Brian Johnson def. PJ Black in a Pure Rules Match
These two have been tied together for a while and I thought their alliance recently ended and I just missed it, but this bout came about because Black wanted Johnson to prove himself against him in a Pure Rules match. In other words, they're still friendly, despite Johnson cheating to beat him here. I'm glad Johnson has branched out on his own because he's been fantastic throughout this pandemic period, especially on the mic. This was a well-worked match with the right outcome. This might have actually benefited from not happening in an area full of fans because I'm not sure who they would have cheered for.
The Foundation (ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham, Jay Lethal, Tracy Williams and Rhett Titus) def. Violence Unlimited (Brody King, Tony Deppen and ROH World Tag Team Champions Chris Dickinson and Homicide)
(From my Glory by Honor: Night 2 review...) It was great to see Williams back in action after the car accident he was involved in a car accident a few months ago. He's one of the best wrestlers ROH has on its roster and that was certainly evident during this match. He didn't show any signs of ring rust at all and, in fact, everyone looked excellent in this match. This was a wild eight-man tag team affair as everyone beat the hell out of each other and put forth a fantastic effort. Violence Unlimited laid out The Foundation afterward, so it appears the faction wars aren't over yet.
Brody King def. Jay Lethal, ROH World Tag Team Champion Kenny King and ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion Shane Taylor in a Four Corner Survival Match
We got a representative from every major faction in Ring of Honor at the moment in this match. I don't where ROH is going with these faction wars, but the matches have been consistently delivering, so it's hard to complain. I'm surprised this didn't get more time than it did given that all four are stars for ROH, but it was an entertaining main event, nonetheless. We'll see if this win amounts to anything for King and if he'll get another shot at the ROH World Championship or if it will be forgotten about.
In addition to the two matches, we got backstage promos from Johnson and Black, an advertisement for the revamped women's division (which we'll hopefully start to see more of on the show soon now that a new champion has been crowned in Rok-C), and promos from Ryan Mooney and Eli Isom promoting their upcoming match on the next episode of Week by Week. The main event should have lasted longer, but it was enjoyable for the time given, and the opener was solid stuff. It was a fairly standard show on the whole and an efficient hour of wrestling. I'm really looking forward to The Briscoes vs. Alex Zayne and Taylor Rust next week.
