ROH TV: July 13-14th edition AND The ROH Title Tournament Brackets

Show opens with hype for the main event.  Kevin Kelly confirms that Steen has been added to team ROH for Steel Cage Warefare in 2-weeks.  Steve Corino explains that he is royally pissed about the situation.  With that set it's time for the opening contest.




Grudge Match: "Sicilian Psychopath" Tommaso Ciampa VS "God's Gift" QT Marshall
Story here of course is that RD Evans stabbed Ciampa in the back and made QT his new client after Ciampa was injured in a match with Jay Lethal last August.  A side note on Ciampa, Someone asked me to explain what quality made him stand out from the rest of the roster as a star, and the answer is intensity.  Brace yourselves because some MAJOR hyperbole is coming soon: Ciampa's intensity is, dare I say it, Austin-esq.  I'm not saying something absurd like Tomaso Ciampa's the next Austin (I don't even know that there WILL be a "Next Austin") but when he gets into the zone he exudes the same sense of danger Stone Cold did in '97.   No code of honor as Ciampa just flips QT off, much to the crowds approval.  QT dives for Ciampa's bad knee but he just jams his GOOD knee into Marshall's face to score a 2.999 count.  I really thought that was the finish for 2.999 seconds.  Marshall rolls outside and Ciampa gives chase.  Marshall gets speared right through the barricade.  Ciampa whips QT off the turnbuckle and onto another section of barricade.  Ciampa starts hitting QT with incredibly stiff overhand chops and then smacks him around with an even stiffer slap.  Everyone's favorite psychopath beats Marshall back into the ring and gets into position to deliver his trademark running knees in the corner.  He gets one, but RD Evans involves himself to stop Ciampa's onslaught.  Ciampa doesn't appreciate the barrister's concern for his client and pulls him into the ring.  He sits Evans in the corner and wants to give HIM running knees but Marshall clips him with a clothesline on his way by to score his first offensive move of the contest.  Marshall tries to give Ciampa a Kryptonite Krunch off the top rope, but he fights out. QT has to settle for simply drop kicking him off the turnbuckle instead.  Tomaso falls back and his Knee is hung on the top rope.  The ref unties Ciampa and he falls to the apron, clutching his knee and writhing in pain.  Marshall starts the beat down as we fade to commercial.

When we come back both guys are on the floor and the concrete floor has been reveled.  Well fuck that was an eventful commercial break.  Back in the ring Ciampa tries fighting back with his infinitely superior skills, but he cant overcome his re-injured knee.  QT pushes Tommaso into the corner then gives him a kneebreaker.  Marshall's offense stays simple but effective with a diving tackle to the knee.  This is brilliant booking to someone's strengths, Marshall's overly simple (boring) offense actually works to tell the story of the match.  Marshall takes Ciampa outside and sets up a chair.  He drops his knee over the chair with a bodyslam.  Back in and it's a 2-count for God's Gift.  QT puts on the Indian Deathlock and somewhere Triple H started MARKING THE FUCK OUT!!!  Ciampa bites Marshall's face to get loose.  They trade forearms in the middle of the ring with Ciampa getting the upper hand by continuing to stiff the shit our of QT Marshall.  It's for not however as QT shows his heart and kicks Ciampa's leg right out of his leg.  Marshall runs the ropes but Ciampa fights up to deliver a clothesline and a back body drop, but he can't capitalize because his knee gives out.  QT leans on the ropes to get up, and Ciampa hops over on one leg to Marshall, jumps on that one leg, then Knees him in the face with that same leg to send QT over the top and on to the apron! Ciampa wants the Kryptonite Crunch on the apron, but QT escapes and puts Ciampa on the top rope.  Ciampa wants none of what QT is selling and launches him down to the floor back first on the exposed concrete.  Marshall gets up only to find an uncharacteristic FLYING CIAMPA which wipes him out.  Ciampa further injures his knee on the move.  Back from the dead Prince Nana appears in the aisleway!  Evans rolls his man back in at 15 and wants Ciampa to be counted out from his own dive.  Match continues with him just barely rolling in at 19.  Ciampa is clearly hurt as QT just keeps beating him down.  Ciampa flips the bird and Marshall gets pissed, stomping Ciampa down then stopping to gloat with his own middle finger.  Big mistake, Ciampa forces himself up and finally hits the Krypotonite Krunch--It only gets 2.  Project Ciampa looks to finish, but RD Evans runs in again.  Tommaso looks for project Ciampa on the barrister instead but he slips out and runs for the back...where he comes face to face with the man he stole the embassy from in the first place.  Evans does what every dumb shit cowardly heel does in this situation and runs right back into the ring for Project Ciampa.  Marshall pounces immediately and rolls Ciampa up for a near fall, then locks on the stretch muffler (Knee bar). After a tense few moments Ciampa cradles into a small package for 2.  As QT was standing up from the kickout Ciampa puts him back unto his knees with yet another knee strike to the face.  Marshall is out when Ciampa signals for the end, pulling the pad on his bad knee down and smashing his knee brace into Marshall's face for the 3-count. *** Without a doubt the best match of Marshall's ROH career and an awesome performance by Ciampa.  They actually convinced me Marshall might win  towards the end, which is completely on Ciampa's selling the knee.  This match really illustrated why Ciampa reminds me of  '97 Austin, A bad ass determinater who won't stop fighting till you kill him, If ROH keeps booking him like this, he might just end up the most over guy in the company.

