ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions S.O.S. def. Dalton Castle and Dak Draper
Castle and Draper (along with Eli Isom) recently unsuccessfully challenged Shane Taylor Promotions (which S.O.S. are a part of) for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship. There wasn't anything out of the ordinary about this outing (other than Castle's odd antics at ringside), but it was well worked and gave S.O.S. another win. Kenny King and Dragon Lee attacked S.O.S. afterward, leading to S.O.S. challenging them for the ROH World Tag Team Championship.
Willow def. Angelina Love and Miranda Alize in a Three-Way Match to Qualify for the ROH World Women's Championship No. 1 Contender's Match
For starters, Willow's got a great entrance. She's a ball of energy and is going to be a big fan favorite when Ring of Honor starts running shows with crowds smore regularly. She was the right choice to win. I find Love to be abysmal in the ring, but she held her own here while the other two mostly carried the match into decent territory. On a side note, Chelsea Green was fine on commentary per usual, but when the hell is she going to start wrestling on ROH TV?
The OGK def. ROH World Champion Bandido and Rey Horus
I feel like we've seen far more of Bandido in tag team action with Horus than we have on his own as the ROH World Champion. There isn't a lot of excitement around the top title at the moment despite Bandido having a few different challengers lined up. As for this match, it was great stuff. There was plenty of back-and-forth action and all four guys worked well together. The OGK are in the tag team power rankings right now and Bandido and Horus are not, so while it made sense that they won, you would never know Bandido is the ROH World Champion coming out of this because the title was such an afterthought. If this isn't leading to anything for Bandido, why put him in there in the first place?
This edition of ROH TV was all about the in-ring action. The first two matches were given an ample amount of time and were enjoyable while they lasted. The main event was obviously the best of the bunch and would have been even hotter in front of a crowd (when can ROH start filming the weekly television show in front of fans, by the way?). I also liked how we got to hear from everyone via pre-match promos before each match. This was your usual quality hour of wrestling from ROH. Next week, The Foundation will take on Taylor Rust, Eli Isom, Joe Keys and World Famous CB while S.O.S. challenge Lee and King for the ROH World Championship.
