we will see highlights of the 2019 Finals match between Austin Gunn and Dak Draper. Literal highlight package of the entire match. Dak Draper picked up the win as Gunn stares into the lights as Draper celebrates.

Backstage, Dak Draper said at the beginning if the tournament he said he didn’t have to work hard to win the tournament and then remarked that was a lie. He’s been waking up every morning five days a week to train and says he pushes himself harder than anyone does. He’s big, he’s strong, he’s tall, but he’s strongest asset is his mind. He says his mind is the general and his body is the army. He says it doesn’t matter who the TV Champion is, he’s got him in his sights.

After a break, highlights of Rush winning the ROH World Championship, as Riccobani tells us about Rush against Jeff Cobb! He tells us about ROH The Experience, ROH Unauthorized, ROH Survival of the Fittest, and Final Battle all coming up for whoever the champion is. Quinn McKay says Rush is one of the hardest hitting and toughest champions of all time, as she wants Brian Zane to tell us his Top 5 Toughest ROH Champions Of All Time.

Brian Zane introduces him and says success is defined by win and losses, but also tenacity. 5) Austin Aries, the greatest man who ever lived, snapped Samoa Joe’s undefeated streak and won the title in 2004, then five years later became the first ever two time ROH World Champion in 2009, 4) Mr.Wrestling Kevin Steen, he says Steen has always flew in the face of authority but always backed it up. He defeated El Generico in one of the greatest ladder matches of all time, and also caused a riot when he spat in the face of Jay Lethals parents, 3) Samoa Joe, The Samoan Submission Machine, when you think of dominance you think of Samoa Joe. Joe was the first to defend the championship internationally, making it the ROH World Championship, and reigned for 21 months, the longest of all time, 2) Brian Danielson, the man once called The American Dragon was a founding father of the company, winning the championship in 2005, and holds the record for most successful defenses over 400 days, he wrestled the end of his reign with a major shoulder injury, and 1) Nigel McGuiness. No one felt for so long, in so much pain as much as Nigel, he held the belt longer than anyone else for a 545 day reign, withstanding a torn bicep (which ultimately ended his career), a concussion, a broken nose, and more while holding his own against the best wrestlers in the world. Dalton Castle walks up to Brian Zane and complains he’s not on the list even though he broke his back and then won the championship and defended the championship for six months, asking if that’s not tough?! He says he swims in the ocean and he’s not afraid to swim with sharks. Castle says he’s the top 5 toughest champion of all time!

3) ROH Women Of Honor Champion Angelina Love (w/ Mandy Leon) vs Sumie Sakai vs Jenny Rose
ROH Women of Honor Championship
Triple Threat

This is a television exclusive match. Jenny Rose out first, Sakai next, followed by the champion, Angelina Love. We are told Sakai was the first ever Women of Honor champion, and she trained Jenny Rose. Cabana says Love will do anything to retain the championship.
Bell sounds as we have under 10 minutes left in the show.

All three women stand across from each other. The challengers attack Love early. Double team attacks on the champion in the corner, double suplex! Double clothesline and the champion rolls to the outside. Jenny Rose turns it against Sakai inside and tries to suplex her but Sakai blocks. Rose reverses into a spinning side suplex for two. Off the ropes, Rose crushes Sakai, and Sakai tries again but Love trips her and gets in the ring. Running crossbody by Love on Rose. Sakai trips Love ad drags her outside, dropping her with a forearm! Inside, Jenny Rose with a Fishermans Suplex for two! Fade to a break…

Jenny Rose has a half crab locked in tight on Sakai, as Love drops Rose with a bulldog, Love locks in the Koji Clutch on Sumie Sakai in the middle of the ring! Nowhere to go! Sakai refuses to give up and swings her legs to the ropes. Sakai looks unconscious and Love breaks after four count. Love with a Lou Thesz Press to Rose on the outside, Rose trips Love into the apron, inside, Rose chops Love in the corner, and Love throws Rose outside and targets Sakai again. Sakai with a Fishermans Buister! Hooks the leg! Two count only! Love reverses Smash Mouth into a bridge pin for two! Love sends Sakai outside into Jenny Rose! Jenny Rose rolls inside with a jawbreaker to the champion! Rose with a boot to the throat! Rose targets on Sakai who is rolling in the ring. Both women brawling as they both take down Love. Rose with a short Spear for two and a half! Victory roll by Sumie Sakai for two! Rose with a lariat, hooks the legs, two and a half! Uranagi by Rose! Love dives in to break the count! Love with the Botox Injection! Sukai breaks the pin! Sukai hooks Love in the Smash Mouth again as Mandy Rose distracts Sakai on the apron and she chases Rose. Turns around into a Botox Injection for the win at 8:45 shown.

