Ring of Honor

Recommended Posts

I tried out the diary thing a few years ago, but I was forced to stop because of school, and other obligations. I have some free time, and I like to chronicle EWR (RoH mainly) anyway, so hey, why not?


Backstory. Part 1.

12:30 am. Tuesday, August 1, 2006.

It is early in the morning as Gabe Sapolsky is sitting in the office of his home, kicking back in a leather chair, watching a television in the corner of the room. He is watching tapes from Ring of Honor’s past show from July 29. He watches as Ring of Honor World Champion Bryan Danielson applies and illegal hold to Ring of Honor Pure Wrestling Champion Nigel McGuinness. Bryan Danielson lets go, and tells the referee that he has until five. Gabe chuckles and shakes his head.

The telephone on his desk rings. Gabe tilts his head, staring at the phone. He leans forward and answers.

Gabe: "Hello?"

Vince McMahon: "Hello Gabe, it’s Vince. McMahon."

Gabe: "Mr. McMahon! What do I owe the pleasure?"

Vince: "TNA. That's what!"

Gabe: "Um, what about them?"

Vince: "I’m tired of them getting in my way and taking cheap shots at my company on their second rate television show!"

Gabe: "But sir, why are you calling me?"

Vince: "Well, Sapolsky, I've always liked you and your promotion. I've lent you Dreamer, Richards, Foley, and Punk, just to help you out. Well, now, I want my back scratched."

Gabe: "I’m listening."

Vince: "I’m going to give you some leverage. And with this leverage, I want you to kill TNA."

Gabe: "What kind of leverage are we talking about?"

Vince: "Ninety million dollars."

Gabe: "Holy s***."

Vince: "Don’t make me regret this, Sapolsky, or it's your a**!"

And with that, Vince hangs up the phone, leaving Gabe sitting there, phone in hand, in stunned silence.


This is just my first post. I'll do Part 2 in a few minutes once I finish it. Any suggestions and such is welcome and appreciated.

Within the next twenty four hours, Gabe Sapolsky had made many phone calls and sent out many contracts. With his newfound money, Gabe had signed practically everyone on his current roster to written, exclusive contracts.

He also used the money to improve the RoH training camp’s facilities, and to open a development camp as well. He raised production levels, advertisement, and also merchandising.

There were, however, some wrestlers who turned down written contracts. Those included: AJ Styles, Chris Sabin, Alex Shelley, and Christopher Daniels. They pledged their allegiance to TNA and turned down the offers. They did opt to stay with Ring of Honor, though.

Some, however, accepted the contracts. They were: Homicide, Roderick Strong, Austin Aries, and Samoa Joe.

Three TNA stars, though, were stolen by Ring of Honor and signed to written contracts. Rhino, Low Ki and Jerry Lynn.

Some independent stars were also signed to written contracts. Steve Corino, Donovan Morgan, Michael Modest, and a man Gabe was scouting while in Florida, a virtual unknown, Rhando.

Now, with fifty five workers on the roster and more to come, Gabe set his sights on rising in the ranks, and completing the objective: Destroy Total Nonstop Action.

But, when the time comes, will Gabe graciously bow out to the McMahon family, or go to war with the biggest tyrant in sports entertainment history? Only time will tell...


Information, such as roster soon to follow.

RoH Testing The Limit

Saturday, August 12, 2006

(Large show)

RoH World Champion Bryan Danielson vs. Samoa Joe.

In Cage of Death, Bryan Danielson took a cheap shot by clipping Joe’s knee. Joe had to be carried out of the match. Joe is a big Samoan, so he’s obviously offended. Four words for Mr. Danielson: Joe’s Gonna Kill You!

RoH World Tag-Team Champions Aries & Strong vs. Briscoe Brothers

On 7/29, Aries and Strong retained their titles after a second ultimate endurance match by pinning the Briscoes in the finals. The Briscoes, being number one contenders for lasting until the finals, have been awarded a straight rematch. Can they become three time RoH World Tag-Team Champions?

RoH Pure Wrestling Champion Nigel McGuinnes vs. Jerry Lynn

In March 2004, Nigel McGuinness wrestled Jerry Lynn in a great pure wrestling match which Lynn barely won. Now, two years later, is the rematch, but with the Pure Wrestling Championship on the line!

