ROH TV SPOILERS FOR TONIGHT
By Mike Specian on 2012-05-05 09:52:58
These are the live spoilers for this week's ROH TV. This episode was originally filmed at Baltimore's Du Burns Arena on April 7.
Match 1: Thomasa Chiampa (with the Embassy's Prince Nana, Barrister R.D. Evans and Ernesto Osirus) def. Matt Taven in 7:29 - Early in the match, Jay Lethal came to ringside with a chair to observe. After Taven hit a big dive to the outside, Chiampa pulled up the ring mat exposing the floor below, but Taven reversed into a suplex on the cement (or maybe a backdrop, it was tough to see). They traded shots, Taven hit some big kicks, Chiampa took out his shins, and Taven hit a neck breaker off the ropes. Nana provided a slight distraction, but it backfired and Taven got a near fall with a frog splash. Chiampa recovered and hit a muay Thai knee for a 2 count. He followed up with his trademark tree of woe/knee to the head before finishing him off with Project Chiampa.
Match 2: Mike Mondo def. TJ Perkins in 7:18 - At the 6 minute mark, the Young Bucks came to ringside, distracting TJ. Mondo went to the outside and TJ launched himself, taking them all out. AMX came out to neutralize the Bucks, but Mondo hit the Orton DDT from the ropes to get the pin. It seems like there might be a 6-way in our future.
Match 3 - Kevin Steen (with Jimmy Jacobs) def. Kyle O'Reilly in 6:54 - O'Reilly was selling an ankle injury for much of the match. He fought valiantly, but a distraction by Jimmy Jacbos allowed Steen to hit the F5 for the win.
After the match, Davey Richards came out to make the save, but a low blow by Jacobs led to Davey being attacked with Steen's racket on the back multiple times. The referees tried to hold everyone back, but Steen still managed to whack Kyle over the head. After things started to settle, Davey grabbed the mic:
DAVEY: Steen, your death certificate will be signed in Canada. One thing you will never do is take my title. Your days of pretending to be a wrestler are over. Forget American strong style. In Canada, this wolf is coming for you.
