Ring of Honor returned to Mississauga, ON, Canada this past Saturday night October 13th for “Glory by Honor XI” live on iPPV. It was a night of several instant classic, must-see bouts, the possible death of the House of Truth, and an ending that words cannot do justice. The replay can be purchased right here in the ROH Store and here is a look at the complete results:
1. Caged Hostility Rematch: Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander beat Lancelot & Harlem Bravado
2. Grudge Match: “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett defeated “No Fear” Mike Mondo; In a match that saw Maria gyrating and Mondo diving off the entryway truss, Mondo suffered a serious ankle injury during the course of the bout that required him be taken to the ER for treatment
3. Tag Team Grudge Match: Wrestling's Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin) beat BJ Whitmer & Rhett Titus in a total brawl that started before the bell even rang
4. In a must-see battle, Jay Lethal beat Davey Richards via referee stoppage when Richards passed out in the Koji Clutch; Prior to the match Lethal got on the microphone and discussed his meeting with Joe Koff. Lethal said Koff wanted to sweep the incident with his mother under the rug. He also said Steen can kiss his ass, but he put Cornette out, sees that nobody seems too upset about that, and be careful what you wish for. He said ROH told him he was too nice and needed a killer instinct, so he tells ROH that they can kiss his ass too. Lethal than said he won't say the same to his opponent tonight, because he has a lot of respect for Davey Richards. After the match, Eddie Edwards suprisingly came out to check on his former American Wolves tag team partner...
- Prior to the start of his scheduled match with Tadarius Thomas, Roderick Strong came to the ring in street clothes and protested being in a match against Thomas because “he hasn't beaten anybody”. Strong said he's not just on strike from the HoT, but he is quitting the House of Truth and is going to sit front row and watch Elgin lose. Truth then got Rhino, who looked none too happy about it, to take on Thomas
5. Tadarius Thomas pinned Rhino; Rhino seemed not at all happy about this match or about Truth get involved in it as a distraction from Martini set Rhino up to get knocked loopy from a Tadarius kick long enough for him to score the upset. After the loss, Rhino grabbed Martini (who tried to throw money at Rhino to stop him) and press slammed him over the top rope to the floor against the guardrails.
6. ROH World TV Title Match: Adam Cole defeated Eddie Edwards to retain; This amazing back-and-forth battle saw Eddie nearly capture the title for the second time on several occassions but Cole continue to fight back until he nailed Florida Key for the win. As a side note, this marks the 3rd former World Champion Cole has beaten this year (Richards at “10th Anniversary”, Strong for the TV Title, and now Edwards)...
7. ROH World Tag Title Match: S.C.U.M (Steve Corino & Jimmy Jacobs) beat Jay & Mark Briscoe to retain in a wild brawl that
8. ROH World Title Match: Kevin Steen defeated “Unbreakable” Michael Elgin to retain in a ridiculously hard-hitting bout that must been seen. Both men gave it their absolute all and it took a top rope Package Piledriver to finally put Elgin away! Prior to the match, Steen told the fans that ROH gave into his demands including a new title belt and the reinstatement of the package piledriver. During the course of the match Elgin took Roderick, who was seated at ringside, and whipped him through the guardrails!
After the match, Strong returned and absolutely drilled Elgin with a Sick Kick before running away. Then, referee Paul Turner handed Nigel McGuinness a package that was to be delivered to Steen in the event of him retaining the World Title. Nigel handed the box over to the champion who opened it and to his shock & disbelief found an El Generico mask inside...
