PLAY BY PLAY

Aoife Valkyrie VS Dani Luna!

The NXT UK Women’s Division continues to grow stronger and stronger as the chase is on! Will the “Irish Angel” or the punk rock powerlifter take a big step up in the rankings towards Kay Lee Ray’s title?

The bell rings and Dani stares down with Aoife before tying up. Dani headlocks, Aoife endures, but Dani shifts to a cravat. Dani cranks on the neck, snapmares but Aoife cartwheels through! Aoife drop toeholds Dani then hammerlocks an arm. Dani fights up, reaches back to get the arm and then a fireman’s carry takeover! Dani holds Aoife down, but Aoife reaches up to headscissor. Dani kips out and the two stand off. Aoife and Dani go again, Dani wrenches the arm to a wristlock. Aoife spins and bridges then turns and handsprings to facelock. Dani spins out, wrings the arm but Aoife handsprings through. Dani knees low and hard, then drags Aoife back up. Dani whips, Aoife goes up but is caught! Aoife arm-drags free, then goes at Dani but Dani reverses the whip.

Things speed up, Dani hurdles but Aoife headbutts low! Aoife whips, Dani reverses again but Aoife hurdles and dropkicks! Dani bails out, Aoife runs and slides, but into a wheelbarrow and apron facebuster! Both women catch their breath but Dani puts Aoife in to cover, TWO! Dani is after an arm and also chinbars Aoife. Dani cranks on arm and neck but Aoife endures. Aoife fights her way up, Dani knees low and scoops to slam her! Cover, TWO! Dani is back to the armlock and chinbar but Aoife fights up. Aoife throws body shots and clubbing forearms, then kicks away on a leg! Dani knees low again, whips Aoife to ropes but Aoife leaps, into Dani’s arms! Dani pops Aoife up to a fireman’s carry, but Aoife pops up and spins to headscissor Dani down!

Aoife keeps moving, springboard for a crossbody! Cover, TWO! Dani gets up, Aoife runs and spins her to PELE! Cover, TWO! Dani stays in this and Aoife takes a moment to think. Aoife drags Dani up, scoops but Dani resists! Dani shoves, ducks the enziguri and DEAD LIFT GERMAN SUPLEXES! And then DEAD LIFT STANDARD SUPLEXES! Cover, TWO! Aoife survives those strong throws but Dani drags her up. Dani has the arm, but Aoife spins out to ROCK Dani with slapping haymakers! Dani goes to a corner, boots back but into a takedown! Gedo Clutch, TWO, but Aoife rebounds, into a waistlock! GERMAN, but Aoife lands out of it! Dani turns around, into the HEEL KICK! Aoife goes up top and watches Dani, for the PERPETEIA! Cover, Aoife wins!

Winner: Aoife Valkyrie, by pinfall

The Turn of Fortune is always good fortune for Aoife, but will this win be the first step towards title opportunities? Aoife also shows Dani respect by helping her up and shaking her hand. Will Dani keep on fighting and grinding to make her own impact in the division?

 

The Heritage Cup semifinals are coming!

In the opening round, Noam Dar had a gritty but perhaps controversial victory over the Dresden Hatchet Man. The Modfather was trumped by the Spanish Ace, and now we’ll have a showdown of the two youngest men in NXT UK! Will Supernova 11 hit the jackpot or bust against A-Kid? On the other side, Joseph Conners could not prove he was worthy as he could not withstand the heavy hands of The Bomber, Dave Mastiff! Mastiff is the only man so far to have a win by knockout, he could end up doing that again to Trent Seven, who managed to outlast and out maneuver the Lucky Yin. The second round begins next week, how is your bracket looking?

 

NXT UK, get ready for a rampage!

Rampage Brown, famously known for his time in PROGRESS Wrestling, ICW and Rev-Pro, is coming to the WWE! Johnny Moss knows it’s a long time coming and is very excited to see Rampage again. The experience, the power, the aggression and the ruthless attitude is going to put the locker room on notice. Ashton Smith teamed with Rampage, and he says the fans are going to see something special. Pete Dunne knows Rampage has been a big deal in the business for a long time, and it’s finally time for us all to see what he can do.

