Alex Shelley def. JonathAN gRESHAM
(From my Glory by Honor review...) Gresham is coming off a huge victory versus Lethal at Death Before Dishonor, so I wouldn't have had him lose here. Shelley is very talented and is a star in his own right, but the only way I could see this making sense is if Gresham gets frustrated and goes full-fledged heel soon. He came close afterward and nearly battered Lethal with a steel chair, but Lethal talked him out it. Otherwise, this was a wonderful match that stole the show in my opinion. Shelley hasn't lost a step in the squared circle and you can always count on Gresham to bring the goods regardless of who he's up against. This story with Lethal and Gresham is one of the best things going in ROH at the moment.
ROH World Champion Rush def. Silas Young
(From my Glory by Honor review...) This was Rush's first title defense since becoming ROH World Champion at Death Before Dishonor. There was virtually no chance that Young was going to take the title, but at least he was able to look competitive against Rush before losing. It was a well wrestled match and Young had a solid showing, but it was hard to buy into any of the nearfalls when it was painfully predictable that Young wasn't winning.
Shelley vs. Gresham was easily the best match from Glory by Honor last month and is worth a watch if you haven't already seen it. Rush vs. Young for the ROH World Championship was also fine but felt like filler. There was a backstage segment that aired in between the matches where Vinny Marseglia vowed to find Matt Taven's attacker, even though it's since been revealed that he was behind it. It was another decent edition of ROH TV yet skippable for those who have seen Glory by Honor. On a side note, I don't plan on watching The Experience or Unauthorized from over the weekend, so I'll just wait until the more important matches air on ROH TV soon.