Winner AND STILL ROH Women of Honor Champion: Angelina Love
Grade: **1/2
Thoughts: For a match that ran under 10 minutes there was some fun stuff in here between three talented women. I wasn’t expecting much, but they delivered. Jenny Rose looked like a future star, and Sukai can just go, and at her age that’s truly amazing. Sukai being “distracted” by Mandy Rose on the apron was stupid, why not hit your move and THEN attack Rose? It’s as old as time in wrestling and it doesn’t get any less illogical. Another complaint I have is, Sakai didn’t sell either submission hold AT ALL. The announcers kept playing it like she was exhausted. Not believable, at all.

Overall Show Grade: 5/10

Maybe one of these days we will get a show worth watching. Few major complaints this week, but overall, the planning and production of these shows are mindbogglingly bad. Who makes these episodes for television? They surely can’t all go through the same person or team. There’s so much confusing direction that it can’t be possible; it’s embarrassingly unprofessional. Does this company know they are satire wrestling right now? Even in TNA’s worst moments, they weren’t this bad. I will replace whoever is in charge of producing these shows, and I’ll do it for half the salary and I promise you, I’ll make a relevant program that makes sense.

PLAY BY PLAY

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!

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 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.

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. Rhett RAMS into Kyle, then bumps him off buckles! Kyle staggers away, Rhett slingshots to SHOULDER TACKLE! The fans rally up and Rhett stands Kyle up to CHOP! And ROCK! And CHOP!

Rhett runs, but Kyle scoops to SLAM him! The fans fire up again and Kyle roars! Kyle stalks Rhett to a corner but Rhett kicks low. Kyle throws a body shot in return, then he puts Rhett in the corner. The ref counts, but Kyle CHOPS! The fans fire up up, Kyle wrenches and WRINGS Rhett out! Rhett writhes, Kyle pushes him to a cover, ONE! The fans cheer, but Kyle clamps onto Rhett with an armlock. Rhett endures, the fans rally, and Rhett fights up. Rhett throws body shots, arm-drags free, but Kyle comes back to ROCK him! Rhett sits down at the ropes, Kyle grabs the legs and YANKS Rhett up! Rhett lands on his feet!

Rhett blocks a lariat, spins Kyle around, and then suplexes to SLINGSHOT FALCON ARROW! The fans fire up while both men are down and Rhett feeds off the energy! He and Kyle stand, Rhett gets around to shove and ROCK Kyle in the back! Another shove, another forearm to the back! Another shove, another forearm to the back! Scoop and BACKBREAKER!

The Protostar keeps that momentum going, he is looking untouchable! Kyle vows to become the greatest ROH TV Champion of all time, all you’ve gotta do is watch and love it! Will the Aussie Arrow continue to shoot down contender after contender until there’s no one left?


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

Backstage interview with Top Flight.

Lexi Nair is with Action Andretti, Darius & Dante Martin, and brings us back to last year’s Supercard and Dante’s devastating injury. Dante was out of action for eight months but he’s back now and this trio is at their very best, how does it feel? Dante says it feels good. But as Lexi said, last year was when Dante broke his leg. And since then, he’s struggled, overcome, and work his ass off to put on bangers with these two. Saturday will see Dante & Darius face FTR in the AEW World Tag Team Championship semifinals, and Dante brings up how FTR said Top Flight’s never struggled. Did they not hear how Dante broke his leg?

