ROH Revolution: Canada 5/7/2011 Toronto, Ontario
by Jason “JerseyViper” Namako
Hello everyone, JerseyViper here back with a recap of the 2nd of the Ring of Honor Revolution shows over this weekend, with the 2nd offering coming from the Great White North, in the area where the esteemed “Nobleman of Nudity” and current co-host of the Velvet Room, Mr. Greg McNeish resides in Canada. Once again, big thanks to the people at the show, updating the match-by-match results over on the forum boards at www.rohwrestling.com. Appreciate the help. Now with that out of the way, let’s get on to the show.
Buliding was said to be almost sold out, and a lot of people were standing. Did not announce a return date to the venue in Toronto.
Match Number One: “Very European” Claudio Castangoli defeated Kyle O’Reilly with the Ricola Bomb.
Match Number Two: “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett defeated Steve Corino with a piledriver. Before the match, Corino hinted that his sponsor to help him on his road to recovery might be the return of Kevin Steen to Ring of Honor.
Match Number Three was the debut of a new match in Ring of Honor, called the “Double Danger Scramble”.
The rules of this match are as follows: 6 guys are in this match with 2 guys to start, with the other 4 at each of the 4 corners. Lucha tag rules apply, where if a legal man goes to the outside, another wrestler can come in to replace him. There are no eliminations, unless you are disqualified. To win the match, you have to score 2 pinfalls or submissions.
Michael Elgin w/Truth Martini defeated Adam Cole, Grizzly Redwood, Andy “Right Leg” RIdge, “The Project” Tommaso Ciampa w/The Embassy, and “Addicted to Love” Rhett Titus when Elgin scored 2 consecutive falls on Cole and Ridge after a double Alabama Slam.
Match Number Four: “The American Wolf” Davey Richards defeated “The Pretty Boy Pitbull” Kenny King in a Big Bang return match by submission when King tapped out to RIchards’ ankle lock with the grapevine applied. Before the end of this match, there was a botched spot with a Top Rope German Suplex. Richards left to the back right after the match ended, visibly upset.
The Bravado Brothers come out and run down Cole and O’Reilly for losing their matches this evening. Cole and O’Reilly come out and get into it with the Bravados, until the Bravados get away and head off to the back.
Match Number Five in a Tribute to “Sweet & Sour” Larry Sweeney: Colt “Boom Boom” Cabana defeated the returning Delirious after a “Randy Savage like” flying elbow drop in a comedy match that also saw Referee Todd Sinclair peforming Sweeney’s infamous strut.
Match Number Six: “The Generic Luchador” El Generico defeated ROH TV Champion “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels w/Truth Martini after the Brainbuster.
After the match, Michael Elgin tries to run in and attack Generico, but Steve Corino comes in to hold him off. Corino and Generico have a staredown and Elgin attacks Corino from behind. Elgin continues the assault while Generico walks off not willing to help, still remembering he and Corino’s past history from the year prior. Elgin stands over a fallen Corino.
Match Number Seven for the ROH Tag Titles: Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team(c) defeated The Briscoe Brothers thanks to a distraction from the All Night Express to retain the titles.
Main Event for the ROH World Title: “Die Hard” Eddie Edwards defeated “That Young Knockout Kid” Chris Hero by Knockout to retain the title in a near 40 minute match when Referee Todd Sinclair stopped the match due to Hero passing out in Edwards’ Achilles Lock.
Prior to the match, Shane Hagadorn and Sara Del Rey were ejected from ringside. For this match, Hero, in tribute to Larry Sweeney, who Hero was close to, wore purple and pink ring attire as that was the colors Sweeney wore for his matches.
And that is it for Revolution weekend for Ring of Honor. From these recaps of the shows, it sounds like that ROH is continuing their run of good to great shows after the hiccup in Chicago back in Feburary. I hope they keep it up going back to Chicago in 2 weeks for Supercard of Honor and later next month back in New York for their next IPPV, Best in the World. This has been the 2nd of 2 recaps from ROH’s Revolution weekend, and until a couple weeks from now for Supercard of Honor, this is JerseyViper, saying thanks for reading and later everyone.
