Ring of Honor TV 7/27/2013 Results and Review
Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/07/ring-of-honor-tv-7202013-results-and.html
No Corino on commentary for the opening match.
Mike Sydal and Zizou Middoux vs The American Wolves
Zizou is Zinedine Zidane's nickname. Zidane was a famous soccer player and is probably more well known by non-soccer fans for headbutting Materazzi in the 2006 World Cup Final. It was funny but he didn't help his French team en-route to getting kicked out and losing the Final to Italy. They said Zizou Middoux is from South Africa and they are pushing that the Middoux/Sydal team are partyboys.
We got a package on the ROH/SCUM feud. This got about 8 minutes.
Larry Legend and Adam Cole did promo's for 9/3. Cole said he would become champ on 9/3.
Steel Cage Warfare - Ring of Honor vs SCUM - Elimination Rules
Well, the finish ruined the match for me. It made no sense and made Steen look like a total jerk. The match was okay. These type of matches are just hard to do when you have so many people in a cage though. There is little room to move around and you can't do a ton of big spots. The first half of the match was also not very noteworthy. I didn't like the ending as I mentioned above so there wasn't much that I did enjoy here. It had a couple of okay spots, but I was pretty underwhelmed. This really wasn't on par with other ROH cage matches, but atleast it means that Scum is finally done. Now that is something to celebrate.
I'd also like to mention that Corino made tons of low class jokes throughout involving BJ Whitmer and drugs/booze.
Overall thoughts: It was a good episode overall, but I think others will enjoy it more than I did. The cage match was underwhelming and the finish was pretty dumb.
