Raised in Sandy Fork

MATCH #1: Jay Briscoe vs. Mark Briscoe, Honor Invades Boston, 8.24.02

They immediately start by slapping each other in the face. Mark is only 17 at this point, which is why he couldn’t wrestle on the Philadelphia ROH shows but he’s able to now that they’re in Boston. They take it down to the mat and Mark has the advantage, since he’s the one with the most to prove. Jay goes after the arm but Mark fights back with a Northern Lights Suplex for two. The elder Briscoe responds with a big boot to the face that sends his little brother regrouping to the floor. Jay joins Mark out there and pays for it, as Mark takes control, whipping Jay into the barricade and the ring apron. Mark trash talks his brother as he punches his now bloody forehead. Back in the ring Jay fires up and hits a dropkick and a hard clothesline. Mark responds with a belly-to-belly suplex. He continues to attack the head, wearing down his older brother. Mark hits a nasty DDT for two. Jay recovers way too fast and hits a low dropkick and stomps the hand. He follows with a gourdbuster and then goes up top, but Mark knocks him down. Mark hits a springboard Ace Crusher for a two-count. He follows with a Tombstone Piledriver, which the commentators don’t even call! This is ridiculous. More

PRESHOW MATCH: Empty Arena Match – Kevin Steen vs. Cliff Compton

This match is actually on the Best in the World 2013 DVD. This starts off as a Kevin Steen interview conducted by Veda Scott. Steen talks about how important he is to Ring of Honor and how all the guys make money here because of him. So even if they don’t like him he doesn’t care. For some reason S.C.U.M. comes out, and they’re nearly in full force with Steve Corino, Cliff Compton, Jimmy Jacobs, Rhett Titus, and RHINO. Compton challenges Steen to fight, and it’s a good thing Paul Turner and Todd Sinclair are around trying to break it up. Michael Elgin, BJ Whitmer, and Jay Lethal come out to see what all the commotion is about. Compton calls Steen a pussy, and them’s fightin’ words.

Austin Aries 2

~Disc 1~

MATCH #1: Austin Aries vs. Go Shiozaki, 6th Anniversary Show, 2.23.08

They feel each other out to start, as this is the first time these two have faced each other. Shiozaki in fact made his U.S. Ring of Honor debut last night, having only appeared on shows in England and Japan before this. Shiozaki lands the first big blow with a hard chop, which is something he’s known for. Aries fights back but Shiozaki is one tough dude. Shiozaki misses a chop and Aries dumps him to the floor. Aries flies down with an elbow off the top rope. He sets Shiozaki in a chair and hits running double knees to the chest. Aries then hits a side Russian Legsweep right into the ring post. He drapes Shiozaki across the apron and hits a knee to the back of the head. Back in the ring Aries covers for two. Aries continues the abuse, focusing on the back. Shiozaki fights back with a drop toehold into the ropes and then a boot to the back of the head. He hits a shoulder tackle off the top rope. Shiozaki works Aries over, making sure to throw some chops of course. He locks on a Sleeper and adds some chops when Aries won’t pass out. Shiozaki covers for two. Aries comes back with a unique Stunner out of the corner. Shiozaki recovers first though and unloads with more strikes, including a huge flying knee. They fight to the apron and Aries is able to hit Shiozaki with a belly-to-back suplex to the floor! Aries follows with the Heat Seeking Missile. Back inside the ring Aries goes up top and hits a missile dropkick for two. A series of reversals ends with Shiozaki hitting a bridging German Suplex for a near-fall. Shiozaki hits a big superkick and two chops directly to the head for a two-count. Aries comes back with four straight IEDs. He goes for a superplex but Shiozaki counters to a super Side Effect! That gets a near-fall. Shiozaki follows with a bodyslam but misses a beautiful moonsault. Aries locks on the Horns of Aries and Shiozaki reaches the ropes. Now Aries goes up top again and Shiozaki blasts him with a chop. Shiozaki goes up but Aries knocks him down and hits a chop to the top of the head. Aries goes for the Brainbuster but Shiozaki counters to the Orange Crush for a two-count. Both men rise and trade lariats. Shiozaki’s lands a little big harder. Aries hits a belly-to-back suplex and then a series of elbows in the corner. He follows with a Brainbuster for two. More

Honor in the Heart of Texas

San Antonio Shrine Auditorium – San Antonio, Texas – June 1, 2013

PRESHOW MATCH: Ricky Starks & Carson vs. AJ Summers & Rudy Russo

Carson has his name on his trunks, which is very helpful since I don’t know any of these four guys. He starts with Russo, who takes advantage and the crowd cheers so I guess they are the babyfaces. Starks tags in and Russo continues the advantage. Summers comes in for some double-teaming. He drills Starks with a nasty DDT. Summers neglects to cover and gets hit with a kick in the face and a half nelson suplex for it. Starks is wise enough to cover but he only gets two. Carson tags back in and continues to wear Summers down. Starks comes in and pulls a Kleenex or something out of his tights and spits on it, then rubs the spit in Summers’ face. That’s just gross. Summers fights back (sort of) and makes the tag. Russo is a house afire, dropkicking Carson to the floor. More
