Here are the latest matches and segments that you can expect to see on a future episode on ROH TV on Honor Club, possibly as soon as this Thursday (May 11).
These matches were taped on Sat., May 6 and Sun., May 7 at Universal Studios in Orlando (fka “The Impact Zone”). They include ground being laid for a match between the ROH and New Japan Television champions, the set-up for the next big Women’s title feud, and the return of a former Women’s champ.
Here are the spoilers as reported by Wrestling Observer and Fightful:
Saturday’s Show/Session 1
• Claudio Castagnoli & Wheeler Yuta def. Rhett Titus & Tracy Williams
• Samoa Joe def. Blake Christian to retain the ROH Television championship
• The Righteous (Vincent & Dutch) def. The Infantry (Shawn Dean & Carlie Bravo)
• Robyn Renegade def. Vert Vixen
• Willie Mack def. Ninja Mack
• Shane Taylor & the Work Horsemen (Anthony Henry & JD Drake) def. Schaff & Midnight Heat (Eddie Pearl & Ricky Gibson)
• Kyle Fletcher (w/ Aussie Open partner Mark Davis) def. Tony Deppen
• Dark Order (Stu Grayson, Evil Uno, John Silver & Alex Reynolds) def. Trustbusters (Jeeves Kay, Sonny Kiss, Slim J) & Josh Woods
• Athena def. Skye Blue to retain the ROH Women’s title. The champ shook Blue’s hand post-match, but then knocked her down and heeled it up.
Saturday’s Session/Show 2
• Mark Briscoe def. Shane Taylor
• Willow Nightingale def. Madi Wrenkowski
• Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal def. Zack Clayton & Cole Karter
• Angelico & Serpentico def. Cheeseburger & Eli Isom
• Zack Sabre Jr. def. AR Fox to retain the New Japan World TV championship.
• Samoa Joe interrupted a post-match interview with Sabre, essentially saying he wants to find out whether he or ZSJ is the better TV champ. That brought Sydal & Daniels back out to set-up a tag match; if they can beat the champs, they’ll get a title shot(s).
• Gates of Agony (Kaun & Toa Liona) def. Dalton Castle & Brandon of The Boys
• Mercedes Martinez def. Ashley D’Amboise. This was Martinez’s first match anywhere since dropping the Women’s title to Athena last December at Final Battle.
• Action Andretti & Darius Martin def. The Kingdom (Matt Taven & Mike Bennett w/Maria Kanellis) in a Fight Without Honor
• Mark Briscoe def. JD Drake
• Claudio Castagnoli def. Serpentico in a Proving Ground match (if Serpentico had won, he would have received a future shot at Castignoli’s ROH World title)
• Rey Fenix def. Gringo Loco
• Kiera Hogan def. Vert Vixen. Athena scouted this match, first from the stage then moving down to ringside. The champ got into it a bit with Hogan after the match.
• Kyle Fletcher (w/Mark Davis) def. AR Fox
• Iron Savages (Bronson & Boulder) def. Peter Avalon & Ryan Nemeth
• Willow Nightingale defeated Hyan
• The Kingdom def. Willie Mack & Ninja Mack
• The Embassy (Toa Liona, Kaun, & Brian Cage) def. Adam Priest, Lucky Ali & Victor Benjamin
• Mercedes Martinez def. Dream Girl Ellie
• Samoa Joe & Zack Sabre Jr. def. Matt Sydal & Christopher Daniels, so no TV title shots for them
• Penta El Zero Miedo def. Slim J
• Skye Blue def. Miranda Alize
• Rocky Romero def. Titus Alexander
• The Righteous (Vincent & Dutch) & Stu Grayson def. LSG, Marcus Kross & Vary Morales. Dark Order wanted a word with Grayson afterwards, but he didn’t have anything to say to them.
• Shane Taylor (w/ The WorkHorsemen) def. Tracy Williams (w/ Rhett Titus)
• Athena def. Promise Braxton. Kiera Hogan ran in to save Braxton from a post-match beatdown, and left Athena laying.
• Dralistico (w/ Jose The Assistant) def. Tony Deppen
• Ashley D’Amboise def. Danielle Kamela
• Darius Martin & Action Andretti def. Cole Karter & Zack Clayton
• Blake Christian def. Nick Comoroto
• Diamante def. Trish Adora
• AR Fox def. Anthony Henry (w/ JD Drake).
• Drake jumped Fox in the aftermath, and was joined by Shane Taylor. FTR ran in for the save.
• Eddie Kingston joined the faces in the ring for the show-closing promo. This is where he revealed he’ll be getting hernia surgery this week, and how long he expects to be out. More on that here.
