Ciampa speaks.

“Tonight, I become a three-time NXT Champion. That is a legacy that I am very, very proud of. But this one feels a little bit different.” Maybe it’s Ziggler tearing down the brand Ciampa’s given his heart and soul to. Or is it the respect Ciampa has for Bron? Who knows. But this is so much more than the NXT title. Ciampa didn’t think he’d ever say that, because for so long, that title has been his life. But a win tonight means he is champion, and he is going to the biggest stage and in the main event. It is the ghost he continues to chase because it is a feeling he can’t describe.

So Bron and Ziggler can fight over being 2A and 2B, but never before has there been this big of a gap between who is number one and number two, and you are looking at number one! TOMMASO CIAMPA! SOON TO BE… Three-time NXT Champion. Ciampa heads out, but will going to Dallas as the top dog?

 

Tiffany Stratton takes selfies.

The Spoiled Rich Girl is heading to gorilla for her next singles match, but Sarray is lurking just behind. Will the Warrior of the Sun get payback for Tiffany’s bullying?

 

Someone attacked the Creed Brothers?!

Julius & Brutus are down but they’re furiously trying to get back up. Malcolm Bivens asks what happened and who did this to them? Did Imperium make sure they’re going to still be NXT Tag Team Champions tonight?

NXT returns and the medics attend to the Creeds in the trainer’s room, and Raquel is brought in next. Will any of these teams be okay moving on towards Stand & Deliver?

 

Tiffany Stratton VS Fallon Henley!

Daddy’s little rich girl doesn’t like people telling her no, and that’s what set her off against Sarray last week. Will she make sure Fallon doesn’t say no to letting her win?

The bell rings, they tie up, and Fallon wrenches, Tiffany handsprings through, then wrenches back. Fallon arm-drags, but then Tiffany blocks the next one to fireman’s carry!

Payback on the bully complete! Fallon benefits from that, Briggs & Brooks are even here to celebrate with her! Will this momentum help Henley hone in on bigger and better?

 

Welcome to Andre Chase University.

Andre Chase says that at Chase U, you perform like you practice. When they rehearsed, it was smooth. But in actuality, these dumbasses sucked. It knocked Chase off his game. They didn’t just drop the ball, they let the whole team down. But they can turn negatives into positives. The beacon of light as Bodhi Hayward. He took one for the team. Anything for Mr. Chase! But that eye looks bad. Shouldn’t he get it checked out? Oh, sorry, Jamie, when did you graduate and become a damn doctor? Bodhi, how many fingers is Chase holding up? One, sir! And Jamie, how many is Chase holding up now? It’s the middle finger…

Chase tells Jamie not to disrespect him or he’ll beat the hell outta him! Then he pegs Jamie with the basketball! Any questions?

 

Carmelo Hayes & Trick Williams are back in the barber shop.

Trick says don’t worry about the social media. But Strong missed. Grimes missed. And Dunne shoots worst than Westbrook. They all came up short against the A Champ. Melo doesn’t keep score, he keeps scoring. But it ain’t easy making all these suckers relevant. But here’s what he came up with: The Golden Rules. He’s got the gold, so he makes the rules. Melo don’t miss. He pulls up like Steph from the logo. Melo has climbed rung by rung to the top, so let’s run it back in the match this title was introduced in: a ladder match! The boys are goin’ to Dallas. But who are the opponent? Oh, like one? Two? Nah, bro. Three? NO!

How about ten? What? No, there’s not even 10 on the level below him. But make it four, and they all have to qualify. Numbers don’t lie. Check the stats, analytics. Why is it a ladder match? People get hurt in those! But they’re doing this cuz Melo can. The mission is to Stand at the top and Deliver the performance of a lifetime to prove he is the GREAETST North American Champion ever. And that’s all it is, and that it’s gon’ be. Melo is built for this, but is he building a stacked deck without even knowing it?

 

NXT presents an all-new Lashing Out.

