Добре си го дръпнал, ама си намерил кога да ги почнеш - те са буквално пред спиране, доколкото зная. Последното ТВ шоу ще бъде на 4 април.

Принципно по ТВ шоуто тук-там се намира по някой интересен мач, уж се развиват и вражди, но в общи линии е абсолютно излишно - освен за exhibition и да представят таланти го нямат за нищо. Най-забавни са, когато tease-ват мачове за титли и вероятна смяна - колкото и да е добър мачът, победителят е ясен на абсолютно всички, защото НИКОГА титла няма да се смени по ТВ. Уж направиха една ТВ титла за тая цел, но и нея си я разиграват по event-ите и iPPV-тата и сега изобщо нямам идея за какво им е.

ROH “Defy or Deny” 3.18.2011 Results

"The Prodigy" Mike Bennett and "Brutal" Bob Evans came out unannounced at the start of the show to hype up Bennett's TV Title match with Christopher Daniels, as well as get his persona across with the audience. Bennett, being a local NE guy, heeled on the city, though he did have some fans in attendance. Steve Corino came out and got in Bennett's face for being the brash, overconfident newcomer, while Bennett responded that Corino was just a washed up old man teaming with Grizzly Redwood. Corino, now on his "path of redemption" warned Bennett not to continue his ways, because if he does, he might wind up having to deal with Corino down the line.

Mark Briscoe beat Kyle O'Reilly. Very good opening match, and O'Reilly continues to impress. Lots of near falls and the crowd was into the match, which ended with Mark hit a flying elbowdrop for the pin.

All Night Express beat Corino and Redwood. ANX played heels, while Corino did a few comedy spots (refusing to go to the top rope, getting a "one more time" chant after nailing a dropkick and then failing at the second attempt). Face miscommunication saw Corino nail Redwood with a clothesline by accident, leaving him prone for the ANX to finish him off with a backbreaker/kneedrop combo.

Prince Nana and The Embassy are out to introduce Tomasso Ciampa (another NE indy guy breaking into ROH). Ciampa and Adam Cole had a decent match, the highlight of which being Embassy valet Mia Yim nailing Adam Cole with a superkick on the floor. Cole hit a nice wheelbarrow suplex into a lungblower, but was soon felled by CIampa's powerbomb into a lungblower finisher.

Chris Hero (w/ Sara Del Rey and Shane Hagadorn) beat TJ Perkins. Build slowly and a lot of people didn't seem to react or know TJ, but they got into the match as it went on. Del Rey seems to be more "dolled up" these days, as it looks like her hair was different and her makeup was done. Some great exchanges, including Hero nailing some hard elbows and TJ nailing kicks, before he was felled by yet another elbow in the end. The crowd gave Perkins a standing ovation after the match.

The Bravado Brothers came out unannounced and cut a quick promo before taking on Matt Taven (another NE guy) and another guy. I never heard his name announced, and only knew Taven from Northeast Wrestling (and the fact that "Taven" was on his tights). Basically a backdrop for the Bravados to showcase themselves and go over.

Eddie Edwards beat Michael Elgin. This was my first time seeing Elgin live, and he certainly impressed. Great match, with hometown boy Edwards getting the win. At one point Truth Martini interfered and Edwards put both Elgin and Martini in the Achilles Lock simultaneously. Edwards also took an Oklahoma Stampede on the floor after being caught on a moonsault attempt. Elgin has a great look and certainly held up his end of the match. I'm not sold on Martini, as to me he comes off as a wannabe Don Callis, right down to having the same look. Edwards got a huge ovation both before and after the match.

Christopher Daniels beat Mike Bennett to retain the ROH TV Title. The crowd was vocally pro-Daniels, save for three hecklers who were firmly behind Bennett. Most of the crowd reactions consisted of Daniels chants (to overpower the three hecklers, who Daniels acknowledged at several points) and "you can't wrestle" chants towards Bennett. Bennett, to me, seems bland in ROH. He's not terrible, but he also doesn't stand out for the gimmick they're running with him. It's like Ted DiBiase Jr. minus the famous family name. Daniels got the win with the BME after Corino ran out to prevent Bennett from using the TV Title as a weapon. Post-match Corino handed a wary Daniels back the TV Title. Daniels then celebrated by going around ringside slapping hands, and making sure to dish some verbal payback out to the three clowns who were riding him during the match.

Davey Richards defeated Claudio Castagnoli in the match of the night. Great match, with the only "blown spot" being one that may have been planned, where Davey went for a superplex but both men spilled to the floor instead. Davey must have nailed him with a hundred kicks during the course of this match. Finish came when Richards came off with a double stomp, then ran up to the opposite corner and hit an SSP. Both Edwards and Richards made belt motions as if they're going after Roderick Strong's ROH World Title, so it seems hints may have been dropped that the American Wolves are going to have to face each other sooner or later if one wants a title shot.

