Welcome back loyal readers to this week’s episode of ROH on HDNet. Last week’s program got back to what ROH does best, top flight tag team action. They’ll have a lot to live up to this week. Let’s get to the action.
Necro Butcher vs. Bobby Beverly
Prince Nana comes out to introduce Necro Butcher. But not before rambling on about how The Embassy is now the elite force in ROH. Personally I couldn’t care less about this stable or this angle. This match is a “Butcher’s Rules” match, meaning Necro just beats the crap out of this poor kid with everything not nailed down for five minutes before getting the win with a Tiger Driver onto a chair.
Jerry Lynn & Delirious Promo
Next we see a video recap of the feud between Jerry Lynn and Delirious against the All Night Express and Austin Aries. And as you know by now, Delirious + Aries + flashback = Me.
Eddie Edwards Ten Minute Hunt
All Night Express Interview
Kyle Durden interviews Austin Aries, Kenny King, and Rhett Titus. They are in the main event tonight against Jerry Lynn, Delirious, and ROH World Champion Tyler Black.
Roderick Strong Interview
Jim Cornette is in the ring and he interviews Roderick Strong. He goes on and on about being screwed over again and again. He then introduces his new “life intervention expert”, Truth Martini, along with the tag team of Raymond & Able who are now called The House of Truth. It looks like we have a new heel stable and a full blown heel turn for Roderick Strong. This should be an interesting development for his character.
The All Night Express & Austin Aries vs. Jerry Lynn & Delirious & ROH World Champion Tyler Black
This was a disappointing episode this week. Two squash matches and an average main event do not a good show make. I do have some hope for next week’s program. The main event is a No Holds Barred Street Fight with Colt Cabana & El Generico vs. Steve Corino & Kevin Steen. I’m hoping for some sick spots in that match.
Vince DeHoratus lives in suburban Philadelphia with his wife and two kids. He has been a life long wrestling fan and he has passed that love onto his son. Though not quite yet “middle aged and crazy”, he is fast approaching it.