Four Corner Survival: Homicide vs. Low Ki vs. Steve Corino vs. Colt Cabana

Rivalries are renewed in this one as Homicide is once again in a ring with both Steve Corino and Colt Cabana! This could turn out to be the best four corner survival in RoH history!

AJ Styles & Christopher Daniels vs. Donovan Morgan & Michael Modest

The TNA Tag-Team Champions take on Donovan Morgan, one half of the first RoH World Tag-Team Champions, and Michael Modest. Ironically, Christopher Daniels was Morgan’s partner when they were crowned first RoH World Tag-Team Champions.

KENTA & Chris Sabin vs. Rhino & Alex Shelley

KENTA has decided to take Chris Sabin under his wing as they face two of the best Scott D’Amore has ever produced!

Others scheduled to appear: Chris Hero, Rhando, Jimmy Rave & Prince Nana of The Embassy, Delirious, Jack Evans, & more!

RoH Testing The Limit

Saturday, August 12, 2006

Announcers: Dave Prazak & Jimmy Bower

Opening Contest

Dark Match

Pelle Primeau vs. Shane Hagadorn

Both men start with counter holds, followed by a series of arm drags. The fans in attendance show their support for the young students as they continue to try to hone their skills. Shortly into the match, though, a short, stalky, long haired behemoth runs into the ring. This man is Rhando, the virtual unknown from Florida. Rhando quickly nails little Pelle Preimeau with his signature finishing move, the F*** F*** Gore. Rhando then nails Shane Hagadorn with a vicious lariat. The referee throws the match out, calling for a no contest due to the interference. Rhando isn’t done, however. Rhando picks up Pelle Primeau and nails him with a unique cradle backbreaker. Shane Hagadorn staggers to his feet, Rhando quickly takes him down. Rhando stands over Shane Hagadorn, hammerlocks Hagadorn’s left arm, grabs Hagadorn’s arm and head, and wrenches on all the appendages at the same time in a very obscure submission hold. After a full thirty seconds, the vicious Rhando releases the hold and rolls out of the ring as the crowd in attendance boos the hell out of the crazy new comer. Rhando tells them all to “F*** themselves” as he walks back through the curtain.

Final Result: Draw

Overall Rating: 27%

Main Show

KENTA & Chris Sabin vs. Rhino & Alex Shelley

The sounds of 311 fill the venue as Chris Sabin and KENTA enter the arena. KENTA walks through the curtain and is met with a thunderous ovation, as always. Six Barrel Shotgun begins to play as Alex Shelley and Rhino enter the arena to quite a lot of booing from the capacity crowd. The bell rings, and Chris Sabin and Alex Shelley start us off. Chris Sabin starts off with lightning quick kicks to the side of Alex Shelley’s leg, followed up by a quick DDT for just a two count. Sabin hauls Shelley to his feet and attempts a suplex, but Shelley blocks it and gets some payback by hitting Sabin with a DDT of his own. Shelley taunts Sabin as Sabin staggers to his feet. Shelley then superkicks Sabin right in the jaw and Sabin goes down hard. Shelley pulls Sabin to his corner and tags out to the Man Best, Rhino! Rhino comes in and whips Sabin off the ropes and drills Sabin with his signature spinebuster. Rhino turns to play to the crowd, as they begin duel chanting. “Let’s go Sabin!” “Let’s go Rhino!” Sabin stumbles to his feet in the corner. Rhino charges in, looking for the running shoulder to the gut, but Sabin leaps over Rhino and rolls to his corner, making the tag to KENTA. The crowd explodes as KENTA enters the ring and kicks Rhino right in the mouth. KENTA bounces off the ropes and nails a leg lariat. Rhino gets up again, and KENTA nails a running neckbreaker. KENTA covers, but Rhino is out at two. KENTA goes out onto the ring apron and climbs the turnbuckles. Rhino gets up and nails a flying elbow strike to the jaw. KENTA tags out to Chris Sabin. Sabin hooks Rhino up from behind, KENTA nails a roundhouse kick, and Sabin nails a tiger suplex on Rhino and the fans applaud the double team maneuver. Sabin covers Rhino, but only for a two count. Sabin grabs Rhino in a reverse chin lock, trying to force the former ECW star to tap out. Rhino begins powering out of the hold, getting to his feet. Rhino nails some stiff back elbows to the ribs, and nails a knee left to the nose of Sabin. Rhino then clotheslines Sabin, practically out of his boots. Alex Shelley reaches in and tags himself in. Shelley immediately knocks KENTA off the ring apron. Shelley then grabs Sabin and nails his clothesline, which also drops the back of Sabin’s neck across his knee. KENTA then comes back in, but Rhino is there to meet him with a GORE! As the referee tries to dispose of Rhino, Sabin regains the upperhand and tries for the Cradle Shock! But Alex Shelley drops down on the mat behind Sabin, and nails a dastardly low blow! Alex Shelley rolls Sabin up and pulls on the tights as the referee turns back around and administers the three count! The fans begin booing as Shelley gets up and celebrates the victory with Rhino.

