Here's a place to check results and comment along with Ring of Honor (ROH)'s Death Before Dishonor XV pay-per-view (PPV), happening Friday, Sept. 22 at Sam’s Town Live in Las Vegas.
The main event will feature Cody (Rhodes) defending his World title against New Japan’s Minoru Suzuki. Will The American Nightmare be able to make the 49 year MMA pioneer “kiss the ring”?
In addition to Cody, The Bullet Club is well represented in ROH these days, and this show will be no exception. The Young Buck have not one, but two title matches in Vegas. They’ll defending their tag belts against old rivals Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley, the Motor City Machine Guns AND face the winners of a Kingdom vs. Briscoes and Bully Ray bout for their Six-Man championship... assuming Adam Page has been located by bell time.
New Japan’s KUSHIDA again defends the TV title, this time against Bachelorette star Kenny King, and a trio of grudge matches round out the card. Chuck Taylor will face Bullet Club’s villain, Marty Scurll, rising stars Jay White and Punishment Martinez duke it out in a street fight, and Jay Lethal and The Last Real Man Silas Young take their rivalry to a Last Man Standing match.
In addition to the traditional PPV outlets listed here, you can stream the show for $34.99 from Ring of Honor’s website at this link or via FiteTV at this one. The opening bell is scheduled for 9PM Eastern.
We'll update the results as they happen, and feel free to use this space to discuss all the action with the best pro wrestling community on the internet - before, during and after the show.
Mark Briscoe, Jay Briscoe & Bully Ray def. The Kingdom and will face Bullet Club for the Six Man Tag titles later; Bully and Mark hit the Doomsday Device on TK O’Ryan for the win, and Jay didn’t seem to like being left out. He teased a turn when he grabbed a steel chair, but ended up just throwing it at TK bfore storming off.
Kenny Omega will work all four upcoming Global Wars shows, and the announce team plays along with the Being The Elite gag about Adam Page being missing and therefore unable to work the Six Man championship match with The Young Bucks.

Adam Page & The Young Bucks def. Bully & The Briscoes via pinfall to retain their ROH Six Man Tag Team championship. The challengers had Matt Jackson on the ropes after a Wazzup head butt, but when they got the tables, Jay Briscoe hit Bully Ray with it and Page raced in to cover. Mark looked on in shock as Jay left, screaming that he and his brother are the best tag team on the planet, not Dudley.

Silas Young def. Jay Lethal in a Last Man Standing Match. Brutal affair with Lethal getting busted open and taking his own finisher. Young stood up before the ten count after both men went through a table off a falling ladder, but Jay was zip-tied to said ladder.
This #lastmanstanding match has been everything it was advertised to be. #ROHDBD pic.twitter.com/6tKfRclgPS— ROH Wrestling (@ringofhonor) September 23, 2017
The Motor City Machine Guns def. The Young Bucks to become NEW ROH Tag Team titleholders; The Addiction ran in (as they’re currently heels trying to ruin things the fans like), which got MCMG and the Bucks to team up and take them out with IndyTaker on the floor. In the chaos which ensued, The Guns got the pin.
The Bucks and Guns bonding over a common cause. #ROHDBD pic.twitter.com/SxynZZQGJE— ROH Wrestling (@ringofhonor) September 23, 2017
