Ring of Honor TV 9/21/2013 Results and Review

Ring of Honor TV 9/21/2013 Results and Review

Last week's show is here: http://prowresblog.blogspot.com/2013/09/ring-of-honor-tv-9142013-results-and.html

They announced Prince Nana is the new ROH talent scout. Nana is also apparently the new commentator as he announced for this show.

ROH Title Tournament - Michael Bennett vs Tomasso Ciampa

Ciampa's music was played live by the band that made it.

Ciampa did one of the dumbest spots I've seen in a while during the beginning. He dropped to his knees randomly and dropkicked Bennett in the face.

Why not just blur out the whole screen at this point?
Ciampa got the win with a Kryptonite Krunch on the floor. This bombed. Awful match. They started out stalling and then did tons of bogus knees and dropkicks. Ciampa started doing them on the outside and looked like he hurt himself more than the opponent. They also teased the piledriver on the apron spot which was in poor taste and finished with a move on the floor. The worst part though was all the blurring. Anytime a fan gave a middle finger, they put up a giant blur. When multiple fans started doing it, barely anything was visible. Lots of boring chants too for this heatless disaster.

ROH Title Tournament - Kevin Steen vs Roderick Strong

Steen won with the package piledriver. The match wasn't bad and they really kept it moving and brought it hard. Strong got dropped on his head atleast three times including one nasty hanging DDT and they both did superplexes. Strong's elbows were the highlights here.

ROH Title Tournament - Michael Elgin vs Karl Anderson

Michael Elgin won with a spinning sit out powerbomb. The match was fine. Anderson didn't get a lot of offense in so he didn't do some of the stupid stuff he sometimes does, the crowd was into it and I didn't have any major problems with it. Elgin tried the Cesaro deadlift from the apron to a superplex spot but dropped Anderson some and Anderson bounced off the turnbuckles.

Overall thoughts: I think most people will enjoy this. There were two decent to good matches here.
