‘Ring of Honor’ Review (Nov 17th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have one damn match, but it is a good one. Carly Simon likes to beat “Boys In The Trees”.  There is a time and a place to eat a man’s face, but now is not that time. We’ve got wrestling to get to, so no eating a man’s face…with A1 dribbled on the jaw meat as it grilled for twenty minutes with red onions and filets of juicy pineapple sauntering above the smooth, curled skin clinging to the moist, tender strip of upper lip. MMMMMM…cannibalism. AUGYGCHLKHLGGKC! This TalkTech system sure does make it easier to say bizarre $#!@.


Match #1: (Main Event) Shane Taylor beat Joe Hendry – Ring Of Honor World Television Title Match

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

After several minutes of hard-hitting action inside and outside the ring, Hendry hit a Codebreaker for a near fall. Taylor answered with a package piledriver for a near fall and a splash off the middle rope for another near fall. The resilient Hendry rallied and hit an impressive fallaway slam for a near fall. The challenger then applied the Hendry Lock, but Taylor was able to escape. Taylor regained the advantage with a headbutt, and then finally put Hendry down for a three count after Greetings from 216.

My Opinion: 3.7 out of 5 – I don’t remember the score from the first time, but this was a great match this time around. It’s a shame that Shane is getting released soon, because he’s become very consistent in the ring. Joe fought like a mix between Scott Hall and Drew Gulak, which is a statement I never thought I would ever make, but here we are. There was all sorts of fine technical work here, but they never forgot to just slam each other halfway to Hell once in a while to make sure every-one was still paying attention. I’d say this is the start of a beautiful friendship, but Shane is getting fired in January, so never mind.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

The one match was really good and the highlights they showed were all from good matches, so that’s cool.