Final Result: Rhino & Shelley, pinfall

Overall Rating: 82%

Four Corner Survival

As the crowd calms after the first match, Jim Cornette, enters the arena to a very mixed reaction, due to his actions at Death Before Dishonor. If you do not known, Cornette offered Homicide three wishes if Homicide would be on Team RoH for Cage of Death. Homicide joined RoH during the match and saved RoH by getting the pinfall victory for Team RoH. After the match, Homicide asked for his three wishes. Steve Corino in an RoH ring. Granted. A World Title shot. Granted. Low Ki back in RoH. Denied. After denying his request, Homicide got hostile, and Cornette, JJ Dillon, and Adam Pearce beat down the Notorious 187 in a shocking turn of events. Jim Cornette enters the ring with a microphone.

Cornette: “Now, I’m sure you all were excited, and yet confused by the match I announced for this evening. I have decided that I was wrong! I did a terrible thing at Death Before Dishonor! I lied to Homicide after he single handedly saved Ring of Honor from CZW! I denied his third and final wish, and that was wrong of me. So, Homicide, please, come to this ring right now so I can apologize to you!

Homicide’s music hits, and the fans beat on the steel guard rails as he and Julius Smokes enter the arena. Smokes is playing it up, snarling and making weird noises, but Homicide looks very reluctant. Homicide walks down to ringside and rolls into the ring to lock eyes with the RoH commissioner.

Cornette: “Homicide, I want to personally apologize for lying to you, and kicking your ass at Death Before Dishonor.”

Homicide looks down and smirks, not appreciating Cornette’s words.

Cornette: “But Homicide. I want to apologize for something else. Lying to you again. I love how gullible you are, always turning your back!”

And with that, Adam Pearce and Steve Corino roll into the ring and attack Homicide. They then put to the boots to him as the fans begin chanting for Low Ki, who obviously was only “booked” to lure Homicide into a false sense of security. Suddenly, Colt Cabana runs down to the ring and runs off Pearce and Corino, much to the delight of the fans.

Cornette: “Just hold on one second, Colt Cabana! What do you think you’re doing?!”

Cabana stands near the ropes and yells something about not standing idly by as this crap happens.

Cornette: “Oh, so you’re gonna try and be some savior and watch Homicide’s back even after he tried to kill you? That’s just fine! Get in my business, Cabana, and you’re gonna pay! Let’s have ourselves a tag match, right here, right now!”

Overall Segment Rating: 82%

Colt Cabana & Homicide vs. Adam Pearce

Colt Cabana backs up as Steve Corino and Adam Pearce get onto the ring apron. Adam Pearce comes into the ring, and Colt Cabana meets him with wild rights and lefts, going to town on Pearce. Cabana then begins nailing several knee strikes to the head of Pearce. Cabana hits a short powerbomb. Cabana decides not to cover him, but to stomp away on Pearce’s body. The referee tries to pull Colt off of Pearce, but Colt shrugs him off. Cabana pulls Pearce to his feet, but Pearce rakes Cabana’s eyes. Pearce drives Cabana into his corner and tags out to Corino. Corino comes in and nails multiple chops on Cabana. Corino hooks Cabana up and nails a snap suplex. Corino goes for a cover, but Cabana kicks out at two. Corino walks over and lifts himself onto the second turnbuckle. Corino jumps off, looking for a stomp to the leg, but Cabana moves his legs, and drop toe holds Corino to the mat. Cabana and Corino get back to their feet, and Cabana nails a dropkick. Corino staggers backwards. Cabana gets to his feet. Corino charges. Colt ducks under it, rolls forward, and tags in Homicide! Homicide runs in and nails a running dropkick to the mouth of Corino. Homicide then nails Pearce, knocking him off the apron. Homicide then nails a leg drop to the back of Corino’s head. Homicide covers Corino, but Corino kicks out at two. Pearce then tries to come into the ring, but the referee stops him.

