ROH TV Review - April 12th, 2014
This week, ROH began showing us matches from their huge Supercard of Honor shows that took place during WrestleMania weekend.
1) Silas Young vs. RD Evans (w/ Veda Scott)
Fun opening style match. Evans isn't a serious competitor while Young is the complete opposite so this was a weird mesh of characters, but Young still impressed. The highlight for me was Silas hitting an electric chair on the ring apron! I've never seen anyone do that before. I hope ROH starts pushing Young because he's a physical wrestler with alot of talent and good gimmick as "The Last Real Man in Wrestling". Evans gets the win after screw job finish.
Match rating - 6/10
2) Tommasso Ciampa vs. Jay Lethal - 2/3 Falls Match for the ROH TV Championship
After these two tore the house down on two seperate occassions already this year, I was looking forward to this match when I heard about it. Unfortunately, it turned out to be the worst match they've had together. Their three way with Taven was awesome along with their singles bout from a few weeks ago, but it felt like something was missing from this bout. They kept it at a slower pace for the most part which was different. They started off slow and never really picked up til right at the end. Right when it started to get good - it was over. It was still a good match, but nowhere near as awesome as their previous encounters. Lethal turns heel and sides with Truth Martini and wins the TV Title!
Match rating - 7/10
