ROH TV Episode 317: Disruption of Honor

By James Bullock Oct 18, 2017 - 7:10 AM print

Last week: The Bullet Club successfully defended the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship against Silas Young, Beer City Bruiser & Minoru Suzuki.

ROH TV Episode 317
Las Vegas, NV

The Addiction were stopped from entering the building because of their recent actions in interfering in matches and declaring war on the ROH fan base. Frankie Kazarian wanted to fight his way in, but Christopher Daniels opted not to and congratulated the security for doing a fine job.

Kushida vs. Scorpio Sky
Of course Kushida went after the left arm early before tripping his opposition. Sky – who many might remember from the Team Hell No anger management sessions – fought through the hold and dropkicked the IWGP Jr. Heavyweight champ to set up a backbreaker. Handspring back elbow connected for Kushida as the camera zoomed in on Kushida’s mom watching in the front row. Sky used an Irish whip against Kushida to head scissor his opponent with a neck breaker follow up. The fans were digging Sky as he scaled the ropes. Sky came flying off the top with an elbow drop when Kushida caught him in midair in the cross arm bar. An air horn suddenly sounded out, with the camera finding Christopher Daniels jumping the rail. Kushida could avoid Kazarian from attacking him before they unleashed Celebrity Rehab on Sky. The Addiction wanted to take out Kushida too, but Jay Lethal was there to stop any more damage from occurring.

During the commercial break, Jay Lethal challenged The Addiction to a tag match alongside Kushida after declaring he would no longer sit around and let people disrespect ROH.

We got a recap of what happened last week when Tommy Dreamer confronted Jay Briscoe about Briscoe attacking Bully Ray and potentially ending his career. Bully Ray arrived in the building, very subdued, wearing sunglasses and refusing to have his entrance music played. Ray apologized for being so unlike himself. Thanking the fans for appreciating him, Bully explained that he doesn’t know if he’ll be able to give them one last match; or even get his revenge on Jay Briscoe. Ray saluted the fans after thanking them once again just as Mark Briscoe came to ringside. Mark told Bully his problems weren’t with both brothers, just Jay. Bully and Mark embraced before leaving together.

A recap of Kenny King’s ROH Television Championship win and his proclamation last week in regards to him being a fighting champion has set the stage for a Four Corner Survival match for next week featuring Mark Briscoe, Shane Taylor, Punishment Martinez and Chuckie T.

The Bullet Club was in full effect including The Young Bucks’ father, Brandi Rhodes, Shane Taylor getting paid for watching their backs. Cody grabbed the microphone to announce ROH has offered him the most lucrative contract in ROH history. Dueling chants of, “You deserve it!” and, “No you don’t!” broke out before Cody took control once again to say he’s following the lead of The Young Bucks by signing with ROH. With his lawyer in tow, Cody signed his ROH contract in the middle of the ring while wearing a ROH baseball cap. With everyone but Cody leaving, the champ proclaimed he should defend his title right now. So who should it be? According to Cody, it’s someone who challenged him face-to-face, is incredibly popular and has a great entrance. The fans started chanting for Dalton Castle, but in reality it was Cheeseburger Cody was referring to.

ROH World Championship: Cody (c) vs. Cheeseburger
Cody, in his dress clothes, slapped the taste out of Cheeseburger’s mouth when his challenger wouldn’t kiss the ring. Cheeseburger didn’t appreciate the disrespect, mule kicking the champ out of the ring. Taking off his shirt, Cody lured Cheeseburger near the post. The champ was taken down by a plancha instead of pulling his challenger off his feet for the ring post-assisted low blow. Cody caught Cheeseburger coming in with the downward spiral. Taking off his belt, it seemed like Cody was ready to whip a black man. Cheeseburger avoided the illegal actions, catching Cody with several maneuvers before using the tornado hotshot in preparation for a flying knee. Before Cheeseburger could jump, Cody pulled him down. Cheeseburger fought through several stomps to execute a flying knee. Cheeseburger wanted to unleash his Shotei Palm Strike when he ran into Cross Rhodes … to give Cody a near fall because the champ stopped the pin!
Removing his cowboy boot, Cody was stopped by the referee from doing potentially something else illegal. Cody wasn’t prepared to be whipped by his own belt courtesy of his challenge; leading to a Cheeseburger small package that ended in a near fall. Cheeseburger was ready with the Shotei in mind, but ran into that inverted figure four that ended this match in a submission for the champ.