Or perhaps they missed how Darius has been out more than he’s been in, so clearly he’s no stranger to struggle. Darius says is the past three years have taught you nothing else, it’s taught you that Dante & Darius can take a hit and get back up. Tomorrow night, FTR can hit them as hard as they want, but they will get back up and overcome. They know the road to the tag titles is hard, because it is FTR and then The Young Bucks, two of the best teams to ever do it. But at Dynasty, when Darius & Dante hold those titles up, then everyone will realize Top Flight is one of the best to ever do it, and they’re just taking off.

AEW Collision, special start time of 11:30 PM Eastern, will Top Flight take down the Top Guys?

Athena goes up the ropes, kicks at Shida, but Shida YANKS her up! Athena lands, swings but Shida KNEES low! Shida brings Athena up, whips her to a corner, but Athena goes up and FLYING CODE BREAKERS! Then she reels Shida in, Canadian Rack, CODE BREAKER!! Cover, ONE?!?! WHAT?!? Shida snarls as she rises up and Philly is thunderous! Athena shakes her head as she watches Shida stand. Shida runs up, Athena gets around and underhooks!

Shida fights the lift, so Athena SWINGS Shida around! But Shida wrenches out, suplexes, FALCON ARROW! Cover, ONE?!!? Athena returns the favor by shocking Shida! The fans rally up, a standing count begins, and both women sit up at 4 of 10. They stand, Shida SLAPS Athena! Shida runs, RANAS, covers, TWO! Athena stacks, TWO, into a deadlift POWERBOMB! Another stack, but Athena deadlifts again! Shida fights, and they go to ropes! Shida hammers Athena, and RANAS Athena out of the ring! But Athena holds on to POWERBOMB Shida to the floor!! The fans are thunderous again as Athena grins.

Athena stands over Shida, drags her up, and puts her in the ring. Athena dusts off her hands, then climbs the corner. Shida stands, into the O-FACE!!! Cover, TWO?!?!? Athena’s shocked all over again! She’s starting to lose her composure but the fans are rallying for Shida! Athena gets mad now, and she stomps Shida! Athena goes up to the top rope again, but Shida anchors a foot! Athena drags Shida up the corner, Shida throws body shots! Shida climbs now but Athena CLUBS away on her! Shida CLUBS at the legs! Shida throws more shots, then she HEADBUTTS Athena! Both women wobble up top and the fans fire up!

Shida stands Athena up, fireman’s carries, for a SUPER BACKBREAKER on the ropes! Then FALCON ARROW!! But that’s not the end! KATANA!!! Cover, TWO?!?!?! The fans are electric as Athena shocks everyone! Shida pulls her pant leg up, her kneepad down, and she takes aim! The fans are dueling as Shida runs up again, TAMA- NO, Athena blocks! Shida CLUBS at Athena, but Athena SLAPS her! Shida SLAPS back! And GERMAN SUPLEXES! Athena rises, but Shida LARIATS! Shida roars and the fans are with her!

Athena flounders her way to the corner and climbs back up! O-FACE!!!! Cover, ATHENA WINS!!

Winner: Athena, by pinfall (still ROH Women’s World Champion)

Just when it looked like “forever” was going to end, the Fallen Goddess rises to the occasion and hits FIFTY WINS! But if not even a women’s champion as great as Shida can stop her, will Athena never EVER let go of that title?

 

ROH World Championship: Eddie Kingston VS Mark Briscoe!

Eleven years ago to the day, the late, great Jay Briscoe won this championship right here in Philadelphia. Beloved by all, Jay’s memory is with us today, and perhaps even his spirit. But even so, The Mad King has vowed that he cannot and will not lose this title to Jay’s brother. Will Eddie deny Mark his dream in order to hold onto his own? Or is this the night the Sussex County Chicken flies like an eagle?

The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and as Jay would say, it’s time to man up!

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans are fired up already. The two circle, feel things out, and the fans chant “MAN UP! MAN UP!” Eddie and Mark both fire up a bit more hearing that, and they tie up. Eddie uses his size to put Mark in a corner, then he lets off. The two reset, circle, knuckle lock, and then back up again. They tie up, go around, Mark wrenches and hammerlocks, but Eddie switches. The fans rally for “DEM BOYS!” and Mark drop toeholds to then float and facelock. Eddie wrenches right out, wristlocks, but Mark rolls. Mark YANKS the arm to then wrench it, but Eddie stays up.