 

South Wales Subculture is in the ring!

Mark Andrews and Flash Morgan Webster have both been attacked backstage by a mysterious culprit, several months apart. “And Eddie Dennis wants to walk around-” Well wait, here he comes! Dennis says Mark sounds like he doesn’t trust him. They’ve known each other 15 years, so yeah, Mark doesn’t trust Dennis! Dennis agrees, and in those 15 years, he’s never met a man who as narcissistic as Mark! Mark used Dennis on the indies, and now he’s using Flash in the WWE. FMW says that for a man who is so smart, Dennis talks out of his arse a lot! Well ask yourself this then, Flash. What were you doing right before you were jumped backstage? Proving yourself as a singles competitor! Who has the most to lose if they break up as a team? Like Pacino says, “Keep your friends close, and your enemies closer.”

FMW keeps Andrews from doing something to Dennis but Dennis has Pretty Deadly as back-up anyway. Well FMW knew they’d play things this way, so they remind them that they have friends, too! The Hunt shows up! Dennis tells them they’re like the children who never listen! Dennis says it’s about keeping your friends, and your enemies closer. The Hunt attacks SWSC!! It was Wild Boar and Primate all along!! Primate POSTS FMW, then helps Boar mug Mark! Pretty Deadly leave to let the wild animals take care of this. Boar runs and hits the CANNON-BOAR! Dennis tells them to go after FMW, and then he makes Andrews watch as they hit a DEATH VALLEY SIT-OUT BOMB! The Welsh Dragon is the mastermind but The Hunt are the muscle! Will these three beasts run roughshod over all of NXT UK?

 

NXT UK Media catches up with Piper Niven.

What’s her plan in NXT UK now? Well, the same as it’s always been: get after Kay Lee Ray. “Title reigns fade. But injuries? They can last forever.” The Scottish Viper has something planned for the Scary Queen of Scots. Will she get the title off KLR, just not through a title match?

 

NXT UK Media talks with Sid Scala.

Can he shed any light on this situation with Eddie Dennis? Pretty Deadly walk out and Sid asks them what is going on. They honestly don’t know. But they don’t care about that. They feel they’ve earned a shot at the NXT UK Tag Team Championships, and want an answer on when it’s happening. But Sam Gradwell comes over to tell them not to worry about Gallus. The real headline now is that the Thunder Storm is back. See ya around! Pretty Deadly shrug that off and asks Scala for a time on that title match. They leave, but Gallus comes by now to say they just heard Pretty Deadly. Is Scala gonna do something about that? Or will they have to handle it? Scala says they can arrange something. Just remember this, Scala. Gallus will be back to full strength soon enough. But go ahead, take time to think about it. Scala breathes a sigh of relief after they leave. What will Scala decide for the tag titles?

 

Jordan Devlin VS Levi Muir!

He’s baaack~! The “rightful” NXT Cruiserweight Champion returns to the ring, wanting to establish that there should be no other Cruiserweight Champion anywhere! Will “The Best Athlete in the Game” be just a stepping stone towards that end?

The bell rings, Devlin circles with Muir and ties up. Devlin wrenches, yanks the arm, wrenches more, then gets under to suplex Muir up and over! Muir gets up and circles with Devlin again. They tie up, Devlin headlocks but Muir endures the grind to power Devlin off! Muir says he’s too strong for that, and he circles with Devlin again. Devlin shoots in to CLUB Muir with a forearm then DECKS him with a haymaker! Devlin stomps away on Muir then CLUBS him again! Devin wrenches to a wristlock, brings Muir around by a chinbar, but Muir wrenches out. Devlin rolls, handsprings and elbows hard! Muir goes down and Devlin says he doesn’t belong in the ring with him! Devlin stomps Muir, whips him then runs him over with a big elbow!

