Silas Young and Josh "The Goods" Woods def. Coast to Coast
I still can't believe that Ring of Honor continues to waste Coast to Coast. They've been back in action for a while now, and although I originally assumed all their losses would lead to them turning heel, nothing has really come of it and thus I've given up hope that they'll ever be used in a meaningful manner. It's a shame because they're a talented tandem with minimal momentum, but I guess ROH is more concerned with telling a story with Young and Woods. They're a fun duo as well and this was a decent match, but the crowd sat on their hands for it.
Jay Lethal def. PJ Black in a Final Battle No. 1 contender's Tournament Quarterfinal Match
(From my Death Before Dishonor Fallout review...) Lethal was originally supposed to face Bandido, but apparently an injury kept Bandido (likely suffered at Death Before Dishonor the night prior) prevented him from competing. I was bummed to hear that because that bout could have been a show-stealer. That's not to say this was bad by any means, as they ended up having a quality contest. However, I never once thought Black could realistically beat Lethal, especially since he hasn't won a meaningful singles match in forever. By the way, why was Black put in this spot over virtually anyone else?
Highlights were also shown of Villain Enterprises vs. Bandido and The Briscoes for the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Championship, which also aired on the Death Before Dishonor Fallout show, in addition to the other quarterfinal matches from the Final Battle No. 1 Contender's Tournament including Dalton Castle vs. Mark Haskins, Marty Scurll vs. Colt Cabana, and PCO vs. Kenny King. Young and Woods vs. Coast to Coast was a fresh match but hardly anything worth going out of your way to see. Lethal vs. Black also seemed like an odd choice to showcase since it was a solid matchup yet extremely predictable. In other words, it was another forgettable edition of ROH TV this week.
