Ian welcomes everyone to the show. Holidead is on commentary. Sledge comes out first. Brian Zane attempts to interview Sledge backstage. Sledge interrupts Brian and asks him how long has he known him. Zane says 10 years. Sledge asks Zane why at Best in the World Zane called him Steve while choking Zane. Zane said he did it just for fun. He says his name is Sledge and he is going to teach PCO that. PCO comes out next. PCO says it’s a no disqualification match which means it’s alive.

(Maitland’s Thoughts: Basic promo from both wrestlers setting up the match.)

This match is no disqualification and falls count anywhere. Code of honor not adhered to. Sledge attacks PCO from behind before the bell rings. Sledge hits PCO with a series of forearms but PCO fight backs and takes Sledge down with a shoulder charge. Sledge counters with a back elbow.

WINNER: Sledge at 14:59

Sledge gets up and stumbles to his feet. He sits down near the announce table. (c)

(Maitland’s Thoughts: The match was clipped so it is hard to get a complete read on it in its entirety. Sledge and PCO have been in a feud for most of the fall so this was a fitting end. This was also PCO’s end in ROH. Two years ago he was ROH World Champion but they got out all they could out of him. PCO is announced for several GCW events so we will be seeing more of him there.)


Mandy Leon and Angelina Love are on commentary. Miranda Alize comes out first. Chelsea Green comes out second.

Code of honor adhered to. The match begins with a lock up. They trade control of the arm and reach a stalemate. Green hits an arm drag followed by a drop kick and a snap mare.

(Maitland’s Thoughts: Like the previous match, this match was clipped. The match airs in its entirety on YouTube for those who are interested as part of last week’s Women’s Division Wednesday. This match was a good setup for the 6 women’s match that took place at Final Battle but most people like me saw it after. It made no sense for Green to release the hold when Love and Leon were nowhere her.)

(3) EC3 vs ELI ISOM

Dalton Castle is on commentary. EC3 comes out first. In a pre-match promo, EC3 says the time for honor has come to an end. EC3 asks for people so he can give them their purpose. This is a time to jump head first into the unknown. The past is nothing but a story and now is a time to control your narrative. Eli Isom comes out next. In a pre-match promo, Isom says EC3 has been asking if honor is real. Eli Isom comes out next. Eli Isom says thinks EC3 is still searching to see if honor is real. Eli Isom says he has been taught honor from the ground up and now it is his time to teach EC3. HE says not only does he know honor but he is honor.

(Maitland’s Thoughts: Both promos did a good job of displaying the contrast between these two wrestlers.)

Code of honor adhered to. The match begins with a lock up. EC3 hits a side headlock takeover. Isom gains control through a head scissors. Isom hits an arm drag and controls the arm. EC3 asks Isom if he fights for himself or for the corporate overlords. EC3 breaks the hold. They lock up again and EC3 does a side headlock take down.

EC3 stumbles away from the ring but he returns to talk to Eli Isom. EC3 whispers to Isom and hugs him. EC3 leaves. Isom yells at EC3 to shake his hand. A graphic shows the matches for next week which is called a Top Prospect special. Those matches will be Eric Martin vs Adrian Soriano vs Rayo vs Joe Keys, Dante Caballero vs Matt Makowski and Josh Woods vs Dak Draper.

(Maitland’s Thoughts: This match told a good story of Eli Isom winning the respect of EC3 but Isom not respecting EC3 in return. The second and third matches ended up being good storyline development for Final Battle but most people like me watched this after Final Battle. Those two matches should have aired last week. This show also included none of the excellent Final Battle videos that were on ROH’s social media. I assumed the first two matches were clipped to air some of those videos but that was not the case. There are two shows left in this incarnation of Ring of Honor but Final Battle was a great show to end on. Sean Radican has a written report on PWTorch.com and I recommend watching Final Battle for those who have not seen it. Justin McClelland and I will also discuss Final Battle on this week’s Honor Speak podcast.)