Roderick won the "Defy or Deny" elimination match over Jay Briscoe, Homicide, and El Generico. The first part of this match was worked like a Parejas Incredibles match, with Strong telling current rival Homicide they should work together, forcing former rivals Briscoe and Generico to pair up. At one point Strong mimicked Homicde's rolling suplexes (the tribute to Eddie Guerrero) and Homicide made like he was going to stomp him down, but held back. A few minutes later, Homicde had enough and unloaded on Strong, and that's when all hell started breaking loose! Homicide nailed a dive that send him into the first row, while Generico nailed a flip dive on the other side of the ring. Homicide went out first after a Jay Driller, and Briscoe followed him back to the locker room a few minutes later courtesy of Strong. Crowd got hot for Generico vs. Strong, hoping to see the beloved masked man take the win, but Michael Elgin ran in and powerbombed Generico, enabling Roderick to hit a kick to the face and pick up the win. So now all three men cannot get title shots for as long as Roderick is the champion. Finish felt to me like a TV finish rather than the way you'd end a standard show, but the fans got their happy ending when Edwards, Richards, and Daniels made the save for Generico after Strong and Elgin continued to beat on him. I had figured Generico would win and get the title shot, but I guess there are other plans in store.

ROH “Manhattan Mayhem IV” 3.19.2011 Results

Tomasso Ciampa vs. Grizzly Redwood

They did some early spots early where Redwood tried to overpower Ciampa but it wasn't working. They had some good back and forth wrestling on the mat. They went to the outside but I couldn't see what they were doing.

Back in the ring, Ciampa nailed Redwood with a flapjack. Ciampa began working on Redwood's arm. He tossed Redwood into the turnbuckles but was kicked off. Redwood used a Crucifix for a two count. Ciampa cut him off and began stomping away at him in the corner. He drilled Redwood in the corner with a big kick and covered him for a two count. Ciampa went for his finisher but Redwood slipped out and grabbed him with a sleeper. Redwood came off the ropes with a Thesz Press and then nailed a rana for a two count. Ciampa drilled him with a stiff clothesline and covered him for a two count. Redwood came back with a series of kicks. Ciampa came back with a powerbomb across the knees for the pin.

Your winner, Tomasso Ciampa!

The Embassy all put the boots to Redwood but Steve Corino hit the ring. Fans chanted "We want Steen" and he responded that he does too. Corino told Redwood that he would be there for him but now he wanted to know if Redwood would be there for him as well.

Mike Bennett's music hit and he came to the ring with Bob Evans. Bennett took the mic and handed it to Evans. Evans said that he's had enough of washed up athletes. Bennett took the mic and said it's only old man Corino and he could handle this. He said that tonight was the night was Corino was going to fall off the wagon. Corino said that he was going to say this to him in the back but instead he'll say it in front of everyone. He said that there's not one place in the world that hates him more than NYC but at least he's not from Boston. He said that was his go-home line and that if facing Bennett means that his road to pro wrestling recovery, he'll let Bennet pin him.

Bennet said that Corino will fight him if he has to drag Corino into it. Bennett demanded that Corino face him and Corino apologized, saying that he can't do this. He said it took him a long time to admit what an a**hole he was and he didn't want to do this, because he's been doing the right thing and he's sorry. Bennett kept goading Corino, who finally said he was going to regret it, but ring the bell.

Steve Corino vs. Mike Bennett

Bob Evans into the corner then nailed a Uranage and scored the pin.

Your winner, Mike Bennett!

Jim Cornette came out to cut a promo. He joked that here in ROH, their main events last more than a minute and a half. Fans chanted "F*** TNA." He said that if fans still want to actually spend money on PPV, ROH will have two Internet PPVs in April in Atlanta. He said that he had one more announcement to make and that's that the last event for ROH in the Manhattan Center, because they have to move downstairs to the Hammerstein Ballroom. He pushed the 6/26 date in the Hammerstein Ballroom and said the company is planning the "biggest event in Ring of Honor history." He said Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin as well as everyone on the ROH roster are scheduled for the show. He said that the theme of the event will be everyone trying to prove they are the "Best in the World."

The Briscoes attacked The Express afterward and left them laying. A number of wrestlers from the back hit the ring but The Briscoes laid them out as well.

It was designed to be a double turn and it seemed to work based on the crowd reactions.

