RING OF HONOR HELD THE FINAL MAJOR PAY-PER-VIEW OF THE YEAR IN NEW YORK CITY AND WITH THE YEAR ENDING, A NEW CHAPTER WAS WRITTEN IN THE ROH TITLE’S LONG STORIED HISTORY.
Dalton Castle finally captured the Ring Of Honor World Title in the main event against ‘The American Nightmare’ Cody following a Bang-a-rang clean in the middle of the ring. This match saw a number of firsts, with Cody honoring his Rhodes heritage by debuting a new blonde hair-do, and also it saw Castle become the first man to kick out of Cross Rhodes in ROH, leading to his eventual victory.
We also a man who has had a career year in Silas Young best three other competitors who had a banner 2017 to win the ROH TV Title in a four way elimination match. Shane Taylor was eliminated by a twisting senton from Punishement Martinez, the now former champion Kenny King was taken out by a beer bottle and finally Silas captured the gold when he dropped Martinez with Misery.
The other champions were lucky enough to keep their belts, with ROH Six Man Tag Team Champions The Hung Bucks (the team of The Young Bucks and Hangman Page) beating the trio of Flip Gordon and CMLL stars Titan and Dragon Lee with a double Indytaker. Also, Motor City Machine Guns held on the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Titles when they beat Chuck Taylor and Trent Baretta, the Best Friends.
There was also a huge announcement for a new title in Ring Of Honor, the Women of Honor Championship, which will be decided in a tournament in January of 2018, featuring the women from ROH and several STARDOM competitors.
We also had a score settled as The Briscoe Brothers beat the legendary Bully Ray and Tommy Dreamer, in what may be Bully Ray’s last match. The bloody, violent affair ended when The Briscoes hit Bully Ray with a 3D on, and then an elbow through a table. There was another grudge tag team match as War Machine avenged the repeated attacks from The Addiction when they hit Fallout on Christopher Daniels.
Finally, we also had two big marquee singles contests in which Jay Lethal managed to out-cheat ‘The Villian’ Marty Scurll with a low-blow out of the referee’s vision and a Lethal Injection and Matt Taven bested Will Ospreay in a wild opener with his Climax headlock DDT.
