Last night Ring of Honor taped television in Dearborn, Michigan in-front of what has been described in many live reports as a packed show, with not even standing room left by the start of the first match. The show as scheduled featured the final match of former ROH World Champion Kevin Steen before he presumably reports to WWE’s development territory, NXT. Here are the results:
ROH World Tag Team Champions reDRagon (Bobby Fish & Kyle O’Reilly) defeat “The Walking Weapon” Josh Alexander and E.G.O Ethan Gabriel Owens with Chasing the Dragon. Alexander who wears headgear during his matches was said to be massively over due to it despite it only being his first ROH match in over a year.
Former NFL offensive lineman Moose defeated enhancement talent Hakim Zane with a spear. Moose was made to look dominant.
Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian defeat The Briscoes, The DECADE (Jimmy Jacobs and Roderick Strong) and War Machine (Hanson and Rowe) to earn a future ROH World Tag Team Championship match when Daniels pinned Strong after a Best Moonsault Ever. Bobby Fish was on commentary. The DECADE taunted Daniels and Kazarian post-match and teased a beatdown but the other teams fended them off.
Cedric Alexander defeated Jay Lethal to win the Golden Gauntlet match to earn a future shot at the ROH World Championship. The match started out with BJ Whitmer vs. Caprice Coleman, Whitmer pinning Coleman after an Exploder Suplex. Matt Taven defeated Whitmer with a Frog Splash. Taven defeated The Romantic Touch with a Climax. Jay Lethal defeated Matt Taven with Lethal Injection.
Adam Cole defeated Rocky Romero with a Figure Four Leglock.
Tommaso Ciampa defeats The DECADE’s young boy Adam Page with a knee to the face following Project Ciampa. Post-match Ciampa says he wants a shot at Michael Elgin for the ROH World Championship but he is cut off by Silas Young. They brawl and Ciampa sends Young to the back.
Michael Elgin defeated one-half of the ROH World Tag Team Champions, Kyle O’Reilly, to retain the ROH World Championship. Was originally scheduled to be Michael Elgin vs. Michael Bennett but Bennett had to pull out due to food poisoining. Michael Elgin came to the ring accompanied by mentor Tyson Dux to keep Bobby Fish at bay. Post-match Tommaso Ciampa, Silas Young, Cedric Alexander, Adam Cole, The Briscoes and War Machine hit the ring and brawl. Adam Cole tries to get the better of Elgin, but Elgin powerbombs Cole to the outside of the ring onto everyone, taking everyone out. Said to be a super hot segment that should look great on TV.
ACH defeats former Adrenaline RUSH tag team partner TaDarius Thomas. Post-match Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer try to “best respect” into Thomas and Adam Page, it looking like the young boys are going to retaliate but instead they don’t.
Tyson Dux defeats NJPW’s Takaaki Wanatabe with a Sliding Clothesline
Kevin Steen defeats Steve Corino with a Package Piledriver in his final Ring of Honor match. Post-match Jimmy Jacobs comes down and the former SCUM trio hug, but it was a set-up as Roderick Strong and BJ Whitmer try to attack, but Steen and Corino fend them off. After the match Kevin Steen gave his farewell speech with balloons, silly string, champagne and streamers. Steen thanks everyone for coming out and says he loves Ring of Honor and he owes so much to everyone there. He thanks a number of people by name including Cary Silkin, The Briscoes, Sinclair Broadcasting, Michael Elgin, Cedric Alexander and Bobby Fish’s fashion sense.
