ROH on HDNet Report 08.23.2010 – Featuring Kevin Steen, Jerry Lynn, The Embassy

Okay gang, welcome back to the Pulse.  I’m Kyle Sparks and here’s the deal with this week’s ROH on HDNet Report.  This one will, unfortunately, be little more than results for the show last night, as, unfortunately, I was unable to see it due to a conflict with rehearsing for a play in my private life.  As you can no doubt see, I am a true renaissance man.  As HDNet is a bit of an obscure network, no one else was able to cover it for me.  The next time this should be an issue will be September 27th, and with any luck, accommodations can be made or my VCR can be rigged in such a way as to allow to tape HDTV.  I know you come here to read wrestling and not excuses, but the inability to tape the show was something I was not counting on, and I apologize to my readership, however big or small it may be.  Now, on to the results.

The Briscoe Brothers (Mark & Jay) def. Alex Anthony & Bobby Shields
By all reports, this was as big a squash as you’d expect.  The Briscoes utterly dominated, and despite my wife’s best efforts to take notes in lieu of the VCR being unable to work for us, she did not have a lot of detail regarding who specifically got the win for the Briscoes.  Unfortunately, the ROH Forum isn’t significantly more helpful (though nice).  Squash match, won by the Briscoes as they build toward the inevitable rematch with the Kings of Wrestling, I’m sure.

Kevin Steen (w/o Steve Corino) def. Jerry Lynn
Steen was out by himself for this one, which, as the fantastic Ricardo Rochetti points out was apparently a strong match that picked up steam and showed good chemistry between Steen and Lynn, two men who have actually never met in ROH before.  Steen picked up the victory after a thrusting distraction (It’s a must, don’tcha know) from Rhett Titus, proving that Lynn’s issues with the All-Night Express and the “Greatest Manager in the World” aren’t quite over yet.

The Embassy (Shawn Daivari (W), Mr. Ernesto Osiris, Necro Butcher & Erick Stevens) def. Kory Chavis (L), Jon Davis, Rasche Brown & Grizzly Redwood
Again, I direct to the great Ricardo, who said the match felt a little disjointed and odd, but the crowd was into it, so what the hell, right?  Finish saw Daivari hit a low blow on Kory Chavis and roll him up in a small package for the 3 count.  That type of finish implies the FEUD MUST CONTINUE, but according to PWInsider, Rasche Brown has quit ROH.  So it’ll be interesting to see where they go from here, or if they just let the issue die off.

Again, I’d like to apologize profusely for the technical and personal difficulties that caused me to miss this week.  Ricardo and I have proved in the past that our thoughts are virtually identical on most things ROH related, so between these results and his 10 thoughts, you should still get a solid ROH experience.  I apologize again, and look forward to seeing everyone under more normal circumstances next week!
