– This week’s show features matches from the Global Wars Espectaclar tour, which happed one month ago. Quinn McKay checked in and noted that it was a lucha themed edition of the show in celebration of new ROH Champion, Rush.

Rush vs. Barbaro Cavernario: they light each other up and trade chops to begin. They work into counters, trade arm drags and work into a stand off. Cavernario fires back and hits the top rope clothesline but Rush counters back with a snap German. He follows with chops, clotheslines and the basement dropkick. Cavernario fires back, but Rush drops him with one right and pummels him in the corner. Cavernario fires up, counters bull’s horns and the splash follows for 2. Cavernario follows with a RANA and follows with the step up plancha. Cavernario then follows with a suicide dive. He slams Rush to the barricade, and back in, Cavernario covers for 2. Cavernario now gets tripped up, but hits a head butt. Rush counters the splash and kicks him to the floor and follows with the tope con hello. Rush’s shoulder is bleeding from the barricades so he tranquilos. Rush slams Cavernario to the barricades, and back in, Rush follows with strikes and Cavernario does the worm and gets suplexed to the buckles. The bull’s horns finishes it. Rush defeated Barbaro Cavernario @ 8:40 via pin [***½] Rush remains undefeated in a very good sprint.

The final score: review Average
The 411
Once again, we’re running a month behind on things, making these shows feel so dated. The one thing that was good was that they were able to mention Rush was the new champion, something that in the past, would have had to wait for another three weeks. These shows are fine if you haven’t seen the matches, but I feel that anyone actually taking time to watch ROH TV has seen the Honor Club shows and these matches already, so again, I question their effectiveness in actually building interest and a bigger fanbase, because judging by attendance figures so far this year, they aren’t.
