RING OF HONOR TOP 10: September 30, 2019

Yes, another all new feature! You didn’t think we’d leave ROH out did you?

Each week, we’ll be ranking the top 10 wrestlers and teams in ROH, based on wins and losses and title matches on ROH TV and PPVs.¬†Weekly scores depreciate, so, for example a win this week is worth more than a win a month ago.

This week’s #1 is the now-former ROH World Champion Matt Taven. Taven lost his title to RUSH in the Death Before Dishonor PPV main event on Sunday. It will be interesting to see where Taven goes from here – will he get a rematch? Meanwhile, RUSH finds himself at #4 with a slew of fresh championship competitors.

ROH World Television Champion Shane Taylor is your #2. Taylor was able to defend his TV title against not one but THREE men in a Fatal Fourway on Sunday. This includes Tracy Wiliams of Lifeblood and #10 Flip Gordon, as well as Dragon Lee, who wasn’t even originally scheduled for the match. It’s well known that Taylor is on his way out of ROH, so it’ll be interesting to see what happens with his belt.

The ROH World Six Man Tag Team Champions Villain Enterprises rank at #3. The title wasn’t defended at DBD, but leader Marty Scrull was able to advance in the ROH World Title #1 contender tournament and PCO defeated Kenny King. Brody King, unfortunately, fell in a Pre-Show match to #8 Jeff Cobb. Cobb used to be a heavy favorite to hold the ROH World Title, but these days that looks pretty far away.

The ROH World Tag Team Champions, The Briscoes are ranked at #5. They defeated #6 Lifeblood’s Bandido & Mark Haskins to retain on Sunday. The 11x champs are starting to run out of challenges, so it’s time for some fresh blood in the ROH tag team ranks.

Silas Young is ranked at #7, in spite of a tag team loss on Sunday to the Bouncers. Silas had a very good run at the recent Global Wars Espectacular events.

In at #9 is 2x former ROH World Champion Jay Lethal, who was bested by Jonathan Gresham on PPV. Last time Lethal went on a losing streak, he bounced back and won the ROH Title. The question is, is this the beginning of a losing streak?