The Kingdom was infuriated about a conspiracy afoot against them and they were ready make Search & Destroy pay for their disrespect.

It was time for “Coleman’s Pulpit” with Caprice Coleman introducing The Dawgs (Rhett Titus & Will Ferrara) as his guests. Titus was happy to show off his body while Ferrara said how much he hated Cheeseburger. Titus, who stated he was leading Ferrara to the top just like he did his old partner, had the challenge ready for The Tempura Boyz next week.

Search & Destroy (The Motor City Machine Guns & Jonathan Gresham) vs. The Kingdom
Chris Sabin kicked this one off with Matt Taven, running into an illegal knee to the back from Vinny Marseglia that brought everyone in until The Kingdom was back dropped to the floor and dove on by all three opponents. It was all S & D with the triple team action on Taven. Gouging Sabin in the eyes, Taven got the blind tag from Vinny after shoving Sabin into The Kingdom’s corner to set up an ace crusher by Marseglia from the apron. Gnawing on Sabin’s face, Vinny pushed the champ into the corner for quick tags and even quicker strikes including Marseglia’s flying headbutt off TK O’Ryan’s spine buster that set up the PK courtesy of Taven prior to the commercial break.
The Kingdom had Rockstar Supernova in mind when the show returned, but Sabin wasn’t having any of their finisher. Kicking & rolling, Sabin took down all of his opponents. Leaping to Jonathan Gresham, Sabin was able to tag out. Double dropkick from Gresham dropped O’Ryan & Marseglia before Gresham sent Taven into TK with the spear. Gresham had the ankle lock cinched in on TK, but Taven was there with the save off the springboard roundhouse. Sabin tagged back in, being sent into Gresham by Taven. Shelley ran in, helping his partner pull off the Dream Sequence on Taven before helping his partner dive on TK on the floor. Taven was the only man in the ring, diving on everyone but Gresham who was perched on the apron for the springboard moonsault as a follow up. S & D signaled for the end on Taven when TK distracted the referee. Vinny knocked down Gresham as Taven whacked Sabin in the back with that walking stick he brings to the ring. Cradling Sabin, Taven got the pin for his team thanks to a handful of tights.

Overall: Another strong, story-driven episode here mostly thanks to a promo-heavy middle portion. The Bullet Club signing was a great moment not because the ROH World champion is finally locked down, but the fact the fans are excited to see Dalton Castle challenge for the title. Kudos to Cheeseburger – he’s one of the best underdog babyfaces going today. The sympathy Cheeseburger garners and somehow pulls in the fans into believing he can win is fantastic. Prior to all that was the Bully Ray promo – making it two for two over the course of two weeks in successfully garnering true emotion from everyone involved in this potential storyline that feels more like art imitating life than the other way around. Kushida and Scorpio Sky had a good sprint before The Addiction interference that was meant to set up a match for next week’s show that is now pretty much set with the three matches announced from this episode (the Four Corner Survival, The Dawgs vs. The Tempura Boyz, and The Addiction vs. Kushida & Lethal). The main event was the only somewhat disappointing thing from the episode, but only because of the ending. The Kingdom is talking about a conspiracy against them, yet defeats one-half of the new ROH Tag Team champions by illegal activity. The ending felt counterproductive to introducing new champs and reinforcing why The Kingdom feels wronged. The match itself, though, was really good and a rematch would definitely be something worth seeing. It’s not the most must-see episode from ROH TV, but a strong one that won’t make you feel like you’ve wasted your time for watching.
