As the days wind down to Ring Of Honor’s biggest show of the year, Final Battle, at the Hammerstein Ballroom on Dec. 2, we could see pieces begin to take shape.

ROH World Champion Adam Cole was on a tear.

While he had foes like Jay Lethal and Kyle O’Reilly on his tail, he seemed destined to go to war with the two of them eventually.

On a show remembered best for some great headline matches, the first thought that’ll come about is the Ladder VI main event that was for the ROH World Tag Team Championships between Champions The Addiction, The Young Bucks and The Motor City Machine Guns.

Lowell, Massachussets was in for a treat.

Rush Hour 

– With his flashy tropical personality, ROH has a star in the making with Dalton Castle. It’s easy to fall for his charm and as much of a spectacle he makes with all the colors and his two “Boys,” you want to see more. He has that effect. This episode focused a lot on Castle and while it was TV filler essentially, there was a golden opportunity to advance Castle’s never-ending feud with Silas Young. Castle’s opening backstage promo chatted up tropical sweets and desire for victories while saying Christopher Daniels would have his heart broken. In a very “Dalton” way, did we actually hype the main event?

A Reborn Rush Of Real Bruising Fury 

– Even though it’s a feud that’ll never end, it hasn’t stopped short of being entertaining with many stipulation bouts that have teetered the momentum both ways. Which feud could we possibly be talking about? Well, it’s the Silas Young-Dalton Castle one of course, with Dalton’s Boys and The Beer City Bruiser thrown in for good measure. This opening tag match with Young/BCB-Boys had some hype for a few weeks now and they upped the ante by having Young put his ROH career on the line out of overconfidence, perhaps placing a little anger from getting attacked from behind by Castle before the bell on that decision. This was a fun match while it lasted, with us getting to see what The Boys could offer in the future if they develop further. Some of their spots didn’t connect and there are times where we wish they could talk and not be ROH’s version of The Usos, but we won’t complain. In the land of Post-ROH-Pay-Per-View TV, this gave a seemingly throwaway show a little reason to watch. We even rooted for The Boys there for a moment, but reality came crashing down in the form of cannonballs, particularly from BCB that finished them off. Given how Castle had to be held back by security before the match, it was logical for him to have a second go at things. This feud won’t die and we’re loving every second of it.

Menage A Trois

– With an eye to the future, we always applaud ROH for spotlighting new talent with the Top Prospect Tournament, since it gives them an early chance to impress fans and officials alike for the ultimate prize of an early career accolade. Even better, some tourney matches would play out on TV, like the one that opened up the show between Brian Fury (17-year veteran who trained Sasha Banks and Donovan Dijak) and Shaheem Ali. Fury had a look about him that looked like a blend of Damien Sandow and The Ascension while Ali reminded us of Shelton Benjamin in his early days. The two did some flashy suplexes, but the big story of the fight was Fury using his “veteran heel status” to use the Referee’s leg to block Ali from hitting a top-rope maneuver, turning the distraction into a moment where he could pull out his Pop-Up Sit-Down Powerbomb finisher to advance.
