Ring Of Honor TV Recap (9/7): Jay Lethal Vs. Roderick Strong World Title Match, Tag Title Match

Welcome to Wrestling Inc's coverage of Ring of Honor TV. This week's episode is a championship edition, featuring a World title match and an ROH tag title match.

- The show kicks off with Jay Lethal and Roderick Strong cutting backstage promos about their world title match tonight.

ROH World Tag Team Championship
Addiction (c) (w/ Chris Sabin) vs. Young Bucks

The Bucks go after Addiction early, but Sabin pulls Daniels out of the ring and gets ejected immediately. Superkick #1 to Sabin before he can leave, and Daniels begs off in the ring. It doesn't work, as he eats Superkick #2. Kaz slingshots in the ring and takes out Matt with a DDT as we go to our first commercial break.

We come back to see Matt Jackson getting worked over by Addiction, as the champions are cutting off the ring to keep Matt from making the tag. Nick fights out of a bodylock and hits a nice corkscrew stunner from the corner. Nick gets the hot tag and takes Addiction out with a swinging DDT to the floor and a slingshot facebuster. Kaz eats a Cannonball an an assisted Swanton, but Daniels breaks up the count. Kaz also gets Superkick #3.

Daniels goes for a BME, but gets kicked. Kaz gets a slingshot cutter, then walks right into Superkick #4. Daniels gets up and lands a suicide dive on Nick, but then Kingdom comes out and jumps Daniels. Superkick #5 sets up a buckle bomb enziguri, but when Nick goes for the Indytaker, he moonsaults onto Kingdom. They hit the Indytaker, but Kingdom pulls the ref out of the ring.

Nick punts Taven, but Daniels cracks him in the face with a belt. Matt with Superkick #6 on Daniels and blasts Daniels and Taven with the title. Maria is on the apron distracting Matt, and Kaz scores the roll up with the tights for the win.

Winners: The Addiction via pinfall to retain the ROH World Tag Team Championship

Nigel McGuinness says this doesn't work for him, and the Young Bucks still deserve a title shot. He says the Young Bucks are added to the Kingdom vs. Addiction tag title match at All-Star Extravaganza. That will be insane.

- We see this week's episode of Inside ROH.

ROH World Championship
Jay Lethal (c) (w/ House of Truth) vs. Roderick Strong

The two shake hands and adhere the Code of Honor, but won't let go. They do and start brawling immediately. The two have each other scouted very well. Lethal goes for his triple crash and burn, but Strong slides in and dropkicks him after number one.

We come back from a commercial to see the two brawling outside the ring. Strong attacks Diesel and Dijak, but gets kicked in the face by Lethal, as the numbers game is coming into play. Strong is busted open hardway, and Lethal works over a sleeper for an extended period of time. Strong tries to fight back, but Lethal tosses him outside where Dijak attacks Strong before the commercial break.

As we come back, we see Strong land about 20 chops to the chest of Lethal. Strong then turns Lethal inside out with a slam, but only gets a two count. Strong misses with a knee, which allows Lethal to get a two count of his own from Lethal Combination. Strong knocks Lethal down and hits his own version of Hail to the King for two.

Both men make it to their knees and strike it out. The two end up all the way up on the top rope, where Strong hits a superplex. Strong rolls through and gets cradled, but kicks out. Strong counters the Lethal Injection with a Sick Kick for two as we go to our last commercial.

We return, and Lethal superkicks Strong, then chokes him with his wrist tape. The ref admonishes Lethal, and Lethal cracks Strong with the title and Lethal Injection. Strong kicks out at two! That whole place erupted. Lethal hits another Lethal Injection for the win. Great match.

Winner: Jay Lethal via pinfall (Lethal Injection) to retain the ROH World Championship