Inside ROH tells us nothing we don't already know, airing the same hype for Steel Cage Warfare and Matt Hardy's title shot for those who missed last week.

"The Prodigy Mike Bennett VS Nick Merriman
ROH debut for Merriman.  The code of honor is adhered to, but Bennett pulls Merriman in for the Box Office Smash on the handshake.  Bennett picks the kid back up and hits a TKO for the 3-count in what I believe is the shortest match in ROH TV history.  I'm not rating this since it was just set up for Bennett's promo.

Bennett references the rumors of him leaving for greener pastures asking the crowd "Should I stay, or Should I go?"  He asks if he should "collect a paycheck in Connecticut".  He has Brutal Bob present an ROH contract and reminds the crowd that they need him more then he needs them.  ROH fans wouldn't know a star if it bit them on the ass--they boo a man like him but cheer for a guy like Cheeseburger. (the fact the guy is still called that with Charlie Hass out of the company is astounding, almost as astounding as the fact that it somehow got over and this 110-pound kid is getting some of the best reactions at the live events)  He calls Cheeseburger into the ring and gives him the contract, telling him he should be the next ROH star.  Cheeseburger starts reading it, when Bennett super-kicks him in the face!  Bennett should never ever use the super-kick, he looks as awkward as HHH looks when he tries to hit SCM in tribute to HBK.  Bennett starts the hellish beat-down of evil when Brutal Bob pulls him off!  Bob tries telling his student to control himself but gets a Box Office Smash for his trouble.  Bennett announces that he is no longer Bob's prodigy...the prodigy is dead.  As he leaves Corino claims to see what the offer on the contract is.  "Kevin Kelly, It's like if we added what you are paid and I'm paid together, then multiplied that by two-and we're not even close.  That was almost Matt Hardy Money!!!"

This was good, for whatever reason people like chanting cheeseburger, and Bob got a huge babyface reaction for saving him.  If this is leading where I think it is, with Bob wanting to teach his former student a lesson in humility by training the underdog lightweight to overcome him then I'm all in favor of this.  It's a story that's as old as dirt, but it's one of those timeless tales that will always pop the crowd when the arrogant prick gets his comeuppance.

Jay Briscoe is out to address Matt Hardy.  He confirms that he's not to injured to wrestle "next week" and that if Matt wants the belt, he'll have to pry it from Jay's cold, dead hands.  He says he'll do his talking in the ring and that's all he has to say and walks out.  This didn't serve that much of a purpose but it was super short and inoffensive.

ROH Tag Team Titles: C&C Wrestle Factory VS reDRagon (c)     
Kelly explains that the capitalization of the DR is an obvious shot at Davey Richards.  Bullshit that's obvious, I thought it was just some hipster "we liked capitals in the middle of words before it was cool" nonsense to go with the characters they've got going.  I actually like the reasoning I just don't know how they expected anyone to actually pick up on that without being told!  Kyle O'Reilly and Cedric Alexander in to Start. Some chain wrestling Alexander getting the advantage.  Cedric and Caprice bounce O'Reilly back and forth with inverted atomic drops and punches. Tag to Coleman.  O'Reilly creates some space and tags in Fish,but he has no more luck then his partner and suffers a hip toss and a pair of bionic elbows.  there's a racist joke about stealing from the American dream in there somewhere.  Leaping leg drop from Coleman misses, but so does Fish's counter kick so Coleman gets an O'Connor roll for 2.  Coleman hits a Fame-Ass-er for 2, then tags in Cedric Alexander who comes in with a senton.  Alexander throws forearms and slams Fish down.  O'Reilly tries to dive in with an Axe Handle but gets hit in the midsection on the way down as the champs just can't get anything going.  reDRagon attempts a double suplex but Coleman catches his partner and sets him down softly.  What an awesomely simple counter.  Double dropkick puts Fish in the corner and O'Reilly on the floor.  Coleman scores a running back elbow on Fish and uses the momentum to flip right over the top rope and land a moonsault on O'Reilly.  Real cool spot.  Fish is sent to the outside by Alexander and Caprice makes a TERRIBLE attempts to 619 off the turnbuckle and hit Fish.  fortunately for Coleman, even though his feet don't come close to hitting Fish, the force of the air sends him flying back into the barricade!  Alexander wipes out both his opponents with a suicide dive and we take a break

