Toronto. - In a weekend full of wrestling in our great city, Ring of Honor started the festivities with their Summer Supercard which featured on of Canada's greats Pierre Carl Oulett whose extensive track in the ring transcends all boundaries.
The match content was great and the technical wrestling skills were amazing. The only thing that could be argued is that there were various interruptions during the matches that were evident and diluted the excitement in the arena.
As far as the matches went three truly highlighted the evening. The first was the World Television Title match, the World Heavyweight Championship and by far probably the show stopper and the one that had the fans on their feet through its whole duration was the Trios match of the CML that showcased not just wrestling ability but spectacular acrobatics that many of the present probably have never seen.
The attendance for Friday night’s ROH Summer Supercard show was said to be a little over 1,000.
As far as the result of the matches, here they are:
PCO & Brody King defeated Vinny Marseglia via pin
Marty Scurll defeated PJ Black via pin
Bandido & Mark Haskins defeated Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham via submission
No DQ Match: Rush defeated Dalton Castle via pin
Stuka Jr, Soberano Jr, & Caristico defeated Hechicero, Templaro, & Cavernario via submission
ROH Women of Honor Title Match:
Champion Kelly Klein defeated Tasha Steelz via pin
ROH TV Title Match: Champion Shane Taylor defeated Tracy Williams via pin
ROH Title Match: Champion Matt Taven defeated Alex Shelley via pin
ROH Tag Team Title Ladder War:
Champions The Briscoes defeated The Guerrillas of Destiny
In conclusion, ROH is presenting a good product but it needs to elevate its production with some flare and music or videos that will enhance the atmosphere of the event.
