ROH Review – 200 Episodes ‘Celebrated’ in Laziest Way Possible

Check out our exclusive Ring of Honor depth chart!

7/22/15 – Scott Strandberg – @wrestlerosters

Instead of doing something important or even moderately interesting with the promotion’s 200th episode of television, Ring of Honor chose instead to air a clip show, with the exception of the main event. This was a downright embarrassing effort from ROH, especially on their 200th episode. If they were going to produce a throwaway episode, they probably shouldn’t have gone out of their way to promote it as a milestone.

Jay Briscoe, Mark Briscoe, Roderick Strong and ODB def. Jay Lethal, Donovan Dijak, J Diesel and Truth Martini by pinfall

Strong hit a single-leg dropkick on Dijak. Jay Briscoe added a snap suplex, and Mark hit a top-rope elbow drop. Dijak fought back with a huge vertical suplex on Mark, and the House of Truth exchanged quick tags to wear Mark down.

Mark finally reached his brother, who dropped Dijak with a big boot and a neckbreaker. Dijak recovered to hit a big boot of his own, and this time the House of Truth isolated Jay Briscoe. Jay finally fought back with a Death Valley Driver on Diesel, tagging in Strong as Diesel reached Lethal.

Strong hit a dropkick and a gutbuster, followed by a Sick Kick, forcing Diesel and Dijak to make the save. The Briscoes restored order as ODB blindly tagged in. Lethal hit a superkick on Strong, then teamed up with Truth to slam ODB.

The House of Truth surrounded ODB, who took a huge swig of her flask before attacking all four men. The Briscoes and Strong evened up the numbers, and chaos broke out on the outside. Truth tried to take advantage of the distraction to roll up ODB, but only got a two-count.

ODB spit liquor in Truth’s face and rolled him up for the pinfall.

Scott’s Thoughts: This was fine for what it was, which was a glorified house show main event.
