Christopher Daniels def. ROH World Tag Team Champion Jay Briscoe by Disqualification
I don't know if this was done intentionally, but The Briscoes and SoCal Uncensored will be facing off at All In this coming Saturday, so this served as nice hype for that bout even if Daniels won't be involved and will be taking on Stephen Amell instead. This was a well-wrestled opening match while it lasted between two seasoned Ring of Honor veterans before Mark Briscoe interfered to cause the contest to be thrown out. I assume a win from SoCal on Saturday will earn them a future shot at the tag titles.
Flip Gordon def. Silas Young
These two clashed for the ROH World Television Championship only a few short months ago, but Gordon has grown as a performer (and character) exponentially since then. They produced a very fun, hard-hitting match where the crowd was solidly behind Gordon from start to finish. This was an awesome performance from Gordon that proved he was not only on Young's level but better than him as well via the victory. I'm not sure why Bully Ray attacked Gordon afterward because I thought that rivalry wrapped up a while ago, but apparently not. At least there's the possibility of a Bully and Young alliance as was teased here.
Bullet Club def. The Kingdom to Win the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championsihp
The Young Bucks have held the six-man tag titles before Adam Page as The Hung Bucks, but they recently made up with Cody, which is why they teamed with him here instead. This episode also emanated from his hometown, so he was a huge fan favorite and thus it was the perfect time to do a title change. The actual match was extremely entertaining as expected with both trios working wonderfully together and the crowd being engaged in the action. The story surrounding the finish was that Matt Taven was the legal man yet wasn't pinned, but as of now, the title change still stands. I suppose this plays into the whole "conspiracy" storyline The Kingdom have going on at the moment, so Bullet Club could be stripped of the straps in the near future.
This was a strong edition of ROH TV with an above-average main event (where the six-man tag titles changed hands), an excellent Gordon vs. Young match, and an enjoyable opener where the tag team title feud was furthered. Plus, there were a few terrific video packages for Jay Lethal vs. Jonathan Gresham for the ROH World Championship in two weeks and Kenny King explaining his actions from last week's show. Two thumbs up all around for this episode.