Pure Wrestling Rules: ROH TV champion Christopher Daniels vs. Davey Richards

Последните три мача събудиха интереса ми към ROH и определено са нещо, което имам желание да гледам. Интересно ми е защо тръгнаха в такава посока и Eddie Edwards взе титлата преди Richards. Знам, че му дадоха солиден рейн с TV титлата, но това стига ли? Логика виждам само в една евентуална вражда между вълците, която да завърши с коронясването на Ричърдс за шампион.

Link to post

И мен точно последната част ме шокира поне първоначално. На практика в предното шоу се премахват абсолютно всякакви претенденти за титлата (тъй като единствените правдоподобни опоненти до този момент са Homicide и El Generico), а в това директно му намират нов, заедно със смяна. Strong беше доста силен шампион, дори изненадващо, предвид че му дадоха титлата само колкото да я разкарат от Black, жалко, че не можа да я задържи повече, но на този етап явно нямат друг избор (както казах - досега се погрижиха да разкарат всякакви видове претенденти). Richards ще я стигне евентуално, но първо задължително трябва да мине през Strong.

Между другото, ако броим TV титлата за нещо, Eddie Edwards току-що стана първия Triple Crown winner в историята на ROH.

И като говорим за силни претенденти - кога ще намерят отбор, който да вземе титлите на Kings of Wrestling, и най-накрая да вкарат Claudio и Hero в картината на световната титла? И двамата са МАСИВНИ звезди в сравнение с това, което бяха към 2007, например (а тогава също се навъртаха около нея), особено Claudio, който е ДЗВЕР във всеки смисъл на думата. Изобщо не бих отказал един негов run с нея.

И аз си мислех да го спомена в предния си пост, но не ми се пишеше. Забелязвам тенденция в последните месеци (защото чета само резултатите) Kings of Wrestling да имат интригуващи (да не използвам "dream") мачове срещу отбори като LAX тук, The World's Greatest Tag Team преди това, мисля, че и с още един силен отбор имаха мач, но не мога да се сетя кой. В репортите пише, че мачовете са страхотни, но май повечето от тях не са за златото. А и да са шансът Клаудио и Хиро да загубят титлите срещу един непостоянен отбор ми се струва много малък. Но от друга страна кой отбор в ROH в момента може да вземе титлите? The All Night Express? Briscoes (OТНОВО)? Струва ми се добър вариант да прехвърлят титлите на някой по-нов отбор (дори да са Кинг и Тайтъс) с надеждата, че подобна победа над шампионите ще ги издигне. Няма отбор на нивото на KOW в момента, който да има смисъл да вземе титлите (изключвам Бриско Брос поради очевидни причини).

Защо съм останал с впечатлението, че WGTT бяха подписали с ROH? Те не са ли вече редовни? Както и да е, ако не са – абсолютно си прав. Без да им гледам ростера се сещам за All Night Express, Briscoes, Bravado Brothers, Cole & O'Reilly и House of Truth. ANE са добър избор, да, въпреки че според мен силно куцат откакто Austin Aries се махна, с него вече щяха да са доста по-далеч. От Briscoes ми е писнало, а получиха 1,005 шанса да вземат тия титли, вече става смешно. Bravado Brothers не знам дали някой ги взима насериозно изобщо. Cole и O'Reilly са на път да станат стабилен отбор, но засега са само на степен 'впечатляваме ги' и ще мине доста време, докато гледат на тях като на нещо голямо. HoT пък просто страдат от присъствието на Strong, защото всичкият акцент пада върху него, а те са просто 'наоколо'. Сега, когато не е шампион може и да стане нещо, но те не са се явявали от толкова време, че едва ли. Помня, че и Embassy все още бяха в компанията, но те са по-голяма шега и от Briscoe. Миналата година прекараха почти цялата в градене на два отбора – Cabana & Generico и Steen & Corino, и двата щяха да са на нивото на KOW в този момент, но уви.

Единственият начин, за който се сещам в този момент е чрез upset, както направиха със световната титла, но дори и да се спрат на това, ще е след 2-3 месеца, иначе се събират много изненади накуп.

~ Много забавен кард. В кой смисъл на думата вие си решете сами. Явно на Strong му е време да му върнат за всяка една победа, докато е бил шампион – първо Richards, после и Generico ще го клати из ринга.

~ Имам чувството, че KOW всъщност са застрашени да загубят титлите си срещу WGTT – както вече казах, това са единствения отбор, който е квалифициран да ги бие (поради това, че са го правили и предния път и резултатът им е 1-1). Това чувство... хм, май е вълнение. Интересно. Лично мнение – нека ги бият, после KOW да се разпадат и Claudio да започва main event killing sphree. Този човек просто трябва да преуспее самостоятелно.

~ Colt Cabana vs. Dave Taylor = comedy gold, усещам го.

