WHAT HAPPENED, THIS WEEK, @ RING OF HONOR ON DESTINATION AMERICA

Posted August 19th, 2015 by jshannon

Welcome to Wild Wrestling Wednesdays. First up, it’s Ring of Honor.

Roll the Opening Montage.

We are in the hometown of my older brother, Robert, Baltimore, MD. Nigel McGuinness stepped in to replace Steve Corino at the announce desk. Steve is on paid leave, after his confrontation with B.J. Whitmer, last week.

“The Last Real Man” Silas Young vs “The Human Peacock” Dalton Castle

RoH looked at how Castle’s “Boys” got involved in Silas’ match at Death Before Dishonor. The fans popped huge for Castle. This kid looks for all the world like “Rock and Roll” Buck Zomhofe. The Boys helped Castle out of his jumpsuit. Castle tore into Young, before the bell. Castle hit a Knife Edge chop and hard punch. Deep Arm Drag by Castle. Castle pushed Young’s face into the canvas, over and over. Castle with a Knee Strike and Roll Up. Dead Lift German by Castle. Dang. Young rolled out to the floor and The Boys fanned him.

Young yelled at The Boys but Castle came out and attacked. They eventually got back in the ring and Silas unloaded with a Knife Edge Chop and a Whip. Low Bridge and Silas hit the floor. Castle came out and got blasted. The Boys fanned him as Ring of Honor went to commercial.

The men were back in the ring and they were cutting loose with Haymakers and chops. Silas worked over Castle’s lower back. The Boys got on the apron to Fan Up their leader. That seemed to help Castle, well…for a moment. Silas came off the ropes and dropped Castle. Belly to Belly by Castle. Go Behind by Castle but Silas broke free. Castle charged the corner and flew over the top and landed on the floor. Castle got fanned and rolled back in the ring. Knee Driver to Castle’s face. Silas talked serious trash to the flamboyant one. Silas pounded away. Castle lifted Silas and ran them both over the top rope. Fan Up!

Castle stomped Silas in the face and slapped the taste out of his mouth. Silas reversed a Whip but Castle turned it into a Rebound Hurancanrana. Corner Splash and Flying Knee by Castle. Wild Spinning Slam by Castle. Castle ran Silas into the corner. Silas hit a Corner DDT to gain a two count. Silas lifted up Castle for Misery but Castle fought free. Killer Combo by Silas. Silas attacked one of The Boys. That allowed Castle to hit his finisher, a Spinning variation of an Alabama Slam.

Your Winner: Dalton Castle
Honor Roll Ranking: 3.0 out of a possible 5

After the match, Silas cut a promo towards Castle. Silas didn’t like Castle’s lifestyle or Castle’s boys. Silas felt Castle couldn’t beat him without The Boys. Silas put in the stipulation that if/when he wins, he will convert them into Real Men. Castle didn’t immediately accept the match but you just know it is going to happen.

Mandy Leon was back for another installment of Inside R.O.H.. This week, she was showcasing the return of Future Shock (Kyle O’Reilly and Adam Cole). Adam knew The Addiction had messed with reDRagon and The Kingdom for far too long. Adam asked Kyle to reform Future Shock, for one night, to fight Frankie Kazarian and Christopher Daniels. Future Shock won the match. Chris Sabin jumped in and attacked. Next week, Future Shock will face The Addiction for the World tag team titles.

Kevin Kelly talked with Bobby Fish about his upcoming TV Title match. Fish felt he would be facing Hanson for the TV title, since he knew Hanson would take out Jay Lethal. Lethal rushed down and tried to interrupt. Fish dispatched him without a single blow being struck.

RoH discussed the return of the four great stars from New Japan .

Moose with a Tilt-a-Whirl but Will fought out of the slam. Knee Strikes by Moose but Will Booted Moose. Awesome Dropkick by the 300 pounder Moose. They went to the floor and Moose swung Will into the barricade, numerous times. Back in the ring, Moose got a two count.

Will tried to fight back with punches and chops. Moose stopped Will with a European Uppercut. Moose scooped up Will but Ferrara turned it into t a DDT. Crash and Burn DDT out to the floor by Will. Will had a heck of a time getting Moose back in the ring. Moose ran the ropes to launch Will. Moose then set for the Spear and nailed it.
