Ring of Honor
Date: July 22, 2015
Location: Terminal 5, New York City, New York
Commentators: King Corino, Kevin Kelly
This is the 200th episode under the Sinclair Broadcasting banner as well as the go home show before this Friday’s Death Before Dishonor pay per view. It should be interesting to see if they can find a balance between the pay per view stuff and the historical content. Let’s get to it.
After a quick intro from the announcers, we go to a clip from April 25, 2015 when the Addiction took the Tag Team Titles from ReDragon. We see most of the finish after ReDragon’s hot tag, setting up a series of double team moves for near falls. ReDragon takes over but a masked man known as the KRD runs in and superkicks O’Reilly by mistake, setting up Celebrity Rehab to give the Addiction the titles.
The masked man is revealed to be Chris Sabin and the Addiction joins him to beat down the former champions. O’Reilly is busted open but the blood is censored.
Various wrestlers are excited about making it to 200 episodes.
Highlights from Steel Cage Warfare from July 27, 2013 where SCUM was destroyed. King Corino laughs off being evil.
Package on the Top Prospect Tournament, capped off by Donovan Dijak beating Will Ferrara in the finals. They show how the match ends but then go back to show the last few minutes. The ending was a back and forth slugout with Dijak hitting Feast Your Eyes (a Burning Hammer into a GTS) for the win and the tournament.
Clip of the end of Tag Wars on December 27, 2014 with ACH/Matt Sydal vs. the Briscoes vs. Addiction vs. ReDragon. Chasing the Dragon was enough to pin ACH/Sydal and retain the Tag Team Titles.
Clip of Hanson vs. AJ Styles from November 22, 2014. Hanson hits a nice powerbomb for two but takes too much time going up, allowing Styles to hit the Clash for the pin.
One last clip of Lance Storm vs. Mike Bennett from August 4, 2012. Bennett won with a Photo Finish (TKO) onto a chair.
House of Truth vs. Briscoe Brothers/ODB/Roderick Strong
That would be Donovan Dijak/Jay Diesel/Jay Lethal/Truth Martini. ODB and Truth actually start with Martino busting out a Spinarooni. It’s off to Lethal vs. Strong, so Lethal tags out to Dijak for our first actual violence. Roderick takes over and drags Donovan to the corner for the tag to the Briscoes for some double teaming. Mark hits a middle rope splash and we take a break, coming back to Donovan hitting a release suplex slam on Mark to take over.
Off to Lethal for some stomping in the corner as the heels start rotating. Everyone but Truth gets in some shots on Mark until he comes back with a middle rope forearm to the face. The hot tag brings in his brother for left hands and a neckbreaker to Dijak. The Jay’s (as in not Diesel) slug it out with Lethal taking over and slapping on a cobra clutch. We take a break and come back with Roderick getting the hot tag to hammer away on the World Champion.
The Sick Kick gets two and everything breaks down with Lethal superkicking Roderick. ODB tags herself in and chokes the champ, allowing for a tag off to Martini. The House of Truth surrounds ODB but she takes a shot from the flask and slugs all of them until the heroes come back in. Everyone goes to the floor, leaving ODB to spit booze in Truth’s eyes, setting up a rollup pin at 16:35.
Result: Briscoes/Roderick Strong/ODB b. House of Truth – Rollup to Martini (16:35)
