Lifeblood def. Dalton Castle and The Boys
Juice Robinson, Bandido and Tracy Williams represented Lifeblood in this match. All of the recent Ring of Honor pickups have been impressive so far and Lifeblood had another solid showing here. I enjoyed the interaction between Castle and Robinson early and the rest of the bout was fun. Lifeblood going over was the right call, but it's interesting to note that Castle continues to lose. One would have to assume that a heel turn is on the horizon for him.
NWA National Champion Willie Mack def. Rhett Titus
I don't believe we've ever seen Mack in action on ROH TV before (not to mention the NWA National Championship being defended), so that was pretty cool. I'd definitely be open to seeing more of him, Nick Aldis and other NWA guys in ROH more often as part of the partnership the companies have. He's really making the rounds right now between NWA, ROH and IMPACT (I don't count Lucha Underground because it looks unlikely that it'll be renewed for a fifth season). Anyway, Titus does nothing for me, but he looked decent here and this was a good, well-wrestled match.
ROH World Champion Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham def. Coast to Coast
This marked the first match Coast to Coast has had as a team since last year. They were on a roll before one of the guys got hurt, so I'm hoping they'll be able to recapture that momentum eventually. Facing two top guys in Lethal and Gresham in the main event of ROH TV will certainly help with that and I thought this was an entertaining main event. It could have been better with more time, but for what it was, it was a quality main event.
Similar to last week, this also must have been taped prior to the 17th Anniversary Show pay-per-view, because aside from a few video packages, there was no build for G1 Supercard whatsoever. I'm super stoked for that event, but it's a shame it's barely been built up on ROH programming. These three matches were enjoyable, yet felt like they lacked significance in the long run.
