Women of Honor Championship Tournament Semifinal: Mayu Iwatani vs. Kelly Klein: They had a pretty good back and forth match, Iwatani is really great, but lost to the ROH mainstay as expected. Hopefully with ROH and STARDOM working together, we get to see more Iwatani in ROH. On a side note, I highly question flying in Iwatani just to lose in a Facebook match. Kelly Klein defeated Mayu Iwatani @ 9:00 via referee stoppage [**¾]

Women of Honor Championship Tournament Semifinal: Tenille Dashwood vs. Sumie Sakai: I really liked the frantic opening here, with both busting ass and trying to steal the quick win. Dashwood even busted out a top rope high cross to the floor; she’s motivated as all hell so far, looking to prove a point. Sakai worked her submission game to ground Dashwood, Dashwood fought back, Sakai put together a long run of offense until Dashwood cut her off with a sitout powerbomb. Sakai made a comeback, including hitting her finish. But when she went up top, Dashwood hit a super German for a great near fall. Sakai blocked the spotlight kick and cradled Dashwood for the win. They had a good back and forth match with some great near falls, but I really question not having Dashwood make the finals. They are going for the veteran miracle run for Sakai instead. Sumie Sakai defeated Tenille Dashwood @ 8:04 via pin [***]

– They do the Kelly Klein vs. Sumie Sakai photo op. Klein cheap shots Sakai and lays her out.

– We have close to 6,000 in attendance.

Gresham avoids a charge, but Chuckie slams him and misses the moonsault. Gresham hits a RANA and takes Chuckie to the floor. He then overshoots a suicide dive and hits the barricade. Trent distracts Gresham allowing Chuckie to attack. Back in and he covers for 2. Gresham counters the awful waffle and attacks the knee of Chuckie. Gresham follows with strikes, and gets an ankle lock. Gresham is so smooth. Chuckie battles back, doing the deal with a falcon arrow for 2. He follows with rights, Gresham answers back and they trade. Gresham again attacks the knee, but Chuckie hits soul food. Gresham counters back with a tornado DDT but Chuckie rolls him up for the win. Chuckie T defeated Jonathan Gresham @ 8:38 via pin [***] This was a good back and forth opening match, they worked well together, kept the crowd and it was a ton of fun.

Tomohiro Ishii vs. Punishment Martinez: Ishii gets s huge reaction. Ishii attacks with strikes right away, they trade and work shoulder tackles. Martinez hits a superman punch and drops Ishii.

Martinez fights of the brainbuster, and hits a lariat for 2. They trade strike sand kicks, and Martinez finishes it with the south of heaven chokeslam. Punishment Martinez defeated Tomohiro Ishii @ 8:35 via pin [***½] This was a very good, and hard-hitting hoss style sprint, with Martinez picking up the huge win, which was great to see.

Kota Ibushi vs. Adam Page: No handshake; they lockup and work to the ropes. Page attacks with the boot and shoulder block. They pick up the pace and work into a stalemate. Ibushi now lays in kicks, but Page cuts him off with a neck breaker in the ropes. Mounted rights follow from Page. Page starts to target the neck of Ibushi, but Ibushi hits a dropkick to cut him off. Ibushi lights him up with strikes and kicks; the standing moonsault gets 2. Ibushi follows with a RANA and Page rolls to the floor.

The work was simply great and the crowd added a ton to the match as they were into everything.

Klein and Sakai trade strikes, Sakai fires up and then runs into a big boot. Klein covers for 2. The northern lights follows for 2. Klein lays in strikes, but Sakai hits a fisherman’s buster. She heads up top, and the moonsault grazes Klein. The DDT follows for the win. Sumie Sakai defeated Kelly Klein @ 7:42 via pin [**] This was ok, bit fell apart at the end as it appeared the moonsault was to be the finish. Klein wasn’t sure what to do, but Sakai largely saved it, but looked confused, as if she wasn’t supposed to win. They also lost the crowd big time.

Six-Man Tag Team Title Ladder Match: Champions So Cal Uncensored vs. Flip Gordon & The Young Bucks: They all brawl to begin, with Flip and Daniels being sent to the floor.

