Six-Man Tag Team Match
EC3 & The Briscoes vs. Shane Thorne & Kaun & Moses

Big man Kaun chooses to start things out but gets tossed into the corner by EC3 after a lock-up. EC3 drops him with a running back elbow and brings in Mark Briscoe. Mark locks up with Kaun and works a wrist lock, alternating between holds as commentary seems surprised at his technical skills. Kaun whips him into the corner and hits a big splash, Moses tags in and follows with a splash of his own.

It appears a lot happened during a short commercial break. We come back to Jay and Mark chipping away at Shane Taylor, who nearly knocks Mark out with a right hook and simply runs through Jay like a freight train. Moses tags in and drives his boot into Jay’s ribs a half dozen times. EC3 tries to make the save but the ref backs him off. In comes Taylor to clear the apron and continue working on the former ROH world champion.

Mark finally gets the hot tag and dodges a running splash, sending Shane Taylor to the floor. Meanwhile Moses ran off the apron to take out Jay with a diving senton. EC3 and Kaun brawled their way towards the others, prompting Mark Briscoe to jump off the top turnbuckle taking everyone down. He rolls Taylor back in the ring and tries for the Froggy Bow, but Taylor rolls out of the way and hits a sit-down piledriver! 1… 2… 3.

Winners: Shane Taylor Promotions

Long video packages recapped the road to the tournament finals between Jonathan Gresham and “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams. It’s time to crown a new champion!

ROH Pure Championship Match
Jonathan Gresham vs. Tracy Williams

As always, a very tense handshake starts the match. At the bell Gresham immediately takes his opponent to the mat with a lightnight quick takedown, trying for a head scissors, but Williams kips out of it. Gresham shoots in again trying for a gutwrench, Williams counters with an armdrag and the two fight to the outside. The technical back and forth continues with arm drags on the floor, before both guys stop and stare each other down. “Hot Sauce” holds the ropes for the tag team champion.

Back in the ring, Williams shoots in and takes his opponent down, going after the wrist. Gresham rolls into a single leg crab but doesn’t hold it long, instead picking his spots and manipulating both his ankles. He kicks Williams’ arm and bandaged shoulder and applies a hammerlock at the five minute mark. Williams smartly walks backwards into the ropes, burning his first break.

It turns out to be a good move as Williams is able to slap on a side headlock and add some extra torque. He alternates between holds and forces Gresham into the ropes to take his first ropebreak. An unhappy Gresham hits the ropes and delivers a big spear, but did some damage to himself in the process. Williams gives him a few knife-edge chops and a clothesline in the corner, but Gresham dodges a splash. He tries for another spear but “Hot Sauce” blocks it with a front facelock into a vertical suplex.

Tracy sets in with more heavy, knife-edge chops knocking down his opponent. Gresham finally wisens up and ducks one, hitting a German suplex bridge for two. We come back from break at the 10-minute mark. Williams rushes the corner but Gresham traps him in a body scissors and they both fall through the ropes to the floor in the struggle. Back in the ring, Gresham tries to shoot himself between the ropes, but Williams blocks it with another front facelock and transitions into a crossface! Gresham really looked like he was tapping but composes himself and gets to the ropes, using his second ropebreak.

Gresham fires back with uppercuts and comes off the ropes with a huge lariat for two. He wastes zero time and hits the ropes again, delivering a second lariat for a nearfall. He’s back up and starts kicking away at the bandaged shoulder. Williams blocks an octopus stretch, connects with a knee and… piledriver! 1… 2… Gresham gets his foot on the bottom rope, using his third and final ropebreak. Tracy sets in with more knife-edge chops, but Gresham catches him with the octopus stretch. He falls back to the mat, hooks both of the arms, and Williams taps!

Winner & New ROH Pure Champion: Jonathan Gresham

Jay Lethal comes out after the match to celebrate with his tag team partner. Gresham celebrates with the ROH World Tag Team title on one shoulder, the ROH Pure Championship on his other shoulder, and the Pure Title Tournament cup raised high! Tracy Williams adheres to the Code of Honor and shakes the new champ’s hand, paying his respects before leaving the ring.

ROH Wrestling TV Results & Stream (1/18): Dragon Lee Defends World TV Title, Flip Gordon vs Rhett Titus



ROH Wrestling TV airs every Monday at 7:00 PM ET on FITE TV. You can watch this week’s episode in its entirety above. Tonight, Flip Gordon battles Rhett Titus in a Pure Rules match, while Dragon Lee defends the ROH World TV title against Rey Horus in what should be a fantastic main event.

Quinn McKay has some business to take care of before we can head to the ring. We have updated rankings for the TV title and Pure title divisions. She explains that a wrestler can only be ranked in one division at a time. They are ranked based on wins and losses, as well as the quality of their matches and other intangibles. Wrestlers can apply with management to change divisions.

ROH World TV Title Division
Champion: Dragon Lee

  1. Rey Horus
  2. Tony Deppen
  3. Dak Draper
  4. Kenny King
  5. LSG

ROH Pure Title Division
Champion: Jonathan Gresham

  1. Tracy Williams
  2. Flip Gordon
  3. Josh Woods
  4. Rhett Titus
  5. Fred Yehi

Quinn also informs us that Matt Taven and Vincent from appearing together at ROH events going forward because of the “constant liabilities” including property damage and injuries that occur when they are in the same place at the same time.

Pure Rules Match
Flip Gordon vs. Rhett Titus

Promos run from both men before the match. Titus is furious that Flip Gordon refuses to shake his hand despite the clear rules of the Pure division, and promises to beat the respect into him tonight. Flip mocks Rhett for needing The Foundation to finally find himself, but he still has no respect for him.