Lash Legend is back with her show, and tonight’s guest says she wants to talk ’bout it. So please welcome Nikkita Lyons. Settle down, now. So, Lyons, Lash heard her journey is amazing. Rockstar dad, groupie mom? Was she following Lyons’ dad or just everyone’s groupie? Lyons’ mom is a free spirit who taught her not to be judgmental. Lash says Lyons has everyone else fooled, but Lyons thinks she’s all hot. We know why Lyons is worldwide. And Lash wasn’t done talking, okay? Look whose show you’re on. Don’t put your finger in her face. Oh? Then what is she and those butt implants gonna do?

Lyons says the only thing natural about Lash is the crap she’s full of! Lash says that’s all the time they have, play the music. These two argue as we cut away, will they look to settle this in the ring?

 

Backstage interview with Imperium.

McKenzie talks with Barthel & Aichner about the attack on the Creeds. They would never taint the honor of this great sport by resorting to such tactics. It is a great shame that the Creeds got attacked before Imperium got their hands on them. Aichner says Creeds can talk about heritage and pedigree, but that didn’t protect them, did it? They weren’t ready. But then MSK steps up! Lee & Carter see what’s going on here. If the Creeds can’t, MSK will take that spot, take back the titles, and then give the Creeds the chance Imperium denied them. They all argue, but it sounds like we have a deal! Will the Men’s Dusty Cup runner-ups run it back and get back on top?

 

Briggs & Brooks celebrate with Fallon more.

She’s thankful but do they know what happened to the Creeds? Legado del Fantasma walk over and the boys remember, it happened in the parking lot. It had to be Legaod, right? Santos Escobar asks what these clowns are talking about. With all due respect, Legado’s make the NXT parking lot the most dangerous place on earth> Mendoza says when Legado attacks, they make sure everyone knows. And Wilde says didn’t the Creeds beat Brooks & Briggs? Brooks says Elektra had to be the one. Elektra says he can’t be mad at her that Brooks can’t get laid. He’s working on it!

Fallon asks if Briggs & Brooks really did it. Briggs makes sure Brooks understands, she doesn’t mean “it.” But no, they wouldn’t attack the Creeds. They’re good guys. But then, whodunnit?

“I walk into this Triple Threat as the NXT Champion. But as the underdog. See, Ciampa and Ziggler, they have all the experience, all the accomplishments, all the notoriety. Me? I’m just a guy who shows up on a daily basis and busts his ass in the film room, in the weight room, in the practice ring, because I love this business!” When Bron looks at the title, he thinks about the number of days that he’s held it.

Persia said she supported her relationship. No, she said she carried this team! Well someone had to. So that was why Indi was champ without Persia first?

North American Championship qualifiers begin next week!

Cameron Grimes VS Santos Escobar will be the first of the four, who gets a second chance at the “A Title” through Stand & Deliver

 

NXT Championship Triple Threat: Bron Breakker VS Tommaso Ciampa VS Dolph Ziggler!

NXT returns and Ciampa makes his entrance first. Then Bron makes his entrance, but doesn’t smash up anything like he has for his other big title match entrances. The introductions are made, the belt is raised, and we see who stands tall to move on to Stand & Deliver!

Bron and Ciampa keep their eyes on Ziggler, Ziggler fakes superkick but then bails out. Ciampa and Bron go to pursue but then Ciampa turns Bron around to DECK him! Roll up, Ziggler breaks it up! Ziggler rains down fists on both guys, then brings Bron up to whip. Bron reverses and Ziggler hits buckles hard!

Ciampa runs, redirects Bron but Bron hurdles. Things speed up, Ziggler jumps in, into a SPINEBUSTER!

Bron CLOBBERS Ciampa and fans bark for him. Bron drags Ciampa up, then gets Ziggler. Bron double suplexes Ziggler and Ciampa! Bron stomps Ziggler, stalks Ciampa to a corner, and Bron fires haymakers. Bron puts Ciampa up top, climbs up to join him, but Ciampa slips out and trips Bron up! Ziggler shoves Bron down for good measure, then dodges Ciampa’s boot! Ciampa stops the superkick, fakes chop, but Ziggler trips Ciampa before the double underhooks! Jackknife, TWO! Ciampa gets around, spins Ziggler and ROCKS him! Ciampa trips Ziggler but Ziggler kicks free of the catapult!