Flip makes his comeback with a blockbuster, but Sky and Kaz cut him off. Flip monkey flips Kaz into a ladder and follow with a tope. The Bucks now double team Sky, and take out Daniels. Nick smashes Kaz’s hands in the ladder, and then the Bucks double team Sky and Daniels. Nick hits a cutter on Daniels onto the ladder.

Matt knocks Daniels to the mat, but Daniels topples over the ladder, sending Matt flying off onto a table, where another Kingdom member was. Daniels climbs and the champions retain. Champions So Cal Uncensored defeated Flip Gordon & The Young Bucks @ 23:25 [****½] This was an excellent ladder match, with great teases, great big bumps and just great work from the two teams. It really felt as if they were on thier way to another absolutely classic ladder match, but the stuff with the Kingdom hurt that. The only real good thing about their interaction is that they got put through table, and they could have done the belt-stealing angle without it. Still, this was beautiful insanity, with the Bucks, Daniels, and Kaz continuing their long history of working extremely well together. Those four guys know themselves so very well, and the interactions between the four come off as almost effortless. Sky and Flip also played their roles very well, and this was the chaotic spectacle that you likely expected from this match; it flat out delivered.

– Taven attacks post match and the Kingdom steal the tiles.

Champions The Briscoes defeated Jay Lethal & Hiroshi Tanahashi @ 19:45 via pin [***] While there was little doubt that the Briscoes would retain, they did a hell of a job making the crowd believe in a tile change. This was a good match, with some great drama in the closing stretch, and the Briscoes winning because they were simply the superior team.

– Austin Aries arrives and says he’s here because he wants the TV Title. He wants a match with who ever wins tonight. He’s joining commentary.

TV Title Last Man Standing Match: Champion Kenny King vs. Silas Young: They brawl right away, with King taking early control. Young bounces back and turns him inside out with a lariat. Young looks for a high cross, caught and King hits a back breaker. He now locks on a crab, and then a last chancery, which upsets Aries. Young then dumps King to the floor and through a table.

Bruiser ties King’s feet up and that leads to a shitty finish and Young winning. Silas Young defeated Champion Kenny King @ 15:52 [**] This was ok, both guys worked really hard, but it was lethargic, and the interference & shit finish was embarrassing.

– Young & Bruiser attack post match, but Aries makes the save.

Cheeseburger & Bully Ray vs. The Dawgs: You have to be fucking kidding me with this bullshit. They brawl at the bell. The Dawgs destroy Isom and Bully Ray finally arrives, nice of you to be here, considering you fucked up earlier tonight. Bully cuts a promo, deciding to do his job for once. Bully says if Burger can’t find a partner, the match is cancelled. Burger wants Bully as his partner. Chriiiiiiiiiiiiiiiist. Bully & Cheeseburger run wild. Cheeseburger hits a shotei on Ferrara, and they then do the wazzup. Bully then turns on Cheeseburger and chokeslams him. Bully then runs down Cheeseburger for putting him on the spot. He says Cheeseburger is what is wrong with wrestling, Cheeseburger and all of his kind. He runs down Ospreay, Gordon, and Ricochet. Joe Koff arrives and Bully runs him down for hiring people like Cheeseburger. Bully says Koff won’t do anything. Gordon arrives, and Bully threatens to piledrive Cheeseburger. This is going on forever. Bully puts on his hall of fame ring and looks so happy with himself. He powerbombs Cheeseburger and leaves.Bully’s never turned down a Cheeseburger in his life. Fuck of Bully, if I don’t see you again, it’ll be fine. This was an extremely horrible segment that wasn’t needed on a show going this long. It was also stupid after all of the focus on his big babyface farewell tour that took up a shit ton of TV time.

Cody vs. Kenny Omega: Cody is flanked by Brandi, the police, and Bernard the Business Bear. Omega got a huge reaction and the crowd is on his side. Here we go as the fans chant, “fuck you Cody.” They haven’t done anything and the crowd is into this big time.

Omega tries to roll and turn it, but Cody maintains control. They trade strikes in this overly long figure four spot, and Omega finally turns it and Cody makes the ropes. Cody now hits a dragon screw, and then gets a table. Cody tries cross Rhodes from the apron. Omega fights it off, lays in rights and looks for a snapdragon, and hits it on the apron. The crowd reaction has really diminished here. They come back in spurts, but they are starting to lose them. Cody fights him of and hits a cut buster suplex onto a table turned on its side. That’ll break some ribs. Cody gets another table, rolls Omega back in and hits a springboard dropkick. The Alabama slam follows for 2.

