ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions Villain Enterprises def. Jay Lethal, ROH World Television Champion Jeff Cobb and Rush
Lethal, Cobb and Rush are a really random trio and I have no idea how they managed to earn themselves a shot at the six-man tag titles, but hey, I can't complain because this match was excellent. It had a frantic pace and was all action from start to finish. It's easy to forget that the six-man titles are a thing sometimes because of little they're featured, but Villain Enterprises pulled out another top-notch performance here. PCO pinning Lethal for the win was notable, even though his ROH World Championship with Matt Taven has come and gone. Afterward, Kenny King attacked Lethal and I'm totally fine with that as a feud.
ROH World Champion Matt Taven def. Flip Gordon
The video packages that played hyping up Gordon as well as Taven's title win were terrific. It gave this bout a big fight feel even if the finish felt slightly predictable. Gordon never ceases to deliver in high profile matches and this was no exception. Taven tends to be hit or miss, but this was going very well up until the lame finish. The Kingdom interfering and aiding Taven to victory was weak. If that's what the company has in store for his title reign, then I don't have high hopes.
I remember being disappointed by how uneventful the 200th and 300th episodes of ROH TV were a few years ago, but this milestone show was really well done. Granted, only two matches were held, but both bouts were very good to great and felt important. There were also tweets displayed throughout the show congratulating Ring of Honor on 400 episodes. Quick videos being filmed by past and present members of the roster would have been better, but that's merely nitpicking. I enjoyed this episode and the hour flew by faster than usual.