Cabana then gets angry at this and comes in as well. Cabana then clotheslines himself and Corino out of the ring to the floor! Pearce pulls Homicide to his feet and arrogantly signals for his finishing piledriver. Homicide, though, counters out of it and sets up Pearce for the Cop Killa! But Pearce counters into a roll up and grabs the bottom rope. Cabana tries to come back in, but is too late, as the referee administers the three count.

Final Result: Adam Pearce & Steve Corino, pinfall

Overall Rating: 78%

RoH Pure Wrestling Championship

Nigel McGuinness© vs. Jerry Lynn

Sounds of heavy metal fill the arena as Jerry Lynn enters the arena to a great ovation as well as a “Welcome Back” chant from the crowd. Oasis hits and the Pure Wrestling Champion, Nigel McGuinness, struts down the ring with his signature iron in hand. The match starts slowly as Lynn and Nigel feel each other out. They begin to apply standing submissions, only to counter one another. They begin to take each other down, other to counter out of each other’s moves some more.

Jerry Lynn then nails Nigel McGuinness with a springboard back blow as Nigel got back to his feet. Nigel rolls to the corner and holds onto it. Lynn comes over and tries to pry him away, but Nigel holds on, and the referee takes away another rope break from Nigel. Lynn begins arguing with the referee to make McGuinness move. Nigel finally gets up, and tosses a turnbuckle cover out of the ring, as he has exposed the steel ring under the middle turnbuckle. Lynn comes at Nigel, but McGuinness pulls Lynn face first into the steel ring. Lynn staggers and Nigel rolls him up, and the referee counts three.

RoH Unscripted

Saturday, September 16, 2006

(Large Show)

RoH World Champion Bryan Danielson vs. Samoa Joe

Joe petitioned to get this rematch, stating that Danielson couldn’t beat him straight up, and RoH match makers granted him this rematch! Can Joe finally become the first ever two-time RoH World Champion?

AJ Styles & Jerry Lynn vs. Christopher Daniels & Donovan Morgan

At Testing The Limit, Daniels turned on Styles and reformed The Prophecy. Daniels and Morgan (without the injured Michael Modest) challenged AJ Styles to a match, IF he could find a partner! Styles then called someone, the man he won the TNA Tag-Team Championship with: Jerry Lynn! Can Jerry Lynn help Styles in his fight against The Prophecy? Or will Daniels and Morgan, the first RoH World Tag-Team Champions, be too much for the first TNA Tag-Team Champions?

Austin Aries w/Roderick Strong vs. Jay Briscoe w/Mark Briscoe

Another chapter in the ongoing feud between Generation Next and the Briscoes continues as the former RoH World Champion faces off against the eldest Briscoe in this one-on-one encounter!

RoH Pure Wrestling Champion Nigel McGuinness vs. Colt Cabana

After Testing The Limit, Nigel McGuinness openly mocked his long-time rival, Colt Cabana, for being on the losing end while Nigel was on the winning end. Cabana then called Nigel out, and Nigel accepted. However, Nigel told Cabana that he will not defend his title because he sees Cabana as a loser, and feels that losers don’t deserve title shots.

KENTA, Chris Sabin, & Homicide vs. Rhino, Alex Shelley, & Steve Corino

Two feuds combine in this highly volatile six man tag-team match! KENTA and Sabin want some payback for being cheated out of a victory at Testing The Limit, and Homicide, obviously, wants Corino dead! Will ANYONE survive this encounter?

Also scheduled to appear: Chris Hero, Adam Pearce, The Embassy, Rhando, Jack Evans, Matt Sydal, Claudio Castagnoli, & more!

This is alright for a pretty straightforward RoH diary, but it certainly doesn't explain why Vince McMahon has 90 million dollars he can just give away. I mean, that opening premise is so much dumber than the "I just won the lottery, so now I can book wrestling shows," that it's impossible to take the diary seriously.