When they actually meet, Flip once again refuses to adhere to the Code of Honor. Titus takes him to the mat, Flip takes over and goes after the arm, but Titus traps him in a headscissors with a bit of back-and-forth chain grappling.

We get an old school Greco Roman knuckle lock, which Titus gets the better of. He slaps on a body stretch in the middle of the ring and starts working the abs with elbow shots. Flip breaks free and throws forearms, but is once again trapped in a submission. He reaches out his foot and gets to the ropes to break the hold (Gordon: 2 | Titus: 3)

Flip rolls outside to collect himself, but runs right back into another series of submissions. Rhett stretches him out in a modified Romero Special, floats into a crossface, and Flip is forced to burn another ropebreak (Gordon: 1 | Titus: 3).

Titus is once again right on top of him with nasty elbow strikes before backing him into the corner, stomping a mudhole. Flip catches him with a neckbreaker for a one-count, but more importantly, finally gets a second to breath and get a bit of separation. He hits a superkick to a kneeling opponent and begins to stomp on the knee, trying to create an injury. Titus grabs at the ropes and burns one (Gordon: 1 | Titus: 2).

We come back from a brief commercial to Rhett back in control. He delivers a German suplex with a bridge for a two-count as they pass the 10-minute mark. Titus throws a big boot but get hung up in the ropes. Flip connects with Kinder Surprise to send his opponent to the floor. He may have tweaked his own knee in the process.

The ref begins his count. Flip rolls out and delivers a vertical suplex on the floor, doing some serious damage. The ref gets to about 14 before Flip just rolls in and breaks the count, delivering another kneeling superkick. Back in the ring he talks too much trash and Titus traps him in a half crab on the bad knee. He nearly taps out but instead lunges at the ropes (Gordon: 0 | Titus: 2).

Two minutes left in the match. Titus tries for a suplex but Flip lands on his feet. Thrust kick. Superkick. Flip screams and comes off the ropes with a springboard crossbody for two. His knee buckles and Titus rolls him up with a backslide for a nearfall. They trade pinning combos back and forth until Flip uses a blatant closed fist. Curb Stomp. Flip-5. He gets the win with 13 seconds left.

Winner: Flip Gordon

After the match, Flip Gordon “shakes” a nearly unconscious Rhett’s hand while he’s lying on the mat, mocking him. The announcers really played up the closed right fist and yet another violation of the Code of Honor.

Backstage, Quinn McKay informs Flip that he’s been officially suspended from the Pure Division after the blatant closed fist and refusing to adhere to the Code of Honor, in violation of the rules of the division. He claims “you get one punch” as a warning (technically true, but not really the spirit of the whole thing) but doesn’t seem to care, as he’ll just move to the TV division or find a partner and move to the tag team division.

ROH World TV Championship Match
Dragon Lee (c) vs. Rey Horus

Horus flies through the ropes catching the champ with a suicide dive as he’s making an entrance, rolls him back into the ring and connects with a flipping tilt-a-whirl DDT for an early nearfall.

We come back from break to both men trading some nasty elbow strikes. Horus gets the better of it, ducks a lariat and hits a beautiful Spanish Fly for another two-count. He calls for a Brainbuster but Lee escapes with knee strikes and dropkicks the challenger into the corner, going to work with more furious forearms.

Dragon Lee channels his brother Rush with the bull horns and delivers a hesitation dropkick to the face. He tries for it again but Horus counters with an exploder suplex into the turnbuckles! Both men down.

Lee climbs to the top rope but is caught with an enzuigiri. Horus jumps up to meet him and flips into an Avalanche Spanish Fly for 1… 2… nearfall. He looks for the around-the-world spinning DDT again, Lee counters with elbows and nearly kills him with a snap German suplex. Horus immediately fires back to life, but a huge sit-down powerbomb keeps him down for another nearfall.

A frustrated Dragon Lee goes for the Last Ride powerbomb but Horus sunset flips into a powerbomb to escape. Horus puts him on the top rope and tees off with stiff elbows. Commentary says he’s looking for a “body scissors driver” – I’ll take their word on that because it sounds just insane enough to be true for Horus. Lee fights back with even harder elbows and gives him a double stomp on the top rope. Back on the ground he connects with the Incineration knee strike and it’s over.

Winner: Dragon Lee

After the match, Dragon Lee puts his title belt on top of Horus and steps on them both in an obvious display of disrespect. Commentary is outraged at the lack of class as we go off the air. Tremendous main event.

Bandido Signs New Agreement With Ring Of Honor



Ring of Honor announced on Tuesday that Bandido has signed a new agreement with the company, though the terms are currently unknown.

Bandido originally joined ROH in 2018, but has been out of action since February due to travel restrictions. He is one-third of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Champions alongside Flamita and Rey Horus.

The following statement was posted on Ring of Honor’s official website:

Ring of Honor is pleased to announce that international star Bandido has re-signed with the company.

The announcement comes on the heels of UK star Mark Haskins signing a new contract to remain with ROH. The signings exemplify the company’s commitment to securing the best wrestlers on the planet.

One of the most innovative and electrifying competitors in professional wrestling, Bandido has been with ROH since December 2018, when the sensational luchador was among the hottest free agents in the industry.

Currently a co-holder of the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title with Flamita and Rey Horus, Bandido has not competed in ROH since February due to travel restrictions caused by the pandemic.

Before coming to ROH, Bandido competed extensively in his native Mexico as well as Japan, the UK and Australia.

As noted yesterday, ROH “mutually parted ways” with Marty Scurll.