Back with the American Wolves out to watch and C&C beating Fish down in their corner.  It's rare you see the heels ineptly struggling to make tags.  Fish rakes the eyes and tags in Kyle O'Reilly, who runs right into a back body drop from Coleman.  Bodyslam and leaping legdrop get a 2 count for Coleman.  Tag in Cedric, and they double Irish-whip O'Reilly into the corner.  Caprice scores charging in, then clotheslines Fish right off the apron.  Cedric gets nothing but boot when he charges in O'Reilly back body drops Caprice to the floor.  O'Reilly ties Alexander up and Bobby Fish sweeps his leg from the outside to give the champions control for the first time in the match,  Fish forces Coleman onto a chair against the corner of the barricade, and then O'Reilly runs full tilt down the apron to missile dropkick him at max velocity.  Fish heads in to deal with Alexander but he's put back out on the floor.  Dive by Alexander misses but he lands on his feet, he ducks Fish's clothesline but gets hit by O'Reilly's.  Corino provokes the Wolves into coming down the ramp and Richards grabs a hold of him.  Titus and Compton come out and the brawl is on outside the ring.  Adrenaline Rush run out and join the brawl shortly thereafter.  Way to much going on to follow it all.  Back in the ring O'Reilly locks a cross-arm breaker on Alexander, when Coleman re-enters the match out of nowhere, using his mastery over the wind to fly through the air and connect a diving headbutt on O'Reilly.  Fish comes in hits a Falcon Arrow on Coleman, then he takes turns with O'Reilly hitting a variety of strikes on Alexander.  Fish gets a back suplex and O'Reilly makes the cover.  Cedric slides away and gives Caprice the hot tag.  He takes out O'Reilly and boots Fish into a Cedric Alexander enzugiri.  Fish up in fireman's carry position; Cedric double stomps on the back of his head then lays down with his knees up so Coleman can drop Fish on them.  O'Reilly breaks the pin up at 2.  Fish is sent over the top into the massive brawl outside which now includes six wrestlers and 6-12 security guys.  Alexander dives to take out the entire damn crowd EXCEPT Fish who snuck out through the brawl.  Back in the ring Caprice is setting up the super hurricanranna, but Fish jumps up and holds O'Reilly down to block the move.  Kyle leaps to land a tornado DDT, rolls through into brainbuster position, and Chasing the Dragon gets a three count and the titles are retained.  The brawl outside spills into the ring now and we go off the air to chaos.  **1/2  Good match, but nothing we haven't seen from the Perennial challengers in C&C either.

Great show this week, 2 good matches and a nice angle for Bennett make it a thumbs up show.  Keep your eye on Tommaso Ciampa--whatever "it": is, he's got it.

  1. Is Jay Briscoe still with the company? I'd heard they didn't renew the Briscoe Brother's contracts.

    ReplyDelete
  2. From what I've gathered, Jay and Mark aren't under contract with ROH anymore and whenever they wrestle it will be on a per-show deal. And I still think the company knew about their contract situation before they put the title on Jay and stripping him was just part of the tournament storyline. I'm thinking Jay will challenge whomever is ROH champ at Final Battle because the company has put non-contract guys in FB main events before i.e. El Generico last year. As to who will win the tournament? I thinking Elgin or Adam Cole. I'm hoping for Elgin because I don't want another Tyler Black/Davey Richards situation where they drag it out too long.

  3. What you heard was the internet over reacting to unsubstantiated rumours

    ReplyDelete
  4. Yes, to all of this

    ReplyDelete
  5. Maybe Cole winning is the best option if he fully turns heel and joins Corino and Hardy. 3 man heel groups are working out pretty well in WWE right now, ROH might as well try their own.

    I'll give Marshall credit, he still sucks, but his bumping in that match was *****.


    I wish Bennett would just sign with WWE already.


    Agree with you on all the predictions except the last one, I think Strong goes over. Cole and Elgin will be the final, not yet sure who wins but if I had to pick one it's probably Cole, just because he can work the mic.

    ReplyDelete
  7. Marshall has a lot of really decent basics, but he just doesn't do ANYTHING beyond that to be worth a thing. Just generic really.

