ROH Death Before Dishonor 2018

September 22, 2017
Las Vegas, Nevada
Sam’s Town Live
  • 8:05pm- Did that opening video feel very WCW to anyone else?
  • 8:08pm- Jushin Thunder Liger. Wow.
  • 8:12pm- Ring of Honor PPVs are starting to look a lot like NJPW shows and that’s not a bad thing.
  • 8:22pm- And now a mention of Liger versus Brian Pillman! Is this the rebirth of WCW?
  • 8:32pm- Heel turn for Kenny King in his hometown. Nice twist to start the show.
  • 8:43pm- Addiction versus The Briscos is a great match on paper.
  • 8:47pm- Since when did the Briscos become the Wyatts?
  • 8:55pm- The timing of these four guys is incredible.
  • 8:57pm- A nice and physical match from these four veterans.
  • 9:12pm- It always seems as if Tenille is always a challenger and never a champion. I wonder if she will turn out to be the female Drew McIntyre for WWE.
  • 9:17pm- Sumie reminds me a lot of Ivory with her veteran presence.
  • 9:30pm- Like her or not, you have to feel for Tenille & the timing of this injury. Here’s hoping this is an instance of absence makes the heart grow fonder.
  • 9:38pm- I love me some Chris Sabin but Punishment Martinez is special. And ROH should be banking on him.
  • 9:42pm- Does anyone else get a ‘Roman Reigns-pre-main event run’ feel from Martinez? Does that make sense?
  • 9:54pm- Good underdog story but the right man won that match.
  • 9:55pm- WOW Jeff Cobb reminds me of ECW-era Taz. Dominant & scary.
  • 10:02pm- Good God that was a good promo from Bully Ray. Why hasn’t Tommy Dreamer or someone else hire him to write their TV?
  • 10:12pm- I really like Flip Gordon. He reminds me of a young Prince Devitt/Finn Balor. He has that “it” factor.
  • 10:24pm- This is my first time seeing this new Okada. I hate it.
  • 10:26pm- I don’t like how the Bullet Club have morphed into a bunch of guys who ride together. I loved when there was some semblance of coordination between them all, even if it was all of them just wearing the same shirt.
  • 10:29pm- Adam Page reminds me of a young James Storm and that’s not a bad thing at all.
  • 10:37pm- Damn Nick Aldis is going to town on Cody on commentary.
  • 10:45pm- 2-out-of-3 falls Aldis/Rhodes is going to be terrific. Great move by NWA.
  • 10:58pm- I haven’t seen Lethal this well matched with anyone in years.
  • 11:12pm- That chop spot followed by the strike fest & dive was incredible. Just confirmed how much Osprey has grown.
  • 11:21pm- The Os-Cutter near fall popped me. I thought it was over.
  • 11:26pm- I think I heard some boos when Lethal won. Feels like Osprey won everyone over.
  • 11:31pm- Matt Taven looked like kinda bad at the end of the that match honestly. It feels like Osprey stole the spotlight tonight.