Looking at your production values, advertising, and merchandising costs, it becomes clear why you need the ridiculous sum of money; you're losing thousands, maybe in the millions, every month, aren't you? Even if you signed every RoH guy on a written contract and ran 3 tv shows a week, you still wouldn't make enough to pay the egregious amounts you're spending.

I think if you're going to do an RoH diary, it should be RoH, not some 90 million dollar gift from Vince McMahon to end a promotion that's not even in direct competition with his product.

Not to mention, do you really think Vince had much to do with the appearances of guys like Punk or Foley in RoH?

I mean, everything else seems realistic and down to earth, so why the one, glaring, completely unrealistic aspect? It doesn't separate this from the other RoH diaries because you haven't shown how you're spending all this money, and it just makes the diary seem like a joke.

He's right it seems unrealistic. While the dome is for creative things that throw realism aside, this just seems too far out there. The unrealistic parts are supposed to be like feuds you would never see in WWE or just starting your own promotion. It is hard to take seriously, but other than that it rings true to a RoH style. Good luck.

Eh, I can't really defend the beginning. I had no other beginning to go on that hadn't been used yet. I was really just going for something off the wall and different. And yeah...I should have thought I through a little better. But hey, what's done is done. I'm really just focussing on the shows now, instead on the...well...lackluster beginning.

Good, one key to writing a good diary is to make up for things you may not be so good at, like in this case, a backstory. So if you make up for it in your shows, then everything should be fine.

Right then, I'm going to ignore the background premise of Vince McMahon just giving you a bandle of cash, ruffling your hair and telling you to 'go get 'em tiger' and concentrate on what you've actually done in the diary so far.

  • Using the money to pump up your stats is fair enough, but it just seems like cheating to me as your PI in the game will just continue to rise with ease. Even with 90 million in the bank, RoH wouldn't go straight to the same sort of production values as the WWE, predominately due to the style of the company and the size of the venues they run.
  • The signings of any of the TNA talent is rather unrealistic as the majority of those guys are actually under contract with the company and would not be able to just sign with RoH full time, particularly if RoH had just suddenly become a bigger threat to them.
  • Rhino in RoH? He doesn't seem the sort of guy they would go for in my eyes.
  • I doubt Corino would join up full time either due to his commentments in Japan and the rest of the world.
  • At least you didn't just release everyone you didn't like or doesn't have good stats (Y)

