BUSHI and Tetsuya Naito vs. The Kingdom (Matt Taven and Vinny Marseglia) (ROH War of the Worlds- Toronto-May 7, 2017)

This is technically heel versus heel, but the Kingdom suck so the fans naturally gravitate toward Los Ingobernables. Taven takes the cheap route and makes fun of the local basketball game followed by a gay joke directed at fans. What a godawful generic promo. Thus far, the upcoming NJPW Dominion PPV has mentioned more than ROH’s PPV a few days later. Marseglia attacks Naito from behind and they get the early advantage. Naito does the fake dive, and Taven takes advantage of the posing. It’s amazing to me that Taven has been a prominent member of the ROH roster for five years and is also getting booked in CMLL. I guess NJPW is considering bringing him back again as well. I just don’t get it. Taven and Naito botch a powerbomb spot. Things actually got pretty sloppy in the second half with guys not being in the right spot. BUSHI blow green mist in Marseglia’s face. Low blow and Destino end it. Couldn’t even get a clean win over the Kingdom.

Marseglia is a guy with an interesting look and a clear skillset, but I’m not sure how being in the Kingdom benefits him long term.  He did have an awkward moment or two but otherwise looked solid.

Winner (s)/Rating: Los Ingobernables/**
