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 4-6-13: 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 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 …
