Ring of Honor HDNet Taping Results – Episode 5
Pre-Show Notes: Pelle Primeau is here. He was at ringside in street clothes before the show. Also, I heard from someone who saw Eddie Kingston here in his gear. I don’t know 100 percent but there it is.
They opened the taping with the episode 5 main event.
-Claudio Castagnoli defeated Brent Albright. Claudio attacked Albright before the bell and they brawled around ringside. Back in the ring they went toe to toe, exchanging chops in the corner. Claudio caught Albright on a dive to the floor and rammed him into the guardrail and knocked me and several others back a row. Jerk made me drop my Blackberry! Claudio continued working him over in the ring with a lot of stiff shots and went back to the floor where Albright hit him with an overhead belly-to-belly out of nowhere. Albright went to work back in the ring, but Claudio was able to get him in the giant swing. Albright got him in the crowbar, but Claudio made the ropes. They did a reversal sequence that ended with Claudio getting a victory roll with the ropes for the win.
-Austin Aries defeated Kenny Omega. The crowd was chanting "Austin A–hole" and "you tapped out" at Aries. Aries outwrestled Omega to start, but Omega came back with some nice athletic moves, but Aries yanked him off the top rope to the floor and went back to work. Aries gave him a wet willie (serously) and it the Power Drive Elbow for 2. Omega came back with a spinkick and an enziguiri, then mounted a comeback. Omega with a springboard moonsault to the floor, but Aries went to the eyes and rammed him into the ringpost. Corner dropkick, kick to the head, and brainbuster wins it for Aries. Very competitive match and Omega looked great.
-Delirious defeated "Dirty" Ernie Osiris. Delirious is bringing back elements of the old, funny Delirious in his persona, basically acting like he used to except he’s a heel now. He ripped off Konnan’s highspot and threw Osiris’ sneaker at him. This was almost all Delirious, finishing Dirty Ernie off with a Panic Attack and then Shadows Over Hell.
-Daizee Haze and a partner whose name I didn’t catch defeated Sara Del Rey and another unnamed partner. Daizee and her partner outmaneuvered Sara to start. This was almost all Sara, who even kept shoving her own partner around and tagging herself in when the partner didn’t do well enough. Sweeney was in total sleaze mode, hitting on anything female out there. Daizee hit the Mindtrip on Sara’s partner for the win.
-Jerry Lynn defeated Brodie Lee. I love Brodie Lee’s look, like a big oil mechanic you don’t want to mess with. Brodie overpowered Jerry for most of the match, catching Jerry with some big slams and beating him up on the outside. Brodie continued beating Jerry up in the ring and hit a nice Michinoku Driver for 2. Brodie Lee threw Jerry into the guardrail right in front of me again and this time he went clean through it. Jimmy came to ringside yelling at Brodie to put Jerry out, but Jerry mounted a comeback with a hurricanrana and a top rope dropkick. Jerry hit Brodie with a dive to the floor and a missile dropkick, but Brodie got a top rope butterfly suplex for 2. Brodie with a big boot in the corner and a Black Hole Slam for 2, but Jerry with an inside cradle for the win. Jimmy reamed Brodie out after the loss.
-Rhett Titus and Kenny King defeated Cheech and Cloudy. Fun tag match with Cheech and Cloudy getting some nice double team moves in to start, until King got a cheap running knee to Cloudy. Titus and King are great at working a crowd. King killed Cloudy with a big lariat, but Cloudy rolled under a second one and made the hot tag to Cheech, who came in and cleaned house. Cheech with a nice superkick followed by he and Cloudy doing the Quebecers’ old finisher for 2. Cloudy got tossed off the top rope and onto the guardrail hard, and Titus and King finished Cheech with a doubleteam powerbomb/blockbuster.
-Eddie Kingston defeated Sami Callahan. Kingston was crazy over with the crowd and looked in better shape than when he wrestled Jigsaw last year. This was really stiff as both men took turns smacking the taste out of one another’s mouth. Callahan got busted open and it looked hardway. Kingston hit a spinning backfist for the win.
-Bobby Dempsey squashed Orange Cassidy in about 30 seconds with a Death Valley Driver.
-Necro Butcher defeated Jimmy Jacobs by disqualification. Necro came out with a staplegun, but the referee took it away from him before the match. Jimmy tried to shake hands, so Necro did…then socked him in the face. Necro continued pummeling him in the ring then on the floor, but Jimmy got a belly-to-back suplex on the floor then put a plastic bag over Necro’s head. Jimmy went for the spear, but Necro just decked him in the face, then hit a chokeslam and tiger driver, but instead of going for the win, he went and grabbed the staplegun. Brodie Lee ran in for the DQ.
