‘Ring of Honor’ Wrestling Review (Nov 14th 2020)

by Nathan Favel

Welcome to Thunderdome, bitch! I’m kidding! Welcome to this week’s Ring Of Honor review, right here on Nerdly…bitch. I’m Nathan Favel and I’m balder than the cast of THX-1138, both above and…below…sucka. We’ve got rednecks fighting the military and whatever crap in the main event. Are you ready? Suck it!

Match #1: Jay and Mark Briscoe def. Soldiers of Savagery (Moses and Kaun)

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

EC3 sat in on commentary. The Briscoes isolated Moses early. After Kaun was tagged in, he unloaded on Jay Briscoe. SOS double-teamed Jay. Eventually, Mark Briscoe tagged in and hit a flurry of offense. The Briscoes hit a double superplex off the top rope on Kaun. Mark made a cover, but Moses broke it up. All four men began slugging it out. After Jay and Kaun spilled to the floor, Moses hit a headbutt off the middle rope on Mark and followed with a cannonball off the apron on Jay. Kaun landed a frog splash on Mark for a near fall. Later, Mark set up a chair in the ring and used it as a springboard to do a flip dive over the top rope onto Kaun. Jay hit a Death Valley Driver on Moses, and Mark followed with Froggy Bow for the win at 9:41.

My Opinion: 3.4 out of 5 – Well, Spencer Tracy and Katharine Hepburn kicked the Nikes out of The Gunga Din Twins like the Reebok classics that they are. The Briscoes are the Reeboks here, not the other…anyway. You aren’t getting any kind of mat mastery here, but Dem Boys aren’t normally known for doing that in tag, so what did you expect? That being said, you get some brisk tag action, which is how The Briscoes work, so there you go Idaho. This isn’t a match that will be remembered for any thing besides having some nice moves, like Petey Ndguski when he went to prom at Hershey High. Nothing major happened here, but it was decent and simple, which is how I would describe my love of char-broiled peanut butter…mmmmmmmmm.

Match #2: (Main Event) Shane Taylor def. Kenny King

The following is courtesy of rohwrestling.com:

King extended his hand for the Code of Honor, but Taylor spit on it. King responded with a punch to the face. King used his quickness to frustrate Taylor in the early going. King wanted to fist bump Taylor, but Taylor rocked him with a forearm to the face. Taylor followed with a barrage of heavy blows to King’s chin. King fired up, but Taylor shut him down with a shoulder block. Taylor hit a leg drop for a near fall and a draping cutter for another near fall. King caught Taylor with a spinning heel kick and followed with a spinning slam for a two count. Taylor hit a running knee to the face and then a package piledriver for a near fall. King answered with an overhead suplex for a two count. Taylor planted King with Welcome to the Land for the win at 10:14. Taylor celebrated his victory and then he and King embraced after the match.

My Opinion: 3.5 out of 5 – This was pretty good. I wouldn’t say we’ve got the makings of a classic feud on hand here, but we do have a pairing with some nice chemistry and that’s a spicy meat-a-ball! Taylor smashed King’s face in with his elephant ass and I liked it. I know that trampolines are a great place to make whoopee, but did you know that this match had King’s best performance in quite some time? The match may have been pretty ordinary overall, but King shined here in a way that is very promising for his future. If King can keep wrestling like this all the time, then he just might get that chance to be a World Champion. Bon Jovi, everybody!

News Of The Night:

  1. Next week’s matches are: Matt Taven vs. Bateman, Jay Briscoe vs. EC3; and Jay Lethal vs. LSG – Pure Rules Match

Final Verdict: 3.5/5

I could kiss you, Eduardo…kiss you! MMMMMWA! Serious wrestling and decent programming makes for a beautiful thing! MMMMWWAAA!