Muir sits up in a daze but Devlin drives elbows into his head! Devlin slaps Muir around but Muir shoves back. Devlin scoops and slams Muir fast! Devlin toys with Muir, talks trash, then brings him up to throw a hard body shot! Muir uppercuts back! Muir runs but into the URENAGE! Standing moonsault! Devlin says there’s only one Ace and that’s him! Devlin brings Muir up, Muir cradle counters, TWO! Devlin rushes Muir, Muir tries a school boy but Devlin blocks to STOMP Muir down! Devlin seethes as he paces about. Muir sits up, Devlin CLUBS him back down, then looms over Muir as he writhes. Devlin drags Muir up to elbow him back, but Muir gets angry. Devlin shoves, kicks and whips to then ALABAMA SLAM!

Devlin rains down fists, then drags Muir up to whip. Muir reverses, Devlin sunset flips but Muir stays up! Muir drags Devlin up, pops him up to a gorilla press, but Devlin slips out to crucifix pin! TWO!! Devlin HEADBUTTS Muir down!! Muir is in a daze, Devlin yanks him up, DEVLINSIDE!! But Devlin isn’t done, he laces up the legs for a CLOVERLEAF!! Muir taps, Devlin wins!

Winner: Jordan Devlin, by submission

Devlin could’ve put it away at the dead lift suplex, but he wanted to make sure everyone understood: he isn’t playing around. “This is a message to the Cruiserweight Division! Your champ, the one REAL Cruiserweight Champion, is back! If you want a shot at this title, you come here to the Jordan Devlin Show! But before you take a shot at me, remember this. You never bet against the Ace.” Will Santos Escobar respond with more than just words this time?

 

BREAKING NEWS!

Sid Scala has made a decision in regards to Gallus! With Joe Coffey coming back next week, he, brother Mark Coffey and Wolfgang will reunite in a Six Man Tag against Pretty Deadly and Sam Gradwell! Will Sam Stoker and Lewis Howley reaffirm their claim to a title match with help from The Thunder Storm?

 

NXT UK Championship: Walter VS Ilja Dragunov!

There is so much history here, even before both men entered the WWE. The Ring General has dominated ever since joining, from sweeping British Strong Style to defeating some of the biggest and the baddest. The Moscow Madman struggled, scratched, clawed, and managed to outlast 19 of the greatest NXT UK had to offer as he won a battle royal to earn this match. However, the world going through crisis kept this match from happening before the Summer. But now, in the Fall, we shall finally have this instant classic play out!

Walter turns Dragunov over, brings him up in a sleeper hold and body scissors! Dragunov is OUT, Walter wins!!

Winner: Walter, by submission (still NXT UK Champion)

Just what are these two men in the ring, that it took this much to finish the fight? Is there even anything left in the body of Dragunov? If not even the invincible could dethrone Walter, what can?!


My Thoughts:

HOLY HELL that episode, but especially the main event. That had to be the level they were hoping for with TakeOver: Dublin that we never got to have this year. And it was definitely worth the wait. And as much as I was hoping Dragunov wins, the math obviously doomed him with how he won the tag match and then stood tall in the contract signing just last week. But this isn’t just kayfabe sensationalism, I am really unsure who dethrones Walter. Dunne didn’t in the rematch, but that was fine, Walter’s reign was new and needed to get going. Bate couldn’t but the Cardiff match basically raised the bar for the entire NXT UK Championship scene. As such, that’s why Dave Mastiff and Joe Coffey didn’t win, because they’re not on that Dunne-Bate level. Ridge Holland showed promise but the pandemic shutdowns compelled NXT to move him to USA, and now he’s hurt! I really thought it was going to be Dragunov, but maybe with how he lost by passing out more than tapping out, he will come back around one day.

