ROH TV Preview: STP, LFI Collide In Eight-Man Tag Match; Women’s Title Tournament Semifinals: Love vs. Rok-C; Alize vs. Adora

September 1, 2021

,Here’s a preview of this weekend’s episode of “Ring of Honor Wrestling:” Shane Taylor Promotions (Shane Taylor, Soldiers of Savagery’s Moses and Kaun, O’Shay Edwards) vs. La Facción Ingobernable (RUSH, Dragon Lee, Kenny King, Bestia del Ring) Taylor has been waiting patiently for the right time to exact revenge on his former friend, King, and the rest of LFI. That time is upon us. During Taylor’s ROH World Title Match with then-champion RUSH in February, King turned on Taylor by hitting him over the head with a chair, which allowed RUSH to retain his title. Afterward, Taylor said he’s giving King a pass for now because he has other business to tend to. “As long as you stay on your side of the street, you’ll be safe,” Taylor warned. “But come back over to my side of the street … Kenny, I’m gonna make your mother cry for you.” King crossed the street when LFI set its sights on the ROH World Six-Man Tag Team Title held by Taylor and Soldiers of Savagery (Moses and Kaun). That match will take place at the Death Before Dishonor pay-per-view on Sept. 12.  This eight-man tag match will provide a sneak preview, and one of the teams will head into Death Before Dishonor with momentum on their side. ROH Women’s World Title Tournament Semifinal: Angelina Love vs. Rok-C To put this match into context, Love has been wrestling for more years than Rok-C has been alive. However, it’s difficult to say which one of them has the advantage. Despite being a 21-year veteran, the seven-time former world champion has not lost a step. Despite being just 19 years old, “The Prodigy” has six years of experience and is wise in the ring beyond her years. Love, who entered the tournament as one of the favorites to win it, received a first-round bye before facing the monstrous Max The Impaler in the quarterfinals. Love won the match by disqualification but absorbed a lot of punishment, specifically to her left shoulder.  Rok-C put the rest of the tournament competitors on notice when she knocked off former Women of Honor World Champion Sumie Sakai in the first round. She went on to score a hard-fought victory over a determined Quinn McKay in the quarterfinals. Love has a proven track record in big matches, but Rok-C has shown that this stage isn’t too big for her.  ROH Women’s World Title Tournament Semifinal: Miranda Alize vs. Trish Adora Alize is 2-0 against Adora, having defeated her in a singles match in May and a tag match the following month.  It’s possible that Adora, a skilled technician, just doesn’t match up well with the high-flying “Lucha Baddie.” It’s also possible that Adora, an ardent chess player, learned from those losses and will come into this match with a different strategy. Alize defeated Alex Gracia in the first round of the tournament and Nicole Savoy, a popular pick to win the tournament, in the quarterfinals. Alize considers Gracia and Savoy two of her best friends, but she was all business against both of them. Adora beat two talented, hard-hitting veterans to advance to the semifinals. “The Afro-Punk” took down Marti Belle in the first round and former world champion Allysin Kay, another one of the favorites to win the tournament, in the quarterfinals. In addition to contrasting in-ring styles, Alize and Adora have much different personalities. Alize is brash, while Adora is humble. What they have in common is a burning desire to become ROH Women’s World Champion. The winners of the semifinal matches will meet in the finals at Death Before Dishonor.
