ROH TV Coverage: Kushida and Rhodes Dominant

Three solid matches and the continued development of Kenny King and dominance of Cody Rhodes made sure this was another fun episode of ROH TV.


TK O’Ryan w/ Vinny Marseglia and Matt Taven vs. Jonathan Gresham: Lots of high quality back and forth and an agile Ryan who looks healthy after coming back from a lengthy injury. Just when Margeslia and Taven looked to take Gresham out on the outside, Alex Shelley and Chris Sabin hit the ring to even the odds. However, everyone got brought to the back, making this a real one-on-one encounter. Gresham then put on a submission and pin show, but could’t put O’Ryan away. Soon enough, the Kingdom was back in the ring and beating on Gresham to end this match in a DQ. Sabin and Shelley were back soon, making sure this feud is far from over.

ROH World Champion Cody Rhodes vs. Scorpio Sky: This match had a weird start as Sky kissed Rhodes ring, but then went on the offensive. It didn’t last long, however, as Rhodes used the referee as a distraction and won with the Reverse Figure-Four aptly-named The American Nightmare.

The Addiction: Christopher Daniels and Frank Kazarian vs. IGWP Junior Heavyweight Champion Kushida and Jay Lethal: A lengthy encounter that saw Daniels and Kazarian play to the crowd before the match and then dominate for a majority of the match. However, after a slew of finishers, Kushida got the win with the Kimura.
