It was another solid episode of Ring of Honor television Wednesday, as the program featured some quality wrestling and some good storytelling.
This week’s episode centered around the ROH World Television title match between Jay Lethal and Hanson, in which the story was mostly about Lethal being able to keep up his hectic schedule as a double champion.
Lethal kept his double-champion status in tact on this night by defeating Hanson. After the victory, Ring of Honor foreshadowed Lethal’s future by having his next three title opponents surround the ring.
Bobby Fish, who was a guest commentator during the main event, is Lethal’s next challenger for the TV title. Fish’s tag-team partner, Kyle O’Reilly, will eventually challenge Lethal for his ROH World Heavyweight title, but before that, Lethal must defend that title against Roderick Strong on next’s week’s TV edition.
Strong made his way to the ring as well and attempted to get physical with Lethal, but Lethal opted to fight another day.
The show opened with a brief match between Jay Briscoe and Adam Page after Page spent weeks challenging Briscoe. The match was brief because Page intentionally got himself disqualified by hitting Briscoe with a chair. It looks as if this feud will continue for a little while longer.
Another notable angle from the episode was Dalton Castle answering Silas Young’s challenge.
In case you missed it, Young challenged Castle to a match in which if he won, he would get control of Castle’s boys. Castle upped the ante by adding the stipulation that if he won, Young would have to become one of his boys.
This should get interesting.
Lastly, Caprice Coleman scored a win over Cedric Alexander after Alexander’s plan of using a wrench was thwarted by Moose. After the match, Moose knocked out Alexander with that wrench.
Here are the full match results:
– Jay Briscoe def. Adam Page via disqualification
– Caprice Coleman def. Cedric Alexander
– Cheeseburger def. “Brutal” Bob Evans via count out
– ROH World Television championship – Jay Lethal def. Hanson
