ROH Final Battle 2018 Results: End Of An Era For Several Major Ring Of Honor Stars

Mike Mears reports on ROH Final Battle 2018, with a three-way ladder war for the ROH Tag Team Titles and Cody vs Jay Lethal for the ROH World Title.

 

Ring Of Honor held it’s ‘Final Battle’ of 2018 and it was the finale for several major stars as the reportedly head off to pastures new.

However, a pair of stalwarts in ROH won the gold for the record TENTH time. The Briscoe Brothers stood tall in Ladder War to win the Ring Of Honor Tag Team Titles from S.C.U and The Young Bucks. Jay Briscoe grabbed the belts from the top of the ladder when Mark Briscoe threw a chair at Kazarian, sending him through a table below.

 

Jay Lethal held on to the ROH World Title, surviving against Cody. Cody threw everything he could at Lethal, including Brandi Rhodes and Hangman Page but Lethal proved he could fight dirty as well, clipping the knee of Cody with the title belt before finishing him off with a figure four leg lock.

 

Hangman Page was not as successful in his title persuit, losing to ROH Television Champion Jeff Cobb in a highly physical contest, Cobb sealing the win with a pair of ‘Tour Of The Islands’ slams.

 

Flip Gordon finally beat the bully as he topped Bully Ray in a wild I Quit match. In a contest that involved Cary Silkin, Bobby Cruise, Todd Sinclair and even Flip Gordon’s girlfriend, Sandman neutralized the interference of Silas Young to allow Flip to torture Bully with a barrage of kendo stick shots forcing Bully to quit.

 

Our second new champion came in the form of Kelly Klein, capturing the Women Of Honor World Championship in a four corner survival match defeating Sumie Sakai, Madison Rayne and Karen Q. Klein defeated all four women, finishing off Sakai finally with a middle rope K-Power to seal the victory.

 

Ring Of Honor seemingly said goodbye to Christopher Daniels, losing to Marty Scurll who held on to his guaranteed ROH World Title shot by forcing Daniels to submit to the cross-face chickenwing. 

In a technical wrestling masterclass, Zack Sabre Jr won his debut match in Ring Of Honor beating Jonathan Gresham, countering a european clutch into one of his own for the three count.

 

 

 

Matt Taven ‘defended’ his ‘real’ Ring Of Honor World Championship against Dalton Castle, finishing him off with Climax for the three count and finally, Kenny King saw off Eli Isom with a modified Royal Flush out of a reverse leapfrog to open the show.
