Jay LEthal def. Punishment Martiez
Martinez selling the leg for a majority of the match wasn't exactly what I had in mind coming into this contest, but it turned out to be a real solid outing, nonetheless. Martinez tends to shine no matter who he shares a ring with and this was no different as he took Lethal to the limit and looked credible in defeat. Lethal won in decisive fashion, so I'm interested to see what's next for him in Ring of Honor.
Shane Taylor vs. Joey "Diesel" Daddiego Ended in a No Contest
Taylor has been on quite the tear lately, destroying everyone who has been put in front of him. As for Daddiego, he has apparently been off ROH TV for over a year (I honestly had no idea, I didn't even realize he had been gone) and was brought back to be fed to Taylor. It should be noted that he put up more of a fight than I expected him to, but Taylor came across like an unhinged monster in this match and was the real star.
Bullet Club def. ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions SoCal Uncensored (Non-title)
Bullet Club consisted of Cody, Adam Page and Marty Scurll here. The whole "Bullet Club is fine" angle was furthered with Cody, Scurll and Page continuing to tease tension, but more specifically, Scurll inadvertently attacked Cody afterward. I'm sure that will play into both of them wanting a shot at ROH World Champion Dalton Castle at Best in the World. At any rate, this was an entertaining main event with a fun, frantic pace in the second half. I'd argue Bullet Club winning should earn them a shot at the six-man tag titles, but SoCal Uncensored aren't even the champions anymore as of this writing due to dropping the straps to The Kingdom at a recent house show.
The road to Best in the World rolls on with another all-around enjoyable edition of ROH TV. The main event is well worth going out of your to check out for how excellent it is (and how it served a purpose storyline-wise with Cody and Scurll), but the rest of the show flew by with Lethal and Martinez having a quality opener, Taylor squashing another dude, and the women's division getting showcased with a brief video package.