Everything else was pretty good, such as Aoife VS Dani as our opener to keep Aoife on our minds in the NXT UK Women’s Division. I do like Piper’s veiled threat to KLR about injuries over victories. That’s an interesting edge they could give Piper, especially with Jinny as a Heel. A Heel KLR VS Heel Jinny, Tweener Piper getting involved, the division could use something like that. We had great hype for the Heritage Cup semifinals, and Dar VS A-Kid opening the second round next week is great. I saw the swerve from Hunt coming miles away, but I didn’t think they were working with Eddie Dennis, that was a good addition. I wonder if Mastiff joins forces with SWSC again to have a Six Man Tag. Mastiff and Dennis have history in NXT UK so it’d work. And Rampage Brown as a new signee to NXT UK, that’s exciting.

Devlin’s return was pretty definitive, but Levi Muir does look like a strong talent with potential. I’m not sure who his first feud on NXT UK will be, but I’m really hoping we get Worlds Collide: NXT VS NXT UK 2 to settle things in the end. And speaking of returns, Sam Gradwell and Joe Coffey will both return to the ring, and those two are going to be heavy hitter. With Pretty Deadly wanting after the tag titles, I feel like that’s just a feud to ease Gallus back into things and to build their reign. I wonder when Grizzled Young Veterans and Imperium’s Aichner and Barthel are coming back, I haven’t seen them in awhile. Of course, we’ve seen both those teams fight for the tag titles before, so I’m not sure if they’d be given the greenlight to dethrone Gallus.

My Score: 8.6/10

Andrew’s TNA iMPACT! Results & Match Ratings: 6.13.2024

The ultimate Go Home! We are one day away from Against All Odds and The System goes to the Hardy Compound for a face off!

Published

on

Against All Odds is tomorrow night, so we see how this Go Home show is structured to get there. We also get a Hardy Compound segment in TNA for the first time in what…6 years? I’m not fact checking time frames, just been a long damn time.

A few matches to set the table for the TNA+ Event and looks like about 3 Knockouts matches. So fans of women’s wrestling should enjoy this episode.

Ratings:

  • Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana: Santana wins via Spin the Block – ***
  • Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay: Marti wins via Roll-Up – **
  • Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson: Dani wins via Luna Landing – ** 1/2
  • ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone: ASH wins via Rarefied Air – **
  • The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth): Nemeths win via Maverick – *** 1/4

 

Results:

Zachary Wentz w/Trey Miguel vs Mike Santana

Santana comes out second and immediately double legs Wentz as soon as he hits the ring, bullies him a little and then starts chasing Trey around so Wentz can recover and land a Moonsault on Santana. Codebreaker into a Running Shooting Star for a near fall from Wentz. Wentz slowly things down with the headlock, even though he’s the quicker guy, so that doesn’t make sense. Santana fires back a little but WEntz counters and starts choking him on the ropes. Referee backs him off so Trey gets involved. Wentz with some attempted control moves, standing switches from both leads to both heading to the ropes, Santana shakes off Wentz and hits the Rolling Buck Fifty! Dive takes out both Rascalz after Wentz powders, bullying in the corner, Wentz tries to pop out but Santana catches him in a fluid pop Death Valley Driver and near fall.

Wentz manages to duck the Spin the Block, counter the next move and connect on his strike combo. Swanton Bomb from Wentz, but only 2! Superkick from Wentz, attempted UFO Cutter, but it turns into trading Push Kicks, Enzuigiris and then a Jumping DDT from Wentz! Wentz feigns injury, Trey tries to interfere but Maclin makes the save. Wentz goes for his Back Handspring Jumping Knee but Santana times the Spin the Block perfectly. Levels Wentz and picks up the win!

Tom has an interview with Mustafa Ali and it just cements his delusional politician thing. Not really a ton beyond Ali is ignoring facts and continuing his schtick.

Masha Slamovich vs Marti Belle w/Allysin Kay

Ahh yelling at each other in Spanish and Russian, so no one understand the other and Masha grabs Marti’s head and pulls her down. They start a little chain wrestling with Arm Wringers and World of Sport counters. Bad Drop Toe Hold because Marti slowed down too much and it made the move look fake as hell. But at least the next few moves from both connect a little harder, Marti distracts the ref and Allysin makes her presence felt.

