Ring of Honor TV taping results

Results submitted by Jacob Solomon, PWTorch correspondent
Episode 1 taping
- The Briscoes and the majority of the ROH locker room comes out while Jay talks about ROH losing its identity and being plagued by honor-less actions such as run-ins, title controversy, and cheap tactics to win. He says since Cornette is on the shelf, there needs to be a matchmaker to run the show. Nigel McGuinness enters the ring and says he is the matchmaker and talks about what ROH was about then and why it should still be about it now. Nigel makes Steen vs. El Generico and S.C.U.M. vs. Rhett Titus & B.J. Whitmer vs. Caprice & Coleman for Final Battle. The World Title match will be a ladder war. Steen, Corino, Jacobs, and Lethal were not surrounding the ring during this.
(1) MsChif beat Allysin Kay.
(2) Roderick Strong beat Tadarius Thomas.
Nigel showed-off the newly-designed ROH TV Title.
(3) Adam Cole beat Kyle O'Reilly.
Episode 2 taping
(1) Caprice Coleman & Cedric Alexander beat World's Greatest Tag Team (Charlie Haas & Shelton Benjamin).
(2) Bobby Fish beat Ryan McBride.
Kyle O'Reilly attacked Davey Richards after the two of them seemingly reconciled in the ring. Bobby Fish then helped Kyle.
(3) ROH tag champions S.C.U.M. beat Rhett Titus & B.J. Whitmer to retain the ROH Tag Titles.
Episode 3 taping
(1) The Briscoes beat The Headbangers.
(2) Q.T. Marshall beat Adam Page.
Prince Nana ripped off R.D. Evans's clothes and Nigel made Nana vs. R.D. for Final Battle.
(3) Michael Elgin beat Davey Richards.
Episode 4 taping
(1) Kyle O'Reilly & Bobby Fish beat The Bravados.
(2) Jay Lethal beat Chris Silvia.
(3) ROH champion Kevin Steen beat Mike Bennett to retain the ROH World Title.
Episode 5 taping
(1) Davey Richards beat Vinny M.
Kevin Kelly interviewed Mike Mondo in-ring. Strong kicked Mondo, then Elgin came out to stop Strong.
(2) Jay Briscoe beat Steve Corino in a Steel City Street Fight. Jimmy Jacobs and Mark Briscoe both came out during the street fight. Mark brought out a wheelbarrow full of chairs and threw them in the ring. Jay superplexed Corino off the top rope onto a ring barrier propped up on chairs for the win. Corino looked to be legitimately hurt after the match and crawled backstage.
Kevin Steen cut an in-ring promo about his match with El Generico at Final Battle.
- I would estimate around 400 people at the show, similar to the last house show in Belle Vernon a few months ago.
- Richards-Elgin was by the far the best match of the night. It wasn't nearly as long or good as their Showdown in the Sun match, but was still very entertaining.
- El Generico and Maria were not in attendance. (Maria was booked for Crossfire show in Nashville.)
- Nigel did limited commentary throughout the night, apparently because of his new position. Another commentator came out that I did not recognize with Kevin Kelly.
- A second report on Saturday's TV taping reported here at PWPonderings.com.
Updated Final Battle 2012 iPPV line-up
- Kevin Steen vs. El Generico in Ladder War for the ROH World Title.
- S.C.U.M. vs. Coleman & Alexander vs. the Briscoes for the ROH Tag Titles.
