Here's a place to check results and comment along with Ring of Honor (ROH)'s Death Before Dishonor XVI pay-per-view (PPV) - happening Friday, Sept. 28, 2018 at Orleans Arena in Las Vegas.
The ALL IN influence can be felt on this show, in the card and the venue. DBD moves to a much bigger space than ROH’s past Vegas events, upgrading from to a building which holds close to 10,000 people. It’s not a sellout as of Thursday afternoon, and it will be interesting to see how they draw.
To help pack the building, and with their partner promotion running their own show in Southern California on Sunday night, New Japan will be well represented on Friday night. The main Bullet Club line-up (missing only Kenny Omega) will battle Kazuchika Okada and CHAOS (likely reeling from Gedo’s move to align himself with Switchblade Jay White last weekend in Kobe), and that latter stable’s Aerial Assassin Will Ospreay gets a shot at Jay Lethal’s ROH World title.
Three of ROH’s other championships will be on the line, with The Briscoes defending the tag straps against The Addiction, Sumie Sakai putting the Women’s belt up when she faces Tenille Dashwood and Punishment Martinez looking to hold onto his TV title when he battles Chris Sabin.
Plus, Jushin “Thunder” Liger, a Dudley in a tables match, and more!
We'll update the results tonight 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.
Kenny King def. Jushin “Thunder” Liger via pinfall. Liger sustained an injury and it looked like King was going to let him get up and recover. But then after a brief handshake, he suddenly hit a spinebuster for the win. After the match, he thanks Austin Aries into the camera for showing him the way.
The Briscoes (c) def. the Addiction (Christopher Daniels & Frankie Kazarian) to retain the Ring of Honor Tag Team championship when Jay Briscoe hit the Jay Driller on Daniels.
Sumie Sakai (c) def. Tenille Dashwood via armbar submission (Tenille passed out) to retain the ROH Women’s championship
Punishment Martinez (c) def Chris Saban with a chokeslam to retain the Ring of Honor Television title. After the match, Martinez tries to stomp Saban’s head through a chair but Jeff Cobb comes out to stop him! The stare each other down before Punishment retreats... but soon returns to hit him with a chair. But Cobb no sells it and delivers a power move to put the champ down!
Bully Ray & Silas Young def Flip Gordon & Colt Cabana in a Tables match
First elimination was Bully putting Colt through a table with Ian Riccaboni watching.
Second was Young sidestepping Bully and tossing him into a propped table.
Referee was knocked out when Flip put Young through a table with a 450. Bully Ray came back, knocked down Flip, and put him in the remains of the table and convinced dumb referee Todd Sinclair it was Flip who went through the table.
- We see Tenille Dashwood was attacked backstage.
Bullet Club (Cody Rhodes, the Young Bucks, Hangman Page & Marty Scurll) def. CHAOS (Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Ishii, Rocky Romero, Chuckie T & Beretta) when Marty Scurll taps out Rocky Romero with the crossface chickenwing.
Jay Lethal (c) def. Will Ospreay with the Lethal Injection to retain the Ring of Honor World title
Vinny Marseglia and TK O’Ryan attack them both post match. Jonathan Gresham tries to help but he gets beat up too. When Lethal fights back, Matt Taven runs out and attacks him with a purple world title belt.