They work into s double down. The Young Bucks arrive, and superkick Omega as Cody moved. They fucked up and know it. Cody hits cross Rhodes and wins. Cody defeated Kenny Omega @ 36:22 via pin [***] They had an overall good match, but for me, it really felt short of expectations considering the great angle and work they did to sell the match. The work was good, and there were some good storyline elements (like the angle with the Bucks); in many ways I think it was the right match for this stage of the feud, because they are far from the blow off. But this was too much ballyhoo Cody, complete with stalling and a ref bump, instead of proving a point Cody, which he has been for most of 2018. It went too long, and they lost the crowd big time in the middle. It was far from bad, but I expected more to be honest with you.

– Post match, the Bucks check on Omega as Cody leaves.

World Title Match: Champion Dalton Castle vs. Marty Scurll: They lock up, working to he ropes and then they break. They play to the crowd, Castle digs in his tights and pulls out a middle finger for Marty. Marty tries the finger break spot, but Castle fights him off.

Mart cuts him off, attacks the arm and to the floor they go and Marty sends Castle to the post. They brawl on the floor, Marty chases off the boys and back in they go. Marty starts picking apart Castle, attacking the arm and finally taking control. Marty is picking him apart here, with really nice work on the arm. The crowd has really died as people have been leaving since Cody vs. Kenny finished. Marty starts to lay in strikes, but Castle slowly fires back. Castle hits a running knee strike, and Saito suplex. He follows with more suplexes. Marty cuts him off, attacking the arm and then dumps Castle to the floor. Marty follows, but Castle hits a desperation German on the floor for the double down. Back in and Mary hits an enziguri but Castle cuts him of with a charging knee, sending Marty back to the floor. Castle follows, but Marty shoves him to the barricade and hits a tornado DDT. Back in and Castle cuts off the DDT, but Marty counters bangarang into a cradle for 2. Castle hits a knee strike, and then repeated knee strikes follow. The crowd slowly gets back into it, they work up top and Marty hits the superplex. The apron superkick follows and we get some floor brawling, with Marty backdropping Castle onto the entrance steps. Back in the ring and Marty works the arm. Marty hits the ghostbuster for 2. And we go back to the floor for more walk and brawl, the crowd is gone again.

Castle lays the boots to Marty, and hits a dead lift German for 2. They work up top, Marty hits a low blow and superkick. Another superkick follows for a good near fall.

Castle escapes, but Marty locks it in again, and then breaks the fingers. The crowd is finally back. Marty lays in viscous stomps to the head of Castle, but fights back, eats superkicks, and hits bangarang and wins. Champion Dalton Castle defeated Marty Scurll @ 31:51 via pin [*] There are time in wrestling where you absolutely need to call an audible and change things up from your initial plan, and this match was a prime example of that. You just ran a 30-minte match that was draining on the crowd, and this was a prefect place to change plans and to do something fun, energetic and condensed. But ROH double downed and went 30-minute again, with a crowd that was drained as we started closing in on 4.5 hours. There were portions of this I loved, both guys working with some great aggression was what I loved. But it just kept going, the crowd largest didn’t care, and then we got a bunch of overbooking bullshit, which may have played well if we hadn’t already seen it with the Kingdom, with the Bruiser, and with Cody previously. It’s diminishing returns, and the longer this went on, and the less the crowd cared, the harder it was to become invested in any way. The guys worked hard, but there are times that even the best actors can’t save a poor script. This was, unfortunately, bad.

– End Scene.

– Thanks for reading.

“Byyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyyye Felicia!”

The final score: review Average
The 411
On paper, ROH Supercard of Honor looked like a can’t miss event and one of the best card of Mania week. The show started off well enough and was strong through the ladder match. And then they took an unneeded intermission, and the show’s pacing went to hell and the quality took a downturn. The tag title match was good, the TV title match was killed by interference and a horrible finish, due to that interference. Cody vs. Kenny was good but felt like it was missing something, especially considering the build. Things then went off the rails during the main event, it went way too long contained way too much bullshit and was everything ROH claims that they aren’t. At the end of the day, this was an average show at best.
