Ring Of Honor Showdown Results (3/30/12) – Ft Lauderdale, Florida

Back from intermission and we’re still experiencing horrible audio delays. Kelly and McGuinness set up a video package for the next match which will see Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team taking on Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander.

Alexander and Coleman are the first two men to make their way out to the ring, and they get a pretty favorable reaction for a couple of guys who are largely unknown outside of a few other ROH appearances.

Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team are out next, and Haas and Benjamin draw a lot of heat from the fans in attendance.

Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team vs. Caprice Coleman and Cedric Alexander

WGTT forgo the handshake and Haas flips off the two men and he and Benjamin attack instead. Alexander is able to clothesline Shelton over the top rope before he and Coleman double team Haas, sending him to the outside with a dropkick. Shelton rolls back into the ring and catches a double dropkick, then a big neckbreaker before being rolled to the outside. Both men go for dives, but both miss. Hass tosses Coleman up to the apron, and he’s caught with a superkick from Shelton. Haas rolls Caprice back into the ring and Shelton goes to work, hitting a delay belly to back suplex. Haas tags into the match and kicks at Coleman’s gut before grating his boot across Coleman’s face.

Haas kicks Coleman in the midsection hard before taking him into the corner and yanking on his arms, pulling them backward. A distraction to the ref allows Shelton to continue the assault. Benjamin tags into the match and sends Coleman into Haas’ knees before hitting a big spinebuster for two. Shelton picks Coleman up to his feet and tosses him out to the floor. Haas takes Coleman over and behind the referee’s back, suplexes him on the barricade.

Shelton takes things back into the ring and slams Coleman to the mat, where he’s splashed by Haas, and then kicked hard in the back. Haas locks in a rear chin lock, but Alexander is able to fight out of it pretty quickly. Alexander springboards off the middle rope, but he’s caught by Haas and driven down hard into the mat. Shelton tags in and kicks away at Coleman’s back before standing on him for a cocky pin. Shelton taunts Coleman before hitting him with repeated right hands, knees to the gut and a big belly to belly suplex for another near fall. Haas comes back into the ring while the ref is distracted and attacks Coleman, gaining another near fall.

Haas hits a jumping knee drop for another two count before locking in a rear chin lock with body scissors. Coleman is able to fight up to his feet, but he’s clubbed back down to the mat. Shelton makes the blind tag, and WGTT put Coleman down, but Coleman hits a double dropkick, ducks a splash, and leaps off Haas’ back to make the tag. Alexander comes in taking out both Haas and Benhamin with big kicks, and a bulldog off the ropes to Shelton, but a pin is broken up by Haas. Coleman hits Haas with a springboard cross body, when a splash/dive combo to Haas, then Benjamin. Cedric backdrops Haas in the ring and hits a running forearm in the corner. Alexander seats Haas on the top and Coleman leaps up to hit a hurricanrana. Alexander goes to the top, but it’s broken up. Haas hits Coleman with an Olympic slam, and Shelton leaps to the top rope and launches Alexander with a top rope belly to belly suplex. Shelton makes the pin and this one is over.

Winners: Wrestling’s Greatest Tag Team

Again, I’ve lost my feed. This really isn’t a great impression for ROH to be making here, especially if there are a lot of first time fans ordering tonight. I don’t know that I’ve ever experienced streaming quality this bad from an ROH iPPV before, but I know if I had never seen one, this wouldn’t be impressing me.
