Ring of Honor
Date: November 11, 2015

Commentators: Nigel McGuinness, Kevin Kelly
We’re on a new taping cycle now as we’ve hit Glory By Honor. These should be some better TV shows as most tapings with names tend to be. The big story continues to be the build towards Lethal’s next title defenses against Roderick Strong and AJ Styles, but we also have Adam Cole vs. Kyle O’Reilly likely about to be announced for Final Battle. Let’s get to it.
Cedric Alexander vs. ACH
Cedric has Veda Scott in his corner and ACH is coming up on the final match in his best of five series against Matt Sydal. Cedric isn’t interested in a handshake here so we have a feeling out process to start. A few kicks send Cedric to the ropes for a quick meeting with Veda and they trade flips over each other. ACH misses an enziguri and Cedric slams him head first into the mat.
Cedric gets kicked out to the floor but Veda blocks a dive, allowing Cedric to hit a running STO onto the apron as we take a break. Back with Alexander hitting some rolling suplexes and smiling a lot. It’s a bit too much smiling though as ACH grabs a downward spiral into the top turnbuckle. The same missed enziguri works a bit better this time as ACH bounces back with a kick to the jaw.
Cedric rolls to the floor but another Veda distraction blocks the dive. You know they’re getting in their dives on this show though as ACH hits that Jordan dive (Kelly: “Like a young Nigel McGuinness!”) of his. Back in and a German suplex gets two on Cedric and another kick to the head puts Alexander down again. The Dub Dub Stomp misses and Cedric nails a running dropkick in the corner. He slips off the springboard though and ACH hits a superkick followed by a brainbuster. The Midnight Star puts Cedric away at 11:25.
Result: ACH b. Cedric Alexander – Midnight Star (11:25)
Post match ACH says he’s going to beat Sydal.
After a break, Veda blames Nigel for the slip because of so much baby oil on the ropes.
Will Ferrara vs. Caprice Coleman
Before the match Caprice asks the fans to cheer for Ferrara but says he hasn’t taught him everything yet. They trade some armdrags with Ferrara getting control with some armbars. Caprice slams him back down but Will snaps the arm to stop him again. An STO puts Ferrara into the turnbuckle for two and some knees to the chest keep him in trouble.
Ferrara comes back with a tornado DDT for two as Prince Nana comes out to watch. Back up and Will misses a charge into the post but Caprice doesn’t mind as he sends Ferrara’s shoulder into the steel again. A one arm camel clutch (the Judgment Seat) gives Caprice the win at 6:01.
Result: Caprice Coleman b. Will Ferrara – Judgment Seat (6:01)
Nana gives Ferrara an envelope of his own post match.
It’s Story Time with Adam Cole where he gets to talk about whatever he wants. In this case it’s his issues with Kyle O’Reilly, even though everyone knows that Cole is the better man. After a clip of Cole pinning Kyle last week, we see him making Kyle tap back in 2012 in New York. Adam says that’s all the proof you need, but he’s not done until Kyle is out of ROH.
Prince Nana says the envelopes contain the secrets to life. He is far from done in Ring of Honor.
We look back at the All Night Express (Kenny King and Rhett Titus) beating the Briscoe Brothers at All-Star Extravaganza.
All Night Express vs. Briscoe Brothers
Kenny and Mark get things going with Mark grabbing a headlock but taking a right hand to the jaw. It’s quickly off to Titus who walks into a belly to belly, allowing Jay to come in but he’s quickly taken down with a double shot to the face. Titus’ splash gets two and we’re already in the chinlock.
That goes nowhere so Jay comes back with a boot to the face, allowing for the hot tag to Mark. Chops and a big flip dive have the Express in trouble and Titus gets stomped down in the corner. A quick Snake Eyes drops Mark but Jay is smart enough to break up the tag before Titus can go anywhere. Back from a quick break with Titus rolling over for the tag to speed things up.
Kenny cleans house and drops Jay off the apron to keep Mark in trouble. King takes too much time posing though and walks into a forearm from Jay. The Doomsday Device to Titus is broken up but so is the One Night Stand. Jay’s suicide dive sends Titus into the barricade and Mark adds a Blockbuster off the apron to King. The Jay Driller and Froggy Bow put Titus away at 11:32.
Result: Briscoe Brothers b. All Night Express – Froggy Bow to Titus (11:32)
They shake hands to end the show.
