Here are the quick results from last night’s ROH on HDNet:
–Jim Cornette announces the HOLIDAY GAUNTLET. Out of a hat with 16 of the top names in ROH, they chose 8. Similar to a Royal Rumble, those 8 individuals would compete in the order in which their names were drawn with the winner getting $10,000.
Jay Briscoe vs. Rhett Titus vs. Steve Corino vs. Christoper Daniels vs. Davey Richards vs. Claudio Castagnoli vs. Chris Hero vs. Roderick Strong
Briscoe draws number 1, Corino draws number 2
-Briscoe def. Corino with a rollup at 5:41. Afterwards, the referee asks for the Code of Honor to be followed and instead of shaking Jay’s hand, Corino cheap shots him. A fine heel.
Christopher Daniels draws number 3
-Daniels def. Briscoe by pinfall after countering the Jay Driller and countering with the Angels Wings at 12:45.
Rhett Titus draws number 4
-Daniels def. Titus by pinfall with the Best Moonsault Ever at 19:04.
Davey Richards draws number 5
-Richards def. Daniels by pinfall after an overhead German suplex and Buzzsaw kick at 26:06.
Claudio Castagnoli draws number 6
-Richards def. Castagnoli by pinfall after countering a Ricola Bomb into a sunset flip at 32:04.
Chris Hero draws number 7
-Richards def. Hero by pinfall after Hero tried to use the loaded elbow pad and Davey countered into a small package at 39:12. After the match, Richards goes after Shane Hagadorn and gets clocked by Hero with the elbow pad for good measure.
ROH champion Roderick Strong draws number 8
-Strong def. Richards via pinfall with the running forearm and the Sick Kick at 43:45.
Technically, only one match this week and on a roughly hour-long show, it goes nearly 45 minutes. If you’re a wrestling fan, that’s awesome. If you’re a member of the CeNation, this probably wasn’t the show for you.
-Next week’s ROH on HDNet will be a Best of 2010 clip show.
