ROH TV Taping report
September 19, 2015
San Antonio, Tex.
Report by Kevin Holloran, PWTorch correspondent
Three of the Four Horsewomen were in attendance tonight - Jessamyn Duke, Shayna Baszler, and Marina Shafir.
- Dark Match: Pretty Boy Killers beat the Washington Bullets. A very entertaining match with PBK winning after about eight minutes.
- Nigel McGuinness came out to greet the crowd, recap last night's "All-Star Extravaganza" PPV, and preview the card for tonight.
Episode #1 Taping
(1) Matt Sydal beat A.C.H. to even their Best-of-Five Series at 2-2. Very good, fast-paced match.
Post-match, former ROH tag champions The Addiction (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian) attacked both men and cut a promo about wanting their titles back and talking down to the San Antonio crowd. They repeated they didn't get pinned for the titles. Out came All Night Express. Kenny King said they never lost their titles, either. He said the road to the Tag Titles goes through them.
- Silas Young (with The Boys) came out with Beer City Bruiser. Young said the first order of business is to learn how to take a whoopin'. Bruiser attacked both men...
(2) Beer City Bruiser squashed The Boys (w/Silas Young).
(3) ROH TV champion Jay Lethal beat Takaaki Watanabe to retain the ROH TV Title. Cheap shot off the Code of Honor by Lethal for the early advantage. Lethal stayed on top for a good while until Watanabe made his comeback blocking an attempt at the Lethal Injection for two. Lethal with a low blow while Todd Sinclair was distracted and then the champ hit Lethal Injection to retain. A loud "A.J. Styles" chant broke out as Lethal celebrated and left.
Episode #2 Taping
(1) All Night Express (Kenny King & Rhett Titus) beat The Addiction (Christopher Daniels & Kazarian w/Chris Sabin). Adherence to the Code of Honor and the match was underway. Sabin tried grabbing King's leg early on and got kicked out, making it two-on-two. Addiction work over Titus until he gets the hot tag to King, who hitsa few big moves to both members of The Addiction. A KRD masked man then came out, which distracted Daniels as he called for the BME. ANX picked up the win.
- The Kingdom out to explain what happened at All-Star Extravaganza. Each member said their piece. Adam Cole said he turned on Kyle O'Reilly because he doesn't deserve to be anywhere near the ROH Title. reDRagon made their way out, but officials got between them before anything happened. Bobby Fish said it's just a matter of time before they get the titles before calling The Kingdom a "Piece of s---." Out came Michael Elgin to even the teams at three a-piece and he took out The Kingdom single-handedly. Then, he challenged The Kingdom to a three-on-three match. The Kingdom left.
(2) Jay Briscoe beat Adam Page (w/B.J. Whitmer) in a No Holds Barred match. Jay went for a suicide dive early on, but he ate a chair shot from Page on the outside, prompting Page to set up a table. Whitmer tried to give Adam his crutch, but Mark Briscoe ran out, took it, and ran to the back. The match resumed back-and-forth in the ring. Page charged Briscoe and ended up hitting the post and falling onto the table followed by a double stomp through the table by Briscoe. Back in the ring, Jay hit a neckbreaker with Page's head in a chair. Very interesting spot. Jay teased a Jaydriller through the timekeeper's table, but Page countered into a back drop on the apron. Jay finally hit a Jaydriller from the apron to the floor! A "You just killed him" chant broke out as he filed him back into the ring and got a two count! He hit another Jaydriller in the middle of the ring for the three.
After the finish, a "that was awesome" chant broke out. Whitmer then got into the ring and hit with his crutch a few times until Steve Corino got in and hit him with a loaded punch! What a great match. Must-see.
Episode #3 Taping
(1) Moose (w/Stokely Hathaway) beat Donovan Dijak (w/Truth Martini). Sloppy match that Moose won with a spear.
(2) Dalton Castle beat Cedric Alexander (w/Veda Scott). Very weird seeing Castle come out without The Boys and in a t-shirt. Dalton really played up the confused part well without his boys. He's much more aggressive now. Early on, it worked, but as the match went on, it hurt him, causing him to miss a boot in the corner. Veda held his leg while Cedric hit a running kick to Castle. But, Castle eventually fired back and picked up the win over Cedric.
