A simple episode of Ring of Honor this week aided with the star power of some NJPW stars along with a strong main event between Bullet Club Member Hangman Page and recently ousted member Adam Cole
The show began with Will Ferrara & Cheeseburger taking on the IWGP Heavyweight Tag Team Champions War Machine. Ferrara and Cheeseburger are always fun and one could argue War Machine are the best team in the world right now. A fun opening match to the show, in which afterwards War Machine called out the Young Bucks for a match that everyone wants to see.
We had video packages promoting ROH Best in the World which will be main evented by the Almighty Christopher Daniels defending his Ring of Honor World Championship against the American Nightmare Cody Rhodes. This has the potential to be one of the biggest feuds in recent ROH history
Next saw Los Ingobernables de Japon (Bushi, Evil, Sanada & Naito) defeating the team of Dalton Castle, The Briscoes and Bully Ray. The eight men provided a fantastic match with a great mixture of comedy and action. The finish came with Jay Briscoe being rolled up for the pin by Naito after Briscoe was arguing with Dalton Castle over the boys. The aftermath of the match saw the Briscoe’s furious with the Boys, hinting at a potential feud. Unsure how that would go as Dalton Castle is beyond over at this point with the ROH crowd.
The Main Event saw Hangman Page defeating former Bullet Club member Adam Cole. The two men put on a very good match, Adam Cole hit a superkick into an explorer suplex, Page hit a standing shooting star press and then a brutal slingshot lariat for a near fall. Both men tease their finishers, before Page tries for the Last Rites on the apron, before Cole counters, superkicks Page and hits a Canadian destroyer onto the floor, Cole went for another Canadian Destroyer but Page countered into the Last Rites which was kicked out of. The finish came when Page hit another brutal lariat before hitting a second Last Rites for the victory. A very good match, and it will be interesting to see what more interactions Adam Cole has with the Bullet Club.
