Ring of Honor Coverage: Fear the Fish

How do you have a show and not feature any of your promotion’s champions? Although the IWGP Tag Team Champions were featured, this week’s Ring of Honor was the same old song- good in-ring action but not nearly enough storyline development, no cotext and even more pre-taped nonsense. At this point, the show is roughly three weeks behind reality, making it feel like ROH has thrown house show footage together and slapped on some commentary.

At this point, if you don’t have the desire to give fans something really special, why would anyone, besides the most dedicated ROH faithful, watch it?

Away from the drama between The Decade and Steve Corino, there wasn’t much to get excited about.


IWGP Tag Team Champions Matt Taven and Michael Bennett with Maria Kanellis vs. Corey Hollis & Jonathan Gresham: Although Hollis and Gresham fought hard and hot some offense, this was a squash match that saw Taven and Bennett win with the Hail Mary Stuff Piledriver on Hollis.

Six-Man Mayhem: Caprice Coleman vs. Cheeseburger vs. Brutal Bob Evans vs. Moose vs. Moose w/ Stokely Hathaway vs. Silas Young vs. Dalton Castle w/ His Boys: Moose got the win with the Spear on Evans after a wild and crazy high-impact offense-filled match.

ACH vs. Bobby Fish: A high-flying and counter-filled extravaganza that saw Fish get the win with the Super Falcon Arrow.
