The ROHbot Report: Queen City Excellence Results, Kenny Omega Returns, and More

By James Bullock Aug 5, 2017 - 7:24 AM print


Welcome to another edition of The ROHbot Report – the only article you need for all the Ring of Honor news you have to know. ROH held its latest TV taping that featured some interesting decisions (good & bad). Lets find out what happened.

- Cody Rhodes & Hangman Page vs. Bully Ray & Mark Briscoe ended when The Kingdom attacked Briscoe and Bully Ray until Jay Briscoe came out to even the odds.

You know the routine – I’m not going to judge too harshly about what happened during the TV taping without actually seeing the product these tapings were done for. With that being stated, Ring of Honor returned to the Mid-Atlantic region for it’s latest step toward September’s “Death Before Dishonor” pay-per-view and the results on paper definitely leave a lot to be desired. With three title matches taped over the course of four episodes and only one ending with some semblance of what once differentiated ROH from the rest of the pack as disqualifications and title matches ending in controversial fashion due to interference it definitely proves to be a little upsetting for a long-time ROHbot – fans built on the reputation of clean finishes and only the best of the best being victorious. Highly promoted and anticipated bouts like Kushida and Kenny King and the Tag Team title matches ending due to people not involved getting physically involved. While all of these happenings will probably play a role in the big picture (King’s push toward a possible TV title reign, a rematch from last year’s Ladder War, The Bullet Club’s continued quest for championship dominance), the fact remains these redundant endings seen in almost every wrestling company doesn’t keep things fresh or exciting in ROH.

On the opposite end of the spectrum were some intriguing developments in the Six-Man Tag division. With Jay Briscoe channeling his anger from losing the Six-Man Tag Team title to Dalton Castle & The Boys – the only champions who successfully defended their titles during this taping – the former World champion drew the ire of The Kingdom. With TK O’Ryan on the mend, The Briscoes & Bully Ray still a unit, and The Bullet Club trying to attain that ever-illusive Six-Man title victory, things are really picking up in the company’s youngest division. While things are essentially budding between three trios, the problems between Jay Lethal & Silas Young and Jay White & Punishment Martinez continued during this taping as the latter attacked each other following their respective matches while Lethal attempted to break Beer City Bruiser’s legs in the figure four leg lock. This taping definitely looks like a mixed bag, but thanks to the talent there’s a great chance the episodes will turn out a lot better when the shows air than compared to what they look like on the figurative paper (and that’s not a reference to the mystery envelope story returning courtesy of QT Marshall).

The first-ever War of the Worlds: UK tour will occur from August 18th, 2017 – August 20th, 2017! With stronger-than-ever partnerships, stars from the top professional wrestling organizations in the world will do battle over the course of three nights! Officials from Ring of Honor, New Japan, CMLL, and Rev Pro have been meeting throughout the early parts of the summer creating &signing matches the fans want to see including this match signed for Liverpool: Ultimo Guerrero & Rey Bucanero vs. Mistico & Titan!

The stars of CMLL will be apart of the “War of the Worlds: UK” tour including bona fide legends. Out of the four competitors only Ultimo Guerrero is familiar to the ROH audience & roster by having competed in tag team encounters in ROH and taken Matt Taven to the limit in CMLL. Alongside Guerrero for this match will be the ROH debuting Rey Bucanero – a man who has won the CMLL World Light Heavyweight title, but also the World Tag Team Championship four times with three of those reigns happening alongside Ultimo. On the opposite end of the spectrum will be their opponents – two respected fan favorites who have been in the ring dozens of times with their opponents in various environments. Over the past two years Mistico has been trying to regain the CMLL World Welterweight Championship after having to vacate it due to a shattered leg. Though he hasn’t gained the same prominence of his past or even his past namesake by himself, Mistico has still gained championship glory by becoming the CMLL World Trios champion. Originally it was supposed to be Atlantis teaming with Mistico, but due to an injury Titan has replaced the man who is actually responsible for unmasking Guerrero. Titan is a grappler of ten years who has won multiple championships including the Mexican National Welterweight title and competed in various tournaments including the Best of Super Juniors in 2013. This should be a very fun encounter rooted in the traditional lucha libre style without going overboard.

The Liverpool stop of the War of the Worlds UK Tour will be available LIVE on ROHWrestling.com and the Fite.TV app! Now, Jay Briscoe teams with the two men he captured the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship looking for revenge against members of Los Ingobernables de Japon, BUSHI, EVIL & Tetsuya Naito!

It’s amazing how one match can change the entire dynamic of a team – look no further than the final leg of May’s “War of the Worlds” tour for an example of what can happen when things go awry. It was a first-ever eight-man tag team bout featuring then-reigning Six-Man Tag Team champions The Briscoes & Bully Ray aligning with Dalton Castle to take on Los Ingobernables de Japan. The somewhat lighthearted affair turned anything but when BUSHI decided to use his blinding mist. Unfortunately for Jay Briscoe, The Boys got in the middle of it to save Castle and the former ROH World champion got caught in the crossfire – resulting in a rare pin on Jay Briscoe that infuriated him to the point he became obsessed with getting revenge on The Boys. Briscoe’s need to vindicate the loss cost his & his team everything as The Boys & Castle defeated The Briscoes & Ray to become the new ROH World Six-Man Tag Team champions. Another big loss came courtesy of The Bullet Club for Ray & Dem Boys – leaving them 0-3 in tag team matches since May. To get things back on track, Ray has not only demanded Jay to focus his anger on hurting their opponents to the point of victory, but also a match with the faction that caused their losing streak to begin. The former Six-Man Tag Team champions will get their wish in Liverpool live on iPPV as the trio of former IWGP Heavyweight champion Tetsuya Naito will lead his men of EVIL & BUSHI yet again. But this match should be completely different from their first encounter as The Briscoes & Ray won’t be looking to enjoy the moment like they did in Philly, but are determined to attain victory by any means necessary – a common act when it comes to LIJ. This one could get incredibly wild and result in one of two things for the former ROH World Six-Man Tag Team champs: the beginning of their journey back to tag team greatness, or a reassertion that the days of Six-Man division dominance may be over for Dem Boys & the man from Hell’s Kitchen.

On Sunday, Oct. 15th, the “Global Wars” tour will roll through Chicago with ROH debuting at the Odeum Expo Center. It wouldn’t be enough to just add a show for the Chicago fans though. Ring of Honor is happy to also announce that Kenny Omega, the inaugural IWGP United States Heavyweight Champion, will be in action at Global Wars 2017: Chicago!

This is big news for two reasons. First there’s the obvious announcement that Kenny Omega will make his ROH return with this being his first singles match in the company in over seven years. The other important fact connected to this news is ROH debuting in a bigger venue. Since 2004, ROH’s Chicago events have been held in Chicago Ridge’s Frontier Fieldhouse – a building that Ring of Honor outgrew years ago, but became something of a Midwest home for the company. It’ll be very interesting to see if this is a full change or just specifically made for this monumental show similar to the days ROH would switch between the Manhattan Center and the Hammerstein Ballroom depending on the event’s importance.

Cody-Daniels II


Ryan Nova vs. O.G. Mike


Kevin Steen vs. El Generico