Ziggler fires off in the corner, whips corner to corner but Ciampa comes back to LARIAT! Ciampa drags Ziggler by his legs, to CATAPULT him at the corner! Ziggler hits buckles hard then falls, and Ciampa keeps moving to FLY out onto Bron! Fans cheer as Ciampa claps and pats himself on the back! The Pulse of NXT drags the Big Booty Nephew back into the ring and then he gets the Show-Off in, too. “Ciampa’s gonna kill~ you” as he goes corner to corner to give them clothesline after clothesline! He keeps going, dodges their clotheslines, but Ziggler DROPKCISK Ciampa down! Bron CLOBBERS Ziggler!

All three men are down as NXT goes picture in picture. Bron stirs and Ziggler crawls. Ciampa shakes out the cobwebs and he stomps Ziggler out of the ring! Ciampa goes out after him, brings him up, and SMACKS Ziggler off the desk! Bron flops out of the ring, Ciampa gets him up to whip, but Bron reverses! Ciampa hits steel steps hard! Ciampa clutches the back of a thigh, Bron catches his breath, and Bron heads over to Ciampa. Bron gets Ciampa up and in, but Ciampa kicks low! Bron throws haymakers for that, but Ciampa hits back! Ciampa CHOPS Bron, Bron flops against ropes but Ciampa brings him around to bump off buckles.

Ciampa throws haymakers, sits Bron down, but Ziggler kicks Ciampa and bumps him off buckles! And more buckles! Ziggler stomps a mudhole into Ciampa, then climbs up to talk trash. Ziggler BITES Ciampa’s head! Then rains down fists! NXT returns to single picture as Ziggler goes way past 10! Ziggler swivels the hips, but Ciampa stops him before 20! Atomic drop! Bron is there, he OVERHEAD Belly2Belly suplexes Ziggler! Ciampa kicks Bron, whips him, but Bron reverses. Ciampa comes back into a FLAPJACK! The straps come down, Bron gets Ciampa in the STEINER RECLINER!! Ciampa endures and fans rally up!

Ziggler gets in to put on a SLEEPER! Bron does his best to hold onto Ciampa but he loses his grip! Ciampa is free, Ziggler becomes a backpack! Bron stays on his feet, but then drops back onto Ciampa! All three men are down again and fans rally up! Ziggler hurries over to bring Bron up with a facelock. Ziggler throws forearms but Bron gives them back. Ziggler ROCKS Bron, Bron ROCKS Ziggler! Ciampa ROCKS Bron! Bron and Ziggler hit Ciampa, Ciampa hits them back! Ciampa haymakers, CHOPS, and repeat between the others! Bron ROCKS Ciampa again, but Ziggler fires off on Bron!

Winner: Dolph Ziggler, by pinfall (NEW NXT Champion)

Bron can’t believe it! He and Ciampa are on the losing end of a GLORIOUS screw job! The Show-Off literally does steal this title! What does this mean for Stand & Deliver?


My Thoughts:

What a exciting and shocking Roadblock edition of NXT! Great stuff from the Women’s Dusty Cup here, putting RawDown’s Women Tag Division to shame. Dakota & Wendy continue to work together well, and I should’ve figured Toxic Attraction would screw Raquel & Cora over. They fear Raquel and they basically sideline her, but then it was awesome for Cora to attack Mandy in the lounge. Also, it was great for Malik & Edris to replace those butler bodyguard guys. KC Squared VS Shirai & KLR was awesome stuff, and I figured KLR & Shirai advance. Scary Geniuses VS #KaiChoo is going to be a really fun finals match, I would love seeing either team take on Gigi & Jacy.

