Ring Of Honor: Hartford & NYC Results!!!

Hartford & NYC Results!!!
Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Ring Of Honor returned to action on the weekend before Christmas with two huge events. 12/22/06 saw ROH's debut in Hartford, CT at the CT Expo Center for two title matches. Here are results:

1) Jason Blade defeated Pelle Primeau with a moonsault.

2) Austin Aries defeated Eddie Edwards, who looked good in his ROH debut.

3) Adam Pearce defeated Delirious with help from brass knuckles and Shane Hagadorn. Pelle Primeau tossed Hagadorn to Delirious after the match so Delirious could get a measure of revenge.

4) BJ Whitmer & Daizee Haze defeated Jimmy Jacobs & Mercedes Martinez when Haze pinned Martinez, who was knocked out by a BJ Whitmer lariat. Martinez needed to be taken to the hospital in an ambulance and was released later in the night with a severe concussion. Brent Albright attacked Whitmer after the match and Colt Cabana made the save leading to:

5) Colt Cabana defeated Brent Albright

6) Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli defeated Jay & Mark Briscoe when Larry Sweeney made his surprise debut and interfered.

7) ROH World Champion Bryan Danielson won a Four Corner Survival by pinning Nigel McGuinness in a match that included Jimmy Rave and Homicide. Towards the end of the match, Danielson rammed Homicide's already injured shoulder into the ringpost. Homicide never got back into the match due to the injury. Samoa Joe came to ringside to check on Homicide. The referee was distracted by Joe on the outside and didn't count a McGuinness pin on Rave. McGuinness then had words for Joe for distracting the ref. Danielson used this opportunity to tag Rave and then catch Nigel in a small package for the pin. McGuinness was really upset at Joe after the match.

8) Roderick Strong defeated Davey Richards by countout to retain the FIP Heavyweight Title in an excellent match.

9) Christopher Daniels & Matt Sydal retained the ROH World Tag Team Titles by defeating Dragon Gate's CIMA & Shingo in the match of the night.

ROH would like to thank all the fans of Hartford for a great night. ROH will return on May 11th.

The next night, 12/23, saw ROH return to the Manhattan Center in New York City for "Final Battle 2006." The show marked ROH's second consecutive sellout of the Grand Ballroom. The atmosphere was even more electric and crowd reactions even more intense than "Glory By Honor V: Night 2" as Homicide captured the ROH World Title. Here are complete results:

1) The show opened with Santa and some elves throwing out presents to the crowd. Jay & Mark Briscoe hit the ring and destroyed them. Jay then said they wanted Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli after what happened last night in Hartford.

2) Jimmy Rave won a Four Corner Survival by making El Generico tap to the heal hook. The match also included ROH World Tag Team Champion Christopher Daniels and Davey Richards. After the match, Rave said he would take respect by winning the World Title, but Nigel McGuinness jumped him and spit in his face.

3) Adam Pearce defeated Ricky Reyes in an impromptu match. After the match, Pearce and Shane Hagadorn gave Julius Smokes a spike piledriver in an attempt to injure Smokes so he wouldn't be in Homicide's corner for the main event. Pearce guaranteed that Homicide would not win the belt.

4) Jimmy Jacobs & Brent Albright defeated Colt Cabana & BJ Whitmer in a slugfest that saw Albright powerbomb Whitmer from the ring, over the top rope, to the floor, through a table.

5) Jay & Mark Briscoe defeated Chris Hero & Claudio Castagnoli in the show stealing match. Before the match, Hero introduced Larry Sweeney as his sports agent. After the match, Castagnoli surprised everyone and announced that this wasn't his last show and he would stay in ROH. Sweeney told Castagnoli that he only signed Hero to his stable and he and Hero walked off. Samoa Joe then came down to the ring and told Castagnoli to get out of his ring. Castagnoli, shocked that Hero would leave with Sweeney instead of him, left. Joe then challenged NOAH to send a representative to face him when ROH returns to Manhattan on 2/16. McGuinness came out and said he would send word to the NOAH office and if they didn't send anyone, he would fight Joe. Rave then jumped Nigel from behind. Joe separated things and told McGuinness and Rave to fight it out.

6) Rave defeated McGuinness in another show stealer when Nigel tapped to the heal hook. After the bout, Rave spit on Nigel and demanded a World Title Match on 2/16.

7) CIMA, Shingo & ROH World Tag Team Champion Matt Sydal defeated Austin Aries, Roderick Strong & Delirious in a great Dragon Rules Match when CIMA pinned Delirious.

8) Homicide defeated Bryan Danielson to win the ROH World Title in one of the most emotional matches in ROH history. We aren't going to attempt to describe this with words. You needed to be there live to experience it.

ROH wants to thank the great fans of New York City for another sellout of the Manhattan Center and an explosive atmosphere. We'll see you in Manhattan on February 16th.
