It’s time once again for your weekly ROH on HDNet recap! So, sit back, relax, open a cold one, and get ready for RING OF HONOR WRESTLING!
Here’s how things went down this week:
-This week’s show starts off with a video recap of Eddie Edwards taking on Christopher Daniels for the ROH TV title! This was a great match last week that saw Christopher Daniels become the new ROH TV Champion!
-In the ring, Jim Cornette introduces the two competitors in last week’s TV title match, Eddie Edwards and the new TV champion, Christopher Daniels! Cornette starts off by asking Daniels about the match last week. Daniels thanks the fans for being the new champion! Daniels goes on by saying that Edwards is a true competitor and that the TV title is relevant because of Eddie Edwards holding the title first! Daniels continues to praise Edwards and tells him that the match last week could have gone either way! Daniels then tells Edwards that he deserves a rematch with more time! Cornette turns to Edwards and Eddie tells everyone that Daniels is one of the best wrestlers in the world today! Edwards tells Daniels that he has done something that no one else has done and that’s taking away the TV title from him. Edwards continues and says that anyone can beat anyone once, but no one can beat Eddie Edwards twice! Edwards goes on and says that the rematch will be with more time and 2 out of 3 falls!!! Cornette says that there will be a rematch and when it takes place, it will be 2 out of 3 falls with a 30 minute time limit!!
After both men shake hands, music hits and out comes “The Prodigy” Mike Bennett with his trainer, Brutal Bob Evans! Cornette tells Bennett that its not his time to come out and he has no business being out in the ring! Bennett says that he had to come out because what he was watching in the ring was the most boring piece of television he has ever seen in his life! Bennett continues to run his mouth and calls both men sissies! Bennett continues to run his mouth as the fans chant, “YOU CAN’T WRESTLE!!” Bennett tells the fans to shut up because they paid to see him! Bennett then continues to tell Edwards and Daniels that whoever comes out on top in the rematch has to deal with The Prodigy next! Daniels grabs the mic and tells Bennett that he may understand what goes on in a gym, but he doesn’t quite grasp the concept of what it takes to wrestle in an ROH ring! Daniels continues and tells Bennett that you don’t earn title shots because of big muscles, you have to earn it! Daniels then tells Bennett that he’s been winning championships in pro wrestling while Bennett was picking his nose in 2nd grade English! Daniels then tells Bennett to respect the men that came before him! Bennett comes back and tells everyone to deal with the fact that 2011 is the year of The Prodigy!
-Backstage, Kyle Durden informing us about the Top Prospect Tournament starting next week. The tournament will consist of young stars battling it out for a chance at great things in ROH like a title shot. Steve Corino is standing with him and Durden doesn’t understand why. Corino says that the tournament is near and dear to his heart. He says that Kevin Steen was in the tournament before and it ended up making Steen the freak he is today. Corino informs us that he doesn’t want that to happen to the young stars in this tournament. Corino says he will be there for the tournament next week!
“THE PRODIGY” MIKE BENNETT def. GRIZZLY REDWOOD
-The same video from last week featuring the Kings of Wrestling, All Night Express, the Briscoe Brothers, and Haas & Benjamin is shown. These are the teams featured in the main event tonight and the 9th Anniversary show! ROH known for their great tag team wrestling!
-Backstage, ROH World Heavyweight Champion Roderick Strong (with Truth Martini and Michael Elgin) cuts a promo about being with him, being able to trust Elgin, and tells everyone that with all these men standing behind him, he can’t loose! “…And that my friends, is the TRUTH!”
8-MAN TAG TEAM MATCH
BRISCOE BROTHERS & HAAS AND BENJAMIN vs. THE ALL NIGHT EXPRESS (KENNY KING & RHETT TITUS) & ROH WORLD TAG TEAM CHAMPIONS – THE KINGS OF WRESTLING
WINNERS: NO CONTEST
*The reason for the result of the main event was due to the fact that the Kings and The All Night Express went after each other! Haas and Benjamin got into it with the Briscoe’s as well! There was no winner in this contest!
*Sorry guys, due to time constraints in my world, there will be no final thoughts this week. I will give you my final thoughts in next week’s recap! Thanks for reading and remember, go support your local independent wrestlers! ROH and other Indy wrestling organizations is were the real action is!
