Here's a place to check results and comment along with Ring of Honor (ROH)'s Best in the World pay-per-view (PPV) - happening Friday, June 28, 2019 at UMBC Event Center in Baltimore.
This is the promotion’s first major show since their WrestleMania week event with New Japan Pro Wrestling, April 5’s G1 Supercard at Madison Square Garden. The card doesn’t feature any NJPW stars - which may be a result of how the MSG show went, or it could just be because New Japan has a big show in Dallas next Saturday. Whatever the reason, this card still has three championship bouts, a mystery partner for the NWA champ, and several CMLL luchadors. It has the potential to be a fun night of graps.
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.
- RUSH def. Flip Gordon with his Bull’s Horns corner kick. RUSH remains undefeated in ROH.
- There’s a promo segment where Nick Aldis cut a promo about a new partner. James Storm interrupted him. He has issues with both Aldis and Cabana. He’s not the partner. The partner turns out to be Eli Drake.
- Dalton Castle def. Dragon Lee
Castle hit his Bangarang but instead of going for the cover, he delivered RUSH’s Bull’s Horns finisher to Lee for the win. (Castle was squashed by RUSH at the MSG show and this was Dalton sending a message via RUSH’s friend Lee.)
- The Allure (Angelina Love & Mandy Leon) def. Jenny Rose & Kelly Klein
Angelina Love pinned Women’s champion Kelly Klein with the Botox Injection kick, but that was after Leon hit Kelly with a shoe when the referee wasn’t looking.
After the match, a video plays of an unknown person destroying a toy and then the name “Man Eater.” Then one Maria Manic is standing there and lays out security.
- Kenny King def. Jay Lethal to win their best of three series
Kenny King hit the Lethal Injection and then the Royal Flush to beat Lethal.
- Jonathan Gresham def. Silas Young in a Pure Rules match
Gresham distracted the referee by dragging the ring apron into the ring while skinning the cat, hit a low blow, and then locked on his Royal Octopus hold when Silas was out of rope breaks (each man only gets three under Pure Rules).
- Nick Aldis and
Colt Cabana Eli Drake vs. The Briscoes ends in a double countout
All four men were brawling outside the ring when the referee Brian Hebner called for the bell. Jay Briscoe and Eli Drake fought through the crowd and into the back, and Camille appeared to help Aldis with Mark Briscoe, Colt Cabana tries to leave commentary to get involved, it was chaotic. Aldis ended up getting froggy-boed though a table by Mark. Marty Scurll came out to help his friend to the back.
- Shane Taylor (c) def. Bandido to retain the ROH World Television title with a belly-to-belly piledriver
- Villain Enterprises (c) def. Mark Haskins, “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams & PJ Black to retain the ROH World Six-Man championship when PCO hits the PCO-sault onto PJ for the pin.
After the match, the Soldiers of Savagery attack Lifeblood. Bandido comes out and makes the save against both men. But then Bully Ray comes out and attacks Bandido. That draws out Flip Gordon who chases off Bully.
The Lifeblood guys give Flip a Lifeblood shirt, and he puts it on.
Suddenly, Marty Scurll, who literally was just in the match, comes on the video tron. He introduces the newest Villain Enterprises member when the camera pans over.... and it’s Flip Gordon! In the ring, Flip superkicks Bandido. He’s joined by his new Villain Enterprises crew and they beat up Lifeblood. Flip 450’s Tracey William from the turnbuckle through a table set up on the floor.
- Matt Taven (c) def. Jeff Cobb to retain the ROH World championship with the Climax
That’s the show, folks. Thanks for watching with us!
