ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Dalton Castle and The Boys def. Flip Gordon and Coast to Coast (Non-title)
Gordon and Coast to Coast aren't a regular trio in Ring of Honor, but I would have no problem with them becoming one because they work wonderfully together. Meanwhile, Castle and The Boys are perfectly cast as the champs right now and it's great to see them finally getting a chance to shine. This was a very fun matchup with everyone involved looking good. I'd love to see Gordon pushed more prominently in the future.
Matt Taven def. Ultimo Guerrero
Despite being 45-years-old, Guerrero can still very much go in the ring and I was pleasantly surprised by his performance in this match, as well as Taven's. It sucks that TK O'Ryan got injured back in March, but Taven has really come into his own in singles competition since then. They were given more time than I figured they would be and they made the most of it by contesting an enjoyable matchup.
The Motor City Machine Guns def. War Machine
I couldn't believe it when the commentators made mention of how Motor City Machine Guns and War Machine had never done battle before this bout. They've both been in ROH for a while, so it was cool that this felt like a meaningful encounter. Additionally, the action was excellent as there was never a dull moment and the crowd was solidly behind both teams. I like the Machine Guns, but it was weird War Machine took the loss even though they're now the IWGP Tag Team Champions (after this was taped). Could they be on their way out of Ring of Honor?
The fallout from Best in the World is in full effect, but this wasn't a newsworthy show in the slightest. Sure, the World Six-Man Tag Team Champions competed, but that match didn't give us any idea what their next program will be. In fact, no rivalries were furthered on this show, but it was an entertaining evening from an in-ring standpoint and worth checking out in that respect. Next week we'll see Bully Ray and The Briscoes take on The Bullet Club in what I believe will end with Jay Briscoe turning on Bully Ray as had been teased.
