ROH ON HONOR CLUB is back this Thursday night and it's quite a stacked night! Headlined by a Tag Team Three Way between a trio of the hungry teams all hoping to take advantage of the Adam Cole situation, the night will also feature Billie Starkz looking to even the score with Diamante, Ethan Page and Tony Nese going head-to-head, a Pure Rules contest between Josh Wood and Pat Buck, The Righteous in action, and so much more!
The action begins at 7pm ET/6pm CT and it goes down exclusively on Honor Club, the home for more than 20 years of of ROH's history featuring The Briscoes, Motor City Machine Guns, The Young Bucks, Steen & Generico, The Kings of Wrestling, and so many other great teams who have shaped the last two decades of tag team competition!
THREE WAY TAG MATCH...
The Gates of Agony (Bishop Kaun & Toa Liona) vs. The Workhorsemen (Anthony Henry & JD Drake) vs. Action Andretti & Darius Martin
Despite the injury to Adam Cole that will keep him out of action for months to come, AEW World Champion MJF has elected to carry on as ROH World Tag Team Champion by himself after making a promise to Cole that those belts will be waiting for him when he comes back. We've already witnessed MJF find a way to make it through when he beat The Righteous at WRESTLEDREAM, but with so much on his plate as AEW World Champion, an upcoming fight with Jay White at FULL GEAR 2023, not to mention ROH World TV Champion Samoa Joe with his eyes on that title, and apparently Kenny Omega based on his interaction with MJF this past Wednesday, can MJF keep that promise to Adam Cole?
Well this Thursday night on Honor Club there are three teams who each have a goal to test that promise if and when the opportunity arises! The Gates of Agony, Action Andretti and Darius Martin, and The Workhorsemen all want a shot at the ROH World Tag Team Titles and on Thursday they will collide in a Three Way contest to establish their divisional dominance. Who will be the next duo to face MJF with those belts at stake? Perhaps this contest will help determine who those contenders will be!
“All Ego” Ethan Page vs. Tony Nese (w/ “Smart” Mark Sterling)
For “All Ego” Ethan Page, Ring of Honor has represented a sort-of rebirth, an opportunity to get his head on straight, figure out where he wants to go in professional wrestling, and to refill an ego that's been battered and bruised after so many ups-and-downs.
What that has meant for Ethan has been five consecutive victories in ROH competition, including last week's over “The Fallen Angel” Christopher Daniels, and clearly a desire to square up with ROH World Champion Eddie Kingston when the time comes. Page isn't making grandstand challenges to Eddie, rather looking to earn that title opportunity, but there's a man looking to latch onto the success Ethan Page is building and that's “Smart” Mark Sterling. Sterling wants to be standing alongside successful individuals, that way he can take some credit for said accomplishments, but when someone rejects what Sterling tries to offer, he's got someone like “The Premiere Athlete” Tony Nese at his side to dole out consequences.
This has been coming to a head over the course of the last several weeks, ever since Mark Sterling first tried to offer his services to “All Ego”, and now Ethan Page and Tony Nese will throwdown one-on-one!
Billie Starkz vs. Diamante
There's plenty of history between AEW Women's World Champion Athena, Diamante, and Mercedes Martinez; after all Athena is the woman who ended Mercedes' championship reign at FINAL BATTLE 2022 nearly 315 days ago. Since that time, part of it spent healing up nagging injuries and questioning her future in wrestling, Mercedes had to watch Athena break her record as longest reigning champion, had to watch her become the most successful champion when she broke Rok-C's record of successful defenses, and rack up an undefeated streak unlike any competitor in ROH's near-22 year history. They, along with Diamante, tried to play nice at AEW ALL OUT 2023 in a trios match, but that went rather terribly, and it has only turned up the heat on the growing rivalry.
Unfortunately for those surrounding Athena, specifically her Minion in Training Billie Starkz, it means there's a target on their back as well, and we all saw what that meant last week on Honor Club. So after suffering that humiliation, Starkz will have a chance to both even the score, and hopefully impress Athena, when she takes on Diamante in their first singles match!
Will this be a night where Athena's M.I.T steps up and wins the approval of the AEW Women's World Champion, or will it be Diamante and Mercedes Martinez who leave them laying once again?
