ROH Recap: Young Bucks and Adam Page vs. The Briscoes and Bully Ray


ROH World Champion Cody announces stipulation for title rematch with Christopher Daniels

Cody reiterated that he still hasn’t signed a contract with ROH and does not wrestle exclusively for the company. The champion said the Rhodes family owns the ROH World Title, not Sinclair Broadcasting. Cody said he know some critics don’t think he fits the “Honor style,” but he’s going to prove them wrong because his championship rematch against Daniels will be a two-out-of-three falls match. As Cody spoke, the crowd was solidly behind him, while every mention of Daniels elicited jeers.

Jonathan Gresham vs. Punishment Martinez

The 6-foot-6, 272-pound Martinez  had a size advantage of 14 inches and nearly 100 pounds, but Gresham employed a sound strategy throughout the match by attacking Martinez’s lower body. The Search and Destroy member successfully slowed down his larger foe, but the malevolent Martinez ultimately proved too much for Gresham and finished him off with the Psycho Driver. Martinez continued his assault on Gresham after the match until Martinez’s nemesis, Jay White, made the save. White and Gresham double-teamed Martinez, forcing the big man to retreat.

Exclusive Women of Honor episode announcement; Silas Young interrupts

Mandy Leon broke the news that an exclusive Women of Honor episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling” will air in two weeks. Young rudely interrupted and said no one cares about women’s wrestling. Young demanded that Mandy hold up his “Jay Lethal is off TV” board. He updated the board to reflect that it’s now been 22 days since the injured Lethal has been on ROH TV.

Tempura Boyz (Sho and Yo) vs. Cheeseburger and Joey Daddiego

Despite the Tempura Boyz having more experience as a team, the popular, unorthodox tandem of Cheeseburger and Daddiego was hitting on all cylinders. Cheeseburger capped off an impressive victory for him and Daddiego by nailing Yo with Shotay,  a move taught to him by the legendary Jushin “Thunder” Liger.” After the match, a couple overzealous female fans hopped the rail and celebrated with Cheeseburger until security escorted them to the back, with Daddiego following them up the ramp. One member of security lagged behind, however, and revealed himself to be Will Ferrara. Ferrara attacked Cheeseburger from behind and roughed him up until Daddiego came back and ran him off.

Bullet Club’s Young Bucks (Matt and Nick Jackson) and Adam Page vs. The Briscoes (Jay and Mark) and Bully Ray

The Bullet Club trio dominated the early stages of the match, but the former ROH World Six-Man Tag Team champions rallied and had the momentum until referee Todd Sinclair got caught in the corner when Bully Ray delivered a splash to the Bucks and Page. The Briscoes and Bully Ray hit 3D on Page, but Sinclair was temporarily incapacitated and unable to make the count when Jay Briscoe covered Page. Referee Paul Turner came out to take over the officiating, but he found himself on an inadvertent double superkick from the Bucks. With both referees down, “The Villain” Marty Scurll hit the ring and nailed Jay Briscoe from behind with his umbrella. Page rolled on top of Jay, and Sinclair recovered to make the three count. An enraged Jay and Mark Briscoe took out their frustration after the match by roughing up members of security. Bully Ray looked none too pleased as he watched his partners’ meltdown.
