EOTR TV Reviews: ROH 11/26/16

By @Headliner5

Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the ROH TV review from yours truly. It's been a while, but sometimes real life gets in the way of wrestling. However, we are back to it and without any further hesitation, let's get down to business.

We start the show and head to the ring almost immediately for the first match of the night.

Match 1
Lio Rush vs. Jonathan Gresham

The match begins with neither man able to get a clear-cut advantage and both scrambling to maintain control over the other. Both guys trade headlock takeovers before locking arms and ending at a stalemate as neither was able to take the other over. Gresham eventually gets the arm drag before hitting an Enziguri. Lio rolls to the outside of the ring and Gresham follows it up with a moonsault to the outside of the ring. Rush goes back into the ring and hops up onto the top rope and eventually makes his way to the apron where he kicks Gresham off of the apron to the outside.  Back in the ring Rush gets a near fall, Lio hits an Enziguri of his own to Gresham while Gresham was on the top rope.  Lio goes for a hurricanranna but Gresham rolls through it to get a near fall. Gresham follows that up with a brainbuster for another near fall. Rush recovers and hits a Rush Hour and immediately follows it up with another as the first one didn't look very good and seemed very rushed (pun not intended). Lio Rush climbs to the top rope and hits an elbow drop from the top to pick up the win via pinfall.

Match Result: Lio Rush defeats Jonathan Gresham via pinfall after Rush Hour

Match Rating: *1/2

This match could have been a lot better than it actually was, but some blown spots and redoing said spots hurt the rating a lot. Rush is good but needs to slow down a bit.

After the match, the Motor City Machine Guns come into the ring and talk about how good Gresham and Rush both are before taking the spotlight away from them in order to hype their upcoming match at Final Battle as they team with Donovan Dijak to take on the Cabinet.

From there, we cut to a video package of Kyle O'Reilly talking about his upcoming world title match at Final Battle against his former Future Shock teammate Adam Cole.
Next, we go into the second match of the night and our main event.

Main Event - Match 2
The Addiction vs. The Briscoe Brothers 

The match begins with Frankie and Jay in the ring and they begin with some back and forth action before Frankie hits Jay with a dropkick. Frankie and Jay both tag out to Christopher and Mark, Mark hits two shoulder blocks on Daniels in succession before Daniels comes back with a trifecta of arm drags.  Mark finds himself trapped in the addictions corner which brings in Jay the referee tries to get Jay out of the ring but eventually it breaks down and ends up with all four guys fighting on the outside of the ring.  Still on the outside and Jay whips Frankie into the waiting boot of Mark Briscoe before going to a commercial break.  Back from break and we are now inside of the ring where the Briscoe's hit Frankie with a double boot in the corner of the ring.  Jay runs off of the ropes and hits Frankie with a standing elbow to score a near fall. The Addiction comes back with a combination of offensive maneuvers on Jay before Frankie caps off the sequence with a double stomp to Jay's back as Jay was kneeling in the ring. Daniels hits a Moonsault and Kazarian hits a leg drop on Mark but Jay runs in to break up the resulting pinfall attempt before we head to another break. Back from commercial and The Addiction once again has the advantage. Jay Briscoe finds himself caught in The Addiction's corner but he's able to roll all the way to the opposite side of the ring in order to tag in his waiting brother Mark.  Jay Briscoe hits a Neck breaker on Kazarian before getting hit with a stomp by Daniels. Daniels follows it up by diving to the outside of the ring to nail Mark Briscoe with a suicide dive.  Mark climbs back on the apron and eventually gets tagged into the match; he hits Kazarian with a clothesline and follows it up with a Uranagi for a near fall.  The Briscoe's set up for a Doomsday Device but Frankie is able to catch Jay in mid air with a powerslam for a near fall in a really cool spot. The match ends when Jay hits Daniels with a Jay Driller and Mark hits Frankie with a Froggy Bow to pick up the win via pinfall.

Match Result: The Briscoe's defeat The Addiction via pinfall after a Jay Driller Froggy Bow combination

Match Rating: ***

Really good match here, though it's not a match you should go out of your way to see, but if you have some time I would definitely recommend checking it out.

Finally, we are treated to story time with Adam Cole Bay Bay, this was a pretaped promo from Cole where he said that last year after his match with Kyle O'Reilly that he would do anything he could to in order to recapture the World Title which he was able to do.  He also said that O'Reilly would never get a world title shot and he was right up until now. Cole goes on to say that after he beats O'Reilly, O'Reilly will be nothing and he will have to admit that he is a loser, which brings an end to the show for the week.

A two match show which is welcomed by me and we had two great promos from both Kyle O'Reilly and Adam Cole hyping up their match at Final Battle which takes place on December 2nd so this was technically the Go Home Show for Final Battle which takes place on Friday Night.

That however will do it for me and another ROH TV review.  I hope you'll check out this week's show, as it's some great stuff and an easy way to kill an hour. I'll see you next time for another look at ROH TV.
