ROH TV Review - Episode 331
I haven't watched ROH in FOREVER. Let's see what's good.
Colt Cabana is on commentary so that's a plus.
1) Motor City Machine Guns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) (c) vs. The Dawgs (Rhett Titus & Will Ferrara) - ROH World Tag Team Title Match
Rhett Titus comes out with some underhanded jokes. This is my first time seeing him teamed up with Ferrara and lord I don't know what to expect. MCMG comes out and I had no clue they were tag champs, but it is pretty sick. I think they will do wonders for any young talent they work with. This was just a simple five minute opener defense. I really dig matches like this. It really solidifies a champion as a champion. Straight to the point.
Match rating - **
-Daniels, Kazarian, & Scorpio Sky have started a SoCal faction and I low-key am fan girling bc of my So Cal Wrestling/PWG infatuation. They bribe Shane Taylor with a check into keeping the Bullet Club away from them later tonight.
2) Josh Woods vs. Jonathan Gresham
Never seen Woods, but god I've missed Gresham and somehow he seems to have gotten even better than he was a few years ago. This was a really fun, well put together television match. They focused it around the "fluke" victory Woods claims that Gresham got on him a few weeks back and the targeting of Woods leg by Gresham. Both of these played into the finish and it ruled. Had this gone a little longer, it was heading toward great territory.
Match rating - **3/4
-Cody Rhodes cuts his first promo since losing the ROH Title to Dalton Castle and it's crazy seeing him work as a babyface. Matt Taven interrupts and DUDE. He's gotten so much better. He lays a verbal beating on Cody and makes me want to see ROH put the strap on him. Good stuff.
3) The Young Bucks vs. Dragon Lee & Titan vs. Best Friends (Chuck Taylor & Trent?)
So, some things have changed and some have stayed the same in ROH's tag division in the past year. What's changed is that I guess Delirious got over his disdain for Chuckie T and now we GET TO SEE BEST FRIENDS IN RING OF HONOR. What hasn't changed is the YB's are still the king of sprints. This was so much damn fun. Literally one of the most entertaining matches so far this year. It may seem like I'm over ranking this a bit considering it was just a spot fest, but they killed this on every level. Crowd was hot, action was on point. No complaints. Watch this jawn. Bucks win with the pin on Titan.
Match rating - ****
-Daniels, Kazarian, and Scorpio Sky attack the Young Bucks after the match. Adam Page runs them off. OH MY.
I have to recommend Lethal vs Ospreay from Episode 330, a week prior to this, great ***3/4 match.
