September 7 Ring of Honor Report from Birmingham, AL
From Larry Goodman
In a proving ground instant reward match, ReDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly) defeated C & C Wrestle Factory (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander) and ACH & Tadarious Thomas and Alabama Attitude (Corey Hollis & Mike Posey) in 12:45. Wall-to-wall action with ACH being the human highlight reel. ACH has something that can’t be seen anywhere else. ROH is missing the boat by putting a rocket up his ass as a singles star. Hollis was way over as the hometown hero. Posey got slammed a bazillion times in a row by the champions. Coleman was shook up after freakish accident with the ropes but got back on track fairly quickly. Hollis was way over as the hometown hero. Fish pinned ACH after a brainbuster/kick combo by Red Dragon. Postmatch, fans chanted “that was awesome”.

UNFORGIVABLE BLACKNESS (NEMESIS & SHADOW JACKSON) can out to disagree. FRANKLIN DOVE gave Bailey & Tempers a choice with either Bailey teaming with Tempers to defend or Tempers defending alone against either Shadow or Nemesis which led to SHAUN TEMPERS VS SHADOW JACKSON. Match ended with Tempers in control and Nemesis saving his partner and attacking Tempers for the DQ. As Unforgivable Blackness tried to injure Temper, Jeremy Vain who had been on commentary hit the ring and chased off Blackness.