Running Forearm drops Masha in the corner, Hip attack from Marti gives her a near fall. Masha retreats to the corner, Marti tries to go back to the well but Masha has great counters. Slips through her legs, Up Kick, Yakuza Kick, Waterwheel Kick, all beautiful strikes for a near fall. Marti tries to use the ropes in a dirty Roll-Up but the referee sees it, Allysin jumps up, Masha attacks her and then another Roll-Up from Marti with Allysin assisting from the outside for the win.

https://x.com/i/status/1801412311061516750

Why is Xia so perfect in this adorable supportive friend character? I really hate enjoying this wrinkle from Xia…god dammit.

PCO saw AJ Francis take the rose from SDL, so he jumps them during their interview with Gia. PCO just wants the rose back, very Young Frankenstein vibes, and I’m not mad at this so far. 

Tasha Steelz vs Dani Luna w/Jody Threat & Lars Fredrickson

Collar and Elbow tie up that goes from corner to corner and Tasha leans into the ropes for the break. Rope run, Tasha Leap Frogs Dani and then connects with a Sole Butt. Tasha tries to go for something in the corner, but Dani just throws her halfway across the ring and connects with a Sliding Lariat Ishii style. Tasha connects on a kick, takes entirely too long showboating and Dani counters into a Falcon Arrow for 2.

Dani misses in the corner, Tasha tries to follow up but eats a forearm and retreats to the apron. Dani tries to Suplex her outside in, but Tasha counters, uses the ropes to her advantage and Dani eats a PK to the face. Near fall gets followed up by a Headbutt from Tasha, then she chokes Dani on the ropes, Dani tries to fight back but another Headbutt drops Dani. Dani tries to fight back again, but eats a Codebreaker from Tasha for yet another near fall. Forward rolling Snapmare into PK but Dani grabs her leg and goes for a flash Roll-Up only for 2. Forearm strike exchange, Tasha gets the best of things with a Knee Lift, tries to hit the ropes but Dani lays in a few Lariats and then…I don’t know. Both go for a Single Leg Dropkick and its just…ugly. Dumb spot and the stutter steps telegraphed a goofball spot.

Dani is the first one back up, a few quick strikes and another Single Leg Dropkick gives Dani the advantage but Tasha blocks the follow up, tries a Cradle, but no dice. Powerbomb from Dani for 2. Luna Landing attempt, but the eye rake into the Rope Assisted Bulldog, but Dani counters, Tasha hits the Shiranui, only for 2. Tasha tries the Rings of Saturn, but Dani gets her foot on the ropes. Tasha with chops and headbutt combos, but Dani hits the Rebound Blue Thunder Bomb for a two! Dani tries to psyche up, Luna Landing gets turned into a Frankensteiner from Tasha, but Dani blocks, then blocks the Okurrr, transitions it into the Luna Landing and Dani wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801418226976358888

Frankie makes a Megadeth reference now with Kill the King. So I’m not angry now, or angry again.

The Hardy Compound thing…I have no words for it. It was definitely goofier than the previous TNA ones (which is saying something when Rockstar Spud lost a match to a child), but it was kinda fun. 

ASH by Elegance w/Personal Concierge vs Jada Stone

ASH goes back to the kiss the hand aspect of her persona, then stomps into the enhancement talent. Rosemary lurking in the shadows and just watching the match is odd, but ASH is back to getting her character over. ASH gets cocky, eats a quick Dropkick, ASH powders, complains to the Concierge, but when Jada dives…ASH catches her nicely with the Forearm to the face. Two near falls, and then ASH just unloads in frustration.

