Ring of Honor live event
Rostraver, Pa.
Report by Dot Net reader Ronnie Detore

There were roughly 300-500 people in attendance. Kevin Kelly was the ring announcer. There is no air conditioning in the building at Rostraver Ice Gardens. 

1. Jay Lethal beat Kyle O'Reilly. Good opener that saw Lethal win clean. Great back and forth action. O'Reilly cut promo before hand. Strong heel potential. 

2. Mike Mondo beat Kenny King, "The Prodigy" Mike Bennett, and Mike Sydal in a four corner survival match. Not much action when Bennett was in ring. Sydal is a good athlete who looks a lot like Brian Pillman, yet his look is very much bush league.

3. ROH TV Champion Adam Cole defeated Pepper Parks. A match that was just kind of there. Cole won and parks held his own. The name doomed him with the crowd from the start. I expected a better match for Cole coming off his pay-per-view match. 

4. Eddie Edwards over Tommaso Ciampa. Edwards won a back and forth match. Ciampa continues the psychotic gimmick and attacked his Embassy teammates. Edwards was super over with crowd. 


5. Jimmy Jacobs defeated B.J. Whitmer via countout. Whitmer held his own and cut a "this isn't over promo," but the match itself was more outside brawling. 

6. Charlie Haas defeated Rhett Titus. Haas wins via pin fall. Lots of stalling by Haas. Titus was very sloppy and a lot of missed spots from him, including a neck breaker spot that saw Haas fall first before move was applied. A fan jumped railing after Haas but no altercation took place. 

7. Michael Elgin and Rhino defeated The Briscoes. The crowd was split for the Briscoes and Rhyno. Elgin won the crowd over with a spot that had him pick up both Briscoes at once. 

8. Kevin Steen defeated Roderick Strong to retain the ROH Title. Steen won with F-5. Good action, and crowd was pro Steen entire time.
