Alex Zayne def. Andrew Everett
(From my Free Enterprise review...) Zayne and Everett have had some impressive showings recently in ROH, so while both guys could have used this victory to further establish themselves, it was a fun showcase for the two of them, nonetheless. I don't think either man is under contract to the company, so I wouldn't be shocked if this was designed to be a tryout of sorts for them. If I was ROH, I would sign both guys. This was action-packed from start to finish.
The Briscoes def. ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Bandido and Flamita
(From my Free Enterprise review...) The Briscoes have been with ROH for what feels like forever (and they actually recently re-signed), yet they never cease to have outstanding matches with whoever they're up against. Bandido and Flamita have been a terrific team (and trio alongside Rey Horus), so as you would probably expect, this was fantastic. Both teams put forth a hell of an effort and delivered an incredibly exciting and suspenseful second half. The crowd and the commentators were losing their minds toward the end and it really was tag team wrestling at its finest. Bandido and Flamita lost nothing here because they're two-thirds of the six-man tag team champs, while The Brisoces are owed a rematch for the ROH World Tag Team Championship eventually. Now I need Round 2 as soon as possible.
Much like last week, this week's edition of ROH TV consisted purely of matches from Free Enterprise last month. Both bouts were very good, so it was a fun hour of wrestling in the whole. They also aired extended videos with 2 Guys 1 Tag and PJ Black and Brian Johnson, both of which were well done and gave those teams some additional character development. ROH TV is far from a must-see show still because of how it continues to feature matches that have already aired, but at least the in-ring action is improving, making the show more worthwhile than it was a few months ago.