Cartwheel Back Elbow from ASH, Jada cuts off the next move, tries to string together some offense but ASH say nope. A little struggle, Jada connects on a kick to the face, Moonsault, but ASH gets the knees up, Lariat into Rarefied Air, and ASH wins!

https://x.com/i/status/1801426643694616707

The ABC (Ace Austin & Chris Bey) vs Nemeth Brothers (Nic & Ryan Nemeth)

Bey starts, its a very respectful double Babyface team style of start. Some counter wrestling, then Bey asks for Nic to tag in, and some playing jawing, but nothing seems to be crossing lines. And no offense is really worth discussing, just basic stuff, playful taunts and giving each other space to tag out. When Ace tags in, he’s a bit more business minded, doesn’t toy with taunts and just rolls under a Lariat, kicks the back of the knees, takes Nic down, throws an Arm Wringer into a Hammerlock and tries to stay on top of Nic. Nic with a desperation spin out into the Release Northern Lights counter. Ace tags out, Bey Double Stomps Nic’s back and keep him isolated. Nic tries to fight back a few times but Bey cuts off the comeback, Nic even just tries to scuttle past Bey, but can’t get to Ryan in time.

Headlock Suplex from Ace after Bey tags him in, to continue the isolation. Coordinated tagging in and out from the ABC, keeps Nic completely isolated. When they comeback from the commercial is probably when Nic will make the comeback and tag out. But those 3 minutes…rough isolation days. Rebound Tandem Overhead Arm Drag, into a Double PK from ABC. Nic is connecting with a few Rabbit Punches, but a Dropkick from Bey stifles the attempt at momentum. Bey tags out to Ace, kick to the ribs into a High Angle Backdrop, and then a Headscissors Chokehold. Nic slowly turns through the Headscissors, gets back to his feet, but gets shoved into the ABC corner. Jumping Snap Kick from Ace, into the jump off teammate Flying Uppercut attack. Bey shoves Nic back into the corner, goes for another attack but crashes and burns, a small struggle to stop Nic, but Nic gets free and Ryan with the hot tag.

Flying Shoulder Tackle into a Rude Awakening for 2 on Bey! Nic tags himself back in, tries a Cutter, blocked, Back Slide, but no, Fame ASSER for 2! Arm Wringer control for the Nemeth side now, tags back in Ryan for some Dosie Doe Wringers into a Double Clothesline. Rope runs, both miss and then Double Lariat stereo tags spot. Ace has early control of the stereo tag, Russian Leg Sweep into Click Click Boom. Ryan tries to run interreference but eats a Leaping Bulldog. Nic tries something and then eats a Triangle Kick from Ace for 2! Nic eats a Double Knee to the face, then the Spike Brainbuster, but Ryan breaks up the pinfall! Jumping DDT on Ace, Cutter from Bey on Ryan and then Nic comes to long enough to hit a Superkick as everyone lays on the mat.

Superkick is blocked by Ace, Roll-Up, no, Face Stomp, near fall and Ace keeps searching for how to win. Tags in Bey, 1-2-Sweet, but Ryan picks Ace’s foot from outside. Ace tries a Plancha on Ryan, but Ryan just slides in the ring to avoid the attack. Ryan lands a Jumping Flatliner and Nic with Danger Zone for the win!

 

Overall Score: 5/10

I mean, for all intents and purposes this show did kind of what it was supposed to. It got across some stories, it set things up for tomorrow,  but the show was paced a little slow. The some spots were clunky, some matches felt necessary but unwanted…and the Hardy Compound thing was…interesting. It really depends on your tolerance for campy and silly. This one was more Scooby Doo than the previous ones, Eddie turned into a legit Werewolf, Reby beheaded Alisha, Myers got laid out by a skeleton and Maxell and Broken Matt allowed Moose to regain the power of 69. If you go in expecting references and fun, this was good. If you go in expecting some kind of twisted mystical puzzlebox…you’re gonna have a bad time.

The main event was a pretty damn good TV main event though. Things are set up a little awkwardly for the PPV, but I guess we’ll have to see how it plays out. Also curious if Tatum Paxley is gonna answer Jordynne’s open challenge or if they go a different route.

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

Athena’s Minion is still stacking up wins while stacking up bodies, but now she runs into the Subspace Sweetheart, who was also part of that Women’s World TV title tournament. Will Moone find a way to eclipse the Star(kz)? Or will Billie make her Overlord proud by going 11-0?

