ROH on Comet Results

Results from the 8/10/16 episode of ROH on Comet TV from Philadelphia:

* ROH Champion Jay Lethal retained the ROH Title over Colt Cabana in the main event with the Lethal Injection, finally getting a decisive winner between the two in their rematch from the Global Wars PPV that did not see a winner in their first match. Afterwards, Lethal begged and pleaded with matchmaker Nigel McGuinness to let him defend the ROH Title against Adam Cole in the main event of the Death Before Dishonor XIV PPV on August 19 in Las Vegas, much to Nigel’s dismay, until he finally relented and granted Lethal’s request.

* Mark Briscoe debuted his Chicken Shack talk show segment in response to not wanting to be on Bobby Fish’s Fish Tank to talk their match for the ROH TV Title at Death Before Dishonor XIV. It went on to be an intense back-and-forth exchange between the two as Fish said that he is the WORLD Television Champion and even if Mark beats him for the title, he will still be only known as Jay Briscoe’s younger brother, leading to security having to hold Mark back from Fish.

* Finally, New Japan’s Jay White continued his winning ways since coming into ROH, defeating Will Ferrara in the opener with the Kiwi Crusher.


  1. Jay White is a New Japan “young lion”, or developmental talent, that is in ROH currently on his excursion from New Japan. New Japan young lions will be either brought in from the outside, or trained from scratch at the New Japan Dojo, then will wrestle in all opening matches on New Japan shows, against either another young lion, or a New Japan veteran over the course of one to two years. Once New Japan feels they are ready, they will send them to either the US, CMLL in Mexico, or the UK for their excursion to get more seasoning and experience, which is another year span. Then, they will come back with a new character, name, persona, etc, and begin their ascent up the card. Such recent examples include Takkaki Watanabe, who was in ROH from 2014 to 2015 and is now back as EVIL of Los Ingobernables de Japon, or the most famous and successful example of Kazuchika Okada going to TNA from 2010-2011 and returning as the Rainmaker persona that has led him to 4 IWGP Title reigns and 2 G-1 Climax tournament wins.

  2. Oh, ok. That’s a nice system NJPW is implementing. I remembered Okada’s brief run in TNA. He came a long way. Now he is the star in Japan.
