Episode #355 of Ring of Honor television was taped at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York City last month.
Cody Rhodes started off the show in a brief backstage promo talking about allowing Titan to survive and crawl back to CMLL.
Women of Honor Champion Sumie Sakai & Stella Grey defeated Riley Shepard & Gabby Ortiz
Grey and Sakai had the early advantage and double-teamed Ortiz until they were cut off. Sakai got a tag and came in and landed a double clothesline, a dropkick off the top, and a swinging neckbreaker, but Shepard recovered. Grey came in and landed a spear.
This one broke down until Sakai came in and landed the Smashmouth on Shepard for the win.
A video package aired showing the Cheeseburger vs. Bully Ray feud. Cheeseburger has defeated Bully Ray twice already, although the wins were via disqualification and countout.
Bully Ray defeated Cheeseburger in a no DQ match
Bully Ray came in during Cheeseburger's entrance and landed a low blow before the bell even rang. He hit Cheeseburger with a trash can and continued to beat him down, which included Bully standing on his crotch while he was in the Tree of Woe. Bully laid waste to Burger with a kendo stick. He even threatened Cary Silkin and referee Todd Sinclair. However, Bully made an error and turned his back, which gave Cheeseburger the opportunity to grab the kendo stick and lay waste to Bully.
The size difference was too great, however, and Bully powerbombed Cheeseburger easily and then used a chain as a weapon. Sinclair tried to get him to stop, so Bully hit him as well.
From the announce desk, Colt Cabana had seen enough and made the save by spearing Bully. The crowd went nuts for Cabana, who held Bully down so Cheeseburger could use a cheese grater on him. Cabana helped Cheeseburger put a table in the ring, but Bully came back, set up the table, and went for a splash, but Cheeseburger moved and Bully went through the table himself.
It appeared that Cheeseburger had him beat again, but Bully kicked out at two. Cheeseburger looked for the palm strike, but Bully landed the big boot for the pin.
Caprice Coleman’s Pulpit aired with guests The Kingdom. They offered Coleman some blood wine and then talked about a conspiracy. Coleman told a confusing story and claimed there was no conspiracy. Then everyone yelled at each other until Vinny Marseglia popped a balloon.
Two vignettes aired. The first was SoCal Uncensored griping about the Kingdom. The second was The Dawgs shaking down a stagehand for six dollars.
Cody defeated Titan
Brandi Rhodes and Burnard the Business Bear accompanied Cody. Cody stalled for a while and Titan showed off with some kip ups. Some evenly matched grappling started it off until Titan did a handstand and Cody kicked him and took over. Titan landed a springboard crossbody, but both Burnard and Brandi interfered to keep Titan from gaining control.
Burnard interfered again, but Cody accidentally clotheslined him -- which allowed Titan to do a moonsault to the floor on both of them. Back in the ring, Cody landed a big boot and told Brandi to throw in the hairspray. Titan grabbed it instead, but Cody nailed the Disaster Kick.
Titan kicked out and fired back, but Cody grabbed Titan and unmasked him. That allowed Cody to roll him up for the pin.
