ROH TV Episode 336: The Last Real King

By James Bullock Mar 1, 2018 - 7:08 AM print

Last week: The new ROH Enforcer of Honor Bully Ray looked to make a wrong right by restarting a Six-Man Tag Team title match after SoCal Uncensored cheated their way to victory over The Hung Bucks to allow the latter to retain their title.

ROH TV Episode 336
Atlanta, GA

Bully Ray opened the show to explain how honor should dictate what happens in ROH; making him proud to be a part of the best pro wrestling company on the planet as long as honor is the root of what happens while promising all thrills and no fills during this taping.

The Young Bucks vs. SoCal Uncensored (Frankie Kazarian & Scorpio Sky)
No Code of Honor after Bully’s speech saw SoCal get the early advantage until a pair of Irish whips allowed The Young Bucks to dropkick both opponents to the floor. Cody suddenly came out to prematurely celebrate with The Young Bucks before joining the commentators’ table prior to the commercial break.
Cody was all smiles even though Matt Jackson was isolated on the wrong part of town; proclaiming The Bullet Club is fine. Slipping & sliding after hitting the springboard diamond dust, Matt was able to tag out. Nick Jackson connected with a roundhouse kick that put Sky in position for a double stomp. Kazarian was stuck in the ropes following a trip that allowed him to connect with a lung blower. Kazarian fought through the double team predicament that followed, hitting that slingshot DDT on the apron as Nick was knocked to the floor for a Sky somersault plancha. Once again it was Matt on the wrong part of the ring, having to fight through a double team. Sliding through the ropes, Matt dropkicked Sky, only to be taken down by a Kazarian hurricarana. Kazarian got up, feeling that running kick off the apron by Nick before Sky hit the ace crusher on him. Matt was the first up, somersaulting off the stage to wipe out his opponents and allow him to bring the action back into the ring. Super kick blocked by Sky, as was the sharpshooter. Sky was going ace crusher crazy; allowing him and Kazarian to cinch in dragon sleepers. The Bucks countered, locking in double sharpshooters heading into another commercial break.
Super kicks landed for The Bucks after they stopped dual cradles. Before they could pull off the Indytaker, Kazarian kicked his way to freedom; leaving Nick to pick up the slack until he had Sky ready for the Meltzer Driver and the subsequent three count in the Six-Man Tag champs’ favor.
Christopher Daniels attacked The Bucks from behind, but Cody took his sweet time to help. Actually it wasn’t until Adam Page ran in with a chair did Cody join in helping his fellow Bullet Club members.

Several weeks ago, Kenny King picked up a big victory over Silas Young in a six-man tag team bout. Sometime between then & now, Young attacked Kenny in the backstage area after being distracted by the big mouths of Beer City Bruiser & Brian Milonas. With King unable to fight back, “The Last Real Man” gladly proclaimed he’d fight King any time he wants his ROH TV title rematch.

The last several weeks have seen The Briscoes attack The Motor City Machine Guns to stake their claim at regaining the ROH World Tag Team Championship. That match will happen at the “16th Anniversary”.

Kelly Klein reintroduced herself as the obvious favorite to win the inaugural Women of Honor Championship tournament. “Bonesaw” Jessie Brooks couldn’t help but be humored that Klein believes she’s the baddest woman in the Women of Honor. Brooks, the self-proclaimed “baddest woman on the planet”, promised to drop Klein on her head. In actuality it was Klein doing the head dropping in a highlight video that showed her kneeing Brooks into unconsciousness to win.

Deonna Purrazzo was glad to take on any competitor to full rebirth Women of Honor – something she fought for three years ago. Emotional, Purrazzo expressed her hope to finally become a Women’s champion and become a role model. Deonna’s opponent in Holidead talked about her personality being that of destruction & darkness that’ll guide her through the tournament. In their match, Purrazzo turned a head scissors attempt into the Fujiwara Arm Bar for the submission victory.

To hype the “16th Anniversary”, we got some dueling promos including Cody proclaiming he’ll get his ring back while Taven was thankful the world would see Matt’s dominance over him; The Briscoes saying they’ll get their belts back and The Machine Guns promising to make this match a personal beating; Punishment Martinez promising to make Marty Scurll his next victim while Scurll sees it as a chance to cause a spot of bother; and Jay Lethal being excited to get his title back from Dalton Castle with the champion himself having butterflies in his stomach for his believed next successful title defense.

ROH World Television Championship: Silas Young (c) vs. Kenny King
The Code of Honor was actually followed before the opening bell. The first few moments were all grappling with them fighting over the headlock exchange until both men were thinking dropkicks and failed. King almost ran over the champion, only to be tripped when looking for the follow-up. The referee never saw Beer City Bruiser’s interference, but Bully Ray did and ushered Silas’ seconds to the back. The distraction allowed for Young to attack the happy challenger from behind, but King was still aware enough to fight back. Sending the running King over the top rope, Young was able to take control of this one; mocking the fans while executing a slingshot double stomp prior to the commercial break.
The show returned with King catching Young with the spinning heel kick. The challenger got up throwing right hands until Young was on the floor. The champ avoided that corkscrew plancha, but not Eddy Gordo. King took too much time celebrating, getting tripped off the apron. The challenger recovered quickly, using an Irish whip against Silas as King jumped up to the stage to somersault off. King quickly took a selfie with a fan; following up with a cross body in the ring. Young blocked the second Eddy Gordo, only to run into a spine buster for a two count. King was ready to end this one when Silas countered by raking his eyes out of the referee’s line of sight. Misery blocked by King, only for the challenger to feel the Last Real Combo-rope-assisted neck breaker combination … that ended in a near fall for Silas!
“The Last Real Man” had the Peegee Waja Plunge in mind, but King had a right hand ready. Young countered the Royal Flush attempt again, only to be swept into the Last Chancery. Young’s nearness to the ropes saved him. Rolling to the floor, Young wanted to lose by count-out if he could. King wasn’t having it; forcing Young to switch plans by kicking the middle rope into King’s groin when he tried to reenter the ring. Peegee Waja Plunge connected for the champ … to give him a near fall!
The fans were going wild as Young argued with the referee. Dey was a clubberin’ in da middle, Tony! Young had the short-arm hook in mind when he sent King into the corner. King caught Young coming in with the Jerry Lynn-like corner sunset flip … for the three count! New champion!

Overall: ROH’s return to Atlanta saw the show move away from the usual three-match formula with the middle portion of the episode focusing on rightfully hyping the upcoming pay-per-view and giving a highlight version of the Women of Honor tournament action unlike the last two weeks. While it’s understandable ROH doesn’t want to make the title tournament be too long-winded and, as seen in this review, has the avenue to show full matches without hampering its TV product, hopefully this is only a precedent set for the opening round matches and the bigger matches of the tournament get both TV and PPV time. As for the full matches seen on this episode both were exceptionally good with the main event really hitting its stride after the commercial break. It’ll be interesting to see how this entire story plays out as Young will definitely be coming from revenge alongside his buddies. While there’s no questioning the loyalty of Young’s friends, the opening match makes one question where Cody’s loyalties lie after he took way too much time to help the victorious Bucks after their stellar match with SoCal Uncensored. Another very good episode of ROH TV this week that not only had a good amount of in-ring action, but also made sure everyone knows why they should be excited about what is to come.