RoH Testing The Limit

  • KENTA just being in a throw away tag match just reeks of you using him because he has good stats. KENTA is built up as a major threat to Danielson and other top line stars, he used sparringly in the company mainly because he is a NOAH regularly and when he does wrestle in RoH it is a very big deal. Disappointing use of him here.
  • Same with Rhino really, you've just stolen one of TNA's bigger names, a guy who was being steadily pushed in the company and you debut him in a throwaway match.
  • Styles predominately teams with Matt Sydal in RoH doing their student/teacher thing, I doubt RoH would want to use a TNA team in their company.
  • The rest of the card looks pretty good in my eyes.
  1. Pelle Primeau vs. Shane Hagadorn - Ugh. Student matches are usually allowed to go the distance as the whole idea of them is to get the guys used to working in front of a crowd. Hagadorn is pretty protected as well as he is only real heel of the first class of RoH students from what I've seen. This new fellow, Rhando seems like a Rhino ripoff, which is weird as you actually have Rhino on your roster now. Nothing really to say about the match as it didn't do anything or go anywhere.
  2. KENTA & Chris Sabin vs. Rhino & Alex Shelley - Okay... Why isn't Shelley with the Embassy? If he's back with the company surely he'd be back in The Embassy? Has Rhino joined or is Shelley just tagging with someone from his old training school? Why is KENTA teaming with Sabin anyway? NOAH guys usually come over in pairs and KENTA generally comes over with Marifuji. I can't really see RoH fans getting behind Rhino, although at least you included those dumbass duelling chants they always do. Rhino and Shelley going over is interesting, at least it wasn't KENTA that took the fall. I'm guessing this is leading up to a rematch, so it all seems fair enough.
  3. Nice angle with Corny/Corino/Pearce and Cabana helping Homicide is nice work after the finish to their feud. Although why didn't Julius Smokes try and help out Homicide?
  4. Colt Cabana & Homicide vs. Adam Pearce You missed out Steve Corino - Starting the show off with two tag matches seems very strange, particularly as they take a very similar formula. Infact they both have the same ending, which sucks. I understand the need to get heat on the heels without the faces looking weak but you need to think of new ways. Hell there is nothing wrong with faces losing clean falls every now and again, it makes the heels look like a threat.
  5. Jerry Lynn Vs. Nigel McGuinness © - Jerry Lynn generally comes out to 'Scapegoat' by Fear Factory. The rope break system didn't really seem to go anywhere in the match, but then it generally doesn't in a lot of RoH matches, so I guess that can be forgiven, nice to see you hadn't forgotten about it though. Nobody really seems to get going in the match, nobody hits any big moves or any of their signatures and the ending seems to come out of nowhere and is yet another varient on the finish that we have seen in the first two matches. Very poor.
  6. A nothing GMC promo there, just like real life :lol: Ki back in the company will be interesting though.
  7. Austin Aries & Roderick Strong© vs. Jay & Mark Briscoe - I'm not a fan of the Briscoes, so I'm pulling for the champs here. A nice exchange of big moves here but it doesn't really go anywhere. Nice to the champs retain, although I doubt its then end of the Briscoes chase for the titles.
  8. Delirious vs. Chris Hero vs. Jimmy Rave vs. Jack Evans - Pretty much a throwaway match here, nothing overly spectacular happens. Nice use of Sal though and it was good to see Rave pick up the victory.
  9. AJ Styles & Christopher Daniels vs. Donovan Morgan & Michael Modest - Basically the whole match is a set up for the return of the Prophecy, which I'm sure Daniels said he was never going to reform in a promo a while back, but eh, I'm not entirely sure on that note. Anyway, people beating up AJ Styles is always a good thing.
  10. Bryan Danielson© vs. Samoa Joe - Ugh, you actually had a really good match going here until the finish. I mean the finish wasn't bad its just that its now the fourth time that its been used on this show and its really beginning to suck. Danielson winning by a Small Package or a roll-up without cheating would have been a fine finish as he has won a lot of close matches like that and he's seen as only just managing to squeak out a win over people. But like I said, barring the finish that was a good match, in fact it was so good the fans even forgot to chant 'This is awesome' for a while and actually watched the match. :shifty:


  • Overall, I'd say it wasn't a bad show. Some of the wrestler's placements on the card seemed a little off, but not everyone can be in the main event, so it can be overlooked. I'd personally like to see the major matches go a little longer and more in-depth, as with some of the matches, particularly the Lynn/McGuinness match, things seemed rushed and little actually seemed to happen before the finish. Anyway, I'm sure things will begin to improve here as this seems to have a good grounding for a diary, for now though you get **/*****

Trust me, I'd like to make the matches more in depth, but if I did that, they'd be TOO long. I moreso just toyed with "spot reviews" from each one. I'm already taking a different approach to the next show, as I wasn't really digging the way the first was written, either.

And I'm not really using KENTA the way RoH has to use him, which is every few months. He's not going anywhere until I become Global, so I can use him every show. Might as well have him work with some others.

Shelley and Rave showed dissention towards the end of April due to their loss to Aries & Strong, and with Sal joining The Embassy, it's obvious they've given up on him.

I, too, hated my own booking with so many heels cheating to win, but I needed to just get them over, collective, atleast once, as major, "fuck you, I hate you" heels. I'm not going to be doing that so much in the next shows, trust me.

Thanks for the clarification on Lynn's music, I had forgotten the name of the song.

I loved The Prophecy, so I couldn't live with myself if I didn't reform it. It was such an awesome group...even if they DID have Dan Maff....

Don't really pay attention to my card placement, as I'm normally VERY different than most. I don't like to have the first matches be opener and lowers, 4-6 being mids, 7-8 being uppers and the last matches being mains. TNA does that...and...eh, to me, I think to be sporatic, starting off your show with a high profile match, giving the fans "cool downs" in between and such makes for a better show.

- You're talking to someone's whose old shows used to be 12,000+ words, so a show in my mind can never be too long as long as its entertaining all the way through.

- Eh, its up to you how to use KENTA, it just seems like an incredibly waste of a great talent though.

- Sal's only joined the Embassy in real life because Shelley is going to become a more TNA based wrestler now, if he were still in RoH I can't imagine him not being in the Embassy.