Eddie endures as Mark puts on the pressure. Mark headlocks, Eddie powers up but can’t power out as Mark holds tight. Eddie wrenches at the hold but can’t wrench out. Eddie throws body shots, powers out this time, but Mark runs him over! The fans cheer, Mark runs but Eddie gets under the lariat to SAIDO! And a high angle at that! Mark flounders to a corner but Eddie storms up. Eddie digs his boot in, scrubs Mark a few times, then runs side to side, to BOOT WASH! Eddie lets off after that, then goes back to bring Mark up. Eddie CHOPS, then whips corner to corner. Mark goes up and out, ROCKS Eddie then REDNECK UPPERCUTS!

Mark jumps in to BOOT Eddie down! Mark lines up his shot as Eddie sits up, and then runs up to BOOT WASH in return! Eddie bails out, the fans fire up with Mark and he WRECKS Eddie with a dropkick! Eddie goes to barriers but Mark keeps moving! Mark DIVES with the cannonball tope! The Briscoe Family is there to cheer Mark on! Then Mark throws a chair into the ring! Fans fire up for that, but the ref warns Mark to be careful with that. Mark claps with the chair, then stands it up. The fans rally as Mark builds speed, but Eddie’s in! Choke grip, CHOKE SLAM onto the chair! The ref reprimands but can’t disqualify, Eddie used Mark against the chair, not the other way around!

Eddie pursues Mark out of the ring, but the ref wants him to stay back. Eddie goes into the ring while Mark crawls. Mark clutches his lower back while the count begins. Mark stands but Eddie wanting to go out only delays the count. Mark has time, but then Eddie sneaks out the side! Eddie CLOBBERS Mark, and he SLAMS a chair down! Eddie takes his frustration out on the chair, then he brings Mark up to DRIBBLE him off the desk! The ref reprimands but Eddie keeps going until Mark’s busted open! Mark already has a crimson mask flowing as Eddie leaves him behind. The ring count returns, but Mark gets in at 3 of 20.

Mark stands, he just eggs Eddie on! Eddie fires haymakers, then he HEADBUTTS away on the bloody wound! Mark just fires up and CHOPS! Eddie CHOPS back! Mark CHOPS! Eddie fires hands into the forehead! Mark staggers back, Eddie may have even hurt his own hand punching so hard! Mark sits in a corner, the ref checks the wound, but somehow Mark’s okay to continue. Eddie storms up to CLAW at the forehead! The ref counts, Eddie lets off at 4, and Mark’s blood is painting even his neck and shoulders. Eddie comes back to MACHINE GUN CHOP! The fans fire up, and Mark CHOPS back! And CHOPS again! And CHOPS again!

Eddie reloads to MACHINE GUN CHOP again! Mark CHOPS again! And CHOPS again! Mark CHOPS again, but then Eddie traps the arms to OVERHEAD SUPLEX! The fans fire up, and Mark crawls around. “MAN UP! MAN UP!” echoes out, but Eddie clamps on a neck wrench! Eddie’s trying to squeeze the blood outta Mark’s melon! Mark rises, to SLAP Eddie! And SLAP! And CHOP! Mark CHOPS again, but Eddie fires forearms! Eddie runs to LARIAT! Mark flops over and Eddie tells off the Philly fans! Eddie KICKS Mark, and CHOPS! And KICKS! And CHOPS! Mark still sits up, so Eddie CHOPS again!

Eddie HEADBUTTS Mark, dumps him out, and builds speed! But Mark UPPERCUTS first! Eddie flops to the apron, and Mark BITES Eddie’s forehead now! Mark UPPERCUTS Eddie, stalks him to railing, and has him take a seat so he can rain down fists! Mark goes to get space, and he comes back to SHOTGUN Eddie against barriers! Eddie falls over, Mark resets the count, and then he snap suplexes Eddie to the floor! Mark goes up the apron, says BANG BANG, Cactus Jack ELBOW DROP! The fans fire up as Mama Briscoe’s Baby Boy drags Eddie up! But Eddie POSTS Mark! Mark falls, Eddie refreshes the count, and Eddie goes back for Mark.

