Dak Draper def. Fred Yehi in a Pure Rules Match
Yehi has been impressive any time I've seen him in action since Ring of Honor's relaunch. If he isn't already signed to some sort of a deal, he should be. As for Draper, he always bored me because we knew nothing about him originally and he felt generic, but he's been coming into his own since ROH's relaunch as well. This was a well-wrestled Pure Rules match with the expected win for Draper. I'd like to see more of these guys on the show in the future.
Tony Deppen def. ROH World Tag Team Champion Kenny King
Deppen is another one of those guys who I didn't know a ton about before recently, but he's had strong showings whenever I've seen him in action on ROH TV or at Final Battle. I figured this would be an easy win for King, but Deppen scored plenty of offense and had a great comeback, which made for an entertaining affair. Deppen scoring the upset victory was a pleasant surprise as well. Brody King attempted to make the save afterward but was put through a table by La Faccion Ingobernable, so he doesn't appear to be finished with them.
Flamita def. Flip Gordon
I completely forgot that Gordon unmasked Flamita at one point, so that's why this match happened. They didn't have a ton of time to work with, but it was enjoyable for the five minutes or so it lasted. This was another result that surprised me, though this was due to Mark Briscoe costing Gordon the win out of retaliation for Gordon costing him and Jay a win several weeks back. I assume we'll get Gordon vs. Mark Briscoe out of this.
ROH's 19th Anniversary Show is coming up next Friday, March 26th and it's shaping up to be a strong show. I appreciate how most of the matches make sense aren't thrown together for the sake of having a pay-per-view. Before then, we have Eli Isom vs. Rey Horas and The Foundation vs. La Faccion Ingobernable on next week's episode. This was a nice edition of ROH TV filled with three quality matches and successful storyline advancement pertaining to the 19th Anniversary Show.
