ROH has found a better balance in showing full matches and highlights. However, tonight’s show lacked serious star power. Neither RUSH, Dalton Castle, Jay Lethal, Shane Taylor, Matt Taven, Villain Enterprises, nor LifeBlood was on the show tonight.
It appears ROH still views its television product secondary to the Honor Club viewership. However, the 8-man tag was fun. Josh Woods surprised Silas Young for the victory. Joe Hendry still isn’t over with the American Crowd. He’s too good not to be. Hopefully, he’ll figure out the right balance of humor and serious gimmicks.
Jay Lethal and Jonathan Gresham have made up and promise to go after the tag team titles. Unfortunately, it looks like he might be out with an arm injury for a while.
That time I was face-to-face with a vicious peacock! https://t.co/trVQBNOqLa

Some say AEW’s women’s division is the worst in wrestling, but it’s better than ROH’s. Angelina Love is a talented veteran, but Love, Rose, and Sukai don’t have any business main eventing a television show. The match was fine, but not main event worthy.
Hopefully, at some point, ROH finds a focus and a direction. Right now, it fills like they are stalling for time. For what I don’t know, but ROH still has a great roster in spite of the major departures. They have to figure out how to use it to drive consistent stories on television and balance their live events on Honor Club.
