‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (March 31st 2019)

by Nathan Favel


Welcome to this week’s review of Ring Of Honor, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have a few good matches to talk about, so let’s do so.

Match #1: RUSH defeated Mark Haskins

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

RUSH wasted no time taking the fight outside the ring and tossing LifeBlood’s Haskins into the guardrail. Haskins came back with a suicide dive and double stomp off the top rope. RUSH answered with a snap German suplex and cutter. Haskins hit Made in England for a near fall. Both men were down after connecting on simultaneous kicks to the head. Shortly thereafter, RUSH hit an overhead suplex into the corner. He followed with Bull Horns for the victory to remain undefeated in ROH.

My Take: 3 out of 5 – This was some excellent stuff, but RUSH was the big star here, as he just oozed…wrestling? Screw it. It was good. What do you people want from me? A good review? Well, that’s what you get for wishing for reasonable stuff. I will say, though, that this is a fine opener that stands out for the right reasons.

Match #2: (Main Event) Villain Enterprises (“The Villain” Marty Scurll and ROH World Tag Team Champions PCO and Brody King) defeated ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions The Kingdom (Matt Taven, TK O’Ryan and Vinny Marseglia) to win the titles

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

As soon as the bell sounded all six competitors started brawling both in and out of the ring. The Kingdom seized the advantage by isolating Scurll. Scurll rallied, and in a unique display of teamwork, he back-body-dropped PCO over the top rope onto all three Kingdom members. Scurll and King then hit a 619/senton combination on O’Ryan for a near fall. The Kingdom recovered and hit Rock Star Supernova on King, but King wasn’t the legal man so there was no pin attempt. Taven did a huge dive over the top onto PCO, but PCO came right back with a cannonball over the top rope onto Taven. Marseglia powerbombed PCO on the ramp. Scurll got O’Ryan in the Chicken Wing, and O’Ryan tapped.

My Take: 3.5 out of 5 – This was a strong main event that held itself together the whole way through. It was cool seeing VE become champions in two tag divisions. Ain’t I just talkin’ your ear off all the way down the trail? If you like action that breaks your neck just to look at it, then this is your match. Two Thumbs Up. Overall, go watch this barn-burner for yourself and I bet you’ll enjoy it.

News Of The Night:

  1. The ROH World Title Match will be a Triple Threat Ladder Match.
  2. Jeff Cobb will fight Will Ospreay at the G1 Supercard.

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

This was a fine show that did more to build toward Wrestlemania weekend than the WWE did.
