ROH TV 4-27-13: ROH World Championship Match Heats Up

The show began with S.C.U.M. members Steve Corino, Jimmy Jacobs, Cliff Compton, & Rhett Titus coming out and issuing an open challenge to ROH Match Maker Nigel McGuinness to send out three of ROH’s best to face Jacobs, Compton, & Titus in a Six-Man Tag Team Match. The three men to accept the challenge were BJ Whitmer and C & C (Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander). In the end, it was S.C.U.M. that emerged victorious. Also, Nigel McGuinness hosted the official contract signing for the ROH World Championship Match between Champion Jay Briscoe and Challenger Adam Cole at the upcoming Internet-Pay-Per-View Event Border Wars. After both men had signed the contract and shook hands, S.C.U.M. members Steve Corino, Matt Hardy, & Rhino came out and interrupted. Jay Briscoe then issued an open challenge for a tag team match between himself and Adam Cole against Matt Hardy & Rhino. Nigel agreed to make the match happen, so it was official. At one point during the match, just as Briscoe was about to go for the finish, Cole tags himself into the match. Then, when chaos ensued, just when Rhino attempts to hit his signature move, the Gore, on Cole, he side-steps …

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 …

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 …
