‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Sept 1st 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 match…from a month ago…at Summer Supercard. I feel like David Spade. Is that a good thing? Let’s get this over with. Wait, the match is good. Okay, keep your chin up for the good match and I will too.


Match #1: (Main Event) Bandido & Mark Haskins defeated Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

In keeping with his recent change in attitude, Gresham displayed a cocky demeanor. He also again showed his willingness to bend the rules. As Bandido hit the ropes, Gresham pulled down the middle rope, sending Bandido crashing to the floor. Lethal wasn’t happy with Gresham, who ignored Lethal and tagged himself in. Gresham grabbed a chair and prepared to use it on Bandido outside the ring. Lethal stopped him, and Gresham responded by shoving his partner to the mat. Later, Lethal had the figure-four leglock on Haskins, but Haskins refused to submit. Gresham had been holding back Bandido to prevent him from making the save, but Bandido eventually broke free and powerbombed Gresham onto Lethal to break the hold. Bandido hit a pop-up cutter. Bandido countered Lethal Injection and hit the GTS followed by 21 Plex. Haskins applied the Sharpshooter to Lethal, and the two-time ROH World Champion tapped out.

My Opinion: 3.9 out of 5 – I don’t remember my original rating for this, but it was still a strong match the second time around. There’s plenty of action here, which makes sense, given this is a Pay Per View match. These guys left no stone un-turned when it came to thrilling wrestling. This was some great stuff.

News Of The Night:

  1. Matt Taven will wrestle RUSH for the Ring Of Honor World Title in the near future.

Final Verdict: 3.3/5

The match was great, but this is a commercial for some-thing that has already happened. Imagine if I aired a vintage commercial of Last Tango In Paris and expected it to draw people in to see it in 1973. Would I make any money off of an advertisement for an old movie that is not in theaters any more? Ring Of Honor needs to focus more on new matches, not ones that have been seen and reviewed. I’m not buying Honor Club, so stop trying to tempt me into doing so.
