ROH Pure Champion Josh Woods def. LSG in a Pure Rules Match
LSG has made a handful of appearances on the AEW Dark shows this year, so while I figured he had no shot of winning because he isn't under an exclusive contract to the company, it was still cool to see him get this opportunity. He's done some great work during Ring of Honor's pandemic period and had another impressive performance here as well. As for Woods, he's an excellent fit as Pure Champion and once again proved in this match that the pure style is right up his alley. This was a quality contest with LSG looking credible in defeat.
ROH World Champion Bandido def. Alex Zayne
This was a similar case to the opener in that you had to know Zayne wasn't winning the title considering he isn't under a full-time deal to ROH. Despite that, I was looking forward to this match following their fun first encounter back in early 2020 (prior to Zayne's brief WWE run). It was another entertaining outing from them, though it was one of those matches you wish there was a crowd for. With the styles they work, the two of them would have benefited from that, but they still made the most of the environment they were in and produced a blast of a main event.
There was a good chunk of filler in the middle between the highlights from last week's Halloween episode and The Bouncers bullying the commentators to set up Beer City Bruiser vs. Caprice Coleman for next week. Since this was billed as the championship edition of ROH TV, I would've rather seen the opener and main event get more time instead of that stuff. Nonetheless, this was an enjoyable hour of wrestling on the whole with both bouts being as well wrestled as you'd expect. It's hard to not think that the end is near for ROH with December's Final Battle pay-per-view being announced as their final event for the foreseeable future, but hopefully they can keep putting on strong shows until then.
