My Thoughts on WWE Payback 2016

WWE Payback 2016 Results

First, during the Tag Team Tournament Finals Match between The Realest Guys in the Room (Enzo Amore & Colin Cassady) and The Vaudevillains to determine the #1 contenders to the WWE Tag Team Championship, an unfortunate incident happened. Not too long into the match, Enzo Amore’s head bounced off the middle rope and then the back of his head hit the ring apron causing some severe damage, which caused the referee to throw the match out. Enzo ended up having to be stretchered out of the arena and taken to a local medical facility; he was diagnosed with a concussion, but fortunately, all other tests came back negative. I would like to point out that this injury is not a storyline injury, Enzo really got hurt. It is very unfortunate that the match had to end under these circumstances, but it just goes to show that injuries can happen at any given time. We definitely wish Enzo a speedy recovery.

 

There is also the match between Sami Zayn and Kevin Owens. After Owens beat Zayn fair and square, Owens tarnished that by attacking him after the match. Owens then insisted that Byron Saxton get up from the commentators’ table …

ROH TV 5-18-13: Brother vs. Brother?

The show began with ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness coming out and announcing the following guys who will get a future opportunity at the ROH World Championship. Before he can finish, the champion Jay Briscoe comes out and tells Nigel that he doesn’t care who gets put in front of him because he will kick all of their asses. Then, Jay’s brother Mark comes out and tells him how much he has been talking about that ever since he won the championship. Mark then actually issues an open challenge to his brother for the championship, which Jay accepts. Nigel then tells The Briscoes that he will take it under consideration. Will we see two brothers fight for the ROH World Championship? Also, in the main event, Kevin Steen went one-on-one with Adam Cole, who recently turned heel. In the end, thanks to some interference from members of S.C.U.M., Cole was able to defeat Steen to end the program.…

ROH TV 5-11-13: Road Rage Edition of Highlights From Border Wars

This was a special Road Rage edition of ROH TV that showed highlights from the recent  Border Wars iPPV event. One of the highlights was when Michael Elgin and Jay Lethal teamed up to take on S.C.U.M. members Jimmy Jacobs & Cliff Compton (accompanied by S.C.U.M. leader Steve Corino). The stipulation of this match was that if S.C.U.M. wins, then one member of the faction would receive a future ROH World Championship opportunity and Steve Corino would become the new commentary partner of Kevin Kelly, but if Elgin and Lethal win, then Corino would be forced to leave ROH for good. At one point in the match, Lethal had injured his knee and was dubbed unable to continue. It was then a 2-on-1 Handicap Match until Kevin Steen showed up and offered to fill in for Lethal, which ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness agreed to. In the end, it was S.C.U.M. who were victorious, thus earning one member of S.C.U.M. a future championship opportunity and earning Corino the right to join commentary. Great, just we need, more heel commentators. Lastly, it was revealed that ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe had successfully defended against Adam Cole.…

ROH TV 4-20-13: ROH Challenges S.C.U.M.

The show began with former ROH World Champion and leader of S.C.U.M. Kevin Steen coming out to address his loss to Jay Briscoe at SuperCard of Honor VII. Before he could really start, fellow S.C.U.M. member Steve Corino comes out to confront Steen about not returning any of his calls, as well as his recent actions. Steen tells Corino that the reason he wanted to destroy ROH is because he wanted to put it out of its misery because of the way former ROH Match Maker Jim Cornette was running ROH. Steen said that since Cornette is now no longer with ROH, he feels the company is just fine now. Corino continued to remind Steen of S.C.U.M.’s mission to destroy ROH while other members of S.C.U.M. came out. Steen told Corino that he had only intended for it to be Corino, Jimmy Jacobs, and himself as S.C.U.M. to destroy ROH, rather than add more members of S.C.U.M. Steen then told Corino that since he had the utmost respect for him, he decided to go along with Corino’s plan of bringing more members in. Steen then went on to say that he was happy to work with Corino and Jacobs, but …

ROH TV 4-13-13: The Briscoe Brothers Are On A Roll

The show began with ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness inside the ring surrounded by members of the ROH locker room who are faces. I should point out that the week before on ROH TV, MsChif did something that gave people a reason to believe she had potentially turned heel; however, on this edition of ROH TV, she was amongst the faces that were surrounding ringside. Therefore, I’m just gonna say that she’s still a face and that her emotions just got the better of her last week. Anyway, to the point, Nigel introduced the new ROH World Champion Jay Briscoe. During his speech, he basically said that he was honored to be the one that got the championship out of S.C.U.M.’s (Kevin Steen, Steve Corino, Jimmy Jacobs, Rhino, Matt Hardy, Jimmy Rave, Rhett Titus, & Cliff Compton) clutches and that winning the championship for the first time was just icing on the cake. Then, the next #1 contender to the championship, Adam Cole, stepped into the ring to congratulate Jay, but at the same time, he made it clear that he has every intention of taking the championship off his waist. Also, Jay’s younger brother, Mark, won a match to …