I was a bit surprised they had an attack angle for the men’s tag titles, but it did add some intrigue to things throughout the night. For one, it gave Brooks & Briggs more of a reason to get involved with Legado. That should be a good match for like, the WrestleMania week go-home. Imperium VS MSK was as great as before, but the fans really wanted the Creeds in this. Creeds going after both teams could just be because they don’t know who attacked them and therefore don’t trust any of them, or it is a tease that MSK did the attack. That’d be very Johnny Gargano attacking Aleister Black. Also, WWE sets up another Triple Threat Tag. They surprisingly seem to like tag wrestling these days.

That Last Man Standing was some great stuff, YEAH! But of course, Waller being the Heel, he has a sidekick help him win. I will say, though, Waller leaning on Sanga and Sanga helping him stand was a very clever way for it to work. Sarray got some good payback on Tiffany and they’re obviously having a match. That is definitely go-home material. I do like that Fallon got a win off that and is all but part of a trio with Brooks & Briggs. Duke Hudson has successfully broken up Indi and Persia, they’re having their match, that is going to be pretty good stuff, and I really hope we get the Mixed Tag of Duke & Persia VS #InDex.

We got a decent segment out of Xyon, Draco, Harland & Gacy, that is definitely going to be a tag match for the go-home. A-Kid coming to NXT is interesting just on the timing. That kinda takes some power out of the NXT UK roster, right as he is getting into story with Die Familie. Maybe AK has recorded all the material he has with Die Familie and is able to do this while those segments play out. Plus, I like that promo we got out of Jacket Time. Kushida VS A-Kid is going to be a technical masterpiece to say the least.

Andre Chase has another hilarious promo Tony D’Angelo has a good promo but it’s hard to be sure what the message was. Still no clue as to who he is aiming for, but maybe he just gets in on the North American Championship ladder match. They’re going with just five guys, not six, but I do like that we’ll be getting qualifiers. Grimes VS Escobar is going to be great, either one can get in, and I look forward to seeing who else gets in.

And then while we got good promos from each guy, that Triple Threat main event was awesome! Yes, Bron did botch tackling Ciampa the first time but they redid the spot so he could nail it before the end. And in the biggest twist, Ziggler wins! Granted it was thanks to Roode, but I still didn’t think it’d happen. I’m sure Bron somehow gets his rematch at Stand & Deliver, it’ll give fans just learning about him after seeing him on Raw a chance to see him climb back up, but I’m surprised he’s going to join the two-time champion club so quickly. He’s already going to be on par with Ciampa, Samoa Joe, Shinsuke Nakamura and Finn Balor just on that, but I suppose this is the power of a Vince McMahon push.

My Score: 8.8/10

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.

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.

Billie storms back after Moone, whips corner to corner, but Moone stops herself! Moone ELBOWS Billie down, then hurries up on her.

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! Dante keeps on the arm, tags Action, and Action takes the handoff to snapmare, then ghost pin! TWO, but Action whips. Alex reverses, Action ducks ‘n’ dodges, but Alex ELBOWS Action down! The fans cheer, and Alex bumps Action off buckles to tag Silver.

Silver tags Uno, the fans cheer and Dark Order whips Uno in to SPLASH Action! Uno then feeds Action to a double hip toss, cradle and DOUBLE FACEBUSTER! Alex & Uno get Action up, then Silver hops on! The Dark Order flexes while holding Action down, and then Silver & Reynolds step away for Uno to RUSSIAN LEG SWEEP! Cover, TWO! Uno keeps on Action, ROCKS him with a right, then whips him to ropes. Action rolls off Uno’s back but Carlie Bravo tags in off him! Action bails out, Bravo runs in, then dodges Uno to JAB! JAB! JAB! Uno shoves, Bravo ducks and gets around, to JAB, JAB, JAB!

Uno shoves again, Bravo gets around again, full nelson and spin, but Uno shouts “STOP~!” Then he ROCKS Bravo with a right! The fans fire up, Uno whips, but Bravo jukes and dodges, mule kick to the leg! Tag to Captain Shawn Dean and he STEP-IN KNEE STRIKES Uno down! 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!

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!

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
