ROH TV Episode 309: Boys Will Be Boys

By James Bullock Aug 22, 2017 - 8:11 PM print

Last week: Kenny King’s TV title opportunity turned into a successful tag team encounter as Kushida teamed with his challenger to defeat The Bullet Club’s Adam Page & Marty Scurll.

ROH TV Episode 309
Chicago, IL

Dalton Castle & The Boys greeted the viewers by recapping last week’s confrontation between the aforementioned champions and their challengers for tonight in Colt Cabana & The Tempura Boyz after Cabana claimed Sho & Yo were better boys than The Boys.

Best Friends vs. Coast to Coast
Caprice Coleman joined the commentators’ table alongside Ian Riccaboni & BJ Whitmer as Leon St. Giovanni and Chuck Taylor locked up to tell the world that he had a show in the works. In the ring, Taylor missed a moonsault, only to land on his feet to create a stalemate situation where both men tagged out. Beretta and Shaheem Ali were equally matched in the strength department, but the maneuvering advantage went to Beretta as he caught his opponent running with the back elbow smash. Reversing an Irish whip, Ali back dropped his way to a tag to set up a series of double team maneuvers including a snap mare into stereo dropkicks. Poor Beretta took the Flair turnbuckle bump, but got caught on the top turnbuckle. Blind tag by Taylor allowed him to almost take Ali’s head off before embracing his partner as the show entered a commercial break.
The show returned with Ali belly to back suplexing Beretta to make the tag. “The Human Rocket” LSG was on fire with the double flipping clothesline topped by a cross body block on Taylor and a gut-buster on Beretta. Grabbing Taylor, LSG held Chuck for Ali’s flatliner off the stroke that only gave them a two count. Taylor recovered, dumping Ali over the top rope before double teaming Giovanni. Beretta was the legal man, landing an enzuguri to the entering Ali. Showing incredible strength, Ali turned Beretta’s tornado DDT attempt into the swinging power slam. The Best Friends were stuck at ringside, prone to a pair of dives from their opponents including a springboard 450 by LSG. Beretta was alone, prone to a double team slam-splash combo … that gave CtC a near fall thanks to the interfering Chuck Taylor!
With Ali and Taylor fighting on the floor, LSG scaled the ropes with another 450 in mind. Beretta got his knees up, landing the flying knee when both men got up. LSG couldn’t stop a stump piledriver by Taylor followed up with the cradle piledriver from Beretta to give the latter a pin fall for his team.

Early today it was a backstage brawl between Jay Lethal and Silas Young when Young interrupted a promo by Lethal. Beer City Bruiser got involved, setting up a sneak attack from “The Last Real Man” that left the former World champion wallowing in the parking lot.

The show returned with Lethal demanding he wants to fight Beer City Bruiser and Silas Young sooner than later.

Jay Briscoe vs. Matt Taven w/ The Kingdom
Briscoe rushed Taven before the bell, only to be sidestepped and stomped. The former World champion rallied back, utilizing a hurricarana to send Taven to the floor. Vinny Marseglia distracted Briscoe long enough for a sneak attack by Taven, but the momentum was still in Jay’s favor as he brought the fight to his old rival when the action returned inside. Snap mare-dropkick combo from Briscoe ended in a two count for the former World champion, as did the snap suplex. European uppercuts rocked Taven, but he was able to turn a sunset flip follow up into a running knee strike that put him in control heading into the commercial break.
Taven was climbing the ropes when the show returned, only to miss his flying attack to utilize the Death Valley driver. Briscoe was lighting Taven up with strikes until he whipped Matt into the ropes and was hit with a flying kick. Briscoe recovered quickly, getting his knees up to stop a caperana and almost clothesline Taven out of his boots. Time bomb neck breaker didn’t work for Briscoe as Taven countered with the enzuguri-blue thunder bomb combo … to gain a near fall!
Briscoe blocked the Climax, dropkicking Taven to the floor in prime position for the suicide dive. Briscoe landed on his head! Somehow, Briscoe was the first one up, throwing in Taven to yakuza kick him. Vinny ran in, taking the Time bomb neck breaker. When TK O’Ryan tried to use his crutch to hit Briscoe, Jay caught the intended weapon before putting him in the corner with a threat of bashing him with the crutch. When Briscoe turned his attention back to Taven, O’Ryan removed his cast to attack Briscoe from behind. The referee called for the bell as Marseglia pushed in several chairs before laying one on top of the fallen Briscoe. Using a pair of chairs, The Kingdom pulled off a con-chair-to to a loud chorus of boos.

Cody was here to have the referee read off the list of names he had defeated to retain his title including Jack Swagger and Ricochet.

ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship: Dalton Castle & The Boys (c) vs. Colt Cabana & The Tempura Boyz
During Castle’s entrance, his challengers did a little Rockette dance. When the old tag team partners turned rivals locked up, Castle couldn’t peacock pose his way to an advantage, but The Boys were there to tie him up before Japanese arm dragging The Tempura Boyz. The Boyz recovered, pulling their opponents out of the ring so Cabana could do a little posing of his own heading into the commercial.
Castle wasn’t happy when the show returned as he tossed all of his opponents before posing as well. Things had settled down, leading to another showdown between Cabana and Castle until “The Peacock” demanded Sho enter the ring. Boy 2 became the legal man after some grappling between Castle and Sho ended in a stalemate. The Boys dared The Boyz to meet them in a game of chicken when Cabana ran in and shoved The Boys to the mat for some mudhole stomping action. Boy 1 was on the wrong part of town, getting slammed around with ease leading to the final commercial break.
The Boys pulled a little twin magic to bring Castle in legally for his invitation to Suplex City that put all of his opponents on the floor for dives including one from Castle on Cabana. Colt was prone to stereo dropkicks by The Boys into Castle’s German suplex. The Boyz ran interference, taking out Castle with a modified 3D. Boy 1 ran in to save his brother, but Cabana knocked both of them out of the sky. When Cabana rushed Castle he ran into the Bang-A-Rang that culminated in a three count for “The Peacock”.
Castle grabbed the microphone to tell Colt how Cabana inspired him, yet Colt made him an enemy instead of a friend. After defeating Cabana three times, Castle wanted to know if he had finally earned Colt’s respect. The fans wanted them to hug, but Cabana gave Dalton a handshake instead.

Overall: A very interesting episode based around ROH’s tag team divisions, even the singles match between Briscoe and Taven (a fantastic bout that continued to prove just how much chemistry both have, as well as how fun Jay Briscoe is to watch work) as TK O’Ryan revealed he’s at least out of his cast – potentially setting the stage for The Briscoes & Bully Ray feuding with The Kingdom that could lead to either fighting for and potentially regaining the Six-Man title. The opener was expected fun as Coast to Coast are one of the most underrated teams on TV right now who have chemistry with everyone they’re in the ring including guys who are growing into top contenders again. The main event wasn’t exceptional, but really a lot better than expected considering the comedy aspects are usually reserved for everything but the main event. This was easily the best six-man bout featuring Castle & The Boys topped off by Dalton and Cabana burying the hatchet. The closing segment was very old school ROH that felt necessary when their feud never really had a definitive conclusion. Top to bottom good stuff this week including the parking lot brawl stuff, but nothing really must-see – just a good hour of wrestling that won’t leave a figurative mark, but is enjoyable throughout.
