‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Aug 11th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this review of Ring Of Honor, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a little more wrestling from a league that is going into the real estate business. Honor Homes, taking pride in where your heart is since 2019. There’s not much wrestling here, so get ready for a short review, followed by questions from the audience.


Match #1: (Main Event) LifeBlood (Bandido, Mark Haskins and Tracy Williams) and PJ Black vs. Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, PCO, Brody King and Flip Gordon)

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Gordon, who double-crossed LifeBlood and joined Villain Enterprises at Best in the World, flipped off Bandido and immediately tagged out instead of locking up. Later, Gordon tagged in and got some shots in on Williams before quickly tagging out again. PCO went for a crossbody off the top rope, but Bandido caught the much larger PCO and slammed him. Bandido hit a corkscrew dive off the top rope onto three of his opponents outside the ring. Gordon entered the ring with a chair, but Williams took it from him and chased him to the back.

PCO hit a moonsault off the top rope to the floor onto a pile of competitors. Bandido planted PCO with a Canadian Destroyer on the apron. King hit a sit-out powerbomb on Haskins for a near fall. Bandido hit 21 Plex on King, and Black followed with a 450 Splash on King for the victory.

My Opinion: 3.5 out of 5 – This was a fine match…it was the only match…it was good though…really, really good. Everybody worked hard to make this match a success and they were successful, like Luxotica at gaining a monopoly on the glasses market. New Girl is a good show…I think. Somebody who I know is good is PCO, who has a death wish of some kind. King looks like Justin Timberlake after a bee sting (a big bee) and wrestles like a real pro. Bandido is quickly becoming a true star in every way you can think of, especially thanks to performances like the one he gave here. I could keep going on like this, but everybody did what they were supposed to do, so how can I have any real gripes here? Overall, this was an excellent match to end the show.

Final Verdict: 3/5

One match and a bunch of good promos about other wrestlers is not enough for a weekly wrestling show. Rhett Titus cut a fine promo on his history, but it might lead to nothing outside of a match with Kenny King. They did mention that Will Ferrara is no longer a part of ROH, but who knows if that’s actually news or just something Titus was booked to say to give him something to say. Why can’t ROH just go back to having an hour of matches? Message board people say that matches don’t equal ratings, but those are the same people that think we will pay to see John Cena talk. Cena talking ain’t gonna pay anybody’s bills. Stupid marks. Okay, this show was good, but depressed the hell out of me because it didn’t have a lot of wrestling.
