The Bullet Club Called Out ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Dalton Castle and The Boys
It was interesting to hear The Young Bucks say that there was no one left in Ring of Honor to challenge them for the ROH World Tag Team Championship. ROH has a pretty deep tag team roster, so surely there's another tandem out there they haven't beaten yet. Then again, it is very possible they have eliminated all the competition. There aren't a ton of trios in ROH, either, so The Bullet Club looking to take those titles as well makes sense.
Marty Scurll def. Josh "The Goods" Woods, Vinny Marselgia, Will Ferrara, El Terrible and Frankie Kazarian in a Six-Man Mayhem Match
All of these guys are tremendously talented, but truth be told, Scurll shouldn't have been involved in this bout because he is on a much higher level than the rest of them. Thankfully, he won, so it wasn't too big of a problem. The multi-match was fun and the crowd seemed to enjoy it despite nothing seemingly being up for grabs. Meanwhile, Shane Taylor attacking Woods toward the end was weird if only because they're both heels, but on the bright side, at least it appears Taylor has some direction now that The Rebellion is no more.
Beer City Bruiser def. Brian Milonas
Milonas is a pretty well-known wrestler in the northeast area and previously appeared on ROH TV as part of the Top Prospect Tournament earlier this year. He had a solid showing here, but this match was more focused on showcasing the skills of Bruiser as well as Silas Young and his shenanigans at ringside. It lasted longer than I expected it to, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Young furthered his feud with Jay Lethal by mocking him afterward, playing up how he hasn't been seen in ROH since being attacked at Best in the World last month.
ROH World Television Champion Kusida def. Jay White
As much as I loved Scurll as TV Champion, Kushida can be awesome in the role too if he's a regular on ROH TV and ROH pay-per-views, especially if this outing was any indication of what he'll bring to the table as the title holder. Both of these men are excellent athletes, so it should have come as no surprise that they produced a very entertaining matchup. The closing stretch was great and White looked credible in defeat. I also liked that Kenny King showed up once the contest concluded to build to their upcoming championship clash.
There was a lot to like on this edition of ROH TV and pretty much everything served some sort of a purpose. The TV title was defended in a quality main event, the Young vs. Lethal storyline progressed, The Young Bucks threw down the gauntlet for a Six-Man Tag Team title match, and Scurll regained momentum by winning the Six-Man Mayhem bout. I'm really looking forward to Cody vs. Christopher Daniels in a 2-out-of-3 Falls match for the ROH World Championship in two weeks and next week's Women of Honor episode, which were also announced on this above-average show.
