La Faccion Ingobernable Interrupted Villain Enterprises
(From my Final Battle Fallout review...) All of Villain Enterprises was out in the ring to celebrate PCO's ROH World Championship victory from Final Battle and Marty Scurll even teased his future being in doubt. They were then interrupted on the big screen by the trio of Rush, Kenny King and Dragon Lee, who are apparently calling themselves La Faccion Ingobernable. I realize Rush and Lee are legitimately brothers, but King's involvement feels forced. The crowd sat on their hands for the reveal of his new faction. I'm not sure why Rush needs his own stable aside from the inevitable multi-man tag team match with La Faccion Ingobernable and Villain Enterprises. It was announced later on that PCO will defend his newly won ROH World Championship in a rematch against Rush at Saturday at Center Stage next month.
Dak Draper def. Shaheem Ali
This match was exclusive to this edition of ROH TV. Draper won the Top Prospect Tournament many months ago, and while he teased facing Shane Taylor for the ROH World Television Championship late last year, it's going to have to be Dragon Lee now that he's the champion coming out of Final Battle. This was a perfectly fine match that had virtually zero crowd heat. Draper winning was the right call as he has a TV title shot coming up in the near future, while Coast to Coast continues to flounder.
ROH World Champion and ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion PCO and ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champion Marty Scurll def. Dan Maff and Jeff Cobb
(From my Final Battle Fallout review...) Maff and Cobb are fresh off their hotly-contested clash at Final Battle and made for a terrific team here. I'm almost afraid of their chemistry being too strong because I prefer Cobb in singles competition over him being slotted in the tag team ranks at the moment. This was an excellent, all-action main event with a slightly surprising outcome. Not only did Villain Enterprises win, it was Scurll who picked up the victory for his team. Considering this didn't seem like a sendoff for him (in addition to how he's still one-third of the Six-Man World Tag Team Champions), it looks like he'll be sticking around in Ring of Honor for a little while longer, assuming he's on his way out. He very well could have re-signed, but nothing is official as of now.
It took over three weeks, but we're finally getting footage from the Final Battle Fallout that was taped in mid-December. In this case, I understand why because of the holidays and Best of 2019 shows airing in place of original episodes. If you already watched Final Battle Fallout, then there really isn't anything you need to see on this episode. La Faccion Ingobernable debuted, the main event was entertaining and Draper vs. Ali was decent, so all in all, it was a solid edition of ROH TV.
