Chuckie T def. Josh "The Goods" Woods
In addition to Chuckie and Woods being fairly directionless at the moment, it didn't help that they're both babyfaces and the crowd didn't have an incentive to cheer for one guy over the other, though Chuckie is a natural fan favorite. It was nice and clean from an in-ring standpoint, but I honestly found it difficult to care about the contest. Here's hoping Ring of Honor actually does something with Chuckie while Beretta is injured.
ROH Women of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai def. Stella Grey (Non-title)
I noted in my review of ROH TV just last week that ROH should be doing a better job of incorporating the women into their shows in the future, and all it took was one week for that to happen, which is a positive sign. This was slightly awkward at certain points, but on the whole, this was a quality showcase for the new champ. There were a few new faces I didn't recognize on commentary and confronting Sakai afterward, so it's cool that the division is already starting to grow.
ROH Enforcer Bully Ray Addressed the Audience
I hated the Bully Ray angle from Supercard of Honor because there was no reason for it to take up so much screen time, and I don't like how Ray is already seemingly coming out of retirement. That said, he is an excellent heel and he cut a good promo here that elicited decent heat. Ray also addressed Joe Koff (the ROH COO), and that made me think: Why hasn't Koff already fired Bully from his position as ROH Enforcer?
ROH World Television Champion Silas Young def. Flip Gordon
Young just regained the gold at Supercard of Honor, so the outcome was in never in doubt for me. That said, this was a fun main event with yet another strong showing from Gordon. He impresses with every opportunity he gets, and he'll surely be a champion before long. Anyway, the crowd bought into the nearfalls down the stretch and was solidly behind Gordon, but the result was what it needed to be and I was happy Young won in clean fashion.
The fallout from Supercard of Honor is finally here, and this was a solid first show coming out of that event. It wasn't incredibly newsworthy, but everything outside of maybe the opener served a purpose. Plus, the main event is enjoyable and is worth checking out in my opinion. Coming up on ROH TV, Dalton Castle and The Boys face The Kingdom in a six-man tag team match next week while The Young Bucks vie for The Briscoes' ROH World Tag Team Championship in two weeks.
