‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Oct 6th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have…no actual matches. What we have are extended clips from the lucha libre stars of CMLL, which means that the ROH TV editors didn’t listen to a word I said last week. Well, they probably don’t read these reviews either, so they can kiss my ass. Okay, here goes nothing. Hey, that’s actually true this time.

Here are the four matches they offered clips of:

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

RUSH vs. Barbaro Cavernario

These two are no strangers to one another, having teamed together and fought on opposite sides numerous times in CMLL. This was their first meeting in an ROH ring and just their second-ever singles match against one another. Cavernario, one of the top stars in CMLL, took the fight to RUSH, nailing him with a series of dives to the floor and ramming him into the barricade. RUSH was bleeding from his right shoulder. RUSH rallied and went on to hit Bull’s Horns to remain unbeaten in ROH.

Jay Lethal, Jeff Cobb and Jonathan Gresham vs. Team CMLL (Caristico, Triton and Stuka Jr.)

Cobb’s strength and agility once again were on display. At one point, he held Stuka Jr. in a vertical suplex position for what seemed like an eternity before finally completing the move. Cobb also scooped up Caristico and Triton and hit a fallaway slam on both of them. He followed with a standing moonsault on Stuka Jr. for a near fall. Later, the three members of Team CMLL hit simultaneous suicide dives. Stuka Jr. hit a torpedo splash on Lethal, but Gresham made the save. Lethal and Gresham hit the Cornette Cutter on Triton, and Gresham pinned him.

Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, PCO, Brody King and Flip Gordon) vs. Team CMLL (Barbaro Cavernario, Hechicero, Okumura and Rey Bucanero)

This was an entertaining free-for-all that took place inside and outside the ring. King once again displayed his freakish agility for a man his size during the match, as the raucous crowd gave him a standing ovation. PCO hip-tossed Hechicero onto a pile of competitors on the floor and then hit a moonsault off the top rope onto them. Scurll had Okumura stretched out over his legs, and King hit a senton onto the defenseless Okumura for the win.

Volador Jr., Caristico and Stuka Jr. vs. Hechicero, Rey Bucanero and Okumura

This entertaining, fast-paced trios match between six CMLL stars ended with Volador Jr. hitting a super hurricanrana on Hechicero for the victory.

My Opinion: Nothing Out Of Nothing – There were no complete matches this hour, so there’s no review to give. I will say that it was great having a show-case for the CMLL guys, but sticking the luchadors with a clip show felt more desperate than Bambi in a biker bar. Hey, when the show sucks, the jokes suck.

News Of The Night:

  1. Dalton Castle and Marty Scurll talked about being in the #1 Contender Tournament for the ROH World Title.

Final Verdict: 2.9/5

There was a lot of action here, but no complete matches. You know, the NWA has a one-hour YouTube show on Tuesday’s (which will be reviewed this week) that had more wrestling on it then this episode. Hell, Steel Magnolias almost had more wrestling matches than this show.