- Like I said, heels don't have to cheat to win.

Anyway, I look forward to the next show. Good luck.

Rhando swaggers into the arena to Black Sabbath’s “Paranoid.” Rhando climbs onto the ring apron while putting Green Lantern Fan in his place by calling him a mommy’s-basement-dwelling-virgin. Rhando enters the ring and immediately charges at Dunn and Marcos, running right through them. The bell rings and the match begins. Rhando pulls Dunn to his feet, and starts this beating by tossing Dunn over his head with a t-bone suplex. Rhando immediately pulls Dunn to his feet, spins him around, and sends Dunn flying with a release German suplex. Dunn folds into a pretzel. Fortunately, Rhando made the mistake of flinging Dunn near his own corner and Marcos tags himself in. Marcos charges right at Rhando and knocks himself down, bouncing off the massive chest of Rhando. Rhando pulls Marcos to his feet and nails a vicious lariat. Rhando then rolls Marcos onto his stomach, puts Marcos in a hammerlock, and then bridges over, giving the move some added leverage. Rhando floats back over, stretches Marcos’s arm out and then bridges over in a unique looking bridging rings of Saturn type submission. Rhando then floats back over and pulls Marcos to his feet. Rhando grabs Marcos in a hammerlock and grabs Marcos’s leg. Rhando then picks up Marcos, and drops Marcos’s hammerlocked arm right on his knee and a cradle backbreaker-type maneuver.

Dunn then goes up to the top turnbuckle, looking for a stage dive. Dunn jumps, but Rhando instead opts to just nail his “F*** F*** Gore” as Dunn was in midair. Fortunately for Dunn, the massacre is over, and Rhando covers Dunn for a three count.

Final Result: Rhando, pinfall.

Annoyingly bad rap music then comes on, signaling the entrance of Jack Evans and “I don’t have enough personality to care what music I have” Matt Sydal. The match begins with Jack Evans breaking dancing at Jimmy Rave, and the fans informing Rave that he just got schooled. Prince Nana then tells Jimmy Rave to do an African dance, which obviously, Jimmy doesn’t know. So Jimmy improvises, dancing awkwardly in a circle.

Matt Sydal comes in, and he and Evans whip Rinauro off the ropes and nail a double back elbow. Evans hits a rolling senton on Rinauro, and Sydal follows this with a standing moonsault.

Sydal waits for Rave to get back to his feet, and Sydal hooks Rave up for the Here-It-Is-Driver, but Rave counters out, and connects with Ghana-rrhea. Rave goes for the cover, but Evans comes in and breaks it at two. Rinauro then comes in to fight Evans off, but Evans steps aside and Rinauro tumbles to the outside. Evans then springboard off the top rope and nails a corkscrew press on Rinauro. Rave pulls Sydal to his feet and signals for the finish. Sydal counters out and connects with the Here-It-Is-Driver. Sydal, then, calls for the finish and heads to the top turnbuckle, possibly looking for his shooting star press. Prince Nana gets on the ring apron and begins screaming random jibberish at Matt Sydal and begins poking at Sydal with the purple fan. Rave then uses this distraction to shove the referee into the ropes, crotching Sydal. Sydal tumbles off the top turnbuckle and Rave pulls him into position and nails Greetings from Ghana. Rave rolls Sydal over and covers for the three count.

Final Result: Jimmy Rave & Sal Rinauro, pinfall.

Danielson and Daniels, who have gotten back to their feet, obviously accept Joe’s challenge.

Joe: “Alright then, we’ll have ourselves a little tag-team match! You two, against me and a man that you, Bryan Danielson, have NEVER been able to beat in your entire RoH career!”

Danielson tilts his head and cocks his eye brow as Christopher Daniels asks him who it is.

Joe: “Oh, you look confused, Dragon, so let me spell it out for you. His first name starts with a J, and his “surname” starts with an L.”

Joe: “No, you idiot, not Jerry Lynn! My partner is going to be none other than JUSHIN “THUNDER” LYGER!

So, at Glory by Honor next month, it’s gonna be Donovan Morgan and Michael Modest against me and another guy I used to team with. First it was Jerry Lynn, and I thank him for teaming with me again, but he just didn’t get the job done.

