Welcome to Wrestling Inc's coverage of Ring of Honor TV! This week we'll see a World Television Title match, in addition to big tag match between the Killer Elite Squad and War Machine!
Killer Elite Squad (Davey Boy Smith Jr & Lance Archer) vs. War Machine
The two teams start brawling after shaking hands, and the ref can't do anything. This could possible be the two largest teams to compete against each other in ROH in the past several years. Michael Elgin is ringside for this match.
Finally we gain some order, and the Killer Elite Squad work over Hanson. Archer sends Rowe out of the ring and they continue to beat down Hanson. Elgin is visibly rooting for KES throughout this match.
Hasnson gets the hot tag, and Rowe lands a suplex. Smith prevents another, but War Machine hits Fallout. While they go for a pin, Archer pulls the ref out of the ring. Hanson gets tired of Elgin and takes him out with a dive as KES beat up Rowe.
Hanson comes back to make the save as the ref is completely buried by mass. Archer with a chokeslam on Rowe and the ref ends the match, and it doesn't go over well with the crowd.
Result: No Contest
Everyone brawls, including Elgin after the match. Security comes out to help but don't do much good.
ROH World Television Title
Jay Lethal (c) (w/ Truth Martini & Donovan Dijak) vs. Tommaso Ciampa
ROH goes to a commercial after the tale of the tape, and we come back to the match going on. Lethal goes for a quick pin that doesn't work, and Ciampa gains control. He works over Lethal until going outside after Martini. This allows Lethal to land his three straight dives as we go to another commercial break.
Lethal runs things throughout the entire next segment until Ciampa suplexes him. Ciampa follows up with a big knee that has Lethal reeling. Outside Ciamps beats Lethal from pillar to post, even using the Samoa Joe running knee.
Back in the ring the two go back and forth with punches, and end up laid out. Martini tries to toss his book in the ring to Lethal, but Ciampa prevents it. Lethal hits a neckbreaker anyway, but Ciampa manages to kick out at two. The crowd is going nuts.
Ciampa blocks Lethal Combination and locks on the Sicilian Stretch. Lethal gets to the ropes after a lengthy struggle. Ciampa goes to suplex Lethal, but Martini pulls a Warrior/Rude on him and grabs the leg. Ciampa catches Lethal mid-dive and slams him outside, before hitting a top rope sidewalk slam inside. He almost gets the three, but Martini pulls the ref out.
Ciampa runs outside but gets booted in the grill by Dijak. Lethal gets a 2.9 out of that, but Ciampa scores a dive outside on Dijak. Back in the ring he gets a two count and Dijak & Martini try to intervene again. The ref sends them to the back, but Lethal hits a low blow and Lethal Injection to finish it.
Winner: Jay Lethal via pinfall (Lethal Injection) to retain the ROH World Television Title
Ciampa gets a ton of cheers from the crowd, as most know he's leaving ROH. He blasts Todd Sinclair in the balls and knees him five times in a row as streamers fly in. The story has been that he'll be fired if he touches an official, so that's it.