The Code of Honor is upheld, the bell rings, and the fans rally. The two approach, Billie dodges the haymaker to BOOT Moone! Billie grins, whips Moone to a corner, then runs in. Moone dodges, says eat her space dust, and she CROSSBODIES in the corner! Moone goes to the apron, runs Billie side to side to bum her off buckles, then hurries back in. Moone winds up, but Billie gets under the lariat. Billie waistlocks, Moone pries the hold, but Billie pulls hair! The ref reprimands, but Billie cravats to KNEE SMASH! Moone falls over, the fans cheer, and Billie reels Moone in. Billie snap suplexes Moone, covers, TWO!

Billie watches Moone go to a corner, then fires off forearm after forearm! The ref counts, Billie snapmares Moone, then KICKS her in the back! Moone writhes, the fans fire up, and Billie says the kick was good. Billie stalks Moone, kicks her around, taunts her, and brings her up. Moone ROCKS Billie, Billie DECKS Moone! Billie puts Moone in a corner, whips corner to corner, and Moone hits buckles hard! Billie stomps away on Moone, then gets in the ref’s face as he counts at her. Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

Billie trips Moone, rains down furious forearms, but the ref reprimands Billie on how she’s holding Moone down by her neck! Billie tells the ref not to tell her what to do! The fans fire up and Billie snarls as she goes back to Moone. Billie clamps onto Moone for the motorcycle stretch! Moone endures, fights up, arm-drags free, and then blocks a lariat to ELBOW! And ROLLING ELBOW! Moone wrenches, CLUBS away on Billie, and then steps over. Moone says finger licking good, and she MULE KICKS Billie right down! Billie bails out, fans fire up as Moone builds speed, and she DIVES! Not the cleanest but Billie still falls!

Moone blocks, but gets the REBOUND ENZIGIRI! Moone is down, Billie goes up, but Moone rises! SHORYUKEN! Moone climbs up, brings Billie up, but Billie fights with body shots!

The fans boo but Billie clamps onto Moone with the HALF NELSON CHINBAR! Moone taps, Billie wins!

Moone put up a fight but Starkz still shines as she checks another one off the list. But will Billie be in for a fight when ROH goes to Arlington, Texas for Death Before Dishonor?

 

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! Jacoby FLAPJACKS Lee off the apron, but then asks for a microphone? Jacoby says, “My friends, my followers, my faithful flock right here in Las Vegas, Nevada, praise be to HE! And HE is ME.” The fans boo instead. Jacoby goes back to Lee, puts him in, and tags Comoroto. Wow, that was all? Comoroto wrenches Lee, Lee kicks free, and he tags in Shane! The fans fire up for Big Bad Shaney T. Boy, and he steps to Comoroto. Shane SLAPS Comoroto!

Fans chant “MEAT! MEAT! MEAT!” as Shane eggs Comoroto on. Comoroto shoves Shane, Shane shoves back, and they RAM shoulders! Shane nods, runs, and RAMS Comoroto! “MEAT!” Comoroto RAMS back! “MEAT!” Shane JABS, eggs Comoroto on, so Comoroto runs in! Shane throws Comoroto out! Jacoby encourages Comoroto, and the fans fire up, too! Comoroto skins the cat! But then Shane is there, to bob ‘n’ weave and HEADBUTT! And URENAGE! And SPLASH! Cover, TWO! Comoroto is still in this but Shane tags Lee. Lee runs to BOOT Jacoby, but that upsets Comrooto! Comoroto CLOBBERS Lee, BLASTS Shane, then scoops Lee!

Comoroto spins and SLAMS Lee, runs up and JUMP ELBOW DROPS! The fans fire up with Comoroto, and he says “Save us, Jacoby~!” Comoroto runs in at the corner to SPLASH, then Jacoby tags in! POWERSLAM, Jacoby takes the pin, TWO!! Lee survives because Jacoby took too long, and now Jacoby tags Comoroto back in. Lee runs up to SHOTGUN Jacoby! Comoroto is mad again, and he scoops Lee. Lee slips free, tags Shane, and then baits Comoroto in! BUCKLE SHOT! Shane waits on Comoroto to get up, and then KNOCKOUT PUNCH! Cover, STP wins!

