Ring Of Honor TV Review (5/28/16)

By Nathan Neumann

Hello and welcome to my first ROH TV review in quite some time as ROH was airing older content forever.  However now we are back into the swing of things and things can resume per the usual for me over at http://www.EyesOnTheRing.com and http://www.4CROnline.com I am of course Nathan (in case you’ve forgotten my name).  So without any hesitation lets get down to business.





Match 1
Lio Rush vs. ACH

Thoughts: The match begins and the two feel each other out early on until ACH hits a German suplex for a near fall.  This short match would come to an end when ACH hits Lio Rush with a super kick and follow it up with a midnight star (450 Splash) to pick up the win in quick fashion.

Match Result: ACH defeats Lio Rush via pinfall after the Midnight Star.

Match Rating: N/A: Hopefully these two will get a proper match down the line

From there Silas Young who was on commentary earlier runs down to the ring and begins beating the crap out of ACH.  Silas hits ACH with Misery.

From there we flashback to when the Addiction recaptured the ROH World Tag Team Titles from War Machine.

This brings out Daniels and Kazarian who say they are better than any team that is currently in ROH.  Daniels claims that he and Kazarian have never been beaten which is totally untrue but I guess we are going with it.

This brings out Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley who want a crack at The Addiction, however they are not alone, as Roppongi Vice also want an opportunity.

From there we find out that an impromptu match will happen next.

Match 2
Roppongi Vice vs. Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Addiction

Thoughts: The match begins and the teams feel each other out for a bit before Sabin and Shelley hit Daniels with a super kick lariat combination.  Kazarian hits a neck breaker on Shelley and in comes Daniels to stomp away on the fallen Shelley.  Daniels hits an STO to get a near fall.  Barretta recovers and drops Kazarian on his head with a German Suplex.  Daniels comes back by hitting the Best Moonsault Ever.  The match comes to an end when the Motor City Machine Guns win the match with a splash neck breaker combination to earn themselves a future ROH World Tag Team Title Opportunity.

Match Result: Motor City Machine Guns defeat Roppongi Vice and The Addiction via pinfall after a neck breaker top rope splash combination.

Match Rating: **1/2

From there we go to a pre taped promo from Roderick Strong who is cutting an angry promo about Jay Briscoe and their upcoming match at Best In The World.

From there we cut to Adam Cole who says that this is The Bullet Club’s world and that we are all lucky to live in it.

We then find out that a Fight Without Honor will take place at Best In The World as BJ Whitmer will take on Steve Corino.

From there we go to the main event of the evening.

Match 3
Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks vs. Hiroshi Tanahashi, Michael Elgin and Yoshi Tatsu

Thoughts: Fun match that was super fast paced and at some points hard to follow and keep up with.  The Elite gets thrown out of the ring early and Elgin dives over the top rope onto everyone on the outside.  Back in the ring, Elgin hits a double suplex on both of the Bucks.  Tanahashi gets into the ring and eats a super kick before falling over like he just got shot in the face.  The Bucks and Omega hit stereo triple suicide dives to the outside on all of their opponents.  Back in the ring and Tanahashi gives everyone on the opposing team a back rake, Elgin hits a dead lift German Suplex on Matt Jackson and follows it up with another one this time with both of the Bucks.  Elgin hits a Falcon Arrow and gets a near fall before it’s broken up by Omega with a flying attack.  Matt Jackson springs off of the rope for a 450 before getting caught in midair by Elgin in a powerbomb position before being thrown to the outside of the ring.  Back in the ring Omega and The Bucks hit Tatsu with a triple super kick for a near fall.  The match comes to an end when Kenny Omega hits Yoshi Tatsu with a One Winged Angel to pick up the pinfall victory.

Match Result: Kenny Omega and The Young Bucks defeat Hiroshi Tanahashi, Michael Elgin and Yoshi Tatsu via pinfall after Kenny Omega hits Yoshi Tatsu with the One Winged Angel.

Match Rating: ***

Fun main event that capped off the first new show in months, lets hope they can keep this going.

That however will do it for me and this review of ROH TV and thankfully I still remember how to write reviews which is a good thing.  I wouldn’t say this episode is must watch material or anything but it’s got some good stuff on it if you just want to kill an hour with some good wrestling.
