Csonka’s ROH TV Review 12.06.17

– Marty Scurll defeated The Beer City Bruiser @ 10:23 via pin [**]
ROH Tag Team Title Match: Motor City Machine Guns defeated The Kingdom @ 11:51 via pin [**¾]
– Flip Gordon defeated Adam Page @ 9:00 via pin [***]

– Follow all of my reviews at this link.

Marty Scurll vs. The Beer City Bruiser: Bruiser uses his power to begin, frustrating Marty. Marty cuts him off with a superkick, and stomps on his hands. The dropkick follows and Bruiser rolls to the floor. Marty follow shim out and lays in strikes, but Bruiser battles back and sets Marty in a chair and delivers strikes. He then misses a cannon ball and smashes into the barricade. Post break, Bruiser lays in rights and hits a slam. He heads up top, but misses the splash as we see Lethal watching on from the stage. Marty cut off the Bruiser, attacking the arm. Marty follows with a tornado divorce court and an apron superkick. Bruiser fires back with rights, but Marty hits a superkick to the knee. Bruiser cuts him off with a lariat for 2. Bruiser climbs the ropes, but Marty catches him with a powerbomb for 2 as the ref caught him with his feet on the ropes. Bruiser takes Marty to the floor, but misses the cannonball to the floor. Bruiser beats the count back in and Marty locks in an octopus, but Bruiser makes the ropes, Marty looks for the chicken wing, but Bruiser escapes. We get a ref bump. Mary grabs the umbrella, Lethal teases getting involved, but Marty waffles Bruiser and picks up the win. Marty Scurll defeated The Beer City Bruiser @ 10:23 via pin [**] This ended up only being ok, with Marty about to face Lethal at Final Battle, seeing him have so much trouble with the Bruiser and needed a ref bump and umbrella to win didn’t make him seem like a threat. They were too concerned with selling Marty’s “villain” gimmick here instead of giving him a strong win.

– Dalton Castle cuts a fired up promo about his issues with Cody

– We get a video package on the Briscoes issues with Bully Ray, including video of the Briscoes going to Bully Ray’s wrestling school. Bully wasn’t there, so Jay beat down his students as Mark filmed the assault. They then started destroying the offices as a trainee said the police were on the way. The Briscoes hit a 3D on a trainee before leaving.

– Caprice Coleman hosted Coleman’s Pulpit with special guest Caprice Coleman. He plans to beat Kenny King for the TV title next week and head to Final battle as the champion.

Motor City Machine Guns vs. The Kingdom (Vinny Marseglia & TK O’Ryan): The Kingdom attacks at the bell, but the Guns fight back right away and clear the ring and follow with planchas. This leads to a brawl on the floor, with the Kingdom taking control back and back in they go. Shelley makes a comeback; the Guns work double teams and pick up a near fall. O’Ryan tries to make the comeback, but the Guns attack the leg and get stereo figure fours on the Kingdom. The Kingdom escape, O’Ryan drops to the floor favoring his leg, but it was a trap. They cut off Sabin in the ring, working double teams; they grab the titles and celebrate. Post break, and the Kingdom are in control, working over Shelley, but he battles back and tags in Sabin, who flies in with a high cross. Sabin runs wild, hits a missile dropkick and the suicide dive follows. Back in they go, they look for skull and bones, but Vinny makes the save. O’Ryan hits a cutter on Sabin and Vinny hits the senton for 2. They double-team Sabin, set him up top and Sabin fights them off, but double teams follow as Shelley makes the save. The Kingdom tried to use weapons (bat and ax), but it backfired as O’Ryan hit Vinny with the bat. The Guns finished things off with the dream sequence and double driver for the win. Motor City Machine Guns defeated The Kingdom @ 11:51 via pin [**¾] This was a pretty good match, with a nice layout overall, but a weak finish. The Guns are the champions, and don’t need the heels costing themselves the match, especially when they aren’t on the PPV. There was also no drama in the Kingdom potentially winning, which hurt the match.

Flip Gordon vs. Adam Page: No code of honor here, Gordon is learning. They work some back and forth, with Page looking to overpower Gordon, but Gordon uses his speed to counter back, Page sends him to the floor, They do some flippy counters, back in and Gordon head scissors Page to the floor. Gordon hits a superkick and moonsault to the floor. Gordon looks to flip back in and eats a big boot. Page covers, but Gordon kicks out at 1. Page sets Gordon in the tree of WHOA and works him over. He gets a chair, sets it up and runs off of it and dropkicks Gordon. Post break, Page is still in control but Gordon starts to fire back, they trade back and forth and Gordon hits an enziguri. Gordon gets a sunset flip for 2. Gordon heads up top and Page looks to cut him off, and Gordon then hits a RANA off the ropes and the running shooting star press gets 2. Page hits a rolling forearm, sends Gordon to the floor and the top rope moonsault connects. Back in they go and they trade chops, Page looks for rite of passage, Gordon escapes and hits a superkick and hits the Samoan pop and PELE. The star spangled stunner connects and Gordon wins. Flip Gordon defeated Adam Page @ 9:00 via pin [***] This was a good, fun, back and forth main event. Gordon finally picks up a win over a Bullet Club member ahead of challenging for the trios titles at Final Battle. While Flip won tonight’s battle, the numbers game got to him at the end, with Bullet Club standing tall.

– Post match, the Young Bucks arrive and lay out Gordon with a superkick.

– Kenny King defends the TV title against Caprice Coleman next week.

– End Scene.

– Thanks for reading.