~ Харесва ми как вкарват joshi звезди в шоуто, но едва ли ще е нещо трайно – най-много да ги видим още веднъж-два пъти, докато се сетят, че в ROH ако няма Lacey, значи няма и женска дивизия.

~ На Cole и O'Reilly явно им се дава шанс да блеснат този уикенд. Предполагам ще загубят и двата мача, но нека видим представянето първо.

~ Eddie Edwards vs. Chris Daniels е много добра идея за първа защита на ROH титлата. Daniels беше този, който детронира Edwards като TV шампион и сега заплашва да направи същото. Вече сме виждали, че може, така че има известна тръпка в мача, въпреки че едва ли ще загуби на първа защита и то от човек, който също може да стане Triple Crown winner. Двама TCW не се правят за един месец.

Или вече предвиждам бъдещето, или резултатите от тези мачове стават все по-очевадни. Единствените по-приятни изненади като гледам са SHIMMER мачовете и победата на Elgin над Generico. Strong явно ще го ритат обратно към мидкарда, сега предполагам е ред на Homicide, a после и на Jay Briscoe. Говорейки за Briscoe, „heel turn”-ът е с около година закъснял, но дори и с него отбора не става по-интересен. Вече гледах развоя на Young Bucks в PWG и Tyler Black в ROH – когато публиката започне да те мрази достатъчно и в един момент просто кажеш “FU”, това не е точно heel turn, а просто леко пренастройване към настроението на публиката. Но за разлика от гореспоменатите, аз мразя Briscoes просто защото са навсякъде, така че и това няма да ги спаси. Отделно, Truth Martini е най-безполезния мениджър на света, а Embassy – най-безполезния стейбъл. Поне има раздвижване при отборните титли, въпреки че KOW явно все още няма да се разделят.

Една от по-коментираните кеч теми през последната седмица... Нови собственици на ROH, нова тв сделка и нови & стари хора на нови позиции в компанията.

Официално медийно изявление:

Sinclair Acquires “Ring of Honor” Wrestling Franchise

Sinclair Broadcast Group, Inc. (Nasdaq: SBGI), the “Company” or “Sinclair,” announced today that it has acquired the “Ring of Honor” wrestling (ROH) franchise. Ring of Honor is the third largest wrestling promotion in the country.

“We are very excited about this acquisition,” commented Steve Marks, COO of Sinclair’s Television Group. “Television and professional wrestling have a long history of successful partnerships and driving viewership. Unfortunately, the broadcast networks have not protected that relationship, allowing professional wrestling to migrate to cable network distribution. We believe that the powerful promotional platform that our TV stations provide, coupled with our 22% coverage of the U.S. TV households, will allow ROH to achieve name brand recognition and grow its share of the wrestling market. When you consider the make-up of our station mix and the number of CW, MYTV and FOX affiliates we operate, this is a perfect fit for our viewer demographics.”

Mr. Marks continued, “We believe that ROH will provide us with multiple revenue opportunities. In addition to the advertising component, there are product sponsorships, Internet pay-per-view, live wrestling tour events, and sales of DVDs and other merchandise. Longer-term, we can envision syndicating ROH wrestling to broadcasters in markets where Sinclair does not have a presence and even internationally. We believe there are opportunities to broadcast ROH wrestling on our secondary tier channels or in a mobile environment. The acquisition also means less syndicated product that we will be required to purchase, and since we own the franchise, we control how many times, which dayparts and on which affiliates we want to air the matches without having the limitation on the number of runs or license fee costs.”

“We have been waiting and working for this opportunity for quite some time,” commented Cary Silkin, owner of ROH. “Of our 9 years in business, there has been no better roster of wrestlers than this one to expose the ROH product to the masses. With Sinclair’s resources and many avenues of distribution, we believe many new fans will be as captivated as those who have followed Ring of Honor over the years.”

This September, Ring of Honor will debut on Sinclair’s network of broadcast television stations, and with it, will become the only wrestling promotion in the United States with a major, multi-market presence on broadcast TV. “But if you don’t live in a market with a Sinclair station, fear not,” says Mr. Silkin. “Through our website, we will be able to make the TV show available to anyone in the world with internet access.”

ROH will be headed by Joe Koff, Chief Operating Officer of Ring of Honor. Mr. Koff, who has been with Sinclair since 2003 and most recently served as Director of Sales, has a long established career in television broadcasting sales and management, as well as managing wrestling content. Mr. Koff was responsible for personally creating, producing, marketing, syndicating, and selling barter inventory in what was to become “The Battle of the Belts I, II, III.” “Battle of the Belts,” which ran three consecutive seasons from 1985-1987, was considered breakthrough programming in its time. Mr. Koff syndicated the first ever, live, prime-time wrestling event and negotiated the international rights for the initial programming.

