“Ring of Honor Wrestling” #437
Airdate: Weekend of Feb. 1, 2020
Cold Open: Bandido, Flamita and Rey Horus upset Villain Enterprises (Marty Scurll, Brody King and Flip Gordon) to win the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title at Saturday Night at Center Stage on Jan. 11.
Dalton Castle and Joe Hendry vs. Master and Machine (Griff Garrison and Marcus Kross)
In an a backstage segment taped prior to the match, Castle and Hendry talked about getting on track as a team. Hendry said they are two of the best athletes in the sport and should be dominating the tag team division. Hendry fired up Castle and said it starts tonight.
After several minutes of back-and-forth action, M&M hit the Skywalker elbow on Hendry for a near fall. Hendry rallied and hit a fallaway slam on Kross and Garrison simultaneously. Kross went for a springboard move off the top rope, but Hendry caught him with a Codebreaker. Castle followed with Denouement on Kross for the win.
Video package: The PJ Black-Brian Johnson story
The tenuous partnership between Black and his reluctant protege was chronicled. After Black finally convinced Johnson to allow him to be his mentor, the duo defeated Master and Machine in a tag match. Backstage after the match, Johnson took all the credit for the win (even though it was mostly due to Black).

Rhett Titus vs. Danhausen
The bizarre, entertaining Danhausen nearly pulled off the upset after dumping his jar of teeth into Titus’ mouth and nailing him with a superkick, but Titus kicked out at two. Titus answered with a spectacular dropkick right on the button for the victory.
Jeff Cobb and Dan Maff vs. LifeBlood (Mark Haskins and Tracy Williams) vs. Jay and Mark Briscoe
The sheer power of Cobb and Maff was on display, as were the high-flying and submission skills of Haskins and Williams. In the end, however, it was the 11-time former ROH World Tag Team Champion Briscoes who came out on top after Jay Briscoe hit Jay Driller on Williams.
