Bully Ray Addresses Whether He and The Briscoes Are On The Same Page
Bully Ray told the crowd he’s been a fan of ROH since Day One, and when he got to ROH he knew he wanted to be part of The Briscoe Brothers’ team because they are the best tag team in ROH history. He said Jay Briscoe has been a little crazy as of late, but at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 22 in Las Vegas, he and Jay and Mark Briscoe will be on the same page. Bully Ray said they will beat The Kingdom and go on to regain the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Titles later that night against Bullet Club’s Young Bucks and Adam Page.
Will Ferrara Vows “World of Hurt” For Cheeseburger
Ferrara said that every time Cheeseburger dropped the ball it negatively affected him, and he can’t progress with Cheeseburger in his way. “The only thing left for you in Ring of Honor is a world of hurt,” Ferrara said of his former friend and tag team partner.
Cheeseburger vs. Will Ferrara
While Cheeseburger waited in the ring for Ferrara to make his entrance, Ferrara hit the ring from the other side and attacked him from behind before the bell. Cheeseburger was ready for it, however, and he was all over Ferrara in the early going. Ferrara eventually gained the upper hand and appeared to have the victory secured after hitting a flatliner, but Cheeseburger managed to kick out, which stunned Ferrara and pleasantly surprised an enthusiastic pro-Cheeseburger crowd. Cheeseburger rallied and hit a tombstone piledriver, but Ferrara proved equally resilient by kicking out. Cheeseburger followed up with a double stomp off the top rope and made a cover, but Ferrara got his foot on the bottom rope at the last second. Ferrara halted Cheeseburger’s momentum with a wicked clothesline and then choked him out for the submission win. After the match, Ferrara applied the chokehold again, but Rhett Titus came out to break it up. A brief shoving match between Ferrara and Titus ensued before they both took turns putting the boots to Cheeseburger. Was this the formation of a new alliance between Ferrara and Titus, or do they just share a dislike of Cheeseburger?
Coleman’s Pulpit Is Ready To Go
Caprice Coleman stood on his new set for Coleman’s Pulpit and said ROH management must have been impressed with his interview with The Addiction last week. Coleman said he will ask the questions other interviews are afraid to ask, and he encouraged fans to send in questions using “#ColemansPulpit” that they would like him to ask on future installments of his show.
Jay Lethal vs. Silas Young In Last Man Standing Match Announced For Death Before Dishonor
After the brutal street fight between Lethal and Young in Edinburgh, Scotland during ROH’s War of the Worlds UK Tour last month ended with both men requiring medical attention, a Last Man Standing Match between the two bitters rivals has been signed for Death Before Dishonor.
Silas Young (w/Beer City Bruiser) vs. Cauliflower Chase Brown
“The Last Real Man in Professional Wrestling” made quick work of Brown, as he hit Misery for a decisive victory. After the match, Young mounted Brown and repeatedly punched him. Lethal came out to make the save and went after Young, but security got between them, allowing Young to retreat to the stage. Lethal challenged Young to get back in the ring to settle things now instead of waiting for Death Before Dishonor. Young declined, saying that Lethal is used to getting everything he wants, but he’s going to wait until the pay-per-view so that everyone can see that he deserves all the opportunities that are given to Lethal. Young said he will be the “last real man standing.”
Marty Scurll Accepts Challenge For Death Before Dishonor
Scurll, who was sitting in on commentary this week, officially accepted the challenge of “The Kentucky Gentleman” Chuckie T. for a match at Death Before Dishonor.
Backstage Interview With ROH World Champion Cody
Cody was asked for his thoughts regarding his upcoming defense of the ROH World Title against the dangerous Minoru Suzuki at Death Before Dishonor. Cody said he has done everything possible to prepare for the match, and he questioned if Suzuki can say the same. When asked if he was having second thoughts about issuing an open challenge since Suzuki ended up being the one who answered it, Cody said he doesn’t regret it one bit. Cody concluded the interview by making backstage correspondent Matt Sells kiss his ring.
Video Highlight: Bullet Club Attacks Dalton Castle in UK
During the War of the Worlds UK Tour in Edinburgh, Bullet Club (The Young Bucks, Page and Scurll) came across a despondent Castle in the hallway of the arena. They taunted Castle about him and The Boys losing the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title to the Bucks and Page earlier that night. After Bullet Club exited, Cody came up behind Castle and attacked him. The night before in Liverpool, Castle confronted Cody in the ring and said he wanted an ROH World Title shot. Apparently, this was Cody’s response. Cody threw Castle out of the arena and continued to assault him. Satisfied with the beat-down, Cody called Castle a “novelty act” and exited.
Search & Destroy (Motor City Machine Guns, Jay White and Jonathan Gresham) vs. Bullet Club (Young Bucks and Guerrillas of Destiny)
Bullet Club controlled the action early, but a brief miscommunication between G.O.D.’s Tama Tonga and Tanga Roa allowed Search & Destroy to gain the upper hand. The two innovative quartets went on to trade high-flying and high-impact maneuvers at a furious pace. Bullet Club regained the advantage and set up for the Meltzer Driver on MCMG’s Chris Sabin. White, however, yanked Nick Jackson off the apron to prevent it. Sabin and Alex Shelley then hit a series of doubleteam moves on Matt Jackson to finish him off and pick up a huge, statement-making victory. MCMG now has a lot of momentum heading into their title match against ROH World Tag Team Champions The Young Bucks at Death Before Dishonor.
