Dak Draper vs. Eli Isom Ended in a Time-Limit Draw
Draper and Isom are two guys to watch and are benefiting more than most from the pre-match interviews ROH is doing before the matches on the weekly show these days. I feel like I know them a lot better now and care about their matches more as a result. This was well-wrestled with both guys having solid showings. Before they could get more time, Dalton Castle came out wearing a pink suit and a bunch of people that looked like the new Boys. He established himself as a heel by laying out Isom and Draper with low blows. It was recently confirmed that he re-signed with Ring of Honor and I'm glad it appears they already have something in mind for him to do.
The Righteous Addressed Vincent's Whereabouts
Bateman, Vita Von Starr and the newest member Butch were out for this segment. What happened to the clown guy? At any rate, I love how creepy The Righteous come across. They're the perfect cult, similar to how The Wyatt Family were when they first arrived on WWE's main roster. They tried to explain why Vincent wasn't with them, and to me it sounded like cult members explaining why their leader went into hiding. In other words, it was well done. I really hope Vincent's rivalry with Matt Taven because that ran its course.
La Faccion Ingobernable (ROH World Champion Rush, La Bestia del Ring and Kenny King) def. Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Chris Dickinson and Homicide) by Disqualification
Violence Unlimited has been styling their name VLNCE UNLTD, but it's just easier to refer to them as Violence Unlimited in my opinion. The match was fun, fast-paced and hard-hitting while it lasted, but it didn't last long enough to get out of first gear. We've been seeing more and more non-finishes from this company lately and I don't like it, but at least it made sense in this case to protect both trios. The post-match brawl featuring the two stables, as well as The Foundation, made up for it.
Footage was also shown from a match that aired on ROH's Week by Week show on April 20th and it saw Beer City Bruiser beat Joe Keys. He then teamed up with Ken Dixson to take out the rest of the ROH Dojo guys, so that might be the new version of The Bouncers. They'll be facing The OGK next week. A lot happened on this edition of ROH TV, and although I appreciated the storyline progression, the two non-finishes were disappointing. One is bad enough, but two? ROH knows better. It wasn't a throwaway show, but it wasn't up to its usual standards, either. I did like the hype package at the end for Tracy Williams vs. Tony Deppen next week, though.
