Match-by-match results and television rating of this edition of ROH Television.
Show: ROH Television
Date: August 21, 2016
Location: Philadelphia PA
Commentary: Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness
Reported By: Jacob Gilbert
1. Adam Page def. Jonathan Gresham.
2. Kamaitachi def. Stuka, Jr..
3. Jay Briscoe & Jay White fought to a draw.
1. Adam Page vs. Jonathan Gresham.
Gresham is treated like a "local jobber", billed as hailing from Philly, but the tale of the tape reveals he's from the Atlanta area. Make up your minds, jabronies. The booking of this match ran contrary to the commentary, as Kevin Kelly & Nigel McGuinness tried to put Gresham over as a submission wrestler, but this was more or less a protracted squash to get Page's new gimmick over. Luckily, after the Rite of Passage (Omori Driver), Page didn't try hanging Gresham. That wouldn't have played very well in Atlanta.....
Winner: Adam Page.
Footage is shown of the attacks by Keith Lee & Shane Taylor vs. War Machine. The two teams will have at it next week on an all-tag-team card.
2. Stuka, Jr. vs. Kamaitachi (w/Christopher Daniels).
Stuka, Jr. is the first CMLL wrestler from Mexico to appear in Ring of Honor. Unfortunately, ROH's original Bad Boy, Daniels, made sure the newbie's first night was not a good one. Daniels got involved frequently, and should've been tossed by ref Paul Turner before the match even started. Ref bump wasn't needed here, either, but there was one. Stuka got a visionary pinfall. Kamaitachi stole the mask, then cradled Stuka for a cheap pin.
Cabinet promo. Whoooopeee. They get Dalton Castle & the Boys next week on the undercard to the Addiction-Young Bucks tag title match. Comments from the Bucks, too.
3. Jay Briscoe (w/Mark) vs. Jay White (w/the Motor City Machine Guns).
You would think that this would be a spot where Briscoe would put over the newbie, but....nope. This was better than you think. White kept coming back for more, even kicking out of a Death Valley Driver. However, the TV time limit expired before a decision could be rendered.
Winner: none. Draw.