Eddie puts Mark in, storms up on him, and drops an ELBOW of his own! Cover, TWO! Mark stays in this but Eddie keeps calm. Eddie rains down fists, aiming right for the forehead. The fans rally and duel, Eddie puts Mark up top. Eddie puts Mark in the Tree of Woe then digs his boots in! The blood is just rushing to Mark’s head and out of the wound, but Mark frees himself. So Eddie WRECKS Mark with a dropkick! Eddie drags Mark to a cover, TWO! Mark is still tougher than that, and Eddie is a bit frustrated. Eddie CLUBS Mark, then reels him in. Mark fights the lift, so Eddie fires Kawada Kicks! Mark LARIATS right back!!

The fans fire up as both men are down! The crimson mask just keeps growing but Mark pounds the mat. The fans rally with Mark as he drags himself up. Mark goes back to Eddie and fires a forearm! Eddie CHOPS! Mark CHOPS back! Eddie brings down one strap, then the other! The fans fire up as Eddie CHOPS! Mark shakes that off and fires back up, so he can CHOP again! Eddie roars, then RIDGE HAND CHOPS! Eddie runs, Mark REDNECK KUNG-FU UPPERCUTS! Mark ROCKS Eddie with a forearm, whips him to ropes, but Eddie reverses. Mark CLOBBERS Eddie with forearms! Eddie goes to a corner, Mark runs in, GAMANGIRI!

Mark whips corner to corner but Eddie barely makes it! Mark runs up again to clothesline! The fans rally, Mark reels Eddie in and has the leg! FISHERMAN BUSTER! Cover, TWO!! Eddie survives but Mark stays fired up! Eddie bails out, so Mark goes to the apron. Mark runs to BLOCKBUSTER to the floor! Eddie writhes, Mark chucks chairs around, then Mark drags Eddie up. Mark puts Eddie in the ring and climbs up. Mark aims, FROGGY- NO, Eddie moves! But he runs into a fireman’s carry! ROLLING DEATH VALLEY! Mark hurries back up, takes aim again, FROGGY BOW!! Cover, TWO?!? Eddie survives again and the fans fire up!

Mark gets up, that crimson mask still bright red on his face! The fans rally, Mark hauls Eddie up and whips, but Eddie reverses, clinches, and EXPLODERS! But Mark’s right up!? And he clinches to EXPLODER! But Eddie clinches, EXPLODER!! Mark clinches, EXPLODER!! Both men stagger around from being thrown around, then they run in! DOUBLE LARIATS!! The fans are thunderous as both men are down again! The standing count begins, fans love “Both These Guys!” The count passes 5 of 10, but Mark rises up! Eddie goes to the apron but Mark pursues. Mark storms out after Eddie, and SLAPS him!

Eddie CHOPS! Mark CHOPS! Eddie SLAPS! Mark kicks, reels Eddie in, and underhooks! Eddie fights that, fires forearms, then clinches! But Mark fights the lift, throws down elbows, but Eddie HEADBUTTS away! Clinch and EXPLODER to the floor!! The fans lose their minds from that one! The ring count climbs but the fans chant “MAN UP! MAN UP!” Mark and Eddie flounder, the count is 5 of 20, and Eddie rises at 10. We hit 15, Eddie slides in! Mark flounders at 17 and falls back over! 18! 19!! Mark springs in at 19.5!! The fans are thunderous as Mark stays in this! Mark pounds the mat and the fans rally up again!

Eddie and Mark slowly rise, and they crawl to each other. Eddie fires a haymaker, but Mark hits back! They fire forearms and other wild shots back and forth. Eddie SLAPS Mark, but Mark shakes his head! Mark uses ropes to stand, and he SLAPS Eddie! Eddie SLAPS! Mark CHOPS! Eddie grimaces and CHOPS back! Mark CHOPS again! Eddie takes a moment, nods and CHOPS again! Mark roars to SLAP, CHOP and CHOP! Mark unleashes all his Redneck Kung-Fu, then runs, ducks ‘n’ dodges, and LARIATS!! The fans are thunderous as Mark drags Eddie up and calls his shot! But Eddie wrenches, HALF ‘N’ HALF!!