While the Ring of Honor acquisition includes primarily intellectual property and equipment, several existing ROH employees will be hired including longtime pro wrestling personality and matchmaker, Jim Cornette, who will serve as VP of Creative. Veteran promoter, Gary Juster, will join as VP of Operations, and Cary Silkin will remain in an advisory role. Ring of Honor features such stars as ROH World Champion, Eddie Edwards; World Tag Team Champions, Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin; and top contenders Davey Richards and the Kings of Wrestling. In addition, to Ring of Honor’s “best-in-ring” wrestling talent, ROH fans can expect to see other familiar faces such as longtime wrestling broadcaster Kevin Kelly, already the voice of ROH internet pay-per-views, who will assume the TV play-by-play chair this fall, ring announcer Bobby Cruise and senior referee Todd Sinclair.

A major press conference, open to the wrestling press and mainstream media alike, is being planned for in Baltimore, Maryland on Friday, June 24th. This event will feature a number of the ROH staff and wrestlers. The press event will kick off a weekend which includes ROH’s next internet pay-per-view event, “Best in the World 2011,” live from the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City on Sunday, June 26th at 4PM EDT. In addition to all the top stars on the ROH roster, this event will feature the return of some favorite stars from Ring of Honor’s past, and can be ordered through Gofightlive.tv.

Ето че днес седнах да гледам за първи път ROH и определено не сбърках! Изключително качество наистина! Карда беше интересен включващ познати за мен имена, което ме привлече и към шоуто. Като цяло от мача на Хомисайд и Райно очаквах една идея повече(а ако ТНА успеят да ме обяснят зaщо Anarquia а не Homicide е партньора на Ернандез - ще съм им много благодарен!). Мачът на Даниелс и Дженерико също беше доста приличен. От отборния четворен мач останах изключително очарован, но мачът който определено ми спряха дъха беше Едуардс с/у Ричърдс! За мен този мач беше по-добър от Тейкър-Трипъл Н, а той ми хареса доста! Ако някой може да постне оценката му от Мелтцер ще съм благодарен, но според мен не може да е под **** 1/2 поне!!!

Супер як кард, ама качеството в xwt е пълна скръб. Няма даже 640:480 :( . Ще го чакам в по-добро, че така не ми се мъчи.

Даниелс и Хомисайд в РОХ дават ли си зор да правят добри мачове вече или вече го раздвата звезди и излизат само за шоуто?

Резултати от записите на първите 4 епизода на новото тв шоу на ROH:

Pre-Show Notes:

The promotion is debuting its new ring and ring barriers tonight. The promotion had a new 20x20 ring built specifically for the company going forward....There will be a five or six camera shoot for the TV show....The Chicago Tribune is in the house covering the event....Working backstage as agents are Delirious, Jim Cornette and Jerry Lynn...Daizee Haze is also working backstage...The promotion brought in a lighting truss for the taping and designed a number of new graphics for the series....There is scheduled to be at least one surprise tonight....Former WWE Diva Maria Kanellis is visiting at the show....Jackie Gayda-Haas is also in attendance.


The taping began with Jim Cornette coming to the ring and thanking everyone for reminding him of something that he had forgotten - that Chicago kicks some ass. Cornette said that he wanted to tell them why he picked Chicago for their first TV Taping. He said that Chicago has been a Ring of Honor town for years and has supported the company through thick and thin. He said that he wanted to show everyone what Chicago has known all along - that ROH is the best live wrestling experience in the world.

Cornette said that he wanted to clarify something he said the last time he was here. He said that everyone will be able to watch the TV show online for free on the revamped ROH Wrestling website. The place popped huge for that. That was the first planned surprise.

Cornette asked everyone not to become a mob. He said that they have to help him out - he wanted the entire world to see that not only ROH is about the wrestlers and the matches, but it's about the people. He said that they've mic'd the entire building and cameras will be shooting them and interviewing fans. He said that they love the signs and cheers and boos and asked them to do it like they always did it for ROH. He then pointed out that they are going to be on broadcast TV and asked the fans to keep the chants TV friendly. He got booed for that. He thanked everyone and wished them a good time. Everyone chanted for Cornette.

Kevin Kelly was introduced.

Tony Kozina vs. Grizzy Redwood

This is a dark match so the production crew has test everything. They locked up and Kozina forced Redwood into the corner. He worked over Redwood who leapfrogged him and nailed an enziguiri. Redwood unloaded with chops in the corner. Kozina cut him off and draped Redwood over the ropes, nailing him across the back with a running dropkick.

Kozina continued the beating until being caught with a bulldog for a two count. Redwood nailed him with a clothesline for another two count. Kozina cut him off and worked Redwood over in the ropes until missing a charge, sailing through the ropes to the floor.