Supercard of Honor VII: New ROH World Champion

In one match, it was Tadarius Thomas & ACH taking on QT Marshall and a mystery partner. That mystery partner turned out to be QT’s manager RD Evans. Unfortunately, ROHWrestling.com did not post the outcome of this match. Also, Shelton Benjamin was scheduled to go one-on-one with his former friend and tag team partner Charlie Haas, but for some reason, Haas didn’t show up. Shelton then called for ringside attendant Cheeseburger and told Cheeseburger that he respected him for recently standing up to Charlie Haas despite the fact that Cheeseburger is still in training to become a wrestler. They then get interrupted by the returning trio of Mike Bennett, his new fiancee Maria Kanellis, & his trainer “Brutal” Bob Evans. Bennett then started talking smack to Benjamin and Cheeseburger. Then, Cheeseburger gets tired of listening to Bennett and snatches the mic from him and had some very colorful words towards Bennett & Maria. This led to a match between Benjamin and Bennett with Bennett coming out on top. Also, Michael Elgin beat Jay Lethal to become the #1 contender to the ROH World Championship. Finally, in the main event of the night, ROH World Champion and the leader of S.C.U.M. …

ROH TV 4-6-13: Tag Team Main Event Steals the Show

On this week’s edition of ROH TV, S.C.U.M. was banned from the arena. Also, while Veda Scott was interviewing MsChif about her upcoming Four-Corners Match against “Wrestling Goddess” Athena, the debuting Cherry Bomb, and a mystery participant, Truth Martini, accompanied by one half of The Hoopla Hotties, Scarlett Bordeaux, walks in and offers MsChif to become part of The Hoopla Hotties. MsChif bluntly rejects Truth and it is then revealed that Scarlett is the fourth participant in the four-corners match. MsChif had been undefeated since making her return to ROH, until Athena got the victory in the four-corners match. After the match, Veda Scott attempted to interview MsChif about the match. The first couple of times, there was no comment from MsChif. When Veda made one last attempt, MsChif shocked everybody when she spit green mist into Veda’s face. This was definitely uncharacteristic of MsChif and I’m gonna say that she has turned heel unless proven otherwise. Finally, in the main event, it was ROH Tag Team Champions reDRagon defending against The Forever Hooligans. It was back-and-forth action between the two teams, but in the end, reDRagon ended up getting the victory and retaining their championships to end the program.…

ROH TV 3-30-13: S.C.U.M. Dominates

On this week’s edition of ROH TV, all the matches were ROH vs. S.C.U.M. The first match was between C & C and S.C.U.M. members Rhett Titus & Cliff Compton. Thanks to other members of S.C.U.M., Titus & Compton got the victory. The next match was between Mike Mondo and S.C.U.M. member Jimmy Jacobs. Jacobs got the victory by hooking Mondo’s trunks for extra leverage. In th main event, it was Jay Lethal, Michael Elgin, and BJ Whitmer vs. S.C.U.M. members Steve Corino, RHINO, and Matt Hardy. In this match, there was no tagging in and out and there were no count-outs or disqualifications. S.C.U.M. took full advantage of this when other S.C.U.M. members came out and handcuffed Lethal and Elgin to the ring ropes, which left Whitmer to fend for himself. Despite a valiant effort, the numbers game was just too much to overcome and S.C.U.M. got the victory. After the match was over, Lethal and Elgin got uncuffed and it was an all out brawl between the ROH locker room and S.C.U.M. to end the show. This night may have gone to S.C.U.M., but based on the brawl that ended this week’s edition of the show, this tells …

ROH TV 3-16-13 Review

The show began with ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness in the ring surrounded by members of the ROH locker room (both faces and heels). Nigel addressed how S.C.U.M. declared war on ROH at the 11th Anniversary Event. Nigel said that S.C.U.M. can have a war. He said that ROH Management had banned S.C.U.M. from the arena this week for the sake of others’ safety. Regardless, Nigel still intends to go to war with S.C.U.M. because he and other members of the ROH locker room want to restore honor in ROH. Therefore, Nigel intends to let S.C.U.M. into the building next week even if it means putting his job on the line. Nigel said that one of the best ways to restore honor is by getting the ROH World Championship off the waist of the leader of S.C.U.M., Kevin Steen. Nigel named some contenders for the championship and those contenders would be getting their opportunity at the championship on those particular dates as long as Kevin Steen still holds the championship by the time that date comes around. The contenders that were named were Jay Briscoe, Mark Briscoe, BJ Whitmer, Adam Cole and Nigel put together a #1 contenders’ match between …

ROH 11th Anniversary Event Review

At the ROH 11th Anniversary Event, 2 of the 3 championships changed hands and S.C.U.M. stood tall at the end of the event. Matt Taven beat Adam Cole (with an assist from Truth Martini) to become the 7th ROH Television Champion. redDRagon beat The Briscoes to become the 36th ROH Tag Team Champions. After Kevin Steen beat Jay Lethal to retain the ROH World Championship, the other members of S.C.U.M. hit the ring to attack and chaos ensued. The Briscoes and C & C came out to help Lethal, but were then thwarted by the ROH return of Jimmy Rave, who then aligned himself with S.C.U.M. Then, BJ Whitmer and Rhett Titus came out to fend off S.C.U.M. only for Titus to turn on Whitmer and align with S.C.U.M. as well, thus turning Titus heel (bad guy). Michael Elgin then came out to fend off S.C.U.M., but was then thwarted by the ROH debut of current TNA Developmental Superstar Cliff Compton, who also aligned himself with S.C.U.M. Adam Cole then came out to fend off S.C.U.M., but was then thwarted by Matt Hardy, who (you guessed it) also aligned himself with S.C.U.M. After S.C.U.M. disposed of everybody, Steve Corino declared …
