Ring of Honor presented Glory by Honor. We had a solid hour of hard-hitting wrestling…not a bit of “Sports Entertainment” in sight. Smile.

Roll the Opening Montage!

Nigel McGuinness and Kevin Kelly were at ringside for this night of fantastic action. Hopefully, Steve Corino will return soon. Welcome to Kalamazoo, MI.

Cedric Alexander (w/Veda Scott) vs ACH

Kevin Kelly chatted with ACH. Kevin asked what would happen in the finale of the Best of Five Series. ACH said he would walk in with the same attitude he has had against A.J. Styles and Samoa Joe but he was planning on walking out the winner.

Veda Scott was behind Kevin and Nigel, grumbling. Veda complained that the top rope was covered in baby oil. Nigel was fed up with Veda’s crap and told her to leave.

Will Ferrara vs Caprice Coleman

Prince Nana recently gave an envelope to Caprice. Coleman has been acting strangely, lately. Caprice praised Will Ferrara for his rise. Caprice seemed to show some jealousy before the match started. Code of Honor Handshake.

Prince Nana handed Will Ferrara an envelope, after the match. Is Nana building a new stable?

Inside RoH was hosted by Adam Cole, this week. He calls it Storytime. I prefer Mandy Leon. Adam discussed his feud with Kyle O’Reilly. Adam bragged about beating Kyle in last week’s Triple Threat. Adam went back to 2012 for a Future Shock match. Adam saw the scar on his face, from that match, was a badge of honor. Adam promised to eliminate Kyle O’Reilly from Ring of Honor.

Kevin Kelly interviewed Prince Nana. Nana would not disclose what was in the envelope but it suggested that a new faction, the Age of Enlightenment, may be in the offing. Prince Nana wanted it know that he was far from done.

Rhett Titus and Kenny King came out to face the Briscoes All-Star Extravaganza. ANX won the match, shocking many.
