ROH Death Before Dishonor PPV Results

ROH Death Before Dishonor 2023

The results are in for the Death Before Dishonor ROH PPV featuring six championship matches on the main broadcast.

Ring of Honor’s second pay-per-view took place on Friday, July 21st from the CURE Insurance Arena in Trenton, New Jersey. There were some injuries leading up to some of the matches on the card, which led to some changes in the lineup over the last couple of weeks.

Two matches that were originally booked for Death Before Dishonor were Samoa Joe vs. Mark Briscoe and Claudio Castagnoli vs. Eddie Kingston. Since Briscoe suffered a major knee injury, Joe faced Dalton Castle instead.

As for the Claudio-Kingston match, that didn’t happen because Kingston is wrestling for New Japan Pro-Wrestling to work the G1 Climax tournament, which lasts from July 15th to August 13th. Claudio’s opponent at Death Before Dishonor was Pac, which is a match that was announced after AEW Dynamite this past Wednesday when Pac walked out on Claudio and his teammates in the Blood & Guts match.

The ROH brand is featured exclusively on ROH’s weekly series ROH Honor Club TV on their streaming service Honor Club. There are sometimes ROH matches on AEW shows like Dynamite, Collision and Rampage as well. The commentary team was Ian Riccaboni and Caprice Coleman.

There were four matches on the pre-show. Here are the results of the eight matches on the main show.

The Lucha Bros were the champions going into the match.
