A DUO OF NEW CHAMPS AND A TEAM IN TURMOIL HEADLINED RING OF HONOR’S ANNUAL TRIP TO LAS VEGAS FOR ‘DEATH BEFORE DISHONOR XV’.
In the main event inside of a packed house in Sams Town Live, Cody Rhodes successfully defended his Ring Of Honor Title (and the Ring Of Honor too) against New Japan star and current NEVER Openweight Champion, Minoru Suzuki.
We also had two new champions, with Kenny King (gaining major popularity for his stint on The Batchelorette) winning the ROH Television Title from KUSHIDA and The Motor City Machine Guns besting The Young Bucks to win the ROH Tag Team Titles, in a match which saw The Addiction try and ruin the match for the fans by interfering, but the two teams found a common bond for a brief time, to do away with the dastardly Daniels and Kazarian.
There appears to be a rift in House Briscoe as Jay cost his brother and Bully Ray a chance to win back their ROH Six Man Tag Team Titles. There were signs of dissension in the first match, in which they beat The Kingdom to advance to this title match when Jay Briscoe was upset that he was left out of The Doomsday Device that won his team the match. He teased hitting Bully with a chair, only to blast TK O’Ryan with it and storm off.
It then all came to a head during the title match between them and The Hung Bucks (Hangman Page and The Young Bucks) when it seemed that the challengers had their hands on the title, Jay smashed a table into Bully Ray’s face, giving Hangman the pin and the win to retain the titles.
Also, you read this correctly – they have found Hangman Page ! (one for the fans of Being The Elite there)
In two big stipulation matches to possibly end two heated feuds, Silas Young bested Jay Lethal in a brutal last man standing match, by getting up just before ten when both men fell off a ladder through a table. The reason he got up first was because Lethal had been zip tied to the ladder, so whether this one is over remains to be seen. Also, Punishment Martinez beat Jay White in a brutal street fight following a chokeslam onto some thumbtacks.
Finally, ‘The Villain’ Marty Scurll beat Chuck Taylor via submission with the chicken wing.
