ROH TV results: LFI vs. The Foundation vs. VLNCE UNLTD

Note: This episode of ROH TV debuted on Fox affiliates last Friday, therefore it’s technically behind Best in the World in terms of storyline.

Quinn McKay welcomed us to the broadcast and hyped up Best in the World. McKay revealed that tonight’s card features some big bouts including a huge triple threat tag match pitting LFI against The Foundation against VLNCE UNLTD.

Also, PJ Black vs. Flip Gordon and The Briscoes vs. Joe Keys and Dante Caballero are also on tap. 

The Briscoes defeated Joe Keys and Dante Caballero (6:06)

This was everything you could expect it to be: the Briscoes' first match teaming together in over two months, taking out their ring rust on Keys and Caballero. 

Keys got worked on early and while the Briscoes slaughtered him with multiple double team maneuvers, Caballero stood on the apron in fear of what was to come. Eventually, Keys tagged himself out, allowing his Dojo partner to come in.

Caballero was actually able to get some shots in on Jay and even hit a tilt-a-whirl backbreaker. Jay put an end to Caballero’s string of offense quickly, dropping him on his head and forcing him to tag back out to Keys.

Keys and Mark came in at the same time and had a good back and forth. Both Briscoe brothers eventually hit a Redneck Boogie, but Keys surprisingly kicked out at the last second. Jay followed up with a neckbreaker while Mark hit a Froggy Bow elbow drop for the three count and the win. 

Flip Gordon defeated PJ Black (13:05)

Brian Johnson sat in on commentary. He sounds so much different when he’s not screaming into a mic.

The match was average, but despite both guys holding their own, there was never a good pace that developed. Black hit a nice headscissors takedown that sent Gordon reeling to the outside about three minutes in. Gordon would retaliate with a superkick on Black that sent us into a commercial break.

Back from the break, Gordon was perched on the top turnbuckle with Black. Gordon shoved Black off and hit a backflip shooting star press for a two count. Gordon became more frustrated and poked Black in the eyes which referee Joe Mandak didn’t catch. Gordon followed it up with the Flip 5 and the STF to make Black submit.

La Faccion Ingobernable (Dragon Lee & Kenny King) defeated VLNCE UNLTD (Brody King & Tony Deppen) and The Foundation (Jay Lethal & Jonathan Gresham) (10:42)

King and Lee retreated to ringside as soon as the bell rang, citing a lack of interest because it wasn’t for the Tag Team titles.

Gresham and Deppen started out and immediately took it to the mat. Gresham shrugged off a lot of Deppen’s offense with commentary noting that Gresham seemed to have a chip on his shoulder. 

After a short commercial break, Brody and Lethal became the legal men. Kenny and Lee pulled Lethal out of the ring and suplexed him on the floor before inviting Brody to finish the attack. Brody continued inflicting damage on Lethal in the ring before tagging out to Deppen. 

Deppen received the same treatment from LFI that Lethal did, but Brody chased them off after the fact. Gresham eventually came in for Lethal and had a small run of offense before getting pummeled by Brody. 

After another short break, Lee became the legal man for the first time. He and Gresham had a really good exchange before King came in and picked the bones of “The Octopus." The match reached its closing stages and saw Gresham power bomb Brody who was on the top turnbuckle. While Gresham was recovering, Deppen nailed him with a shining wizard. Deppen went for the pin, but King nailed him with a kick and stole the cover on Gresham for the win. 

Final Thoughts:

Seeing this episode after the BITW PPV made it quite meaningless despite there being some fun wrestling.

A gripe I have with the current faction war between LFI, The Foundation and VLNCE ULTD is that a lot of losses are being dealt out. While commentary will often hype how Gresham is undefeated in singles action at the moment, he’s 9-7 overall and it takes away from the importance of him being undefeated. This also severely affects a guy like Jay Lethal, who is 3-9 overall this year.
