Eck's Files: Honor For All Will Be HonorClub Exclusive; The Allure Has NWA Women's Tag Title Shot; Jonathan Gresham-Chris Ridgeway Pure Match To Air On Week By Week

By Kevin Eck

ROH has a special treat for HonorClub members next month when it presents Honor For All.

The star-studded show will be streamed exclusively for HonorClub on Saturday, Nov. 14.

Keep it locked on ROHWrestling.com and ROH’s social media channels for Honor For All match announcements and additional information.

A Pure Rules Match between former ROH Pure Champion Jonathan Gresham and British star Chris Ridgeway will be featured on the next episode of ROH Week By Week, which premieres Tuesday at 1 p.m. Eastern on YouTube.

The match took place a couple weeks ago at Wrestle Carnival Pure in Nottingham, England.

The NWA Women’s Tag Team Title will be on the line when The Allure (Angelina Love and Mandy Leon) challenge The Hex (Allysin Kay and Marti Belle) on next week’s Women’s Division Wednesday, which premieres at 7 p.m. Eastern on YouTube.

Two weeks ago on Women’s Division Wednesday, The Allure came down to ringside to distract Chelsea Green during her match against Ashley Vox. That brought out Green’s friends, The Hex, who exchanged words (and shoves) with The Allure.

The Hex went to ROH Board of Directors member Maria Kanellis-Bennett and demanded a match against The Allure and said they’d be willing to put their belts at stake. NWA executive Mickie James signed off on the title match.

“We were just welcoming Chelsea Green,” Leon said. “Who said we were even going to lay our hands on her? We’re good people. You want to stick your nose in our business? You want a challenge? That’s fine. We’ll leave with the NWA Women’s Tag Team Titles.”

Speaking of ROH competitors who are looking to win another promotion’s tag team title, 11-time former ROH World Tag Team Champions Jay and Mark Briscoe could very well be wearing Game Changer Wrestling’s tag team belts after facing defending champions Second Gear Crew (Mance Warner and Matthew Justice) Saturday at GCW’s War Ready in Los Angeles.

Dalton Castle, the No. 1 contender for the ROH World Television Championship, will take time out of his busy schedule to face Dragon Lee for the title on an episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling next month.

It’s been more than three years since Castle, a former ROH World Champion and World Six-Man Tag Team Champion, has had gold around his waist, which is entirely too long for a world class competitor such as himself.

I love Halloween (the season and the movie franchise), so I had a blast talking horror movies, the supernatural in pro wrestling, creepy experiences and more with Love, Bateman and comedian/actor/wrestling podcaster Matt McCarthy on the latest episode of The ROHStrong Podcast, which drops this Monday morning on ROHWrestling.com and most podcast platforms.

Also in the spirit of the season, a special Halloween episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling is on tap for the weekend of Oct. 30.

The show is headlined by an ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title Match pitting champions Shane Taylor Promotions (Taylor and Soldiers of Savagery’s Moses and Kaun) against Danhausen, PCO and Sledge.

There also will be a Wildcard Trick or Treat Halloween Tag Team Four-Corner Survival with all of the teams drawn at random out of a jack-o'-lantern, and ROH Women’s World Champion Rok-C will team with Quinn McKay to take on Miranda Alize and Max The Impaler.

I truly believe Moses and Kaun would be the ROH World Tag Team Champions right now if Bestia del Ring had not distracted the referee during their title match against Lee and Kenny King on this past weekend’s episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling.

Bestia’s constant interference in La Faccion Ingobernable matches is beyond old and the ROH Board of Directors needs to take action.

I had two thoughts after watching Brian Milonas, the self-proclaimed best pound-for-pound Pure wrestler in the world, defeat Eric Martin in a Pure Rules Match on the latest ROH Week By Week: 1. Milonas is a legitimate threat to win the ROH Pure Title; 2. Milonas, Beer City Bruiser and Ken Dixon are asking for trouble if they keep antagonizing Coleman and bullying his broadcast partner Ian Riccaboni.

Coleman is one of the nicest people you’ll ever meet, but as the saying goes, don’t mistake kindness for weakness. Coleman may not wrestle often in ROH, but he is a champion on the independent circuit and keeps himself in fantastic shape.

This weekend’s episode of Ring of Honor Wrestling has a Violence vs. Pure theme, headlined by a match between former ROH World Champions Homicide of Violence Unlimited and Jay Lethal of The Foundation.

Also, VU’s Brody King and Chris Dickinson take on The Foundation’s Gresham and Tracy Williams in tag action, and VU’s Tony Deppen squares off with The Foundation’s Rhett Titus.

Until next time, keep safe and stay #ROHStrong!
