The Bullet Club Interrupted The Addiction and Dalton Castle
The explanation from The Addiction as to how their plan all along was to fool The Bullet Club was well done and the championship celebration itself was fun from Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. I'm glad they didn't waste much time at all in revealing who will be next to challenge him for the gold, that being Castle at this weekend's Supercard of Honor event. Not only that, but Cole revealed his intentions to go back after the gold eventually. This segment was also successful in setting up the night's main event.
ROH World Tag Team Champions The Hardyz def. The Briscoes
For those who missed it, The Hardyz are currently embroiled in an ugly legal battle with Impact Wrestling over the use of their "broken" characters, hence why they didn't do any of their signature mannerisms at the 15th Anniversary Show or in this match here. That aside, this was a great match, and how could it have not been considering these are two of the best tandems in the last decade and a half? The in-ring action was entertaining and there was also the official announcement for the upcoming Ladder match between The Hardyz and The Young Bucks at Supercard of Honor this weekend.
The Addiction and Dalton Castle def. The Bullet Club
This was a great mix of rivalries with Daniels obviously having his bad blood with Bullet Club and Castle scheduled to challenge Daniels for the title in a few days. The match itself was excellent with all six stars having their time to shine and there never seemed to be a dull moment. I liked the subtle tease of tension within Bullet Club with The Young Bucks inadvertently hitting Adam Cole with a superkick before losing, as it helps give Castle a boost of momentum and credibility in pinning Cole as well.
We had to wait three weeks, but the fallout from the 15th Anniversary Show finally aired on this edition of ROH TV, and it was an absolutely exceptional episode. There were only three segments, yet each of them served a purpose and were given plenty of time. There was a ton of hype for this weekend's Supercard of Honor event, including at the very end, so the timing could not have worked out better. Unfortunately, I fear the rest of these tapings will be outdated after next week, but we'll see what they have in store.
