ROH Death Before Dishonor 2018 Results – Matt Taven Makes a Huge Statement and WOH Star Taken Out

Check out what went down at Ring Of Honor’s Las Vegas event, Death Before Dishonor 2018.

Ring Of Honor headed to the bright lights of Las Vegas this weekend and with international calibre stars galore, a man with a new look and a point to prove overshadowed the nights main event.

In our main event, Jay Lethal held on to his Ring Of Honor World Title against international superstar Will Ospreay in an unbelievable contest. These two went back and forth all around the ring and ringside area, even bringing ladders and unfortunately Bobby Cruise into play. The Aerial Assassin looked likely to make history but Lethal countered a top rope hurricanrana into a unreal top rope powerbomb, followed by a Lethal Injection for the three count.

However just as Lethal was basking in his victory, The Kingdom appeared and laid everyone out, including Jonathan Gresham who tried to make the save. Lethal then looked set to fend them off himself but was blindsided by Matt Taven, who hit him with a mysterious bag. That bag contained a purple belt, all to similar to the ROH World Title. Taven made his intentions clear by stating that HE is the real ROH Champion as the show went off the air.

The Briscoes held on to their ROH Tag Team Titles against S.C.U in a brutal contest which was pretty much a handicap match for over half the match. Frankie Kazarian suffered a nasty cut on the back of his head and was tended to by ringside doctors, which left Christopher Daniels to fight on his own. Despite a spirited effort, The brother duo stood tall with a pair of Jay Drillers; one on the outside and then one in the center of the ring.

Sumie Sakai also retained her title, beating Tenille Dashwood to keep her Women Of Honor World Title in a good match. Tenille looked set to capture the gold after a powerbomb, but Dashwood’s injured shoulder came into play, so Sakai was able to shift her positioning and lock in an armbar forcing Dashwood to pass out from the pain. Dashwood’s night was not over though as she was brutally attacked backstage.

Punishment Martinez kept his gold as well, beating Chris Sabin for his Ring Of Honor Television Title, dropping him with a lethal combination of a psycho driver, curp stomp and then the South of Heaven chokeslam. Sabin then looked set to be put on the shelf by Martinez, but he was saved new arrival Jeff Cobb who made his intentions for the belt himself, shrugged off a chair shot from Martinez and laid him out in the middle of the ring.

In a wild ten-man tag action, the Bullet Club quintet of Marty Scurll, Cody, The Young Bucks and Hangman Page beat the CHAOS squad of Kazuchika Okada, Tomohiro Iishi, Rocky Romero, Chuckie T and Barreta when The Villain made Romero tap out to the cross face chicken wing.

There was controversy in the tag tea tables match between the duo of Bully Ray and Silas Young up against Colt Cabana and Flip Gordon. In a highly emotional affair, Flip looked set to clear the field by throwing Bully through one table, then hitting a 450 on Silas through another however the referee had been knocked down. Then, Bully Ray blindsided Flip and threw him into the rubble. The referee then awoke and awarded the victory to Ray and Silas Young, much to the crowds disapproval.

Finally, Kenny King showed more signs of a darker side when he seemed to feign sympathy for Jushin Thunder Liger after suffering a back injury, only for King to drop him with a spinebuster for the tainted victory in the shows opener.
