‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Sept 8th 2019)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and that’s nacho cheese. Did that joke make sense? It’s n-a-c-h-o cheese. Don’t touch it. Get it? No? You…damn it! All right, we have one match, as usual. It’s a good match though.


Match #1: Champions (Matt Taven, Shane Taylor and Jay and Mark Briscoe) versus All-Stars (RUSH, Jeff Cobb, Jay Lethal and Kenny King w/Amy Rose) – Champions versus All-Stars Elimination Match

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

Teammates for a night, rivals Lethal and King began brawling with each other before the start of the match, but eventually order was restored. The Briscoes hit Redneck Boogie on King, but Cobb made the save. A little while later, King rolled up Jay Briscoe for a three count after Brisoe threw water on Rose. Jay Briscoe is eliminated. Former associates King and Taylor went at it, culminating with Taylor hitting Greetings from 216 on him. King is eliminated. Lethal was isolated, but he rallied and hit Lethal Injection on Mark Briscoe. Mark Briscoe is eliminated.

Taven hit a low blow on Lethal after the referee was temporarily incapacitated. He then connected with Just the Tip, and Taylor followed with a running knee strike, but Cobb made the save. Lethal went for Lethal Injection on Taylor, but Taylor caught him and hit Greetings from 216 to pin the two-time former ROH World Champion. It’s a huge feather in the cap of Taylor, who has vowed to break Lethal’s records for most combined days and most title defenses as ROH World Television Champion. Lethal is eliminated. After RUSH got the better of an exchange with Taylor, he went for Bull’s Horns, but Taven blasted him in the back with a chair. Taven was disqualified. Taven is eliminated.

Taven continued to assault RUSH with the chair, but RUSH — who issued a challenge to Taven at Summer Supercard a couple weeks ago — managed to get back on his feet and face Taven. At that point, Taven decided to leave. Shortly thereafter, RUSH hit Bull’s Horns on Taylor to win the match for his team. Taylor is eliminated. RUSH are Cobb are the sole survivors.

My Opinion: 3.8 out of 5 – I don’t remember what review I gave the match when it happened…unless I’ve never seen this one before. Screw it. No matter what, this was really good and you’ll go goo-goo ga-ga for it like The Goo-Goo Dolls at a Lady GaGa concert from her “Naked And Having Sex With The Audience Tour”. There’s plenty of different kinds of wrestling on display here, which sounds like a description of the window of a mall shop. I’m just digging a hole here, aren’t I? Okay, this was a frenetic melee that went all over the place and had many layers to it, which makes it a match of depth and intrigue. Now I sound like I’m describing a James Patterson novel. Before I bore you to death with this TV Guide version of a review, let me just say that you’ll probably like the hell out of this match and that’s that.

Final Verdict: 3.6/5

This was another one match show that had a great match, but that was all, besides the informercial approach promoting Honor Club.
