Both of Ring of Honor’s tag titles change hands at 16th Anniversary

Coming into Ring of Honor’s pay-per-view (PPV) on March 9, conventional wisdom had it that not many earth-shaking events would happen. There’s another big show in less than a month (Supercard of Honor XII, going head-to-head with NXT TakeOver: New Orleans on WrestleMania weekend), and a heavily promoted New Japan show in which several ROH wrestlers will play a big part.

But then Impact’s World champ showed up, The Cleaner put on a bear suit, and all bets were off.

The Hung Bucks vs. SoCal Uncensored was the kind of balls to the wall action extravaganza we’ve come to expect from Matt and Nick Jackson - and Adam Page, really - especially when they get together with Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian. Especially considering it was a Las Vegas Street Fight!

Shane Taylor got involved... and paid for it...

Which set the stage for the end...

Which allowed The Fallen Angel to become the first man in history to hold all of ROH’s current titles (World, Television, Tag and Six-Man), and set the stage for The Kingdom to attack The Bucks and further Bullet Club’s issues with that crew.


Then, a battle of tag team royalty saw Dem Boys go after the Motor City Machine Guns as Jay and Mark Briscoe sought to become NINE-TIME ROH tag champs:

And with Jay Driller, it was...

Worn out by the Biz Cliz drams and saving up for an emotional and gripping successful Dalton Castle title defense against Jay Lethal, the Las Vegas crowd wasn’t super loud for the tag title match. Guess that shows you how ROH (and maybe indie wrestling as a whole) has evolved from when The Briscoes were its hottest act.

All told, it was a pretty fun - and surprisingly eventful - night of wrestling from ROH (and NJPW, and Impact).
