  • Share

The following are the results for the Ring of Honor live event from Charlotte, North Carolina, and were written courtesy of Bruce Buchanan and The Wrestling Observer:

1. Kaleb Conley b. Ryan Bishop in a pre-show match.

2. The Bravado Brothers b. Adam Cole & Kyle O’Reilly. All four worked hard and O’Reilly was particularly impressive.

3. Colt Cabana b. Grizzly Redwood. A highly entertaining comedy match. Unlike when the WWE attempts comedy, Cabana actually is funny.

4. Rhett Titus b. Caprice Coleman. Titus insulted the crowd before the match, while Coleman gave a good babyface promo, saying he was in his hometown trying to win a job with ROH. Good match, and the crowd chanted “Please come back!” for Alexander. I hope he gets the chance.

5. “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett b. Cedric Alexander. Just a quick win for Bennett.

6. Christopher Daniels b. Claudio Castagnoli (w/ Sara Del Ray & Shane Hagadorn) to keep the ROH TV Title. Personally, I thought this was the best match of the night. The finish saw Daniels slip on the BME and land awkwardly. It looked like he could’ve been hurt, but he appeared to be okay. He hit the angel’s wings and a second BME for the pin.

7. Steve Corino & Andy “Right Leg” Ridge b. Alabama Attitude (Mike Posey & Corey Hollis). The match was scheduled for Corino vs. Ridge, but Corino gave an fantastic babyface promo, saying he had done plenty of bad things, but those actions cost Kevin Steen his career. He promised to change his ways, and said he wanted to team with Ridge, not fight him. Ridge was wary, but Corino wrestled as a babyface throughout.

8. Davey Richards b. Chris Hero (w/ Sara Del Ray & Shane Hagadorn. Excellent, long match. They traded hard strikes throughout. Hero tried to use the loaded elbow pad, but ref Todd Sinclair caught him. Davey then slapped on a cross armbreaker for the submission.

9. El Generico won a four-way match over Kenny King, Mark Briscoe and Homicide when Generico pinned King. Good, fast-paced match. After the match, Homicide and Generico both indicated they were going for the ROH Title. Homicide jumped Generico, laid him out with the gringo killer and buried him under a Puerto Rico flag. Generico sold big and had to be helped to the back. It sure seemed like the start of new feud.

10. Roderick Strong b. Jay Briscoe to keep the ROH World Title. The crowd was tired early (it was a 3 1/2 hour show), but they woke up when Strong & Briscoe brawled on the floor. Jay absolutely bled buckets – blood was just pouring off of his head. The crowd really got into it at this point, with the story being that Jay was badly wounded, but wouldn’t quit. He gave Strong a Jay driller through the ringside table. After numerous near falls, Strong finally got the win with a tiger bomb (or Gibson driver in ROH).

They announced a return date for July 9th.
