‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Feb 2nd 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly. I’m Nathan Favel and we have Mad Men, which is one of the worst things I’ve ever seen, along with The Wire. Those shows have some of the lousiest acting I’ve ever sat through. Why does modern Hollywood have no sense of humor? Jim Brewer should have been on The Wire…woulda saved that trainwreck. You put your left foot iiiiiiiiiiiinnnnnnnn! Okay, here comes ROH TV.


Match #1: Dalton Castle & Joe Hendry defeated Master & Machine

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

In a backstage segment taped prior to the match, Castle and Hendry talked about getting on track as a team. Hendry said they are two of the best athletes in the sport and should be dominating the tag team division. Hendry fired up Castle and said it starts tonight. After several minutes of back-and-forth action, M&M hit the Skywalker elbow on Hendry for a near fall. Hendry rallied and hit a fallaway slam on Kross and Garrison simultaneously. Kross went for a springboard move off the top rope, but Hendry caught him with a Codebreaker. Castle followed with Denouement on Kross for the win.

My Opinion: 2.9 out of 5 – Castle’s performance was excellent, but the match suffered from the wrong team winning and getting the push throughout the match. Well, the Castle/Hendry pairing may be a waste of time, but the match was decent enough to…exist?

Match #2: Rhett Titus defeated Danhausen

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

The bizarre, entertaining Danhausen nearly pulled off the upset after dumping his jar of teeth into Titus’ mouth and nailing him with a superkick, but Titus kicked out at two. Titus answered with a spectacular dropkick right on the button for the victory.

My Opinion: 2.6 out of 5 – This was a decent match with the right winner. Danhausen is okay, but Titus is the one who could be the champion in the near future, so pushing him first is of higher priority. The match itself is mostly a showcase of how great Titus has become and how weird Danhausen is, but there is some action in here as well. This was not bad, but not amazing either.

Match #3: (Main Event) The Briscoes defeated Maff & Cobb and Lifeblood

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

The sheer power of Cobb and Maff was on display, as were the high-flying and submission skills of Haskins and Williams. In the end, however, it was the 11-time former ROH World Tag Team Champion Briscoes who came out on top after Jay Briscoe hit Jay Driller on Williams.

My Opinion: 3.5 out of 5 – This match turned out well and had plenty of good moves and lots of life too it. This wasn’t any-thing you haven’t seen recently, but it was like a greatest hits album of 2019 ROH, which isn’t the worst thing imaginable. Everybody did what they do best and nothing fell by the wayside.

News Of The Night:

  1. Villain Enterprises (ROH World Champion PCO, Marty Scurll and Brody King) vs. La Facción Ingobernable (RUSH, ROH World Television Champion Dragon Lee and Kenny King w/Amy Rose).

Final Verdict: 3.3/5

This was a fun show, thanks to the main event.