Redwood unloaded with punches and backdrops before raining down with punches in the corner. Kozina avoided a charge in the corner but was caught with a rana into the buckles. Redwood nailed a dropkick in the corner for a two count.

Redwood pulled down his straps and went to the top but was caught with a slap to the face as he played to the audience. Kozina nailed a top rope rana but Redwood rolled through and scored the pin.

Your winner, Grizzly Redwood!


Kevin Kelly entered the ring and they counted down for the first TV opening.

Kelly welcomed everyone to the first episode and announced the ROH Tag Team titles would be on the line in the main event, but before that, he wanted to introduce everyone to his broadcast partner. Kelly's mic died, so the crowd began chanting, "This is awkward." That's pretty funny. There was a chant for CM Punk and then a much louder chant for Colt Cabana. They resolved the house mic issues. Kelly said that he hoped everyone enjoyed that as much as he did, because they are going to do it again. So, they shot it again and the crowd was even louder this time.

Kelly welcomed everyone to the first episode and announced the ROH Tag Team titles would be on the line in the main event, but before that, he wanted to introduce everyone to his broadcast partner. Out came former ROH champion Nigel McGuinness. The place went ballistic for Nigel's return. When he hit the ring, a ton of streamers were tossed. The crowd chanted, "Welcome back." Kelly said it was great to see Nigel back in ROH. McGuinness said that being back was "bloody awesome." He said there would be no Nigel without Ring of Honor and when he heard ROH was going on broadcast TV, he knew he had to be a part of it. He said he's not here to be the focus of the show because that should be the wrestlers who kill themselves for the fans every night in Ring of Honor.

Adam Cole & Kyle O'Reilly vs. The Bravado Brothers

Cole and O'Reilly opened up hot with some nice double team action. The Bravados tried to work them over but was tricked into tying each other up into moves. O'Reilly drilled one of the Bravados with forearms in the corner, then Cole lit him up with hard chops. The Bravado cut him off and ran Cole into the Bravados' corner.

The Bravados worked him over. The fans began chanting "Justin Bieber." Cole fired out of a cravate but was nailed and covered for a two count. The Bravados cut off the ring and went back and forth with tags, working over Cole and gaining several near falls. Cole mounted a comeback but O'Reilly was knocked off the apron.

Cole was nearly pinned with a back suplex but O'Reilly broke up the pinfall. Cole finally fired back with forearms and punches, breaking free and dove to make the hot tag. O'Reilly drilled them with kicks and legsweeps. He nailed an enziguiri, then drilled both with a double Dragon Screw Legwhip. He nailed one of the Bravados with a kick for a two count. Cole tagged back in. One of the Bravados kicked off his charge. They nailed a double back suplex on O'Reilly. Cole came back with several superplexes.

O'Reilly nailed several butterfly suplexes and Cole hit a wheelbarrow suplex. The Bravados went to the floor. Cole nailed a great suicide dive on them. O'Reilly followed up with a diving knee off the apron to the floor. The crowd chanted "ROH."

Back in the ring, the teams traded near falls. Cole and O'Reilly finally scored the win.

Your winners, Adam Cole and Kyle O'Reilly!

Cole and O'Reilly are now being billed under the team name "Futureshock." Lots of hot action here.

They are having some technical issues. Nigel McGuinness interviewed a fan asking who would win the main event tonight. They said World's Greatest Tag Team, so they re-shot the interview again using the "Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team" name.

I was just told the following flyers are on all the cars in the parking lot:

ROH Tag Team champions Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin vs. The Kings of Wrestling

Haas and Benjamin have new music. Haas and Claudio started and there was some jockeying for position. They went back and forth. Claudio shoulderblocked him down. He went for a hiptoss but Haas reversed it, nailed a hiptoss and locked in an armbar.

Claudio worked over Haas, who made the tag to Benjamin. Benjamin hit a flying clothesline from the top and worked over Claudio on the mat. He was muscled backwards into the KOW corner.

Hero chopped away at Benjamin. Benjamin fired back with chops of his own. He locked in a cravate but Hero broke free and drilled him with several big shots. Hero tossed Benjamin to the floor. Hero nailed a dropkick through the ropes to the floor. Hero went to grab Benjamin but was pulled to the floor. Hero battled him on the floor and sent Shelton into the barricade.

Hero tossed Benjamin into the ring and covered him for a two count. Benjamin fired back and nearly made the tag to Haas but Claudio drilled him with an European uppercut. Claudio cinched in a side chinlock. Claudio caught him with a powerslam for a two count. Claudio whipped him into the buckles but was kicked off as he charged. The crowd rallied for a hot tag. Hero tried to cut Benjamin off but he ducked down and Hero went sailing over the top. Claudio grabbed Benjamin but was kicked off.