Eddie says this is the end, and he URAKENS!! Mark falls, Eddie covers, TWO!??! Mark survives and the fans are electric! Eddie snarls but the fans say to “MAN UP!

Winner: Mark Briscoe, by pinfall (NEW ROH World Champion)

Papa Briscoe gets in the ring to hug his son in celebration, and even Mark’s friends in the locker room make their way out here! Jay Lethal, Rhett Titus, Dalton Castle, Christopher Daniels, even The Kingdom and so many more join in the celebration! They hoist Mark up on their shoulders, and then they all hug it out! Mark says hold on, they gotta give it up to the former champion, too! Eddie manages to stand, looks to Mark, and they nod. They shake hands to keep the Code of Honor, and then hug it out!

The fans cheer this moment that is not only Mark celebrating destiny achieved, but also him honoring the memory of big brother Jay. Supercard of Honor ends with a true feel good moment, how much bigger and better will ROH get from here?


My Thoughts:

A great Supercard of Honor here. I know, I skipped Zero Hour but this is also WrestleMania Weekend, so many other things are happening and I don’t have time for all four-and-a-half hours that this would be. But the Zero Hour is free on AEW’s YouTube, whatever. I did skim, it was all pretty good stuff, other than duh, Premier Athletes were winning their return match. Black Taurus has transformed into Beast Mortos, he of course won. I was actually surprised SAP didn’t win here, this should’ve been where they ended the story with Maria’s boys but it seems like they’ve doubled down because Serpentico lost another mask to them.

Awesome match from Kyle VS Lee to open the main show, and great Kyushin Thunder Liger reference in Kyle’s entire presentation. Kyle winning made a lot of sense, he’s just doing so well. Maybe if this was Ethan Page, there would be a chance Kyle lost, but Lee was clearly fed to the Protostar’s reign. Great Six Woman Tag from Stardom, and you gotta appreciate the constant action going on outside the ring, very unique compared to American style. Great win for Mina’s team, and fun little moment with Mariah coming out to celebrate with them. Well, mostly with Mina. Depending on how things go in Storm VS Thunder, it’d be fun to have Mariah’s two mentors interact and maybe even fight over the title.

Great tag title match from The Kingdom VS Infantry, but just as we saw on Rampage tonight with Roddy VS Rocky, Wardlow got involved to help The Kingdom, just as Adam Cole said. And hey, as I was hoping, Bullet Club Gold actually shows up to do stuff with their ROH World Six Man titles. But while Archer, Zayne and Suzuki are a great trio, of course they were losing. BCG still has to settle things with The Acclaimed, and great to see them show up here, too, so maybe we get Winners Take All at Dynasty. Then Acclaimed can show up on ROH TV, or who knows, maybe BCG wins and they bring all the belts to ROH TV. Just someone show up on ROH TV more often.

Really good stuff in the Fight Without Honor, it’s just too bad The Boys got released before this. They definitely should’ve made their epic return all feral and violent so they could help Castle win. But instead, we did get admittedly hilarious gags with the substitute Boys, and Paul Walter-Hauser so he could plug his own stuff. Which is fine, ROH is making it work with Wrestling Revolver, Athena & Billie went there once. And speaking of, both women’s titles were awesome tonight. I don’t know how to feel about Billie faking such a scary injury but WOW did she do a great job of it. Both Billie and Aminata are great, but I suppose Face in the chase makes sense, and now Billie gets to reign alongside Athena.

Honestly, didn’t Athena was winning. 50-0 is a great mark to hit, but now it’s like, who beats Athena for the title? The only thing I can think of is if she and Billie face off again for both belts, but that doesn’t seem right either. It would be great if Aminata moved up to the world title to make up for not winning the TV title. And in a way, that’s what happened with Mark Briscoe. Great stuff between Mark and Eddie tonight, and wow did Mark bleed. Mark winning out was the right call, he’s been long overdue for a singles title and here we are. Eddie still has his NJPW Strong title, too, so this was surely a great honor for him to give Mark the ROH title.

My Score: 9.1/10
