Ian Riccobani was joined on commentary this week by “The Villian” Marty Scurll.
Death Before Dishonor getting closer
With Death Before Dishonor just two weeks away, there was a lot of build towards the IPPV. Bully Ray opened up the show by telling the fans that as soon as he joined ROH, he wanted to team with The Briscoes, and at Death Before Dishonor they will be on the same page and will beat The Kingdom, before getting their 6 Man Tag Titles back by beating The Young Bucks and Hangman Page.
It was also announced that Jay Lethal and Silas Young will meet in a Last Man Standing match in two weeks. Both men had to be pulled apart by security after Young’ win over Chase Brown. In a feud that has been building for quite a while, I am looking forward to seeing these two finally go at it in Las Vegas. Other matches announced for Death Before Dishonor were Jay White vs. Punishment Martinez in a Street Fight, Kushida defending his TV Title against Kenny King, The Young Bucks and MCMG for the Tag Titles, and Marty Scurll vs. Chucky T.
Ferrara gets the better of Cheeseburger
After a short video showing us the history between the two, Will Ferrara and Cheeseburger met in what was being billed as a grudge match. This was quick to the action as Ferrara attacked his former friend from behind during his entrance. Cheeseburger got in some good offense and showcased his highflying ability against his bigger opponent. Ferrara eventually came out on top by making his former friend pass out with BLL. Rhett Titus came to the ring after the match and helped Ferrara attack the fallen Cheeseburger. It will be interesting to see where you go with Ferrara from here, as he has the look and talent to be a lot higher up the card than he currently is.
Cody shows his mean streak
We had two backstage segments from Cody. As he cut another promo about his match with Minoru Suzuki at Death Before Dishonor, before attacking Dalton Castle after the Bullet Club distracted The Party Peacock. Cody beat up Castle all throughout the backstage area and told him that he is just a novelty act and that Cody is the real champion. This showed a nice mean streak in Cody and it shows us that even though he isn’t signed with the company full-time, the title still means a lot to him. Very good segments.
Action galore in the Main Event
Fast-paced action to close the show as The Young Bucks teamed with Guerillas of Destiny to take on Search and Destroy in an 8 man tag match. As to be expected this was chaotic, frantic and superkick crazy from start to finish and the fans loved every moment of it. Matt Jackson provided one of many highlights with a (too) sweet Swanton from the stage to the floor, taking everybody out in the process. Chris Sabin brought the chaos to an end by pinning Matt Jackson for the win. Crazy spot fest match that Ring of Honor is so great at, and with The Bucks defending their titles against Sabin and Shelley in Las Vegas they will surely be looking at getting revenge for the loss and holding onto their titles.