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions, by pinfall

Lee takes Jacoby’s cowboy hat to do a dance, then throws it away. Will ROH soon belong to STP from top to bottom?

 

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! Action snapmares Alex, then slides, but Alex ducks the Penalty Kick to roll Action up! ONE, and Action arm-drags Alex! Then JAPANESE ARM-DRAGS, then DROPKICKS! The fans cheer, and Action wrenches Alex’s arm.

Action brings Alex over, tags in Darius, and Darius takes the handoff to wrench. Darius whips, Alex reverses, but Darius turns arm-drag into backslide, ONE! Alex runs up, into the arm-drag! Darius has the armlock, then he wrenches. Tag to Dante, he CLUBS an arm and snapmares Alex down, for Darius to basement dropkick the arm! The fans cheer, Dante covers, ONE!

Reynolds runs up, The Infantry dodges and Castle is in, to get around and SLAM him! The fans fire up as The Infantry and Castle pose together. But then Archer & The Righteous attack! The ref reprimands but they knock down The Infantry as well as Castle, and even the rest of The Dark Order! Vincent feeds Uno to Dutch for the SCRAPBUSTER!

Top Flight storms in but Archer BOOTS Darius, SLAMS Dante, then sends Darius to the SCRAPBUSTER! Action runs up but into a SIDEWALK SLAM! Archer hauls Bravo up into a dragon sleeper but Dean CLUBS him! Archer just frowns, and then he grabs Dean by the neck! CHOKE SLAM DDT COMBO! The fans fire up, and Vinnie snaps his fingers. SLIDING FLATLINER on Uno! Vinnie tags himself in off Uno, then runs up on Dean. Dean fires body shots and forearms, then whips. Vinnie reverses, both men run, and Vinnie CLOBBERS Dean! Vinnie drags Dean up and over, bumps him off buckles and fires body shots!

Tag to Dutch and Dutch UPPERCUTS Dean! Castle protests but Archer smothers Dean! Dutch smiles and snaps his suspenders, before running in, into a BOOT!

They DUMP Archer out, but Archer grabs Uno! Action SUPERKICKS Archer down! The Righteous regroups outside, some of the others head that way, and Alex swings on Action. Action dodges, SOBATS, then reels Alex in. Action suplexes, Alex slips free, and Alex waistlocks. Action drops down, slips under, mule kicks then front kicks!

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!

Abadon checks her neck, dodges Diamante, then tags Frost! Frost fires up as she rallies on Daimante! ELBOW, then a tilt-o-whirl into the sunset flip! ONE, but Frost BUZZSAWS!

The fans fire up with Frost and she runs to the corner. GAMANGIRI! Diamante sits down, Frost goes corner to corner, handspring CANNONBALL! The fans fire up again and Frost covers, TWO! Diamante stays in this but Frost stays on her with a wrench. Tag to Leyla and Frost snapmares Diamante. Diamante ducks the buzzsaw, but not the HEEL KICK! Leyla then waistlocks to GERMAN SUPLEX! Bridging cover, Windsor & Marina break it! Frost ROUNDHOUSES Marina! Frost goes out but Marina SWEEPS the legs! Windsor tags in, Leyla DECKS Marina, but then sees Windsor waiting! Leyla takes a swing, but into the RIGHT ANGLE SLAM!

Windsor hurries to cover, but Abadon breaks it! Diamante SPEARS Abadon! Windsor hauls Leyla up, but Leyla wrenches to SAIDO! Leyla puts Windsor in the drop zone, then goes up, but Diamante distracts the ref so Marina can YANK Leyla down! SHINING WINDSOR! And then the fisherman and a twist, LIBERTINE DRIVER! Cover, Windsor’s team wins!

Winners: Marina Shafir, Alex Windsor & Diamante, by pinfall

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
