Ring of Honor television is back with another week of “Road Rage” with footage from “Boiling Point.”
Kevin Kelly and Nigel McGuinness welcome us to the show.
Mike Mondo asks how Roderick Strong is going to feel when he realizes Mondo made an example out of him. Strong says after “Boiling Point” Mondo will change his name to “I Fear Roderick Strong.”
Mike Mondo vs Roderick Strong w/ Truth Martini
The match started off with plenty of heavy strikes as both guys tested each other. Out on the outside, Mondo busts Strong’s nose with a headbutt and that seemed to fire him up as he came back with a string of strong strikes and a suplex back on the outside. Mondo comes back and hits a moonsault off the top rope for two before hitting a head scissors which sent Strong into the barricades. Mondo stops Sinclair from stopping the match after he seemingly injures his shoulder but Strong hits a running knee into the corner and then a backbreaker for a very near two. Roaring elbow from Strong is followed up by a gutbuster but again Mondo kicks out. Strong goes for a suplex but Mondo with a rollup that gets him two. After some jousting, Strong manages to hit the Sick Kick for the victory in a very good opener.
Winner by Pinfall: Roderick Strong
It’s now time for Inside ROH. Michael Elgin says the last three seconds at “Glory by Honor” will be history because it will be him winning the ROH World Title. He tells Martini that it’s not about the House of Truth. Mike Bennett says not a lot gets him angry, but someone putting their hands on Maria pisses him off. He says he’s going to put the fear of God in Mondo. Jay Lethal and Davey Richards will go one-on-one at “Glory by Honor XI.” Lethal says he’s determined to gain something he’s never had and at the end of the story, the big bad wolf was killed. Survival of the Fittest will take place throughout October on ROH television. Next week is another “Road Rage” episode, but this one will be from “Death Before Dishonor X.”
Matt Taven vs Vinny Marseglia vs Antonio Thomas vs QT Marshall
All four guys get some time in the ring early on and it’s clear that Thomas and Marshall will be the heels in this one as they begin to work over Taven and Marseglia. With Marshall and Thomas on the outside, Taven hits a big dive to take out both guys on the outside. While Marshall goes for a stalling suplex on Marseglia, Thomas hits a nice crossbody from the top rope before he suplexes Marseglia and locks in a leglock on QT at the same time. From nowhere, Taven hits a frog splash from the other side of the ring to break up the count! Taven takes out both Marshall and Thomas with ease but can’t get a pinfall on either guy. Big tornado DDT from Taven on Marshall but he just gets his foot on the ropes. Marseglia takes out Marshall and Thomas with a dive before Marshall comes back and pulls him groin first into the steel ringpost. QT gets back in the ring and hits a modified inverted running powerslam on Taven for the win and an ROH contract.
Winner by Pinfall: QT Marshall
We now get to see the closing minutes of the Brutal Bob and Adam Cole match. Cole won the match with a Figure Four. Mike Bennett and Maria hit the ring, and Bennett jumps Cole. Eddie Edwards and Sara Del Rey make the save.
Mike Bennett and Maria vs Eddie Edwards and Sara Del Rey
Edwards and Bennett start us out with “Die Hard” dominating with a shining wizard and plenty of hard chops. Del Rey gets tagged in and she and Edwards take turns to kick Bennett, Del Rey stays in the ring and Bennett manages to tag Maria in who gets a few kicks in before Bennett is tagged back in and Edwards also gets tagged. Edwards again has Bennett’s number and hits two dropkicks to him while he was in the tree of woe. Bennett fights back briefly as both men take each other out. Maria tagged in and Del Rey hits three big boots before Bennett tags himself in only to be on the end of a suicide dive from Edwards. Backpack chinbreaker gets Edwards two before he locks in the Achilles Lock and Del Rey the Ankle Lock on Maria before they disappear under the ring. Bennett puts the Achilles Lock on Edwards before Del Rey comes out from under the ring with Maria’s top. A shocked Bennett lets go of the hold before Edwards takes advantage to lock it back in for the submission win.
Winners by Submission: Eddie Edwards and Sara Del Rey
