ROH Classics: CM Punk and Raven get violent again, Bullet Club, more!

Ring of Honor is back with more classic matches posted on their YouTube channel as part of a Month of Honor gimmick to help you through these quarantine times. This week’s offerings include CM Punk vs Raven in a Clockwork Orange House of Fun Match, talent from AJPW, the Bullet Club, and much more.

Last week’s ROH Classics brought you a dog collar match between CM Punk and Raven. Their feud continued with a Clockwork Orange House of Fun Match (here) at ROH Beating the Odds. Weapons were hung on the cage. Aside from chairshots to the head, it is not so violent that it encroaches into gross territory. This fight had quality drama with believable false finishes, and the winning move was bonkers.

Other ROH bouts released this week include:

  • CM Punk & Colt Cabana vs Kazushi Miyamoto & Tomoaki Honma - Final Battle 2003 (here)
  • Adam Cole, Matt Taven, & Mike Bennett vs AJ Styles & The Young Bucks - ROH/NJPW War of the Worlds (here)
  • ROH World Championship: Jay Briscoe vs Samoa Joe - ROH Supercard of Honor IX (here)
  • KENTA & El Generico vs Nigel McGuinness & Davey Richards - ROH’s 7th Anniversary Show (here)
  • No Rules: Roderick Strong vs Steve Corino - ROH 3rd Anniversary Celebration (here)
  • First women’s match in ROH history: Sumie Sakai vs Simply Luscious - Road to the Title 2002 (here)
