‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Jan 26th 2020)

by Phil Wheat

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have two matches. F— off. Well, the main event looks good. Okay, no f—— off just yet.


Match #1: Vincent & Bateman defeated Michael Stevens & Sal Rinauro

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Bateman started the match for his team and immediately seized control. Bateman continued to dominate the match before hitting This Is A Kill tombstone piledriver. He then tagged in Vincent, who made the cover for the win.

My Opinion: 1.7 out of 5 – Hey, Sal Rinauro was here! The match wasn’t very good, but Sal was here and that’s good damn it!

Match #2: (Main Event) Flamita, Bandido & Rey Horus defeated Marty Scurll, Brody King & Flip Gordon – Ring Of Honor Trios Title Match

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Before the match began, Scurll said Gordon was replacing PCO as a co-holder of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title for tonight, and the belts will be on the line. That turned out to be a mistake. After a flurry of fast-paced, back-and-forth action that thrilled the raucous crowd, Scurll set up for the Chicken Wing on Bandido. However, Bandido took advantage of Scurll’s prolonged set-up and rolled him up for the three count to win the title.

My Opinion: 4 out of 5 – This was a fabulous main event that did more for me than most of what I’ve seen this week. I’m glad that the luchadors won the straps, because that way they wear them and have their strap on. There’s plenty of aerial action here to make your brain go…ummmmmmm…picture the plane with Richie Valens and Buddy Holly crashing, but they sing the whole way down. That’s how my mind works. Anyway, this match was as exciting as Black Jeopardy being played with white people.

Final Verdict: 2.9/5

The main event was great, so a 2.9 for an otherwise lousy show is appropriate.
