Match 1
ROH Pure Tournament Round 1 Match
Rust Taylor vs “Hot Sauce” Tracy Williams
(referee: Joe Mandak)

Show/Hide Results

Result: Tracy Williams wins via submission with a crossface
Time: 14:25 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Very good match. Both men have strong grappling skills, and they spent a lot of time on the mat trading holds. Williams looked like he was gaining an advantage early in the match, but Taylor pushed back and really began to dominate later. Taylor did a really good job of baiting Williams and then countering Williams’ attacks into various holds, and Taylor also forced Williams to use all three of his rope breaks in quick succession later in the match. Both men were evenly matched, but I think Taylor looked a bit stronger tonight overall.


A look at Tony Deppen and his life.

A look at PJ Black, shamans, and witch doctors.


ROH Pure Tournament Round 1 Match
Tony Deppen vs “The Darewolf” PJ Black w/ Brian Johnson
(referee: Todd Sinclair)

Show/Hide Results

Result: PJ Black wins via pinfall after a crucifix driver
Time: 12:06 (1 break)

Match Thoughts
Very good match. The first part of the match felt like PJ Black might just dominate Deppen and have an easy first round, but Deppen got some good offense later in the match. Black helped Deppen look really good, and by the end of the match Black was on the defensive and looking for a big move to shift the momentum back in his favor. Black definitely had the better counters throughout the match, and despite Deppen’s fighting spirit, Black was able to regain control of the match before time ran out.


“They have lied your entire life. The politicians, the corporations, the media, everyone. But the instant you realize you’re being lied to, you will finally control your narrative.”


Show Impressions
This was another good show. I appreciated how different the two matches were tonight. The first one was mostly all grappling, while the second match was more of a straightforward American pro wrestling match.

Match of the Night
Rust Taylor vs Tracy Williams
I really enjoyed the grappling on display in tonight’s opening match.
