RoH: Tag Wars Wrestling Review 12/13/14

By Nathan Neumann (@Headliner5 on Twitter)
Hello ladies and gentleman and welcome to another one of my signature reviews for Ring of Honor Wrestling Television. This week, we’re reviewing Tag Wars, a show which featured three tag team matches in the first round of a tournament that will crown new number one contenders for the ROH World Tag Team Titles currently held by reDRagon. Let’s get to it shall we?
The Briscoes were in a pre-taped backstage promo to open up the show where they talked about how they will be the ones to they will be the ones to win Tag Wars and will receive a future shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles. The Briscoes want to become the nine-time ROH World Tag Team Champions (which may or may not be a wise move at the moment due to the fact that Jay Briscoe is the current holder of the ROH World Championship).
Match 1
The Briscoes (Jay and Mark) vs. J. Diesel and Jay Lethal in a Tag Wars Qualifier
Result: The Briscoes defeat Diesel and Lethal after Jay Briscoe hits J. Diesel with the Jay Driller and Marc follows it up with a top-rope Froggy Bow to score the win.
Thoughts: First off, there were three guys named Jay in this match and I wasn’t a fan of it. It seemed to create some confusion on commentary (rightfully so, because having three guys with the same first name in the same damn match just isn’t a good idea).  J. Diesel tags in right away and takes Marc’s head off with a lariat. Jay Briscoe comes in and delivers a forearm to the face of Diesel as we go to commercial.
Also, ROH needs to stop having their wrestlers do commercials.
Back from commercial and Jay Briscoe kicks Diesel in his (stupid!) face and covers him for a two count. Jay Brsicoe hits a top rope superplex on Lethal and both men are down. Double tags on both sides of the ring bring in Diesel and Marc Briscoe the finish came when Jay Briscoe hit Diesel with the Jay Driller and Marc followed up with the Froggy Bow to score the pinfall victory to advance in Tag Wars.
Rating: **
From there, we go straight into Match 2 as Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer take on Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian.
Match 2
Jimmy Jacobs and BJ Whitmer vs. The Addiction (Christopher Daniels and Frankie Kazarian) in a Tag Wars Qualifier Result: Kazarian picks up the winwith a Kamikaze AKA the KIllswitch AKA the Un-prettier (a/k/a Christian’s finisher in WWE)
The match starts off as TheDecade attack straight from the bell. The match breaks down right away. Whitmer and Daniels in the ring fighting each other while Jacobs and Kazarian are on the outside of the ring. Kazarian hits a flipping neckbreaker on Jacobs on the outside.
Later on, Whitmer and Jacobs both dive to the outside of the ring to take out both Addiction members as we go to commercial.  Back from commercial and the Decade have taken control as they hit a powerbomb/neckbreaker combination that looked a bit mistimed, but it still worked.  Daniels throws Jacobs into Whitmer to make Jacobs spear his own partner.  Kazarian then picks up the win with the, allowing The Addiction to advance.
Rating: **1/2
Back from another commercial and reDRagon cut a backstage promo. They tell everyone that they are not impressed in the slightest with Tag Wars. And now, the main event.
Main Event - Match 3
Matt Sydal and ACH vs. The Young Bucks
Result: Sydal and ACH win the match via shooting star press/450 splash combination after Matt (Jackson) inadvertently superkicks Nick Jackson in the face.
The match starts out hot as ACHis a house of fire! He hits a dropkick on Matt, followed by a bunch of flippy-dos, before tagging in Sydal. But, the Bucks maintain control as we go to break. When we return, the Young Bucks hit a flipping neckbreaker/backbreaker combination on Sydal. Matt (Jackson) gets Sydal in one of the corners of the ring and goes to the opposite corner before running at him and hitting a handspring back elbow.  From there, Jackson holds Matt Sydal upside down and Nick kicks Sydal in the face.
The Bucks move to the outside of the ring and ACH hits a flying moonsault to the outside which takes out both Bucks. Matt (Jackson) hits Sydal on the outside with a tornado DDT using the ring apron. The finish would come when Matt (Jackson) is inadvertently kicked in the face by Nick. Matt Sydal hits a shooting star press as ACH follows it up with a 450 Splash to score the pinfall victory over, arguably, the hottest tag team in the world right now.
Rating: **3/4