Benjamin mad the tag but the referee was distracted by Hero. As Haas protested, The Kings worked over Benjamin, scoring several two count. The Kings tagged in and out, beating down Benjamin and scoring several two counts. Benjamin nailed an uppercut but Hero nailed him with a forearm. The Kings went for a double suplex but Benjamin nailed a double DDT. He made the hot tag to Haas. Haas cleaned house with clotheslines and a flying headscissors on Claudio.

Haas nailed several German suplexes on Hero for a two count. Haas came off the top with a rana on Claudio. Claudio nailed a flapjack on him and battled with Benjamin. Hero drilled Haas a with a roaring elbow for a near fall. Claudio nailed the big swing on Haas, setting up a Hero dropkick into Haas. Benjamin broke up the near fall at two. There was a small "Haas" chant.

The Kings went for their finisher but Benjamin tackled Claudio to prevent it. Hero drilled Benjamin with a superkick. Haas nailed Claudio with the Stun Gun to set up a double team on the ropes. Haas held up Benjamin for a leaping clothesline on Hero for the win.

Your winners and still ROH Tag Team champions, Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin!

Solid match but It couldn't touch their Atlanta iPPV match for atmosphere or drama.

There have been some delays with the taping, partially because they are editing and doing everything live to tape, including commentary. There seems to have been some sounds issues as well.


The second episode opened with Jim Cornette in the ring, bringing out ROH Tag Team champions Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin. Cornette said that they have proved their excellence with their win last week over the Kings of Wrestling but one team that wants to face them are the Briscoes. The crowd popped for the Briscoes. Shelton Benjamin said that they beat all the top teams in ROH in NYC, including the Briscoes but those mad dogs attacked them and laid them out in NYC. Benjamin said that it makes him mad that they haven't been given a chance to get to the Briscoes. Cornette said they were fined $5,000. Benjamin said, "So what?" Haas said that his own father had never beaten him as bad as the Briscoes did in NYC. Cornette said they won't wrestle the champs unless the titles are on the line. The champs said that they would put them on the line. Cornette said he and ROH aren't going to reward the Briscoes for what they did. The champs said they are going to get their hands on the Briscoes, or else.

Jimmy Jacobs (with Steve Corino) vs. Mike Bennett (with Bob Evans)

Fans threw toilet paper in the ring at Evans. They were all over Bennett with a "You can't wrestle" chant. He controlled Jacobs early but Jacobs cut him off and stomped the hell out of him in the corner. Bennett came back to drill him with a big forearm and smashed Jacobs into the buckles.

Jacobs came back with a spinning head scissors, sending Bennett to the floor. Jacobs went for a pescado but Bennett got out of the way. He went for a dive of his own but stopped and stepped out of the ring, then went to the floor. He worked over Jacobs and tossed him back into the ring. Bennett nailed an over the knee backbreaker for a two count. Bennett beat Jacobs down with a series of rights. Jacobs began psyching himself up.

Bennett caught Jacobs with a knee but Jacobs came back with a flurry of offense, including a hangman's neckbreaker for a two count. Jacobs nailed a tornado DDT for a two count. Bennett cut off Jacobs, who quickly came back with a bodypress off the ropes for another near fall. Jacobs went to the top rope and went for a flying elbow but Bennett pulled his knees up. Bennett nailed a leaping sideslam for the pin.

Your winner, Mike Bennett!

Decent back and forth match.

Bennett shook Jacobs' hand after, mocking Steve Corino in the process. Corino wanted to fight but Bob Evans backed Bennett off and pulled him out of the ring.

Nigel McGuiness interviewed a ringside fan for his prediction on the winner of El Generico vs. Jay Lethal for the ROH TV championship. Nigel then introduced a video package.

ROH TV champion El Generico vs. Jay Lethal

Lots of streamers for both men. They shook hands before the bell. They locked up and did some nice back and forth wrestling to open up. Lethal went for a hiptopss but Generico leapt up and nailed a rana into the corner. Lethal shook his head in surprise. They locked up again and this time Lethal used the ropes and drilll Generico with headscissors. There was a "Let's go Lethal" chant.

They circled each other. Lethal grabbed a waistlock, took down Generico and drilled him with a leaping dropkick. He drilled Generico with a big uppercut in the corner. Generico was whipped into the ropes and nailed with the Lethal Combination. Fans began singing to rally Generico. Lethal covered him for a two count.

Lethal worked over Generico on the mat, then drilled him with a forearm. Lethal locked on a front facelock. Generico fought his way back to his feet. Generico and Lethal went back and forth with shots. Lethal nailed a nice standing dropkick for a two count. Generico and Lethal went back and forth. Generico leapfrogged Lethal. They exchanged hiptosses. Lethal ended up on the outside, where Generico nailed a big dive over the ropes to the floor. They battled on the floor. There was a spot but I couldn't see it due to fans standing. It must have been cool since the chanted, "This is wrestling."