    ReplyDelete
  8. El Generico II gimmick?

    ReplyDelete
  9. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 5:18 PM

    That's the thing, there's nothing he's really bad at (though the fact that I've never heard him talk makes me think he's none too good on the mic, and you have to be pretty terrible if even fucking ROH won't let you talk), but there's absolutely nothing he does WELL, either. I'm willing to bet that any one of us can go through basic wrestling training and put on a match as good as Marshall can, and probably draw better heat too. Hell, I KNOW I can play a better heel


    BTW, it appears someone either hates Kyle or ROH so much that they're downvoting every post. It's Summer, go outside or something...

  10. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 5:30 PM

    I wasn't buying it at first, but the fact that Mark is in this tourney makes me think that yes, they had this planned out all along. And it seems to be working, there's quite a bit of buzz about the tournament.

    ReplyDelete
  11. I mean really, ROH would not be so stupid as to put their World title on someone without knowing they were locked under contract. Yes I know about Kenny King but that was a bit different.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Besides the fact that the first El Generico could wrestle QT Marshall's boot and have a better match that QT could, sure.

    ReplyDelete
  13. The sequel is always less than the original.

    ReplyDelete
  14. And there should be, we are almost certainly getting Steen-Elgin 2 out of this!!!

    ReplyDelete
  15. I think SCUM is done...2 weeks till SCW on TV and NONE of the members are in the tournament. I don't know what will happen on TV cause I ignore all spoilers but that blow-off is coming

    ReplyDelete
  16. Should've just done a "Royal Rumble" type match for the vacant title.

    ReplyDelete
  17. No Way, Tournaments are awesome!

    ReplyDelete
  18. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 7:10 PM

    Absolutely not.

    ReplyDelete
  19. As awesome as tournaments are, this one is OVERLY predictable. They should've jumbled up the first round better.

    ReplyDelete
  20. It's clear the company agrees about Marshall, because Best in the World was right there and they paid off Ciampa's vengeance angle on TV--not a sign of faith in QT

    I'm shocked no one has started flaming me for the Austin comparison

    ReplyDelete
  21. Kevin Steen beating Jay Briscoe at Super Card of Honor 7 was "too predictable" as well...remember how that turned out

    ReplyDelete
  22. Yeah horribly. Jay has had the least memorable title reign in ROH history with the company circling the toilet. Should've kept the title on Steen and and Hardy take it from him.

    ReplyDelete
  23. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 7:16 PM

    Is that lineup (I've seen it other places) showing how the tournament is seeded, or just a random list of the first round matches? As in, does Cole face the winner of Lethal/Dutt if (when) he wins?

    ReplyDelete
  24. You had me until make Hardy champion.
    Circling the toilet is a little strong, Fuck TNA makes stupider booking decisions daily and they're still kicking

    ReplyDelete
  25. TNA hasn't made a dumb booking decision outside of the Aces and 8's garbage in a couple of years. ROH to me just seems like a shadow of what it used to be before the TV deals.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 7:18 PM

    Me too, I felt you went a little overboard with it myself. But I see what you mean, the guy definitely has that look.

    Gotcha, thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  29. He doesn't have the mic skills or the charisma, but that's not an insult to Ciampa, there's maybe 5 guys in history with Austin's mic skills and Charisma. I think Ciampa is lower in the pecking order then Adam Cole and Micheal Elgin right now--but I truly believe he has the highest ceiling of the three.

    ReplyDelete
  30. ROH is better now then when they signed the TV deal, but yeah talent raids have left the company in a lesser postion then they were a few years ago

    "TNA hasn't made a dumb booking decision outside of the Aces and 8's garbage in a couple of years." What the Fuck show have you been watching. Jeff Hardy says hello?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Hardy held the belt for almost a year in his TNA career, ratings didn't change. Yeah he sells merchandise, but he sells it with or without the belt.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Exactly?...TNA is still a mess, and if you think aces and 8's was the only fuck up in their booking you missed 80% of bound for glory, the Matt Morgan vs Hogan bullshit, Chavo Guerrero existing,Austin Aries getting cut off at the knees for a Hardy title reign, Gut Check being pointless, Brooke Hogan talking, and everything else they do to sabotage themselves

    ReplyDelete
  33. Yo down voter, bro, do you even lift. Im a bad MOFO! Fight me IRL?


    Sorry about that, just felt the need to lower myself to the level of someone who gets their jollies from anonymously down voting everyone in hopes they'll reveal themselves.

  34. I wish I was as cool as him!

    Good review man, that opener sounds pretty damn good.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Meh, it's a wrestling site, you're bound to get at least a few folks with personality disorders and the like. Comes with the territory.

