ROH Death Before Dishonor (24/07/15) Review

Added by Michael Cook

1. Silas Young vs Will Ferrara

This was basically the same as the TV match from a couple of weeks ago but ended differently with Young getting the win. After the match Dalton Castle’s boys came out. Young was going to beat them up but the boys got the upper hand this time and ended up with both of them riding on his back smacking his backside. Ferrara then posed with Castles boys. This seems more like a feud between Silas Young and the boys as Dalton Castle has had nothing to do with Silas Young for weeks now.

2. Cedric Alexander vs Moose

Veda Scott was in Alexander’s corner wearing an amazing outfit that a lawyer should not be wearing. Another ok but not amazing match with Alexander winning after hitting Moose with the wrench again. If Vince Russo had anything to do with this we would probably have a wrench on a pole match next but thankfully that will never happen.

3. The Briscoes vs Roppongi Vice

Yet another OK match, a lot of people probably thought it was really good but I had a feeling of something missing in this match. Don’t know if it was having no build to the match or no real meaning but I wasn’t really interested in the match. Maybe I need to see Roppongi Vice in some more matches. The Briscoes won with the Jay Driller and froggy bow on Trent.

4. Dalton Castle vs Adam Cole

Now we are getting started. This match was a lot of fun to watch. Castle is so entertaining and Cole played along perfectly to Castles shenanigans. Cole won with a neck breaker. After the match Silas Young came out and attacked Castles boys.

5. Adam Page vs ACH: No DQ Match

Good match and the use of weapons was well done. Adam Page won after he hit a sick looking rites of passage through a table that was outside the ring.

6. ROH World Tag Team Championship: The Addiction vs reDRagon vs War Machine vs The Kingdom

This was another good match that The Addiction won after hitting celebrity rehab on Fish. However the main story was Adam Cole on commentary. He said that the kingdom had a team meeting without him there. It was also confirmed that Maria had said she was looking outside of the kingdom to find a possible world champion. Cole was not happy with this as he said he is a former world champion.

One thing that is weird is that we have hardly seen Chris Sabin since it was revealed that the KRD were him and the addiction. I know Sabin is probably all over the place at different promotions but right now nothing has been mentioned of the group and if they are still together.

7. ROH World Champion Jay Lethal vs Roderick Strong

Great match that ended in a 60 minute time limit draw. The pacing of the match was good and it had to be for them to last that long. They looked exhausted by the end of it and it had rematch written all over it. That rematch should be on IPPV or PPV but it has been revealed that the rematch will happen 21st August as part of the aftershock tour. Maybe it will be shown on ROH TV and on demand but the rematch would be perfect for a main IPPV or PPV.

Overall I thought the PPV was good and it was really entertaining from Castle v Cole to the main event.