Post-match, Veda got on the mic and asked if we enjoyed Cedric losing, which led to a loud "Yes!" chant. Veda blamed Nigel McGuinness for Cedric being hurt for sanctioning the No DQ Match against Moose at last night's PPV. She threatened a lawsuit for an unsafe working environment and said they won't be back under these conditions.
- ROH World & TV champion Jay Lethal (with Truth Martini) came out for a promo. Truth talked about Lethal's greatness until Roderick Strong interrupted them. Roddy congratulated Truth on making Lethal the champ that he is. Strong asked for another match, Lethal said no, and Nigel agreed. But, he said there is no #1 contender to the TV Title. He named Strong the #1 contender for that title, much to Lethal and Truth's dismay.
Main Event Time - The Kingdom (Adam Cole, Michael Bennett, and Matt Taven with Maria) vs. Michael Elgin and ReDRagon.
(3) Michael Elgin & ReDragon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O'Reilly) beat The Kingdom (Adam Cole & ROH tag champions Mike Bennett & Matt Taven w/Maria Kanellis) in a six-man tag match. Bobby Fish took a beating once the bell rang as The Kingdom cut off the ring. Michael Elgin finally got the tag and did some impressive power spots. Bucklebomb followed by Chasing the Dragon on Bennett for the win.
- Post-match, The Kingdom jumped O'Reilly and left him in the corner. As they left, O'Reilly got on the mic and called Cole a snake and son of a b----. Kyle asked Nigel for a match with Cole, but Nigel said he can't do that. He said he can add him to the match that Cole has next week against A.J. Styles. So, next week, it will be a three-way match of A.J. Styles vs. Adam Cole vs. Kyle O'Reilly.
Dark Match: Cheeseburger & Americos beat Dirty Outlaws.
Episode #4 Taping
(1) Young Bucks beat Silas Young (w/The Boys) & Beer City Bruiser. Mark Briscoe was out for commentary. Quick start by the Bucks, but Silas Young slowed the pace and cut the ring off as he and Bruiser worked over Matt Jackson on their side of the ring. Nick tagged in and cleaned house. After a few usual Young Bucks spots, Silas said this match was originally The Boys vs. the Bucks. The Boys got in some good-looking offense, but the Young Bucks hit More Bang For Your Buck for the victory.
Post match, Silas and Bruiser got into the ring. Bruiser got superkicked, but Silas rolled out of the ring before he could take a superkick. Then, the Bucks raised The Boys's hands and then, yes, superkicked them as well.
- B.J. Whitmer came out and got in Nigel's face before Mark Briscoe stood up, causing Nigel to get involved. Nigel separated them before Whitmer went to the back. No mics, so we couldn't hear what was said.
Will Ferrara was out next while Mark sat back down. Roderick Strong came out next for a match.
(2) Roderick Strong beat Will Ferrara. Roderick controlled about 95 percent of this match and kept yelling out Lethal's name, to play up his upcoming TV Title match. He won with the Stronghold.
Mark Briscoe left the commentary table and Jay Lethal made his way down to ringside.
Main Event Time with Kyle O'Reilly vs. Adam Cole vs. A.J. Styles. Lethal and Styles faced off before A.J. got into the ring. Before the match even started, Nigel sent everyone to the back, saying he wanted to see who the best man was and that wouldn't happen with everyone at ringside. So, Bobby Fish and Michael Elgin for O'Reilly, The Kingdom for Cole, and the Young Bucks for Styles were sent back.
(3) Adam Cole beat A.J. Styles and Kyle O'Reilly in a three-way match when Cole pinned O'Reilly. The match started with Cole going to the outside, only to be chased by O'Reilly. Once they got underway, there was a nice Fisherman Suplex/belly-to-back suplex combo with all three men involved. Cool spot. After a few dives to the outside, Cole and O'Reilly slowed the pace down some while A.J. recouped on the outside. A.J. then applied the Calfkiller to Cole until O'Reilly applied an armbar on A.J., which caused him to let Cole go, and then Cole applied a figure-four on A.J. at the same time as the armbar. O'Reilly gave him a "What are you doing?" look, which was pretty funny and got a laugh from the crowd. The finish came when O'Reilly had A.J. in an armbar, which Cole broke up as A.J. stood up. Then, Cole hit a brainbuster on O'Reilly for the win.
Post-match, all of the teams hit the ring and the Bullet Club stood tall. BC landed a few superkicks to Cole and Taven, then Lethal and Styles had a face-off to close the taping.
