SPOTLIGHTED PODCAST ALERT (YOUR ARTICLE BEGINS A FEW INCHES DOWN)...
ROH LIVE EVENT REPORT – “UNAUTHORIZED”
APRIL 28, 2017
MILWAUKEE, WISC. AT TURNER HALL BALLROOM
REPORT BY BLAKE REILLY from The Blake & Sal Show, PWTorch correspondent
(A) Stacy Shadows beat Sierra. The Brew City Wrestling women put on a show.
Hosts for the night: Silas Young & Beer City Bruiser
Note: Silas kept calling the show ROH Unsanctioned for the first half of the show. Bruiser fixed it in the second half.
(1) The Motor City Machineguns (Chris Sabin & Alex Shelley) beat The Kingdom when Sabin pinned Vinny Marseglia. This match was over the top. They even brawled to the bar and The Kingdom did shots.
(2) Beer City Bruiser won a four-way match over Shane Taylor and Punishment Martinez and Cheeseburger when he pinned Cheeseburger after spitting beer in his face. Silas and Bruiser took some shots before the match.
(3) Adam Cole beat Jay White. Fantastic match. Hangman Page interfered. After the match, Page attacked Cole and Romantic Touch came out.
(4) Hangman Page beat The Romantic Touch. Cole tried to interfere and Touch kissed him. After the match, Page hanged Touch.
(5) The Briscoes & Bully Ray beat Dalton Castle & War Machine in a Milwaukee Street Fight. War Machine came out dressed as The Boy and Dalton called them Boy Machine. Halfway through Bully and Dalton had a pose off. Insanely hysterical. Hanson went through a table, Dalton got pinned by Mark after a 3-D. After the match, Bully Ray put over the the crowd and everyone in the ring. Ray Rowe called for the code of honor.
(6) Will Ferrera beat Jarrod Jaxx. Afterward, Will stole one of Brusier’s beers. Bruiser was pissed.
(7) Marty Scurll beat Delirious. Yes, you are reading that right. Continuing the trend of the evening, Delirious crawled through the ring with a beer can in his mouth and got super-kicked for his trouble. Scurll broke one of Delirious’s fingers and toes.
The Young Bucks vs. The Addiction was scheduled, but a guy ran down and handed a note to Bruiser that The Addiction had food poisoning. So it turned into an “Open Challenge Match.”
(8) The Young Bucks beat The Legion of Boom (Christopher Daniels & Kaz). LOB sang themselves to the ring and the crowd helped. In the ring, they said they wanted to face the Midnight Rockers (The Bucks) for the AWA World Tag Team Championship. This led to a AWA chant. After the match, Daniels and Kaz left and Kaz took Bruiser’s whiskey and drank it up the ramp.
(9) Silas Young beat Jay Lethal. Bruiser gave Young a hero’s introduction to the crowd’s delight. Awesome match in front of a still hot but tired crowd.
FINAL NOTES: Overall a fantastic show. This will probably never see the light of day on television, but watch the on demand version or DVD if you want to see a red hot sold out crowd and a weird fun night. This was unique and definitely different from any other show I’ve attended.
