Number One Contender’s Match: Jay Lethal vs. Silas Young vs. Hangmen Page vs. Jay White (ROH- April 29, 2017)

By virtue of winning an eight man tag team match weeks earlier, these four have a chance at becoming a number one contender. It’s a three way match as Christopher Daniels will face Cody Rhodes and whomever wins here. Probably because old Cody doesn’t want to job again. ROH hasn’t had a buzzworthy match in literally months, and this was just a perfunctory four way match. Perfectly fine (thankfully no tag rules), but this was nothing special. With everything out there, it’s amazing how ROH is booking television like the early 80s or 90s. There’s nothing compelling going on with this place, and Cody Rhodes certainly isn’t adding intrigue to the main event scene. In typical ROH fashion, no one is elevated. They go back to the Lethal well again as he wins after pinning Young following Lethal Injection. Each guy got some time to showcase their skills, but it never felt cohesive.

Winner (s)/Rating: Jay Lethal/**3/4