  36. I saw that there were 35(!) comments on an ROH review and had to see what the deal was. Probably should've realized it was 3 guys posting 10 times apiece. Carry on.

  38. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 9:21 PM

    Hey, the author responds to comments directed at something he wrote... that's some bullshit! And the 3 or 4 resident ROH fans like to talk about ROH in a review of a ROH show! I'm fucking SHOCKED! Like, seriously, I don't know how I'm going to recover from my mind being blown like that.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 9:28 PM

    It was. I think Kyle is pushing Ciampa a bit too hard (though I will say I was guilty of doing the same thing with Adam Cole), but the match was really good. *** is what I'd give it too, and it was easily Marshall's best match so far.

    ReplyDelete
  40. You're doing a good job with these man. Its like that movie Rock Star, where the singer is replaced by a fanand then that fan is replaced by another fan. In this scenario I'm the gay Rob Halford cipher.

    I agree on Ciampa too. The guy is just insane. Austin might draw flames, as a comparison, but yknow who he realy reminds me of? Killer Kowalski. Same steely eyed sadist gimmick, and bith would hit the ring and quickly go about destroying their opponents with little flash. The cool thing is, Ciampa's really well rounded; I've seen him work as a babyface doing comedy spots.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 9:34 PM

    I got your back, homie. Anyone has beef, we'll meet them at Clifton Hill, and I can guarantee that will be the last trip they ever make.

  42. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 9:36 PM

    Now I have to see Rock Star, just to see which character I am in this scenario. Who plays "me"?

    ReplyDelete
  43. Amsterdam_Adam_CurryJuly 17, 2013 at 9:47 PM

    I think Cole is the better prospect, but Ciampa would probably be #2. Problem is that that his knees are damn near shot and he still insists on using the knees as a focal point of his offense. Unless he changes his moveset (an Austin-like moveset would work for him, actually) he's going to be shot within a couple years.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Remember: He's not a troll. Just a cunt, that's all.

    ReplyDelete
  46. I swallowed the Tomasso kool-aid when I saw the match where he blew out his knee in the first fall of a 2/3 falls match and manned the fuck up and still managed to put on a decent match. I also like that ROH is trying to make him special by giving him a fancy entrance, which is something they don't do often.

    ReplyDelete
  47. I'm just here for the mandatory two downvotes.

    ReplyDelete
  48. The Knee strikes are probably fine, it's worked stuff, It's only Project Ciampa that will fuck him up real bad. The move is way too cool for me to advocate it's complete elimination, I think he should turn it into a Burning Hammer type deal where he only uses it maybe once a year when he's exhausted every other maneuver in his arsenal

    ReplyDelete
  49. That was Boiling Point 2012,as it happens that was also the best match on the show, which is really impressive considering HE'D BLOWN HIS FUCKING KNEE OUT

  54. Yeah, Cole is gonna get a lot less love with me doing these, Off the top of my head I like Elgin, Steen, Ciampa, and Edwards (but not Richards) better. I do really like Cole, but I still haven't seen anything that tells me he's above TV title level yet.

  57. This week's Sign of the Apocalypse: "God Punishment" has a great match. It was all Tommasso, but still. (And Nana's back? Does Tommasso need a mouthpiece? Hell, after all the SCUM crap, does ROH really need a stable?) Going a little overboard with the Austin comparisons, but yeah, dude is scary intense. Only way things could've been any better is if Tommasso had come back out during the Bennett segment and kneed everyone involved in the face. Everyone. Including Maria and the poor dude The Prodigette squashed. (Not Cheeseburger, the other guy.)


    The main I don't wanna talk about. Iesha and Shaniqua vs. Hipster DoRkchops. Yay. And they're bringing back the Young Twerps at some point. Double yay. Can we put the tag belts on someone I give 1/8th of one shit about? London and Kendrick? The Forever Hooligans? Give Dem Boys a 9th reign, bring the Headbangers back, SOMETHING.

    ReplyDelete
  58. HEY, Hipster DoRkchops are awesome!


    I don't think Nana is there for Ciampa, He dumped him in favor of RD Evans way back when anyway, It's a whole new embassy! (I like the Prince so I'm cool with this)

  61. You get to be Mark Wahlberg, so you're sort of the star of the movie, and a stand in for Tim "Ripper" Owens.

    ReplyDelete
  62. yeah seriously. He wrestled Cheech at a show I saw once and was doing a great "babyface toying with a lesser opponent" thing. He did a cool spot where he caught Cheech's kick, swung it over to the ref so the ref was holding Cheech's foot, and then enziguried him. And then Cheech won. Although sadly not with the Go To Cheech.
