ROH TV Review (2/5/15)

Added by Michael Cook

1. War Machine: Hanson and Ray Rowe vs. Killer Elite Squad: Lance Archer and Davey Boy Smith, Jr.

Unbreakable Michael Elgin walked to the ring with Killer Elite Squad with the great commentary team of Kevin Kelly and Steve Corino confirming that Michael Elgin had obtained his managers licence for this match.

This was a good tag team match that had a lot of power moves but not in a way that is very boring (Sorry Ascension but I mean you)

Referee Paul Turner made it a no contest as everybody was in the ring and not listening to refs calls of getting out. I hope this is the start of a tag team feud between War Machine and Killer Elite squad but I have a feeling it could be just a plot device for the Michael Elgin part of the feud against War Machine.

2. ROH World Television Title: Jay Lethal vs. Tommaso Ciampa

Jay Lethal is the top villain in the company in my opinion and he has done a very good job of making the ROH World Television Championship mean something and it is so simple. He defends the title on a regular basis and well he is STILL the Champion after a year.

Anyway this week he defended it against Tommaso Ciampa, another wrestler I am a fan of. Oh my God this was a good match. It did involve a lot of interference by Truth Martini and Donovan Dijak. Referee Todd Sinclair would finally eject them from ringside. As this is happening Lethal Low Blows Ciampa and hits Lethal Injection for the win.

As Ciampa was getting up he downed Todd Sinclair and put him in the corner and gave him four face wash knee strikes. Ciampa was told that if he ever did this he would be fired. Crowd was chanting please don’t go as the show ended.

Hope this is not the last we see of Ciampa because he has a Stone Cold Steve Austin chaotic style to his character.

Overall a good show and with only two matches this week it gave the main event more time. However it did have a lot of commercial breaks that broke up the flow of the match.

Next Episode:

It looks like we are in for a treat on the next ROH TV as the main event will be Alberto El Patron, Matt Sydal and ACH vs Roderick Strong and The Briscoes.