Back in the ring, Lethal evaded Generico several times and nailed several big punches. Lethal went to come off the ropes and began selling his knee. While Lethal was dealing with the knee issue, Generico nailed a kick to the head for a two count.

Generico caught Lethal with a springboard tornado DDT for a two count. They continued to go back and forth with near falls. The bell rang and the time limit expired as Generico went for a suplex.

Time limit draw.

The fans booed and chanted for five more minutes. Jim Cornette came rushing out and told everyone that they had three minutes left in the show and if they want it, they got it. They agreed and began throwing punches back and forth as the crowd went nuts.

Generico caught Lethal in the corner with a big boot for a two count. The crowd chanted "ROH." Generico tried to set up for a superplex but Lethal escaped and reversed it. Lethal came off the top but was nailed by Generico. Lethal avoided the superplex and nailed the flying elbow for a two count.

Lethal charged Generico but was caught with a suplex into the corner. Generico set up for the Coast to Coast but Lethal caught him. Lethal nailed the Lethal Combination and scored the pin.

Your winner and new ROH TV champion. Jay Lethal!

Good match. This was by far the best thing on the show in terms of action and crowd response, particularly the re-start.


Ernie Osyris (with Prince Nana & RA Bannister) vs. Mike Sydal

Osyris nailed Sydal at the bell and worked him over with punches and forearms in the corner. Sydal tossed him into the corner and worked him over with a series of chops.

Your winner, Mike Sydal!


Jim Cornette introduced The Briscoes. Cornette said this was the first time they've seen each other since the State Athletic Commission in New York City fined them $5000. The Briscoes said that money could have bought a lot of beer and bullets, but money is money and you can't take it with you. They said the important thing is that they want the belts that they made famous back and they want to know when Charlie Haas and Shelton Benjamin would stop being cowards. Cornette said that they will not get the title shot because you can't reward what they did last time. So, Cornette will compromise. The Briscoes will fight the All Night Express and the winners will become the top contenders. Jay Briscoe cut an awesome promo on how they beat the Express in different matches and said they are the Briscoes' bitch. Cornette told them to watch their language because they are on broadcast TV. The Briscoes warned everyone to man up because they are coming for their belts.

Andy Ridge vs. Tomasso Ciampa (with Prince Nana)

Ciampa controlled Ridge early with a lot of suplexes. Ridge refused to cowtow to him and they battled outside on the apron, exchanging stiff kicks and chops. Ciampa sent Ridge down hard to the floor. Back in the ring, Ciampa worked over Ridge. Ridge came back with a cutter, leaping over the ropes to nail it.

Ciampa came back with a series of stomps and a running boot to the face. Ciampa set up Ridge and nailed the running powerbomb over his knees. The crowd popped for that.

Your winner, Tomasso Ciampa Ciampa!

Good back and forth match. They let Ridge show some fire but still showcased Ciampa!

Nigel McGuinness tried to get a fan prediction on the next match but instead the fan demanded ROH bring back Kevin Steen. Nigel called him a "Helen Hunt." I don't know why but that cracked me up.

ROH champion Davey Richards vs. Roderick Strong

Your winner, Eddie Edwards!

Another good match.

The House of Truth attempted to attack Edwards after but Nigel McGuinnness hit the ring to a big pop to hold them off. He offered to throw down with them and support Eddie but nothing physical happened. He raised Edwards' arm to close the show.


ROH sent out a number of stars to sign autographs after the show as a thank you to the fans for their support.

The next TV taping will be 10/1 at the Davis Arena in Louisville, Kentucky. I believe there is a November taping there as well.

ROH will return to Chicago Ridge, IL on 11/19.

А да попитам самите шоута от кога ще се врътнат по ТВ?

Тридесетте+ минути изобщо не се усетиха. Страхотен мач между Lethal и Gresham. Отлична техника в началото, в която историята с доминацията на Lethal беше чудесно застъпена, преди Gresham да се прицели върху рамото му. Lethal прекрасно sell-ваше контузията в дългосрочен план, а после демонстрира и уникално желание за победа във втория туш. Единствено очаквах малко повече драма във финалните секунди, но като за TV мач не мога да се оплаквам.


Преди подобни мачове се срещаха на почти всяко шоу на ROH, а днес са си истинско събитие. Може би го има моментът, че в САЩ има друга indy компания, която е много по-пряк път към WWE, но това не трябва да пречи на ROH да търсят по-агресивно таланти, дори и от интернационалната сцена.