Upcoming card

RoH Glory by Honor

Saturday October 14, 2006

(Large show)

RoH World Champion Bryan Danielson & Christopher Daniels vs. Samoa Joe & Jushin “Thunder” Lyger

Daniels and Danielson apparently made a deal, based off their mutual hate for Samoa Joe, and Daniels assisted Danielson in beating Joe at Unscripted. Joe, then, called the pair out, and told Danielson that his partner would be someone that American Dragon has never been able to beat: New Japan’s Jushin Lyger! Lyger makes his long awaited return to once again team with Samoa Joe in an effort to once again humble Bryan Danielson.

RoH World Tag-Team Champions Austin Aries & Roderick Strong vs. Briscoe Brothers (Jay & Mark) – Non-Title

The Briscoes demanded a title shot, but Aries and Strong denied thema title match, as the Briscoes have been unable to beat Aries or Strong in the last few attempts. Is the Briscoes win, they could be awarded a title shot, but if they lose, it may very well be a long time before they ever get another shot at the RoH World Tag-Team Championship!

RoH Pure Wrestling Champion Nigel McGuinness vs. Colt Cabana

At Unscripted, Colt Cabana pinned Nigel McGuinness after McGuinness had mocked Cabana for suffering a loss. After getting the win, Colt Cabana was awarded this title shot! Can Cabana get the win over his long time rival and dethrone the longest reining Pure Champion?

Falls Count Anywhere

Homicide vs. Adam Pearce

After Homicide was once again screwed out of a victory, he went to RoH match makers and demanded a match with Adam Pearce, and he was given it! Homicide now has Adam Pearce in his realm: falls count anywhere, no disqualifications! Will Adam Pearce live past Glory by Honor, or will Steve Corino be able to bail him out?

AJ Styles & Amazing Red vs. Donovan Morgan & Michael Modest

At Unscripted, AJ Styles teamed with a man he hadn’t teamed with in a long time: Jerry Lynn. The first TNA Tag-Team Champions were unsuccessful against The Prophecy. Now, AJ Styles has dusted off another former tag-team partner, a man he won the RoH Tag-Team Championship with: The Amazing Red! Now, the former champions take on Donovan Morgan and Michael Modest. Can AJ Styles gain some revenge and get the win over The Prophecy? Or will another former partner prove to be a failure?

KENTA vs. Jerry Lynn vs. Rhino vs. Jimmy Jacobs

At Unscripted, Rhino was the only one of these four to get a victory. Can he make it two in a row? Or can KENTA make everyone Go 2 Sleep? Or will jerry Lynn pile drive his way into the win column? Or can Jimmy Jacobs pull off the upset of a lifetime?

Also scheduled to appear: The Embassy, Rhando, BJ Whitmer, Chris Hero, Ace Steel, Claudio Castagnoli and more!

Overall I'd give this show a 4 out of 5. The Angle with Danielson wasn't as subtle as it should have been. It was a given that Daniels or the entire Prophecy would be helping Danielson win or at the very least be interfereing. The matches were well-written and entertaining, in my opinion. I'd like to see more angles involving non-main eventers. Maybe put more fuel on the Homocide-Corino fire.

Predictions for Glory by Honor:

KENTA versus Lynn versus Rhino versus Jacobs: I'll go on a limb and say Jacobs pulls off the upset, because I love to see younger talent get pushed. Then again, KENTA deserves the win and needs to be pushed up a little more on the card.

Styles & Red versus Morgan & Modest: I'm giving this one to Styles & Red, why? I feel The Prophecy needs to take a loss at this stage in the feud.

Homocide versus Pearce: Pearce via interference from Corino. Building up Homocide taking losses might help build up to a really good feud end win or mid-feud bout with Corino where Homocide goes ballistic.

Nigel versus Cabana: Cabana. I feel it would be nice to see Cabana win and continue this long-time feud.

Aries & Strong versus Briscoe Bros. Non-title: Briscoes. Because it's non-title, they prove themselves worthy of a title shot with a nice, clean victory.

Danielson/Daniels versus Joe/Lyger: Danielson/Daniels, via pinfall on Joe. Keep the Lyger never losing to Danielson thing going, so that way it can be used further down the line. I feel that this feud is going to continue to be an uphill battle for Joe, until other enemies of the Prophecy are brought in to topple over this alliance.
