ROH new logo
Ring of Honor returned home to Baltimore last night for some TV tapings. This will bridge the gap between next week's Boiling Point and next mont's Death Before Dishonor X.
Courtesy of our fellow Cagesider Jergs, here are the spoilers!
Sara Del Rey defeated Mia Yim but suffered a post-match beatdown from Mike Bennett and Maria. Luckily, her Boiling Point tag team partner Eddie Edwards made the save. "Thank you" chant to Del Rey.
Truth Martini tried to convince Jim Cornette the House of Truth and Rhino especially could take out World Champion Kevin Steen. Edwards reappeared to say he should be number one contender. Edwards vs. Rhino!
Rhino beat out Edwards and won himself a shot at Steen at Death Before Dishonor X. Fun old school ECW-style brawl.
And speaking of the champ, Steen held onto his title by low blowing Homicide behind the referee's back and hitting him with the F-Cinq.
In tag title tournament action, C&C Wrestle Factory -- Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander -- defeated The Young Bucks.
Charlie Haas came out to cut a promo and said he and Shelton Benjamin should be tag champs. Rhett Titus interrupted him and they somehow agreed to be partners in the tournament. They said when they win, they'll fight each other for the belts. Do what?
Someone named QT Marshall beat someone named Tadarius Thomas.
Next up was a six man mayhem match for a World TV title shot between Mike Bennett, TJ Perkins, Tomasso Ciampa, Roderick Strong, Mike Mondo and Jay Lethal. The baffling push of Mondo continues -- or as Jergs put it, "Mondo-mania continues to run wild in the Du Burns" -- as he picks up the win and will take on the TV champ at Death Before Dishonor X.
Check out the spoilers for the third and fourth episodes after the jump.
In more tournament action, Steve Corino and Jimmy Jacobs beat The Bravado Brothers. Corino and Jacobs got in after Titus and Haas teamed up, leaving a spot empty. After the match, they revealed Jim Cornette made them put up their contracts to enter so if they lose, they'll be gone from ROH. The Guardians of Truth attack and Steen makes the save until Rhino shows up to Gore him.
Matt Taven and Jay Lethal doesn't really start as Lethal complained Cornette wouldn't give him a shot at the world title because he lacked killer instinct. So he low blowed Taven and hit Lethal Injection on the referee.
Speaking of The Guardians of Truth, Haas and Titus beat them in the first round of the tournament despite the impromptu team's bickering.
In the final first round match of the tag title tournament, The Briscoes defeated BLK OUT.
Mike Sydal defeated Mike Bennett by countout after Mike Mondo came out and kissed Maria leading Bennett to chase him backstage.
Tomasso Ciampa beat Mike Posey and RD Evans provided commentary. Prince Nana came out to attack him but Ciampa made the save. MOAR RD EVANS ON ROH PLZ~!
And in the main event, World TV Champion Adam Cole and Michael Elgin went to a no contest when the referee got knocked out. The Guardians of Truth were at ringside and got attacked by Steen and his crew. Rhino then came out and attacked Steen. The show ends with Elgin and House of Truth stablemate Roderick Strong facing off. Strong threatened to hit Elgin with the Book of Truth and Elgin dared him to but... nothing.
JUST PULL THE FREAKIN' TRIGGER ALREADY.
There you have it, Cagesiders. What do you think?
ROH will return to Baltimore on September 22 for the final time in 2012. It was teased to be a historic evening.
